Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Dark Demon Realm Mission! (スーパードラゴンボールヒーローズ暗黒魔界ミッション! Sūpā Doragon Bōru Hīrōzu Ankoku Makai Misshon!) is a spin-off manga. It tells the story of the conflict between the Time Patrol and the Dark Empire. It is written and illustrated by Yoshitaka Nagayama.

Following the end of Part 1, the manga was followed up by Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission!!. After a hiatus of over a year, the manga resumed with Part 2 that ran concurrently alongside the "Universe Mission!!" manga. On February 1st 2020, both manga finished their publication and were replaced by Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Big Bang Mission!!!.



The series is a sequel to Dragon Ball Heroes: Super Charisma Mission! It has its own continuity and version of events based upon the plot points found in the Online, Xenoverse and Heroes video games. However the bulk of the story is based upon the original story material that debuted in the Super Dragon Ball Heroes, Dark Empire and Dark King Mechikabura Sagas.

The story follows Xeno Trunks soon after the defeat of Cell in his own timeline, becoming a Time Patroller and assisting Chronoa in confronting the Time Breakers, later known as the Dark Empire Forces from the Demon Realm. The Dark Empire having released their leader, Mechikabura from the Crack of Time, plan to retrieve artifacts known as the Dark Dragon Balls, which have scattered across time and space, in order to restore him back into the prime of his youth. However, the Dark Dragon Balls have merged with past villains, giving them new found might. Now it is up to Xeno Trunks, along with new allies such as Xeno Goku and Xeno Vegeta from stopping their plans from coming to fruition.

Timeline placement

The first chapter showcases Future Trunks some time after he defeats Cell in his own timeline being teleported away to an unknown period in the future where he makes his debut as a Time Patroller. The "Xeno" world allies he gains along the way seem to be from after the events of the Shadow Dragon Saga of Dragon Ball GT.
