"I can feel it...share your power with me. Here we go, everyone. We'll defeat Zamasu!"
— Future Trunks forging the Sword of Hope

The Sword of Hope (ホープソード Hōpu Sōdo)[1] is a powerful energy blade utilized by Future Trunks in his Super Saiyan Rage form.


When the hopes and energies of everyone are gathered like a Spirit Bomb, Trunks then absorbs the power into his body — causing his Light Sword to become far larger and more powerful with his ki embedded, creating a rapid mixture of blue and golden ki particles before turning a bright white.

Usage and Power

Future Trunks utilizes this technique to beat back Fused Zamasu, breaks his Violent Fierce God Slicer, and then finishes him with the Final Hope Slash.

While Future Trunks does not use this state in the manga version of the storyline, he does appear in it on the alternate cover for The Decisive Battle! Farewell, Trunks!.

While the Sword of Hope is activated the user's ki drains causing the attack to end when the user is out of ki. Pressing the Jump button allows the Sword of Hope user to perform the Final Hope Slash which uses up the remainder of the user's ki and deactivates the Sword of Hope.

In the Warrior of Hope Saga, Future Trunks creates an even stronger version of the Sword of Hope using energy given to him by Gohan, Piccolo, Future Gohan, Teen Future Trunks, GT Trunks, GT Goku, Pan, and Xeno Trunks through the rift in time-space created earlier by Goku Black's misuse of the Time Ring in conjunction with his Sickle of Sorrow. According to Elder Kai, this energy was necessary in order to kill Grotesque Zamasu who is implied to be stronger due to the Supervillain power-up he had received when he first fused. Chronoa surmises that everyone sent their energy after feeling his desire to protect the integrity of the future.
