"The Other Outcome" (もうひとつの結末 Mō Hitotsu no Ketsumatsu) is the two hundred twenty fifth chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the four hundred nineteenth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
The cover shows Future Trunks giving a thumbs up as he has a smile on his face.
The chapter begins with Future Trunks coming back to his own timeline to meet his mother Future Bulma. She is shocked at how much her son has grown, which causes him to talk about the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, but Future Bulma asks him how it had go. Future Trunks then tells his mother that Goku died, but Gohan avenged him. Future Trunks then shares his thought about how Vegeta went crazy when Cell killed him with his Full Power Death Beam, which leaves Future Bulma surprised. A radio then announces that the Androids are attacking Parsley City, and Future Trunks decides that it is his cue.
As Future Trunks races to the scene, Future Android 18 is seen blowing up large portions of the city, and Future Android 17 comments on how she could not beat a video game, which makes her tell Future 17 to shut up. An old man tries to shoot Future 17, but fails. Future 17 then goes to kill the man, until Future Trunks shows up on the scene.
Future Android 17 can't believe Trunks was foolish enough to try again after how badly he was beaten last time they met, and Future Android 18 wants to get rid of Trunks once and for all. Future Trunks, however, easily deflects Future Android 18's Ki Blast, and counters with one of his own, annihilating her.
Future Android 17 is stunned by how easily Future Trunks destroyed Future Android 18, and then Future Trunks attacks him, kicking him away, then destroying him with another Ki Blast. He finally believes everything is over, but no. There's still one last problem to take care of.
Three years later, Future Trunks is preparing to go back in time to tell everyone he managed to destroy the Androids, but then tells his mother to step back, knowing that Future Cell has arrived. He knows Future Cells' plan is to kill Future Trunks, take his time machine, and go back to the past so he can absorb Android 17 and Android 18 to obtain his perfect form. This time, Future Trunks isn't going to let it happen, and he's going to put an end to everything.
