Concept and creation
Xeno Trunks was originally going to achieve Super Saiyan 4 during the Dark King Mechikabura Saga, however the developers could not decide on the hair color (purple or black) and so it was scrapped in favor of Super Saiyan God.
Trunks dons clothing inspired by various military uniforms from World War I and II. Trunks wears a World War-esque black trench coat with a fur-lined collar and an olive green sweater underneath, olive green pants with lighter-colored bandages around his shins and brown colored laced boots which. Additionally, Trunks also carries a new sword, while wearing these clothes. Xeno Trunks retains his original lavender hair color. After training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Xeno Trunks' hair grows longer and he keeps it in a ponytail.
Xeno Trunks' personality is the same as that of his main counterparts.
Xeno Trunks went through a near identical life to Future Trunks - albeit he traveled back in time to the world the Xeno incarnations of the Dragon Team inhabited. He notably lived through the Android Saga exactly as his counterpart did.
