Re: Is there a need for the existence of this specific Trunks' timeline?

You'll have to explain how this contradicts my theory? Hmmmm... I may have made a mistake here. The flashback shows Dr. Gero being killed in the lab, while he was working on Cell. He was already a cyborg at that point. I assumed he didn't yet go out and got beaten by the Z-senshi, but he might have...

Re: Is there a need for the existence of this specific Trunks' timeline?

- I personally assumed that Gero always intended to be made into an Android, even in Future Trunks' Timeline. My headcanon is that 19 and 20 did show up in Future Trunks' Timeline and Gero was forced to retreat just as in the show; Trunks shows up after he's already on the ropes after all. So to me...

Re: Is there a need for the existence of this specific Trunks' timeline?

Ultimately we don't know exactly how the Cell-less encounter with the Androids the Z Fighters had went down, and can only speculate. We might be able to piece together the majority of events in the unseen encounter with the artificial humans. The timing of Goku’s illness is probably affected by Tru...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

I disagree, since every time Trunks arrives back in his Timeline 1 future, it's after his departure date, every time. Not every time: after meeting Goku, the Trunks from T3 plans to return to 784 in the future, but that point lies before an earlier arrival date. The original Trunks had already been...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

The one where Cell kills Trunks occurs first. As I mentioned, this is born out of my theorized Timeline 2-a, where the Androids of Timeline 2 are defeated without Cell having showed up yet, then Trunks returns to Timeline 1, and is then killed by Cell after he has matured to his humanoid form and l...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

It's me trying to work out where the bloody hell Cell comes from in Trunk's Timeline 1 future. We see in the epilogue content of the Cell Saga that Trunks is next to his Time Machine and intends to visit the Z Fighters to tell him about his defeat of 17 and 18, and is then attacked by Cell. Conside...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

Yeah, now that I think about it that would be the logical way to put it. After all, Cell arrives in 763, a year before that, and I consider that a new Timeline because it affects everything after it, which I should probably classify as Timeline 3 (since without that, Timeline 2 has a version where ...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

To me that question doesn't really apply. From Future Trunk's perspective as he's setting the date on the Time Machine in Timeline 1, you could say that "all" of Timeline 2 is open to him, he just has to specify what point in time he wants to pop in to. Hmmm, I disagree: everything before 764 (at l...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

Perhaps this question helps me to understand your theory: at the moment that Trunks was about to visit the altered timeline for the second time, was the year 767 in the past or the future of that timeline? In the future of Timeline 2. As Trunks realizes later on, anything he does in Timeline 2 will...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

Neither, technically speaking, as it depends on how long after his departure time he set the Time Machine to return. Let's say that he left at 10:00am. He could set his Time Machine to return at 10:15am, so to Future Bulma he'd only have been gone fifteen minutes. Think of it this way: when Trunks ...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

We do need to define "the past" a little more, though. Trunks' second trip goes to 767, but which 767? Easy, the altered one he created from his first trip. Again I personally believe that Trunks' Time Machine hopes back and forth between select timelines and their "latest" variants as described in...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

What exactly counts as a serious alteration in your view? Dunno, anything more significant than kicking an innocuous rock I suppose. And when Cell goes back further, does that not count as a serious alteration? This wouldn't morph timeline 2, but create a new one if I understand your logic correctl...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

My logic on it is that when you do your first Time Travel trip and make a serious alternation, you create a new timeline that diverges off the one you came from, but doesn't chronically affect it in any way. Furthermore, the Time Machine itself is linked to the new Timeline you made, which is why T...

Re: Is there a need for the existence

I still wonder, if we are ever going to get a definite breakdown of all the timelines like Daizenshuu 7 did, now that Super has established there were 5 in total, before Goku Black and only 1 was implied to be the result of Trunks' meddling. I hope that they'd give us an overview of the rules of ti...

Doesn't U4 only have eight warriors? In episode 102, the Zen-O's began with an overview on their uhh, KamiPads and showed two empty spaces on U4.

Re: The timelines from the Goku Black arc

You list the three time travel rules that Qaaman uses in his theory. It might be helpful if you list the new rules that your theory is built upon. For instance: when a god kills a god, a copy of each timeline is created (according to your theory). If you state all the rules with which your theory op...

Re: The History of Ever

I just noticed that the day the artifical humans arrive, May 12th, is the anniversary of the Red Ribbon Army's defeat. It makes sense that Dr. Gero would choose this date for the revenge of the Red Ribbon Army, but I'm surprised that Toriyama remembered this detail, what with his tendency to forget ...
