Heyas! Please be sure to read over the forum's rules, specifically rule # 1 (grammar).

That said, I like Future Trunks with long hair the best. I guess that makes me somewhat strange, since... uhh.. I'm a guy and I'm attracted to him. Whatever. He just gets (finally) bad-ass after he reaches USSJ :P

I'm with you two I like the long haired Trunks most and I don't really know why I just do. He is definently cooler than the GT Trunks, thats my least favorite Trunks.

The first Marai Trunks - when he has his Capsule Corp. jacket and sword. Totally awesome.

I like long-haired Trunks, but because of how it looks in USSJ2 and because he's Future Trunks (hate hate HATE mainstream T!). I also like how he looked in movie 9.

Definitely Future Trunks (incidentally, "future" is "mirai" in Japanese, not "miari"). Despite having gone through hell in his own timeline, his experiences made him compassionate, sincere, and driven to his goals. An all-around good guy. His only real flaw is in trying to impress his father, who is stern, proud, and arrogant (not quite how he had idealized his long-dead paternal figure), although he does succeed somewhat in getting him to be less distant.

"Chibi" Trunks (or the Trunks of the normal timeline, which would include his GT incarnation), on the other hand, has been spoiled by living in wealth, with a family that gives him anything and everything he wants, and a father who more or less completely ignores him except for when they're sparring. This Trunks also tries to impress his father, but his attitude toward fighting is completely different. He actually enjoys it, and only really fights fun (even when the fate of the world is at stake). I don't think Goten's a very good influence either. :P

And as for how he turns out by GT... one can only imagine that a happy childhood followed by a bizarre (but traumatic) interlude, followed by the presidency of Capsule Corporation, all lead to a person becoming irretrievably out-of-character for the remainder of the series. :D

Adding GT Trunks to that list is almost offensive...he's an abomination, a deliberate character assasin on what was once one of the coolest character and Saiyan of all time.

I don't usually like going with the majority, but in this case Future Trunks (with long hair & saiyan combat suit) is my favourite. He's just totally bad-assed as USSJ2.

I just like Mirai Trunks. Whether he is short-haired or long-haired. I don't mind GT Trunks too much and well, as for Chibi Trunks, I definitely think he could've a used a good spanking a few times, as well as learn to be more respectful and less sneaky as he could sometimes be. But then, his mother had a bit of a sneaky side to her too. Remember at first when she met Goku in DB, she decided to trick him into coming with her on her search so she could be protected and then get the dragonballs and wish for herself.

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I like Chibi Trunks best. Mirai Trunks was annoying and lacked the personality and quirkiness that made the others so fun to watch. He was just... bland.

Hmm, definately a tie between movie 9 Trunks and USSJ2 Trunks. Chibi Trunks didnt really have much depth to him. He was a bratty, spoiled 8 year old. Suddenly, in GT, he resembles his future self. Big shock there, huh.

Grr... I smell someone bashing Goten... :x

That said, I'm just gonna jump on the wagon here and say I like Mirai Trunks the best. And I absolutely hate, hate, HATE Chibi Trunks.

Phew, I'm glad I said that. I can now proceed to more important things in life, like sitting in front of my computer staring blankly at the screen developing Carpel Tunnel Syndrom, while bidding on Samurai Pizza Cats Tapes on eBay.

At first I thought that Mirai Trunks was just the typical angsty bishounen, and Chibi Trunks was cute and funny.

Now, a few years later, I think that Mirai Trunks is a great character, and Chibi Trunks is bratty and spoiled, and he always gets poor Goten-chan into trouble. :(

Ooohhh, that's a toughie. Short-haired Mirai Trunks is the "classic" version, IMHO. But, I gotta say I think I like long-haired Trunks more (even if he's not around as long as short-haired Trunks). He seems more badass, in a way.

I really like Mirai Trunks in both ways but especially with his sword - he was very kickass when he used that thing effectively in his introduction, but he got some neat stuff for USSJ look also - but its the personality that I like, hes kind, caring, prideful and down to earth.

Chibi trunks needs many many spankings though :/

Piccolo should have hit he and Goten more than just that one instance. But I sure enjoyed that one instance! :wink:
