Proper Japanese Title: Mirai kara Kita Shōnen (未来から来た少年)
As the battle on Namek turns the entire planet into a fireball, Goku and Freeza fight it out to the end--and Goku makes a fateful decision. Awaiting Goku's return from outer space, Earth's heroes are shocked to find another, faster spaceship heading towards them--Freeza is back, stronger than ever, swearing to destroy the Earth before Goku can get there to defend it! But as the heroes prepare to make one last stand, another mysterious warrior appears out of nowhere. His name is Trunks, and he has come to warn the heroes about an enemy who makes Freeza look like a walk in the park...
Freeza is beaten thanks to Super Saiyan Son Goku, who has overwhelming power. Still, Goku is caught up in the explosion of Planet Namek. However, Freeza was not dead, and along with his father King Cold, he came to Earth. This was a hopeless situation, but a mysterious boy with a sword appeared and in a single instant defeated them both. He was the Super Saiyan warrior Trunks, son of Vegeta and Bulma, who had come from a tragic future. He spoke of the Artificial Humans, mighty enemies that would appear before Goku and co. in three years.
