Dark Goku, also known as Evil Goku or Black Goku, is making his way to Dragon Ball Super! Beginning on June 12, the next arc in the series officially begins with episode 47, “SOS From the Future! A New Dark Enemy Appears!!”. In it, Future Trunks, despite being so strong, barely escapes from his timeline with his life. His future was supposed to be peaceful, however, a new enemy known as Dark Goku has appeared to stir trouble.
For now, take a look at the first image of Dark Goku along with Trunks and Mai. This is Trunks 17 years in the future. Now, we at Saiyan Island have heard different rumors flying around in regards to this Trunks. It’s very possible this is not the Future Trunks from Dragon Ball Z’s Cell Saga, but instead a Future Trunks from an alternate timeline. We aren’t sure, but one indicator is Mai is with him and she appears to be the same age as Future Trunks.
We know from watching Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Super, Mai was accidentally wished to be a kid again and that she appeared to be the same age as Kid Trunks. Could in an alternate timeline Mai and Future Trunks be partners? We did see potential for it in the current timeline.
As for Dark Goku, he looks to be wearing a Potara Earring. Could he have fused with somebody that made him evil and what is his purpose? We’ll have to find out on Dragon Ball Super! Saiyan Island hopes to update you with additional information as it’s revealed.
