Future Gohan & Trunks Get a Heartwarming Moment Together in Moving New Dragon Ball Fanart (2024)

Summary

  • Gohan and Trunks share a rare moment of peace before Gohan's tragic death at the hands of the Androids in new fanart by Kakeru (@DBSKAKERU1).
  • Kakeru captures the essence of Dragon Ball with their stunning art style, and is known to create unique, heartfelt, and downright epic images that resonate with fans.
  • The fanart depicts Gohan reading and Trunks taking a nap, showing the pair enjoying a brief respite before they face their dark and inevitable fate in this alternate Dragon Ball timeline.

In an alternate Dragon Ball timeline where evil Androids ravaged the Earth and killed nearly every Z-Warrior, in the process, Gohan and Trunks still fight the good fight in the hopes of defeating their enemies and restoring some semblance of peace to their shattered world. Thanks to a new fanart image set before Gohan falls to the Androids, Gohan and Trunks share the heartwarming moment they’ve always deserved — something they never had enough of while Gohan was alive.

Recently shared on X by Kakeru (@DBSKAKERU1), this is far from the first time this artistic talent has uploaded Dragon Ball images that are the spitting image of what the late and great Akira Toriyama was putting out, as well as what the current Dragon Ball Super artist, Toyotarou, is illustrating.

Previously sharing art featuring Goku throwing down with Broly, Dragon Ball GT’s Super Saiyan Trunks saving Pan from danger, and even a “What If?” image of Vegeta becoming the King of all Saiyans, Kakeru doesn’t miss when creating unique Dragon Ball art, with this latest piece being no exception.

Fanart Design By Kakeru (@DBSKAKERU1)

A sketch that focuses on the calm before the storm that is the death of Gohan at the hands of Androids 17 and 18, this fanart precedes what will become the defining event of young Future Trunks’ life and is a moment he’ll never forget. Eventually turning Super Saiyan after he loses his mentor and friend, seeing Trunks share a simple relaxing moment with Gohan should be all fans need to know to understand how important this image is to Dragon Ball lore, especially considering that in this alternate timeline, moments like this are few and far between.

A midday piece set somewhere deep in nature, Kakeru draws Gohan settled up against a tree as he reads peacefully, his glasses stuck to his face along with a satisfied grin no doubt stemming from his love of education drilled into him by his mother, Chi-Chi. Sprawled out next to him with his head resting on his presumably friendly furry friend, Trunks catches up on some sleep, something that wouldn’t normally be possible considering almost every other moment the pair share together has them trying not to die as they battle the Androids with everything they have.

Unfortunately for both Gohan and Trunks, this fanart could very well be documenting the final moment of peace these two Saiyan warriors would share before that fateful day when Gohan is murdered by Android 17 and 18, making this artwork even more important for fans to check out. Dragon Ball’s Gohan and Trunks have their work cut out for them in an alternate future they can’t escape, so it’s good to see Kakeru (@DBSKAKERU1) giving them a well-deserved breather before they plunge head-first back into the darkness of their reality.

From the creative mind of Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball is a mega multimedia franchise that spans back to the 1980s. Dragon Ball expanded quickly, starting as a serialized manga for Weekly Shonen Jump in Japan. It made its way overseas via manga and an anime adaptation that is enjoyed worldwide. Dragon Ball was the initial starting animated series that followed the adventures of the young Son Goku as he sought after the Dragon Balls. These mystical orbs would grant the wish of any who gathered them together. Then, the series would branch off into the immensely popular Dragon Ball Z, which followed Goku as an adult and featured high-intensity battles and Goku's never-ending search to be the strongest. The series has also enjoyed several popular video game adaptations and continues to release several new animated series and theatrical films up to the recent popular Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
