Trunks' sword is an iconic weapon of unknown origin within the Dragon Ball verse. It was first used by the half Saiyan warrior during his battle against the future androids. Despite being unable to help against them, the sword yields a better result as Trunks goes back in time and faces Frieza and his father. With Trunks wielding the mighty blade, he is able to easily decimate Frieza. Although being Trunks' main weapon of choice, he has shown to be a capable fighter without it, not only easily holding up against far stronger foes than Frieza in hand to hand combat, but King Cold was also being unable to beat Trunks even when using the sword. Trunks' sword fights its last battle for a long time when Android 18 breaks it.
After many years, the sword makes a return, now repaired and ready for combat against some of the mightiest in all of the universe during the events of Dragon Ball Super. Donning a slightly different appearance but vastly superior power thanks to Trunks' training.
The sword seemingly had another downfall, with Fusion Zamasu snapping it in half. However through absorbing his and the ki of other humans into it, Trunks was able to have the sword undergo an entirely new transformation all together, thus gaining even greater power.

- Casually chopped Frieza, who just received a big boost in power through his mechanical transformation, into tiny slithers.
- Slashed at a fighter's armor, with the suit getting cut long after the attack was already made.
- Made half a dozen of Frieza's men drop just by drawing back into its sheath.
- Engaged in combat against Goku Black's ki blade (which was powerful enough to casually one shot Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta) without any damage.
- Completely annihilated Fusion Zamasu's body.
- Shining Sword Attack- A combination used by Trunks that utilizes both armed and unarmed martial arts. First he delivers a furious flurry of various hand strikes in the air, followed by a purposely lackluster energy beam. By distracting his opponent by that, he sneaks in and performs a rapid barage of sword slashes, reducing the fighter to small pieces. Trunks then decimates those pieces by firing a true ki attack towards it.
