Overview

For someone who didn’t have a big role in the Dragon Ball Z: Super Android #13 Movie, SP Trunks PUR is an unexpectedly devastating Fighter in Dragon Ball Legends.

While he would primarily work in a Vegeta Family Team, his “Preparations for the Future” Unique Ability also gives  a Damage Buff to any Hybrid Saiyan as well as his family members. Those are far from the only Team compositions for this Fighter, as his Sagas From the Movies Tag and Super Saiyan Support Abilities make him one of the most versatile Fighters Tag-wise.

Even Future finds room for him on its optimal Core thanks to its unique selection of Fighters that synergize with Trunks.

In his Timed Transformed State, Trunks' is capable of unprecedented levels of Combo extension and Damage. Even if his Transformation runs out, he's given Damage Buffs and extra Ki as a parting gift - assuming the Fight even lasts that long. 

All in all, SP Trunks PUR is a top tier Fighter who truly unleashes his potential when fielded alongside his Family. It's no small feat for a Fighter to have this many Tags and be strong on all of their Teams. 

Strengths

Flash Blade

Supplemented by his Extra Move, his Special Move is more or less a mini-Rising Rush damage wise. His Extra Move automatically gives him 20% Special Move Damage by default, but gets increasingly more powerful the more cards are destroyed in his hand when used.

This Special Move Arts of his is a Blast-Armor possessing charge maneuver that halves his Target's Sustained Damage Cut and even Inflicts Heavy Bleed.

Preparations for the Future

SP Teen Trunks PUR is enough of a problem as it is, but his Supportive Unique Ability also makes his Teammates hit hard as well.

The whopping +35% Damage Buff to Hybrid Saiyan or
Vegeta Family Fighters - as well as Super Saiyan Fighters post-transformation - is a serious Offensive Boost, establishing Trunks as one of the best Offensive Supporters.  

Not Over Till it's Over

Trunks' toolkit affords him multiple ways to extend his already deadly Combos. After his Transformation, his Main Ability not only Heals his HP and replenishes his Ki - it Draws an entire new hand of Arts Cards. To top it all off, this Ability becomes available a mere 5 Timer Counts after Transforming. 

With this in tow, Trunks can accelerate Card usage to get his Team a Rising Rush faster, bring his Health out of the danger zone, or even set a Teammate up with a full hand and Ki to use it. As a final strategy, when Trunks' Transformation Timer elapses, he gets +20% Damage Inflicted and a free 40 Ki to keep the pressure on. 

Weaknesses

One dimensional Offensively

SP Trunks PUR does a little bit of everything, except Blast Damage. His toolkit doesn't Support his Blast Attack stat as much as his Strike, and his Mixed Arts Cards held don’t do much for him either.

Trunks' Ability to replace or destroys his Cards keeps his combos smooth despite this, but it does result in lackluster Damage output when these options to subvert this deficiency aren't available. 

Offers Little Beyond Combat

Trunks Fighters are known to have mediocre Z-Abilities and unfortunately, SP Teen Trunks PUR is no exception to this trend. The Future Avenger only offers his Tag Teams a Buff to Blast Defense, which is by no means useless, but it ultimately lowers his Team's Damage output.

Devoting a Team Slot to a Fighter who only Buffs a single Defensive Stat is not ideal; this aspect of Trunks holds him back. Additionally, he only gives this Buff to Hybrid Saiyan and Vegeta Family Allies, so his synergy is limited when used on Tag Teams aside from those.

Team Synergy

Vegeta Family

SP Teen Trunks PUR is one of the Vegeta Family Tag's best Offensive Supporters. His massive Buff to Inflicted Damage turns the Tag's most deadly combat units, SP Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Vegeta GRN and SP Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta RED, into engines of destruction.

His paternal movie co-star, SP Vegeta BLU makes for an ideal partner for Trunks as well - the two were designed to be used together. Trunks might do little to counteract the Tag's Defensive weaknesses, but his Offensive Support and versatile toolkit will make him a cornerstone of this Tag for a very long time. 

Hybrid Saiyan

SP Teen Trunks PUR enables this Tag to do insane amounts of Damage with his Support. 

SP SSJ Youth Gohan YEL is this Trunks' comrade-in-arms. Gohan contributes to the Team's fortitude before Transforming, and after doing so, Trunks' Offensive Buffs turn Goku's Successor into one of the most explosive Fighters in the game. 

SP SSJ Teen Gohan BLU is another excellent partner for SP Teen Trunks PUR - even though his inclusion necessitates a slight hit to his Bulk and Damage due to the lack of Son Family Allies.

Because the three of them share the Sagas From the Movies Tag, they have a wide array of available bench options too. 

Super Saiyan

SP SSJ Bardock BLU seems to always get new toys to play with. SP Trunks PUR after Transforming is devastating enough as it is, but SP SSJ Bardock BLU enabling him to land Critical Hits can make him insanely oppressive.

This Team, however, does have problems with fragility and synergy, making it more of a niche pick for a Tag Team for SP Teen Trunks PUR. 

Sagas From the Movies

Sagas From the Movies is a strange choice for SP Teen Trunks PUR, as his Offensive Support does not extend to this Tag, but nevertheless this Tag can include Trunks easily.

SP Hero Tapion RED desires Trunks Fighters to unlock his full Defensive potential, and can buff Trunks' Damage considerably. Even though Trunks himself cannot reciprocate Tapion's Buff, the two of them can work well together. One-sided relationships aren't always bad. 

Alternatively, entire Sagas From the Movies cores can be made out of Vegeta Family and Hybrid Saiyan Fighters, which opens up avenues for this Team. An interesting option is EX Kid Trunks GRN, whose constant background radiation of Buffs significantly enhances SP Teen Trunks PUR's effectiveness in combat. 

SP Super Saiyan Vegeta BLU, SP Vegeta BLU, and Trunks himself form a solid Blue Color Counter, Vegeta Family Sagas From the Movies Tag Team can be constructed, one that benefits from the Zenkai-Ability power of Zenkai 1 SP LSSJ Broly BLU

Future

If it seemed SP Teen Trunks PUR didn't have enough Team options, he's also optimal on the Future Tag.

The key component of his viability on this Tag is his synergy with SP SSGSS Vegeta GRN, who exchange Support Buffs back and forth with ease, and SP SSR Goku Black RED, whose Debuffs give Trunks far greater Damage potential. 

Trunks works well with other strong Future Fighters like SP Gohan GRN and SP Super Saiyan Gohan YEL. His Support turns them into absolute behemoths, especially SP Gohan GRN, whose utility is excellent in a meta rife with Androids
