"SOS From the Future" (未来からのSOS, Mirai kara no Esu·Ō·Esu) is the fourteenth chapter of the Dragon Ball Super manga, and of Part IV of the manga.


In the alternate future, Future Trunks manages to successfully escape from an unknown malicious entity. Afterwards, Future Trunks manages to find Mai. He sorrowfully tells Mai that his mother sacrificed herself to make the fuel for the Time Machine and that the malicious entity called Black, now has the ability to sense ki. Future Trunks tells Mai that thanks to Bulma, they can go to the past. Trunks and Mai rest first before heading out; Mai gives Trunks food but unfortunately it is dog food since she wasn’t able to procure proper food due to the collapse of society. After sharing the dog food with Mai, Future Trunks states that they will go back 17 years into the past in order to get help from the Dragon Team.

In the present timeline, on Earth at Capsule Corporation, the Dragon Team are having a feast. Jaco complains to Bulma about the usage of time travel and that it is forbidden to manipulate time. Trunks' teacher educates Trunks and the Pilaf Gang about parallel worlds. After sparring, Gokū and Vegeta join the feast and eat with Beerus and Whis. Whis tells Gokū and Vegeta more about Zen'ō and that although he does not fight, being indeed the strongest and confirms it by telling the Saiyan duo that there were once 18 universes in total, but six universes were destroyed in an instant when his mood was spoiled.

In the alternate future, Future Trunks and Mai reach Capsule Corporation and prepare to go inside the dilapidated building to find the Time Machine. Suddenly, Black appears. Future Trunks and Mai fight Black, only for it to overpower the duo with Mai getting critically injured and as a result, dies. Black reveals itself; he is a man wearing black and grey Kaiōshin-like clothing but his most distinctive feature is his identical appearance to that of Gokū with a green Potara pierced in his left ear. Black is glad that this day will be Future Trunks' last day and smiles wickedly.
