Super Saiyan Rage is a unique transformation ability achieved by Trunks utilizing the "power of rage" (怒りの力, ikari no chikara). In this form, Trunks is referred to as Super Trunks (超トランクス, Sūpā Torankusu).
The transformation seems to combine several traits of other Super Saiyan forms all together. The hair of the user grows more and becomes much spikier, like a combination of Super Saiyan Third Grade and Super Saiyan 2. When first achieved, the user also loses their irises with their eyes becoming completely white, however when the user masters the power they gain lighter green irises. The users' muscle mass also briefly increases immensely before shrinking back to normal, giving a sharp power increase without losing speed.
Finally, the user's ki gains an dual aura: the outer being the golden aura of a normal Super Saiyan while the inner has a similar aura to that of Super Saiyan Blue—overall bearing a resemblance to the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan transformations. After absorbing the power made by the Earthlings, the user's aura turns completely blue like Super Saiyan Blue.
The power of the form is immense. It brought a fighter who was inferior in every respect to Gokū Black's Super Saiyan Rosé, to being comfortably superior to it. Even after repeated battles, Trunks was able to utilize this form to nearly defeat Gokū Black on two separate occasions, and even overwhelm the combined power of both Black and the Zamasu of the future. Also, using his power he was able to nearly seal Future Zamasu with the Demon Sealing Wave technique. Finally, after more training with the form as well as recovering from life threatening injuries since achieving it, Trunks was able to fight and ultimately defeat the merged Zamasu, something that only the fusion of Son Gokū and Vegeta, known as Vegetto in Super Saiyan Blue form was able to accomplish before.
The form isn't without its drawbacks. It drains a massive amount of stamina to use and nearly every time Trunks had used it previously he required a significant rest before he could utilize it again. Thus, Gokū Black and Zamasu were able to comfortably fight and overwhelm him when he was in his cool down period, and he could only use Super Saiyan 2, nearly killing him.

- An alternative (and equally correct) translation of ikari (怒り) is "anger," which thus makes an alternative name of this form "Super Saiyan Anger."

- This technique shares its game name with Super Saiyan 2, which was named 'Super Saiyan Rage' in Dragon Ball Z The Legacy of Goku II thirteen years prior.
- The technique bears the hallmarks of a Saiyan godly transformation, down to aura similarities and shrinking muscles. Unlike Super Saiyan God and Super Saiyan Blue, however, it has not been explicitly stated what Rage is.
