Trunks is one of the more complex Saiyans in Dragon Ball, caring about protecting others and the safety of the future more than just a good battle. He rarely lets arrogance get the better of him and ends a fight as soon as possible instead of dragging it out for fun.

It’s that compassion that opens him up for more possibilities than most Saiyans, who always fall for fiery personalities. There’s only one prerequisite Trunks would have, and it’s that the woman can take care of herself, much like Future Mai does.
10 Botan Never Hesitates To Act When Protecting Others (7 Seeds)
Botan would instantly catch Trunks’s eye. She isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty as a policewoman, always plunging into danger if it means helping others.
While Botan’s lack of fear would draw Trunks in, it’s her willingness to help others that would seal the deal. She has one of the first awesome moments in 7 Seeds when she tackles a crocodile to keep her team safe. Botan is the type of woman Trunks would be happy to take home and introduce to Vegeta.
9 Najenda Would Help Trunks Keep A Level Head & Keep The World Safe (Akame Ga Kill)
The entire world of Akame Ga Kill is filled with strong female characters who are willing to rush into battle, but none of them have the same morals as Najenda.
Najenda would willingly take on any odds if it meant taking down a person or organization she felt was unjust. It’d be easy to see her and Trunks facing down threats like Zamasu together. Trunks would find Najenda’s tomboyish style appealing as well, if Future Mai is anything to go by.
8 Mikasa Would Share Trunks’ Deep Care For His Friends (Attack On Titan)
If there was ever a character who would fit in with Saiyans or Dragon Ball lore as a whole, it’s Mikasa from Attack on Titan. She has a take-no-prisoners personality that intimidates opponents as much as it does allies. She wouldn’t hesitate to rush into battle with the rest of the Z Fighters.

What would make Mikasa extra appealing to Trunks is the fact that she has a soft side, just as he does. She’s immensely loyal and protective of those close to her. Couple that with her strong sense of right and wrong, and Mikasa and Trunks would be perfect together.
7 Yoruichi Would Help Trunks Out In Battle As Much As She’d Tease Him At Home (Bleach)
Yoruichi is one of the strongest female characters in an anime filled with them. She’s defeated several foes in Bleach with nothing more than hand-to-hand combat. Her powers would let her keep up with the Z Fighters and Trunks, at least before Super Saiyan rage came into play.
Yoruichi’s personality would be perfect for Trunks, who is a bit shy about his feelings towards others. It would be easy to see her endlessly tease Trunks as she did a few characters in Bleach.
6 Kukaku Shiba Is More Akin To The Types Of Women Saiyans Like (Bleach)
While more of a minor character in Bleach, Kukaku Shiba represents many of the ideals that Saiyans have in a woman. She’s loud and not afraid to use physical violence to get her point across.
Both Chi-Chi and Bulma have resorted to these methods with their partners in the past, and Kukaku would care just as little that Trunks is stronger than her. Her fiery temper mixed with the care she has for her family make her naturally compatible with Trunks.
5 Rosette Christopher Is The Perfect Mix Of Plucky & Hot-Blooded (Chrono Crusade)
Chrono Crusade’s Rosette Christopher may be a bit more militant than Trunks is used to, but she has the energetic nature and hot-bloodedness that Trunks would be interested in.

Rosette’s rebellious streak would align well with Trunks, and her energy would be infectious, helping bring out a different side of him. She’s passionate enough to join him in combat and always determined to get stronger, no matter what it takes to do so.
4 Kallen Has The Same Hidden Sensitivity & Compassion That Future Trunks Does (Code Geass)
Kallen is one of the most complex characters in Code Geass, receiving some of the most character development in the anime. Her personality shifts a few times depending on the situation, but the one thing that always remains is the compassion and sensitivity that she often hides from others. Trunks could relate to that as he often tried to play up his Saiyan heritage when his personality differed greatly from Goku and Vegeta.
3 Lenalee Is The Sort Of Wholesome & Sweet Girl Trunks Needs In His Life (D.Gray-man)
Lenalee is one of the sweetest and most caring characters in D.Gray-man. She’s very polite to those around her and easily makes friends with everyone she encounters. She’s the type of person that someone who’s been through what Future Trunks has needs to settle down with.
Not only is Lenalee kindhearted, but she’s gone through an awful past as well, giving the two of them further common ground. She and Trunks would be there to support one another through their history.
2 Trunks Would Help Yoshino Overcome Her Inferiority Complex (Digimon Data Squad)
With how caring Trunks is, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him fall for someone who he felt he could help. That would be the case with Yoshino from Digimon Data Squad. Yoshino suffers greatly from self-doubt and feelings of inferiority, never seeing herself as good enough. Trunks would help show her that she has nothing to be afraid of and would never be considered useless. In return, Trunks would have a partner who is fiercely loyal to him.
1 Mirajane Has A Warmth That Future Trunks Needs After So Much Hardship (Fairy Tail)
Mirajane has a warmth and energy about her that makes her stand out, even among the plethora of female characters in Fairy Tail. She treats everyone she meets with kindness and an eternal smile. It’s this personality that’s perfect for Trunks – something he needs after everything he’s been through in life. He wouldn’t need to worry about Mirajane being a damsel in distress either, as she can more than take care of herself.
