    Early life and death of Goku


    Tien receiving a swift punch to the stomach by 18 (TV special prologue)

    Future Tien's Future life was exactly the same as his main timeline counterpart's life until the Trunks Saga. In August of Age 764, Tien watches as Future Goku uses the Instant Transmission to arrive on Earth and kills Future Frieza and Future King Cold (something Future Trunks' arrival in the main timeline alters). Two years later, in Age 766, Goku dies from a lethal Heart Virus, and is unable to be wished back due to the death being of natural cause. Tien is shown outside Goku's house when Goku dies.

    Battle against the Androids

    On the 12th of May, Age 767, two killer androids appear. Coming to the defense of Earth's inhabitants, Future Tien and the other Z Fighters engage the androids in battle. Future Tien is the fourth Z Fighter killed by the androids; he dies after Yamcha and before Krillin.


    Android 18 blows a hole through Tien, killing him (anime flashback)

    In the TV special prologue, Future Tien is shown in receiving a swift punch to the stomach by Future Android 18, and in Future Trunks' flashback in "Ghosts from Tomorrow", it is shown that 18 killed him by blasting a hole through his chest with her High-Pressure Energy Wave. The only survivor of the battle is Future Gohan, who dedicates his life to avenging his fallen friends.

    Future Tien was 34 years old when he died.
