I believe you made one mistake before going into your assumption on DBO.When Trunks travelled back in time, he didn't travel to a different timeline, because there wasn't a different one, there was only one which would have ended up with Goku getting his heart condition and trunks having to travel in time. Once and only once Trunks travelled back, he created a different timeline by changing the course of events. For example, killing frieza while Goku was gonna do it.So going back to your assumption, you initially don't travel back to a different timeline, you go to the same one, when something changes because of your arrival, then a new timeline gets "created".
well ok then why isn't a new timeline getting created every time we time travel back?
How do you know it's not getting created?
a new timeline has to be created, thats basically the law of timelines in DB, when you time travel back you go into a newly created paralell univese....ughhhhh...Time travel is so confusing!
Yeah and you said in DBO a new timeline is not getting created when we travel back in time, how do you know that?
I think it's mentioned in the backstory.After all, if that were the case, it wouldn't really matter sending everyone back in time to prevent Miira from messing with history, since that timeline would still be all messed up.Perhaps it has something to do with the Kaioshin of Time working with the Time Patrol?...Either way, Doc Brown will not be pleased.
Well, you kinda fix that timeline like Trunks did in DBZ. It wouldn't really be messed up, there would just be some differences I guess, at least that's how I see it.
But don't try to apply real complicated physics to manga, anime and games. Don't even try to go in with time travel, which we can't even explain it IRL.
Na, you are right Nia. The story says it clearly, there is a timeline and you must help trunks to fight Towa and Miira so that they don't change that timeline.It's a game afterall, it won't go through a lot of physics laws or anything.So, really there is only 1 timeline, you are not changing anything because that timeline exists as a result of your travels (TMQ/TLQ) which each of them always end the same way.So yep, problem "solved".
