However, Uub is someone who Dragon Ball repeatedly sets up for future success instead of immediate development. Many possibilities lie ahead for Dragon Ball Super after the release of its latest movie and its new manga arc on the way, which means that it might finally be Uub’s time to shine.
The limited context in which Uub appears at the end of Dragon Ball Z sets up a substantial training arc as Goku prepares to turn Uub into Earth’s greatest protector. Dragon Ball Super could replicate this original plot point with Goku taking Uub under his wing, possibly even with Vegeta’s help as Saiyan support.
However, there are even more interesting possibilities for Uub's character if he were to seriously study under King Kai, Beerus, or any of the series’ other martial arts masters. Uub could even find himself making an unexpected pit stop over to Planet Yardrat and getting the opportunity to master their many unique techniques.
