From what I understand once the Majin Buu arc ended Uub became a pupil of Goku and was to become Z-fighter. But in Super so far I haven't seen any mention of him at all.

Does he not exist in Super yet? Or have I missed something crucial?

    I believe the reason is that Super takes place before the final scene of Dragon Ball Z, where Uub shows up, but I'll let an actual Dragon Ball expert confirm it.

The final tournament takes place AFTER the events of Dragon Ball Super. DB Super picks up immediately after the defeat of Majin Buu (Kid form).

Thus characters such as Uub, Pan and Bulla are yet to be shown in DB Super.

Dragon Ball Timeline: All Events This might be an interesting read.

Relevant part:

The events of the Future Trunks Saga take place.

Age 784, May 7 : The 28th World Martial Arts Tournament takes place. Goku leaves with Uub to train him

  • Thanks for the reference so interestingly enough there is a rough 10 year span for super to remain in continuity.

    @KazRodgers Of course, given how many episodes it took Namek to blow up, ten years could easily take us 10,000 episodes to get through.

  • Gohan sure grows up quickly. He was not even a year into highschool when buu showed up, but a year or two later, hes married, about to have a child, and a scholar who possibly has a College degree.

  • @Ryan 4 years according to the timeline. Enough time for the high school sweethearts to marry and kids.

Does he not exist in Super yet?

He does. But he's younger than at the end of Dragon Ball Z. In Dragon Ball Super, Dende mentions to Goku that there is a kid in a small village with a great potential that he should train, and that the boy is a reincarnation of the evil Majin Buu.



dragon ball super did not start at the Uub part they just started right after they beat kid buu so its like they just cut off the Uub part and that never happend because after battle of the gods they got the idea of revival of f then got the idea of dragon ball super because at first they were gonna make a season about goku training Uub to fight him
