Something that he demonstrated during the events of the movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

It’s funny how, although it doesn’t have any active series right now, the Dragon Ball franchise is still very much alive thanks to the manga. We are not only talking about an IP that is recognized for having provided some of the best anime in history, and that is part of popular culture today, which means that, although it is not particularly current, it continues having a legion of fans pending any type of content you can provide, being in this case the Dragon Ball Super manga. If we had to say exactly why it’s such a popular franchise, we’d probably say it’s because of its characters, and especially its villains.
If we look, for example, at Piccolo, we are talking about an extremely particular case, and that is that he was the final villain of the original series, to later become an ally, in addition to one of the favorite characters of the franchise, but later lose relevance in favor of other characters like Vegeta. Many people did not end up happy with this, but luckily we can say that this character had his redemption in the movie Dragon Ball: Super Super Hero, which is now being adapted by the Dragon Ball Super manga.
Piccolo is close to gaining much more popularity in the manga.
As explained from Game Rant, Piccolo had a great importance in this mentioned film, and therefore he is having it in the current arc of the manga.. Mainly, we can see this in the fact that she has received a “power up”, that is, that she has ended up having a transformation, something that has not happened since she merged with God at the beginning of the android arc. .
Also, this does not end here, and it is that during the film, something we will see soon in the mangashowed us that this transformation was not just appearance, handily defeating some of the most formidable rivals in this film.
We can only say that we hope that in the next arcs of the manga, when they finish adapting this movie, we can see Piccolo taking a bigger role, thus drastically changing the narrative of the franchise in several aspects. Even so, and unfortunately, this may not happen, because with the latest chapters of the manga we can understand that the protagonists will soon be Trunks and Goten, a duo of characters that was even more forgotten than Piccolo during Dragon Ball Super.
