But what could be that obstacle that Gohan needs to surpass? One clear message that this preview is sending is that there is more to Goku's son than anyone could ever imagine. He has the potential to surpass his limits and even surpass his father. The obstacle could be the fighter himself.

It is a general knowledge that the reason why he has not realized his Mystic form is that he was not able to discover his inner power. The change that is described in the preview is mostly due to Piccolo and his in-depth knowledge of his student and his concealed power. The Namekian is one of the few characters in "Dragon Ball Super" that look past the usual Saiyan that everyone else sees. He is also the one who had seen how powerful Gohan could become when he is under so much rage.

In the Universe Survival Arc of "Dragon Ball Super," it is possible that the spotlight will be focused on the son of the team leader of Universe 7. However, on the issue of surpassing his father, I bet with Goku's personality, breaking his limits and leveling up is just one of the exercises that he would like achieve more than anyone else in the series.
