Perfect cell

Cell Perfect

Well, don't get the wrong idea. I don't care one bit about this planet or its filthy people. But without it, there'd be no one to KILL!
~ Cell to Goku

Intelligence: Cell is quite intelligent, possessing, despite his young age, considerable combat skill, experience, and knowledge gained through the DNA of the warriors he was created from, allowing him to see through the weaknesses of Trunks' new transformation. He possesses knowledge on the Z-Fighters and their abilities and was able to skillfully manipulate his opponents to his own benefit.

Weaknesses: Cell is very overconfident. If he is considerably outmatched by an opponent, he will freak out and begin fighting irrationally. His Shunkan Ido requires a Ki signature to be of proper use, and he claims he will die if a small part of his brain is destroyed. However, he managed to regenerate even after the top half of his body was blown off.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Knows all of the techniques of the Z-fighters, plus Frieza and King Cold.
  • Absorption: Using his tail, he stabs the victim with it and will begin absorbing their power. Android 17 and 18, however, were absorbed by him opening his tail and sucking them in with it.
  • Big Bang Crash: An attack that's basically Cell's version of Vegeta's Big Bang attack. Used this when he tried to bring out Android 18 and 16.
  • Super Kamehameha: His ultimate attack as Super Perfect Cell, a super-charged Kamehameha wave.
  • Destructo Disc/Kienzan: A sharp disc which can cut through almost anything.
