"Like Piccolo I can fully regenerate as long as my core remains. Like the Saiyans my power increases greatly after I heal from near death, and like Frieza I can survive anywhere."
— Super Perfect Cell in "The Horror Won't End"

Cell's genetic makeup

Cell's primary genetic makeup: Goku, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Frieza

In his Imperfect Form, Cell has the power of his genetic materials at the time their DNA had been collected.[1] In the Funimation dub, it is also stated that he has cells from Nappa, Krillin and Gohan. Before traveling back to the past, Cell was easily able to kill the Future Trunks (base form) of his timeline. However, even after absorbing fifteen thousand humans, he was no match for Piccolo (who had newly fused with Kami) despite Piccolo wearing weighted clothing (Piccolo with weighted clothing was stated to be equal to Android 17 by Android 16). According to Piccolo, Imperfect Cell at this point was stronger than Android 18 and by extension Super Saiyan Vegeta. Krillin also noted that Imperfect Cell was stronger than Frieza, wondering if this fact scared Goku, to which Goku stated both that it did and that he was excited by Imperfect Cell's power.

After absorbing at least six hundred thousand humans, coupled with energy previously absorbed from Piccolo, he was able to outclass both Android 17 and Piccolo, even withstanding the latter's most powerful attack without any visible damage. According to Android 16, Imperfect Cell's power was equal to his own, which is confirmed when both were able to fight evenly.

In his Semi-Perfect form, his power increased to the point that he far surpassed Android 16 and easily tossed him aside. In addition, he was also able to withstand repeated Neo Tri-Beams from Tien Shinhan. However, he was severely outclassed by Vegeta in his 2nd Grade Super Saiyan form. He shows that he possesses some power reserves when he powers up against Vegeta, but he is still inferior to his opponent even at full power. In the anime, he was also beaten by 2nd Grade Super Saiyan Future Trunks during their brief battle (with both Vegeta and Future Trunks claiming that they were equal in terms of overall power in said forms).

Perfect Cell becomes far stronger still, with Moori in the anime speculating that he was powerful enough to threaten the entire universe. Despite being heavily damaged by Super Vegeta's Final Flash, he was easily able to regenerate the damage, and against Super Trunks, despite stating the hybrid had him outmatched in power, would later reveal how much he had been holding back against both warriors during the Cell Games.


Cell in his Super Saiyan form

During his training before the Cell Games, Goku was able to discern he was not a true match for Cell, even with his newfound Super Saiyan enhancement, and chose to place his faith in Gohan's hidden abilities to defeat Cell in his place. This proved true when Goku and Cell fought, the latter continuing to suppress his power to a level just above that of Goku's, but still leaving the spectating Dragon Team utterly dumbfounded by their vicious clash. Additionally, in the anime, Cell's Multi-Form copies retained much more of the original's full power, rather than possessing only one fourth each. Despite holding a heavy advantage over Goku by continuing to hide his true strength, he suggested Goku might be able to turn the tables on him if he were to take a Senzu bean, though it was likely an excuse for Cell to assert even more of an advantage. Against Super Saiyan Full Power Gohan, Cell initially could not hit him, but after releasing more of his power, his increased speed allowed him to overwhelm the reluctant fighter. In his suppressed state, Cell was noticeably worried that Android 16's self-destruct device could wipe him out, and struggled to break free before realizing Android 16's mistake.

Perfect Cell reveals the full extent of his power upon Gohan's awakening into Super Saiyan 2 (indicated in the manga by his white aura turning golden), easily becoming the second-strongest warrior present by a large margin - though he is completely helpless against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, who easily stonewalls Cell's techniques and deals catastrophic damage to the android with only two punches. After bulking up in rage, Power Weighted Perfect Cell's strength further exceeds the other warriors but still pales in comparison to Gohan's own, and the speed loss worsens Cell's already-low chances of even hitting Gohan.

Upon returning from the brink of self-destruction, Perfect Cell awakens his own Super Saiyan 2 form - "Super Perfect Cell" - and becomes comparable to Gohan's own Super Saiyan 2,[2] confident for a final battle with the youth. Super Perfect Cell was easily able to overcome the enraged Super Saiyan Vegeta with a single slap, and could have killed him instantly had Gohan not shielded Vegeta from the follow-up ki attack, which Cell later implied he did not need his full power for. During the final Kamehameha clash, Super Perfect Cell was able to consistently pressure the injured Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (despite interference from the Dragon Team), and claimed his Kamehameha could wipe out the entire solar system with its power. Despite his advantage, Cell was noticeably affected by Vegeta's Galick Blazer, which gave Gohan enough time to reawaken his hidden power and completely decimate the Solar Kamehameha, obliterating Super Perfect Cell completely.

In the Super 17 Saga of Dragon Ball GT, Cell and Frieza are stated to have powered up after training in Hell for many years and confidently challenge Goku even after having witnessed him fight an opponent such as Kid Buu. Upon briefly absorbing Goku and achieving his "Overloaded" form, Cell's power briefly reaches even greater heights, though he loses it when Goku escapes him.

Super Dragon Ball Heroes

Returning as a Ghost Warrior, Perfect Cell and base Bojack together are able get the edge over final form Cooler. They are easily outmatched by him once he becomes Golden Cooler, but are able to keep fighting thanks to their regeneration and manage to do a small amount of damage to Cooler by the end of the battle.

Cell returns stronger than before during the New Space-Time War Saga, however he does not fight again until the Supreme Kai of Time Saga (in the manga) where he has become even further empowered with the Transcended state, in this state he is able to overpower Super Saiyan God Xeno Trunks, but is quickly defeated when Xeno Trunks is aided by the Future Warrior in Black in his Super Saiyan form.

Statements by authors and guidebooks

According to the manga title page, a number of other lifeforms cells are composed inside of Cell.

According to the French version of The Legendary Manga, Semi-Perfect Cell's power is 10x greater than Imperfect Cell's.[3]

The fifth Dragon Box' booklet asserts that Cell's power grew to surpass Son Gohan as a Super Saiyan 2 after his recovery.

The Daizenshuu 2 states that Super Perfect Cell wielded the strongest power in existence upon his return to Earth.

Video games

Cell-X is one of the most powerful bosses in Dragon Ball Online, stronger even than the likes of Gamelan and Week, though weaker than the Space Cats and the Kili Enhanced Great Ape. He is able to fight the Youth, even in their race's transformation (Super Saiyan/Great Namekian/Pure Majin).

In Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai, Super Perfect Cell gains a huge boost in power after being brought back from death (enough to defeat Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks, when the latter does not fight seriously), but not as strong as Super Saiyan 2 Teen Gohan after being consumed by rage or Gotenks when the latter fights seriously.

When he appears at the Timespace Tournament in Dragon Ball Fusions, Cell has become strong enough that his Kamehameha is able to match that of Super Saiyan Goku's (who at this point was much stronger than he was at the Cell Games).

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, due to being empowered by Towa's Dark Magic, Imperfect Cell's power after absorbing at least six hundred thousand humans was increased beyond to what it had been historically, making his power greater than Android 16's and in the unfixed altered timeline allowed Imperfect Cell to overpower both Android 17 and 18 allowing him to absorb both Androids at the same time, causing him to transform directly into his Perfect Form, skipping his Semi-Perfect form entirely. However, in the fixed timeline, Android 16 and the 2nd Future Warrior manage to overpower Dark Imperfect Cell, forcing him to absorb Android 17 restoring the proper timeline. It is implied that Towa increased Future Imperfect Cell's power in much the same way in both Xenoverse & Xenoverse 2 allowing him to absorb both Future Android 17 and Future Android 18 to obtain his Perfect form before Future Trunks returned from the past in Age 785. As part of the Extra Pack 2 DLC, Android 17 (DB Super) has special dialogue with Imperfect Cell who 17 says is little more of an insect to him now due to his increase in power far surpassing Cell's Imperfect form. In New Parallel Quest 119: "A Ranger's Duty", Android 17 is willing to confront Perfect Cell with the aid of the Time Patrol when they encounter him and the Cell Juniors while assisting 17 with his Park Ranger duties. 17 himself states he has no intention of becoming part of him and is confident he can take Perfect Cell implying he is strong enough to defeat Cell with some assistance from his Time Patrol allies.

Cell's power level in his Perfect Form is listed as 900,000,000 in Dragon Ball Z: Scouter Battle Taikan Kamehameha - Ora to Omee to Scouter. In a special mission in the game, it increases even higher to 1,079,956,055.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, it is revealed that Cell has trained in Hell since his demise, and is far stronger than he was at the Cell Games though it is implied he did it through image training as it is suggested that he suffered the same punishment Frieza was subjected to which apparently traumatized Cell to the point he refuses to speak about it. He believes that he could defeat Super Saiyan Goku and believed himself to be stronger than Gohan, who still hasn't reawakened his true powers yet even noting he was disappointed at how Gohan had let himself go since their battle during the Cell Games. Though, he is noted by Android 21 to be far weaker than final form Frieza and wasn't a challenge for Android 21 on his own. In the Android 21 Arc, Android 16 notes that Android 21 is far stronger than Cell, apparently even in her base form. Cell proved able to bend the artificial soul he had been linked with allowing him to utilize his full power in the Android 21 Arc forcing the good persona to transform into her true form to protect her fellow Androids who were in a weakened state due the power suppressing waves preventing them from accessing their full power and had to rely on the soul link just to fight.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, it is shown that Super Perfect Cell surpasses Gohan in power, as he is able to fight him head-on in close quarters and overwhelm him while maintaining his nonchalant demeanor.



Imperfect Cell absorbing Piccolo's energy

Cell has two methods of absorption: the first method is to stab his target with the sharp end of his tail. The tail will then extract all of the organic matter of the victim, leaving the clothing behind. The process appears quite agonizing for the victim. According to Cell, this is how he feeds and states that the more he eats, the hungrier and stronger he becomes. The second method is to open up the pointed end of his stinger, and it will become a giant sucker. Then he will bring the sucker down on one of the androids, and the sucker will swallow them through the tail into his body. This is a horrifying experience for both 17 and 18, as they can be heard screaming in muffled voices, begging for Cell to let them out. But unlike his other victims the androids do not die, but forcibly merge with Cell on a cellular level after being swallowed into his body and become one with him. 17 and 18 will continue to be conscious while merged with Cell and even see through his eyes as they are literally a part of him. The purpose of this method is to help Cell achieve his complete form as 17 and 18 possess bio-organic components within their cells that were meant to integrate with Cell's body and complete his evolution.

Special Beam Cannon

Imperfect Cell firing the Special Beam Cannon at Piccolo

Due to possessing Piccolo's cells, Cell is able to use the Special Beam Cannon and demonstrates his usage of it against Piccolo.

Super Perfect Cell Kamehameha

Super Perfect Cell prepares his Solar Kamehameha

Due to possessing Goku's cells, Cell is able to use the Kamehamha and demonstrates his usage of it against Piccolo. Like Goku, Cell has also continued to improve on it and develop new variations of it.

DBZKai Ep 75 - Regeneration

Imperfect Cell regenerates his tail

Due to possessing the cells of Piccolo, the Saiyans, and Frieza, Cell's regeneration is extremely potent as it allows him to survive, regenerate, and grow stronger so as long as at least one of his cells survives. In the manga, Cell claims he can regenerate as long as the core in his head survive, however, in Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot it is revealed he was lying. It is also implied that similar to the Namekians, Cell's regeneration also results in a severe temporary drop in ki due to the stress of regenerating, although to a significantly lesser scale, as evidenced when, shortly after Cell regenerated from having most of his body being blown apart by Goku's Instant Kamehameha, Goku comments on Cell's ki decreasing in response to Cell's statement that Goku's ki had dropped from using the Instant Kamehameha.

Big Bang Attack
DBZKai Ep 75 - Big Bang Attack

Semi-Perfect Cell prepares his Big Bang Attack

Due to possessing Vegeta's cells, Cell is able to use Big Bang Attack and first fires it at Android 16's head, damaging him. Cell has also developed variations powerful enough to destroy islands.

Death Beam
Android Explosion - Cell Death Beam

Perfect Cell firing a Barrage Death Beam at Gohan

Due to possessing Frieza's cells, Cell is able to use Death Beam and fires a barrage of them at Gohan during their battle. Upon returning to Earth, Cell fires one at full power to kill Future Trunks.

Cell about to blow up

Semi-Perfect Cell preparing to explode and destroy Earth

A Self Destruction technique in which Cell pumps himself up like a balloon and explodes after one minute. The resultant explosion is capable of destroying an entire planet. If Cell is attacked in any way before the countdown reaches zero, he will explode immediately. Once activated, according to Cell, he cannot reverse the technique. Cell's most notable usage of this is when he blew up on King Kai's Planet, killing everyone on it after Goku sacrifices himself to protect Earth.

Baby cell

Larva Cell floating in his incubator

The Larva[4] is Cell's evolutionary stage. Cell's basic design was thought up by Dr. Gero as the ultimate artificial human while Gero was in a good mood due to successfully completing Android 19.[5] Cell's original, larval form floats in Dr. Gero's secret basement laboratory. Cell can transform from his Imperfect form back into his Larva form at will but then needs years to evolve back again.

In Cell's alternate timeline, Cell grows to full-size, cracks out of the machine, turns from Larva form into his Imperfect form, kills Future Trunks in order to steal his Time Machine, reverts back to his Larva form, and travels back to the present timeline in order to absorb Android 17 and Android 18.

Cell (Larva) The Breakers

Cell in his Larva form

He burrows deep into the ground where he remains for four years, during which time he undergoes a slow, natural evolutionary process as he prepares to change into his imperfect form. Once ready, Cell emerges from the ground to shed his skin. This form's effectiveness in combat is never shown, but it was at the very least able to produce an energy blast strong enough to melt through the canopy of the time machine.

Imperfect Form
Imperfect Cell DBZ Episode 142

Imperfect Cell's first appearance in Dragon Ball Z

Imperfect Cell (不完全体セル Fukanzentai Seru) or 1st form Cell (第ー形態セル Dai Ichi Keitai Seru) is Cell's mature form prior to his absorption of Android 17 and Android 18. The state is alternatively called First Form.

In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Perfect Cell is shown to be capable of creating an copy of his Imperfect form when he creates one to assist in the Future Warrior's training under him with Perfect Cell himself referring to it as his Imperfect offspring, they inherit Imperfect Cell's personality and desire to absorb others though are obedient to Perfect Cell.[6]

Semi-Perfect Form
Semi Perfect Cell DBZ Episode 154

Semi-Perfect Cell

Semi-Perfect Cell, Second Form (第2形態 Dai Ni Keitai), or 2nd Form Cell (第2形態セル Dai Ni Keitai Seru), is a form Cell achieved after absorbing Android 17, but before getting to Android 18 (though several video games show that Cell would still take this exact form no matter the order).[7][8]

This form is called #17 Absorption in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 and "Nonperfect" form in Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku II. In World Mission, it is called Cell (Android 17 Absorbed).

Perfect Form
Cell Dragon Ball Z Episode 161

Perfect Cell

Perfect Cell (完全体セル Kanzentai Seru), also called Cell: Perfect form,[9] is the ultimate form of Cell, which he assumed after absorbing both Androids 17 and 18.

In Xenoverse series, this form is called Cell (Perfect) and in Xenoverse 2 it is revealed that absorbing both 17 and 18 together allows Imperfect Cell to transform directly into his Perfect form bypassing his Semi-Perfect form entirely.

Super Saiyan
Super Saiyan Standoff

Cell's Super Saiyan aura in display against Goku's

When Cell powers up to his maximum, he transforms into a Super Saiyan via his Saiyan cells. However, due to lack of hair, the only visible change is that he gains the Super Saiyan aura around himself. Imperfect Cell seemingly does not achieve his Super Saiyan state until after absorbing many humans, as he did not power up with a yellow aura until then.

In his Perfect Form, Cell uses the Super Saiyan form while powered up and fighting, resulting in him gaining the form's golden aura,[10] and he rarely (if ever) displays his base power.

Super Saiyan Third Grade
Super Cell

Perfect Cell in his Super Saiyan Third Grade form to taunt Future Trunks

The bulky Powerhouse form is the result Perfect Cell taking on the Super Saiyan Third Grade form.[10] Cell never actually fights in this form, and simply uses it to taunt Future Trunks - who thought that his Super Saiyan Third Grade form would be enough to beat Perfect Cell.

Cell takes this form for his Meteor Attack in Dragon Ball Z: Hyper Dimension.


Perfect Cell takes his Power-Weighted form when he loses his temper against Gohan

The second time Perfect Cell takes on his Power Weighted form, he becomes much larger than before, presumably thanks to the presence of Piccolo's Namekian cells in his body.

Cell is fully playable in this form in Dragon Ball Z: Dragon Battlers, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai, Dragon Ball Heroes, and Dragon Ball: Zenkai Battle. The form also makes an appearance in the final battle of Dragon Ball Z: Budokai where it is named Perfect Form (Power-Weighted), where Gohan must defeat Cell, despite the fact he should actually be in his Super Perfect form. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse, this form is referenced by the Z-Soul, A power-based transformation... which grants a large increase in attack and defense when Ki is at max, but movement speed is reduced, and no guard can be made. In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, it is named Cell (Perfect, Powerhouse).

Self-destruction form
Self destruction cell

Semi-Perfect Cell in his self-destruction form

Semi-Perfect Cell's Self-destruction form[11] is a transformation that Cell takes out of desperation in order to kill the Z Fighters along with the Earth. The explosion he releases when in this form is strong enough to reduce him to a single cell and obliterate King Kai's Planet along with everyone on it at the time.

Super Perfect Form

Super Perfect Cell

Super Perfect Cell (超完全体セル Chō Kanzentai Seru), also called Revived Cell[11] (復活セル Fukkatsu Seru) is a version of Cell's perfect form after he receives Saiyan Power from his recovery after a self-destruction that takes the lives of Goku, King Kai, Bubbles and Gregory.

Cell explains that as long as his mass that makes up his nucleus is not destroyed, his body can still regenerate. Despite Cell's loss of Android 18 (by extension 17 who was killed in the explosion), Cell's being imprinted on experience of his Perfect Form, allowing him to regenerate back into said form. At the same time, like natural Saiyans, the experiences greatly increased his power and efficiency in battle. While visibly looking the same, the increase in power is illustrated by Cell's aura now sparking with electricity, identical in nature to a Super Saiyan 2, and in the manga, he confirms that he is a Super Saiyan 2, stating that he has "powered up like Son Gohan".

In the Xenoverse series, this form is called Cell (Full Power). In Dokkan Battle, this state is referred to as Perfect Cell, since Cell's normal state is referred to as Cell (Perfect Form).

Perfect Cell empowered by Demigra

Transcended Perfect Cell

Cell gains the Transcended form after gaining power from Dark King Demigra.

Overloaded Form

Cell after absorbing Goku

In Dragon Ball GT, while Cell and Frieza are fighting Goku in Hell, Cell actually absorbs Goku for a brief while, gaining all of his power. His appearance actually does change, becoming much more muscular and being surrounded by electricity, before Goku crawls out of Cell from his tail. The form is named Cell, Overloaded on one card in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game.


"How could I be defeated by a weakling like Yamcha?!"
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai

Cell kuririn 2


Cellin (セルリン Serurin) is the product of Cell absorbing Krillin in a what-if scenario in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai. Cell has a nightmare during his wait for the Cell Games to start. In this nightmare, Cell succeeds in absorbing Android 17, but accidentally absorbs Krillin who pushes Android 18 out of the way before she could be absorbed, resulting in what would look like a fusion between a Cell Jr. and Krillin: Cellin. Cellin appears as Perfect Cell but has a diminutive body (around the size of a Cell Jr.), with Krillin's characteristics and his gi's orange color, even with the Turtle School symbol on his back and chest, Krillin's six marks on his head and even his spots as well as a clogged-up voice. With his power level taking a drastic drop, Cell is barely able to defeat Yamcha and is destroyed with one shot from Tien Shinhan's Tri-Beam. Cell then wakes up startled, seeing that he is still standing in his Cell Games Arena, during the middle of the night, normal. Relieved, Cell mutters "I guess ten days is just too long to wait for the tournament," referring to the Cell Games.

Villainous Mode
Dark Cell

Super Perfect Cell (Villainous Mode)

In the finale of Xenoverse Demigra's Mirage resurrects Super Perfect Cell and Demigra possesses him in order to have him alter history of Age 778 leading to him fight the Future Warrior alongside a possessed Frieza and Kid Buu. He and Frieza are perfectly aware that they are being actively manipulated by Demigra, but they would rather have their revenge first and foremost, instead of breaking free of his control. When fought in game Cell also has Villainous Mode skill, however when playable he lacks this additional skill. Cell also utilizes the first and second stage Villainous Mode power-ups during the altered Cell Games.

Heinous Perfect Cell

Cell•Supervillain in Xenoverse 2

In Xenoverse 2, Perfect Cell is transformed by the dark magic of the Time Breakers by shaving off life to grant him greater power. This gives him his second stage Supervillain transformation version of his Full Power Perfect form called Cell•Supervillain. In this form his skin becomes a whiter color, his eyes glow dark pink, and he gains the Time Breaker's broken infinity symbol on his forehead. Like Omega Shenron•Supervillain and Yamcha•Supervillain, this form is obtained outside the main story as Cell uses the weaker first stage Supervillain power-up during the main story in his Imperfect, Perfect, and Full Power forms. It is also implied that had he absorbed 17 while the Android was enchanted then his Semi-Perfect form would be far more powerful as a result of the Supervillain power-up, though fortunately the Future Warrior freed 17 of the enchantment before he was absorbed thus this scenario never occurred.

Majin Cell
Majin Cell full

Majin Cell

Cell appears in this form in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 and Dragon Ball Z 2 V. He appears the same as in his Perfect state except with an M on his forehead and black lining around his eyes like with Vegeta when under the trance. In the story mode of Budokai 2, he and Frieza are revived and turned into Majins by Babidi and are once again beaten by Goku and the other Z Fighters. When Majin Buu kills Babidi, Cell and Frieza turn back to their old selves and do not remember anything of being controlled by Babidi, though they still continue to obstruct the heroes all the way to the ending chapter. Once beaten for the last time, they are absorbed by Super Buu. They eventually return to Hell once Super Buu is defeated.

Cell X
Cell-X render

Cell X

After being resurrected by Towa, Cell was turned into Cell X (Cell-X), this version of Cell was giant and spider-like in appearance.

As more energy was collected for him, he continued to get more powerful but was defeated by the Time Patrol in Age 1000. In this form Cell no longer likes to fight directly, instead spawning smaller Bio-Androids to do his work for him.

Cell X (Dark Dragon Ball)

Cell can also transform into Xeno Cell (Dark Dragon Ball Merged) version of this form in the Dragon Ball Super Card Game.

In World Mission, Chapter 3, Sub Chapter 2: "Sealas Arrives!", Sealas creates an anomaly that allows Cell to undergo Dark Evolution to transform into Xeno Cell's version of Cell X which he uses while fighting alongside the Anomalous Golden Frieza. However, he reverts to Cell (Perfect) after being defeated along with Frieza by the Heroes, and both villains are absorbed by Sealas' servant Ahms.

Dark Dragon Ball Fighter

In the Extra Dimensional space for World Mission Chapter 3, Cell remains merged with Dark Dragon Ball of his Xeno counterpart.

As a result, his appearance is identical to Xeno Cell, as Cell's appearance when merged with the Dark Dragon Ball slightly alters, with his eyes becoming blank, and the Dark Dragon Ball appearing on his chest, with black lines coming out of it.

Powered Up Form
Cell (New GT Form)

Cell's Powered Up Form

Cell attains this form at some point during Dragon Ball GT as shown during the Dragon Ball GT (1997 live show). Frieza and Cell are looking for Goku, so Pan and Trunks trick them into thinking Goku is coming so they can flee. Cell and Frieza then begin searching for Goku once more.

Ultimate Ultra Fusion
Dark Maxi Fusion

The Ultimate Ultra Fusion

Golden Great Ape Maxi Fusion

The Ultimate Maxi Fusion's Golden Great Ape form

The strongest fused warrior, resulting from Frieza and Cell manipulating Pinich into using Five-Way Fusion with them and Pinich's two teammates: Wanta and Paprika. Frieza and Cell are the ones who retains control of the fusion and use it to kill Goku and destroy the planet, however their plans are thwarted by Whis who rewinds time, and then Beerus, who reflects his attack away. Ultimate Ultra Fusion then fights Tekka's team in both his Super Saiyan and Golden Great Ape forms but is defeated.



After the defeat of Ultimate Ultra Fusion, Frieza and Cell use EX-Fusion to fuse into Celluza as a last resort against Tekka and Pinich, however the two also use EX-Fusion and manage to defeat Celluza in the final battle. It is implied that Celluza is stronger than Golden Frieza, given that Frieza decided to perform EX-Fusion with Cell over fighting Tekka and Pinich in his Golden form.

Perfect 16

Perfect 16 is the EX-Fusion of Android 16 and Perfect Cell introduced in Dragon Ball Fusions.

Cell 17

Cell 17 is the EX-Fusion of Perfect Cell and Android 17. Interestingly, despite being a fusion of Cell and 17, Cell 17 overall resembles a fusion of Perfect Cell and Super 17 and is even referred to as the fusion of the Ultimate Android and Ultimate Machine Mutant in his character profile.


Vegecell is a hypothetical fusion of Semi-Perfect Cell and Vegeta. It is a "Fusion Frenzy" card in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game, however, the card itself does not depict the fused character, instead showing the two fusing characters beside each other.

  • Infinite Energy Generator - Having absorbed Androids 17 and 18, Cell gained an infinite energy generator.[12]
  • Senzu Bean - Mystical beans with immense rejuvenation properties. Cell was given one by Goku.
