Cell broadcasts his announcement of the Cell Games

When Krillin and Vegeta arrive, Future Trunks informs everyone of the Martial Arts Tournament being held by Cell. Android 16 asks to be taken back to Capsule Corporation, where he can be fixed. Bulma also notifies everyone at Kame House to go there too to meet up. After Cell finishes making his tournament he then heads off to a news station to broadcast his message via television announcing details about his tournament the Cell Games and if that all the warriors lose to him, he will kill every single last human being. Meanwhile, Goku and Gohan are still training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.


  • Master Roshi says that the 22nd World Martial Arts Tournament took place 5 years after the 21st, though it actually took place 3 years after. He also says that Goku was a "blushing newlywed" at the 23rd Tournament, though he and Chi-Chi did not marry until after the tournament was over.
  • In the Funimation dub, after Trunks vows to go back into the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, Vegeta says "Neither you nor Cell will be needed actually." He should have said "Neither you nor Kakarot will be needed actually." It's possible the lip flaps prevented Christopher Sabat from saying a more accurate line.
