"Hercule, Champion of the World" (セルゲームのお荷物！？ Seru Geimu no Onimotsu!?, lit. "The Cell Game's Dead Weight?!") is three hundred ninety-sixth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
Cell tells someone to hurry up and get in the ring, and Mr. Satan insists he is going first, and nobody else will need to fight Cell. Goku warns Satan he will be killed, and he should stop, but Satan ignores him, while the announcer tells the cameraman to go over to the idiot over there. The reporter tells everybody on Earth what this person just said to the world champion Mister Satan, and people watching around the world think Goku is an idiot. At King Castle, King Furry is watching. The King thinks that man looks just like the boy who had saved the world from King Piccolo, but his hair and eye color are different, so it must not be him. However, someone else among them looks just like him, Piccolo.
Krillin tells Goku not to worry, since they can just return Satan to life with the Dragon Balls, and Goku realizes it is no use trying to warn him. Goku waves at them that it is okay, and the announcer figures he realizes how great Satan is after all. Satan takes off his cape, then his Champion Belt, and stares down Cell for a bit. Then, he pulls out a capsule, pops it open, and out from it comes a big bag. He opens the bag, pulls out a fifteen tiles, and he stacks all of them. Satan concentrates, and then chops through fourteen of them with his bare hand. Goku and everyone are silent, while Cell thinks he is a complete idiot. Satan tells him to look at those busted tiles, that will be him in one minute. Satan thinks this will be great for his popularity, with this even being recorded on video. Satan takes his stance, while the announcer goes on about the Cell Games starting, which will decide the fate of the world. Satan charges at Cell, and hits him in the face with his Dynamite Kick. He lets off a flurry of punches at Cell, until Cell finally swats him aside. Krillin whispers to Gohan that he was actually kind of rooting for Cell on this one. Satan crashes into a nearby mountain, but somehow he is still alive. Krillin looks disappointed. The world is shocked that Satan got a ring out, and Cell says they will hurry and start the Cell Games now, and Goku steps up. Satan says he is just taking a break, next time he will get serious. Vegeta can not believe Mr. Satan still does not realize how much greater Cell is than him.
