Dragon Ball Wiki

"Message of Terror" (せんりつのメッセージ Senritsu no Messēji, lit. "Message of Terror") is the one hundred ninety fifth chapter of Dragon Ball Z and the three hundred eighty-ninth overall chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


The cover depicts the opening scene of the chapter, with Cell arriving at the perfect spot for the Cell Games.


Cell has arrived at the perfect spot for the Cell Games Tournament. He proceeds to clear out a chunk of ground, making it slightly larger than the ring for the World Martial Arts Tournament. He then proceeds to slice up a rock into smooth stone, which he then uses to build the floor of the ring. With the ring set up, and deciding to add decorations later, Cell heads off for the ZTV station to make his announcement.

At Kame House, Yamcha and Krillin are near the TV, which is currently showing a weather report. However, screams from the TV get their attention, and they see that Cell has arrived at the TV Station. Cell proceeds to tell the world about the upcoming Cell Games tournament, and challenges all of the world's greatest fighters to compete against him. If they lose, he will kill every single human on Earth before completely destroying the planet. To show that he's not bluffing, Cell proceeds to blow a massive hole in the wall of the ZTV Station, then flies out.

Master Roshi, Krillin and Yamcha wonder just who could stand a chance against Cell. Vegeta, however, announces that he's going to train in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber again, at which Future Trunks announces he's going too. Bulma wants to give Trunks a haircut first, so that his long hair doesn't get in his eyes.

Cell's broadcast has filled the world with fear, the civilians having no faith in the army or their champions. However, they had forgotten about a little boy, who, long ago, had slain the tyrannical King Piccolo and, more recently, turned aside the threat of the invading Saiyans, as well as the galactic emperor Frieza. The world had forgotten Goku, who, at that very moment, was training hard with his son.






  • In the Kanzenban edition, Cell's dialogue announcing the Cell Games has been altered so that the tournament will take place on May 26 like in Daizenshuu 7, rather than on May 17.
