Hi.  This is my first FAQ for DBZ:BT, so I figured to write a Cell FAQ.  There
will be spoilers of the game and anime/manga series which the game is based on,
so be warned about this.  Now, let's start the FAQ.

4. Why a Cell FAQ?   [WACF]
----------------------------------------- 

Some people may be wondering, "Why a Cell FAQ?"  The answer would be that 
Cell is one of my favorite characters in the games and the anime.  I went on
GameFAQ's and saw that there were no Cell FAQ's made, so I decided to do this 
one.  Hopefully, it turns as good as I hope it will be.  


----------------------------
5. Cell 1st Form [C1F]
----------------------------

This is Cell when he is first seen in the anime and manga, not counting the 
egg shell that Gohan and Bulma found earlier.  In the anime/manga, he uses
his tail to absorb the life force of any living being.  He is composed of the 
cells of Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo, Tien, Krillen, and Yamcha, hence where he gets
the name Cell.  This is my second favorite Cell form, because of his move set.
This is the only form of Cell that is unlocked from the start.




5.1 Charcter Illustration and Stats  [C1FCIS]

This is the Character Illustration for Cell 1st Form.

"The ultimate Android, created by Doctor Gero.
Cell was created from the collected cells of Goku and the other
Z-Warriors, and incubated in Doctor Gero's secret underground laboratory.
Born into an alternate future where Androids 17 and 18 had already been
destroyed, Cell ambushes Trunks and steals his time capsule. He then
travels to the past in search of 17 and 18, in order to absorb them and
attain his perfect form.
Cell began his life as an insect-like creature with mottled green skin,
though he is designed to transform into increasingly powerful forms as he
absorbs the other androids.
In his first form, Cell was no match for Piccolo, who had recently merged
with Kami. But as Cell absorbed the energy from more and more humans, he
was able to power-up significantly. The next time he faced Piccolo, he
surprised the Namekian with his incredible strength.
Since he was created from the genetic material of Earth's most powerful
warriors, he is able to use a variety of their techniques, from Goku's
Kamehameha Wave to Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon. He can also absorb his
opponent's energy by stabbing them with his sharp tail.
Armed with the knowledge of Cell's plans after his experiences in the
past, Trunks returns to his future world and defeats Cell before he can
steal the time capsule."
____________________________________________________________

Now, these are Cell 1st Form's stats:

Health: 3 (43,200)
Ki: 2 (28,000)
Attack: 3
Defense: 2
Speed: 3
Favorite Techniques: 1
Finishing Move: 3
Super Finishing Move: 1

Overall, not bad.  The Favorite Techniques and Super Finishing Move stats kinda
suck though.


5.2 Move Set [C1FMS]


These are the moves that require you to hold L2.  I will put my personal
rating, Ki output, and damage output.



L2+Circle -- Solar Flare (uses 2 balls)
Rating: 2/5  Damage: 0

I never liked this move.  It is only good to get in a quick finishing move
before the enemy regains focus.  It is also good if you want to run from the 
enemy to regain Ki, because the enemy loses his lock on you.


L2+Up+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating 3/5  Damage: 2,500

A good move for wanting to keep distance between you and the opponent.  Also, 
it can prevent all Ki blasts from hitting you.  However, this move leaves you 
vulnerable to a finishing move from an opponent, and it doesn't deal good 
damage.

L2+Triangle -- Kamehameha (uses 33000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 10,000

Always one of my favorite moves to use in a fight.  It deals decent damage, can
engage in a wave struggle, and can cancel out Full Power Energy Blast Volley's.
It also costs little Ki.  The only problem would be that he has a stronger 
move.

L2+Up+Triangle -- Special Beam Cannon (uses 68000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 15,500

This is his best move.  It has the same effects of the Kamehameha.  The 
problem would be the Ki cost.  Some characters have moves that cost less, but
do almost as much  damage.

L2+Down+Triangle -- Drain Life Cell (uses 91000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 17,000

This is his Super Finishing Move and requires Max Power.  This move is also a 
rush move.  This move costs a bit much, so I almost never use it.  It restores
some health and causes a decent amount of damage.  Another problem would be 
it being a rush move.  This means that the enemy can launch a finishing move
to stop you after wasting all of that Ki.

------------------------------
6. Cell 2nd Form  [C2F]
------------------------------

We first see this form Cell takes on when he abosrbs Android 17.  In the
anime/manga, he receives a massive power increase over his previous form.  
The power gained in this form is so great, that Android 16, whom he stood
evenly with before, tried to fight Cell, but he got half of his head blown off 
instead.  As the two remaining androids hid, he proceeded to blow up islands
around the area to find them and absorb #18.  It wasn't until Vegeta, having 
completed his training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber, appeared and could
have killed Cell then.  However, Cell took advantage of Vegeta's Saiyan blood 
and persuaded him to allow him to absorb #18.  Vegeta's arrogance got the 
better of him and allowed Cell to absorb the android.
This form is the least favorite Cell form for me.  In the anime/manga, he was 
still very fast in this form.  In the game, they made him as slow as Trunks
in the Ultra Super Saiyan form.  To unlock this form of Cell, you must defeat
him as Super Saiyan Super Vegeta in the Z Battle Gate Mode.


6.1 Character Illustration and Stats [C2FCIS]

This is the Character Illustration for Cell 2nd Form.

" Doctor Gero's ultimate Android, after absorbing Android 17 and taking his
second form.
Unlike his first form, which was similar to an insect, this form has a
more humanoid shape to it.
While still in his first form, Cell was outmatched by the power of Android
16. After absorbing Android 17 and transforming into his second phase,
however, Cell was able to cripple Android 16 with a single blow.
Powerful though he was, Cell later found himself at the mercy of Super
Vegeta. Only by appealing to Vegeta's battle-hungry Saiyan instincts was
Cell able to talk his way out of certain doom.
There are no significant changes to the techniques Cell uses in his
second form, although with his increased power level, his attacks are
capable of causing considerably greater damage.
Even seen in the best light, few would venture to describe Cell as
handsome. He, on the other hand, is quite enarmored with his own
appearance."
____________________________________________________

Now, these are Cell 2nd Form's stats:

Health: 4 (56,000)
Ki: 1 (30,000)
Attack: 5
Defense: 1
Speed: 1
FT: 2
FM: 4
SFM: 1

Yikes, do these stats suck.  His speed sucks in this form, but his attack
attempts to make up for it, but fails to do that.  His defense is also very 
bad.



6.2  Move Set   [C2FMS]



L2+CIRCLE -- Solar Flare (uses 2 balls)
Rating: 2/5  Damage: 0

Same review as Cell 1st Form.

L2+UP+CIRCLE -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,550

Same review as Cell 1st Form.

L2+TRIANGLE -- Kamehameha (uses 34000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 10,500

Same review as Cell 1st Form.

L2+UP+TRIANGLE -- Drain Life Cell (uses 54000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 11,000

Same review as Cell 1st Form.  However, it costs much less Ki.

L2+DOWN+TRIANGLE -- Big Bang Attack (uses 91000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 23,500

This is SS Vegeta's Super Finishing Move.  It does good damage but the Ki 
cost is a bit high.  Also, if the opponent uses a move that can initiate a beam
struggle, this move is negated.

-----------------------------------
7. Cell Perfect Form  [C3F]
-----------------------------------

We first see this form of Cell after he absorbs Android 18.  This form receives
another very high power boost from the previous form.  In this form, even 
Vegeta had no chance against him.  Vegeta's attempts against him were regarded
as a warm-up by Cell, causing Vegeta to get very angry and resort to using the 
Final Flash.  The move blew off his left arm and part of his left side, but 
Cell just regenerated.  It was at this that Cell started his attack and knocked
out Vegeta.  Trunks then powered up to the USSJ mode and attacked Cell
at full strength.  However, this mode caused Trunks' speed to decrease.  Cell
kept dodging his attacks and showed him his downfall by powering up to Trunks'
form and explaining the decrease in speed.  He then decided to hold the Cell 
Games to test the earth's warriors.

The first to fight him was Goku, and after a while, Goku gave the fight to 
Gohan.  Gohan was being beaten horribly by Cell for a time, until he told 
Cell about his hidden powers.  Cell became intrigued and decided to unleash
7 Cell Juniors to attack the other fighters.  Android 16, now repaired and 
fighting for good, tried to self destruct, but Krillen told him that the bomb 
was removed.  Cell then knocked his entire head off, and kicked it across the 
field.  When the android's head was talking to Gohan, Cell finally killed him.
This caused Gohan to turn Super Saiyan 2.  Gohan then killed the Cell Jrs.
and focused on Cell.  His power surpassed Cell to such an extent that Cell 
had to use the form Trunks used against him.  Cell was still beaten and
regurgatated Android 18.  He then activated a self desturct sequence to destroy
earth.  Goku used Instant Transmission to get him off of earth.  He blew up
on King Kai's planet.  

This form of Cell is an improvement over the last form.  His speed is back
as high as 1st Form in this form.  This form is right in the middle of the 
other forms he has as my favorite. To unlock this form, defeat this form as 
SS2 Gohan in Z Battle Gate mode.

7.1 Character Illustration and Stats  [C3FCIS]

This is the abridged version of Cell Perfect Form's Character Illustration.
The reason for the shortening of the Character Illustration is because it 
repeats the last two paragraphs and  the the entire Cell 2nd Form Character 
Illustration. 

"Doctor Gero's ultimate Android, after absorbing Android 18 and achieving
his Perfect Form.
Though he was outmatched by Vegeta in his second form, he now has enough
power to easily swat the Saiyan aside. Overjoyed by his new abilities,
Cell proclaims himself "The Ultimate Android".
Not interested in meaningless slaughter and destruction, Cell instead
wishes to test his powers against worthy opponents. He therefore holds
the Cell Games, an imitation of the World Tournament." 
_______________________________________________________

These are Cell Perfect Form's stats:

Health: 3 (44,880)
Ki: 3 (34,000)
Attack: 3
Defense: 2
Speed: 4
FT: 3
FM:3
SF:1

Good stats.  SF could be a little higher, though.  Also, defense could be 
higher.  Otherwise, good stats.



7.2 Move Set   [C3FMS] 


L2+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,600

Same review as Cell 1st Form.

L2+Up+Circle -- Afterimage (uses 2 balls)
Rating: 5/5  Damage: 0

A great evasive manuever.  If used just right, you can pretty much avoid 
anything thrown at you.  I prefer it over Instant Transmission, because I.T 
needs at least a second to charge.

L2+Triangle -- Super Kamehameha (uses 43000 ki)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 14,500

Same review as Cell 1st Form.

L2+Up+Triangle -- Destructo Disc (uses 42000 ki)
Rating 3/5  Damage: 14,300

Deals almost as much damage as the Super Kamehameha, and costs less Ki.  The 
only problem would be that it can be canceled out by energy waves.

L2+Down+Triangle -- Perfect Barrier (uses 91000 ki)
Rating: 5/5  Damage: 21,500

His version of a Super Explosive Wave.  Deals great damage and can shield him
from any attack when used with the proper timing.  

-----------------------------------------------
8. Perfect Cell Perfect Form  [C4F]
-----------------------------------------------

We first see this form of Cell when he self destructs and regenerates.  When 
everyone thought Cell was killed, he came back even stronger than before.  His
first act was to kill Trunks.  Vegeta became irate and attacked Cell with all 
of his power.  Cell knocked Vegeta away like a fly and would have killed him 
too if Gohan didn't jump in the way of the blast.  Gohan's left arm was 
rendered useless afterwards.  Cell then charged a Kamehameha Wave that could
blow up the earth.  Gohan, with encouragement and strength from his father in
the Other World, fired back at the same time.  They engaged in a struggle 
where Cell looked like he may win.  Everyone then jumped in to distract Cell.
Cell blew them away with his aura, until Vegeta shot his Big Bang Attack at 
him.  Cell lost his focus and lost the wave struggle.  His body was completely
destroyed in the blast, and the earth enjoyed seven years of peace time.

This is my favorite form of Cell and among my favorite characters in the game.
To unlock this form, you need to fuse the earrings Super Saiyan Goku + Cell
Perfect Form.


8.1 Character Illustration and Stats  [C4FCIS]

This is the Perfect Cell Perfect Form Character Illustration.

"Cell in his perfect form, after returning from the brink of death, even
more powerful than before.
After his self-destruction on King Kai's planet, Cell was presumed to be
dead. Unfortunately, the nucleus inside his head survived the blast, and
from this Cell was able to regenerate himself.
Thanks to the Saiyan cells from which he was created, Cell's power level
was increased significantly after his near-death experience. And having
absorbed Goku's Instant Transmission Technique, he was able to quickly
return to Earth.
At his first act upon returning to Earth, Cell eliminated Trunks with a
single shot. Gohan was then badly injured as he tried to protect Vegeta
from a similar attack. Wasting no time, Cell launched a Super Kamehameha,
intent on destroying the whole planet, but with his father's
encouragement, Gohan is able to turn back the blast, and Cell is
completely obliterated.
Cell's appearance has changed a little in this new form, but as a
testament to his new power, his body is now surrounded by a
lightning-like aura, similar to that of a Super Saiyan 2.
In addition to all previously mentioned fighting moves, Perfect Cell is
also capable of performing the Death Beam and Spirit Bomb techniques. And
with the added ability of Instant Transmission, it could be argued that
Cell has in fact become the perfect warrior."
___________________________________________________________

These are  Perfect Cell Perfect Form's stats:

Health: 3 (45,600)
Ki: 3 (44,000)
Attack: 4
Defense: 2
Speed: 4
FT: 3
FM: 3
SF: 1

Good stats, once again.  Defense could be higher.


8.2 Move Set   [C4FMS]



L2+Circle -- Instantaneous Transmission (uses 2 balls)
Rating: 4/5  Damage: 0

A great move when in trouble.  This is most useful when you have Max Power or
enough Ki for a finishing move.  That way, when you are behind the opponent, 
you can surprise them with a Spirit Bomb.

L2+Up+Circle -- Explosive Wave (uses 1 ball)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 2,600

Same review from Cell 1st Form.

L2+Triangle -- Super Kamehameha (uses 43000 ki)
Rating: 4/5 Damage: 14,500

Same review as the Kamehameha for Cell 1st Form.

L2+Up+Triangle -- Death Beam (uses 41000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 11,500

Deals less damage than the Super Kamehameha, but costs almost the same amount
of Ki to use.

L2+Down+Triangle -- Spirit Bomb (uses 100000 ki)
Rating: 3/5  Damage: 30,000

This move is a bit overrated.  The firing rate is slow enough that the enemy 
could either dash, move, or Afterimage out of the way.  It does do great damage
if it hits, but you should only launch it if you are at close range, like after
Instantaneous Transmission.  The Ki cast also is a bit high for all of the risk
involved in trying to hit it.
_______________________________________________________________




-----------------------------
9. Z Battle Gate [ZBG]
-----------------------------

This is the game's story mode.  Here, I will include the times where you fight
as and against Cell.  Most fights must be treated as normal fights, so expect 
to see, "Treat this fight as you would an ordinary fight" alot.  



9.1 Z Battle Gate as Cell [ZBGAC]

These are the fights where you play as Cell.  He in his Perfect Form for all
fights except for two, which he is in his Super Perfect Form.  Here is the list
of fights that have you playing as the ultimate android.
________________________________________________________

 The True Ultimate Android: (What If scenario.  The what if's answered are
What if Cell beat Gohan, and What if Cell fought Super 17.)

To unlock this scenario, beat the scenarios, Android Saga, Future Super 
Warrior, and The Ultimate Android.  

Battle 1 - Perfect Cell vs SS Super Trunks- Use Ki blasts as your main source 
of attack and damage.  Other than that, fight normally.
 
Battle 2 - Perfect Cell vs SS Super Vegeta- Treat this fight as you would an
ordinary fight.

Battle 3 - Perfect Cell vs SS2 Goku- Why is Goku a SSJ2 in this fight?  He was
only SSJ when he fought Cell, so why the increase in level? Anyway, treat this
fight as you would an ordinary fight. 

Battle 4 - Perfect Cell Perfect Form vs SS2 Teen Gohan- This fight is not as 
difficult as I thought.  Use finishing moves to weaken Gohan, until you can
charge your Ki to Max Power.  You must finish Gohan with the Spirt Bomb to win,
so make sure his can be beaten with it before you launch it.  Launch it to 
defeat Gohan once and for all.
 
Battle 5 - Perfect Cell Perfect Form vs Super 17- The battle of the Ultimate
Androids.  Treat this like the above battle, and you will be fine.  I do not
recommend using the Spirit Bomb against him because of its speed.

End of The True Ultimate Android, also end of section.
________________________________________________________




9.2 Z Battle Gate against Cell [ZBGAGC]

These are the fights you fight against Cell in.  Most of the fights are in the
Android Saga, with one or two fights being elsewhere.  Here are the list of 
fights with strategies posted next to them.
_____________________________________________________________

Android Saga:

This saga is unlocked from the start.

Piccolo vs 1st Form Cell- Treat this fight as you would an ordinary fight.

Android 16 vs 1st Form Cell- Treat this fight as you would an ordinary fight.

Tien vs 2nd Form Cell- Fight using Ki blasts to weaken him.  When you build up
enough Ki, charge to Max Power and finish him with a Neo Tri-Beam.  

SSJ Super Vegeta vs 2nd Form Cell- Treat this fight as you would an ordinary 
fight.

SSJ Super Vegeta vs Perfect Cell - This fight is a bit harder than the previous
ones.  Try to use Finishing Moves as your main source of damage in this fight.
When ready, charge to Max Power and finish him with the Final Flash.

SSJ Super Trunks vs Perfect Cell- You may need to adjust your fight strategy
a little to make up for the lack of speed Trunks has.  Otherwise, fight as
normal. 

Hercule vs Perfect Cell- This fight was easier than it should have been.  Fight
as normal.
 
SSJ Goku vs Perfect Cell - This fight was fun to play.  Fight normally until 
possible to beat him with one finishing move.  Knock him away, then charge to
Max Power.  Use the Instantaneous Transmission Kamehameha attack to finish
off Cell.  (That has to be my favorite move in the game, next to the Kaioken 
Attack)

SSJ Teen Gohan vs Perfect Cell- Treat this fight as you would an ordinary fight.
 
SSJ2 Teen Gohan vs Perfect Cell- The fight is very easy to play.  Fight as 
normal, but remember to finish him with a Super Kamehameha.

SSJ Super Vegeta vs Super Perfect Cell- This fight is a survival fight.  Rely 
on using just finishing moves to keep him away from you.  If he does come close
to you, guard as best as you can against his attacks, as he is very strong in
this fight.   

SSJ2 Teen Gohan vs Super Perfect Cell- Among one of my favorite moments in the 
anime sadly cannot be relived in the game.  I am talking about the Kamehameha 
Wave struggle between these two characters.  Anyway, fight as if you are 
fighting on a harder difficulty than before.  The spamming of Sq, Sq, Sq, Sq, X
or Tri. does not work against him.  You need to mix it up during the fight, or 
rely on using finishing moves to weaken him.  When you inflict enough damage, 
begin charging to Max Power, or use Power up to the Very Limit if you have
enough favorite move orbs.  Then, launch the Super Kamehameha to finish Cell
once and for all.

End of Android Saga.
_____________________________________________________________


Future Super Warrior:
To unlock this scenario, clear the Android Saga.

SSJ Trunks vs. Cell 1st Form- Treat this fight as you would an ordinary fight.

End of Future Super Warrior.

10 Author's Notes  [ARN]
-----------------------------------

So, what do you think of this FAQ?  The enemy I used to test the damage outputs
was Yamcha.  The reason for this was he has a defense of 1.  I may include if 
the damage decreases in increments when I test on enemies of 2 and 3 defense.
If I notice a pattern, I will include it on the appropriate section.  Also, if 
anything I typed for a bio contradicts the Character Illustration. go by the 
Character Illustration, as that is what really happened.  Other than this, I
you enjoyed reading this FAQ.  Until next time.

Update- I got around to do the test on Golu and Baby-Vegeta to see if the 
damage decreased in a specific amount.  It decreased but not by a specific
amount or percentage.  Because of this, I will only have the damage caused to
Yamcha on the FAQ.



---------------------------
11. Q and A  [QNA] 
---------------------------

The first eight questions are questions I made up, but I will update this 
section with real question when the FAQ is posted, and the questions start 
coming in.

Q1: Why do you have a bio for the character if you copied the in-game
Character Illustration?

A1:  The reason for that was to introduce the character a bit.  The Character
Illustration has much more info than I could give.  I give my POV, while the
Character Illustration gives what actually happened.  Also, some of the 
bios I typed may include info that the Character Illustration does not have.

Q2:  Why did you not include Ultimate Battle/Potara Earring suggestions in the
FAQ.

A2: Recently, it has come to my attention that any earrings you use will not 
work in UB mode.  This may be a flaw that Spike looked over when making this
game, and I am hoping it is fixed for the next game.  Thanks goes to 
ssj4warrior for telling me this on the message boards.  As for Potara 
suggestions, they can only be used in Dueling, World Tournament, and Practice, 
so I let the reader decide what to equip on their character.

Q3:  Can I put your FAQ on my website?

A3: No.  I will only put this FAQ on GameFAQs and no where else.  I prefer it
this way, because that means there is only one site to keep track of that has
this FAQ posted.

Q4:  Will you do other FAQ's for this game?

A4:  I may.  I am considering about doing a Broly FAQ, but I am not 100% set on
doing it.

Q5: Why isn't Cell Jr. in the FAQ?

A5:  Cell Jr. is not a form of Cell.  They are just just his creations that 
he made for the sole purpose of making Gohan angry.  I will consider
Cell Jr. a separate character for the intents and purposes of the FAQ.

Q6: Why did you not include the controls of the game in the FAQ?

A6: There are two reasons for this. The first one is that the controls or in
the game manual.  I understand it if someone lost the manual, but that leads me
to reason two:  the game has a tutorial mode, so you can relearn the controls
there.

Q7:  Is this the best Budokai game?

A7:  In a technical sense, it is not a Budokai game.  In Japan, it is called
Dragon Ball Z: Sparking.  In the states, the name was changed to try to connect
it to the Budokai series.  However, I would say that Budokai 3 is the best 
game.  

Q8:  Why are the Z Battle Gate fights against Cell not numbered?

A8: The fights against Cell are not numbered because the fights do not come one
after another.  They have fights that take place in between them. To avoid 
confusion, I decided not to number them.
