[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. ------------------------ 12.
