    Dragonball Z: Budokai
    Cell Character FAQ
    By James "Lagunathemoron" Wardle
    Started on 31/12/2002
    Introduction: For the best Dragonball Z fighting game, 
    there are around twenty-five characters. Gamefaqs only has 
    a small number currently covered in the Characters FAQ 
    section so I thought to lend a hand by covering Cell, one 
    of my favorite characters in both the cartoon and the 
    videogame. I will cover Cell's moves, how to win with him, 
    his story mode "missions" and everything you need to know 
    on becoming a Cell expert.

    Disclaimer: I wrote this FAQ and I don't want anyone to rip 
    off my hard work. If you want to have this on you're 
    website, then please E mail me asking so, and if I give you 
    permission, keep it updated often, I don't want people E 
    mailing me with a question in the newer version of the 
    walkthrough, and the F.A.Q has to REMAIN THE SAME! That 
    means no name swapping, changing in writing. If you do, 
    make sure you have a good lawyer. I have listed some DO'S 
    and Don'ts here.
    Print this F.A.Q, and use it for help.

    If you E mail me with a question, please list the game you 
    are talking about. (I write F.A.Q's for quite a few games 
    you know) Also, please be specific with the questions / 
    tips. Do not E mail me and say "How do you get past the 
    thing near the thing" or questions already answered in the 
    FAQ, chances are you'll be ignored as I get quite a few e 
    mails about games per day.

    2) Cell's Basics
    Cell is one of the last characters you can obtain. 
    Unfortunately, this is a bad thing as he is an excellent 
    all-round character and is an ideal first character for a 
    first time game in Duel mode. His moves are quite easy to 
    pull off and he does have a reasonable strength, defense, 
    height and of course he has many forms, four (Or five 
    including his super secret one). The only character which 
    can stop Cell in this game is Gohan, and possibly Krillin. 
    For these two characters are tiny, Cell's huge legs often 
    make him kick and punch above the said characters. Cell 
    should not have trouble on any of the other characters. 
    Cell also has a two episode part of Story mode, just like 
    Vegeta and Frieze have, please refer to Story missions for 
    help on that. To unlock Cell you must defeat him in story 
    mode as Gohan.

    4) Tournament Mode
    Tournament Mode is tough, however using Cell it appears to 
    be quite a chore. The best thing to do is to sneak a few 
    attacks in which can gain you ki. Once you have five Ki's, 
    I highly recommend going in to third stage, then using 
    Cell's spirit bomb. This could know the other person out of 
    the wing, or make them lose a bit of their health. One 
    other way is to keep backing away from the rival and 
    running and hitting triangle, or send an enemy in to the 
    air and firing a Kamehameha at him or her. The essential 
    trick to beating the tournament as Cell is to do ring outs, 
    especially when coming to a powerful opponent such as Goku, 
    Gohan or even Trunks.
    5) Story Missions
    He is the main villain in Budokai but this doesn't stop him 
    from having two episodes. Cell gives us a tale of how he 
    came from the future and why, to absorb Android 17 and his 
    sister, Android 18. In the first battle, against Android 
    16, you need to back away and avoid his projectile attacks, 
    then head in with kicks and punches. You cannot archive 
    other forms yet, but Lasso is a good move to use at this 
    point. Next up is "Baldy" Krillin. He is actually quite 
    easy and can be taken down in a few hits. After this you 
    will have to fight the final boss of Dragonball Z: 
    Budokai... YAMCHA! Now you are in Cell's "perfect" form, 
    Yamcha is still tough. You need to keep away from him at 
    all costs and only attack him when he comes towards you. He 
    is quite tough, but not impossible.
    6)Frequently Asked Questions
    Q) Can you be Cellin
    A) Yes and no. You can in story mode for the final boss, 
    however you can not be Cellin in anything else.
    Q) Can you be Cell J.r
    A) No. You can only fight them in Story mode and Legend of 
    Mr. Satan mode.
    Q) Is Yamcha really the final boss?
    A) Unofficially, yes he is. You fight Cell many times as 
    Gohan but in the side-quest you must battle Yamcha as
