Perfect Cell is a hybrid creature created by Gene. Gero, one of the smartest of the world in the series.
– To create a Cell, Dr. Gero has gathered the cells of the highs in the series, sending out super-bugs that track all the rivals and friends of Songoku. The most basic source of our cells is Songoku, Piccolo, Vegeta, Nappa … Both Frieza and King Cold come to Earth as well.
Because of its synthesis from many cell sources, Cell has all the capabilities that other players possess, such as he can recreate himself with Piccolo’s Namek blood, can increase strength after every fight with Saiyan blood. He can also attack Kamehameha or Genki-Dama like Songoku.
Especially, Cell also has a Saiyan fighting nature, so he always wants to fight and become the strongest, which is why he organized the “Cell Games” fight. Many people say that this is really the most worthy opponent of Songoku when he also has charisma, however Cell also has the cold nature of Vegeta and Frieza’s sinister.
Cell and events at the Timeline
– The future of Trunks:
This is the future time line, when Android 17, 18 devastated the world. Here Songoku died of a mysterious virus before the battle, all other characters including Vegeta, Piccolo, Tien Shihan, Yamucha, Gohan, Krillin … are killed by Android. At this time, Vegeta’s son Trunks has returned to the past to change his future.
This is the timeline of the characters in the series, in parallel and does not affect the future of the Trunks. The cell is only an embryo in the process of development. After the Trunks return, the current time line separates in a different direction so that the future of the Trunks is still devastated by Android. Cell was destroyed in the water with the future Trunks and Krillin.
– After the Trunks teamed up with Songoku with Cell and returned to the future, his strength became remarkable. He defeated the 17th and 17th in his time line. At this time, the Cells of this time have awakened, but are destroyed by the Trunks easily.
– Timeline 3:
When he returned to the past and battled the Songoku group in his prime time, Cell said that, in his time, both 17th and 17th were destroyed by the Trunks, so he had to destroy the Trunks and take over.
The time machine returns to the past. This creates a flaw in the plot, because if the Trunks are so strong that they can defeat # 17, # 18, then the Trunks are back to the past and become strong, the Cell can not kill the Trunks, So he could not return to the Songoku era and thus could not have “The Game of Cell”.
So to explain the logic of the hole, we have to assume that there is another time line, parallel to the future of Trunks and the present of Songoku, which is not mentioned by the author.
At this time, the group was completely destroyed by Android 17, 18, leaving only Trunks.
In a way, the Trunks have destroyed 17, 18, possibly by using a controller to deactivate them.
And when Cell wakes up here, he easily defeats the Trunks and takes the time machine back to the time of Songoku.
So we can summarize the Cell at the time as follows: Cell is now destroyed in the water, Future Cell 1 is destroyed by Trunks and Future Cell 2 is destroyed by the group Songoku “The Game of the Cell”.
