Cell, one of Dr. Gero's greatest creations. He is a creature who was formed from the genetic material of the most powerful
warriors known at the time of his creation. Such warriors are Goku, Vegeta, Freeza, King Kold, Piccolo, and many more. Because
of the fact he was formed from these fighters he is also able to do their moves such as; Goku's Kame-hame-ha, Piccolo's regeneration
ability and his Makkankosappo (special beam cannon), Tienshinhan's Taioken (solar flare), etc. Making him the ultimate fighting
machine. Please stop reading here if you do not want to spoil the episodes for yourself.
Cell actually didn't come from the DBZ timeline that is shown because the lab the un-developed cell was in became
destroyed, he didnt even come from Future Trunks timeline (the Future Trunks that we know of), he came from a completely different
timeline where Trunks beat the androids. In this timeline this was a big problem for Cell because he needed to absorb Android
#17 and #18 in order to become "Perfect" and be the ultimate fighting machine. He killed Trunks and took the time
machine that Trunks used in his time line (it's honestly too difficult to explain). Turning himself back to a previous state
in his development (an egg like form) so he could fit in the machine, he traveled back in time to the timeline that we know
of to a few years before Trunks arrival.
Cell gave re-birth to himself over time and hatched. He quickly brought himself to the form he was at before the time
travel. The Z Warriors discovered the remnant shell(s) and were very confused. Cell began going to various places around the
country/world causing panic by taking finding people and by using his tail he absorbs their life energy to become stronger.
Piccolo after merging with Kami found Cell by accident from sensing Goku's ki (ki means energy) and many other Z Warriors
ki all in the same spot. After fighting a little while with Piccolo, Cell learned how much stronger Piccolo was than himself.
He knew winning was impossible and used a Taioken (solar flare) to escape. Now for any other enemy in DBZ before this point
it wouldn't of worked but Cell could lower his ki just like any other DBZ character making him difficult to find and catch.
So Cell continued on his path of destruction and whent to more cities gathering extra energy.
When Cell learned (sensed) Piccolo's fight with Android #17 he quickly whent to the battle where he easily beat both
Piccolo and #17 (he was much stronger now because of all the people he absorbed). Cell absorbed Android #17 and transformed
to a new level of power and physical appearance (his second stage). Tienshinhan happened to be there and used a force blow
attack (the name eludes me so if someone out there reading this remembers the name of the attack please contact me). The attack
essentially detains Cell for Android #16 and #18 to escape from Cell so #18 wont be absorbed. Goku recently recovered knows
he can't fight Cell but he can't wait for Trunks and Vegeta to leave the room of spirit and time, Goku teleports himself there
and gets Tien and Piccolo out and back to Kami's tower.
Cell continued to search for #18 but after Vegeta and Trunks got out of the room of spirit and time he stopped to
fight Vegeta. Vegeta easily beat him down but Cell convinced Vegeta to let him absorb #18. Cell whent into his "Perfect
Form" and became extremely poweful. He fought Vegeta again and knocked him out. Trunks too tried to fight Cell but was
unsuccessful. Since Cell was now in his Perfect Form it was all just a game to him....Litterally and set up the Cell games.
He gave all the warriors time to train while he waited.
Goku tried very hard to defeat Cell at the games and even though with all his training Goku was unable to win. Goku
transfered the fight over to his son, Gohan. Gohan tried hard to fight but was on un-equal ground with Cell. When Cell learned
of Gohan's possible hidden power through anger he wanted to trigger it so he released the "Cell Jr's" from his body
and had them attack the Z Warriors and told them to kill them if they wanted. When #16's android's head was thrown over to
where Gohan was by Mr. Satan, #16 asked Gohan to protect the animals etc. that he loved so much. Cell walked over and crushed
the head of #16. Pushing Gohan two steps over the edge.
Gohan whent Super Saiya-jin level two and destroyed the Cell Jr.'s. Gohan fought Cell and when he learned he couldnt
defeat Gohan so he decided to self destruct. When all looked hopeless Goku remembered his teleportation ability and transported
Cell away from the earth and Goku was killed and it appeared as though it killed Cell also. But one of Cell's cell's(sounds
wierd but it's true) survived and Cell returned to earth even stronger than he was before. Nevertheless, Cell was defeated
by Gohan in a large Kame-hame-ha battle. Concluding the Cell Saga which is considered to be one of the best if not THE best
saga in DBZ with it's constant twists of the plot line, keeping the viewers interested.
The Ginyu Force is Freeza's own special task force. They are the absolute best of the best in the known universe. Consisting
of five essential members. Burter, a tall blue fish form character who is supposed to be one of the fastest creatures in the
universe. Recoome, the red head and bulky character who holds an incredible amount of strength and power. Guldo, the small
green frog-like character who has the ability to freeze time. Jeice, who is red with white hair and seems to have a fair amount
of power in every aspect instead of it being completely in an individual trait. Finally, Ginyu, the purple and horned leader
of the Ginyu Force who is not only extremely powerful but also has the ability to switch bodies with another individual.
The Ginyu Force's history is short but important. Freeza sends for them to collect the Dragonballs which all his other
henchmen failed to do. The Ginyu Force caught up with Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin before they were able to make their wish.
Ginyu took the dragonballs back to Freeza's spaceship from there Vegeta, Gohan, and Krillin were forced to face the remaining
four members. First Gohan and Krillin took on Guldo and failed to win, Vegeta came to their rescue and killed Guldo. Then
Vegeta took on Recoome with valiant effort but without succeeding, Gohan stepped in but also failed to bring him down but
had his neck broken by Recoome. Luckily Goku's ship landed just shortly after this happened. Goku defeated Recoome and Burter
with a single attack on each of them. Jeice became frightened and whent to get Captain Ginyu.
After getting Captain Ginyu, he and Jeice returned. Krillin and Gohan took off and Vegeta abandoned Goku just before
the fight. Ginyu fought Goku and he seemed to have the advantage, but Ginyu knew Goku was hiding his true power. He convinced
Goku to show it, but from doing this it revealed Goku was much stronger than Ginyu. Ginyu knowing winning was impossible,
intentionally hurt himself severely. He held out his arms, screamed "CHANGE!" and switched bodies with Goku. Ginyu,
then in Goku's body took off for Freeza's spaceship.
Upon returning, Ginyu and Jeice found Krillin and Gohan who had found the dragonballs. After realizing that the man
in Goku's body was not Goku, Krillin and Gohan reluctantly fought with Ginyu who had not adjusted to the change of bodies
and his power level was relatively low. As his power slowly increased Goku arrived in Ginyu's old body and helped fight. Vegeta
began and ended a fight with Jeice, then decided to fight with Ginyu in Goku's body. Vegeta attacked and easily beat Ginyu,
Ginyu made an attempt to switch to Vegeta's body but Goku in Ginyu's body jumped in the way and therefore both were back to
their original selves. Ginyu now restored to his own body was once again attacked and beat up by Vegeta. Ginyu made one last
try to switch bodies with Vegeta but Goku through a namekian frog in the way. Ginyu then became the frog and the frog became
That for the most part ended the Ginyu Force legacy, Ginyu did however make one final attempt to get to a stronger
body. He be-friend Bulma while Goku and Freeza's fight was going on. Bulma created a device to allow her new frog friend to
talk. Ginyu could then scream "CHANGE!" switching bodies with Bulma. Ginyu in Bulma's body whent to the battlefield,
finding Piccolo there he began to do his change sequence but, Gohan discovered it was not really Bulma, threw the frog that
the real Bulma was inhabiting, directly into the path between Piccolo and Ginyu. Ginyu was then changed back into a frog and
Bulma was herself again. Finally the Ginyu Force members do make some short appearances in the Dragon Ball Z series while
in the afterlife.
