    Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    In the cell saga a dragonball z, (i don't think i even need to spoiler tag this because it was so long ago) gohan got cocky and allowed cell to live long enough for him to get giant. I'm cool with this part, because that allowed him to get kicked so hard that cell puked up android 18. Here's what i DON'T get...

    Goku and everyone screams at this point for gohan to finish him off. Gohan stands by gloating for minutes before cell gets mad and blows himself up. Now for the area where this falls apart...

    Inperfect cell (full power) was stronger than either piccolo OR 17. Android 16 however was strong enough to match his strength. Semi perfect cell however was stronger than either of them. Super vegeta wiped the FLOOR with him. It wasn't even a close match. Trunks was essentially as strong as his father in his super saiyan grade 1 state. Meaning that defeating semi perfect would have been childs play. Even farther, trunks could go to a super saiyan grade 2 state (these names are taken from the dragonball wiki). In this form, he was easily stronger than his grade one state (almost strong enough to do damage against perfect cell, but he was too slow). Given that semi perfect cell wasn't as fast as perfect cell, SSG2 trunks could probably still match him in speed. Then you have goku. Goku was a mastered super saiyan. He has almost zero energy consumption from the super saiyan form, and can then power up if he needs to. He stated that he was MUCH stronger than vegeta in that form.

    Anyway, when cell was reduced back to his semi perfect form... why didn't ANY of those people quickly finish him off?
    They all had senzu beans so they were at full strength again. Even if they weren't, each of them could have offed him easily. Hell, piccolo could have done some damage. A destructo disk would have hurt. why didn't ANY of them jump in for several minutes giving him time to prep a self destruct?

    Because it was Gohan's time to shine I guess. DBZ is full of plotholes.

    I really really don't understand why people are still talking about this it was YEARS AGO. This past month of october was so full of this and gohan and cell and gohan and cell. I can't believe this is still going on, did i miss something.

    Re: Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    I'm pretty sure the DBZ mangaka said so himself that he didn't create the manga to make perfect sense. It was back when the only purpose was entertainment, he accomplished that. His story wasn't meant to be perfect, although I do agree with you

    DBZ has so many plot holes, like the majority of anime 20 years ago.

    It was a simpler time, when people couldn't complain over the internet and just had to accept it.

    Re: Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    Plot is the answer to your question. Goku was supposed to go back to Otherworld to train so he could achieve SS3. How could he do that if he was alive? They used this as a chance to send Goku to Otherworld because I'm pretty sure no one else could have killed him except for maybe Gohan and we all know that wasn't going to happen.

    Re: Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    I hear what your'e saying , but this was all part of the plot , it was Gohan's time & he was making his own mistakes in battle , that's why things happened the way they did .........stay tune ...oh wait , the series it's over. 0_o

    This. It was a 1v1 arena fight. What's to stop them all from teaming up and pummeling Cell? Nothing. But it was a tournament.

    I'm pretty sure Cell said if they attacked him, he would blow quicker.

    Then why did 16 get involved? Cell sent his Cell Jrs. after the Z team. How was that a 1 on 1 tournament anymore. He was threatening to freaking blow up the Earth. At that point, there are no rules anymore.

    Give me a moment: you're surprised that there are plot holes in DBZ? Obviously, such Shonen trash is going to be principally characterized by them!

    Re: Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    That is not a plot hole.

    Please stop using words you don't understand.

    saiyans have pride.

    Its the same reason why goku gave cell a senzu bean after there fight.

    They were not going to jump him.

    (Although,near the end that is exactly what they did lol)

    BTW a destructo disk would of done nothing cell can regenerate.

    Ok, but trunks doesn't buy that bullshit does he? He tried to take out cell before. When he went to his semi perfect form, he had the chance. da fuq

    just read the manga, its already been explained.

    As for Goku, his purpose was to hand off the torch to Gohan.

    Re: Cell saga plot hole confirmed

    The anime lengthened the time after he lost his perfect form.

    In the manga, he immediately started getting bigger to blow up after losing #18. So there was no time for them to finish him off.

    out of all of the plotholes in the Cell Games you chose one that wasn't really a plot hole.. Makes sense to me
