[[Category:{{{1}}}|Android 16 vs Cell]]

I was reading the Viz manga (I'm unsure about the validity of Viz's translation, but it's the only version I have) and two events had me curious. The first happens after 16 watches Piccolo and 17's losing battle against the recently more powerful Imperfect Cell. 16 decides to fight and says to 18 "I'm going to kill Cell". As you know, 16 delivers a heavy punch to Imperfect Cell, and 17 doubts 16's ability to fight Imperfect Cell. 16 then replies "If I've calculated correctly, my power is equal to Cell's". Taking this quote into account and adding the fact that 16 was able to put up quite a formidable resistance against Imperfect Cell (whereas Piccolo and 17 were decimated), even managing to hurt IC (16 even says "It's hurt, but not dead yet") whereas Piccolo's huge Light Grenade had no effect. Could 16 really have killed IC if he went all out? Or would 16 lose to IC?

My second question comes from the Cell Games, when 16 grapples Perfect Cell in a bear hug and says he's going to self destruct in order to kill PC. When 16 says this PC has a fearful look on his face, which to me indicates that 16's explosion could actually take PC out. Is this true? (on a side note, if 16's explosion wouldn't have done anything, then Perfect Cell wouldn't be scared). What are your thoughts? False Super Saiyan Jake (talk) 19:03, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

He indeed says "my power is equal to Cell's". I just don't remember why he loses that fight lol. As per their bombs, they said somewhere that it has the same power as a nuclear bomb, and was going to kill everyone in the Cell Games, but maybe it wont kill Cell, because even Cell's bomb didn't kill himself.

^ I didn't know the android's bombs were equivelant to a nuclear bomb, but if so you might be right about PC not being killed by 16's bomb. On the topic of why he lost the fight against Imperfect Cell, here's what happened:

After 16 slammed IC into the ground (more like THROUGH the ground lol) and fires his Hell Flash into the hole, a stunned 17 remarks that he (and 18) didn't expect 16 to be that strong. When 17 (or 18; I'm not quite sure who said it) said that 16 had killed IC, 16 states (like I said above) that IC was hurt but not dead. After 17 hears this, he says: "So it's hurt right? I'll finish it off!" Cell then jumps out of one of the many holes blasted open by the Hell Flash and proceeds to absorb 17, transforming Cell into his Semi-Perfect form. I wouldn't say 16 LOST the fight, he just wanted to buy time for 17 and 18 to escape and stop Cell from reaching his perfect form. I just was wondering if 16 was capable of actually killing Imperfect Cell, which seems unlikely now that I give it a bit more thought. False Super Saiyan Jake (talk) 20:51, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
