Showdown! Cell vs. Goku! (「決戦！セル対孫悟空」 Kessen! Seru Tai Son Gokū, lit. "Decisive Battle! Cell vs Son Goku") is the eighty-eighth episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai. Its Japanese air date was January 9, 2011. Its American air date was November 10, 2011. Its Dragon Ball Z counterparts are "Goku vs. Cell" and "Cell's Bag of Tricks".
Super Saiyan Goku and Cell begin to fight and, despite putting on an impressive performance, Gohan and Vegeta both realize that neither is using his full power yet. Both fighters then raise their ki to their maximum. After a brief battle, Cell begins to attack using techniques 'inherited' from other characters; first Tien Shinhan's Multi-Form, then Piccolo's Special Beam Cannon, and finally Frieza's Death Saucer. When Goku overcomes each of these techniques, Cell prepares a full-power Kamehameha capable of destroying the Earth. Goku diverts the attack away from the planet by taking it to the sky, and then uses Instant Transmission to flee back to the ring.
