Suddenly, a teenager comes out of nowhere, beats the crap out of Frieza. Not only that, he is a Saiyan! Turing Super Saiyan, he kills Frieza and King Cold with his sword easily. All he says is that he is waiting for Goku, then two hours later, in the spot that the teenager predicted, Goku lands in a Saiyan pod. Goku tells of his troubles and also demonstrates his new teleportation technique. The teenager pulls Goku aside and asks him to turn into a Super Saiyan. Goku obides and Trunks says he will demonstrate a few moves he did on Frieza. Goku deflects all of the moves with only his index finger!

|Trunks, Android, and Cell Sagas
 The end of Trunks Saga 
Three years passed since Trunks's arrival. A lot has changed since then, Trunks from the future is now called Murai Trunks since Chibi Trunks is born, and Vegeta joins the Z warriors, but having the same attitude. The Z team go to the island that Murai Trunks told them to go to and they wait...For a while nothing happens. The Z team goes down to the city to investigate. They are told to raise their ki levels if they find one of them. Yamcha is the first to find one. Its Android 20 (Dr. Gero). Yamcha starts to raise his ki but Dr. Gero punches a whole through is stomache. Everyone heads to Yamcha. Gohan takes him to Bulma where Yajirobe arrives and gives him a senzu bean. Goku tells Dr. Gero that he will fight him if goes to a place where there is no people. They start to fly away. Dr. Gero decides that they have went far enough, so they stop to fight. Goku makes Dr. Gero explain how he knows who they are. He explains that ever since Goku was a child he has followed him around, watching his every move. It was with a little ladybug sort of thing. He stopped collecting data after he went to Namek. Goku surprises him by going SSJ. Dr. Gero comments it is quite an upgrade but nothing to be afraid of. Goku is the first to fight, he fights Android 19. Goku starts to do good when he starts to have a heart attack as Trunks predicted. Goku starts to lose as Android 19 starts to smash Goku. Then all of the sudden SSJ Vegeta shows up. He tells his story of how he became an SSJ then kills android 19 with ease. Android 20, not wanting to die, flees to his secret lab, the hunt is on. The rest of the Z team look for the Android as Yamcha takes Goku to his house where Chi chi is waiting with the medicine.
Android 20 is hiding from the Z team when he tries to sneak up on Piccolo. Piccolo is overpowering compared to the android and chops off one of his arms. Murai Trunks arrives from the future, he heads to the battlefield where he senses ki. He finds out that there is also two other androids that he has never seen before. Trunks arrives on the scene and sees his self (Chibi Trunks). Bulma finally notices that the purple haired guy is her future son. (Vegeta tells her). Trunks explains that these aren't the androids that he was talking about. Dr. Gero flees to his lab as he had originally planned. He decides to keep low so they won't sense his ki. The Z team follow Dr. Gero so he won't unleash his creations. Gohan takes Yajirobe, Bulma, and Chibi Trunks to a safer place. When the Z team finally find the lab they are too late. Instantly when the androis are brought to life, they rebel against Dr. Gero. Android 17 chops off his head. The androids aren't interested in fighting the Z team, only in fighting Goku. They unleashed even another android, Android 16. He is actually the strongest android (under Cell of course). Vegeta chases after the androids in hope for a fight, and that is just what he gets. First he fights Android 18. She is powerful than Vegeta in everyway. She breaks his arm, and leaves him lying there. Trunks steps in before she delivers the final blow. The androids defeat all of the Z team with ease. Now they head for they're main target, Goku. The Z warriors now notice that if they can't get some sort of training fast, then there is no way the can defeat them. Piccolo decides he must do something. He goes to Kami's Lookout to fuse with him. This makes Piccolo the strongest Z fighter for a while, Piccolo is a Super Namek.
The androids hit the road as they are still looking for Goku. They head to Goku'd house, thinking he will be there. Chi chi and Yamcha figure the androids will come so they head to Master Roshi's island. At this time Bulma makes a discovery. She finds another time capsule! Bulma, Gohan, and Trunks go there to check it out. They find a purple shell and somethig is lurking around near by.
 The end of Android Saga 
The new Cell heads to a town called Gingertown.Piccolo heads there and starts to fight. Cell is still too strong. Cell thinks that he is about to kill Piccolo so he tells him what he is and where he is from. (Cell is made of single cells from the srongest warriors in the univerese. The Cell that the Z team fights is from the Future. He killed Trunks in the future timeline and stole his time machine. (Hard to explain, its like the future of Murai Trunks's future, so the Murai Trunks that we know isn't dead.) This gives Piccolo enough time regenerate him arm. Cell is surprised by this, but knows that he got his regeneration cells from Piccolo. Cell gets away from Piccolo and seeks Android # 17. Meanwhile Trunks and Krillin head to Dr. Gero's lab so they can destroy the Cell of their timeline. It is in an underground secret lab that is under some debris. Trunks and Krillin eventually find it and destroy Cell before he grows. Goku finally gets better and could sense the evil powers when he was sleeping. Goku comes up with an idea to go to Kami's Lookout. At his lookout there is a room called the Hyperboloc time chamber. It is a room where you spend a year inside but only one day passes outside of the room. Piccolo is at Roshi's island and Android 17 shows up. They start to fight and Piccolo gets the advantage. All of the sudden Cell shows up. Piccolo knows that if Android 17 gets absorbed by him that he will be unstoppable. So he teams up with Android 17 and they try to defeat Cell. Android 16 gets in the fight for a while and does surprisingly well. But still not good enough. It is no use and Cell absorbs #17 and goes to his second stage.
 The end of Imperfect Cell Saga 
Tien takes over since everyone else is weak. He shoot several psychic blasts at Cell to give Android 18 and 16 a change to get away. Android 18 hides from Cell for a long time. During this time period most of the Z fighters are training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber. While training Trunks goes USSJ. Vegeta almost goes USSJ, but not quite.
When Vegeta and Trunks leave the time chamber, Goku and Gohan enter it. Goku and Gohan train together and Gohan goes to SSJ1 for the first time. Goku also goes USSJ. He notices that it is very strong but it lacks in speed. So he tells Gohan that they should train as Super Saiyans and also sleep as Super Saiyans. So when they actually power up it will be a great difference.
Meanwhile Vegeta goes to fight Cell in his second form and can actually beat him. But Vegeta wants a challenge and lets him absorb android 18 and becomes perfect. When Cell fights Vegeta, Vegeta doesn't offer a challenge anymore and gets defeated. Trunks is up next and fights Cell. He proves to Cell that he is more powerfull than Vegeta but Cell is much faster. Cell says that no one can offer a challange so he starts thinking of all the fights as games. Thus somes the title, Cell Games. Cell later announces that he will hold a tournament to the warriors that think they can defeat him.
 The end of Perfect Cell Saga 
The tournament begins. First, a fighter from Earth, who is really a coward that takes all the credit and is really weak, Hercule or Mr. Satan (uncut version). He gets defeated easily by on slap from Cell. Then, Goku fights with Cell. Goku gives it his all but still cannot defeat Cell. Goku pulls a great move and does a very powerfull Kamehameha. Cell thinks he's crazy because he won't blow up the Earth also. Then Goku does his instant transmission and shows up right in front of Cell, and shoots his Kamehameha. It blows up the top half of Cell and Cell just regenerates himself. The battle ends with Goku giving up because he knows that know matter how hard he tries he can't overpower Cell.
Goku passes it over to Gohan. Cell tries to piss off Gohan so that he will be more challenging. Then android 16 jumps in and bear hug Cell (he is now part of the Z team since Bulma and Dr. Briefs fixed him up.) He plans to self destruct on Cells back. He starts to power up but he realizes that he has no bomb inside of him. (Bulma and Dr. Briefs removed his bomb because they thought it would be a threat since they don't know if he will turn on them or not.) Cell notices this and turns around realy fast and blows the android to pieces. Android 16's head rolls over to Hercule and his gang and it scares the crap outta them because it starts talking. This still doesn't tip Gohan over the edge. The plan works when he creates seven Cell Jr's who all attack his friends. Then Android 16 asks Hercule to toss his head over to Gohan so he can talk to him. He says a few words and Cell comes over and stomps on his head. Gohan gets pushed off the edge and powers up and reaches SSJ2. Cell then realizes that he over did it. Gohan defeats the Cell Jr.'s with just one kick to each of them. Gohan starts to attack Cell. Gohan really beats up on Cell. Gohan does a good move when he lunges at Cell and punches him extremely hard in the gut. Cell starts to get sick and pukes up Android 18. Cell gets so mad that he self-destructs and tries to blow up the Earth. Goku quickly teleports Cell and himself to a safe distance. All of the sudden he shows up at King Kai's Planet. Cell blows up killing Goku, Bubbles, Gregory and King Kai. Everyone was sad, but the battle wasn't over yet, Cell regenerated from just one cell from his body. Cell teleports back to Earth and Cell then kills Murai Trunks. Cell learned the instant transmission when Goku died. This makes it possible for Cell to go to Earth. Vegeta gets really pissed and gives it his all to kill Cell, but no effect. As the battle goes on, Gohan's right arm gets crippled because when Cell defeats Vegeta again, he is about to kill him and Gohan jumped in the way. Gohan gets up and creates a Kamehameha, Cell then creates his own Kamehameha. It is a draw.All of the sudden Goku shows up and gives Gohan encouragement. He tells him to give it his all and to think of all the people he is fighting for. Gohan over powers Cell and kills every last cell of Cell. Everyone is wished back to life except Goku because he was already wished back to life once. But Goku was proud of his son and watched over him in the heavens, while King Kai kept on yelling at Goku for bringing Cell to his planet. Murai Trunks later returns to his own time. He then kills all the androids and Cell.
