"Look, Cell might have power, but he can't catch Gohan! He's too bulky! His size is slowing him down!"
Future Trunks ("Cell's Mighty Breakdown")

"Buff Cell" is a transformation of Cell, a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. It makes its debut in "The Cell Games", the 165th episode of Dragon Ball Z, which premiered on November 18, 1992. It makes its first manga appearance in "Trunks Surpasses His Father", the 386th chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, issued on December 26, 1992.


After defeating Future Trunks in his Ultra Super Saiyan transformation, Perfect Cell assumes this buffed state to demonstrate the mistake Future Trunks made increasing his muscle mass, without balancing his speed as well. This otherwise unnamed form is again taken by Cell after he loses his temper with a Super Saiyan 2 Gohan. Though his raw strength in this state may be comparable to Gohan's, Cell's speed decrease impairs his ability to interpret damage, as evidenced when Gohan lands a heavy kick to Cell's stomach, causing him to regurgitate Android 18 and revert to his Semi-Perfect form.


Cell takes this buff form a second time, when he loses his temper against Gohan.


Despite ceasing to use this transformation after due to its obvious impairments, his buff stage is considered second only to Cell's Super Perfect form. It is uncertain if Cell is capable of using any techniques unseen in previous transformations, as he only appears buffed for brief periods of time. Nonetheless, "Buff Cell" is still markedly outclassed by Gohan in his Super Saiyan 2 transformation.
