Gingertown is a suburb of West City. It's entire population was absorbed by Imperfect Cell during the Imperfect Cell Saga. Not long thereafter, the news agencies from West City arrived, but were also absorbed. It is also the site of Imperfect Cell's fight with the Super Namek, Piccolo (Piccolo's first fight after fusing with Kami). The town was mostly destroyed during the fight between Piccolo and Imperfect Cell. Cell was too strong for Piccolo to defeat him, probably because the city had a large population, thus greatly increasing Cell's strength. After Cell's defeat, the Z Fighters used the Dragon Balls to resurrect those who were killed by Cell, among whom were the town's citizens.
