What if Turles, Slug and Cooler took part in the Cell Games as allies of the Z-Fighters? With their strength adjusted to be within the realm of the stronger Z-Fighters.
Including if they contributed DNA to Cell or not.
Turles would be an SSJ but not quite on the level of Vegeta and Trunks. Slug can be around where Piccolo is, and Cooler (having trained for a week upon hearing about Cell) is a bit stronger than Goku and Gohan's Full-Powered SSJ states, but not on SSJ2 level. So instead of picking Goku, Cell picks Cooler, the strongest of the bunch. Neither fighter is holding back, and both are almost evenly matched, with Cell being slightly stronger. The fight is brutal, and both fighters are spent. With a trick up his sleeve, Cooler starts talking to Cell (out of earshot of everyone, save for Piccolo and Slug) about how they can conquer Earth together, and then the universe. Cooler even mentions that they're "family," all the while warming up an energy beam behind his back. Cell appears to be considering the offer--but then, with blinding speed, punches a hole through Cooler's chest, telling him "No. I am you, and your brother, but so much more...perfect."
The Z fighters watch in shock as Cooler bleeds to death.
Cell proclaims that there is no one left to challenge him, with the strongest being dead; even in his exhausted state, he is still the strongest. These events play out similarly; of the rest of the fighters, Gohan is the strongest, so Goku, knowing he himself stands very little chance, volunteers Gohan to fight. After the initial shock, Piccolo tells Gohan to not hold back anything against Cell. Goku still gives Cell the senzu, then tells Gohan, "I really wanted to fight him, son, but I don't stand a chance in hell. You do...I've seen it. You deserve to fight him at his best, so you'll know you're at yours. Now, go beat him, Gohan."
So FPSSJ1 Gohan fights Cell with everything he has from the get-go, no Pacifist nature or anything. He fights with urgency and desperation. Despite not being as strong as Cooler, Gohan is fighting with warrior instinct. While Cell tries to intimidate him, it is to no avail. Seeing that he cannot deter Gohan, Cell attempts to attack the onlooking Z Fighters. The very fact that Cell would attempt this enrages Gohan, and he goes into a fury, transforming into an SSJ2.
Everyone is shocked...everyone but Goku and Turles, who smirk. Cell sends a barrage of energy blasts and attacks at Gohan, laughing maniacally at Gohan standing still, believing Gohan to be killed. In the fire and smoke, we see Gohan walking forward, unscatched. Cell's eyes widen in utter terror. "I wasn't sure I'd be able to unlock this form again,"
Gohan says to Cell in a lower voice. "I unlocked this form, the Super Saiyan Beyond Super Saiyan, when I trained in the Room of Spirit and Time with Dad and Turles. You can thank Turles for my more vicious fighting techniques,"
he says calmly with a smile. Then the smile is gone, and Gohan says, "Your time is up, Cell. You won't live to threaten my friends again."
With lightning speed, the SSJ2 barrages Cell with a melee of punches and kicks, launching him into the air, and then firing a Super Kamehameha, putting into it all the fear and fury at the thought of losing any of his friends to the monster Cell. Believing in his strength, knowing his father believed in him enough to have him fight a full-powered Cell, Gohan obliterates Cell.
Erm, I got more invested in that than I expected to. Lol
