Chapter Synopsis

Cell takes in what he said about the plan being flawed, and is surprised about Trunks being this good. “Cell. In your perfect form, you were certainly incredibly strong. But as you are now, even I should be enough to defeat you.” Cell realizes that’s how he knows about all this, from being in the past. But he doubts Trunks can defeat him, explaining that he knows all about him from spy robots. He couldn’t even defeat No. 17 and No. 18. Trunks asks how come No. 17 and No. 18 are gone then. Cell can’t believe Trunks could’ve defeated them. Trunks says they need to go fight somewhere else, and uses a shockwave to blow Cell into the air. He flies after Cell, and the two of them land in a rocky place outside of the city.

Trunks turns Super Saiyan, and Cell also powers up. Trunks says he won’t let him go back to the past, and Cell charges at Trunks. Trunks blocks him, and then punches Cell. Cell is bleeding from the mouth, and then swings his tail at Trunks. But Trunks grabs Cell’s tail, and tosses him higher into the air. Cell stops himself mid-air and prepares to use a Kamehameha, but Trunks powers up, and lets off a huge blast with both hands, and shoots it up at Cell, completely destroying Cell. Then Trunks returns to normal, and says it’s finally all over, thanking Goku and the others. Trunks heads back home, and Bulma is glad to see him.

“Trunks, who has lived through a rough future… And for Bulma and everyone else, at last true peace has come to them. And that peace should stand, so long as Trunks is around…”

Chapter Notes

  • Each issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump features short comments from the various series’ authors, giving fans a brief insight into their current thoughts, ranging from series-related announcements to trivial happenings in their personal lives. Akira Toriyama’s comments from this issue were:
    またまた風邪をひいてしまった。体は丈夫な方なんだけど。でも齢のせいにはしたくない <明>

    I went and caught another cold. Even though my body’s on the resilient side. But I don’t want to chalk it up to age. <Akira>

Page Breakdown

The majority of the Dragon Ball series was drawn in black and white, but chapters were occasionally published with color pages. This breakdown notes how many full-color, limited-color, and black-and-white pages appeared in this chapter. As the tankōbon volumes were not released with these colors intact, any color pages shown are taken from the kanzenban release.
