Cell is a bio Android that was created by Dr. Gero’s supercomputer. He was responsible for absorbing most of the earth’s population and he was the cause of Goku’s death.

So that is why Goku was missing for 7 years until the Mijin Buu saga started.

How was Cell Created?

Cell was created by combining different DNA samples from different Dragon Ball fighters like Goku and Frieza who are known to be strong.

When Cell first appeared, he was the strongest bio Android on the plant.

So now that we have known a little bit about Cell’s past, what we really want to know now is Cell’s actual age in Dragon Ball Z Series.


How Old is Cell?

Cell, when he was in his Perfect form fighting against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan in Dragon Ball Z, he was 6 years old at the time.

So once again, Cell was created by combining the greatest fighters cells that lived on planet earth or had recently visited the planet.

So how did Dr. Gero get the DNA of all these different strong fighters?

Well, Dr. Gero used a tiny little robot that is about the size of a honey Bee to scrap the DNA cells of the fighters and study them.

So, after Dr. Gero gathered all the cells, he started working on bio Cell. However, since it was taking too long he canceled the project about bio Cell.

Nonetheless, Dr. Gero’s supercomputer kept the work going on bio Cell and was able the finish him.

Now, after a few years had passed in the Dragon Ball Age 786, Bio Cell was completed and was born.

Dr. Gero’s Supercomputer

Cell found out from the supercomputer when he was born that to achieve his perfect form, he needed to absorb Android 17 and 18.

Unfortunately, for Cell they had been destroyed already. So he went around absorbing as many people as he could to become stronger.

However, Cell was never able the locate and find the Androids. So, two years later, through a lot of searching and investigation, he found out that Trunks could travel back in time.

This was a time were the androids still exited. So, after knowing all that, Cell thought that it was the greatest opportunity of his life to absorbing Android 17 and 18.

However, Cell decided to seal the time machine and go back in time. When the day finally comes to seal the time machine, Cell surprises Trunks and kills him.

He then takes the time machine and goes back in the past to find Android 17 and 18 to complete its perfected form and goes back to Dragon Ball age 763.

This is one year before Future Trunks arrived for the first time in the past. So, here, he had to become an egg to fit in the time machine.

So, now he has to start his molting to get out of the time machine. Cell, at his egg, staged when underground to keep safe until he turns into his original state.

4 years later, in Dragon Ball age 767, Cell finally comes out of hiding and beginnings absorbing people to get stronger.

Then, after years of searching, he finally finds Android 17 and 18. He then absorbed Android 17 first and reaches a new form.

Simi Perfect Cell

Cell turned into his Simi Perfect from after he absorbed Android 17. He was a lot ugly but a lot stronger than he was before.

Nonetheless, thanks to Vegeta Cell finally absorbed Android 18 and achieved his perfect form which was too much for Vegeta to handle.

Now, after Cell tried to blow up the earth, comes super perfect Cell, however, Super Saiyan 2 Gohan was able to stop Cell in his tracks.

When Cell died in Dragon Ball age 767, he is 6 years old. However, the manga Cell told Piccolo that from the Dragon Ball age 767 it’s going to take 24 years for him to be completed in the present time.

That would only mean Cell would be born in the Dragon Ball age 791. instead of the Dragon Ballage 786.

However, since that was in the manga, we can ignore that and say that Cell in Dragon Ball Z when was in this perfect form was 6 years old.


So in Dragon Ball Z manga, Cell stated that it would take him 24 years to complete his base form. However, from the anime side of view we know know that Cell when he achieved his Perfect form and when up against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan he was just 6 years old.

So, now we know how old Cell was in the Dragon Ball Z series Episode when he fought against Super Saiyan 2 Gohan.
