With Piccolo gone, Android 17 has no choice but to fight Cell on his own or so it seems, that is until Android 16 lauches a silent complaint by pummeling Cell with a fury of fisticuffs. As the battle rages on, it is easily noticable that Android 16 is just as strong as Cell. Knowing the fight is at a stalemate Cell uses a desperate attempt to absorb Android 16 into his being, but due to the way 16 was built Cell is unable to complete the Androids demise. Android 16 proceeds to rip off Cell tail, ensuring that the greedy monster could never absorb anyone ever again, but Cell has Piccolo’s regenerative ability, and instantly regrows his deadly tail. Can the silent giant Android 16 defeat Cell, and if not who can, perhaps this fight will buy Vegeta and Trunks the precious time they need to complete their training in the hyperbolic time chamber.
