*** The only language where Cell doesn't scream "OH SHIT!" is Italian, as the censors wouldn't let that fly... So instead they had him ''too surpised by its sheer power for even that''.



** His drawn out humiliation of Imperfect Cell is one of Vegeta's best moments. He effortlessly kicks Cell around like a ragdoll while Cell struggles to get even a single hit in and delivering one verbal put-down after another, making him feel inadequate in both strength and character. Then he tops it off by acknowledging Trunks (who was there watching the beatdown from the sidelines) as his equal in power - humiliating Cell even further, letting him know that even ''if'' he managed to get in a lucky hit and take Vegeta out, Trunks would just immediately step in and finish him off. Vegeta doesn't just break your body, he breaks your spirit too.

*** When Vegeta let Cell achieve his perfect body, Trunks and Krillin chastised him as foolish and risking everything for the sake of a good fight. The Final Flash demonstrated he ''knew'' what he was doing: he had an attack for exactly that situation.

* Vegeta's second fight with Zarbon has a subtle one: as soon as he transforms, Zarbon starts getting the upper hand because he's just more powerful... Then Vegeta, realizing it, [[AHandfulForAnEye throws sands in his eyes]], blasts Zarbon's lower back and hits him with a rabbit punch, wounding him enough to regain the advantage.

** One that goes sadly overlooked is Tien's glorious moment fighting Cyborg Tao in the 23rd Martial Arts Tournament. Tao wants Tien dead for betraying the Crane School and aiding the Turtle School and so keeps fighting him even after being disqualified for attacking him with a knife, charging up what he calls the "Super Dodon Ray" which he claims cannot be escaped. Tien's reaction? Shout "I'm not afraid!" and refuse to move even as the enormous beam closes in on him before ''blocking the blast with a kiai''. When the dust clears, Tien is completely unharmed and quickly levels the shocked Tao with one fierce punch to the gut.

** When Semi-Perfect Cell is about to absorb her, 18, knowing she wouldn't have the time to self-destruct, [[DoNotGoGently hits him with everything she's got]]... And actually manages to ''move him, '''twice'''''. Didn't hurt him much, but considering that the far stronger 16 couldn't do as much there's a reason even Cell was surprised by her first shot.

*** When Cell managed to come for a second attempt, 18 was blinded by the Tayoken that had allowed him to escape Trunks, couldn't feel ''ki'' yet... [[DefiantToTheEnd And still managed to launch one last series of punches, still trying to harm him even after being sucked in by the tail]].

** His combat performance is actually far better than one would expect from all his moments grabbing the IdiotBall: first he chooses a terrain where he and 19 can hide in case of necessity (that he didn't expect to need), as they have no ''ki'' to be sensed while they can detect the Z Fighters'; then, after 19's defeat he's on the run from Vegeta, who gets angry and tries to just blow up the whole place, only for Gero to pop out, ''[[EnergyAbsorption absorb his attack]]'' and hide again, using the energy to boost his power and have a better chance to get back to his lab and [[GodzillaThreshold release 17 and 18]]; as he knows just how risky is to unleash 17 and 18, he decides to try and drain everyone to become stronger than Vegeta, and gets the drop on ''Piccolo'', and would have succeeded picking off everyone one by one had it not been for Piccolo's telepathy (that he didn't know of).

* When he fights Android 19, Goku is in the middle of the onset of the heart virus disease, thus terribly weakened, tired and in increasing pain. He's ''still'' dishing out a CurbStompBattle, and 19 doesn't get the upper hand until Goku, realizing he's weakening faster than expected, tries to finish him off with a Kamehameha, [[EnergyAbsorption unwittingly empowering him]].

** Also, his [[GenreSavvy Genre Savvyness]]: he didn't expect Goku to grow much stronger than he was after Vegeta's defeat, and he ''still'' made [[NoKillLikeOverkill Androids capable of annihilating Frieza]], [[CrazyPrepared just in case]].
