They're so similar that at least one adaptation cut out the middleman and made the two of them into a CompositeCharacter.

[[Anime/DragonBallZSuperAndroid13 Android 13]] has some vague similarities to Cell, mostly in that he absorbs parts from his "brothers" to assume a more powerful form.

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Akira Toriyama planned on having Goku and Vegeta [[FusionDance fuse]] during the Buu Saga; however, at the time ''Anime/DragonBallZFusionReborn'' was about to come out and one of the film's big selling points was the first appearance of Gogeta, result of said fusion. Not wanting to step on Toei's toes, Toriyama created Vegetto, who's created when Goku and Vegeta use a completely different method of fusion. Interestingly, Vegetto seems to have become the "official" fusion, appearing in the manga and ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' while Gogeta remains in the dubious canon territory of ''[[NonSerialMovie Fusion Reborn]]'' and ''Anime/DragonBallGT'' (though of course, both appear in video games).
