Oolong is a shape shifting pig who had much more to do in the original Dragon Ball series than he does here. His status as someone who used to be more important is brought up from time to time.
- Adaptational Villainy: Downplayed, but there are hints that this version of Oolong never fully reformed. He let a forest fire break out because it looked cool (he may even have started it) and he secretly wishes to conquer the world with an army of fascist pig-men.
- Butt-Monkey: Nobody celebrates his birthday.
- Creepy Crossdresser: He stole Bulma's Sailor Moon outfit for Halloween.
- Demoted to Extra: He doesn't have much to do in Dragon Ball Z and he is quick to point this out.
- Eat the Dog: Goku calls him and Icarus "emergency food". Luckily for Oolong, Goku prefers dragon meat.
- I'm a Humanitarian:
- After eating a dish with pork in it, he claims that he's delicious after finding out it contains said pork.
- In History of Trunks, he prepares to go for a food run. When Puar comments that there's only pork rinds left, Oolong declares that "he's long since made peace with it."
- I Taste Delicious: After Chiaotzu lets it slip that the ramen he made has pork in it, Oolong says that he's delicious.
- Panty Thief: Carried over from the original series.
- Race Name Basis: Roshi always just calls him "Pig."
- Remember When You Blew Up a Sun?: Tries to invoke this when he reminds everyone about the time he saved the world from Pilaf but no one pays attention.
- Sadist: Enjoys watching horrific things such as forest fires and his friends dying in a one-sided brawl.
- Shout-Out: His dreams of creating a pig-regime as seen in The World's Strongest are a nod to Animal Farm.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Gives one to Krillin after learning that the stew he nearly ate had pork in it.
Puar is a shape shifting cat who has lived with Yamcha for a long time. He virtually has no lines in DBZA.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Puar is pretty much Yamcha's only friend and also his life-long housemate.
- The Quiet One: He rarely has a speaking role.
- Unusual Euphemism: "I make boom-boom!"
- Voluntary Shape Shifting: An alternate take of Yamcha's suicide reveals Puar shape shifted into the rope he used to hang himself.
The Ox-King is the father of Chi-Chi and grandfather to Gohan and Goten. His extreme wealth from his villainous days are drained by Goku since the latter never holds a real job.
- The Big Guy: He towers over Chi-Chi and the rest of the Z-Warriors but he doesn't have the strength to compete with any of the primary cast.
- Good Parents: He cares a lot about his daughter and makes sure they have everything covered financially.
- Impoverished Patrician: Given how much Saiyans eat, he's already noticed that his money can only support two at once. Chi-Chi's second pregnancy spells him going broke in the future.
- The Pollyanna: In the bad future he keeps trying to cheer up Chi-Chi, saying that maybe dinner would bring back her husband. This is Goku we're talking about, after all.
- The Quiet One: Like Puar, he rarely has an acting role, and is not that different from his canon counterpart.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: He bribes the college in donations so Gohan can have the education. Not that Gohan is dumb but being home-schooled and Goku's antics doesn't inspire confidence.
The wish-granting Eternal Dragon that is summoned when the 7 Dragon Balls of Earth are brought together. He's tired of how the main cast are the only ones who ever seem to call him, which leads to him being incredibly snarky.
- Adaptational Badass: Albeit informed. In canon, Oolong brings up the idea about using Shenron to deal with Vegeta and Nappa instead of using the wish to revive Goku, but Shenron says that the Saiyans are too powerful for him to affect. In the abridged series, Shenron himself suggests that the group use the wish to kill Vegeta and Nappa, indicating that he'd be powerful enough to deal with them. Although Shenron suggests using a loophole (sabotaging their space pods) to kill the two Saiyans, so maybe not.
- Adaptational Villainy: Later appearances of Shenron portray him as a bit of an asshole who is very rude to those who summon him and even sometimes tries to screw with the wish as shown in the Christmas Tree of Might movie. Given that the exact same people keep summoning him, mainly to wish people back to life, Shenron is most certainly tired of his role in the show. He's definitely pleased when someone else manages to gather the dragon balls in The World's Strongest Abridged. It is also shown that he is a servant of Mr. Popo and is waiting to destroy the entire world when he commands it.
- Benevolent Genie: When Roshi and the rest summon him to bring Goku back to life to fight the Saiyans, he suggests — even offers — that they make use of a loophole in the rules of the wishes in order to kill Vegeta and Nappa without any trouble. He also offers Kochin from World's Strongest the ability to melt the ice over his lair himself, that way if it ices over again Kochin will be able to take care of it. Kochin is too much of an obnoxious jerk to let Shenron explain this.
- Deadpan Snarker: He has a tendency to snark at either the people who summon him or at their wishes. As time goes on he tends to lose the deadpan part and is pretty open with his dislike for the main cast and their constant summoning of him. This is completely averted when Popo summons him.
- Immortality Inducer: If someone wishes for immortality he will become this. Ironically, someone actually wishing for immortality just amuses him because that situation usually ends badly, and he knows it.
- Jackass Genie: Later, he offers to restore the devastated forest that Oolong burned down, but becomes a Jackass Genie when he learns that not only are the same guys summoning him again, but they didn't care about the burned down forest and just want to get the perfect Christmas tree. Because of this, he summons Turles and co. to plant the Tree of Might. One can only be pushed so far, after all.
- Only Sane Man: He notes that, with the Dragon Balls, you have serious potential to stop a later threat, and even gave out suggestions for wishes. And when he discovered he was granting their wish again in the Christmas Special...
- Took a Level in Kindness: Krillin notes that after being brought back by Dende, Shenron seems far less belligerent than usual. KaiserNeko says it's because Dende has been sharing his stash of weed with him (though Word of God also notes that the weed-sharing thing was a last minute rewrite, when they realized that they didn't like the implications of their first version, which had Dende's Shenron as an entirely different character from the old).
- Wasteful Wishing: As Kochin and the heroes learn, this is one of the fastest ways to piss him off, and that the cast keeps doing it is what makes him into the Jackass Genie that he is.
Gregory is a squeaky-voiced flying cricket who is one of the only three surface dwellers on King Kai's planet. His only role in the main series was to act as a trainer for Goku and his role is diminished greatly in DBZA.
- Butt-Monkey: Gets beaten with a mallet a lot.
- Only Sane Man: Points how Earth could meet its end if Goku loses against Vegeta while everybody was taking on bets.
A monkey that lives with King Kai. He's incredibly eloquent, but nobody can understand him most of the time because he's an animal. He becomes Suddenly Voiced in the movies, however.
- Eloquent in My Native Tongue: He speaks very politely in his subtitles, but the other characters think he's just a dumb monkey.
- Suddenly Voiced: Talking Movie Bubbles in Lord Slug Abridged and Broly The Legendary Super Saiyan.
- The Unintelligible: Due to being a monkey, nobody can understand him.
An evil space pirate that's trapped in King Kai's planet.
- Affably Evil: Despite being on par with Cell in terms of power and villainy, he does try to keep King Kai from feeling lonely.
- Catchphrase: DBZA plays the fact that he is a pirate to the hilt.Bojack: Yarr!
- Out of Focus: In spite of speaking during a number of the scenes set on King Kai's planet, Bojack hasn't been heard from since Vegeta3986 left the series, and with the adaption of his movie being cancelled, it's unlikely he'll ever return.
- Phrase Catcher: King Kai would rather Bojack stay quiet.King Kai: Shut up, Bojack!
- Sealed Evil in a Can: Canonically, Bojack was sealed away inside a star in an unknown location, but here, he's explicitly inside King Kai's planet.
- Talk Like a Pirate: The canon Bojack was intended as a space pirate, and even had a space-faring pirate ship in a Cut Scene from his movie, but didn't actually have any particular accent. Perhaps because he's a voice-only character, however, the DBZA Bojack speaks with an exaggerated pirate accent. Yarr!
King Yemma serves as a bureaucratic minor deity that judges souls on their way to the afterlife. He knows that he is a minor player in everything that's going on but he will ham up his value wherever he can.
- Distracted by the Sexy: After the Ginyu Force is killed, they show up in the afterlife for sorting by King Yemma. He's distracted by Recoome.King Yemma: Next, strip. Next, strip. Next, strip... nice!
Recoome: Recoome thanks you!
- The Gods Must Be Lazy: He doesn't lift a finger for the people of Earth, stating that he can judge six billion souls faster than Kami can take a piss, and seems to be quite bored of his job. Of course, since he's the DBZ-verse equivalent of King Enma he's in no position to interfere in what goes on in the mortal world.
- Jerkass Gods: He isn't worried at all about the potential death of Earth, forces the dead to strip as he judges them for his own amusement, and he's sent people to Hell for skipping in line.
- A Million Is a Statistic: When told that the line outside his office will soon increase by six billion, he just says that he can judge six billion souls faster than Kami can take a piss, unaware of or unconcerned with the massive loss of life.
- Mundane Made Awesome: His desk. It's made of mahogany.
- King Yemma: And not just any mahogany! But mahogany from the planet of Malchior 7! Where the trees are 300 feet tall and breathe fire! From these trees this desk was forged 2,000 years ago, using ancient blood rituals of the ancient Malchior people! Not only does this make my desk nigh indestructible, but it can bend the fabric of the universe itself! Also, it's a very fine material. Very expensive.
- Overshadowed by Awesome: Acknowledges himself that when the Kai show up he'll become "horribly insignificant"
- Troll: Implied, since Vegeta was apparently told offscreen that he has to be nude in the afterlife.Vegeta: That lying red motherf*cker!
Korin inhabits a tower halfway up the pillar leading to Kame's Lookout. He doesn't have much of a purpose except to grow a senzu bean crop, provide exposition and eventually marry Yajirobe.
- Interspecies Romance: Hinted to be part of one with Yajirobe for several episodes, and it's confirmed outright in the credits gag of episode 40.
- Like an Old Married Couple: With Yajirobe. They eventually do get married, since Super Android 13 Abridged takes place before their wedding, and ``Broly`` begins during the wedding reception.
- Mr. Exposition: His entire dialogue in Episode 11 is to explain who Mr. Popo is.
- Straight Gay: He's in a relationship with Yajirobe, but doesn't have any stereotypical mannerisms.
- Talking Animal: Much to Roshi's surprise.Roshi: [referring to Mr. Popo] Who are you, anyway?
Korin: That's Mr. Popo. He lives up on the lookout with Kami.
Roshi: ...did that cat just talk?
Elder Mouri is the elder of a village on Namek that protects one of its seven Dragon Balls. He becomes the leader of the Nameks once he and the rest of the Namekians eat Guru.
- Ask a Stupid Question...: When he asks Freeza why he's there.Freeza: Well, I thought this would make a delightful summer home—what the f*ck do you think I'm here for?!
Mouri: Our trees?
Freeza: Zarbon, two or three more.
- Neck Snap: How Dodoria kills him. He immediately comments on it after coming back to life.
- Related in the Adaptation: Mouri is Dende's father instead of Guru, which considering Adaptation Personality Change is probably for the best.
- You Killed My Father: To Dodoria after she kills his son.
- You Kill It, You Bought It: He becomes the new elder by eating the most of Guru.
Porunga is the dragon summoned by the Namekian Dragon Balls. He doesn't have as sour of an outlook on life as the overworked Shenron does.
- Aliens Speaking English: Averted. While everyone else on Namek can speak English, he just speaks Namekian (Klingon). The Namekians do teach him to speak English later on, though.
- Benevolent Genie: Granted Dende six wishes to save time, since Dende said they were just simple resurrections and they'd call him back in four months anyway. He was a little peeved when Dende tacked on an entire planet, but rolled with it.
- Good Counterpart: To Shenron, although they act rather similar. Whereas Shenron is very jaded due to the same people taking up his time every year, Porunga only engages in some rather mild passive aggression while Shenron can be flat out spiteful.
- Fantastically Indifferent: He has a rather "Yeah, whatever," approach to this whole "giant wish-granting Space Dragon" thing.
- Humans Are Ugly: His opinion of Earthlings.
- Literal Genie: You must be specific in your wishes to Porunga. Dende (who apparently understands the Literal Genie trope) is translating the wishes and could rephrase them to remove any ambiguities, but is choosing not to do so because it's funnier (to both him and the audience) that way.
- Not Zilla: When he is summoned on Earth, passersby mistake him for Godzilla.
King Vegeta I
The father of Prince Vegeta and King of All Saiyans, Vegeta the First was long ago reduced to a mere puppet of Freeza's Empire. Despite this, he does his best to be a good ruler, often seeking advice from his trusted Grand Vizier... Nappa.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Among the Saiyans. With Freeza, not so much.
- Berserk Button: Getting a Mathematician's Answer from a smart aleck ticks him off, as shown when he decides to Shoot the Messenger informing him of Bardock's warning about Freeza and when he completely ignores the logical argument Paragus makes for sparing Broly.
- Catchphrase: Both times he's appeared, he's asked the question "My son, the planet or me?". Also a Phrase Catcher since it's always met with a Yes.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: On the receiving end of one.
- Greater-Scope Villain: He contributed to Prince Vegeta's evil upbringing and his actions against Paragus and Broly are what set off the events of Broly: The Legendary Super Saiyan Abridged.
- Horrible Judge of Character: His trusted Number Two was Nappa. That is all.
- And that's not counting the fact that he trusted Nappa when the latter said he could convince Freeza to not blow up planet Vegeta by just asking him. Bad decision.
- Parental Neglect: He's been described as having done a half-assed job of raising Vegeta. And of course, there's also Tarble, who was sent away in a pod to somewhere, where Vegeta blew it off trying to kill Santa.
- Shoot the Messenger: Although it's because he considered the messenger to be a smartass rather than because of bad news.
- Too Dumb to Live: He hired Nappa as Grand Vizier, which coupled with actually listening to his glaringly inept advice (while ignoring Bardock and Paragus' sensible advice because they were being mouthy) resulted in the death of his planet and nearly his entire race at Freeza's hands.
- Vocal Evolution: His voice between the Episode 25 and the Broly Abridged movie is quite different due to a 5 years span for the voice acting.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Vegeta indicates that he and daddy have some unresolved issues in Episode 10.
- Would Hurt a Child: He stabbed the infant Broly with a knife, but thankfully, he was too busy to bother getting the job done.
"Vegeta's Spirit Animal" / Orpheus
Orpheus is an original character to DBZA who tries to inspire Vegeta to little avail.
- All There in the Manual: His name is never mentioned in the video. You have to look at the video description to find out his name.
- Expy: His accent is reminiscent of Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.
- Familiar: He's Vegeta's spirit animal.
- Foreign Curse Word: He calls Freeza a "bumbaclot."*
- His Name Is...: He's about to tell Vegeta how to defeat Freeza when he gets eaten.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: Freeza eats him while he's talking to Vegeta.
- Talking Animal: He's a spirit animal, so he can talk.
- Unexplained Accent: He's Jamaican for some reason (Space-Jamaican, maybe?)
- Unexplained Recovery: He later pops out of Freeza's ear after he knocks some water out of his head, in one piece even though Freeza bit him in half while eating him.
Maron was a ditzy girl that Krillin picked up briefly after returning from Namek in the original series. Here she is a government agent investigating life insurance fraud committed by Krillin.
- Adaptational Intelligence: She is only Krillin's ditzy girlfriend in canon, but as mentioned below she's working for the government to investigate Krillin's Insurance Fraud.
- Brainless Beauty: Subverted, as it was an act to reveal Krillin's insurance fraud.
- Dirty Cop: Although she put on an act to investigate Krillin's fraud, she's still keeping the 500 grand in gifts Krillin gave her.
- If what she said wasn't part of the act. It's implied she moonlights as a hooker.
- Gold Digger: Double Subverted as it was an act to get Krillin to reveal his insurance fraud. However, she still took the 500 grand worth of gifts she received from Krillin.
- Innocently Insensitive: Subverted, she asks Korin and Yajirobe whether their hypothetical kids would be "little fat men or kitties" and Krillin immediately decides to leave with her, even though they weren't offended.Korin: Probably fat kitties...
- Male Gaze: Lampshaded in one scene.Krillin: No, Krillin! Stop focusing on that perfect, heart-shaped, pillow of an ass!
- Ms. Fanservice: Just like in the original. As Krillin notes, her breasts are as big as his head. Although unlike in the original, she may have been using this to her advantage.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She's actually a government agent investigating Krillin for insurance fraud.
- Pet the Dog: Sure, it's followed by a Kick the Dog moment when she keeps the 500 grand in gifts Krillin gave her, but she also prevents him from going to prison because of what they "do" to guys like him.note Krillin probably shouldn't worry about any of that, but he's wise enough to keep his mouth shut.
- Victoria's Secret Compartment: Where she kept her recorder. It was the one place Krillin couldn't reach.
Turtle lives with Master Roshi at Kame House. Years of hanging out with the Turtle Hermit has caused him to roll with most of what life has to offer and he loves his pot brownies.
- Covert Pervert: Immediately agrees to Krillin's offer of naked pictures of Maron if he acts as Krillin's wingman for her.
- Really 700 Years Old: Turtle celebrates his one thousandth birthday in Episode 31.
- Remember the New Guy?: He's celebrated as being a vital member of the team, despite having been absent since Episode 1.
- Safety in Indifference: Turtle's reaction to antagonists specifically targeting him is to point out that he's old enough to not give a f**k.
The Narrator comes out when some exposition is needed. Other than betting on fights that he knows the outcome of already he has no impact on the plot.
- And Starring: In the first season LittleKuriboh was given the "Special Guest" citation, before he later became an official member of Team Four Star.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: As a narrator who talks with characters, this is bound to happen.
- Deadpan Snarker: Sometimes his narrations get quite snarky, especially in the Episode of Bardock Abridged.
- Expy: LittleKuriboh gives him the exact same voice he uses for Yami Yugi, and pretty much has an identical personality. Yami Yugi himself would end up appearing in a Cell Vs. short.
- Interactive Narrator: Can talk directly to characters like King Kai.
- Lemony Narrator: At times he diverges from narration and talks about himself, such as when he won a bet on the fight between Goku and Vegeta.
The King of the Dragon Ball Z world, he got that role via a wish to the Dragon Balls in times previous even to the original Dragon Ball series. In the Cell saga, he is among the helpless bystanders as the Cell Games unfold, first seen in Episode 55. Oh, by the way, he's a Dog; a blue Cairn terrier, to be exact. Progressive, huh?
- Sliding Scale of Animal Communication: At least Level 5. He seems to communicate with barks, but his guards can understand him.
- Surrounded by Idiots: His opinion of the people of the world when they decide to have an orgy after Cell is killed, according to the English (Canada) Gag Sub.
Doctor Gero's Son
Dr. Gero's Son is a minor character who is given more importance in DBZA. He is enlisted with the Red Ribbon Army at a very unfortunate time...
- Adaptation Deviation: He was killed in an incident unrelated to Goku according to canon supplemental materials. In this series, Gero's son was stationed at the Red Ribbon Army's HQ, and Goku's assault on it was the event that killed him, which provided the impetus for Gero to start his revenge on the Z-Fighters.
- Arc Welding: His death and the destruction of Red Ribbon Headquarters were unrelated incidents in canon, but for the purposes of this series, are merged together to give Gero further motivation to wish death on Goku.
- Canon Immigrant: Also counts as All There in the Manual. He was only mentioned by Toriyama in interview. TFS took the concept and turn it into part of the plot.
- Morality Chain Beyond the Grave: Inverted. While it's implied that he's the loved one of Gero's Even Evil Has Loved Ones, it's also heavily implied that it's to avenge his death that Gero created his killer Androids the way he did.
- Posthumous Character: He's long dead by the start of the series and we only see him via a video he recorded.
- Punch-Clock Villain: He worked for the Red Ribbon Army after all. However, he seemed like a normal guy who wished he could spend more time with his dad and kept a bird pet in his bedroom.
- Related in the Adaptation: Dr. Flappe is his uncle, if he's not an Honorary Uncle.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He's on-screen for one or two minutes and is long dead by the start of the series. His death is also the reason why Gero built the Androids and Cell.
- Wham Episode: Rare In-Universe example. Bulma and Dr. Brief can't believe their eyes when they see drama behind Villain motive.
- What Measure Is a Mook?: Averted. This guy was one of many, many mooks killed by a young Goku decades ago when he invaded the Red Ribbon Army's base. Needless to say, it came back to bite the Z-Fighters in a way they couldn't have imagined.
Jimmy announces the action at the Cell Games and kisses butt to Mr. Satan professionally.
- Adaptational Heroism: In canon he goes along with Mr. Satan's lie even though he himself saw how powerful the other fighters were. Here he urged Mr. Satan to take credit specifically so it would calm down a rioting population that included a large number of Satan fans.
- Aluminum Christmas Trees: Some fans were surprised to learn that "Jimmy Firecracker" is actually his canon name and not something Team Four Star came up with.
- The Announcer: His entire character.
- Everyone Has Standards: He is absolutely horrified at the idea that Goku beats his wife.
- Jerkass: There was no reason for him to insult Larry's diabetic mom by comparing her to the explosively inflated Semi-Perfect Cell...or keep going after every one of his objections.
- Large Ham: That's an understatement.
- Malicious Slander: Tells the entire world that Goku is a misogynist and domestic abuser. Granted, Goku's phrasing when describing his relationship with Chi-Chi was rather unfortunate, and Jimmy doesn't know any better.
- Suicidal Overconfidence: He threatens to bitch-slap Perfect Cell.
- Worst News Judgement Ever: Blindly agrees with whatever inane theory Mr. Satan has.
Piza, Caroni & Piroshki
A couple of challengers in the Cell Games who have an unfortunately short life expectancy.
- Adapted Out: Originally Caroni and Piroshki were Mr. Satan's pupils. Here they're just random challengers.
- Death by Adaptation: They certainly didn't die in the original series, but here they buy it when Cell just blows up their helicopter. Of course this also means that they were brought Back from the Dead by the Z-Fighters' wish to revive everyone Cell killed.
- Incoming Ham: Fly in on a garish double-helicopter as they announce their participation.
- Walking Spoiler: They die in a single appearance. You can't really go without mentioning that.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: They're all wiped out within seconds.
Larry the Cameraman
The ZTV cameraman covering the Cell Games along with Jimmy Firecracker.
- Accidental Misnaming: Mr. Satan calls Larry "Jerry" at least once.
- Ascended Extra: In the original version, he was the least important character in the Cell Games Arc. While he doesn't have that much screen time in DBZ Abridged, the super quick deaths of Piza, Caroni & Piroshki lead to moments where he interacts with Mr. Satan and Jimmy Firecracker more than he did previously.
- Cassandra Truth: At one point guesses that Cell and Goku are fighting at such high speeds that the human eye couldn't see them. Mr. Satan blows him off because he wasn't a fighter, only to be proven right when Cell and Goku appear out of nowhere.
- Dude, Not Funny!: He was far from impressed when Jimmy started making fat jokes at his diabetic mother's expense.
- Dub Name Change: He's known as Lionel in the official English dub. In the original Japanese version, he was just the Cell Games cameraman.
- Satellite Character: While he interacts with (but doesnt speak to) 16 and Cell, Larry only appears when Jimmy and Mr. Satan do.
- Straight Man: While Mr. Satan and Jimmy overflow with supreme hammy-ness, Larry keeps a level head (for the most part).
- The Stoner: Once Goku saves the Earth from an exploding Cell, the dumbstruck Larry offers the equally astonished Satan and Jimmy some weed.
- Voiced by: MasakoX
- Adaptational Villainy: Possibly. The original Gokū Black was a Knight Templar and Well-Intentioned Extremist who at least thought his actions were "for justice", even if he was being a sadist about it. His brief appearances in the shorts, however, give us no reason to believe that he is motivated by anything other than being unrepentantly evil. See Card-Carrying Villain below.
- Card-Carrying Villain: He mocks the real Gokū as being a "goody goody two-shoes" and refers to him as the good version. It's pretty clear that Black knows he's the Evil Twin.
- The Comically Serious: Doesn't have a lot of comical moments by himself, if you except his rather silly insult to Goku (by quoting Army of Darkness, see below.) However, he becomes this when he's confused by Goku's usual antics.Black Goku: You're taking this too literally. Or... not literally enough...?
- Early-Bird Cameo: Team Four Star is not even done with the Cell saga, and can't adapt Dragon Ball Super out of copyright fear!
- Evil Brit: He talks with a slight British accent when quoting Romeo and Juliet during his Badass Boast.
- Evil Twin: Something he lampshades. Goku is not impressed.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He subjects Vegeta to this when they fight.
- Mukokuseki: He is not black. He is white... or Asian, or whatever racenote he and Goku are.
- Physical God: On top of god-ki allowing him his Super Mode, he's an alternate Zamasu after having stolen Goku's body.
- Real Men Wear Pink: His Super Saiyan Rosé form.
- Shout-Out: He mocks Goku by referring to him as "Goody goody two shoes" in homage of Army of Darkness.
- Soft-Spoken Sadist: All done by MasakoX, and somehow it works!
- Super Mode: Super Saiyan Rosé.
- Wicked Cultured: He quotes Romeo And Juliet in the most badass way possible. On top of that, his Super Saiyan form is named for a type of wine.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Same as Black.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: What Future Trunks does to him.
- It Is Pronounced Tro Pay: When Future Trunks addresses him by name, he pronounces it as "Zamas", most likely because the short was released before the English dub of Dragon Ball Super, so this may be a guess at how his name will be romanized in international releases.
- Physical God: Doubly so compared to Goku Black, as he's the result of two fusing.
- Silent Antagonist: Similar to Super Android 13, he only communicates with grunts and growls. Mostly to avoid fully adapting him, since Team Four Star can't adapt Super yet.
- Villainous Breakdown: He is in the middle of one.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Zamasu wasn't fully adapted to begin with, compared with Black. Justified, as Team Four Star will not adapt Dragon Ball Super for a LOOOOONG while, if ever, and Goku Black was easier to adapt thanks to him and Goku sharing the same voice actress in the original dub.
- Voiced by: prozd
- Devil's Advocate: Or Dabura's Advocate as Beerus calls it. When Beerus shows his disgust for the very idea of pineapple pizza, Whis says that to be fair, tomato, one of the ingredients of pizza, is a fruit like pineapple is.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Unlike Goku Black, who shared a voice actor with Goku, Whis has the benefit of having his own voice actor.
- The Mentor: Vegeta and Goku's latest trainer. Vegeta is training with him so he can be better for Goku, only for Vegeta to snap when he discovers Goku is paying Hit.
- Reset Button: Possesses the ability to rewind time a few minutes.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's extremely patient and understanding to everyone he's seen interacting with and never seems to get annoyed or irritated. Not even Goku's antics phase him as when Goku says the different toppings for pizza he wants, Pepperoni, Sausage and Ham, Whis understandingly puts his hand on Goku's shoulder and kindly explains, "Meat lovers. You want a meat lover's pizza." with a tone not unlike a teacher or parent talking to a young child.Goku: Nah, I like to keep the meats separate. I like to savor each animal.
Whis: Wait, but they all have pig-
- The Shrink: He is helping Goku and Vegeta in their, ehem, "fight counseling", due to Vegeta being jealous of Goku's relationship with Hit.
- Time Master: He can casually rewind time if Beerus has second thoughts about blowing up a planet.
- Voiced by: Tomamoto
- Berserk Button: He believes mixing specific kinds of foods to be absolutely disgusting. He absolutely hates pineapple pizza. The very concept of it is so bad that he believes that Zamasu was in the right for trying to destroy all mortals. When Goku wanted the same kind of burger as him, but with grilled pineapple, he destroys the Earth in anger, until he decides he wants a fajita and tells Whis to rewind time.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Beerus, aside from having his own voice actor, is mentioned in The Legendary Super Saiyan Abridged as possibly the entity responsible for destroying South Galaxy, only for South Kai to correct King Kai.South Kai: Oh, you know that mother's still asleep. This is my ex, man!
- Big Eater: Something he has in common with Goku, though they don't share the same tastes. Either way, it works in Earth's favor, since he'd rather keep it around and eat the foods it has to offer than leave it destroyed forever.
- Does Not Like Spam: He does not like pineapple on pizza. Or on burgers. Though this doesnt seem to apply to pinapple in general.
- The Hedonist: A self-proclaimed "epicurean" who considers his own palate more sophisticated than Goku's.
- Hijacking Cthulhu: One convention panel has Mr. Popo claim that hes his pet cat.
- Politically Incorrect Villain: When Goku professes love for Hawaiian-style pizza, he tells Goku to "excuse himself, and his entire race", and he states that he believes that Zamasu did nothing wrong. Justified, as he's talking about literally every single mortal in existence, as opposed to just the Saiyans or the Earthlings.
- Rage Breaking Point: As he makes a specific kind of hamburger as an order, Goku wants the same, but with grilled pineapple. He promptly destroys Earth. He then craves fajita and orders Whis to rewind time.
Shared by all opponents of Cell during the Cell Games
- Beat Them at Their Own Game: How Cell usually deals with his opponents. At one point, literally via Rules Lawyer.
- Crossover: All of Cell's opponents are from other series.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: All but one are insanely outclassed by late Dragon Ball era characters, much less Perfect Cell, so almost all of them end up on the receiving end.
- Yusuke, Kazuma, Yami, Sonic, and Ash Ketchum just surrender and leave before he even attacks them, after he demonstrates a bit of his power (or in Yugi's case, due to Cell being a Rules Lawyer).
- Genos, Mr. Satan, Ryu, Ken, Team Rocket, Knuckles, and Light Yagami each go down in one strike.
- Saitama, Kenshiro, and Deadpool avert this; Kenshiro blows up Cell's body at least twice and seemingly leaves before Cell actually attacks him. Deadpool and Cell are at a stalemate due to both of their regeneration abilities, and Deadpool eventually leaves after Wolverine calls him for help. For Saitama, he just decides he wants to fight Cell after the tournament, much to the latter's annoyance.
- Failure Is the Only Option: By virtue of a Foregone Conclusion, we know that Cell will survive every fight thrown at him, usually unscathed.
- Filler: Their main purpose is to entertain us in the interim between episode 56 and 57.
- No-Sell: None of their attacks do anything to Cell, except Kenshiro's plus Deadpool's adamantium swords (Saitama's punches might have worked, but we never do get to find out). It's implied that these only damaged Cell because he suppressed his power to humor his foes and was surprised by how potent they were, as he proceeds to break Deadpool's swords with his bare hands immediately after taking damage.

- Know When To Fold Them: When Yusuke realizes that Cell is way too powerful for either him or Kuwabara, he packs up and leaves
- Role Reprisal: Although Yu Yu Hakusho Abridged is on an indefinite hiatus, Lanipator reprises his old roles.
- Voiced by: Lanipator
- Implausible Fencing Powers: His Spirit Sword can cut dimensions. Unfortunately, it's apparently not good enough to scare Cell.
- Role Reprisal: Although Yu Yu Hakusho Abridged is on an indefinite hiatus, Lanipator reprises his old roles.
- Voiced by: LittleKuriboh
- Badass Boast: He talks about his past as mighty pharaoh and manages to impress Cell with his posturing.
- Duels Decide Everything: True to his series, Yami Yugi believes this and is legitimately surprised that the Cell Games is not a Duel Monsters tournament, though Cell agrees to play the card game with him anyway.
- Early-Bird Cameo: He first appeared at the end of Dragon Ball Kai Abridged: Episode 1, commenting on the number of views the video had.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: Is pretty much the same character from Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series.
- Role Reprisal: Voiced by none other than LittleKuriboh.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: He leaves in frustration as Cell keeps playing Rules Lawyer and tells him that his overpowered cards are tournament illegal and he can't use any of them.

- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Played for laughs. Ryu transforms into his evil persona, launches into the infamous Shun Goku Satsu, (or Raging Demon) and, judging by their body positioning, is defeated by Cell sidestepping and then tripping him. This might be a reference to the Udon Street Fighter comics, where Dan Hibiki, of all people, performed the Raging Demon only to trip over Sakura's backpack.
- Ice-Cream Koan: He speaks almost exclusively in these.
- Inner Thoughts, Outsider Puzzlement: When Ryu first starts wrestling with the Satsui no Hadou, the audience sees it the way Ryu perceives it: as him struggling with a dark, evil aura threatening to engulf him. After we switch perspective and see it as Cell does, that is to say, he sees a weird Cloudcuckoolander spastically twitching while mumbling nonsensically to himself. Cell is left almost totally bewildered by the whole experience.Ryu: The-the Dark Hadou! It's coming out! I... can't control it... it's going to overtake me!
Cell: [Staring at Ryu in confusion] ... have you tried praying it away?
- Logical Weakness: Going from above, the Raging Demon has a glaring problem with being balanced on one foot: the lack of balance.
- The Stoic: Until feeling the influence of the Satsui no Hadou, Ryu is extremely stoic and conveys no emotion at all.
- Superpowered Evil Side: He falls victim to the Satsui no Hadou and transforms into Evil Ryu. Still helpless against Cell.
- Voiced By: Brian Olvera
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Played up as this. He thinks he can stop Cell easily. The monster casually No Sells his attacks and knocks him airborne.
- Cloud Cuckoolanders Minder: Seems to have this role for Ryu.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: He's on the wrong end of one.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: Ken tried to be this, as he immediately started his fight against Cell with a super combo, only to have Cell effortlessly parry every blow.
- Oh, Crap!: Cell parrying his super leaves Ken in this state... for all of about 2 seconds before Cell strikes back.
- Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Ken insults Cell and arrogantly heaps on the Trash Talk, while Cell is his careless, affable, and polite self, in part because Cells knows Ken is no threat to him whatsoever.
- Twinkle In The Sky: A single punch from Cell reduces Ken to this.
- Voiced by: ShadyVox
- Always a Bigger Fish: Sonic comes in relying on his speed... and soon finds that Cell is significantly faster.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After finding that not only is Cell much faster than him but has stolen the Chaos Emeralds without Sonic noticing, Sonic has a second of pure panic, then decides to run for his life.
- Super Mode: Averted. Sonic tries to do this, but Cell already got the Chaos Emeralds before he can. Like Yusuke, he realizes he's totally outgunned and bails.
- Super Speed: Sonic is fast, but he soon finds out that Cell is much, much faster.
- Voiced By: Edward Bosco
- Good Old Fisticuffs: As usual, he specializes in punches. Unfortunately, he never even gets a chance to try to land a shot on Cell.
- Made of Iron: Survives a punch from Cell that was powerful enough to literally hammer him into the ground.
- Mighty Glacier: Knuckles is not nearly as fast as Sonic, and since Cell makes Sonic look slow...
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: When Sonic flees, he decides to do the same. But he can only glide.

- The Bad Guy Wins: Inverted, as it's the Hero Antagonist, not the Villain Protagonist, who wins this time. His episode ends with Cell in pain, and Kenshiro himself getting something to eat.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Cell is not impressed at all by his taciturn nature and "tickle" attack. That changes when the Hokuto Shinken actually works on him. Twice. Notably the only one of the characters to actually attack Cell in this series and not be defeated as Saitama called his fight off before they could even throw a punch at each other.
- Boring, but Practical: Setting aside for a moment the fantastic nature of Kenshiro's Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs and Supernatural Martial Arts, Kenshiro succeeds by using simple, quick physical strikes rather than charging up a showy, planet busting ki attack. Also by striking an arrogant foe while said foe is unprepared and in the middle of talking. It works out much better than the way the Z-fighters tend to banter and show off their power. Not to mention exploiting pressure points, on paper, isn't as cool as your typical Kamehame Hadoken.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He's a rather odd duck, all things considered. He's also the World's Best Warrior, actually harming Cell despite the fact that Cell should be strong enough to obliterate him with his pinky (since, as a human, he's practically cannon fodder at this point, power-scale wise).
- Crazy-Prepared: Hokuto Shinken is noted to have a large number of moves for unlikely and strangely specific situations... And it turns out that Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken is one of such moves, having at least a secondary explosion to counter enemies that regenerates from the first.
- Extreme Omnivore: He asks Cell if he's going to eat his own arm, wanting it himself. In fact, the only reason he showed up at all was to eat the bug parts of Cell.
- Heroic Comedic Sociopath: He mercilessly, and hilariously, considering who it happened to, caused Cell's upper half to explode, ''twice''.
- Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Played with. Their match starts out with Ken being somewhat rude by doing things like not replying to Cell or verbally cutting Cell off. (Not to mention talking about eating Cell.) By the end of the match Kenshiro has thoroughly irritated Cell and is now coming off as the more polite of the two.
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: He unleashes his famous Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken on Cell, and Cell regrets underestimating the master of Hokuto Shinken.
- The Stoic: Even more than Ryu. The only time he raises his voice is when he attacks and he isn't even surprised when Cell regenerates.
- Wake-Up Call Boss: Is the first of the people Cell challenges in this series that actually managed to do anything to him, as his Hokuto Shinken actually works on him.
- Weak, but Skilled: Kenshiro is just a human being compared to Perfect Cell, yet he manages to put him in his mercy by using Hokuto Shinken to program his pressure points to make his body explode. TWICE.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: At the end of his episode, he's still not defeated and Cell is exploding a second time. However, since Cell can regenerate, Kenshiro won't be able to win. We don't know what happens to him afterwards.
- World's Best Warrior: The fact that he's a human (which, by this point, is basically cannon fodder in the Dragon Ball universe, even the ki-using ones) who was able to bring Cell to his knees means he's the most skilled fighter on Earth.
- You Are Already Dead: His signature. He does it to Cell, and it actually works. While Cell regenerates, it definitely hurt and wiped Cell's smug grin off his face. He then does it again when Cell threatens him, but without actually touching him.
- Voiced By: @xJerry64x
- A God Am I: He gives this boast to Cell as he approaches him.
- Asshole Victim: Has the dubious honor of being the only person from the Cell Vs. series to explicitly die, and completely deserves it.
- Crippling Overspecialization: Light is entirely reliant on the Death Note, without it he's a human with no powers or special abilities. When the Death Note is unable to take down Cell, Light is completely helpless.
- Didn't Think This Through: Using the Death Note to kill Cell is a good idea. Not counting on the fact that Cell may have entirely different biology from a normal human was not. Trying to use the Death Note somewhere that would allow Cell to strike back at him, instead of doing it from the comfort of his own home, was downright idiotic.
- Evil vs. Evil: The first of Cell's opponents in the Cell Games who isn't a hero.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: This appears to be the Light Yagami from Death Note The Abridged Series 1 Kids Entertainment.
- No Body Left Behind: Notably, the first fighter Cell actually explicitly kills.
- Oh, Crap!: The last thing Light does before Cell vaporizes him.
- Smug Snake: Light is so certain of his superiority and his ability to kill Cell that he doesn't bother taking any precautions to protect himself. He soon comes to regret that arrogance.
- Suicidal Overconfidence: In retrospect, personally appearing before Cell to use the Death Note was a very prideful moment. One that Light ultimately regretted.
- Too Dumb to Live: His plan to kill Cell basically amounted to walking directly into the ring, writing Cell's name into the Death Note, and hoping Cell would drop dead without killing Light on the spot while waiting for the effects of the Death Note to kick in. (And lets remember, Cell is a Physical God who has indisputably proven himself willing to kill innocents in a heartbeat and with no warning.) When the Death Note was unable to kill Cell, the whole thing just serves to convince Cell to kill Light. Basically, Light deliberately put himself out in the open with absolutely no way to defend himself should anything go wrong, including if the temperamental mass murdering monster should decide to kill him on sight due to nothing more than a whim. And he promptly dies due to his stupidity.
- Manipulative Bastard: His smile after Light calls for him implies he knew the Death Note wouldn't kill Cell but didn't say anything.
- Mythology Gag: Willem Dafoe is Synchro-Vox-ed on his face, who is cast to play him in the 2017 live-action Death Note movie.
- The Voiceless: Zero lines spoken, but it's clear that he came just to see Light fail, and possibly die.
- The Unsmile: Even without the Synchro-Vox pushing it into the Uncanny Valley, it wouldn't have been pretty.
- Voiced By: Ganxingba
- Blood Knight: With an opponent as strong as Cell around, there was no way he would pass up a chance to meet him. In fact, he states that he wants to wait until the Cell Games happens so he can fight everyone that shows up.
- Boring, but Practical: Even more so than Kenshiro. When Cell asks what fancy move or power he intends to throw at him, Saitama admits he was just gonna punch him. The sheer nonchalance actually leaves Cell speechless for a second or two. Alas, we don't get to see how well that punch would have done.
- Creature of Habit: He passes up a chance to fight Cell the next day in favor of going to the groceries.
- "Shaggy Dog" Story: We all know Saitama isn't going to get his fight with Cell.
- Skewed Priorities: He was originally planning to fight Cell when the tournament starts but after realizing it is on the same day as a sale he wants to go to, decides to wait one more day before fighting. He also shrugs off Cell's Implied Death Threat that there won't be a Monday after he wins the tournament.
- Story-Breaker Power: More than likely why the writers made it so he could be Put on a Bus until after Gohan kills Cell. He's a Freeza or Cell-level Planet Buster even when he's not being serious about a fight (and, even when he gets serious, he reportedly still only uses a small percent of his full power), and TFS still needed to abridge the rest of the saga.
- Unskilled, but Strong: He never had martial arts training. He doesn't need it, since he's a Planet Buster at only a small percentage of his full power.
- World's Strongest Man: There's a reason why his series is called One Punch Man. He could probably level the planet with his pinky if he wanted to.
- Voiced By: TehExorcist
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Cell knocks him away with one blow like he does with Mr. Satan.
- Worf Effect: Cell easily beats him with no effort at all right after he said how he had been upgraded. Saitama lampshades how this is a trend for Genos, he easily loses only for Saitama to easily win.
- Adaptational Intelligence: Usually someone like Brock needs to act as an Exposition Fairy when it comes to typing. Ash actually uses logic to deduce that Cell is a Grass type, thinking his Kamehameha is Solar Beam (though, one look at him could also determine him as a Bug\Fighting type, but that's neither here nor there).
- The Beastmaster: Sics Squirtle and Charizard on Cell, to no effect.
- Book Dumb: Accused to be this by Cell, when Ash Ketchum claims he and his Pikachu has won more battles than he could count.Cell: Not a high number, I'm sure.
- Combat Pragmatist: He commands Squirtle to use Water Gun when he thinks Cell is distracted.
- Crippling Overspecialization: His complete focus on the mechanics of Pokemon battles leaves him unable to inflict any damage on Cell.
- Instant Awesome: Just Add Dragons!: When he calls out Charizard, Cell promptly says that Ash having a dragon is pretty metal. Subverted in that, as Brock mentions, Charizard (despite appearances) isn't a Dragon-Type.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Unlike all the other characters who came specifically to challenge Cell, Ash had no idea what was going on and was just passing through looking for a Pokemon Center.
- Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: He leaves after realizing that Cell is not a Pokemon.
- Deadpan Snarker: Even more so than her normal counterpart!
- Insistent Terminology: Is quick to correct Cell that Charizard is neither a Dragon nor a Steel type.
- Killed Mid-Sentence: It's uncertain if they really died, but Cell blasts them away while before they get to finish their monologue.
- That Came Out Wrong: James has this moment.James: We're here, we're queer, get used to it!
Jesse: Wrong time, wrong place, James.
- Uncertain Doom: Their hot air balloon was shot by Cell, and it is unknown if they survived. Then again, considering their Iron Butt Monkey status in canon...
- Voiced By: Xander Mobus
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Cell actually asks Deadpool if his shtick was being random.
- Beware the Silly Ones: He's Deadpool, this should go without saying. Despite how silly he is, he's the only one other than Kenshiro to actually hurt Cell and get away with it.
- Everyone Has Standards: Apparently period jokes are below him.
- Good Thing You Can Heal: No matter how many times Cell shoots him point blank in the head, Deadpool keeps healing and getting back up to annoy Cell even more.
- Hearing Voices: Deadpool's trademark voices in his head are present as the text boxes only Deadpool can see.
- Hired Guns: He was hired by someone to kill Cell, but can't tell you who it was. Just kidding, sure he can! It's Nappa.
- I Call It "Vera": He calls his swords... Regis and Kathie Lee.
- Made of Indestructium: He brags about how his adamantium/carbonadium swords are the sliceiest, diceiest, most indestructible blades around, and he demonstrates by cutting Cell's arms off with them. Unfortunately, Cell responding to that indignity by breaking the swords, or rather... just the tips.
- Medium Awareness: As per usual with Deadpool, he's aware of the fourth wall, but also seems to be aware of his time on Death Battle.
- His mere presence seems to enable Cell to break the fourth wall too, with Cell being aware that Deadpool has a movie and hopes his sequel bombs.
- Role Reprisal: Averted and lampshaded In-Universe. Taka voiced Deadpool on Death Battle, so they knew everyone expected Taka to reprise the role here, but they ended up recasting him with Xander Mobus. At the end of the video, Taka's Deadpool and Xander's Deadpool converse about the recasting.
- Mood Killer: Jean Grey going Phoenix again forces poor Deadpool to back off from killing Cell.
- Precision F-Strike: Let's off the f word just as Deadpool hangs up on him.
