Go To

Cell: You know, if you want my personal opinion, "Kikoho" is a pretty sad choice of last words. But to be fair, it's far from the worst decision you've made today!
Tien: Kiko-f*ck yourself…!
Cell: Aw, see? That's the spirit!

Saiyan Saga
  • "DAMMIT I VOTED FOR BUSH!" the Farmer
  • "Oh, a smartass huh? I don't appreciate smartasses. Prepare yourself for my signature attack! DOUBLE SUN—" Raditz in first voice right before Vegeta3986 argues with Lanipator over the attack name and obtains the mic.
  • "I sort of have a hole in my esophagus…" Son Goku. He got better
  • "Welcome to Oz, bitch! That's right; you, with the spiky hair! You're going to be my bitch! I'm going to sell you for a cigarette, but not before I violate you, because YOU'RE MY BI— Arlian prisoner; presumably, he was killed when Vegeta blasted himself and Nappa out of prison. Unfortunately, Nappa wouldn't let him hear the end of the incident.
  • "I love that so— AAUGHWRRGH!" King Moai, getting "Rocked Like a Hurricane"

    • "Right... Right behind you, Chiaotzu." Tien's last thoughts.
  • "Why… didn't… you… DOOOOOOOOODGE?! (bleh)" Piccolo. He got better.
  • "But… I… well then… Goodbye, my friend!" Kami. He gets better, though this is an interesting case due to the fact that it's the last time we hear Vegeta3986's voice for the character.
  • "Aw, and I totally killed that guy. Oh well, at least we still had fun getting here, right, Vegeta? Vegeta? Remember the bug planet? Vegeta? Vegeta? Vegeta? Vegeta? Vegeta? Vegeta? VegetAAAAAAAAAAAAHH…!!!!" Nappa, after Vegeta discovered that Piccolo's death means the Dragon Balls don't work. He got better due to the Exact Words to revive everyone killed by Freeza and his men.
  • "Yarrgh, I bet 50 gold doubloons on the short one." Bojack, since the Abridged version of DBZ Movie 9 has been canceled
Namek/Freeza SagaGarlic Jr. Saga

I am Garlic Jr., returned from the wretched abyss known as the Dead Zone, and I have come for what's rightfully mine— what's going on? I don't remember releasing the Black Water Mist just ye— OH GOD NO NO GET IT OFF ME!!!" Garlic Jr., before Mr. Popo sends him and the Spice Boys to the fuck box.
Android/Cell Saga
  • "YES, SIR!" several Freeza soldiers
  • "He just turned an entire squad into a pile of limbs!" Straw; doesn't immediately die, but these are his last words onscreen before Trunks makes short work of the rest of the soldiers.
  • "…well, that ain't right." Chayote
  • "Lord Freeza… the f*ck?" the one soldier Trunks didn't kill was finished off by Freeza. Speaking of which…
  • "If you're trying to be clever, you're sorely lacki— huh? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA—" Mecha Freeza; the scream is interrupted by a literal Villainous BSoD. Time will tell when he gets better.

  • "Jerry, you ALWAYS think it's terrorism. You think your house gettin' TP'd is terrorism!" Tom
  • "Whoa, whoa, whoa, Marcel Marceau! If that's what you're lookin' for… It's gonna be thirty dollars an hour. Fifty if you want it weird." Jerry

  • "Hmmm. I didn't think so…" Kami, in response to Piccolo not falling for the "lower" gag before they fuse. Like Nail, he now lives in Piccolo's mind.

  • "The East City Westmen!" Bucko; he got better
    • "HOO HA!" the rest of the team; they also got better
  • "But today, we'll make an exception for you, killer!" The Wombat after Cell requested "Video Killed the Radio Star", which isn't even in the top 20. He got better
  • "Please don't kill me!" caller from The Stinger of episode 44; he got better
  • "TOO LATE!!!!!" Imperfect Cell's last words before becoming Semi-Perfect. While he's still alive, this is the last appearance of his Imperfect Form.
  • "Oh god, this is totally disgusting! This isn't how it's supposed to work, I'm not supposed to die like this, I'm too cool! Someone pull off his tail! I'm too cool for this! I'm too cool—" Android/Cyborg 17, getting absorbed by Cell. He died later, when Cell self-destructed, then got better.
  • "Bro, if you love something, you have got to set it free!" Different Tom; he got better
  • "Do you think it's inadequacies in the bedroom?" Sally; she got better (BTW: her comment is specifically the reason why Different Tom, Harry, and Richard also died.)
  • "I think I'm pretty involved!" Harry; he got better
  • "Can we please go back to talking about this!?" Richard; he got better
  • "Look after the little guy…" Android/Cyborg 18, before being absorbed by Cell. She technically doesn't die, but she's out of commission until he pukes her out.note

  • "Oh. Well, thank you for your time, Perfect Cell." The unfortunate journalist interviewing Cell, killed for not calling him Mr. Perfect Cell. He got better
  • "Coming at you live from the Cell Games Arena, it's Piiza,"
  • "Good day to you, my faithful subjects! It has taken over a thousand years, but we have finally repopulated our new Arlia! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I shall now make love to my HOT. BUG. WIFE. Who is also my SISTEEER! INSECTXUAL!" King Moai XXVII, 1,000 years after Cell's stray Kamehameha leaves the Earth. The rest of his sounds are obscene bug noises.
  • "Cell was right. You think you're better than everyone else. But there you stand, the good man doing nothing. And while evil triumphs, and your rigid pacifism crumbles into bloodstained dust, the only victory afforded to you is that you stuck true to your guns. You were a coward. To your last whimper. Of fear and love, I fear not that I will die, but that all I have come to love, the birds, and the things that are not birds, will perish with me. So please… Gohan… Stop holding back. And hey. If we do make it out of this, please pick up my head and beat your father to death with—" Android 16. Though the end of Episode 60 demonstrates he did indeed have a soul, he chose not to be revived.
  • "Daaaaaaaad!" One of the Cell Juniors. Their father's no helicopter parent.
  • "HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE CELL GAMES; BYE, EVERYBODY! GOOOO F*CK YOURSELVES!" Cell, preparing for his Taking You with Me Earth-Shattering Kaboom. He gets better thanks to one cell surviving.
  • "Goku. For the sake of your friends, your family, your planet, you gave yourself. I'll see you soon, my friend." King Kai, final thoughts before Goku teleports in with the exploding Cell. He didn't have enough time to say anything else before Cell blew up. And no thanks to Yamcha, he did not get better. Not that it matters, since he lives in Other World anyway.
  • "I'm proud of you, Gohan. Bye, son." Son Goku's last words on Earth before dying the second time.
    • "Hey, King Kai, what should I do with Cell?" Goku's actual last words on King Kai's planet.
  • "Help... Help...! Someone... help... me... I... Plea— Bluh-hagh!!" Future Trunks. He gets better.
  • OH, SHIT! Cell's final spoken words, after Vegeta's last-ditch attack gives Gohan an opportunity to permanently destroy every last cell with his Kamehameha.
  • "This is Alpha Leader Wombat, comin' at ya live from Parsley City. We've got our special guests, the Cyborgs, and they are TEARING! IT! UP! I've already lost five men, I'm running out of ammo, and I'm holed up in the bank! Looks like this will be ALW's last report. Watch out, TJ! I'm comin' home, brother!" Maybe Future Wombat, but we don't know if he's actually killed before Trunks kills 17 and 18.
  • "If you're reading this—" The old man in the car, who was saved in the nick of time in the original series, but eats a bullet before Trunks arrives here. Trunks really could've microwaved that tea.
  • "Wait..." Future 18
  • "Go... ku Jr.?" Future 17, after Trunks asks for his master's name. It was the wrong answer.
  • "♪And noooooow, the end is neaaaaaar!♫" "Oh god damn it shit!" Future Cell. He didn't do enough to even get through the first verse of the song.
