The guys over at TeamFourStar have done it again. In the on-going #CellGames saga, the parody Youtube channel has introduced yet another challenger for Cell. The Dragon Ball Z villain recently finished facing off with the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh! leads like Yami and even Death Note’s Light made an abrupt appearance. However, the baddie’s new opponents are surely worthy of fighting against him. The ‘Dragon Ball Z Abridged’ series has finally made a crossover dream come true for anime fans.
Yes, that’s right! One-Punch Man was mashed-up with Dragon Ball for one seriously snarky parody. Both Saitama and Genos enter the latter’s multiverse and confront Cell who is still waiting on more challengers. And, as you may have guessed, Genos gets a bit riled up by the event.
In the video above, you can watch as Cell trades snippy quips with Saitama whilst Genos prepares for a battle. The cyborg even got fitted with new upgrades to ensure his first punch against Cell would be the last, but things don’t work out so neatly. Instead, the engineered villain sends Genos flying over a mountain, and Saitama seems pretty nonplussed about the ordeal.
Howeve, when it comes time for Saitama to fight Cell, and unexpected blip gets in the way. The hero even shows his serious face to the villain despite being called a Caliou wannabe, but everything comes to a grinding halt when Cell says they’ll battle tomorrow. That scheduling is a no-can-do for Saitama thanks to a local grocery store sale, so the bald hero flies off to take Genos back home whilst Cell stands off to the side looking more than a little put off.
Here’s what the folks at TeamFourStar had to say about the crossover parody: “Cell still has some waiting to do before the #CellGames begin, but a few uninvited guests see their way to his ring to give him a surprise. Worlds collide as Dragon Ball Z meets One Punch Man!”
Dragon Ball Super recently kicked off the ‘Universal Survival’ saga. You can check out the brief synopsis for it below:
