Cell BnB Combos & Basics Guide | DRAGON BALL FIGHTERZ SEASON 3

This guide will provide you with the BnB combos and basics of Cell in Dragon Ball Fighter Season 3.5.

Cell’s 5L is more on the stubby side and mostly outshined by his low 2L. 5LL goes half screen, making it reflect proof.

Additionally, you can hold back during 5LL to half the distance traveled; you can use it to bait the reflection. 5M is huge and a great stagger because it can be done twice (even on whiff), creating a frame trap. 2M slides far but is unsafe; it becomes safe depending on how late it hits.

j2M is a tracking cross-up overhead, and it is mainly just a combo filler for Vanish combos. 5H is marginally larger than 5M but can be held for a lot more pushback. 6H is a third low that is safe on the block; it is a valuable stagger and combo filler.

2H has a terrible hitbox, but it still works as an anti-air. Most of the time

WA 12H launches horizontally with some forward momentum but is normal otherwise. You can chain 5S five times. And it is angled down with some spread, resulting in unreliable hits at a screen’s distance, always leaving a gap. 

jS sends explosions across the floor. Slow and considered simple Ki Blasts, so only used in combos. 

2S is a plus on block, it will beat mashing, but it’s easily countered since ki Blast properties allow it to be reflected or superdashed. It also likes to overshoot many characters at close range, so you need to be careful.

KELL, as for aerial buttons, only jM stands out as a great cross-up tool. 

Rolling Crush (236X, Air OK)

The last hit is an overhead and gives sliding knockdowns. The Light and Medium versions are angled diagonally down in the air, and the Light version is pretty niche. You can only use it in clashes and very specific combos due to its steeper angle.

The Medium and Heavy version goes about half screen and gives a small ground bounce, but you can adjust the distance by holding 4(back) or 6 (forward).

Heavy can additionally cross the enemy upon block using 4 and 6 and steal the corner. You don’t have to block the other way due to cross-up protection.

Perfect Attack (214X, Air OK) 

This one is the Cell’s most defining move. It’s his main anti-air tool and an unscaled starter, enabling his great ToD potential. Three hits on a grounded hit, two on-air hits and ground block, and one on-air block. The Light version keeps sides, and it is used for mid-screen ToDs since it doesn’t consume your smash. The Heavy version is a frame one anti-air, has a larger hitbox, and follows up in a hug. Instead of the second follow-up on the block, it will teleport behind and above the enemy, setting up a 50/50.

Kamehameha (236S, Air OK) 

It is just a standard beam that can be angled up, and the Air version is always angled down. A slow command grab requires a minimum distance of about half a screen, but it will never overshoot the corner. 

A Assist

It angled down beam assist. It is the best assist choice most of the time.

B Assist

Lariat-type assist has a decent blockstun but short range. It is a standard combo tool. 

C Assist 

Pretty bad C-Assist that only tracks horizontally. It has anti-air properties, but they come out so slow, you can’t use it on the reaction. C Assist Blockstun is also terrible since it only performs the first strike. 


Basic Safe Gapless Blockstring 

It’s not only safe but also allows for a backdash afterward.

2L5LL> 5M2M > 6H5H > 236M 


You can use 2L to stagger and reset your pressure.

5L2L > 5LL > 5M2M > 6H5H > 236M 

Even if you get reflected, SLL immediately puts you back in their face, forcing a double reflect to get Cell off you. It is where you shorten the distance on SLL to bait reflections.

2LL > 5LL[4] > 5UL> … 

Other good stagger points are 5M, 4M, and H. Each of them has a response to either mashing or reflect. 

2L5LL > 5M> 66 2450L > 5M4M> 66 2L5UL> 5MZM > 6H > 66 2L5LL> 5M2M> 6H> 5H > 236M 

Use 4M after SM or slightly delay 5H to discourage players from taking their turn by creating frame traps.

2L5LL > 5M2M >6H> (dl) 5H >…

And once they are too scared to press anything, cross them up with your godly jM.

2L5LL> 96 (dl) jM> (land) 5M2M > (dl) 6H5H> …. 


You can break the cross-up protection by getting an assist with low blockstun (24 or less) to hit between the first and second hit of the 214L/M. It works best with assists with lots of visual noise.

2L5LL > 5M2M > 6H5H > A1 > 214M 

Another option is a 50/50 using 214 and an assist with 30f of blockstun or more. If done correctly, both jL and 2L should hit on about the same frame.

2L54L> 5M2M > 6H214H > A1 > (dl) 66 L 2L5UL> 5M2M 6H214H > A1 > (land) 2L

Other tips 

In the corner, the pushback of a charged five pushes you range for a pretty safe command grab and into a position where you can steal your turn back using 2.
