In chapter 98 of the Dragon Ball Super manga, Krillin used an old technique to deal with Cell Max, to avenge his revenge on Cell from Dragon Ball Z. Although Cell Max is only an enhanced version of the original Cell, the connection The relationship between them is obvious, especially considering Krillin’s previous humiliating defeats against Cell.
In Dragon Ball Z, Imperfect Cell first used the Taiyoken (Solar Flare, Vietnamese name: Thai Duong Ha San) technique on Krillin, in order to escape from him, Piccolo, and Trunks. Later, a semi-perfect Cell, thanks to the Taiyoken technique that successfully blinded Krillin again in the same way, successfully absorbed Android 18 and became Perfect Cell.
It can be said that thanks to using the Taiyoken technique, Cell had the opportunity to become stronger and more dangerous.
Although Krillin was able to neutralize Cell’s Taiyoken effect, he never got the chance to take revenge on Cell using his own signature technique in Dragon Ball Z.
However, in Dragon Ball Super’s Super Hero story, Krillin finally has the chance to take revenge on Cell. He uses Taiyoken to help the android Gamma 2 perform a special attack against Cell Max. Although this contribution did not directly lead to the destruction of Cell Max, it was effective and allowed Gamma 2 to cut off the villain’s left arm.
Krillin’s actions in Dragon Ball Super show that he has redeemed himself from the times Cell used the Taiyoken against him and the Z Fighters in Dragon Ball Z. Krillin also displays remarkable memory, mentioning reminds Piccolo of the Namekian technique associated with his name.
Some fans’ initial reaction to Cell Max was not good, due to him not resembling the original Cell’s personality, despite having a similar appearance. Perhaps Krillin’s revenge would have been more meaningful if Cell Max shared the original’s personality.
