From one of the first times the Android known as Cell was seen, EX 1F Cell YEL comes to the game in the form of a Support Fighter who oddly enough--assists the same Androids he needed to absorb in order to reach his perfect form.
Main Ability Heal
EX 1F Cell YEL’s Main Ability heals Android Fighters by a whopping 30% and cures his own Abnormal Conditions.
On top of the huge heal, what makes this Main Ability nice is the fact that it only requires 5 timer counts to elapse before it can be used, allowing for any early mistakes to be quickly rectified.
Good Equip Options
Despite not being geared towards one specific stat, this Fighter has a wealth of Equipment options at his disposal and can be optimized any way the Player desires.
Unusable in PVP
Once upon a time, this Fighter was a moderately decent option to bring into PVP to give Androids a solid heal in a tough situation.
However, due to his age and power creep in general, it’s highly recommended to leave him where he belongs: on the bench.
Awful Extra Move
Inflicting the status of Flash with no other Debuffs for a cost of 30 Ki is just flat-out bad. It’s especially awful considering it is a short-ranged Attack.
His Z-Ability Boosts Android max base Health, making him an essential bench Fighter for the Team as Androids tend to be geared towards Defensive capabilities.
This Equip remains one of the best in the game and can fit on almost any Yellow Fighter. +20% Strike Attack and +10% Ki Recovery Speed are obviously great, but the Defense against Saiyans is arguably just as powerful.
Can be farmed to 7 stars and has Team healing for the Android Tag.
Has good all Damage Buffs, but they are either too specialized or hard to apply.
EX 1st Form Cell YEL has great Synergy with his fellow Androids, but the restrictions of his Abilities really hurt his viability overall: his team-heal only affects Androids, his all Damage Buff only works against Piccolo variants, etc.
Either way: the popularity of the Android Tag, his great Z-Ability, and the fact that he is farmable to 7 stars are what make him a solid Fighter.
