And solar system busting statements are never brought up again or displayed after this. Even Goku and Vegeta couldn't stop Buu's huge planet buster that only destoryed earth and they were stronger than Cell at the time.Solar system busting may not be brought up, but universal destruction is in regards to buu.
Vegeta did stomp one of Buu's blasts that was going to destroy the earth.
The big one that destroyed the earth only destroyed the earth, it was concentrated in on the earth, Unless you want to argue buu is only as powerful as cell.
how Vegeta thought that he was the strongest in the universe during SS arc, when he knew for a fact that guys like Freeza and his minions were stronger.At the time Toriyama wanted to end Z after Vegeta, Freeza wasn't thought up yet.
Another example would be 17 saying that no one is strong enough to fight him, when his and 18's power are said to be equal or close(IIRC).In his data no one was supposed to be as strong as him.
16 was not in his data, nor were cell or fpssj, ssj2 ect.
Cell gives an exact statement.
Cell is the perfect bio-android, he should be able to calculate his own power, he knew just how many humans to absorb before he became >> Piccolo, he knew how much stronger he would get after each android was absorbed.
Cell at the time. Pretty much, an arrogant villian such as Cell, who is possibly the most overconfident and egotistical Dragon Ball character ever is the only one in the entire series to make that statement, which was out of nowhere, btw.No, statements like that are always made - Buu will destroy the universe, ect.
Cell's data showed him no one would be able to beat him, thus the overconfidence.
I don't see why cell would give an exact specific amount of destructive power he had if not to show how strong he is. If he would have said "Ill destroy everything" or something fine. However he specifically said not only the planet but entire solar system.
Also take into account the near death experience gohan had, and ssj2. Cell is near that level.
And yes, Goku made a jump in power on Namek due to a near death experience and ssj (have take those two things into account).
However, someone on another site had calculated how much power it would take to go from planet busting to star busting and IIRC you can have the power to destory the earth billions of times over and you still wouldn't have the power to destory the sun let alone an entire solar system or something like that.This assumes a linear relationship between powerlevel (ki) and destructive ability. Not so as this would mean that Roshi, Ten, and Yamucha, with ki's of 139, 180, and 125ish, would have been able to overpower Piccolo daimao, who's powerlevel is 200. Piccolo Daimao was much more than a match for all of them together, Roshi even explicitly says as much.
And there is not way to guage how much more powerful Cell is then say Freeza except for his statement. As I said, we know he is many many times stronger, how much so? Enough to destroy the solar system. There is no reason to ignore this.
I don't know what you mean "bait"
As for the Freiza bait, it's most likely that he destoryed Vegeta in his first form but it's unknown if it was instantly or not. Well, in the manga at least.
Freeza did destroy planet vegeta in his first form, as seen in the bardock special.
But anyway in the manga he says he usually destroys planets instantly
