The key was in an event from the original Dragon Ball series.
Krillin hitting Cell from behind

In the Dragon Ball manga and anime, it has been seen that Toriyama has had no qualms about humiliating Krillin over and over again, while the one who, according to some, is the strongest human has been mockery along with Yamcha for years, which has caused that although he does not see his popularity decline, the truth is that it has caused some discomfort due to the treatment he is receiving one of the most beloved characters of the entire franchise.
Now, it seems that this could go further, since, as has been recently reported, some have realized that Krillin could have defeated Cell in the easiest way if he had been more alert, thereby giving rise to the chaos generated by this villain in his respective arc could have been avoided if Krillin had remembered what happened in a battle of the first series.
Cell used the Taiyoken to escape on several occasions from the Z Fighters.
It should be noted that Cell is a character created from the cells of other warriors.giving way with it to being able to use skills such as the Kame Hame Ha and, as is the case, the Taiyoken, with which he is able to momentarily blind your enemiesthis being a technique that is usually used to flee or allow an ally to finish charging an attack without bothering the rivals.
Under this same premise, in its first phase Cell used this technique to escape from Piccolo, Future Trunks and Krillin, who at that time together were strong enough to easily defeat the villain. However, Cell managed to flee, which caused him to begin his time of terror by absorbing humans so that he managed to become strong enough to defeat Piccolo, absorb No. 17 and achieve thus in its semi-perfect form.
The problem here is when Cell uses the Taiyoken again with the aim of blinding Krillin, Future Trunks and Vegeta, thus managing to absorb Nº18 and reaching his perfect form, which already made him a a rival that no one could fight at that time. And this is where Krillin’s big mistake is, since Goku was able to avoid this technique in the past in the presence of his best friend.
A pair of sunglasses would have been enough to stop Cell
Goku and Krillin have forged a great friendship for life (/cTieneon)
This is because in the past, specifically in chapter 130 of the original Dragon Ball series, we could see how Krillin watched as Goku avoided Ten Shin Ham’s Taiyokenwhereas the technique that Goku used was simply noticing that the first time his rival used it, the only one who was not affected was the announcer of the Martial Arts Tournament because he was wearing sunglasses, so he only he had to use one the second time Ten Shin Ham used this technique in order not to be affected.
It is for all this that although the first time could have caught them by surprise, it does not justify that Krillin could have gone preparedsince, in fact, if the second time they had prevented Cell from absorbing No. 18, Goku’s sacrifice in the final battle would not have been necessary.
Be that as it may, it will be necessary to see if the new arc of the manga, which has brought Cell back to the present day and which has once again canonized Broly, offers us any change in Krillin’s attitude facing the future enemy that the Z Fighters will have to face.
