DG Cells were a nanotechnological plague created by the Dark Gundam, capable of infecting any technological device or organic being. Any human infected becomes a thrall of the Dark Gundam and its pilot, though they also gain significantly improved strength and reflexes. Any technology infected by the DG Cells is reshaped in the Dark Gundam's image, often in a menacing and powerful form. The DG Cells also enable those infected to heal at a phenomenal rate, whether organic or mechanical. A humanoid being will eventually become a humanoid mass of DG Cells, resembling a skeletal zombie. The only means of removing an infection of DG Cells is to remove the Cells directly, or the unknown energy-based method used by the Shuffle Alliance- no known specific cure exists.
