Introduction

The plot of the Androids Saga is closely tied to that of Dragon Ball, the anime series that preceded Dragon Ball Z. A small organization known as the Red Ribbon Army sought to obtain the DragonBalls. The Dragonballs being the magical orbs used to summon the dragon Shenron, who will grant his summoner one wish. In Dragon Ball the main hero of the series Goku was still a child and had embarked upon a quest to find the Dragonballs himself. This led to conflict between the Red Ribbon Army and Goku. As part of their plan to collect the Dragonballs the Red Ribbon Army employed Doctor Gero as their head scientist. Doctor Gero then proceeded to construct a series of powerful Androids. Although in the original Dragon Ball Anime Doctor Flappe was presented as the Androids creator. He is considered non-cannon as the manga did not indicate who created the Androids. Goku was eventually forced to destroy the Red Ribbon organization and the Androids in order to protect the Dragonballs causing Doctor Gero to seek revenge upon Goku. Dragon Ball ) is a Japanese manga by Akira Toriyama serialized in the weekly anthology magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1984 to 1995, and originally collected into 42 individual books called tankōbon. ...

Doctor Gero goes unmentioned in Dragon Ball Z until the Trunks Saga in which the titular character Trunks warns Goku that Doctor Gero survived the attacks to Red Ribbon when Goku was a child and has created a new set of Androids intent upon destroying the Earth. Trunks also reveals that Goku will die from an uncurable heart disease before he has the chance to confront the Androids. Trunks then presents Goku with medicine from the future that will cure his otherwise fatal disease. He also mentions that Vegeta and Bulma were his parents, which shocks Goku and Piccolo is the only one that heard it. He decides to keep it a secret. After delivering his doomsday warnings, Trunks returns to his own future in a time-machine. Trunks Saga is the name of the sixth saga of the Anime Dragon Ball Z, featuring Freezas arrival on Earth, his death by the hands of Trunks, and Trunks warning about the Androids. ... Trunks can mean: Trunks are a type of male swimwear and underwear. ...


Battle with Androids #19 and #20

The Z fighters go to the city where Trunks told them the Androids would appear. Being a few minutes later than Trunks had said and a different location, the Z Warriors were suspicious. They went down into the city to find them.


Yamcha made his way to one of the lower cities where he encountered the Androids. The Androids resembled that of a person, so they went undetected by Yamcha. Android 20 made himself clear as an Android by grabbing Yamcha by the mouth, and draining the majority of his energy. There are two of them, Android #19 and #20. As Yamcha struggled, Android 20 punched through his chest, gravely wounding him.


Goku and the others, whom Yamcha yelled for before being subdued, arrived shortly after, finding the Android and Yamcha, who laid dying. Goku asked Kururin to evacuate Yamcha and get him a Senzu bean before it was too late. They are eager to fight, however, Goku tells them that there are too many innocent people around. The Androids rationalize the problem by using eye lasers to destroy every living thing within a set radius. This infuriates Goku, who then throws a punch at the gray-haired Android 20. Android 20 seemed unaffected by the impact. Goku and the others convince the Androids to come and lead the Androids away from the city, to fight without harming anymore innocent bystanders. Yamcha, who was saved in time, leads Kuririn and Bulma to follow the others to the new battlefield.


They come to a deserted, rocky area and Goku offers to go first, but he starts at a loss. Goku is already experiencing some mild effects from his heart disease, but he fights Android 19 regardless. At first Goku wanted to fight Android 19 at his normal state so that he didn't have to agitate his already deteriorating condition. However, after hearing Android 20's comments on how Goku's strength was measured and his power level growth was calculated, it became apparent that Goku had to turn into a Super Saiyan, which is one of Goku's transformations Android 20 was unaware of since he didn't observe the battles in Namek. Android 20 claims it was just a "Minor Setback" but that seems to be proven wrong when Goku engages in battle with Android 19, making Androids 19 unable to defend himself. Punch after punch, and kick after kick, Goku seemed to have the upper hand, but he was holding back due to his condition. Androids 20 soon realized that if #19 kept receiving such a beating, he would run out of energy and die.


The fight goes on for a while until the Z fighters notice that Goku was tiring out faster than he should. It was then they realized that it was his heart condition. Androids 19 saw the advantage and took it, nearly draining Goku dead. Goku was nearly down for the count due to his illness until Vegeta interfered by blindsiding Androids 19. Then eventually introducing himself and scolded Goku for fighting in with a handicap, and kicked him towards Piccolo. The Z Warriors decide that Yamcha should take Goku home, while Vegeta takes over the fight.


Vegeta surprises everyone when he revealed his new found ability. Like Goku, Vegeta's eyes turned green and his hair was golden yellow. He was now a Super Saiyan. However, confident after defeating Super Saiyan Goku, Android 19 thought Vegeta would be a walk in the park. He was sadly mistaking as Vegeta toyed with him, allowing 19 to drain a substantial amount of energy until ripping off his arms and then blasting him with a Big Bang Attack which destroyed him easily. Piccolo then assumed that Vegeta was even stronger than Goku. After the destruction of Androids 19, Vegeta was naturally quite drained, but bluffed #20 into thinking he was still capable of taking him out. #20 seeing the death of #19 as proof easily takes the bait and is scared. This article or section should be merged with Vegeta Big Bang attack is a ki attack from the televison show Dragon Ball Z. In this attack, Vegeta extands one arm forward, with his hand out as if to tell someone to stop. ...


Search for Dr. Gero

Androids #20 distracts Vegeta, and promptly flees the battle. Hiding out in various canyons and behind rock faces. #20 is stalked by the relentlessly pursuing Z Warrior gang at a range of canyons. He hides, and Vegeta, becoming more and more frustrated, can't manage to find the thrifty Androids. #20 only reveals himself after Vegeta throws a ki blast into the canyon, hoping to clear it away. #20 absorbs this and runs off into the distance again. Then Androids plans to absorb the energy of all the weaker fighters to power himself up and beat Vegeta. He reveals himself to Piccolo, holding him at his grasp and sucking out his energy until Gohan saves him. Piccolo then proposes to fight Dr. Gero, and it is not long until Dr. Gero realizes, even with his newly absorbed energy, that he isn't even strong enough to defeat Piccolo, someone who *should* be nothing to him. Piccolo tells him that they have been training for their arrival, which shocks Dr. Gero. The boy from the future then arrives, and is shocked, because the Androids that everyone is fighting currently, are not the same ones he warned them about! Naturally, this surprises everyone. Vegeta realizes the future boy is his son because Piccolo had called his name before which is the same name as his own son (Trunks). He also realizes how Trunks was able to become a Super Saiyan last time. Bulma promptly comes in a aircraft, but notices Dr. Gero. While everyone's attention is diverted to Bulma, #20 takes the opportunity to escape but not before blowing the landscape with a powerful ki wave, which further distracts everyone. Bulma's aircraft is blown up but she and the baby are saved by Trunks. Trunks is angry and shaken up that Vegeta, the one closest to them did not even try to go and save his own family. Bulma reveals that Android 20 is actually Dr. Gero, who must have rebuilt himself as a robot since his human body had become weak and frail. Trunks confronts Vegeta about before, but Vegeta tells him that his family means nothing to him. Trunks persists, but Vegeta yells him to get out of the way, and promptly flies off. The Z fighters pursue him to his lab, but arrive to late and watch as Gero he revives his most recent yet unstable creations, the siblings, Android #17 and Android #18. Trunks wants to destroy them before they are activated, as #17 and #18 are the one ravaging his own timeline. However, much to his dismay, Vegeta wants to fight them awakened, as they might be a good challenge to him. Gero knows of their inability to follow orders directly and built a emergency stop control to shut them down whenever they become out of control. However, since the Androids were so powerful, they were capable of easily relinquishing the remote from him this time. They make their way to another one of Dr. Gero's creations, and decide to unleash this *incomplete* monster going by the name, Android #16. Dr. Gero is furious, and yells at them with increasing intensity to not activate #16, as its awakening might kill them all. #17 and # 18 naturally don't listen to him and #17 effortlessly kills Dr. Gero. Trunks at this point snaps and launches a full power ki blast in his Super Saiyan form at the Androids, destroying the whole lab and the surrounding mountainside. This does not faze them a bit and #17 and #18 awaken #16, who states that his main purpose is to kill Goku.


Battle with Androids #17 and #18

The Z Warriors are aware of these new enemies, and begin to confront them, most of all Vegeta. Android 16 takes no part in the fight and opts to enjoy the sight of his surroundings wildlife creatures. Vegeta, eager to fully try out his new Super Saiyan abilities, challenges #18 to a fight. At first, it seems to be evenly matched, which shocks Trunks and the Z-Fighters, but it soon becomes apparent that #18 is only toying with him. However, Vegeta doesn't know when to give up, and continues to fight and get beaten, thinking that he could tire them out. It becomes evident, that these two Androids, in fact, don't tire out or run out of energy, as they were built with almost unlimited internal power sources. Eventually #18 ends the battle by breaking Vegeta's arm with a kick. #17 comes and tells the Z-Fighters that no one should interfere in the match, or he'll fight them as well. Regardless, Trunks jumps in to help his beaten father, but taken out with one hit from #17. The others, having no choice come rush them as well only to be all taken out without effort. Vegeta's determination doesn't pull through when #18 breaks his other arm finally rendering him unconscious. This leaves only Kuririn, who did not fight due to fear unscathed. Kuririn tries to reason with the Androids that Goku had done nothing to them and that going after him would be morally wrong. #17 then explains to Kuririn that finding Goku is a game. #16 also said that he was programmed to kill Goku. Then Androids #16 and #17 go off to find Goku but not before telling Kuririn that if anyone else wants to face them again, they would gladly accept a rematch. Androids #18 then kisses Kuririn and they fly off. Kuririn wonders if the Androids are as evil as Trunks warned but puts that aside and quickly heals the others, with the remaining Senzu Beans. Vegeta gets back to his feet and dusts himself off. His pride keeping him from admitting his inferior power, he flies off angrily. Trunks realizes that the Androids in the time period are far stronger than their counterparts in his own time, as he was able to fight them evenly for a time there. Piccolo comes to a realization that they don't have enough time to train, the only way for him to get strong enough is to become one being with Kami. He doesn't admit any of this to the others though, and tries to fool them into thinking he is still the evil Piccolo Daimao by making idle threats and then flying off. Kuririn is not fooled though, and instantly makes the realization that Piccolo is going to Kami's Palace to fuse with him. He would then become one with Kami as they used to be long ago. A fusion of the two beings, where they become one being. Piccolo arrives and Kami already knows what he came for. Kami's unsure of the fusion for awhile but then agrees, but not because of the Androids, there was another, more vile threat to Earth that has been there for 4 years already. Piccolo also insists they are not uniting the way that they split into, that Kami is only to serve as a power boost for him. Nevertheless, the rejoin, and regain the identity that they had lost long ago as well as Kami's vast wisdom and knowledge, becoming a Super Namek. Piccolo heads for the area where the evil disturbance he sensed came from. When Kami disappeared, the Dragonballs and Shenron ceased to exist. This is a problem that is later solved. With the knowledge of the new creature, Piccolo goes to investigate the threat... Senzu Beans or just Senzu are a food in the fictional manga Dragon Ball. ...
