Jinzōningen Jū Hachi-go
Artificial Human #18
Artificial Human No. 18
Android 18 is the sister of Android 17 in Universe 14. Universe 14's Android 18 had not been killed by Trunks, as Trunks was killed by Cell in Universe 17. Android 18 continued to dominate the Earth with her brother until they were offered a chance to compete in the Multiverse Tournament.
Android 18, like her brother, has shoulder length hair, but hers is blonde. She also has blue eyes, and loop earrings on both ears. She keeps the left side of her hair behind her ear. When she is first activated by Gero, she wears a blue jean jacket and skirt (with the Red Ribbon logo on the back of the jacket) with dark blue stockings, brown boots, and a black undershirt that has white and black striped sleeves.
Initially cool and confident, 18's sarcastic humor later becomes the most striking trait of her personality. One example of her sarcasm is demonstrated when Universe 18 counterpart is asked if her real name is legitimately "No. 18", to which she responds "My father was pretty dull". Shortly before this conversation at the 25th World Martial Arts Tournament, Gokū takes notice of her assembly with the Z Fighters, leading to the retort "Look, he noticed. How cute." Android 18 still exhibits some of her sensitivity, especially towards her twin brother. This is in stark contrast to her counterpart from Universe 12, where she is a murderous sociopath who cares for no one but herself and her brother.
One Way (Universe 14)
Android 18 is an Android created by Dr. Gero in order to kill Gokū. Android 18's personalities depend on the timeline (or universe in Dragon Ball Multiverse). In Universe 18, her interests do not deviate from this expectation, Android 18's curiosity to activate #16, in spite of Gero's orders not to do so, lead #17 to take it upon himself to murder Gero himself. She later becomes the wife of Krillin and the mother of their only daughter, Marron. She also unofficially joins the Z Fighters. In Universe 12 (also known as Future Trunks' timeline), Android 18 was a ruthless killer who ravaged the Earth and, along with her brother, killed all of the Z-Fighters other than Trunks. This incarnation of Android 18 was killed when Trunks came back from the past after gaining an immense amount of power from the Room of Spirit and Time. Universe 14's Android 18, however, did not get killed by Trunks, as Trunks was killed by Cell in Universe 17. Android 18 continued to dominate the Earth with her brother until they were offered a chance to compete in the Multiverse Tournament.
In her first round she faced off against Yamcha from Universe 9. Even though she was seemingly no match for him, Yamcha eventually gave up the fight, making her the technical winner of the match.
Through the second round of the tournament, 18 manage to defeat Arale, from Universe 2, after the latter had run out of energy. Having collapsed after attempting to drink energy from an empty bottle, 18 was declared as the match's victor, in posteriority to a 30-second count.
Android 18's third match was against XXI. After a warning from Yamcha, she charged at XXI, only to be shut down by a remote, that XXI had hidden in his sleeve. With 18 shut down, XXI is declared the winner. Yamcha then goes retrieve her.
Android 18 is fitted with a device that gives her a continuous and virtually infinite energy supply. This prevents her from becoming exhausted while fighting, and augments her power enough to make her a formidable opponent even for any of the surviving Saiyans. A skill which she shares with other Android models is the ability to go undetected by ki signatures, as her power is substantiated by mechanics. Just like her brother, her cybernetic implants do not affect her ability to gain new skills and power levels through training. However, during her first round battle, Yamcha informed 18 that her "infinite power" had regressed over time, making her weaker than she initially was.
However, by the end of the second round, Zen Buu restored all of 18's lost power. How strong she is now remains to be seen.
