Notable Attacks / Techniques:

Android Physiology: Android 16 was made by Dr. Gero to be a fully mechanical humanoid android (or "Artificial Human") possessing immense power beyond that of most of his other android units. Due to his artificial energy, 18 has no ki signature, but a built-in radar allows him to detect and analyze the powers of others. Built for combat, 16 has a variety of weapons built into his body, and he can fire out his fist as if it were a rocket. This is not all he has, however, as while does not make use of normal ki, 16 can still utilize his own energy for a variety of attacks and even self-destruct with enough force to destroy the planet.

  • Eye Lasers: 16 can fire lasers from his eyes.
  • Hell's Flash: One of Android 16's ultimate attacks, in which he removes the front half of his forearms, tucking them between his armpits, exposing a pair of cannons within that charge up for a moment before releasing an extremely powerful beam of energy.
