Future Android 17.png
Follow me, we'll need a new island now that someone's gone and blown this one up. Some people have no respect for nature.

Why do you think I work alone down there, protecting that whole island by myself? Because I'm a one-man army.

Android 17 (real name: Lapis) is one of the Red Ribbon Androids created by Dr. Gero to carry out his vendetta against Son Goku. Whereas the other Androids are mostly mechanical, 17 and his twin sister are cyborgs, having been forcibly transformed into their current states by Gero.

In the Tournament of Power he clashed with Ribrianne and fought against Toppo), Universe level+ with Self-Destruction (He was able to cancel a powerful attack from Jiren by self-destructing.)

Intelligence: Android 17 has always been a skilled martial artist and combatant, capable of holding his own against the likes of Piccolo and even gaining the upper hand, and his skill and cunning only grew in the years leading up to the Tournament of Power, as demonstrated by his much greater control over his techniques and his pragmatic style of combat.

Weaknesses: Initially, Android 17 was quite arrogant and most of his choices during his initial appearance were motivated by what he simply called "The Game", but he has grown past his overconfidence since then.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Android Physiology: Once a human, Android 17 was converted into a cybernetic android (or "Artificial Human") by Dr. Gero, modified on a cellular level to be superhuman and instilling him with an infinite supply of energy and immense power. Due to his artificial energy, 17 has no ki signature and cannot detect ki normally himself. As opposed to the fully mechanical models, 17's organic components mean that he can train and grow stronger over time and he ages much more slowly than a regular human. While he does not make use of normal ki, 17 can still utilize his own energy for a variety of attacks.

  • Android Barrier: The Red Ribbon Android version of the regular energy shield, an energy-based forcefield used to block attacks. This is 17's signature technique, and by the time of the Tournament of Power, he has grown more skilled in its use, allowing him to use it to encircle and trap opponents or wrap the barriers around his hands to boost his attacking power. If need be, he can even cause the barrier to violently explode.
  • Kiai: The ability to project an invisible burst of force with energy, which 17 can perform with his hands. His Kiai has special explosive properties, making it particularly potent.
