Overview[edit]

A mysterious new Android who is somehow connected to Android 16. In her default form, she's a young woman with long, bushy hair, who wears glasses and is supposedly as smart as Dr. Gero, perhaps even more so.

In Dragon Ball FighterZ, Android 21 is unique for her ability to copy abilities from her opponents with her command grab, Connoisseur Cut. Outside of her power-copying techniques, she also boasts a strong long-range game, using a combination of copied attacks and her own projectiles to wear down her enemies from a distance.

Ability Absorption[edit]

Android 21 has a unique ability where she can use her Connoisseur Cut specials to absorb the energy of an opponent and use one of their abilities.

There are 4 slots above Android 21's bar of meter. Each one of these slots corresponds to a version of Connoisseur Cut. From left to right, the slots are for:

  • Connoisseur Cut (236S)
  • Air Connoisseur Cut (j.236S)
  • Aerial Connoisseur Cut (214S)
  • Air Aerial Connoisseur Cut (j.214S)

After absorbing an opponent's energy with one of the above versions of Connoisseur Cut, the slot will fill up with the move that you absorbed. After this, if you use the same input that you used to absorb the move, you'll do the special move that you absorbed instead of the Connoisseur Cut.

Furthermore, Android 21 can chain the copied abilities by pressing the S button while using one of them (e.g. Kamehameha > Solar Flare > Kamehameha). Using the H version of Total Detonation Ball makes Android 21 discard all her currently copied abilities, but in return, the move becomes stronger in proportion to how many abilities had been copied at that point.

Absorbed abilities are separated into 4 colors/categories. Using Connoisseur Cut on a character belonging to one of these categories will give you a predetermined move based on this category. The move absorbed is different depending on whether you used Connoisseur Cut (236S/j.236S) or Aerial Connoisseur Cut (214S/j.214S).

The breakdown of which character belongs to which color/category is as follows:

  • Blue: Adult Gohan, Teen Gohan, Goku, SS Goku, SSB Goku, Goku Black, Krillin, Tien, Yamcha
  • Green: Android 16, Android 17, Android 18, Android 21, Cell
  • Orange: Bardock, Broly, Gotenks, Nappa, Trunks, Vegeta, SS Vegeta, SSB Vegeta, Vegito
  • Purple: Beerus, Captain Ginyu, Cooler, Frieza, Hit, Kid Buu, Majin Buu, Piccolo, Zamasu

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Excellent neutral game. 5M, 2M, 5H have excellent range.
  • Can convert any stray hit into great damage with assists. 214X are great combo enders that bring opponent to the ground for combo extensions with assists. Has multiple TOD combo paths.
  • Fast assist: Projectile has same priority as kamehameha but is much faster.
  • Flexible Super Usage: Level 1 Super is easily comboable from 214X. Has level 3 ground and air supers.
  • Fast Command Grab: Useful in blockstrings and can absorb an enemy attack to gain different tools.
  • Excellent mixup in blockstrings: solid IAD j.M (can cross up), 214M can cross up, 3M can hit from almost full screen after blockstring ends (LL2MMHS236L).
  • No access to knockdowns on her own except for level 3 Super, stolen moves, or assists.
  • Dependent on assists: Lack of proper assists can cut her damage potential and oki options severely.

  • Android 21 throws three fireballs that fan outward. Pushes Android 21's air momentum back.

Because j.S commands so much screen space, it's best used in conjunction with vanish to close the distance between you and your opponent. Take care in throwing it out as it has an obvious animation and can be super dashed through.

Absorbed Abilities[edit]

When chaining absorbed abilities, 21 begins teleporting 8 frames after pressing S and the ability being canceled into becomes active as soon as she reappears (except in the case of a raw sonic warp). "Cancelable" in the ability descriptions refers specifically to cancelling one absorbed ability into another and not anything else like regular attacks or supers.
