Overview[edit]

"Let's have some fun. This is a game, after all."


Android 18's younger twin brother. Forcibly turned into a cyborg alongside his sister by Dr. Gero for the purpose of destroying Son Goku, he rebelled and killed Dr Gero with little effort. Despite being free from the doctor's demands, both 17 and 18, along with the reactivated Android 16, continued in their task in killing Son Goku just for the entertainment. 17 was then absorbed by Imperfect Cell, but was later revived by Shenron after Cell's defeat. With Goku gone and the world at peace for the time, Android 17 became a park ranger in order to preserve nature and wildlife. Many years later, 17 finds himself with the Z Fighters again after being recruited by Son Goku to join in the Tournament of Power as one of Universe 7's strongest warriors, with 17 ultimately winning the tournament as the last remaining fighter.

The Park Ranger leaves his island to land in Dragon Ball FighterZ as a DLC character. Here, Android 17 operates as a speed-type character who can throw out many special moves with follow-up inputs, as well as punish moves with his barrier.

Strengths/Weaknesses[edit]

Strengths Weaknesses
  • Rekkas/multi-inputs, cross-ups and 4 lows give him a plethora of mixup options and damage.
  • Above average solo damage in the right scenarios.
  • Above average meter gain.
  • Multiple ToD routes with the right assists and an even more amazing meter gain in sparking.
  • 1 Frame Reversal level 1 Super.
  • Acrobatic Assault allows him to have extra mobility, extend combos and get out off tough situations.
  • Amazing corner carry with M rekka inputs.
  • Fast assist with multiple aplications, being defensive and offensive at the same time.
  • More technical than other characters, which requires a higher level of execution and solid conditioning for his tactics.
  • Most of his normals are poor in horizontal range.
  • Has some difficulties on getting hard knockdowns in air without power blitz.
  • His only projectile that cannot be super dashed through requires a charge, leaving him with an undesirable ranged game.

  • Teleports behind you the opponent.
  • Unlike Cooler, DHC early won't keep you same side while still get reduced damage.
  • KOing with this causes a kneeling animation.
  • Minimum damage 891. Non-cinematic version has minimum damage 708
  • Slow startup so Sliding Knockdown pickup is hard in some cases

  • 17 covers himself in a barrier and rushes forward the opponent, covering all the screen.
  • The ground version corrects 17's position and puts him in the same height as his opponent.
  • Fully invulnerable from frame 1.
  • This is 17's DHC Super.
  • Minimum damage 817. Non-cinematic version has minimum damage 708.

Opponent cannot tech in the air, so certain assists (Teen / Adult Gohan, Cooler, etc) can be used to combo after (timing for this is tight, need to be high in the air to work).


Super Electric Strike[edit]

  • Ground version makes 17 jump back a little bit.

17 releases a lot of energy from his body into his arms, which allows him to create a giant disk of energy that can take up most of the screen in all directions. As a projectile Level 3 attacks, the damage is mediocre, but it doesn't scale as much. However, the blue health created by the attack could be easily healed during sparking.
