I was a bit suprised to see him be so notable in the story mode. As he died in Dragon Ball Z and since he was purely robotics, there was nothing to wish back.
But he’s a creation of Android 21, and infused with all the memories and powers of the old Android 16. Together they bring back all the old bad guys with the help of Namek’s Porunga and their dragon balls.
I never quite understood their motivations, but in the last story mode, all the Androids team up together.
16 really tries his best to be the greatest “friend” to 21.
And she turns psycho and kills him… yikes. That was a bit sad.
As a fighter in the main gameplay, I liked him a lot. While he doesn’t have many ki moves, he seemed pretty strong in both the story mode and online against human players.
