Android 17 is one of the most active Universe 7 members since the beginning of Tournament of Power. He has been appearing on several rough times to smoothen out the rough patches for U7. His sticky electric barrier has proven to be an effective protective and offensive asset. But how capable really is Android 17?
It was previously assumed that Android 17 is near SSB level. He fought with SSB Goku equally during their first actual match. Sure there is still Super Saiyan Blue Kaioken, which means that Android 17is actually far from reaching Goku’s real power. But being on Blue tier means you’re already at a Godly level.
However, the Dragon Ball Super manga seems to deviate away from this conclusion. In the manga, the Universal Survival saga is just starting and Goku is doing his recruitment job. He successfully recruited Krillin and Android 18, who was interestingly watching Satan’s movie about his supposedly battle against Cell. Just like in anime, Goku started finding Android 17 with the help of Dende and Kami’s Lookout Mobile.
In the manga, during Android 17 and Goku’s fight, it was revealed that Goku doesn’t need to turn SSB to get Android 17’s attention. In fact, the highest transformation that he performed is Super Saiyan 3. There are two things that we can get from this manga deviation. The first one is that Android 17 will get a huge nerf in the manga.
Of course, there will be a lot of changes if that happens. The most noticeable for me is his fight against Ribrianne. Since he might be nerfed, his fight with Ribrianne will be a lot harder. Things will really change in the duration of Tournament of Power if he will get the nerfing that I see. The second one is that Android 17 will reveal his true power later in the manga.
This one is preferable because it will give a surprise element not only to the enemies but for his allies as well. I can see Vegeta trying to consider fighting poachers if it can make him reach higher SSB level.
DBS New Warrior’s Real Identity Revealed
Hey guys. We have some pretty awesome news about the next episode of Dragon Ball Super. In the next episode, we know that in the next episode of Dragon Ball Super that it is going to be an all-out battle between Universe 3 and Universe 7. In the next episode, we will witness the trump card of Universe 3. As it has already been revealed that the robots of Universe 3 are going to undergo a fusion together. This is their ace against Universe 7. A few days back, it was revealed that a new character will be making an appearance in the series.
Well, now we have an actual confirmation regarding the new warrior. It was pointed out by KenXyro on Twitter that the mysterious warrior is, in fact, the warrior of Universe 3. You can take a look at the tweet by KenXyro below—
“A better scan of that “Character yet to appear in the Anime”.
Character’s name seen, to begin with, “A” so I guess this is “Aniraza” which will appear in DBS episode 121. https://t.co/H10bgMPjdI ” — KenXyro
Following up the name of the character, he further revealed that the fighter is actually the new warrior from Universe 3.
Rather the new fused warrior. Take a look at this tweet—
“I’ve circled the place you need to zoom in at.
It’s very clear, no doubt about it being the U3 robot. https://t.co/mB6hY70EM3 “—@KenXyro
The new fused warrior will first of all be taking on Goku and Vegeta, who will him in the Super Saiyan Blue mode I believe.
However, in this episode, it will be Gohan who will take the centre stage and fight off Aniraza. It is going to be an intense battle that is for sure. It is after a long time, that Gohan is actually getting some decent screen time. It will be intriguing to see whether or not Gohan makes it through the end of the Tournament of Power.
It also looks that Android 18 might be eliminated in the next episode as a leaked preview image was released and it had the leftover members of Universe 7. She was not in the photo. I think there is a chance that it might be true as Universe 7 have the sheer advantage of numbers while compared to the other two remaining universes in the Tournament of Power.
