Android 19 (人造人間１９号) is an android created by Dr. Gero with the purpose of killing Goku as revenge for overthrowing the whole Red Ribbon Army. Out of all of Dr. Gero's Androids, Android 19 is the only Android who is both loyal and obedient. He makes a minor appearance as an antagonist in Season 3 of DragonBall Z Abridged.
In DragonBall Z Abridged, Android 19 speaks in a heavily modded robotic emotionless voice, mostly speaking in protocols and programs. Like many other abridged characters, he is more comical than the original series, which is evidenced when he believes the Z-Fighters are psychic after the Z-Fighters figure out that he and Dr. Gero are Androids. However, after Android 19 executes Murder.exe, he drops the comical traits and becomes more mission-oriented. As an old model android, he often gets prone to loading errors and is slow, much to Dr. Gero's annoyance.
Android 19 first appears on an island nine miles southwest of South City alongside Android 20 (who is actually Dr. Gero), who head inside the city to cause destruction. Since they are mechanical beings, the Z Fighters are unable to sense their ki and are forced to head inside the city to search for both of them. When the Androids encounter Yamcha, Android 19 mistakes him for Goku due to having similarities in their appearances, which leads to Dr. Gero absorbing Yamcha's energy and fatally injures him by impaling him. By the time Tien, Piccolo, Krillin, and Goku arrive at the area, Krillin takes Yamcha away to a safe area while Piccolo confirms that 19 and Dr. Gero must be the two Androids they have been warned about. As Dr. Gero is baffled about the Z-Fighters knowing that they are Android, Android 19 states that they must be psychic and states that they can see the future in a Kanassan-like accent. Believing this, Dr. Gero destroys half of the city with eye beams until Goku stops him by punching him in the face. At Tien's request, the Z-Fighters decide to take the battle elsewhere and leads the Androids out of the city.
After relocating to a deserted wasteland, Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan and takes on Android 19. However, Android 19 crashes while activating the Murder.exe program and has to reboot as Goku goes on the offensive and overwhelms the Android. Eventually, Android 19 completes rebooting and starts overpowering Goku, who is weakened due to suffering a heart attack. As 19 start absorbing Goku's energy, he gets sent flying by a kick to the face by no one other than Vegeta. Much to everyone's surprise, Vegeta also transforms into a Super Saiyan and beats Android 19 to a pulp until 19 manages to grab Vegeta's arms using Trap.exe and locks his grip in an attempt to absorb Vegeta's energy. Unfazed, Vegeta places both his feet on 19's face and tears off both his arms, mockingly asking the Android if he now feels fear. Now terrified, Android 19 attempts to make an escape, but Vegeta flies up destroys him with a Big Bang Attack. Android 19's head is later seen on the ground getting hit by a Senzu Bean and a dog treat (from Krillin and Vegeta respectively). Shortly after the battle, 19's head is later seen by Future Trunks, mistaking him as Chiaotzu before realizing that he's an android that's different from the ones on his own timeline.
Android Biology Edit
Android 19 is pure robotic, meaning he doesn't emit a power signature like most of the Z-Fighter's foes. As such, he can't be sensed by energy, and has to be located be hunting him down physically.
Enegry Absorbers Edit
Android 19 is outfitted with energy absorbers on his hands. With these, he can absord his opponents energy either through physical contact, or absorbing their energy waves. However, their biggest downfall is their location, as shown when 19 tried to absorb Vegeta's energy through contact, only to have both it's arms ripped off by the Saiyan.
- Similar to Yamcha, Raditz, and Guldo, Android 19 is often treated as a joke character by Androids 17 and 18.
- Not counting flashbacks, Android 19 is tied for having one of the shortest on-screen appearances in the DragonBall Z Abridged along with Guldo.
