Submitter's Comment
Android 21 (人造人間21号 Jinzōningen Nijūichi-Gō, lit. "Artificial Human No. 21") is an Android who appears as the main antagonist of Dragon Ball FighterZ when in her evil persona. Her intellect rivals that of Dr. Gero, though she may be even smarter than he was.

Android 21 was designed by Akira Toriyama

Background
Initially a Human-type Earthling, 21 was converted by Doctor Gero into an Android. As a human, she had a son with Dr. Gero who became the model for the design of Android 16. Tragically their son was killed by an enemy bullet while serving as a high ranking soldier in the Red Ribbon Army, which itself would be destroyed by the Saiyan Goku, causing Dr. Gero to dedicate the remainder of his life to destroying Goku in revenge for the Army's destruction and created Android 16 in the image of their deceased son, though Dr. Gero found himself unable to bear the thought of 16's destruction, so he programmed Android 16 to be non-aggressive and choose not to deploy him against Goku. At some point, Dr. Gero decided to convert the mother of his son into Android 21, though his reasons for doing so are unknown as he was killed by Android 17 and the development of Android 21 was taken over by his Supercomputer. Over time, the cells of numerous powerful warriors and intelligent researchers were added to her, with even the likes of Buu's cells being added to her. She later discusses the fact that she is technically "not even ten years old" and was built in the image of a human woman with the IQ of an adult, noting that she feels as though she missed out on her adolescence. She states she has no memory of her life as a human and often found it fun to imagine what her original name was and what her life was like. She did not know why Gero created her as a unique new type of Android different from the mecha-types (like 16) and the modified humans (like 17 and 18). Her good side did not know much about her creator (only referring to him as "the scientist") though she knew he was an evil person with great intelligence, though discussing him for some reason made her feel like crying; on the other hand, her evil side knew about Gero to an extent yet cared little for him.

At some point, 21 recalled the memory of her having a son when she was still human. When she realized that she wanted so badly to see him and have him by her side, she repaired Android 16 (the android whose design was modeled after her son) later on and explained that she wanted to treat him like family, implying that it was the result of her human self's love for her son. Android 21 apparently unaware that Dr. Gero was the father of her human son and thus the exact nature of Dr. Gero's relationship with her human self is unknown beyond the fact that they were the parents of 16's human template. While 21's human form appears to be younger than Dr. Gero, it unknown if she was in fact younger than him when she was human as her youthful appearance could easily be attributed to her being converted into an android. When 21's urges resurfaced, she activated the link system to use its functions to keep herself under control, by suppressing her growing need to feed, and the persona that spawned from it. Eventually, this led them to seek out Android 18 and Android 17 separately, with the system activated, in hopes they would be able to successfully link them with another soul.

According to Android 16, at some point, the cells in 21 may have gone berserk, which resulted in her uncontrollable urges to feed. It is strongly implied that Majin Buu's cells may have been responsible as it should be noted that the Kid Buu clones created by 21 seem to retain the destructive personality of Kid Buu (while other clones act as little more than mindless drones) and it should be noted that the Kid Buu clones tend to absorb other clones to grow stronger. Additionally Android 21's hunger may be a result of her unique combination of Majin and Saiyan cells, as both Saiyans and Majins are known to have large appetites. Her evil persona may have also been influenced by the combination of cells she acquired from Frieza, Cell, and Kid Buu as her evil side is known to be cold-hearted like Frieza and Cell while showing signs of madness similar to Kid Buu. The evil 21 does not dismiss the idea of galactic conquest which may also be influenced by Frieza's cell.
