Notable Attacks / Techniques:
Android Physiology: Once a human, Android 18 was converted into a cybernetic android (or "Artificial Human") by Dr. Gero, modified on a cellular level to be superhuman and instilling her with an infinite supply of energy and immense power. Due to her artificial energy, 18 has no ki signature and cannot detect ki normally herself. As opposed to the fully mechanical models, 18's organic components mean that she can train and grow stronger over time and she ages much more slowly than a regular human. While she does not make use of normal ki, 18 can still utilize her own energy for a variety of attacks.
- Android Barrier: The Red Ribbon Android version of the regular energy shield, an energy-based forcefield used to block attacks.
- Kienzan: Krillin's signature technique, which 18 surely learned from her husband. Raising her hand above her head, 18 creates a razor-sharp disc of energy with incredible cutting power, and then throws it at her opponent.
