Android 16 was modeled on Gero’s dead son, a top-ranking Red Ribbon soldier long ago felled by an enemy bullet.He bears many qualities unique to his android series. Android 16 is the only model of the three to be entirely synthetic, which, until the development of next Android 17 and Android 18, was the norm for Gero’s projects. This fact is unknown by Android 17, who was previously under the impression that “Dr. Gero did not have the technology to create an android from nothing,” and wonders “why he went back to cybernetics” (when in actuality Android 17 and Android 18 are the first ‘cybernetic-fitted human’ androids to be seen in the Dragon Ball franchise).
Having not been created from a human base might explain why Android 16 is the strongest of his series, as Android 16 has virtually no human attributes to hinder him (even Android 18 is quick to acknowledge that Android 16 is “fundamentally different” from her and Android 17). Android 16 is nice to both humans and other animals, and proves to be a valuable ally to the Z Fighters in their battle against Cell. He is also the tallest android of both his series and the production line as a whole, towering at over double the height of Android 18.
