Dragon Ball Z's Androids names revealed


These names rock. Or they're gems, I can't tell

Did you ever feel like you didn't know enough about the young, hip Androids 17 & 18 from Dragon Ball Z? Well, thanks to Akira Toriyama answering questions in a Q&A column, we finally know the names of our favorite androids/cyborgs/whatever. Keeping with the punny nature of the other characters, 17 and 18 are named "Lapis" and "Lazuli," respectively. So instead of sticking with the food puns, Toriyama moved on to gem wordplay. Strange, but hey, it's his work so he can do whatever he wants with it.

He also went on to detail 17's fate, post-Cell Games. The handsome lad went on to become a park ranger, marrying a zoologist and smacking down poachers. That's a pretty strange way for an android/cyborg/whatever to end their days, but not a bad one in the scheme of things. More importantly, it flies in the face of some of the awful stuff with 17 in Dragon Ball GT and anything that spites that show is fine by me.
