  • Android 8 is seen again during the King Piccolo Saga of Dragon Ball when he goes to rescue Suno after she falls victim to King Piccolo's assault on King Castle. Android 8's appearance in "Lost and Found" was his last in the Dragon Ball anime.
  • "It's your turn to suffer!" -"The Fall of Muscle Tower" Android 8 is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "Mysterious Android No. 8", the 39th episode of the Dragon Ball anime, which premiered on November 19, 1986. He makes his first manga appearance in "Mechanical Man No. 8", the 63rd chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, issued on March 10, 1987. Dr. Gero's eighth creation, Android 8 was designed to serve the Red Ribbon Army, but was seen as faulty because of his well-spirited nature. He bears heavy resemblance to Frankenstein's monster.
  • Android 8 is Dr. Gero's eerste 'succesvolle' creatie. Hij is niet gemaakt door Dr. Frappe zoals in Dragon Ball beweerd wordt. We zien hem in Dragon Ball, in de Red Ribbon Army-saga. Naast het feit dat hij erg sterk is, kan hij ook zelf denken en heeft hij een eigen wil ontwikkeld. Zo weigert hij slechte dingen voor het Red Ribbon-leger te doen. Ook deze androïde heeft een bom in zijn lichaam. Wanneer Goku de Muscle Tower beklimt om de burgemeester van een naburig dorp te bevrijden helpt Android 8 hem in plaats van hem te doden.

  • Android 8 is Dr. Gero's eerste 'succesvolle' creatie. Hij is niet gemaakt door Dr. Frappe zoals in Dragon Ball beweerd wordt. We zien hem in Dragon Ball, in de Red Ribbon Army-saga. Naast het feit dat hij erg sterk is, kan hij ook zelf denken en heeft hij een eigen wil ontwikkeld. Zo weigert hij slechte dingen voor het Red Ribbon-leger te doen. Ook deze androïde heeft een bom in zijn lichaam. Wanneer Goku de Muscle Tower beklimt om de burgemeester van een naburig dorp te bevrijden helpt Android 8 hem in plaats van hem te doden. Dankzij Android 8, die op dat moment veel sterker is dan Goku, slaagt Goku in zijn missie. Hierna blijft Android 8 in het dorp wonen waar de burgemeester vandaan kwam. We zien de pacifistische reus in de Kid Buu-saga weer even terug, wanneer hij energie afstaat aan Goku.
  • "It's your turn to suffer!" -"The Fall of Muscle Tower" Android 8 is a fictional character in the Dragon Ball franchise. He makes his debut in "Mysterious Android No. 8", the 39th episode of the Dragon Ball anime, which premiered on November 19, 1986. He makes his first manga appearance in "Mechanical Man No. 8", the 63rd chapter of the Dragon Ball manga, issued on March 10, 1987. Dr. Gero's eighth creation, Android 8 was designed to serve the Red Ribbon Army, but was seen as faulty because of his well-spirited nature. He bears heavy resemblance to Frankenstein's monster. As Gero was not introduced to the series until five years later in Dragon Ball Z, a filler episode of the Dragon Ball anime established that the scientist Dr. Flappe was the inventor of Android 8. The fact that Flappe does not appear in Akira Toriyama's manga work, nor is he mentioned as the creator of any android models in Dragon Ball Z, coupled with the fact that Toriyama was in fact involved in the production of anime filler material, makes it difficult to identify exactly who designed Android 8. To compromise for this, there have been suggestions that both Gero and Flappe created Android 8 as a joint effort. Another possibility is that Android 8 came from a totally different line of Red Ribbon Androids, and so would not have been included. Android 17 asserts during the Androids Saga of Dragon Ball Z that Dr. Gero destroyed the first fifteen Androids he designed, however this disturbs the canonicity of both the mainstream series (as Android 8 makes cameo appearances throughout both Z and Dragon Ball GT) and Super Android 13!, which features Androids 13, 14 and 15 as its lead villains and provides an original explanation that Dr. Gero was murdered by Android 17 and 18 prior to personally completing 13 through 15 (leaving an underground supercomputer to finish the models posthumously).
