Android 12 (人造人間１２号, Jinzōningen Jū Ni-Gō) is an android created by Dr. Gero. She was completed in Age 754. She is a mechanical android, meaning she has no human cells in her body. 12 is an infinite energy type android. 11 and 12 were captured by Earth's Military in Age 756 after being contained by an EMP blast. This caused the androids to deactivate. Shortly afterwards, Cardinal paid Hasky to steal the androids back for him, although he was unable to reactivate them.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Dr. Gero created Android 12 a a light-skinned android with realistic human features. She resembled a 15 or 16 year old girl and was about the average height for such a girl. Gero gave her blue eyes and short blonde hair. He noted that she liked to dye her hair, though (red, purple, brown, black, etc.). Gero gave her a toned, sleek physique, like Android 11, and she was also an infinite energy-type android like Android 11 and did not have any weapons on her body save for the energy ports on her hands, mouth, and eyes. Gero noted that sometimes she wore large pink-rimed sunglasses. He gave her clothes consisting of light-colored shorts, a white and red crop top, a blue bracelet on her left wrist, and a red headband across her forehead with the Red Ribbon Army logo on it. She was also given black and white fingerless gloves and black boots.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Gero stated that he made Android 12 to be an energetic, bombastic individual in contrast to her brother's more subdued personality. He noted that she was often fiery, verbally combative, and cheeky. She also had a better grip on the subtleties of human emotion than Android 11 and liked using sarcasm and wit more than him. Gero noted that she was very intelligent and could pick up on the mannerisms of human behavior very quickly. She was also described as being a very curious individual; she liked to explore all things she wanted to until losing interest in them. Gero thought that her personality and appearance were so realistic that she could blend in with real humans effortlessly.
He programmed her to be skilled in various types of martial arts as well as other types of combat. He noted that she favored attacking while flying and using energy attacks, which was a complete contrast with Android 11, who preferred ground and physical attacks. Gero noted that she was not as aggressive as #11 in hand-to-hand combat. Like Android 11, Gero made Android 12 to have an adaptive body frame and AI, allowing her to grow stronger when new technology develops. He noted that she could also become stronger if she trained.
Though Gero thought she was loyal to him, he also noted that Android 12 was less loyal to him than Android 11. He noted that since she was created second, she was given a slightly more advanced AI than #11. Despite this, she acted more like a child than him and preferred to play and do girl things in her down time. This resulted in her fighting form becoming more sloppy than #11's, as he preferred to train in his down time. Additionally, #12 gave herself the name "Olivia", showing how she saw herself as a human, due to Gero's programming. Gero scoffed at such a notion and refused to call his android anything but #12. Dr. Gero noted that the Red Ribbon Army Remnant's generals and officers had begun calling Androids 11 and 12 by their adopted human names, which annoyed the good doctor. He tried to stop that, but was unsuccessful.
History[edit | edit source]
Dr. Gero stated that he had planned on creating Androids 10, 11, and 12 all at the same time. He completed Android 10 long before #11 and #12, though, for he was unable to work on all three at once (he was only one doctor, after all). Later, as Dr. Gero was putting the finishing touches on Androids 11 and 12, General Lavender, his legion, and Android 10 all stormed Dr. Gero's laboratory and demanded that the good doctor step down. Gero refused and released the almost-complete Androids 11 and 12 to protect himself. They did so. Both of them destroyed General Lavender's army together. Android 12 dueled with and beat Android 10. Once she beat Android 10, she offered him no mercy and decapitated him, and then destroyed his head. With Android 10's memory chip destroyed, the android was no more. After that occurred, Android 11 captured and executed General Lavender personally for his failed rebellion.
Then, Gero had Captain Maroon and Major Pink train Androids 11 and 12 in martial arts, as they were the army's two best martial artists. Once the two became highly skilled in various forms of martial arts and CQC, Androids 11 and 12 were deployed around the world to look for Goku. He eventually split them up so that they could cover twice as much ground. Despite the two not wanting to be split up, they listened to Gero's orders. Android 12 was then assigned to General Copper's legion to help the army search for Goku. Dr. Gero watched his androids on their various missions through remote cameras. During the various search missions for Goku, Android 12 made a name for herself, as she fought against various petty gangs, security forces, martial artists, and even an Earth Defense Force outpost, always coming out on top. She even personally executed the leader of the Sons of Piccolo, causing that gang to break apart and no longer be a threat to the Red Ribbon Army Remnant.
General Copper, Android 12, and General Copper's legion went to the southern islands of the world to search for Goku when they were ambushed by the Red Dragon Brotherhood. Android 12 and Copper's legion held off the rival gang for a while until Android 11 appeared. Once he did, the two androids easily cut a swath through the Red Dragons, killing all of them and destroying the notorious gang once and for all. However, the Earth's Defense Force pursued #11 to that location, and once they arrived, a great battle broke out between them and Copper's legion. In the ensuing battle, all of Copper's soldiers were either killed or taken hostage, and near the end of it, he himself was taken hostage. This left only Androids 11 and 12 to fight off Earth's Defense Force. But there were just too many enemies.
Eventually, the two fell when they were hit by an EMP burst, briefly paralyzing the two androids and allowing the Defense Force to take them captive. Though Dr. Gero tried to remotely detonate both Androids, this proved unsuccessful, as the EMP blast left them unresponsive to his remote controller. Dr. Gero did not know this however, and thought that Androids 11 and 12 had been destroyed. He saw their inability to defeat the Earth's Defense Force as a power failure, and resolved to create a more powerful android in the future.
Near the end of chapter 11, Dr. Gero stated that he would need to go back to the drawing board for Android 13, as Androids 11 and 12 had proved to be too weak to defeat Earth's Defense Force. He realized he would need to make a much stronger android if he had any hope of defeating Goku.
