"Howdy there, I'm Android 13. Look at my trucker hat."
— "Super Android 13"

Android 13 (人造人間13号) is a redneck. He is Dr. Gero's thirteenth android creation. He was initially designed to serve Dr. Gero's vendetta against Goku, who overthrew the Red Ribbon Army as a child. He is the main antagonist of the movie Super Android 13.

In Dragon Ball Z: Abridged[]

In the abridged series, he was first mentioned in episode 38, in which Android 17 mocked Dr. Gero's comment on how Android 16 isn't properly programmed by adopting a southern accent to mimic his redneck accent (which Dr. Gero said the reason for this was because he was going through a phase).

In the movie, it was confirmed that his redneck accent is a programming error instead of his voice. When he was woken up, Dr. Gero (having backed up his consciousness into his Super Computer) was angry to find that he still has his redneck voice as he exclaimed "We just finished patching that!", with him responding, "You can't fix what ain't broke!"

He is fond of his trucker hat, as when he loses it after being attacked by Goku, he angrily counterattacks him, declaring, "Ya plum done gon' dadgum did it now, son!". And he shows his anger of losing it after Vegeta shows up, declaring, "I'd tip my hat to ya, BUT I LOST IT!!!"

Android 13 reveals to Goku, Vegeta, and the other Z-fighters that he and the others (Android 14 and Android 15) were deactivated by Dr. Gero and stored away. This was due to various problems each of the Androids possessed: 13's southern accent, 14's damaged sound card, and 15's drinking problem (though Vegeta initially believed that because he was purple; which causes Android 13 to call him a racist).

Abilities[]

Android Physiology[]

As with most Androids, 13 can't be located by energy sensing, and can only be found the old fashioned way.

Attacks[]

T.H. Death Bomb (S.S. Deadly Bomber): 13 charges a giant crimson pink energy sphere attack that can home in on enemies. The T.H., of course, means Trucker Hat. Used against Goku.

Transformation[]

Super Mode: After absorbing Android 14 and 15's computer chips and energy reactors, 13 powers up to a blue muscular form with a very tough armor. This form also causes him to remain taciturn, something Dr. Gero calls an improvement. First accessed after the destruction of Android 14 and 15.
