[edit] Summary

18 holding Krillin after his death

Android 17 continues his attempts to control Android 18, however Krillin intervenes, pointing out that 18 is now married and has a child. He also reminds Android 17 that he killed Dr. Gero himself, but 17's Machine Mutant counterpart contacts him as he is learning the truth and regains control, causing him to kill Krillin. Krillin's death brings Android 18 back to reality causing her to attack her brother. Seeing what he's done, he then targets Marron so he can gain full control of 18, but 18 defends her from 17's energy wave, leaving her in a critical condition. Android 17 flies off to merge with Hell Fighter 17, and 18 crawls over to Krillin, taking his hand as she appears to die with the last words, "My husband, I love you."

Frieza and Cell after being frozen by Goku

Meanwhile in Hell, Cell and Frieza begin to mock Goku because they can now have their revenge by destroying him, but the ice encasing Goku begins to melt. The ice was created by the dead residents of Hell, and so it is ineffective against Goku who is still alive. Goku turns the ice machine against Super Perfect Cell and Frieza, freezing the two solid; he subsequently cracks the "sculptures" by accident.

It is during this time that Gohan is preoccupied with General Rilldo. Rilldo manages to knock Gohan to the ground and freeze an adjacent building, and with it Gohan's leg. Fortunately for Gohan, Majuub, Goten and Trunks arrive and destroy General Rilldo with a single blow. Pan then shows up with Mr. Satan and Giru. Giru thaws Gohan, and the group set out for the battle location of Vegeta and Android 17.

Android 17 & Hell Fighter 17 getting ready to fuse

Vegeta is initially unimpressed with Hell Fighter 17's power level until Dr. Myu and Gero reveal that 17 is using only half of his strength. Followed closely by the Z Fighters, the true Android 17 arrives and the two merge into Super 17, a cyborg more powerful than anything the Z Fighters have ever faced before.

Super 17 throws back his hair and begins to power up. The Z Fighters are shocked until Vegeta attacks him, resulting in being knocked back by one punch. Majuub then tries in vain, followed by Goten and Trunks who attempt a combined attack, to no avail. Gohan then tries a Kamehameha, which does absolutely nothing to the android. Dr. Gero then tells Super 17 to demonstrate his true power, which leads him to strike down every Z Fighter, again using only a single hit.

The Saiyans then assume their Super Saiyan and Super Saiyan 2 transformations, but Super 17 releases a Flash Bomb, weakening them enough to revert from back to normal. Watching from Hell's glass what 17 is capable of, Goku turns to King Yemma for help. King Yemma, however, is powerless in the matter due to Hell in the midst of reacting with Earth, as well as a disturbance between the two dimensions (Which, unknown to anyone is coming from the dragon balls starting to crack). Piccolo then contacts Yemma, requesting to be sent to Hell. Yemma initially refuses, until Piccolo begins acting like King Piccolo before blasting the trees in Heaven–promptly resulting in getting his wish fulfilled. Piccolo apologizes for his outbursts before being sent to Hell.

Back on Earth, Super 17 stares at the rocks above the Z Fighters, believing he is victorious among them. Super Saiyan Vegeta unleashes his devastating Final Shine Attack on 17, but the energy from the technique is absorbed and fired back towards the others. Goku tries to find his way out of Hell until Piccolo arrives, declaring that he will try one of the Nameks' many unknown powers in order to assist Goku in escaping from Hell.

Brief summaryAndroid 17 kills Krillin, which brings 18 Android 17 kills Krillin, which brings 18 to her senses. She fights, but loses, and 17 heads off to find his counterpart. Down in hell, Goku's body heat weakens the ice enough for him to break it, and once he's out, he uses the freezing machine on Frieza and Cell and then accidentally shatters them. Back on earth, the two 17's find each other and merge together, forming Super Android 17. Vegeta, Trunks, Gohan, Goten, and Majuub all try to attack him, but their efforts are useless. 17 takes each of them down with a single punch. Watching this from hell, Goku asks King Yemma if he can bring him to earth, but it is beyond Yemma's power. Piccolo, however, has a plan, and requests that King Yemma send him to hell; when King Yemma refuses, Piccolo convinces him that he made a mistake by wreaking havoc with numerous energy waves, and is sent to hell. umerous energy waves, and is sent to hell.
