Lazuli (ラズリ, Razuri), also designated as Android No. 18 (人造人間１８号, Jinzōningen Jūhachi-Gō; Literally meaning "Cyborg No. 18"), by Dr. Gero is an Android, who was previously a Human. She alongside her brother No. 17, hunted down Son Gokū. Where she would be absorbed by Cell.
Lazuli, along with her twin brother, Lapis, were born the same as regular Earthlings. However, a chance encounter with the mad scientist Gero. who was looking for material for his experiments, resulted in the twins being transformed into Androids. Both of them were fitted with cybernetic enhancements, which granted them unique abilities and a form of immortality. At some point prior to the second half of the Dragon Ball series, the twins were deactivated and placed in stasis, as Gero could not control them properly.
18 is considered as a "lovely-girl-type" at first sight. She has straight blonde hair and narrow blue eyes. She always wears some jewelry.
Lazuli was designed by Gero to be weaker than Lapis in the hopes that she would prove easier to control than he was. After her modifications, Lazuli is an extraordinarily powerful individual, stronger than the Super Saiyans Vegeta, Son Goku, and Future Trunks before their training in the Room of Spirit and Time, as well as being stronger than both Son Goten and Present Trunks. Upon further training for the Tournament of Power, she was easily able to fight the Pride Trooper Cocotte and ultimately defeated her. And she was also able to nearly single handily defeat Ribrianne, a fighter capable to matching Goku and Vegeta at their current level of power.
Due to Dr. Gero's experiments, she's possesses an infinite energy supply which allows her to fight endlessly against opponents. Her body is durable to the point she can survive a Super Saiyan Vegeta's attacks and powerful ki blast, she was able to block Trunks' sword strike, which caused it to crack.
Thanks to the restructures that Dr. Gero made on her body, she is strong enough to match and surpass the strength of both Super Saiyan Vegeta and Trunks (before their training in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber) as well as withstanding energy blasts from the former, ending with only little scratches on her body.
18 alongside 17 are awakened by Dr. Gero, who is later betrayed by them and killed by 17.. Before Trunks destroys the mountain, where Gero´s laboratory was located, she managed to take out Number 16 capsule from the affected area, finally activating the machine.
As they were heading their way to kill Gokū, Vegeta puts himself on their way and challenge them to a fight, which 18 joins. At first both fighter seens to be equal on power but it doesn´t take long for her to overpower the pride Saiyan, leaving him with some bleeding scars and breaking 1 of his arm in the process. Because of this Trunks enters in the fight to aid his father, he´s inmediately assisted by Piccolo and Tenshinhan but, unfortunately 18 and her brother proved to be stronger than them and after finishing their short encounter she, alongside the other 2 androids, leave the area and continue with their mission to find and kill Gokū.
When they arrive at Gokū´s house they notice that he is no longer there, Android 16 suggest them that Gokū might have gone to Kame-Sennin's island and so they leave to that place. At their arrival Piccolo offers them to fight in a nearby inhabited island, which they accept, 18 withness the fight between his brother and the Namekian until Cell shows up in the island. Because of the potential danger that Cell would represent if he manages to absorb both siblings, android 16 advice 18 to run away from the area, which they later do after Cell maanages to abosorb 18´s brother.
Because of Cell's new form he is faster and stronger for them to deal with him, after he knock outs and partially damage No. 16, she realise that fighting him is pointless and so she threats him of destroying herself if he tries to come closer. Before Cell could put his hands on her, Tenshinhan uses his New Kikōhō to hold Cell so that 18 and 16 could go away from the area, after Tenshinhan´s help they hide in another island. After Cell blows up different island to lure 18 out of her hiding place, by coincidence Cell and Vegeta encounter take place on the island she was hiding, and moments later Kulilin arrives at the same island and notices a hided 18 and so he tries getting closer to her to use the remote control to shut her down. 18 notices his presence once he drops the device, after that he destroys it.
After Vegeta gives Cell the chance to find 18, which he does, he goes straight to her with excitement and as a precaution he uses Taiyōken to temporaly distract anyone that could interfere and finally he absorbs 18.
18 is later regurgitated from Cell's body after Super Saiyan 2 Gohan gives him a serious beating. A short time after Cell destruction, she is transported to the Castle of God, where Dende heals her and with indifferent attitude she leaves the place. She loses the explosive device from her body along with 17, thanks to Kulilin´s wish to Shenron. She pretended to leave Castle, but had secretly returned hiding from them to eavesdrop on their conversation. When Kulilin said he wanted her to be happy with 17, she revealed that they're actually twins, suggesting she also had feelings for him, thanking him afterwards. This was later be confirmed when they married and had a daughter during the seven years of peace that followed Cell's death.

Creation and Conception
Android 18, along with her brother, Android 17, were created conceptually when Toriyama's then-editor, Kazuhiko Torishima, complained about the designs of Android 19 and Gero (Android 20), as being just as "fatso and an old man". However, when he saw 17 and 18, he said that they were "just some kids", leading Toriyama to create Cell.
- The name "Lazuli" was taken from Lapis lazuli, a precious stone with an intense color.
