Android No. 21 (人造人間21号, Jinzōningen Nijūichi-Gō; Literally meaning "Artificial Human No. 21") is an intelligent scientist and an Android for the Red Ribbon Army. She is the main antagonist of Dragon Ball FighterZ.


No. 21 exudes the aura of a soft-spoken, and shy woman.[3] Despite this, once she reveals her malicious nature, her demeanor changes entirely. Furthermore, much like Gokū Black, she has a habit of making food comparisons.[4]

Creation and Conception

Toriyama's No.21 Sketch

Toyotarō's draft of No.21.

Akira Toriyama came up with the design for No. 21 based on a framework predesigned by Namco Bandai, such as her gender and personality.[6] No. 21 was designed by Toriyama, Bandai, and Arc System Works to correct the imbalance of male to female fighters — a female villain who can compete with someone like Gokū.[7]
