    Except in the original Dragon Ball there were lower number androids built by Dr Gero, like that Frankenstein one and shit, can't remember his number, 6 maybe?

    If I recall correctly, #17 also wondered, after #16 explained that he's 100% machine, why Gero went back to using humans as a basis even though he had the means to create cyborgs without using them.

    There we have it then. No idea why 16 was stronger.

    Gonna go ahead and second that 18 was hot and gets the D. She fucking sucked as an actress though. Imo Bulma and 17 were the only two who delivered their lines well.

    Good question, maybe it had something to do with their power, as the focus on #17's power is cited as a reason for his disobedience.
    Perhaps Gero went completely overboard with #16, tried to switch to a human-basis to make the cyborgs obedient while retaining most of the power (which failed spectacularly), then went back to the 100% machine model and deliberately made them weaker so they would actually listen to him.

    16 was actually an attempt to revive his dead son, which is why he gave him "a heart". He probably never activated it for emotional reasons.

    Since 16 was fully mechanical, his power was incredible but static. 17 and 18 were partially human and could train to become stronger, potentially eclipsing 16 if they were left alive. 19 was supposed to be the strongest of them all (sans-Cell) with his energy-absorbing capabilities and "proper" obedient personality.

    Gero wasn't even in Dragonball lol. They threw him in dbz then went back and was like "oh yea he was part of the red ribbon army"

    Can't think too hard into the plot because you're going to find inconsistencies and shit writing everywhere. Just gotta enjoy it for what it is lol

    Was pretty good for a non profit amateur production.
