Dragon Ball Wiki

Android 9 is a fully artificial android model constructed by Dr. Gero.

Two incarnations of Android 9 appear across different media: Iyo-ku-gō in Dragon Ball SD and Project: Red in Dragon Ball Online.

Concept and Creation

The Android 9 in SD: Iyo-ku-gō's name is a play on the name of the V-Jump Editor-in-Chief's name.


Project Red's schematics

Android 9 was an entirely mechanical Android constructed by Dr. Gero at some point following the Red Ribbon Army's defeat but possessed a problem and so was destroyed.[2]

Other Dragon Ball stories

Dragon Ball SD

In Dragon Ball SD, Android 9 is an Android version of Akio Iyoku labeled as "Iyo-ku-gō", Gero sends him to battle kid Goku - who easily defeats him.

Dragon Ball Online

Android 9, an artificial replica of Commander Red

In Dragon Ball Online, Android 9, codenamed "Project: Red", was rebuilt by the Red Pants Army as Project: Red, and is fought in the ruins of the Red Ribbon Army Headquarters located near Korin Tower. He is much larger than his template, to the extent of towering over the main character by a head's length, ironically fulfilling his template's wish to be taller in a sense. He also seems to be wearing some sort of ceremonial scarf adorned with Red Ribbon logos.



When he appears in Dragon Ball SD, Iyo-ku-gō is easily defeated by Kid Goku.

Video Games

Project: Red is capable of taking on the Youth prior to them achieving their race's transformation.

He is not as powerful as fellow Mechanical-type modeled after a human template Android 16.[3][4]
