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

Dragon Ball Online
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.
