Dragon Ball Wiki
This article is about the location. For the chapter with the same name, see Dr. Gero's Laboratory.

Dr. Gero's Lab[2] (ドクター·ゲロの研究所 Dokutā· Gero no Kenkyūjo) is where Dr. Gero took refuge after the defeat of the Red Ribbon Army and where he conducted all of his research on Goku, which led to his creation of the Androids, in the hopes of avenging himself and the army. It is located in one of the Northern Mountains surrounding North City.

It is revealed in Dragon Ball FighterZ that Gero had numerous identical labs, all located in similar looking hard to find areas.



Inside Dr. Gero's laboratory

The front door of the primary laboratory is a heavy steel double door, which is very high in resilience. Inside, the Shut Down Remote that disables the Androids in case of a rebellion is placed next to the door. The capsules which contain Android 19, Android 18, and Android 17 are lined up against the wall, while Android 16's capsule lays on the middle of the floor. The lab also contains a basement, where a supercomputer is placed and programmed to finish the creation of Cell.

In Dragon Ball Z: Super Android 13!, the supercomputer in Dr. Gero's lab completed Android 15, Android 14, and Android 13 after Gero's death, whereas they had been destroyed by Gero in the main timeline long before due to being failures.

In the present timeline, the lab is destroyed by Future Trunks in his attempt to prevent Android 18 and Android 17 from activating Android 16, but to no avail. The basement is later destroyed by Future Trunks and Krillin to prevent the completion of Present Cell, with Trunks only delaying destroying it in order to retrieve blueprints of Dr. Gero on Android 17. In the future timeline, Future Android 17 and Future Android 18 destroy the lab after they killed Future Dr. Gero one night, but the basement survives and Future Cell is completed.
