Gevo (ゲボ),[3] code name Gold,[1] is an elite Red Ribbon Army soldier and the son of the Red Ribbon Army head scientist Dr. Gero and Vomi. He is the template for Android 16.

Concept and Creation

He was first mentioned in an interview with the Dragon Ball manga series author, Akira Toriyama, in one of the Dragon Ball Full Color Androids Saga volumes.


Gevo is identical in appearance to Android 16.


Gevo is described as being ruthless, bold, and daring during life.[1]



Gevo was a high-ranking Red Ribbon soldier code-named Gold. He fell to an enemy's bullet. In his affection, Dr. Gero modeled a powerful Android after him, Android 16. As he did not want to risk him being destroyed in battle, Gero deliberately programmed the Android to be non-aggressive.[4]
