Machine Impact (マシンインパクト Mashin Inpakuto) is a Rush Attack used by Android 16.


Android 16 crouches down and produces a white aura around himself, and then he charges at the opponent and knocks them down, inflicting a great deal of damage.


Android 16 uses this attack during his battle against Cell. After Android 16 interrupts Imperfect Cell's absorption of Android 17, he charges toward Imperfect Cell with a barrage of punches and kicks, which the latter manages to dodge. When they both land on the ground, Imperfect Cell and Android 16 collide with each other with the Bio Impact and Machine Impact rush attacks respectively.
