Android 17 elbows Piccolo

Android 17 uses this attack during his second battle against Piccolo. After Piccolo refuses to tell where Goku is hiding, Android 17 decides to use force and slowly flies over to Piccolo. The two have a stare down, and Android 17 suddenly attacks Piccolo with the "Now We're Playing for Keeps!" rush, though Piccolo manages to dodge Android 17's last two hits by somersaulting away. Piccolo praises Android 17's speed, but remarks that Goku's punches are harder.
