Sadistic 18 (サディスティック18 Sadisutikku 18) is a Rush Attack used by Android 18.


As she says, "I'll enjoy this", Android 18 charges at the opponent and punches them up into the air. Then, she flies after the opponent to elbow them in their face and roundhouse kick their arm (the kick being referred to as the Arm Breaker in the Dragon Ball Z Collectible Card Game), before sweep kicking them. Next, she grabs the opponent by their leg and throws them down to the ground, where she teleports beside them and kicks them in the stomach. Finally, Android 18 shouts "It's over!" as she turns around to blast the opponent with a yellow Finger Beam, inflicting a massive amount of damage.

Android 18 throws Vegeta into Future Trunks

Future Android 18 utilized the finger beam portion of the attack on the only known survivor of one of their attacks just before Future Gohan arrived to confront her and her brother in what was ultimately his final battle in life. In this case, however, she doesn't even bother to turn around to fire the beam.

Android 18 uses most of her hits in this attack during her battle against Super Saiyan Vegeta and the Dragon Team. Android 18 manages to outclass Vegeta, break his arm with a kick similar to the one she uses as part of the attack and Android 18 then throws Vegeta on Future Trunks, using the attack's throw part. Android 18 also uses the attack's final kick on Vegeta when he struggles to get up.

In Granolah the Survivor Saga, Vegeta performs a similar move on Goku for interrupting his fight with Granolah.[2]

In Dragon Ball GT, Android 18 uses the kick during her fight with Android 17 after he kills Krillin.

Film Appearances[]

In Dragon Ball Z: Bio-Broly, Android 18 uses the kick against a Bio-Warrior.

In Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks, while Future 18 grows bored of watching her brother destroy buildings, an injured man crawls out of some nearby rubble, but Future 18 hears him and kills him with the finger beam. Future 18 also uses the attack's final kick against Future Trunks.

Android 18 performs Sadistic 18 in Raging Blast

"Sadistic 18" was named in the Budokai Tenkaichi series and is Android 18's Ultimate Blast. In Budokai Tenkaichi and Budokai Tenkaichi 2, the attack originally included slaps and knee strikes. This was later fixed in Budokai Tenkaichi 3. The attack also appears as her ultimate move in the Raging Blast series, and one of her super attacks in Ultimate Tenkaichi.

Sadistic 18 is also used as Future Android 18's Super Attack in Dokkan Battle.

In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, 18 breaks Vegeta's right arm rather than his left. This is because Vegeta is facing 18 rather than being on the side or behind her.
