Self Destruct Device () is a Self Destruction technique used by Android 16. This technique was originally intended to be used against Goku.


The user sneaks behind their opponent, grabbing them and then detonating the bomb inside their chest. According to Bulma when she discovered it, the destructive output of the technique was comparable to that of a nuclear bomb going off.


Android 16 attempted to use this technique on Cell but was unable to due to Bulma and Dr. Brief removing the bomb from his body. Krillin, who had overheard the conversation earlier, attempted to warn him that it wouldn't work, but was ultimately too late to do so, leading to Cell blasting Android 16's body to shreds.
