Hell Fighter 17 makes his debut in "A Dangerous Union", the 42nd episode of Dragon Ball GT, which premiered on April 16, 1997.
A joint effort between Dr. Gero and Dr. Myuu, Hell Fighter 17 was designed to locate his android counterpart Android 17 and fuse with him, becoming Super 17. He is essentially identical to Android 17, but by this point the real 17 has acquired a brown jacket. Prior to his fusing with Android 17, he fought Vegeta in his base form and was promptly beaten. Vegeta is initially unimpressed with Hell Fighter 17's power level until Dr. Myuu and Gero reveal that 17 is using only half of his strength. Followed closely by the Z Fighters, the true Android 17 arrives and the two merge into Super 17.
- Flight – The ability to fly without the use of ki.
- Cellular complementary build similar to that of the original Android 17. This allows him to telepathically communicate with and override/brainwash the cyborg, as well as fuse with him to become one super fighting machine.
- Theoretically, he should have the same individual powers as Android 17.
- Japanese Dub: Shigeru Nakahara

- This is Dr. Gero's second co-creation, the first one being Android 8.
