    Hell Fighter 17 makes his debut in "A Dangerous Union", the 42nd episode of Dragon Ball GT, which premiered on April 16, 1997.



    Hell Fighter 17 and Android 17 ready to fuse

    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.
