Is 'Dragon Ball Super' Looking To Get Rid of Androids 17 and 18 Next?

After Universe 4's elimination, the final three universes are beginning to square off in Dragon Ball Super's Tournament of Power. But as Universe 3 is about to take the form of a giant behemoth, fans have been wondering whether or not every member of Universe 7 is going to survive the confrontation.

Fans of the series have theorized the final stage of the Tournament of Power will be a 3-on-3 battle between Universe 7 and 11, but that leaves no room for Android 17 and 18.

The preview for the next episode, Episode 121, there's a tease for an all out attack from every member of Universe 7, including its most stubborn member Freeza. But breaking down the preview even further, Goku specifically calls out for Freeza and Vegeta.

The preview also teases a precarious situation for Android 17, who is seen falling down as rocks crumble around him. But could the Androids be the next elimination? If fans are correct in theorizing that the finals will involve a 3-on-3 battle, the most fans want to see in are Freeza, Vegeta, and Goku.

Android 17 and 18 have had their fair share of great moments in the Tournament of Power, and the writing may be on the wall much like the other members of Universe 7 had great moments to go out on. But even then, there's still Gohan in the mix and it still remains to be seen when or if he'll be eliminated as well. Given how involved he's been with Universe 3, he could also be next as well as they could focus their attack on him.

Dragon Ball Super's “Universal Survival” arc is part of the recent simulcast agreement that sites like Crunchyroll and Funimation have scored. DragonBall Super airs on Crunchyroll Saturday evenings at 7:15 p.m. CST. Adult Swim airs the English dub during its Toonami block Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m, and is now available to stream on FunimationNOW and Amazon Video.


If you want to catch up with the English dub, the first 39 episodes of Dragon Ball Super are now available to stream on FunimationNOW, Crunchyroll's VRV service, and available to purchase on Amazon Video. The 39 episodes span the full range of what has aired in the North America and covers the "Battle of Gods" arc, "Revival of F" arc, and the most recently ended "Universe 6" arc.

Funimation has previously announced the rest of the series will soon be available on the service as well. Releasing in 13 episode batches two weeks after the last episode airs on Cartoon Network, fans of Dragon Ball Super's English dub without a cable connection will soon have a way to experience the series.
