 Plot Involvement
 Dragonball Z
Garlic Jr., Trunks, & Android Sagas
Android 19 first appears along with Android 20, attacking a city in search of Goku and the other Z Fighters. Accompanied by Dr Gero, the first fighter to find them is Yamcha, who Dr Gero almost kills before Piccolo, Tien and Goku catch up. For the most part, Android 19 lets Android 20 take control of the situation. The group of them agree to fly into the wilderness away from crowded city to fight, Goku says he will fight first as they are after him anyway so finally Android 19 gets a chance to do something. The fight seems reasonably well matched, even with Goku as a Super Saiyan. However, 19 begins to get the upper hand when Goku begins to suffer from his disease of the heart, causing him to weaken. 19 has beaten to the point where he is about to kill him when they are unexpectedly interrupted by Vegeta, who shows up out of no where. Vegeta takes over the fight, showing off his new ability to turn into a Super Saiyan. The Android tries to absorb Vegeta's energy but is unable to as Vegeta tears off both his hands, effectively disabling him. Despite trying to make a run for it, Vegeta doesn't spare the Android and destroys him completely with a Big Bang Attack.
