Dragon Ball, DB Z, DB GT/Cell Saga, Androids


Why didn't Android 18 help 17 fight cell before 16 stepped in after picolo died..she just watched

That's simply not the way Toriyama wrote the manga. It would have made sense for her to help. But it was the same reason 17 didn't help Piccolo fight Cell before he nearly killed him, and also the same reason why 16 didn't help either of them before 17 was just on the verge of being absorbed. It can be confusing sometimes, but it's just the creator's way of building drama.

Thanks for the question!
