Episode 127 of "Dragon Ball Super" is one of the most unforgettable episodes of the anime. Many fans were surprised when the well-loved android-turned-human popularly known as Android 17 was killed. His contribution to the success of Universe 7 in the Tournament of Power was so significant and without him, the surviving Saiyans will definitely have a hard time defeating their opponent. However, fans could not let his death pass without dissecting the details. Most believe that the fighter's "self-destruct" that took his life is not possible.

Others think that the team behind the popular anime series, especially Akira Toriyama could have forgotten about the wish that was made by one of the Z fighters during "Dragon Ball Z."

Backtracking to the Z-era

The latest episode of "Dragon Ball Super" is linked by most of the fans to the events that happened in "Dragon Ball Z." This is the reason why many fans believe that Android 17's death is an error.

Some fans say that the brain of the popular series, the legendary Akira Toriyama could have forgotten about what happened during the Z-era. It is worth noting that Krillin made a wish [VIDEO] to the dragon balls to remove the explosives in the body of both Android 17 and Android 18. There is no way that 17 could trigger this button and self-destruct. In addition, Son Goku also made a wish to revive all the dead beings with good hearts. This means that aside from the removal of the explosives in the bodies of the androids, they became human beings. This was evidenced in their lives in the current anime. Android 18 is married to Krillin and has a child. 17 had also raised his own family and has kids too.

Other perspectives

While the arguments about Toriyama forgetting about Krillin and Goku's wish is very acceptable, there is another way that 17's self-destruct is possible.

During Majin Buu and Vegeta's battle [VIDEO], the Prince unleashed massive power that totally destroyed him as well. The same could happen to the android turned human. It is highly likely that the energy he unleashed to fight Jiren the Gray's fierce onslaught and his barrier to protect Son Goku and Vegeta destroyed him.

Meanwhile, Episode 128 of "Dragon Ball Super" is scheduled to air on February 18. It is titled "Noble Pride To the End, Vegeta Falls." It will feature Vegeta's battle against the strongest Pride Trooper, Jiren the Gray. Many fans are expecting that the Prince of All Saiyans will be eliminated in the upcoming episode as he faces Universe 11's fighter.
