Consumed By Edit
Android 18, along with her brother Android 17, were created by the scientist Dr. Gero to destroy Son Goku. They were also designed to be absorbed by and become bio-matter components of the bio-android Cell so that it may become the perfect life form.
During the Androids/Cell story arc, Android 18 and her comrades Androids 17 and 16 are confronted by Cell. Though they attempt to resist him, Cell is able to absorb Android 17 and reach his second form. Android 18 and 16 attempt to evade him, but Cell is ultimately able to track them down. Cell uses the Solar Flare technique to blind everyone around him and uses the opportunity to absorb her. Android 18 is then engulfed by his tail and absorbed into his body, allowing him to finally reach his perfect form.
Android 18 is later spit up by Cell after he receives a devastating attack from Son Gohan.
- Although it does fit into the category of Swallowed Whole, Android 18 is devoured once again in the Majin Buu story arc of Dragon Ball Z when she is turned into chocolate and eaten by Majin Buu.
