Android 21 (Lab Coat) (人造人間２１号 (白衣), Jinzōningen Nijūichi-Gō (Hakui)) is an important character of the story mode for Dragon Ball FighterZ, where her evil half, in her true Majin form is a playable main antagonist of the game's storyline. She is a new character design created by Akira Toriyama himself for this specific game.
After being announced as a downloadable fighter at the Japanese Dragon Ball World Championship Finals in December 18, 2021, she fights in her "base form", and is an original, similar to her DLC appearance in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. She was released on February 24, 2022.
Android 21 Appears as a mysterious new android who is somehow connected to Android 16. In her default form, she's a young woman with long, bushy hair, who wears glasses and is supposedly as smart as Dr. Gero, perhaps even more so. She, like the Majin creature she was based on, has the ability to turn her opponents into any form of edible material. Her lust to feed drives her to absolute insanity at times. In the Android 21 Arc, after she eats Cell, her evil side's skin color turns purple, with dark purple spots. While this part of her runs rampant, the good-natured side of her soul was split off, and a 'Good' Android 21 was created. This version of her is only playable in the Android Arc of Story Mode.
- She is the only female character to be an another variant of initial variant of her playable form, in this case, her true Majin form; as well as the only alternate variant character whose species is neither a Saiyan, fusion form whose half is a Saiyan, nor having stolen Saiyan body.
- Although this is 21's "Base Form", she is not listed as "Android 21", due to not being her true form.
- This is the second time her "Base Form" is a playable DLC since Xenoverse 2.
