Although Android 17 is one of the Season 1 DLC fighters for Dragon Ball FighterZ, he’s often regarded as one of the game’s weaker characters. On our community voted tier list, you’ll find that Android 17 is ranked as the 34th best character in the game — better known as dead last.
Ironically, this character is known as the “MVP of Universe 7” due to his contributions to the Tournament of Power arc for Dragon Ball Super. Impressions so far suggest that he won’t be the MVP of anyone’s team during tournament level gameplay.
That is until YogaFlame24 uploaded a video that highlights a player using Android 17 as an integral part of their team. This player is known as Axeice.
According to YogaFlame24, this particular player even received compliments from FOX|SonicFox himself. Supposedly, his opinions of Android 17 have shifted after playing matches against Axeice.
His other two team members are Goku Black and Android 21. It’s a very unique and unorthodox team.
Here’s a quick sequence of him whiffing an attack then immediately baiting the opponent to attack his shield. As a result of his impressive read, he was able to snap back another character that tried to regenerate lost hit points.
