Dragonball Z Cosplay Quickie: Dr. Gero | Android 20 (Unknown) Cosplay 21 AUG 2012

The 2012 incarnation of the Osaka Nippon Bashi Street Festa yielded this particular cosplay gem from an unknown Japanese cosplayer, depicting Dragonball Z’s sinister Dr. Gero of the Red Ribbon Army.

Dr. Gero, also known as Android 20, is a brilliant scientist who is the mastermind behind the Red Ribbon Army, a paramilitary crime organization. After the army’s defeat at the hands of Goku, Gero retreated to his mountain laboratory to plot his revenge with his Artificial Humans series. Not until he reached Android 19 did he create an obedient, bloodthirsty servant. Gero then had #19 transplant his brain into an android body, thus turning himself into Android 20 and preventing him from dying of old age. After his second defeat at the hands of the Z Fighters, Gero retreated to his lab to activate Androids 17 and 18, who rebelled, with Android 17 killing the doctor. Though Gero died, he left behind Android 13, Android 14, Android 15, as well as his ultimate creation: Cell.
