It's realy confusing how Dragon Ball Z used the term Android, technicaly only 16 and 19 are real Androids, 17 and 18 would by Cyborgs, Dr. Gero would probably a Cyborg too since he still has a Organic Brain, and Cell would be some kind of Replicant, if I'm not wrong.
Not sure about 21 yet because we don't know her full story yet.

yah, you are correct about the terms, byakko explained why things are what they are.

Not for nothing, calling them Cyborg 17 and Cyborg 18 doesn't have the same ring as Android 17/18.  And Artificial Human is even worse to be repeating over and over.  Though I think it would have been better for them to just switch over to saying Number 18 and such after the Cell saga was all done and over. (Written as #18)  I mean, they had the episode in Z even explaining that they're not actual androids in the tournament where Shin first appears.

Or, you know, just use their actual names Lapis and Lazuli, considering they're not undergoing some post-cyberization trauma about no longer being human and just want to be called by their tags.

weren't the names Lapi and Lazuli invented much more recently, way after the manga ended ? I think I heard about it around the BoG movie, is that right ? And by that time everyone (in the English speaking community) was long used to calling them Android 18 etc. In French they're called C18/C17 for cyborg. Then again C16 isn't a cyborg either (and neither was C8 all the way back in Dragon Ball, I'm not sure what they did at the time) but at least that's less noticeable. Either way it's the translation's fault. In Japan they're "artificial humans" and people just call them "number 18/17" (juu hachi gou, juu nana gou).
That would be the most logical, but calling someone "number something" would probably be weird in English. I think they did try that a few times in the French dub but that shit never really had any guideline.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Cell is a good comparison; this reminds me of all those tioems in db topic when we talk how db androids are not like scifi androids as dragon ball is originally japanese and the word for android was enver used by toriyama and how that word in other works (such as nest clones from kof) gets more ro less trasnalted to artificial humans.

It's realy confusing how Dragon Ball Z used the term Android, technicaly only 16 and 19 are real Androids, 17 and 18 would by Cyborgs, Dr. Gero would probably a Cyborg too since he still has a Organic Brain, and Cell would be some kind of Replicant, if I'm not wrong.

Not sure about 21 yet because we don't know her full story yet.
An "android" isn't necesarily an automata or robot, it just has to be a human-like synthetic organism. Cell is as much of android as 8, 16 and 19, even though he's never really called one (and Blade Runner's replicants are androids too).

17, 18 and Doctor Gero aren't really androids, but considering Gero made the sibling  as a branch of his android research and as a stepping stone towards Cell it makes sense from his perspective to lump them with the androids and keep the numbering.

and then there's that novels where silicon based lifeforms (aliens) make carbon based mining mchines/robots and pretyt much destroy humanity because they think we are soem shitty carbon based machinery the realt living being left abandoned in earth.

Just walking out of the store with my copy
The guy told me they got an internal confirmation that the first dlc char was going to be Broly, and most likely around early March, a month after release so people can finish the story mode.
Okay.

Okay, just tested it on my steam, Butter smooth at 5K resolution with 60fps on max setting.
The only 2 fighting game I play are Street Fighter and Versus series. DBFZ is a little confusing with only 1 button combo. :S

Couple of shots in 5k Glory,
