No Match for the Androids (誰にも奴らを止められない... Z戦士全滅か!?, Darenimo Yatsura wo Tomerarenai... Zetto Senshi Zenmetsu ka!?) is the eleventh episode of the Androids Saga and the one hundred thirty-sixth overall episode in the uncut Dragon Ball Z series. The episode first aired on April 22, 1992. Its original American air date was September 28, 2000.
The episode begins with Future Trunks attacking Android 18 with his sword, but she blocks the attack and in doing so chips Future Trunks' sword. Android 17 then enters the fray and gives Future Trunks a beating. Tien Shinhan and Piccolo also enter the battle but Android 17 takes care of both the Z Fighters and has Tien in a headlock. Vegeta then tries to attack 17 but 18 grabs his foot firmly so he will not get away. When Future Trunks regains consciousness and tries to attack 18, she throws Vegeta right at Future Trunks, knocking both Super Saiyans out. Krillin is looking on in shock when he spots Android 16 who is enjoying the beauty of the nature around him.
Piccolo comes out to help the ailing Tien from the grip of Android 17, but Android 17 knocks Piccolo out. At the same time Vegeta refuses to give up with another blast but he pays for it as Android 18 easily deflects it, and elbows him in the face, knocking him to the ground. Vegeta is still persistent and tries to get up again, only to get kicked in the chin by 18. Her powerful kick sends him flying away to the ground. 18 then jumps into the air and lands hard on Vegeta's tailbone. She then lands next to him. Vegeta tries to get up again, but 18 kicks him in the stomach, right back to the ground. 18 then steps on Vegeta's arm and presses down which breaks it. Vegeta screams in pain and reverts back to his regular form, but unconscious. 17 then notices that Vegeta's hair changed color. 18 says that his glow has faded too, and is the same way for Future Trunks. The two wonder who Future Trunks is, as they have no files on him, but in the end they do not really care. Krillin (the only one left standing) is greeted by the Androids. Android 17 sees that Krillin is nervous, and explains that they (the Androids) are only after Goku and not anyone else. 18 then asks 17 why he did not ask Krillin where Goku was, but then he explains that it would be fun to find him themselves. 18 then winks at Krillin, telling him goodbye.
Gohan is approaching his father's house when Bulma tells him that Trunks needs to be changed so to head to Capsule Corporation. Gohan is sad to leave his father behind but knows he will come back for him later.
Back at the Mountain Road, the Androids plan to go to a more populated area. 18 adds that she wants to replace her torn up clothes. As they are about to head off, Krillin runs up to the and tries to reason with the Androids that Goku had done nothing to them and that going after him would be morally wrong. Android 17 then explains to Krillin that finding Goku is a game. Android 16 also said that he was programmed to kill Goku. 17 then tells Krillin to stop worrying about Goku, and give his beaten friends some Senzu Beans. Before they leave, Android 18 walks up to Krillin and kisses him on the cheek, whispering to him good luck and telling him goodbye. The three then fly off in search of Goku.
