    So after seeing the character FAQs build up for this game, I thought it
    would be good to start my own on my best character - 17.
    
    This is my first FAQ, and I plan on updating it whenever. There may be some
    things I don't know or have forgotten to put in in this FAQ, so if you find
    anything that you think I should put in e-mail me.
    
    Now, without further adu, I present to you the Android 17 FAQ.

    (_____________________________Android 17___________________________)
    ____________________________________________________________________
    |PROFILE: Android 17 was originally created by Dr. Gero. Created   |
    |-------- primarily to kill Goku, Androids 17 and 18 were also the |
    |keys necessary to making Cell complete.                           |
    |								   |
    |He was formerly a delinquent boy, but he was taken against his    |
    |will and reconstructed into an android along with 18. Naturally,  |
    |he hates Dr. Gero, and after being activated in the lab, he wasted|
    |no time in taking his revenge.                                    |
    |								   |
    |With his limitless power supply,Android 17 is capable of a variety|
    |energy attacks. He can also use his specialty, a powerful android |
    |barrier, to deflect attacks from his opponents.                   |
    |__________________________________________________________________| 
    
    1. How do I unlock Android 17?
    You don't. As soon as you start playing the game, 17 is already on the roster.
    
    2. What role did Android 17 play in the Dragon Ball Z Anime series?
    He was an evil android created by Dr. Gero to get revenge on Goku. In 17's
    character profile, it said he was actually once human. The last you see of
    17 in the Z series is in an episode specifically titled "Say Goodbye, 17",
    where he is absorbed by Cell after being weakened in a battle with Piccolo. 
    He is revived when Shenron grants the wish of everyone who is killed by 
    Cell to come back. He leads a peaceful life after that, avoiding Goku and 
    the others. The last time you see him in Dragon Ball Z is when he helps Goku 
    form a spirit bomb to defeat Kid Buu.
    He is seen again in Dragon Ball GT, where another 17 comes to fuse
    with him to make Super 17. 
    
    3. Where do you play as him/against him in the game?
    In Trunks' story you get to fight him as Gohan and Trunks. In the Android Saga
    you have a few battles against him, and also one battle where you play as him 
    on Piccolo's side to fight Cell. In Future Trunks series you will also have 
    to fight him again. Then, finally, in the Super 17 saga you have a couple 
    battles against him as Trunks and 18.
    
    4. What advantages/disadvantages is there to using 17?
    Advantages:
    Good speed
    Automatically charges
    Good moveset
    Fast melee
    Rushing range is great
    
    Disadvantages:
    You cannot charge with L2 until all yellow bars are full.
    MAX Attack isn't all that accurate.
    
    5. What are some good potaras for 17?
    Bulma's Support
    Dragon Homing +1/+2
    Gero's Lab Data
    Gravity Device
    Magic Beast Yakon
    Majin Seal
    MAX Power Plus
    Perfect Stance
    Turtle Stone
    
    6. What costumes are there for 17 and how many?
    There are only two costumes - one is the original outfit that was shown in the
    Anime and the second is a tan one remixed with warmer colors.
    
    7. What is the Android 17 lvl. 160 Password?
    [Note: Do NOT e-mail me telling me these passwords don't work. If none of them 
    work for you, you simply aren't putting them in right]
    You can use any of the p/ws below:
    -a$ba zhkf eLGK f(yU fnW? U+If F-y? DRr%
    -hDSh vPLT RiwG d)T! +fw- ebxU b@jN Cefk

    (___________________________Spec. Attacks__________________________)
    
    Welcome to the Special Attacks section of the guide. This one will be a little
    different then the last section - I will explain each attack, and how to use
    them to your advantage. I hope that this section will prove the most useful, as
    17's Spec. attacks are definately savvy for any situation in any battle!
    ____________________________________________________________________
    
    BLAST 1
    
    Android Barrier
    L2 + Circle
    Costs 1 Blast Stock
    Damage: 170
    Description: This is an attack that allows you to block any projectiles,
    rushes, or melee attacks of any kind. Use it whenever necessary, it's very
    helpful to block B2's and UB's with it.
    
    Finish Sign
    L2 + Up + Circle
    Costs 1 Blast Stock
    Damage: 0
    Description: This attack gives you a boost of power. It stays in effect until
    you use a Blast/Spec. attack. Use it when you want to finish an opponent off
    with melee or you don't have too many energy bars at the time.
    
    BLAST 2
    
    Full Power Energy Ball
    L2 + Triangle
    Uses 3 Ki Guage Bars
    Damage: 9000-11020
    Description: This attack sends out 2 energy balls at the enemy. Can deal a good
    amount of damage. Use it whenever you get someone in the air so that they can't
    defend themselves when you use it.
    
    Delta Combination
    L2 + Up + Triangle
    Uses 2 Ki Guage Bars
    Damage: 9020 - 11060
    Description: Android 17's rush attack! :D !! This powerful attack is what makes
    him more useful then other androids (maybe besides 13, who also has a decent
    rush B2). With just a 2 Ki Bar cost, it is easy to take advantage of. I might
    add also that this attack has a great range, and can pretty much tackle to any
    opponent as long as they're in sight range on the stage.
    
    ULTIMATE BLAST
    
    Full Power Energy Wave
    [In MAX POWER mode]
    L2 + Down + Triangle
    Uses 4 Ki Gauge Bars
    Damage: 12500-12740
    Description: Ok, so this is not that accurate. You'd have to have a stupid
    opponent or have someone close enough for this to hit - but if it does, it's a
    doozy of an attack! Good luck with it.
