Throughout Dragon Ball, we"ve seen a lot of villains turn from a villain into an ally, though none of them were quite like Android 18.

18 and her brother, Android 17 seemed hell bent on destroying everything in their path, but when 18 came across Krillin, she and the other Androids spared him. 18 then gave Krillin a kiss on the cheek for luck before walking away.

Though Krillin was scared out of his mind during this moment, the kiss still sparked something within him. From then on, Krillin developed a crush on Android 18, despite the fact that she was a murderer. Android 18 sparing Krillin"s life and kissing him is what started their entire relationship, which is kind of a cute story to tell the grandkids.


From the moment that Krillin received that terrifying kiss, he was smitten. Though we didn"t know about Krillin"s growing feelings right away, he definitely had a crush on the blonde android.

When Krillin was given the chance to use the device against Android 18, he hesitated - perhaps because he saw the good in her, or perhaps just because he liked her. Whatever it was, he destroyed the remote instead.
