Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Along with the Traveling Merchant, the Cyborg is the only NPC that sells something post-Moon Lord (Portal Gun Station), making him the only town NPC to sell an end-game item.
- Almost all of the Cyborg's names are letters in the Greek alphabet. Naming robots and cyborgs with Greek letters is common in science fiction.
- The names Syn-x and A.N.D.Y. are likely references to Re-Logic lead developers Whitney "Cenx" Spinks and Andrew "Redigit" Spinks.
- The name T-3E0 is most likely a reference to the Star Wars droid, C-3P0.
- The name Niner-7 may be a reference to the character Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager.
- The name Fender is a reference to the 2005 movie Robots.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
- My expedition efficiency was critically reduced when a projectile impacted my locomotive actuator. (This is a reference to the popular "Arrow in the Knee" quote from the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, where a guard tells you: “I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.”)
- And then Unit 492-8 said, "Who do you think I am, Unit 472-6?" HA HA HA
- I built myself a taste mechanism, so I can drink some ale!
- Have you defeated the Wall of <name of Guide>? (Reference to the rumor that the Guide is really the Wall of Flesh)
- This sentence is false , or is it? (A common logical paradox often associated with robots).
- Sometimes I come off a bit... Get it? a bit?
- Sure, me and [Name of Pirate] are pals, but I hate it when his parrot does his business on me. That stuff's corrosive! (Only if Pirate is present)
- So that "punk" lookin' chick is an inventor, eh? I think I could show her a thing or two! (Only if Steampunker is present)
