  • Trivia[edit | edit source]

    • The Cyborg is biomechanical and not a robot (true to the name "Cyborg"), as skin can be seen in his hands and face. This is more easy to notice in his old sprite.
    • Desktop VersionConsole Version Along with the Traveling Merchant and the Zoologist, the Cyborg is one of the only NPCs that sells a post-Moon Lord item (the Portal Gun Station).
    • 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 A.N.D.Y may also be a reference to Eureka, in which a robotic sheriff is a supporting character.
    • The name T-3E0 is most likely a reference to C-3PO, a humanoid robot character from the American epic space-opera media franchise Star Wars.
    • The name Niner-7 may be a reference to the character Seven of Nine from the American science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager.
    • The name Fender could be a reference to a robot character of the same name in Futurama.
    • His quote "My expedition efficiency was critically reduced when a projectile impacted my locomotive actuator." is a reference to the popular "Arrow in the Knee" quote from the action role-playing video game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, where a guard tells the player: "I used to be an adventurer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee."
      • The Zoologist shares a similar quote to the reference above.
    • The quote "This sentence is false, or is it?" references a common logical paradox often associated with robots.
    • His quote "<Name of Tavernkeep> said I reminded him of a certain "EV2". Perhaps I should meet her." is a reference to the character EV2 in Dungeon Defenders 2.
    • On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, he is summoned by the Queen Statue even though he is not female.
    • Desktop version In the source files of the game, it is found that the Cyborg's light on his head is off when his party hat is on: Cyborg (without light).png
    • His quote "So that 'punk' lookin' chick is an inventor, eh? I think I could show her a thing or two!" might suggest that he has some interest in the Steampunker.
      • Because this quote suggests he doesn't know the Steampunker already, it conflicts with a piece of lore, since the Cyborg's Bestiary entry states that he was created by the Mechanic and the Steampunker.
      • However, the Cyborg does not directly say that he knows the Mechanic either, meaning that there may be no memories of the event for him.
    • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Cyborg: "The Cyborg was built with the combined efforts of the Mechanic and the Steampunker to aid in rocket science and world defense."
