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, the Cyborg is the only NPC that sells a post-Moon Lord item (the 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 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.
  • 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 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
