Trivia

  • The characters recruited through the "recruit him" option and the charged COOL IT!!! option are not the same. Picking "recruit him" gives you a character who has a random name, is always male and always starts with 0 Mechanical. He will also be holding a Wrench. Using COOL IT generates an entire new character, who always has the name "Stranded Man", but does not have any preset stats or weapons.
