* {{Expy}}: For Rusty Venture from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. Not only do Dr. 0 and Dr. Venture share the same voice actor - and yes, Urbaniak makes sure to use the same voice and inflections - but but similar personalities as well. Both are inventors of dubious competence with a deep inferiority complex towards a superior scientist (Mr. House and Jonas Jr. respectively) as well as drug habits (Mentats for 0 and "diet pills" for Rusty). With the "Wild Wasteland" perk, you can find a "Walking Eye" in one of 0's old labs. Rusty invented a Walking Eye on the show.

The fact that [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter House is arguably the better (or at least more famous) roboticist]] is the reason that 0 loathes him.
** There are also scattered signs that he is reasonably adept, if imperfect, at mimicking cybernetic accomplishments, including the Securitrons, and the X-13 lab that bears a few of his metaphorical thumbprints.
* [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Name With A 0]]: He has long since given up on correcting people on his name. [[SeriousBusiness With a high enough Intelligence]] you can tell him to put a slash through the zero and he will ''praise you as a genius''. And when he finally stands up to [[spoiler:Dr. Klein at the end, he mentions the slash, which Klein ''also'' thinks is a stroke of genius.]]
