* VocalDissonance: Rabbit's appearance is decidedly feminine, with huge fake eyelashes and a poofy skirt. However, she can sing in a baritone range almost as easily as The Spine can.

* '''Upgrade''' (Erin Burke) was the only female robot in the group before January 2014. She left the band in 2011 to further pursue an acting career. Though her parts were [[OrwellianRetcon removed from "Album One"]] and her character was considered to no longer be canon after she left the band, she returned along with the other former robots for the January 2017 reunion show.

* '''The Jon''' (Jon Sprague) was an art deco-style brass robot powered by soda (primarily Crystal Pepsi), who wore a tall black top hat and red suspenders. He played the mandolin, bass, guitar, drums, occasional keys, and the electric watermelon. The Jon left the group in September 2012. Unlike Upgrade's departure, The Jon's character still exists within the canon lore of the band's universe.
* '''Upgrade''' (Erin Burke) was the only female robot in the group before January 2014. She left the band in 2011 to further pursue an acting career.
* '''Hatchworth''' (former human member Sam Luke) is a brass automaton, who sports a black army jacket with red accents, knee-high boots, a bowler hat, and his signature ginger mustache. He had been kept in storage for many years due to a leaking and dangerous power core, but was recently repaired and put to use as the Walter Manor's butler. He possesses the ability to produce a "hatch's worth" of sandwiches from nowhere. He plays the bass and drums. Left the band in December 2016. He still exists in continuity.

* TalkingToHimself: Especially on "The Vice Quadrant", where each performer does several voices, it can be very hard to tell when this is happening.
** "Oh No" seems like an example at first, when the Astronaut asks himself, "Commander Cosmo...did he kill her? No. I feel my power fading...She's *letting* me die!" But at this point, Commander Cosmo was back at the battle site with Cosmica and the Astronaut was many miles away at the Necrostar.
** Commander Cosmo was voiced by Bunny.
** This also gets confusing in "Starburner" when Rav and Rabbit both appear in the same song.
