[[WMG:Jack is actually annoyed at Tassiter for [[DoNotCallMePaul getting his name right.]]]]
"Jack" is a nickname for "John," so it could be that Tassiter is perfectly aware of Jack's name, and is [[BotheringByTheBook winding him up by being overly formal]]. One point in favor of this is in their first conversation in the Pre-Sequel - Tassiter initially addresses him as "Jack," only to pointedly switch to "John" at the end of their talk.

Alternatively, his given name really could be "Jack," and Tassiter is making a false assumption. (Real life example of this: my mom's given name is Peg - it's on her birth certificate and everything - but every now and then she encounters someone who ''insists'' on calling her "Margaret.")

** ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheBorderlands'' reveals that [[spoiler: Jack is still alive, but in the form of a murderous hologram that controls and aids Rhys. However, the final episode has Rhys ripping Jack out of his implants and either crushing the ECHO eye Jack resides in, or keeping it.]]

* Jossed, as New-U stations aren't canon.




to:

* As of ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheBorderlands'', [[spoiler: Hyperion has been destroyed due to the crash of Helios into Pandora, and only a friendly bandit group lead by Vaughn remains, named the Children of Helios.]]



* ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'' has [[spoiler: Helios crashing into Pandora, wiping out most of the company's resources. The survivors have formed a friendly bandit clan named the Children of Helios, lead by Vaughn. However, at the time of the crash, Blake was revealed to be acting president of Hyperion.]]




to:

** The war could be the Eridians fighting against the Seraphs, or the actual Seraphs themselves coming to invade.



** WordOfGod has said that, in terms of gameplay, S&S prided itself on having huge magazine clips. Since they made all the different gun companies each hold their own unique property, there was no point in having S&S anymore since Bandit weaponcrafters took up the role instead (and the jury-rigged glue and duct tape gun designs made them more memorable.)

* Interestingly, ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'' has [[spoiler: both the destruction of Hyperion and the return of Atlas thanks to Rhys, who is the new President of Atlas.]]

[[WMG:The Vault in the Badass Crater of Badassitude was a fake. Mr. Torgue arranged the entire Campaign of Carnage just to take down Piston]]

Mr. Torgue may be [[CloudCuckoolander a explosion-obsessed lunatic,]] but he's has shown himself to be [[HiddenDepths very clever when he needs to be.]] He designed all his weapons himself, he's organised big events seemingly all by himself, and he figured out how to beat the supposed invincible Wattle-Gobbler. Despite suffering from an extreme case of TestosteronePoisoning, he is still an heroic character who loves children and his grandma. So it stands to reason that he would ''loathe'' Piston, an arrogant bully who only ever won anything by cheating.

Torgue could have just fired his biggest explosive into Piston's face and called it a day, but he didn't just want him dead, he wanted everyone to see how pathetic Piston really was. The problem is, no-one is badass enough to best Piston's dirty tricks.

Except the Vault Hunters, of course.

So he creates a fake vault in the Badass Crater to lure the Vault Hunters, and a tournament to lure Piston. He makes the Vault Hunters jump through a lot of hoops because he wants it done by the book: The Vault Hunters need to earn their place on the leaderboard for it to mean anything.

The Vault Hunters easily outclass Piston, who resorts to ever more desperate measures to win. In their final confrontation the audience finally sees Piston for what he is and boo him, before the Vault Hunters [[CurbStompBattle hand him his ass.]]

This is why the 'Vault' rewards you with a pathetic helping of guns, when all others contained an Eridian construct: ''it's not a real vault.'' [[TheChessmaster Mr. Torgue managed to play all parties off against each other to get the outcome he wanted.]]

[[WMG:Jack didn't actually get a living Diamond Horse]]
The only thing we actually hear or see Butt Stallion is in a D&D Campaign, and as a horse noise through an Echo, which could easily be played at the press of a button.

*** Since he refers to (presumably) the Wildlife Exploitation Preserve as "THE BIRTHING PLACE", it's possible that "THE SAD-FACED MOTHER" is Dr. Samuels, the reluctant "mother" of the surviving Slag mutants.

[[WMG: Gaige's ECHO Cast wasn't actually unpopular.]]
She was actually a very popular ECHO Caster, but Marcie paid every fan of her to unsubscribe. Her subscribers skyrocketed to 20,000 when Marcie exploded because she was a puddle and therefore unable to pay them to stay unsubscribed.
