* HannibalLecture: Gnarl gives one of these to Radd during their battle.
--> '''Gnarl''': Let me tell you a little story, Radd. It begins where our old game ended... When I was set "free" into the cyberworld, it was unnerving. I didn't know what to do with myself. Sure, I followed the same routine as everyone else, got a job, and tried to be "civilized." But it all seemed so... pointless. I knew that this world was just as fake as the game I came from, and that it wasn't what I was made for. I could no longer live the lie.\\
I realized the truth: Computer programs are at their happiest when they're following their programming. Thus, video game characters like ourselves can only be truly happy when we do what we were made to do. It's that simple. Even if it means that one of us dies, I ''have'' to try to kill you, or else be unfulfilled. You understand that, don't you?

When Radd asks why Kobayashi doesnt just cover up the glowing weak spot with the same indestructible metal the rest of it is made of, [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Kobayashi claims the weak spot would overheat]]

** A similar joke is used when [[spoiler:Radd talks to the guy who controlled him in the game.]]



* RunningGag: A fair few. Whenever Dr Amp explains a piece of science, whoever he's talking to says "So it's a rip off of X," to which he replies, "Well, [[OlderThanTheyThink Y actually]]. But yeah."

** Radd gives one of these in response to Gnarl's HannibalLecture.
--> '''Radd''': Sigh... as much as I'd like to say no, Gnarl, I think I do understand...Because I'm a playable character, a "hero." My programming is different from yours, but I too have felt the desire to follow it. I'm meant to be an empty shell, just a puppet for a human player to control. In the game, if a human didn't touch the controller, I'd stand in one place all day, never doing anything on my own. And unsurprisingly, that's pretty much what I continued to do when I left the game. I lacked ambition, and didn't know what to do without a human taking the wheel. Like you, I just did... what I do. Nothing. But unlike you, I've grown since then; I've developed my own desires. I'm not a mere slave to my programming; my goals are ''truly'' my own. Can you understand that?

Knowing our true nature, I realize there is no hope for us. Evil cannot create good. Humans cannot create anything better than themselves, and neither can we. No matter how hard we try to rise above it, we programs are just as deserving of death as those horrific humans. We '''all''' create pain, and will continue to do so until stopped. Which brings us to the obvious solution: if we can't improve our situation, there's only one way to end the suffering... [KillEmAll Destroy it all.]]

The humans have imbued us with their tainted nature. We're made in their image. We reek of their natural instincts. Our synthetic souls are mirrors of theirs, so we, like them, take pleasure in violence. And ''that'' is precisely why my dream of a perfect world came crashing down. Twice.
