Rusty

The main protagonist of SteamWorld Dig


  • Distressed Dude: His actual fate in the sequel was being strapped to Rosie's mecha and being used as a living battery. Good thing Dot came after him!
  • Nice Hat: A simple yet nice-looking cowboy hat. He even tips it in versions with animated dialogue sprites.
  • The Quiet One: Fits this more than being a true Silent Protagonist, as he does speak twice in the game: During the intro cutscene, and during the cutscene before battling Voltbot. He keeps talking in the sequel, even if he's really weak at that point.

  • Scarf Of Asskicking: A red one, and he lives up to the asskicking part when he storms Vectron. NPCs in the second game even mention his scarf when talking about him.
  • Sudden Sequel Heel Syndrome: Seems to have undergone this, if NPCs thinking he was responsible for the earthquakes and him being worshipped by a cult as a destruction god are any indication. Maybe Vectron got to him after all... Just kidding, Rusty's still a good guy, as he was actually trying to keep the earthquakes from getting even worse.

Dorothy

A citizen of Tumbleton, and the main protagonist of Steam World Dig 2.


  • Girlish Pigtails
  • In-Series Nickname: Dot.
  • Little Miss Badass: Seems fairly young for a steambot, but is more than capable of trekking across the sequel's worlds, smashing monsters' heads with a pickaxe, and destroying a mech suit piloted by a Shiner with Rusty strapped to the front.
  • Promoted to Playable: Was not playable in the first game, but is the focus of the sequel.
