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.
  • Advertisement:
  • 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.



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.



The Yonker Family

Ma Yonker, and her children Mic, Luke, Josh, and Zebulon, are citizens of Tumbleton.
