C3 Tetsuo head

View from inside the car of Tetsuo's head.

  • Tetsuo was the antagonist in cyberpunk manga (later anime film) Akira, a psychic who eventually becomes a gigantic cyborg-like monster. It is however more likely the character in TDR2K is referencing the low-budget movie Tetsuo: The Iron Man, where a Japanese salaryman transforms into a machine hybrid.
  • He's not kidding; If the roof is knocked off, the player can see that Tetsuo is merely a head wired into the vehicle. Even a large portion of that head looks to have been replaced with machine parts.
