The Synthroid are a race of cybernetic robots that destroyed their original organic creators. In order to power their planet, they planned to capture an Anodite, Verdona, who could power their planet for years.

Appearance

The Synthroid are black muscular humanoids with several cybernetic elements. They have a silver plate on their chest with a red circle. They also have flat faces with red lips and lines going down their bright red eyes. Their mouths do not move when they speak.

Personality

The Synthroid seem to have no care for living beings and justify their actions with the continued survival of their race, such as kidnapping Verdona and destroying their organic creators.

Powers and Abilities

The Synthroid are incredibly strong and can survive extreme environments. They are capable of self-regeneration through the nanobots which make up their body. If one of their limbs is severed it can move autonomously until it re-attaches itself to the body. The Synthroid that appeared in the episode Moonstruck was able to survive falling into a vat of molten metal. They can also produce energy blasts which can do considerable damage.

Trivia

  • The Synthroid appears very similar to many robots from 1950s and 60s science fiction. The craft that the Synthroid was flying in bares resemblance to the classic "UFO" design of retro-science fiction.
  • The Synthroid also appears to be based on Skynet from the Terminator franchise. Skynet was an artificial intelligence program which gained sentience and took over Earth, using robots very similar to the Synthroid to destroy its organic creators.
  • Their name is a portmanteau of "synthesis" and "android", which refers to the fact that they are regenerating cybernetic beings.
