What is Zero?
Is he an alien or an android or what? He only has 4 finger so he's not human.

Zer0 is Zer0 is Zer0. Only the devs know what it is. Beyond being a haiku assassin with interest in the Vault that is.

I DO remember reading something about how Zer0 was an It.

How many fingers would you have if you ran around in a non-stop hostile enviroment trying to sneak up on people with a long sharp blade? Just wondering : -)

Maybe he's a fish.

Zer0 is an assassin for hire
As his face and body are completely covered by his suit, a certain amount of mystery surrounds Zer0's true appearance. In an ECHO recording, Angel remarks that she's not even sure if Zer0 is human; both in-game and promotional material show that he has only four digits on each hand. His origins and real name are also unknown, leaving the character shrouded in mystery.
As revealed in the "Ask Dr. Tannis" Section of the Pandoran Gazette, included as a scrap of paper in the Diamond Plate Loot chest, Zer0 is not his true name. The remaining piece of scrap containing the name and gender of Zer0 were not included, but the part that does remain suggests that Patricia Tannis is aware of Zer0's origins.

My guess, Eridian/Human hybrid.

When my friends play him, he's the guy rushing in and getting me killed. :/

four fingers really doesn't mean much look at the sirens ,Krieg turns into a giant monster ,and goliaths they are still human sort of

I like to think Zer0 is a robot built for Hyperion purposes, with advanced technology to make him seem human, but it backfired, and now he's a Vault Hunter.

As evidenced by echo recordings, albeit tangentially, one might come to a conclusion about Zer0 as someone totally in tune or constantly forging himself along a path of obsessive perfection in combatives. I see Zer0 as someone who has piecemealed the elegant portions of the culture that he is at least reverent of, and to me that is clearly Zen Buddhism, given his name and obsession with needing higher challenge so that he can persue the perfection of his tradecraft. I think for these things clearly spell out that he is more of a modern styled kensai. Although a gun for hire, and like some of the others, but in his own right, the reason he is a vault hunter is actually because he deigns experience in combat as his highest priority to experience the progress of his meditation. combat such a way of life for him that it litereally is his meditation, and he finds himself centered while engaged as such. Additionally, for these reasons, and for the constant need, I feel he would fall to pieces if he didnt have something to fight, he is a most dangerous and loose cannon psychopath. If he were peaceful he might be refrerred to as an egotist, or perhaps even narcist. However, that he finds his stillness in movement and bloodshed, I doubt that he would be able to come to grips with himself otherwise were he not just this, and like a pact with himself and the blade he can see his reflection upon, might be the sort that took it a step further, the digits on his hands are a clue that something is indeed odd about him, however the one that really gets me is how his hip casts a full 180 degrees while doing a moonjump vault before the rest of his torso comes to align(in the opening video) giving a perfect super human kick, which would not be possible for a normal human. To me it just makes me think that he is so distressed and obsessed on so many levels that he may have subjected himself to cybernetic enhancement to realize the perfection of form, which in reality are just unreachable concepts to shoot for, in his obsession literally has changed his name to Zer0 as if to convince himself and anyone who deals with him what hes all about. He is almost certainly cyborg.

What that guy ^ said.

Or he's a laser ninja... from space.
Chiberatsu Dec 23, 2013 @ 10:42am 
He is most likely a robot and his sniping upgrades increase his sight wich a normal human could not do this instantly unless they had a robotic eye or something similar and as stated before above me has most likely been cybernetically modified to be almost full robot or a cyborg and if you state in borderlands 1 mordecai also had zoom increasing upgrades its because the goggles he wears are most likely modified
Novatech Dec 23, 2013 @ 11:21am 
yeah I have been thinking he is an android or alien, most likely android. He could be a cyborg, but what is his species of origin is the real question. I also saw an outfit for him that has no eye holes, so I wonder if he even uses eyes, especially since he has an "echo location" head.
