The name or term "Hydrobot" should not be confused with Hydra.

The concept art for the Hydrobot

A Hydrobot is a Non-Humanoid Hunter Killer unit produced by Skynet sometime before 2018. It features a serpent-like structure with a claw at their head. It is used to patrol the waters. As the name implies, a Hydrobot has difficulty operating on land, but they could jump incredible distances and use their metal teeth to cut through even metal.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The Resistance captured one Hydrobot to test the disruption signal they retrieved from Skynet VLA after the raid on the facility. Later, when Marcus Wright and Blair Williams were trying to escape Connor's Resistance compound, Hydrobots attacked the chopper which John Connor was aboard. The chopper crashed into the river and the Hydrobots began to swarm the wreckage of the helicopter. John was the only one left to fend off the machines, destroying several, until Marcus came out of the water to dispatch the last machine, before making a deal with John to save Kyle in Skynet Central.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Hydrobots do not seem "smart" as noted in the film Terminator Salvation, when John Connor ordered the test of "shut down" code, referring as "We'll test it on something small and easy to catch".
  • It is not clear how Hydrobots propel themselves through the water. Based on the design, it is logical that they have some sort of propeller in the inner part of their chassis.
  • Hydrobot seems to be developed from Aquatic Work Bot.
