Trivia

  • Dr. Toxic actually resembles radioactivity more than toxicity. This is because the symbol on his blaster is the universal warning sign for radioactivity; this is a very common mistake in media. The game also mentions his weapon of choice is Urbrainium which is a parody of Uranium, a radioactive metal.
    • In terms of toxicity, the only thing toxic about this variant could be radiation poisoning, which is harmful to living organisms.
  • He is one of three Scientist variants that wear two shoes, the other being the Paleontologist and the Zoologist.
  • In Garden Warfare 2, the glass in his gas mask is less reflective, making it easier to see his face.
