Borderlands 2: References to Pop Culture

  • Marvel Comics

The Gunzerker’s I’m the Juggernaut Skill is a reference to the Juggernaut character from Marvel Comics; in a humorous parody of the character, he exclaims, “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch,” which became a very popular internet meme.

The Gunzerker’s “Salvador SMASH” skin is a reference to the Marvel Comics character Hulk, known for commonly yelling, “Hulk smash!”

Lab Rat ‘s will sometimes say, “Optic blast!” before shooting lasers from their eyes which is the name of the mutant ability of Cyclops, a member of the X-Men.

  • Moby Dick

One of Krieg’s screams when Pull the Pin is activated is “From Hell’s heart, I stab at thee!” This was part of Ahab’s ranting at the white whale, Moby Dick.

The Seraph rocket launcher Ahab is a reference to the book, firing harpoons and featuring the obsessed whaler’s last lines as red text.

  • No Country For Old Men

Sometimes in Sanctuary, a Crimson Raider will say, “This is no planet for old men,” referencing the novel No Country for Old Men, whose title itself references the first line of the poem “Sailing to Byzantium” by William Butler Yeats.
