Awesomenauts Wiki

Back Story[ | ]

Voltar's past is shrouded in mystery. Rumor has it he once was a researcher at a star-encapsulating power station. The station made intergalactic headlines when it exploded around 500 years ago, sending off all kinds of strange, unseen radiation into space. In this explosion, the Al core of the Zero's was destroyed, bringing an abrupt end to the First Al War. Although peace was maintained for some centuries, the war eventually returned. Some think that war was just too profitable, and suspect that weapon manufacturers had a hand in the construction of a new Al core for the Zero's.

The explosion at the power station destroyed almost every part of Voltar's body, leaving only his brilliant brain intact. This brain was carefully placed inside a Braintank by salvagers. Through the years, and with help of his loyal robot drones, he made some nifty modifications to his braintank that enabled him to participate in the newly erupted Robot Wars.

No-one knows Voltar's true motives for participating in the war as a mercenary, but what can be assured is that he’s a mastermind with unmatched psychotechnic powers and an arsenal of armed robots that do his every bidding.

Voltar Bonaparte[ | ]

Characterrender voltar bonaparte

"La mort de Napoléon a toujours été entourée de mystère. Certains disent qu'il fut empoisonné, d'autres pensent que son corps n'a pas tenu le coup et quelques-uns soupçonnent même qu'il se soit échappé de sa prison de Sainte-Hélène. Quelle que soit l'explication réelle, un fait reste avéré : il a disparu de l'Histoire en 1821 et plus personne n'entendit parler de lui.

En 3521, nous avons enfin découvert la vérité sur ces faits. Une vérité que personne n'aurait pu imaginer.

Il avait la technologie.

Il s'est reconstruit."

This DLC contains a custom skin for Voltar in Awesomenauts, and will automatically unlock the character if you have not already done so. - Official Steam Store description.

This skin gives Voltar the millitary outfit and iconic bicorne hat (with a white plume) used by Napoleon Bonaparte. He also has a saber in a sheath and a medal in his chest. His drones wear french infantry hats and have moustaches, techno synaptic wave is a fleur-de-lis and leaves a trail of additional fleurs-de-lis and croissants, the satellite dish animation used in healbot's summon is replaced by a fork and croissant, while healbot itself has wooden wheels and Napoleon's bicorne hat and its "timer" aura is replaced by a trio of fleurs-de-lis. When summoned, healbot plays a few seconds of "La Marseillaise", France's national anthem.

Trivia[ | ]

  • Voltar is one of the "original six" Awesomenauts that came with the game when it first launched, along with Clunk, Froggy G, Leon, Lonestar, and Yuri.
  • According to his backstory, Voltar is over 500 years old.
  • Given the "saturday morning 80s cartoon" theme Awesomenauts has, it is likely that Voltar is based on Krang[9] from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles[10] franchise, who is also a disembodied brain.
  • Voltar was directly responsible for Ted McPain's resurrection.
  • Voltar was the first (and only, to date) Awesomenaut to be extensively reworked, gameplay-wise.
  • In the shortened backstory previously used in-game, the "star-encapsulating station" mentioned in Voltar's backstory is named AI Station 101.
  • As part of his rework in Patch 2.10, Voltar's Healing Wave was renamed Techno Synaptic Wave. This makes Voltar the only character to have a skill completely renamed.
