The Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Series 800 Terminator was sent by Skynet in 2029 to Los Angeles in 1984 to kill Sarah Connor, the future mother of John Connor, the leader of the future human Resistance. It was the first of the Infiltrators sent back on assassination missions by Skynet, and is arguably the single most significant Terminator unit as it inadvertently "fathered" Skynet in its journey through time, similar to how Kyle Reese fathered John Connor in his.

The first two Terminator movies were super influential in the 80s and 90s, and hold up spectacularly! The action, soundtrack, and environments no doubt inspired many other franchises to come, including but not limited to: Metal Gear, Final Fantasy 7, and The Matrix. Btw, I've been an Arnold fan since the 80s, being introduced to him in Conan and Red Sonja.

I never thought I'd get to create an Arnold Schwarzenegger profile on TFG. Thanks NRS... whatever sells your games. lol. It's really a shame they couldn't get the actual Arnold to voice him in MK11 (like Namco did with Jeffrey Dean Morgan / Negan in TEKKEN 7). Arnold's Austrian accent is legendary and never fails to sound cool no matter what he says. "Get to Da Choppah!" ... Alas, the doppelganger who did Arnold's voice in MK11 wasn't terrible but wasn't great. Nitpicks aside, NRS made some crazy things happen in MK11. Schwarzenegger versus Stallone... in a fighting game. Crazy times we live in! Of course, most of Terminator's fighting animations are stiff and laughable in the actual game, sadly. Some animations were so bad and unhumanlike, that a legendary meme was born (see below image).
