"I just want to be normal again. I don't want to be the only one on the planet with only half a face."

Twisted Metal 4

4 Orbital 2


Once a dashing spy for British Intelligence, Orbital fell victim to a diabolical bio-weapon experiment by an evil archenemy. He escaped but was horribly disfigured. Except for his unfortunate habit of wearing over amped bell-bottom pants, Orbital has meticulous taste. His choice of cars is no exception. He drives a specially altered high tech sports car. Orbital believes that if he can win the Twisted Metal Competition, he will emerge from the battle a normal person again.

"I am not seeking revenge. All I want is to be like everyone else. I just want to be able to lead a normal life like the next man."

Twisted Metal 4 - Orbital's Ending


  • Orbital's face is a homage to Harvey Dent (AKA Two-Face) of the Batman series. However, his "Secret Agent" status, manner of speech, and British accent is almost certainly a direct reference to Sean Connery's portrayal of James Bond.
    • Another thing that supports his reference to James Bond is that he works for an organization called the British Intelligence Service; while Bond works for the Secret Intelligence Service.
  • Orbital and Crimson Fury share a couple of similarities; both drivers are British spies and they both drive a sports car. Because of this, it could be possible that Orbital was Crimson Fury's replacement or successor in TM4, but this has yet to be confirmed or denied.
  • As seen in TM4's instruction manual and his ending cutscene, Orbital's tuxedo color is usually white and red, while in his info portrait, it appears grey and black.


Twisted Metal 4

  • "After what the evil Dr. Rhoemer did to me with his deadly biochemical weapon, classified as Zytox 4... all I want now is to no longer be an outcast."
  • "I just want to be normal again. I don't want to be the only one on the planet with only half a face."
