7 Drivers We Want To See in the Twisted Metal TV Show – ComingSoon.net
Twisted Metal is a set of games that are synonymous with the PlayStation console, having had several successful entries in the franchise, and now the subject of a forthcoming television show. This car combat series captured fans with its destruction derby-like action, vicious lethality, and dark humor, peaking with its second entry and Black for most fans.

Each installment doesn’t always feature the same roster of combatants participating in the tournament, keeping the blood fresh. Though several of the vehicles have become mainstays, they often see upgrades, and several of the operators are switched out regularly. This brings in new people with various motivations, all of which want to win the tournament so Calypso will grant their wishes. These car and driver combos aren’t just the characters for the light story; they give Twisted Metal its personality.

It’s a fierce machine designed for the streets, but capable of navigating any war zone. Thumper isn’t just a Twisted Metal original, but one of the toughest vehicles to ever drive into the contest and even appears as a boss character in one of the later installments.
