Cheeky Charlatans: Claptrap

Virtual Bastion’s Aprils Fool’s celebration is winding down, but there’s still plenty of fun to be had! And if anyone (thing?) knows about fun, it’s Claptrap from the Borderlands series. He’s my penultimate #cheekycharlatans pick for month!


In terms of classic jokers (the ones who aren’t among Batman’s archenemies), a favorite has long been the characters who put up brave, happy faces in order to hide their inner cowardice. Yes, they love nothing more than to make light of a situation, making fun of anyone within their sphere of influences, which can include themselves, and throwing jokes around like beads at Mardi Gras. When in reality, their own realities are melancholy and, for the sake of the viewer, revealed to be more sympathetic than not. Such is where we come to the one and only Claptrap (aka CL4P-TP) jokey-est joker with a mechanical heart of gold in the Borderlands universe.
