This version of Gyro Gearloose is an antisocial mad scientist employed by Scrooge McDuck as Head of Research & Development at his Money Bin. Gyro is an unparalleled genius, but his inventions have an unfortunate tendency to become sentient and rise up against their masters. In spite of this, Gyro sees all of his inventions as his children and often overlooks their flaws.
He may have died in 2019 during General Lunaris's Moonlanders' invasion of Earth, but was immediately replaced with a clone of himself — making little difference, as these were the sorts of Clones so identical in memory and personality to the original that even they were unsure whether the original or a clone had been killed.
- Now, try to keep up with my mind-numbing genius!
- Only half of my inventions turn evil. The other half are just wildly misunderstood!
- You miserable piece of rust! I am man! You are machine! Do as I command or I will pull your plug!
- How can you ensure that this machine won't turn evil?… Huh, never said that out loud.
Behind the scenes
This version of Gyro was first seen in 2017 in The Great Dime Chase.
His fate in Moonvasion as such is ambiguous (with the possibility left open that both of the Gyros who died were clones), but Francisco Angones later confirmed on Frank Angones and the Suspenders of Disbelief that Gyro was among the casualties of the Moonlander invasion.
Nevertheless, as Gyro's Clones basically have continuity of consciousness with the original Gyro, and given that the conceit is that no one (not even themselves) even knows for sure whether the real Gyro died or was replaced, the Wiki will continue to treat further appearance of a singular Gyro as "an appearance by Gyro Gearloose", even if he is in fact a clone.
