About Toontown: Cogs

Post by Anneliese271 on Tue Apr 28, 2015 10:11 pm

Cogs are the antagonists of Toontown Rewritten. Cogs are business robots with the objective to convert Toontown into a dark corporate land. Four corporate ladders comprise of eight Cogs each, with a total of 32 different Cogs (36 if you count the bosses) with levels varying from level 1 to 12. Cogs use a set of attacks to undermine and sadden the wacky, cheerful Toons into losing all their laff points; stronger Cogs tend to have higher health and stronger attacks.

Tutorial Tom said that the Cogs cannot take a joke. The effect of the Cogs is Toons using jokes called gags to battle them. Cogs must be defeated by using gags.

The Cogs made their first canonical appearance as antagonists at the Toon Council Presidential Elections and turned the event into Doomsday. Before they were antagonists, their first appearance was in particular Trolley games where they would provide friendly competition. After the Cogs tried to take over the Toon Council Presidential Elections, they now roam the streets of Toontown, taking over Toon buildings by dropping Cog buildings on top of them.

History

Sir Max wrote:The good or bad of an idea depends on the maker's purpose. It is one thing to undo a mistake, but fate cannot be altered.

The Cogs were first known as "Trolley-bots" and they would appear in various trolley games to compete against the Toons. On March 26, 2014, the Trolley-bots were recalled because Doctor Surlee accidentally left them in debug mode. With debug mode on, whenever Toons would play a trolley game with Trolley-bots, the Toons would receive a single whisper of a secret message like DS-Debug1: Serial Suit #0045 Method.

When all secret messages were received, they formed two sentences as pieced together:

Method used is the same as last time
All Records Expunged, Further Investigation Will Be Necessary

In this order, the hexadecimal serial numbers could be decoded to read "Creating Equiment" (without the letter "p"). This was instrumental in decrypting Doctor Surlee's blueprint of the Manufacturing Machine. The debug messages don't just show us how to break a Silly Cipher, it also shows us the true nature of the Cogs. Like Sir Max said before, it doesn't matter what toony thing the Toons do because the Cogs' method will be the same.

Doctor Surlee revealed to Sir Max that a certain button combination on the Trolley-bot control panel will temporarily deactivate the Trolley-bots. To do this, Doctor Surlee said to press the second one on the top row, the far right one, the first one and then the first one on the bottom row. This information would have perhaps been more useful if the control panel was not broken.

The Toon Council Presidential Elections was the day the Cogs first started invading Toontown. A level three Yesman, the first Cog to appear in Toontown (outside of trolley games), made Slappy go sad. These robots were dubbed "Cogs" by Doctor Surlee right before the event was invaded. Later during the event, more Cogs led by the Director of Ambush Marketing arrived. Eventually, all the invading Cogs were defeated by Flippy and the rest of the Toons.

After the Cogs invaded the Toon Council Presidential Elections at Toontown Central, Toontown is now completely in peril, so it is up to the Toons to fight against the Cogs to keep Toontown safe and full of happy laughter.

Cog invasion

A cog invasion happens when a specific type of Cog from any of the four corporate ladders take over a certain district. They can happen at any time in any district. During this time, no other Cog, except the invading Cog, are roaming the streets and Cog buildings. Skill points are doubled if a gag is successfully used.

Cog buildings

Cog buildings are buildings that are being dropped onto toon buildings by the Cogs. Toons can revert a cog building back into a toon building by defeating all the Cogs inside the building. If a group of Toons successfully defeat the cog building, their names and faces will be shown as portraits on the wall inside the building. If a Toon can capture enough of these buildings without them being reproduced by the Cogs, the Toon may earn a star over their head.

Trivia


  • All Cogs have a certain gag that is their weakness, which using that gag on that Cog would be defeated quicker, but this doesn't intend to be true.
  • This was said in Toontown Online's Toon News... for the Amused!, although it might not be true in-game. This hasn't been proven to be true in Toontown Online nor Toontown Rewritten.
  • It was assumed that gag weaknesses were programmed into Toontown Online in the form of an accuracy boost. It is unknown whether or not Toontown Rewritten has an accuracy boost programmed in.
  • In Toontown Online, the Cogs were invented by Gyro Gearloose, but in Toontown Rewritten, the Cogs were supposedly invented by Doctor Surlee.
  • A Cog's maximum health can be determined by using the formula (x+1)(x+2), where x is the Cog's level.
  • There is a glitch where in the VP you can see a level 0 cold caller get a promotion.
