The subject matter of this article was cut from the final version of an official / canonical source.
- The original green Robot Grunt is featured in the Half-Life SDK files in the folder "RGrunt" (there the name "robot grunt" is given in the file "rgrunt.qc"), but not in the Half-Life game files.
- It is notably known for replacing all HECU soldiers in the censored German version of Half-Life. Germany heavily censors video games with an excessive amount of violence or strong Nazi references. The German version of Half-Life also features other censored elements, such as when Black Mesa employees die. It has the same voice as the uncensored HECU, even sometimes saying "Augh! Medic!" when shot.
- The model of the Robot Grunt was also used to replace all classes of Team Fortress Classic in the German version.
- The only version available in the retail games is a bronze variant available as a player model for the multiplayer version of Half-Life, named "robo".
