|The following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
These skeletons were reanimated in the Y-17 labs, suggesting they were an early version of the trauma override harness suits. Since there are none left in Big MT in the year 2281, they may have been destroyed after the suits were created.
- They have severe animation problems which may have contributed to their being cut from the game.
- They seem to prefer higher tier melee weapons, similar to how lobotomites prefer guns and trauma harness' use energy weapons.
- There is a boss version called the Y-17 advanced animatronic skeleton.
