|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, it can be assumed they were destroyed after the suits were created.
- They have severe animation problems which was probably why they were 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.
