Mining Robots were massive sized robots built by the Fongoids for the purpose of mining. When the Fongoids abandoned all technology and left there homeworld of Torren IV, the machines rotted in decay. When the Vullards arrived, they used them for scrap. One Mining Robot, named the Guardian, served as a "bouncer" to keep outsiders away from the Vullards operations. Another one had been reworked into a building, being used by Azimuth as a house. No truly functional Mining Robot is encountered in the entire game.
