"Science solves everything!"

A quick draw while I'm working on something else. Cino is easily my favourite Tom Tom cause I have a soft spot for nerds lmao.

He's does a lot for the Tom Tom Gang as Benito's right-hand man but nobody understands or cares for his scientific gibberish. He even went to school to learn the mechanics of both Time and Space (maybe he was the one who figured out how to create pause grenades). Of course when nobody listens to him everything goes to shit and the TT protagonist Bombay almost becomes crispy bacon in the Time Oil Well World.

EDIT: Poor guy's name isn't even pronounced in game. 'Cino' is the shortened form of Italian names like Baroncino and is pronounced as such.
I also just realised that Tom Toms have some weird self-awareness. Ugo refers to Bombay as 'bacon' in the face of fiery death.

Please Protect Precious Porkchop. (PPPP)

Guy's so underappreciated that it's really easy not to know his proper name.  Hardly ever comes up, even though he had a name ever since BLiNX 1.  I have no idea if his name was used anywhere in BLiNX 1, but he's named in Perfect Guide alongside Ugo and Benito.  He also had so much cut content, for some unknown reason.

I realised that the way his name is the short form of Italian names like Baroncino and is pronounced as such. His name appeared in the US manual but never mentioned in game.

He sure has a lot to say but even the game has no time for him lol.

Liking the naming scheme for the Tom Toms.  Gives them some individuality.

I'm pretty sure his name is mentioned in text during a mission at some point, though.  It's just never spoken aloud in-game, because for some reason they decided to cut out every instance of it.  It's not like it was mispronounced, either - Perfect Guide very clearly writes his name (phonetically) as chi-no in Japanese.  Very unfortunate, under-appreciated dude.  I do wonder if he ever sees any action, though.
