  • Possibly numerous Pandorians

Weapons Edit

  • Hyperion Neuron-Linked Cannon (Element: Slag)

Relationships Edit

Handsome Jack Edit

Nakayama was a very huge admirer of Handsome Jack. He wanted Jack to become immortal by using an endoskeleton that he was going to upload his mind into. When Jack died, he was obessed with cloning him. He succeeded by making an AI version of him.
