The Metal Slug is a community-created cosmetic item for the Pyro. It is a robotic version of the Triboniophorus Tyrannus. It is a set of painted metal plates bolted together in a sphere on a spring, with suction cups attached to it with hinges.

When players equipped with this item kill an enemy unassisted by another player, the killfeed shows everyone in Pyroland that it gets the assist, with its custom name if it has one.

The Metal Slug was contributed to the Steam Workshop under the name "Triboniophorus Trojanus".
