The Metal Potato Thing is 1 of 4 Things used on the Wooden Thing to travel to the next world. It is located near some Basic Farms, which are surrounded by some Grass and Twigs. Shovels, and Carrots.
Unlike other Things, it is not surrounded by Evil Flowers.
- This part of the machine is found near a garden, and Wickerbottom claims it's neither fully organic nor inorganic, suggesting it may have been grown there (or someone tried to grow it).
- Wilson mentions that metal potato contains great and fearful power.
- The Metal potato thing is actually robotic Maxwell's head. Calling it a potato may just making fun out of the game's antagonist, though being near a farm make the potato similarities more obvious.
- The Metal potato thing is the reason the Teleporter (when fully constructed) is more commonly referred to as the 'Teleportato'.
- This may be a reference to the game Portal 2, in which the main antagonist Wheatley puts GLaDOS into a potato battery. This is reinforced by WX-78's quote, seen above.
