|Not in FusionFall Retro.|
| The following article is about something that appeared after the Birthday Bash update in FusionFall, and so will not appear in FusionFall Retro.|
As such, it solely exists for archiving part of the original game.
TOM or Toonami Operation Module is the host of the programming block Toonami who first appeared during the Birthday Bash. His design is based primarily on TOM 3.0, though some deviations are present. He is the only non-generic NPC to not come from a show, but a programming block, where he announces the shows and occasionally rates new video games.
TOM's block hosted action shows like Samurai Jack and Dragon Ball Z. The first TOM hosted the show aboard the Absolution for over a year until September 2000 when he was destroyed by The Intruder. Sara, the Absolution's AI, downloaded TOM 1's memory matrix into a new unit on the ship. The new TOM, dubbed TOM 2, saved the ship by separating the starboard engine, now almost fully consumed by The Intruder, by setting charges and blowing apart the connecting section of the engine. After bringing the Absolution to Startower for repairs, he continued to host the show for 3 years. In March 2003, Sara was stolen by a space pirate who made his way into the Absolution. TOM 2 went after him only to be killed during their encounter. Friendly robots found his remains in a scrap pile and repaired him into a new body, his most famous model, dubbed TOM 3. TOM 3 was eventually able to save Sara and continued to host the show for exactly four years. He was replaced with a newer version, dubbed TOM 4.0, without explanation. Sara was removed for TOM 4.0's era. TOM 4.0 hosted the block until cancellation on September 20, 2008. It was brought back in 2012, but aired on the late-night, maturely-aimed version of Cartoon Network called Adult Swim. Toonami now hosts more TV-14 and TV-MA anime shows like Deadman Wonderland and Fullmetal Alchemist.
