Pascal Unit Data

! SPOILERS CAUTION !

"A pacifist machine lifeform that despises conflict and strives endlessly for peace with humanity. This unit possesses incredible intelligence, as well as a deep interest in the history of both humans and machines.

After fear overtook them, the children of the Pascal's village committed suicide. Filled with sorrow at his decision to teach them about fear, Pascal asked A2 to delete his memories. Once she did, the Pascal of old ceased to exist."

Trivia

  • If you choose to destroy him near the Resistance Camp as A2, you can receive Ending Z.
  • If you choose to erase Pascal's memories at the end of Chapter 14, visit his village again and he will be available as a shopkeeper.
  • He seems to have taken an interest in reading and philosophy. Can be seen reciting a line from Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche in Chapter 14-02.
  • Pascal is most likely named after Blaise Pascal, a French mathematician, author and philosopher.
  • After finishing A Villager's Request, Anemone will give A2 the philosophy book, Pensées. This book refers to Blaise Pascal's final work which is left incomplete after his death.
  • In the TGS 2016 trailer, the characters of NieR: Automata were showcased along with a word/emotion that represents them the most. Pascal's was 親愛 (Affection).

        The name is likely a reference to the Pascal measuring unit for pressure, since he has what looks like a pressure gauge on his chest.

          Christ, Pascal.

          Weird note: I could have sworn that Pascal was in the original Nier? I have vivid memories of the shade- Kalil- and his buddy Pascal... which is odd considering I looked back and no, that was P-33 I guess.

          Made me ridiculously fond of Pascal before I even played the game or heard much about it tho. No idea how I got that into my head, but compared to that it makes Pascal seem p freaking young, lmao.

            *SPOILER ALERT*





            One of the most tragic characters in the game. I almost cried listening to the voice actress' saying his "heartbreak"... :(

              Pascal's name may be related to Pascal's Wager, but I doubt it considering that Pascal isn't a religious figure and stopped following the Aliens' (their creators) original commands since he stopped hearing from them.
