Twisted Metal, produced by Peacock, is an action-comedy series based on the well-known video game franchise of the same name and was created by Michael Jonathan Smith. The story revolves around John Doe, a milkman with amnesia who has a motormouth and is tasked with carrying a mysterious item through the wasteland of the post-apocalyptic globe. John encounters odd individuals and murderers along the way, including Sweet Tooth, one of the most recognisable video game characters. Here’s all you need to know about Sweet Tooth in “Twisted Metal,” including who plays him and whether he survives the brutal finale. Spoilers follow!
Who Plays Sweet Tooth?
After making his debut in the first game of the same name from 1995, Sweet Tooth has become one of the most well-known characters in the “Twisted Metal” video game series. In practically every game in the series, he is portrayed as a murderous clown with a burning head. He also appears on the game covers. It is safe to argue that Sweet Tooth serves as the video game series’ mascot as a result. Therefore, it makes sense that the character appears in the 2023 film “Twisted Metal,” which is a live-action version of the video games. In the second episode of the show, John Doe (Anthony Mackie) encounters Sweet Tooth, who is portrayed as a clown desperate for support from the audience.
Samoa Joe, also known as Nuufolau Joel Seanoa, plays the role of Sweet Tooth in the song “Twisted Metal.” Joe is a professional wrestler who gained notoriety by competing in independent circuits and promotions like Ring of Honour and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. However, Joe’s time with WWE, where he wrestled from 2015 to 2022, helped him become more well-known. At the moment, he competes in All Elite Wrestling as Samoa Joe. Joe’s debut in a leading role as an actor was in “Twisted Metal.” However, Sweet Tooth is voiced by actor Will Arnett. Arnett is well-known for his work on television programmes including “Arrested Development” and “30 Rock” as well as for lending his voice to the highly regarded adult cartoon comedy “BoJack Horseman.”
Is Sweet Tooth Dead or Alive?
Sweet Tooth resembles his video game counterpart in “Twisted Metal.” The way the series handles the game’s mythology and the source material, however, substantially alters his backstory and destiny. In the beginning, Las Vegas’s streets are under the authority of a serial murderer named Sweet Tooth. Sweet Tooth, however, simply wants to be recognised for his performances. As the story develops, viewers find out that Sweet Tooth was a young actor on a well-known comedy who had his popularity taken away by his canine co-star. Sweet Tooth killed the dog as a result, and after being committed to a mental hospital, his psychiatric problems got worse. Agent Stone murders the fans that Sweet Tooth has amassed in the present. Sweet Tooth takes revenge on Agent Stone as a result.
Stu and Mitch, two freshly hired lawmen who worked for Agent Stone, are taken into custody by Sweet Tooth throughout this process. In the climactic scene, Sweet Tooth takes part in the demolition competition that Agent Stone has set up to eliminate John Doe and Quiet. Sweet Tooth eliminates the other drivers who were supporting John during the decisive battle with Agent Stone’s soldiers. As a result, Stu shoots Sweet Tooth, and as they depart the scene, Mitch and Stu run him over with their automobile. However, Sweet Tooth survives his injuries rather than passing away. In the post-credits sequence, Sweet Tooth makes a comeback to get right with Stu and Mitch, killing Mitch and kidnapping Stu. The conclusion also establishes Calypso’s “Twisted Metal” demolition derby, which is a mainstay of the video games where players usually interact with Sweet Tooth. Therefore, the conclusion implies that, should the show return for a second season, not only is Sweet Tooth alive, but he might also play a role in Calypso’s tournament.
