Vigilante 8 Wiki

Garbage Man, possibly the most well-known Drifter in Vigilante 8

The Drifters are a faction introduced in Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense. They are not actually a team, but are rather considered neutral in the Auto Wars, though some may seem more good or evil than others. Certain characters, however, seem to make multiple appearances together throughout the levels in Quest Mode, such as the combination of Padre Destino, Astronaut Bob O. and Garbage Man, despite having little to no connection with each other. The Drifter color is green.

  • Despite Vigilante 8: Arcade technically being a remake of the original Vigilante 8, the term Drifters is still used to describe certain characters in the game, even though the term was nonexistent in the original game. Those who are associated with the term serve no purpose to the plot of the game (i.e. no Quest Mode).
