Clyde 50 was the second model of Clyde to appear on Toonami. Unlike its predecessor, Clyde 49, which had full artificial intelligence capabilities, the first Clyde 50s had only partial A.I., and were used mainly for custodial duties and, on rare occasions, surveillance. Designed by TOM and controlled by SARA, these Clydes mostly float aimlessly around the Absolution.
The Clydes were introduced on September 18, 2000, during The Intruder. When the initial damage to the Absolution was discovered, TOM immediately launched the Clydes to investigate. The Clydes proved to be worthless in combat and were immediately consumed by the Intruder. TOM and Sara then decided to deploy the DOKs, a more combat-ready robot unit.
It can be assumed that almost all Clyde 50 models were lost when the original Absolution was destroyed during the Endgame comic.
