The Metal Potato Thing is one of four Things used on the Wooden Thing to travel to the next world. It spawns naturally in every world in its own Set Piece. It is located near some Basic Farms, which are surrounded by some Grass and Twigs, a Shovel, and unpicked Carrots.
There are two versions of it, one that spawns in Survival Mode and one in Adventure Mode. The only other difference is the color scheme. Player can craft a Divining Rod to help them track the Metal Potato Thing.
- The Metal Potato Thing is actually a robotic Maxwell's head. Calling it a potato may just be making fun of the game's antagonist, though being near a farm make the potato similarities more obvious.
- It is the reason the Wooden Thing, when fully constructed, is more commonly referred to as the 'Teleportato'.
- It may be a reference to the game Portal 2, in which deuteragonist Wheatley puts the antagonist GLaDOS into a potato battery. This is reinforced by WX-78's quote, as seen above.
