On July 20, 2013, the episode "Parent Teacher Night of Doom" was aired alongside "The Dingalingish Patient". In this episode, Kitty stated that she "built her parents" without providing an explanation. Fans of the show said that she is an orphan. However, some fans and other media believed that Kitty is an android herself. This leads to a question: Was Kitty an android? This theory also talks about if she was an alien due to some believeing that she was an alien. Before I discuss the theory myself, let's have KINGBOBMC explain what is an android, its history and examples in pop culture. Give it away, Bobby!
According to Wikipedia, an android is a robot or synthetic organism designed to look and act like a human, especially one with a body having a flesh-like resemblance. Until recently, androids have largely remained within the domain of science fiction, frequently seen in film and television. However, advancements in robot technology have allowed the design of functional and realistic humanoid robots.
Examples of androids in pop culture are:
- The Terminator
- Red Ribbon Androids in Dragon Ball Z
- AMAZO and Braniac in Justice League
Thanks KINGBOBMC for providing the explanation of what an android is, now it's time to discuss the theory myself.
In "Those Who Can't Teach", when Kitty uses acid on her arm, the acid dissolves her skin of her right arm to reveal the bone. After 15 seconds off-screen, her arm is back to normal. This could meant that she could have a super-powered healing factor (which most superheroes and some spices of aliens will do), has some kind of device to repair her wound, an android self-repair system or above all.
In her character design, she has two left feet (Nope, I'm not talking about clumsiness). This is uncommon for a human to have two feet. Due to this reason, It's possible that she could android because if a human walks with two left or rightfeet, he/she wouldn't balance well. As such, she would have some kind of technical balancing in her robotic feet. However, she could be an alien due to two left or right feet on the body of alien according to alien beliefs.
If you count Kitty's IQ, she would have an estimate of an googolplex which a normal person wouldn't handle. This is the reason why Kitty is always intelligent. This could prove that she is an android or an alien.
In the same episode that Kitty had built her robotic parents, mentions that she everyone thinks she's crazy (which most aliens will do).
How did she built her parents, in androids and aliens, they use a special type of memory which could remember easily. A child can't build huge projects due to the difficulty and time on building huge projects. It is possible that she is an alien or an android due to her being a child and can build huge projects.
Was Kitty an android? 100% Yes. Same thing goes for her being an alien. If possible, she may be half android and half alien. However, as an android, she must follow Issac Asimov's law of robotics.
- She may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- She must obey orders given her by human beings where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- She must protect her own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Dispite these facts, she always acted like human due to her being an alien. So, these laws would not apply to her and her family. But, we may never know what is going to happen to them. Only Kitty would tell.
