Made in Abyss is an anime riddled with mysteries and unanswered questions. One of the biggest mysteries is who created Reg in Made in Abyss. With Made on Abyss Season 2 on the way, we expect these questions to be answered soon.

Made in Abyss is a 2017 mystery adventure anime that follows Riko, an aspiring white whistle cave raider, as she travels through the layers of the Abyss with her cyborg humanoid companion, Reg.

While the aesthetics and visuals of Made in Abyss make it appear to be a wholesome anime, you will be in for a nasty surprise as the plot unfolds.

Reg first appeared on the surface after Riko and Nat carried him from the Abyss's first layer. He has no recollection of his life before launching his incinerator at the Crimson Split Jaw monster.

Riko named him Reg after her late dog because he doesn't know anything about himself. Riko conducted some tests on Reg to determine what kind of artifact he is. Based on Reg's resistance to poison and fire, Riko deduced that Reg is a cyborg.

Reg, according to Riko, is an aubade. A Class A artifact from the netherworld is referred to as an aubade. It is a priceless artifact that the government frequently obtains in order to contain the threat posed by such artifacts.

To avoid trouble, Riko is admitted to the cave raiding Belchero orphanage run by Lyza's apprentice, Jiruo. Despite the young leader's suspicions about Reg's fabricated backstory, Reg successfully enters the orphanage and stays with Riko.

It was unknown who created Reg in Made in Abyss at the time of writing. His entire identity and back story are gradually revealed in the anime as the plot unfolds, so stay tuned for more information.

Reg's identity is shrouded in mystery. He is not just the only cyborg in the anime, but he is also the only one who can withstand the strain of the Abyss' curses. His identity and backstory are so intriguing that everyone they meet along the way becomes involved in his journey.

There's nothing else to say about him besides Lyza's notes about a drawn figure that looks like Reg. The only clue left in the first season of Made in Abyss is that Reg and Lyza know each other in some way, despite having very little recollection of the encounter.

So far, we know that Reg is looking for his Haku in the manga. In case you're unfamiliar, Haku refers to something extremely valuable to someone. Although it is unclear whether Reg's Haku is Riko, she is the closest equivalent to Reg.

After all, even as a cyborg, Reg values Riko so much that he will do anything and go to great lengths to protect her and help her achieve her goals.

Reg is more capable than an ordinary man because he is a humanoid robot. Aside from his arms, which can stretch up to 40 meters, he is also poison and fire-resistant.

Riko took notes on Reg's abilities, but her data was destroyed after the first incident, in which a Corpse Weeper attacked them in the second layer of the Abyss.

Reg proves to be more human than a robot. He has the physical characteristics and bodily functions of a normal boy. Not to mention his genitalia, which served as a running gag throughout the anime.

Reg's distinguishing feature is his incinerator. It can burn and erase anything with a single powerful shot. But every time he uses it, he falls into a deep sleep for two hours to recharge his capacitors.

Another drawback is Reg's helmet pattern, which indicates how many times he can fire his incinerator.

Reg goes berserk after charging on the source of electricity in Bondrewd's territory in Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul.

He claimed that he had multiple personalities inside his body and that one of them possessed him. As a result, he was able to fight on par with Bondrewd while firing multiple incinerators.
