Tunneler's dead body is analyzed by paranormal researchers

Not much is known about Tunneler, despite being one of the most frequently appearing puppets. According to a trading card released by Fullmoon Features, Tunneler has the soul of Joseph Sebastian, a soldier who was forced to work in the Nazis' salt mines until he died. Tunneler's namesake and main weapon is a cone-shaped power drill replacing his scalp, he usually kills his victims by charging them head-on with his drill running. Tunneler is more of a follower than a leader, rarely acting first. In Puppet Master 2, he is beaten to death with a lamp by Lance, after drilling a hole through Patrick Bramwell's head. Blade avenged his death. He has appeared in all of the Puppet Master films made by Full Moon, except The Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys.



  • His retro counterpart "Drill Sargeant" was Andre's fellow puppeteer, Vigo Garrison.
  • In the action figure, he has a machine gun and a pick axe, but he never used them in the movies.
