"There is a Nuke for every mood."―Cain, referring to his various versions of Nuke[src]
Unlike narcotics processed from agricultural sources or plant extract, Nuke was a designer drug, thus manufacture could be accomplished in near any location using widely available chemicals.
There were four known varieties of Nuke:
- Red Ramrod
- White Noise
- Blue Velvet
- Black Thunder
The original and most widespread variant was Red Ramrod.
Following Cain's death, his brain was inserted into the cyborg, RoboCop 2 and it, like Cain before, was addicted to the substance.
Behind the scenesEdit
The tiny "container" that held the drug Nuke was actually a saline re-moisturizer for contact lens wearers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The solution was dyed red and, in some shots, had a small needle sticking out after someone removes the covering to administer the drug.
