The T-800 Terminator is a fictional model of robot featured in the Terminator multimedia franchise. The full classification for this model is Cyberdyne Systems Series 800 Terminator, or simply Series 800 Terminator. Of the various models of Terminators that have been presented throughout the films and television series, the T-800 is the most recognizable to fans, particularly given the steely visage of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who portrayed the T-800 in the 1984 film Terminator as well as its 1991 sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Although Schwarzenegger also portrayed a Terminator in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, this was actually the T-850 model.
In 1999, Sarah Connor suffered a nightmare wherein a T-800 Terminator shot up a bunch of police officers in West Fork, New Mexico, then killed John Connor before Sarah's eyes. Sarah begged him to kill her, but it didn't matter. A giant explosion erupted in the background, signalling the beginning of Judgment Day. (Terminator: Pilot)
