Hank "Cranky" McCrank is a Steambot from Tumbleton. Cranky is the local repairman, and spends his days building things from scrap metal. He owns the first shop where Rusty can buy upgrades, along with ladders, lamps and extra health. He is the father of Dorothy McCrank. He and his shop are unlocked when the player reaches Level 2 (8$). By the time of SteamWorld Dig 2, Dorothy mentions that he had passed away recently.
Cranky appears as a blue robot with overalls and a hat similar to the era of the Great Depression. He is shown to be aged and damaged as his right leg is missing.
