  • They are the lowest V2.0 Cogs on the Corporate Ladder.
  • They have a similar appearance to a Bean Counter, the only differences being that a Bean Counter is a Cashbot and a Downsizer is a Bossbot and that their faces differ on close-up, along with different colored hands.
  • Downsizers are the only cogs with three signature cog moves: Downsize, Sacked, and Pink Slip.
  • The phrase "Honey, I shrunk the toon" is a reference to the 1989 movie Honey I Shrunk the Kids.
  • Downsizers are weak to trap doors because they always fall for things that go down.
  • The move Canned is supposed to be a signature move (as stated in the Toon News... for the Amused and the Downsizer trading card), but Corporate Raiders and Money Bags can also use it.
  • One of the Downsizer's starting phrases is similar to a toon phrase bought from the Cattlelog and a phrase use in the Demotion attack: "You're going down, clown."
