Choosing between Mills or Kuzak as mayor of Detroit is an important decision you have to make in RoboCop: Rogue City. Both politicians are on polarizing ends with radical ideals that will affect what happens in the game’s ending. With citizens losing faith in the government, they turn to the OCPD legend RoboCop for an answer.
In this guide, I’ll show you the endings for both mayor choices between Mills or Kuzak. Keep in mind that this article will contain spoilers in regards to the political ending of RoboCop: Rogue City.
Mayor Choice: Mills or Kuzak?
Mills and Kuzak have very different ideals from each other. It’s nearly election day in RoboCop: Rogue City, and whoever you decide to support will no doubt have the public backing they need to be elected. Let’s break down what each mayor wants.
John Mills: A staunch supporter of OCP and very pro-Delta City. This charismatic politician clearly looks down on the local riffraff but is the only one who promises to grant human rights to RoboCop.
Marvin Kuzak: A very anti-OCP politician who serves as the current mayor of Detroit. He isn’t the most friendly to machines like RoboCop, but he does seem concerned about OCP’s corrupt influence on the citizens.
These two will do anything to get elected. There’s no clear moral line here either. Kuzak even becomes desperate enough to attempt bribing RoboCop for his support, and Mills mooches up to Murphy to get his backing. Throughout several moments in the game, you’ll have an opportunity to back up either one of them.
RoboCop: Rogue City doesn’t just give you one choice between Mills or Kuzak. There are times when you’re presented with a consequential choice: to support one politician over the other. The most important one is near the end of the game where a journalist asks for your pick between the two.
What happens if you support Mills?
The RoboCop: Rogue City ending will show that despite John Mills being elected mayor, he gets out of Detroit City anyway. When the OCP takes a massive hit thanks to Max Becker, Mills finds out that Delta City is put on hold and shows his true colors. As he puts it himself, he didn’t sign up for this dump.
One can hardly blame Mills for not wanting anything to do with Detroit in RoboCop. However, the fact that his plans for being mayor are revealed to be just predictably screwing over the poor is the bad ending for the game. Behind the charismatic facade, there is just another corporate snake who is using RoboCop to become elected.
What happens if you support Kuzak?
The RoboCop: Rogue City ending will show Marvin Kuzak re-elected for the position of mayor. However, as the debt of Detroit City grows, Kuzak chooses to sue OCP when they’re at their weakest. Even if he has to use a “Japanese” lawyer to do so.
Why exactly Kuzak believes a Japanese lawyer would fare well under American law is anyone’s guess. This is arguably a good ending, as it does reflect the choice to serve the public trust. However, Kuzak turns out to be ungrateful to the person responsible for helping him become re-elected by distancing himself from RoboCop and refusing to grant him basic human rights.
This rings true to the RoboCop fashion that politicians aren’t exactly the best people alive. Kuzak just happens to be the lesser evil.
