Adam Nier.png
Welcome... to my beloved city. I–or we machine lifeforms, I suppose–have a keen interest in humanity. Love. Family. Religion. War. The more human records I unearth, the more I am charmed by their complexity. (...) I seek to learn and adopt all facets of humanity! Some desired love! Others family! Only then did I realize the truth... The core of humanity... is conflict. They fight. Steal. Kill. THIS is humanity in its purest form!
~ Adam to 2B before the battle in the copied city


Adam (アダム Adamu) is one of the main antagonists of NieR: Automata. He is a core unit of the machine network and the older brother of Eve.

He first appears when 2B and 9S explore the cave beneath the ruins of the housing complex in the desert. After 2B destroys some of the machines in this cave they form a cocoon-like structure and give birth to Adam. The newly born Adam does not move at all in the beginning but evolves the longer 2B fights him. After a hard fight, 2B and 9S manage to stab and critically wound Adam. From this wound, Eve is born.

Later Adam is fought alongside Eve in the alien base beneath the city. He explains that the aliens, who created the machines, were killed by them once the intelligence of the machine network surpassed those of the aliens. He also expresses his interest in humanity for the first time.


Adams last battle is against 2B in his copied city. It becomes apparent that Adams has become obsessed with humans to a point where he is willing to sever his connection to the machine network to experience how it feels to fight for his life on the line. This mistake costs him his life as 2B manages to overpower him.
