The term "T-5000" should not be confused with Terminator Ultra-5000.


The T-5000 known as Alex.

The T-5000[1] is an advanced model Terminator series produced by Skynet in 2029 during the period shortly before the final battle. It was directly observed that, during the final confrontation, Skynet itself transferred its consciousness into a T-5000 unit to survive and infect John Connor, before turning him into a T-3000 and killing his squad from Tech-Com.

The T-5000 possesses the ability to infect human beings with nano-robots which recode human DNA at the cellular level, transforming them into T-3000 cyborgs.

Known units


  • Since Alex easily infiltrated John Connor's Tech-Com unit, it is likely that the T-5000 cannot be detected by dogs (which were often used to detect covert Terminators, due to the canines' enhanced olfactory senses) since most of the Resistance units have dogs in the base.
  • Since the only known T-5000 unit so far was only briefly featured in Terminator Genisys, its combat abilities are largely unknown, however, it seemingly easily overpowered John Connor's elite squad of soldiers without sustaining any serious damage. John Connor's squad is extremely well equipped and trained, therefore very formidable, able to take down very powerful Terminators. This feat of combat skill likely makes the T-5000 one of the most powerful, if not the most powerful Terminator in existence so far.
