Would be a pretty cool homage to one of the best sci-fi creatures ever.

I'm also getting some daft punk vibes obviously.

I'm not seeing it. He's more like Grey Fox than anything else.

Zero was inspired by Aladdin.

They both have swords, and as it turns out Aladdin actually spells his name Aladd1n.

the obvious connection is the elongated black head with no eyes, he's also quite lithe.

The wiki also had this in it:

"One of Zer0's heads, known as "Alienati0n" is a reference to the Alien franchise. "

Gearbox concept designer, Scott Kester, credits Zer0's inspiration to "loner characters" like Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe and Gray Fox from the Metal Gear video game series

The wiki also had that, but I see what you're saying. I haven't seen the Alien head though.

Hes based off of people like gray fox and masterchief who are secretive and wear masks.

There's also a Punk helmet which seems to be reminiscent of Daft Punk. GearBox just loves Pop Culture references. But the character seems mostly inspired by Grey Fox and Raiden.
