During the discovery of (5145) Pholus, appeared the movie "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991), were the new terminator (T-1000) could adopt the form of the people he touched. Also, John Connor teaches the terminator (T-800) to be more human (resonance 9:5 with Neptune).

(5145) Pholus has an especial ability for interpreting a role and be involved by a universe of fantasy, like in the movies "The Last Action Hero" (1993) and "Basic Instinct" (1992).

Role-playing games

The first commercially available role-playing game, "Dungeons & Dragons", was published in 1974 by TSR. The popularity increased in the following years with many others role-playing games. During the prediscovery of (5145) Pholus in July of 1977, TSR launched "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons". This ambitious project expanded the rules to a small library of hardcover books.
