Wake the f**k up, Samurai. We have a city to burn.
~ Johnny to V in Cyberpunk 2077 - his most famous quote

Johnny Silverhand is one of the most important and playable characters in the entire universe of the Cyberpunk series and the deuteragonist of Cyberpunk 2077. He is an influential musician, Rockman, vocalist and guitarist of the band Samurai. While fighting against the evil people, he is also a fighter against any evil.

In Cyberpunk 2077, he is both voiced and portrayed by Keanu Reaves, who also played Ted, Johnny Utah, Neo, and John Wick. His singing vocals are provided by Dennis Lyxzén, vocalist of hardcore punk band Refused.


Johnny Silverhand, originally born as Robert John Linder, is a very well-known and influential artist in America. An ex-US military veteran who defined the rockerboy movement to what it is today. He was the lead singer of the band Samurai, one of the most prominent figures that fought against the corrupted government and the Corporations. Johnny concentrates most of his anger to the Arasaka corporation, due to the kidnapping of his girlfriend, Alt Cunningham, leading to her supposed death, which may or may not have been his fault. He's charismatic and quite the charmer, but is also known to be irrational, impulsive, and a manipulator often being branded as a terrorist.



Johnny was involved in the conflict in Central America, seen as an unnecessary slaughter of a corrupt and manipulative government. When the secrets were revealed, many American soldiers abandoned their weapons. They were going to fight the government by leaving the military. The state, however, used its force to create strong propaganda and turn its citizens against deserters by persuading them to hate.

Silverhand was one of those who had no intention of fighting a corrupt war. He came home to Night City and started a new life. The military, however, changed his life forever, including his name. Silverhand - from his silver cybernetic arm that replaced the arm lost in the war. Every time he looked at himself, he was reminded of his mission - the rebellion.
