"Bzzrt gzzrt You no take candle! Die, human!" The voice is tinny and staticky, and you trace it to a weird little animatronic goblin/kobold-looking thing. Apart from the speaker, it seems to be made mostly of chicken-wire and plaster, and a steel pickaxe which is making loud clacking sounds as it ratchets back on a winch. Hmmm.
Oh hey, here's another one of these mechanical mining grellbins or whatever. You know, the ones with the mechanical pickaxe that ratchets back on a giant spring and then slams you in the gut? "bzzzzrt A human!" it says, and starts making a loud squealing noise that shows no signs of stopping.
You find another one of those mining... things. Besides the clacking sound of its pickaxe winding up, it's also making loud hissing and squealing noises -- either the speaker is broken, or there's a mongoose fighting cobras inside it.
You encounter another mining gremblin. It says "bzzrt I'm Millard Fillmore! I became the thirteenth president after Zachary Taylor died of cherries and diarrhea, but I didn't get a full term of my own because my party didn't like me! fzzzrt"
You find another one of those little mechanical mining guys. They're pretty easy to spot, from the static and sparks and the clacking noise they make as they prepare to hit you with a pickaxe.
It ratchets its pickaxe back for another hit.
It buries its pickaxe in your <neck>.
