    How can I change it to Terminator and not TERMIN8TR?

    Google functions on a scrape and read, so if it says "termin8tor" on the page, that is what Google will index.

    It will sometimes replace your title tag with the keyword that they used to search if it is similar. This is done to help increase ctr due to exact match.

    I see you've changed the banner message. It'll correct itself over time.

    I'd also suggest rethinking your meta description as well. It's keyword stuffed, which has no real information about the page and consequently offers no value to the searcher -- thus it'll be ignored.
