Fire Bot, also referred to as Fireman-bot, is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom franchise. It is a mass-produced robot model created by Dr. Eggman which are designed after a fireman. Ironically, they cause fires instead of stopping them.
The Fire Bots are humanoid robots. Their height differs between that of Sonic's height to twice that size. They have a long frontal red torso, round white shoulders, thick red and yellow forearms, thin and stubby legs with triangular yellow and red feet, and a segmented grey tail. They also have a black, featureless face with yellow eyes, and they wear a yellow fireman helmet with a black light on top and thin antennas. On their back, they carry two tanks with a hose-like staff attached.
The Fire Bot model used for Bot Racing is nearly identical to the original model except it has brown armor instead of red, and a red nozzle for their staff.
Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice
In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, a Fire Bot was chosen as one of Dr. Eggman's EggBot Racers to beat Sonic in a racing competition. With Eggman's new Ragnium fuel (along with other upgrades), Fire Bot gained a massive speed boost. When its turn came to race Sonic, however, Fire Bot proved no match for Sonic.
A lone Fire Bot was send on a rampage in the Unnamed Village by Dr. Eggman where it faced Team Sonic. While fighting the heroes, Fire Bot kept wrecking havoc until Sonic tied it up with its own hose, causing it to explode. Three Fire Bots, along with Eggman's Badniks, were later sent by Eggman to attack Sonic as payback for ruining his snack, but they were all destroyed when Sonic's team came to his aid.
After getting scolded by Eggman for trying to clean up his mess, a Fire Bot joined Orbot and Cubot's strike action while also scorning Eggman's replacement lackeys. As it was about to give up though, Eggman cracked and agreed to treat it better (but still without respect).
Being the "evil opposite of a fireman", the Fire Bots behave in the exact opposite way of an actual fireman, such as starting fires, getting babies into burning houses and putting cats up trees. Because they are designed for combustion however, they do not know how to carry out more delicate tasks, like cleaning, on their own, and their best answer to issues is burning them to ashes.
Completely silent, the Fire Bots are on the most part ruthless when fighting, single-minded and unquestioningly dedicated to Eggman's orders. They do possess a degree of free will and emotional capabilities however, allowing them to make their own choices and express things like dislikes. However, the Fire Bots are weak-willed and depend on Eggman to avoid being sent to the scrapheap, meaning they cannot act independently for long before coming groveling back to the doctor.
Powers and abilities
Fire Bots carry around hose equipment and tanks that let them spew flames of varying intensity, from regular fire hot enough to instantly incinerate wood to much more intense blue flames. As Eggman robots, they are also able to receive power remotely from Eggman's lair.
