Drill Bot strongly resembles Obliterator Bot. It has a black frame with thick red plating on its legs, arms, front pelvis and back, and has yellow two-toed feet. On each shoulder it also has a large cyan bulb. It is adorned with yellow hazard stripes around each shoulder, and on top of each shoulder and down its back it has a blocky speaker and an engine exhaust. It also possesses a blocky head with large lower jaw, cyan eyes and a mining helmet-like plating on top. Finally, it has a two-fingered pincher with hazard stripes for a left hand, and a large grey and red drill adorned with hazard strips for its right hand.
Drill Bot appeared as an actor in the mind-enslavement movie Dr. Eggman was shooting. In a scene where it had to fight Sonic the Hedgehog, Drill Bot engaged Sonic when the latter had been told that Drill Bot was mining metals for Eggman's army. While Drill Bot could counter Sonic's attacks, Sonic destroyed it by getting it to hit itself with its own missile.
While Drill Bot helped Dr. Eggman search for Ancient mech suits by excavating for him, Eggman would order it to fight Team Sonic after they arrived. Though Drill Bot got incapacitated when Sonic severed its drill arm, its still-active drill would dig down to the Froglodyte Caves and give the Froglodytes the means to go to the surface.
Powers and abilities
Drill Bot possesses great strength and reflexes, successfully deflecting all of Sonic the Hedgehog's spin attacks bare-handed. It is also equipped with a drill on its arm that it can use to dig up the ground, mainly for the purpose of mining metals and excavating relics. This drill is capable of operating independently, remaining functional even if it should be severed from Drill Bot's body. Drill Bot can also fire target-seeking missiles which are powerful enough to blow itself to pieces.
- Drill Bot's character model is based on Obliterator Bot's. In fact, the only difference between them is Drill Bot's hand drill.
