Hypno-bot is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It was a robot created by Miles "Tails" Prower for a fighting tournament, but was briefly stolen by Dr. Eggman and used for evil.
Built in the image of Tails, Hypno-bot is an orange humanoid robot with an ellipsoid torso, a dome-shaped head with two sharp fox ears, and thin grey limbs. It has thick orange forearms with grey boxing glove-like hands and red cables connecting them to the torso. It also has sharp orange boots, a pair of engine-like twin-tails reminiscent of Tails', and Tails' googles for eyes. Most noticeably, it has a protrusion on its front resembling the tip of a ray gun.
Hypno-bot was created by Tails to show Knuckles up at the Robot Battle Royale after the echidna challenged him. At the competition, Hypno-bot got to the finals where it faced Dr. Eggman's robot. However, it lost when Eggman took control of it with its override codes. Eggman then took it to Tails' home and had it take over Tails' inventions to form an army. Tails was able to reclaim Hypno-bot though and have it get rid of Eggman. Before Hypno-bot could be used for any future defense against Eggman however, it was destroyed by a stray robot.
Powers and abilities
Hypno-bot has the ability to take control of any opposing mechanical A.I. through its ray gun protrusion. This allows it to manipulate opposing machinery remotely to such a degree that it can make its targets self-destruct. This ability can be used on multiple robots at once. It is also fairly agile, capable of making leaps while dodging projectiles.
The A.I.s that Hypno-bot can take control of are limited to only those within one hundred feet. Secondly, robots without A.I. are immune to Hypno-bot's abilities, such as Vacuu-Fan 2000. Hypno-bot also possesses an override code, meaning those in possession of said code can hijack its controls remotely.
