History

TV series

Season two

MombotPlaydate

Mombot was built by Dr. Eggman when he wanted unconditional love. Programmed to be Eggman's ideal mother, Mombot would care for the happy Eggman after coming online. When Eggman moped over his latest loss to his arch enemy, Sonic, though, Mombot suggested Eggman got another career and began arranging playdates for him and Sonic (later accompanied by his friends) so they could make peace, much to Eggman's dismay. Meanwhile, Mombot disapproved of Eggman's attempt to impress her by defeating Sonic and eventually grounded him for it. Mombot was later given a world cruise by Eggman (so to secretly get rid of her), which she happily accepted.[2] Afterward, Mombot would get her own house outside Hedgehog Village.[3]

Mombot was eventually visited by Eggman and Morpho (the latter of whom she saw as her son too). When they began arguing though, Mombot gave them a timeout and told them to get along by working together to defeat Sonic. While the two would return to recover after their latest plan failed, Mombot was still proud of how well they had worked together.[3] When Eggman and Morpho visited her again so they could complain about each other, Mombot decided to take them, along with Orbot and Cubot, on a family vacation to a timeshare in Roboken that she had just bought so they could do some bonding. Although Mombot had a good time there, she and the others had to leave after Eggman and Morpho stole Bolts' smart chip. Back on earth, where they got cornered by Mighton, Cyborg Sonic and Team Sonic, Mombot ended up with the chip, prompting the heroes to rush her. However, Mombot was protected by her family, and Eggman returned the chip to save her. Afterward, Mombot was happy to see the newfound closeness her family had gained.[4]

HidingMorpho

While cleaning up, Mombot saw Eggman, who was being chased by Shadow, come to her home to seek Morpho's help. As Eggman went into hiding in another dimension, Mombot would help hide Morpho when he turned into a figurine (so that Shadow would not think he was Eggman in case he found him).[5]

Personality

Having been programmed be the perfect loving being for a supervillain, Mombot possesses a strong maternal personality and is filled with unconditional love. She is thus kind, encouraging, helpful, nurturing and caring when it comes to the overall treatment of her perceived children, whom she dots moderately while treating them with the best of care and intentions. She is likewise proud of her children for their accomplishments, no matter how lame they are. Her kindness extends towards others as well, like when she knitted a sweater for Sticks when she thought the badger was freezing.[2]

Although kind-hearted, Mombot is also overly critical and can be quite assertive and strict. If she thinks it will help, she will take charge when things do not go as planned, like when she arranged playdates between Sonic and Eggman so they could make peace and help Eggman overcome his obsession with Sonic. She will bring out some tough love as well to raise her perceived children properly. Nonetheless, she is always strict in a gentle way and behaves like this out of genuine love.[2][3]

Powers and abilities

Mombot possesses configurable hands which can turn into knives for cutting and knitting pins for knitting (the latter of which she has enough proficiency in to knit a sweater in a few seconds).[2] She also possesses telescopic arms strong enough to lift someone at Eggman's size with ease.[3]

Mombot has eyes installed in the back of her head (which ironically cannot be seen), making it impossible to surprise her from behind. She also appears to be a good cook.[2]

Relationships

Doctor Eggman

Dr. Eggman is Mombot's creator (which Eggman thinks makes him her "father" in some way), who created her to give him motherly love. Having been designed to be his mother, she sees Eggman as her legitimate son.[2]

As her programming dictates, Mombot loves Eggman unconditionally and will praise even his lamest feats. Personally, she wants him to become a real doctor. While Mombot takes care of Eggman with lots of love though, she has gone a step beyond Eggman's expectations by giving him some unexpected tough love too. As such, Mombot does not always give Eggman the support he hopes for, and will criticize him and do things he does not agree with to help him. She also thinks he has an unhealthy obsession with Sonic, which once prompted her to arrange playdates between them to help Eggman get over his animosity. She likewise maintains a commanding presence around Eggman and will ground him when he misbehaves. Despite all this though, Mombot always has Eggman's best interests at heart.[2] Also, despite all the issues he has with Mombot, Eggman ultimately loves her as well. In fact, Eggman once willingly put his own safety on the line and sacrificed his own plans in order to protect Mombot when she was about to get destroyed.[4]

Sonic the Hedgehog

While Sonic the Hedgehog is the arch enemy of her "son", Dr. Eggman, Mombot thought at first that Sonic sounded like a "nice boy", and would even pay him to have him attend playdates with Eggman in hopes of making them friends. When she finally met Sonic, Mombot deemed him a polite young man. She also shows an interest in Sonic's relationship with Amy.[2]

Morpho

Morpho is Dr. Eggman's robot doppelganger and accomplice. Due to how Morpho initially introduced himself as Eggman's long-lost brother, Mombot considers Morpho her son as well (no matter what Eggman says). Being the good mother she was designed to be, Mombot treats Morpho as well as she treats Eggman, be it either when showing him tough love or when praising him.[3] Morpho himself is shown to love Mombot so much (in spite of her strictness) that he would willingly put himself in harms way to protect Mombot when she was about to get destroyed.[4]

Orbot and Cubot

Orbot and Cubot are the lackeys of Dr. Eggman. Although the duo has not been shown interacting with Mombot very much, she still considers them a part of her extended family and treats them with both loving care and clothes.[2][4] This sense of affection is seemingly mutual, as Orbot and Cubot would willingly put themselves in harms way to protect Mombot when she was about to get destroyed.[4]
