Moth Bot is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a mechanical moth-based robot created by Dr. Eggman.


Modeled after a moth, Moth Bot is easily about the size of a truck. It has a segmented, larva-like orange body with four thin black legs and a white underbelly which is separated by a black line and red lights. For a head, it has a round black cockpit with red outlines which has a yellow mouth area and a rectangular windshield. It also has two sets of light blue wings on its back and two red and grey antennas on its head.


TV series

Season one

Moth Bot was used by Dr. Eggman for an attack on the Village in the middle of the night. However, Moth Bot got distracted by a giant light bulb Knuckles brought while Tails dropped moth balls on it from his plane, allowing Sonic to defeat it with his Swat-a-pult.[1] Eggman would later use Moth Bot to visit Tails for a scheduled battle.[2]

Assembling a group of villains named Team Eggman, Eggman gave Moth Bot for Willy Walrus to battle Team Sonic with. At their attack, Willy and Moth Bot engaged Tails and his plane in an aerial battle, luring the fox away from his team. However, Moth Bot got destroyed when Tails made Willy fly it into a mountain.[3]


Like an actual moth, the Moth Bot is easily distracted by strong sources of light and will actively pursue them.[1]

Powers and abilities

With its wings, Moth Bot is capable of midair flight and is quite agile for its size, almost matching Tails' Plane in speed and maneuverability.[1][3] It can also fire missiles and shoot lasers.[2][3]
