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

Appearance

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 and black cockpit with red outlines. This section 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.

History

TV series

Season one

MothBotBulb

Moth Bot distracted.

Moth Bot was first used by Dr. Eggman for an attack on the Village in the middle of the night. However, it got distracted by a giant light bulb Knuckles brought while Tails dropped moth balls on it from his plane, allowing Sonic to defeat Moth Bot 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 to 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]

Season two

MothBothDefeated

Moth Both getting defeated by Tails and Cyborg Tails.

When Hypnobot took control of the Cubot prototypes, he had them pilot Moth Both during his and Eggman's invasion of Morristown. There, Moth Bot met opposition from Team Sonic and their allies, until the heroes fell back when Hypnobot began turning the robots in the city against them. Still, Moth Bot was defeated when Tails returned to the battle and took it out with the aid of Cyborg Tails.[4]

Personality

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] As an Eggman robot, Moth Bot is also able to receive power remotely from Eggman's lair.[5]

Weakness

Being an Eggman robot, Moth Bot relies on Eggman's lair to provide it with power. As such, should the lair run out of power, then it will too.[5]
