The standard Obliterator Bot is a fifty foot tall humanoid robot. It has a black frame with thick red plating on its legs, arms, front pelvis and back, and yellow two-toed feet. On each shoulder it has a large cyan bulb. It has a toothless chainsaw for its right hand and a two-fingered pincher for its left hand. Around its shoulders and each "hand" it is adorned with yellow hazard stripes, 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 a large lower jaw, cyan eyes and a mining helmet-like plating on top.

A later iteration of Obliterator Bot had its chainsaw and pincher replaced with actual hands. It also had spikes on its gauntlets and yellow shoulders.[4] Another Obliterator Bot iteration used for Bot Racing is a lot smaller, and has a drill for a left hand instead of a chainsaw and a yellow-striped pincher for a right hand. Most of its outer armor is also colored blue instead of red, while its forehead and feet are yellow.[1]

History

Games

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice

Knuckles-bot vs Vote-bot

Obliterator Bot racing in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice.

In Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice, a scaled-down Obliterator Bot was chosen as one of Dr. Eggman's EggBot Racers to beat Sonic in a racing competition. Receiving Eggman's new Ragnium fuel and other upgrades, Obliterator Bot gained a massive speed boost and new abilities. When his turn came to race Sonic, however, Obliterator Bot proved no match for Sonic.

TV series

Season one

ObliteratorBotRampage

Obliterator Bot destroying Eggman's lair.

Obliterator Bot was first summoned by Dr. Eggman to eliminate Team Sonic. Mishearing Eggman's order due to some bugs however, Obliterator attacked Eggman's lair instead. As Team Sonic arrived to stop it, Obliterator Bot was distracted by Knuckles, Amy and Sticks while Sonic, Tails and Eggman reached its kill switches in the lair, allowing Sonic to knock its head knocked off with a metal plate.[2]

Obliterator Bot later returned to play a role in Eggman's mind-enslavement movie. During the filming though, where Obliterator Bot attacked the villagers, Sonic and Tails stopped it by knocking its head off with an Enerbeam combo. Obliterator Bot was soon after rebuilt in time to watch the movie's premiere, but when the movie turned out a failure, it was sent away by Eggman.[5] Another time, while Eggman kept Sonic at bay when they competed in Bro-Down Showdown, Obliterator Bot tried to destroy the Village. If Sonic faced the robot, he would be disqualified. When Knuckles tried fighting Obliterator Bot alone though, Sonic stopped it from killing Knuckles. The heroes then took the robot down, though not before it fired a missile that destroyed Amy's couch.[6]

Eggman soon created a new Obliterator Bot with a laser superweapon which he tested on the Village. However, Team Sonic arrived and defeated Obliterator Bot by frying its processor with its own laser.[4]

Season two

The classic Obliterator Bot was eventually taken with Eggman on an attack on Tommy Thunder. When Sonic came to Tommy's rescue though, he tricked Obliterator Bot to slice off its own arm before tying it up with an Enerbeam.[7] The robot would soon after serve as Eggman's bodyguard while he sold out spots in his underground bunker to the villagers.[8] Another time, Obliterator Bot participated in a battle with Team Sonic where it got its head knocked off by Sonic's spin attack.[9] Rebuild, Obliterator Bot was summoned by Eggman to get through the Unnamed Village's new defense, but ended up sending Eggman flying and shooting its own head off.[10]

Getting fed up with Eggman's callous treatment, Obliterator Bot joined Orbot and Cubot's strike action while also scorning Eggman's replacement lackeys. As it was about to give up though, Eggman cracked and agreed to treat it better (but still without respect).[3] Obliterator Bot later came with Eggman and his forces to attack Team Sonic. During the attack, Obliterator Bot tangled with Knuckles before getting taken out by Team Sonic's new ally, FriendBot.[11] Though it was soon restored, Obliterator Bot eventually got infected by malware from Hypnobot, who made it join other infected robots in an attack on Hedgehog Village. There, its rampage was briefly interrupted by Knuckles. Once Hypnobot's control was broken however, Obliterator Bot was freed and returned to Eggman.[12] Obliterator Bot fell under Hypnobot's command again though when he and Eggman made an alliance. Joining the villains' army for an invasion of Morristown, Obliterator Bot ended up facing the combined forces of Team Sonic and Team Cybonic within the city. In the end, it got destroyed when it got pinned down and Sonic and Cyborg Sonic lead a stray missile into it.[13]

Obliterator Bot, from Sonic Boom #5.

Obliterator Bot was summoned by Dr. Eggman to attack the villagers at the Eggtoberfest when Eggman failed to earn their trust. However, it was knocked over by Sonic with a giant treadmill.[14]

Personality

Under normal circumstances, Obliterator Bot is single-minded, ruthless in battle, and unwaveringly dedicated to Dr. Eggman's orders. While this behavior indicates a lack of personality, Obliterator Bot does possess an AI that grants it a degree of free will and emotional capabilities, allowing it to make its own choices and express feelings.[3][7] However, it is weak-willed and depends on Eggman to avoid being sent to the scrapheap, meaning it cannot act independently for long before coming groveling back to the doctor.[3]

Due to kinks in its initial programming, Obliterator Bot was not a very good listener, either completely mishearing or ignoring Eggman's orders.[2] This problem has since been fixed.

Powers and abilities

Obliterator Bot has high physical strength, capable of toppling large trees, smashing metal bare-handed and throwing large boulders with ease. It has also demonstrated impressive durability, enough to be unfazed by even Knuckles' strength.[6]

The standard Obliterator Bot possesses several type of armaments. This includes a chainsaw-like weapon which can cut right through metal, a laser cannon in its pincher, and missile launchers powerful enough to fell whole Ferris wheels.[2][6][14] It is also equipped with sound systems on its shoulders which can not only play music, but also unleash powerful sound waves with concussive force.[2][6] A later iteration of Obliterator was equipped with a magnifying glass-based wrist cannon which could concentrate solar rays into a deadly laser.[4]

As an Eggman robot, Obliterator Bot is also able to receive power remotely from Eggman's lair.[15]

Weakness

Being an Eggman robot, Obliterator Bot relies on Eggman's lair to provide it with power. As such, should the lair run out of power, then it will too.[15]

Trivia

  • In most of the cases in the television series where Obliterator Bot is defeated or otherwise incapacitated (excluding "Tommy Thunder: Method Actor" and "FiendBot"), it would be by an attack to the head.
  • Obliterator Bot has its own ignition keys.[16]
  • When Obliterator Bot gets angry, its eyes glow red.[7]
  • Obliterator Bot's body was used for the design of Decimator Bot.
