The Ratbots are characters that appear in the Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a mass-produced, rat-based robot made by Dr. Robotnik that resides in the underground regions of Robotropolis.
Ratbots are large, rat-based robots. They have primarily black bodies, with a number of yellow circles around their necks and chest area. They also have sharp yellow teeth, feet with yellow middle-toes, glowing red eyes, and long yellow tails.
When Ratbots caused trouble in the pipelines near Lower Mobius, Griff, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sally and Antoine Depardieu went to check it out. While Sonic attempted to fight off the Ratbots and managed to defeat a few of them, the heroes were forced to flee when a larger variant showed up.
After Griff stole the Power Rock from the Knothole Freedom Fighters and returned to Lower Mobius with it, the Ratbots got through to Lower Mobius and began attacking the residents until Sonic showed up and put an end to them.
Powers and abilities
The Ratbots can discharge electricity from their tails and use them as whips to attack opponents.
Despite generating electricity, the Ratbots are still vulnerable to their own attacks if they are to hit one another accidentally.
