The SWATbot is a character that appears in the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a Badnik series created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik. Serving as Robotnik's main workforce and soldiers at their time, they helped him steal all the presents from around Mobius on Christmas.
The SWATbots are cartoonish humanoid robots with drastically different designs and shapes for each unit. They can be anything between from tall and muscular with cup-shaped heads to short and stubby with no necks. Varying features include either trompets-shaped mouths, antennas, shoulder pads and appendages in different lengths.
The SWATbots helped Dr. Robotnik haul in the presents he had tricked from the residents of Mobius on Christmas. Many Santa-sentry SWATbots also guarded Santa Claus at the North Pole to keep him from interfering with Robotnik's plan. When Sonic and Tails arrived to free Santa, the SWATbots retaliated. However, Sonic incapacitated the frontline SWATbots and slipped through the rest before rescuing Santa.
