History

TV series

Past

While serving T.W. Barker, Stunt Bear No. 1 and its partner were the only ones who stayed with Barker after his captive performers fled.[3]

Season one

StuntbearsAtWork

When Barker got Team Sonic to pitch in for a performance, Stunt Bear No. 1 helped put on a good show the following evening. As Barker later unveiled his plans to keep Team Sonic, Stunt Bear No. 1 helped encage the heroes. Soon after, it tried stopping the heroes when they escaped with Tails' aid, but was taken out by Sticks the Badger.[3]

Another time, Stunt Bear No. 1 and its partner joined the auditions for Bro-Down Showdown and got selected. However, when Stunt Bear No. 2 could not answer the question about when they first met, Stunt Bear No. 1 attacked him, causing them to be disqualified.[1]

Team Eggman

Stunt Bear No. 1 and its associates later joined other local villains at a meeting held by Dr. Eggman at his lair, who wanted them to form a team to beat Team Sonic. After some leadership arguments leading to team exercises, Stunt Bear No. 1 opted for Eggman's leadership so the group could prove themselves after Shadow the Hedgehog had left the group criticizing them. At the attack on Team Sonic, Stunt Bear No. 1 helped its team faction ambush Amy and Sticks with a Ball Bot, but was defeated.[4]

Season two

When T.W. Barker sold Knuckles a house, Stunt Bear No. 1 and its partner helped him strong-arm Knuckles for the unfair fees he owed and threaten Knuckles to follow his contract. When Knuckles brought his team in however, the Stunt Bears got scared off by Amy after she made Barker revoke Knuckles' contract.[5] Having seen the success of Muckfoot Mania, Stunt Bears No. 1 came along on Barker's world tour that would show Knuckles (trapped and in the guise of Muckfoot) to the rubes for a fee. Stunt Bear No. 1 and its allies fought Team Sonic when the heroes came for Knuckles, but they lost when the heroes fed them sleepwalk-inducing berries.[6]

Personality

Stunt Bear No. 1 is highly intelligent for an animal, capable of understanding normal language and expressing human-like behavior. However, it can only speak in grows and roars. It is also well-trained and loyal, obeying T.W. Barker's every order and standing by him despite Barker's known mistreatment of his performers.[3][4] Regardless, it has a bad temper as seen when it quickly began fighting Stunt Bear No. 2 when it got facts about their friendship wrong.[1]

Powers and abilities

Stunt Bear No. 1 has high physical strength, being capable of restraining even Knuckles (albeit with the aid of Stunt Bear No. 2).[3] It also has good balance as it can stand perfectly on top of a rolling Ball Bot or a unicycle.[3][4]
