If we don't find your friend, can I be your sidekick? (...) I didn't mean anything by it, I just thought it would be better to work for you than Eggman.
~ Orbot to Sonic.

Orbot, formerly known as SA-55, is a major antagonist in the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise and one of two secondary antagonists of Sonic Colors and the Sonic Boom TV show.

Orbot is a round-like robot who is the programmed henchman and right-hand assistant of Dr. Eggman, alongside Cubot. He, most of the time, is a nuisance to Eggman and seems to get in the way.

He appears as one of the two secondary antagonists (alongside Cubot) of Sonic Colors, Sonic Colors: Rise of the Wisps and the Sonic Boom TV show, a minor character in Sonic Generations, Team Sonic Racing and Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom, a supporting antagonist in Sonic Forces and Sonic Lost World, and a major antagonist in the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics.

He was voiced by Kirk Thornton.


Sonic Colors

Orbot, one of two secondary antagonists in the game, first truly appears in Sonic Colors, working with his new sidekick, Cubot. Orbot is less sarcastic this time around and actually seems to appreciate Cubot to an extent. Outside of Eggman's base, they are only seen in Tropical Resort, chasing aliens and picking up debris and in the ending cutscene, in space. During the game, he tries to find the correct voice chip for Cubot, who changes his voices often, much to the annoyance of Dr. Eggman. After Eggman's defeat, he, Orbot and Cubot are sucked into a black hole. In the ending cutscene of the game, Orbot and Cubot are pushing the broken Egg Mobile in space, with the doctor talking about his new plan to take control of the world.

Sonic Generations

While Orbot never makes an actual appearance, in a flashback, Dr. Eggman abandons him and Cubot in space so he can use Time Eater to change history.

Sonic Lost World

Orbot reappears as a neutral character in the game with a larger role. After the Deadly Six hijack Eggmans Badniks, Orbot along with his creator and his partner, teams up with Sonic to defeat the Zeti. Orbot doesn't serve an important role in the story and mostly serves as a comic relief character. After Cubot's body is destroyed by the Zeti, Orbot goes for the rest of the game with his head attached to his body. When their party is assaulted by the Deadly Six while crossing the bridge, the robots fall into lava but are saved by Eggman and accompany him in his battle against Sonic. In the post-credits scene, they find Dr. Eggman after he had fallen off the Lost Hex with half of his mustache chopped off. Orbot tries to hide the fact from the doctor at least until he separates Cubot's head from him, but he ends up discovering it anyway.

Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom

Orbot briefly cameos as a NPC in Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom.

Sonic Forces

Orbot has an extremely minor role in this game and only has about 3-4 lines of dialogue. He again mostly serves as comic relief and doesn't have any real plot relevance.

Team Sonic Racing

Orbot plays a minor role in Team Sonic Racing, as he and Cubot were left behind on Final Fortress to operate it. He occasionally communicates with Eggman as he prepares his Death Egg.

Sonic Boom (TV show)

Orbot is a major antagonist in the TV series and appears in nearly all of its episodes, alongside Cubot.

  • Can an Evil Genius Crash on Your Couch for a Few Days?

He means since the boss said "nothing will stop me" and Sonic here is going to stop him, it's like the boss is calling Sonic "nothing."
~ Orbot explaining to Cubot of why Sonic was called "nothing" by Eggman in Sonic Colors.
Don't think about it.
~ Orbot in Sonic Colors and Mario & Sonic series.
On the bright side he's much more exotic now.
~ Orbot's response to Eggman's comment on Cubot's pirate voice chip in Sonic Colors.
The last laugh? How is laughing last so special? Isn't that like being the slowest one to get the joke?
~ Orbot contradicting Eggman after he says he will have the last laugh in Sonic Colors.
Alas, poor Cubot. I knew him well.
~ Orbot lamenting Cubot's decapitation at the hands of the Deadly Six in Sonic Lost World.
From where I'm sitting, it is a nightmare. Who thought that putting this bucket-brain's head on me was a good idea?
~ Orbot after having Cubot's head attached to him and disagreeing being a robot is not bad in Sonic Lost World.
The boss means business this time!
~ Orbot excited about Eggman conquering the world in Sonic Forces.
It appears they have taken our legs right out from under us. Quite impressive, really.
~ Orbot to Eggman about the Death Egg's destruction in Sonic Forces.



  • Orbot has one laser blaster with a net, but it's only seen in Sonic Colors.
  • Orbot's name is a pun of the words "orb" and "robot". It also sounds similar to the word "orbit".
  • In the Archie Comics, Orbot's serial number is SA-55, leetspeak for "sass".
  • Orbot appears to be closer to Eggman than his friend Cubot, and is possibly a higher-rank than him.
  • While Orbot and Cubot's exact ranks in the Eggman Empire are unknown, it is possible that they may be among the highest ranking members of the empire as they are Eggman's right-hand men, being slightly below Eggman himself.
