Serving a New Boss
Cubot and Orbot were later discovered in Eggman's last known lab by the Chaotix, who were tracking Eggman. Although the two robots were cooperative when the Chaotix interrogated them, they knew nothing about Eggman's whereabouts. (StH: #5)
In a secret base, Cubot and Orbot met up with Neo Metal Sonic, who was currently controlling the Badnik hordes. There, Orbot revealed in his report that Sonic the Hedgehog was heading towards Rough and Tumble, two skunks who terrified Cubot. (StH: #2)
Cubot is a diminutive robot, but slightly taller than Orbot. He has a black square head with a flatten, yet wider yellow square cap on top and a larger black square on the bottom, the latter which resembles a jaw. His jaw can separate from his head to reveal a light blue cover resembling a mouth. He also has two grey-framed and pupil-less light blue eyes. His chest consists of a smaller yellow cube and he has yellow gloves for hands. His arms and back consist each of two thin grey bars that are joined by a black and yellow ball joint. His lower body is a black open cube with a grey inside and a ball joint connecting it to his back.
Unlike many of Eggman's robots, Orbot is not a mindless drone. Described as a "dumb bot", Cubot is not especially bright. As such, he tends to do rather dim-witted things, like getting easily rattled by terrifying subjects or playing with an enemy.
Cubot does not possess any abilities aside from levitating and possessing intelligence. He aids Dr. Eggman in his plans. He also has skills in cleaning.
- Head writer Ian Flynn has revealed on Twitter that Cubot's measurements are the same as those of his game counterpart.
