Past

Arms and Davy Sprocket with Sonic, from "Super Special Sonic Search & Smash Squad".

In the recent past, Dr. Robotnik gathered many of his old bounty hunter Badniks, including Arms. The doctor told them that he wanted them to catch Sonic, and if they did, he would give them one billion Mobiums. Immediately afterward, all the Badniks headed out in an attempt to catch the hedgehog when he revealed himself. Along the way, Dragon Breath told them to split into different groups to catch Sonic. Arms went with Davy Sprocket. When they found Sonic, he had them hold onto a rope and made them crash into a mountain, destroying them both.[1]

In the 16-bit version and 8-bit version of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Dr. Robotnik assembled many of his old bounty hunter Badniks, including Arms, and told them to kidnap the Beans that inhabited Beanville so he could turn them into robot slaves using his Mean Bean-Steaming Machine. Later, Arms was the first Badnik Has Bean battled and defeated.

Personality

Arms is an unintelligent robot, who can easily be tricked by his enemies. According to Frankly, he also gets very wrapped up in himself to do something useful.[2] However, he also tries to serve Dr. Robotnik to his fullest, as he wanted to make a Bean feast for him.

In contrast with his stupid nature, Arms is a very violent robot, who carries out his leader's orders without question. As a bounty hunter, he also loves money, and will do whatever he can in order to earn tons of Mobiums.[1]
