The Ball Bot is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom television series. It is a mass-produced, sphere-based robot model created by Dr. Eggman.

Appearance

Like their name says, the Ball Bots are white spherical robots, whose size can be up to twice that of a basketball. They have a black equator and a single red eye with a black frame and a slit-like pupil.

History

TV series

Season one

Eggman attacks with Ball Bots

A quartet of Ball Bots were used by Dr. Eggman to attack Team Sonic. However, they were no match for the heroes, who used them against Eggman. The heroes even used a Ball Bot to decorate for New Year before turning it into a New Year's Eve ball.[1]

The Ball Bots would fight Team Sonic again later on, one time with Giant Robot and another during a raid on a toy-and-game factory, only to get destroyed in each encounter.[2][3] When Team Eggman was assembled, the Stunt Bears were given Ball Bots to use. As the Stunt Bears' team faction ambushed Amy and Sticks with the Ball Bots though, the girls took the villains out using the Ball Bots.[4]

Season two

A Ball Bot would be pitted against Team Sonic by Dr. Eggman during an attack, only for it to get damaged and be wielded by Knuckles.[5]

Powers and abilities

The Ball Bots can levitate, a skill which they use to ram their opponents from midair. They can also attack by rolling over their opponents.[1][4]

Akin to the Badniks, the Ball Bots are easily overpowered and very fragile: one blew up from hitting a tree and another was easily pierced with a wooden pole.[1] Also, they are easy for opponents to use as makeshift projectiles.[1][2][4]
