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.
At some point after Dr. Eggman disappeared, Cubot and Orbot were 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.
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 was heading towards Rough and Tumble, two skunks who terrified Cubot.
The Fate of Dr. Eggman
Some time after, Cubot was cleaning up the base when Neo Metal Sonic decided to move onto the next phase of his plan.
Battle For Angel Island
Later on, Cubot and Orbot joined Dr. Starline, Rough and Tumble in the Final Egg, where Starline sought to restore Dr. Eggman's memories after he lost them following the end of the Eggman War and became a reformed handyman. After three sessions however, Eggman showed no signs of returning to his previous personality. When Starline suggested a mental trigger, Cubot tried getting Eggman to threaten to dismantle him and Orbot. Eggman only dismissed this and affectionately hugged Cubot, declaring he would protect him. This left Cubot to wonder if Eggman actually gave an insult. Soon, the group was met by a badly damaged Metal Sonic. Upon seeing Metal Sonic, Eggman regained his memories. Eggman then ordered Cubot and Orbot to get him a change of clothes. Some time after, Cubot joined Eggman when he told Orbot to call up schematics on the Metal Virus which he wished to unleash on the world. When Cubot asked Eggman if he really wanted to go through with his plan, Eggman confirmed his decision.
While assisting Dr. Eggman in preparing some backpacks loaded with the Metal Virus, Cubot was sent by Eggman to bring Rough and Tumble to the hangar. In the hangar, Rough would kick around Cubot until Eggman gave them the Metal Virus backpacks (which he said were "back-ups" to use against Sonic). After being helped back on his feet by Orbot, Cubot saw Eggman present the mercenaries with a tank to attack Sonic and Amy with in Echo Mine. When the Faceship was later finished, Cubot and Orbot got onboard it with Dr. Eggman and Dr. Starline, where they launched the Faceship on Eggman's command.
When Sonic came to Floral Forest Village in the midst of a Zombot outbreak, Eggman ordered the Zombots to pile up on him. Cubot would report, however, that the Zombots were not responding to his command.
All or Nothing
Cubot witnessed Starline invite the Deadly Six onto the Faceship and watched how they managed to quickly overthrow the platypus and Eggman. He and Orbot soon received a message from Rouge, who had sneaked into the Faceship days earlier; Rouge requested for Cubot and Orbot to pretend that they were happy to now serve the Deadly Six so that she could coordinate with Orbot to spy on their deployments and coordinate a counterattack. Zavok continued to ask several questions about Eggman's whereabouts. When he questioned Orbot about what Angel Island was, Cubot interrupted and lied that there was a problem down in the Metal Virus factory. After Zavok left to deal with the alert, Rouge came down and told the two robots to send Amy the latest coordinates so that they could attack immediately. After Orbot asked how she would get the Chaos Emerald from Zavok, she stated that she was still weighing her options and requested that they continue to play along.
Soon enough, when the Faceship arrived at Angel Island, Rouge discreetly removed the white Chaos Emerald from Eggman's throne, depowering the ship. She revealed herself to Zavok and then told Cubot and Orbot to tuck and roll as the Faceship fell downward into the ocean. The two robots managed to survive the crash and stayed still on the land that was close down below. After both Sonic and Metal Sonic were pushed to the ground by a giant Zavok's breath, Cubot warmly greeted their nemesis while Orbot took notice of his infection and advised him to run away from the approaching Zombots.
Out of the Blue
A short while after Super Sonic and Super Silver undid the effects of the Metal Virus, Cubot and Orbot were found by Gemerl. After Orbot had informed Eggman of this, he sent Metal Sonic to attack Gemerl by impaling him. Metal Sonic dodged shots from Whisper and dropped Gemerl's body in order to catch Cubot and Orbot and then fly to Eggman, who was escaping Angel Island in the Restoration's Rescue Shuttle. When they got onto the shuttle, Cubot did his best complimenting Eggman. The doctor told him that there was no need to suck up to him as crashing the Faceship was a necessary evil. Some time later, in Eggman's lab, Cubot played with jacks in the doctor's office. Eggman entered the room, startling the two robots, and ordered a report. While Orbot updated him, Cubot grabbed a mop. He soon asked why Eggman was not taking a vacation from his last venture, even requesting to go somewhere nice like the basement. Eggman stated that this was because he wanted to act quickly before Sonic inevitably stopped and noted the fact that he would be powerless against the hiding Deadly Six since he did not have the Cacophonic Conch. Additionally, Eggman had Starline to consider, as he did not know where he ended up. Cubot simply replied to this saying that he liked Starline and he smelled nice.
Unlike many of Eggman's robots, Cubot is not a mindless drone and possesses both a personality and emotions of his own. 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, playing with an enemy, or making himself a prime target for abuse in an attempt to help.
Powers and abilities
Dr. Eggman is Cubot's boss and creator. In contrast to Orbot's dislike of their master, Cubot likes Dr. Eggman in spite of how the doctor preys upon his emotions and verbally abuses him. Genuinely faithful towards Dr. Eggman, Cubot once encouraged an amnesiac Eggman to abuse him in order to help him remember who he was, only to get confused when he showed him affection instead.
