Cyborg Sticks is a character that appears in the Sonic Boom series. She is the cyborg clone of Sticks the Badger and a member of Team Cybonic. She was made by Bolts from Sticks' DNA and Roboken's technology for the purpose of helping Team Sonic defend Roboken from Hypnobot. Currently, she serves as one of Roboken's protectors.
Cyborg Sticks is the spitting image of Sticks, being almost identical to her in terms of anatomy. Cyborg Sticks, however, is made of a form of metal that behaves like flesh and fur. By comparison, Cyborg Sticks' body and hair have recesses and bolts along the lines of her framework. She also has gray metal where Sticks has peach skin, black shoulder joints, and completely light blue eyes with only slightly brighter irises. Her fur-based colors are also slightly darker than Sticks' and she has metal bands around her hair locks rather than strings.
For attire, Cyborg Sticks wears a metallic and flexible, yet otherwise identical version of Sticks' clothes. Like Cyborg Sticks, her clothes have recesses and bolts along the lines of their framework.
While on Eggman's soccer team, Cyborg Sticks wore a soccer uniform that included a black and red t-shirt with an Eggman Industries chest logo, long red socks, and red shoes with white tongues and black laces and soles.
Cyborg Sticks was created at the same time as the rest of Team Cybonic by Bolts from DNA donated by Sticks. Her purpose was to help Team Sonic take back Morristown when Hypnobot and Dr. Eggman invaded it with their hypnotized robots, and was designed with an organic brain so Hypnobot could not infect it. After getting introduced to Team Sonic, Cyborg Sticks and her team entered Morristown from the bunker of their birth. With Hypnobot unable to control it, Cyborg Sticks helped her counterpart (whom she steadily bonded with) and allies destroy the invading robots until Hypnobot was defeated and Eggman retreated with his army. Afterward, Cyborg Sticks decided to remain in Morristown (now renamed "Roboken") with her team to keep the city safe and avoid going rogue on earth.
Finding Eggman in Roboken again, Cyborg Sticks and her team attacked him until he revealed that he had come with a peace offer. While talking however, Cyborg Sticks, like her friends, got tricked by Eggman into wearing a mind control-bracelet. Now slaves to Eggman, Cyborg Sticks and co. were brought to Seaside Island to beat Team Sonic in a soccer match. With Eggman promising the cyborgs' freedom after the game, Team Sonic agreed to the match-up. However, Cyborg Sticks and co. proved too evenly matched with Team Sonic at practice, so they got reprogramed by Eggman to be meaner (but dumber) which gave them an edge. At the game however, Team Cybonic lost when Team Sonic exploited their stupidity. Cyborg Sticks proceeded to attack Team Sonic on Eggman's order, but the heroes freed her and Team Cybonic by removing their bracelets. The teams then got some payback at Eggman.
A biomechanical cyborg, Cyborg Sticks is intelligent and has both the free will and emotions of an organic lifeform. Being Sticks' clone, Cyborg Sticks is just as paranoid, wild, spunky and outspoken as her counterpart. This makes her so finely attuned with Sticks' way of thinking that she is able to finish her paranoid diatribes and conspiracy theories. She also shares Sticks' distrust of technology, which, ironically, leaves her unable to trust even herself. In fact, she believes that if she were to go to earth, she would become corrupt and enslave the population. That aside, she is just as committed to the greater good as Sticks is and is devoted to protecting Roboken and its people from evil.
Although partly organic, Cyborg Sticks is still a machine ruled by coding. As such, when confronted with something she cannot compute, she can freeze up.
Powers and abilities
Like Sticks, Cyborg Sticks is a great warrior with fearsome combat skills due to her wild side, and is proficient in the usage of different weapons, such as boomerangs and bōs. To compliment her staff fighting skills, Cyborg Sticks possesses wrists that can continuously rotate 360 degrees, making it easier for her to spin around bōs in combat. She is also able to fly using thrusters on her feet. Also, because Cyborg Sticks has an organic brain, her systems are immune to malware signals.
