I feel powerful! I feel invincible! I feel pretty! I feel like flying! How about this? I'm... Super Robotnik!

— Super Robotnik, "Super Robotnik"

Super Robotnik[1] is a transformation that appears in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog television series. It is a form that Dr. Ivo Robotnik once assumed upon being dozed in a combination of chemicals.


While being Super Robotnik, Dr. Robotnik looks largely the same as his normal self, except that he is much larger and more muscular. He also wears a red bodysuit with a blue shield and a yellow "R" printed in it that covers his torso and his hands, blue pants and red socks. He later also began wearing the Rump Protector on his buttocks.[1]


TV series

Season one

Whilst cleaning up Dr. Robotnik's lab, Coconuts accidentally knocked a bunch of chemicals into a bathtub. When Dr. Ivo Robotnik entered the lab, he slipped on a mop and landed head-first in the tub. The chemical formula ended up turning him into Super Robotnik. In this state, he gained several superpowers that he used to freeze Sonic and Tails, throw them to the Frozen Wasteland of Mobius, and kidnap the Mobius' World Leaders. He then challenged Sonic to a gladiator contest; if Sonic won, he would free the Mobius' World Leaders, while if Robotnik won, the hedgehog would be forced to leave Mobius forever.[1]

However, Robotnik soon learned that he was still vulnerable on his buttocks, as it was not soaked in the formula that turned him into Super Robotnik. Coconuts therefore gave him a Rump Protector to protect his buttocks, much for his embarrassment. When Sonic and Tails discovered Super Robotnik's weakness, they got Professor Von Schlemmer to invent a powder that would be able to penetrate his weak spot and de-transform him. Whilst initially ineffective, Robotnik lost his super powers shortly before the gladiator contest ended, allowing Sonic to win the event.[1]

Powers and abilities

As Super Robotnik, Dr. Robotnik gains a vast set of superpowers that allow him to outbeat almost every opponent easily. He can freeze people, hear everything with ease, project lasers, see through obstructions, and a super-computing brain. In addition, he has gained enhanced speed and super strength. The upper half of his body appears to be completely indestructible.[1]


Super Robotnik's only weak spot is his buttocks, as it is the only part of him that was not soaked in the chemicals that transformed him. Attacking it will cause the doctor great pain. Professor Von Schlemmer managed to make a powder that, when exposed to this weak spot, eventually depowered Super Robotnik.[1]


  • Super Robotnik seems to be a parody of the DC Comics superhero Superman.
