    —Drobot's official catchphrase

Drobot is a dragon Skylander who wears a robot suit. He first appeared in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, and is in the Tech element.

Background

Personality

Exceptionally intelligent, Drobot is driven by logic and the pursuit of knowledge. He can turn his hand to any technology and is ferocious in battle.[1] Drobot may be smart, but he never shies away from a fight. Instead of waiting to be invited to be a Skylander, Drobot sought out Master Eon and offered his services.[2] A super-genius, he analyses everything he comes across. While he seemed cold and calculating at first, the Skylanders soon discovered that he is as brave as he is intelligent.[3]

Biography

Dragons are smart, but none so much as Drobot. He was born in the highest reaches of Skylands, where dragons spent all their time competing in aerial battles. But Drobot was more interested in taking things apart to see how they worked. While exploring one day, he came upon some mysterious technology, which he used to assemble a robotic suit. Features include laser beams that shoot from his eyes, flight enhancement technology, a vocal synthesizer that gives him a deep booming voice, and the ability to shoot spinning gears. With such power – more than most other dragons – Drobot joined the Skylanders to help protect the residents of Skylands.

Story

History

As a young dragon, Drobot often felt like an odd one out. While his friends focused on flying, fighting and aerial frolics, Drobot spent his time studying gagdets and gizmos. One day, the inexperienced flyer was caught in a terrible tailwind and forced down to a desert island. To his surprise, he found himself surrounded by magnificent machines, amazing appliances, and clever contraptions. At once, he made the island his widget workshop. Before long he had built himself a brand spanking new robotic flying suit with sensational super powers. A vocal synthesizer gave his voice a deep sonic boom, his eyes fired laser beams and he could shoot spinning gears at lightning speeds. Nowadays, Drobot is a dragon master supreme when it comes to sparring in the skies. And, with his homeland suddenly starting to feel a bit small, Drobot flew out to seek a certain Portal Master and sign up as a Skylander.[4]

Skylanders: Lightning Rod Faces the Cyclops Queen

Drobot Flynn

Drobot saving Flynn from what remains of the Mabu's balloon.

Drobot was among few of the the Skylanders who participtated in attending the Annual Storm Titan Games to see Lightning Rod in action. Just as the event had begun, Lighting Rod's hammer accidentally hit Flynn's air balloon that was flying overhead, causing it to spiral out of control and sending debris everywhere. Drobot quickly dispatched to stop the balloon from crashing, succeeding in saving Flynn, Hugo, Double Trouble, and Squirmgrub.

When the Air segment to the Mask of Power was said to be in the form of the last Land Whale held within Tempest Towers, Drobot went with Lightning Rod, Pop Fizz, Double Trouble, Cali, and Flynn to retrieve it before Kaos could have the chance. However Kaos already knew the location to the Air segment and captured Cali for the path to the Towers. Thanks to Drobot's supercharged Afterburners, the Skylanders were able to whizz past Kaos through the Sea of Storms and reach their destination, despite Drobot's malfunctioning afterburners. As Double Trouble and Flynn kept a lookout for Kaos, Drobot came with Lightning Rod and Pop Fizz to get into the Cyclops city where the Land Whale resided in a collection of animals imprisoned by the Cyclops Queen. However the Skylanders were discovered, and the Cyclops Queen had Drobot and Lightning Rod thrown in the tank with the Land Whale to be eaten.

Drobot Land Whale

Drobot doing all he can to save Lightning Rod from going into the Land Whale's waiting jaws.

When the Land Whale was hypnotizing Lightning Rod into going towards its open jaws to be devoured, Drobot quickly distracted the beast in an attempt to save his companion, but nearly got eaten as a result. The robotic dragon was quickly pulled from the Land Whale's slobbering jaws by the freed Lightning Rod, and they made their escape from their imprisonment with Pop Fizz.

Outside the tower, the Skylanders saw Kaos and his army of Drow battling against the Cyclops Queen's forces, with Kaos winning the struggle. When Lightning Rod hurled the Land Whale far from Tempest Towers with Kaos giving chase, Drobot was confused to why the Storm Giant would throw away the Air segment. They immediately discovered that the Air fragment wasn't the Land Whale itself, but was really one of the towers of the Cyclops city, which was made of Cyclopnite, the heaviest stone ever mined, and the opposite of the Air element. With the help of a humungous Lightning Rod, the Skylanders returned to the Eternal Archive with the tower, and claim the Air segment to the Mask of Power, unaware that there was a traitor in their mist revealing the location of the Mask fragments to Kaos: Squirmgrub.

Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure

Even Drobot's powerful, flight-enhanced robotic suit could do nothing to prevent him from joining the other Skylanders in frozen exile when Kaos destroyed the Core of Light. He no doubt spent much of his time thinking up new gagdets to break the spell that locks him in toy form.[5]

Gameplay

Drobot can shoot powerful rapid fire lasers from his eyes using the primary attack button. With the secondary attack button, he shoots gears. He can fly after being upgraded with thruster flight.

Trivia

  • He resembles Festus from Rick Riordan's "The Lost Hero" book.
  • He also resembles the Steampunk Dragon from the app game, Dragon City.
  • Drobot relaxes by playing chess - against himself.[2]
  • Since he uses a vocal synthesizer that gave him a deep booming voice, it is currently unknown what Drobot's real voice sounds like.
    • Since he wears a suit that covers up most of his head, it's also unknown what his eyes and crest look like.
    • His robotic sounding voice resembles that of G1 Soundwave.
  • Drobot's name is is most likely a combination of "dragon" and "robot".
  • As a LightCore, the battlesuit core on his back lights up, resembling the afterburners upgrade. Also, it has the most dim effect and does not glow as brightly as the other Lightcores.
  • The strategy guide for Skylanders: Giants incorrectly states his catchphrase as "Seek and Destroy".
  • The Uranium Bladegears on the Clockwork Dragon path share the color scheme with his suit.
  • He, Trigger Happy and Spyro are the only non-Fire Skylanders who can kill Rotting Robbies in Spyro's Adventure. (However, this only works on the Wii version)
  • Drobot's original color scheme was reddish brown to most likely match the color of his element like the other dragon Skylanders. However, this color scheme is still used in Drobot's artwork in the games and in media.
  • His flying is quite different to flying of other Skylanders, since his flying is faster but harder to control. He also will automatically go forward even if you do not control him to go foreward, and if you hit a wall while flying, he will stop. He is the only Skylander to have an additional hover mode.
    • He and Swarm are the only two Skylanders who can damage enemies just by flying.
  • He, Drill Sergeant, Bouncer, Drobit, and Magna Charge are the only Skylanders who have robotic voices.
