General Robot is a robot that presumably helped the Skylanders as their strategist.
General Robot is shown to have a fear of the supernatural and while he acts confident, it is clear that his troops need outside aid in order to accomplish anything. He is the father of Clam-tron 4000, who claims he was a very strict parent when Clam-tron was, "a few quarts of oil younger".
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure
