Stealth Bots are a type of military robot created by Dr. Ivo Robotnik. They have appeared in two of the animated Sonic The Hedgehog TV shows and in the Archie Sonic comics.
In the Sonic the Hedgehog SatAM cartoon, Stealthbots were unmanned bomber craft with a distinctive wing shape. They fly at high speeds and are typically used by Robotnik to attack targets of opportunity, such as Freedom Fighter hideouts. They are equipped with thermal imaging scanners to detect warm bodies and they are armed with laser cannons and homing missiles.
Stealthbot (Sonic Underground)Edit
The Stealthbots in Sonic Underground serve much the same purpose as the SatAM Stealthbots, but they look completely different. These models are humanoid in shape, with cone-shaped heads and black colouring.
Stealth 'Bot (Archie)Edit
Stealth 'Bots only made a single appearance in the Archie comics, during the Princess Sally mini-series. These are nothing like the SatAM version, being humanoid in shape, 15 feet tall and incapable of flight. They were equipped with cloaking devices that allowed them to blend in with their surroundings and Robotnik used them to ambush Sally Acorn and her FF trainees when they infiltrated one of the doctor's factories.
