Role in the series
Orbot has a polished demeanor and speaks calmly and formally. Originally, he was rather robot-like, being logical and mechanical in both behavior and speech. However, his personality has over time become more jaded, giving him a wider spectrum of emotions and independence.
In spite of his demeanor, Orbot is sassy, straightforward and insensitive. He has an eye for efficiency, taking close notice of any flaws and unfitting statements, and will criticize others when he sees fit, though he only means to give constructive criticism rather than insults. Early on, Orbot was rather sarcastic and would insult others with snarky remarks, but he has since become less sarcastic and more formal in his approaches.
Orbot is honest to a fault and speaks without a filter, making him rather tactless when telling his opinions, such as criticizing Eggman outright and asking Sonic if he could become his sidekick despite Sonic being depressed over the loss of Tails. He is also somewhat lazy, showing limited interest in his assignments and often slacking off on the job.
