Character History[edit | edit source]
In Any Which Way But Zeus it is revealed that he is the sidekick of U.S. Steel. In the same episode he is kidnapped by Henchman Zero and brutally "killed" by Henchman 21 in gladiatorial combat. Seemingly unaware of his sidekick's immortality, U.S. Steel weeps when Ghost Robot fails to emerge with the rest of Zero's prisoners after they are freed.
He was however later shown to still be alive in the Season 5 episode Bot Seeks Bot, where he works with the O.S.I. to uncover some of the Council of 13 members. Ghost Robot goes undercover as Galacticon to meet Vendata at Chairman Wao's Chow House and attempts to pry the information from him under the context of a date. It goes south as both realize they do not eat food. Therefore, Vendata suggests they go to Don Hell's nightclub. Ghost Robot all too eagerly agrees, much to the chagrin of Brock Samson and Ghost Robot's other OSI handlers. Predictably, the operation goes south, and Ghost Robot requires Samson and Shore Leave to bail him out.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- "Ghost Robot" was Jackson Publick's oversimplified nickname for the Marvel Comics character The Vision, which eventually inspired him to create Ghost Robot.
- Although he seemingly died in Any Which Way But Zeus, Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick have stated he cannot be killed as he is both a ghost and a robot.
