* EnemyMine: While Sonic was initially mad about being tricked, Naugus points out that Sonic should be glad he's released since he's going to get rid of [[BigBad Robotnik]] and is even nice enough to let Sonic go back and rescue his friends from the void. Though WordOfGod is that he'd have become more antagonistic towards the Freedom Fighters in Season 3.

%%* KnightTemplar
* SealedEvilInACan: In both [=SatAM=] and the comics, Naugus spent years trapped in the Void/Zone of Silence (the name depends on the continuity). In the comics, he escaped and was resealed several times before escaping permanently. In the cartoon, he escapes once but willingly returns once he realizes all the time spent in the Void made him unable to withstand being out of it for long, though WordOfGod say that he would've eventually escaped permanently in the cartoon as well (or rather he did at the very end of Season 2).

* KnightTemplar: He wants the same thing the Freedom Fighters want: to kill [[EvilOverlord Robotnik.]] The problem is, he will do absolutely anything to do it, with zero concern for anything that gets in his way.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Granted Robotnik was a manipulative mastermind, but anyone who puts his entire army in the hands of [[ObviouslyEvil that guy]] isn't the most savvy of people.

* AdaptationalBadass: Satam Robotnik is more smart and evil than any other versions. Also, he's the only one among other Robotnik's counterparts who succesfuly took over the world with no problems at all.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Before this show aired, Robotnik was either portrayed as LaughablyEvil or an [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Incredibly]] LargeHam, [=SatAM=] not only showed his actions in a more serious and sinister light but it also made him a [[NotSoHarmlessVillain legitimate threat]].
* AxeCrazy: Can be this at times, mostly in the second season.

* BadBoss: Frequently takes losses out on Snively, [[NeverMyFault even ones he had no direct responsibility for]]. He outright sentences Snively to die in their imploding lab out of fury of his final defeat in the show (ironically this act would end up saving Snively who escaped through safer means than him). Even in his better moods, his relationship with his nephew is not affectionate to say the least.

* BigBad: Though this was going to switch over to Naugus in Season 3.
* BlackEyesOfCrazy: They’re black pits with ominous glowing red lights. It's subtly implied they're cybernetic; one episode has the irises ''light up like flashlights'' after the power is knocked out and his room is plunged into darkness.
* CardCarryingVillain: He’s quite boastful of his evil.
* TheComicallySerious: He does have his moments every now and then.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In Season One, he has noticeable bouts of this, even playing on Sonic's flaws at times, and at least once actually ''would'' JustShootHim. [[{{Flanderization}} Not as prominent]] in Season Two (see StupidEvil).
* EmperorScientist: [[DownPlayedTrope Surprisingly downplayed]] considering who we're talking about here. He's far more emperor than he is scientist here, though he does apparently design all of his machines. He is even shown manually working on a machine on at least one occasion.
* EvilOverlord: There's a reason the Freedom Fighters want him overthrown.

* FatBastard: He's definitely one of the bigger Robotniks, even larger than the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog incarnation.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He appears to be polite and gentlemanly but don't let that fool you. He's notorious for his skills of deception and persuasion.

* KnightOfCerebus: Unlike most other counterparts of the doctor, Robotnik's actions are depicted in a far more serious and sinister light, his comedic aspects being more subtle and sparse. Lightened in the second season, where we are introduced to an entity that makes even him cower in fear.
* LargeHam: While not as extreme as his [[WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgeHog previous incarnation]], this Robotnik was still pretty hammy, with his heavy breathing, low voice, and long pauses. Though these qualities were mostly present in the second season.

** In fact, his whole use of roboticized Mobians as slave workers showcases this side of him nicely. Aside from the dark practicality of turning his enemies into mindlessly loyal robot slave-workers instead of just executing them, he can then use the love and loyalty of any escaped Mobians against them. Even if they don't succumb to the urge to try and "rescue" a Robian, who will then capture them for Robotnik, the Freedom Fighters ''can't'' use more dramatic methods of fighting against Robotnik's rule. After all, everyone knows that roboticization can be undone; with that in mind, how can Mobians countenance killing their unfortunate family, friends and loved ones by doing things like blowing up Robotnik's factories, even if that would impede Robotnik's empire far more than generator sabotage and virus uploads would?
* NotSoAboveItAll: Though the show boasted a far more sinister and fearsome rendition of the doctor, he couldn't go ''completely'' without comical moments. His fear-driven demeanour throughout "The Void" in particular is quite clownish. WordOfGod states he would be reduced to playing Snively's toady role for Naugus in Season Three.

* NoNonsenseNemesis: In Season One, Robotnik was plainly shown to be [[TheUnfettered completely without limitations.]] ''[[EstablishingCharacterMoment In his very first appearance]] in the LighterAndSofter [[{{Pilot}} pilot episode,]]'' it was shown very plainly that he actually ''would'' [[JustShootHim just kill]] or [[UnwillingRoboticization immediately roboticize]] any of his enemies at the first opportunity he got, [[https://youtu.be/a5G2ZB450CU?t=177 with no warning or scruples.]] In the DarkerAndEdgier episodes that followed, this trait was only magnified, resulting in him using any personality flaws and or feelings of attachment he could see in others as weapons against them. This is [[{{Flanderization}} not as prominent]] in Season Two (see StupidEvil), but still factors into his characterization late into the series.

* RedEyesTakeWarning: The red lights in his eyes flare when he gets pissed.

to:

* {{Pride}}: While this version of the doctor is genuinely calculating and dangerous, his FatalFlaw is still his arrogant over assurance he is invincible. As the series progresses, he starts to display more foolish and deluded aspects, and ultimately his own downfall is caused primarily by careless oversights and blunt refusal to accept any possibility that Sonic was capable of defeating him.

* StupidEvil: More so in Season 2. While in his past he was able to make lengthy charades to maintain his plans for power, by Season Two, Robotnik just can't resist [[KickTheDog Kicking The Dog]] at the most inappropriate time.
* TheSociopath: A very chilling example. Robotnik only cares about himself and his empire. Everything else is just something for him to use or destroy.
* TookALevelInBadass: Compared to other incarnations at the time of course.
