* BrokenBird: Robot Jones goes through this many times in the series, with all the ENORMOUS amount of pain he endured in his life. From his own crush whom [[AllergicToLove methane apparently prevented him from having his chance]] reject him EVERY time, is bullied by two kids, has very little friends who look up to him, is very easily nervous, and humans constantly pick on him.



* CorruptTheCutie: Robot is adorable, but he has had a EXTREMELY harsh life, was always misunderstood and picked on by even his idols, and had excessive HeroicBSOD.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Poor Robot had the worst life anybody could ever live. And WordOfGod says the final episode was intended to be about him conquering the world as revenge for what humans put him through.

*** Turns out the reason why Principal Madman resembles Hitler is because according to Greg Miller, Principal Madman was created with the intent of being voiced by Les Lye from "You Can't Do that on Televison" as he has played a teacher named "Mr. Schidtler" who also happens to resemble Hitler. However it couldn't be done since Les Lye lives in Canada.

* {{BrokenAesop}}s and {{FamilyUnfriendlyAesop}}s can appear as a result too, e.g. by the end of "Work" Robot concludes "work is for suckers" despite the fact that work is what got him the money he needed to begin with.
