YMMV: Cubix: Robots for Everyone

  • Complete Monster: Kilobot is Dr. K's finest creation, one of the deadliest robots in the world, and the most depraved character on the show. Functioning as Dr. K's Dragon, Kilobot often causes far more destruction and chaos than remotely necessary. Such instances include: Derailing a Roller Coaster full of children, with heavy implications most of them died, when only ordered to attack Cubix; trying to thwart Cubix's attempts to stop a hurricane capable of destroying an entire city, when Dr. K wants to rule said city; using a dream machine to mind-control Bubbletown's robots, ordering them to attack their human friends, and attempting to betray Dr. K in the process; killing Dr. K's best friend, then scoffing at K's sadness because of it; stealing a cloning device from a robotics corporation, attempting to frame one of the heroes for it, and, when that doesn't work, setting a bomb in the building to distract Cubix long enough to allow him to escape. Kilobot then kills Maximix, betrays Dr. K, and plans on using his Zombot army to turn every robot in the world into a Zombot as well, then use them to conquer the human race. When his plans are thwarted, Kilobot makes one last attempt to kill Cubix by crushing his power core in his bare hands. Kilobot is also a vampiric Power Parasite who drains robots of their power source, leaving them in a death-like coma that can only be reversed by The Botties, a group of preteen mechanics that assist Cubix. Throughout the series, Kilobot goes to extra lengths, sometimes even interrupting his own fights, to attempt to murder The Botties, for no particular reason. Despite being in a fairly lighthearted show, Kilobot was a disturbing, wicked, and sadistic monster whose every appearance darkened the series considerably.
  • Ear Worm: The opening theme.
  • Fridge Horror: Imagine what would've happened if Kilobot was the robot Dr. K used the Solex to create.
  • Marty Stu: Connor comes off this way. His personality isn't well-developed or at least unmemorable and he was able to easily fix a robot that was considered unfixable in the first episode.
  • So Okay, It's Average: As the years went, it developed said reputation. Not terrible, but not especially memorable.
  • Uncanny Valley: Averted by making the robots look like toys, but used with the Robix spokeswoman with the purple hair. Even before The Reveal, there's just something slightly off about her.
