They looked very much like Fizzwidget being robotic they had rolling balls for legs, and were instead their means of movement. It was used as a stunt double in dangerous commercials or when Abercrombie himself was too busy to show up for an event. They could be found on Todano, all day long, giving tourists tours of the MegaCorp Testing Facility. One also appeared on Planet Boldan in Silver City, which was eagerly awaiting to give customers the new Protopet in person.
It was through using the Bot on Boldan that Thugs-4-Less were able to capture Ratchet and Clank for the attempted murder of Mr. Fizzwidget.Using the bot was the only way to make an excuse to arrest Ratchet. Since this Bot was not the real deal, this was clearly not the case, but the Thugs took the duo away to the Thugs-4-Less Prison on Aranos on behalf of MegaCorp.
