Cubot mainly assists the doctor in his schemes for world domination, with his partner Orbot working alongside him to perform various duties. While loyal to Eggman, Cubot is dim-witted and lazy. Also, depending on the voice chip currently inserted into him, his accent and personality changes.
In his debut game, Cubot works alongside Orbot to round up wayward Wisps for Eggman. His voice processor is stuck on "cowboy mode" due to having the wrong chip installed when he was built. Later on in the game, this is fixed but then he has a pirate accent. Only in the final cutscene does his actual voice return after being slapped in the back by Orbot. After the defeat of his Nega-Wisp Armor at Sonic's hands, Eggman is thrown into outer-space along with Orbot and Cubot, much to the doctor's chagrin.
Orbot and Cubot make a short appearance in Sonic Generations. In a flashback narrated by the modern Dr. Eggman, it is explained that after being sent into deep space at the end of Sonic Colors, Dr. Eggman and his hench-bots encountered a primordial form of what eventually became the Time Eater. Detecting its unique abilities to erase time and space, Eggman immediately schemes to exploit it for his own benefit. Orbot and Cubot are last seen pushing Eggman's crippled mobile into the anomaly before it disappears with their creator.
Orbot and Cubot somehow return from space to accompany Dr. Eggman once again in Sonic Lost World, this time with a different-sounding voice that sticks with him for future appearances. When the Deadly Six rebel against Eggman, Orbot and Cubot manage to escape, but Cubot loses his body during the attack and his voice chip malfunctions, reverting back to "pirate mode". Afterwards, they and Eggman have to accompany Sonic and Tails. In Frozen Factory, Tails repairs his voice chip, and Orbot tries to give Cubot some replacement bodies, such as a snowman and a Crabmeat that don't work out. Later on in Sky Road, Eggman attaches Cubot's head to Orbot's body as a temporary solution to his missing body problem. At the end of the game, Orbot and Cubot pull Eggman out from the ground after his fall, and return home so Cubot can be repaired.
Orbot and Cubot appear as major characters in the Sonic Boom TV series, looking virtually unchanged from their main series counterparts. The two have had a few episodes focusing on themselves, including searching for Eggman after he goes missing, and being uploaded to a computer game to defeat a virus named Nominatus. In one other episode, the two robots discover a valley full of rejected Cubot prototypes.
Cubot continues to assist Dr. Eggman during the story of Sonic Runners, where he would be assigned to tasks such as rounding up Animals to place into Badniks. More often than not, his low intelligence causes him to be tricked by Team Sonic into treating the team as his friends, allowing them to throw wrenches into many of Eggman's plots, prompting Eggman to scold Cubot. In the endgame, Cubot becomes sick of Eggman's abuse and goes on strike, telling Team Sonic of a trap Orbot had set up for them when they arrived at Eggman's HQ to stop his final plan.
