“Compute and Shoot!”
    —Ro-Bow's official catchphrase


Ro-Bow is a robotic one-eyed Tech Sensei of the Bowslinger Battle Class in Skylanders: Imaginators. He is included in the Lost Imaginite Mines Level Pack.

Background

Physical Traits

Ro-Bow is a robotic creature with parts of black and green metal and a single blue lens for his eye. He wears a green hood matching the green arms, the signature golden Sensei belt and a black tassel, and uses a red and gold bow with drill-shaped red arrows.

Personality

Though it's unclear if it was caused by the speech patterns or the other way around, Ro-Bow is prideful and arrogant, constantly taunting his enemies even after a victory and complimenting his own characteristics.

Biography

There is no record of the person who originally built Ro-Bow. By the time his basic systems were fully online, his creator was nowhere to be found. Ro-Bow searched far and wide, but since his programming was incomplete, he was unable to communicate with anyone. Eventually he stumbled upon the remains of an old lair that had been built by Kaos, and discovered a strange device inside the Matter Refactoring Room. Ro-Bow was able to access the device and download a staggering amount of information from it, which gave him the ability to speak, albeit in a slightly strange language, as well as shoot driller arrows with pinpoint accuracy. He also acquired a lot of details about Kaos himself. Even though Ro-Bow's past was a mystery, his future became quite clear - his new prime directive was to seek out Master Eon and help fight evil. With this incredible archery knowledge and skills, there could be no better trainer for the Bowslinger Class, so Eon made him a Sensei on the spot.

Trivia

  • Ro-Bow's "strange" speech patterns are actually internet terms and various slang, also known as chatspeak. Dreamcatcher also speaks this way, though to a lesser degree and willingly.
  • The Snapshot Head part for Imaginators greatly resembles Ro-Bow's, and is possibly a reference to the fact his head resembles a computer webcam. It is also the name of another bow and arrow Skylander, Snap Shot.
  • Ro-Bow unlocks the Cavalier Hat headgear part for Imaginators, despite wearing a hood instead.
  • While in turret form, he resembles the Personality Core Wheatley from the Portal franchise.
  • He is the only robot Tech Skylander to lack silver, gold and/or orange parts, the element's main colors.
  • He, Wild Storm, Crash Bandicoot, and Dr. Neo Cortex are the only Skylanders figures to also double as Adventure or Level Pack figures.
  • He resembles Robin Hood, a legendary heroic outlaw in English folklore who was a highly skilled archer, usually depicted using a traditional medieval cloak and hood.
  • During a Grind Challenge, Ro-Bow curls up into a ball and rolls instead of sliding on his two feet.
    • Also, he is the second Skylander to tuck and roll every time he jumps while Stink Bomb is the first.
  • His Sky-Chi "Ctrl-Alt-Defeat" is a pun on "Ctrl+Alt+Delete",a computer keyboard command on IBM PC compatible computers, invoked by pressing the Delete key while holding the Control and Alt keys.
  • Strangly, Ro-Bow's name is stylized in all capital letters in-game.
  • Ro-Bow shares some design characteristics with GunBot, both are one eyed robots that wear cloaks and use ranged weapons
