The Combot army was originally designed to be an invincible army that would be launched against the Freedom Fighters, overwhelming them by their sheer number. The day before the planned launch, Dulcy Dragon overheard Robotniks's plan, and informed the Freedom Fighters. Sonic, Uncle Chuck, and Muttski planned on sneaking in and blowing up the place, but the plot appeared to have been derailed when Robotnik realigned Chuck and Muttski's minds, putting them back under Robotnik's control, making capturing Sonic easier. Eventually cornering the Freedom Fighters, Robotnik discovered to his horror that the Combots all started marching the wrong way. It seemed that Chuck and Muttski had Neuro-Overriders that negated the realignment. This allowed Chuck to not only free Sonic, but reprogram the Combots to march off a cliff and into the ocean. Humiliated, Robotnik retreated.
Some time later, a second wave was built to guard the now crippled city of Robotropolis, its defences damaged by a recent earthquake. These Combots had an unusual fuel that can cause a catastrophic explosion when the Combot is struck by lightning. When Sonic was caught in one such explosion, the chemical reaction caused Sonic to lose his speed, allowing Robotnik's Combots to capture the Freedom Fighters, minus Sonic, who had to dive into a lake to avoid another explosion, causing the Combots to think he had perished. The eventual Substitute Freedom Fighters rescued Sonic, and helped him break into Robotnik's base, distracting the Combots long enough to get the Power Rings needed to regain his speed and finish the Combots off.
After Crocbot's attempted escape in his nuclear-powered tank in Downunda, a bomberang from Walt Wallabee knocked the tank off course, causing it to crash into a crater (the former site of Echidnaopolis) and explode. Crocbot then planned his revenge after repairing himself with parts from Dr. Robotnik's supply blimp, and used the rest of the wreckage of the ship to make a small army of Combots to follow his orders. Crocbot then used the Combots to capture the Downunda Freedom Fighters and seal them in his new prison camp.
Crocbot later secretly planted a thermo-nuclear time bomb inside the Commander of the Combots who would bring mineral ore back to Robotropolis, hoping to wipe out Robotnik with the bomb. But the device was discovered by Bunnie Rabbot and Antoine D'Coolette however, and stolen for other purposes. Crocbot succeeded in shipping the ore to Robotnik via airbus, but just as the shipment departed, Crocbot and his Combot army then came under attack by the recently rescued Downunda Freedom Fighters. Crocbot was the only survivor of the assault.
One of the Combots from the Robotropolis battle survived, and ambushed Sonic,Sally Acorn, and Antoine D'Coolette. The battle left all three of them woozy, and they only accurately remembered their own roles in the fight. Sonic managed to shred the Combot's legs, and literally added salt into the wound by letting his speed throw sand all over the exposed circuits. Antoine then attempted to cut the Combot apart with his sword, but it's weapons were still functional. Desperate, Sally used her phaser to send a big rock crashing down on the Combot causing an explosion that left all three Freedom Fighters dazed and wounded, but alive.
