The Harlequin Force Stringbots (sometimes spelled "String-Bots") are highly advanced mechas engineered by the Haltmann Works Company for the Voice Inside Your Head. They appear in the SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Stringbots' design and abilities are inspired by Green de la Bean. (The Bean itself appears as a cameo in "Old Times".) The "Harlequin" part of their name also refers to the infamous "Puzzle Room incident".

They are tall filiform green mechas with red LED eyes and a painted grin making them look menacing. They are equipped with speakers on the front that they use as a sonic weapon to disperse rioters (which by the way is a real thing[1]).

They are also equipped with multi-purpose jet engines: those can be folded in the back and used as jet-pack for flight or be deployed as feet (which can still be used as jet-propulsed skates). They sport a blue paintjob with a yellow and black checkerboard pattern at the end. The Stringbots also have retractable arms with giant scissor hands. Finally, they are programmed to turn into a missile and performed a last resort attack if they failed their prime directive.

In the SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis[edit | edit source]

They are first mentioned in "No Place To Hide" when President Haltmann presents their blueprint to the Voice, mentioning that they are made with "all-natural renewable materials" allowing for a cost-effective mass production. They appear built "Old Times" in which they crowd control rioters with their sonic speakers (Haltmann later affirms in the episode "Haltmann" that they dispersed 80% of the riots).

Some of them were also deployed at Santa Claus' Worshop and stood in the way of his evasion when Nozomi and Meta Knight rescued him.
