After Doctor Robotnik was deposed, he stopped building many of his older Badnik models, Moto Bugs among them. However, the Doctor Robotnik Appreciation Tribe (D.R.A.T.) had acquired the plans to build their own without the need for organic batteries like most Badniks.Several notable Moto Bugs have appeared in Sonic the Comic, particularly one being the very first Badnik to be smashed in the comic (housing a chicken). The next one to appear was the only one to survive Sonic the Hedgehog's attack on the Marble Zone and almost got Sonic crushed. One was seen leading the fight against the Hidden Zone. They were the main focus in No More Mr. Nice Bug, where Porker Lewis designed a virus that turned them into a Nicenik variety of robot. Moto Bugs were also the basis of two of The Seven Badniks, namely Metamoto and Motobotnik.
