Fictional biography

To say Minute Bot lives up to his name is an understatement. Frequently shoots off all his ammunition before the battle even begins, leaving his partner to rely more on his blurring speed than his gunslinging abilities. Often makes excuses for his lack of restraint, but the real reason is because he rarely sees action due to his partner being a courier rather than a warrior. He considers taking the little blue cog to help his endurance in battle. Maybe then the other Automated Robots will respect him instead of laughing.
