I'm gonna kick some butt.
~ RoboGadget

RoboGadget was the tertiary antagonist of Inspector Gadget. He was a complete robotic duplicate of Gadget, created by Dr. Claw from his original prototype android Promethyus.

He was portrayed by Matthew Broderick (who also played Inspector Gadget in the film).



RoboGadget was created by Dr. Claw to terrorize the city of Riverton to ruin the real Gadget's reputation and kill him.

In Inspector Gadget

In the film, RoboGadget has been sent by Dr. Claw to terrorize and eventually destroy the town of Riverton.

He is seen being programmed for chaos in Claw's lab in the first place. He creates absolute destruction by assaulting neighborhoods, civilians, and even the Riverton Police Department. He joins Claw for the enjoyment of watching Inspector Gadget fail, only to engage him in a gun duel on a bridge. RoboGadget loses this duel and has his head removed by the Inspector. His head is thrown in a river and it presumably drowns while his body runs around trying to find it.

During the end credits, RoboGadget's body is shown still running around and it finally bumps into the camera.


Unlike the good Gadget, RoboGadget was incredibly sinister and destructive, being created to lay waste on Riverton while serving as a new minion to Claw. And he is also known as rude, offensive, brainy, observant, grouchy, abusive, disrespectful, greedy, eccentric, treacherous, rough, outlandish, brilliant, obstinate, gluttonous, arrogant, dishonest, goofy, emotional, temperamental, insane, negative, sneaky, prissy, evil, cantankerous, tough, organized, roguish, gruff, aggressive, diligent, gluttony, envious and tenacious. Despite the difference between he and Gadget's personalities, RoboGadget does have the original's ability to extend his limbs.



  • Similarly, an evil clone of Inspector Gadget was seen in Gadget and the Gadgetinis.
  • There was also an evil clone of Inspector Gadget seen in the Original Inspector Gadget cartoon where he robbed a lot of banks in the episode, "Doubled Agent".
