Kriegstaffebots were heavily armed German humanoid robots designed and manufactured by Abigail Gluck to help her find the sixth piece of the Planispheric Disk. With her death, Professor Pericles began using the robots as his own bodyguards, ordering them to annihilate both Cassidy Williams and Hot Dog Water, and to find the sixth piece of the Planispheric Disk, which Gluck failed to find in her own lifetime.

Physical appearance

They are robots built to resemble World War II German soldiers, or a characterization there of. They have SS-styled helmets, glowing red eyes, and are depicted with either a large machine-gun for a left arm, or with retractable weapons within their forearms. They respond to spoken commands in English or German.

Powers and abilities

  • Gatling gun
  • Super strength
  • Super leap
  • Underwater jet propulsion


Early history

They were designed by Abigail Gluck to search underwater for the disk pieces. After she died, Professor Pericles took over the factory for the robots and used them in his plans.[1]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season two

Professor Pericles used the Kriegstaffebots to target Cassidy Williams. They eventually succeeded in this task by trapping her in the imploding underwater base; only her destroyed diving helmet resurfacing.[1]

The Kriegstaffebots appeared in Scooby-Doo's nightmare where they attacked him and Nova.[2]

Two Kriegstaffebots were used by Professor Pericles to grab Daphne Blake, as a way for Professor Pericles to obtain the completed Planispheric Disk. Fred Jones, Jr. ended up surrendering it to Professor Pericles and the bird , Brad Chiles, Judy Reeves, and the two Kriegstaffebots got away.

The gang fought and destroyed most of the robots in an underground battle to free the citizens of Crystal Cove.[3]

Several surviving robots went with the old Mystery Incorporated though the elemental dimensions to find the Evil Entity. Two were destroyed when the air gate was triggered, demonstrating its power as they were sucked through a keyhole. Under the orders of Pericles they executed their hostage Hot Dog Water after she temporarily turned the tables and made Pericles a hostage.[4]

The remaining robots were destroyed in a final battle near the crystal sarcophagus of the Evil Entity.[5]



  • Due to their appearance and the timeline they were created, it heavily suggests that Abigail Gluck was a Nazi scientist, or at least had returned to Germany during the Nazi buildup.
  • Kriegstaffebot may be a corruption or English transliteration of Krieg Staffel, meaning "War Season" or "wartime," thus translating to "wartime robots."
