Pirate Robot was originally intended to be created as a chef for Romeo, who had grown tired of Robot's poor cooking. Just as Romeo had loaded the necessary components into a machine that would assemble the robot, Night Ninja and his Ninjalinos, who were playing pirate, infiltrated the Sky Factory. In the chaos that followed, Night Ninja's pirate hat fell into the machine and was accidentally added to the concoction, thus resulting in Pirate Robot's creation. Pirate Robot immediately turned on his creator and became a villain on his own right.
Pirate Robot acts like a stereotypical pirate. He frequently uses pirate jargon, though with a robot-related spin on the usual phrases (for example, he says "shiver me circuits" or "shiver me screwdrivers" rather than "shiver me timbers").
Like pirates, he is interested in finding treasures. Despite being created by Romeo, he has no loyalty towards his creator and ditched him quickly after his creation.
He is on friendlier terms with the PJ Masks than most other villains, and Owlette in particular admitted that she considered him funny in "Pirate Robot."
