Springtron is a playable fighter in ARMS. He and Spring Man both share the same default set of arms and function similarly as fighters, with the exception of Springtron's ability to disable his opponents arms and not having his arms perma-charged when his health is under 25%. He became playable in the Version 4.1.0 update.
Springtron looks almost the same as Spring Man, except he is a robot. He is made of grey metal, has blue eyes, spring-like ARMS and metal "hair" which is bent to resemble a spring. He wears a mask that covers his entire face, an athletic shirt, shorts and sneakers, all with the same black and red color scheme. He also wears a red chest plate featuring his logo.
"A lean, mean fighting machine designed and built by ARMS Labs! His metal body is inspired by the popular fighter Spring Man, and he's packed with the latest advances in fighting technology. With the goal of improving ARMS Labs's image by flexing their scientific muscle, he's finally been allowed to step out of the shadows and officially enter the Grand Prix!" —Official description
According to one of Biff's messages when fighting Mechanica during the Grand Prix, Springtron may have been built using blueprints stolen from Mechanica during a failed attempt at getting an interview.
Similar to Spring Man, Springtron is able to deflect incoming attacks with a small shockwave by charging after a dash or jump, and releasing the button before he is fully charged.
After a full charge, he rises from the ground and emits a huge shockwave that disables any extending arms within its range. During his descent, he also has a smaller, lingering "bubble" around him with the same effect. After this, his arms will stay constantly charged and his dash distance and speed will be boosted greatly. This effect lasts for approximately 9 seconds, or until he is knocked down.
In exchange for these benefits, Springtron lacks Spring Man's permanent charge at 25% health, and their movement in the air and on the ground travels with moderately less distance and speed.
