''Zim: Why was there bacon in the soap!

GIR: I made it myself!''

I'm gonna sing the doom song now! Doom, doom, doom, doo doom, doom!
Guess who made WAAAAFFLES?

Peace is Nice, Peace is Nice

Peace is Better than, CHICKEN AND RICE!

Peace, Peace, Peace

Nice, Nice, Nice
Peace, Peace, Chicken, Chicken, Rice, Rice, Rice

~ Lyrics to GIRs song
Yes, Sir!
The knowledge… it fills me… it is neat!
You are no commander; you are a threat to the mission! Your methods are stupid! Your progress has been stupid! Your intelligence is stupid! For the sake of the mission, you must be terminated!
~ GIR to Zim
Back on Earth, mankind has reconstructed the planet. Everything is in GIR's image. Inside a gigantic fortress of GIR, an open-air throning ceremony taking place atop a huge staircase. GIR sits in a throne, surrounded by gargantuan statues of himself. Humans, wearing GIR suits serve him.
~ From an Unfinished episode in which GIR had accomplished something his Master couldn't

Background

GIR is the robotic assistant of Zim in Invader Zim. He is happy-go-lucky, extremely hyperactive, and the closest thing Zim has to a real friend. GIR will eat just about anything, regardless of whether it is edible or not. Most of the time he spouts nonsense and usually just fools around whenever Zim gives an order. However he does have a few brief moments of clarity: for instance, in "Walk for Your Lives" he actually contemplated whether making the explosion go faster would make things worse ("But if the big 'splody goes fast, won't it get all bad?"), and in "Bad, Bad Rubber Piggy" he questioned the wisdom of sending a machine into the past to destroy Dib.

Every so often, GIR will display brief instances of complete functionality. Usually triggered by Zim giving an order, this "Duty Mode" is made manifest by the teal parts of GIR's body and eyes flashing red, his voice changing from high-pitched to harsh, deep and rough, and GIR himself snapping to attention, alert and utterly obedient. He concludes it with a salute and response of "Yes, sir!". These random bouts never last for long, though, and after a few seconds, GIR is right back to his gleeful, hyperactive self. As it turns out, though, this brevity is probably a good thing for Zim: As he learned the hard way when he tried to lock GIR into Duty Mode via a Behavioral Modulator, if GIR was fully lucid all the time, he would quickly realize that his own master was a threat to their mission to conquer Earth, and would quickly eliminate him.

Varies (Should have access to all of Zim's equipment) from City level (Zim planned out and made a huge space station during a preparation sequence of 2 days which also involved him finding a way to get around his weakness to water and ending with him making a large water balloon that was resistant to the effects of atmospheric re-entry and could easily destroy meteors in it's way along with satellites, ending with it flooding the entire city[2]) to Planet level (Zim gains access to Mars as an entire vehicle that he can use to travel with and collide into objects[3]), up to Multi Supercluster level with Preparation (Zim created an object capable of absorbing infinite energy) Multi-Universe level via the Florpus hole (The Florpus hole is a spatial anomaly of which sucks in anything nearby and collide them with other realities)

Combat Speed: Superhuman

Reaction Speed: Superhuman

Stamina: Limitless due to being a Robot

Range: Standard Melee, Several meters with laser eyes. At least Planetary launching distance (Launched objects and animals out into space)

Intelligence: Varies but usually Mental Disability (GIR is a very naive, cheerful, and frankly idiotic for a robot servant. Often times displaying himself as a nuisance to his master, disobeying orders when given, and is frequent to out bursts. His low intelligence overall has been both an inconvenience and big help to Zim in certain situations. But still tends to be problematic and chaotic regardless. Despite all of this, GIR has shown a few instances of awareness and notable competence such as how he points out some flaws in one of Zim's plan[8] or questioned the wisdom of sending a machine into the past to destroy Dib.[9] Sometimes he even obeys his masters orders, once making him proud and happy. Can pilot the Voot Cruiser and has utilized Zim's equipments before. Wrote and sang a song that got children all around the planet to hold hands to help accomplish Zim's goal. In the Unfinished episode, The Trial, GIR managed to conquer Earth in one day, and he unexpectedly becomes a much better Invader than Zim. And unlike Zim, GIR is shown to be a benevolent leader, as humans seem to greatly respect and revere him). Supergenius while in Duty Mode (Far more competent and responsive than before, having lust for knowledge. Came to the conclusion that Zim was a threat to the mission, viewing his intellect and skills as something that would hinder the mission completely. Seeing him as nothing but "stupid". Drained a lot of human minds and obtained immense amount of Knowledge about the world, which would include notable Supergenius individuals such as Doctor Membrane. These were as a result necessary methods and plans he had quickly made in order to successfully take over the world, something his master has been failing to achieve miserably[10])

Equipment

None notable


Other

Standard Tactics: GIR is a wild card due to his very unintelligent nature, being completely unpredictable on what he'll do. In Duty Mode, GIRs behavior shifts to a more bloodlusted nature.

Weaknesses: Is too naïve and innocent to fight properly, and without Zim to command him, he's useless in the battlefield (Although in Duty Mode, those no longer become an issue). His low intelligence overall hinders his performance in a battle. Once locked in Duty Mode, GIRs behavior shifts to a more bloodlusted nature. Is capable of being easily distracted by other things and not focusing.

Battle Records

None.
