Tinbots are Elysians that act as security in SkyTown. Tinbots are one of the weakest enemies in SkyTown however and can easily be knocked down by: Charge Shots, Missiles, and the Boost Ball, or they can be melted by a single Charged Plasma Beam shot. Tinbots defend themselves using kinetic-beam pistols and tool-arms, both of which don't inflict much damage; they are also capable of entering Hypermode, which protects them from being knocked around or melted.
A Friend Voucher can be obtained by knocking over three Tinbots at once with the Boost Ball.
- "Tinbots are made from a lightweight metal an can easily be knocked around from explosions or high-speed impacts. This metal is also quite vulnerable to heat and can be melted by high-temperature weapons. Converted for security duty, the Tinbots now patrol SkyTown tirelessly. They are armed with kinetic-beam pistols and can use their tool-arms in close combat." — Logbook "Tinbot" (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
