The Robot Elders are five Robots who rule Chapek 9, a planet inhabited entirely by robots. Over 400 years old, they were carved from meteorites by the robot separatists who founded the robotic civilisation on that planet. The one with yellow eyes is named Jimmy, while the names of the others are not mentioned.

They are, like most governments, extremely corrupt. Although they are well aware that Humans pose no threat to their way of life, they constantly spread anti-Human propaganda as a means of keeping their citizens focused on hating Humans and away from the planet's real problems, such as their own incompetence and corruption, and a crippling lug nut shortage (1ACV05).

One of them served as Chapek 9's ambassador to DOOP, and was also a member of the jury in the trial of Zapp Brannigan (2ACV02)
