-In the [[episodes:​1980|1980s series]], Atlas was built from the stolen blueprints used for creating [[characters:​Astro]] by the criminal [[characters:​Skunk]]. His facial features as well as body varies slightly, ​however ​are in the same proportions. Unlike Astro, he had a circuit known as the Omega Factor, a device that allows a robot to actively hurt humans. The original purpose of this being installed is because Atlas was used to commit crimes, however this plan backfired and he turned on his mastersalso developing a hatred towards humankind. Early in the series, Atlas' body was severely damagedalong with the household robot servant [[characters:​Livian]],​ who cared for him dearly.+In the [[episodes:​1980|1980s series]], Atlas was built from the stolen blueprints used for creating [[characters:​Astro]] by the criminal [[characters:​Skunk]].

-In the [[episodes:​2003|2003 series]], Atlas' real name is **Daichi**, created by [[characters:​Dr Tenma]] as a "​son"​ to Tokugawa, head of Tokugawa Industries (in a similar way as to how he created Astro for himself). At first, Tokugawa cared for him dearlyand even gave him a holographic atlas as a birthday present, saying that they will one day go to the Moon together. However, this never became a reality, and as a result of work Tokugawa started to become more harsh and cared less for his robot son. Tokugawa asks Tenma to erase his sons memory (even the good ones), as a result. Tenma oblidgeshowever ​installs the ability for him to "​transform" ​in Atlas. During a meeting, Daichi deliberately sabotages it, and changing into Atlas wrecks havoc. Astro attempts to stop him, however ​is no match for Atlas' strength. Atlas almost destroys him, however ​hesitates at the last second and spares Astro, claiming that they are more related than he thought, and they are "​brothers"​ (as they are built by the same person).+In the [[episodes:​2003|2003 series]], Atlas' real name is **Daichi**, created by [[characters:​Dr ​Tenma|Dr. ​Tenma]] as a "​son"​ to Tokugawa, ​who is head of Tokugawa Industries (in a similar way to how he created Astro for himself).

-Atlas stows away on a rocket bound for a moon mining site owned by his fatherand proceeds to destroy it. Astro also goes, and he and Atlas fight. Meanwhile, Tokugawa also heads there, ​realising ​that Atlas is too dangerous and needs to be destroyed. Tokugawa attempts to shut him down, however fails as Atlas knocks his plasma pistol out of his hand. Atlas proceeds to destroy his father, however his body has sustained too much damage ​as as a result he misses the shot. This opens up a space vacuum, and Tokugawa loses his grip, however Atlas saves him, and sacrifices himself since he cannot get back, drifting off into open space.+Atlas stows away on a rocket bound for a Moon mining site owned by his father and proceeds to destroy it.
