After King Mondo is defeated for a second time, the Evil Space Aliens deliver Prince Sprocket a present as they have seemingly given up. However, this turns out to be a bomb and Orbus is destroyed with the rest of the Machine Empire Heirachy. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Good as Gold

In Space

By the time of the Cimmerian Planet conference for the United Alliance of Evil conference two years later, Klank and Orbus have been rebuilt and can be seen in the background. Tvicon.png TV STORY-From Out of Nowhere

When Dark Specter commands his forces to invade the universe, Orbus and Klank are joyful but are never seen again. Given the Machine Empire's inertness for another four years, they are most likely disintergrated when Zordon's Energy Wave washes over the Earth. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Countdown to Destruction

Personality

Like Klank, Orbus was intensely loyal to the Machine Empire, King Mondo and Queen Machina but would also obey anyone stronger than them like Louie Kaboom or Prince Gasket due to being cowards. Like Klank, he had a friendly competitive nature and was often at odds with Prince Sprocket but was willing to help him when it came down to it.
