Wombatman was an actor and the star of his own television series. Kid Icarus particularly enjoyed watching it; he was excited when he had an opportunity to meet his idol, but disappointed when he learned that Wombatman was mainly interested in enjoying his stardom while a robotic double performed stunts for him.
Wombatman later helped Mother Brain capture most of the N Team in order to protect his girlfriend Nikki, who was Mother Brain's prisoner. Kid Icarus refused to give up on his idol even after this betrayal, and convinced him that they could save everyone if they worked together. Encouraged by his fan's faith in him, Wombatman sprang into action and impressed everyone by performing his own stunts.
- According to the dialogue in "The Most Dangerous Game Master," Wombatman's real name may be Bruce.
- Wombatman owns a vehicle called the Wombatmobile.
