He has a grey nose, an oval-shaped head with three black lines, sharp white teeth, red orbs with a silver ring around it on his collarbone, a red u shaped marking on both shoulders, screws in his neck and on his torso, black triangles on the back of his hands and on top of his feet and a small, pointed tail.

As Dober is the last boss of the main game's storyline, he can be tough to defeat. He will move around rapidly, delivering punches in rather small amounts. A ranged weapon is an ideal way to defeat him, and either using Wild Boy or Sky Snaker to improve the damage dealt.
Dober's stronger attacks are harder to avoid, because they cover a large part of the battlefield but they can be easily avoided if the player dodge-rolls at the right time allowing them to pose easier and fill up the transformation meter faster. If the player keeps attacking Dober, he will unleash a laser attack that will follow the player but will stop if they avoid it for long enough.
His second form is harder to take out, due to it being faster and stronger. He also introduces a new attack (that covers the entire battlefield) where the player must perfectly time their dodge rolls. Getting hit by Dober's strong attack will make the player freeze and force them to wiggle around their joystick fast enough so they can heal.
Dober comes from the word "Doberman" the breed of dog on which the character is based.
- Unique from other final bosses, Dober does not have a unique form for his second phase, but rather a stronger recolored version of himself.
- Dober Vader is heavily based on Darth Vader from Star Wars franchise.
