- "Hrrrmmpph. When I need a job done right... I'll do it myself."
- ―Chief Executive Officer
The C.E.O. possesses a Skelecog-like head and is dressed in a golfer's attire that seems to be bolted to his body. Like the Vice President and the Chief Financial Officer, he sits on a gear-shaped podium and has an undercarriage (except his never seems to open). He has two sets of eyes and teeth on the front and the back of his head. Light bulbs and jaws also stick out of his neck, some of which resemble golfing clubs.
Before feeding round:
- "What's taking so long? Get cracking and serve my banquet!"
During feeding round:
- "Now, let's get down to business..."
- "Please review the foreword for today's meeting - I listed several great links in there."
- "This year we've made a significant increase in our average CUP. That is, Course Under Par."
- "Due to our big swing this quarter, sales are predicted to land a hole-in-one."
- "None of you will ever make it in business without following through. That's the key to good swing."
- "I'm going to table that to make room for the main course."
- "Where is my slide deck for this meal? We must go over the topics to be consumed."
- "And now, refer to the chart on page seven for a detailed look at our projected line of flight."
- "There are job openings in dining services for the country club. My last staff of waiters was attacked by Toons."
- "I see someone spilled oil on the seat. You can pack up your desk after the meeting."
- "Waiters, you'll find yourselves out of a job if my guests aren't kept fed."
- "I'll need all of you to come in on Saturday for the Stock Option report."
- "I expect everyone's promotion paperwork to be filed by the end of this banquet."
- "Save all questions for two to three business days, and allow at least two weeks processing time."
After feeding round:
- "What's happening here?! I knew it from the start. The waiters are TOONS!"
- "Why are you all sitting around? GET THEM!!!"
Before final round:
- "Hrrrmmpph. When I need a job done right... I'll do it myself."
During final round:
- "No! Gah! The Chairman won't like this... Arrrggghhh!!!"
In order to battle the C.E.O., Toons must earn parts for their Bossbot Cog Disguise by completing Shep Ahoy's ToonTasks, which can be done after completing ToonTasks from Donald's Dreamland and ToonTasks for the Lawbot Cog Disguise.
The boss battle begins with the introduction of Good ol' Gil Giggles, who explains to incoming Toons that the C.E.O. is hosting a banquet at the time of their arrival and that the banquet needs to be infiltrated. Good ol' Gil Giggles then removes the Toons' Bossbot Cog Disguises and states that suit parts from the Cogs need to be collected for Toons to disguise themselves as waiters, thus initiating the first Cog battle round.
First round: Waiter Cog battle
The first round consists of waiter-suited Version 2.0 Cogs; every Cog fought in this battle (with the exception of the C.E.O. himself) is a Version 2.0 Cog. The Toons in the battle face off against thirty Cogs collectively, with two separate groups of four Toons contributing to the number of Cogs defeated. The Cogs in this round range from level 9 to level 12, so Cogs in the round can spawn as either a Downsizer, a Head Hunter, a Corporate Raider, or a Big Cheese.
Assuming every participating Toon is in possession of Sound, a good strategy to follow in this round is to allow each individual Toon of the group to use one Foghorn combined with three Elephant Trunks being used by the other Toons. The Toon that starts off with a Foghorn at the beginning of the battle is usually on the far left of the player's computer screen and then continue from left to right. This is good for preserving Sound, as Toons will run out of Sound very quickly if they use 2 or 3 Foghorns (depending on the level of Cogs they are facing). Once all of the Cogs are defeated, the Toons merge into their waiter suits. The C.E.O. comes in from the banquet room and tells the "Cogs" to get a move on. The Toons then move into the banquet room, and the second round begins.
Second round: Banquet
The second round consists of a large banquet room with tables in which Cogs are seated. The Cogs seated at these tables can either be Corporate Raiders or The Big Cheeses, depending on the Toons' Bossbot Cog Disguises (see section "Tier system"). Toons are given 300 seconds (five minutes) to feed all of the Cogs that are seated. To do this, Toons must pick up oil cans carried into the room by conveyor belts that are at the side. These oil cans are supplied by Good ol' Gil Giggles and will cause a Cog to explode after successfully drinking three oil cans. Toons pick the oil cans up by bumping into them whilst they are on the conveyor belt. Then, they are given to the Cog by bumping into any seated Cog that isn't currently eating. An oil can icon appears above a Cog's head to signify their current state of eating, along with a dark line indicating how close they are to finishing.
Once a Cog finishes eating an oil can, they will become hungry again. When a Cog is hungry, a pink stomach icon will appear above their head, with a dark line indicating how close they are to becoming enraged, as well as the Cog waving their hand in the air. If they are not fed in time, they will become enraged. When they are enraged, it will require another three oil cans to eliminate them, regardless of how many oil cans they were fed before. An angry Cog can be distinguished by the yellow lightning bolt above their forehead, as well as the Cog visibly pounding the table in frustration. When a Cog is successfully fed enough times, they will leap into the air and explode. Regardless of whether all Cogs were eliminated or not, this round will automatically end once five minutes have passed, starting the third round.
Third round: Cog battle
The length of the banquet battle depends on how many leftover Cogs there are from the feeding round. The round starts with both groups facing off against a single level 12 Version 2.0 Big Cheese. Once that Cog is defeated, two instances may occur; if all Cogs were destroyed in the feeding round, the fourth round will begin instantly. If there are still Cogs remaining from the feeding round, they will fly in, and Toons will have to battle them as well. This puts more emphasis on taking out Cogs as quickly as possible in the feeding round, as Toons will be short on gags by this point, making this round tougher to deal with without the aid of restock SOS cards and unites. Once all Cogs defeated, the fourth round will then begin.
Fourth round: C.E.O. battle
The fourth round involves a final battle against the C.E.O. himself, who has a total of 500 HP. The Toons battle against the C.E.O. with the use of seltzer bottles placed on the tables that Cogs were once seated at. If a Toon runs into a table, they will jump onto it, unless it is already occupied by another Toon, or is flattened due to the C.E.O. running over it. When on a table, holding control will build up the power of the seltzer bottle.
The seltzer bottle has three charges; low, medium, and high. The low charge is indicated by the bar at the bottom being a light blue. When hit by a low charge, the C.E.O. will only take 2 points of damage. When the bar is yellow, the charge is medium. A medium charge does 4 points of damage to the C.E.O. This charge is the ideal one to use, as its range is easy to get without overshooting, it doesn't take long to wait for medium charge and does moderate damage. The high charge is indicated by the bar turning red, and does 6 damage to the C.E.O.. While stronger, the window between this charge and overcharging is very small, so Toons only have a split-second to get this charge. If they overshoot a high charge, the seltzer bottle will overcharge and will not fire at all, meaning the Toon will have to recharge the seltzer bottle.
Toons can take damage from the C.E.O. if they bump into him. He can also damage Toons by running over them while they are on a table. If he does this, the Toon will be flattened, alongside the table, rendering it unusable for a short period of time. The Toon is unable to move until the C.E.O. moves off of them, at which point they will pop back up in a couple of seconds.
When the C.E.O. is defeated, he will spin around rapidly and confirm The Chairman's unhappiness of the situation as he demotes to a Flunky. Afterward, Toons perform a victory dance, receive skill points for their gags and credit for their ToonTasks if any, gain a promotion for their Bossbot Cog Disguise, and obtain a certain number of the C.E.O.'s pink slips given by Good ol' Gil Giggles.
The C.E.O. has a wide array of attacks that are heavily based on golf, all of which can be very deadly if underestimated:
- Swing: The C.E.O. swings his club at a nearby Toon and fires smaller golf balls in a stream towards the Toon. All of these attacks will aim towards where the Toon was when he threw the attack. In other words, if the C.E.O. turns to throws gears at a Toon who is standing by the door to the banquet room and the Toon moves away from the door before the C.E.O. throws the gears, he will still throw them at the door.
- Throw Gears: The C.E.O. will target a Toon and throw a number of gears at them. Toons can move backwards or run in any other direction away from the gears to avoid taking damage.
- Fore: The C.E.O. grabs a golf club and swipes with it, causing waves of giant, semi-transparent golf balls to be shot around him in a pattern, each targeting a Toon. Those who are using the seltzer bottles or the golf balls can avoid this attack by exiting out. Others can dodge by simply moving backward or running in any other direction away from the C.E.O.'s golf balls.
- Bump: The Toon loses a significant amount of laff points when bumping into the C.E.O.'s undercarriage.
Should the battle take too long, the C.E.O. can also initiate two "pinch" phases where his above attacks then become much stronger. Even after he is at his "Downsize" phase, his attacks will still continue to increase in damage every 30 minutes, which means it would be possible for him to defeat a maxed laff Toon with one attack.
- Reorganize: This phase is initiated 20 minutes after the round starts, and is indicated by the C.E.O. saying, "It's time to reorganize," which allows him to deal 19 damage and destroy one conveyor belt. This is visible through his golf club as well, which will turn a bright green color.
- Downsize: This phase is initiated 30 minutes after the round starts and is indicated by the C.E.O. saying, "Now let's downsize," from which point he will deal 30+ damage and destroy another conveyor belt. Toons will no longer be able to heal themselves beyond this point without the use of a Toon-up unite. This phase is visible through his golf club, which will change from bright green to red.
Like the Chief Justice, the C.E.O. boss battle works on a tier system. Depending on the average level of the Toons' Bossbot Cog Disguises that enter the battle, the number of pink slips awarded and the number and type of Cogs seated during the second round may vary. The average is worked out via the following formula:
- The level of Bossbot Cog Disguises going into the battle ÷ The number of Toons in the battle
For example; if eight level 1 Flunkies enter the battle, the outcome average will be level 1, since the data from this would be
- 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 ÷ 8
This equation results in 1 being the answer, which is the identifier for a level one Flunky-tier C.E.O.
The Cog value depends on the disguise, but this is not simply determined by level. Each disguise and level have their own unique value. The value can be easily determined via n + 1, where n is how many promotions a Toon has had totally. For example, a level 1 Flunky has a value of 1. If one were to go from level 1 Flunky to level three Yesman, they would need to require a total of 10 promotions. This amount is added on to the value of 1, resulting in a value of 11, which is that of a level three Yesman.
The C.E.O. battle has five tiers, all of which affect how the banquet room is laid out.
- Tier 1: This tier is chosen if the average Cog level is between and including a level one Flunky, and a level four Micromanager (a Cog Disguise value of 16). All Cogs in this tier are level 11 Corporate Raiders. There are eight tables, with four Cogs seated per table, resulting in a total of 32 Cogs. One pink slip is awarded in this tier.
- Tier 2: This tier is chosen if the average Cog level is between and including a level five Micromanager (a Cog Disguise value of 17) and a level eight Corporate Raider (a Cog Disguise value of 32). All Cogs in this tier are level 12 Big Cheeses. There are nine tables, with five Cogs seated per table, resulting in a total of 45 Cogs. Two pink slips are awarded in this tier.
- Tier 3: This tier is chosen if the average Cog level is between, and including, a level nine Corporate Raider (a Cog Disguise value of 33) and a level 19 Big Cheese (a Cog Disguise value of 47). All Cogs in this tier are level 11 Corporate Raiders. There are ten tables, with six Cogs seated per table, resulting in a total of 60 Cogs. Three pink slips are awarded in this tier.
- Tier 4: This tier is chosen if the average Cog level is between, and including The Big Cheese being level 20 (a Cog Disguise value of 48) or level 34 (a Cog Disguise value of 62). All Cogs in this tier are level 12 Big Cheeses. There are eight tables, with eight Cogs seated per table, resulting in a total of 64 Cogs. Four pink slips are awarded in this tier.
- Tier 5: This tier is chosen if the average Cog level is a level 35+ Big Cheese (a Cog Disguise value of 65+). All Cogs in this tier are level 12 Big Cheeses. There are thirteen tables, with five Cogs seated per table, resulting in a total of 65 Cogs. Five pink slips are awarded in this tier.
Name of origin
A "Chief Executive Officer" is the position of the most senior corporate officer (executive) or administrator in charge of managing a for-profit organization.
- The C.E.O. was the final boss to be released to Toontown Rewritten after members of the Toontown community managed to discover the secret coordinates leading to Bossbot Headquarters as part of the Minglermail ARG puzzle.
- The C.E.O. is currently the strongest Cog in all of Toontown.
- The C.E.O. is the only boss battle where:
- Toons do not meet the boss immediately after entering the area through the elevator.
- it has the most rounds out of all boss battles with a total of four, whereas the Vice President and the Chief Justice have three, and the Chief Financial Officer has two.
- the Cogs do not come out of the boss' undercarriage.
- the boss can be seen communicating with his Cog associates to discuss various business initiatives, which was introduced by an update released on May 16, 2017 that implemented new dialogue for the C.E.O. and simple phrases for the Bossbots after receiving their oil cans.
- The update, unfortunately, introduced a terrible bug, causing Toons to gain a distorted view of the game whenever they were run over by the C.E.O.. Toons who witnessed such a scenario entered The Grey, and would not be able to do anything interactive until they log out. This bug was fixed in another update released on June 12, 2017.
- According to the phase files, there is a file that shows a model of the C.E.O. with a golf cart. The golf cart was never released in Toontown Online.
- In Toontown Online, the golf balls were hardly ever effective towards the C.E.O., leading many members of the Toontown community to believe this was a bug. According to Aidan at OMG!Con 2016, Toons had to spend hours trying to slow the C.E.O. down. It was later discovered by a community member after analyzing Toontown Online's code that the C.E.O. had a breakneck recovery rate, resulting in the speed damage becoming ineffective and therefore rendering the golf balls useless.
- The cutscenes of the entire C.E.O. battle were tweaked with revisions being made to all of Good ol' Gil Giggles's speeches and two of the C.E.O.'s speeches, and a brand new animation where the C.E.O. spins around after being defeated.
- The C.E.O appears to be rather intelligent, as he will shut off the conveyor belts that Toons use to grab snacks for laff points if the final battle continues for a long period of time.
- Due to Version 2.0 Cogs exploding into Skelecogs when their outer shell is destroyed, this is the only place where Downsizer Skelecogs can be found outside of a Mega-Invasion.
- Because the elevator leading to the C.E.O. boss battle is notably small, some Toons would always clip through the walls in groups of eight.
- The C.E.O. is one of the few Cogs with hats. The others are Bean Counter, Ambulance Chaser, Downsizer, and muscular Skelecogs.
