Busto resembles a prison/jail. He has two flat, buck teeth on his upper lip and three sharp teeth on his bottom lip. His arms are blue with grey wrists. He has short grey legs and his feet are black with three sharp toes. He has a red, white, and blue siren at the top of his head. Behind himself is a cage that he uses to trap bad guys.
Since his body is a jail cell, his body is hollow, allowing him to store certain entities in it, such as criminals.
Little is known about Busto's past.
The Sergeant of the MCPD called Busto and his fellow officers while they were on a snack break. He told them to head to the Mixopolis Zoo and handle the Mixeloptor outbreak. When they arrived, they decided to Max to fight the monsters. However, that failed, and the three were de-mixed, thrown and locked in a cage. ("Every Knight Has Its Day")
One day, Busto and his brothers got a noise report from the Medivals over the Mixies not playing their music loud enough. After threatening the Mixies with arrest, they started to play louder, and all the tribes started to dance, closing the case. (“Mixopolis Music Mix-Up!”)
One day in Mixopolis, Busto was with his brothers and the Medivals. He accidentally got hit by his own crowbar, and then collided with Paladum, fusing the two together and letting them get the lost Cookironi. (“Wild Cookeroni Chase in Downtown Mixopolis!”)
One day, Busto and his brothers tracked down a missing container of cookies only to find a Nixel eating away at the cookies inside. ("Police Catch Cookie Thief")
Busto arrested and jailed Kuffs' handcuffs, later returning them to him. ("Busto Busts Runaway Cuffs")
Busto and his brothers almost caught the Pyrratz as they fled the scene of a failed bank robbery. ("Pirate Trio Transform Into A Pirate Ship")
- "Yes!" - Busto, Every Knight Has Its Day
The set includes a Nixel with a crowbar and frustrated expression. The Nixel can be put inside of Busto.
