Darren Scott, from Croft Court in east Belfast, allegedly phoned 999 on Wednesday to issue the threat, following a drinking spree.
The unemployed father-of-four is also charged with improper use of a public electronic communications network.
Newtownards Magistrates Court heard that Scott made two calls to emergency services, allegedly threatening Mr Robinson in the first.
In the second the 34-year-old was said to have admitted responsibility for the attempted murder of a police officer in east Belfast on 10 December.
PSNI Detective Constable Owen Nevin said there was no evidence to back this up.
However DC Nevin said there was evidence of clear intent in the call about the DUP leader.
Scott was arrested at home after spelling out his full name and address for the 999 call handlers - and when police arrived he had already packed his bags and was ready for arrest.
He told police he wanted to be jailed.
DC Nevin said: "He wanted to go to prison were the words he used."
Scott spoke only to confirm his name and said he understood the charges against him.
Heavily tattooed and wearing a white tracksuit, he made no reply when the charges were put to him on Thursday morning.
He was remanded in custody to appear before a Belfast court via video link on 8 January.
