Black Widow was a large box shaped walkerbot that competed in Series 5 of Robot Wars. It was armed with spikes and a large overhead axe, swinging through 180 degrees. It featured light-up eyes, flammable fur, and a "web" made out of cotton wool intended to get tangled in spinners to stop them working. However, this had little effect in Black Widow's only battle, against Hypno-Disc.
Robot History Edit
Black Widow was very sluggish as the much faster Hypno-Disc got up to full spinning speed. The Black Widow wasn't able to fend off attacks as Hypno-Disc after choosing its angle attacked Black Widow, bouncing off. Hypno-Disc came in again, its disc ripping part of the 'spider's web' strewn across the sides of the Black Widow. Another attack ripped off one of Black Widow's legs, leaving it immobile. Sir Killalot hoisted Black Widow into the air before burning it over a flame vent. He then took Black Widow to the arena floor flipper, where, remarkably, Black Widow balanced on top of the flipper. A shove by Shunt positioned it correctly and it was thrown over.
Black Widow also competed in Techno Games 2002 in the Heavyweight Sprint but lost to Ulysses in round 1. It qualified for the semi finals regardless but lost to Scuttle B Squared. The Team would later return with Incy Wincy who competed in the assault course and was successful.
