Crash Test Dummy was a robot that competed in Season 3.0 and Season 5.0 of BattleBots. It was a black robot with literally a crash test dummy, dressed up in a hard hat and crash test logos. Its only weapon was to be airbags that would inflate to deflect the opponent and self-right Crash Test Dummy, but at the time they were considered entanglement devices and had to be removed, leaving the robot with few defenses except to spin or use its lower half or the spikes to its advantage. Crash Test Dummy, although reaching the televised rounds in its debut season, didn't do very well, winning only once in its 3 total fights. It was built by Robert Doerr for the team Robot Workshop.

Crash Test Dummy also had a middleweight counterpart built for Season 5.0 named Crash Test Junior.

Robot History Edit

Season 3.0Edit

Crash Test Dummy's first ever match was against Collateral Damage. Crash Test Dummy won on a 26-19 judge's decision and advanced to the TV rounds, where it faced BattleRat.

In the beginning of the match, Crash Test Dummy starts spinning and BattleRat flips it in less than 15 seconds. Crash Test Dummy goes falling face first onto one of the hellraisers and it eventually got back on it's feet after getting hit by the hellraisers multiple times. BattleRat's lifting arm is now stuck in the upright position, as its only strategy is to capture Crash Test Dummy and push it to the arena hazards. BattleRat pushes Crash Test Dummy to the killsaws and then the arena wall. BattleRat then pushes Crash Test Dummy on the pulverizer and it gets hit several times, with one hit removed Crash Test Dummy's plastic hat. BattleRat raised it's lifting arm backwards and Crash Test Dummy moves around the arena before the time ran out. BattleRat won on a 33-12 judge's decision and Crash Test Dummy was eliminated from the tournament.

Season 5.0Edit

Crash Test Dummy's only match in Season 5.0 was against Ripkin. Ripkin won on a 35-10 judge's decision and Crash Test Dummy was eliminated from the tournament again.
