Not to be confused with Battlebots competitor The Crusher

Crusher was a competitor robot that fought in Series 3 of Robot Wars. It was eliminated in the first round despite penetrating the armour of former champion Beast of Bodmin, after its tracks slipped off.

Team Wharthog had previously entered in Series 1 and the Series 2 Middleweight Championship with Wharthog, and also failed to qualify for Series 6 and 7 with Cruncher.

Robot History Edit

Crusher broke down just before its first round battle, and was repaired minutes before it was due to enter the arena. Nevertheless, it faced Beast of Bodmin, the successor to Series 1 champion Roadblock, and despite being sluggish started well by penetrating Beast of Bodmin's shell with its crusher, its opponent 'wincing' as it sustained damaged. Beast of Bodmin escaped, shoving Crusher side-on before Crusher pierced through Beast of Bodmin's front end once again. Crusher was pushed sideways by Beast of Bodmin, who was unable to use its cutting saw to great effect, before having its left-hand track dislodged by Beast of Bodmin's wedge. It was pushed into the wall by Beast of Bodmin, and was attacked by the House Robots after its crusher got wedged between the railings. Dead Metal cut into Crusher's exoskeleton as the battle ended, and Crusher was eliminated.
