Cyrax was a roughly pyramid-shaped robot that competed in Series 6 of Robot Wars. It had a powerful axe and a flipper. It survived its first round battle, but was eliminated by the reigning champion, Razer in the next round. The team previously competed in Series 3 with Wild Willy, where it controversially lost in Round One after being pitted by Matilda.
Jonathan Pearce sometimes referred to the robot as "the purple pyramid", despite appearing to be painted blue, although the team's previous robot was purple.
Robot History Edit
Cyrax's first battle of the Sixth Wars saw it in a potential grudge match with Team Tetanus, whose previous robot Flip Flop Fly controversially beat the team's previous robot Wild Willy. In spite of this, Cyrax started strongly, assisting Tetanus 2 in disposing of Weld-Dor 3 before it was pitted. However, it survived the judges' decision against Ruf Ruf Dougal, whose fur had caught fire earlier on and didn't show aggression. Cyrax had the misfortune to be placed against reigning champions Razer for the second round match. Razer started by trying to crumple the front flipper of Cyrax before managing to drive it into the jaws of Growler, who pushed Cyrax the length of the arena before letting go. Razer then managed to grab hold of a corner of Cyrax's pyramid shell and hold it in place while Mr. Psycho hit the robot twice with his hammer which knocked off part of the lense cap of the blinking top light. Cyrax responded by flipping Razer over but Razer managed to self-right and put one last hole in Cyrax before cease was called. The judges eliminated Cyrax, based on the large amount of damage sustained as well as poor driving and lack of aggression.
