Disposable Hero was a lightweight robot built by Phil Putman and LungFish Technologies for the first season of BattleBots. It was a simple design armed with two front forks and two circular saws. It lost its first fight, but it appeared on television, because of its complete and absolute destruction by Backlash.
Robot History Edit
Disposable Hero's only battle was against Backlash. Disposable Hero wasn't 100 percent complete for the battle, but Putman decided to be sporting and fight anyway. The match began with Disposable Hero backing away from the rapidly approaching Backlash. It managed to dodge Backlash's disc twice before being hit squarely in front, sending it flying. It continued moving, with its battery barely connected, and Backlash hit it again in the side, sending its motor flying across the arena. Backlash lined up another shot with the blade, this time ripping off the front forks. Backlash drove around the back of the beaten robot, and hit it once more, ripping out Disposable Hero's electronics. Disposable Hero was counted out as Backlash did a victory spin.
Amazingly, Disposable Hero was able to be repaired in time for one of the lightweight rumbles, though only half of the robot went into the BattleBox. It was missing both its forks and one of its saw blades (the remaining saw was mounted on top of the rear part of the robot). It survived to the end, but didn't advance to the final rumble.
