This article is about the heavyweight Robot Wars competitor. For other robots named Excalibur, see Excalibur (Disambiguation)
Excalibur was a robot that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. In its only series appearance, it lost in the first round to Centurion after both robots locked together and Excalibur was deemed immobilised. The team that built Excalibur had previously competed in Series 2 with Disruptor.
The robot was named after the sword from Arthurian legend, Excalibur, wielded by King Arthur.
Robot History Edit
Excalibur competed in Heat J, facing Centurion in its first-round battle. It slowly approached Centurion as the latter charged into it, before using its axe to attack Centurion's right-hand side. Another axe blow punched through Centurion's left-hand armour - immediately above the latter's left wheel - but Excalibur was slow to move away, and eventually turned towards Sergeant Bash's CPZ. This allowed Centurion to ram Excalibur against the wall and axe it repeatedly, although without causing any damage to Excalibur's armour. Excalibur spun away, but briefly stopped moving as Centurion charged at it. It drove forwards as Centurion got itself stuck on the arena spikes, before dodging Centurion and stopping again close to the wall. Excalibur stood motionless as Centurion rammed it against the wall again, lifted it, and drove it towards the flame jet near Sir Killalot's CPZ. It fired its axe as Centurion tried to push it into Sir Killalot, briefly getting itself stuck on the arena floor, before trying to axe Sir Killalot as he pushed it back towards Sergeant Bash. After being turned round in the process, Excalibur proceeded to attack Sergeant Bash, before driving away from him and being pushed aside by Centurion. Excalibur axed Sergeant Bash's top armour as Centurion pushed it into him, leaving both robots stuck together before Excalibur retracted its axe just as Sir Killalot approached. Centurion axed Excalibur a few more times - at one point causing both of their axes to lock together - before Excalibur was declared immobilized, allowing Matilda, Sir Killalot and Sergeant Bash to attack it further. After sustaining damage to its armour from the House Robots, Excalibur was eliminated from the Third Wars as a result.
