Not to be confused with The Executioner from the UK Robot Wars
Executioner was a lightweight competitor that competed in the Long Beach 1999 event of BattleBots. It was a black rectangular robot armed with a chainsaw on a 360-degree turret and a front scoop. It performed well in its only appearance, placing third in the competition. It had no relation to the UK Competitor of the same name that competed on Battlebots as The Piecemaker.
Executioner was most notable for damaging Mouser Catbot 2001 so severely that a "cybernetic implant" had to be patched over the damage, transforming it into Mouser Mecha-Catbot for the three subsequent events.
