General Carnage was the name given to a competitor robot in Series 3 and 5 of Robot Wars. It was entered by Team Carnage, who had previously competed in Series 2 with Prometheus. Whilst unable to reach the heat final in either appearance, General Carnage 2's greatest claim to fame was being the fifth robot to throw another robot out of the arena.

Robot History Edit

Series 3Edit

General carnage

In the Third Wars, General Carnage was drawn up against newcomers Robocow in the first round of Heat B. It began by pushing Robocow, before slipping its pincers underneath and raising Robocow off the ground. It pushed it into Sergeant Bash, and then into the side wall, into an angle grinder. Robocow's spike was caught in the pincer of General Carnage, before being pushed into House Robots. Sir Killalot flipped Robocow, securing General Carnage's place in the next round of the heat.

However, General Carnage had to face the previous Semi-Finalists Behemoth in the second round. It took just 16 seconds of fighting for Behemoth to overturn General Carnage in this battle, General Carnage couldn't self-right because it had no srimech, and was deemed immobilised, eliminating it from the competition. The small rear axes of Behemoth then struck at the defeated machine. After getting sliced by Dead Metal, General Carnage was righted and quickly attempted to pit house robot Sergeant Bash, but was attacked by Shunt, making a deep hole on the shell, and ultimately pitted by Sir Killalot himself.

Series 5Edit

In the first round of the Fifth Wars, a new and improved General Carnage machine was placed up against newcomers Guzunderbot. In the battle, General Carnage 2 lifted Gunzunderbot up, then flipped it over. Guzunderbot tried to self-right, but its flipper was not large or powerful enough. General Carnage moved in and hurled the red machine out of the arena, securing a place in the next round.

General Carnage 2 was then placed up against the number 5 seeds Stinger in the second round. In this battle, General Carnage 2 fought valiantly against Stinger, flipping the axlebot several times. However, Stinger's mace landed several powerful blows, and General Carnage slowed down and stopped. Stinger had used its mace weapon effectively to knock loose the power link of General Carnage 2. The gold machine took punishment from Stinger, Shunt and Killalot, just as it had last time, and was flipped on its side by the arena floor flipper; eliminated at the heat semi-final stage once more.
