Ghetto-bot was a competitor robot from Michigan, USA, that fought in the War of Independence, one of the Christmas specials shown as part of Robot Wars: The Fourth Wars. Initially built for high school competitions, it was one of four robots to represent the United States during the latter. However, it lost its only televised battle to Mortis.
Shortly before filming for the War of Independence began, the team entered a competition called Robot Rivals, where they had to build and design robots for specific tasks. They placed 43rd of the 261 entrants.
Ghetto-bot was also one of eight American robots present for filming of the unaired MTV Pilot. Following changes to the pilot's format after the withdrawal of one of the participating teams, it was ultimately not selected to take part.
Robot History Edit
Representing the USA, Ghetto-bot fought exclusively in the War of Independence. Its first-round battle saw it face UK Robot Wars veteran - and former series Semi-Finalist - Mortis. Mortis drove over Ghetto-bot's front wedge as both robots came together in the opening seconds, before Ghetto-bot attempted to push it back. As Ghetto-bot sustained multiple axe blows from Mortis - leaving several dents in its bodyshell in the process - it slowly pushed Mortis across the arena, but was then pushed sideways by Mortis towards the Flame Pit. Ghetto-bot struggled to drive away as Mortis pushed it completely over, where it caught fire before being pushed into and axed by Shunt. Refbot extinguished Ghetto-bot's flames as Mortis, Dead Metal and Shunt continued to inflict damage to its body. Mortis proceeded to attack Sir Killalot as Shunt pushed Ghetto-bot over the Flame Pit once again just before 'cease' was called, eliminating the American representative from the War of Independence.
