Herbinator was a robot that singularly competed in Series 7 of Robot Wars. It competed in Heat D of the main competition, but was eliminated fairly swiftly in the first round by Lightning. The team had previously attempted to enter the Sixth Wars, but failed to qualify.
Its name was a portmanteau of Herbie and the Terminator, and as suggested by the name, its paintjob was based on Herbie, the Love Bug.
Robot History Edit
Herbinator went up against the 7th seeds 13 Black, veterans The Alien and former Tag Team competitors Lightning, who was fighting alone for the first time, in its first round battle of the Seventh Wars. In the first few seconds of its eliminator, Herbinator slowly dodged the approaching Lightning as they charged towards 13 Black, but Herbinator was then was flipped onto its side by Lightning up against the arena side wall. Due to it being propped against the arena wall, Herbinator's side roll bars couldn't self-right it and could not use the flipper to jerk it from the sideways position. Refbot then counted out Herbinator, eliminating it from the competition. After being fiercely axed, Herbinator was later self-righted by Shunt, and Herbinator then went to attack the recently immobilised The Alien, but it was far too late.
