Kater Killer was a tracked box-wedge shaped robot which was entered by Team KaterKiller in Series 3 and 4 of Robot Wars. Kater Killer lost in the first round of both series it fought in, and also competed in the Sumo Basho competition, finishing in 6th place. Kater Killer's name is derived from 'caterpillar', after its caterpillar tracks, combined with a cat theme, used more strongly in the robot's successor, Kat 3.
Robot History Edit
In Round 1 of the Third Wars, Kater Killer was up against previous Semi-Finalists Napalm. Both robots looked rather sluggish as Napalm rammed Kater Killer. Napalm then managed to reverse into Kater Killer and pushed it around the arena and almost into the pit, but Kater Killer steered away just in time. The rest of the battle was mainly both robots trying to push each other around. In the end, the Judges decided that Napalm was the winner, eliminating Kater Killer from the competition.
The new version of Kater Killer was put up against the 8th seeds Gemini and newcomers Tornado in Round 1 of Series 4, where it was overshadowed by the former and not acknowledged for appearing in the previous series. Kater Killer was immediately slammed into the arena wall by Tornado, but escaped Sir Killalot. Tornado attacked again, while Gemini flipped Kater Killer over, and it could not use its lifting arm to self right. Shortly afterwards it was righted by Tornado, but the lifting arm was jammed and the robot was completely immobile. Tornado was later pitted, and the Kater Killer team began to celebrate, but by then it was too late for Kater Killer, as it had been immobile for too long.
Kater Killer later entered the Sumo Basho tournament. Kater Killer's tracks should have been an advantage, but it exposed its side, easily allowing Shunt to push one track off of the platform. It was fortunate for Kater Killer that Shunt took his time in adjusting his position before finally pushing it off. Overall, Kater Killer lasted 14.03 seconds, giving it a respectable 6th place.
