Mayhem was a black, invertible box shaped robot with a front-mounted, 16kg, 2000RPM spinning disc. It exclusively competed in the Seventh Series of Robot Wars, had strong armour on the top but the team had no previous Robot Wars experience to reflect on, a true handicap coming up against three veterans of Robot Wars in the first round of the heat.
It lost its only battle after fellow spinner Supernova ripped off both of its exposed tyres. It was deliberately designed with a high ground clearance and exposed rear wheels so the robot would be made difficult to get hold of but this proved to be its undoing.
Robot History Edit
Mayhem participated in Heat I of the Seventh Wars. In the first round, Mayhem was placed up against the number 16 seeds Storm 2, Team Reactor's Rhino and the Sri Lankan representatives Supernova, a robot of a very similar design to Mayhem. In the battle, Mayhem spun around in circles at the beginning of the melee, as it tried to attack Rhino, but Supernova then hit one of its exposed tyres, knocking it clean off. Supernova attacked again with its disc and ripped the other tyre from Mayhem. Mayhem was left with no traction on the arena floor and was counted out by Refbot. Sir Killalot came in and placed Mayhem onto the arena floor flipper. After being flipped, Matilda whacked Mayhem with her flywheel into the arena side wall, buckling one of the wheels and damaging its armour.
After Supernova was immobilised and counted out, cease was called and Mayhem was eliminated from the competition along with Team Trinity's machine.
