NST
NST
(Short for Nasty Spinny Thing) was a Featherweight robot built by Sam Smith. It was a silver, two-wheeled, invertible, triangular shaped robot armed with an insanely powerful spinning bar. This however would prove to be just as dangerous to itself, as it would to its opponents as NST threw itself out the arena after hitting an opponent on numerous occasions.

Despite this the robot won the UK Featherweight Championships in 2012, and placed fourth the following year, as well as winning the Annihilator in 2015. Sam Smith the builder of NST, also was part of the team for Robot Wars competitors Carbide, and Tiberius, as well as Battlebots entry Cobalt. NST remains his most successful robot to date.

Robot HistoryEdit

UK Featherweight Championships 2010Edit

NST's first melee was against Seraphim, and Drumroll 2. This match started with NST spinning up, and impacting the exposed wheels of Seraphim. This launched NST into the arena side wall, and it bounced back onto the arena floor. NST then spun back up, and ripped a tire off of Seraphim, however in the process of doing so it threw itself out of the arena, Drumroll 2 then launched Seraphim out the arena, ending the match.

It then faced LS2, and Kaiser in its next melee. This match began with NST, and LS2 spinning up to speed, LS2 then immediately attacked the side of Kaiser, ripping pieces off, and immobilizing it completely. NST then delivered a hit to the side of LS2, immobilizing its right side drive, before eventually delivering a final blow that caused LS2 to stop moving altogether.

This put NST through to round 2 where it faced Alpha, and Tiny Toon in its next melee. This match started with NST spinning up, and delivering several blows to its opponents. However whilst attacking Tiny Toon, NST once again threw itself out the arena, Tiny Toon eventually pitted Alpha, and was eliminated from the competition alongside Alpha.

NST wasn't done however, as it then participated in a few whiteboard matches, the first of these was against Alpha, Blitz Quattro, and LS4. This match started with LS4, and NST spinning up to speed, LS4 then attacked Blitz Quattro, immobilizing it on the pits edge, but also flipping itself in the process. NST then attacked Alpha, and flung itself out the arena again, Alpha then pressed the pit release, lowering Blitz Quattro into it ending the match.

The next Whiteboard was against LS4, and Alpha. This match began with NST, and LS4 spinning up to speed, LS4 then attacked Alpha, immobilizing it, and nearly throwing itself out the arena in the process, as well as disabling its spinning shell. NST then attacked the immobile Alpha, before attacking LS4, ripping a large gash in its Titanium spinning shell, and disabling one half of its drive. It then delivered a second blow to LS4 immobilizing it completely, however the match continued, and NST just continued attacking the immobile robots for the remaining 2 minutes until cease was called.

It then faced Boner, Carcinus, Whirlpool, and Ironside. It lost after becoming immobilized, and next fought another Whiteboard against Carcinus, Whirlpool, Surprize, DB5, Weed, and Toonimator. This match began with NST spinning up, and immediately ripping apart the rear of Toonimator, immobilizing it. DB5 then rammed NST, nearly causing it to throw itself out the arena again.

Weed then got a flip in on DB5 while Whirlpool shoved the immobile Toonimator into the wall, seemingly immobilizing it as well. Carcinus then pressed the pit release, and Weed was flipped by DB5, and self righted into the spinning bar of NST. NST then went weapon to weapon with Surprize, ripping its blade out, and knocking the blade into the pit.

NST then attacked the rear of Surprize, nearly knocking itself into the pit, however while attempting to shove it in Whirlpool freed it, and instead shoved it into the wall. DB5 then drove up onto Weed's flipper, which fired, and sent it flying, NST then spun back up, and delivered a hit to Whirlpool before Carcinus shoved it into the wall. NST then spun up once more, and delivered a hit to DB5, immobilizing it, and impacting Whirlpool whilst recoiling from the hit, knocking Whirlpool into the pit.

However it then attacked Carcinus, and sent itself flying, landing between the wall, and the edge of the open pit. This immobilized NST, leaving Carcinus the only one capable of showing full mobility. Weed then used its flipper, to manouver its way over to Surprize, and flipped it out the arena. Cease was then called, leaving Carcinus as the winner.

It then participated in the Annihilator against Whirlwind, DB5, Captain Scarlet, Drumroll 2, and Seraphim. This fight started with NST immediately ripping a wheel off of Captain Scarlet, however DB5 then came in, and stopped the spinner of NST. NST then spun back up, and DB5 rammed it again, this time however it failed to stop the deadly spinner, which immobilized it against the side wall before ripping another wheel off of Captain Scarlet. DB5 was then counted out, and eliminated from the Annihilator.

Round 2 of the Annihilator started with NST spinning up, and delivering a few blows to Seraphim. Drumroll then came in, and NST delivered a blow to it as well, flipping it on its back. NST then spun back up, and delivered another blow to Drumroll. However in the process of doing so it ricocheted into the pit, and was eliminated from the Annihilator.

UK Featherweight Championships 2011 Edit

NST's first match was against Carcinus, and Drumroll 2. However Carcinus did not show up, leaving NST, and Drumroll 2 to battle each other. This fight started with Drumroll 2 trying to get around to the side of NST, however NST delivered a hit to Drumroll 2, flipping it.

NST then delivered another blow, this time sending both robots flying, and completely disabling the drum of Drumroll 2. Drumroll 2 then pressed the pit release, however NST then slammed into the side of Drumroll 2, ripping a wheel-guard off, and ripping the drum clean out of its weapon bracket, and completely immobilizing Drumroll 2 which promptly threw in the towel, securing NST 3 points.

NST then fought Beauty 4, and 4+4 Toon. This match started with NST spinning up, and delivering a massive hit to 4+4 Toon, taking out one half of its drive. NST then spun up again, and attacked Beauty 4, however while doing so it threw itself out the arena. Beauty 4 eventually won this melee, and for placing last in the melee NST was awarded 1 point.

For its third 1st round melee, NST's next opponents were Cyberon, and Kaizer. This match started with NST spinning up, Cyberon then rammed Kaizer once, which stopped working, and was counted out. At this point NST's weapon stopped working, and Cyberon shoved it in the pit. This second place finish in the melee got NST 2 points bringing its total up to 6 points. Unfortunately this was not eneough to progress to Round 2, and NST was once again eliminated from the competition in Round 1.

NST wasn't done however as it competed in the Annihilator against Buzzbar, Tiny Toon, Seraphim, 540, and Bitza. This match started with NST getting up to speed, and delivering a blow to the side of 540, which had just hit the pit release. NST then hit 540 again, as Tiny Toon shoved Bitza into the pit, eliminating Bitza from the annihilator.

Round 2 of the annihilator started with 540 hitting the pit release. However while attempting to shove Buzzbar in the pit, 540 drove in itself, eliminating it from the annihilator. In round 3 of the annihilator Buzzbar went out, putting NST through to Round 4 of the annihilator.

This round began with NST spinning up to speed, and delivering hits to Tiny Toon, and Seraphim. However, Tiny Toon then hit the pit release, and NST attacked it. This caused NST to bounce off the wedge of Tiny toon, and into the descending pit, eliminating it from the Annihilator.

NST still wasn't done, as it next competed in two whiteboard battles, the first of which saw it facing Aftershock, Little Hitter, Tron, Ironside, BonX, and Tiny Toon. In this battle it was one of only two robots still mobile at the end, but ultimately lost to Tiny Toon. It then faced Beauty 4, Cyberon, Stagefright, Ironside, Heatwave, Bruiser, and Tron. It started off quite well, taking out both Stagefright, and Cyberon, however it eventually stopped moving near the side wall, and lost overall to Bruiser.

UK Featherweight Championships 2012 Edit

NST's first match in the 2012 UK Featherweight Championships was against Cyberon, and 540. This match began with NST spinning up to speed, Cyberon then rammed it, sending it flying. NST Recovered however, and delivered a blow to 540, immobilizing it on one side, before delivering a large hit to Cyberon, flinging both robot against the wall.

NST then repeated this attack, sending Cyberon into the wall once more before attacking 540. This caused NST to nearly throw itself out the arena, however it recovered, and delivered another hit to 540. 540 then rammed NST, causing it to gyrodance briefly, but it recovered, while this was happening Cyberon hit the pit release. NST then delivered a blow to 540, immobilizing it by the side wall, and nearly flinging itself into the pit.

Despite nearly going into the pit, NST quickly recovered and delivered a hit to Cyberon that knocked the later on top of the now immobilized 540, high centering it. Cyberon was then counted out, giving NST 3 points for its first melee. NST then faced Inertia XL, and Tormentia.

This match started with NST spinning up, and delivering two large hits, immobilizing Inertia XL immediately. NST then focused its attention on Tormentia, ripping the front-right side away, and showering parts across the arena floor. Tormentia then tapped out, giving NST another three points, and yet another knockout.

NST's final first round melee was against Satanix, and Conker. This match started with NST delivering a flurry of hits to the side of Satanix, eventually immobilizing it on one side. NST then ripped a rear panel off of Conker, before ripping out the rear-left wheel. Conker then went weapon to weapon with NST, delivering a hit that sent both robots flying.

NST then ripped a side panel off of Conker, sending it crashing against the wall. It followed this up by ripping off another wheel, this caused Conker to start moving in circles, and it tapped out. This meant that NST was given another three points, bringing the total to nine points, more than enough for it to progress to round 2.

In round 2 NST faced RipOff. This match started with NST spinning up to speed, RipOff then rushed it, this however backfired as NST delivered a massive hit that immobilized RipOff putting NST through to Round 3 where it faced Little Hitter. This match started with Little Hitter charging NST as it got up to speed, successfully stopping the weapon, and taking it to the wall.

NST then spun back up, and delivered a blow to Little Hitter, ripping a gouge in the right side before delivering a second hit that flipped it. NST then attacked the rear of Little Hitter, ripping the rear armor panel apart, and cleaving the axe head clean off. Little Hitter then tapped out, giving NST the win by knockout, putting it through to the Semi-Finals where it faced Cobalt.

This match began with NST spinning up to speed, and delivering a hit to Cobalt, this immobilized one half of its drive, and left it spinning in circles. NST then spun back up, and delivered another blow to Cobalt, nearly hurling itself out the arena. Unable to show full movement Cobalt was then counted out, putting NST into the grand final where it faced reigning UK Featherweight champion Explosion.

This match started with NST spinning up to full speed, and delivering a hit to the front of Explosion, flipping it. Explosion then self-righted into the spinning blade of NST, which prevented it from rigting itself. Explosion eventually self-righted, and charged NST which ripped a gash in Explosion, NST then attacked Explosion again, flipping it once more.

Explosion once again righted itself, but NST attacked again, ripping a large chunk of armor off of Explosion. Following this, Explosion pressed the pit release in a desperate attempt to pit NST, however NST attacked once more seemingly disabling half of Explosions drive. It followed this up with another hit, not only flipping Explosion, but ripping even more armor apart.

NST then delivered a hit that ripped the front right armor paneling on the front of Explosion off. However in the process of doing so NST nearly knocked itself out the arena. But it quickly recovered, delivering two more blows to Explosion, the first ripping away more armor, and the second immobilizing Explosion completely. Explosion then tapped out, giving NST its first ever championship.

UK Featherweight Championships 2013 Edit

NST's first fight as the reigning champion was against Skyfall, and Cyberon. It won this match by KO securing three points, and next fought Ricochet, and Tormentia 2. This fight began with NST attacking Tormentia 2, it then broke away, and deliverd a hit to Ricochet. Tormentia 2 then hit the pit release button, and NST delivered another hit to Ricochet, and bounced into the pit. This gave NST 1 point for the last place finish, and it next faced Tillys Revenge, and RipOff.

This match began with NST delivering a few minor hits to RipOff before delivering one massive hit that immobilized it completely. NST then focused on Tillys Revenge which had just started moving, delivering a blow to it that took out one side of Tillys drive, and nearly caused NST to launch itself out the arena. NST then spun back up, and delivered another massive hit, at which point Tillys revenge stopped moving completely, and tapped out giving NST three points for a total of seven.

This was enough for NST to move on to round 2 where it faced the Portugese rambot, Rabid. This match began with Rabid pressing the pit release, NST then delivered five massive blows, with the fifth one knocking Rabid into the pit. This put NST through to Round 3 where it faced Little Hitter 3. This match began with Little Hitter 3 using its angled titanium shell to tank hits from NST.

However NST got around to the rear of Little Hitter 3, and ripped the axe head off, and peeled back some armor. Little Hitter 3 then nearly drove itself into the pit, but it recovered, and continued using its body shape to deflect NST, nearly sending it out the arena. NST then delivered a hit that nearly sent Little Hitter spinning into the pit, it recovered but NST went on the attack, delivering another similar attack, this time spinning it into the pit.

This put NST in the Quarter-Finals where it faced Beauty 7. It this fight NST spun up, and delivered a flurry of massive hits to Beauty 7, which then started smoking. Beauty 7 then hit the pit release, but NST delivered one final hit, at which point Beauty 7 stopped working, and was counted out.

This put NST through to the Semi-Finals once again where it faced Explosion. This match started pretty much the same as the last time the two met. With NST dominating, and ripping parts off of Explosion, however Explosion pressed the pit release button, and got behind NST. It then shoved NST into the pit, eliminating the reigning champions hopes of a back to back title win.

NST then faced 720 in the Third Place Play-Offs. This match was short, with NST, and 720 spinning up to speed, 720 then went weapon to weapon with NST, and tossed it out the arena. This meant that NST had placed fourth, this would be the last Semi-Final that NST would reach. NST wasn't done yet however as it participated in a whiteboard match where it teamed up with Portugese robot, Galactus to fight Tiny Toon. It won this match by knockout after tagging Galactus which immobilized Tiny Toon.

UK Featherweight Championships 2014 Edit

NST's first match was against Drumroll 2, and Ricochet. This match was pretty much the same as the last time NST, and Ricochet clashed, with the other robot hitting the pit release, and NST rebounding off of Ricochet, into the pit. This last place finish gave NST a measly 1 point, and it next faced Hardwired, and Carcinus.

This match started with NST spinning up, and delivering a hit to Hardwired, sending it spinning into the pit release. NST then attacked Hardwired again, nearly getting its bar spinner stuck in the arena rails in the process, it then attacked Carcinus, sending it spinning into the arena walls, and bending its crushing jaws upwards. NST then delivered another blow to Hardwired, which stopped moving, before finishing offf Carcinus for the three points.

It then faced Cyberon, and Flow. It lost this match early on after being flipped on its side by Flow, and placed last, earning it a measly one point. NST then faced Endeavor, and Kaizer. This match started with NST spinning up to full speed, and delivering hits to both Endeavor, and Kaizer. NST then came in for another attack, ripping chunks off of Kaizer, however this attack also nearly caused NST to launch itself out the arena.

NST Recovered, and ripped another chunk off of Kaizer, launching itself again in the process. NST then spun back up, and ripped even more parts off of Kaizer, as well as ripped off the pit release button, flinging it out the arena. NST then ripped some top armor off of Kaizer, before delivering a blow to Endeavor that knocked it onto the edge of the pit. NST then shoved it in, shortly after this Kaizer was counted out, netting NST three points for a total of eight.

This wasn't enough to get it into the next round, and it had to fight in the loser's melee where it faced TS3, Ricochet, Defector, Tiny Toon, and GiANTo. NST qualified after TS3 tossed Tiny Toon out the arena, putting it through to round 2 where it faced DB10. This match started with DB10 hitting the pit release, however NST then hit it on the rear, immobilizing DB10 which tapped out.

This put NST through to Round 3 where it faced Beauty 2. This match started with NST spinning up, and attacking Beauty 2, however the impact caused NST to throw itself out the arena with the power of its spinner. This put NST in the Round 3 Loser's Melee where it faced Little Hitter 3, and TS3. Once again NST threw itself out the arena, eliminating it from the competition.

FRA World Featherweight Championships 2015 Edit

NST did not compete in the main competition as builder Sam Smith entered another robot, Shard instead. However NST did compete in the annihilator where it faced Decimator, Flow, Hatchet, Defector, and Cannon Fodder. The first round of the annihilator started with Decimator spinning up, Flow then tried to flip it out but only flipped itself. Flow righted itself, but Decimator attacked it again, flipping it, and disabling its flipper. Flow was then counted out, and eliminated while NST caused severe damage to Hatchet.

Round 2 of the annihilator began with Decimator having withdrawn due to mechanical issues, and Hatchet having withdrawn due to damage taken from NST. The match began with NST delivering minor hits to Cannon Fodder, however Defector then flipped Cannon Fodder once, before flipping it out the arena. This meant NST progressed to the annihilator final without having done much.

The Annihilator final started with NST spinning up, and delivering multiple hits to Defector. It then delivered a massive hit that sent NST flying, and ripped a chunk of armor away from Defector. NST then took another shot at defector, disabling one half of its drive, it followed this up by delivering yet another hit that completely ripped open the front of Defector, immobilizing it. Defector tapped out following this hit, this meant that NST became the 2015 Annihilator Champion.

FRA World Featherweight Championships 2016 Edit

Like the previous year NST did not compete in the main competition, instead it competed in the Annihilator where it faced Mr Mangle, 722, Clank, No Toy, and Devils Coach Horse. The first round of the annihilator started with NST spinning up, and immediately being attacked by Devils Coach Horse. NST then spun back up, and delivered a large hit to Mr Mangle, sending it flying, and immobilizing it. 

Mr Mangle was then removed from the arena, and round 2 of the annihilator started. In this round started with 722 spinning up, and immediately flipping Devils Coach Horse. Clank then flipped it as well, NST then delivered a blow to the rear of both Devils Coach Horse, and No Toy. This hit immobilized one half of No Toy's drive, however NST then briefly stopped moving, and was almost counted out. However it started moving again, and 722 came in, and flipped No Toy which was counted out after taking damage from it, and NST.

Round 3 of the Annihilator started with 722 spinning up to speed, and attacking the side of Clank before attacking NST, sending it into the wall. NST recovered, and delivered a hit to the side of 722 before ripping a side panel off of Clank. However Clank then pressed the pit release, and whilst attacking Devil's Coach Horse, NST bounced off of it, and into the pit, eliminating it from the Annihilator.

NST wasn't done yet however as it competed in a whiteboard match against Disturbance, Fissure, and Stiff Breeze. It lost this match after flipping itself out of the arena, marking the end of NST's last appearance to date.

Trivia Edit

  • Despite having 41 fights, not a single one of them went to a judges decision (Whiteboard matches do not count). This means that NST is the robot with perhaps the highest number of fights, or one of the highest number of fights to achieve this feat.
