REALI-T (also spelt with variations on capitals, such as Reali-t and Reali-T) was a competitor robot in Series 1 of Robot Wars. It was a large silver domed robot, shaped like a UFO, with a small Alien pilot in a cutout on the front of the robot and frequent flashing lights and siren. It was armed with hardened steel ramming spikes as its weapon. It was defeated by the much heavier Bodyhammer in its Heat Final, after it was pushed onto the side rails.
Its name was a pun on the word reality. It was also an acronym which stood for "Reverse-Engineered Alien Technology" according to the team.
Robot History Edit
REALI-T started slowly in the Gauntlet, taking the centre route and slowly going over both ramps and dodging the drills and pendulum, eventually completing the Gauntlet. In the Trial, REALI-T managed to slowly snake its way through the Labyrinth to finish second (But took damage from Matilda in the process, breaking two of their six drive motors) and qualified for the Arena.
REALI-T met Full Metal Anorak in the arena and slowly chased after Full Metal Anorak while trying to avoid their tyre blade. Eventually, REALI-T managed to ram Full Metal Anorak and cause some minor damage before bumping it onto the grille, leaving the wedge-shaped machine stranded.
Before the Heat Final, one of REALI-T's wheels snapped off and so the team had to reduce their robot to just four wheels before entering the Arena. In the battle itself, REALI-T and Bodyhammer pushed each other around a bit before Bodyhammer got partially wedged on the grill and was eventually pushed onto the grill by REALI-T, who lost another wheel. Shunt came in and pushed Bodyhammer off the grill, and REALI-T was pushed onto the side rails, lifting its remaining wheels off the ground and leaving it unable to move, eliminating it from the competition.
