Ricon was a superheavyweight robot which competed in the Las Vegas 1999 event. Ricon did very well in the event winning two battles and losing one, it would be succeeded by the less fortunate Odin.
Robot History[edit | edit source]
Ricon's first ever match was against Abbatoir, who almost forfeited before the match began. As Abbatoir started spinning it's horizontal blade, Ricon went straight at Abbatoir's blade and crashes into the spikestrip. Ricon was now moving around in circles and Abbatoir started moving forward. Abbatoir was moving backwards and Ricon started extending it's saw blades as it was still moving in circles. Ricon backed itself against the spikestrip and Abbatoir was moving forwards and backwards. As Ricon kept backing into the spikestrip, Abbatoir started smoking and was counted out. Ricon won by KO and advanced to the semifinals, where it was scheduled to fight Mechadon. However, Mechadon had technical issues because of its last fight against Ginsu, which damaged one of its drive motors, and was forced to forfeit. This win put Ricon to the superheavyweight finals, where it faced Minion.
Both robots drove at each other head on, with Minion pushing its way past Ricon. Minion's saws were not working, but they still managed to get inside Ricon, allowing Minion to easily push it around twice. After the second push, the mobility of both Minion and Ricon seemed to be heavily impaired. Fortunately for Minion, Ricon was on the spikes and unable to get off. Minion was still able to push Ricon into hazards. The time ran out shortly after and Minion won on a 7-2 judge's decision. This meant that Ricon was eliminated from the tournament.
Ricon wasn't finished, however, as it participated the superheavyweight rumble at the end of the tournament.
