Rohog was a purple box wedge shaped robot that resembled a beetle, hence the robot's name. It was armoured in fibreglass and its weapon was a retractable fork that could lift 60kg. However, its 24V Electric Motor meant that the robot was slow at 6mph, and it had poor reliability, the latter of which would cost it its only battle. It competed in Series 5 of Robot Wars. It lost its only battle against Sir Chromalot after breaking down, before being torn apart by Matilda and Sir Killalot.
Rohog had previously failed to qualify for Series 4. Its team would not enter Robot Wars after Series 5.
Notably, in order to match the robot's colour of purple, the team wore purple shirts and ties.
Both the Series 4 and 5 versions looked very similar, although due to Series 4 80kg weight limit, the older version was at least 12kg lighter.
Robot History Edit
The battle was over for Rohog very quickly with it pushing Sir Chromalot backwards, but then driving forwards onto the flame pit where it started to gush smoke. It then got stuck on an angle grinder and Refbot counted it out before Matilda came in with its flywheel and caused heavy damage to Rohog's rear armour. Sir Chromalot then attempted to flip Rohog out of the arena, but failed and Rohog was damaged even more by Matilda. Sir Killalot then picked Rohog up and placed it on the arena floor flipper. Rohog flew through the air and landed on its wheels. However Matilda then came in again and tore Rohog's shell almost completely off. Sir Killalot then placed Rohog on the floor flipper and again Rohog flew through the air before cease was eventually called.
