Rott-Bott was a lightweight robot which competed at the Long Beach 1999 event and Season 1.0 of BattleBots. It was an invertible robot armed with two spinning saw blades. It was originally made of wood at Long Beach and then was made of steel during Season 1.0. Also, it was renamed Rott-Bott 2000 in Season 1.0. Despite these changes, it never won a match, but it did win a consolation rumble in Season 1.0.
It was built by Brian Scearce, who also built the middleweight competitor Halo.
Robot History Edit
Long Beach 1999Edit
Rott-Bott's first match in Long Beach was against Team Vicious' Deathtrap. In the match, Rott-Bott was lifted by Deathtrap several times and lost on a judge's vote, knocking Rott-Bott to the loser's bracket where it lost to Gorange 3 on a crowd vote.
Rott-Bott 2000's only match in Season 1.0 was against Paul Mathus' Das Bot. In the match, Rott-Bott was immediately pushed by Das Bot into the killsaws, where it was sent flying. This impact from the knocked out Rott-Bott and it was counted out and eliminated from the competition.
Rott-Bott 2000 wasn't done, however, as it entered in one of two lightweight consolation rumbles. In the beginning of the rumble, Rott-Bott's weaponry wasn't working, so it nudged Dr. Inferno Jr. and Mouser Mecha-Catbot. Rott-Bott was then pushed by Mouser Mecha-Catbot over Sallad. Rott-Bott later pushed Chiabot against the spike strip. Rott-Bott then did battle with Mouser Mecha-Catbot, being flipped several times but shoving it against the spike strip. Rott-Bott then drove over Sallad and was attacked by Serial Box Killer. Rott-Bott continued to battle Mouser until time ran out. The judges chose Rott-Bott 2000, Sallad, Serial Box Killer, and Mouser Mecha-Catbot to advance to the royal lightweight rumble.
