Scrub was a lightweight thwackbot built by Mike Regan and Team Vicious. It competed in Season 2.0 of BattleBots. It was a silver box-shaped robot armed with a long spiked war hammer which could be used in a thwacking attack. Scrub originally was a four-wheel drive robot built for fun, but Regan wanted to enter a second robot into Season 2.0, and converted Scrub into a combat robot. Scrub won one match in its only season before losing to Backlash in the round of 16.
Robot History Edit
Scrub's first match of Season 2.0 was against Lambo. As Lambo started spinning it's disc, Scrub approached Lambo and started spinning. Scrub pushes Lambo into the ramrods where Lambo's disc starts to shatter on the impact. Both robots started pushing each other and they both get caught on the killsaws. Lambo gets overturned by the killsaws and Scrub bumps into Lambo. After more pushing and more hits from the killsaws, the time ran out and Scrub won on a unanimous 45-0 judge's decision. This win put Scrub to the round of 16, where it faced the lightweight champion Backlash.
In the match, Backlash ripped off Scrub's spike weapon, at the same time sending Scrub flying. After a long battle, Scrub eventually lost drive in one side. Backlash moved in for the kill, hitting Scrub a few more times, wrecking its weapon, body and tires. The time ran out and Backlash won on a 43-2 judge's decision. This meant the Scrub was eliminated from the tournament.
Scrub wasn't finished, however, as it participated the lightweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament. Scrub drives straight to the center of the BattleBox and starts spinning. Scrub bumps into Serial Box Killer and it was now being pushed by Dr. Inferno Jr. and Toe-Crusher. Scrub escapes and drives itself over a flipped Sublime II. Scrub was stuck for a few seconds and was separated by Mouser Mecha-Catbot. After fighting The Crusher and Fang at one point, Scrub was caught by Mecha Tentoumushi and HammerHead was pushing both robots around the arena. Scrub escapes and it was now being pushed around by Sallad. Sallad kept attacking Scrub and Scrub was able to escape shortly after. Scrub was caught on Ziggo's flag and Ziggo pushes Scrub against the spikestrip. At this point, Scrub was only spinning around in circles and stopped moving shortly after. The time ran out and HammerHead was declared the winner of the lightweight royal rumble.
