Skeletron

Skeletron (sometimes nicknames Skelly) was a Natural Rope Climbing competitor that appeared in every single Techno Games series and made a debut in 2016 Robot Wars Live event.

There were at least two different versions of Skeletron built, one in 2000 and the other in 2001. Skeletron was one of the most successful competitors at the Rope Climbing competitions and was always noted to be the "poster child" for the Techno Games.

The team behind Skeletron entered Series 3 and 4 of the British Robot Wars with Centurion.
