Snake was a robot that entered the 1997 Robot Wars event where it was beaten by Red Scorpion. Snake was built in 12 days for the event after Mark found that it would have taken too long to do the modifications he had planned for The Master.

Snake later fought in Battlebots Season 2.0 in the Super Heavyweight division. It was built by Mark Setrakian of Team Sinister. Keeping up with his tradition of building unusual, showy bots, Snake was no exception. It was a strange form of walker that used its whole body for locomotion. Snake was armed with a gigantic pair of jaws and a rear drill.

Robot History Edit

1997 Robot WarsEdit

Snake was brought up on display for quite a few events and only fought one battle, against Scorpion (later called Red Scorpion). The battle started sluggishly with Snake making little movement and Scorpion being careful in its movements. When Scorpion gets close enough Snake tries to grab hold but Scorpion gets away quickly. Scorpion hammers away at Snake and continues to do so causing some damage to the armour plating. Snake begins to get some movement but only just, Scorpion is unaffected by every move Snake makes and simply hammers at it when given a chance. After a long and tedious 3 minutes eventually Scorpion is declared the winner.


In Snake's first fight it fought Anubis. In this fight Snake tried to move out of its corner while Anubis, unsure on how to attack Snake, drove over and tried to lift it. Anubis eventually broke down and Snake used its drill to grind up Anubis while it was counted out.

This victory put Snake into the second round where it fought War Machine. War Machine sped toward Snake, but Snake writhed into a stance which made War Machine's driver flinch. War Machine backed up for a ram and Snake tried the stance again but it didn't work and War Machine slammed right into the middle of Snake, which started smoking due a battery shorting out in the 2nd half of the body from the repeated impacts. Snake continued to writhe around and attack the pulverizer while it got counted out.
