Obwalden Overlord

The Obwalden Overlord (Shortened to OB Overlord by the commentators) is a robot from France built by Rob Knight of Mortis fame which competed in Season 2 of the BattleBots reboot on ABC. It was very technologically impressive, with its articulated arm weapons being controlled by Rob Knight's movements. Despite its innovative design, it lost its first and only match to Warhead. It is only the second French representative to compete and the first for two decades, although The Hassocks Hog team could have represented France in Robot Wars Series 7.

Robot History Edit

The Obwalden Overlord's first fight was against Warhead, who for this fight were using their grabber configuration. The fight started off poorly for The Obwalden Overlord, who despite having 36 motors was rather sluggish around the box, and to top it off had one arm dragging uselessly on the BattleBox floor. Warhead used this to its advantage grabbing The Obwalden Overlord in the working arm, and went to work with its flamethrower. After several more grabs by Warhead, The Obwalden Overlord started melting and the upper part of the bot was on fire. Warhead continued to attack its crippled opponent and even toppled it over before Obwalden Overlord was counted out at 2:59. Afterwards, fire extinguishers had to be used to snuff out the fire off of The Obwalden Overlord. The Obwalden Overlord unfortunately was not chosen to be a wild card meaning it was eliminated from the tournament.
