The Spider was an Extreme-only competitor, as it fought exclusively in the first series of Robot Wars Extreme. Built by Team Tarantula, whom had built Robocow and failed to qualify for Series 4 with Son of Robocow, it was strangly considered as a newcomer to Robot Wars regardless. It competed in only two battles, losing to Behemoth in the Wild Card Warrior, and lost to Napalm 2 in a Mayhem that also included Gemini.
Robot History Edit
The Spider's first appearance in Robot Wars Extreme saw it get placed up against former Semi-Finalists Behemoth in a Wild Card Warrior battle. In the battle, The Spider's weaponry had little effect on Behemoth's thick front lifting scoop, so it could cause no damage whatsoever. It was a matter of seconds before Behemoth flipped The Spider over and forced the Wild Card Warrior back towards the arena side wall, where one of its now-downward spinning blades got hooked on the arena wall, leaving it trapped. Behemoth then came in, forced The Spider up against the wall as it hit it once with the Axe, before hoisting it up over the wall and out of the arena with its Lifting Scoop- declaring Behemoth the winner and meaning The Spider had failed its challenge.
The Spider then later appeared in a Mayhem qualifier battle, where it was placed up against two experienced machines in Napalm 2 and Gemini, this was for a right to fight in the second annihilator of the series. In the battle, after attacking Napalm side-on with its weaponry, The Spider carelessly drove onto the flame pit, and its exposed engines burnt out due to the heat from the flames. This left The Spider immobilised, and was later counted out by the Refbot, eliminating it from the battle. As Gemini was then counted out, The Spider was placed onto the arena floor flipper by the house robots, and flipped just before cease was called.
