"It's all in the name, that axe is mighty!"
Jonathan Pearce

Axe-C-Dent was a machine that competed in Series 5 and 6 of Robot Wars. Both versions of the machine lost in the first round of their domestic competitions.

Axe-C-Dent, was created and teamed by Mel Easton, who controlled his machine from a special booth with wheelchair access in both series.

Its name is a pun on the word accident.

Versions of Axe-C-DentEdit

Axe-C-DentEdit

Axe-c-dent

Axe-C-Dent from Series 5

It was originally a blue and grey box-wedge shaped robot with a spinning axe (incorrectly described as horizontal by Jonathan Pearce). This version was powered by 24V wheelchair and car fan motors and was armoured in 12mm ply covered in perforated steel. Unlike most heavy-spinning weapons, Axe-C-Dent's spinner featured only one axe, with the reverse side serving as a counterweight.

Axe-C-Dent 2Edit

The second version, Axe-C-Dent 2, styled by the show as Axe-C-Dent II, featured a silver, half-barrel shaped body, two wheel drive and an upgraded weapon - a 14kg hammer replacing the axe to make for a heavier spinner, which now span at 1000RPM and was capable of slicing through 4mm aluminium, but the robot still could not self-right.

Axe-C-Dent, immobile in the arena

Axe-C-Dent's spinning axe became stuck when Destruct-A-Bubble brought its own axe down onto Axe-C-Dent's. It managed to escape, but had already lost power to its weapon. Axe-C-Dent rammed Destruct-A-Bubble gently, and circled around the arena, while Destruct-A-Bubble avoided it. However, Axe-C-Dent suddenly rolled to a halt near a CPZ and was counted out by Refbot. Shunt then axed through Axe-C-Dent's top armour and pushed it into the pit, going in himself as well.

Series 6Edit

Axe-C-Dent returned in Series 6 with a new shape and a more powerful weapon. However, it never got the chance to show these improvements, as in the first round it was immediately flipped over by Hydra, and was then counted out. It was righted after Growler rammed it, but was axed by Dominator 2, causing some sizeable holes. Axe-C-Dent was then placed on the floor flipper and thrown through the air with its rotating axe breaking off in the process, before finally being finished off by being pushed down the pit.
