Axe-C-Dent was a machine that competed in Series 5 and 6 of Robot Wars. It was originally a blue wedge shaped robot with a spinning axe (incorrectly described as horizontal by Jonathan Pearce), this version powered by 24V wheelchair and car fan motors and made of 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.
The sequel Axe-C-Dent 2 featured a half-barrel shaped body, two wheel drive and an upgraded weapon - a 14kg hammer replacing the axe to make for a heavier spinner, spinning at 1000RPM and was capable of slicing through 4mm aluminium, but could not self-right.
Both machines lost in the first round of their domestic competitions. Axe-C-Dent, like Cunning Plan, The Mule and Wheelosaurus was created and teamed by only one person - disabled 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.
Axe-C-Dent's spinning axe became stuck when Destruct-A-Bubble brought down its own axe. It managed to escape, but its weapon wasn't working. Axe-C-Dent rammed Destruct-A-Bubble again. However it then stopped moving and was counted out. Shunt then axed through Axe-C-Dent's top armour and pushed it into the pit, going in itself as well.
Axe-C-Dent returned in Series 6 with a new shape and a more powerful weapon. However, it never got the chance to show it as in the first round it was immediately flipped over by Hydra. Axe-C-Dent 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. Axe-C-Dent was finally finished off by being pushed down the pit.
