"What sort of imagination could dream up a machine looking like Bot Out Of Hell, a demonic Hell's Angel."
Jonathan Pearce

Bot Out Of Hell was a robot that competed in Series 5 of Robot Wars. It lost its only battle to Reactor 2.

It was entered by Martyn Sloss, the original team captain of Team Torque, and his immediate family. It was the only robot from Team Torque not to involve Richie McBride. Like the rest of Team Torque's machine, this robot's name was also a pun, being based on the famous Meat Loaf song, Bat Out of Hell. The robot was nicknamed "Metal Oaf".


Bot Out Of Hell was designed to resemble a skeleton riding a motorbike, with the front wheel of the motorbike being a large vertical spinning disc. It also had an engine that came from a microlight airplane; this meant it could reach a high speed of 20mph. The robot also had a gaping ground clearance and no srimech. This, and the fact that its disc failed to work, was its undoing in its only battle.

Series 5Edit


Bot Out Of Hell is toppled by Reactor 2

In Heat D of the Fifth Wars, Bot Out Of Hell faced Reactor 2 in the first round. Bot Out Of Hell looked fast and agile initially in this battle, although its spinning disc weapon wasn't working at all after activate was sounded. In the end though, all of its aggression counted for nothing as its left wheel drove up the wedge of Reactor 2, and the 'flamp' of Reactor 2 tipped Bot Out Of Hell over onto its side. Bot Out Of Hell didn't have a srimech, so it was left in that position, it was soon counted out by Refbot and eliminated from the competition.

"Bot, back to Hell from whence you came."
