- "What sort of imagination could dream up a machine looking like Bot Out Of Hell, a demonic Hell's Angel."
- — Jonathan Pearce on Bot Out Of Hell
Bot Out Of Hell was an unusual looking robot that competed in Series 5 of Robot Wars, it was one of the final two robots from Team Torque. Bot Out Of Hell was designed to resemble a skeleton riding a motor bike, with the front wheel of the motorbike being a large vertical spinning disc. It could reach a high speed of 20mph, but had a gaping ground clearance. This, and the unfortunate fact that its disc failed to work, was its undoing.
Bot Out Of Hell was one of two entries by Team Torque for this series of Robot Wars, Martyn Sloss entering it and Richie McBride entering Hippobotamus.
Its name was a pun on the Meat Loaf song, Bat out of Hell, and it was nicknamed "Metal Oaf"
Team member Daniel Sloss went on to be a stand-up comedian, notable for starting on the professional circuit at just 17. He performs yearly tours in London and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
In Heat D of the Fifth Wars, Bot Out Of Hell went up against 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 the Refbot and eliminated from the competition.
