"Let's see if the Deutsche dog's got real bite!"
Jonathan Pearce introduces Delldog in the UK version of the UK vs Germany Special

Delldog (also spelled as Dell Dog) was a German robot which competed in German Robot Wars and the UK vs Germany Special, also broadcast as part of Series 6 of the UK Robot Wars.

The robot's performances in both of its appearances were compromised by a malfunctioning spinning weapon; in the German Series, it lost in the first round to Hydrotec and Not Perfect. However, Delldog performed better in the UK vs Germany Special, reaching the second round before losing to Das Gepäck there.


Delldog was an invertible circular robot with a flywheel rim which weighed 25 kg and span at 1000RPM, around its silver and blue painted body. The weapon motor was known for being particularly unreliable, breaking down before or during each fight.

Derek Foxwell works on Dell Dog

Dell Dog faced Hydrotec and Not Perfect in its melee in the German series. Prior to the battle, Dell Dog had some technical issues, so it drove over to the side of the arena for Derek Foxwell to perform last minute repairs. Once the battle began, Dell Dog spun up and hit Not Perfect. Its weapon motor began smoking, and the ring stopped spinning. After this, Dell Dog collided with Sir Killalot, causing it to bounce towards the pit. Hydrotec capitalised on this and gave Dell Dog a shove down, eliminating it from the competition.

"In our Mag engine, the collector (The part that picks up the current from the brushes and passes it on to the internal coil) has dissolved. However, we suspect that it happened in the clash with Sir Killalot .. because you see the DM smoke."

Delldog also took part in the UK vs Germany competition. This competition was also broadcast during Robot Wars: The Sixth Wars. The team couldn't replace the burned out Magmotor, so it was forced to fight weaponless. Nevertheless, in Round 1, it was able to push Dynamite into Dead Metal. The House Robot sawed through Dynamite's shell and when it let go of it, it just sat there. Dynamite was shredded by the house robots, and Delldog was through to round 2 and a fight with Das Gepäck to decide who would fight the UK.

Das Gepäck pits Delldog

At the start of the battle, both robots collided and Das Gepäck shoved Delldog into Mr. Psycho. Delldog escaped, but then Das Gepäck pushed it into Sergeant Bash. Bash buried his claw into Delldog, actually lifting it up. Das Gepäck pressed the pit release button as Mr. Psycho knocked Delldog off of Bash's claw with the hammer, then smashed it a few more times, before Refbot counted Delldog out of the competition. Once Delldog had been counted out, Das Gepäck pushed Delldog down the pit.
