Eubank the Mouse (shortened to The Mouse) was a lightweight robot which competed in Series 1 of Robot Wars. As a stock robot, Eubank the Mouse went out in the Trial round, like its fellow stock robots W.Y.S.I.W.Y.G. and Grunt, after it allegedly broke down, thus allowing future grand finalists T.R.A.C.I.E. through, despite it having barely moved at all. Eubank the Mouse remained on static display until the end of Robot Wars' original run.

The Mouse's driver Steve Dove would later go on to form the Challenger team, which competed in Series 2 and 3, before joining Team Joint Effort in Series 6.

The robot is named after British middleweight boxer Chris Eubank, with the boxing gloves attached to the robot also being a further reference.

DesignEdit

Eubank the Mouse was a pyramid-shaped robot, and had a head designed like a mouse's with a pair of glasses on. It also had a pair of boxing gloves on its arms for comical effect, which were listed as its weapons on the statistics board as a 'right hook & left cross'. For its time, it was very fast, but this was at the cost of weight. At a total weight of 20kg, Eubank the Mouse was considered to be a lightweight. The robot also suffered from being top-heavy.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 1Edit

The Mouse dodges Matilda

Eubank the Mouse's speed and maneuverability took it straight through the House Robot route. Dead Metal was the only House Robot to cause it much trouble forcing it back half way through the course, but The Mouse still managed to complete the course in the quickest time. As a Stock Robot, Eubank the Mouse wasn't allowed to qualify from the Trial stage, so it was driven into a side wall and then was announced to have broken down irreparably, thus eliminating it from the competition.

The Mouse fights for England during the 1995 UK Open Championship

Eubank the Mouse was originally created by Derek Foxwell for the 1995 UK Open Championship, under the Robot Wars brand. Eubank the Mouse, like the other British robots, did not fare too well and was eventually toppled over. However, during the same championship it was known as House Mouse and it served as a makeshift House Robot.
