"The motor comes from a windscreen wiper, it has a dazzling lights display... but I don't see it illuminating these proceedings... "
— Jonathan Pearce's thoughts on Flensburger Power, as it enters the arena during the Second World Championships.

Flensburger Power was a German competitor robot that fought exclusively in the first series of Robot Wars Extreme. It did not enjoy much success, representing Germany in the International Inferno but losing to Welsh representatives and former UK champions Panic Attack, and also losing to Ansgar in the German Melee. However, it represented Germany alongside Ansgar in The Second World Championship, where it broke down in the first round and was eventually thrown over by Matilda's flywheel.

Although Flensburger Power did not enter German Robot Wars, the German Melee which it fought in was broadcast as part of the first heat of that series.



Flensburger Power in the arena

Flensburger Power was a large green box-shaped robot with a front wedge and armed with two weapons - a front mounted spear and a spinning cutter at the back. It was powered by a windscreen wiper motor, but was rather sluggish and its weapons did not seem to be effective.

Flensburger Power took part in the International Inferno, representing Germany by taking on Panic Attack from the UK, Manta from the USA, and Maximill from The Netherlands. Little was seen of Flensburger Power as it was pursued by Panic Attack in the opening minute before it was shoved on the flame pit where it broke down. It was counted out by Refbot and eliminated.

German Melee

It took part also in the German Melee against Nasty Warrior, Golem, and Ansgar, which was also later broadcast during German Robot Wars. During the battle, it did nothing but evade most of its opponents and move around very ponderously. It did get caught by Ansgar's lifter, but managed to drive away before any damage was done. It survived to the Judges' decision, but lost on points to Ansgar.

Flensburger Power is counted out

Despite losing both its battles in the first series of Extreme, Flensburger Power was chosen to represent Germany in the Second World Championship, which was also broadcast as part of the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors. In the first round, it was drawn up against Diotoir from Ireland, The Revolutionist from the USA, and the reigning world champion, Razer. It was unable to make an impact in the fight, getting pushed into the arena wall by Diotoir. Diotoir then drove away to attack Razer, while Flensburger Power merely shuffled forward before it broke down again. After being counted out by Refbot and flung onto its back by Matilda's flywheel, Flensburger Power was eliminated from the Second World Championship at the first hurdle.

  • Flensburger Power was mispronounced as "Flensburg Power" by Robot Wars arena announcer Stuart McDonald during all of its appearances in Extreme 1. However, its name was pronounced correctly when the German Melee was shown as part of German Robot Wars.
  • All of Flensburger Power's appearances in Extreme 1 were in the same episode as Firestorm.
