"Has devilish eyes and angry temper, but immortal? Is that its main boast?"
Jonathan Pearce

Immortalis was Team Death's entry into Series 5 of Robot Wars. It lost in the first round of its heat after losing to 14th seeds X-Terminator.

Immortalis failed to qualify for Series 6, after losing its melee that involved Ming 3, Revolution 2 and winners of the battle The Hassocks Hog.

DesignEdit

"Immortalis looked fantiastic, a real Dr. Who special effects job with all sorts of bits and pieces glued on to give it a great 70's sci-fi look. It used relays for motor control and had such poor control that they smashed bits of decoration on the way out to the arena. It had twin hedge trimmers for weapons and a dozer blade that was supposed to lift."
— The S.M.I.D.S.Y. website on Immortalis

Immortalis was an cylindrical-shaped robot with weaponry at the front, rear and top of it. At the front, it had a pneumatic three-sided plough and a ghastly face with a spike coming out of the forehead. At the rear, it had a firefly's tail, two pneumatic high impact spikes and a concrete-slicing saw. It also had spikes affixed to the top portion of its cylindrical body.

Most of Immortalis' components were recycled; according to the Robot Wars Magazine, the drive came from a disused bumper car, the hydraulics came from a bus as well as steering wheels, and a dustbin formed the main body. All of the recycled parts meant that the robot cost under £100 to build.

QualificationEdit

At the Series 5 qualifiers, Immortalis fought S.M.I.D.S.Y., Tridentate (under the name Trident- not to be confused with the Series 3 semi-finalist Trident), and Viking. It suffered control problems and lost the battle to Viking, but was given a discretionary place regardless.

"We attack Trident with the disk and I think it died there and then (well, it was dead when it landed, so we pushed it into the pit :) Immortalis was quietly wrecking itself against any immovable object cus they couldn't steer :( and Viking started tussling with us. This was the point where we lost drive again (low batts). We got shoved into a corner and managed to keep Shunt and Viking at bay with the disk, we got pickaxed again but the damage wasn't so bad."

Immortalis returned for the Series 6 qualifiers. It fought Ming 3, Revolution 2 and The Hassocks Hog. It broke down, and consequently failed to qualify. [2]

Immortalis is pitted

Immortalis faced the 14th seeds X-Terminator. After a sluggish start from Immortalis, the seeded machine moved in and hit Team Death's entry a few times with its axe. After one hit, the axe was stuck in Immortalis and as it drove backwards, the seeds retracted their axe and flipped themselves over, stopping them both. After being freed by Refbot, Immortalis tried to escape, but ran into the house robots. An axe blow from Shunt onto the globe on the back immobilised Immortalis, so it was counted out and eliminated, before being pushed down the pit by Shunt.
