"Can Kliptonite bring down our own "Super-Bots"?"
Jonathan Pearce

Kliptonite was a robot that fought in Series 5 of Robot Wars and was the first entry by Team Demon, a team of apprentice engineers. It lost its only battle to another robot from the Isle of Sheppey, Major Tom.

Its name is a pun on the fictional element Kryptonite, the weakness of comic book superhero Superman.

Team Demon also entered Series 7 with the equally unsuccesful Diabolus.


Kliptonite was a grey box wedge shaped robot made from stainless steel with a plasma-welded shell. It primary weapon was a pneumatic axe and it could reach top speeds of 15mph.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 5Edit


A ruined Kliptonite is pitted by Sir Killalot

In Heat J of the Fifth Wars, newcomers Kliptonite were drawn up against veterans Major Tom. In this battle, Kliptonite did not last long, as Major Tom cut welts in its sides and its own axe was unable to land successful blows. Kliptonite broke down relatively quickly, and it was shredded severely by Matilda. Sir Killalot and Matilda dealt more damage to it, before the defeated machine was dumped down into the pit of oblivion, eliminating Kliptonite from the competition.
"The House robots, Sir Killalot and Matilda, to punish Kliptonite for bringing in a sub-standard machine! Bring in a heap of junk, and we'll turn it into proper rubbish, says Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce, as the House Robots demolish Kliptonite
