Mad Cow was the first robot to be entered by Team Boltz, which competed in Season 1 of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, but lost its only battle. Mad Cow was later converted into a new robot, Psycho Chicken.
The team built another machine, Mad Cow Bot, which was lent to their friend Ted Shimoda of Team Think Tank for entry to Season 2. The team also entered two identities of the same loanerbot, Rot Box and Bang, into side events of both seasons, likely due to the damage sustained by their primary robots.
Mad Cow was a comical box-shaped robot with a large cow's head as decoration, with two large teeth. It was armed with a rear circular saw and a small wedge at the front, although the robot tended to rear up on a drive, lowering the effectiveness of the wedge. It used a two-wheel drive, which was completely exposed, a weakness highlighted on television. Team Boltz dressed up as farmers to represent their cow.

Mad Cow's only appearance was in the US Championship of Season 1. It started ponderously, bumping into Rosie The Riveter and later Tiger Cat. Manta eventually got underneath Mad Cow with its saw blade but couldn't turn it over, instead puncturing Mad Cow's left tyre, leaving it unable to move. Refbot quickly counted it out, leaving the House Robots to put Mad Cow on the floor flipper and fly straight onto the flame pit, where it burnt for the remainder of the fight.
