Cassius Chrome was the very last House Robot to be created, debuting in Series 7 of Robot Wars. He was designed by Rob Englebright (of Killer Carrot 2 fame) to look like a heavyweight boxer, complete with a black eye. The robot was named after the late heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali's former name Cassius Clay.

His main weapons were a large shovel and two "boxing" arms with interchangeable fists, either sharp spikes or boxing glove-esque rams. The weapons on their own were generally ineffective, but Cassius Chrome was also able to use his speed and pushing power to great effect.

In March 2016, the BBC confirmed that Cassius Chrome alongside Growler, Mr Psycho, Refbot and Sgt Bash will not return for the 2016 series.
