Micro-Mute was a featherweight robot that competed in the final two featherweight championships of Robot Wars, in the second series of Robot Wars Extreme and The Seventh Wars respectively. It reached the final round in Extreme 2, but lost its heat in Series 7 after getting destroyed by the House Robots.

Team Mute also took part in the Extreme 2 New Blood Championship and Series 7 with heavyweight Mute, and Series 8 with heavyweight Bonk.

Prior to 2016, Micro-Mute was the last robot in Robot Wars to not have an active weapon, along with T-Wrecks. It was succeeded by Chimera.

Micro-Mute was an invertible, triangular-shaped robot painted black and silver and featuring a long low wedge and static spikes as its main weapons. It also had an exceptionally high top speed of 30mph, which allowed the robot to out-manouever and even cause damage to other competitors, such as knocking Katnip's wheel clean off in the Extreme 2 Featherweight Championship. However, it was very difficult to control, its wheels were easily damaged and it was low enough to get completely wedged underneath angle grinders, which cost it in the Extreme 2 Featherweight final.

Robot HistoryEdit

Extreme 2Edit

Featherweights Pitted

Micro-Mute drives into the pit

In its heat in the Extreme Series 2 Featherweight Championship, Micro-Mute was drawn up against Cutlet, Flybot, Kitty, Dragon and Gladiator. In this battle, Micro-Mute survived a very scrappy bout, as it stayed out of the way of all of the other competitors, as one by one, each competitor fell down the pit of oblivion. Eventually, enough robots had gone in, making it safe for Micro-Mute to drive straight into it as well. By the time cease was called, all of the featherweights and Refbot had ended up in the pit. As Kitty, Flybot and Dragon had fallen into the pit before it, Micro-Mute advanced through to the final of the Featherweight Championship.

Micro-Mute Final

In the final, Micro-Mute went against Bernard, Argh! and Katnip, as well as Gladiator and Cutlet. In this battle, Micro-Mute performed respectably, smashing off one of Katnip's wheels quite early on by using its brute force after a large run-up. However, Micro-Mute didn't do much else besides this, as it got caught underneath one of the arena angle grinders, although this wasn't mentioned by Jonathan Pearce. Despite being unable to move, Refbot didn't count out Micro-Mute, so it was technically still mobile at the end of the battle. However, the Judges awarded the win to the much more aggressive and destructive Argh!

Series 7Edit

The House Robots show no mercy to Micro-Mute

In the Featherweight Championship of the Seventh Wars, Micro-Mute participated in the final and smallest heat, competing up against Rampage 2, Gi-Ant-O and Whipper. In the battle, it appeared as if one of Micro-Mute's wheels had seized up, as it couldn't charge away from Sir Killalot's CPZ. Eventually, it zoomed across the width of the arena, straight into Matilda's CPZ. The same wheel then seized up again, and couldn't pull away from Matilda's flywheel. It hid beneath Matilda, but hit the flywheel after trying to break free, immobilising it completely. Micro-Mute was subsequently counted out by the Refbot, before Sir Killalot held its remains over Matilda's flywheel. More damage from the house robots was inflicted, and Adam Emmett walked out of his control booth in frustration. Sir Killalot eventually pitted the remains of Micro-Mute, eliminating it from the competition, along with Gi-Ant-O, who had also been immobilised.

  • Micro-Mute was one of the last two robots to appear on the original run of Robot Wars without a moving weapon, the other being T-Wrecks. However, as Heat K (T-Wrecks' heat) was aired before Micro-Mute's featherweight heat, Micro-Mute was the last to be seen prior to the reboot.
