- Not to be confused with fellow New Blood competitor Night Raider
Niterider was a low-profile, six-wheeled, invertible robot similar in design to Angel of Death. It fought exclusively in the New Blood Championship of Extreme 2 of Robot Wars. Its active spike or 'disembowler' could penetrate another robot, then sharp teeth would extend out of it and begin to spin around, causing horrible internal damage. However it lost in its first and only battle, so it didn't get a chance to demonstrate the weapon. Niterider also attempted to qualify for Series 7, but failed to qualify.
Its name was a pun on the name of the TV Show Knight Rider.
Extreme Series 2Edit
In Heat A of the New Blood, Mr Nasty and Maximus attacked each other, leaving Niterider to its own devices. It appeared to have lost one of its motors and was only able to drive into Sir Killalot. Killalot attacked and immoblised Niterider. At the same time, Mr Nasty had immobilised Maximus, but after looking at both robots, Refbot counted out Niterider. Sir Killalot grabbed Niterider's spike and spun it around, almost knocking the house robot onto its side. Killalot then put it on the Floor Flipper, which flipped it onto Matilda, then the Drop Zone, where it had a television dropped on it, which got skewered on Niterider's now vertically pointing spike. Cease was then called after Matilda ripped the T.V. apart.
