For the American robot that competed in The First World Championship and the International League Championship, see Prometheus (US).

Prometheus was a robot entered by Team Carnage in Series 2 of Robot Wars. The team later went on to build General Carnage and its successor General Carnage 2, which entered, respectively, Series 3 and 5 of Robot Wars.

DesignEdit

The robot was a silver box-wedge with a chrome-effect aluminium shell with a mirror finish. The motors came from four cooling fans out of a Mk2 Cavalier and featured a circular saw and lifter powered by a windscreen motor as its weapons, but it suffered from a lack of power, which meant it had trouble climbing slopes.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 2Edit

Prometheusgauntlet

Prometheus is trapped by The Sentinel

Prometheus started its Gauntlet run by trying to go up the ramp, but it slid back down it. It then opted for the Sentinel route. With a quick burst of speed Prometheus nearly got past the Sentinel, but was pinned. Sir Killalot then came in and pushed Prometheus back and almost into the pit. However Prometheus covered 6.8 metres which was just enough to take it into the Trial.

Prometheus struggles to deal with the ramp in the Joust trial

The Trial was the Joust event. Here, Prometheus suffered from a lack of power and like in the Gauntlet, could not climb the ramp. Matilda then pushed Prometheus back and almost to the starting gate, meaning Prometheus went backwards by 2.1m. It looked like Prometheus would be eliminated, but Rottweiler went backwards by 2.8m, meaning Prometheus scraped through.

"We didn't have the power to make it up the incline"
— Nigel Sealey
Sarah Burton: "We knew it was going to be hard, we didn't think we were going to be annihilated."
Philippa Forrester: "It did go into minus figures really, didn't it?"
Sarah Burton: "Yes, just slightly."

Prometheus is trapped on the pit

In the Arena stage of the heat, Prometheus' luck ran out, as it was placed up against All Torque. In the battle, All Torque immediately rammed Prometheus onto the flame pit and then almost pushed it down the pit. Its circular saw then fell off and as Prometheus turned it got stuck on the edge of the pit and All Torque swiftly pushed it down, eliminating Prometheus from the competition.

"Prometheus, the Greek God of fire, but it's you who have ended in flames"
— Craig Charles
