Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show
Rawbot was a large Swedish robot that competed in two international championships on Robot Wars. It was a black, four-wheel driven, invertible box-shaped robot equipped with high traction, thick spikes and a powerful electric drill. However, as it was designed for superior maneuverablity and pushing power, this weaponry proved to be ineffective and the robot was let down by its low top speed of 5MPH. The components inside the robot were suspended by rubber gromits to withstand heavy impact. Rawbot represented Sweden in the European Championship and The Third World Championship, losing in the first round on both occasions.
Philippa Forrester: "It's brand new, it's so new, look I can show you it's still got the nodules on the tyres. Oh, and look how shiny and beautiful it is. You've never fought before?"
Anders Sandberg: "Nope, never ever."
— Rawbot's pre-match interview
Rawbot was placed up against Philipper 2 in the first round of the European Championship. This was Rawbot's first ever battle - it had never fought before, nor had it been tested.
In the battle, Rawbot slammed into Philipper 2, but was tossed aside by the flipper of the Belgian robot. Attacking again, both robots were tipped off balance as Philipper 2's flipper caught in Rawbot's framework. The robots drove in a circle and were released, before Philipper missed a flip. Philipper 2 then pushed Rawbot, using its crusher and pushed it into the side wall. Rawbot activated the pit, before being pushed almost into the pit, but Philipper 2 flipped it over the pit so that it did not fall down. However, Philipper 2 caught Rawbot, pierced its body with the crusher, before steering to the open pit and pushing Rawbot down.
Rawbot was scheduled to fight Italian robot Zeus in a qualifier battle for the Third World Championship. However, Zeus broke down before the battle started and was forced to withdraw, allowing Rawbot to automatically qualify for the World Championship where it faced Dutch robot Tough As Nails and UK champion Typhoon 2.
Before the battle started, Typhoon 2 pulled out due to the team having used their last batteries for their entrant in the Middleweight championship, so Rawbot and Tough As Nails were left to fight alone. Rawbot used skillful driving to avoid being caught between Tough As Nails' pincers front on, only allowing Tough As Nails to grasp part of its corner. However, Tough As Nails slammed Rawbot into the pit release. From this attack, Rawbot appeared to have stopped moving, so with this opportunity, Tough As Nails caught hold of it again, before pushing it into the pit to bring an end to Sweden's hopes.
