Gemini vs The Creature

Clusterbots, first introduced in the fourth series of Robot Wars, are a special type of competitor robot which consist of two or more greatly identical robots rather than one. They would enter the arena together as one machine, before separating and fighting as separate robots when the battle began.

Clusterbots were rather uncommon in Robot Wars, with only five having competed in the UK Series to date. These were joint-pioneer and Series 4 Heat-Finalist Gemini, (heavyweight), Black and Blue (heavyweight), Crackers 'n' Smash (heavyweight), Typhoon Twins (middleweight) and Legion (antweight).

The rules governed for clusterbots state that while there are no limits for the number of robots they can be made out of, the combined weight of each robot must be within the given weight limit for each category (for example, 79.4kg, 100kg or 110kg for heavyweights).


Did you know...

  • ...that the name of Team Panda's antweight, Pants, stands for 'Panda Monium's Antweight Sister'?
  • ...that according to BARB, Heat K of Series 2 became the first Robot Wars episode to top the thirty highest rated weekly BBC 2 broadcasts?
  • ...that of every robot to win an Award (other than Most Promising Newcomer), only Derek and Crushtacean debuted after The Third Wars?
