Team nemesis series 10

Team Nemesis were an Irish team that competed in Series 1-5 and 10 of Robot Wars as well as both series of Robot Wars Extreme. Their most famous robot was Diotoir. Widely known for their sportsmanship, generosity, humour and trademark polka dot fur, the team were a major presence in the early series of the show, especially in international tournaments where they represented the Republic of Ireland on four occasions.

In the original run, they achieved thirteen wins between their two robots, and, despite regularly being perceived as 'underdogs', only failed to reach the Arena Semi-Final/Heat Semi-Final stage once in the main UK series.

The team were very widely liked by the fans and production team. Philippa Forrester specifically singled them out in her handover to Julia Reed in Series 4. Craig Charles hugged Cairon Byrne after Diotoir’s first major success, and his son Jack even joined the team in Series 4 and 5 as an honorary member. Jonathan Pearce often shared in the jokes and praised them as one of his favourite teams. The team were one of the first to draw fans in the televised audience, with signs and even Diotoir’s famous fur not uncommon on audience members.

Team Nemesis made a high profile return to the show in Series 10 in the first instance of the reboot acknowledging the previous series. Peter Redmond captained the entire 'Rest of the World' team during the first episode of Robot Wars: World Series.
