Terrorhurtz S9


Terrorhurtz is a robot from Oxford that competed in Series 5-9 of Robot Wars, as well as the second series of Robot Wars Extreme. Terrorhurtz is notable for its powerful axe weapon, among the most powerful in Robot Wars.

It was the second entry from Team Hurtz, after Killerhurtz. Terrorhurtz is a roughly octagonal-shaped robot with thick polycarbonate and steel armour, two-wheel drive and a double-headed 'headman's style' axe, designed to attack from both the robot's front and back with equal efficiency, served as the robot's srimech and was so powerful that it could lift the robot's chassis off the ground, leading to its weakness being cited as 'unpredictable spasms'.

Terrorhurtz has had a hit-and-miss record in Robot Wars so far, finishing fourth overall in Series 6 but losing in the second round in Series 5 and 8, while it was disqualified from Series 7 after arriving at the studio in a partially-finished state.

Its name was a pun on the SI unit of frequency, "hertz", with the prefix "tera".
