"Beep beep! The Rohog's coming!"
Jonathan Pearce

Rohog was a robot that competed in Series 5 of Robot Wars. It lost its only battle against Sir Chromalot after breaking down, before being torn apart by Matilda and Sir Killalot.

Rohog had previously failed to qualify for Series 4. Its team would not enter Robot Wars after Series 5.

Notably, in order to match the robot's colour of purple, the team wore purple shirts and ties.

DesignEdit

Rohog

Rohog in the arena

Rohog was a purple box wedge shaped robot that resembled a beetle, hence the robot's name. It was armoured in fibreglass and its weapon was a retractable fork that could lift 60kg. However, its 24V Electric Motor meant that the robot was slow at 6mph, and it had poor reliability, the latter of which would cost it its only battle.

Both the Series 4 and 5 versions looked very similar, although due to Series 4's 80kg weight limit, the older version was at least 12kg lighter.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 5Edit

Rohog's only appearance came in a Heat D first round battle against Robot Wars veterans, Sir Chromalot.

Rohog's immobilises itself

Rohog made an initial charge towards Sir Chromalot, which moved aside, but lost a decorative piece in the process. Rohog then charged into Sir Chromalot, before reversing into its opponent. Suddenly, Rohog darted across the arena floor and wedged its own weapon under the angle grinder. In doing so, Rohog left its body over the Flame Pit, and smoke soon began to gush out from the top of Rohog. With this surge into trouble, Rohog was unable to move away, and was swiftly counted out by Refbot. After the count was complete, Rohog was bumped away from its pinned position by Sir Chromalot, but it was too late for the smoking Rohog, which was clattered by Matilda's flywheel and then lifted up by the victorious Sir Chromalot. As Sir Killalot came over to join in with the punishment, Matilda decided to attack the beaten Rohog once again, mutilating its shell further.

"Well they say don't crush a beetle: if you crush a beetle, it'll rain and rain and rain. In Robot Wars, we're gonna have a downpour for centuries then."

Sir Killalot then had his turn at damaging Rohog, as he crumpled its shell before placing it onto the Floor Flipper, where it was sent flying. This was followed up by one final crippling attack by Matilda and her flywheel, which sent Rohog's shell upwards temporarily, before Sir Killalot let the crippled Rohog fly from the Floor Flipper for a second time. Cease was called, and the remains of Rohog were left overturned, and eliminated.
