"Never smile at a Crocodile"
— Team motto

Sobek was a robot from Massachusetts competing in the Civil War competition and US Championship. For the Civil War, it represented the Union and reach the semi-finals having defeated runners-up The Revolutionist, but lost in Round One of the US Championships. Interestingly, out of three battles, two had House Robots interfering with Sobek and receiving yellow cards.

Sobek is the name of the Egyptian God of crocodiles.

DesignEdit

Sobek was an invertible, four-wheeled designed somewhat off a crocodile with a pneumatic jaw and two movable arms to lift the robot up. The wheels, however, were exposed and not particularly strong, having broken off on two occasions. During the Civil War, Sobek carried a sacrificial tire on its crusher.

Design-wise, Sobek strongly resembles two-time BattleBots super-heavyweight champion Diesector.

Robot HistoryEdit

Season 1Edit

Sobekvsrevoultionist RWEW

The Revolutionist rips off the sacrificial tire off of Sobek.

Representing the Union, Sobek met The Revolutionist, which spun up to speed and shredded the sacrificial tire instantly. The Revolutionist then landed several blows on Sobek, who attempted to retaliate.
"Can they get inside The Revolutionist, it doesn't look like it. It doesnt look like those jaws are going to do any good."
— Stefan Frank

However, despite Sobek being unable to bite The Revolutionist, the Confederacy's machine stopped spinning. It continued to move sluggishly, but Sobek kept pushing until Sergeant Bash tackled it due to the lack of activity in the match. After Refbot chased the Sergeant away, Sobek attempted to chase The Revolutionist, but Sergeant Bash interrupted again as time ran out. Sergeant Bash received a yellow card and the match went to the judges, who chose Sobek to go through.

6 Million Dollar Mouse rips off one of Sobek's self-righting arms.

Sobek met another spinner in 6 Million Dollar Mouse. Neither dealt damage early on, but the Mouse managed to smash and bend one of Sobek's arms out of place, before hammering at its jaw weapon. Finally, Sobek's wheel was cleaved off by the Mouse's blade. Dead Metal seized Sobek and attacked, but Refbot gave Dead Metal a yellow card and counted out Sobek, before Sir Killalot pitted Sobek.

Tricerabot attacks Sobek.

In the US Championship, Sobek bumped several opponents before being attacked by Tricerabot. The attack from Team Juggerbot buckled one of Sobek's wheels under the weight, severely hampering Sobek's ability to move. Sobek was attacked by Unibite, who ripped off Sobek's wheel entirely for the second time in the Season. Sobek tried to keep up with the battle, but was eliminated in favour of The Revolutionist.

"Poor little hobbled Sobek, its got no wheels left to move on."
