"A gladiator, but thrown to the lions here..."
— Jonathan Pearce

Spartacus was an American robot, which entered the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, losing in the first round to Panzer Mk 2, before representing the USA in The Third World Championship. The team also competed in the Civil War with Spike.

Versions of SpartacusEdit

SpartacusEdit

Spartacus

The original Spartacus

Spartacus was decorated with a thick gladiator helmet to act as top armour. It was armed with an undercutting blade powered by a 36 volt motor. It was comparatively small, and could not self-right.

Spartacus 2Edit

SpartacusPits

Spartacus 2 in the pits during Series 7

The second version of Spartacus was known as Spartacus 2, but simply used the name 'Spartacus' on the show. It featured a new, larger helmet, and the robot was larger as a whole. Its new weapon was a pincer, with one half piercing out of the helmet, while the other half pushed out of the wedge, allowing the robot to bite from above and below. Each pincer operated with a tonne of force, but the robot still could not self-right, and was fairly slow.

Robot HistoryEdit

US Season 1Edit

Spartacus is thrown into the arena wall

Spartacus faced General Chompsalot, Drillzilla, Cyclone, Run Away and Panzer Mk 2 in the first round battle. It was pushed by Drillzilla into the wall, and into Matilda's CPZ, before damaging its armour with repeated pushing. Drillzilla, Panzer and Chompsalot teamed up on Spartacus, nearly being flipped out of the arena by Panzer Mk 2's scoop. Although Spartacus survived until the end of the battle, Panzer Mk 2 was declared the winner.

UK Series 7Edit

Spartacus pits the stationary Flippa

Spartacus 2 had to fight fellow American robot Flippa in a qualifier battle, for a right to fight for the USA in the Third World Championship. In the battle, after entering the arena, Flippa did not move from its spot, only making a few slight twitches as Spartacus tried to grapple it with its claw weapon. Due to Flippa's lack of mobility, Spartacus 2 simply seized the Oregon machine, shoved it around the arena, before eventually pressing the pit release button and dumping Flippa down into the pit, putting Spartacus through to the Third World Championship.

Spartacus was drawn against Hard and Supernova in the first round of the Third World Championship. At first, Spartacus and Hard appeared to be ganging up on Supernova. Supernova hit both of them with its spinning disc, immobilising Hard and damaging Spartacus' body. Supernova hit Spartacus again, which not only broke the drive of Spartacus on one side, but also appeared to knock Supernova out. Refbot counted out Hard, and then started to count Supernova out, which would have allowed Spartacus through. However, the Sri Lankan machine suddenly started moving again. Supernova hit the limping Spartacus again, and Refbot counted it out instead. Near the end of the fight, Spartacus clipped Supernova again, which caused its armour to come off completely. Dead Metal attacked the beaten American machine.
