- — Nigel Paget in Extreme 1
Team Knightmare was a team that fought across three series of Robot Wars and both series of Robot Wars Extreme. In Series 4, they competed with Knightmare, reaching the Heat Final before losing to Spawn of Scutter there. In the first series of Extreme the team returned with the same robot, now called Spirit of Knightmare, which finished runner-up in the second Annihilator. However, Spirit of Knightmare failed to qualify for Series 5. The team's third entry, Raging Reality, reached the Heat Final in Series 6 before losing to Razer, and also competed in the Extreme 2 Annihilator. The team's last and most successful entry, Raging Knightmare, fought Series 7, reaching the Semi-Finals before losing to Tornado.
Although all three of Team Knightmare's robots looked completely different, they were all invertible and armed with pnuematic flippers. Also, most were made using several of their predecessor's parts.
In all of its appearances, the team consisted of Nigel Paget, Lee Summers and Malcolm Summers.
Team Knightmare holds the record of entering the most Annihilators (the last three Annihilators), placing second in Extreme 1's second Annihilator with Spirit of Knightmare, fifth in the Extreme 2 Annihilator with Raging Reality, and third in the Seventh Wars Annihilator with Raging Knightmare.
Also, since Raging Reality managed to flip Brutus Maximus and Tetanus 2 out of the arena in Series 6, and Raging Knightmare flipped out Spawn Again in Series 7, Team Knightmare was the only team in Robot Wars history to enter two robots that flipped others out of the arena.

Outside Robot WarsEdit
After Robot Wars, Team Knightmare sold Raging Knightmare to another team in Leicestershire, Team MAD, who are good friends with Team Knightmare. Since then, TeamMAD have reverted the robot back to the old Knightmare name, they have revised the robot internally, and fitted a new flipper, one with a much wider blade at the base. This version of Knightmare has fought in several FRA competitions across the country, such as the Robots Live! circuit.
- Team Knightmare is one of three competitors (along with X-Terminator and Atomic) to lose to the reigning champion in the Heat Final of one series and go on to reach the semi-finals in a subsequent series.
- The battles between Spawn of Scutter and Knightmare and Spawn Again and Raging Knightmare respectively meant that Teams Scutterbots/Knightmare became the second of three rivalries (after Team 101/King Buxton and followed by Pulsar/Ironside3) where both teams reached a semi-final by defeating the other.
