The Termite was a US competitor robot from Team Critter that competed in the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors.
The Termite it lost in the first round of the US championship to Dragbot and King of Diamonds after the team forgot to charge their robot's battery, but had slightly more success in the Annihilator and Tag Team Terror.
The team also fought with Close Enough in the first season.
The Termite was a low four-wheel driven wedge robot. Its wheels were uniquely designed as they were set at a twenty-three degree angle for better stability. It weapon was an array of cutting discs at the front spinning at 3000 RPM.
After a disappointing performance in the championship, The Termite competed in the Annihilator and passively made it through the first two rounds after Thor's Hammer and Hyperactive were thrown out of the arena by Cyclone. In the third round, it was more aggressive, attacking The Brute and getting under it several times. However, Cyclone struck The Termite with its disc, knocking one of its wheels off. The house robots attacked the immobilized Termite but it managed to get away with three wheels intact. At the end, The Termite ran out of battery power again and was pitted by The Brute.
