DesignEdit

Trackzilla

Trackzilla in the pits

Trackzilla is a tank-like robot that, as its name suggests, ran on tracks with a counter-levered suspension allowing it to drive over any obstacles without the treads leaving the ground. Its weapon was a lifting arm with a fang tip, which could cause piercing damage or lift heavyweight robots over, but it crucially did not provide Trackzilla a self-righting mechanism.

Trackzilla's lifter is gripped

In the opening seconds of Trackzilla's first bout, it was flicked over by The Gap's lifting arm. The Gap pushed Trackzilla onto its side, but it fell on its back again. Trackzilla's lifting arm turned out not to be powerful enough to self-right, so Refbot counted it out, even though The Gap had since been immobilized by The Revolutionist. Sergeant Bash used his pincer to grab the lifting arm of Trackzilla, and Sir Killalot pushed it onto the flame pit, then the arena floor flipper, which hurled Trackzilla across the arena. Trackzilla still didn't get righted by this arena hazard, and the team were eliminated from the main competition.

Trackzilla returned for the Tag Team Terror competition, where it teamed up with Trilobyte to face Mad Cow Bot and Texas Tornado. Trilobyte started the match fighting Texas Tornado and pressed the pit release before tagging to bring Trackzilla into play. Trackzilla and its teammate looked rather cumbersome as both opponents nudged them around the arena. Texas Tornado repeatedly got underneath the side of Trackzilla but couldn't turn it over. Mad Cow Bot slammed into Trackzilla, although this attack had little effect on Trackzilla's mobility. Dead Metal started cutting into Trilobyte and let go seconds before Trackzilla's teammate appeared to give up on the battle and slowly drive into the pit. Sir Killalot picked up Trackzilla and put it on the floor flipper. It failed to throw Trackzilla the first time, but as Trackzilla tried to drive away, it was flipped over and out of the competition.

Botzilla

Trackzilla as Botzilla for Robotica

Like most of the other American competitors, Trackzilla fought in Robotica, under the name Botzilla, but was driven by Trilobyte team captain Lawrence Fier. Botzilla was much more successful, finishing as runner-up in Season 2 only to lose to Team Robot Dojo's Flexy Flyer in the Final Fight to the Finish.

TriviaEdit

  • During its initial build, Trackzilla was armed with a flamethrower. Although outlawed in Robot Wars, this weapon was permitted in Robotica. However, the flamethrower was removed before completion.
