"Wowot didn't last long...we liked what we saw, a striking design"
Jonathan Pearce

Wowot was Adam Clark's entry for Series 5 of Robot Wars. It was a uniquely designed robot which was defeated in the first round by Lambsy following a run-in with Sir Killalot, despite leading on aggression and control throughout most of the battle. It was nominated for the Best Design award in Series 5, but lost out to Razer.

"This is called 'Wowot' because his young son says "robot" that way."
— Jonathan Pearce on the origins of the name

Wowot also entered the International Championship in the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, representing the UK with Team Delta's Dan Danknick joining Adam Clark, but there it lost out to fellow British robot Tornado. Adam Clark and Team Delta had previously collaborated to build and enter The Mangulator in the UK Series 4 War of Independence as an American representative and in the MTV Pilot but lost in the first round each time.

DesignEdit

Wowotpits

Wowot in the pits

Wowot boasted a unique design and weapon, being a wedge-shaped robot based on a crane and featuring a large set of grabbing jaws mounted on a crane arm as its weapon. The jaws were designed to grab hold of other robots as the arm hoisted them up. The robot was painted grey with yellow and black hazard markings on the top armour panels, although the hydraulics used to power its jaws and crane arm were left exposed.

Sir Killalot picks up Wowot

The fight started with Wowot trying to clamp onto Lambsy, but only succeeding in knocking the toy sheep off. Shunt then grabbed the sheep with its axe and started to play with it. Lambsy was looking very sluggish and Wowot slowly pushed its opponent around the arena, then into Sir Killalot. Meanwhile Lambsy's mascot had been burned by Shunt. Then, just as Wowot was pushing Lambsy towards the arena wall, it accidentally drove into Sir Killalot, who used its claw to crumple Wowot. Sir Killalot then paraded around with Wowot in its grasp, eventually dropping it. However Wowot had broken down due to the damage and was counted out. It was then flipped by the floor flipper and pitted.

At the end of the series, Wowot was nominated for the Best Design Award, but lost out to previous two time winner Razer. However Adam Clark did win the Best Design Award the following series with 259.

US Season 2Edit

Wowot was drawn against Tornado in the International Championship. It was immediately shoved into the CPZ, where Sir Killalot and Sergeant Bash set upon it, and Sergeant Bash sunk his claw into Wowot's front, destroying Wowot's battery. Tornado used its drum to tear away at Wowot's rear, before opening the pit and shoving it down. This was the last appearance of Wowot, but at this event, Adam Clark found inspiration in Cyclone for his next robot, 259.
