Wraith is a heavyweight robot which competed in the Series 8 pilot episode, although it withdrew prior to its first battle due to an internal fire.

John Freeman, Wraith's captain, had previously competed in Series 3 with Armour Geddon.

DesignEdit

Similar in shape to Infinity, Wraith was a tall box-kennel shape with slopes on top, painted black and covered with skull decals. The robot's weapon was an vertical crusher, armed with harpoons. The robot did not have a surface of its own to crush against, instead crushing against the surface of the arena. The robot lacked a self-righting mechanism.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 8Edit

Although Wraith was not selected for the main series of Robot Wars in Series 8, the team was invited to attend filming of the pilot episode on March 1st, giving it the opportunity to compete in front of a live audience as part of a camera test.

Wraith was due to fight fellow black-and-skulls design Reaper, and two Team MAD robots, Merlin and Monte. However, when Wraith was powered up for the match, the robot burst into flames.

"Link was plugged in and followed by flame. A lot of flame."
Craig Croucher

Due to its internal fire, Wraith was forced to retire ahead of its first round melee, and was eliminated from the competition.
