For the predecessor to Chip that failed to qualify for Series 3 and 4, see Xenomorph (Series 3).

Xenomorph was a reverse wedge shaped robot that exclusively competed in Series 7 of Robot Wars, losing its only battle.


"A two-wheeled cross, if you like, with the dragging wedge-shaped tail and a front arm with a spinning disc on a moving arm. Can run upside down, can attack forwards and backwards, but is quite light, I think."
Jonathan Pearce sums up Xenomorph

Xenomorph in the pits with Terry Weights

The robot featured a front arm with a vertical spinning disc as its weaponry, powered by two wheelchair motors. It was invertible and could attack forwards or backwards. The robot was modelled like a Xenomorph from the Alien film series, and highly resembled the 1995 Robot Wars co-champion The Master, as well as experienced UK competitor Sumpthing.

"Newcomers, but looks mean and fairly impressive."

Xenomorph and Iron-Awe attack Hammerhead 2

Xenomorph competed in the penultimate heat of the Seventh Wars. In its first round battle, Xenomorph went up against Robot Wars veterans Iron-Awe 2.1, Dutch entrant Hammerhead 2 and fellow newcomers DisConstructor.

After a sluggish few opening seconds of the fight, Xenomorph was pinned beneath Hammerhead 2 as the latter was flipped over by Iron-Awe 2.1. Xenomorph's saw sliced into Hammerhead 2, before Xenomorph was then teamed up on by Iron-Awe 2.1 and DisConstructor. However, DisConstructor then drove into the pit of its own accord. Xenomorph spent the majority of the battle being axed, flipped and shoved around by Iron-Awe 2.1, which left some evident damage later on. Xenomorph was comparatively slow for then on, but then the battle went to a Judges' decision, which eliminated Xenomorph from the competition, alongside DisConstructor, which had already been ruled out of the decision.
