Ansgar-3wheels

Ansgar is a robot that has fought in the 2nd and 3rd World Championships on Robot Wars and also on the German Robot Wars. "Ansgar" is the German equivalent of the English name Oscar. In Germanic, its literal meaning is "god-spear."

The original Ansgar was created by Sascha Thomsen and his father Joachim after seeing a dubbed promotion episode of Robot Wars. It was constructed from aluminium road signs and the result was a vaguely dome shaped robot designed to resemble a UFO with interchangeable flipper, spear and lever weapons that could be fired 300 times per minute. A unique aspect of this robot was to "sit down" so it could not be pushed around by other robots, but it was very light at only 74 kilograms. However, despite this weight problem, it won the German melee.

The second model of Ansgar was Ansgar's Revenge, a walker robot (technically a shufflebot with 16 legs) with a shovel with lifting spears to attack from the front and rear that competed in German Robot Wars and the UK vs Germany Special in UK Series 6. It had hard, powerful motors to produce very quick speeds. Unlike the American shufflebot Drillzilla, Ansgar's Revenge was not affected by the rule change on shuffling mechanisms hadn't yet been established in Europe.

Ansgar 3 was also a shufflebot, this time with a set of rotating blades weighing 10kg like the UK robot Fluffy but much more cumbersome, that competed in The Third World Championship. By this time, however, the shufflebot rule-change had been established in the UK, but Ansgar 3 was allowed to compete regardless. Ansgar 3 also competed at live events in a wheeled form with spikes
