Bash Gordon was a robot that fought in the New Blood Championship, part of the second series of Robot Wars Extreme. It failed to progress beyond the first round after suffering a broken drive chain.
The robot's name was a pun on the eponymous protagonist from the Flash Gordon comic strips, as well as the various films and TV series based on it. It had previously tried to enter Series 6, but failed to qualify.
Robot History Edit
In the final heat of the New Blood Championship, Bash Gordon faced Pressure and Cedric Slammer in the first round. In the opening stages of the battle, Bash Gordon avoided the other two machines, but eventually bumped into Pressure. Cedric Slammer then closed in on Bash Gordon and shredded its armour effortlessly, damaging the drive chain inside the robot, leaving Bash Gordon to only go round in circles from then on. It then pressed the pit release button, before steadily getting closer to the chasm, spinning around on the edge. It wedged itself onto the pit, and Cedric Slammer stopped attacking Pressure and flayed the shell of Bash Gordon once more before tipping the yellow robot down the pit, eliminating Bash Gordon from the competition.
