Demon was a robot that competed in Series 2 of Robot Wars.Demon was a very basic box-shaped robot with steel spikes at the front and a very low top speed of only 2MPH. The low speed was because the motor came from an indoor wheelchair, which was less powerful than an outdoor wheelchair motor.
Demon and its team did not return after Series 2, but Nick Adams would build and compete with a series of largely successful robots, starting with Thing 2 the following year.
Robot History Edit
In the Gauntlet, Demon crawled out of the starting gate, and dived into the Sentinel route as the sphere came rolling past. As Demon tried to dodge The Sentinel it was pinned against it repeatedly by Matilda, sustaining damage from the chainsaw. Despite this Demon pushed Matilda towards the End Zone, before turning and being shoved perilously close to the pit. After just about escaping that, Demon turned and spun past Matilda and Sir Killalot, before eventually squeezing into the End Zone.
In the King of the Castle trial, it was immediately caught by Dead Metal, taking punishment from the circular saw. The House Robots nudged it towards the edge although Demon withstood the pressure, before Sergeant Bash came in with a charge and took both itself and Demon off the ring, giving it a time of 27.47 seconds.
Demon came up against The Mule in the Semi-Finals, withstanding early aggression from Roger Plant's machine. The Mule shoved Demon towards the PPZ, before Demon pushed The Mule there. Despite this, Sir Killalot came in and attacked Demon as it had become immobilised. As the fight came to a close, Sir Killalot tried to drive up the front of Demon. The fight went to the Judges, but they ruled in favour of The Mule.
