Eubank the Mouse (also known as The Mouse) was a pyramid box shaped robot that competed in Series 1 of Robot Wars. It had a head designed like a mouse's with a pair of glasses on. It also had a pair of boxing gloves on its arms for comical effect, which were listed as its weapons. As a stock robot, The Mouse went out in the Trial round, like its fellow stock robots WYSIWYG and Grunt, after it allegedly broke down, thus allowing future grand finalists T.R.A.C.I.E. through, despite it having barely moved at all. The driver Steve Dove would later go on to form the Challenger team, which competed in Series 2 and 3, before joining Team Joint Effort in Series 6.
The Mouse was originally created by Derek Foxwell for the 1995 UK Open Championship.
Robot History Edit
The Mouse, like the other British robots, did not fare too well and was eventually toppled over. However, during the same championship it was known as House Mouse and it served as a makeshift house robot.
The Mouse's speed and maneuverability took it straight through the House Robot route. Dead Metal was the only House Robot to cause it much trouble forcing it back half way through the course, but The Mouse still managed to complete the course in the quickest time. As a Stock Robot, The Mouse wasn't allowed to qualify from the Trial stage, so it was driven into a side wall and then was announced to have broken down irreparably, thus eliminating it from the competition.
Charity Events Edit
At the Bordon Charity Event, organised by the Plunderbird team in May 1999, Eubank the Mouse took on Cassius and Chaos.
