Instigator was a lightweight robot that competed at the Long Beach 1999 tournament. It was built by the same team who would later build the unsuccessful middleweight, equally known as, Instigator. Previously, this robot competed in the final two U.S. Robot Wars events as Gator.
Robot History Edit
Instigator was scheduled to fight Bombus Bombus first, but Bombus Bombus had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. Instigator won by default and advanced to the next round, where it faced Sallad. Sallad won by crowd vote and Instigator was now in the loser's bracket, where it faced W.L.O.W. W.L.O.W. won by KO after Instigator was flipped onto its back. This meant that Instigator was eliminated from the tournament.
Instigator wasn't finished, however, as it participated the kilobot rumble at the end of the tournament. Instigator was moving slowly around the BattleBox and it was being attacked by Mouser Catbot 2001. After this, HammerHead was pushing Instigator from the left side and flipped it against Executioner. The flipped Instigator was pushed against the spikestrip and was left there for the rest of the rumble. In the end, HammerHead was declared the winner of the kilobot rumble and Instigator lost overall.
