Iron Eagle was a heavyweight robot from Japan which competed in Season 2.0 of BattleBots. It was armed with a swinging axe which was to represent the beak of an eagle and a ramming wedge. However, the team was forced to remove the axe as it was presumably overweight. It lost its first match, but later returned for the consolation rumble.
Iron Eagle would be the only combat robot to hail from Japan until 2017, approximately 17 years later when three part clusterbot Wu Wu Generals contested the Chinese King of Bots event.
Robot History Edit
Iron Eagle's first and only match in Season 2.0 was against OverKill. In the beginning of the match, OverKill approached Iron Eagle immediately, swinging its weapon, before Iron Eagle backed off and retreated into the killsaws. Iron Eagle recovered and started to move around the BattleBox. OverKill got in several good blade hits on Iron Eagle, before Iron Eagle backed up the arena entry ramp, high-centering itself. Unable to move with its wheels off the ground, Iron Eagle was counted out by the referee. OverKill won by KO and Iron Eagle was eliminated.
Iron Eagle wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. It got stuck up with Decimator throughout most of the rumble until Punjar pushed Decimator, freeing them both. It managed to survive the rumble, but it lost out to Punjar and OverKill.
