Megabyte (Simplified Chinese: 极速代码), also known as Invader in ABC BattleBots Season 2, and originally Megabite when it first debuted during BattleBots Season 5.0, is an American heavyweight robot, which has also competed as a Superheavyweight.
Originally it was an overhead bar spinner like the team's lightweight Rambite, but is most famously known as a shell spinner. It is The Robotic Death Company's longest competing robot competing in multiple events from the original run of Battlebots, as well as competing in several different RFL events, and also entered into King of Bots.
Thanks to its excellent combat record consisting of numerous major championships across two seperate weight categories, long history, and audience popularity, Megabyte was inducted into the Combat Robot Hall of Fame in 2005.

King of Bots Season 1Edit
Megabyte fought Russian robot StingRay in the first round. This match started with both robots spinning up, StingRay then attempted to slam Megabyte before it got up to speed but missed. Both robots then went weapon to weapon, this sent both bots flying, and took out one half of StingRay's drive, and sent Megabyte careening around the arena, nearly flipping itself over.
Megabyte then spun back up, and delivered a blow to the front of StingRay's drum, completely ripping it out of its bracket, and flinging it across the arena floor. Megabyte then came back in, and ripped a complete side panel off of the now totally helpless Russian machine. Now unable to show translational movement, and only able to drive in a circle, StingRay was counted out, giving Megabyte the KO, and its first ever televised win.
In the round of 24, Megabyte fought Chiyang Jinlun. Megabyte's shell had been slung too low to the ground in this fight and it was unable to control itself. Eventually Chiyang Jinlun managed to get Megabyte's self-righting pole stuck on the arena wall, immobilizing Megabyte in a shocking upset.
However, Megabyte received one of the four wildcards, and advanced to the round of 16, where it faced fellow wildcard recipient EarthShaker. Megabyte won this fight and advanced.
