Monte is a heavyweight robot that was built by Team Mad from Leicestershire. It was the first heavyweight built by the team that didn't have a flipper weapon. Monte hasn't fought in full on live events but it has fought only in the smaller demonstration events held by Robots Live!, Monte also got its name from the robot character from The Big Bang Theory series and is well known for its very powerful hammer that strikes with a lot of power.
It also fought in the 2016 pilot.
Robot History Edit
Monte was built in 2014 and was finished in June, where it made its debut at the team's own event at Edinburgh. It lost its first fight to Merlin, another Team MAD robot, after it was flipped out the arena. Since then, Monte has rarely been fighting at larger scale events and usually only fights at Robots Live's demonstration events, such as those at the Comic Con events held at the likes of Manchester and Glasgow.
Although Monte did not take part in the main series in 2016, Monte took part in the pilot recording, a camera test filmed on March 1st as practice for the main series a few days later.
In its first battle, Monte was drawn up against fellow Team MAD entry Merlin, former Semi-Finalists Reaper, and successor to Armour Geddon, Wraith. Wraith had technical problems and was forced to withdraw, leaving three robots to fight it out. It didn't take long before the drive on one of Monte's wheels broke, leaving it to drive round in circles, until eventually, it was pitted by Reaper, eliminating Monte from the competition.
