Mr Punch was a box shaped robot with a curved top that competed in Series 3 of Robot Wars. The team consisted entirely of students from London's South Bank University, with the robot being initially constructed for an intra-university competition and upgraded significantly for the Robot Wars auditions and filming (featuring 4QD speed controllers taken from one of the other defeated university machines).
Robot History Edit
Mr Punch was drawn against Judge Shred in Round 1. In the battle, Mr. Punch suffered from severe radio interference for the first half of the fight, resulting in its weapons operating on their own and rapidly draining the compressed air supply. Judge Shred got underneath Mr Punch, using its claw lifters to lever Mr Punch up. The claws however, were not capable of causing much damage. Judge Shred pushed Mr Punch into Shunt, who penetrated the bodywork several times with his axe. Judge Shred dominated the battle for a while, ramming and lifting Mr Punch, until a little over halfway into the fight, when Mr. Punch's control improved and it was able to push Judge Shred around and damage their weapons by pushing them into the arena wall. Towards the end of the battle, Judge Shred's armour began smoking, due to it being over the flame pit for a while. This didn't win the battle for Mr Punch though, and the boxing robot failed to progress on a judges' decision.
