Namreko was a heavyweight robot which competed in the first two events of BattleBots. It was a dome-shaped robot armed with a lifting arm which was eventually exchanged for two circular saw blades. It didn't perform well in competition, winning only one fight.
After the Las Vegas 1999 event, It was retired and was replaced by a heavyweight walkerbot named Gammatron which was slightly more successful. Namreko originally competed in the Robot Wars 1995 and 1996 competitions as Namreko 2000/3000 (2000 in 1995 and 3000 in 1996).
