The Saint is a green axlebot which uniquely has a sword. The Saint appears almost all the time in live events as well as Ripper, Thor (UK) and Weird mAlice. The team has another heavyweight called Gabriel.
Robot History Edit
The Saint was designed to be hard to beat as it is too big for vertical crushers, tricky to flip effectively, hard to axe and the rounded design gives it some resistance to spinners. However its weapon is very weak at damaging other robots and can sometimes get trapped by the arena wall.
It was built in 2008 as the successor to the teams previous Saint robot which was built in 2007. Saint is well known for having an ability to climb out of the pit (with the help of pit size or pit operators). Its weapon is a type that works on torque-reaction so that every time it moves, it makes the weapons move. Saint has been a crowd favourite in many of the live events and has mainly won its battles on crowd votes, but it has won the Team Championships 2012 as a member of Team Saints and Sinners and also won the Most Entertaining Robot Award in 2009. From 2008 to 2011, it was called St Hammer.
