Trilobyte was an American robot that competed in the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors. It ran on tracks and was armed with a crusher and a lifting arm. Its shape and black-and-red color scheme made it resemble an American turkey vulture. The crusher could crush 500lbs, but the robot was slow and cumbersome. Trilobyte participated in the US Championship, and in the Tag Team (alongside team-mate Trackzilla), but lost both first round battles to Mad Cow Bot. The team dressed up in business suits with dark sunglasses.
Its name originated from the Trilobite, an extinct invertebrate animal similar to a woodlouse.
Robot History Edit
It competed against Manta and Mad Cow Bot in Round one. The team added ropes and cloths to the sides and back to tangle its opponents' spinning weapons up but it all proved to be for naught as Manta merely pushed Trilobyte around the arena and they eventually stopped moving. Mad Cow Bot ended up getting its drum caught in Trilobyte's cloth but it was too late as Trilobyte was already immobilized.
Trilobyte also competed in the Tag Team Terror along with Trackzilla against Texas Tornado and Mad Cow Bot. It started against Texas Tornado, and pressed the pit button, but after trying to damage its opponents, was held by Dead Metal. After it had been released by the House Robot, it drove into the pit. Trilobyte's large size meant Dead Metal tried to attack it whilst it was in the pit. Meanwhile, Trackzilla was placed on the floor flipper and thrown, eliminating it and Trilobyte from the competition.
