Robot Wars Wiki

Bone was the third robot built by Adam Clark to enter Robot Wars. Initially, it attempted to qualify for Series 3 alongside Clark's other competitor for the series Corporal Punishment, with Clark being assisted for this entry by David Dempster. Ultimately, Bone was not selected to compete, and it is not known whether it was successful in qualifying for any subsequent series.

Despite this information, Bone makes a brief cameo appearance in the Series 4 War of Independence special, where it can be seen in the background on a Pit bench during Panic Attack's team introduction. It would not appear in any televised competitions for the series, however, so the reasoning behind its appearance remains unclear.

Adam Clark had previously fought with Vector of Armageddon in Series 1 and a previous incarnation of Corporal Punishment in Series 2, and would later enter Series 5 with Wowot and Series 6 with 259. He would also fail to qualify for Series 4 with Twister.

Design[]

Bone was an unusually-shaped robot armed with three large vertical spinning blades at the front, which made up most of the robot's size. The main body mainly consisted of a triangular section with strengthening beams to support the blades, with two wheels located at the front of the machine between the blades.
