Like its predecessor [[Vercingetorix]], Comengetorix looked a lot like seasoned competitor [[Mortis]], with the same body shape, and similar weapons - a lifting beam capable of lifting 200 kg and self-righting quickly and a bladed axe (a more pointed one was used in ''Extreme''), but the robot was not too reliable, despite being built around twenty years of engineering experience. Unlike Vercingetorix, Comengetorix was driven by wheels. The robot also had polycarbonate side skirts in Extreme 1 to prevent all but the lowest of robots from getting underneath. For Series 6, it was made out of steel, and the robot used a more reliable speed controller, which plagued the robot with intermittent mobility in ''Extreme''.

The name Comengetorix naturally succeeds its predecessor Vercingetorix, which was named after a [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vercingetorix Arverni king] who united the Gauls in a revolt during the Gallic Wars. The "-ngetorix" from the name Vercingetorix is retained, while the word "Come" is added to the front of the name to reference the phrase "come and get it", which Comengetorix is phonetically similar to.
