Death Jester was a super heavyweight competitor robot that appeared in Series 2 of Robot Wars. It fought exclusively in the Super Heavyweight Championship, also known as the Super Showdown, but lost its qualifier battle after getting turned over by Berserk.
Death Jester was a tall, silver trapezoid-shaped robot with two-wheel drive and front and rear wedges which appeared to be its only means of attack. The version that appeared on television was the replacement for an earlier wedge-shaped robot with two outside wheels that the team rejected for not being battle-worthy. However, Death Jester's lack of major offensive weapons and self-righting mechanism proved to be its main weaknesses, as its only televised battle showed.
Death Jester attempted to qualify with their original cylindrical design for the main competition by attending the Series 2 rehearsals. Although it was tough, the robot did not qualify for the main series.
Death Jester competed in the Super Heavyweight Championship, facing Berserk and Automatic Jack in its qualifier. It initially slammed into the considerably slower Automatic Jack, but the collision forced its bodyshell to come loose as Automatic Jack pushed back. As Death Jester bumped Automatic Jack again, Berserk came in and lifted it from the side, eventually toppling it over with its forklift. Berserk would proceed to win the qualifier and advance to the Super Showdown, while both Death Jester and Automatic Jack were eliminated from the Super Heavyweight Championship.
