Doomba was a heavyweight robot which entered Series 8 of Robot Wars. Despite successfully being selected to compete in that series, it was forced to withdraw from its qualifying heat due to motor problems, and was replaced by TR2. The team consisted of Southampton-based employees of the video games company Multiplay.
Doomba's name is derived from the Roomba robot vacuum.
Through open applications, Doomba qualified to compete in Series 8 of Robot Wars. However, after it withdrew from the competition, Doomba did not enter Series 9 due to time restrictions despite being contacted by the producers, and did not attempt to enter Series 10 for the same reasons.
Doomba was due to compete in Heat 3 of Series 8, facing Supernova, Or Te and Big Nipper in its Group Battle. However, it withdrew after one of the robot's motor controllers became faulty, and was replaced by the eventual heat winner, TR2.
