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.

Design[]

Doomba was a circular-shaped, invertible four-wheel drive robot with a flat top. The robot closely resembled a Roomba vacuum, and was armed with a rim spinner as its weapon.

Qualification[]

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[1], and did not attempt to enter Series 10 for the same reasons.
