Robot Wars Wiki

Dorkus was a robot which failed to qualify for Robot Wars: The Fifth Wars, built by Jason Marston and Lee Cornish, who would later compete with Thor. It was the team's second robot, after Monkey Nuts.

Dorkus uses a large, rounded design, driven by two wheels. It was armed with horizontal crushers, which Jason Marston described as similar to Kan-Opener, though was different in operation as the claws were mechanically powered, rather than using hydraulics[1]. The back of the robot also featured a static saw.
