Forseti is a heavyweight robot which entered production to compete in Series 10 of Robot Wars, although it was not selected to compete. It was built by a team who had previously competed on the show with R.O.C.S., which competed in the main competition of Series 2, 6 and 7, as well as the Pinball competition of Series 3.

Design[edit | edit source]

Little is known about the robot's design, other than that it moves away from the crusher weapon that Team R.O.C.S. is known for. Forseti used a custom two-stage gearbox, 4QD speed controllers[1], and sported bright yellow tyres.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Forseti was the god of justice and reconciliation in Norse mythology.

Qualification[edit | edit source]

Forseti entered the build process in early 2017, with the earliest record of its progress being a drive system assembly test posted to Twitter on February 15th, 2017[2]. It applied for Series 10 of Robot Wars through a combination of CAD and physical build progress in its application, but ultimately Forseti was not selected to participate in the series.

  • Although Forseti did not qualify for Series 10, the team still attended the live filming as audience members on May 17th, 2017.
  • Had it qualified for Series 10, Forseti would be the second competitor whose name was inspired by Norse mythology, the other being Thor.
