G-Man was a red curved wedge shaped robot with a lifter on the front with an angry face painted on for artwork, somewhat similar in design to the Hassocks Hog 2, only more compact and without "stabilising ears". G-Man was armoured in very thin fibreglass and was very weak in the hands of spinners.

G-Man first attempted to enter Series 6 [1], but failed to qualify after losing its qualifier battle to Inshredable. G-Man was modified in an attempt to qualify for Series 7, but failed to qualify again. It is believed that battery power failure is a factor in its failure to qualify for Series 7.
