"Genesis - Lacks a little bit in power, from two 24 volt wheelchair motors. Rams opponents though!"
Jonathan Pearce introduces Geneis

Genesis was a middleweight class competitor from Series 1 of Robot Wars Extreme. Genesis competed in the Middleweight Championship, but it was immobilised by Typhoon fairly early on.


The official Genesis photo

Genesis is a plain, invertible, grey box shaped robot running on a two-wheel drive system. Like many other middleweights at the time, Genesis had no real weaponry at all and had to rely entirely on ramming and pushing power, something which the statistics boards claimed Genesis was lacking. Nevertheless, Genesis was credited for its tough construction, although thinner armour and a complete lack of a wedge in tandem with its high ground clearance posed a number of weaknesses.

Extreme 1[]

In the middleweight melee of Extreme 1, Genesis went up against Mammoth, Doom, Hard Cheese, Zap and Typhoon.

Genesis comes under immediate pressure from Typhoon

Genesis got off to a ponderous start, pushing tentatively against several middleweights before being struck twice by Typhoon. It immediately became immobilised, and was counted out by Refbot. As soon as the count was complete, it was flung by the floor flipper.

"Do you fancy Genesis?!...Something in the air tonight!"
— Jonathan Pearce making a Phil Collins reference as Genesis is counted out and flipped

Genesis was then left alone as Mammoth and Zap were then flipped by the floor flipper too, followed by Doom and Hard Cheese. Cease was called and Typhoon was declared the winner.
