Goldeneye, alternatively Golden Eye, was a competitor robot that attempted to enter Series 5 of Robot Wars. It failed to qualify for that particular series after losing its qualifier battle to Lightning.
Goldeneye is an invertible, four-wheeled, box shaped robot, painted blue with yellow and black hazard stripes along its top panel. Its weapon at the time of Series 5 was a horizontal spinner with three spiked blades.
Goldeneye attempted to qualify for Series 5, attending the London Arena live event, where it fought Lightning. It lost after being flipped by Lightning, which damaged its speed controllers and disconnected the batteries, immobilising Goldeneye. Despite losing the battle and therefore failing to qualify for the Fifth Wars, Goldeneye was able to cause damage to Lightning with its disc, which remained visible in several of Lightning's later televised fights.

Outside Robot Wars
After failing to qualify for Series 5 and not applying for any other series of the original Robot Wars, Goldeneye was later sold to Team Orr, and fought under the name Mythras at live events. As heavyweight spinners were not allowed at most events at the time, the disc was removed and replaced with a detachable wedge. Despite using older technology, Mythras scored a surprise victory over Dantomkia during this period.
In 2009 Team Orr announced that Mythras was in a state of semi-retirement as it was to be replaced with Iron-Awe 4, later known as Orrion. For several years it was cared for by Dan Townend of Team ASBO. However as of 2013 it moved to the possession of Joseph Montagu from Team Orr who intended to restore the robot to fighting condition, but little progress was reported.
