For the unrelated Series 2-3 UK Competitor by Oliver Steeples, see Griffon.

Griffon was a robot that failed to qualify for Series 4 of Robot Wars despite winning its qualifier.


Griffon was a red box shaped robot armed small lifting forks. It design was similar to the Series 2 version of Panic Attack, with the small lifting forks being somewhat ineffective at lifting anything, although the team claimed that the forks could rapidly lift four times a second.[1]


The name Griffon refers to a mythological creature with the body of a lion and head and wings of an eagle. The name had previously been used by an unrelated Griffon from the prior two series.


In its qualifier, at Robot Mayhem 2000, Griffon faced A-Kill. In the battle Griffon dominated by ramming A-Kill across the arena using its lifter. Eventually Shunt came in and pitted A-Kill before falling into the pit itself. Despite this victory, Griffon failed to qualify for the main series as did its opponent A-Kill.
