Robot Wars Wiki

"Man, the awesome spinner of Humdrum, at 220 pounds. He's got two maces on a spinning drum, that you better stay out of the way of!"
Stefan Frank introduces Humdrum

Humdrum was a loanerbot that appeared in Nickelodeon Robot Wars. Humdrum competed in the House Robot Rebellion, operated by Team Robot Dojo, but lost after it and Squirmin Vermin were severely damaged by the House Robots. The robot had previously competed in Extreme Warriors Season 1 under the name Joker with a different team.


Humdrum in the arena

Humdrum was a tall, silver robot with a cylindrically-shaped shell, which functioned as a full-body spinner. The shell featured two maces attached to the rim with chains, as well as several pictures depicting a juggling jester. The spinner was relatively capable, landing a heavy hit on Shunt and previously immobilised Spawn Again in one hit under its previous identity as Joker, although the weapon tended to break after carrying out a number of attacks. The armour was also relatively thin like other loanerbots, and Humdrum lacked a firm baseplate.

Robot History[]


Humdrum participated in the House Robot Rebellion, where it partnered with fellow loanerbot Squirmin Vermin to challenge the House Robots Shunt and Dead Metal.

Hundrum is ganged up upon

Humdrum got its full-body spinner up to speed, ricocheting off Shunt when the House Robot approached it. However, Humdrum had trouble getting its weapon spinning again, and Shunt punctured its top armor. Shunt then hit the pit release button, and pushed Humdrum around the arena. Dead Metal grabbed Humdrum with his pincers, easily slicing through Humdrum's body several times with its saw. Sir K then entered the arena, dumping Squirmin Vermin out of the arena before picking up the immobilized Humdrum and crumpling its shell. Humdrum was finally put on the Drop Zone, where it had a pile of scrap metal dropped onto it.
