- "Leaving the bell tower in Notre Dame behind, the Hunchback has arrived and it's got the hump!"
- — Jonathan Pearce's in-game commentary
Hunchback is a fictional competitor robot in Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction. It is a lightweight bullet shaped robot with polycarbonate armour and with a pneumatic spike and three titanium ramming spikes for weapons. It also has 2 industrial lights for extras.
Its name is based on the 1831 romantic novel, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
Stay away from flippers and fast wedge shaped robots because Hunchback can be very easily flipped over. Try to lure robots into pits or the house robots. Also try to reverse into the sides of robots to pierce them with the pneumatic spike.
Hunchback is easy to flip over even if you only have a fast wedge shaped robot and you do not have a flipper. Hunchback is also quite easily damaged, thanks to its lightweight polycarbonate armour.
- There is a very similar robot to Hunchback in the game Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction called Rat Trap. One of the few noticeable differences is that Rat Trap wields a carbon cutting-disc rather than a pneumatic spike.
