Judge Mech was an invertible tracked robot which attempted to qualify for Series 3-4 of Robot Wars. It was not selected to compete in Series 3 after a disappointing run in the assault course, and failed to qualify for Series 4 after losing its qualifier battle to Arnold, Arnold Terminegger, where it was lifted several times after its weapon failed to work.
Judge Mech was designed and built by Jon Witte and Pete Birch, who had previously entered Series 2 with Pain, which withdrew after breaking down twice before its Gauntlet run. After a long absence from Robot Wars, the team entered Series 6 with Spam, which reached the second round.
Judge Mech was a compact, blue, invertible tracked robot similar in design and appearance to Tridentate. It was originally armed with a static spike that only caused minimal damage, which was replaced with a drum for Series 4. However, the drum failed to work in its Series 4 qualifier, contributing to its loss.
Many of Judge Mech's parts, including the weapon, tracks and mechanics, were salvaged from its predecessor, Pain, which could possibly explain the robot's poor reliability in the qualifier.
