"This school-designed robot, Krayzee Tokyo, is very light at 3.2 kilograms and apparently is driven by a teddy bear. Has a top speed of 12 miles per hour and a zero turning circle."
Jonathan Pearce introduces Krayzee Tokyo

Krayzee Tokyo was a very small Featherweight Robot that competed in Series 1 of Robot Wars. Krayzee Tokyo competed in the Featherweight feature Heat D of the wars, and managed to get to the Trial Stage of the heat where it broke down after suffering damage when it "False Started".

DesignEdit

"Krayzee Tokyo like Demolisher and SAT'arn was based upon a remote control car and like SAT'arn it was prone to speed controller difficulties. Its armour was made of part of an old road sign."
— Oliver Steeples of University of Reading[1]

Official shot of Krayzee Tokyo

It was a slightly rounded wedge robot driven by a teddy bear, with bumper weapons to push robots aside. It had a top speed of 12 mph. However, it was incredibly unreliable, burning up three different batteries (including those lent to them by Adam Clark from his Armadillo machine).

"Its armour plating is impenetrable to chainsaws and other pokey things."
— Matthew Davy

The TeamEdit

The Krayzee Tokyo team

Krayzee Tokyo was built by a team of students from Milton Keynes, one of several school teams in Series 1, like Detonator and Roadblock. The team consisted of Kevin Church, Matthew Davy and Chris Purchase. Kevin Church was responsible for driving the robot in its appearances.

Series 1Edit

"What on earth have they made this thing out of? One of its weapons is that curved bumper, they say, to push opponents out of the way. Seems to me, to have been out of one of those stickers you get in bubblegum packets!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Krayzee Tokyo runs the Gauntlet

Matilda billows purple smoke, whilst Krayzee Tokyo is stuck to the springs

Krayzee Tokyo drove through the maze, before running into the springs. Matilda attempted to attack but also got stuck before the house robot's engine exploded. As purple smoke engulfed the arena, the cease was called. This distance was enough to qualify for the Stock Car Trial in 4th place, ahead of Bugs and the eliminated Vector of Armageddon.

Krayzee Tokyo starts the Stock Car race

In the Stock Car, Krayzee Tokyo appeared to jump start the race - driver Kevin Church blamed interfering frequencies from his adversaries. Regardless of the advantage, Krayzee Tokyo spun into the inside wall of turn one. It retired after crashing into SAT'arn just over halfway through the first lap.

"No, no, no, the one that looks like a dustbin or something, is out!"
