For the fictitious robot in Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction, see Loki
Loki is a heavyweight robot designed by Team Kernow, which attempted to enter Series 9-10 of Robot Wars. However, it was not selected to compete in either series and is still under construction as of August 2018.
Loki uses a unique shape, defined by a large green wedge at the front, also featuring exposed wheels on top. Its primary weapon is a yellow four-bar flipper, firing forwards like the four-bar lifter of Storm 2. The top of the flipper is decorated with two ‘horns’.

Outside Robot Wars
In addition to the heavyweight Loki, Team Kernow have created featherweight versions of the robot, which feature similar designs and four-bar weapons to their larger counterpart and compete in various events organised by Robo Challenge and Roaming Robots. The original Loki was a two-wheel drive robot armed with an electric four-bar lifter - a weaponless version first competed at the 2013 Robot Wars Portsmouth event, appearing in six battles. Loki was subsequently redesigned to incorporate four-wheel drive and a wedged box-shaped design; it competed in this form at the 2014 Featherweight Championships (with two drive motors removed due to weight restrictions) and the 2014 Robo Challenge Yeovil event.
The next version, Loki 2, reverted to a two-wheel drive configuration, and was the first to be armed with a four-bar pneumatic flipper. It made its debut at the 2015 Featherweight World Championships, finishing 47th in the competition. In 2016, Loki 2 reached the top 12 in the FRA Featherweight International Championships, before losing to Amnesia in a head-to-head and again to Omega and Night Fury. Most recently, it attended the Extreme Robots Portsmouth event in May 2017, fighting in several featherweight battles. A third version, Loki 3, entered construction, and as of February 2017 existed as an MDF mockup, and as of September 2018, existed as a metal chassis.
