Milly-Ann Bug (spelt in-game as Milly-Ann-Bug) was a competitor from Series 2 to 4 of Robot Wars. Built to resemble a caterpillar, it had two hemispherical pods with independent four wheel drive and a set of spikes on the front and rear. Milly-Ann Bug made its only appearance in the Robot Wars video games in Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem.
Appearance and Armament
Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem was the first Robot Wars game and as such Milly-Ann Bug was one of the first competitor robots to be playable. Due to the Game Boy Color's comparatively poor graphics, the arenas and robots could not be very detailed, and the same goes for Milly-Ann Bug.
The game model is easily distinguishable as its real life counterpart. It retains its yellow and green colour pattern, although the wheels are simply black in the game. The face is visible, but not very detailed. The most noticeable difference between the game model and the real robot is that it lacks its trademark, the articulation ability.
In battle, Milly-Ann-Bug's method of attack is using its spikes. Like all CPU contestant robots, it will use its weapon when it comes into contact with another robot, but it will not always actively drive towards them.
Differences from Real Life
- Like Sir Chromalot, Milly-Ann-Bug's front spikes are shown as active, rather than static, and its rear spikes are not present at all.
- The robot lacks its trademark articulation ability.
