"Mo-mayhem, mo-carnage, Mobot!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Mobot was a robot that exclusively competed in the seventh series of Robot Wars, where it was thrown out of the arena by Thermidor 2 in its only battle.

Mobot was a large, bulky, cutoff wedge made from aluminium with a steel chassis. Its weapon was a 23 inch spinning blade mounted underneath the body, weighing around 20kg and spinning at 45mph at both ends. The team captain described Mobot as "cannon fodder", supported by the fact that it only used alloy armour and a petrol engine.

"We're cannon fodder...I've got a bucket to take it home in"
— Matthew Corrall

Mobot participated in Heat J of the Seventh Wars. In its first round battle, the newcomers were placed up against three veterans; the number 14 seeds Thermidor 2, 8645T 2 and Mighty Mouse.

In the battle, Mobot went after 8645T 2, but could not do any damage with its blade. Mighty Mouse then came in at speed and rammed Mobot, while Thermidor 2 removed 8645T 2 from the action by flipping it onto its side, from which the latter couldn't self-right. Thermidor 2 then slid beneath the sluggish Mobot and threw it head-over-heels over the arena side wall, eliminating it from the competition.

"Thermidor, trying to grapple and grasp Mobot, and toss it out!"
