Rigby was a loanerbot which appeared exclusively in Nickelodeon Robot Wars. It was lent to Team Chippermonkey, who also entered Basenji in this and the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, and competed solely in the Mayhem competition under the controls of John Carioti's son, Andrew. However, it lost in the first round after it was badly damaged by The Revolutionist.

DesignEdit

Side view of Rigby

Rigby was a two-wheeled, box-shaped robot with a slanted top panel and a steep front wedge. Its weapon was a pneumatic axe which it appeared to share with other loanerbots, while its body was painted grey with black outlines resembling rectangles, with some painted green, red, blue and yellow. While Rigby's axe proved reasonably powerful, its exposed wheels and fragile armor were both susceptible to damage, as proven during its only battle.

Robot HistoryEdit

It immediately spun around before it was pushed across the arena by Diskotek, the attack appearing to immobilize it on one side. Rigby continued to spin around in circles until The Revolutionist slammed into it twice, sending it spinning and causing severe damage to its rear armor. Another impact ripped one of Rigby's wheels out of alignment, and The Revolutionist left it immobilized on the arena floor as Sir K placed the also-immobile Diskotek onto the Floor Flipper. As The Revolutionist and Sir K attacked Diskotek, which regained mobility after being thrown by the Flipper, Rigby was counted out by Refbot, before Sir K grabbed and placed it on the Drop Zone along with Diskotek. Both robots had an assortment of golf, tennis, ping-pong and bowling balls dropped onto them, with Rigby axing Diskotek as the latter drove away and 'cease' was called.

  • Similarities have been drawn between Rigby and Stanoscloir, a robot used by Team Nemesis during Techno Games, and as Rigby was a loanerbot, it is feasible that both robots are the same build.
