Ripper was a featherweight robot which competed in the Featherweight Championship of Series 2 of Robot Wars. Entered by The Yorkshire Rippers (also known as Team Ripper), it lost the championship to Demolisher after becoming immobilised due to an uncharged battery.
Ripper was a black robot with a low box-shaped body and a pickaxe as its weapon. Its name was written in red along its weapon mount, while the robot also featured a plough-like panel with an 'L' plate sticker.

Ripper competed solely in the Featherweight Championship, which was partially broadcast as part of the end-of-series special, The Grudge Matches. It fought Armadillo, Anarchy and Series 1 Heat Finalist Demolisher, but entered the battle with uncharged batteries. As a result, Ripper moved just a few centimetres before suddenly becoming immobilised, after which it was rammed by Demolisher. Matilda proceeded to cause significant damage to Ripper, which ultimately lost the battle - and the Featherweight Championship - to Demolisher.
