RW Battle Card

Title card for Pack 1

The Robot Wars Battle Cards were a set of Top Trumps based on certain individual competitor robots and the house robots for Robot Wars. There were four packs made for sale, simply named Pack 1, Pack 2 etc. Each pack contained 32 cards, 30 of those were based on competitors, the other 2 were based on two house robots.

The first three packs were based on Series 4, with the 30 competitor robots being from Series 4, with the two house robots in each pack being the two of the five original house robots and the Refbot. This set misses out certain robots in the final two heats so that there are 32 cards in each pack. Due to the packs totaling up to 96 robots (including the 6 house robots), and there were 96 robots in the main competition for the Fourth Wars, 6 competitor robots were absent from all of the packs, these robots were: Cerberus, Saw Point, Terror-Bull, Raizer Blade, The Predator and Overkill GTI.

A few years later, a fourth pack was made, with the 30 competitor robots being based on certain robots from Series 6, with the two house robots being Mr. Psycho and Growler. Any robot that featured in any of the first three packs would not feature in the fourth pack, nor would another version of the Series 4 machine (e.g.: Weld-Dor 3). However, a robot from a team that also entered a robot that featured in the first three packs may be included (e.g. Terrorhurtz was included, as it was a completely different robot to Team Hurtz's Series 4 entry Killerhurtz).

Any seedings of the robots for that series would not be featured on the card.

(The spellings of the robots listed is as they are spelled on the cards)

Criteria on Cards

Actual Statistics

These were the categories on the card that come from actual facts. Although some were slightly off.

  • Height - The height of the robot, measured in cm. Occasionally going to one decimal place.
  • Weight - The weight of the robot, measured in kg. Mostly going to one decimal place.
  • Speed - The speed of the robot, measured in mph. Occasionally going to one decimal place.

Predicted Characteristics

These were categories on the card that basically reflected on what the producers thought that the robots were capable of. However, a lot of the time, they didn't reflect how the robots performed in the main competition. All of these were measured in percentages.

  • Reliability - How reliable the robot appeared.
  • Armour - How strong the robot's armour appeared.
  • Weapons - How efficient the robot's weapons appeared.
  • Roboteer's Skill - How competent the drivers of the robots were.
  • Manoeuvrability - How manoeuvrable the robot appeared.
