For the unrelated King of Bots entrant with the same name, see Robo Challenge#Outside Robot Wars.

Spectre was a competitor robot that appeared in Series 3 of Robot Wars. It fought exclusively in the Robotic Soccer side competition, losing in the preliminary rounds to The General.


Spectre was a reverse-wedge shaped robot painted yellow and black, and armed with two spikes and a pickaxe that ran through the end of the wedge. The robot featured an angry face painted on the front end, as well as two football boots covering its spikes in keeping with the theme of Robotic Soccer.


The team also attempted to qualify for Series 5 and 6 with Spectre 2, a low wedge-shaped robot featuring a pickaxe inherited from Spectre. However, it failed to qualify for either series despite winning one of its qualifiers for Series 5. Citation?

Spectre 'tackles' The General

In the Robotic Soccer side competition, Spectre faced The General in its preliminary round. Spectre spun around in the opening seconds as The General immediately drove towards the ball and pushed it away, dribbling past Matilda before she blocked its run and knocked the ball away. The General wedged itself against the wall while shoving Matilda, allowing Spectre to come in and 'tackle' The General before spinning and knocking the ball away from The General as it attempted to push Spectre away. Even so, The General regained possession of the ball, dribbling it along the edge of the arena before being blocked by Matilda once again. However, Matilda accidentally knocked the ball towards the open goal, allowing The General to progress to the Robotic Soccer final, while Spectre was eliminated.
