Robot Wars Wiki

"Adam and Daniel’s dad set up the engineering firm, which they now own, when they were eight years old. As children, they were immersed in the business and credit their love of engineering to this."
— The Robot Wars website on Team Mute's introduction to engineering[1]

Team Mute is a team of roboteers that debuted in Robot Wars Extreme: Series 2, before entering Series 7 and 8 of Robot Wars.

The Team[]

Team Mute in 2003

Adam and Daniel Emmett are twin brothers, and are engineers by trade, owning the family business opened by their father Peter Emmett over thirty years ago. The Robot Wars website claims that they were immersed in the business and credit their love of engineering to this[2].

Team Mute entered a heavyweight robot, Mute, a front-hinged flipper and namesake of the team, which was originally built to enter Series 4, into Series 7 of Robot Wars, and Extreme 2. Team Mute also entered two Featherweight Championships with Micro Mute. In 2016, Team Mute entered with Bonk.

Team Mute enjoyed a fair amount of success on Robot Wars, as Micro Mute reached the final of the Featherweight Championship in Extreme 2, while Mute was the runner-up of the New Blood Championship, and a heat winner in the Seventh Wars. However, Bonk lost its only battle, and was not selected to compete in Series 9[3].

Adam Emmett also briefly owned Eric in the time Robot Wars was off-air, hoping to restore it, however, he did not have the time, and Eric was sold on again.
