Tecumseh was a walkerbot built by Team Power, which was intended to enter Series 4 of Robot Wars. However, the team withdrew it from the qualifiers after discovering that the weapons they added to it made the robot prohibitively slow. As a result, Tecumseh did not compete in Series 4.
Design[edit | edit source]
Tecumseh was a petrol-powered, six-legged walkerbot armed with twin circular saws mounted on an actuated arm. The saws were machined from the wheelhubs of the team's Series 1 competitor Barry, while its feet were originally made out of tyre sections. However, these were replaced with dog toys to lighten the legs.

Following its attempt to qualify for Series 4, Tecumseh had its weapons removed and was entered into Techno Games. It competed in the Internal Combustion Sprint event with considerable success, taking the gold medal in 2000 and silver in 2001, losing to Team Nemesis' Ulysses in the latter.
