"Newcomers, looks dapper, Scrapper!"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces The Scrapper

The Scrapper was a robot that exclusively competed in Series 7 of Robot Wars. It was eliminated in the first round, being immobilised on one side by Revolution 3 and flipped out of the arena by eventual Series 7 Semi-Finalist St. Agro early into its only battle.


"Two wheel drive, invertible, with a twenty kilo spinning disc, ramming spikes, 6mm polycarb armour."
— Jonathan Pearce sums up The Scrapper

The Scrapper was a two-wheel drive, invertible box wedge-shaped robot. Its name was borne out of the fact that it was made from scrap. In terms of armour, The Scrapper featured transparent polycarbonate armour, which was "6 mil doubled up" according to team member Andrew Brown. This polycarbonate was also put to use in other areas of the machine - with numerous, hinged wedgelets on its sides.

In terms of armament, The Scrapper consisted of a 950rpm, 20kg spinning disc at the front - which had the robot's own name painted on it - along with a set of rear ramming spikes. However, little was seen of either of these weapons during The Scrapper only fight.

The TeamEdit


The Scrapper's team

The Scrapper was entered into Series 7 by a two-man team from Tipton in the West Midlands. The two teammates Andrew Brown and Lee Shaw operated the robot, and wore plain white shirts brandishing the robot's logo in their only appearance on Robot Wars.

Series 7Edit

"Mostly made of scrap, the scrap pile's where it could end up!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Newcomer The Scrapper went up against three veterans of Robot Wars in Round 1 of Series 7, fighting St. Agro, Mega Hurts LT and Revolution 3.

As soon as activate was called, Revolution 3 rammed into The Scrapper. The Scrapper attacked Mega Hurts LT with its spinning disc weapon, but caused minimal damage. Revolution 3 then continued attacking The Scrapper with its own spinning drum, leaving the newcomers spinning in circles, as half of its drive had been taken out by the spinner of Revolution 3, effectively rendering The Scrapper immobile.

Without waiting for The Scrapper to be counted out, St. Agro gathered up the limping machine and brought it over to the arena wall where the Cornish robot threw The Scrapper out of the arena, eliminating it from the competition alongside the later-immobilised Mega Hurts LT.

"If they [flippers] are powered by a CO2 bottle, the supply is limited, so, is, the life, of, The Scrapper! Gone!"
