For the predecessor to Chip that failed to qualify for Series 3 and 4, see Xenomorph (Series 3).

Xenomorph was a heavyweight robot which competed exclusively in Series 7 of Robot Wars, losing its only battle to Iron-Awe 2.1 and Hammerhead 2.

DesignEdit

"A two-wheeled cross, if you like, with the dragging wedge-shaped tail and a front arm with a spinning disc on a moving arm. Can run upside down, can attack forwards and backwards, but is quite light, I think."
Jonathan Pearce sums up Xenomorph
Xenomorph

Front view of Xenomorph

The robot featured a front arm with a vertical spinning disc as its weaponry, powered by two wheelchair motors. It was invertible and could attack forwards or backwards. The robot highly resembled the 1995 Robot Wars co-champion The Master, as well as experienced UK competitor Sumpthing.

EtymologyEdit

Xenomorph was named after the Alien from the film series Alien, which is often known as Xenomorph.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 7Edit

"Newcomers, but looks mean and fairly impressive."
— Jonathan Pearce as Xenomorph enters the arena

Xenomorph competed in the penultimate heat of the Seventh Wars. In its first round battle, Xenomorph went up against Robot Wars veterans Iron-Awe 2.1, Dutch entrant Hammerhead 2 and fellow newcomers DisConstructor.

After a sluggish few opening seconds of the fight, Xenomorph was pinned beneath Hammerhead 2 as the latter was flipped over by Iron-Awe 2.1. Xenomorph's saw sliced into Hammerhead 2, before Xenomorph was then teamed up on by Iron-Awe 2.1 and DisConstructor. However, DisConstructor then drove into the pit of its own accord. Xenomorph spent the majority of the battle being axed, flipped and shoved around by Iron-Awe 2.1, which left some evident damage later on. Xenomorph was comparatively slow for then on, but then the battle went to a Judges' decision, which eliminated Xenomorph from the competition, alongside DisConstructor, which had already been ruled out of the decision.
