Barróg was an Irish featherweight robot which competed at the 2018 King of Bots UK International Championships. Built and entered by Eoin Ó Cionna of Team Smacht, it initially achieved mixed results in its first two qualification rounds, finishing second against Utopia and third against Blunt Force Trauma Remix. Against Vega, Barróg won via knockout after throwing itself and the Team Vortex machine over simultaneously[1], picking up enough points to qualify for the 8 Way Melee, which it subsequently won on a Judges' decision. Barróg was reinstated as a result, and proceeded to win its next two battles against DB12. When both competitors fought each other again in the Quarter-Finals, Barróg lost after being thrown onto its side by DB12's flywheel and left unable to self-right. As a result, it was eliminated, finishing the 2018 UK International Championships in the top eight.

Towards the end of the 2018 UK International Championships, Barróg also fought in the eighteen-way Gladiator melee, where it finished second overall to Aegis after losing drive on one side at the ten-minute mark.
