烈焰双星 (roughly translated as Burning Twin Star or Flames Double Star) was a multibot from Urumqi, Xinjiang, China, which competed in the inaugural season of King of Bots. Its only appearance to date saw it eliminated in the first round on a Judges' decision, against Thunderstorm.
Burning Twin Star was captained by two Chinese students from western Universites, one from the University of Manchester in Manchester, UK, and one from the New Hampshire University in New Hampshire, USA.
Burning Twin Star was a two-part multibot, with each segment being an invertible, six-sided box-shaped robot driven by three Omni-wheels mounted in a triangular layout. The black and red segment was a simple rammer, featuring a pointed front wedge, while the white, gold and blue segment featured a vertical drum spinner.
King of Bots (Season 1)Edit
Appearing in Episode 2, Burning Twin Star fought Thunderstorm in its first-round battle. Prior to the battle, Thunderstorm’s team captain failed to check the robot’s bar spinner before entering the arena - as a result, Thunderstorm fought with its weapon disabled. The weaponless Thunderstorm approached and bumped into the black part of Burning Twin Star, before pushing the white part into one of the grinders. The black part of Burning Twin Star attempted to attack Thunderstorm, only for Thunderstorm to get underneath, turn and ram it into the grinder mount. The impact immobilised the black part of Burning Twin Star, which Thunderstorm pushed into the grinder before it and the white part rammed each other. Sparks flew from the white part’s drum, but Thunderstorm kept pushing it into the spikes, grinders and circular saws until time ran out – the white part of Burning Twin Star had also been flipped over prior to Thunderstorm’s final attack. The battle went to a Judges’ decision, which ruled against Burning Twin Star.
