Crabsolutely Clawful is a British featherweight robot which competed in the 2018 King of Bots UK International Championships. Built and entered by Joe Brown, the robot enjoyed limited success in the main championship, where it was eliminated in the qualification rounds after finishing third to Shrapnel and Aegis, and second to Get Shrekt in each of its opening battles. Crabsolutely Clawful also took part in two whiteboard battles, a Tag Team battle (partnered with Take Cover) and the Gladiator, but did not pick up any victories in these either.
As its name suggested, Crabsolutely Clawful was a red, two-wheel drive robot designed to resemble a crab. Its weapon was a pair of horizontal grabbing arms modelled on a crab's claws, which opened and closed together using a linear actuator. The arms themselves had a reach wider than the robot itself, allowing Crabsolutely Clawful to grab and push even its largest opponents across the arena when they were in use. Crabsolutely Clawful's armor and chassis were entirely made out of 10mm and 20mm HDPE, while the robot's flat top and exposed wheels enabled it to run inverted.
