'''Excelsior''', officially '''Excelsior!''' (originally known as '''King Koi'''), was a heavyweight robot from California in the United States of America which fought in ''[[King of Bots (Season 2)|King of Bots II]]''. Built by Team Blaze, Excelsior attempted to join Huang Jian Xiang's team by fighting a head-to-head battle against [[Deep-Sea Shark]], although it was quickly immobilized and did not join the team. In the Redemption Round, Excelsior defeated [[The Martian]] and opted to join Emma Dumont's team, but as Emma Dumont's team filled up with too many robots, Dumont was forced to remove Excelsior from her roster, and it was indirectly eliminated from the competition as a result.

Excelsior was originally named '''King Koi''', reflecting its fish-based design.<ref>https://www.facebook.com/ExcelsiorBot/photos/a.240367226829617/250558899143783/?type=3&theater</ref> Ed Robinson subsequently renamed the robot after the motto of Stan Lee, who became deceased during the time of its construction, as a tribute to the internationally-renowned comic book writer and publisher. The literal meaning of the Latin word 'excelsior' is 'higher'. Ed Robinson had originally used the name Excelsior for a heavyweight robot in the mid-2000's<ref>https://www.facebook.com/ExcelsiorBot/posts/332863144246691</ref>.
