Get Shrekt is a British featherweight robot which competed in the 2018 King of Bots UK International Championships. Built by Sam Price, it initially had a dominant run in the qualification rounds, winning all three of its opening melees via knockout and scoring the maximum amount of points available to finish joint-first on the leaderboard. In the Knockout round, Get Shrekt achieved another victory over Straddle 2, only to be defeated by fellow vertical spinner Binky in the Round of 12. It redeemed itself by winning a Losers’ Melee against Little Devil and Orpheus, securing a place in the Quarter-Finals. Get Shrekt was subsequently eliminated at that stage after being thrown out of the arena by Rocket, finishing the 2018 UK International Championships in the top eight.

In addition to the main competition, Get Shrekt also took part in a single Tag Team battle, partnered with Saber-X, which both robots won via knockout.

The robot’s name is a play on the internet slang ‘get rekt’ (‘get wrecked’), as well as the titular character of the Shrek animated film series.

Get Shrekt in May 2019

Get Shrekt is a green and black, two-wheel drive robot armed with a set of interchangeable vertical spinners. The spinners include a large single-toothed flywheel and an asymmetrical bar spinner, both of which are capable of throwing and causing significant damage to other competitors. In addition to this armament, Get Shrekt also has a set of optional front wedge configurations, including an anti-horizontal wedge and two HARDOX forks, as well as a set of googly eyes attached on either side of the weapon mount.[4] The robot's construction utilized a wide variety of materials, including RG1000[1][5] and HDPE plastics of varying thicknesses[2][6] and a smaller 3.2mm HARDOX front wedge mounted immediately underneath its vertical spinners.[3]
