逆鳞 (translated as Inverse Scales) was a robot from Shanghai, China, which competed in the first season of King of Bots. In its only appearance to date, it lost its first-round battle to Hunting Wind on a Judges’ decision, after sustaining damage and losing mobility in the closing stages of the fight.
Inverse Scales was a green and gold (initially grey and gold), box-shaped robot with a four-wheel drive system and sidepods between the exposed wheels. Its weapon was a front-mounted ‘hob cutter’, a drum-like spinner consisting of several small cutting blades mounted on the same axle – the weapon mount also formed a front wedge designed to lead other robots into the spinner. Inverse Scales also featured a set of on-board cameras mounted behind the ‘hob cutter’ – one with infrared imaging technology – providing the team with an enhanced view of the robot’s surroundings as well as information on its opponents’ temperature.
King of Bots (Season 1)Edit
In the later stages, it became apparent that Inverse Scales was struggling to turn around – it attempted to make two lunges at Hunting Wind, only to be hammered by the latter once again and sustain more damage. With its control problems worsening, Inverse Scales shuttled back and forth across different parts of the arena, before becoming immobilized with seconds of the battle remaining. It lasted long enough to survive to a Judges’ decision; the decision went in favor of Hunting Wind, eliminating Inverse Scales from the competition.
