King of Bots Wiki

The Claw was a British featherweight robot built by Team Chukka (referred to on-screen as Team Crunch) which competed in the 2018 King of Bots UK International Championships. Captained by Georgina Henwood, it suffered recurring mobility issues throughout its qualification rounds, resulting in it finishing third to Take Cover and Neon, and second to Amnesia. The Claw was eliminated from the main 2018 UK International Championships as a result, having not scored enough points to progress to later rounds.

In addition to the main competition, The Claw also fought in two whiteboard battles, achieving one victory over Hedgebot on a Judges’ decision. Alongside Hedgebot, it also competed in one Tag Team battle and the eighteen-way Gladiator melee, which both robots lost.


Official image of The Claw, minus its top armor

The Claw was a large, two-wheeled axlebot with a white and dark gray color scheme, armed with a set of horizontal grabbing claws. Each of the robot’s wheels featured sets of intersecting semi-circular plates, with the intention of preventing it from being side-stranded.

Robot History

King of Bots UK 2018

The Claw (bottom-left) encounters mobility issues while Raving Luna-Tic attacks Take Cover

The Claw's first match was against Raving Luna-Tic, and Take Cover. The match started very poorly for it as it was suffering mobility issues right from the start. In the meantime Raving Luna-Tic slammed Take Cover around the arena, before opening the pit.

The Claw then hobbled over to the center of the arena where it was attacked by Take Cover. The Claw then stopped moving, and was counted out, and lost its first match by knockout alongside Raving Luna-Tic which was eventually immobilized by Take Cover.
