Alcoholic stepfather

Alcoholic Stepfather's Season 5.0 appearance.

Alcoholic Stepfather was a superheavyweight robot that competed in the final 2 seasons of BattleBots. It was a silver robot originally armed with a twin set of hammers as well as a wedge for Season 5.0. It was a very unique robot as it used Mecanum drive which allowed it to drive sideways as well as forwards and backwards (aka 8degrees of motion), allowing it to always face its opponent. It didn't perform well in BattleBots, losing both its matches. Alcoholic Stepfather fought at Steel Conflict for a few years after BattleBots ended, having moderate success after exchanging the hammers for a flamethrower.

The name was derived from when its control system was being finalized, it moved like someone that was drunk. It was also the most offensive name the team couild think of that could be said in public.

RoboLoco's bar rides over Alcoholic Stepfather's wedge.

Alcoholic Stepfather's first match was against RoboLoco. The match was a fairly close one, with RoboLoco tearing off a wheel and one of the axes on Alcoholic Stepfather. However, RoboLoco's weapon belt broke apart and came off, disabling the bar and leading to a pushing match with Alcoholic Stepfather losing the other axe on its own, but gaining the upper hand by pushing RoboLoco with its wedge. Nevertheless, RoboLoco came out on top with a 25-20 judges' decision due to the damage it caused early on, eliminating Alcoholic Stepfather from the tournament.
