Robot History[]

Season 4.0[]

Alpha Crusader vs. Some Parts

Alpha Crusader first went up against Some Parts. Alpha Crusader had the classic 2-wheeled instability handling. It could not aim or steer. Some Parts easily got under it and pushed it around, flipping it once. Alpha bent its hammer shaft from whacking the floor. It soon realized that Some Parts were going to beat it if it kept getting wedged, and so it tried to change tactics and do a spinning attack, but this was ineffective. Its only chance came when Some Parts got stuck on the spike strip, but Some Parts freed itself. Some Parts won 34-11 and eliminated Alpha Crusader from the competition.

Season 5.0[]

Alpha Crusader vs. Dude of Destruction

Alpha Crusader returned for Season 5.0 and took on Dude of Destruction. Little is known about this preliminary battle, but Alpha Crusader lost by knockout and was instantly eliminated.
