Carnage Raptor was a lightweight robot built by Team Raptor which competed in the final three seasons of Comedy Central BattleBots.

It was a two-wheeled robot armed with a static axe on an arm. This arm was swung at a speed of over 100mph to cause damage. It did well in BattleBots, ending with a career-best semi-final finish in Season 4.0. Its name was shortened to Carnage for Season 5.0, marking a rare occurrence where a Team Raptor robot competed without "Raptor" in its name (except for W.L.O.W.).

Carnage Raptor pushes Whirligig under the pulverizer.

Due to its seeding, Carnage Raptor was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 4.0 and first faced Whirligig. Both robots were hesitant in approaching one another early on and Carnage Raptor nudged Whirligig with its axe head. After both bots drove around without much intent, Carnage Raptor delivered a strong blow to Whirligig. Carnage Raptor then attacked Whirligig's flail with its axe, but caused minimal damage to its opponent. Carnage Raptor pushed Whirligig towards the killsaws. Whirligig drove itself over the killsaws and retreated to the blue square. Carnage Raptor opted to use its axe head as a wedge and pushed Whirligig onto the entrance ramp. Whirligig escaped by driving over the spike wall and into the pulverizer, but was returned to the BattleBox hazard. The pulverizer landed on its body and Whirligig stopped moving. Carnage Raptor backed off and Whirligig's wheel was pounded by the pulverizer. At this point, Jeremy Franklin of Team Nightmare was tapping out and the referee blew his whistle to signal the end of the fight. However, Peter Lambertson was unaware of this and continued to fire the pulverizer on the defeated Whirligig, which now had a flat tire. The buzzer finally sounded and Carnage Raptor won the fight by knockout.
