Claymore's Season 5.0 appearance.

Claymore was a lightweight robot which competed in the final three seasons of BattleBots. It was armed with a white gas-powered toothed spinning dome. It performed decently in competition, reaching the round of 128 in its last two seasons.

Claymore was likely named after the mine explosive, hence the round design and glowing lights.

Claymore's Season 4.0 appearance.

Claymore first went up against Robo Misdirection. Claymore had a shaky start, going up on edge and starting to dance instead of spinning up, and getting pushed by Robo Misdirection. But as soon as it recovered and spun up, it was all Claymore's fight. The spinbot smashed RoboMisDirection apart in relatively few hits, leaving a crumpled mass behind. Claymore did dent its dome a bit by hitting into the wall a few times, but won a KO.

Claymore then went up against Serial Box Killer. Without even touching anything, Claymore got up on edge and began to wobble around as he spun up. Serial Box Killer took the opening and rushed across the Battlebox to hit Claymore. Serial stayed on Claymore and pushed it, not letting Claymore spin up. Eventually, Claymore's fuel line disconnected, leaving it defenseless. Cereal Box Killer pushed it around the box like a little white wheelbarrow. Surprisingly, though, Claymore struck back! Serial Box Killer's drive had a momentary glitch (or so it appeared), and Claymore shoved it into the spike strip, where it got stuck! However, Serial Box Killer was saved by the bell, and the match went to the judges. They decided a 24-21 win for Serial Box Killer, eliminating Claymore.
