CycloneBot as it appeared for BattleBots Rochester R3

CycloneBot was a Heavyweight robot built by Canadian team CM Robotics that competed at the 2005 BattleBots Rochester R3 event. It was a two wheeled, Silver, invertible, translational drift spinner. CycloneBot also had a unique feature called Tauntware which would display messages as the robot spun.

CycloneBot did not do well in BattleBots, losing one match, and forfeiting another in its only event. The team that built CycloneBot also entered Ziggy into the SuperHeavyweight category at the same event, to much better success as it became the runner-up in that weight division.

CycloneBot also competed in RoboGames, and RFL events up until it was retired in 2007, to very little success. Despite this CycloneBot got an honorable mention in the Robot Combat Hall of Fame in 2007 due to it's unique looks, and crowd favorite status on the live event scene.
