Jay was a superheavyweight robot built by The Destroyers for an anticipated Season 6.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots.

Jay started out as an advertising gimmick for a local mall which was repurposed after the team discovered BattleBots. The design was a tracked robot with a humanoid frame on the top. This humanoid design sported two lifting and crushing arms on each side of the torso and stood at 36" tall. The arms would have joints at both the shoulder and the elbow for a high degree of freedom. Each arm was predicted to be able to lift up to 1250lbs. The team also planned on having a head with an installed camera in it. This features was ultimately scrapped before completion do to its fragility.[1] Weighing 370lbs, the design was overweight, even for the superheavyweight division.

Jay was named after the team's friend who passed away.[2]

Outside BattleBots[]

Jay would compete at MechWars 8 and 9 with a much more traditional design featuring a flipper. Once again, however, Jay was overweight and competed in the 390lb division exclusive to MechWars.
