Kingpin BBSeason4 2019

Kingpin's Discovery Season 4 appearance.

Kingpin is a heavyweight robot which competed in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It is a two-wheel, T-shaped, blue and purple robot based on bowling. The top of the bot is painted like a bowling lane, a bowling ball on the front, and a bowling alley based text on the side. For weaponry, Kingpin is armed with a horizontal spinning bar with a bowling pin painted on each end, furthering the theme. Due to the wheels being so low, the robot isn't invertible, has no way of righting itself if flipped completely over, and the chains are completely exposed, making them prime targets.

Robot History

Discovery Season 4

Kingpin's first fight was an untelevised rumble alongside fellow newcomers Daisy Cutter and Deep Six. Kingpin stayed out of trouble as Deep Six disabled Daisy Cutter's drum then proceeded to tip itself over. With Deep Six down, Kingpin forced Daisy Cutter into a wall at some point and grind its side in a bit. With both opponents immobile, Kingpin won by KO.

Kingpin's next opponent was against another newcomer, this time in Shatter!. When the match began, Kingpin didn't move from its square as its spinner spun up and swung it into the screws. Kingpin never got moving from there as Shatter! came in and delivered numerous blows to the top of Kingpin. Shatter! landed a final shot onto Kingpin's spinner, which sent the bowling based bot into the corner, having lost a wheel and chain, as well as billow out smoke. With no movement since the very start, Kingpin was counted out as the smoke got worse, giving Shatter! the win by KO.
