Mammoth BBSeason4 2019

Mammoth's Discovery Season 4 appearance.

Mammoth is a giant, brown, heavyweight robot that competed in the fourth season of the Battlebots reboot on Discovery and Science. It is a two-wheeled giant triangular-shaped robot armed with a rotating rectangular piece that is intended to flip opponents over. The whole robot has a chassis design similar to Nightmare, only taller due to the weapon. Before this, it competed a year prior in the 2018 Orlando Maker Faire, where it reached the loser semi-finals, before losing to Blue.

Robot History

Discovery Season 4

Mammoth started off 2019 with its first ever battle against Axe Backwards. For this fight, Mammoth added front plates to help protect its front from Axe Backwards' spinning drum. Things were off to a good start for Mammoth as the match got underway because Axe Backwards had no working weapon, allowing Mammoth to move in and try to get a flip in. Mammoth continued to pursue Axe Backwards and lost a wheel. Fortunately, Mammoth came to the event with two wheels on each side, much like Fuzzy Mauldin's robots and was able to continue without any loss of mobility. Mammoth managed to snare Axe Backwards in its own rotating weapon and brought Axe Backwards up on the arena barrier. Mammoth stayed in front of Axe Backwards as it struggled to escape. Eventually, Mammoth brought Axe Backwards up over the protective barrier and out of the main arena. Axe Backwards was counted out, giving Mammoth its first ever win at BattleBots.

Mammoth's next opponent in the 2019 season was against newcomer Uppercut. Mammoth was not off to a good start as they took damage and lost their left fork attachment and got thrown over, but Mammoth quickly righted itself. Mammoth then took a big hit from Uppercut that toppled it over again on the arena barrier, this time having one of its motors ripped out, as well as losing a wheel. Mammoth laid motionless as they took another hit from Uppercut, which nearly righted them, but also ruptured the fuel tank. Mammoth was now on fire and being counted out, giving Uppercut the win by KO.

Mammoth was then placed against another newcomer vertical spinner in Wan Hoo. Mammoth started off pretty evenly with Wan Hoo as they were able to keep from taking much damage from Wan Hoo and also keep low to the arena floor to not get pushed around. Mammoth did manage to withstand the grinding to its fork from the Chinese machine, but it was at a severe disadvantage as Wan Hoo was much faster and Mammoth had to keep lined up. Mammoth spun its lifting spinner multiple times, but was unable to fully lift Wan Hoo and ended up getting shoved around a bit. Mammoth did get a break after Wan Hoo's belt broke, rendering its drum useless, and Mammoth was able to break off one of the wedgelets, but that was about it. Mammoth continued to spin its weapon without any success until they managed to get under Wan Hoo and attempted to take it to the arena barrier but Wan Hoo escaped. Mammoth eventually lost its left side drive and was unable to do any further attempts as its chain came off as the time ran out. The judges awarded Wan Hoo a unanimous 3-0 decision.

Mammoth then had two untelevised fights. Its first was against new bot Foxtrot, in a revenge fight from the 2018 Orlando Maker Faire. Mammoth was able to get its revenge after Foxtrot drove into its hollow body and get stuck. It's unknown what happened to Foxtrot, but it was KO'd.

Mammoth's second untelevised fight was against veteran, the multibot of Gemini. Unfortunately, things didn't go as easy for Mammoth as it was swarmed on multiple sides by the two bots, having shots given out to its wheels and front. In the end, the hits immobilized Mammoth, giving Gemini the win by KO.

"This woolly beast is back and on the hunt. And it's something you really don't want to confront, like your feelings. It's MAMMOTH!"

"Make way for the gigantic killing machine from the Pleistocene. It's not fat, it's just a little... tusky. It's MAMMOTH!"

"This bot is so big that I feel the need to mention it every time it's inside the BattleBox. But it's also got a launcher and tusk, and those are going to kick your butt. It's time to slammoth, by the mighty MAMMOTH!"
