Not to be confused with the similarly named World Championship IV competitor, Marvin.

Marvinator, was a 120lb middleweight robot built by Team Mean n' Green, an all-female team which competed at BattleBots IQ 2005 and 2006.

It was a green, octagonal-shaped shell spinner. Despite a disappointing showing in its debut competition, Marvinator ultimately won second place overall at the 2006 event, losing out to E2V2 in the final.
