Multi-bots are robots made up of 2 or more different robots that when combined add up to or close to the weight limit of the event they are competing in. The most notable of these is Gemini.

Advantages:[]

  • They're generally lighter and thus easier to carry around.
  • They can serve as decoys so when one is in trouble, the other can help bail them out in a match.
  • They're generally less expensive to build.
  • Depending on the weight distribution, they can be harder to defeat by KO in a match.
  • Since not every builder aims to make them, they can quickly become a crowd favorite, even if they don't do all that well at the event.
  • If they aren't required to have an active weapon, a simple wedge can be enough to take control of a match. Also, a weaponless member won't elicit a count-out if incapacitated.

Disadvantages:[]

  • Since they have to add up or be within the weight limit of the competition they're registered for, they generally come in at a weight disadvantage individually when compared to regular robots at the full weight.
  • There's more to maintain or repair between fights.
  • While they're generally lighter for carrying, it takes good memory to remember to bring each of them to the event.
  • They generally need to have lighter materials and can become more difficult to make the weight limit.
  • Due to their overall size and weight, they aren't always causing significant damage (though The Four Horsemen were able to cause damage despite only 3 of 4 members being able to compete at a time).
  • Even with proper weight distribution, their weight can prove to be their downfall as flippers and spinners can either throw them out of the arena or destroy them in short order.
  • Their size often makes it difficult for the driver(s) to tell where they are during a match and makes it take longer to get across the arena. Additionally, if they cannot be seen moving by the referee, they may get counted out by accident.
  • If one or multiple robots in the multi bot have spinning weapons, they may collide with each other during a match and cause damage to one another (as proven in Gemini's matches against Lucky and The Four Horsemen).
  • They will get knocked out if more than 50% of the total weight of the robot is incapacitated (though weaponless members don't count).
