Nasty was a superheavyweight robot built by Team Coolrobots which was built and dismantled prior to Long Beach 1999 BattleBots event.

Nasty was an unarmored steel frame with a 50" rip saw bolted to the top of it. Carlberg was able to reuse all the electronics he used previously in Little Slice of Hell. The robot couldn't move around too much but was able to spin around very fast which was Carlberg's goal with the design. Nasty weighed 240lbs. which would've made it a superheavyweight. However, Long Beach 1999 event did not include superheavyweights so Nasty would've had to be lightened if it was to compete.[1]

In the end, Carlberg decided to disassemble Nasty before the event happened. This decision was made because Carlberg didn't believe it would be competitive and the aforementioned weight problem. Despite this decision, Carlberg brought the sawblade to the event, and Nasty was still featured on the BattleBots website as a gigabot.[2] The electronics used in Nasty would be transferred Little Slice.
