Nelly the Ellybot is a heavyweight robot from the United Kingdom, which competed in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. A different version of Nelly The Ellybot previously applied for Robot Wars Series 9, but was withdrawn. [1][2] Nelly The Ellybot is a purple and blue, elephant themed robot armed with a LEM 200 powered hammer. Nelly had a color reworking since her CAD, having a darker purple and an aqua like blue, her name on the side instead of the front, the loss of the front forks, and a blue hammerhead. 

In preparation for Season 5, Nelly has been armed with a more powerful hammer, which causes the entire robot to leap into the air when fired as well as a redesigned front wedge and face.

Robot History

Discovery Season 4

Nelly The Ellybot's first ever opponent in BattleBots was against newcomer from Russia, Rainbow. When the match began, Nelly was holding up okay to Rainbow's attacks as their wedge was able to keep Rainbow's weapon from causing any real damage. However, Nelly started to take damage to the upper body as its right googly eye and ear were ripped apart. Making matters worse, Nelly's upper body began to lose armor and lost the other decorative ear on the left side. At one point, Nelly fired its weapon repeatedly as the drivers thought the robot may have been stuck on an uneven part of the floor. (This was cut from the broadcast.) Nelly then took damage to the right side, where the domed section was ripped off from the front. Nelly was down to one working drive wheel and after one final hit, the left section was destroyed, the top right was peeled back, and one of Nelly's battery leads had been cut so Nelly stopped moving and was counted out, giving Rainbow the win by KO.

Nelly next found itself against another newcomer in Deep Six, who had previously split Axe Backwards into several chunks. In response, Nelly went with a left-mounted spear to try and throw Deep Six off balance and perhaps win without taking much damage, if any. It also attached the wedge dubbed Tusk Wedge as the wedge better suited for the match could no longer be attached properly and there were fears of getting stuck on the floor. The match was off to a poor start for Nelly as it got high centered on the floor and its receiver battery was out of juice so there was no way to fire the weapon. Despite this, Nelly was still unable to to find an opening and lost the entire right side panel that housed the ear on that side. After another hit, Nelly had no ears left and glass rained down from the broken light that the left ear had hit on impact. Nelly took a final hit that ripped off the entire right side cover, leaving Nelly unable to move due to having a battery wire cut. Luckily, this impact also caused Deep Six to land on its face, leaving a gash in the arena floor in the process. Deep Six had no way to right itself so both were counted out, resulting in the match going to the judges, which ruled unanimously in favor of Deep Six.

Nelly also had a match against newcomer Shellshock. Nelly was fitted with one eye from HUGE's team to replace one that was lost previously. When the match began, Nelly took light hits from Shellshock and started swinging its hammer, not really causing much damage. After losing its own right ear from no impact with Shellshock, Nelly continued to take the hits before pushing Shellshock into the screws, where it was able to cause more minor damage. After Shellshock struck the arena barrier and disabled its drive, Nelly stayed nearby, ready to continue the fight in case Shellshock got going but Shellshock was counted out while spinning at relatively high speed, giving Nelly the win by KO.
