Nemesis' Season 4.0 appearance.

Not to be confused with the Irish Robot Wars competitor or Team Raptor's 1996 heavyweight.

Nemesis was a middleweight and heavyweight shufflebot built by the Silicon Valley Destruction Company that entered the final three seasons of BattleBots. It resembled the Season 3.0 version of team's heavyweight Dreadbot in its debut season. It was then upgraded to a heavyweight due to new rules regarding shufflebots and armed with a versatile clamping and lifting arm. For Season 5.0 Nemesis was brought back down to a middleweight and it won three fights before losing to TriDent.

Nemesis competed on Robotica under the name Da Claw.

Nemesis' Season 3.0 appearance.

Nemesis' first ever match in BattleBots was against Sunshine Lollibot, Nemesis ran across the box and slammed into the other side, missing Sunshine Lollibot completely. It stopped moving and Sunshine Lollibot spun up, drove out slowly, and used its saw to rip into Nemesis until the fight ended and Sunshine Lollibot was declared the winner by KO at 45 seconds. This meant that Nemesis was eliminated from the tournament.

Season 4.0

Nemesis was scheduled to fight PyRAMidroid in the first preliminary round, but Nemesis had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. PyRAMidroid won by default and Nemesis was eliminated from the tournament again.

Nemesis' first match in Season 5.0 was against Caliban. Nemesis won by KO and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Feminine Wiles. Nemesis won on a close 24-21 judge's decision and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced Trainwreck. Nemesis won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and advanced to the TV rounds for the first time, where it faced TriDent. TriDent won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and Nemesis was eliminated from the tournament once again.

Because it lost in the round of 64, Nemesis couldn't participate the middleweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. Even if it did, it wouldn't come back for the middleweight royal rumble due to an incident with Nightmare in the heavyweight consolation rumble which resulted in all the rumbles getting cancelled.
