Pursuer was a lightweight competitor which competed during the final three seasons of BattleBots. It was a cone-shaped robot armed with a retracting spear. It's best results were in Season 4.0, where it defeated previous champion Dr. Inferno Jr. in an upset.
After receiving a Bye in the first round, Pursuer was scheduled to fight Rolling Blackout in its first battle. However, Rolling Blackout had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. Pursuer won by default and advanced to the TV rounds, where it faced Sisyphus. Sisyphus won on a 27-18 judge's decision and Pursuer was eliminated from the tournament.
Because it lost in the round of 64, Pursuer couldn't participate the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
Pursuer's first match was against Learning Curve. Pursuer won on a 32-13 judge's decision and advanced to the next round, where it faced BatRay. After beating BatRay on a 26-19 judge's decision, Pursuer faced Wedge-O-Matic. Pursuer won on a 38-7 judge's decision and Pursuer advanced to the TV rounds again, where it faced the lightweight champion Dr. Inferno Jr.
At the beginning, Dr. Inferno Jr. was pushing Pursuer against the arena wall near the red square. However, after Pursuer managed to get its spike underneath the skirts, Dr. Inferno Jr. stopped moving as all the welds from the motors broke from the impact. Dr. Inferno Jr. was being counted out and Pursuer won by a KO in 48 seconds.
This surprising victory put Pursuer to the round of 16, where it faced Death By Monkeys. Death By Monkeys won on a 31-14 judge's decision and Pursuer was eliminated again.
Pursuer wasn't finished, however, as it participated the lightweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament. At the beginning, Pursuer was only spinning around in circles and lost its spike in the process. After being attacked by Dr. Inferno Jr. and Tentoumushi 7.0, Pursuer stopped moving for the rest of the rumble and Dr. Inferno Jr. was declared the winner after the rumble ended.
Due to previously competing in Season 4.0, Pursuer was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 5.0, where it eventually fought Toe-Crusher. Toe-Crusher won on a 25-20 judge's decision and Pursuer was eliminated from the tournament once again.
As of 2015, it is unknown if Pursuer participated the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. Even if it did participate, it wouldn't come back for the lightweight royal rumble due to an incident with Nightmare in the heavyweight consolation rumble which resulted in all the rumbles getting cancelled.
