Team Sinister was a team that first competed in the original 1994 Robot Wars event. Lead by Mark Setrakian, the team built Mechadon and Snake, the two most unique walkers that competed in BattleBots. Mark built and entered The Master in the 1994-1996 Robot Wars events. He also entered Snake into the Robot Wars 1997 event where it lost to Scorpion. Peter Abrahamson, Mark's team mate, copied the module weapon system of Mark Setrakian's The Master when he turned a failed heavyweight (originally a featherweight in 96) entry built for the Robot Wars 1997 event called Gigan 2 into Ronin.

Team Sinister no longer competes, but both team members are both still a part of BattleBots, working behind the scenes.
