It was a lot, box-shaped robot with no active weapon and six individually-powered wheels. On each side were sloped wedges bolted to the chassis.

Despite receiving a bye and earning one victory against Fuchsia Fusion in the Winner's Bracket, Teenager's run in the High School Championship was cut short following two consecutive knockout losses against Tin Shredder and Mr. Plow IIX respectively. As a result, it was eliminated with a 1-2 record.[2][3]

Teenager was then retired in favor of a brand new build from My Mechanical Romance, also inspired by a song title from the US rock band My Chemical Romance and called Famous Last Words.
