Texas Twister is a heavyweight robot built by Team Toad which competed in the fourth season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It is an invertible, two-wheel drive robot, much like Hypothermia, the teams previous entry. It is red, white and blue, styled like the Texas flag and is armed with a 50 lb, spinning single toothed flywheel with a sheriff's star cut out. The flywheel can reach up to 2,600 rpm and destroyed Michael's test floor in the process. It also has a fire breathing drone named Spitfire which was originally part of SubZero from the third season of the BattleBots reboot, also having a red, white, and blue strip around the body.
Discovery Season 4
Texas Twister's first match was against newcomer Black Dragon. When the match began, Texas Twister caused problems for Black Dragon by disabling its weapon in the first hit. As the match continued, Black Dragon soon started smoking and a fire erupted from the weapon motor. Texas Twister continued to attack until its own weapon quit as well, resulting in a pushing match. Unfortunately, this didn't favor Texas Twister well at all as they were being pushed around several times, nearly avoiding the pulverizer. Texas Twister was also flipped a few times during the various exchanges and lost one of its drive wheels in the last few seconds of the match, but the fight went the distance. The judges awarded a 2-1 split decision to Texas Twister.
- Wins: 2
