The Baron was a middleweight robot built by Canadian team Chaos Bots, which entered Season 5.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots.

It was a two-wheel drive robot armed with a thwacking arm and armored in metal recycled from road signs. Originally called Baron Von Smashtofen, the robot's name was changed ahead of Season 5.0 filming for unknown reasons.

Due to complications with the bot being several pounds overweight, a lack of practice, and being let down with certain sponsors, Chaos Bots ultimately withdrew The Baron from the competition and would not compete again in BattleBots.[1]

"There were MANY factors that led to this decision, the bot was several pounds overweight (by our measurements anyway), and I hadn't had any time to practice driving, are a few of the major ones."
