Not to be confused with the Superheavyweight later renamed Black Knight: Black Dawn


The Black Knight as it appeared for the 2009 Professional Championship.

The Black Knight was a superheavyweight (later heavyweight) robot which competed in Seasons 4.0, 5.0 and the 2009 BattleBots Professional Championships. It was a six-wheeled (later only four-wheeled and then only two-wheeled) robot armed with overhead spinning hammers. It didn't do well in competition, losing all four battles it competed in.

The team that built The Black Knight also built Der BiterBot (a heavyweight) and The Axecutioner (a lightweight). Neither of these had any more success.

Robot history

Season 4.0

The Black Knight

The Black Knight's original appearance at Season 4.0.

Knight's spinner was too slow to damage the ultra-tough Dreadbot, especially since it was a flail-spinner. Dreadbot rammed it and shoved it all around and into a wall. Knight escaped the spikes, but could no longer spin and got rammed around and into walls even more. Eventually Knight got stuck into a corner, and its operator tapped out.
