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 the heavyweight of Der BiterBot, as well as the lightweight of The Axecutioner, neither of which had any more success.

Robot history[]

Season 4.0[]

The Black Knight's original appearance at Season 4.0.

The Black Knight's first ever match in BattleBots was against Dreadbot. 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. Dreadbot won by KO and The Black Knight was eliminated.

Season 5.0[]

The Black Knight's Season 5.0 appearance.

The Black Knight's first and only match was against Angriff. Angriff won and The Black Knight was eliminated from the tournament again.

Vallejo 2009[]

The Black Knight's first match was against Surgeon General. Surgeon General won and this loss put The Black Knight into losers bracket, where it faced Hugs & Kisses. Hugs & Kisses won and The Black Knight was eliminated from the tournament.
