The team began building heavyweight robots in 2018, designing and constructing a two-wheel drive robot with a 60lb bar spinner. This later became Piranha, unrelated to the four-wheel drive Robot Ruckus competitor of the same name. After an unsuccessful 2020 season application, Wild Side Robotics later designed Dragon Slayer under a medieval theme. The team were advised by from Jonathan Schultz and Will Bales of Team HUGE and Team HyperShock respectively while building Dragon Slayer.

A brand new Dragon Slayer was entered into World Championship VII, but the team pulled out after only being accepted as an alternate.

With 15lber Horns of Fury, Jordan Neal competed in BattleBots: Metal Mayhem in March 2024.
