Robot statistics correct as of its most recent competition
His first version looked similar, but was longer and thinner in shape, thus making it harder to turn, and his flipping arm's plate was ineffective.
Kite is a Lightweight flipperbot created by KodeBreaker of Team Covenant. He is somewhat similar to The Matador, but sports a kite-like shape, which is partially the reason for his name. Driven by 24v drill motors and 2 wheels near the front (not as much as The Matador, though. S5-Matador could hardly turn about), he is as manoeuvrable as it gets. The powerful flipping arm can flip around a tonne on the tip. The 6063 aluminium alloy exoskeleton and 2mm Grade 5 titanium armour provide some protection against heavy-duty weaponry.
Kite was a participant of the League of Robotic Excellence. While not making the play-offs, he was nearly able to break even. In Crazy Bots: New Breed City he made the semi-finals, but he forfeited his match against Deathstalker due to his creator dropping out.
Overall Record Edit
- Wins: 14
- Losses: 7
- Kite took the longest of the Team Covenant LoRE entrants to create, followed by Teresa.
- Name inspiration: Kite from the dot hack games. This couples with BlackRose who is also a dot hack-themed bot, and ironically the two are paired with each other. Commence puke.
- Theme: "Unsung" by industrial metal band Ministry.
- Even though Team Zlayerz changed its name to Team Covenant, Kite II was created before Crazy Bots: New Breed City began, so he still sports the old logo, which is based off of the logo from Mudvayne's album "The End of All Things To Come".
