Robot statistics correct as of its most recent competition
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.
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 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.
A third version has now been designed...

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- 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".
