Furious George (More famously known as Death by Monkeys) was a Lightweight robot built by Team Death by Monkeys, and driven by Team Tentacle Combat Robotics that competed at the first LTRC event. It was a four-wheeled, black, invertible, box-shaped robot armed with four red lifting spikes. Furious George did not do well in competition, managing to win only one out of its three fights.
Furious George also competed in Battlebots, Steel Conflict, and RoboGames under the name Death by Monkeys where it had much more success. Its name was likely a pun on the TV/Movie franchise Curious George.

It won this match by KO, and moved on to the Round of 12 where it faced Snowcone. It lost by KO, and was eliminated from the competition.
