Lionheart was a Middleweight robot built by Team Toad that competed in four of the six Robot Club & Grille events. It was a gray, two-wheeled, invertible, octagonal shaped robot armed with a 25 pound front steel thwacking wedge. Lionheart was also capable of adjusting the height of the wedge, giving it the ability to almost constantly have zero ground clearance.
This served Lionheart well as it won two championships, and never failed to reach the Quarterfinals. After the Robot Club & Grille closed its doors, Lionheart continued competing until 2006 when it was retired. However the robot recently emerged from retirement, and competed in RoboGames 2017 where it went 1-2 due to issues with the wedge not being secured properly.
