The Jouster was a Middleweight robot that competed at the final three RCG events. It was a silver,invertable, four-wheeled, box-shaped robot with red striping, and armed with a lifting lance.

Despite never failing to place in the top 4 of all RCG events it attended, and placing second in RCG-304 The Jouster ultimaely performed poorly, losing more fights than it won.

Robot HistoryEdit


As only four robots were registered in the Middleweight division, The Jouster entered its first event with a 100% chance of getting at least fourth place. It's first match was against Mjr. Punishment. It lost this match by a judges decision, and was sent to the loser's final where it faced Jersey Devil. It lost this fight on another judges decision, and finished in fourth place.


After getting a bye in the semi-finals The Jouster's first match was against rookie vertical bar spinner MoZar. It won this fight on a judges decision, and faced the devastating bar spinner of Hworf. It lost this fight by KO, and faced MoZar again, this time beating it by knockout. This meant that Jouster was now in the final where it faced Hworf. However once again it lost by KO meaning that it was the Middleweight runner-up of RCG-304.


The Jouster slams Secret Weapon

The Jouster's first match in RCG-305 was against RCG newcomer Secret Weapon, this match started with both robots charging at each other. Secret Weapon got the better of the exchange, popping The Jouster onto two wheels, however The Jouster careened off into the wall, turned around, and slammed Secret Weapon into the wall.

By this point it became clear that Secret Weapon was having drive issues as it was barely moving, The Jouster then backed off, and slammed Secret Weapon into the corner. After a few more slams Secret Weapon stopped moving altogether, and was counted giving The Jouster its first KO at the Club & Grille, and putting it into the Semi-Finals where it faced Hworf.

The Jouster loses its wheel.

For this match Team FishNecks had attached disassembled milk crate pieces to the sides of their robot to attempt to keep away the devastating spinner of Hworf. However, as soon as the match started Hworf shoved The jouster into the corner, and ripped off two of the crate pieces. Hworf then repeated this at the other corner before The Jouster drove away, but Hworf gave chase, chewing away at Jouster as it did.

After a while of this, Hworf got to the rear left Colson on The Jouster, peeling it back like an orange, and leaving it with only three wheels. Jouster then drove away, and the wheel, destroyed by Hworf shot out the back of The Jouster. Hworf then chased down The Jouster, and ripped more parts, and milk crate pieces off of it until time ran out. Unsurprisingly The Jouster lost this match on a unanimous decision putting it in the loser's bracket where it faced rookie AKA Trouble.
