Tetanus was a Middleweight robot built by Team T.A.R.S. that competed at the first BattleBots IQ competition. It was a silver, four wheeled box shaped robot armed with a spinning bar. However it suffered issues with the drivetrain being overpowered, and the spinner being under-powered. Despite these design flaws Tetanus managed to perform reasonably well, reaching the round of 32 where it had its only known fight against Wee Willy Wedgy.
Not much is known about how Tetanus performed in its only competition, what is known is that it eventually made its way to the round of 32 where it faced Wee Willy Wedgy. It lost this fight, and was sent to the loser's bracket, it is unknown whom it faced there or even if it won. Regardless Tetanus was eventually eliminated from the tournament, and as of 2016 it is unknown if Tetanus competed in the consolation rumble at the end of the competition.
