TriMangle was a superheavyweight robot built by Korey Kline for Team Loki that competed in the final three seasons of BattleBots. It was a four wheeled (two wheels in Season 5.0) black robot armed with an angled triangular spinning blade which was actuated so it could change its height. It performed acceptably in BattleBots, reaching the televised rounds in Season 4.0 and 5.0, but never went further than the round of 32.
Season 3.0EditTriMangle's first match of the season was Battle Scar. The match began with a direct hit from both bots and TriMangle's blade immobilized Battle Scar's spinning disc. The rest of the match was a pushing match and TriMangle won on a 27-18 judge's decision. This win put TriMangle to the final preliminary round, where it faced Hoobot.
The match was mostly a pushing match as Hoobot kept moving away from the spinning blade of TriMangle. Hoobot showed a lot more pushing power and the match ended in favor of Hoobot on a 27-18 judge's decision. This meant that TriMangle was eliminated from the tournament.
After receiving a bye in the final preliminary round, TriMangle went up against Hoobot again in the first TV round. At the start of the match, both robots rushed to the center of the BattleBox and TriMangle's spinning blade ripped a slot into Hoobot, disconnecting its battery and rendering HooBot motionless. Hoobot was counted out and TriMangle won by KO in 41 seconds. This win put TriMangle to the round of 32, where it faced the superheavyweight champion Vladiator.
At the start of the match, both robots headed for the center of the BattleBox and TriMangle knocked Vladiator to the side with the rotating triangle. This hit ripped off Vladiator's lifting spike and both bots were driving around the BattleBox. TriMangle suffered a lot of damage from the killsaws and towards the end of the match, TriMangle was rendered motionless. Vladiator drives over the rear of TriMangle and the time ran out soon after. Vladiator won on a 37-8 judge's decision and TriMangle was eliminated from the tournament again.
As of 2015, it is unknown if TriMangle participated the superheavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
Due to previously entering in Season 4.0, TriMangle was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 5.0, where it eventually fought Ogre. Ogre won the match by KO and TriMangle was eliminated from the tournament once again.
TriMangle couldn't compete in the superheavyweight consolation rumble because the rest of the rumbles were canceled due to an accident with Nightmare during the heavyweight consolation rumble.
