Billy-Bob Beard was an unusual shaped robot armed with four flippers, two firing out of the left and right sides of the beard, while two front flippers combined at the front of the beard. Billy-Bob Beard was favourite in its heat and was successful at getting to the second round of the Grand Final of Banter Wars series 1, finishing third place overall, having lost to the eventual champion.

The untested Beard 2 competed in the Sumo event of Banter Wars Series 2, featuring a larger beard, and a single front flipper. However, it had poor mobility, and was easily defeated by Poshington's Prized Box.

Beard 2

Beard 2, from Series 2's Sumo

Beard 2 competed in the Sumo, where it faced Poshington's Prized Box. However, its lack of testing quickly proved to be a flaw, as it struggled to drive forwards.
