Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show

The Cap'n's Merry Ship was a ship-shaped robot armed with four axes, two on each side (Cap'n Crapbeard was originally considering cannons, but weapons with projectiles weren't allowed in Banter Wars). The robot fought in Series 1 of Banter Wars and was a favorite for the heat it was in, it got to the Heat Final. At the end of the series, The Cap'n's Merry Ship won the "Prime Minister's Pick" award, because it was Prime Minister Adam's favorite robot due to the unique design and effort put in making it. Unlike almost all of the competitors in Series 1, The Cap'n's Merry Ship had a srimech, which it could use its largest mast in the middle and axes to self right when it was toppled on its side, as demonstrated in its Heat Final battle against Wizard of Banter. Cap'n Crapbeard also qualified in the same heat with the much less successful Jolly Roger, which lost in the eliminators. After Series 1 The Cap'n's Merry Ship became a flipper and piston spike called the Cap'n's Treasure

Robot History Edit

In the first round eliminator, it fought Wizard of Banter and Polly. In the battle The Cap'n's Merry Ship stayed in the corner and assisted in killing Polly by using its axes. After Polly was knocked out, The Cap'n's Merry Ship and Wizard of Banter continued to fight despite already qualifying for the second round

First Mate Diggle is pitted

In Round Two, it fought First Mate Diggle. The Cap'n's Merry Ship sluggishly came forward while First Mate Diggle came smashing into The Cap'n's Merry Ship, attacking it with its claw. The Cap'n's Merry Ship uses its side axes and caused severe damage to First Mate Diggle who eventually starts smoking. The Cap'n's Merry Ship almost knocks First Mate Diggle out but instead it presses the pit release and then proceeds to pit it.

The Cap'N's Merry Ship is knock out

In the Heat Final, it fought Wizard of Banter again. Wizard of Banter comes straight in and chucks The Cap'n's Merry Ship onto its side, but only for The Cap'n's Merry Ship to self right. The Cap'n's Merry Ship fights back, causing big damage to the top of Wizard of Banter. The Cap'n's Merry Ship is thrown over on its side once again, this time onto the drop zone. It self rights again but is hit by a washing machine, causing heavy damage and part of the srimech mast to break off. The heavily damaged robots duel one another with no sight of a clear winner, until Wizard of Banter destroys one of the axes and eventually hits it so hard that Cap'n's Merry Ship is knocked immobile and out of the competition.
