The Killer Robot Instability 20 - Killer Robot

M.O.N.T.E. was the "killer" robot built by Howard. M.O.N.T.E stands for Mobile Omnidirectional Neutralization and Termination Eradicator as an entry into the Southern California Robot Fighting League Round-Robin Invitational.

M.O.N.T.E. was a remote controlled device, which featured an articulated Circular Saw on the front, a Poly-carbonate Grinding and Flipping Wheel on the back, steel armor plating and exoskeleton, and enough horsepower to "drive 110 pounds of mechanized death from zero to 'holy crap' in 4.8 seconds". After an initial test run where it successfully destroyed a Toaster Oven with its Saw Blade and crashed through the door of the apartment, it was destroyed by the Kripke Krippler in a one-on-one "street fight". Howard was not around to help them with the robot challenge since Penny had criticized him and he retreated to his room avoiding human contact. Both robots made an appearance in "The Killer Robot Instability". Sheldon operated it in the match with Barry Kripke.



  • At the beginning of the "The Killer Robot Instability", M.O.N.T.E. is stated to weigh approximately 110lb (50kg). In real-life Robot Combat, this would put within in the Middleweight weight category.
