It is a gray, two-wheeled, invertible, octagonal shaped robot armed with a 25 pound front steel thwacking wedge. Lionheart is also capable of adjusting the height of the wedge, giving it the ability to almost constantly have zero ground clearance.
Despite this Lionheart did poorly in competition. This was likely due to the fact that the robot, while updated properly, was running old fasteners for the wedge, and old casters. This caused problems with the wedge staying on in its fight against General, as well as giving it a larger ground clearance than it should have had.
RoboGames 2017EditLionheart's first match was against Sliver King. This match was dominated by Sliver King until Sliver King rammed Lionheart into the wall, and both bots got stuck. In a controversial move, the refs, and judges ruled that Sliver King had pinned Lionheart, and gave the win to Lionheart.
This put Lionheart in the next round where it faced General. This match started with Lionheart immediately charging at the disc of General, trying to stop it before it got up to speed. This however failed, and General popped it up into the air, but Lionheart landed right-side up.
Lionheart then got under General, but General got away, and delivered a hit that sent Lionheart flying, flipping it, and ripping off Lionhearts wedge. Before Lionheart could escape, General then charged it, and spun Lionheart out of the arena for the KO.
This put Lionheart in the loser's bracket where it faced NIGHTHAWK. This match started with NIGHTHAWK capitalizing on a driving error by Lionheart, and slamming it into the wall. It continued this tactic until time ran out, damaging the arena floor in the process, and won a 22-11 judges decision meaning Lionheart was eliminated from the competition.
