|Title|| The Peoples Champ,
The Junkyard Bot
BOT TYPE: Sparring
After Noisy Boy was destroyed, Charlie Kenton needed a new robot, so he and Max Kenton went to a junkard to salvage parts to create a new robot. After Max fell off a hill and got snagged on a robot arm, he discovered that it was an entire robot. Max used a hook connected to their cart to hoist up Atom out of the ditch. Later, Max cleaned off Atom to discover his name written on his chest. After lots of begging from Max, Charlie agreed to take Atom to The Zoo to fight. Max got Atom a fight with Metro, and after taking a pounding in the first round, Atom dodged his previous downfall, and with a quick double uppercut, Atom gave Metro a system malfunction, and won $2,000.
A bystander invited the two to a fight, and Atom went on a winning streak. After defeating robots such as Black Top, Six Shooter and more, they finally got invited to an official WRB fight with Twin Cities.
Atom won yet again, and Max challenged Zeus to a fight.
Atom is a beaten up chrome-colored sparring bot, small in comparison to other fighting bots. His face is featureless and mesh covered much like a fencing mask save for a few tears and scratches and blue lights that resemble eyes when he is powered on. He has a Six-Pack. He has brown hands that look like boxing gloves, and a brown headband which slightly resembles a sparring mask. His hands have thumbs that can move on their own which was shown when Atom gripped the ropes of the ring to stop falling down in the 4th round against Zeus. He has a chip on his back too.
Charlie Kenton trained Atom to use his small size to his advantage by punching up and using inertia to create more force. His main form of attacks are right hooks and an upper-cut finisher. However, he has weaknesses, due to his fighting set being pre-programed moves, they can be easily intercepted due to the fact that they can't change, but his shadow boxing feature and the ability to create new combo's via basic commands can compensate for said weaknesses. He fights his oppenents by finding and attacking weaknesses and openings until they close, he then (if needed) starts this again.
