Original Sin

Original Sin is a Heavyweight robot that was built by Team Late Night Racing for RoboGames 2006. It is a four-wheeled wedge robot, with no active weapons. Despite this lack of an active weapon it is the most successful robot in RoboGames history, owing to the skills of its driver Gary Gin. This driving skill led Original Sin to five RoboGames gold medals, three ComBots gold medals, two RoboGames silver medals, three ComBots silver medals, as well as one ComBots bronze model.

Original Sin flips Ragin Scotsman

Original Sin flips Ragin Scotsman.

After receiving a bye in the first round, Original Sin's first opponent was long-time rivals Ragin Scotsman. This match started with both bots driving out of their squares, Original Sin got under Ragin Scotsman, and the inertia flipped Ragin Scotsman upside-down.

Ragin Scotsman then deployed its flamethrower, but Original Sin slammed it into the corner. Ragin Scotsman attempted to get away, but Original Sin continued to slam it around until time ran out, at one point even causing a floor panel that had been damaged by Stewart earlier in the competition to pop back up.

The judges unsurprisingly ruled the match 20-13 in favor of Original Sin, this put it in the quarterfinals where it faced Megabyte. this match started with Megabyte spinning up to speed as Original Sin slowly approached. Original Sin then lightly tapped Megabyte causing it to become unbalanced before slamming into it sending both robots careening into opposite walls. Original Sin then slammed Megabyte again as it tried to spin up, this caused Megabyte to rebound into the wall where it started emitting smoke.

"Oh god, 4/20 was yesterday. Puff-puff pass."
— Scott Robinson

This turned out to be from the weapon motor, as everytime Megabyte spun up, more smoke would come out, seriously reducing visibility in the arena. Without a fully functional weapon, Megabyte was easily shoved around by Original Sin for theremainder of the match. To make matters worse, with less than 1:30 on the clock Megabyte lost its weapon belt meaning that it now could not spin up at all. Original Sin then shovedit around until time ran out, unsurprisingly the judges ruled the match in favor of Original Sin, putting it through to the Semi-Finals where it faced Whoops!.
