The Turboencabulator is designed to charge the opponent from a favorable angle and lift them off the ground using the vertical roller network. Once the opponent is separated from the ground, the robot can easily expel the opponent from the stage. Ground clearance is high to account for the myriad of obstacles that could be placed upon the surface of the stage.
