Emerald Knight, the robot from 2016 First Stronghold, was a versatile, unique bot that could maneuver it's way through all kinds of terrain. Its unique pneumatics propulsion drive allowed the robot to manipulate its height, and the special pistons attached to it made traversing rough land a breeze. It had the ability to cross 10 out of the 11 terrain types, only limited by it's height. Emeral Knight's custom printed intake allowed for accuracy and power when it came to launching boulders at the enemy team.
