Name: Gridlock

Title: The Bronzed Bodybuilder Bot

Generation: 3

Bot Type: Lightning Bruiser

Status: Offline/Destroyed


Gridlock is seen in the movie where he got his fight with Zeus. He managed to punch Zeus, which makes him the first robot to ever land a blow on Zeus (Atom being the second), but they were weak blows, which Zeus counters, with his nuke fists on Gridlock's head which flattened his head and destroyed his system. Despite this, he came back to the Real Steel games. First in a RS iOS update on 2012, where he was introduced with a trailer of him beating Midas, and then as a fightable opponent and buyable robot in RS WRB.

Gridlock 004

Gridlock is almost completely bronze, with gold attributes along with blue tints for the hands. On his face, his mouth seems to be a bit weird. His whole body is not fully covered, allowing you to see his chassis and the light of the Blue Cyanide Core in his chest. Gridlock is pretty large for a WRB 'bot. In a news report at the StarFire Arena (which he got Nuke Fisted by Zeus), he is almost as tall as Zeus himself. In general, he's pretty similar to Ambush, since his face, forearms and lower legs are quite similar, which could mean that Gridlock and Ambush are somehow related, but it's still unconfirmed. Gridlock also has an Earth in the middle of the chest, which for some reason is lit in yellow instead of blue, although his eyes are lit in blue.


  • He was the very first bot who managed to hit Zeus, but it was one weak right cross before Zeus nuke-fisted him. He was about to land a left cross but was interrupted.
  • In the iOS game Real Steel World Robot Boxing, Gridlock's card says he's from Italy but the announcer says he's from Switzerland.
  • There is a similar error in the Real Steel iOS game shop description, but it says Gridlock is from Switzerland.
  • He is flat footed.
  • He has a Gold variation in the iOS game, Gridlock Gold. Due to Gridlock already being gold, this gold variation has a darker golden suit with some dark-red spots.
  • In his concept art, his name was originally Atlas.
  • After an update in Real Steel WRB, the camera for his special and win messed up
