It's a Trope, and also the reason I decided to try this. This started out as a nice little racer mech, then evolved into the Killer of Men you see before you. Odd, huh? Also, it's literally called the Monowheel Mayhem. A group of them once attacked a Human base, and the commander referred to the incident as '...A bloody mess filled with monowheeled mayhem...' The name stuck, and I find it amusing.
About this creation
Final Score: 16/20

Well, in case you hadn't guessed (And you probably haven't. Let's be honest, you really shouldn't have been able to guess from that introduction.), this is my entry for the Exoforce Mech category in the 2010 Mech Contest. Stick around for my nonsensical ravings so I can explain my reasoning behind the design.

First off, I wanted to build a Monowheel Mech. It's just an odd ball choice of design, and I am the contest oddball so far (I have yet to build a single mech involving a 'standard' minifig as a pilot), and one that is 'refreshing'.
Hey Everyone! You like?

Because it's such a different design pattern, it ends up looking alien or non-human. What better for Omnicidal Robots? Also, bizarre designs are a common feature of Anime Bad Guys. Because Exoforce was clearly designed as 'Anime-esque', I thought a more out-of-left-field design choice would fit in nicely.
I really wanted to build another Pirate Mech, and look what came out.

Now, some of you may be thinking 'But they had Spider Mechs! Spiders are some scary stuff, man!'. Well, I'll go ahead and admit that spiders ARE scary, and are a common element of 'WTH is this?' designs. I'll then go ahead to say they're also boring. And overdone. And I built a few for this very contest. Which is why a change was needed!
It's not that I don't like it, it's just it's nowhere near Pirate-esque.

And now we get to the fun part! The side with the Gauss Cannon.
Speaking of Pirates, Deadpool as a Pirate is the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life.

The Gauss Cannon is pretty clearly stolen from the Necrons of 40k. It's also a perfect fit. They're both intent on wiping out humanity, they're both robots, and both of them tend to be on the shinier side. Which is why I stole it.
But, that tends to happen alot around Deadpool...

As far as I know, the leg/calf portion is my idea. It also makes use of my beloved telephones again. I do love those telephones...
Say, anyone got any comic recommendations? I've read some of Alan Moore's stuff, and I'm not sure where to go next.

And here we see our pilot, whose only goal in life is to destroy you, your family, your pets, and then your waffles. But most importantly the waffles.
I'm thinking Batman.

If you hear a sort of whining sound at the moment, the Cannon is charging. If you can't tell, listen for something that sounds like the screeching of the damned combined with nails being scratched across a chalk board, mix in a healthy dose of tearing metal, add in the tearing of cloth, and then subtract all of that and imagine a plane getting ready for takeoff, and you've pretty much got it.Or, more Deadpool. May as well buy out the rest, y'know?

And here we see it in action. Notice that it fires a single energy slug. The 'tail' is merely energy that has detached itself from the slug, sort of like a tracer round.
Wow, I'm almost out of photos and I've done nothing but talk about Super Heroes...

This was taken two hours and twenty six minutes after the action shot. Those troopers who were nearly killed found a Missile Launcher laying about, as per the Video Game Theory of Weapons Availability, despite them being in 'Real Life'. There was much rejoicing, and a paper on the plausibility of the aforementioned theory was planned.
Well, anyone seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show?

One minute and thirty seven seconds later, the tables have turned as they seem to have forgotten that a robot cannot bleed out in the way a person does. It's quite happy to kill them without it's legs, but that's something they've already found out.
I recently did thanks to Leda Kat and her Mocky Horror Show, and now the songs haunt me day and night... DAY AND NIGHT...

And now it's time for you all to get off my Robo-Grass. Seriously, it's robo grass guys. Do you have any idea how much it costs to have Robo-Grass installed? Sheesh, you'd think I was made of money.

I've only seen one or two others. Strangely enough, they're not a common design.

Or if they've decided to violate all known laws of biology, because they feel rebellious. I mean, if they're made of bread they can't possibly have eyes. Therefore, I vote for them to be reclassified, as an entirely new species in an entirely new order: Order Wafflia.

yes I am, unless they have radial symmetry.

@Mr. Rahkshi: Thank you, I find it's always good to throw a wrench into the norm every so often. Especially in contests. Judging the same type of mech with a different exterior would drive me crazy. Well, crazier... @Joe: Huh, that's odd. Well, now I suppose you're going to support his logic.

I like the unorthodox and unique build, after all the bipedal mechs in this contest. 4 points.

*sigh* Someone always has to bring logic into it...

Might I remind you that waffles are made of bread, and only have a mind. They have no nerves that distribute pain. They do, however, have little eyes all over themselves, so they can see continuously. Proves my point.

Thank you! And the pun gets you extra appreciation. I do love puns...

Quoting Ribbits M. I'm pretty sure the Raptors will get the waffles before the waffles get us.
Or will they... Good thing waffles cannot feel physical pain.

@Waffles: Because they can't get Deadpool's pancakes. I'm pretty sure the Raptors will get the waffles before the waffles get us. Then the Raptors will proceed to get us. I'm glad the unnecessary persecution of waffles hasn't stopped you from enjoying the build though! @Mech Man: He's gonna need reinforcements then... @Aiden: Sure thing! @Master Shifu: Well, nothing's hard to drive when you're a robot. All you have to do is get a nifty little program installed, and you're an ace. @Moodswim: Thanks, it's been fun doing it! Especially the commentary part. I really love doing commentary...

I am considering not commenting on this moc. Why the waffles, ribbits, why the waffles? You know they will start an uprising... =P Great job on this mech, another great contest entry. That raptor guy is pretty legit too. Too bad he is going to be annihilated by the waffles in the dark of the night. ~Waff
