The Battle Mech is a machine made by the long forgotten race of the Scifan. It resembles a Humanoid in the likes that it has two arms and legs. The Battle Mech has a single red eye that can see in darkness as well as light. On one arm, it holds a giant saw as tall as a human that spins really fast. On the other, The Battle Mech has three different high powered cannons. It’s chest houses the Battle Mech’s nuclear reactor, which keeps it running. The DM can decide if damage taken there does extra because if the vulnerable machine parts. As an action, the vent that leads to the reactor can open up, causing an unorthodox attack. The Battle Mech will only do this as a last resort attack, mainly using its cannons and saw for battle. The Battle Mech also has an on board shield system that regenerates every six seconds. The controls for the shield are housed in the head of the Battle Mech, right next to its processing chip.
The Battle Mech is designed for one think: combat. It's creator originally made it as a guardian for a temple in the sky, but went rogue when it misunderstood it's purpose of "defend the temple". The creators abandoned the temple, and to this day it continues to kill anything that moves, including other robots. The Battle Mech has very simple battle tactics: explode everything as fast as possible. The Mech has uncanny artificial intelligence, and can scan the battlefield for advantages in the surroundings, and can adapt moves in certain situations, like using it's foot to stomp someone right in front of it. It wouldn't normally use this move, but can if the situation is opportune attack.
