Shadow Tyrant has 4 overlapping EMERGENCY wedges and the front armor actually consists of 6 overlapping ram plates.

Shadow Tyrant was a heavyweight popup built by Trovaner for BBEANS 5. ST is Trovaner's second attempt at BBEANS, with Dense2 for BBEANS 3. ST was notable for using EMERGENCY wedges, which are supposedly worse than the small wedge components, but gives the bot a wide coverage. It also traded battery power (it only runs on a single Supervolt) for a lot of frontal armor for defense against HSes, which it was able to prove its wins against the black plague and Death Dealer. But its use of EMERGENCY wedges ultimately backfired on Shadow Tyrant, as it lost to two wedgier popups, and was sent out of the tournament. Trovaner is ranked 37th in BBEANS standings.
