Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show
"They call it a dragon-class rapid offensive unit with wings...but it's vulnerable to knights in shining armour..."
— Jonathan Pearce
Chompalot was a competitor in Series 6 of Robot Wars. It was a box shaped robot designed to resemble a dragon. Chompalot's main weapon was a set of hydraulic powered pincers (or "jaws"), which were the largest of the Sixth Wars. Chompalot also featured two large wings for self-righting, a spike at the rear to protect the safety link and light-up eyes, intended to "strike fear into the opponents". Although it was eliminated in the first round of the main competition, it won the Iron Maidens competition in Extreme 2, defeating Behemoth and Pussycat along the way. The first version of Chompalot failed to qualify for Series 5, being beaten by Spirit of Knightmare, another robot that failed to qualify. Chompalot also failed to qualify for Series 7, after suffering from problems with its receiver crystal.
Chompalot pulled an unlucky draw in its only main series appearance, coming up against returning teams 13 Black, the 11th seeds Stinger and previous semi-finalist Thermidor 2. After the activate call, it rammed into 13 Black, bounced away, and collided with Thermidor 2. Chompalot chased the other robots around the arena, grabbing hold of 13 Black's roulette wheel and dragging it over the flame pit. Chompalot's weapon then caught hold of Stinger. In Chompalot's state of vulnerability, 13 Black came in from behind and tore into Chompalot with its discs, immobilising it. Chompalot was counted out, and after being twirled around by Sir Killalot, it was tossed across the arena by the floor flipper, and then pitted by Dead Metal.
"What's that? All women are old dragons? Shame on you!"

Chompalot's only appearance in Extreme was the Iron Maidens competition. Its first battle was against Pussycat and Spin Doctor. Chompalot began by clamping onto Spin Doctor and preventing it from spinning. It dragged Spin Doctor into Shunt's CPZ, while Pussycat took the opportunity to attack it from behind. Chompalot took a hit from Shunt's axe and Pussycat got an attack on Spin Doctor. Chompalot grabbed Spin Doctor again, and one of Spin Doctor's tyres fell off, rendering it immobile. In the semi-final, Behemoth flipped Chompalot, but Shunt drove out of the CPZ and righted it. The robots danced around each other until Behemoth mistakenly drove into the CPZ, where Chompalot swooped in and got ahold of Behemoth, and restrained it while Shunt axed Behemoth until its safety link fell out. Chompalot dragged Behemoth across the arena, hit the pit release button and dropped it into the pit of oblivion. In the final, Chompalot and Pussycat started out fairly evenly matched, trading blows. Chompalot skirted a CPZ and was rammed by Growler. Pussycat could not quite bring its weapon to bear and eventually Chompalot got a good hold of Pussycat, then hit the pit release, pushing Pussycat across the arena, and carefully dropping it into the descending pit to earn the title of Iron Maidens champion.
