- "Everyone's in for the chop when they come across Crippler."
- — Philippa Forrester
In the next series, the team entered with the equally unsuccessful The Predator.
Crippler was a steel robot figure designed to look like a samurai with an overhead "executioner's" axe. It was one of the tallest robots in Series 3, and could swing its axe overhead, effective at the front and back of the machine. Crippler had additional weapons, including a rear ramp and a scoop on the front. Crippler ran on tracks that were fashioned from an old conveyor belt and industrial chains. Crippler's height came at the cost of the robot being top-heavy, and it cannot self-right. At the front of the robot was a message that read "Have a nice day".
- "The executioner's axe is razor sharp, but are Crippler's reactions?"
- — Jonathan Pearce
Crippler faced All Torque in its only battle, but was hit at the start, before being pushed into the arena wall. Crippler slowly brought down its axe down on All Torque, but caused no damage. Crippler was outclassed in power, and was pushed around before a great shove from All Torque ended with Crippler in the pit. The bout lasted a mere 29 seconds, and Crippler was eliminated in the first round.
