  1. Diotoir never really liked flippers, just ask Spawn Again and Wheely Big Cheese. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Oh, what? Come on now No contest here, as Scraptosaur will win with a flip of doom. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:50, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

  4. Sorry Diotoir, but this will probably go the same way as your fight against Spawn Again. Raz3r(talk) 12:21, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. A sorry end for the Irish furball here. Scraptosaur to chuck Diotoir around the arena before leaving it on its back over the Flame Pit. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. I make no apologies for expressing my relief that the Series 5 Diotoir is going out. It'll be flicked over pretty quickly. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Shame to lose Diotoir so early, but it's fighting a flipper. Its history against flippers speaks for itself. CrashBash (talk) 16:38, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Only Diotoir could beat Tornado but lose to Scraptosaur. Very much the QPR of Robot Wars! Hogwild94 (talk) 18:40, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Boooo. Scraptosaur the killjoys of Ragnabot. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I'm with Nick, it always bothered me that we couldnt use the most recent version of Diotoir, even though I understand the reasoning, so I'm extremely hopeful that the new series will give us a new Diotoir to judge. For now, one of my favourites (also like Nick) will be sailing through, and that robot is Scraptosaur 03. ToastUltimatum 01:01, November 21, 2016 (UTC)

The Termite vs Bamm BammEdit

The Termite Bamm Bamm
Bamm bamm
Votes for The Termite Votes for Bamm Bamm
  1. Bamm Bamm got one of the worst draws in Series 7, as anyone in a melee with Firstorm without a srimech is going to be destroyed easily. But, hiding under that quick battle was a good robot who'd had a good run in the Dutch wars, that has the possibility to dispose of The Termite. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. To me, The Termite's wheels are not only exposed, but should prove easy pickings for Bamm Bamm's axe here. Eventually, I can just see Bamm Bamm eventually pitting The Termite and progress to the next round. By the way, is noting The Termite's poor battery a notable factor for deciding its battles? Normally if it happened once I would let it go, but it happened twice oddly enough. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Smack, bang, wallop, on the top of Termite's body and maybe puncture a tire.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:11, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. You know, there used to be someone at my primary school nicknamed Bamm Bamm. Bamm Bamm has this in the bag as The Termite doesn't really offer anything in terms of offense or defense, while the other machine has an axe which may not be all that damaging but will score lots of aggression points. Raz3r(talk) 12:24, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. The Termite’s wheels and weapons proved exceptionally fragile, and it always seemed to run out of battery power when the battle lasted for more than a minute. Bamm Bamm can easily use its axe to punch the top of The Termite and damage the wheels and weapons, and to outlast The Termite should it go to a judges’ decision. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. A nice amount of surface area for Bamm Bamm to hit. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. There's a lot Bamm Bamm can do, and The Termite always seemed to run out of juice much too early. CrashBash (talk) 16:39, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Bamm Bamm was so unlucky in S7; a Dutch Wars finalist can easily be a low key US entrant. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:41, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Nothing to add really. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I think this will be more even than suggested, Bamm Bamm was extremely complete-fluke-level lucky to earn their first third place, and their second honour was just blatantly undeserved. The Termite is nippier, and is more likely to bring its weapon into effect, but ultimately Bamm Bamm has a huge weight advantage that will work in its favour when pushing.

Splinter vs TechnophobicEdit

Splinter Technophobic
Votes for Splinter
  1. Technophobic was one of those robots I developed a soft spot for after Series 2. It was good fun and seemed to do the job against it's opponents. That said, it lost to Killertron, who have a worse axe than Splinter, and Pitbull, which wasn't as good at pushing as Splinter was. Add them up and you can see where this is going. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Splinter was more than capable of pushing opponents around, into various hazards like the pit and the CPZ. Technophobic was OK for its time, but it has one big issue; it has a petrol engine, which as proven against Pitbull, was exposed to the elements, allowing the fire pit to ruin it. Splinter should be able to push Technophobic into one of these flame pits. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:50, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Splinter will shunt Technophobic around and use the axe to damage the fragile armour.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:12, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Splinter was not a bad machine; it took good robots to beat it. Technophobic isn't even close to being a good robot. Raz3r(talk) 12:25, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Everyone knows that fibreglass and axes do not mix in the arena. Splinter to hack away at Technophobic’s shell before dragging it across the Flame Pit to set its petrol engine on fire… VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Splinter can control fights against most types of robots and weapons - something it'll continue to show here. It'll also do damage. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I feel Splinter, in general, is quite underrated. Its weapons weren't the most damaging, maybe, but that wasn't the point. It specialised in control, which I think it showcased very well in the annihilator all the way until its knockout. It managed to control Pussycat and Hypno-Disc, which are both in a completely different league to Technophobic. CrashBash (talk) 16:41, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  8. I do rate Technophobic, but Splinter has two years extra engineering experience gone into it, so its weapons can easily win out here. Technophobic's only hope is to get a killer flip, and I feel its lifter is too narrow to do so. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:43, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Splinter was a competent Series 5 contender and maaaaaybe could have been a semi-finalist with a kind draw (although that's maybe going a bit far). Technophobic was decent for the time, but is outclassed here. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I remember the days when I'd run my own Ragnabots and go completely overboard with unnecessary entrants - I had two Technophobics! ToastUltimatum 01:01, November 21, 2016 (UTC)

  2. The best loanerbot on Robot Wars, eh? To be honest, it may have some trouble pushing Rattus Rattus around, but eventually I can see Tut Tut either using its axe to cause some notable damage to its opponent's armour, or simply push it onto a flame pit. Either way, Tut Tut should cause Rattus Rattus to be pitted. Speaking of the two robots, I like how they both repeat their first names and are both battling each other here. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. First Diotoir now Rattus Rattus! NO I refuse to vote against it, but I have to, a fantastic rambot from Series 3 with the best name ever now out of the competition :(. Tut Tut better do well or else!Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:15, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. We're full of robots with repetitive names in this heat, aren't we? Tut Tut's axe could cause some damage to Rattus Rattus, and I can't see the Series 3 machine really doing much here. Raz3r(talk) 12:28, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. For a novelty design, Rattus Rattus showed some impressive speed and pushing power during its battle against S.M.I.D.S.Y. However, its gaping ground clearance will allow Tut Tut to get under it before using its axe to damage and dislodge the rat’s bodyshell. Expecting Rattus Rattus to be eventually exterminated once Tut Tut dumps it into the pit. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Rattus Rattus will take too much damage for its potential pushes to matter. It'll struggle to fully force Tut Tut around consistently enough anyhow. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I'd honestly be more supportive of Rattus Rattus were it not for the fact its shell just popped off and collapsed in its battle against S.M.I.D.S.Y.. That one little flap on top of one side of its pyramid notwithstanding, at least Tut Tut was solid. Plus, it has the far superior weapon, being modified and all. CrashBash (talk) 16:43, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Powerful axe vs armour that came away after a very modest slam from Dead Metal. Yeah... Hogwild94 (talk) 18:44, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Tut Tut to to axe axe Rattus Rattus to to death death. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I concede that it would've been nice for Rattus Rattus to find a better draw within this reasonably weak heat, but I don't think there are any other repetitive names left in the competition besides today's three, so at least there's the novelty aspect.

  2. Here is the thing: Basenji's wheels fell off against Darkness after a couple of slams, of which the team claims sheared bolts of the wheels. Although Disc-O-Inferno did not tank slams much, it should be able to remove at least two of the wheels of its opponent. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

Ripper vs Bunny AttackEdit

Ripper Bunny Attack
Votes for Ripper
  1. Ripper doesn't hang about. Rather than playing with it's food, Ripper just gets the victory out the way ASAP. Ripper is the kind of robot that would just false-link you to a Rickroll, rather than cleverly editing it in halfway through a video. Be like Ripper, go an Rickrool your friends. Wait, no don't, just win battles against Rabbits easily. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I doubt Bunny Attack can self-right, and even if it can, that high ground clearance to me is just too vulnerable to avoid Ripper's flipper. A couple of flips will be enough to take Bunny Attack out. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Flip and flip and flip and flip.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:17, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Ripper was a fantastic flipper and is another example of a machine in Series 7 that would have gone further if it had had a nicer draw. I also want to say thanks for bringing up Ripper, as I had been thinking for weeks that there was a robot I really liked and should go in my Top 20 Favourite Robots but couldn't quite think of, and this reminded me that it was Ripper. Potential dark horse in this competition, Bunny Attack is sent back to its hole. Raz3r(talk) 12:31, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Bunny Attack’s gaping ground clearance makes it easy pickings for Ripper to scoop up and throw over almost instantly. Expecting the bunny to be chucked over the flames and into the pit. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Bunny Attack will be thrown over straight away. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. If I remember correctly, last time Bunny Attack had to fight Behemoth in its first battle. Now it has to fight Ripper. It can't catch a break. CrashBash (talk) 16:46, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

Demolition Demon vs VercingetorixEdit

Vercengetorix RWS3
Votes for Demolition Demon
  1. This is tough actually, DD is low and wedgey, but Vercey looks like the right shape to avoid it. That said, Vercey was outpushed by Terrorpin, so DD should definitely be able to get the shove it needs at one point. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I agree that Vercingetorix and Comengetorix were too similar, although part of me thinks the best way around it is just to kick out Vercingetorix altogether. This version was particularly slow, and never won a battle, so I honestly think Demolition Demon can win just by making the approach, glancing with the saw, and not be plagued by the intermittency problem shared by the Ngetorixes. ToastUltimatum 01:01, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Im floored that Vercingetorix is winning by such a margin, clearly few people have seen Heat A of series 2 recently. Demolition Demon pushed Victor and skittles around with ease and that's a lot more than Vercingetorix ever did. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 02:42, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
    Clearly we have seen Heat A of Series 2 recently. Victor had a very high ground clearance, which Vercingetorix did not have, and skittles can't fight back, so that's meaningless. Vercingetorix, meanwhile, was actually winning its fight with Terrorpin until halfway through and managed to survive against Dead Metal in the sumo. CrashBash (talk) 08:07, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
    Vercingetorix was absolutely not winning against Terrorpin. I watched that fight only yesterday. The reason I mention skittles and Victor is as proof that DD has strong pushing power and Vercey doesn't (again see Terrorpin) Toon Ganondorf (t c) 10:52, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
    Well, yes, it was, or at the very least they were even. But your argument still doesn't work. Victor had a stupidly high ground clearance, which Vercingetorix does not have, and skittles cannot push back, which Vercingetorix ideally should do. Neither are comparable. You know how come users get called out for trying to say stuff like "it can break this robot's armour because it broke apart a concrete slab"? Yeah, well, this is the same thing. You're comparing Vercingetorix to a static lightweight metal barrel, that you and I could probably lift. It doesn't work like that. CrashBash (talk) 11:08, November 21, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Vercingetorix
  1. Well, I do get the idea of voting Demolition Demon over Vercingetorix due to the Terrorpin battle, but I should note that Vercingetorix was pushed by the sides rather than the front, so was at a disadvantage anyway. Also, Demolition Demon's ground clearance was much higher than Terrorpin's, so I suspect the lifter of Vercingetorix should be able to topple it over. Even if it cannot, Vercingetorix should win a pushing battle. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I think Vercingetorix can win the pushing competition by getting a head on attack.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:18, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Both robots have effective wedges that were easily able to get underneath their opponents, while Demolition Demon had decent pushing power that would allow it to easily push Vercingetorix from the side. However, it has a high ground clearance which Vercingetorix will be keen to exploit using its lifter, and I can see Vercingetorix carrying Demolition Demon to the pit a la Panic Attack. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Wow, this will be an underwhelming fight. I can't trust Demolition Demon to get at the sides like Terrorpin - it just doesn't have the agility. I can see both robots really struggling to force each other back, and Vercingetorix engaging its weapon will be seen as enough to win a judges' decision. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. I'm going to throw this out here right now. I just don't trust Demolition Demon's ground clearance. Still, if anything, it's probably just as well it's only fighting this version of Vercingetorix. CrashBash (talk) 16:48, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Good fight this. Can see the argument either way, but I feel Vercingetorix was unlucky to draw and lose to Terrorpin, so I feel it can flip and win this one. Its armour doesn't seem the sort to be shredded by a modest cutting disc. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:47, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Feel that Vercingetorix is lower and better equipped to win a pushing match. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
Winner: Vercingetorix (3-7)

Comment: Hold the phone. Why are we using this version of Vercingetorix. I get that Comengetorix is basically the same but this feels like a massive disadvantage to this robot, unlike using Panic Attack Ex 2, which gains Kim Davies driver. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 11:30, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

I made it clear at the start I wanted to use this version. Because Comengetorix is basically the same robot (as you say), it means we can use this version of Vercey. Jimlaad43(talk) 12:30, November 20, 2016 (UTC)

Banshee Conquering Clown 2
Votes for Banshee Votes for Conquering Clown 2
  1. Both of these robots were fully in the spirit of the show. Colourful, large and great things to point Camera's towards, but also with some thought put into fighting. It's why robots such as Diotoir, Robochicken and Ruf Ruf Dougal (oh, just me?) were loved so much, because they brought fun to the Arena while still being able to deliver the action you wanted. In this matchup, I can see the shredder of CC2 causing some gashes in the side of Banshee, before Shunt axes both heads off. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:45, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Banshee had a notable problem and that problem was it being top-heavy. The thing about Conquering Clown 2's disc is that it seemed more than capable of not only causing some decent damage, but potentially knock opponents about. Eventually, I can see a blow from that disc being enough to overturn Banshee. Its team will have to rely on Shark Attack now. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:06, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Certainly the better of the comical entries. CC is faster and deadlier than Banshee.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:20, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  4. CC2 was actually alright in its first fight, whereas Banshee was not. Both great competitors, but sadly Banshee has to be eliminated as it will not cause any damage at all to CC2. More likely to damage itself. Raz3r(talk) 12:33, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Everyone rags on Paul Bunyan for 230rpm but Banshee only span at 200. No threat there whatsoever, Conquering Clown can do what it likes with them. RelicRaider (talk) 12:40, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  6. If there’s one area in the scoring criteria that both robots will score equal on if it goes to the judges, it'll be comedy value. Needless to say, Conquering Clown will take this one, as it has the speed to push and outmanoeuvre Banshee across the arena and the spinner to cause some gashes in its fibreglass rim. What are the chances of Jonathan Pearce failing to spot this while he laughs uncontrollably in the commentator’s booth? VulcansHowl (talk) 13:00, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Gashes galore, before Banshee is wrecked further by the House Robots. Nweston8 (talk) 13:52, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  8. OK, I'm predicting that Conquering Clown causes some serious gashes in Banshee's body, causing it to eventually break down, before both robots have their heads destroyed by the House Robots, whereupon Jonathan Pearce has an utter breakdown of hysterics. Come on, we ALL know that's going to happen. CrashBash (talk) 16:50, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Banshee just isn't on a par with Typhoon 2, so Conquering Clown's blade can easily see it to victory here. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:48, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  10. Conquering Clown 2 was a competent joke competitor, Banshee less so. Combatwombat555 (talk) 19:37, November 20, 2016 (UTC)
  11. In all fairness Relic, at least Banshee can spin its wheels on the spot to try and generate an extra 30rpm. ToastUltimatum 01:01, November 21, 2016 (UTC)

Votes for Shogun Votes for Leighviathan
  1. It's nice to see two early robots face each other, and not get chucked out by default after facing a first round dropout from Series 6. These two weren't fantastic, but Shogun were not suited to fighting as much as Leighviathan was, and the scoop will dominate. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Shogun stands out as pretty much the only robot from the very first episode of Robot Wars that didn't stand out. That's a contradiction in terms, but whatever. Leighviathan has a shovel, and by early RW standards, that should be enough to give it all the aggression it needs. Certainly Shogun's slow speed and tiny lifting forks won't help it. CrashBash (talk) 08:33, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Shogun is notable for being involved in the first battle that happened to have a Gentleman's Agreement of sorts, when it was fighting against Killertron, so it may be possible that this battle will not be as exciting as a result. I agree with CrashBash on this battle, with Leighviathan's shovel being enough to win a pushing battle. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:18, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Shoved around and could be toppled if pushed into a House Robot.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 09:50, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Im still appalled by Leighbot's controversial exit so I'll throw in a vote of approval for Leighviathan. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 10:17, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Voting a robot through due to the treatment of a different robot is against the spirit and rules of the arena. You'll have to rephrase that into a proper vote for Leighviathan. Jimlaad43(talk) 15:19, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Its a fair call Jim after all I made the rule so I should be bound. In 10-0 votes I tend not to vote unless I have something to say. Let's put it this way - I'm glad one of the Leigh machines gets to win because Shogun can do nothing. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 19:59, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Thank You :) Jimlaad43(talk) 21:50, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Honestly, Shogun’s performance in its fight against Killertron was shambolic – deliberately driving away from Killertron and onto the grille suggested anything but aggression or honour worthy of its name. Leighviathan will make short work of Shogun with the scoop and drive power. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:49, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Leighviathan is plenty good enough to overpower Shogun. It really wasn't a bad robot at all for Series 2. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. I don't think TG has to chuck in a reason, Jimlaad, considering this is a unanimous vote in favour of a better robot. ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Leighviathan was unfortunate to face Mace in its Series 2 heat as it could have done quite well against a lot of other machines in the Second Wars. Against Shogun, they won't have too many problems , especially with being able to use their enormous 0.2kg advantage over Shogun and their fifth wheel to shove Shogun around. Raz3r(talk) 16:51, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  10. Leighviathan's the more competent pusher, Shogun's tiny lifters and glancing spikes will do very little here. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  1. How many seconds before Tomahawk leaves the Arena? 26. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Currently in the middle of my Series 7 ranking, and I have a feeling Tsunami will be ranked pretty high for its heat. Tomahawk, meanwhile, ended up quite low. I don't think it'll have an answer here. CrashBash (talk) 08:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Tsunami may have the power to flip robots OotA in the 2016 Arena, but with fewer areas, it may struggle to flip in the right places. Regardless though, Tsunami should dominate, as I believe that Tomahawk will not survive the flips in one piece. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:18, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  6. This'll be a complete exhibition ala Constrictor. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Tomahawk is an awkward robot, it was unreliable in Series 7, and it's stayed unreliable for the past 12 years. I hope the Dutch Robot Girls are fixing that. ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. This wave will be rolling further than the older one. Tsunami and Gravity are probably the only 2 pre-2016 robots who won't need to put in effort for a flip OotA. Raz3r(talk) 16:53, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Yeah, let's go for an OotA. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

Silver Box vs GyrobotEdit

Silver Box Gyrobot
Votes for Silver Box Votes for Gyrobot
  1. Gyrobot to shred the wheels off Silver Box. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Y'know, looking back at its heat, I'd personally argue Gyrobot was one of the stronger robots present, with the absence of Terrorhurtz and all. It was just unfortunate to be placed against the only robot stronger than it, and even then it did apparantly cause some damage to Grim Reaper. Meanwhile, Silver Box's wheels look pretty exposed. CrashBash (talk) 08:36, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Gyrobot I believe should have been in Series 6 after that qualifer, it was unlucky it suffered near the end. Anyhow, its disc should be able to ruin Silver Box considerably. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:18, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Gyrobot will take out a wheel and cause some extra damage to make sure Silver Box stays dead.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:02, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  5. It’s a pity we don’t have much footage of Silver Box in action before its conversion to Zanzara, but given how Zanzara fared against spinners in the Nickelodeon Tag Team, it’s in major trouble here. Gyrobot will tear Silver Box’s disc off its mount before tearing into its wheelguards and wheels, eventually leaving it immobilised before its own rim stops working. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:49, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Gyrobot will be able to cause a solid amount of damage and won't any under real pressure throughout. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Gyrobot's chances of qualification in this episode are fair, less than 50%, but the draw might work in its favour. Gyrobot has a rare luxury in that it has had experience fighting a robot coated in fur previously, so Zanzara's purple coat shouldn't be an issue. ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Did anyone else watch Gyrobot's Series 7 qualifier and notice they tore away part of the arena wall? If it's working to that ability, Silver Box doesn't have a chance in hell. Raz3r(talk) 16:58, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Judging from Zanzara, Silver Box did not like spinners at all, and Gyrobot could be pretty destructive. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I doubt there are many cases when a loanerbot will beat a half decent actual entrant. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:30, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

Brimhur Steg 2
Votes for Brimhur Votes for Steg 2
  1. Brimhur will be inverted many times in this battle. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. That ground clearance, many robots in Series 3 had insanely high ground clearances. That last-moment shift to the all-fighting format really didn't do them any favours. Basically, we have a robot designed to run the Gauntlet against a robot designed purely to fight. CrashBash (talk) 08:37, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. I do not rate Steg 2 as much as others do, but it surely has the advantage here. From what I have heard, Brimhur's aerial is encased inside the robot itself, which come to think of it, is a wonder it actually worked at all. Steg 2 to dominate in that case. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:18, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Hey look Brimhur! Not only fighting here but also in my One Time Loser doesn't look like it'll have a good time, insult to injury.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:04, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Brimhur will be reduced to brimstone once Steg 2 starts flipping it over and over around the arena. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:49, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Another easy flipper exhibition. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I don't see Steg 2 going much further than this, but now we know that its seeding put it even lower than it actually placed in Series 3, it deserves the win here. ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. I think machines like these really highlight the huge changes between Series 3 and 4; Steg 2 won't just win, they will absolutely dominate Brimhur. Raz3r(talk) 17:01, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Brimhur was barely mobile anyway because of the reception issues, Steg 2 will thrash it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  1. One flip would be enough. Even if the flipper is broken, the wedge is good enough to do it. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I don't think Excalibur can right itself. Considering it managed to get under and overturn Behemoth, even without its flipper, UFO should have this. CrashBash (talk) 08:39, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Flip and it's done for.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:04, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  6. Excali-timberrrr ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Excalibur's gone blunt against UFO 2 here, who actually seemed like a competent machine with good driving. Raz3r(talk) 17:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. A flip or tip of doom will do here. The most notable aspect of Excalibur to me? That time when one of the team members stated on a YouTube video that they wanted a rematch against Centurion, mentioning that in the pits, a bet was placed on them to win against Centurion. Then, some random fan commentated that they lost cleanly and fairly when they said that it was unfair that Excalibur lost, in a quite rude fashion, which to this day I still tell myself that when stating that someone might be wrong, to say it in a nice but firm tone. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 17:28, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Yeah, that random fan was me. And I was being nice and everything. They certainly didn't convince me. If I remember correctly, they were insisting they were "playing dead" and all I said was if that's what they were doing, they should have shown some signs of movement. CrashBash (talk) 18:56, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. One flip should do it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  1. Demon will get under Rot Box more often than not. Eventually, a wheel might fall off Rot Box, leaving Demon victorious. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Y'know, if this was Battlebots, Rot Box would probably automatically win because "LOLZ, ACTEEV WEIPAN!!" But given how fragile it was, I'll give Demon the benefit of the doubt. Whoever wins, unless they get Shogun/Leighviathan in the next round, they're pretty much screwed. CrashBash (talk) 08:40, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Demon will ram its way to victory.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:06, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. I refer you to my vote on the Silver Box-Gyrobot fight earlier. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:33, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Rot Box
  1. Demon has a stupidly high ground clearance and a curved wedge that pretty much nullifies it's offensive output. Add the fact that it broke down off screen and you've got a robot I'd have actually put Bugs or Cunning Plan through against. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:32, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Rot Box’s high ground clearance and unreliable axe would normally make it vulnerable to being shoved around the arena by Demon's wedge. However, Demon was considerably slower moving across the arena, and its sudden breakdown against The Mule does not bode well for its long-term stamina here. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:49, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. As long as Rot Box drives safely enough, its speed and weapon should take this. Demon will hardly be able to control the fight, even with its sloped sides. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. I don't care if Bang is a wooden loanerbot, at least it didn't move at 2mph!!!!!! I'm sorry, let me rephrase that. Demon can only drive at 2mph!!!!!! And if you watch its Gauntlet run, it's very clear that was no typo. Demon also has no weapon!!!! Nick Adams or no Nick Adams, Demon is one of the worst robots to compete on the show, looking like something I could make on Robot Arena 2. Bang's weapon could fall off upon striking Demon and it would still win. ToastUltimatum 16:09, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Lets be honest here though, whoever wins this is probably going to get wrecked unless they face Leighviathan. CrashBash (talk) 17:03, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    I don't think Vercingetorix would be impossible for Bang, and 3 Stegs to Heaven's lucky run shows that it may well get Leighviathan next. ToastUltimatum 17:28, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    Inb4 Terrorhurtz. Jimlaad43(talk) 21:54, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Rot Box is faster and has the... better... weaponry and while its armour is shocking, it's not like Demon is going to do anything about it, right? Raz3r(talk) 17:11, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Well, I actually did have a vote supporting Rot Box before anyone else, but alas I ran out of time completing it. Anyhow, my vote in a nutshell is a combination of what Toon Ganondorf, VulcansHowl and ToastUltimatum have said in their votes. Although Rot Box is fragile and unreliable, at least it can move at a relatively fast pace; Demon is one of the slowest wheeled robots in the history of the show. Rot Box has an axe that may not be a Dominator 2 in damage or aggression, is still capable of scoring points that could sway the judges over. Meanwhile, Demon does have a wedge and rear spikes, but the ground clearance is too high, and the spikes too high up the robot for them to become effective. Finally, Rot Box is unreliable, but Toon Ganondorf reminded me that Demon had technical troubles too, so I suspect that Rot Box will win this easily. I agree with ToastUltimatum here on Demon's lack of competitiveness, as Demon may even struggle to beat joke robots like Piece De Resistance and Fighting Torque, among other robots built soley for entertainment rather than to win the series. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 17:28, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Yeah, Rot Box has this. If Demon was faster, I might vote for it, but 2mph is too damn slow, I think most walkers would outpace it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

Terrorhurtz vs Bulldog BreedEdit

Terrorhurtz 2016
Bulldog series 7
Votes for Terrorhurtz
  1. Oh wow, a pretty poor heat ends with two All-Stars fighting each other. Presuming Terrorhurtz's axe is working, Bulldog Breed is going to struggle. BB didn't have the killing power, despite a great flipper it only got one OotA. Even so, Dantomkia never managed to get Terrorhurtz out, so how Bulldog Breed will with a smaller zone to get it out. While it isn't upside-down, Terrorhurtz will utterly batter the top of BB, who showed itself to not be happy when taking heavy hits from robots like Hypno-Disc and X-Terminator. This battle will be like the Dantomkia battle in the Challenge Belt, only with a more powerful axe, and a better anti-flipper design. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:31, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Well, I think this is fair to say that this is extremely unfortunate. Top 16 last time, crashes out early this time. Jim has said all that needs to be said. CrashBash (talk) 08:41, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Terrorhurtz is brutal when it attacks, let's just hope the weapon works...Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:07, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  4. It’ll be close, and I can expect Bulldog Breed to land a few major flips on Terrorhurtz and survive its axe blows to take this one to the judges. However, the 2016 Terrorhurtz combines its highly-damaging axe with speed, a highly effective front wedge and strong pushing power, which will be enough for it to overhaul Bulldog Breed's advantage on aggression and control as well. VulcansHowl (talk) 13:49, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  5. For me, it doesn't matter if Terrorhurtz causes much visible damage or not (even though I think it will cause notable damage), because the amount of hits it will strike will be so significant it'll take the judges' decision anyway. Bulldog Breed has to KO Terrorhurtz to win this, and I just see it getting complete outdriven for most of the fight. It just doesn't have any real finishing power that Terrorhurtz should be scared of. Nweston8 (talk) 14:05, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Imagine my face, thinking 'well adding Tsunami upped the caliber of this heat somewhat, but it's still not the strongest', and then I see this fight come up! Terrorhurtz can self-right easily under working conditions, and its wedge would probably breach Bulldog Breed's, the latter being unable to scores a KO, which had just as many wins via the Judges as The Grimreaper within Series 7, and it even failed to finish off Lambsy before that. ToastUltimatum 16:14, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I don't see a KO here. Bulldog Breed certainly can't flip Terrorhurtz out of the arena, and they can't push them around either. If Terrorhurtz ever has its axe facing Bulldog Breed there will be a lot of dents afterwards, but Bulldog Breed took a lot worse from X-Terminator and, sort of, kept going for a bit. Sure Bulldog Breed can get underneath if Terrorhurtz hops around like the maniac it was, but as already mentioned, they might get a flip, but not a KO. Terrohurtz will probably win on damage and aggression, which would be enough. This has to be the biggest Round 1 exit so far, unless I've forgotten someone. Raz3r(talk) 17:16, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Bulldog Breed's exterior is strong, but I am concerned that its internals are not quite up to scratch with surviving the relentless blows of this Terrorhurtz's axe. The only way Bulldog Breed can win is if it continually flips its opponent and preventing it from self-righting to win a Judges' decision, but I doubt the flip can breach the ground clearance of its opponent. Hence, Terrorhurtz to win via a knockout or a Judges' decision. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 17:28, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  9. With Terrorhurtz's axe working, there's very little Bulldog Breed can do here. Even if Bulldog Breed manages to breach the ground clearance (during which it'll have to withstand a hail of axe blows), Terrorhurtz was a very good self-righter, and will just keep on axing. Maaaaaybe no knock out, but given how Bulldog Breed's chassis was allegedly twisted badly out of shape by Infernal Contraption landing on it, I wouldn't bet against it. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:34, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  10. Why oh why oh why, is the structure of my chromosomes. (Sorry!) Two great robots meet far too early, and Terrorhurtz will be the one to progress on damage. Bulldog Breed is too compact to overpower it. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:35, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Bulldog Breed
  1. This is a ruthless call, but Terrorhurtz has a stronger history of losing to flippers than Bulldog Breed has to being beaten into submission with blunt force (not flywheel). Bulldog Breed is more agile than Spawn Again, and Terrorhurtz is less likely to land the constant barrage of hits needed. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:30, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    If I recall correctly, though, Terrorhurtz has only lost three times to a flipper-wielding robot, and of those, only one of them (Dantomkia) was really legit. It just broke down against Firestorm and its axe wasn't working against Behemoth. Meanwhile, it defeated Kronic 2, Spawn Again, Bigger Brother and won its rematch against Dantomkia. Basically, it's beaten more flippers than it's lost to them. CrashBash (talk) 09:46, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
    All true, but Bulldog Breed is a smaller target. I've also counter Terrorhurtz's axe unreliability as a factor because something that plagued half of Terrorhurtz's battles certainly can and should be taken into account. Please note that I'm conceding the point about EW and have just removed the comments to save space. Much as I enjoy debating every one of my votes Crash I have to admit they get cramped.Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:50, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  2. Looks like Weld-Dor has the significant advantage here. Even if they clashed blade to blade, I suspect Weld-Dor's to be stronger. CrashBash (talk) 08:42, November 22, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Weld-Dor 3 had a good run last Ragnabot, and it appears to be doing so again, winning against the original Darke Destroyer with a flip of doom. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:18, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

  8. This DD's heat was terrible and it is, in my mind, one of the worst heat finalists ever. The original Weld-Dor could have won this, let alone Weld-Dor 3, who only need one good flip to end this. Even if they can't do that, Weld-Dor 3 can still use their far lower ground clearance to push DD around the arena. Raz3r(talk) 17:21, November 22, 2016 (UTC)

Votes for Gyrobot
  1. Weld-Dor's high angled wedge is going to be a problem here. You need a lower angle, as The Grimreaper had to get under Gyrobot to disturb it. Without that, Weld-Dor is going to have to hope the wheels don't fall off. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:44, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Y'know what, why not? Maybe I'm over-rating Gyrobot in the long run, but if it can cause damage to Grim Reaper, it can probably cause damage to Weld-Dor. Those wheels do look exposed, as well. CrashBash (talk) 09:25, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Wheels.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 09:47, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Yeah, wheels. There's very little Weld-Dor 3 can do here, it won't get as many flips as The Grim Reaper managed, and will take more damage. Combatwombat555 (talk) 11:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  5. If Gyrobot can avoid Weld-Dor 3’s flipper from the outset, its opponent’s wheels are easy targets for its rim to damage, buckle and rip off. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  6. I was never impressed with Weld-Dor 3, but was with Gyrobot, of whom can attack its opponent's wheels at the very least, to win via a knockout or Judges' decision. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 14:26, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Hardly as one sided as it seems, and I can see Weld-Dor 3 pretty much dominating, but at one point a wheel is coming off. Nweston8 (talk) 15:49, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Weld-Dor 3's wheels will act like magnets towards Gyrobot. I can't see many flips here either due to the high wedge, as Jimlaad pointed out. Raz3r(talk) 16:26, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Gyrobot's invertability will negate Weld-Dor's flipper, and the damage potential on the wheels will count against it as well. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:26, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

Votes for Ripper
  1. People are going to think I'm voting against Terrorhurtz because it keeps running against my favourites but I feel less confident in this than in Bulldog Breed. Maybe it's because I don't pay attention to outside Robot Wars but with the exception of Series 6 Terrorhurtz had been too inconsistent for me to be wholly comfortable voting it through against every bot. Ripper will take a hell of a lot of damage but Ripper can dominate the battle with aggressive flips. I expect to be alone on this one though. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 08:59, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I'll give a consolation vote to the unfortunate Ripper, Terrorhurtz's ground clearance didn't give me the 'precision-milled' impression I got from the Extreme 2 Terrorhurtz, so Ripper should breach it, and Terrorhurtz's axe also retracted more slowly in 2016. Needless to say though, Terrorhurtz is a potential champion after this win. ToastUltimatum 19:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Terrorhurtz
  1. Facing Terrorhurtz in this heat is pretty much a guaranteed loss, so unfortunately, the pretty flimsy Ripper will be ripped apart by Terrorhurtz. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:44, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Three words - Ripper's flimsy armour. I don't really care about the overall construction of Ripper, the fact of the matter is that damage is still damage even if it doesn't affect the robot's performance in the long run. What MIGHT affect Ripper though is this - after it went over attacking the House Robots against Daisy Cutter, Ripper's flipper plate ended up being badly bent to the point it no longer stayed flush on the floor. Now think about what Terrorhurtz might do...thus preventing Ripper from getting underneath. Heck, Behemoth struggled to get underneath. CrashBash (talk) 09:29, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  3. This Ripper, in my opinion, has weak armour, I've seen a video from 2004 where Pussycat manages to tear the entire armour side off! Imagine what Terrorhurtz would do?!Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 09:51, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Blimey, no one could claim Terrorhurtz has an easy journey through its heat. It's a shame to see Ripper go so early, and I think it might get a couple of flips, but it's going to take a hell of a lot of damage. Combatwombat555 (talk) 11:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Well, if this footage of Terrorhurtz fighting Ripper in 2004 doesn’t convince me that Ripper will have its armour and flipper plate hacked off by that axe at some point, I don’t know what will. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
    Oh, well, in that case, any doubt I may have had is gone, Terrorhurtz is definitely winning this one. CrashBash (talk) 13:06, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Even without the evidence handily supplied to me by Liam Bryant and VulcansHowl, I would still go for Terrorhurtz, as although Ripper can flip its opponent around the arena, its armour was light and its flipper also seemed vulnerable to the axe of Terrorhurtz. I still think Ripper will hang on to a Judges' decision loss, however. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 14:26, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Ripper bladed front will help it keep itself at arms reach sometimes, but overall Terrorhurtz is just too outwardly aggressive and will cause too much damage. Nweston8 (talk) 15:49, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  8. I'm going to stop predicting dark horses and early drop-outs from now on. I'll probably forget I said this in 3 or 4 heats time, but gah this is disappointing for Ripper to go so soon. Terrorhurtz will dominate this fight though with its damage and aggression, even if Ripper is able to get underneath for some flips. Raz3r(talk) 16:23, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  9. I don't think I can use the Ripper armour argument here. Terrorhurtz isn't as susceptible to being flipped as the various spinners we've used it with. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:28, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

Votes for Disc-O-Inferno
  1. Disc-O will spin up and rip the sides off Bamm Bamm. The axe won't have a chance to cause any damage, and Bamm Bamm will be Bammed into defeat. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:44, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Bamm Bamm didn't have an answer to Botwork, and provided that Disc O doesn't burn out it will not progress here. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:06, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
    Wrong way around TG, it was Botwork that didn't have an answer to Bamm Bamm. CrashBash (talk) 09:29, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
    True but height excluded Bamm Bamm would not have had an answer. It's weapons and armour certainly didn't. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:54, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  3. I believe that Disc-O-Inferno's disc is even more powerful than Botwork's and lower too, as watching that grand final melee, it seemed Botwork's disc was too high to actually hit Bamm Bamm to cause notable damage. Anyhow, I doubt Bamm Bamm will be able to whack Disc-O-Inferno to the point where the latter will break down, so I can see some panels of it being ripped off by that disc. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:26, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Disc-O is lower than Botwork was, so it should probably hit Bamm Bamm. CrashBash (talk) 09:29, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

  7. Bamm Bamm will be clubbed to death by Disc-O-Inferno’s disc. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Bamm Bamm just isn't built for a battle like this. Nweston8 (talk) 15:49, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

Scraptosaur vs TsunamiEdit

Scraptosaur Tsunami
Scraptosaur 03
Votes for Scraptosaur
  1. I think I may be in the minority here, but I do not actually trust Tsunami to do well against flippers. If Tsunami misses one flip against Scraptosaur, it will flip itself over or at the very least make itself jump, thus allowing its opponent to get underneath and counterattack. After all, Scraptosaur was reasonably controlled in its battles, and was able to dominate St. Agro right until it, um, ran out of Co2. However, Tsunami too has a low Co2 tank, and if Scraptosaur can maneuver itself to its opponent's sides (which has a higher ground clearance than the flipper), then maybe, just maybe Scraptosaur will be able to continually flip Tsunami, to the point where the latter wastes flips and finally runs out.

  5. A flipping good match, but one that'll probably end with Scraptosaur upside-down. Combatwombat555 (talk) 11:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Scraptosaur may be aggressive, but its flipper was nowhere near as powerful or long-lasting as Tsunami's, and I can see it becoming the Flying Dutchman in no time. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Scraptosaur has the longer sides and a less explosive flip, whereas Tsunami is so, so compact that Scraptosaur will probably end up actually exposing itself to a quick turn from Tsunami when it does try to get into a position to flip it. Nweston8 (talk) 15:49, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  8. If Tsunami were larger and a bit slower, I'd consider Scraptosaur, but Tsunami is too quick and too powerful. I'd be gutted if Tsunami face Terrorhurtz in Round 3. Raz3r(talk) 16:32, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Good logic from SpaceManiac, but I just don't think Scraptosaur is the right sort of opponent to be able to capitalise on that happening. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:30, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  10. I'm pleased to see a vote for Scraptosaur 03, but Marien van der Meer admitted its poor self-righting was no fluke, it was just an inferior robot than Scrap-II-Saur despite the better armour. ToastUltimatum 19:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

UFO 2 vs Steg 2Edit

UFO 2 Steg 2
Votes for UFO 2
  1. Steg 2 jumped around way too much and could not self right reliably. What is key is that unlike Judge Shred and most flippers, Steg 2's flipper is at the rear of the machine and there's no incentive to go near it. Steg 2s flipper doesn't protect its vulnerable sides. In studying Steg 2 I now see why it's the strongest reason why the flipper and wedge compliment so well. It's hard to aim, has very limited flipper mass to get underneath the opponent and catapults with such force I have no faith it can side strand. I'll always love Steg 2 but a subtle and understated robot like UFO will give it a run for its money. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 09:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Unlike Toon Ganondorf above, I am not really a fan of Steg 2, thinking that it got really lucky to progress through to the semi-finals at all. The main issue with Steg 2 is its maneuverability, or lack of it. Crusader 2 and a poorly Mortis were able to easily attack the sides of Steg 2 without much hassle, and if it was not for Mortis' lifter malfunctioning, I suspect Steg 2 would have lost that battle pretty easily. Plus, UFO 2 was very quick and agile across the arena and should be able to get underneath its opponent several times (after all, Steg 2 suffered badly against flippers, Chaos 2 dominated it in my opinion), toppling it over a lot, before Steg 2 runs out of CO2. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 09:15, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  3. UFO can be sidestranded, yes...but so can Steg 2. And when you think about it, who of the two of them is better equipped to side-strand the other. UFO may have the weaker flipper, but in these circumstances, it'll be a blessing in disguise. CrashBash (talk) 09:33, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  4. I'm a fan of Steg 2 and firmly believe it's the best of the Steg machines, but I don't see it beating UFO, like Jim says it bounces too much, leaving good opportunities to attack.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 09:56, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  5. I'm with this side- Steg 2 never seemed the most manoeuvrable of robots, whereas UFO was pretty decent in that regard and should keep getting to Steg 2's vulnerable sides. Eventually a side-stranding, I think. Combatwombat555 (talk) 11:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  6. UFO’s wedge was highly effective, and the only way in which it’ll probably be defeated is if Steg 2 can land a side-on flip that leaves it stranded on its side in the same way that Judge Shred 3 did. However, Steg 2 had a relatively high ground clearance around the front and sides as well an unwelcome tendency to launch itself off the ground whenever its flipper fired. I feel that UFO will take advantage of these flaws by getting under, pushing and flipping Steg 2 around the arena until it runs out of CO2. Given that this was how Steg 2 succumbed to Chaos 2 in the Series 4 Semis, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this battle go the same way. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I hardly trust UFO to make light work of this - it'll take multiple failed attempts before Steg 2 is positioned on the wedge well enough, but it'll still get in enough flip and use its wedge to generally control the fight to win. Nweston8 (talk) 15:49, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  8. Control will be key in this battle. UFO were well controlled in Series 7 and might have pulled off an upset if they weren't side stranded in their fight against Judge Shred 3 (not saying they would have done, but the potential was there). On the other hand, Steg 2 wasn't the best when it comes to control, and I also see a side-stranding with the weaker flipper. Raz3r(talk) 16:36, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  9. Fairly close, but UFO was better driven in all three of its battles than Steg 2 was in its history, and it has a more conducive shape and wedge for the job of getting the flip. Steg weighing 80kg means it will be all the easier to chuck over, and it won't be able to respond forever, which UFO could quite easily. ToastUltimatum 19:01, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Steg 2
  1. Steg had an awesome flipper and not much else. UFO didn't have much of a flipper, and I don't trust that wedge as a good enough weapon to turn Steg over (and they'll just right themselves anyway). Steg can flip UFO over, and they weren't too happy about that, getting easily side-stranded. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:44, November 24, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Are we seriously putting Steg 2 out here? I honestly think it would walk this. UFO's flipper just isn't on a par with Firestorm's, and I just don't see them getting far enough underneath Steg 2 to get a side-stranding killer flip. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:32, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

  6. Splinter showed itself to be an excellent rammer, while the Series 3 Vercingetorix was undone by its vulnerability to being pushed around from the side. Splinter to push and grab hold of Vercingetorix before axing and pitting it. VulcansHowl (talk) 11:46, November 24, 2016 (UTC)

Gyrobot vs Tut TutEdit

Gyrobot Tut Tut
Votes for Gyrobot
  1. There you go Toast haha. I don't even think Tut Tut's axe goes low enough to hit Gyro, and even if it does, it isn't going to cause any damage. The sides of Tut Tut may deflect the hits, but it will still take some damage and lose. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:38, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Well, I doubt this counts as over-rating Gyrobot. I think it can cause damage to Tut Tut's side, and might even damage the wheels. We've had Tut Tut lose to other spinners like Ninjitsu and Propeller-Head before, so why not Gyrobot? CrashBash (talk) 09:42, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Rattus Rattus really wouldn't have done well, Tut Tut gave it their best but Gyrobot will rip and tear.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:03, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. I was close to voting for Tut Tut, as Gyrobot's transparent armour would be very weak to the team-enhanced axe of the loanerbot. Then I had a lightbulb moment; Gyrobot can just enter upside-down! Its article is littered with pictures of Gyrobot's thick steel underside, to the point where maybe that is even the true 'top' armour of the machine. Tut Tut can't flip it, and even the best loanerbot weapon in the show's history still isn't going to punch through thick steel. Gyrobot has the damage advantage, and possibly more pushing power as well. ToastUltimatum 20:12, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. I was um-ing and ah-ing about this one for ages- both have weapons that the other is weak to, and Tut Tut's axe could very easily go through the polycarbonate on Gyrobot (although having watched Tut Tut in action I'm not too convinced by the power of the axe)- but Toast's argument has swayed me. Gyrobot to tear up the sides of Tut Tut, and it's not going to be too concerned about that axe on the steel. Combatwombat555 (talk) 22:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for Tut Tut
  1. Well, I am pleased that at least one of these robots will be progressing onwards, but I am backing the loanerbot here. The issue with Gyrobot here is that although it is powerful, and capable of damaging Tut Tut's slightly exposed wheels, it has a flat top perfect for Tut Tut's axe. Unlike what has been claimed on the other side, Tut Tut's axe can reach the arena floor, so it should be able to attack Gyrobot with it, once it has managed to deflect one of its opponent's attacks early on. Once it locks on (which I think it will), Tut Tut should be able to control the spinner, especially if it manages to attack one of the tyres directly. If that happens, Tut Tut will dominate, but even without damaging the tyre, Tut Tut should be able to win a Judges' decision on aggression (which counts more than damage) and control. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  2. I’m going for the upset here. Sure, Gyrobot’s rim was potent, and will cause some damage to Tut Tut’s sides and wheels, but it stopped working after a couple of hits in both of its Series 7 battles, and I am confident that Tut Tut will repeatedly axe and push Gyrobot around the arena once that happens. Like SpaceManiac says, Gyrobot’s tyres and top panel could be left very vulnerable to getting punctured as a result. VulcansHowl (talk) 10:49, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. It all depends on how well Gyrobot takes the hits. Tut Tut is actually well equipped to take on Gyrobot; its axe can cause damage to the flat top and its armour was better than other loanerbots. This battle could definitely go either way, but I can see Tut Tut being more aggressive, and while Gyrobot was powerful when up to spinning speeds, I'm not sure whether or not they will be given the room to get up to powerful speeds here. Raz3r(talk) 11:36, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Unless Tut Tut is immobilised pretty quickly, then I fancy it to score some axe hits (whether they're good enough for decent damage is another story), and more importantly, be able to force Gyrobot around the arena and dictate the battle. Nweston8 (talk) 16:07, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Tut Tut is a solid wedge design and should be able to deflect Gyrobot's attacks. Gyrobot's top armor is vulnerable and if Tut Tut can get some good strikes in, it could possibly immobilize it with a shot to the battery. --Headbanger14/The Hardcore Kid 18:02, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Gyrobot isn't that bad, but I'd say Tut Tut is solid enough and powerful enough to withstand any spinning attacks and cause damage itself to progress. Hogwild94 (talk) 18:58, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  7. I haven't had time to adequately research, but after much consideration I'm supporting Tut Tut. The two factors to be considered are the axe and Tut Tuts shape, which manages to slope away from the enemy weapon and therefore mean the only thing Gyrobot can hit is bottom of the pyramid. That will be where the chassis is, and as such more than superficial damage is unlikely. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 03:40, November 27, 2016 (UTC)

Terrorhurtz vs Disc-O-InfernoEdit

Votes for Terrorhurtz
  1. Carbide is a much stronger version of Disc-O effectively. They are the same design, just with reliability and a decade of extra technology. In effect, I'm saying that we know how Terrorhurtz dealt with Carbide, and the weaker, similar Disc-O-Inferno will face the same exit. Terrorhurtz has already ruined the hopes of three of the best robots in this heat. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:38, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Carbide's weapon spins over twice as fast as this S6+ version of Disc-O Inferno. Terrorhurtz's victory over that was no fluke, minus the fact its axe wasn't working. If we assume it is working, I think it can do whatever it wants. Something will give eventually. CrashBash (talk) 09:44, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. And Terrorhurtz is sure to get to the Grand Final I'm sure.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:06, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. Disc-O-Inferno was never the most reliable of robots, look at Series 6 for evidence of that. Terrorhurtz's axe in the 2016 Series was something to fear, and I suspect that once it deflects one of Disc-O-Inferno's attacks, its axe will be able to slam right at the top of its opponent. A couple more attacks like this will eventually see Terrorhurtz continue its reign of terror. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. The 2016 Terrorhurtz overcame its original weakness to spinners, and I can see it doing to Disc-O-Inferno exactly what it did to Carbide. Deflect the disc, ram it around the arena with the speed and wedge, and - with the axe working - hack away at its polycarbonate top until it breaks down. The party’s over for Disc-O-Inferno! VulcansHowl (talk) 10:49, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Terrorhurtz's modified design meant it could beat robots like Disc-O-Inferno with ease. The flat top of Disc-O-Inferno combined with Terrorhurtz's terrifying axe and good control from John Reid means that the dance has ended here. Terrorhurtz has knocked out 3 of the other 4 best robots in this heat without breaking a sweat.Raz3r(talk) 11:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

  1. Tsunami is like Bigger Brother on some weird drugs, so Splinter is going to be chucked around willy-nilly. Splinter might get a chance to push once in a while, but they'll soon be turned over. There is a chance of Splinter pitting Tsunami, but that's 10% compared the the 90% that Tsunami will flip Splinter constantly and eventually strand it either upside-down or over the fence.

  2. Welp, there goes my theory that Splinter will escape the heats. Its self-righting is so hit and miss Tsunami could probably end it in a single flip. CrashBash (talk) 09:45, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Splinter's reign of terror ends here.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:06, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. The only way Splinter can win this if Tsunami misses one of its flips, jumps, and Splinter catches it in a deadly embrace. However, Tsunami should be able to successfully flip Splinter, possibly OotA too. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Well, Tsunami should be able to repeat what Bigger Brother did to Splinter, but with more force. VulcansHowl (talk) 10:49, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  6. Sorry Splinter, but Tsunami is fast enough to get around the sides and flip them over. From there, Tsunami can just control where they want Splinter to go, which is most likely to be OotA. Raz3r(talk) 11:24, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  7. Oh, Splinter. Such a solid robot, but against a good flipper, it just stands little chance. Not to mention that Tsunami is a bit better than just a 'good' flipper. Nweston8 (talk) 16:07, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  8. I'm not even convinced that Splinter can self-right. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:28, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  9. One of the rare cases where an earlier incarnation might have fared better. Hogwild94 (talk) 19:00, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  10. Splinter always gets a lucky draw in these tournaments until today. ToastUltimatum 20:12, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

Conquering Clown 2 vs UFO 2Edit

Votes for Conquering Clown 2
  1. I'm voting for Conquering Clown because we need at least ONE silly robot in the Quarter Finals. I'm not, actually, but that would be a bonus. My actual vote is I'm not convinced UFO will be able to easily get underneath it, let alone flip it. I do not believe Conquering Clown is anywhere near as top-heavy as it looks and I can't really see UFO flipping it. Also, that blade does have a lot of reach, so even if it doesn't cause that much damage, it'll still show aggression. Judges decision in favour of the clown, whilst Mick Foley rages.

    I had no idea that Mick Foley had heat with Doink. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  2. UFO isn't bad but I feel like Conquering Clown will be faster, more damaging and may have the better pushing power.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 10:11, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. Well, at least Steg 2's controversial exit means we get a fascinating fight here instead of a walkover against Conquering Clown. I still think people are overrating UFO somewhat; I'm not convinced its flipper is right for getting a killer flip here, and those exposed wheels will be vulnerable to the spinner. Hogwild94 (talk) 19:02, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. This is close, and I'll be happy with either outcome, but I'm going to edge towards the Clown. Conqueror's wheels are right at the back of the machine, so if it drives up UFO's wedge, it might still have traction on the ground, and tilting its body backwards may also stop it from going over. It will at least work as a srimech. More importantly, as UFO is a front-hinged flipper, it can't flip without first making contact with the blade, meaning it will have to take damage in order to launch any meaningful attacks. The kicker for me is that the Clown probably can't self-right from all angles, but I'm going to ride this hunch. ToastUltimatum 20:12, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. Conquering Clown is so wide and yet balanced that UFO will have to get completely underneath it to have any hope. I don't believe it will and as a result the Clown will win on aggression. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 03:37, November 27, 2016 (UTC)
Votes for UFO 2
  1. This battle will last until CC2 goes up the wedge and tips over. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:38, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Is it true that Conquering Clown 2 can actually self-right? After all, its body was able to move in a way that suggested it could. Even with this supposed ability, however, UFO was very nimble across the arena, where I believe it could get underneath its opponent several times at the side and possibly even the rear. It should be able to avoid the blade, so I think UFO will win on a Judges' decision by aggression and control. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 10:18, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  3. UFO has the control and speed to avoid Conquering Clown’s blade, and the wedge to get underneath and flip it. I did think for a moment that Conquering Clown 2’s arms and body were meant to act as srimechs, but they looked far too fragile for them to be effective, and might end up bending or breaking off once UFO throws it over. Mick Foley can breathe a sigh of relief after this. VulcansHowl (talk) 10:49, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  4. CC2 may well have the upper hand on damage, but I see UFO 2 being more aggressive and controlled, and I'm not sure whether or not the clown can actually self-right. Raz3r(talk) 11:28, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  5. UFO will have to bide its time, because it'll be awkward to fully topple CC2 over in a few positions, but at one point, its control and patience will be enough. Nweston8 (talk) 16:07, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
  6. I can see Conquering Clown 2 doing some damage with the blade, but UFO was nimble and should be able to get underneath and get a killer flip. Or pit. Combatwombat555 (talk) 17:28, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
Winner: UFO 2 (5-6)
