- "Like Star Jones at Hometown Buffet, keep your hands away from this beating. frenZy!"
- — Mark Beiro, BattleBots announcer
frenZy (also spelled Frenzy) was an American robot that fought in numerous BattleBots tournaments in the United States with a fair amount of success. It had also fought in the original 1997 Robot Wars as well as the 1996 Robot Wars under the name TerMinal frenZy.
The robot itself was a round in shape and made out of CNC machined 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum. It was armed with a titanium battle axe that could deliver a deadly blow and also doubled as a srimech. frenZy's designer was Patrick Campbell, a mechanical design engineer who works for Pace Technologies of Sun Valley, California, who also fought in Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors with The Bat. He also competed in the first Robot Wars in 1994 with a heavyweight and lightweight called TMZ, but both were defeated in the first round by The Master and Pain Mower, respectively.
frenZy represented the United States in the Fourth Wars War of Independence, where it placed second overall. It also came second in the MTV Pilot. During the second season of BattleBots, frenZy fought Panic Attack, and was able to beat it by KO in the second round of the tournament, causing major damage to its srimech lid with its hammer, before advancing to the semi-finals to lose to Robot Combat Hall of Famer Biohazard. The team later competed in Robot Wars Extreme Warriors Season 2 with The Bat, reaching the final of its heat.
frenZy competed in the War of Independence and faced Robot Wars veterans Detonator, a British representative, in Round One. It repeatedly hammered its opponent, and although it got stuck by impaling its hammer into the arena floor at one point, it immoblised Detonator, crushing its top panel with its hammer and setting it on fire before leaving it to the house robots to be flipped and pitted. In Round Two it faced Ming 2, also representing the UK. It defeated Ming by breaking its radio control receiver in one blow, and so was through to the final against Mortis, another UK robot. Mortis flipped it over numerous times, but frenZy had difficulty hitting Mortis with its hammer. frenZy took severe damage throughout the battle from Mortis' tanto blade. Mortis pushed it into Sergeant Bash, who damaged it, before frenZy was axed and flipped many more times, before finally its axe lost power and was unable to self-right, rendering it immobile. Mortis repeatedly hammered its underside, then it was thrown by the floor flipper.
