The list below consists of errors made in official Robot Wars media, in the form of misinformation, spelling errors, visual discrepancies, and other miscellaneous mistakes made.

Note: The rebooted series of Robot Wars do not reference the classic series. As such, "errors" that are simply failures to recall events from previous series of Robot Wars are excluded from this list, as are perceived to be deliberate omissions.

TV SeriesEdit

GeneralEdit

BBbooth5

The Bulldog Breed team in the team booth, with an image displaying Juggernot 2 in the background

  • Jonathan Pearce frequently uses the term "armament" to describe armour when the term actually refers to weaponry.
  • Occasionally during Series 5 and Extreme 1, the team booths will not feature a picture of their robot in the background. Sometimes, it uses the image of their opponent, and sometimes it features a robot that isn't even participating in the current battle.
  • Starting from Extreme 1, due to the robots entering the arena being shown out of order, robots are seen entering the arena and then seconds later they are still in the doorway.
  • Throughout Extreme 1 and Series 5, the pictures on the stat boards often show the wrong version of the robot - for example, a picture of Dominator 2 without the wheel guards is used in Series 5, and some of the Extreme 1 battles, such as the Wild Card battle, even though Dominator 2 added wheel guards after their Extreme 1 All-Stars battle, and in Spawn Again's Heat and Semi-Final in Series 5, the picture on the stat board shows Spawn Again with the Extreme 1 paint scheme instead of the Series 5 paint scheme.
  • Mortis was said to cost £100,000 to build. In reality, the out-of-pocket costs were much lower, and that number represents a rough approximation of the robot's value based on its customized parts and engineering.
  • Jonathan Pearce occasionally referred to robots' weapons being hydraulic when they were actually pneumatic, and vice versa. Matilda's tusks being referred to as hydraulic on many occasions is a notable example.
  • On several robots' statistics boards, some of the team members had either their first name or their surname larger than the other.
  • In series that used House Robot stat cards, often the given stat cards would not match which House Robots were actually present in the battle.
  • Many stat boards feature a team member who is not even present with the team either because they were unable to attend or were absent from filming or so.
  • In some battles, the 'Cease' announcement would not be heard at the end.
  • Similarly, the 'Roboteers standby' announcement was sometimes not heard before some battles.
  • Although Chaos 2's top speed was consistently quoted as 20mph in the TV series, it was always quoted as 12mph in other media, such as the various official guides.
  • Throughout both seasons of the US series, the description of Sir Killalot's power source on his statistics board used the UK term 'petrol' rather than the US equivalent 'gas'.

The First WarsEdit

Incorrect labyrinth results
  • On Roadblock's statistics board in Heat A, Hender Blewett's name was incorrectly spelt as "Hender Blewitt".
  • Jonathan Pearce said in the Heat Final of Heat B that Mortis' axe looked bent, when actually it had been removed completely and replaced with a ramming spike.
  • Also in Heat B, during the British Bulldog trial, Mortis is seen approaching Matilda from the top-right in one shot, only to disappear in the very next shot as the latter rams Recyclopse. However, it is seen directly next to Matilda in the background of the following shot, where Shunt pushes Leighbot into a pyramid.
  • Psychosprout was misspelt as Pyschosprout.
  • REALI-T and Bodyhammer's Trial placings in Heat E were mistakenly reversed, putting Bodyhammer second and REALI-T fourth.
  • For the final three heats, the original format for the battles (1 vs 3, 2 vs 4) was removed.
  • In Heat D, Jeremy Clarkson stated incorrectly that it featured lightweight robots.
  • As Mortis was announced as the best engineered robot in the awards of the final episode, Arthur Chillcot had his name misspelt as "Arthur Chillcut".
  • After Dreadnaut's Gauntlet run in Heat C, Jonathan Pearce pronounced the robot's name as Dreadlock.
  • On the results table after the Football trial in Heat C, Possession was misspelt as Possesion.
  • Before the arena stage of Heat F, Jeremy Clarkson listed Violence in place of Damage as a judging category.
  • Before activate was called in the Heat F battle between Skarab and The Blob, Jonathan Pearce said that The Blob weighed 68kg, when it was actually 73.9kg.
  • During the Grand Final fight, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly referred to Robot The Bruce as Robert the Bruce, the historical Scottish leader that its name plays on.

The Second WarsEdit

  • Tantrum's Gauntlet run in Heat B was not accompanied with any backing music.
  • Mick Cutter of Team Chaos was erroneously referred to by both Jonathan Pearce and Craig Charles as "Mike Cutter" throughout Heat B.
  • It was constantly stated, even by the team themselves, that Killertron had reached the Grand Final of the First Wars when it fell in the Heat Final.
  • Mortis was stated to have scored 100 points in the Pinball in the semi-finals, when in actuality it scored 75 points.
  • Jonathan Pearce incorrectly referred to Sir Killalot as "Killertron" shortly before the Grand Final match between Cassius and Roadblock.
  • Adam Clark was seen in the driving booth twice during the robot introductions in Heat F, when Corporal Punishment and The Parthian Shot drove out.

The Third WarsEdit

  • When Technophobic was introduced, it was said to have been eliminated in Round 1 of Series 2, despite reaching its heat final. It was also said to have appeared in the second heat of the Second Wars, despite it having appeared in the fifth heat of that series. Ironically, Technophonic appeared in the second heat of Series 3.
  • Oddly, the background music for the first battle of Heat B was the Robot Wars ending theme, rather than the usual battle theme.
  • Robocow's statistics board featured two errors; it claimed it was 6.6 metres wide, and the Notes section read "Has a wagging wooden tale", when "tail" would be the correct spelling.
  • Jonathan Pearce claimed that the name behemoth actually translates as "strong willed water-ox", when it actually merely translates as "any creature of monstrous size or power".
  • Jonathan Pearce erroneously referred to Agent Orange's predecessor Spin Doctor as a finalist, despite not even reaching its heat final.
  • Craig Charles incorrectly introduced the Middleweight Melee as the first round of the Middleweight Championship - it is unknown if this line was originally filmed for the Middleweight Championship.
  • A number of editing errors occurred in Aggrobot's battles against Razer and Blade in Heat C.
  • In the Heat C Final, Jonathan Pearce erroneously called Blade's team captain Josh Ainslie "John Ainslie".
  • During the end credits of Heat C, the battle theme was played instead of the ending theme.
  • In Heat G, Steg-O-Saw-Us was erroneously spelt as Steg-A-Saw-Us on the battle board. The correct spelling was used in both of its subsequent appearances.
  • After Sir Killalot is set ablaze in the match between Napalm and Robopig in Heat G, Jonathan Pearce says "that's the first time we've seen that in Robot Wars history", this being incorrect as Sgt Bash set fire to Sir Killalot in Robo Doc's Gauntlet run in Series 2.
  • Berserk 2 was misspelt as "Beserk 2".
  • Excalibur was incorrectly spelt as "Excaliber".
  • During the tour of the pits at the start of Heat K, Philippa Forrester incorrectly introduced Axios as Axiom. Also, she referred to Toe Cutter's blade as a spike.
  • During Craig Charles' introduction in Heat L, he mentions that Oliver Cromwell "had to gather an army to fight the Roundheads". Oliver Cromwell actually led the Roundheads into battle to fight against Charles I of England and his Cavaliers.
  • Robert Bettington of Cold Fusion Team had his name misspelt as "Robert Bittington" in the statistics board.
  • Prizephita's team members' names on its stat board were mistakenly shown as those from Rattus Rattus.
  • Cassius 2 's pneumatic ram was somewhat crudely described by Jonathan Pearce and its statistics board as a "flip-up paddle".
  • Jonathan Pearce claimed Psychokiller took two months to build, but the robot's statistics board said it took three months to build.
  • In the Series 3 recap, Jonathan Pearce said Gravedigger defeated Darke Destroyer in the second round and then Mortis in the Heat Final when it was the other way round. He also said Hypno-Disc defeated 101 in Round 1 of the semi-finals and Evil Weevil in Round 2 when it was the other way round. The latter statement was corrected later on.
  • When referring to Cold Fusion's past robot, Bodyhammer, Jonathan Pearce falsely stated that "it had no wheels".
  • On X-Terminator's statistics board, Marlon Pritchard's name was misspelt as "Marlen Pritchard".
  • Haydn James from Team General had his name misspelt as "Hayden James" on the robot's statistics board.
  • On Sting 2's statistics board, Pete Allsop had his name misspelt as "Pete Allsopp".
  • At the end of Heat H, Jonathan Pearce said that Mace 2, Pitbull, Blade, Big Brother, Chaos 2, Gravedigger, Steg-O-Saw-Us and Hypno-Disc would be competing in the first semi-final, but four of them actually competed in the second semi-final. Also, the clips from Heats C and D were reversed.
  • When reviewing Crusher in the tour of the pits at the start of Heat I, Philippa Forrester says "I don't think we've had a crusher yet so far" despite another robot with a crusher appearing earlier in the series.
  • While reviewing the line-up for the first round of Heat L, Jonathan Pearce calls Challenger 2 "Challenge 2" but then later calls it its proper name.
  • Even though Paul Johnson was part of the 101 team, his name was not present on the robot's statistics board. He appeared in 101's first two battles against Overkill and Centurion but did not appear in the Heat J Final, Semi-Final 2 or The First World Championship.
  • During the fight between Facet and Terminal Ferocity, the 'KillCam' graphics for Sir Killalot's onboard camera were superimposed onto Shunt's camera. Also, Sir Killalot wasn't present in that battle.
  • During Heat P, Jonathan Pearce mispronounced Twn Trwn's name (for example as Twin Trwin) but also pronounced it correctly at some points.
  • Stuart McDonald simply introduced Victor 2 as "Victor".
  • In Trident's team introduction, Stephen Benn refers to one of the two Peters as "Neil".
  • In the opening titles recap of Heat P, the clips from Heats M and N were reversed.
  • Chaos 2's statistics board referred to its weapon as a CO2 powered flip up, rather than flipper.
  • During Brimhur's Heat A first round battle against Weeliwako, Jonathan Pearce said "I think Brimhur is immobilised here. I think the motors must have been burnt out on the flame pit, and certainly Mace thinks so too" despite Mace 2 not being present during the battle.
  • On Trident's statistics board in Semi-Final 1, Peter Benn had two spaces in between his name.
  • At the start of Heat F, Philippa Forrester said Mortis cost thirty grand for that series but later after its defeat to Gravedigger, she said "forty grand down the pit".
  • An editing error in Semi-Final 1 showed Sir Killalot going towards the floor flipper with Mace 2 after facing away from it.
  • On the 'Weapons' section of Gravedigger's statistics board, 'hydraulic' was misspelt as 'hyraulic' in both of its appearances in Heat F and Semi Final 2.
  • In the list of all the robots that competed in Series 3, Darke Destroyer was misspelt as "Dark Destroyer" (also made in the Series 3 results section in Robot Wars: The Ultimate Guide).
  • When announcing the Sportsmanship Award, Plunderstorm was listed as Plunderbird but all the same, it was one of the Plunderbird incarnations after all.
  • After the first round of Heat D, the battle board for the second round said "Big Brother vs Sir Chromalot" and "Ultor vs Bumblebot", but later, it said "Sir Chromalot vs Big Brother" and "Bumblebot vs Ultor".
  • During the fight between All Torque and Thing 2, the camera cuts from All Torque beached below Shunt in Shunt's CPZ to All Torque trapped between Shunt and the Arena Wall, with Sergeant Bash having inexplicably appeared in the CPZ in less than one second.
  • Depoppesaurus Rex had its name spelt both in the correct way but also as 'Depopposaurus Rex' during the International League Championship.
  • A particularly curious piece of editing occurred in the International League Championship. During the battle between Terror Australis - or Nemesis, in reality - and Diotoir, the House Robots occupying the four CPZs were Matilda, Shunt, Sir Killalot and Dead Metal. However, once Terror Australis was pitted, the action then temporarily cut to a completely different battle - Diotoir's second round battle against The Steel Avenger from Heat O. For some reason, the viewers were then shown Sgt Bash setting Diotoir alight during that battle, which is identifiable, as the immobilised Steel Avenger is still in the shot. After a cutaway shot, the action then returns with Diotoir now alight, but with the House Robots that were actually present during its battle against Terror Australis. Because of this editing, it is also unknown how Diotoir actually caught fire in this particular battle in the International League Championship.
  • Jonathan Metcalfe's name was misspelt as "Jonathan Metcalf" on Anorakaphobia's statistics board.
  • During the Robotic Soccer match between Evil Weevil and Alien, Jonathan Pearce said Matilda lost one of her eyes when she instead lost one of her horns.
  • Before the battle between Chaos 2 and Firestorm, Graham Bone was seen holding the controls, but later Alex Mordue was holding them.
  • Terror Australis' statistics board in The First World Championship stated that it was powered by '2 wheelchair motors', armed with a 'spear, spikes and blades', and noted to have a working pressure of 1000psi, the latter presumably for the aforementioned weapons. These statistics are for the version of Nemesis which competed under its name in the International League Championship, not the original robot, which was powered by a 4hp petrol engine and armed with a circular saw and rear spikes. Jonathan Pearce's commentary and Terror Australis' team introduction correctly refer to the original robot's statistics, however.
  • At the end of The First World Championship, Team Razer was shown receiving the International League Championship trophy. The same clip of Razer's trophy presentation would later be reused for the International League Championship itself.
  • At the end of Razer's battle against Techno-Lease, Razer was seen gripping onto the arena rails, but was then seen in the arena a few inches away from Techno-Lease.
  • While Jonathan Pearce was reading through the eliminators for The First World Championship, the second eliminator originally said "Weld-Dor vs Prometheus", but later, it said "Prometheus vs Weld-Dor".
  • At the end of the opening titles recaps in some episodes, the ending theme stopped early.
  • Although it was a lightweight robot, Tentoumushi's factsheet displayed its weight as 52kg, which would have made it a middleweight. This was a decision by the Robot Wars production team. Its actual weight was 24kg.

The Fourth WarsEdit

Distruct
  • Stuart McDonald simply introduced Firestorm 2 as "Firestorm", Darke Destroyer 2 as "Darke Destroyer", Aggrobot 2 as "Aggrobot" and Oblivion 2 as "Oblivion" and also introduced The Morgue as "Morgue" and The Predator as "Predator".
  • In Heat B, when reviewing Razer's previous performances, a clip of it fighting Behemoth in the First World Championship final was shown as Jonathan Pearce described Razer's success in the International League Championship, and a clip of it fighting Diotoir in the International League Championship final was shown as he mentioned Razer's success in the First World Championship.
  • On Velocirippa's statistics board, the stats for the weapons says "Battering rams and & bumpers".
  • In Heat B, Stuart McDonald mispronounced Reptirron's name as 'Rep-tie-ron' during its introduction. Stefan Frank also made this same mistake while Alan Gribble mispronounced it differently.
  • Just before the Heat B Final took place, Julia Reed erroneously addressed Pussycat's driver, David Gribble, as "Robert".
  • In the first eliminator of Heat C, Jonathan Pearce mentioned Scar as having a srimech, despite Scar being invertible and clearly seen running inverted.
  • Scar's tech stats claims that it has three spinning discs although it only has one.
  • Before the second eliminator of Heat C, Jonathan referred to Diotoir's weapon as an "air-powered spike", when it was actually a spring-powered lifting arm.
  • During the battle between Firestorm 2 and Bolt from the Blue in Heat C, Jonathan Pearce said "we've already lost two seeds" when actually three seeds (King B3, Razer and Diotoir) had been eliminated up to this point.
  • Disc-O-Inferno's name was misspelt twice during its appearance in Heat E. It was spelt as 'Disco Inferno' on the team caption when Julia Reed introduced them, and 'Disc O Inferno' on the battle boards. However, the correct spelling was present on the robot's statistics board and throughout its subsequent appearance in the Celebrity Special.
  • Destruct-A-Bubble's name was misspelt as Distruct-A-Bubble on the Sumo leaderboard. This mistake was also made in the Series 4 results in Robot Wars: The Ultimate Guide, the original Robot Wars Magazine and the Official Sticker Collection.
  • Jonathan Pearce said Dartford Grammar School is in Essex though it is actually in Kent.
  • When introducing Cronos and reviewing its previous performance, Jonathan Pearce merely referred to Scutter's Revenge as "Scutter".
  • Mazakari was erroneously credited with Mortis' statistics during its introduction.
  • Killertron was said to have finished third in Series 2, when in fact it finished fourth. The third place play-off from that year in which it lost to Roadblock was even shown, but Jonathan Pearce mistakenly said that this was when Killertron was eliminated from the competition.
  • Prior to its eliminator in Heat J, Bigger Brother's statistics board referred to its weapon as a 'Steel Spike', when it was actually equipped with a pneumatic spiked flipper.
  • At the end of the aforementioned battle, when it cuts to Joe and Ian Watts in the control pod and a shot of the arena through the control pod, Clawed Hopper is seen on its back, but Dead Metal, who was attacking it, is nowhere to be seen.
  • When Hammer & Tong was being attacked by Sgt Bash, Sir Killalot and Shunt in its battle against Stinger in Heat J, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly said "Dead Metal in the middle" when Shunt was clearly in the middle and Dead Metal was not even present in the battle (Matilda was the other house robot in the battle).
  • In the Northern Annihilator, Suicidal Tendencies was credited as the 31st seed. It was in fact the 32nd seed, with Centurion being the real 31 seed.
  • Weld-Dor 2's seeding was not mentioned in its intro.
  • Luke Jackman only had his first name present on Spawn of Scutter's statistics board.
  • Despite being seeded 11th, Wild Thing was never announced as a seeded robot.
  • Kane Aston of the Behemoth team had his name misspelt in the statistics board as "Kane Ashton".
  • Both Jonathan Pearce and Julia Reed incorrectly stated that Steg-O-Saw-Us' run in Series 3 ended at the Semi-Final stage when it actually ended in the Grand Final. Jonathan repeated this mistake in the Semi-Final battle between Chaos 2 and Steg 2. However, in both of 3 Stegs to Heaven's appearances, he used the correct statement.
  • During Hypno-Disc's Pinball Warrior run, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly said that Sgt Bash was Shunt.
  • In the first melee of Heat G, Jonathan Pearce tells Kronic the Wedgehog to "get off the flipper" when Kronic was actually over the pit of oblivion at the time.
  • In the Northern Annihilator final, after Dominator 2 had broken down, Jonathan Pearce said it was on the floor flipper, when it was actually on the pit.
  • At the end of second round of the Southern Annihilator, Jonathan Pearce said "It's all happening in front of us in the Northern Annihilator" when it was actually the Southern Annihilator. The Northern Annihilator was the previous episode.
  • In the Fourth Wars recap, Shadow of Napalm was called Son of Napalm by Jonathan Pearce. It is unclear whether he misremembered the robot's name, or was making a colloquial reference to this being the successor to Napalm.
  • During the clips from the Heat I melee between Centurion, Splinter and Small Torque in the recap in the grand final, the battle theme was played over the original ending theme as well.
  • The clip of Chaos 2 in its introduction prior to its battle against Steg 2 in Semi-Final 1 is mirrored; both robots are facing left, the floor flipper is shown on the left-hand side of the arena inside of the right, and Chaos 2's name on the flipper cover is in reverse. Steg 2's introduction clip and clips of both robots before the battle begins are shown correctly, however.
  • Before the War of Independence battle between Mortis and Panic Attack, Mortis was on the left and Panic Attack was on the right, but seconds later, they had swapped places.
  • In the Tag Team Terror, X-Terminator 2 was mistakenly mentioned as coming from Hertford when it actually came from Hereford.
  • For some reason, the Stinger team caption did not appear at the bottom of the screen when Julia Reed introduced them in the pits in Heat J or before their eliminator in the heat although it did when Julia interviewed them in Semi-Final 2 and before their battle with Mousetrap in the episode and when she introduced them at the start of the Northern Annihilator.
  • Craig Charles mistakenly referred to Bigger Brother as Big Brother 2 while interviewing the team following their loss to Bulldog Breed 2. It was also mistakenly listed as the name in the list of all the robots that competed in Series 4 at the start of the Grand Final. Similarly, Craig mistakenly referred to it as Bigger Brother 2 in the Tag Team Terror, although he then referred to it by its correct name. Bigger Brother was also listed as Bigger Brother 2 in the results for the Fourth Wars Trials and Tag Team Terror in Robot Wars: The Ultimate Guide.
  • Before Steg 2 flipped Mortis in the Heat D Final, Jonathan Pearce wondered if Mortis could retrieve the axe and bring it down but he was actually meant to say the lifting arm which had got stuck upwards.
  • In the Heat D Final, right before Steg 2 pitted Mortis, the battle theme stopped early and the ‘Cease’ announcement was not heard after the pitting.
  • The 'ShuntCam' graphics for Shunt's onboard camera were superimposed onto Dead Metal's camera while he was attacking Wheely Big Cheese during the first round 1 battle in Heat H. They were also superimposed on Sir Killalot's camera in Heat K, when he carried Tiberius around the arena during its battle against Little Fly.
  • Lee Summers from Team Knightmare was referred to as Lee Summer by Jonathan Pearce after reading its statistics. However, afterwards and in every other series Team Knightmare fought in, Lee was referred to as his correct name.
  • Jonathan Pearce mistakenly said Behemoth lost to Pitbull in the Series 3 Heat Final after getting stuck on an arena spike when it was in fact flipped by the arena spike.
  • Perhaps mistakenly, in his poem at the end of Heat G, Craig Charles said "Throw our punches", as opposed to "Pull our punches" - meaning to hold back.
  • During the second round battle between S.M.I.D.S.Y. and Aggrobot 2 in Heat O, a shot of the audience and the arena before the start of the battle was briefly shown, before cutting back to a shot of Aggrobot 2 getting underneath S.M.I.D.S.Y..
  • In the list of all the robots that competed in Series 4, Attila the Drum was misspelt as Atilla the Drum, Disc-O-Inferno was misspelt as Disco Inferno, Inverterbrat was misspelt as Invertebrat, Darke Destroyer 2 was misspelt as Dark Destroyer 2, Clawed Hopper was misspelt as Clawd Hopper (also made on the Robot Wars Battle Card), Spikasaurus was misspelt as Spikeasaurus, Overkill GTI was simply listed as Overkill, Oblivion 2 was simply listed as Oblivion and The Predator was simply listed as Predator. Additionally, Saw Point was listed as Sawpoint (also made in the original Robot Wars Magazine).
  • Eli Kirkpatrick's name was not present on Thermidor 2's statistics board even though he was part of the team.
  • During the battle between Splinter and Killerhurtz, Jonathan Pearce referred to Splinter by its previous incarnation, Ivanhoe and also called the pit of oblivion the floor flipper.
  • When announcing the winner of the Best Newcomer award, Attila the Drum was misspelt as "Atilla the Drum".
  • After the first eliminator in Heat D, Jonathan Pearce said "No small step for Crusader and two. Steg 2 through".
  • When interviewing the Mazakari team after their defeat, Julia Reed said Shunt and Dead Metal had a go at it when Dead Metal actually attacked Iron-Awe and Mazakari had its back gripped by Sgt Bash.
  • On Suicidal Tendencies' statistics board, Charles Binns had his name misspelt as "Charled Binns".
  • Before their second round match against Sumpthing in Heat K, Julia Reed said that Mousetrap's trap mechanism was a flipper.
  • Nigel Paget's name was misspelt as "Nigel Pagett" on Knightmare's statistics board.
  • Before the first battle of Heat M of Series 4, Julia Reed said Steel Avenger's feather duster was at the front but it was actually at the back.
  • While reviewing Wild Thing's previous performance, Jonathan Pearce referred to All Torque as its successor Small Torque.
  • Dave Lang had his name misspelt as Dave Long on Kronic the Wedgehog's statistics board.
  • In the second melee of Heat G, Jonathan Pearce said Darke Destroyer 2 had its eyes on the back, rather than the front.
  • After Weld-Dor 2 stopped moving, Jonathan Pearce said it was a new robot despite its predecessor appearing in the previous series. However, Jonathan mentioned that Weld-Dor was knocked out by King Buxton in Round 2 of the last series shortly afterwards.
  • On Steg 2's analysis sheet in the American version of Heat D, Dimensions was incorrectly spelt "Rimensions".
  • Shadow of Napalm's statistics board listed its weapon as a "Large Lifting Spike", completing ignoring its lifting mechanism. Its real weapons were a lifting mechanism and a large spike at the rear, which was static.
  • The image of Wheelosaurus on the team caption in Heat H was mirrored.
  • Before Prizephita MK 2’s previous performance was reviewed, the Robot Wars ending theme played for a split second.
  • During the battle between Aggrobot 2, Oblivion 2 and Saw Point in Heat O, Jonathan Pearce said "There's the little spike. Do you see that out of the front there of Aggrobot?" when the spike was actually at the back.
  • When Mousetrap was being attacked by the House Robots in its battle against Stinger, Jonathan Pearce mentioned it defeated Tiberius, despite the fact both those robots defeated Evil Weevil together to qualify, and Tiberius was defeated by Little Fly.
  • Following Hypno-Disc's loss to Pussycat in the Grand Final Dave Rose once referred to Shunt's CPZ as the 'PPZ'.
  • In Detonator's Series 1 recap, shown before its War of Independence battle against frenZy, Jonathan Pearce stated that Detonator became stuck on an arena spike during its Gauntlet run, when one of its own side spikes actually got caught on the turntable.
  • In Heat O, Jon Leach from Team Aggrobot had his first name misspelt as 'John' on the robot's statistics board.
  • Despite Lee Ainscough being replaced by Andrew Pearson for Spikasaurus’ appearance in the Northern Annihilator, the Team Members section on Spikasaurus’ statistics board for that episode remained the same.
  • Tony Knapp was not present for Attila the Drum's appearance in the Southern Annihilator, with his place being taken by Helen Thorpe. However, the Team Members section on Attila the Drum's statistics board was not changed for that episode.
  • Clare Greenaway had her name misspelt as Clare Greenway on Detonator's statistics board.

Robot Wars ExtremeEdit

  • Ahead of the Challenge Belt battle between Behemoth and The Steel Avenger in Episode 1, The Steel Avenger was stated to have gone out in round 1 in both of the previous wars (Series 3 and 4), when in reality it went out in the second round and heat final respectively.
  • The footage of X-Terminator entering the arena in its Vengeance in Episode 2 was of the newer Series 5 model, not the older X-Terminator 2 model with a spike fitted that actually fought the battle.
  • Prior to the Vengeance battle between X-Terminator and Panic Attack, Jonathan Pearce said that Panic Attack had reached the semi-final stage of the UK Championships on two previous occasions when it had actually made it to that stage in The Second Wars, The Third Wars and The Fourth Wars. However, it is true that Panic Attack fell at the semi-final stage on two occasions.
    • Unusually, no House Robot stat boards were shown before the aforementioned battle, although Dead Metal and Sir Killalot were clearly present in their CPZs when the battle started. It was also the only ever time where no House Robot stat boards were shown before a battle.
  • Curiously, the statistics listed for the Extreme 1 version of Maximill were those of the Dutch Series 1 version.
  • In the replay of Firestorm and Panic Attack's Series 3 battle before their All-Stars battle in Episode 3, Jonathan Pearce mistakenly refers to Alex Mordue as Graham Bone.
  • Before the All-Stars battle between Razer and Gemini, Jonathan Pearce said Chaos 2, Wheely Big Cheese and Hypno-Disc had already gone through. He was right about Chaos 2 and Wheely Big Cheese, but he was wrong about Hypno-Disc as Hypno-Disc lost to Behemoth in the first round.
  • At two points during the first Tag Team Terror Semi-Final, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly referred to Suicidal Tendencies as its teammate Steel Avenger.
  • King B Powerworks was constantly referred to as King B3. It was only referred to by its proper name a few times. It was referred to by its proper name in Series 5.
  • The picture of Matilda on the House Robot stat board in Episode 10 was from the American series instead of the UK series.
  • After Tornado got flipped by the floor flipper in the Mayhem in Episode 10, Jonathan Pearce said "and away they go, on the flipper floor" instead of "floor flipper".
  • After the All-Stars quarter-final fight between Pussycat and Tornado (and Sir Killalot's unfortunate incident), Craig Charles says that he has never seen Sir Killalot catch fire before. The thing is, Sir Killalot had caught fire three times before - once in Series 2 (it was Sgt Bash's fault) and twice in Series 3, when he got too close to the flame pit in Heat G and when Sgt Bash set him on fire in Oblivion 2's Pinball run.
  • The stats for Sir Killalot in the Challenge Belt battle between Tornado and Wild Thing were shown as those from the American series.
  • Throughout Episode 5, the Extreme Warriors/Nickelodeon series 'Cease' announcement was heard at the end of every battle instead of the usual UK version.
  • Before the Mayhem battle in Episode 4, Jonathan Pearce claimed Killertron was "twice a Grand Finalist", when it only reached the Grand Final once.
  • Stuart McDonald simply introduced Arnold A. Terminegger as "Arnold Terminegger" and Aggrobot 3 as “Aggrobot” as well as mispronouncing Flensburger Power as Flensburg Power.
  • Before the last first round Tag Team Terror battle, Steve Merrill from Sir Chromalot said "We're going to do damage to Steel Lego and Suicidal Meccano." However, when Julia Reed interviewed the Steel Avenger and Suicidal Tendencies teams, she said he called them Steel Meccano and Suicidal Lego.
  • Before the first round of the first Annihilator, Jonathan Pearce said that Marlon Pritchard and Paul Lewis were present for Team X-Terminator, when Simon Baldwin was there instead of the latter.
  • During the second Annihilator, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly refers to Disc-O-Inferno as Hypno-Disc.
  • During the All-Stars semi final clash between Chaos 2 and Tornado, Jonathan Pearce says "could this be a first ever defeat for Chaos 2?" when it had previously been defeated twice in the First World Championship and Northern Annihilator.
  • During The Second World Championship, Jonathan Pearce kept stating that events that would happen later in the episode happened in The First World Championship; he claimed that Chaos 2 went out in round 1, when it reached the quarter-finals, that Diotoir fell in round 1, when it reached the semi-finals, that Firestorm fell in round 1, when it never actually competed, and that Tornado reached the semi-final when it hadn't even entered Robot Wars at the time.
  • Jonathan Pearce stated that Razer was the quickest robot in its Second World Championship heat, despite The Revolutionist being 4mph faster.
  • Despite adding a self-righting mechanism, Cerberus's weakness was listed as "No self-righting mechanism".
  • Philipper was misspelt as Philliper on its statistics board.
  • In the Second World Championship semi-final battle between Razer and Tornado, Jonathan Pearce said that Tornado were struggling to get their spinning drum into play, when they had the scoop on for the battle.
  • The clip used for the third round of the first Annihilator when Hypno-Disc entered the arena is in fact taken from the second round. X-Terminator, which was eliminated in that round, is visible in a wide shot.
  • Jonathan Pearce frequently credited Plunderbird 5 as having tracks, even though it ran on wheels and was the only Plunderbird model not to have tracks. He would make the same claim again in Series 5.
  • In the second Tag Team Terror semi-final, Sir Killalot is seen in the bottom left of the screen, but Matilda and Shunt were the actual house robots in the battle.
  • During the post-battle interview after Chaos 2 beat X-Terminator in the first round of the All-Stars, Craig Charles said to George Francis that he'd never seen Chaos 2 lose a battle, even though the two-time UK champion was defeated by Razer in The First World Championship and was beaten in the first round of the Northern Annihilator - both defeats occurring during Craig's tenure.
  • The music usually played over the House Robots' statistics boards was also played over the competitors' statistics boards prior to the Tag Team Terror battle in Episode 2.
  • Before the battle, Jonathan Pearce stated that King B Powerworks and 101 were the reigning Tag Terror champions when he should have said the reigning Tag Team Terror champions.
  • Just before the start of the Middleweight Championship battle in the same episode, the 'Roboteers Standby!' announcement was heard twice - once in a close-up of the participating teams, and again just as Matilda's statistics board was shown.
    • Also prior to the Middleweight Championship battle, no background music was played as the House Robots' statistics boards were being shown.
  • In Episode 6, during the first round Tag Team Terror battle involving Thermidor 2, Cerberus, S.M.I.D.S.Y. and Sumpthing, Jonathan Pearce said that Thermidor 2 and S.M.I.D.S.Y. were on the Floor Flipper, when the two robots in question were over the pit and Drop Zone square respectively.
    • Additionally, Thermidor 2 is simply referred to as 'Thermidor' on the battleboard shown immediately before and after the aforementioned battle. However, its full name is still shown on the battle board seen at the start of Episode 6.
  • During the robots' introductions for the Mayhem in Episode 13, Comengetorix was first to appear in the arena, and then Disc-O-Inferno entered the arena with Velocirippa still in the door way. However, after Disc-O-Inferno entered the arena, it then cut to Velocirippa in the arena and therefore being the first robot introduced in the battle.
  • Velocirippa's statistics board in Extreme Series 1 listed its weapon as "Spinning Discs" despite it only having one cutting disc. Similarly, its statistics board in Series 5 listed its weapon as "Spikes and Rotating Discs", once again despite the fact it only had one cutting disc.
  • Craig Charles introduced the Featherweight championship fight between RC Warrior and Beef-Cake as a Lightweight battle.
  • When interviewing the Comengetorix and Spawn Again teams before their Tag Team Terror battle in Episode 5, Julia Reed incorrectly introduced Team Scutterbots' new machine by the robot that preceded it - Spawn of Scutter.
  • During the Mayhem between Pussycat, Sumpthing and S.M.I.D.S.Y., Jonathan Pearce referred to Alan Gribble as the driver of Pussycat, when in reality, David Gribble was.
  • Ed Hoppitt had his name misspelt as Ed Hoppit on Suicidal Tendencies' statistics board. Also, despite his name being present on the robot's statistics board, he was not actually present for the Suicidal Tendencies team in Extreme 1, with Martin Jeffery being present instead. This error was reversed for Suicidal Tendencies' appearance in Series 5.
  • In the Flipper Frenzy, Jonathan Pearce said Chaos 2 had never been beaten although it previously lost to Razer in the quarter-finals of the First World Championship and went out in the first round of the Fourth Wars Northern Annihilator.
  • Thermidor 2 was simply referred to as 'Thermidor' on the battle board shown in the rundown of battles at the start of Episode 15.
  • Ciarán Byrne of Diotoir had his name misspelt as Cairon Byrne on the robot's statistics board before its first round All-Stars battle against Wheely Big Cheese. This was corrected in all of Diotoir's other Extreme 1 appearances and its Series 5 appearance.
  • During the semi-finals of the All-Stars, the clips used of the four robots entering the arena are actually those from the quarter-finals. As a result, Firestorm is shown entering with polka-dot fur.

The Fifth WarsEdit

Juggernot2stats

Juggernot 2's stat board

Shredder Stats

Shredder's stat board.

"Crushtacen"

"Crushtacen", Most Promising Newcomer nominee.

  • Upon entering the arena, Stuart McDonald introduced Storm Force as "Storm". It was also referred to as that name in the Series 5 results in Robot Wars: The Ultimate Guide and the original Robot Wars Magazine.
  • Juggernot 2's statistics board claimed it was armed with an axe, however, only Juggernot 2's predecessor featured an axe weapon.
    • Juggernot 2's official image was also sideways on its stat board.
  • In Heat C, the introductions for Stinger, Plunderbird 5 and Mousetrap in their round 1 battles were taken from Robot Wars Extreme: Series 1. Stinger's came from its All-Stars battle against Pussycat, Plunderbird 5's from its Vengeance battles and Mousetrap's from its Mayhem qualifier.
  • Shredder's official image was terribly cropped on its stat board. It also said its weapon was a spinning disc when it had two spinning discs and team member Christopher Organ had his name misspelt as "Christopher Orga".
  • S3 was continually referred to as a newcomer, despite its team having fought in two previous series with Sting; Philippa Forrester claimed they were "rookies", Craig Charles called them "the new kids on the block" and S3 was even nominated for the Most Promising Newcomer Award at the end of the series. Vincent Blood from Razer made the same mistake on the Razer DVD.
  • The Series 5 stat sheet for S3 mistakenly displayed its weight as 100kg when it was actually 90kg. This is proven in Series 6, when Ian Pritchard stated that the robot was 'another 8kg heavier than in Series 5'. As S3 weighed 98kg in Series 6, the robot having a weight of 100kg in Series 5 would be impossible, as this would make the Series 6 incarnation 2kg lighter.
  • When Jonathan Pearce was reading through the Round 1 line-up for Heat E, he did not read through it sequentially and also failed to mention Trouble 'N' Strife.
  • In Napalm 2's introduction, Philippa Forrester stated that the team were competing with 'pretty much the same robot that they had last year.' However, this is incorrect, as Napalm did not compete in Series 4, with Dartford Girls Grammar instead competing with Shadow of Napalm. Philippa said the same about Velocirippa by saying it looked the same despite it replacing its static spikes with a cutting disc and changing its colour from green to blue.
  • Stuart McDonald simply introduced Napalm 2 as Napalm.
  • When Napalm 2 was being introduced in the heat, Jonathan mentioned that this was their fourth attempt at Robot Wars, when it was actually their fifth.
  • Strangely, Thermidor 2's weakness on its statistics board was listed as "Experienced Competitors", a statement that would usually be considered a strength, instead of "Fragile Shell" as it had been during the first series of Robot Wars Extreme.
  • Jonathan Pearce claimed at the start of Heat J that Panic Attack won Series 3, when it actually won the series before, Series 2. However, he made the correct claim later in the episode.
  • Stuart McDonald introduced Tiberius 2 as Tiberus 2.
  • After speaking to the 13 Black team, Craig Charles mistakenly called them Black 13. It was also referred to as that name in the original Robot Wars Magazine.
  • When the "Most Promising Newcomer" Award nominations were listed, Crushtacean was misspelt as Crushtacen.
  • Before the Heat A second round match between Chaos 2 and Steel Avenger, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly stated that George Francis reached the Grand Final of Series 2 when he actually reached the Grand Final of Series 1.
  • During the match between Widow's Revenge and Sumpthing in Heat K, Jonathan Pearce said that Gillie Blood was "Vinnie's missus", when she was actually Vincent Blood's sister and Ian Lewis' fiancée.
  • At two points in Heat J, Philippa Forrester referred to Mini Morg as Mega Morg.
  • In the recap in the Grand Final, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly claimed that Chaos 2 defeated The Tartan Terror in Round 1, despite The Tartan Terror's opponent The Steel Avenger being visible in the clip. Chaos 2 defeated Storm Force in Round 1.
  • Before their battle against Derek, Jonathan Pearce said that Elliot Smart was amongst the Dominator 2 team members, when in reality, Paul Tolliday was present instead. This was corrected before their battle between King B Powerworks when Jonathan said Paul Tolliday, Peter Halloway and Chris Hall were present.
  • In the second semi-final, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly states that Team Firestorm had been with Robot Wars since the First Wars.
  • During its battle against Kliptonite, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly states that Major Tom lost in the first round of the Fourth Wars, when it actually lost in the second round against 101.
  • In both semi-finals and the heat final of Heat L, no background music was played as the competitor robots entered the arena and when it went to their team introductions before the semi-finals.
  • A strange piece of editing happened in the Heat B Final. After Bulldog Breed 3 was pitted by Hypno-Disc, it was then shown on top of the pit which was closed and was next to Refbot.
  • In Velocirippa's battle against The Alien in Heat E, Jonathan Pearce said it "lost in its heat in Series 4 to Razer" despite Razer not winning its Series 4 heat and it actually happened in the heat eliminator.
  • Before the line-up for the Heat F Final came up, the skull and crossbones symbol disappeared from X-Terminator's name.
  • Before the Heat G Final, a shot of the audience overlooking the arena was briefly shown.
  • Suicidal Tendencies' introduction for its battle against Rick in Heat K was taken from the Extreme 1 Tag Team Terror final. Dead Metal is visible when Suicidal Tendencies appears in the arena, but Dead Metal did not appear in the Extreme 1 Tag Team Terror final.

The Sixth WarsEdit

Cyrax

Cyrax, painted blue.

  • At the beginning of Heat A, Craig Charles says that Razer crushed Chaos 2's hopes in the last series even though they did not fight each other that series, presumably referring more broadly to the fact Chaos 2 lost its title that year.
  • Jonathan Pearce said Mr Psycho weighed 600kg and Growler weighed 420kg when they actually weighed 750kg and 375kg respectively. Despite this, his claim that they weighed 'over 1000 kilos between them' was still accurate.
  • In Heat A, Jonathan Pearce kept stating that Cyrax was purple when it was clearly blue.
  • Jack Eastham from the Cedric Slammer team was incorrectly referred to as "Jack Barber".
  • In the first Round 1 battle of Heat B, Jonathan Pearce stated that Barbaric Response had been pinned against an angle grinder, when it had actually been pushed into the pit release button by Spirit of Scorpion.
  • Jonathan Pearce claimed that the second Round 1 battle of Heat B marked the first occasion where both of the qualifying robots (Firestorm 4 and Mega Hurts 2) ended up in the pit. However, this had also happened in Heat H of Series 4, in which Wheely Big Cheese and Wheelosaurus progressed despite being pitted along with the loser Prizephita Mk 2.
  • When introducing Shredder in Heat D, Jonathan Pearce claimed it had "beaten good machines such as Mousetrap in the past", when not only did Shredder lose to Mousetrap, but the robot and the team had not won a battle at that point. He later corrected himself, mentioning how Mousetrap beat Shredder in Series 5 whilst commentating on the Round 2 match against The Alien and the clip of Shredder driving into the pit was shown during Shredder's post-battle interview.
  • Jonathan Pearce said S3 only lost to Razer in Series 5, but S3 lost to Bigger Brother in the Series 5 semi-finals and then won the Losers' Melee. It was after winning the Losers' Melee that S3 lost to Razer as Razer then beat Bigger Brother to win Series 5.
  • When introducing Wild Thing in Heat E, Jonathan Pearce referred to the Adams Family as having been a Semi-Finalist on two occasions, when it actually reached that stage in the previous three series. This was corrected in the first Semi-Final.
  • Craig Charles erroneously referred to Stinger as Stinger 3 following its Heat F final against 13 Black.
  • Terror-Bull was twice labelled as a new robot in Heat G, its previous appearance in Series 4 being completely ignored.
  • An editing error in the first battle of said heat showed Dead Metal in two different CPZs.
  • Despite having no srimech, Panic Attack's weakness was listed as "Slow self-righting". Jonathan Pearce made this same claim as well.
  • Hypno-Disc's seeding was not stated when it entered the arena.
  • Before the Heat K first round melee between Hypno-Disc, Granny's Revenge 2, 4x4 and Barber-Ous 2, Sergeant Bash and Sir Killalot were briefly shown occupying the same CPZ due to an editing error.
    • Growler is also briefly shown in the background during Sergeant Bash's introduction for that battle, only for Sergeant Bash to occupy his CPZ during Sir Killalot's introduction. It then immediately cuts to Barber-Ous 2 occupying Sergeant Bash's CPZ just before 'activate' is called.
  • Razer's stat board incorrectly referred to the vertical crusher as a 'spike'.
  • In the second round battle between Dominator 2 and S.M.I.D.S.Y. in Heat J, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly said "just seen there, Chris Hall" when the camera actually showed Paul Tolliday at the controls. He repeats this mistake in the semi-final first round match between Dominator 2 and Bigger Brother by saying "Chris Hall at the controls of Dominator 2".
  • During the replay of Growler's unbelievable smash into Dominator 2 and S.M.I.D.S.Y., the background music changed when it wasn't supposed to.
  • After the battle between S3 and Dantomkia, the battle board showed it came before the battle between Firestorm 4 and 13 Black when it was the other way round. This was also made in the Sixth Wars League Table in the first issue of the second edition of the Robot Wars Magazine.
  • Craig Charles misquoted Chaos 2 as the fourth seed while interviewing the Dantomkia team after their loss to Razer.
  • In Semi-Final 2, an editing error during the Losers' Melee showed Mr Psycho and Sir Killalot in the same CPZ.
  • Whenever it appeared, Stuart McDonald would incorrectly pronounce Dantomkia.
  • During the battle between Razer and Cyrax in Heat A, Jonathan Pearce said Razer were World Champions in 2000 and 2001. Although he was correct about 2001, as that was the year when The Second World Championship was filmed, his earlier statement is incorrect, as The First World Championship was actually filmed in 1999. The only trophy Razer won in 2000 was the Fourth Wars Southern Annihilator.
  • When Firestorm 4 was introduced in Heat B, Jonathan Pearce said only Razer beat it in the last series. Though Razer was the one to defeat Firestorm 3 last, it did previously lose to Hypno-Disc in the first round of the semi-finals.
  • When talking about Hot Pants in Heat H, Jonathan Pearce said that the team's previous entry - Panda Monium, was defeated by Napalm in Series 3, when this actually occurred in Series 2.
  • When Comengetorix's lifting arm snapped in half in its second round clash with Hydra in Heat J, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly stated that Comengetorix's axe mechanism had broken instead.
  • The clip of Spawn Again entering the arena in the Losers' Melee in Semi-Final 2 is actually from its previous battle with Terrorhurtz.
  • Before Comengetorix's battle against Hydra, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly stated that Tom Curtis-Horsefall was present in the team's booth, when in reality, Tom's last appearance was in Extreme 1, and Bradley Jennings was present in The Sixth Wars instead.
  • In the introduction of Heat I, Craig Charles mentioned that 13 Black and S3 were "new bots on the block", despite them both having previously competed in Series 5 and the 13 Black team previously competed in Series 2 with Limpet while the S3 team competed in Series 2-3 with Sting.
  • During the second melee in Heat I, Jonathan Pearce said that Team Hurtz had fallen in the heat on three previous occasions. However, Killerhurtz failed to make it out of its heat in Series 2, Series 3 and Series 4, while Terrorhurtz was knocked out by Fluffy in Series 5.
  • While describing the damage caused to their robot after the melee in the heat, the Sabretooth team mistakenly referred to Terrorhurtz as its predecessor Killerhurtz.

Robot Wars Extreme 2Edit

  • Graham Bone stated during the All-Stars that Firestorm had never fought Bigger Brother, when it was the second meeting between the two robots.
  • During the recap of the battle between Tornado and Bigger Brother, Jonathan Pearce mistakenly called Bigger Brother “Big Brother”.
  • When Hypno-Disc entered the arena in the All-Stars, Jonathan Pearce claimed they had twice reached the Grand Final, when they had actually reached three Grand Finals. He used the correct statement in the Challenge Belt.
  • In the second melee of Heat B of the All-Stars when Growler was shown as a house robot, Shunt was behind when the other house robot was Sgt Bash.
  • Before both of Dominator 2's All Star battles, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly says that Paul Tolliday is present in the team booth, when in reality, Chris Hall is.
  • In the fourth battle in the Minor Meltdown, Jonathan Pearce mistakenly stated that Bigger Brother had defeated Razer in the past.
  • Stuart McDonald mispronounced Sir Chromalot as Sir Chompalot in the Challenge Belt.
  • Firestorm 4 was shown with the United Kingdom flag instead of an English flag in the Commonwealth Carnage.
  • Neither Mini Morg or Velocirippa were introduced fully in their Tag Team Terror first round battles, with Mini Morg only being mentioned by name, and Velocirippa not even being announced at all.
  • In the Annihilator, Jonathan Pearce mistakenly said Thermidor 2 had never been beyond the heats when it actually reached the semi-finals in Series 4.
  • In the University Challenge, C.V. was labeled as a newcomer despite appearing in the first series of Robot Wars Extreme.
  • Behemoth's scoop was referred to as a 'flipper' on its statistics board in both the Iron Maidens and University Challenge.
  • PulverizeR was shown behind the Irish flag, instead of the Dutch flag after losing to Razer in the European Championship.
  • At the end of the first Middleweight fight, Craig Charles calls Steel Sandwich Steel Sandwich Jnr.
  • In the Robot Rampage, Jonathan Pearce was incorrect with his claim that the clusterbot rules had been revised. The 50% rule never applied to clusterbots below the heavyweight class.
  • Half of Saw Point's stats were the same as A-Kill's.
  • When Maximus is introduced in the second round of its New Blood Heat A fight with Roobarb, the picture behind the team shows an image of Firestorm instead of Maximus.

The Seventh WarsEdit

  • During its first round battle in Heat A, Pussycat was stated to have been with Robot Wars since the very first day - this fact only being incorrect for the robot itself, but also for Team Cold Fusion in general, as none of the original members started after the first four wars and Pussycat did not enter the first two wars, rather it was Bodyhammer.
  • When Big Nipper's profile closed in Heat B, no noise was heard.
  • After the second melee in Heat B, the board displaying the results wrongly showed that Killerkat, rather than Gyrobot, had qualified along with Jackson Wallop. Jonathan Pearce's commentary made the same remark.
  • Lightning's statistics board incorrectly displayed its specifications from the time of Robot Wars Extreme: Series 2.
  • Leveller 2's statistics board featured a spelling error, causing it to be known as 'Leveler 2'.
  • Tomahawk's statistics board misspelled the robot as 'Tomohawk'.
  • While introducing Sawpoint 2 in Heat E, Jonathan Pearce claimed that it debuted in Series 6 and lost in the first round, despite Team A-Kill's original version of Saw Point failing to qualify for Series 6 at all. Saw Point lost in the first round of the Extreme 2 Minor Meltdown, while the team's other Series 6 entry, A-Kill, reached the second round.
  • At the start of Heat H, Jonathan Pearce claimed Ming Dienasty was fighting "three newcomers to UK Robot Wars" - while Ceros was a newcomer, and Scraptosaur was new to the UK series, Metalis came from an experienced team that fought in three previous UK championships.
  • When Scraptosaur entered the arena in the heat, Jonathan Pearce claimed it had once reached a Semi-Final in Dutch Robot Wars. Scraptosaur actually reached the Grand Final in Dutch Series 2, as there were no Semi-Finals in the format for the Dutch series.
  • Jonathan Pearce kept pronouncing Ceros as "Seer-ros" during the round 1 battle, but later pronounced it correctly from Round 2 onwards.
  • Storm 2's stats show it has interchangeable weapons, whereas Tornado's weapons only say it has a 'chain flail'
  • Stuart McDonald did not state Bulldog Breed's seed when it entered the arena in Heat K, though Jonathan Pearce did mention it. However, he did state Bulldog Breed's seed when it entered the arena in the first semi-final.
  • Whenever he appeared, Jonathan Pearce would state that Growler was the fastest House Robot. In actual fact, Cassius Chrome was the fastest House Robot.
  • Just before activate was called in the second melee of Heat D, the participating robots from the first melee were shown instead.
  • An editing error before the first battle of Heat F showed Sgt Bash and Shunt in the same CPZ, through roughly the same shot.
  • Jonathan Pearce incorrectly states in the Series 7 All-Stars special that Pussycat reached five heat finals - this fact being incorrect not only for the robot itself, but also for Cold Fusion Team in general, as they did not reach the heat final in Series 2, did not enter in Series 6, and were knocked out by M2 in the second round of The Seventh Wars.
  • During the third round 1 battle in the Third World Championship, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly said Tornado defeated Razer to win The Seventh Wars when it was actually the Sixth Wars (Typhoon 2 won The Seventh Wars and Razer did not even enter The Seventh Wars).
  • In the first semi-final, when Jayne Middlemiss was telling the Tornado team who they were up against in the first round, Andrew Marchant accidentally called Raging Knightmare "Raging Reality". Raging Reality was Team Knightmare's robot from the Sixth Wars. They retired that robot and built Raging Knightmare for the Seventh Wars.
  • Jonathan Pearce made an error in the commentary for the Heat G Final regarding Atomic. He claimed that it reached the Heat Final of Series 3 and was beaten by Hypno-Disc in Series 4. It actually reached the Heat Final of Series 4 and was beaten by Hypno-Disc in Series 5.
  • At the end of Heat C, when it shows you who is competing in the next episode, Jonathan Pearce incorrectly said 13 Black was seeded 3rd when it was actually seeded 7th. Similarly, in the World Championship qualifier in Heat O, he said it was seeded 13th.
  • When Mighty Mouse entered the arena for its first round melee in Heat J, Jonathan Pearce stated that they had "previously fought in the tag team, but never alone", which is incorrect, as Trevor Wright's machine reached the second round of The Sixth Wars.
  • G2 was referred to as "Cheese 2" in the Featherweight Championship due to a scripting error.
  • In Heat F, Jayne Middlemiss incorrectly says in the pre-match interview with X-Terminator that the team have competed in Robot Wars since the Fourth Wars. Oddly, the team acknowledges her statement.
  • An editing error in the Heat O Final showed the Drop Zone suspending a TV before it dropped a cooker on Iron-Awe 2.1.
  • In Heat F, Stuart McDonald incorrectly pronounces Tsunami as "Tuss-ami".
  • In Heat H, Stuart McDonald incorrectly introduces Mega Hurts LT as Mega Hurts Limited, the LT in fact standing for laptop.
  • On Mantis' stats board, Jonathan Leversedge's name was incorrectly spelt as "Lonathan Levereidge".
  • In Heat L, when Crushtacean was introduced in its first round melee, Jonathan Pearce said it was through to the World Final, when Crushtacean was really through to the World Championships, not the World Final.
  • Just before the second commercial break of said episode, Jonathan Pearce said the second round 2 battle was going to be between UFO and Judge Shred 2 when it was actually Judge Shred 3. However, after the break, he did correct himself.
  • Stuart McDonald did not state Storm 2's seed in the Grand Final but did in the Third World Championship.
  • During Steel Avenger's first round battle, Jonathan Pearce said it had been around for a long time and was beaten a couple of times by Chaos 2 when it was only beaten once by Chaos 2.
  • When introducing The Stag, Jonathan Pearce said that they had failed to get out of the first round in two previous attempts, when they had only appeared once previously - in Robot Wars: The Sixth Wars.
  • On Aggrobot's statistics board, Jon Leach was listed as "Joy Leach".
  • During the introduction of the House Robots in the battle between Thermidor 2 and The Kraken in Heat J, Cassius Chrome is shown to have a left black eye instead of a right black eye. This was due to the fact that the camera was on a reverse angle, as it usually is in other House Robot introductions.
  • Jonathan Pearce referred to Gi-Ant-O's spinning blade as a 'sideways flipper' prior to the Heat M Featherweight battle. He later corrected this error during the battle itself.
    • In Sir Killalot's introduction for the same battle, he was shown outside his CPZ, and smoke from the Pit was visible behind him before the battle had even started. This introduction is used other times across Series 7, with the clip itself originating from when Sir Killalot pitted General Carnage 2 during its Series 5, Heat C battle against Stinger.
  • Ewe 2's statistics board in the Annihilator still listed Tony Tobbell as part of the team even though Daniel Lockhart was there instead of him.
  • Even though Michael Pritchard was not present for the Behemoth team in this series, his name was still listed as part of the team on the robot's statistics board.
  • Clips from Heat B were shown in the opening titles for Heat K and Heat O.
  • Jeroen van Lieverloo only had his first name present on Gravity's statistics board.
  • In the post-battle interview after the second first round melee in the All-Stars championship, Stuart Barnwell of Team Cold Fusion referred to King B Powerworks by its previous name, King B3.
  • In Series 7, Jonathan Pearce stated that Big Nipper had an interchangeable scoop along with its lifter/crusher; however, this weapon was never actually used for any of its televised battles in that series.
  • In Heat L's introduction sequence, footage from Heat I was also shown.
  • At the start of The Third World Championship, as Jonathan Pearce was mentioning the competing robots, he mentioned Typhoon 2 was representing Scotland, although it was shown behind the United Kingdom flag on the battle board.

Series 8Edit

  • In Episode 2, before the head-to-head battle between Thor and Foxic, Angela Scanlon stated that Thor was not yet through to the heat final. However, the previous results meant it would have been impossible for two robots to finish ahead of it in the league table.
  • In the same battle, Jonathan Pearce claimed that Foxic featured "lithium polymer armament". Not only is this an incorrect use of the term armament, but it is Foxic's batteries that are lithium-powered, not its armour.
Thor axe cropped

Thor's statistics board in Series 8. Note the inaccurate weight and the partially-cropped axe head

  • Thor's statistics board listed its weight as 110kg. This is an error, as Thor's weight varies between 105kg and 108kg depending on what axe heads and front plates it uses.
    • The turntable image used for Thor's statistics board is also cropped in such a way that its axe head disappears as it is being rotated.
  • In Episode 2, Jonathan Pearce stated that Thor had been fighting for fifteen years during its Head to Head against M.R. Speed Squared. However, when excluding Team Thor’s earlier machines Monkey Nuts and Dorkus, which failed to qualify for Series 4 and 5, and taking into consideration Thor’s hiatus from live events between 2004-2007, Thor has actually spent a total of eleven years in robot combat starting from its Series 6 debut.
  • Terror Turtle's statistics board listed its combined weight, with its clusterbot The Hatchling, as 110kg. This is an error, as Terror Turtle's combined weight is 107.5kg (86kg + 21.5kg).
  • When the battle between Storm 2 and Eruption was sent to a judges' decision, Jonathan Pearce erroneously referred to the criteria as style, damage and aggression instead of control, damage and aggression.
  • TR2's statistics board in the Grand Final stated its weapon as being a 'Pneumatic Axe', ignoring the flipper and despite its rear axe being removed for the Final. This error was not present on TR2's statistics board during its appearance in Episode 3.
  • Dead Metal's statistics incorrectly state that his saw is 4500mm wide, which would be impossible due the size of the head Dead Metal has.
  • Sometimes a House Robot would appear but there would be no introduction for them, for example, Matilda appeared in the Grand Final but was not given an introduction.
  • In the Grand Final, during the Round 2 fight between Thor and Carbide, Jonathan Pearce said "That, Thor thus far have not come up against a spinner" despite facing DisConstructor and M.R. Speed Squared in its heat, as well as Pulsar in the first round of the Grand Final. Not only that, but Thor was also formerly put up against Revolution 2 and Cedric Slammer in previous wars.
  • Apollo's statistics board stated that it is from Birmingham, whilst the website correctly states it is from Prestatyn in North Wales. Beast was also referred to as from Norwich on its statboards, but from Lichfield in Staffordshire, the correct location, on the website.
  • After the Grand Final Group Battle between Carbide, Shockwave and Apollo, Angela Scanlon erroneously said to Team Carbide "not only did you destroy Carbide, you destroyed the set as well!" when Carbide instead severely damaged Shockwave, and not itself.
  • During TR2's introduction before its first Head-to-Head battle against Big Nipper, Clive Brown had his first name misspelt as Chris.
  • Grant Hornsby and Martin Slattery were erroneously captioned with the other's name during King B Remix's introduction before its Head-to-Head battle against Dantomkia.
  • In Episode 3, during their Group Battle, a shot of Big Nipper and Supernova coming into contact with each other was used twice in succession.
    • In his interview shortly after the aforementioned Group Battle, Sethu Vijayakumar stated that Supernova was trying to drive away from Sir Killalot before ending up in the pit. In fact, it had been pushed around and placed at an angle by TR2 before the gyroscopic forces of its disc carried it towards and into the pit.
  • Erroneously, M.R. Speed Squared's name was spelt simply as "MR SPEED SQUARED" on television, while the official website refers to it as "M.R Speed Squared" which was made on television the following year as well. The correct name is "M.R. Speed Squared", featuring two full stops.
  • In some episodes, whenever it went to a judges' decision, it would cut to the judges where Eruption is seen in the reflection in the arena despite only appearing in one episode.
  • In the introduction of Storm 2's VT, Meral Bence had her first name misspelt as Meryl.
  • In the seconds prior to 'activate' for Episode 5's Heat Final between Pulsar and Gabriel, a shot of Apollo and Storm 2 in the arena was erroneously shown.
  • In the first Group Battle in Episode 2, Jonathan Pearce said that Tough as Nails was causing damage when actually Thor was axing the top of Tough as Nails.

Series 9Edit

  • Throughout Series 9, silhouettes of eight robots were used to demonstrate the episode format to the audience. However, when the four Series 8 robots qualified over the four Battle of the Stars Robots in Round 1, the format showed Kan-Opener qualifying from its own fight alone, whilst Eruption, Terror Turtle and PP3D all qualified from the second fight, rather than two robots from each fight.
  • During The Cat's introduction in Episode 1 of Battle of the Stars, Jonathan Pearce quoted its disc as being able to spin at 'over 150rpm', instead of 1200rpm.
  • When introducing the judges in Episode 2 of Battle of the Stars, Jonathan Pearce erroneously referred to Professor Noel Sharkey as a Doctor.
  • Jonathan Pearce incorrectly referred to the judging criteria as damage, style, control and aggression during the fight between Dee and Robo Savage in the second episode of Battle of the Stars.
  • During Sabretooth's introduction before its Group Battle in Episode 1, it had its name misspelt as Sabertooth.
  • Throughout Episode 1 whenever Shunt and Sir Killalot were on as the House Robots for the battle, they would receive a stats board and introduction, whereas Dead Metal and Matilda only had one introduction during the first melee.
  • In the Head-to-Head battle between Aftershock and Rapid from Episode 1, Jonathan Pearce claimed that Aftershock's disc could not function as a self-righting mechanism, despite Aftershock successfully righting itself a few seconds earlier after getting flipped by Rapid.
  • In the Head-to-Head battle between Sabretooth and Jellyfish, Jonathan Pearce said that the team members present in the Sabretooth booth were Gabriel Stroud, Esme Stroud and Rob Pickford, when in reality, Esme Stroud was absent. He also failed to mention fourth team member, Al Cannon, although he did mention him in the heat final.
  • After the first Group Battle of Episode 2 went to a Judges' Decision between Behemoth, Cobra and Eruption, Dara Ó Briain stated that a Group Battle had never been settled in this manner before, despite the fact a Judges' Decision was required in Episode 5 of Series 8 for the first Group Battle between Chompalot, Ironside3, Pulsar and Thermidor 2 (although Thermidor 2 was already immobilised and Pulsar was spinning in circles).
  • During the Group Battle between Cherub, Draven, PP3D and Push to Exit, Jonathan Pearce's commentary line of "You see what I mean about that spinner? Very low to arena floor" was played twice.
  • In Eruption's VT before the start of the Head-to-Head stage, Adrian Oates had his first name misspelt as Adrien
  • The stat boards in Episode 2 erroneously listed both PP3D and Draven as weighing 94kg.
  • After Eruption threw Behemoth out of the arena, Jonathan Pearce misquoted Behemoth's weight as 108.5kg instead of 109.5kg.
  • During Cobra's arena introduction, the announcer was heard mispronouncing its name as "Combra".
  • In the replay of the battle between Thor and Heavy Metal, Jonathan Pearce stated that Matilda's flywheel was the reason behind Heavy Metal's loss, believing that the attack was how one of Heavy Metal's wheels broke off. However, not only was Thor's slam against the wheel the cause for its breakage, it was impossible for Matilda's flywheel to cause the damage, since the broken wheel was opposite her flywheel.
  • In M.R. Speed Squared's appearance, the announcer, the presenters and Jonathan Pearce pronounced each letter of 'M.R.' instead of saying mister. Also, its name was spelt as "M.R Speed Squared".
  • For an unknown reason, both Dead Metal and Matilda were shown going 'rogue' in the first head-to-head between Thor and Concussion, despite the fact that the contestants were only allowed to press the pit tyre once and Thor had already pressed it.
  • When introducing Apex, Jonathan Pearce noted that the team had competed with Foxic, which he stated 'had won no battles'. Unless he was talking about Foxic's Series 8 Head to Head battles, or its Series 9 campaign exclusively, that statement is incorrect, since Foxic qualified with M.R. Speed Squared in its Series 8 melee.
  • Apex was incorrectly referred to as coming from Bristol, a mistake that was previously on the official website before being replaced with Apex's true origins, Burntwood in Staffordshire.
  • Crushtacean's status board referred to its top speed as 12mph, despite the Robot Wars website referring to it as 20mph.
  • A shot of Team Supernova was erroneously shown during the countdown to activate before the Head-to-Head battle between Wyrm and Ironside3.
  • Fhiannan McIvor of Memento Mori had his first name misspelt as Fhiannon in Wyrm's VT.
  • Marc Dermott of Team Apollo had his first name misspelt as Mark in Apollo's VT.
  • Coyote's arena introduction was also used for its preview, and thus stated its location and name rather than its name and weapon.
  • During Ms Nightshade's Group Battle, Jonathan Pearce said that it had four 'petals', when it actually had six.
    • Angela Scanlon also mentioned Ms Nightshade as having eight 'petals', when only six actually functioned as weapons.
  • Ms Nightshade's weapons were referred to as spikes, instead of axes, by the announcer.
  • At various points during Episode 5, both Dave Young of Team MAD and Jonathan Pearce referred to Carbide's bar spinner as a 'disc'.
  • After Dara Ó Briain interviewed the Ms Nightshade team before their Group Battle, he referred to them as Nightshade but the captions still say Ms Nightshade.
  • Jonathan Pearce states that Matilda has a chainsaw during one of Coyote's fights.
  • For an unknown reason, there was no mention of Crackers 'n' Smash being disqualified for removing their weapons ahead of their Head to Head battle with Carbide, despite Sabretooth nearly being disqualified for not having an active weapon.
  • In the post-battle thoughts in the pits after the Group Battle involving Eruption, Apollo and Aftershock, Angela Scanlon erroneously called Aftershock by its predecessor, Shockwave.
  • During its Head-to-Head battle against Aftershock, Jonathan Pearce said that Eruption had achieved five Out of the Arena flips in Series 9, when it actually achieved four. Conversely, Angela Scanlon stated that Eruption had flipped all of its opponents Out of the Arena, despite the fact that both Cobra and Hobgoblin were defeated by a judges' decision and a knockout, respectively.
  • During the second melee in Episode 5, both Crackers 'n' Smash and Meggamouse are shown near the pit release tyre. A side view is later used to show where robots are, before jumping to a close up of the pit going down. When it turns to the side view, however, both Crackers 'n' Smash and Meggamouse are shown being a few metres away from the tyre, making it unclear as to which robot pressed the tyre.

US Season 1Edit

  • Before the battle between Manta and Tiger Cat, the UK series 'Roboteers standby' announcement was heard instead of the usual US version.
  • Spawn Again's weakness according to its tech stats was referred to as having no self-righting mechanism despite the fact that it was armed with a flipper (though this could technically be true since it did not have a roll-cage at that time).
  • In the US broadcast of The Second World Championship, Mick Foley announced Switzerland as one of the competing nations, but in actuality, no robot competing represented the country.

US Season 2Edit

  • At the end of the Heat D first round battle between The Revolutionist, Trackzilla and The Gap, the UK 'Cease' announcement was heard instead of the usual US version.
    • The UK 'Cease' announcement was also heard at the end of the International Championship battle between General Chompsalot 2 and Brawler.
  • In the first round of the Tag Team Terror, both Texas Tornado and Mad Cow Bot have their weapons listed as a 'Flipping Plate' on their statistics board, instead of their lifting arm/spikes and drum respectively.
    • Additionally, Bang's weapon was listed as '3 x 16' Blades' on it and Snookums' statistic board instead of the pneumatic axe it was actually equipped with. Nevertheless, Stefan Frank correctly mentioned Bang's axe in his commentary, although he referred to it as a 'mace'.

Nickelodeon Robot WarsEdit

  • Neither Zanzara or Diskotek were introduced fully in their first appearances in the International Tag Team Terror and Mayhem, respectively. Zanzara was only mentioned by name and Diskotek was not announced at all.
  • At the end of both International Tag Team Terror qualifiers, the UK series 'Cease' announcement was heard instead of the usual US/Nickelodeon version.

Dutch Series 1Edit

  • While Blue's statistics board was displayed before its first-round battle against Project One in Heat D, there was no commentary from Eric Corton.
  • The replay of Slicer's first flip on Botwork in their Grand Final battle is mirrored.

Dutch Series 2Edit

  • Before the Heat A battle between Neater and Hard, Mr. Psycho was visible at the top-right of the screen during a clip of Growler's introduction, despite Matilda being introduced immediately before Growler as the other House Robot for that battle.
  • Throughout its appearances, Krab-Bot's name was spelt as Krab Bot on its statistics boards, without the hyphen.
  • Before the Heat C battle between Krab-Bot and Alien Destructor 2, Dead Metal was shown sitting inside the top-left CPZ during his introduction, before the cameras immediately cut to him sitting outside it before the opening countdown.

German SeriesEdit

  • Before the first battle of Heat A, Barbaric Response and Firestorm 4 can clearly be seen in the arena instead of Thorgrim, Tyke and Son of Armageddon when Growler is being introduced.
    • Additionally, Mr. Psycho is visible in a CPZ during the same clip, despite Matilda immediately being introduced after Growler and joining Growler in the arena for the aforementioned battle.
  • In the German version of the first Second World Championship heat, Chaos 2’s statistics board shows its Series 6 stats instead of its Extreme 1/Series 5 stats, which would have been more accurate for this battle.
    • Additionally, Mastiff’s power source is listed as a 12V electric motor instead of a 24V one, and Ansgar’s dimensions are listed as 0.75 x 0.75 x 0.75 instead of 0.75 x 0.75 x 0.34 as in the UK broadcast.

Merchandise Edit

Video gamesEdit

This does not include glitches

General Edit

  • In Metal Mayhem and Arenas of Destruction, Mentorn Barraclough Carey is misspelt in the credits. In Metal Mayhem's credits, Mentorn Barraclough Carey is misspelt as Mentron Baraclough Carey, whilst in Arenas of Destruction, it is misspelt as Mentorn Baraclough Carey.
  • In Arenas of Destruction's and Extreme Destruction's credits, Panic Attack member Christian Bridge has his name in brackets. However, this could be due to him joining the team via winning the competition in the Robot Wars Magazine.
  • In Arenas of Destruction's and Advanced Destruction's credits, some mistakes are made with Mortis' credits. Firstly in Arenas of Destruction, Infranor 5 is credited as a member of Mortis, when it was in fact an incorrect name for the robot's sponsor, Infranor Motors. Meanwhile, in Advanced Destruction's instruction booklet and credits, the Mortis team is credited as Mortis Infranor. In addition, Mortis team member Ben Gordon is listed as "Ben Gord" in both games' credits, which if even corrected would still be classified as an error, since Gordon was replaced by Paul Ford in Series 4, when both games were released and based on.
  • In both versions of Extreme Destruction, Thermidor 2 and Wheely Big Cheese are not invertible, when they were in real-life.
  • In Arenas of Destruction and the PC and Xbox version of Extreme Destruction, both versions of Diotoir can self-right when in real-life all variants of the robot had no srimech. This error does not apply to Diotoir's appearances in Metal Mayhem and Advanced Destruction, since all robots automatically self-right when flipped.

Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem Edit

UltorMM

Ultor as it appears on the back of the box

  • The original Thermador is known as Thermidor II.
  • Diotoir and Sir Chromalot are two dimensional only.
  • Crasha Gnasha is purple despite the fact that the real-life version and the menu artwork are blue.
  • For some reason, a screenshot of Ultor is featured on the back of the box, even though it does not appear in the game.
  • Chaos 2's weapon is listed as a "Pneumatic Axe".
  • The War Zone arena, based on the Series 3 arena, does not feature a Floor Flipper nor flamethrowers.
  • X-Terminator is painted grey in the game, when the Series 3 version, through which the game model is based on, was red.
  • Pussycat is completely grey, when in Series 3, it was also painted black.
  • Dead Metal is pink and grey, when it should be just grey.
  • Terminal Ferocity is completely green, when in real-life it was yellow and black.

Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction Edit

TerrorhurtzAOD

Terrorhurtz, with the incorrect 1012 decal

  • Terrorhurtz's decal is 1012 when it should be Hz12.
  • For some reason, Coopertron, a super heavyweight, is allowed to compete in heavyweight competitions Robot Wars Championship and the Assault. Another error allows Mortis to compete in the axe-exclusive Hamburg Heavyweight Tournament even though it has a lifting arm.
  • In the credits, Diotoir team member Peter Redmond is misspelt as Peter Redmodn.
  • Firestorm 2 is known simply as Firestorm, with the exception of Jonathan Pearce's introduction. However, Pearce states that Firestorm 2 can flip robots out of the arena, when this version never achieved that feat.
  • Most of the competitor robots have incorrect weights compared to their real life versions. The most notable example of this is that Mortis weighs 95kg in the game when it actually weighed 79.3kg in real life. Note that Mortis did not compete in Series 5 or Extreme 1, so the possible theory that it was reflecting the then-new 100kg weight limit is incorrect.
  • Jonathan Pearce states that the floor flipper is used for insult to injury on immobilised robots. This is incorrect, as should competitor robots linger for too long on the floor flipper, it will fire automatically.
  • In the Training Ground mode, the Ultimate Challenge description states that the player "must go head to head with Shunt, Matilda, Sgt Bash or the mighty Sir Killalot", omitting the fact that Dead Metal can be battled in this mode as well.
  • A curious modification occurs to Hurricane in the Military Base tournament Flip Frenzy. Like all non-flippers competing in the tournament, Hurricane is modified to incorporate a lifter, placed on the front of the machine. However, for an unknown reason, Hurricane also changes it chassis, from a low classic wedge to a cone, yet retains the same polycarbonate armour and pipe extras. Although most competitor machines have alternative versions that compete in weapon-exclusive tournaments, Hurricane's modification is the only type that has an alternative chassis to the original, therefore making it an error.
  • Oddly, Salvage and The Argo incorporate fewer drives than wheels, with two Small Inner Pneumatic wheels being left without any control.
  • Should the player win the Mount Kilimanjaro tournament Zorten Industries' Cup, a notification states that the player has unlocked "secret components". However, no components are unlocked after the tournament is won.
  • Behemoth has twin axes at the rear of the machine, even though the model is based on the Series 4 model, when the axes were removed.
  • Sergeant Bash's rear disc spins, when it should be static, as with the real-life Series 4 version.

Robot Wars: Advanced Destruction Edit

DtrAD

Diotoir, with the fur on top of its lifter

RzrAD

Razer's appearance in Robot Wars: Advanced Destruction

  • In the US version of the game, the credits for game commentary still go to Jonathan Pearce, even though he was replaced by another voice actor for this version.
  • In the credits, Onslaught team member Peter Holland is listed as "Pete Holland". Note that this would still be an error even if corrected, as Holland was replaced by Mark Holland in Series 4, when the game was released and based on.
  • The War Zone arena, based on the Series 4 arena, has arena floor spikes, and angle grinders lining the arena walls. Although grinders were present in the Series 4 arena in real-life, the ones depicted in the game are much larger and the floor spikes were removed following Series 3 and never implemented in the actual Series 4 arena. By contrast, the Floor Flipper, which was included in the Series 4 arena, is not present in the game.
  • In Championship mode, the player may defeat a competitor, yet for some reason still face it later on in the competition.
  • Diotoir has fur on top of its lifter, which it never had in real-life.
  • Chaos 2's rear is opaque, rather than transparent.
  • Razer's front wheels are the wrong colour, being green rather than blue. As well as that, the self-righting wings protrude outwards (as if it was self-righting or giving its "salute") when the claw is in its default position, but close as the claw comes down to attack and there are far less weight-reducing holes in the wings and they are large and square, rather than small and round.
  • Terrorhurtz's axe is the wrong shape.

Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction (GBA) Edit

RWEDGBA Matilda Arena

Matilda, coloured white

  • Dead Metal and Matilda are coloured white when they should be grey and purple respectively.
  • Two errors concern Destructive Criticism's appearance in the game. Firstly, it is painted completely green, when the the bars surrounding the wheels are unpainted. Meanwhile, its disc functions as a saw rather than a flywheel. This would be intentional, had it not been for the fact that Hypno-Disc's and Propeller-Head's spinners functioning similar to actual spinners.
  • Panzer Mk 4 has a light blue top when the real robot had a black top.
  • For some reason, Sir Killalot's code makes him the fastest House Robot in the game, when in real-life he was the slowest.
  • Neither Rosie the Riveter 2 nor Tricerabot are invertible, unlike their real-life counterparts.

Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction (PC/Xbox) Edit

Tornado RW- ED

Tornado's Series 4 model with the Series 5 spinning disc

  • The model used for Tornado is actually its Series 4 model with its spinning disc added. The pneumatics for the spike, its weapon in Series 4, are still present.
  • Spanners is not invertible. Despite this, fully recreating Spanners via the workshop gives the robot this ability.
  • Firestorm has two intros - the first intro is from Arenas of Destruction and the second intro is for Firestorm 3.
  • The Robot Wars arena incorrectly shows four House Robots in the CPZs, a working Drop Zone and the Series 4 Floor Flipper. The arena should have two House Robots, a non-functional Drop Zone and the Series 5 Floor Flipper.
  • The Robot Wars arena pit descends after one minute and forty seconds, regardless of whether the pit button was pressed or not. This feature was only implemented in Series 4 and should not occur in this version of the Robot Wars arena.
  • Suicidal Tendencies is not invertible, unlike in real-life. Its scoop also has not been programmed to function for unknown reasons.
  • Wheely Big Cheese's underside is grey, when it should be the same as the top. It also has a caster wheel on the underside, something it lacked in real-life.
  • Thermidor 2's back is pointed, like its Series 4 version, even though the game is based around Extreme 1 and Series 5, where it had a rounded back.
  • Todd Mendenhall is not listed as one of Panzer Mk 4's team members on the battle board, despite always being part of the team. Brian Nave is likewise not listed on The Revolutionist's battle board.
  • Hypno-Disc has three top mounted and two rear mounted spikes, like the Arenas of Destruction model, despite the fact that this Hypno-Disc should have been based on the Series 5 version (which had a single top spike).
  • In the Chassis section of the Robot Builder menu, the Tornado chassis has no description for unknown reasons.
  • Razer's front scoop, which was added in Extreme 1, does not appear in the game. Oddly, Razer's logo also appears on the left side of the model only, unlike in real-life when both sides incorporated the logo.
  • Chaos 2's Co2 bottle is designed so it fits horizontally, when in real-life it was mounted diagonally.

Other gamesEdit

  • Sergeant Bash with his name spelt wrong
  • Clawed Hopper with its name spelt wrong
  • Mega Hurts 2 with its name spelt wrong and with an incorrect weight listed
  • Barber-Ous 2 with an incorrect weight and Extreme 2 image listed
  • In Robot Wars: The Game, Chaos 2 has triangular wheel covers on each side, which it never had in real-life.
  • In The Game, Destruct-A-Bubble has no spike, unlike in real-life.
  • In The Game, Razer has no self-righting wings, nor a curved claw.
  • In The Game, Suicidal Tendencies has a front scoop that was only used in BattleBots and never in Robot Wars.
  • In the first pack of Robot Wars Battle Cards, Sergeant Bash has his name misspelt as Segeant Bash on his card.
  • In the first pack of Battle Cards, Clawed Hopper is misspelt as Clawd Hopper on its card.
  • In pack two of Battle Cards, Weld-Dor 2 is known as Wel' Dor.
  • In pack two of Battle Cards, Evil Weevil 2 is known simply as Evil Weevil.
  • In pack two of Battle Cards, Spawn of Scutter is misspelt as Spawn of Skutter.
  • In pack four of Battle Cards, some robots have incorrect weights, with most being over their actual weights. In some cases, some robots, including Barber-Ous 2, had weights listed over the 100kg weight limit.
  • In pack four of Battle Cards, images for most of the robots, such as Barber-Ous 2, are of their Extreme 2 versions, despite the cards being based on Series 6.
  • In pack four of Battle Cards, Mega Hurts 2 is misspelt as Mega Hurtz 2 on its card.

ToysEdit

Mini x-t

The X-Terminator 2 pullback, with its upside down "XT" logo and axe head

  • In each of its appearances, Hypno-Disc is shown with its Series 3 disc.
  • All the toys of Panic Attack lack the signature spider design on the top.
  • The "XT" logo and the entire axe head on the X-Terminator 2 pullback is upside down. The image of it on its statistics card shows it the right way up.
  • On the statistics card for the Sir Killalot pullback, one of its weapons was listed as a flamethrower.
  • Shunt's wheel caps are black rather than grey. It is interesting to note that the advertisement shows Shunt with white or light grey wheel caps.
  • The size of the pullbacks side by side is incorrect correlation to real life.
  • The Smash N Crash playset colours on the actual set do not always match those on the box or the official artwork. The image on the front of the box shows primarily grey targets on the H frames, stickers not present on the actual toy and a grey switch to control the flipper, whereas the panels are primarily yellow, and the flipper switch is black on the actual toy. The official artwork, as seen on the Robot Wars online shop, shows a grey fighting platform and grey and red striped ramps, whereas the fighting platform on the actual toy is black, and the ramps have yellow and black stripes.

Published materialEdit

MagazineEdit

  • The original Robot Wars Magazine incorrectly stated that Spawn of Scutter had defeated Gravedigger on its way to the Series 4 semi-finals, despite the picture in the magazine clearly showing them fighting Vercingetorix. In fact, Team Scutterbots and Gravedigger never fought each other on Robot Wars, although both teams were in the same heat in the following series and also the same semi-final in Series 3 and both lost in the first round.
  • In some Series 4 heat reports, some of the round 2 battles were swapped round. For example, in Issue 14, the report for Heat O says the battle between Aggrobot 2 and S.M.I.D.S.Y. came before the battle between Panic Attack and Saw Point when it was the other way round.
  • The transmission date for Heat M of Series 4 says 29/12/00 rather than 05/01/01. The Northern Annihilator was broadcast on 29/12/00 and did not get a report at all in the magazine.
  • In the 'Robot Mayhem' event report from the first magazine, some images taken from the event are mirrored. The image of Sir Killalot fighting 'Teddybot' shows him with his lance on his left-hand side and his jaws on the right, instead of vice-versa, and the numbers on 'F-One' in the image of its qualifier are also mirrored.
  • In Issue 17, the picture of Sir Killalot pitting Cronos is said to be from Heat E when it was from Heat D.
  • In the image of Iron-Awe in Issue 8 and on its battle card, its axe is yellow instead of silver.
  • In the Heat Report for Heat D in the same issue, a picture of a flame jet is used where a picture of the Cronos team should be. Also, the picture of Cronos is of it in the arena.
  • In Issue 10, the image of Sir Killalot pitting Centurion is mirrored.
  • In the Heat Report for Heat M in Issue 13, The Steel Avenger is missing a team photo, with a picture of it fighting Sir Chromalot being put in its place.
  • As well as that, The Steel Avenger's picture is incorrectly cropped, removing the axe head. Not only that, but it is a picture of it from its battle between Wild Thing and Humphrey.
  • In the Heat Report for Heat N in Issue 14, two photos of Millennium Bug fighting are used where the photo of Millennium Bug and the team photo should be.
  • In the Heat Report for Heat O in the same issue, a photo of Saw Point fighting is used where the team photo should be.
  • Mini Morg is referred to as Mega Morg.
  • Juggernot 2 was mistakenly referred to as Juggernaut 2.
  • In the section The Third Wars: The Heats in Issue 2 of the magazine, the heats are listed out of order.
  • In the first issue of the second edition, there were two Battle 2s for the write-up of Heat B instead of one Battle 1 and one Battle 2.
  • In the Sixth Wars league table, four heats have the round 1 battles reversed.
  • The first issue of the second edition of the Robot Wars Magazine said Firestorm won Series 4 when it lost in the semi-finals of that series.
  • In both Stinger and Tornado's history sections in Issue 3 of the magazine, it said Stinger lost in the Series 4 Grand Final to the second seed Chaos 2 when it was actually seeded first and Tornado was knocked out by Diotoir in the first round of the Fifth Wars when it was actually the second round.
  • In the first issue of the Titan magazine, during an article on the Series 6 qualifiers, Destruct-A-Bubble was erroneously referred to as Destructor.
  • In Issue 2 of the Titan magazine, an image from Firestorm 4 vs X-Terminator is used in the battle report for The Alien vs Shredder.
  • In Issue 2 and 5 of the Titan magazine, Jake Adams is mentioned on Wild Thing's statistics sheet despite not being part of the team in Series 6.
  • In Issue 4 of the magazine, Panic Attack was said to have been knocked out twice by Firestorm when it was actually knocked out three times at the time.
  • One other notable mistake in Issue 4 of the magazine showed a picture of Terror-Bull on Terrorhurtz's statistics sheet. There was also a picture of Terror-Bull's team instead of Terrorhurtz's team in Terrorhurtz's lowdown and history.
  • Granny's Revenge 2 was said to have had a washing machine dropped on it when it was actually an oven.
  • In the 'Tech Round Up' section from Issue 4 of the Titan magazine, Axios and Toe Cutter are erroneously mentioned as the first two robots to face Hypno-Disc in Series 3, instead of Robogeddon and Stealth respectively. The former two robots fought Panic Attack.
  • In Issue 5 of the Titan magazine, Behemoth was said to have won the Extreme Series 1 Challenge Belt. It actually won the belt for two battles, but then lost to Tornado.
    • The statistics for Behemoth in Issue 5 also referred to its scoop as a 'flipper'.
  • In the same issue in Disc-O-Inferno's lowdown and history, the robot's name was misspelt as Disco-O-Inferno.
    • Additionally, Disc-O-Inferno's history section in Issue 5 also ignored its victory in the second Extreme 1 Annihilator.
  • Also in Issue 5 of the Titan magazine, Bigger Brother was stated to have ‘defeated every champion of the Wars’ except Razer, despite not having fought either Panic Attack or Roadblock by the time of the magazine’s publication.
  • In the personal zone about Philippa Forrester in Issue 5, it shows a picture of her interviewing the Thermidor 2 team, but the sentence about it is incomplete.
  • In the list of all the toys in Issue 4 of the magazine, Gemini is excluded from the list of minibots. Also, Chaos 2 is listed as "Chaos" in the list of pullbacks.
  • In Issue 7 of the Titan magazine, the image of Terrorhurtz in the pit is from the Extreme 2 Challenge Belt final, not its All Stars battle.
  • Also in Issue 7, Kan-Opener's height was mistakenly listed as 26cm instead of 24cm, although this was corrected later on in the same issue.
  • A number of errors regarding the House Robots' statistics were present throughout Issue 7 of the Titan magazine, particularly in the first 'Battle Zone' section:
    • As with other Robot Wars publications, Sergeant Bash was listed as having a circular saw as part of his weaponry, despite it being disabled since Series 3. Additionally, his pincers are not mentioned at all on his 'Battle Zone' stats.
    • Ironically, despite being the fastest House Robot by the time of the magazine's publication, Growler's weakness was listed as 'slow speed' in the 'Battle Zone' section.
    • Mr Psycho's 'Battle Zone' stats stated that his weaknesses included being 'Very slow and cumbersome', despite Mr Psycho having the same top speed as Sergeant Bash and the original Matilda, and being faster than Refbot and the original Sir Killalot.
    • Refbot's front plough and rear scoops were referred to as 'shunts', and listed as weapons in his 'Battle Zone' stats despite not being intended for combat use.
    • In a behind-the-scenes article on the House Robots later in the issue, Sir Killalot's stats listed his weight as 500kg instead of 520kg.
    • Matilda's tusks were described as hydraulic instead of pneumatic.
  • Diotoir was spelt inconsistently throughout the second magazine. Although often spelt correctly, it was frequently spelt "Diottor". Sometimes, both spellings were used in the same issue.
  • In Issue 19 of the original magazine, three of the Dutch Series 1 competitors featured have their names misspelt; Philipper as Philliper, Bamm Bamm as Bam Bam and El-Mower as El Mower.
  • The Fantasy Fights in the original magazine made frequent visual errors and inconsistencies to the robots they depicted. These include the following:
    • Chaos 2's flipper mechanism is portrayed inaccurately in its Grudge Match against Cassius. When it opens, it is depicted as having a single ram and being hinged half-way up its front, as opposed to having twin rams and being hinged at the top as on the real robot and in its later Fantasy Fights.
    • Sir Chromalot's drill and cobalt cutter are combined in its battle against Plunderbird 4.
    • The back of Plunderbird is drawn as being black, when it was actually yellow with a red trim at the bottom, like the rest of the robot.
    • Spawn of Scutter is merely named "Spawn" in its fight against Aggrobot 2, and its spike is completely absent.
    • As well as that, Aggrobot 2 is merely named "Aggrobot".
    • In one comic in Issue 11, it is stated that CPZ stands for "Controlled Patrol Zone", when it actually stands for Corner Patrol Zone.
    • Behemoth's scoop and srimech are both portrayed inaccurately in its battle against Gemini and Wild Thing. Wild Thing also acts as a full-body flipper, a design it did not have.
    • As well as being misnamed (as above), Destruct-A-Bubble's lance is portrayed as static in its battle against Robochicken and Banshee. Robochicken's beak also mistakenly has its protective covering in the battle, and its axe-spike disappears completely when it first attacks Banshee.
    • Scorpion is missing all three of its spinning discs in its fight against Terror-Bull and Bulldog Breed 2. Bulldog Breed is also shown to be capable of self-righting.
    • Wheelosaurus is misspelt as "Wheelasaurus" in its battle against Stinger.
    • In both Cronos vs Reptirron and Diotoir vs The Creature, the arena angle grinders are shown to be extremely large twin vertical saw blades. Not only does this not match any set-up the actual angle grinders had, but it is inaccurate for the arena at the time, as the Series 4 arena did not have angle grinders.
    • Cronos' claw is portrayed as static in its battle against Reptirron, and its wedge, which is undersized, is shown to have the ability to lift.
    • Knightmare is wedged onto its side in its fight against Gravedigger and The Morgue, which would be impossible in real life.
    • Firestorm 2, Bolt From the Blue and Tornado are all portrayed inaccurately in their fight. Firestorm is still sporting its wedge-guard, Bolt From the Blue's flipper opens too far back and Tornado's spike is static. Also, at one point during the fight, Bolt From the Blue sidestrands Tornado and goes to attack Firestorm, only to fly up its wedge and collide with Tornado again, all while going in the same direction.
    • Raizer Blade's lifting arm is portrayed inaccurately in its battle against Razer.
    • Sump Thing's axe is portrayed inaccurately in its battle against Onslaught and Scar.
    • Saw Point is missing its front spike in its battle against Spikasaurus. Spikasaurus itself is missing its own spikes in one frame.
    • When Evil Weevil 2 collides with Milly-Ann Bug and Little Fly in their battle, a wheel is shown breaking off. However, in the next three shots, the robots have all their wheels intact.
    • Stinger, Mortis and Hypno-Disc are all portrayed inaccurately in their fight. Stinger's arm is shown permanently pointing upwards, Mortis is devoid of its armour and Hypno-Disc's flywheel is in its Series 3 design except for the last two panels.

Robot Wars: The Ultimate GuideEdit

  • The quickest battle at the time is stated to be Evolution and Spawn Again, at 19.1 seconds, when the record at the time was Cerberus vs Griffon from Series 3. Even though they could have been counting the total time before 'cease' was called, it then goes on to state that Wheely Big Cheese vs Axe-Awe was 12 seconds long, and that battle involved an immediate immobilisation.
  • S3's former incarnation is said to be Triterobot, despite it mentioning that it was Mousetrap's original incarnation, and its battle history is in Mousetrap's column (with the robot also being incorrectly put down as 'Tri-Terra-Bot' on both counts). S3's true former incarnation was Sting, although this is not mentioned at all.
  • In S.M.I.D.S.Y.'s battle history, it states it was beaten in Round 2 in The Third Wars by Dreadnaut (also misspelled 'Dreadnought'), when it was beaten in Round 1 by Rattus Rattus.
  • The results for The Fourth Wars: Sumo Basho are incomplete and partially incorrect. The only robots shown are Maverick, Diotoir, Firestorm 2, S.M.I.D.S.Y., Spawn of Scutter, X-Terminator, Scorpion, Razer and Bigger Brother. In addition, it states Spawn of Scutter won the tournament (Panic Attack won it yet it isn't even mentioned in the time list), and Scorpion, Razer, Spawn of Scutter and Bigger Brother's times are all incorrect.
  • In the Robot Wars Extreme: Series 1 results, it says Spirit of Knightmare won Annihilator 2 when Disc-O-Inferno did, and Anty B won the Antweight Melee when Combat Ant did (though Anty B would go on to win the antweight competition in the next series of Extreme).
  • The weapon stats for 101's, Chaos 2's and S.M.I.D.S.Y.'s profiles are wrong - 101's and Chaos 2's weapon stats say "Vertically Mounted Flywheel" whilst S.M.I.D.S.Y.'s reads "Axe and Lifter". Chaos 2 in reality had a flipper, S.M.I.D.S.Y. had jaws (that could act as a lifter somewhat) and a disc and 101 had a spear which had a sensor.
  • Kronic 2's former incarnation is said to be Wedgehog although in fact the two robots were built by different teams.
  • Atomic is said to have flipped Reactor out of the arena in the qualifiers. Robots were never allowed to flip each other out of the arena in the qualifiers due to safety concerns.
  • The Series 4 heats F and M are in the wrong place. The guide says Wild Thing and Sir Chromalot were in Heat F and Tornado and Gemini in Heat M, when it is the other way round - this mistake is repeated in the Sir Chromalot profile. In reality, according to the seed distribution, the listing in the Ultimate Guide would be the consistent place, despite not being the reality.
  • It states that Growler weighs 420kg and Mr. Psycho weighs 600kg when Growler and Mr. Psycho actually weighed 375kg and 750kg respectively.
  • ORAC's Revenge is incorrectly named DRAC's Revenge in the Series 3 guide.
  • In the Series 3 guide, Thermador is spelt with an "I" in place of the "A". This error also appears in Thermidor 2's Battle History and in its Former Incarnations.
  • In the Fourth Wars War of Independence, it states that Ming 3 took part, when Ming 2 took part. Ming 3 hadn't been made yet.
  • Behemoth's weapons stat only has Pneumatic Scoop as the weapon, saying nothing about the axe.
  • In the House Robots section, it states that Sergeant Bash has a Rear-mounted Cutting Disc even though it was deactivated and was only for show in the Third Series.
  • In Mini Morg's History, it says that they lost in round one to Kat 3 in the Fifth Wars. Later, in the Worst Moment section it says that they lost to Kater Killer. In real life they lost to Kat 3, although Kater Killer was made by the same team.
  • In the second bout of Heat N of the Fourth Wars where the combatants were Millennium Bug, X-Terminator, and Judge Shred 2, Millennium Bug is just called Millennium.
  • It misspells Panzer Wraith as "Panzerwrath".
  • It calls The Parthian Shot "The Parthian Scott".
  • Demon Duck is simply reduced to "Demon".
  • Corporal Punishment is misspelled "Corp Punishment" in the Internet Insurrection report.
  • Firestorm is credited as having scored 185 points in the Series 4 Pinball Tournament when it only scored 135 points.
  • In the Series 4 results, the semi-finals have the wrong robots listed. Spawn of Scutter, Panic Attack, Stinger and Mousetrap are said to have fought in Semi-Final 1, whilst Pussycat, Thermidor 2, Firestorm 2 and Dominator 2 are said to have fought in Semi-Final 2. In reality, it was the other way round. The Grand Final eliminators are also reversed.
  • Pussycat is stated as reaching the Extreme 1 All-Stars Semi-Finals when it actually reached the All-Stars Quarter-Finals.
  • The Longest Running Grudge is said to be between Pussycat and Razer, when that had only lasted two fights (the second of which was only acted out for entertainment purposes), even though grudges such as the one between Panic Attack and Firestorm or King Buxton and Team 101 had lasted more fights (They had both fought each other three times).
  • In Thermidor 2's Best Moment, it incorrectly states that Thermidor 2 threw Behemoth and Stinger out of the arena in the Tag Team Tournament when this actually occured in the Mayhem battles.
  • Major Tom's Extreme Series 1 information is not listed.
  • Crasha Gnasha is incorrectly listed as Crash Gnasha in the Series 3 results. Also, Ally Gator is misspelt as Ally Gaitor, Inverterbrat is misspelt as Invertebrat and Darke Destroyer is misspelt as Dark Destroyer.
  • Tiberius 2 is misspelt as Tiberious 2 in the Series 5 results. This is also made on the Robot Wars website on Carbide's page.
  • Destruct-A-Bubble is misspelt as Distruct-A-Bubble in the Series 4 results.
  • The Series 4 results also incorrectly states Big Brother competed in Heat J when it was actually Bigger Brother who competed in Heat J.
  • In the Extreme Series 1 results, King B Powerworks is credited as King B3.
  • It mistakenly says Razer and Gemini both won the Series 4 Best Design Award when in real life, only Gemini won the award.
  • It does not mention Roadblock's successor Beast of Bodmin despite the former having a profile.
  • In the Series 4 results, Mazakari is misspelt as Mazekari, Dreadnaut XP-1 is simply listed as Dreadnaut, Darke Destroyer 2 is simply listed as Darke Destroyer, The Morgue is simply listed as Morgue and The Predator is simply listed as Predator. Additionally, Bigger Brother is listed as Bigger Brother 2 in the Sumo Basho, Pinball Warrior and Tag Team Terror results.
  • In the Series 5 results, Napalm 2 is simply listed as Napalm.
  • Draven is referred to by original name, Anthrax.
  • In Dominator 2's battle history, it says that Dominator 2 reached the Semi Finals of the Fifth Wars 'by surviving one of Wheely Big Cheese's legendary flips'. This actually happened in the first round of the Semi Finals.
  • Napalm's Extreme 1 performance only lists it reached the Annihilator in the Mayhem, ignoring its Tag Team Terror and Vengeance information.
  • Mortis' weight is listed as 100kg when it was actually 79.3kg from when it last competed.
  • King B Powerworks' Extreme Series 1 performance ignores its Mayhem and Wild Card Warrior battles.
  • Chaos 2's Series 5 performance says it flipped Storm Force into the pit in Round 1 when it actually placed Storm Force on the pit before activating the pit button.
  • Storm Force is listed as "Storm" in the Series 5 results. Also, Bulldog Breed 3 is listed as Bulldog Breed 2.

Robot Wars Extreme: The Official GuideEdit

  • Sergeant Bash's rear cutting disc is mentioned, even though by that series it was no longer active.
  • Behemoth is claimed to have lost on points to Pitbull in the Series 3 Heat Final, when it was actually immobilized after getting flipped. However, it was eventually re-righted and active at the end of the fight, so the error may have been based on that.
  • One of the Behemoth team members is mistakenly listed as "Derek Pritchard".
  • On Diotoir's profile, it states that Firestorm flipped it into the pit to win the Heat Final in Series 3. This would not have been possible as the pit was not used for the Heat Final onwards. Firestorm actually flipped Diotoir onto the flame pit.
  • Panic Attack is listed as coming from Ipswich, when it in fact comes from Cwmbran.
  • Stinger is listed with a 0 ground clearance, which is an impossibility considering its design.
  • Stinger's profile also mentions "All of that (Stinger's workings) is bad news for Chaos 2, who are top of Stinger's hit list after knocking Stinger out of the Fourth Wars in a Semi-Final that Stinger controversially claims was fixed!". That battle actually took place in the Grand Final, not a Semi-Final.
  • In Bigger Brother's history, it is stated that Big Brother beat Sir Chromalot to win the Heat Final. This actually happened during the second round of the heat. Big Brother actually "beat" Ultor to win the Heat Final, and the guide, as a result, fails to mention the events that took place in that heat.
  • Napalm is listed as being able to go at 20 mph, when it has been stated it can only go at 8 mph.
  • In Suicidal Tendencies's profile, Raizer Blade is misspelt as "Razer Blade".
  • Thermidor 2's predecessor, Thermador, is continuously spelt in the same way the sequel is.
  • S.M.I.D.S.Y.'s guide claims that Rattus Rattus pushed S.M.I.D.S.Y. into the pit, when in fact it was Dead Metal.
  • In the Mayhem section, several robots listed as taking part do not actually appear in the event, including Bigger Brother, 3 Stegs to Heaven, Spawn Again, 101, Mega Morg, Firestorm 3, Suicidal Tendencies and Plunderbird 5. It is possible that these robots were due to take part in the event, but were forced to withdraw for various reasons (it is stated in the introduction that robots being scheduled to appear in one event may be forced to retire if they are damaged in an earlier battle, and hence some of the listings in the book may not match up with what is on TV). It should be noted that all the Mayhem fights featuring robots not mentioned in the Guide appear to have been filmed during or after Series 5.
  • Ming 3 is listed as coming from Kettering, rather than Somerset.
  • Killertron is listed under the name "Killertron 1". This was presumably to avoid confusion with the new robot the team had made to qualify for Series 5.
  • The guide makes a mention of an event called "The Peoples Challenge", where viewers post their dream fights online, which are then fought out in the arena. The event never took place.
  • Although a picture of the former is used, neither Anty B or Razzler are mentioned in the guide. Instead, a robot named Close Shave is listed in the stats. This robot never appeared in the competition.
  • The Revolutionist is listed as coming from Virginia, when it actually comes from Florida.
  • The listed speeds for some of the house robots are incorrect. For example, Sir Killalot is listed as being 8 mph, and Sergeant Bash only 5 mph, whereas it is actually the other way round.
  • Diotoir is listed as winning the Sportsmanship Award four times, when it had only won three times.
  • In the World Championship section, the word Championship on the title is misspelt as "Chamionship".
  • Spawn Again's notes section refers to it as its predecessor Spawn of Scutter.

Robot Wars: The Official Robot GuideEdit

  • Razer's Series 3 performance is listed as "Pinball Game Champion" but its performance in the main competition is missing.

  • Robo Doc is listed as losing in the heat final to King Buxton, a bout that happened in the heat semi-finals. King B3's and Small Torque's page even has that King Buxton beat All Torque in said Series 2 heat final.
  • Berserk 2 is listed to have competed in the "Heavyweight Showdown", not the Super Showdown. Also, Kick Robut is listed as "Kick Robot" and Demon Duck is listed as "Demon".
  • Dreadnaut's Second Wars performance isn't listed, even though the robot that beat it has details of the same heat as well as Mortis's.
    • It is also listed as losing to Wedgehog in the heat final in Series 1 when Dreadnaut lost to Wedgehog in the heat semi-finals.
  • Killertron is listed as coming "Third Place in Grand Final" in the Third Wars, the series that the machine didn't even enter. A more minor error mentioned on the Killertron page states that it lost to Panic Attack in the playoff, when this happened in the eliminator. Roadblock was the robot to defeat Killertron in the Playoff.
  • Triterobot is listed as Tri-Terra-Bot in Mousetrap's previous performances. This mistake is also made in Robot Wars: The Ultimate Guide
  • Jim Struts' win in the Reserve Rumble of Series 2 isn't listed in Arnold, Arnold Terminegger's previous performances.
    • It also mentions that Miss Struts beat Stomp to win the Walker Competition when this was actually an exhibition battle.
  • S.M.I.D.S.Y.'s loss in Series 3 is listed to have been in the second round, not in the first.
  • Spikasaurus is misspelt as Spikeasaurus.
  • In the Robot History section of the Diotoir page, Nemesis is said to have been beaten by Roadblock in series 1 in the heat final, and in series 2 to be beaten by Onslaught in the heat final, when on both occasions, this was in the heat semi-final.
  • Wheelosaurus, in Series 2 is said to have been beaten by Chaos in the heat final, when this happened in the arena semi-final.

  • The Robot History section of the Onslaught page doesn't have any information for Series 2 despite competing in Series 2, even though Onslaught is mentioned on Diotoir's page.
  • Kill Dozer's Series 2 performance is omitted from Raizer Blade's previous performances.
  • Killerhurtz is listed as losing to Roadblock in the heat final in Series 2 when it actually happened in the heat semi-finals.
  • In the Robot History section of the Firestorm page, Groundhog is listed as losing to Cassius in the heat final when it was Loco that beat Groundhog the heat semi-finals and then lost to Cassius in the heat final.
  • Milly-Ann Bug's Series 2 performance is simply listed as Most Original Entry whilst its performance in the main competition is not listed.
  • The battle board for Heat A says the battle between Medusa 2000, Attila the Drum and King B3 came before the battle between Chaos 2, Atomic and Indefatigable when in reality it was the other way round.
  • Velocirippa is said to have been beaten by Evil Weevil, Gnasher and The General in the Series 3 Robotic Soccer final even though only one robot won the final.

Robot Wars Fun FaxEdit

  • In the Diary, Diotoir is mentioned as having reached the Heat Final stage of the main competition in Series 1, 2, and 3, when at the time of writing, Diotoir had only progressed this far in Series 3, its predecessor Nemesis having fallen at the Heat Semi Final stage in Series 1 and 2.
  • In the Hall of Fame entry for Mortis, it claims Mortis is "The oldest fighting robot on the circuit", when Killertron made its first appearance in the same series as Mortis, and was still competing at the time, whereas Mortis had retired.
    • The same entry also attributes Mortis' defeat in its Series 4 Heat Final to its team forgetting to put 'one of its robot-ears' on. In actuality, Mortis lost to Steg 2 in the aforementioned Heat Final due to its lifting arm jamming open, leaving it unable to self-right.
  • Plunderstorm is included in the Hall of Fame instead of Plunderbird 4, the team's Series 4 entry.
  • The Hall of Fame entry for Roadblock states that it was the Series 2 runner-up, when it actually came third.
  • The Hall of Fame entry for Steg 2 just calls the robot "Steg".
  • Panic Attack's Hall of Fame entry states that it went ten battles without defeat, although when counting its victories in Series 2 and 3, it actually won nine battles before its defeat at the hands of Firestorm in the Series 3 Semi-Finals.
  • C-3PO is misspelt as CP-30 in the "Famous Robots" section.

Official Sticker CollectionEdit

  • The introduction claims the collection has "over 240 stickers", when there were actually 228.
  • In the Progress Guide, Berserk 2, Ming 2 and Wild Thing have their names written as one word.

  • Shadow of Napalm is missing from the Heat E section of the Progress Guide.
  • Chaos 2 is listed as Chaos in the Progress Guide.
  • Destruct-A-Bubble is incorrectly spelt "Distruct-A-Bubble" in the Progress Guide.

WebsiteEdit

  • Foxic's lifter and King B Remix's lifting forks were both referred to as flippers.
  • Shockwave's appearance in Series 8 was stated to be its first time fighting in any competition, despite it having previously competed in Techno Games and a limited number of live events prior to its rebuild.
  • It was stated in the 'Additional Information' section of Supernova's page that it had once torn part of the arena wall out in one battle, before shredding of Sir Killalot's tracks when the battle was restarted. However, while both incidents happened during Supernova's first round battle in Series 7, it was Matilda who broke the arena wall.
  • Sabretooth's description mentioned it as having a flipper, despite it actually being armed with a wedge, drum and gripping arm for Series 8.
  • Beast's predecessor, 8645T, was merely referred to as Beast during a rundown of its performance in the 'Additional Information' section for Beast's page.
  • Pulsar was claimed to be the only Series 8 competitor to feature brushless electric motors as part of its drive system, despite the website also stating that Big Nipper was equipped with them for Series 8 as well.
  • It was stated in the 'Additional Information' section of Terrorhurtz's page that the last time it competed was in Series 6 and that the only robot to beat it was Razer, despite the fact that Firestorm was the last robot defeat in that war and that its last appearance was in Extreme 2 (it had a cameo in Series 7).
  • In Thermidor 2's 'Additional Information', the website claims that 'it (Thermidor) had been fighting in eight wars, including the reboot'. Thermidor had only been fighting in six wars, including the reboot, and likely counts the two series of Extreme in which it entered, despite neither series of Extreme having a UK Championship present.
  • In its statistics, Tauron's weapon is referred to as a spinning drum, though it is later correctly described as a vertical spinning bar.
  • Shockwave's statistics mentions spikes to its arsenal. Note that this was after the update.
  • On Nuts 2's profile, Behemoth's name is spelt as Behemouth.

  • On Crushtacean's profile, it is stated that it had previously competed in Series 2, 5 and 6 of the original series. However, Crushtacean did not exist at the time of Series 2, and actually competed in Series 5-7 as well as the second series of Extreme. Crushtacean's defense also mentions a speed of 20kph (12mph), despite its top speed being referred to as 20mph.
