- " A beautiful beast, it's royal, red, angry colours, matched by nasty looking pneumatic claws."
- — Jonathan Pearce
Red Dragon was an unusually shaped robot that resembled a dragon, with the dragon's head acting as a lifter and its claws acting as crushing claws driven by a CO2 cylinder, it also had arms on its side to act as a self-righting mechanism. The steely "scales" were scavenged from local scrapyards. It also had its own "lead" when Philippa Forrester showed when introducing the robot at the start to "take it for walks".
Red Dragon got off to a slow start as the much faster Raizer Blade smashed into it. It was then pushed around the arena and onto the floor flipper. As it tried to get back on the attack Raizer Blade came in again and attempted to push it into Sergeant Bash. Red Dragon managed to escape, but Raizer Blade continued to use its speed and agility to attack and Red Dragon was pushed onto the arena floor spikes, but then Red Dragon managed to dodge an attack which sent Raizer Blade into the CPZ where it was attack by Sergeant Bash. However as Red Dragon tried to come on the offensive, it stopped and appeared to break down. The House Robots then attacked it with Sergeant Bash using his pincers and Sir Killalot skewering Red Dragon with his lance. Red Dragon was then dropped into the Pit of Oblivion and was eliminated from the competition.
