Eruption is a heavyweight robot which competed in Series 8, 9 and 10 of Robot Wars, and is the newest Robot Wars champion. Eruption entered the show with much experience from live events, where it has enjoyed huge success as a double FRA UK Heavyweight champion.
Although it defeated the eventual champion Apollo during the heats of Series 8, it ultimately did not score enough points to reach the Heat Final, suffering losses to Storm 2 and PP3D, but remained undefeated in three whiteboard fights. Eruption returned in Series 9 and reached the Grand Final by defeating its past foe PP3D, then Ironside3 and Aftershock, but placed second in the UK Championship after being immobilised in the Grand Final by Carbide. As the incumbent runner-up, it fought in Series 10, but an unfortunate draw led to a third consecutive loss to Carbide at only the Heat Final stage. In spite of this, Eruption tactically won its way through the 10 Robot Rumble, and won three straight battles in the Grand Final to become the Series 10 champion, avenging its past losses to Carbide along the way.
Eruption was known for its powerful flipper, capable of throwing opponents out of the arena. In the space of two episodes it flipped four robots out of the arena (doing so to Cherub on two occasions). As of Series 10, Eruption's number of out of the arena flips is eclipsed only by Dantomkia, having flipped seven robots out of the arena in televised combat. In addition to its flipping prowess, Eruption's second out of the arena flip on Cherub is ranked as the third shortest battle in Robot Wars history.
