The Grand Final was the last episode of Robot Wars: Series 9, featuring the five winners of the previous qualifying episodes, plus a sixth wildcard entry, to determine the new Robot Wars champion. It aired two weeks after the previous episode due to a clash with The Masters golf tournament on BBC Two.

The competitors were: Aftershock, Eruption, Concussion, Ironside3 and Carbide, winners of Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively, along with a wildcard entry chosen from the five heat finalists of the series. This was awarded to the defending champion Apollo. As such, this Grand Final was the first since Series 4 to feature both the previous' series champion and runners-up finisher.
