Snookums was a robot from Nevada that entered three competitions in the second season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors. Designed to look like a swordfish, it was built from a propane tank and was armed with a pneumatic lifting sword as its weapon. However, the force of the weapon was so strong that it broke itself whenever it fired, often forcing Snookums to fight its battles unarmed. Despite this, the propane tank body was strong enough to withstand Propeller-Head and the House Robots, and Snookums was still drivable at the end of the House Robot Rebellion.
It lost in the first round of the US Championship to Propeller-Head and Psycho Chicken, and in the Tag Team Terror, alongside Team Boltz who were using the loanerbot Bang, where it lost to G-Force and Sir Force A Lot. It did reach the main event of the Robot Rebellion, but was defeated by Shunt, Dead Metal and Sir Killalot.
Driver Ed Robinson was a sword swallower and fire-breather by trade. The team also had a toy parrot mascot called Cracker.
In the US Championship, Snookums was up against Propeller-Head and Psycho Chicken. It started attacking Team Robot Dojo's robot, who then demolished the chicken's egg. Psycho Chicken's spinner damaged it and so did Propeller-Head's. Snookums struggled to move, and was in trouble. The house robots attacked the chicken, Sergeant Bash setting it alight a few times, but Snookums stopped, and was reversed into the pit by Sir Killalot.
In the Tag Team Terror, it was alongside the loanerbot Bang, and was up against G-Force and Sir Force A Lot. It started by pushing G-Force, before tagging Bang, who was pushed onto the flames by G-Force and Sir Force A Lot. Bang then had a tyre punctured and Snookums' sword was broken. Sir Force A Lot, Shunt and Sir Killalot all attacked Snookums, the latter throwing it upside-down. Shunt than axed Snookums and the immobile Bang, before Sir Force A Lot pitted Bang, and Snookums, who was flipped.
Snookums also participated in the Robot Rebellion. It faced Medusa Oblongotta in the first round and finally managed to use its sword to lift Medusa Oblongotta up. Snookums then used its tail to entangle Medusa Oblongotta's blade and push it into the corner patrol zone where it was finished off by the house robots. In the second round, it faced Ninjitsu. Despite taking much punishment from Ninjitsu's blade, it still managed to use its sword to lift Ninjitsu up. A piece of Snookums' face got caught in Ninjitsu's blade, stopping it. Sergeant Bash then grabbed hold of Snookums' tail but it managed to get away and win on a judges decision.
It then faced house robots Dead Metal and Shunt in the final battle. It managed to stab Shunt with its sword but couldn't overturn it. Sir Killalot then entered the arena and picked Snookums up and tossed it onto its back where it couldn't self-right. Snookums was then picked up and spun around by Sir Killalot again. Snookums ended up in the drop zone, where a big organ landed on it and was then pitted along with Snake Bite.
