- "If something goes wrong for you, then no doubt that Spanners had something to do with it"
- — Jonathan Pearce
Spanners is a fictional robot from the game Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction. It has the design of an invertible robot, although in the game, it cannot run both ways up despite having Large Sun wheels. Spanners is armoured with a yellow fibreglass shell and is equipped with a Diamond Edged horizontal flywheel at the front. It also does bear a slight resemblance to the Extreme Series 2 incarnation of the robot Chip.
In "Competition" mode, Spanners is available to buy after unlocking Stage 8 for 4250 credits.

Spanners is respectively agile, allowing you to come in on the attack head on with the disc, dodging other robots, and running away again. Spinning on its axis allows you to cause damage if any opponents approach you. Also to avoid any flippers in an annihilator is a useful tactic.
The easiest way to defeat Spanners is with a low tipped flipper to get in underneath and flip it, as it won't be able to self-right or run inverted. Also, its weak fibreglass shell is very easily ripped away, making it a very vulnerable target to other spinners and saws.
