The Trial was a challenge set in the second round of each heat in the first two UK series of Robot Wars. After one robot had been eliminated in The Gauntlet, the five remaining robots would compete in one of eleven different Trial events, which would alternate from week to week. The worst performing robot would be eliminated, leaving four robots to move onto the Arena.

Both the Trial and the Gauntlet were scrapped after the second series of the show when the format was changed to a straight knock-out competition. However, some of the events remained as side competitions in future series.
