Hello all, this is ToastUltimatum, your fellow Yorkshire administrator.
Despite me being among the newer portion of the community, I've actually had somewhat of a connection with this site since its beginnings.
When Robot Wars Wiki was first being created, Christophee asked two fellow Robot Wars fans he know on Wikipedian, CBFan and Izzy259, to help out with this task. CBFan got in there pretty quickly, but Izzy259 didn't. As you may have figured by now, Izzy259 was indeed me, at just 10 years of age. Contrary to belief, I was not a girl, my young age made me think Izzy was a shorthand for Isaac ¬_¬
But no matter. If asked why I never joined this place, I honestly have no idea at all. I now know that I ought to have, this site would have been a great learning opportunity, as well as one to help the wiki as much as a 10-year-old could, and it would kick-start me into full-on wiki editing, which I now enjoy committing to.
Eventually, I did join the site under the poor username of Torngentleman2, where I added a quote from S3's team captain as to why S3 didn't compete in Series 7, and made the Robot Wars: The Sixth Wars/Heat G article. After that, I disappeared once more.
In September 2012, I finally committed myself to Robot Wars Wiki, with the ToastUltimatum account. You might have heard of it.
Top 15 RobotsEdit
|15||Shredder||I do like Shredder Evolution, of course, but it is mainly down to its predecessor Shredder, as to why I like the series so much. Shredder, a fairly weak looking machine, was clearly beating the seeded Mousetrap 2, before defeating itself in an admittedly funny way in Series 5, and it especially proved itself in Series 6. Shredder performed well in the first-round melee, managing to easily out-score Armadrillo, coming close to out-scoring S3 by the end of the match, which took terrible punishment in the CPZ, being kept there by Shredder. It was Shredder’s battle against The Alien that was the most impressive, as despite having an effectively useless weapon, it managed to come back from an initial deficit, and defeat the destructive The Alien, using nothing more than the power of ramming it, and the CPZ. Shredder even performed well at the start of its heat final, before unfortunately getting stuck, opening itself up for damage. The Shredder team laughed at damage they took, even attacking S3 after Shredder had already been defeated, all of which contributes to Shredder taking the title of my 15th favourite robot. With some help from Shredder Evolution.|
|14||Philliper 2||In my time on the Internet, most people act so strongly against Philliper 2. It beat Panzer Mk 2 fairly, it beat Black Hole fairly, why complain? Not only were they legitimate wins, they were surprising and entertaining wins. I already knew it would beat Panzer Mk. 2 when I watched that fight, but with Black Hole, I'd actually read somewhere that Black Hole really did win, so the surprise was even more brilliant. Philipper also provided a good showing in the Dutch series, particularly its battle with Bamm Bamm in the first series.|
|13||Gravity||With me being such a fan of flippers, I couldn’t not include Gravity within my Top 15 robots. Gravity wielded immense power in UK Series 7, and Robot Wars simply would not be the same without it.|
|12||NEATer Machine||NEATer Machine is somewhat of a recent discovery for me. I mainly ignored it when re-watching Dutch Series 1, and it was only when watching Dutch Series 2, I thought to myself; “Hold on, two rams? Wow, that thing looks menacing.” Neater, as it was called at the time, then proved exactly that, and sunk straight through Hard, before moving onto Blackdevil Warzone. Despite this being a less destructive battle than the last, this performance impressed me more, as Blackdevil Warzone’s armour looked to be some serious defence. Indeed, not even Dead Metal’s saw could get through Blackdevil Warzone’s armour, yet Neater still had the power to puncture it. Neater’s battle with Lizzard is one that I am still undecided on the outcome of, with more damage caused, and a very enjoyable fight. The air horn was a nice touch, and whether it was NEAT Machine’s fault or not, it was present for the greatest destruction of a robot in the history of the show; Matilda attacking Shapeshifter.|
|11||S3||I’m more the kind of Robot Wars fan to tell a driver to lay off an opponent once it’s defeated, and let their opponents keep their robots in one piece, but sometimes, you need some destruction on the show. S3 was one of my preferred robots to provide this, and while I would have liked to see Plunderbird 5 come out alive, the damage it caused to Mousetrap 2 and Wild Thing make me credit it. I happened to like its Series 6 battle with Sir Chromalot a lot, though perhaps more down to Sir Chromalot’s performance.|
|10||Robochicken||Robochicken and its team's barrage of puns and humourous appearance never failed to entertain, and the other thing that makes me so fond of it is that it could easily pass for a sacrificial robot, yet was far better than any would expect, very nearly reaching the Series Semi-Finals.|
|9||Dantomkia||Dantomkia is just one of those robots I can’t deny that I really like. Both its battle with Tornado and Terrorhurtz and its battle with Wild Thing 2 and 13 Black are up there with my favourites, and to summarise easily; How could I not like a robot that got nine robots out of the arena within just two series, plus Extreme 2? Dantomkia also had a fantastic pullback, which is probably my favourite, even though I try to claim X-Terminator 2 is my favourite.|
|8||Blade||Lots of people regard Blade as one of the worst Series Semi-Finalists in the history of Robot Wars, alongside other robots such as Trident and Mousetrap. But I think this is unjust, Blade took advantage of an offensive style I don’t always enjoy, in that it is a brute force pushing robot. Sure, Blade had that lawnmower blade, which still did more damage than people credit it for, but not that much. What I liked about Blade is that it could overpower its opponents, and push them from the other side of the arena straight into the pit, even if this was after cease, which was impressive power for Series 3 standards. Blade had especially strong armour for its time, was durable and reliable, and I find it to be terribly underrated.|
|7||Infinity||I’m certainly not ranking Infinity here because of its performance in Series 6, but because of Extreme 2. And even there, it did very little in its battles with Tiberius 3 and Fluffy, but in its battle with Infernal Contraption, it showed exactly what it could do. Infernal Contraption is hardly the top class of robot, yet Infinity managed to provide high-paced and exciting action, despite being nothing more than a box on wheels with a completely ineffective set of pincers. A box, maybe, but it seemed to be an invincible box, not even robots like 259 and Razer could damage it. The team were a laugh, too.|
|6||Raging Knightmare||Well, they had to stuff something up against Tornado. Raging Knightmare was very lucky to get the success it did, it got its heat very easy. The Executioner did most of the work in Round 1 before breaking down, Revenge of Trouble & Strife only needed one flip (and that took long enough), and Spawn Again beat itself. But because of all this, as well as having a good back-catalogue of robots I like including Raging Reality, I've grown to really like the robot. The way it flipped Spawn Again out of the arena was very stylish, and I like its simplistic, yet stylish design. I made a replica of it in my childhood, that was fun too.|
|5||Mega Morg||I was first introduced to Mega Morg by its Minibot, which I found to be the nicest looking, and could perform an effective OotA on other minibots, In actuality, Mega Morg's flipper was absolute codswallop that only activated 3 seconds after their opponent had driven off them. But I still liked the robot's design, and the team were great fun.|
|4||13 Black||Darn, that pullback looked real. 13 Black had great aesthetics, put up a strong effort against Razer, was one of only 3 unseeded Series Semi-Finalists in Series 6. Its Losers’ Melee in Series 6 was also very funny. Trivia, I almost named my Robot Wars Wiki account 13 Black, but I just edged for ToastUltimatum in the end for the sakes of consistency between Wikis.|
|3||Atomic||Atomic doesn't strike you as a potential Grand Finalist, but if it just managed to flip Typhoon 2, it would've got there. And having thought about it in detail, there are actually quite a lot of robots in the Semi-Finals of Series 7 I reckon it could beat. Specifically, in my opinion, it would beat M2, The Grim Reaper, St. Agro, Thermidor 2, Bulldog Breed III, Mute, Tough As Nails, and Raging Knightmare for sure, and I personally believe it could beat Dantomkia, Typhoon 2, should a rematch be a thing, possibly Storm II with some luck, and I’m unsure about Gravity. Great flipping power, and a robot that my overall favourite M2 is very justified to lose to.|
|2||Mute||I like Mute, not just for its self-righting antics, but because it had some surprisingly high flipping power. It could chuck Roobarb and Storm 2 way across the arena, but because of the way the flipper is hinged, it didn't get to prove this many times, despite finding itself winning a Heat in Series 7. Generally, every fight containing Mute was entertaining. Except maybe Mute vs. Cedric Slammer.|
|1||M2||M2 takes the place as my favourite robot for a few reasons. If you were to read the list below this one, you should see a few reasons why M2 is my favourite robot, but I can state more here. M2 wasn't exactly the most powerful flipper, but it knew how to use it, managing to get two OotA's in one battle, and of course, its presence in two entries on the list below. M2 has also had some good live fights, such as its fight with Chaos 2, where I would have called M2 the winner. The colour-scheme is nice, and did very well to get to the stage it did in Series 7.|

Robot Wars Let's PlaysEdit
On YouTube, I go by the name of TaleOfTheToaster, where I make Let's Plays. If you don't know what one of those is, it's a playthrough of a video game while commentating over the top of it. While I mainly make Let's Plays of Nintendo games, previous LP's including Mario Tennis: Power Tour and Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the ones you're most likely to care about are my Let's Plays of Robot Wars video games. I've made Let's Plays of both Robot Wars: Metal Mayhem and Robot Wars: Advanced Destruction.
