Xylon was an invertible wedge shaped robot from California.

It was not a successful performer, losing in Round 1 of Extreme Warriors: Season 2 and the Nickelodeon Robot Wars Mayhem competition, although it did beat Joker in a Vengeance battle.

The design of the flipper was claimed to be unique by commentator Stefan Frank, despite older robots such as Cassius and Firestorm using front hinged flippers to much greater success.

"Xylon" is the Greek word for "wood".


Xylon is an invertible wedge shaped robot. Its main weapon was a front hinged flipper and side skirts for extra defense. However, the flipper was not powerful enough and its aluminum checker-plate armour was weak as shown during its Mayhem battle.

Xylon is flipped over by Buzz

Xylon was up against Buzz and Tyranabot in Round 1. Immediately at the start of the fight, Xylon drove into the Disc of Doom and bent its wedge, leaving it unable to get under its opponents. Both Buzz and Tyranabot attacked Xylon and then Xylon drove over the low riding Buzz, whose lifter flipped Xylon on its side as one of the self-righters was opened. Xylon did self-right against the wall, where Matilda came in, but it broke free. However that incident led to the judges eliminating Xylon.

"It's going to be a close call!"
— Jim Moore, shortly before the Judges' decision was announced

Xylon, buckled from Propeller Head during the Mayhem battle

Xylon competed in the Mayhem against Rosie The Riveter 2 and Propeller-Head, but lost as its flipper was torn apart by Propeller-Head.

As a result, Team Tikos demanded a vengeance match against a spinner to prove it could beat one. The challenge was quickly taken up by Joker. At the start of the battle, both machines pushed each other. Joker pushed Xylon into Shunt, who flipped it twice. However, Xylon slammed into Joker, who broke down because its link fell out. Xylon had finally beaten a spinner.
