Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show
Silver Box was a loaner robot who fought in the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors. It was a box-shaped robot armed with a large cutting disc at the front. In the first Extreme Warriors, it was driven by Team Vicious, drivers of The Brute. Its only appearance in Season 1 was in the House Robot Rebellion where it made it to the final battle only to be thrown into the Pit by Sir Killalot, who then toppled over.
Silver Box's only other appearance was in the US vs UK Tag Team Terror competition in Nickelodeon Robot Wars. However, this time it was covered in purple fur with long stalky eyes and wings, had the top two wheels removed and fought under the name Zanzara (Latin for mosquito). It fought alongside Run Away, and was driven by Team Run Amok's sister team Team Creative Steel.
Run Away and Zanzara lost the first round of the Tag Team, but Run Away did not survive for the playoff (nor did Kat 3). Zanzara was not powerful enough to take Bigger Brother one single-handedly, so the team lost to take 4th place overall.
- "Zanzara's blade was just a piece of sheet metal with a slit cut into it. It was not capable of doing any damage. The 'loanerbots' were not intended to be competitive."
- — Aaron Joerger
Silver Box swiftly closed the gap and cut into Close Enough, who had not moved off the arena wall. Shunt shoved it out, and Silver Box kept cutting away at the exposed frame of Close Enough. By now, it became clear that Close Enough was not going to move. Close Enough was counted out swiftly by Refbot, putting Silver Box through with fellow loanerbot Tut Tut, as well as the two machines of Team Juggerbot.
It spent the majority of the Robot Rebellion attacking Matilda, ripping up her fiberglass shell. After Matilda was rammed onto her side by Tricerabot, Sir Killalot entered the fight and picked up Silver Box with his claw. But just as he was about to put Silver Box into the Pit, he lost his balance and Tricerabot toppled Sir Killalot forward, sending both robots tumbling into the Pit.
Zanzara competed solely in the International Tag Team Terror, paired up with Run Away.
In the first round qualifier, Zanzara and Run Away were drawn against Team Logicom, and their two robots The Revolutionist and Spin Doctor. Zanzara and Spin Doctor bashed into each other and some bits fell off Zanzara. The impact also disabled both robots' weapons, so The Revolutionist came out of the CPZ and started spinning. Zanzara hit the pit release button, but the Revolutionist hit it in the rear and sent Zanzara spinning. As the pit descended, The Revolutionist hit Zanzara in the rear again. Zanzara was then flipped on its side by Matilda and counted out by the Refbot. Zanzara and Run Away, who had also been immobilised, were placed on the floor flipper and the two bots flew through the air at the same time. The battle ended with Shunt attempting to pit both robots.
Zanzara and Run Away were due to fight the British team Bigger Brother and Kat 3 for the playoff, but both Run Away and Kat 3 were forced to withdraw due to damage sustained in the qualifiers, leaving Zanzara and Bigger Brother to fight alone. However, Zanzara had weapon problems at the very start of the fight, so it decided to try to evade Bigger Brother. The British robot managed to flip it around the arena on several occasions, pushed it into the house robots and even got it caught on its side against the arena wall, although an attack by Shunt managed to re-right it. Zanzara managed to survive the full five minutes, but as it had been on the defensive the entire battle, the resulting judges' decision went against it.
