5x28 Heat K (September 27, 2002)


CHALLENGE BELT: Tornado vs Wild Thing A very close battle with both robors doing a lot of shoving and some damage to each other. It also seemed that there was more fighting in the Wild Thing roboteerng box with Isabelle and Jake Adams fighting over who was doing the weaponry controls. The battle went to the judges. The judges decided the winner on aggression and it went to Tornado and now they keep the Challenge Belt. TAG TEAM TERROR: Diotoir and Pussycat vs Spawn Again and Comengetorix Mega Morg was in no shape to fight, so Pussycat agreed to fight with Diotoir. Pussycat's blade wasn't working as well but it didn't stop it being aggressive. Comengetorix didn't seem to be working properly either. Spawn Again broke down and was counted out. It looked like there was only one winner, Diotoir and Pussycat! They meet Suicidal Tendencies and Steel Avenger in the final. WILD CARD WARRIORS: Dominator 2 vs The Executioner The Executioner pressed the Pit Button. Then guess what? It drove d

It's the All Star quarter finals! Fight 1: Chaos 2 Vs Wheely Big Cheese Chaos 2 From: Branford, Ipswtch Seated: #1 and Reining Champion Weight: 83 Kilos Demensions: 0.9M X 0.71M X 0.38M Power: 2 X 800W Motors Weapons: Pnumatic Flipper Strengths: Unbeaten In Competition Weaknesses: Limited Co2 Supply Wheely Big Cheese From: Somerset Seated: #10 Weight: 99 kgs Dimensions: 17' X 56' X 42' Power: 2 X Golf Caddy Motors Weapons: High Pressure Flipper Strengths: Self-Righting Mechanism Weaknesses: Exposed Tyres Yes, these two teams fought before in series 3, but the team from Somerset had The Big Cheese. Wheely Big Cheese was a good robot with a big flipper, but right now, it was still recovering from ints onslaught with Hypno-Disc. Chaos 2 kept on flipping Wheely Big Cheese and it didn't seem that Wheely Big Cheese's flipper was working at full power. Chaos 2 dominated this battle and it went to the judges and they went for Chaos 2. Fight 2: Firestorm III Vs

5x26 Heat I (September 06, 2002)


Tonight's main event is the House Robot Rebellion! The House Bots are sick and tired of being in their Corner Patrol Zones all the time and doing nothing. They want to take on someone just for fun! Who? Well, that's the problem. Everyone seems to be too scared of the House Bots. Who's brave enough to take them on? Hypno-Disc? Chaos 2? Stinger? We'll find out!

5x24 Heat G (August 23, 2002)


The Annihalator! 6 robots go in, but only 1 robot will become the new Annihalator champion. Fight 1: Hypno-Disc Vs Pussycat Vs Thermidor II Vs Splinter Vs Arnold A. Teeminegger Vs X-Terminator 2 All the axe robots ganged up on Hypno-Disc, including Splinter, who Hypno-Disc had destroyed in Series 4. It looked like the spin-to-winners were losing, until Splinter pushed Thermidor into the CPZ. Thermidor broke down and they were out of the Annihalator. At least we're having lobster for dinner! Robots eliminated so far: Thermidor II Fight 2: Once again, everyone ganged up on Hypno-Disc. The 5-minute time limit expired, but this fight wasn't over until someone was immobilized, and pretty soon someone was: X-Terminator. They wore out the batteries and broke down. Refbot counted X-Terminator out. Robots eliminated so far: Thermidor II; X-Terminator 2 Fight 3: Hypno-Disc never got going. Pussycat pushed them down the Pit, but then Splinter pushed Pussycat down the Pit as well! Oh, well. Robo

5x23 Heat F (August 16, 2002)


Plunderbird and Sir Chromalot: 2 robots with teams who are funny and cool at the same time. Okay, so their robots aren't that good, but they do hate each other. Vengeance will be settled in the Warzone tonight!! TAG TEAM TERROR: Sumpthing & SMIDSY vs Thermidor II & Cerberus Thermidor II was wearing a Robot Wars hat in this fight. It's amazing that his hat didn't burn up because SMIDSY and Sumpthing looked the strongest untill SMIDSY got stuck in first driver and Sumpthing got flipped onto its spikes by Thermidor II. Both robots were counted out. Thermidor II and Cerberus go through to the next round. CHALLENGE BELT: Behemoth vs Tornado Tornado was easily the strongest and pushed and shoved Behemoth around. Behemoth fought back later on by flipping Tornado up against the arena side wall. They reversed to try and flip Tornado out of the arena, but then Matilda came in smacked into Behemoth with her flywheel. Tornado well off the wall and continued pushing Behemoth around the arena.

5x22 Heat E (July 12, 2002)


Tonight's main event is the Armed Forces Special. 3 very good robots from the Royal Forces compete, but first, we should start with a few other battles like a Tag-Team qualifyer. Fight 1: Tag Team Terror: Bigger Brother and Plunderbird 5 Vs Spawn Again and Comengetorix Before the fight even started, Plunderbird slammed into the arena door, damaging it and the robot. So Bigger Brother got a substitute partner: Major Tom. Bigger Brother and Major Tom Vs Spawn Again and Comengetorix Spawn Again immediately flipped Major Tom over. Major Tom didn't have a self-righter, so they were stuck there. Bigger Brother flipped them back over, but Major Tom never moved. They were counted out, flipped and pitted. Spawn Again and Comengetorix automatically advance. Fight 2: Mayhem: Thermidor II Vs Behemoth Vs Stinger Thermidor flipped Stinger, then had a go at Behemoth. Suddenly, they flipped Behemoth's back end, sending the box-shaped robot sommersaulting over and over and out of the arena! Therm

5x21 Heat D (June 14, 2002)


Tonight's main event is the Ultimate Vengeance between the World Champs, Razer and the #2 Seeds, Pussycat. In the Heat B Final in Series 4, Pussycat attacked Razer after they broke down. Not cool. Razer wants Vengeance and they'll get it, but first, an All-Star fight.

5x20 Heat C (June 07, 2002)


ALL STAR: Firestorm III Vs Panic Attack House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal Firestorm pinned Panic Attack against the wall. Panic Attack never recovered. ALL STAR: Behemoth Vs Hypno-Disc House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Dead Metal Dead Metal was given a yellow card for attacking Behemoth. When Dead Metal attacked Behemoth again, he was given a red card and sent back to his CPZ! Behemoth pushed Hypno-Disc onto the flame pit and Hypno-Disc broke down. MAYHEM: Wild Thing Vs Arnold A. Terminegger Vs Fluffy House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Sir Killalot Fluffy broke down. They were placed onto the floor flipper and flipped into the Pit! Wild Thing and Arnold A. fought until time ran out. The judges decided to let Arnold A. go through to the Annihilator. CHALLENGE BELT: Behemoth Vs Stinger House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal (if DM attacks Behemoth, it's off to the showers) Behemoth clamped Stinger in place with his scoop and axe and pushed Stinger into the Pit.

5x19 Heat B (May 31, 2002)


Tonight's Main Event was a Mayhem battle featuring 3 awesome robots: Wheely Big Cheese, Hypno-Disc and the now Razer-esque Ming III. However, the robot to look out for is definitely Hypno-Disc. Yes, they did have some problems in the Series 4 Grand Final, but now they're back and better than ever! As the show starts, we see some shocking, horrifying, out of this world scenes of Hypno-Disc absolutely demolishing other robots like Robogeddon, Stealth and Predator. Can anything stop Hypno-Disc? Tag Team Terror: King B3 and 101 defended their Tag Team title last year despite going up against each other after beating Firestorm II and Scorpion. Can they defend their title? House Robots: Sgt. Bash & Shunt Diotoir From: Dublin, Ireland Seated: #21 Weight: 93 kilos Dimensions: 1.17M X 1.04M X 0.39M Power: 50cc Petrol Engine Weapons: Wedge & Scoop Strengths: Low Ground Clearance Weaknesses: FLAMMABLE!

5x18 Heat A (May 24, 2002)


Tonight's Main Event was a Challenge Belt competition. Behemoth is a very tough robot to beat. In fact he should have been the World Champion instead of Razer! So the World Association of Robotics (WARS; no surprise) gave them the Robot Wars Challenge Belt. If they can hold on to the belt for 3 battles, they can take it home, other wise, they lose the belt. Battle 1: Vengence Match House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal This was a grudge match to decide which robot was better. Stinger had a feeling they were going to win because they were seated #5 and Tornado were only seated #12. However, Tornado now had a trick up its sleeve. Their ramming spike had been replaced by a 2,000 rpm spinning disc? Terrifying! Tornado From: Huntington in Cambridgeshire Weight: 97 kgs Demensions: 0.85M X 0.7M X 0.25M Power: 2 X 750W Motors Weapons: Spinning Disc Strengths: Invertable Weaknesses: Easily Flipped Team: Andrew Marchant - David Gamble - Bryan Moss Stinger From: Lincoln

5x17 Armed Forces Special (January 01, 0001)


Fight 1: Anvil Vs Shockwave Vs Sub-Version Shockwave drove themselves down the Pit! Fight 2: Mega-Hurts Vs Oblark Vs Rhino Mega-Hurts knocked out Rhino's battery. Rhino went flying off the floor flipper. The army soldier doll that was inside the tank was thrown out and pushed onto the flamepit by Refbot! HA HA HA! Fight 3: Anvil Vs Oblark Anvil slammed Oblark into the arena wall. Shunt axed Oblark and flipped them over. They self-righted magnificiantly with the axe/flipper, but went a bit too far and got stuck nose down. Anvil pressed the Pit button. Oblark's flipper flew off. The fire fighters didn't have life left in their robot. They were counted out, burned by Sir Killalot and pitted. Fight 4: Mega-Hurts Vs Sub-Version House Robots: Shunt and Sir Killalot The fight between the navy. Mega-Hurts was fast and nimble. Sub-Version was destructive and agressive. Their harpoons weren't working for a while, but the spinning propeller in the back was. Sub-Version eventually broke

5x15 Robot Wars Extreme: Show 15 (February 08, 2002)


Fight 1: Bigger Brother Vs Hypno-Disc In the beginning, Hypno-Disc was causing major damage to Bigger Brother, tearing off armor, wrecking the flipper, etc. And then, by accident, they drove right over the edge of the Pit! Bigger Brother, who unbelieveably was still alive, pushed them in! Bigger Brother celebrated. However, their flipper was wrecked, so all they could do was spin. Fight 2: Firestorm Vs Razer Firestorm slammed into Razer who dug his claw into Firestorm. Firestorm pushed Razer right past the edge of the Pit and into Sgt. Bash. Then they jammed Razer under the angle grinder. Refbot freed them. Firestorm pushed Razer into Bash again. Throughout all this, Razer was burying his claw into the scratched and dirty Firestorm again and again. Finally, Firestorm pushed Razer into Shunt just as time ran out. The fight was very close, but Razer won. Fight 3: Playoffs: Firestorm Vs Hypno-Disc A possible grudge match from the previous episode. Firestorm was a total mess. Their f

Firestorm was flipped and pitted. Panic Attack VS Pussycat The #2 seeds fought strong and beat Panic Attack on a judges' decision. Losers' Melee Wheely Big Cheese Vs Firestorm Vs Panic Attack WBC broke down. Firestorm beat Panic Attack on a judges' decision. Dominantor 2 Vs Hypno-Disc Hypno-Disc got a few hits in on Dominator, and then spent the rest of the fight doing nothing. Blah! Hypno-Disc won and moves on to the Grand Final. Firestorm Vs. Pussycat Firstorm moves on to the Grand Final after beating Pussycat, but their robot was a mess.

5x13 Robot Wars Extreme: Show 13 (January 25, 2002)


Fights: Bigger Brother Vs S3 Bigger Brother simply drove underneath S3 and chucked them around the arena and eventually threw them straight out. This was a quick fight, as Bigger Brother moves on to the next round! Chaos 2 Vs Wild Thing Chaos 2 flipped WT over and over, shoving them and flipping them all around the arena. At one point, Wild Thing NEARLY pushed Chaos 2 down the pit! OH! It was so close! Chaos continued flipping Wild Thing around the arena. Then Wild Thing pushed Chaos 2 towards the Pit again. This time, they came so close, the smoke vent in the Pit went off! Cease was called after a few more wild flips. Chaos 2 still won on a judges' decision. Razer Vs Spawn Again Razer kept puncturing Spawn Again with the beak. After more and more punctures, Spawn Again then drove down the pit. How sily! Losers' Melee S3 Vs Spawn Again Vs Wild Thing Spawn Again and Wild Thing were being ripped apart by S3. S3 ripped off Spawn Again's flipper blade and caused major damage to W

A wounded Firestorm moves on to the next round.

5x03 Robot Wars Extreme: Show 3 (November 09, 2001)


Fight 1: S3 Vs Plunderbird The Plunderbird team said that Plunderbird 5 was the robot that was going to win. At the beginning of the fight, they pushed the hammer-head shark like robot around the arena into the CPZ. However, S3's vertical disc was already causing major damage to Plunderbird. Eventually, Plunderbird stopped moving. S3's disc ripped up Plunderbird's armor and disintegrating it like tin foil. Eventually the wheels fell off. Plunderbird was no more. They were flipped through the air next to the Pit and were out. S3 goes through. Fight 2: Stinger (Seated 5th) Vs Hippobotomus The Hippobotomus robot was built out of a hippo-shaped sand box. Because of its plastic construction, the only damage they tried to cause to Stinger was to themselves. Stinger pounded Hippobotomus again and again. The Hippo was falling apart. Dead Metal then sliced through the Hippo's cover. The fight went to the judges who decided Stinger to go through. The girl on the Hippobotomus team (She used
