Vercingetorix's weaponry seems to be useless. Attila takes damage from Razer as the audience chants for the Pit. Onslaught is knocked over by Spawn of Scutter, but self-rights. Spawn of Scutter rams Vercingetorix as Razer continues to hammer on Attila. Onslaught goes after Behemoth, while Stefan notes that Vercingetorix hasn't been doing much. At the end of the battle, Vercingetorix goes out. Battle 2 Razer vs. Behemoth vs. Attila the Drum vs. Onslaught vs. Spawn of Scutter Stefan comments that today's show is "looking like an All Star game" and that "these are some of the best robots in town." The battleboard is shown and then Battle 2 begins. Stefan notes that Attila is now using a mace instead of a pickaxe. 3... 2... 1... activate! Everyone seems to be after Razer at first. But then Behemoth begins pushing Spawn of Scutter onto the flame mat. Spawn of Scutter is then put on it's side and Razer is knocked over as well. Razer is flipped and then claws into Onslaught, then Behemoth. Onslaught flips Razer, but then himself, but he's able to self-right. Razer claws into Behemoth, then leaves. Attila keeps trying to slam the mace, but it's not doing much. Razer drills into Spawn of Scutter. At the end, Spawn of Scutter seems to be immobilized and the battleboard confirms that Spawn is eliminated. Battle 3 Razer vs. Behemoth vs. Attila the Drum vs. Onslaught At the beginning of the battle, after the battleboard is shown, it's revealed that Behemoth left early, apparently critically damaged. So they're actualy not in this match. Attila spins around in circles, but doesn't seem to connect with much. It's flipped, but it can run both ways. Attila continues to spin to try to keep the other two robots away. Onslaught continuously rams Attila and Razer comes in. Then Attila is lifted by Sir Killalot, but Killalot lets him go. Attila seems damaged though, so Razer goes after Onslaught. Attila sits around, obviously immobilized. Cease! The battleboard is shown. Behemoth's name is shimmering in red, as skull and crossbones symbols appear through both his and Attilas' names. Battle 4 Razer vs. Onslaught Razer comes in, as Onslaught gets caught underneath Razer's piercer. Razer pushes him around, then Onslaught gets away, but is quickly back in Razer's grasp. They dance for a while, then Onslaught comes back in and Razer buries the claw and shuttles Onslaught around. Onslaught's tires are falling apart. He rams into Matilda, who flips against the side of the wall. He can't self right... so now Razer goes after Matilda! Razer buries his claw straight into Matilda as Sergeant Bash comes in to try to stop Razer. Flames start coming out of Matilda, as Razer tears away at her shell. Stefan calls it "the first decimation of a house robot I have ever seen in Robot Wars." One of the house robots hits the Pit trigger offscreen. Sir Killalot actually aids in the destruction of Matilda, pushing her towards the flame mat. Sergeant Bash pushes her away. Dead Metal grabs Onslaught, then drops him in the Pit. All of the house robots go after Razer, as Matilda sits immboilized and Refbot uses a fire extinguisher on her. Before the house robots can do any damage to Razer, "Cease!" is called and Razer uses his claw to give a bow as Team Razer celebrates. After the recap of the battle, Joanie talks and then a funeral fanfare begins playing. In the center of the screen is a shiny Matilda under a glimmering spotlight. Her memorial appears: R.I.P. MATILDA DESTROYED IN ACTION as a solemn-voiced announcer intones "Let's remember Matilda, in her gleaming, shiny armor. Matilda, robot in pieces, destroyed in action..." There's a sound effect of a record needle scratching off its groove as ...OR WAS SHE? appears after DESTROYED IN ACTION and a voice asks "Huh?" As Matilda appears, heavily bandaged and spinning around, Stefan Frank announces, "She's back, she's bad, she's mad and she's looking for revenge!"moreless
