Annihilator & House Robot Rebellion
AIRED:
The UK Championship has ended, but we still want to keep Robot Wars alive, and by doing that, we're going to have a little treat. We're going to have an Annihilator! 6 robots enter, only 1 can be champion! And if that's not enough, we're going to have a House Robot Rebellion! Gravity and Behemoth, the House Robots' worst enemies want revenge and they want it now!! SO LET THE WARS BEGIN!! Raging Knightmare From: Leichestershire Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.25M X 0.96M X 0.83M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Flipper Strengths: High Powered Weaponry Weaknesses: Lightweight Body Armor Team Captain: Nigel Pagey With: Lee and Malcolm Summers Robochicken From: Devon Weight: 99 Kilos Dimensions: 0.74M X 1.35M X 0.95M Power: 750W Electric Motor Weapons: Flipper and Spinning Disc Strengths: Weaponry Weaknesses: The Team Team Captain: Jason Snow With: Farren White and Alec Dick Ewe 2 From: Northamptonshire Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.42M X 0.91M X 0.66M Power: 24V Motors Weapons: Flipper Strengths: Very Strong Steel Frame Weaknesses: No Armour Underneath Team Captain: Ian Lockhart With: Scott Lockhart and Toby Torsel Kan-Opener From: Northamptonshire Weight: 98 Kilos Dimensions: 0.24M X 1.63M X 1.17M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Hydarulic Jaws Strengths: Interchangeable Jaws Weaknesses: Never Got Past 1st Round Team Captain: Andy Kane With: Tom Kane and Alistair O'Neil Flippa From: Oregon, USA Weight: 96 Kilos Dimensions: 0.21M X 1.00M X 0.89M Power: Electric Motors Weapons: Rotating Drum and Lifting Arm Strengths: Rotating Steel Drum Weaknesses: Wheels Use Drive Chains Team Captain: Joe Hurawski Ripper From: Staffordshire Weight: 100 Kilos Dimensions: 0.64M X 1.38M X 1.15M Power: 2 X 750W Electric Motors Weapons: Flipper Strengths: Good Driver Weaknesses: Thin Armour Team Roaming Robots Team Captain: John Findlay With: Steven Johnson and David Findlay Fight 1: Raging Knightmare Vs Robochicken Vs Ewe 2 Vs Kan-Opener Vs Flippa Vs Ripper House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda This first fight was pure hell. Ripper pretty much took out everybody! First, they flipped a headless Robochicken, then flipped Ewe 2 and Flippa up against the arena wall, then flipped Kan-Opener and Raging Knightmare up against another wall. The reining Annihilator Champions nearly fell out of the arena! However, Kan-Opener and Raging Knightmare recovered and the fight continued. Raging Knightmare pressed the Pit Button as Refbot was counting Robochicken out because they were immobile first. Kan-Opener then pitted Ewe 2, but Robochicken was already eliminated. Robots eliminated: Robochicken Special Event: House Robot Rebellion: Behemoth and Gravity Vs Growler, Cassius Chrome and Mr. Psycho Going up against the 3 biggest and newest robots in the Warzone is crazy, but the House Robots had underestimated the competitiors. Growler came out and slammed into Gravity, flipping them over, but Gravity flipped themselves back over. Refbot then pressed the Pit Button...and that's when things started to turn ugly. With the Pit opening, Cassius ended up driving onto the edge of the Pit, forcing Growler to reverse right on top of Gravity. Gravity then flipped the 375 kilos robo-dog over with the greatest of ease! HA HA! That's a first! Jonathan Pearce said, "Well, things aren't going according to plan." Mr. Psycho was infuriated for what Gravity had done to his dog, but Gravity wasn't finished. He then flipped Cassius and pushed HIM down the Pit! HA HA! Another first. Gravity then had a go at Refbot!...which he would later regret. Behemoth and Gravity went after Mr. Psycho, axing his backside and leaving many gashes in his armour. Mr. Psycho backed Gravity into a corner and Gravity tried to flip Mr. Psycho, but then were forced into the wall and Mr. Psycho started hammering away at Gravity, wrecking the flipper. Gravity was a dead dog (that makes 2, including Growler) Behemoth was all alone and that's bad news for a robot that has had so many disasters in the past. Behemoth was going down...or were they? Behemoth was now dealing with a spinning Cassius Chrome (Refbot helped him out after Gravity took care of him). Behemoth couldn't flip him so then they went after Mr. Psycho, axing and bending a large armour plate on Mr. Psycho's back. Mr. Psycho turned around and Behemoth's axe fell off. Cassius and Mr. Psycho chased Behemoth. Behemoth drove onto the floor flipper and it went off, but Behemoth recovered. Mr. Psycho continued hammering Behemoth and then Behemoth hid behind Gravity. They wanted to use Gravity's flipper to try and flip a House Robot over. But the House Roboteers had really cheated in this fight, covering the arena floor with oil. Cassius came in and ruined the competitiors' plans. Behemoth attacked Cassius again. Meanwhile, Mr. Psycho was just...sitting there. Cease! was called. Of course, this fight had no meaning to it, except carnage! Craig let the audience decide. Behemoth and Gravity obviously won. Fight 2: Raging Knightmare Vs Ewe 2 Vs Kan-Opener Vs Ripper Vs Flippa House Robots: Shunt and Matilda Raging Knightmare drove into the arena, then Ewe 2, then Kan-Opener, then Ripper, then Flippa...uh, Flippa? Flippa, where are you? Oh dear. Refbot gave the US robot a red card because their robot wasn't ready for the next round. The fight then started with Ewe 2 flipping Raging Knightmare and then Kan-Opener grabbed hold of Raging Knightmare and Ripper nearly flipped both robots over! It was a flipper frenzy out there in the warzone! Then Ripper flipped Ewe 2 over. Ewe 2 never recovered. Kan-Opener opened up the Pit and tried to push Raging Knightmare into it! They almost did, but then Refbot counted out Ewe 2 and Matilda hit Ewe 2 with their flywheel. Robots eliminated so far: Robochicken, Flippa, Ewe 2 Fight 3: Raging Knightmare Vs Kan-Opener Vs Ripper House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Dead Metal The Ripper and Kan-Opener teams were well-known buddies. John Findlay of the Ripper team once drove Kan-Opener. The seeded Raging Knightmare were in over the heads. Ripper and Kan-Opener all ganged up on Raging Knightmare, flipping them and tossing them around the arena. Kan-Opener dug their claws right into Raging Knightmare. Dead Metal then sawed into them and then Ripper pressed the Pit Release Button. Kan-Opener then tried to drop Raging Knightmare into the Pit, but they had dug their claws pretty deep into them. Ripper helped Kan-Opener get unstuck and the smoke vent in the Pit went off, signaling that Raging Knightmare was eliminated. Robots eliminated so far: Robochicken, Flippa, Ewe 2, Raging Knightmare Annihilator Final: Kan-Opener Vs Ripper House Robots: Matilda and Mr. Psycho These two good buddies were now about to face off. Ripper was flipping Kan-Opener all around the arena at first, but then they lost drive on one wheel and lost mobility. Kan-Opener then dug their claws into Ripper and pushed them into Mr. Psycho. Kan-Opener pressed the Pit Button and Mr. Psycho's hammer came down on top of Ripper. Kan-Opener buried his claws right into Ripper, bending and twisting their armour. Kan-Opener then started smoking. Refbot's timer flashed on. He was obviously counting Ripper out. The clock reached 10. Ripper was eliminated. Kan-Opener are the Annihilator Champions...for a 2nd year in a row!moreless
