Heat 9
AIRED:
The former UK champs and #8 seeds, Panic Attack are back with a brand new robot, flatter, cooler, stronger...slower...one with no self-righter....but, hey! It's painted G-o-o-o-ol-l-l-ld! And everyone likes gold better than yellow, right?

House Robots: Shunt and Sir Killalot Panic Attack lifted Kronic up and ROCS buried his jaw into Kronic, but then Corkscrew came in and WHAM! slammed into Panic Attack so hard, that one of their side skirts flew off! Corkscrew then slammed into Kronic, bending one of Kronic's flippers. Kronic quickly pressed the Pit Button. Corkscrew flew off of Kronic and fell right down the Pit! Kronic then went after ROCS and flipped the Razer look-a-like over. They couldn't self-right and were leaking hydrualic fluid all over the arena, so they were counted out by Refbot, then flipped through the air on the floor flipper. Kronic then flipped Panic Attack over. Kronic was the only robot mobile as Sir Killalot picked ROCS up and dumped them into the pit. Panic Attack got lucky this fight! He and Kronic go through. Down in the Pits, the Corkscrew team were angry about losing after they were the ones doing all the work. They demanded to see the tape of the battle, so they did. It's obvious, isn't it? They drove themselves into the Pit! Fight 2: A-Kill Vs Reptirron the 2nd Vs Sabre Tooth Vs Terrorhurtz House Robots: Growler and Shunt Cool! Terrorhurtz, the most powerful axe robot in Robot Wars is back and ready for action! Can they win the 6th Wars? Well, at the start of the match, they were relentlessly axing A-Kill again and again. Eventually, one of A-Kill's discs fell off. Meanwhile, Sabre Tooth and Reptirron were...well, doing nothing. They were just driving around or not moving at all. Terrorhurtz then started axing Sabre Tooth over and over again, ripping off parts of their armor. Then Terrorhurtz started axing Reptirron. Reptirron pushed Terrorhurtz onto the flame pit. Sabre Tooth was counted out for being immobile. Terrorhurtz then went back to axing A-Kill. Reptirron was going WAY too slow and were counted out. Growler pressed the Pit Button and nearly drove in! Shunt then pitted Sabre Tooth. Terrorhurtz and A-Kill go through. Fight 3: A-Kill Vs Panic Attack House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt Oh, this fight was awful. It was too boring. Panic Attack picked A-Kill up and started pushing them around the arena. A-Kill tried to fight back with their self-righter. Obviously, THAT wasn't going to work. A-Kill was pushed into the CPZ. Shunt axed A-Kill. Panic Attack then carried A-Kill into the Pit Release and pitted him. Panic Attack is through to the Heat final. Fight 4: Kronic 2 Vs Terrorhurtz House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Growler This fight was a lot better than the other one. Terrorhurtz kept pounding Kronic again and again and again, then pushing them into Sgt. Bash. When Terrorhurtz's axe stopped working, they pushed Kronic around the arena and onto the flame pit. The blood on Kronic's horns started to burn. Kronic was then pushed into the CPZ. Kronic's flipper flew up, sending some of its horns flying as Growler suddenly jumped on top of Kronic. DOWN, BOY! Growler fell off of Kronic and knocked all its horns off. Terrorhurtz pressed the Pit Button. Sgt. Bash then dug his jaw into Kronic. Terrorhurtz then hit Bash's backside and it fell off. HA! Bash's power link was exposed. If pulled out, Bash would be immobilized, but nobody seamed to care as Refbot counted Kronic out. Growler bit Kronic's wheel cover off and then Kronic came back to life, but then drove onto the flame pit and caught fire again. Cease is called and Refbot extinguished the flames on Kronic. Terrorhurtz goes through to the final! Final: Terrorhurtz Vs Panic Attack House Robots: Matilda and Shunt (what happened to his scoop?) The #8 seeds were eliminated horribly. Terrorhurtz pounded them over and over and over with the axe. PA was pushed into Shunt's CPZ and got stuck. Refbot counted out PA. Shunt axed PA several times and then here's comes the beautiful Matilda! WHAM! One hit from the flywheel ripped PA's lid off, sending it flying into the camera. PA was then flipped on the floor flipper and then Shunt pushed them onto the Drop Zone where a washing machine fell on PA. The ex-champions actually came to and tried to escape the washer, but didn't make it! Aw, well. Terrorhurtz celebrated. They're through to the series semi-finals!moreless
