AIRED:
The #2 seeds, Pussycat are back! Alan and David Gribble made it all the way to the Grand Final of the 4th Wars only to lose to Chaos 2. Can they win again this year? Pussycat Seated: #2 From: Gloucester Weight: 97 kilos Weapons: Spinning Blade Strengths: Always Lands on its Feet Weaknesses: Exposed Tyres The Executioner From: Cambridgeshire Weight: 100 kilos Weapons: Hydrolic Cutting Blade Strengths: Powerful Weapon Weaknesses: Driving Ability Terrorhurtz From: Oxford Weight: 97 kilos Weapons: Powerful Axe Strengths: Experience Competitiors Weaknesses: Robot new to Arena Ming III From: Somerset Weight: 100 Kilos Weapons: Crushing Arm Strengths: Powerful Weaponry Weaknesses: Exposed Tyres Clawed Hopper From: Horns Cross Weight: 200 Kilos Weapons: Steel Claws Strengths: Weight Advantage Weaknesses: Slow and Sluggish (It's a Walker, I mean, a hopper!) Twister Weight: 100 Kilos Weapons: Spikes, Flywheel and Flipper Strengths: Multi-Weaponry Weaknesses: Thin Armor 101 Seated: #23 From: Northamptonshire Weight: 97 Kilos Weapons: Autonomous Spike Strengths: Strong and Tough Weaknesses: Traction Control Fluffy From: London Weight: 97 Kilos Weapons: Double Ended Spinning Axe Strengths: Destructive Weapon Weaknesses: Inexperience Eliminators Pussycat Vs Executioner House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda Pussycat came out and hit Executioner, but then Executioner grabbed hold of them with their beak. Pussycat escaped, drove over the flamepit and slammed into Executioner once again. Executioner recovered, but then Pussycat slammed them into the arena wall. Matilda came out with the flywheel and BANG! ripped the tip of Executioner's blade right off. Pussycat then pushed Executioner down the Pit and moves on to the next round. Terrorhurtz Vs Ming 3 House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda These two experienced teams had brought in new robots. Terrorhurtz had the most powerful axe in Robot Wars, and Ming III had a Razer-like beak. Both robots put their weapons to good use. However Terrorhurtz was able to get a few blows on Ming then they did. Ming dug their jaw into Terrorhurtz and roasted them onto the flame pit. From out of nowhere, Matilda came in and rear-ended Ming! This was so wrong. Refbot seperated Ming and Terrorhurtz from their deadlock. Terrorhurtz got moving, but then Dead Metal grabbed onto their axe. Matilda rear-ended Ming again as time ran out. She was given a red card. The judges decided to let Terrorhurtz go through. Clawed Hopper Vs Twister House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda (hope she's learned her lesson) Clawed Hopper started hopping towards Twister who had no idea how to stop the walking robot. It had all the most offensive weaponry in Robot Wars and they couldn't figure out how to stop a walker! Twister was able to drill a hole in Clawed Hopper's side, but then it just stopped completely. Refbot counted them out. This turned out to be the very first time a walker has ever won a battle. Clawed Hopper celebrated in the middle of the arena. Then as Dead Metal and Matilda were ripping Twister up, Clawed Hopper pressed the Pit Button. The House Robots seemed to be enjoying this as Clawed Hopper hopped and hopped and hopped while trying to put Twister down the Pit. Two hours later (just kidding) Twister was pitted. Clawed Hopper goes through. 101 Vs Fluffy House Robots: Dead Metal and Matilda (you can't get enough of them!) 101 hit Fluffy, causing one of their tracks to fall off. Fluffy slammed into 101 who was now limping. The lifting spikes were bent, they were driving in circles, but they were still mobile. Eventually it went to the judges. Fluffy by name, not by nature. Heat Semi Finals Pussycat Vs Clawed Hopper House Robots: Dead Metal and Shunt Clawed Hopper was lucky to be the first walking robot to get past round 1, but their luck is about to run out. They're up against the #2 seeds! Clawed Hopper tried their best, but Pussycat buried their blade into Clawed Hopper's spinning flail. The flail eventually broke off. Clawed Hopper was falling to pieces. Cease was called. Pussycat were the likely winners. Terrorhurtz Vs Fluffy House Robots: Sir Killalot and Shunt Terrorhurtz had adapted their robot with a long pole with a mace at the end that was used to protect their Plexiglass armor from getting ripped off. The Battle of the Axes began. Terrorhurtz axed Fluffy several times. Fluffy then drove around to the other side of Terrorhurtz, the side that didn't have the anti-spinning device. One masive blow ripped off Terrorhurtz's side plate and cracked open their gas valve. Terrorhurtz was dead, they were counted out. Sir Killalot then carried them over to the floor flipper, which flipped them over and over. Shunt then axed Terrorhurtz's underside and pushed Terrorhurtz into the Pit. Shunt tried to get his axe out of Terrorhurtz, but it got stuck. So Shunt ended up driving into the Pit along with them! HA! HA! Poor Shunt! Fluffy goes through to the Heat Final to face Pussycat. Heat Final Pussycat Vs Fluffy House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal A catfight: 2 blades, 2 awesome robots, 1 winner. At the start of the match, both robots were doing a great deal of pushing, until suddenly, their blades collided and Pussycat's blade blew right off! Pieces flew everywhere! It looked as if Fluffy was going to win, until suddenly...Fluffy stopped moving. They were dead! Refbot counted them out. Sir Killalot then carried Fluffy over to the floor flipper. Fluffy was like a rag doll, flying through the air and jumping around on the arena floor. Dead Metal then pushed Fluffy down the Pit, but then Dead Metal unleashed his inner idiot and drove down the Pit as well! Somebody better get the House Roboteers driving lessons! Pussycat, the #2 seeds go marching on!moreless
