Episode Summary

EDIT
Robot Wars Extreme: Show 5
AIRED:
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! Thermidor then flipped Stinger, launching them into the air. Spinning didn't save Stinger. Thermidor II flipped them out of the arena as well, nearly taking out the camera! It was the first time 2 robots had been thrown out of the arena in a single battle. Thermidor II move on to the Annihalator! Fight 3: Wild Card Warrior: King B Powerworks Vs Draven Draven is a new bot on the block. It has a large crushing beak and looks really cool, but King B Powerworks had the experience, the weapons and the speed. They pitted Draven. Watch out for Draven in the future though! Fight 4: Vengeance: Firestorm 3 Vs Diotoir The reason for this grudge match was because Dr. Zulu from the Diotoir team was making fun of the Firestorm team for being girly boys (especially when they always get their hair done before the event). Later, Zulu yanked out some wires from Firestorm's flipper. It was all shown on a security camera. That's it! To the warzone! Of course, the fight was cake for Firestorm. Diotoir hardly did a thing. They were flipped over and over and eventually burned to a crisp. Refbot counted them out. Firestorm were the winners. On to the next fight! Although they still had time to take a shot of Hazel and Alex in their dressing room, getting their hair done! Main Event: Armed Forces Special: Mega Hurts (Navy) Vs Anvil (Royal Air Force) Vs Rhino (Army) The tank robot, Rhino looked like a pretty good robot, flattening Anvil and Mega Hurts and pushing them around the arena. The fight was pretty dull though. Eventually Mega Hurts was pushed down the Pit. Anvil then ripped off Rhino's track. Anvil and Rhino both fell into the Pit as well. The judges decided that Rhino went in first so Anvil from the Royal Air Force wins.moreless
