AIRED:
It's an international competition between the United Kingdom and Germany. Can the UK win again or will the German flag rise above the arena?

Ansgar's Revenge Weight: 200 Kilos (It's a walker with a lot of legs!) Dimensions: 0.17M X 0.84M X 0.92M Power: 4 X 750W Motors Weapons: Lifting Spears Strengths: Heavy and Fast Weaknesses: Untested Team Captain: Joachim Thomson With: Bunje and Sascha Thomson UK Fight 1: Jugeshread 2 1/2 Vs 259 House Robots: Growler and Sgt. Bash 259 was too awesome for the unreliable Judgeshread robot. They were ripped apart and eventually Growler got a hold of them. Suddenly, both robots stopped moving. Growler pushed 259 into the Pit Button and 259 got moving again, but Judgeshread was totally dead. Refbot counted them out. Growler moved Judgeshread to the floor flipper and flipped them. Growler then pushed Growler down the Pit. 259 goes through to the next round! German Fight 1: Delldog Vs Dynamite House Robots: Dead Metal and Sir Killalot This fight was over pretty quickly too. Delldog's disc wasn't working, but they were able to push Dynamite into Dead Metal. The House Robot sawed through Dynamite's shell and when he let go of them, they just sat there. Delldog, for some reason, had a go at Sir Killalot, but that was just foolish. They got out of there just as Refbot counted Dynamite out and Sir Killalot moved Dynamite to the floor flipper. Dynamite flew through the air and litteraly self-destructed when they hit the floor. The House Robots came in and sawed, burned and chucked Dynamite around the arena until junk started hanging off of them. All of Dynamite's armour sheered off as Sir Killalot chucked them out of the arena. So the unlikely winner was...Delldog! UK Fight 2: Corkscrew Vs Fluffy House Robots: Growler and Sgt. Bash Another quick fight with Fluffy smacking into Corkscrew a few times and eventually killing their engine. Growler pushed Corkscrew out of the CPZ, but the Corkscrew had popped. Refbot counted the Scottish robot out and Growler moved Corkscrew to the floof flipper. Corkscrew as flipped onto its side where we see what's actually "under the kilt". "No Pants!" Growler pitted Corkscrew and Fluffy moves on! German Fight 2: Das Gepack Vs Ansgar's Revenge House Robots: Sir Killalot and Dead Metal Das Gepack looked more of a German-type Tornado look-a-like rather than a robot driven by wizards. (YEAH RIGHT) Both robots were very quick across the arena floor, slamming into each other, but Das Gepack with their powerful engine slammed the 200 kilo walker into Dead Metal. Ansgar's lifter got impaled on Dead Metal, but they were able to seperate each other. Ansgar, however, had become imobile. However, they were pushed around by Das Gepack throughout the rest of the fight, rendering them mobile. Das Gepack had pressed the Pit Button and tried to push them in, but then Cease was called. Das Gepack obviously won. Semi-Final 1: Fluffy Vs 259 House Robots: Dead Metal and Mr. Psycho 259 chased Fluffy around for a bit and then hit them with their disc. Fluffy hit 259 a few times before 259 began to have problems. One of their drive chains fell out and pretty soon their wheels started to fall apart and the side skirts were bent out of shape. Then suddenly, WHAM! Fluffy hit 259 so hard with their spinning axe, that 259 was shot right onto its side! 259 didn't have a srimech, so they were counted out. Mr. Psycho then hammered 259 once, twice, then Dead Metal sawed through 259's body. One of the best looking robots in the 6th War was now a big pile of junk metal. Dead Metal pushed 259 into the Pit Button and pushed them into the Pit. Fluffy moves on to the UK/Germany Grand Final! Semi-Final 2: Delldog Vs Das Gepack House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Mr. Psycho Both robots colided and then Das Gepack shoved Delldog into Mr. Psycho. Delldog got out of there, but then Das Gepack pushed them into Sgt. Bash. Bash buried his claw into Delldog, actually lifting them up. Das Gepack pressed the Pit Button as Mr. Psycho knocked Delldog off of Bash's claw with the hammer, then hammering them for a few more times just for old times sake. Delldog was going back to "Dell". Refbot counted Delldog out and Das Gepack celebrated, doing one of the fastest spins ever seen in Robot Wars! Das Gepack then pitted Delldog. They're through to face Fluffy and represent Germany! UK/Germany Final: Fluffy Vs Das Gepack House Robots: Sgt. Bash and Mr. Psycho Both robots had great style and control. Fluffy hit Das Gepack with the spinning axe and one of the spikes broke. Das Gepack still had excellent pushing power. Fluffy hit Das Gepack a few more times and then drove over the flame pit. Das Gepack slammed into Fluffy and the UK robot's axe stopped spinning. Then they pressed the Pit Button and continued pushing Fluffy around. Britain was losing fast. Das Gepack pushed Fluffy into Sgt. Bash and the Sgt. shot his flamethrower at the German robot. Das Gepack got out of there and pushed Fluffy onto the flame mat as time ran out. This fight was actually pretty close. The judges had finally made their decision. It had been too close to call so there was only one option...they called it a draw! The audience booed. As Craig was interviewing the teams, he handed the UK/German Championship trophey to Das Gepack because they were a worthy team and probably should have won after all. However, he promised the Fluffy team that they would make another trophey that they would bring back home. So even though both teams lost, they still win?moreless
