However, Plunderbird 5 broke down as it was been entered into the arena, so [[Major Tom]] was bought in as a substitute instead. In the fight itself, Comengetorix started off against Bigger Brother and was the first to land an attack, hitting Bigger Brother with its axe but without causing any damage. Despite Bigger Brother appearing to have problems with its flipper, venting a lot of CO<sub>2</sub>, Comengetorix was extremely sluggish and could not capitalise before Bigger Brother got under the front and flicked it up slightly, but not enough to overturn it. Comengetorix did not move until Bigger Brother rammed it, whereupon it reversed into the waiting Spawn Again.

Bigger Brother was nonetheless able to overturn Major Tom, but Comengetorix still landed an attack on Bigger Brother's flipper with its axe. In retaliation, Bigger Brother managed to push Comengetorix into the arena wall, but its flipper was no longer working. Spawn Again, its own flipper jammed open, was able to force Bigger Brother away, allowing Comengetorix to attack Major Tom, who had since become immobilised.

Comengetorix struck the stricken Major Tom with its axe, the blows causing two panels to break off, before dragging it away and lifting it slightly. After this, with Spawn Again also breaking down, Comengetorix was pursued across the arena by Bigger Brother, although neither appeared to be moving freely. Comengetorix was nudged towards the flame pit by Bigger Brother, but the fight was stopped after Sir Killalot pushed Major Tom into the pit.

In this battle, Hydra tossed over Comengetorix, but it self-righted. However, it had become noticeably more sluggish. Comengetorix tried to use its axe, but failed to hit anything. Hydra lifted Comengetorix up onto the arena side wall, pounding it with the hammer, and leaving it perched. Hydra's intention was to leave Comengetorix stranded, so Comengetorix needed to fire its weapons to free itself. After several repeated flips at thin air, Comengetorix's lifter snapped in half, leaving it with only the axe as its weapon, but also freeing Comengetorix to return to the battle.
