- "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, please welcome the Master of Mechanical Mayhem, Nickelodeon's Dave Aizer!"
- — One of Stefan Frank's introductions for Dave Aizer
Dave Aizer is an American television host, producer and journalist who presented Nickelodeon Robot Wars for its one and only series.
Dave Aizer presented all six episodes of Nickelodeon Robot Wars, introducing segments of the show and interviewing teams after their battles. Dave Aizer's style of presenting was noticeably different to that of the other Robot Wars presenters, in an effort to appeal to a younger audience.
His personality revolved around being kind and considerate to both the winners and losers of a battle, and he would often ask the audience to cheer for both teams. Aizer would always talk to the young team members of a team rather than the adult competitors, reflecting the target audience for Nickelodeon Robot Wars.
