"It's not the most dangerous, but Craig, it looks hardy to me"
— Jonathan Pearce

Demolition Demon was the name given to two heavyweight robots which appeared in Series 2-3 of Robot Wars. The original robot successfully entered Series 2, where it reached the Heat Final, but lost to Napalm on a controversial Judges' decision. In Series 3, the team entered its successor, Demolition Demon 2, into the Robotic Soccer side competition; however, it quickly lost its qualifier to Velocirippa.

Demolition Demon 2 was a box-shaped robot, armed with a spike. Its colour sceheme used black, yellow and red stripes, resembling the Belgian flag, although the robot brandished several Union Jacks. It was built to be internally stronger than the previous version, and was over 12kg heavier, but had a high ground clearance.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 2Edit

Demolition demon gauntlet

Demolition Demon completes the Gauntlet

Demolition Demon managed to outmanoeuvre all of the house robots in the Gauntlet (including Sir Killalot) and finished the Gauntlet, easily making it through to the Trial stage, after placing first, completing the Gauntlet in the quickest time in the Heat.


The House Robots unfairly attack Demolition Demon

Demolition Demon continued its streak of placing first, winning the Skittles event by a clear margin, knocking down twenty barrels. Despite this success, the House Robots used Demolition Demon as a target to demonstrate their power, and Sir Killalot picked it up, holding it in place for Matilda to put a large scratch on Demolition Demon, using her chainsaw.

Demolition demon victor

Demolition Demon pushes Victor into the PPZ

In the heat semi-final with Victor, it was able to push Victor around with ease. Demolition Demon pushed Victor into the PPZ, despite it escaping before the House Robots could come in. Just as Victor was moved into the middle of the arena, it broke down. Demolition Demon was given the win despite then getting flipped by Shunt.

It then fought Napalm in the Heat Final. Napalm was able to push Demolition Demon around before driving into the PPZ itself, Demolition Demon was able to nudge Napalm's side a few times before eventually nearly toppling Napalm with its wedge shape, however cease was then called. The judges' decision went in favour of Napalm, which was not a popular outcome.

Series 3Edit

The re-designed Demolition Demon only competed in the Robotic Soccer competition. Its opponent Velocirippa capitalised on a defensive error by Matilda to dribble the ball halfway across the arena and score past goalkeeper Dead Metal, eliminating Demolition Demon 2 from the competition.
