The six robots quickly converged into the middle of the arena at the start of the battle, with The Brute quickly ramming into 6 Million Dollar Mouse. Red Virus pushed into Shuriken before colliding with Medusa Oblongata, which was enough to knock off part of its skull decoration. Meanwhile, Falcon had gotten itself wedged on top of Shuriken. Brute managed to push Falcon slightly off of its opponent, before 6 Million Dollar Mouse gave the two a harder push, seperating them. Red Virus continued its brawl with Medusa Oblongata and eventually used its forklift to knock off Medusa's head.

However, moments afterwards, Medusa backed away from an approaching Matilda, leaving Red Virus to take the full force of her flywheel. Brute then pushed Falcon into Matilda's CPZ. Falcon's mobility appeared to be minimal, so Shunt entered the CPZ, hit Falcon with his axe and pushed it further into the corner. This resulted in the house robot getting stuck on Falcon's wedge. Shunt attempted to axe Falcon again, but missed.

At that moment, Tricerabot rammed into Sobek, getting stuck on top, but this was enough to dislodge one of Sobek's tyres. Sobek managed to free itself, only to be slammed in the rear from Revolutionist, as Unibite slammed into Tricerabot. Unibite quickly drove back into the middle of the arena, trying to deploy its spin attack, whilst Bot-Ugly sat lifeless nearby. It then turned back onto Sobek, dislodging the tyre completely, before suddenly being slammed by a combined drive of Tricerabot and Revolutionist.

Refbot came in to split the two robots up, but Mad Cow's tyre had been punctured, rendering it immobile. Rippa Raptor had not moved since its tussle with Dead Metal, and the house robot came in again to attack it, his saw causing massive sparks as Manta, the barely-mobile Rosie and Tiger Cat, who was missing its entire left side panel, gave the odd occasional nudge. However, Rippa Raptor came back to life, which was enough for Refbot to issue Dead Metal with a yellow card. Rippa Raptor then tried to attack the immobilised Mad Cow along with Manta.

Revision as of 20:18, January 13, 2014

The US Championship of Extreme Warriors: Season 1 was the main competition of the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, as well as being the national championship. Despite being the main competition of the first season, the US Championship was actually the sixth episode out of seven to be shown, and was originally broadcast on September 24, 2001 on TNN.

Format

Main article: US Championship

Unlike most national championships, the US Championship was intended to be held during one show. To accomplish this, the robots were split into four six-way melees, with only one robot going through from each. There were then two semi-finals and a final to determine the first US Champion.

Competing Robots

Heats

Medusa Oblongata vs 6 Million Dollar Mouse vs Falcon vs Shuriken vs The Brute vs Red Virus

The six robots quickly converged into the middle of the arena at the start of the battle, with The Brute quickly ramming into 6 Million Dollar Mouse. Red Virus pushed into Shuriken before colliding with Medusa Oblongata, which was enough to knock off part of its skull decoration. Meanwhile, Falcon had gotten itself wedged on top of Shuriken. Brute managed to push Falcon slightly off of its opponent, before 6 Million Dollar Mouse gave the two a harder push, separating them. Red Virus continued its brawl with Medusa Oblongata and eventually used its forklift to knock off Medusa's head.

"Red Virus goes in with that forklift arm and decapitates Medusa!"
— Stefan Frank

However, moments afterwards, Medusa backed away from an approaching Matilda, leaving Red Virus to take the full force of her flywheel. Brute then pushed Falcon into Matilda's CPZ. Falcon's mobility appeared to be minimal, so Shunt entered the CPZ, hit Falcon with his axe and pushed it further into the corner. This resulted in the house robot getting stuck on Falcon's wedge. Shunt attempted to axe Falcon again, but missed.

"A swing and a miss! Steeee-rike!"
— Stefan Frank does baseball

Red Virus and Brute were ganging up on Medusa near the centre of the arena, before Red Virus pushed Medusa out of the way, as the Mouse then slammed into Medusa's side. Shunt managed to free himself from Falcon, and dragged it a little further away, but Falcon appeared to have lost drive on one side. Shuriken, meanwhile, had not moved since Falcon had attacked it, so Shunt placed it on the floor flipper. The resulting flip caused one of Shuriken's discs to dislodge.

"Sending his dead, lifeless body into the stratosphere!"
— Stefan Frank as Shuriken flies

Moments afterwards, Refbot counted down to the end of the battle, leaving only Brute, Red Virus, Medusa and the Mouse to go to a judges decision.

Winner: The Brute

Tricerabot vs The Revolutionist vs Coffin-Bot vs Bot-Ugly vs Unibite vs Sobek

The battle started with The Revolutionist driving away from the other robots to get its spinner up to speed. Tricerabot drove straight into Bot-Ugly's pincers whilst Unibite drove at Sobek's side. It then started spinning, managing to attack both Coffin-Bot and Sobek at the same time. Tricerabot pushed Revolutionist, who was not spinning, into Refbot. Unibite evaded an attack from Bot-Ugly before slamming into Sobek again before backing away.

"Bot-Ugly backs up, and Unibite backs up too! Everyone's in the reverse gear!"
— Stefan Frank

Bot-Ugly then attempted to grab Sobek as Revolutionist fled from Coffin-Bot and Tricerabot. It managed to gain some distance when Coffin-Bot, Bot-Ugly and Unibite collided and got stuck together.

At that moment, Tricerabot rammed into Sobek, getting stuck on top, but this was enough to dislodge one of Sobek's tyres. Sobek managed to free itself, only to be slammed in the rear from Revolutionist, as Unibite slammed into Tricerabot. Unibite quickly drove back into the middle of the arena, trying to deploy its spin attack, whilst Bot-Ugly sat lifeless nearby. It then turned back onto Sobek, dislodging the tyre completely, before suddenly being slammed by a combined drive of Tricerabot and Revolutionist.

"The Revolutionist doesn't seem to be spinning at all...and Unibite could be out of it! Oh, that would be an upset, they were so strong!"
— Stefan Frank as Unibite conks out

Moments later, Unibite broke down and was nudged towards the flame pit by Revolutionist, who then turned on Coffin-Bot, driving it into an empty CPZ. As Revolutionist and Tricerabot pushed against each other, Sergeant Bash grabbed hold of Coffin-Bot behind its disc with his pincers.

"Well, it's a good thing it's a coffin already, because we're getting ready for a real burial!"
— Stefan Frank as Coffin-Bot is attacked

Sgt Bash then turned his attention to Unibite, crushing through its armour, whilst Tricerabot and Revolutionist continued their brawl and Sobek, now missing another wheel as well as its tyre, desperately tried to stay in the battle. Revolutionist managed to push Tricerabot from the side as Sgt Bash appeared to have broken down. Just before the cease call, Coffin-Bot and Bot-Ugly managed to regain some mobility, but to no avail. The judges decided that The Revolutionist had done enough to progress.

Winner: The Revolutionist

Tiger Cat vs Close Enough vs Rippa Raptor vs Manta vs Rosie the Riveter vs Mad Cow

The battle began less cluttered than the previous two, with Mad Cow bumping into Rosie the Riveter, who seemed to have mobility problems immediately. Rippa Raptor, under no apparent pressure, drove straight into the arena wall. Manta took advantage and slammed Rippa Raptor into Dead Metal's CPZ, with Close Enough following behind. Manta then drove back to the arena centre and slammed into Rosie the Riveter, whilst Tiger Cat did the same to Mad Cow. The two robots then changed targets, with Tiger Cat pushing Rosie into the CPZ and Manta getting underneath Mad Cow. Tiger Cat then slammed into Mad Cow, but little more.

"He's going to be sliced beefsteak!"
— Stefan Frank on Mad Cow

Refbot came in to split the two robots up, but Mad Cow's tyre had been punctured, rendering it immobile. Rippa Raptor had not moved since its tussle with Dead Metal, and the house robot came in again to attack it, his saw causing massive sparks as Manta, the barely-mobile Rosie and Tiger Cat, who was missing its entire left side panel, gave the odd occasional nudge. However, Rippa Raptor came back to life, which was enough for Refbot to issue Dead Metal with a yellow card. Rippa Raptor then tried to attack the immobilised Mad Cow along with Manta.

Despite this, Rippa Raptor's mobility was still limited and Shunt began to investigate. Moments later, Refbot counted out Mad Cow, so Shunt turned his attention to the fallen machine.

"Someone's not working anymore...oh, it's the Mad Cow! The Mad Cow's a dead cow!"
— Stefan Frank

Shunt tried to push Mad Cow towards the floor flipper, but Rosie, who was only shuffling slowly back and forth, was already there, so the flipper fired, throwing Rosie on top of Dead Metal. Mad Cow was then placed on the flipper itself and it landed near the flame pit. It was pushed on the hazard moments later.

"I'd like mine medium-rare, please!"
— Stefan Frank as Mad Cow lands on the flames

As the last ten seconds counted down, only Manta and Tiger Cat were still moving, and the latter drove onto a flame jet to burn its fur. The judges chose Manta to go through.

"I'm going to be honest, this seems like an upset, like maybe you weren't the crowd favourite"
— Mick Foley, noting some of the audience reactions

Winner: Manta

General Chompsalot vs Run Away vs Spartacus vs Cyclone vs Panzer Mk 2 vs Drillzilla

Drillzilla got off to the fastest start, slamming Spartacus straight into the arena wall. Cyclone attacked Run Away knocking it up slightly, before Panzer Mk 2 slammed into the flywheel-wielding robot, stopping its disc and ramming it into the arena wall. One of Cyclone's wheels appeared to have been bent in this attack.

"Cyclone with that big wheel on the front - looks like the wheel of misfortune"
— Stefan Frank as Cyclone goes out early

Drillzilla continued in its attack on Spartacus as General Chompsalot also attacked Cyclone, clamping onto the disc with its jaws. Drillzilla then slammed Spartacus into the CPZ, the force being enough to knock Spartacus on its side. The shufflebot then turned its attention to Chompsalot, before the two turned on Run Away, dislodging its front wedge. Drillzilla then pushed Spartacus, who had been re-righted, along with Chompsalot to the other side of the arena, with Panzer quickly following in an attempt to keep up. Drillzilla then pushed Run Away into the CPZ and turned its attention back to Spartacus, leaving Run Away at the mercy of Sir Killalot.

"And Run Away just ran into the wrong person!"
— Stefan Frank

Run Away was able to escape and then managed to get its wedge underneath Panzer, with Chompsalot also aiding using its jaw. Drillzilla then pushed Run Away back towards the CPZ, but it was revealed that its drill had broken off during the attack.

Panzer then turned its attention to Spartacus, adjusting its aim before driving it into the arena wall, at the same time as Drillzilla rammed Chompsalot into Spartacus. The combined drive from the three machines nearly knocked Spartacus out of the arena.

"Look at that, right up on the rail! Right up on Chompsalot! I think General Chompsalot saved him, if anything"
— Stefan Frank reviews Spartacus' lucky break

Panzer then began pushing Chompsalot, before Drillzilla stole it away, ramming Chompsalot into the arena wall. Chompsalot was forced to drive on top of Drillzilla to get away, before it was rammed by Panzer again. During the attack, Panzer was lifted up slightly, which allowed Drillzilla to push underneath it. By now, only Panzer, Drillzilla and Chompsalot were still mobile, and the three pushed against each other until time ran out. Despite all of Drillzilla's aggression, the judges put Panzer Mk 2 through on a very close decision.

"I didn't even think we'd won, there were so many good robots still running at the end."
— Don Lariviere of Team Revelation

Winner: Panzer Mk 2

Manta and Panzer Mk 2 pushed each other, before Manta got underneath Panzer Mk 2, and pushed it again. Sergeant Bash tried to attack Manta, but Manta escaped. Manta got in under Panzer Mk 2 again, but then slowly started running low on power as Panzer continued to ram into it. Matilda was given a warning for an attack on Manta, who escaped and nearly flipped Panzer Mk 2, only for the Refbot to prevent this happening. Panzer Mk 2 won the judges' decision.

Winner: Panzer Mk 2
