Welcome back to Robot Wars: The Sixth Wars. This series, we have witnessed some cracking three-way melees, thanks to the Mayhems and Losers' melees. We have also seen some epic four-way melees. Clearly then, to make things even more exciting, how about we put SIX robots in the arena at once? Indeed, the Annihilator is about to begin, featuring the six robots that won their respective Mayhems. They will all enter the arena, before one is eliminated in each round, until we have the last robot standing. So, LET THE WARS BEGIN!

Votes for Ming 3
  1. I'll be awkward and vote Ming 3. It's not the most reliable and those wheels... If S3 hits the side of Ming then there's trouble BIG TROUBLE. Mr Nasty can practically ram Ming to death, Diminator to...dominate when it DOES hit something, Anarchy can flip and axe Ming 3. The only robot I don't really know could cause damage to Ming is Tiberius but I still think Ming is the clear weakest robot here in my eyes as it doesn't have much offensive or defensive.

    So Dominator to dominate the battle with every attack then, not bad :) Jimlaad43(talk) 12:27, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
    Sure...after missing 9/10 times :P Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 12:46, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
    you misspelled hitting. Jimlaad43(talk) 13:12, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
    *Missing. Before we go any further let's just agree to disagree bud :P Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 16:47, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
    Disagreeing over opinion is fine. I can say "The Big Cheese is a bad robot" and you can say "The Big Cheese is a good robot" and be perfectly entitled to disagree with that. But what this discussion is about is provable fact. By saying Dominator 2 misses every hit is similar to saying Tornado isn't red. Watch back some of Dominator's fights and count how many attacks hit and how many missed, then tell me it's inaccurate when you don't have the numbers to back it up. Is a 2-second KO from an inaccurate robot possible? Not really. It was a lucky hit yes, but still accurate and controlled by the team. Jimlaad43(talk) 13:31, February 1, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Y'see, Mr Nasty being unreliable and weak is my exact reason why I'm NOT voting for it, since in the Annihilators often the strongest are targeted. Now while I don't think Ming is anywhere near the strongest, I do think that everyone else can destroy Ming by either axing/ripping the wheels off or by crushing with the better claw. CaliforniaKingsnake (talk) 14:46, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Ming 3 is the most vulnerable of this lot; those wheels will be an easy target for S3, and once those are gone, it will be a literal sitting duck for the others. Hogwild94 (talk) 22:12, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
  4. I agree here that Ming is the most likely to fall first of these 6. Mr. Nasty I feel can at the very least ram some of the other robots and the wheels on Ming feel the most vulnerable/susceptible to damage other than MAYBE S3 who even then has a stronger weapon to fight the other bots off. BizarroKing (talk) 00:03, February 1, 2018 (UTC)
  5. Ming 3 is doomed as its length will make it a easy target for S3. Sam (BAZINGA) 01:26, February 1, 2018 (UTC)

  1. I have been looking forward to this Annihilator, because just look at the competitors that qualified, especially Anarchy, Dominator 2 and S3! Indeed, I think all three shall survive this first round, on the basis that that their generally good reliability, as well as tough armour, should see them go through without too many issues. Tiberius 3, however, is my dark horse for the tournament, for reasons I will explain later. Annoyingly, I have to eliminate who might be the weakest robot in this Annihilator, Mr Nasty. Sure, whilst Ming 3's exposed wheels are heat magnets for S3's disc, Mr Nasty to me is vulnerable to everyone. Its ground clearance and boxy shape make it easy for the crushers to grab hold of, whilst also enabling Anarchy to use its flipper to great effect. Meanwhile, the flat top looks easy pickings for the axes of Anarchy and Dominator 2. I also highly doubt Mr Nasty can withstand that amount of punishment from S3's disc, so to me, unless Ming 3 suffers an early breakdown, Mr Nasty shall be the first to fall. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 08:50, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Yeah, this is pretty much a case of Mr Nasty being unable to offer any sort of threat to any opponents. It's the least reliable, has the weakest weapon and is a great shape to flip or axe, not to mention its exposed wheels to four overhead weapons. Raz3r(talk) 08:57, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Machines that progress in Annihilator's don't do it just by avoiding the action, typically. Spikasaurus was largely left alone because it was so often engaged with Suicidal Tendencies, while Major Tom was actually rendered immobile during by Round 1 and 2. In this field of machines that are going to last a decent amount of time, I just can't see Mr Nasty offering anything to edge through. Nweston8 (talk) 19:24, January 31, 2018 (UTC)
  4. Was on the bench here, but really, the case for any robot making or not making it through is one of reliability more than anything else, where even the slightest glance could cause trouble. For all Ming's trouble, it was still able to show mobility on a busted wheel. Mr Nasty managed to just die on two separate occasions from relatively small attacks - one where it had its aerial just pinched off, the other where it lost drive after being flipped a few times. I can't imagine it not receiving at least a few blows along the way. Although to be honest, I know who I feel will be the most at risk over all, and it isn't Ming or Nasty.

  1. This battle will be an unholy mess of awesomeness, but it'll end when Tiberius falls over, whether flipped by Anarchy, S3's disc or Dominator's wedge. Mr Nasty is either going to be a damage soak, or be left alone like Spikasaurus was. Jimlaad43(talk) 09:02, January 31, 2018 (UTC)

Votes for Mr Nasty
  1. Since Mr Nasty is still here, I have yet to pull the trigger. Indeed, with Ming 3 out of the way, Mr Nasty to me is more likely to be knocked out first, especially considering the level of competition and deadly weapons here. So, the trigger has not been pulled... for the moment. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 16:26, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
  2. S3 won't be flipping over Tiberius 3, the real danger for the crusher is Anarchy. If Tiberius 3 avoids the walker, I simply can't see who could immobilise it other than via the pit. Mr Nasty is still the following: unreliable, has the weakest weapon, is the slowest non-walker, and the lightest. Those are the factual points. Here are the opinionated points: I think it's the most likely to be pushed around, the easiest to flip and won't cause enough damage or show enough aggression to do well. It's also the most exposed to the three overhead weapons with its flat top and exposed wheelsIt'll still be struggling after the previous round as well, since it probably took a fair amount of damage, and all of the other machines have their own strengths that they can use to exploit the others. What Mr Nasty has is invertibility. That is all. The spike can't damage any of Anarchy, Tiberius 3 or Dominator 2 because their armour is all too strong, and it'll be punctured by the two axes or the crusher in reply. If it goes for S3, who has the weakest armour of the other 4, Mr Nasty is going to be hit by the massive flywheel and die quickly. Tiberius 3 only has to avoid one robot, the slowest one at that. Mr Nasty has to avoid all of them. Raz3r(talk) 17:59, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
  3. I have to agree entirely with RAZ3R. CrashBash (talk) 18:15, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
  4. Well with Ming gone, mow seems like a good time to vote out Mr. Nasty sadly; I almost want to side with the argument on Tiberius getting eliminated but Mr. Nasty feels more vulnerable here since it has to deal with two big powerful axe bots as well as the crusher itself. BizarroKing (talk) 22:14, February 2, 2018 (UTC)
  5. Mr Nasty clearly the weakest left, S3 will turn its attentions on it, in fact, it may well still be limping after the first round, so it will be even easier to deal with. Hogwild94 (talk) 20:10, February 3, 2018 (UTC)
  6. Mr. Nasty could potentially be a Spikasaurus, but not likely. Tiberius know they are vulnerable so will probably try to kill Mr. Nasty before it is flipped by Anarchy or S3. I could see Mr. Nasty/Tiberius going down in a death pact like Androne/Concussion, which means Mr. Nasty is likely to be the lower scoring of the two. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:23, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  7. Mr. Nasty is ultimately the easier machine to attack and the machine with the least-damaging weapon. Other robots are going to want to avoid taking damage, and going after Mr. Nasty is a good way towards that goal. Nweston8 (talk) 03:29, February 4, 2018 (UTC)

  1. The only issue with Annihilator voting is that if you write an argument for a robot to go out, but it doesn't go out, then in the next round you're pretty much stuck with the same vote until the robot that can cause the problem disappears. Tiberius is still vulnerable to being toppled over, and Ming wasn't the robot to do it anyway. I have no reason to change my vote from the last round. Jimlaad43(talk) 16:29, February 2, 2018 (UTC)

  3. I totally agree with JimLaad's statement (even though I got my own way :P) So yeah I don't really know what Tiberius can do here. Mr Nasty in my eyes is being underrated and honestly I's say the third best machine here.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 17:25, February 2, 2018 (UTC)

Votes for Anarchy
  1. I suppose the obviously choice to eliminate would be Tiberius 3, but I don't think that'll be the case. You remember when I said back in Round 1 that the robot most at risk through the annihilator wasn't Ming or Mr Nasty? Well, surprise...the robot is actually Anarchy. Yes, it has effective weapons, but it's just so slow. Fast for a walker doesn't mean fast in general. S3 and Dominator 2 are clearly the other favourites, and between Anarchy and Tiberius, whilst Tiberius is objectively weaker, Anarchy is easier to pick on. Even with its weapons, I just don't think it'll be able to fend off attacks all that easily from the other two big guns without taking too much damage, and I don't think its weapons will be too effective. All Tiberius needs to do is hang back, dodge the attacks and engage in an attack of its own from time to time. CrashBash (talk) 11:49, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Completely agree with Crash, here. Four machines left means that the arena is starting to empty, and there are less cannon-fodder targets. When there’s five or six robots in the arena, there tends to be two or three ‘mini fights’, but when it gets down to four machines, it’s either two separate fights or the potential of going after the most obvious target. In this case, it’s the potent but static Anarchy that’ll be picked off. Its lack of mobility will make it stand out as a target, and the threat of its weaponry is something that I’m sure the others will want to get rid of. Nweston8 (talk) 12:35, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  3. As much as my statement in the last round is true, I think the situation has now changed. Tiberius has now survived two battles where it could be flipped, so we can assume really that it won't happen. Therefore, what do we have left? We have a well armoured crusher, a well armoured axe, a well controlled and powerful spinner and a slow walker with weak sides. S3 should now have a clean run into the side of Anarchy, and Anarchy being immobilised after it has lost some legs is the most likely elimination. Jimlaad43(talk) 14:45, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
Tiberius 3

Votes for Tiberius 3
  1. With Mr Nasty out, I think the end is nigh for Tiberius 3. I'm tempted to join Crash in voting out Anarchy, but I just can't see Tiberius hanging back from the action. Instead, I can see Tiberius 3 trying to target S3 to get revenge for its defeat in the heat final earlier in the audited series. Looking back, I think I was wrong to vote for Tiberius 3 over S3, and S3 will take control of their tussle. Meanwhile, I think Dominator 2 is lower at the front than Anarchy, so it'll have the advantage in a head-on axe attack. Dominator 2's armour is also tougher than Anarchy's, and it has a better shape to deal with the attacks. Anarchy's lack of speed also means its sides will be highly exposed to any sort of charge from S3 or Tiberius 3; it simply won't escape in time. Once again, what Tiberius 3 needs to do is avoid the flipper of Anarchy - engaging with S3 means it'll survive, but take damage. As you can probably tell from my vote, I'm very back and forth between Anarchy and Tiberius 3, but I suspect that no one will break down or be immobilised, with Anarchy instead edging out Tiberius 3 on the basis of aggression and damage. Raz3r(talk) 12:15, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  2. As stated by JimLaad once you vote for one robot, it's hard to vote for another.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 12:40, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
    C'mon, please stop capitalising the L in my name. Jimlaad43(talk) 14:46, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Even if JIMlAAD has left his theory behind, I still follow his line of thinking. Anarchy and Dominator are too tall for Tiberius to crush to it has to target S3, which will either backfire, or Anarchy will flip it. TOAST 16:55, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  4. Tiberius will be flipped by Anarchy this time, outweighing any damage S3 may cause to either opponent. Hogwild94 (talk) 20:21, February 4, 2018 (UTC)
  5. Ok so yea NOW is where Tiberius falls. BizarroKing (talk) 00:18, February 5, 2018 (UTC)
  6. Time for the Emperor to fall after S3 rips into it, Dominator 2 axes it and Anarchy both flips and axes it. Sam (BAZINGA) 18:51, February 5, 2018 (UTC)
S3
S3 Profile.png
Votes for S3
  1. OK, for me it is time to pull the trigger and eliminate S3! There are a number of reasons for me voting S3 out at this stage: the first involves the fact that S3 is likely to be the biggest threat to the other three, especially considering the massive amounts of damage it could cause to Dominator 2 and Tiberius 3 in particular. Henceforth, I think they will start to gang up on the spinner if they have not already. The second reason I am voting to eliminate S3 involves the idea of Tiberius 3 grabbing and trapping the axlebot (which I predicted would happen in a one-on-one situation), enabling the rather accurate axes of Anarchy and Dominator 2 to hit the top of the spinner. This leads me to my third and final reason for eliminating the spinner at this stage: overhead weapons are S3's main weakness. If one re-watches S3's Series 6 melee, when it was hit by Mr. Psycho's hammer, it was in a TERRIBLE state at the end, requiring repairs or replacements to be made to the gearbox shaft, batteries and wheels. Sure, Anarchy and Dominator 2 may have axes that are not as capable of causing as much internal damage, but with the help of Tiberius 3 trapping the spinner, as well as the fact that an Annihilator usually causes robots to accumulate internal damage anyway, S3 is going to be knocked out. I predict Tiberius 3 will gain the most votes here, but I feel S3 likely will not be able to dodge another bullet come next round. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 11:44, February 4, 2018 (UTC)

  1. Anarchy's excuses are running low now, and its low speed will mean S3 and Dominator 2 will very easily gang up on it and kill the walker. Jimlaad43(talk) 08:01, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Everything I said about Anarchy in the previous round still stands. CrashBash (talk) 08:31, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Anarchy is next, S3 and Dominator 2 are just too good to be decimated and eliminated from the annihilator now, sure they'll be wary but active enough to get rid of the walker.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 08:33, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
  4. I would like to point out that not only is Psycho's hammer significantly heavier than Dominator 2 or Anarchy's axe, but the area it hits is much much bigger, so it's more likely to smash into the vital parts. Anarchy is going to be outpaced by both opponents, and it is no longer facing a robot that can be finished off by the flipper barring a very unlikely OotA. Anarchy is vulnerable to a hit from the side against S3, and while it may survive, it's going to lose badly on all forms of criteria. Raz3r(talk) 16:52, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

  1. Even with Tiberius 3 being eliminated, S3 is still the robot I think will be taken out in this round. As I argued previously, S3's Achilles' heel are overhead weapons, as noted in its Series 6 melee, where it was seriously damaged by Mr. Psycho. Although Anarchy and Dominator 2 may not have axes that are as powerful as the House Robot's hammer, I still think the fact there are two decent axes rather than one, plus the accumlated damage experienced in Annihilator, will cause S3 to suffer terminal damage to the gearbox shaft, batteries and wheels.

Votes for Dominator 2
  1. Umm... yeah. I have this strange feeling that S3 is going to win this, in spite of me voting it out three times in a row, ha ha. But, no matter, I do not really care who wins this, as I vote for Dominator 2 to finally win an Annihilator. This is not only on the basis that Dominator 2's axe is rather damage, and can generally hit the weakpoints of S3 as I previously mentioned, but it will probably be able to attach itself to its opponent. That will enable it to simply move S3 towards the House Robots, which could spell doom for the spinner... especially if Mr. Psycho is there! So in conclusion, Dominator 2 to win on the basis I feel that S3's weaknesses will finally cost in when attempting to endure an entire Annihilator, plus the idea that the axe will be able to control its movements. SpaceManiac888 (Talk) 16:08, February 8, 2018 (UTC)
  2. Dominator was always going to win this. Dominator's main strength really, is durability, and it just happens to have a good drive and weapon to utilise it. S3 would lose this fight anyway as it will be pushed around massively, but it will have taken more damage in previous fights - and that is relevant in Annihilators. Jimlaad43(talk) 16:13, February 8, 2018 (UTC)
  3. Tough call. S3 can cause damage to the side but that's about it, every where else it won't get a hit, Dominater will struggle t aim a perfect hit but control will be its prevail so Dominator to win...unless it conks out again :PDiotoir the son of nemesis (talk)
  4. Dominator 2 will probably suffocate S3. S3 naturally finds it hard to control the pace of a fight as it is, and against a long, sleek shape link Dominator 2 it'll prove even harder. I don't actually think Dominator 2 will land many axe blows in this either. It'll be in too close to S3 to be accurate, but that won't stop it controlling the flow of the fight. With S3 unlikely to KO Dominator 2, Peter Halloway and co should have this one after a controlled display. Nweston8 (talk) 16:50, February 8, 2018 (UTC)
  5. One thing I've been noticing through watching some of Dominator 2's fights again, in particular its battles with S.M.I.D.S.Y. and Hydra (thanks Nweston), it generally tried to attack its opponents from the side. In those fights in particular, the opponent was generally able to keep its distance for the most part by also sticking to the side, but S3's awkward design means it literally can't do this. I've built little Lego robots with similar shapes to S3 before, and I've always found that if a robot can get to the wheel "hub", it can control the battle. Dominator will do the same and probably take the win on the judges. CrashBash (talk) 17:31, February 8, 2018 (UTC)
  6. Dominator could simply push S3 to win or pit it. Sam (BAZINGA) 01:05, February 9, 2018 (UTC)
  7. I was moving back and forth on this one, but the votes this side have convinced me. S3's flywheel isn't as heavy or as powerful as Matilda's, and Dominator 2 is too well controlled for S3 to be able to outmaneuver it. Even if Dominator 2 misses its hits, it will be a more effective pusher, and when it does hit S3, the damage will start to show over time. Raz3r(talk) 08:57, February 9, 2018 (UTC)
