For Series 8-10, new versions of Sir Killalot, Matilda, Shunt and Dead Metal were built with several improvements to keep them up-to-date with modern robot combat standards. Sergeant Bash, Growler, Mr, Psycho and Cassius Chrome were announced not to return for the rebooted series. In Series 9, a new feature was added where pressing the Arena Tyre could activate 'Rogue House Robot' mode, allowing the House Robots to leave their CPZs and attack competitor robots anywhere in the arena for ten seconds.

In addition to the main House Robots, two more were also seen, each with different roles to the standard ones. [[The Sentinel]] appeared exclusively in Series 2 as an obstacle in the Gauntlet stage, while [[Refbot]] was introduced in Series 4 to ensure fair play in the arena. The Sentinel was retired immediately following the end of Series 2, and Refbot was announced not to return for Series 8. Another two House Robots, [[Shove]] and [[Dozer]], were also used to push defeated competitors out of the arena at the end of battles, although they were never seen on television, with Dozer in particular being used to clean up Drop Zone debris.

Unlike the majority of contestant robots, the House Robots were often referred to by a gender. For most series, Matilda was referred to as "she", whilst the others were often called "he"; however, Dead Metal has also been referred to as a female House Robot in publications coinciding with the broadcast of [[Robot Wars: Series 10|Series 10]].
