Hypno-disc in the arena

Hypno-Disc is a robot that competed from Series 3-6 of Robot Wars plus both series of Extreme. It was hugely successful, coming second in its first series, and only once failing to reach the Grand Final afterwards. Hypno-Disc previously appeared in Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction, Robot Wars: Advanced Destruction, and also featured in the PC and Xbox version of Robot Wars: Extreme Destruction. It is unlocked when the player beats the silver level of Melting Pot in Bash 'N' Dash mode.

Appearance and ArmamentEdit

Hypno-Disc greatly resembles its real life counterpart; a box shaped robot armed with a horizontal flywheel; but the back is rather taller and thinner than in real life. The in-game model appears to have been based on the Series 5 version of the machine rather than its later appearances.


Using Hypno-DiscEdit

As with any game, the using the disc is the best tactic. It does damage opponents with low armour easily, but takes time on those with strong armour. Hypno-Disc does have decent pushing power in the game, so can manoeuvre opponents towards hazards.

Against Hypno-DiscEdit

If your robot has weak armour, stay away from the weapon. Flipping Hypno-Disc is one tactic, as long as you flip from the back rather than from under the disc. Hypno-Disc has one of the more weaker armours in the game, so saws or axes can break Hypno-Disc quickly.

Differences from Real LifeEdit

  • Much like the Series 3 and 5 versions, the spikes on top of the robot are absent.
  • The srimech bar is not visible, although Hypno-Disc is able to self right in the game.
  • Hypno-Disc self rights by somersaulting into the air over its front in a similar fashion to robots such as Cassius and Firestorm, rather than the side bar simply pushing it back onto its wheels.
  • Hypno-Disc's rear chassis is somewhat taller and thinner.
