Phoenix was a middleweight robot which competed in the Middleweight Championship of Series 7 of Robot Wars. It was eliminated early on in the battle after sustaining damage from defending Middleweight champion, Typhoon.
Phoenix was a box wedge-shaped robot, driven by two wheels positioned on the side of the robot. Phoenix used checker plate metal armour, and its weapon was a red lifting arm. At 42kg, Phoenix was under the weight limit for Middleweight machines by 12kg. Phoenix's weapon was potentially useful, although the robot had a high ground clearance with its weapon not perfectly aligned with the floor, and its exposed wheels provided a weakness.
Phoenix competed in the Middleweight Championship, broadcast as the Special Event of Heat K. There, it faced the reigning Middleweight champion Typhoon and the Team Terror Turtle representative, Steel Sandwich.
At the start, Phoenix hesitated to get involved in the action, until it charged straight into a CPZ while attempting to ram Typhoon. It left the CPZ once Growler approached, and briefly pursued Typhoon as the latter's weapon stopped spinning. Phoenix spun uncontrollably as it and Steel Sandwich chased Typhoon across the arena; the three competitors continued driving around, towards and away from each other for some time as Refbot pressed the pit release button. In the process, Phoenix spun close to a flame jet, before Typhoon hit its side and sent it spinning into Growler. The attack immobilised Phoenix instantly, leaving it unable to escape as Growler opened its jaws in preparation for an attack.

Refbot counted Phoenix out, before Growler pushed it into the Floor Flipper. It was thrown across the arena and into a CPZ, narrowly staying inside the arena. Ultimately, Phoenix lost the Middleweight Championship battle to Typhoon.
