For the unrelated Series 7 heavyweight competitor, see Ripper.

Ripper's Revenge was a middleweight robot which fought in the Middleweight Melee, filmed and broadcast as part of Series 3 of Robot Wars. In its only televised appearance, it lost the Melee after getting flipped over by an arena spike and damaged by Shunt. Ripper's Revenge originally entered the Middleweight Championship for Series 3, but the championship was cancelled and replaced with the Middleweight Melee following a behind-the-scenes accident in The Pits.

The robot was the successor to The Yorkshire Rippers' Series 2 featherweight entry, Ripper.


Ripper's Revenge was a green, box-shaped robot with two-wheel drive and a small pickaxe at the front. The robot was decorated with an 'L' plate sticker, a design detail carried over from the original Ripper.

Robot HistoryEdit

Series 3Edit


Ripper's Revenge being axed by Shunt

Ripper's Revenge competed exclusively in the Middleweight Melee, alongside Tentoumushi, defending Middleweight Champion Hard Cheese, Grinder and A-Kill. It began by driving towards Hard Cheese, but struggled to attack it effectively as the latter hit it with its hammer. Tentoumushi then came in to push both Hard Cheese and Ripper's Revenge, with Ripper's Revenge driving forwards before twice being nudged sideways by Tentoumushi. Ripper's Revenge turned round to touch Tentoumushi's sandpit lid with its axe, but without causing any damage, before backing and spinning away. It eventually drove under Tentoumushi's lid and pursued the American entry across the arena, before driving slowly away. Ripper's Revenge touched Tentoumushi's chassis once more, only to get pinned between the latter and Matilda as the House Robot cut one of Tentoumushi's decorative antenna off. The two competitors separated, before Ripper's Revenge was pushed back into an arena spike by A-Kill.

As this happened, Sir Killalot pushed A-Kill and an immobilised Grinder away, in turn pushing Ripper's Revenge back onto the spike. Ripper's Revenge attempted to drive off the spike as it was being jostled, but the force of the spike's thrusts eventually flipped it over onto its back. Shunt axed through its baseplate seconds later, before pushing Ripper's Revenge back over the arena spike to cause more damage. More thrusts from the spike shook Ripper's Revenge's bodyshell loose, with Shunt dragging and pushing it back and forth as his own axe mechanism had also been damaged.

"Ripper's Revenge being tortured... by Shunt... hauled around the place. 'L' plates? No wonder; when you can learn control, come back and play with the big boys... say the House Robots to Ripper's Revenge!"
Jonathan Pearce as Ripper's Revenge sustains damage from Shunt and the arena spike

Ripper's Revenge sat inverted and immobile before being pushed away by Shunt and briefly nudged by Tentoumushi. As a result, it was eliminated from the Middleweight Melee, which was ultimately won by the latter and A-Kill.
