The Featherweight Championship of Robot Wars: The Second Wars was one of the single-battle events held during the Grudge Matches special of Robot Wars: The Second Wars. The inaugural Featherweight Championship, the tournament was contested by just four robots, which were required to weigh 11.4kg or less, making them the lightest and smallest competitors to fight in the main Robot Wars Arena.

The Series 2 Featherweight Championship consisted of a single four-way melee, which, as with the other lower weight category events, was only partially shown as a short recap during the aforementioned Grudge Matches special.

Featherweight ChampionshipEdit

Anarchy vs Armadillo vs Demolisher vs The RipperEdit

Demolisher Armadillo 1

Demolisher lies upside down on top of Armadillo

Due to its high speed, Demolisher immediately proved the quickest and most active robot at the start. However, due to uncharged batteries, The Ripper was unable to move more than a few centimetres, before it stopped moving altogether. Demolisher came in to hit the immobilised The Ripper before it was attacked by Matilda. Anarchy then approached the momentarily stationary Demolisher, but before Anarchy could attack, Demolisher rammed into it at speed, immobilising Anarchy. Demolisher then chased after Armadillo, while Matilda proceeded to attack Anarchy.

Demolisher Armadillo 2

Demolisher rams Armadillo's side

In its over-exuberance, Demolisher ran straight up Armadillo's sloped side, turning itself over and lying on the latter's wedge. Sergeant Bash nudged the inverted Demolisher with his ramming blade, knocking it back onto its wheels. Demolisher sped away to prepare for another attack, and spent the remainder of the battle ramming into and shoving Armadillo around the arena. 'Cease' was eventually called, and the battle went to a judges' decision. The judges ruled in favour of Demolisher, making the former First Wars heat finalist the first official Robot Wars Featherweight Champion.
