[[Limpet]] drove slowly to the edge of the triangle and moved in, taking out a few barrels. It reversed a couple of times, staying within the triangle to avoid being attacked by [[Sergeant Bash]]. However, its lack of speed meant it didn't have time to knock too many barrels over, and after pushing into the bottom left corner and only knocking a couple over, time ran out. Limpet finished with one barrel resting atop the robot.

[[File:Road Block pushes Killerhurtz.jpg|thumb|Roadblock gets underneath Killerhurtz]]
[[Killerhurtz]] charged straight out of the blocks and slammed into the front of [[Roadblock]], firing its axe upon impact, but missing the defending champions. Killerhurtz were left on Roadblock's wedge, and the Cornish robot simply pushed Killerhurtz across the arena and into the PPZ. Roadblock reversed and Killerhurtz slid off the wedge and stayed in the PPZ. Killerhurtz didn't move, so with [[Shunt]] waiting to attack, Roadblock turned around to utilise its cutting saw. Killerhurtz fired its axe, bending the top of Shunt's scoop. Roadblock gave up attacking with its saw and retreated.
+
Hoping to utilise its speed as an attacking advantage, Killerhurtz shot straight at Roadblock, putting a hole in the front scoop and bending their chassis, but doing little otherwise. The impact also broke the drive pins connecting Killerhurtz' gearbox to the rear wheels, leaving it immobilised. Roadblock used its scoop and wedge to get underneath Killerhurtz from the side and push into the PPZ, where it followed up by attacking it with its improved circular saw.

The immobile Killerhurtz was left stuck in the PPZ and was attacked by all four house robots, with Dead Metal dragging Killerhurtz back and dropping it in the pit.
+
With Killerhurtz no longer mobile, the House Robots moved in to attack it, Shunt taking a hit from the Killerhurtz axe resulting in a bent scoop, before Dead Metal eventually finished it off by grabbing hold of it with its pincers, before pushing it into the pit.

Before the battle, the [[Nemesis]] team mounted a kebab between Nemesis' wheel arches, hoping that it would be cooked when its fur caught fire. [[Onslaught]] was faster to start and weaved into the front of Nemesis, pushing it towards [[Sergeant Bash]], who flicked flame at the flammable robot. Nemesis reversed and was pushed by Onslaught, but not far. Onslaught drove away, went under the pendulum and into the PPZ, where [[Dead Metal]] pressured it slightly. Onslaught eventually escaped and pushed Nemesis again, reversing back and scooping under [[Shunt]]. Onslaught managed to get a decent run across the arena and hit the dawdling Nemesis, pushing it relentlessly into the pit.

Before the battle, the Nemesis team mounted a kebab between Nemesis' wheel arches, hoping that it would be cooked when its fur caught fire. Unfortunately, this was not to be - Onslaught's shovel and four-wheel drive made it simple for it to push the flat-edged, two wheel-driven Nemesis around the arena. During the fight, Onslaught was able to run rings around Nemesis with its speed, but briefly drove itself into the PPZ, from which it escaped. Towards the end, Nemesis seemed to have stopped moving next to the pit, allowing Onslaught to push the Irish machine into it.

[[Roadblock]] moved slowly forwards as [[Onslaught]] only seemed to turn its front wheels to steer, but didn't move otherwise. Roadblock drove under Onslaught, which was lifted by the floor spikes. Roadblock reversed into [[Sergeant Bash]] as Onslaught started smoking. Roadblock reversed in to cut with its saw and then left Onslaught to the House Robots, with [[Dead Metal]] and [[Shunt]] attacking.
+
Roadblock approached Onslaught but Onslaught failed to move at all after 'activate' was called. Roadblock pushed Onslaught onto an arena spike but there was still no movement from it. Onslaught started smoking and Dead Metal and Shunt attacked Onslaught while Roadblock took on Sergeant Bash.

Onslaught promptly caught fire and Roadblock decided to try and push Sergeant Bash, but [[Matilda]] retaliated, flipping Roadblock up with her tusks and propping Roadblock into the wall. Dead Metal open his pincers and destroyed Roadblock's rear saw as Cease was called.
+
Dead Metal snapped Roadblock's strimmer shaft with its claws in the dying seconds of the fight, but it didn't matter as Onslaught hadn't moved at all, meaning the defending Champion was through to the Semi-Finals.
