"Now with Sergeant Bash around, you'd be pretty stupid to cover your robot in fur. Either that, or be an arsonist with a lust for pyrotechnical destruction. Our next contenders don't look stupid, so make your own minds up, as we fire up the robots and get stuck in!"
Craig Charles introduces the Inferno Insurrection

The Inferno Insurrection was a one-off battle shown during the Grudge Matches episode of Robot Wars: The Second Wars. It was an exhibition battle held purely to entertain the audience, consisting of the fur-clad Nemesis and the sacrificial stock robot Ramrombit being set alight by the House Robot, Sergeant Bash. Before the start, Nemesis and Ramrombit were both dosed in paraffin to make them easier to catch fire.

Sergeant Bash vs Nemesis & RamrombitEdit

Inferno insurrection

Sergeant Bash torches Ramrombit and Nemesis

This match featured Sergeant Bash and two flammable robots which were sprayed with paraffin before the event. The robots were Nemesis and Ramrombit, a sacrificial robot designed for this match and driven by George Francis.

Nemesis, garbed in a chef's hat and sporting kebabs, started the battle by darting behind Sergeant Bash, and was in fact the second robot to be caught, with Ramrombit the first to be set on fire, soon followed by Nemesis, who lost the chef's hat after a sharp turn. After a while, a small explosion came from Nemesis, probably from an area particularly well doused in paraffin.

Ramrombit spews smoke

Both robots felt the need to go in on the attack, pushing against Sergeant Bash, whilst Ramrombit sparked. Ramrombit, bits of its cape lining the arena, started spewing red smoke towards the end. As this was an exhibition fight, no winner was announced.
