"Robot Wars has launched into cyberspace. Roboteers invading the internet, beating up computer viruses. The thing is, four veterans from Robot Wars all think their website is best. There's only one way we sort an argument like that out on Robot Wars – by letting them kick the hell out of each other! Let's get stuck in."
Craig Charles

The Internet Insurrection was a one-off battle shown during the Grudge Matches episode of Robot Wars: The Second Wars. The battle was a four-way melee between four teams who claimed to have the best website at the time.

Corporal Punishment made the first early charge on Griffon, pushing it towards the PPZ. Meanwhile, Killerhurtz attacked Matilda, breaking the chain on her chainsaw, but was then pressured by Sergeant Bash as it lay statuesque in the PPZ, but Griffon came to its rescue, getting in underneath the Sergeant and then overturning the House Robot, much to the delight of all of the teams. Meanwhile, Corporal Punishment rammed Matilda, while Killerhurtz was dragged away by Shunt and overturned, and Bodyhammer beached Matilda on its steep wedge, but was freed by Dead Metal.

Shunt continued with the punishment of Killerhurtz, re-righting it, but leaving the immobile machine on the flame pit. Griffon then attacked Shunt, but failed to lift it, while Bodyhammer was under attack from Dead Metal, who grabbed it, but let it escape, and came back for another ram on the House Robot. Meanwhile, Corporal Punishment had become immobilised, as it was trapped under Sergeant Bash. Griffon then tried to overturn Dead Metal, but the House Robot trapped it on a spike, forcing Griffon to retreat. Matilda then lifted Griffon up, and fired her spark shooter. As cease was called, Matilda pushed Griffon into Bodyhammer, who had wedged itself underneath Dead Metal, immobilising both robots.

"All I wanted to do this time is take over a house robot. Sorry blokes!"
— Oliver Steeples to the House Robots

Winner: Griffon

TriviaEdit

  • This battle was the first occasion where all of the competing robots ignored each other and only attacked the House Robots.
  • During the battle, Griffon became the first competitor to turn Sergeant Bash over with a lifting or flipping weapon of any kind.
