"Robot Wars: The Ultimate Warrior Collection is the definitive guide to the greatest, most destructive robots in the history of Robot Wars."
— Back covers

Robot Wars: Ultimate Warrior Collection was a collection of videos that were released on VHS and DVD (a first for Robot Wars). Three of these were dedicated to some of Robot Wars' greatest competitors; Chaos 2, Hypno-Disc and Razer (coincidentally, the three top seeds for Series 4). The fourth being dedicated to the House Robots. Featured were interviews with the roboteers, a detailed look at how the machines worked and operated and an almost complete set of battles that the teams fought in their time on Robot Wars up to the end of The Fifth Wars. The teams discuss their hopes and plans for The Sixth Wars at the end of each video.

The videos could be bought either individually or as a complete 4-volume set. The DVD releases took advantage of the extra capabilities of the format. All 4 of the DVD volumes included a Cut Your Own Battle feature, each featuring raw footage from a battle lacking commentary or music. Using a DVD remote at certain points the viewer could switch to a different camera angle from which to view the battle. The other common feature was Terminology which was a glossary of terms relating to Robot Wars and robot combat in general.

The set was also later repackaged on DVD as The Stars Collection. Other than now featuring the 4 DVDs in a single standard DVD case and different cover art the contents were identical.

In 2003-2004 the videos were also released in the Scandinavian region (Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) by Pan Vision. Other than different cover art the only other change is the addition of Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish subtitles. It should be noted that all the Pan Vision videos were all released under the Ultimate Warrior Collection label. Apart from the individual releases there was also a 3-volume set released on November 12, 2003 that included the Chaos 2, Sir Killalot and the House Robots and The First Great Wars (never released on DVD in the UK) DVDs.
