RC Warrior vs Beef-CakeEdit

"Size doesn't matter on Robot Wars. And to prove it, I'm here with RC Warrior and Beef-Cake. Welcome, teams... you nutters!"

Beef-Cake pushes RC Warrior into the CPZ

The two robots began with Beef-Cake shoving RC Warrior, before spinning away, and running away from RC Warrior. The two robots danced away from each other, occasionally colliding, before Beef-Cake pushed RC Warrior into the CPZ, but no House Robot intervened, and both robots escaped unharmed.

"This is ballet! This is Robot Wars ballet! Look at them, pirouetting and dancing and away, zippy nippy!"

Beef-Cake opens the pit...

...and RC Warrior descends

More dodging ensued, before RC Warrior broke down over the pit, and Beef-Cake rammed Shunt. Beef-Cake then pressed the pit release, and RC Warrior slowly descended into the pit, a tactic that Razer would later use against Raging Reality during the first heat of the Sixth Wars.

"Oh, err, no, no, this isn't fair! Don't take on Beef-Cake, now you've - aw, you've flipped him over - he's like a little beetle - YOU'VE CRUSHED HIM! Oh no, you've crushed him, Killalot! Oh that is so cruel! Now, I'm hardened to Robot Wars. I don't care if any of them get smashed up to be honest, but not this little tiddler!"

Beef-Cake is crushed by Sir Killalot

Beef-Cake then ran into Shunt again, and was punished for it by being turned over by Shunt, and then squashed by Sir Killalot. Shunt then attacked Beef-Cake with hisaxe, before Sir Killalot tried to pick it up with the claw, but Beef-Cake was too small, and slipped through Killalot's grasp. The destruction of Beef-Cake did not go down well with the audience, or Jonathan Pearce, and especially not with the team itself.

"I think that's a bit unfair... it's horrible. We were unable to protect ourselves and they just ran over us."
— Tommy Winkworth of Team Zap objects to the House Robots' attacks

Featherweight Champion: Beef-Cake

TriviaEdit

  • With only two competitors, this Featherweight Championship featured the fewest entries out of any championship in this weight category.
    • Notably, both competitors were considerably lighter than the maximum featherweight limit, weighing only 4kg each.
  • Beef-Cake took the Featherweight Championship title off of then-defending champion Demolisher, which was also well below the weight limit, and based on a radio-controlled car.
