The Middleweight Championship of Robot Wars Extreme: Series 1 was a single-battle event from Episode 2 of Robot Wars Extreme: Series 1. The championship consisted of a single battle featuring six robots weighing no more than 54kg.
Typhoon vs Zap vs Doom vs Hard Cheese vs Genesis vs MammothEdit
The battle begun with Genesis, Doom and Zap pushing against each other, with Typhoon slowly moving towards them, its spinning shell quickly up to speed. It hit Zap and Genesis very quickly, knocking them away.
"And Typhoon looks the most effective of all of these immediately"
— Jonathan Pearce
After just a few more hits, Zap was flung into the arena wall and rendered immobilised. Typhoon also managed to annihilate the bottom of Mammoth, therefore it couldn't move properly anymore. Doom quickly came in and began to push the wounded Mammoth, whilst Typhoon then dealt blows to Hard Cheese and Genesis, effectively immobilising both machines, with Genesis being knocked onto the floor flipper.
"This is only a middleweight contest, but I think if you threw Typhoon in with some heavyweights, they'd have a real chance. Mammoth's chances...well, I'm not too sure. To be honest, I think my lawnmower could do better!"
— Jonathan Pearce on Typhoon and Mammoth.
Hard Cheese was still spinning around in circles, but couldn't move freely across the arena floor. Doom was immobilised next, around the time that Genesis was counted out by the Refbot and thrown by the arena floor flipper. The two next to go on the floor flipper were Mammoth and Zap. The final two to be put on the floor flipper were Hard Cheese and Doom, as Hard Cheese finally ground to a firm halt. After being flipped by the floor flipper, Doom landed on Matilda's flywheel, causing horrific damage. Typhoon won as the last robot left mobile.
"What a Mammoth fight! Hard Cheese to Doom, Genesis and Zap!"
— Craig Charles, using all the beaten robot names
Typhoon had single-handedly defeated all of its opponents, becoming the Robot Wars Extreme Series 1 Middleweight Champion, and even ripped a fibreglass tusk away from Matilda, not shown on television.
Mammoth, although it weighed as much as most of the other competitors in the melee, was in fact a Lightweight class robot, due to it being a walkerbot. The only reason that Mammoth participated in this event was because the Lightweight Championship that was to be held during Extreme 1 had been cancelled.
This battle marked the first appearance of Team Typhoon in any Robot Wars competition. Conversely, it was also the last appearance of former Middleweight champion Hard Cheese.
