"I'm looking forward to the pink robot causing as much damage as a baby robot can"
— Philippa Forrester pre-battle, and in for a disappointment
Ellie's Little Pink-Bot never moved off the start, Typhoon Thunder collided with it a couple of times, after which the pink robot moved, either in a brief spasm of life, or under the recoil from a hit from Typhoon Thunder. Refbot then counted out Ellie's Little Pink-Bot, Growler attacking it with a jet from its rarely-seen flamethrower. Shunt then pushed Ellie's Little Pink-Bot onto the flipper, and it was thrown across the arena and into the pit release tyre.
Growler then knocked the tyre off the wall, and crushed it, along with Ellie's Little Pink-Bot. After dragging the tyre and the pink robot across the arena, Growler briefly roasted both object on the flame pit, before putting them on the flipper for the second time- this time the tyre landed out of the arena. After cease was called, Growler gave one last almighty charge to rip panels off Ellie's Little Pink-Bot, and Shunt finally pitted it, leaving Typhoon Thunder the Lightweight Champions, despite doing almost nothing.
"We didn't get going because the motors will drive it providing the drive wheels are off the ground, as soon as we put it on the ground, it weighs too much for it and it wouldn't move!"
This was the only Lightweight competition held beside the inaugural competition in Series 2. Therefore Typhoon's victory brought to an end the longest reigning champion in Robot Wars, Slippery Strana, with the exception of Kick Robut, who never had its title contested.
This also marked the second championship victory for Team Typhoon, who would clinch their third title later on in the same episode.
Typhoon Thunder's victory in this battle makes it the only Robot Wars robot to have won in two weight classes, due to it also being one half of the Middleweight clusterbotTyphoon Twins. This feat has been matched by La Machine in the original American Robot Wars.
Mammoth, being a lightweight class robot competing in Extreme Series 2, should've taken part in this event, however, the team accidentally listed Mammoth as being a middleweight, and hadn't realised their mistake until too late.
