Scrap Dragon was a competitor robot that attempted to qualify for Series 6 and Series 7 of Robot Wars. It failed to qualify for either series after losing its qualifier battles.

Scrap Dragon was a red wedged box-shaped robot designed to resemble a dragon. Its weapons were a small front lifter, a actuating head and mouth and a rear flywheel-powered flail which was meant to represent the dragon's 'tail'. The robot also featured a 'dragon's head' at the front which acted as a clamp, as well as a pair of wings with top-mounted spikes which acted as Scrap Dragon's srimech. Scrap Dragon was also initially armed with a flamethrower situated within its jaws, however due to the show's rules, this was removed before the qualifiers of Series 6.

Scrap Dragon first attempted to qualify for Series 6, fighting The Stag, Shell Shock and Gyrobot in its qualifier battle. It initially started strongly, ramming into Shell Shock and The Stag before sustaining a hit from Gyrobot's rim. Scrap Dragon spun around before driving onto the dummy Floor Flipper and firing its flail, then temporarily lost mobility after driving into Shell Shock. It started moving again just as The Stag slammed it side-on and pushed it round in circles, before being hit by Gyrobot and attacking The Stag again. Scrap Dragon was eventually immobilised following another slam from Gyrobot, and lost the qualifier to The Stag, after both Shell Shock and Gyrobot also broke down during the battle. As a result, Scrap Dragon failed to qualify for the Sixth Wars.

A virtually unchanged Scrap Dragon returned to qualify for Series 7, but as before, it failed to qualify for the televised competition.

Scrap Dragon fought at a few live events before the filming of Series 7. One of these was at a Roaming Robots event in May 2003 in Daventry. Scrap Dragon had only one fight at the event, which was a loss to Dantomkia.[1] It is also known to have faced Leveller 2 at one point before soon retiring.
