"Robot royalty. With a weapon that weighs more than any of the competitors, this can only mean trouble for anyone who dares enter the CPZ. But no one would be silly enough to do that...would they?"
— The Robot Wars website on Sir Killalot in the reboot

Sir Killalot (known as Sir K in Nickelodeon Robot Wars and often otherwise shortened to Killalot) was one of the most famous House Robots from the UK TV show Robot Wars. He made his debut in Series 2, and has appeared in every series since, including Robot Wars Extreme, all international versions and the reboot. Sir Killalot was one of the largest and best-known House Robots, often appearing at the centre of most Robot Wars merchandise, advertisements and press material during both runs of the show. His main weapons were hydraulic crushing jaws and a rotating lance, each mounted on a pair of independently operating arms either side of his body.

Design[]

"Our master of disaster! 200 kilos of gloom and doom, the lance to chew, the hydraulic claw to cut through- the nip and tuck, and you're out of luck!"
Jonathan Pearce in Series 5

Sir Killalot official image from Series 2

Sir Killalot was a large blue tracked House Robot initially designed to resemble an alien knight, although his backstory in the Robot Wars Technical Manual perpetuates him to be a time-travelling autonomous fighting unit. He featured a distinctive head, chest plate and shoulder pads resembling pieces of medieval armour, as well as sets of three blinking red LEDs forming his 'eyes', a pair of hydraulically operated arms mounted on either side of his chassis, and a rear mesh exoskeleton with top-mounted spikes protecting his otherwise-exposed internals. Both arms featured his signature weapons - a set of crushing pincers (left) and a rotating drill-like 'lance' (right) - which could raise to allow Sir Killalot to lift competitors as he turned them over, caused damage, threw them across the arena or carried them to hazards such as the Pit or the Flame Pit.

Sir Killalot in Series 3

Sir Killalot's pincers originally had a crushing force of 15 tons, and were intended to grab competitors as well as pierce, crumple or even snap parts of their weapons, chassis or axles in half. They were also capable of lifting over 100kg (220lbs) with ease, allowing him to pick competitors up before carrying and dropping them over arena hazards and side walls. In Series 2-3, these existed in the form of a set of crushing pincers adapted from the 'jaws of life' used to rescue people from road accidents, in actuality a similar apparatus used by firefighters with a crushing force of 8 tons.[1] A similar set of pincers would also be used by Sgt. Bash in Series 3. However, these were replaced by custom-made jaws from Series 4 onwards, which were noticeably larger and opened much wider than the pincers previously used. In Series 6, 101's creator, Mike Franklin built a new set of enlarged jaws for Sir Killalot for the remainder of the original series.

Sir Killalot's lance, meanwhile was intended to spear and drill through competitors' armour, although this capability was not seen as often as it was not powerful enough to drill through most types of armour. However, the lance was equally as capable of lifting competitors off the arena floor as the jaws, as well as rotating and twisting them over when it was raised and destroying a robot's internals if it managed to poke through exposed gaps in its chassis.

"Awesome, majestic, with a deadly claw capable of cutting through solid steel. Sir Killalot thrives on wanton destruction!"
Jonathan Pearce introduces Sir Killalot in Series 2

Design sketches for Sir Killalot, including versions with a flamethrower instead of a lance

For his initial appearance in Series 2, Sir Killalot took ten days to build, and was still being finished as he was being transported to the studio for filming. He had several distinctive features in this series which were subsequently altered or replaced, such as a spiked steel rod on his right arm instead of his lance, as well as a more tapered and closer-fitting rear exoskeleton and white LED 'eyes' instead of his later red ones. Both of Sir Killalot's arms also raised and lowered together instead of being operated independently, and his jaws were mounted on extra hinges on his left arm, allowing them to lift at a 135 degree angle. While the latter capability was rarely seen during the Second Wars, Sir Killalot's jaws and rod in this series were still highly effective in lifting and causing damage to competitors.

According to Oliver Steeples and Team Tornado, the original build was based on a Honda industrial tracked wheelbarrow, with Leeson 24v 300W motors for drive and an 8hp Briggs and Stratton motor acting as a hydraulic pump for both arms.[1][2]

The back end of Sir Killalot

In order to increase the movement in his arms, Sir Killalot's hydraulics were improved and his shoulder pads - which he was fitted with in Series 2 - were removed for Series 3. Additionally, his rear exoskeleton was enlarged and mounted differently, the jaws permanently fixed to the end of his left arm, and the white LEDs swapped for his more famous red ones. However, the shoulder pads were refitted for Series 4. Following his early upgrades and cosmetic changes, Sir Killalot's appearance and armament remained consistent throughout the later series of the original Robot Wars.

Official shot of Sir Killalot in Series 7

Sir Killalot weighed considerably heavier than most of the other House Robots, at 520kg, the second heaviest by the end of the original series' run. He was regularly implied to be their 'leader' by the show's hosts and Jonathan Pearce, among others, and was even claimed to have no weaknesses on his statistics boards. Even so, he was prone to catching fire, overbalancing, or having his chest plate or tracks damaged by competitors from time to time. One of Sir Killalot's most memorable methods of 'punishing' a competitor would be to pick it up with his jaws and carry it around, before spinning around on the spot and opening his jaws after a few seconds, throwing said competitor a considerable distance across the arena. This was often referred to as his 'spin trick'.

The new Sir Killalot in the arena

Along with Matilda, Dead Metal and Shunt, a new version of Sir Killalot was built by Robo Challenge for Series 8, featuring a considerably enlarged and upgraded design but retaining his dark blue and grey colour scheme. His head and body now feature a grungier, predominantly 'Space Marine'-inspired influence, with a revised head and shoulder pads, more durable ARMOX armour offering improved protection to his internals and tracks, and front ramming blades beneath his signature chest plate intended to push competitors away.

Rear view of the new Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot's weight had been dramatically increased to 741kg, while his enlarged pincers open at up to 700mm wide and have a crushing force of 2.5 tonnes. While his lance was de-emphasised as a weapon, both of his arms now have a lifting capacity of up to 300kg, while his internals have also been significantly upgraded, allowing him to reach a considerably higher top speed of 10mph - double that of his previous incarnation. His power source in this form comes from eight sealed lead acid batteries, eliminating the risk of catching fire as with the old petrol engine and allowing smoother and more powerful arm movements.

In Series 9, Sir Killalot was equipped with a new claw, and his weight was increased to 750kg, matching the weight of Mr. Psycho.

Etymology[]

Sir Killalot's name is a pun on Sir Lancelot, one of the Knights of the Round Table from Arthurian legend. The Arthurian connotations were further reflected in his original design, which was that of an alien knight.

In Nickelodeon Robot Wars, Sir Killalot's name was shortened to Sir K, one of a number of changes to make the show more suitable for the younger audience on Nickelodeon. This name was also occasionally used in the first run of Robot Wars Magazine[3][4].

Robot History[]

Series 2[]

Craig Charles: "Catch your breath, there's one more! The biggest, baddest, butchest of them all! Ladies and gentlemen, bow down to the mechanical might of Sir Killalot"
Jonathan Pearce: "Awesome, majestic, with a deadly claw capable of cutting through solid steel! Sir Killalot thrives on wanton destruction!"
— Craig Charles and Jonathan Pearce introduce Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot made his Robot Wars debut in Series 2, being introduced at the end of the House Robot introductions in Heat A. To demonstrate the power of his claws, he cut through a metal bar held by Craig Charles.

"Now you might think Sir Killalot's giving it some of that. You might think he's all mouth and no trousers, but look what he can do! Lump of metal, robotic arm... Awesome power personified!"
— Craig Charles as Sir Killalot cuts through the metal bar

Sir Killalot spears Napalm

He made his first appearance in The Gauntlet, where he was used on the left-hand route. He quickly made an impact, as during the first Gauntlet run of the series, Napalm became stuck on the blocks as it tried pushing through the wall. Sir Killalot came over to the middle route, got behind Napalm and used his lance to lift the robot up. As he pushed and lifted Naplam, he knocked the chainsaw out of the back, then pinned Napalm against a pyramid.

"And there's Sir Killalot coming in round the back! He's mean! He's moody! He's magnificent! He's menacing! Napalm, one of the heavyweight robots, but look at that, a lightweight in the arms of Sir Killalot! And look at that, the chainsaw's come off! That's the weaponry gone! 16 inches long it may be, but it's no opponent for Sir Killalot, and he could dominate Robot Wars!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Napalm

However, Sir Killalot became stuck against the ramp as time ran out.

Craig Charles: "You must be gutted though, I mean he's... he... smashed it to pieces!"
Claire Greenaway: "So is he! Look at him!"
David Crosby: "He's dead as well, he's stuck!"
— The Dartford Girls Grammar team notice Sir Killalot is stuck

Sir Killalot also left the left-hand route in the next Gauntlet run, Panda Monium's, when it became caught whilst driving through the ramrig, although Panda Monium managed to get free before Sir Killalot could catch it.

Sir Killalot lifts Piece de Resistance over the wall

Piece de Resistance proved unable to knock through the brick wall, so Sir Killalot and Matilda came over, each getting one side of the competitor. Sir Killalot blocked it with his lance, and Matilda used her tusks to lift it. Matilda let Piece de Resistance down, only for Sir Killalot to pin it against a fence, then used his lance and claw arm to lift it up, and lifted it over the wall.

"...and look at the power! And look at the bad mood! It's picked up like a piece of fluff! Piece de Resistance - no resistance there! Surrender!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot lifted Piece de Resistance

Caliban is intercepted by Sir Killalot

The inverted Caliban is pushed back towards the start

Caliban tried to go down the left route, but Sir Killalot blocked its way, and as it tried spinning its flail, Sir Killalot used his lance to ram Caliban, then hooked a loose cable and lifted the whole robot up, before dropping it onto its top and pushing it against the top fence. As a result, Caliban came last in the leaderboard, and was left with the worst score in the history of the Gauntlet.

"Sir Killalot closes in though! Can he stop that flail, flail... rock and roll! Caliban dead and buried - hoisted by his own petard!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Caliban is flipped over by Sir Killalot.

According to Oliver Steeples, Sir Killalot chopped one of Caliban's wheels after turning it over, and after the Gauntlet run, a member of Team TFOSICA later complained to Philippa Forrester that Caliban's Gauntlet run was fixed in an attempt to showcase the strength of Sir Killalot, but these moments were not shown on television[5].

Sir Killalot drives into Victor, pushing it free of the blocks

Sir Killalot actually unintentionally helped Victor when it became stuck on one of the blocks. It broke through the wall, but one of the blocks was under its ground clearance, and Victor was unable to drive over it, preventing it from driving forwards, and as it tried driving over it, it got stuck. Sir Killalot got behind it, pushing it and driving up onto the blocks.

"We know he can squeeze and break metal, but he can't catch Victor!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Victor gets away from Sir Killalot

This knocked Victor free, and it went on to complete the Gauntlet.

Craig Charles: "At first I thought, well you had the power to break through the wall, and then you seemed to get stuck and then your wheels were spinning, and then it was like Killalot came and helped you out in a way, didn't he?"
Guy Pickett: "He's suddenly become a good friend of ours!"
— Post-Gauntlet Interview

Demolition Demon gets around Sir Killalot

Demolition Demon became the first competitor to get around him in the Gauntlet. Demolition Demon took the left route and drove straight into Sir Killalot's front. As Sir Killalot reversed a little, Demolition Demon turned and drove around the House Robot, then drove down the route before Sir Killalot could push it.

Sir Killalot was used in the Skittles Trial in that Heat, his first use in a Trial. Sergeant Bash and Matilda were the first line of defence to try and prevent the competitors reaching the triangle, before Sir Killalot came out of the corner.

Demolition Demon is lifted over

Towards the end of Demolition Demon's run, Matilda lifted it up with her tusks, and turned it onto its side with the help of Sergeant Bash. Sir Killalot used his lance to hook the top armour, crumpling it as he pulled it back. As he did so, Matilda used her chainsaw to scratch into the base, and Sir Killalot pulled Demolition Demon onto its back.

"Demolition Demon, certainly ruffling the feathers of the House Robots! And they seem to have gone berserk! They're angry! They want revenge! And Demolition Demon is bearing the brunt of their anger! Come on, stop it! They've gone berserk!"
— Jonathan Pearce as the House Robots turn Demolition Demon

Sir Killalot grills Piece de Resistance

Piece de Resistance proved unable to knock over the barrels, and as it reversed for another attempt, Sir Killalot blocked it, and Matilda got at the side and flipped it over. After Cease was called, Sir Killalot used his claw to pick Piece de Resistance up and held it over the flame pit.

"But look at this! Piece de Resistance has become some sort of dreadful plaything for Killalot! Broiled boggle eyes! You will not be going to the ball, cinders!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot holds Piece de Resistance over the flames

Sergeant Bash and Sir Killalot close in on both robots

Victor stuck on Sir Killalot

During the Arena stage battle between Victor and Demolition Demon, Victor broke down, so Sir Killalot came over, and as he rammed it, he used his lance to lift it up. However, Victor became caught on Sir Killalot, and Sir Killalot dragged it back down the arena. Sir Killalot pushed it, until it fell off.

"Killalot closing in on Victor and picking him up, so effortlessly, and trawling him away like some ghastly trophy! Back to his demonic cave!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drags Victor back

However, Sir Killalot was absent from the Heat Final between Napalm and Demolition Demon, the only Gauntlet run, trial run or battle in this episode he was absent from.

Sir Killalot was used in left route of the Gauntlet again in Heat B. However, this episode saw little action from Sir Killalot in the Gauntlet as no robots went for his route, and due to the wall in the middle route being barrels instead of blocks, robots did not become stuck like they had in Heat A.

Sir Killalot turns Leighviathan over

The only Gauntlet run he was involved in during this Heat was Leighviathan's. Leighviathan was having problems getting past the barrels, and Sir Killalot came over to the middle route and used his lance to skewer the side of one of the wheels and easily lift the whole robot up, then dropped it on the barrels, then pushed it onto its side, before knocking it onto its back with its claw.

"Sir Killalot simply lifted it up, like a leaf! And there, slam! I think they've done enough though..."
— Jonathan Pearce watching the replay of Sir Killalot turning Leighviathan over

Sir Killalot pits Chaos

During the end credits after the Heat Final, he grabbed Chaos by the wheel with his claw, picked it up and took it the pit, making Chaos first robot ever to be pitted

Sir Killalot was not used in the Gauntlet in Heat C, the first time he was not used in the Gauntlet since his introduction.

Sir Killalot picks up Dreadnaut

Sir Killalot cuts through parts of Dreadnaut

In the Arena stage battle between Dreadnaut and Oblivion, Dreadnaut failed to start as the team accidentally knocked the power key out. As Matilda pulled the immobile Dreadnaut back, Sir Killalot used his lance to lift the robot up onto its side, then grabbed the robot by the front with his claw, picking the whole robot off the ground. Sir Killalot carried it up the arena, then dropped it, ripping off the front armour. He then used his claw to cut through the mechanism for the forks, before turning the whole robot over. Sir Killalot was shown holding the front of Dreadnaut at the start of the next battle.

"Sir Killalot, you've just seen grotesquely keeping hold of his scalp from Dreadnaut!"
— Jonathan Pearce at the start of the battle between Mortis and Rameses II

Flames begun to erupt as Sir Killalot holds Rameses II

In the battle, he picked up Rameses II with his claw when it was stuck in the PPZ, carried it to the flame pit, and held it over the flame pit before dropping it there.

Craig Charles: "It was a bit scary when Killalot picked you up and dangled you over the fire and sort of barbecued you like a burger."
Team Isis: "We are flameproof, no worries about the fire!"
— Post-battle interview

Sir Killalot closes in as Bodyhammer gets stuck on the ramrig

Sir Killalot was used in the Gauntlet again in Heat D, starting on the left route as usual. However, like Heat B, his role in the Gauntlet was limited because no competitors took his route. Bodyhammer became stuck on the ram rig after it got under its ground clearance, so Sir Killalot came in behind it. He used his lance to push it off, but Bodyhammer drove into the other side of the ramrig, once again getting stuck. Sir Killalot pushed it against the saw blades with his lance, and time ran out, leading to the elimination of the third seed.

"Oh look at Killalot! In comes his lance! Scratching, mutilating! The circular saws, grinding!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pins Bodyhammer

Elvis became stuck after knocking down the blocks, but unusually, Sir Killalot did not come over to finish it off.

Sir Killalot rips off Inquisitor's flail

Sir Killalot topples Inquisitor, also lifting Dead Metal

The Heat Final proved to be one of Sir Killalot's most notable battles of the series. Behemoth pushed Inquisitor into him, and he raised his lance, effortlessly ripping off the bar for the flail.

"Look at the chain! I think Sir Killalot wants a little bit of jewellery there, a bracelet!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot breaks Inquisitor's flail

Sir Killalot carries Inquisitor to the pit

Later in the battle, Behemoth pushed Inquisitor into the PPZ, and Dead Metal pushed it into Sir Killalot. With Inquisitor pinned between the two House Robots, Sir Killalot pierced the side with his lance and lifted it up as he pushed it against Dead Metal. Matilda got her tusks under Inquisitor, then Sir Killalot got behind Inquisitor, getting his lance underneath it, lifting it over. However, as he did so, he got too close to Dead Metal, so his lance got under one of his fellow House Robots claws, so Sir Killalot lifted him up as well. During the credits, picked Inquisitor up with his claw, and carried it to the pit. After holding it in the air, he dropped it in the pit.

Sir Killalot turns Schumey over

In the Gauntlet stage of Heat E, Sir Killalot started on the left route like usual, although he did come over to the other two routes on occasions. During Schumey's run, it accidentally fell off the side of the see-saw when it tried driving over it too fast, so Sir Killalot came over to the middle route to attack. He got the lance at the back of Schumey and tried lifting it, but as he did so, one of his tracks fell over the side, so he had to struggle down. After getting off the see-saw, Sir Killalot tried again, driving back up the see-saw and getting the lance on the side of one of the wheels. He lifted the whole robot up then dropped it, turning it over.

"Picked up, picked over, Schumey! Plucked into the air! OH, and no further!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Schumey

Spin Doctor is pinned in the ramrig.

Sir Killalot came over to the right route when Spin Doctor proved too wide to get past the ramrig, and pushed it into the other side of the ramrig, against the saws.

"This is called Sir Killalot, he's a nice chap! He'll rip you apart, shred you, spit you out, and whatever's left goes to the circular saws!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pins Spin Doctor against the ramrig

Spin Doctor only covered 3.8m, which left it last on the leaderboard and usually would have eliminated it, but Pain was forced to withdraw due to an electrical fault.

Sir Killalot tries attacking Killertron through the fence, lifting the fence

Strangely, during Killertron's run, whilst it was being blocked by Dead Metal and Shunt in the middle route, Sir Killalot kept ramming into the fence separating the lane, behind where Killertron was, with his lance, bending it and trying to lift it.

Sir Killalot was absent from  the two Arena stage semi-finals, and although he was present for the Heat Final, he was not involved in the battle.

Heat F was one of Sir Killalot's busiest episodes in terms of the Gauntlet. Although no robots went for the left route where he started, Sir Killalot came over to the middle route for four of the five competitors' Gauntlet runs.

Panic Attack lands on Dead Metal, after Sir Killalot held up the see-saw

First, during Panic Attack's run, he came over to the middle route as Panic Attack was stopped by the spikes, then became caught on the tank trap. As the House Robot closed in, Panic Attack got free and tried to cross the see-saw, but Sir Killalot chased after it and drove onto the see-saw, holding it up. With Sir Killalot right behind it, Panic Attack charged off the end, but landed on top of Dead Metal.

"Killalot coming in, but holding the see-saw down! Oh that's demonic! And that's Evil Knievel from Panic Attack!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot holds down the see-saw, and Panic Attack rushes off the end

Disruptor is turned over

Sir Killalot also came over to the middle route as Ron ran the Gauntlet. As Ron tried to drive over the see-saw, Sir Killalot drove onto the see-saw, and pushed it with his lance. Trying to get away, Ron drove off the see-saw. In the next run, Dead Metal pushed the see-saw askew before Disruptor could cross it, and Sir Killalot came over behind it. Disruptor tried driving up the see-saw, but got stuck on the side, and Sir Killalot pushed it along the edge, then got his lance underneath and turned it over with his lance.

Whirling Dervish is lifted by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot turns Whirling Dervish over for Shunt to axe

Sir Killalot came over to the middle route as Whirling Dervish tried to run the Gauntlet, and when it fell off the see-saw, he skewered the flail with his lance and pulled the robot back, turning it over. He then picked it up and carried it over the see-saw, only to turn it back over so Shunt could axe it.

"Well you may spin and turn, and whirl, but against Sir Killalot, that's feeble! But Sir Killalot's dragging him the wrong way, in other words, further down the course! Surely there'll be some sort of stewards inquiry here from the other teams, because they're gaining yardage? Or is there some sort of rhyme and reason to the robot madness? Is he dragging Whirling Dervish to the kill from Shunt!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks Whirling Dervish up and carries it down the course

Like the previous Heat, Sir Killalot was absent from both the Arena stage semi-finals, and although he was used in the Heat Final, he was not involved in the battle.

Sir Killalot drives over Limpet

Sir Killalot cuts Limpet's track

Heat G saw The Sentinel introduced in Gauntlet, so Sir Killalot was moved to the middle route. Only one of the competitors took the middle route, Limpet, and Sir Killalot blocked it as it drove over the see-saw, pushing it against the fence. As it tried to get past, Sir Killalot drove onto the top of the competitor, pushing his lance down against the fence to help lift himself up as he drove onto Limpet}}

"Takes on Killalot? Crushed by Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drives up and over Limpet

Although Sir Killalot reversed off, Dead Metal grabbed Limpet, and Sir Killalot used his claw to cut through one of its tracks.

Nemesis squeezes past Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot also came over to the right route on a couple of occasions to try and prevent competitors finishing. Nemesis managed to get past Sergeant Bash, but Sir Killalot came over to the middle route as it tried to get past Dead Metal, blocking it and forcing it back onto the flame pit. Despite being on fire, Nemesis managed to get to the end when Sir Killalot reversed.

R.O.C.S. is picked up by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot was responsible for the elimination of R.O.C.S. It was being blocked by Sergeant Bash, and Sir Killalot came over to the right route, got his lance under the forklift and lifted the robot up onto its side.

This Heat saw Sir Killalot's first use in a Trial since Heat A, as the Skittles returned, but he would not be used in any of the other Trials across the Heats.

Sir Killalot pins down Roadblock in the Skittles

He almost caused one of the biggest shocks of the series during Roadblock's run, as he was almost responsible for the elimination of the reigning champion. Roadblock reached the triangle and was doing well, knocking over 34 barrels, but it drove out of the triangle and Sir Killalot pinned it down with his claw. The next three competitors all managed to score more, so only Limpet's poor run prevented elimination of reigning champion.

In contrast to the previous two Heats, Sir Killalot was used in both the Arena stage semi-finals, but not the Heat Final, although he was not involved in either battle.

In Heat H, Sir Killalot was used in the middle route in the Gauntlet. Only one of the six competitors came down the middle route, although Sir Killalot did go to the left route during Rampage's run when it lost drive on one side, and he and Dead Metal blocked it.

Sir Killalot falls forwards

GroundHog was the only competitor to take the middle route, and it accidentally drove into the side of the ramp. Sir Killalot came over and grabbed it with his claw and lifted it up, prompting booing from the audience. However, when Sir Killalot turned, the House Robot suddenly overbalanced and toppled forwards onto his front, immobilising both robots and causing Sir Killalot to leak hydraulic fluid.

"It plucks up GroundHog so effortlessly, turns and twists, ready for the kill... NO! They've killed Killalot! He's been dragged to the ground, it's never happened before! This is the king of the House Robots, this is unbelievable!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot falls forwards

The GroundHog team received a standing ovation when they returned to the pits.

Craig Charles: "That was pretty stunning wasn't it!"
Graham Bone: "It wasn't too bad"
Craig Charles: "He picked you up and started posing..."
Graham Bone: "And then he fell over!"
— GroundHog's post run interview after Sir Killalot fell over

GroundHog attacks Sir Killalot

GroundHog also attacked him in its battle against Loco. Sir Killalot appeared to be immobile in the PPZ, so GroundHog drove at it with its spinning disc, hitting the rear and causing sparks, and tried to cut through the hydraulic cables on the side, but it couldn't get close enough to the pipes before Dead Metal grabbed it and pulled it away.

Cassius attempts to flip Sir Killalot

In the other Arena stage semi-final, Cassius pushed Wizard into the PPZ, where it became immobilised, but Sir Killalot drove at Cassius, driving up the front wedge. Cassius fired the flipper, getting out from underneath him. As the House Robots attacked the immobile Wizard, Cassius rammed into them.

Craig Charles: "You took on everyone – Shunt, Dead Metal, you even had a good go at Killalot!"
Rex Garrod: "Well, you’ve got to try, haven’t you? That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? We’re here to fight!"
Craig Charles: "You’re here to fight, and you did certainly get stuck in!"
— Interview following Cassius’s Heat Semi-Final victory

Sir Killalot pins King Buxton against a spike on the fence

Heat I was one of Sir Killalot's busiest Heats, particularly in the Gauntlet, where he played a key role in preventing all six competitors from completing the Gauntlet, making this the only Heat where none of the competitors completed the Gauntlet. First, King Buxton tried charging past him, but Sir Killalot got his lance underneath, lifting it up and pushing it against the fence. King Buxton fell off the lance and tried to get past, but was blocked by one of the spikes, and Sir Killalot pinned it down with the lance.

"Killalot's lance doing the damage. That has proved so effective in Robot Wars."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pins King Buxton

Sir Killalot blocks Prometheus in the Gauntlet

He also blocked Prometheus as it tried to drive down the left route. The Sentinel pinned Prometheus against the wall, and Sir Killalot pushed Prometheus back up the course. Prometheus tried pushing against the House Robot, forcing him back a little, but Sir Killalot pushed back with his lance, getting the lance under the front saw and lifting Prometheus up. Sir Killalot dropped it, then prevented it making any more progress by blocking it with his lance.

Sir Killalot cuts a spike off Rottweiler

Rottweiler became stuck after it made a wrong turn trying to drive up the ramp, and Sir Killalot lifted it up by the spikes with his claw and cut through one of the front spikes.

Sir Killalot pins Cruella against the ramrig

Sir Killalot was responsible for the elimination of Cruella. Cruella tried to drive down the middle route, but Sir Killalot blocked the way and pushed it. Cruella tried driving away, but drove into the ramrig, and Sir Killalot pinned it against the saws. He reversed a little, and when Cruella turned around, he drove up the front wedge, leaving it unable to move, and pushed it into one of the saws.

All Torque is lifted up by Sir Killalot, and Sergeant Bash sets fire to the underside

Sir Killalot, Matilda and Sergeant Bash all blocked All Torque to prevent it from completing the Gauntlet, and Sir Killalot got his lance underneath All Torque and lifted it up, and Sergeant Bash set fire to the underside. Sir Killalot dropped it, and All Torque tried to drive past, but Sir Killalot pinned it against the fence with his lance. Matilda got her tusks underneath and lifted it, and Sir Killalot grabbed the side with his claw.

Sir Killalot lifts Robo-Doc, but catches fire

The most notable Gauntlet run in this Heat was Robo Doc's. Sir Killalot blocked it with his lance, and he and Sergeant Bash prevented it from getting past. Sir Killalot grabbed Robo Doc's side and picked the robot up whilst Sergeant Bash blasted it with his flamethrower, but Sir Killalot also caught fire.

"Oh but look, Killalot's on fire! Killalot's aflame! Robo Doc's in the air, I wonder if they've done enough? What damage to Killalot?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot catches fire

Sir Killalot pits All Torque

Sir Killalot was also used in all three Arena stage battles. In the Heat Final, he used his lance to finish off All Torque, pushing it into the pit after All Torque left it stranded on the side.

Despite dominating the Gauntlet in Heat I, technical issues prevented Sir Killalot from being used in the Gauntlet stage of Heat J. His place was taken up by Matilda, a substitution which was televised in Episode 10 of Robot Wars Revealed.

Kill Dozer is roasted over the flames by Sir Killalot

Like in Heat I, he was used in all three battles in the Arena stage. In the semi-final between Ivanhoe and Kill Dozer, he used his claw and lance to pick up Kill Dozer after it got caught in the PPZ, then carried it over to the flame pit, and after holding it over the flames for 45 seconds, then carried it to the pit and dropped it in.

"There's Sir Killalot! Hoisting aloft Kill Dozer! They spent four months building their baby, and they can laugh? They're mad! "Burn!" they're saying! Burn Baby Burn, Dozer Inferno! And they just love it, what's wrong with them?!"

Sir Killalot tries to prevent Demon completing the Gauntlet

Heat K saw Sir Killalot used in the middle route of the Gauntlet again, although came over to the left route during Demon's run, and went over to the right route to try and prevent Mega Hurts finishing. Demon had managed to push Matilda down the route, so Sir Killalot came around to the left route as Demon tried to get around Matilda and reach the end. Sir Killalot blocked the end and pushed Demon against the fence with his lance to try and prevent Demon finishing, though Demon managed to get its front wedge into the end zone, meaning it completed the Gauntlet, although Sir Killalot continued pushing after Cease was called.

"He's a bit miffed actually!"
— Craig Charles to Nick Adams after he noted Sir Killalot was still pushing him during the post-Gauntlet interview

Mega Hurts lifts Sir Killalot

During Mega Hurts' run, it got past Sergeant Bash, so Sir Killalot came over to the right route, blocking the way. Mega Hurts tried to get around, but Sir Killalot blocked the way with its lance. Mega Hurts tried turning the other way, but Sir Killalot pinned it against the fence. Mega Hurts managed to get its lifter underneath the House Robot and actually managed to lift him. Mega Hurts dropped Sir Killalot, and Sir Killalot reversed, allowing Mega Hurts to complete the Gauntlet.

Phoenix falls off the ramp trying to avoid Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot cuts through Phoenix's tyre

Sir Killalot did manage to end Phoenix's run. As it tried driving over the ramp, Sir Killalot drove up the other side of the ramp, and Phoenix tried driving off the side of the ramp, but got stuck as it did so, its spikes getting caught on the side. Sir Killalot pushed the sphere into it, pushing it down from the ramp, then blocked the way. Phoenix turned around and charged in reverse at Sir Killalot with its rear spike, but Sir Killalot merely pushed it against the side of the ramp, pinning it there, then used his claw to slice through the tyre. Sir Killalot used his claw and lance to hold Phoenix still, preventing it from making any more progress, causing it to be eliminated.

"What on Earth's he doing now, which way is he going? Oh he's turning the spike! That's what he was doing, to try and ram Killalot! Is that wise! Ohhhh noooo! That's Horrendous from Killalot! Crunch! That's the end of that wheel!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Phoenix tries to ram Sir Killalot, only to be pinned against the ramp and have its tyre sliced through

Demon is driven over by Sir Killalot

Plunderbird 2 chases Sir Killalot

For the third Heat in a row, Sir Killalot was used in all three of the battles in the Arena stage. During the battle between Demon and The Mule, when Demon broke down, Sir Killalot drove up on its front wedge. In the other semi-final between Plunderbird 2 and Enzyme, Plunderbird 2 intentionally drove after Sir Killalot towards the end of the battle, and Sir Killalot reversed away from it, so Plunderbird 2 went back after Enzyme.

Flirty Skirty tumbles into the pit

Heat L was a rather quiet Heat in terms of the Gauntlet for Sir Killalot. He started in the middle route as usual, but no robots went down that route. He did drive over to the left route a couple of times, first during Havoc's run, when he came around to the top of the left route whilst Dead Metal grabbed it. During Flirty Skirty's run, The Sentinel pushed it right by the pit, and it could not get out. Sir Killalot came over, getting his lance under Flirty Skirty's skirt, lifting it up, and reversed, dropping it into the pit.  

Sir Killalot carries Vercingetorix to the pit

In the Arena Stage, Sir Killalot was used in all three of the Arena stage battles once again. In the first semi-final, between Haardvark and Vercingetorix, after Vercingetorix broke down, Sir Killalot used his lance to push it onto the flame pit, and after letting it burn for a little while, he got his lance under the armour and picked Vercingetorix up, carrying it to the pit and dropping it in.

Sir Killalot lifts the skirts off Flirty Skirty

In the other semi-final, Havoc pushed Flirty Skirty into the PPZ, where it stopped moving, so Sir Killalot got his lance under the armour and lifted it up, ripping it off from the top of the robot. Sir Killalot carried Flirty Skirty around the arena, dragging it close to the flame pit, but could not get the lance free.

"...using the claws it seemed, to break open the upper shell of Flirty Skirty, yes he has, look! And now lifting, the upper skirts of Flirty Skirty off! No petticoats underneath look, just machinery! Up it goes... almost up... and off! Good gad Sir! You have disrobed Flirty Skirty! You cad Sir Killalot! It is not done in Robot Wars to leave a young lady so vulnerable!"
— Sir Killalot is reprimanded by Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot was not used in the Gauntlet in either of the Semi-Finals, but he was used in the Pinball Trial in both episodes, the only Trial he was used in during this series apart from the Skittles. He had the freedom of the arena, and could chase after the competitors and try and end their runs.

Napalm is held over the flame it by Sir Killalot

During Napalm's run, it turned at the wrong moment whilst trying to cross the see-saw and fell off the side. With it stuck, Sir Killalot came over, got his lance underneath and lifted it onto its back. With the underside exposed, Sir Killalot grabbed the frame with his claw and lifted the whole robot up, carrying it to the flame pit and holding it over the flames until time ran out.

"Ooh, that dreadful lance! That's not the main weapon though, of Killalot, it's those awful claws! And there's a clause in his contract to destroy, kill and maim, and that's what they [the audience] want! This doesn't look good for Napalm! Napalm, burnt!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs the base of Napalm, picks it up and takes it to the flame pit

Sir Killalot nearly overbalances whilst lifting Behemoth

Sir Killalot pits Behemoth

Sir Killalot also ended Behemoth's run. He cornered it in the top corner after it knocked over some bricks and barrels, and got his lance under the front scoop when Behemoth fired it, lifting the robot clean off the ground. He nearly overbalanced forwards as he reversed, but fell back onto his tracks and carried Behemoth to the pit and dropped it in.

"And Killalot simply plucks it into thin air, and says "You've had enough fun boys! You're coming with me! You're gonna go in a pit!""
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Behemoth, carries it to the pit and drops it in

Sir Killalot lifts Killertron and cuts into the base

In Killertron's run, Sir Killalot cornered Killertron in the top corner after it knocked over the bricks, using his lance to lift Killertron up a little. Killertron tried to get free, firing the axe at Sir Killalot, and Sir Killalot lifted it up with his claw, slicing through the base, before dropping it and letting it go free.

Sir Killalot reverses into the pit

However, the Pinball saw one of Sir Killalot's most embarrassing moments of the series. Whilst Mortis was taking on Dead Metal at the bottom of the arena, Sir Killalot came over, but reversed because Dead Metal had Mortis in his grip. As he reversed, he drove to the edge of the pit, and whilst trying to turn away, he fell in.

"Operator Colin Tilley accidentally reversed Sir K into the pit in the second series, while trying to attack Mortis. Unfortunately, he "attacked" in the wrong direction, and it took 8 people to get the bot out of the pit."
Robot Wars Magazine on Sir Killalot's reversing into the pit[6]

Fortunately, Sir Killalot was not damaged, so was used for the remainder of the Pinball runs.

"They won't be pleased that Killalot's been retrieved from the pit!"
— Jonathan Pearce at the start of the next Pinball run

Sir Killalot lifts Roadblock in the Pinball

The second Semi-Final saw notable moments for Sir Killalot in all five of the competitors runs in the Pinball. First, during Roadblock's run, Roadblock reversed into Dead Metal and became caught on his pincers. Sir Killalot came over, got his lance underneath Roadblock and lifted it up, before dropping it back to the floor, allowing to score some late points.

"Go on, get beyond Killalot! No! Killalot's flail and pincers come in and the lance picks Roadblock and tosses, like some autumnal leaf!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Roadblock

Sir Killalot nearly drives into the pit

Sir Killalot becomes stuck on bricks

When King Buxton tried driving over the see-saw, Sir Killalot waited for it at the other end. Instead of driving off the end, King Buxton tried to avoid him by turning and driving the other way back up the see-saw, so Sir Killalot held the end of the see-saw with his lance, preventing it from falling. After a pause, King Buxton turned, then drove off the side. King Buxton went to one of the top corners to knock over the barrels and bricks, and Sir Killalot drove after it, but nearly drove into the pit. Sir Killalot drove along the edge of the pit and appeared to have King Buxton trapped in the corner, but King Buxton managed to get out over the bricks, and Sir Killalot became stuck on top of some bricks as he tried driving over them.

Sir Killalot carries GBH over the see-saw

During G.B.H's run, Sir Killalot was responsible for G.B.H.'s elimination, but also hit a number of the targets himself. Sir Killalot pushed the ball into G.B.H. as it knocked over some of the bricks, and pushed it away with his lance as G.B.H. reversed, causing it to roll into the pit. As G.B.H had contact with the ball as it was pushed, this was counted in its score. G.B.H. turned away and knocked over some more bricks, but Sir Killalot got behind it and got his lance under the back, lifting it up. As G.B.H. was picked up and fell off the lance, it fell into some of the barrels, knocking them over. G.B.H. fell onto the bricks, and was stuck, so Sir Killalot used his claw and lance to pick G.B.H. up and carried it away.

Sir Killalot about to drop G.B.H. into the pit

"Ooh! And Killalot flipping that heavyweight robot into the air! Oh, and look at the pincer, ready to move in for the kill, on the blade! Eek eek eek! A quick tweak! And now the lift! He [Mike Smith] knows there's nothing he can do!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs G.B.H. and picks it up

Sir Killalot actually carried it over the see-saw, toppling forwards as the see-saw fell, but pushed himself back up, before dropping it into the pit. G.B.H. was obviously not awarded the points for crossing the see-saw, but if it had, it would have been level with Haardvark.

Sir Killalot picks up Haardvark in the Pinball

Sir Killalot also picked and immobilised up Haardvark, pinning it in a top corner and getting his lance underneath, lifting it up and turning it on its side. However, it had already scored enough points to surpass G.B.H, resulting in the latter's elimination.

"I wish he could have another go at that Sir Killalot! We could go get him!"
— Liz Harrison to Craig Charles after the Pinball run

Cassius self-rights after being flipped by Sir Killalot

Most notably, Sir Killalot was involved in a moment of Robot Wars history during Cassius' run. Cassius drove onto a brick and became stuck, allowing Sir Killalot to get underneath with his lance, getting into one of the wheel holes and picking the robot up. Sir Killalot carried Cassius down the arena, dropping it on its top. Normally, this would have resulted in a competitor being immobilised, but Cassius was able to use its flipping arm to flip itself back onto its wheels, the first robot ever to successfully right itself after being flipped over, and went on to score more points. Had it not self-righted, it most likely would have been eliminated, as it had only knocked over some of the top right bricks and barrels before Sir Killalot turned it over.

"Haardvark lifted now, that's not fair surely! Just lifted up so effortlessly by Killalot, what a mean, horrific brute he is!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Haardvark is picked up by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot picks up Haardvark and Cassius gets away

Sir Killalot holds Haardvark over the flame pit

Sir Killalot was used in all four of the Arena stage battles across the two Semi-Finals, but was only involved in one of them. In the battle between Haardvark and Cassius, Sir Killalot unfairly intervened. One of Cassius' chains had fallen loose, and Haardvark reversed it into the PPZ. Sir Killalot lifted it up, then dropped it on top of Haardvark. With the two unable to separate as Haardvark could only drive back and forwards, Sir Killalot got his lance between the two competitors and raised it to separate them, but in doing so he hooked the back plate of Haardvark, which wasn't properly in the PPZ, lifting the whole robot up. Instead of dropping Haardvark, Sir Killalot carried it onto the flame pit and dropped it on its back on the flame pit.

"We were at the far end of the arena, with Sir Killalot closing in, and we just managed to push Cassius into Sir Killalot, but because we could only drive in the one direction, we couldn't get away. So instead of Cassius being picked up by Killalot, it was Haardvark! (Not that it would have made much difference with the self-righting mechanism!) So in the end we were dumped unceremoniously by Killalot, upside down on the flame pit, and toasted. At least we went out in a blaze of glory!"
— The Haardvark website[7]

Cassius flicks Sir Killalot off the front

As Haardvark burned, he drove onto the wedge of Cassius, which flicked him off using its flipper, as it had done in the Heats.

"...and look at Cassius! Well he almost lifted Killalot, we've never seen that before! That was very close!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Cassius flicks Sir Killalot off

Cassius is flipped over by Sir Killalot again

Sir Killalot turns Roadblock over

The Grand Final saw Sir Killalot used in all four battles. In the first eliminator between Cassius and Roadblock, Cassius accidentally drove into the PPZ whilst driving away from Roadblock, and Sir Killalot used his lance to flip it over, only for it to self-right like it did in the Semi-Final Pinball. Later, when Cassius flipped Roadblock onto its side against the arena wall, Sir Killalot came over, getting his lance in the base and dragged it away from the wall, dropping it onto its back.

"Killalot's deadly, dreadful lance pinning and flipping Roadblock! Matilda comes in, there's the awful pincer! The boys from Bodmin surely know they're up against it now! The House Robots are toying with the reigning champions!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot flips Roadblock over, and Matilda and Sir Killalot attack

Sir Killalot bathes Killertron in fire

After Panic Attack immobilised Killertron during the second Eliminator, Sir Killalot got his lance underneath Killertron and flipped it over, cutting into the side with his claw before pulling it out of the PPZ. Sir Killalot picked Killertron up by the axe using his lance, and held it over the flame pit.

Sir Killalot and Dead Metal pit Mortis

Sir Killalot had a lot of notable moments during The Grudge Matches special. In the Judgement Day battle between Cassius and Mortis, Mortis lost drive on one track and was spinning on the spot by the pit, but Cassius accidentally drove into the pit when it missed a charge. Sir Killalot and Dead Metal pushed Mortis into the pit anyway.

Malice is picked up by Sir Killalot

The innards of Forklift are exposed as Sir Killalot picks the robot up

The Reserve Rumble was one of Sir Killalot's most notable battles of the series. When Malice broke down, he picked it up with his lance, and carried it around the arena, first taking it near the flame pit, then taking it to the pit and dropping it in. Later, as Forklift was being attacked by Shunt and Dead Metal, Sir Killalot came over and got his lance underneath, flipping Forklift over, then grabbed the frame with his claw and picked it up, causing the top to fall off. He carried Forklift to the flame pit and held it over the flames, where the electronics caught fire, before dropping it and pushing it across the arena into the pit.

"Well I don't think we've seen a robot mashed up quite like this one!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pushes the remains of Forklift to the pit

Soc'em is pitted as Sir Killalot attacks Demon Duck

During the Super Heavyweight Championship, Sir Killalot caused a lot of damage to Demon Duck during the qualifiers, but it still ended up going through to the final. The House Robots had Demon Duck and Bottweiler trapped in the top corner of the arena, and Sir Killalot got his lance under the back of Demon Duck and lifted it, ripping the armour loose. Demon Duck fell off the lance and reversed away, but Sir Killalot went after it, lifting up the armour again, lifting the robot up and spinning, tipping the competitor onto its side. Sir Killalot then got his lance into Demon Duck's internals and spun it around. However, because Soc'Em was immobilised after it got caught on the arena side wall, and Bottweiler had broken down, Demon Duck went through to the final.

Sir Killalot picks up Berserk and drags it away from Shunt

In the Super Showdown, Berserk got its forklift under Shunt, lifting him up and pushing him against the arena wall. Sir Killalot intervened, pushing the two apart, and spearing the back of Berserk on the end of his lance. Sir Killalot lifted it up and carried it away, taking it to the flame pit and holding it over the flames.

"Now that's a good mighty heave-ho on Shunt and Killalot didn't like it! Trying to grip there, the forklift front of Berserk, lifts it into the air and getting revenge here on behalf of the House Robots!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Berserk and pulls it away from Shunt

Sir Killalot took Berserk off the flames and dropped it, and it rejoined the battle, but it later broke down. As it was being axed by Shunt, Sir Killalot got his lance underneath and lifted it, pushing it onto the flame pit.

All of the competitors decided to take on the House Robots in the Internet Insurrection, but curiously, Sir Killalot stayed at the back and did not get involved as Shunt, Dead Metal and Matilda fought with the competitors, only coming out for a little push on Bodyhammer.

"Matilda and Killalot, all the House Robots getting involved! "Oh no!" he says, "Oh no!"! Well it was your decision, you're on your back, now take the punishment son!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot flips Mortis over

Sir Killalot flips Mortis over

Sir Killalot holds Mortis over the flames

Mortis took on the House Robots in the second Judgement Day after Napalm drove into the pit, so Sir Killalot intervened. Mortis was axing Matilda, but Sir Killalot drove in between the two, pushing Mortis away from his fellow House Robot using his lance. He then got his lance underneath Mortis and lifted it, allowing Matilda to get underneath with her tusks. Matilda dragged Mortis around in circles, before Sir Killalot got his lance under Mortis and flipped it over. As Mortis tried to self-right, Shunt axed it and pushed it to The Sentinel, which pinned it down. Sir Killalot grabbed the front of Mortis with his claw, cutting through the armour, and carried it to the flame pit, holding it up over the flames.

Series 3[]

"Of course, no wars would be complete without the ultimate killing machine! Back with better weapons, the big daddy of them all, the mighty Sir Killalot!"
— Craig Charles introduces Sir Killalot in Heat A

Sir Killalot being introduced by Craig Charles

Sir Killalot, like the other house robots at the time, received improvements in this series. His eyes were now red, instead of white, and his steel rod gave way to his famous lance. His shoulder pads were removed in the hope that they would give the arms more room to move.

Like in Series 2, Craig Charles introduced Sir Killalot for the series by having him cut through a metal bar he was holding, at the start of Heat A.

"Imaging finding him in your laundry basket!"
— Craig Charles after Sir Killalot cuts through the metal bar

Sir Killalot skewers Forklift's Revenge

Sir Killalot pits Forklift's Revenge

Sir Killalot made his first appearance in the first battle of the series, Mace 2 vs Stinger, but was not involved in the battle. He made his first notable attack in the second battle, Suicidal Tendencies vs. Forklift's Revenge.  Suicidal Tendencies pushed Forklift’s Revenge into his CPZ, so Sir Killalot got his lance underneath and got the lance hooked under one of the chain drives, then lifted the whole robot off the ground, twisting it with the drill. Sir Killalot then took it to the arena centre, spun it around, then dropped it into the pit.

"And this is the mean and moody, menacing, Sir Killalot! Oh, look at that! This is a mere bauble, a toy, for Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Forklift's Revenge

Sir Killalot picks up and spins Red Dragon

Sir Killalot pits Red Dragon

Picking robots up and spinning them with his lance would prove to be one of Sir Killalot's favourite tricks in this series. After Red Dragon broke down in its battle with Raizer Blade, Sir Killalot got his drill lance in the front jaw and lifted the robot off the ground. As he did so, he twisted Red Dragon with the drill, then spun around with Red Dragon on the lance, before taking it to the pit and dropping it in.

"Well Red Dragon is simply tossed into the air, and will soon be finished off! Flailed around like a loose leaf in autumn, and the red leaf of autumn colours of Red Dragon will be seen no more! Into the pit of oblivion and bye-bye to you!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Red Dragon

Sir Killalot holds Sump Thing over flames

Sir Killalot drops Sumpthing into the Pit

In Heat B, he used his drill lance to pick up Sump Thing, getting the lance between the body and one of the wheels, and used the drill to turn it over and shake it about. He then kept Sump Thing speared on the end of the lance as he span around, then carried it over to the flame pit and held it over the flames, before carrying it to pit and dropping it in

"And in comes Killalot, twisting and turning that horrible lance! ...it's food for thought for Killalot! It's a mere bauble! Look at those horrible eyes, evil!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Sumpthing and carries it around

Sir Killalot turns Robocow over

Later in that same episode, Robocow broke down in its battle with General Carnage, so Sir Killalot came over, getting his lance under one of the front spikes. Using the spikes on the drill to hook the spike, he picked Robocow up, and used the drill to throw Robocow onto its back.

"Up and over . . . . no problem. 79 Kilos might as well have been 79 Grams."
— Robocow website on Sir Killalot turning it over[8]

Sir Killalot picks up and spins Shell Shock

In the battle between Sir Chromalot and Shell Shock in Heat D  , Shell Shock drove close to Sir Killalot's CPZ, and Sir Chromalot pushed it in. Sir Killalot got his lance underneath Shell Shock and lifted it up. As he did so, he hooked the wheel with one of the spikes on his lance, so as he lifted it, he span Shell Shock around on the drill, throwing it against the wall, nearly throwing it over the arena fence. Fortunately, Shell Shock landed on its wheels, though it still went on to lose the battle.

"...and Shell Shock now, pushed towards Killalot and turned up by the posh boys of Sir Chromalot and Sir Killalot! The knights combine together! Oh lovely! How posh!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot lifts Binky into the air

Binky caught on Sir Killalot's lance

Sir Killalot was able to flip robots over using just the lance. After Binky broke down in its Round 1 battle in Heat C, Sir Killalot got his lance under the snowplough, lifting the whole robot up and turning it over. However, Binky slipped off the spikes on the drill and the snowplough became caught on his lance for the rest of the battle, despite Sir Killalot dragging it back and forth.

Sir Killalot turns Overkill over

Sir Killalot rides up the overturned Overkill

In Heat J, after Overkill broke down in its battle with 101, Sir Killalot got his lance under one of the wheels and lifted the whole robot up with his lance, tossing it over onto its back. He also pushed it with his lance, then drove over it.

Sir Killalot drills through the side of General Carnage

Sir Killalot drops General Carnage to its doom

Series 3 saw some of the rare occasions in this series where Sir Killalot used the drill lance to actually drill through the armour of competitors. One example was General Carnage. After Behemoth flipped it over in Heat B, Sgt. Bash was dragging it to the pit, but lost his grip, and drove to the edge of the pit where he became stuck. Shunt rammed into the overturned General Carnage, turning it back over with his scoop. General Carnage tried to fully push Sgt. Bash into the pit. It was unable to move the House Robot, and Shunt and Sir Killalot attacked, with Shunt axing the top, and Sir Killalot used his drill on the side armour, easily ripping through it. He then picked General Carnage off the ground and carried it to the flame pit. After holding it over the flames, he took it to the pit and dropped it in.

"Ugh, right into the guts of General Carnage! Not a lot left there, a hole on the front-right corner, scratched and scarred! And now, General Carnage, about to be barbecued! Killalot, takes it towards the pit, I think. About to dump it in, finally, but oh, can he get it in there? Because Bash is slightly obstructing, I would think... no!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drills into, then picks up and carries, General Carnage

Sir Killalot holds up Aggrobot as Dead Metal cuts into it

Sir Killalot picks up Weld-Dor

After Aggrobot broke down in the Heat C final, Sir Killalot rammed into the back with his lance, pushing it against the wall and managing to puncture the back armour next to the spike cannon using his drill, then picked Aggrobot up and took it to the floor flipper. He also drilled into Weld-Dor’s front armour in Heat J after it broke down in its battle with King Buxton, then picked it up with his lance and took it to the pit.

Sir Killalot rips through Stomp's armour

Another notable moment of damage from Sir Killalot's lance came in the  Walker Battle between Miss Struts and Stomp. With the two walkers unable to attack each other, the House Robots came out of their CPZs, with Dead Metal cutting into Stomp. Sir Killalot then pushed Stomp against the arena wall, getting his lance under one of Stomps "legs" and lifting the whole robot up. Sir Killalot pulled it away from the wall, and after holding Stomp up for a time, the top of the leg was ripped off.  where Sir Killalot pinned Stomp against the wall and lifted it up by leg, ripping the top armour on the leg.

Sir Killalot pits Plunderstorm

Sir Killalot was used for a lot of "mercy killings" after competitors were immobilised across Series 3. The Pit was only open for the first two rounds, and Sir Killalot pitted robots such as Hefty, Plunderstorm and Cerberus. The Floor Flipper was introduced for Series 3, and Sir Killalot put robots such as Diotoir, Mace 2 and Scutter's Revenge onto the floor flipper.

Sir Killalot finishes off Hefty

Sir Killalot carries Mace 2 around

His lance proved useful in carrying robots to the pit or flipper. He used it to hook the tracks of Hefty and Plunderstorm and carry them to the pit, speared the flail at the back of Mace 2 and lifted it to carry it to the floor flipper, and got his lance under Diotoir's flipper, allowing him to lift it up and carry it to the floor flipper.

Sir Killalot dislodges Centurion's forks

Sir Killalot's claw also caused a lot of damage across the series. In Heat J, he used it to cut into the front of Centurion after it broke down in its battle with 101. As he did so, he knocked the front lifting forks loose.

"The Roman wars are about to come to an end here! Et tu, Killalote? Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it "in for me"!"
— Jonathan Pearce, referring to Caesar's assassination with two famous quotes, the first from Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar, the second being from the film Carry On Cleo

Sir Killalot cuts off Weld-Dor's axe

In the other Round 2 battle, Sir Killalot cut Weld-Dor's axe head off when it broke down by the arena wall.

"...oh look at Killalot! In with the pincers! Merciless! Off goes the ostrich feather. No weapons left then on Weld-Dor, and I’m sorry boys, very little hope."
— Jonathan Pearce

As he came in, Weld-Dor tried firing its axe at him, but could cause no damage. After the battle, Philippa Forrester presented the axe head back to the team.

Philippa Forrester: "The man that looks after Sir Killalot is requesting this as a trophy"
Phelim Lundy: "No chance, no chance!"
— Post-battle interview, on the axe head

Sir Killalot cuts through Panzer's track

Sir Killalot used his claw to cut through Panzer’s track in the Heat Final of Heat L. Panzer failed to start at the beginning of the battle, and Sir Killalot tried to grab the track and pull Panzer away, but the claw went straight through the track, and Evil Weevil rammed into Panzer as Sir Killalot tried to pull it away. Ironically, before the battle, Craig Charles had asked the Panzer team whether they felt their tracks were vulnerable, and asked if Sir Killalot could cut them with his claw.

"He could, but we're not going near him!"
— Richard Jones' response

Sir Killalot slices off Psychokiller's axe

Psychokiller drove straight into Sir Killalot in its Round 1 battle with Dreadnaut in Heat P, so Sir Killalot cut off its axe head.

"What are they doing? Driving straight towards Killalot, and the gleaming eyes, and the pincer! Well there goes your weapon, straight away! Ah, suicide! ... They've got no weapon now! Look at it - what a sorry looking thing it is, sticking out. It looks like...an earbud, to clean your ears out, let alone take Dreadnaut on!"
— Jonathan Pearce after Sir Killalot cut off Psychokiller's axe head

Sir Killalot damages the immobile Cerberus

In the World Championship, Sir Killalot cut through Cerberus's tail. Cerberus was flipped over by Diotoir, and as the House Robots came in, Sir Killalot grabbed Cerberus by the tail, dragging it around the arena, before pushing it to the pit and giving it one last push to finish it off. In the post-battle interview, the team noticed that Sir Killalot had cut a part out of the tail.

"I think he wanted a bit for a souvenir, he could've asked! I would have given him a piece, you know what I mean?"
— Theo Kaccoufa on the damage done to Cerberus' tail by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot holds Atlas over the flames for Shunt to attack

Sir Killalot often worked with the other House Robots whilst attacking immobilised competitors. In Heat L, he got his lance under one of Atlas's wheels and lifted the robot up, with the drill going through the side armour. He carried it over to the flame pit and held it over the flames, and Shunt came over and used his axe on the mascot, knocking the head off. Sir Killalot then span his drill around, cutting through the back of Atlas' armour, causing the robot to fall off the lance.

Sir Killalot lifts and spins Panzer

Sgt. Bash torches Panzer who is held by Sir Killalot

In the Heat Final, he speared Panzer’s side, getting the lance under the track and picked the whole robot up. Sir Killalot carried it to the arena centre and spun it around, then held it up for Sgt. Bash to toast

"The great tracks of Panzer being lifted up by Killalot. Well, those tracks alone weigh 20 kilos, and look at Killalot! Just spinning it around, as if it's a mere bauble! Nothing Richard Jones can do here, whatsoever! The torch of Bash, they can only grin and bear it!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up and spins Panzer, then holds it for Sgt. Bash

Behemoth is trapped in a CPZ by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot tries to push Sgt. Bash out of  the pit, but accidentally knocks him in

Sir Killalot also defended his fellow House Robots when competitors tried to attack them. After defeating General Carnage in Heat B, Behemoth got under the side of Dead Metal and lifted him up a little, so Sir Killalot chased after it, quickly getting behind it and ramming it into the arena wall, pinning it there.

In the same battle, Sgt. Bash became stuck on the edge of the pit, and after disposing of General Carnage, he tried to push his fellow House Robot off the pit, but accidentally knocked him into the pit.

Sometimes, Sir Killalot continued to attack robots even after they were pitted. Mace 2 pushed Weeliwako into the pit in their Round 2 battle in Heat A, but Sir Killalot used his lance to lift it out of the pit, carried it to the flame pit and held it over the flames.

"Oh, what's this?! Surely the House Robots aren't going to inflict more punishment on Weeliwako?! ... Oh no!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot lifts Weeliwako out of the pit

The pitted Orac's Revenge is attacked by the House Robots

Steg-O-Saw-Us managed to pit Orac's Revenge in Round 1 of Heat G, and the House Robots continued to attack it, with Sir Killalot drilling into the top with his lance, whilst Dead Metal cut into it with his saw, Matilda used her chainsaw and Shunt axed through the top.

Sir Killalot and Matilda attack the pitted Judge Shred

Sir Killalot also used his drill lance on Judge Shred after it was pitted by X-Terminator. Judge Shred was suspended over the pit by its rear axe and front lifters, so Sir Killalot got his lance underneath and tried to lift it out, but merely flicked it up a little. Matilda used her chainsaw on the top of Judge Shred, and Sir Killalot got his lance under the rear axe of Judge Shred a couple of times, trying to lift it, but it slipped off each time.

"That’s like being at the dentist and having the drill in your mouth!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drills into Judge Shred

Sir Killalot pulls Bumble Bot out of the pit

Sir Killalot cuts off Bumble Bot's front wheels

Particularly brutal was his treatment of Bumblebot in its battle with Ultor in Heat D. Bumblebot was limping as Ultor pushed it towards his CPZ, so Sir Killalot pushed it into the pit, but then continued to attack with his lance. He tried drilling through the top armour, but couldn't break through, so got the lance in the space for the axe at the front of the robot and lifted Bumblebot out of the pit, dropping it on its back. Shunt axed it, then pushed it back into the pit, only for Sir Killalot to pick Bumblebot up again, this time with his claw, pulling it out of the pit and carrying it over to the flame pit, cutting off some of the front wheels as he did so. However, he then picked it up again with claw, took it towards the flame pit and cut off the front wheels.

"Well maybe the weapon was some good then, it just kept it out of the pit, ultimately, so Killalot says "Well we'll do something else with you!". It's coming apart completely! Oh dear!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pulls Bumblebot out of the pit and cuts off the front wheels

Hard Cheese is bullied by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot had a number of notable battles across the series. The most notable of them was the Middleweight Melee. First, he punctured the back of Hard Cheese and lifted the whole robot up above his head, then twirled it around with his drill. Sir Killalot spun around with Hard Cheese, then dropped it on its side.

"Pick on someone your own size Killalot! This is unfair!"
— Jonathan Pearce, as Hard Cheese is picked up by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot pushes Tentoumushi and Hard Cheese against the wall

With Hard Cheese immobilised, Sir Killalot drove on top of it, then pushed it onto the flame pit. Later in the battle, he left his CPZ again and pushed Grinder and A-Kill together whilst they were fighting in the middle of the arena. All four House Robots eventually came out of their CPZs, and Sir Killalot pushed Hard Cheese towards the arena wall, pushing it into Tentoumushi and pinning it against the arena wall.

Roger Plant laid down a challenge to Sir Killalot after defeating Shrapnel in Round 1 of Heat E. The Big Cheese lifted it up and dropped it into the pit, much like Sir Killalot would often do, and after the battle, Roger Plant claimed he could defeat Sir Killalot.

Philippa Forrester: "You've taken over from Sir Killalot's job haven't you? Its usually his job dumping robots in the pit."
Roger Plant: "Well he was absent, I mean...he's not here, we'll do his job for him. When he is here, we might do his job for him - with him."
Philippa Forrester: "Oh! Fighting talk from Roger."
— Post-Shrapnel battle

The Big Cheese is lifted up by Sir Killalot

As if in retaliation, after The Big Cheese was flipped over by Chaos 2 in the Heat Final, Sir Killalot got his lance in the wheel area of The Big Cheese and held it up for Sgt. Bash to roast it. He then carried it to the floor flipper, but dropped it on wheels, so it drove away.

"And remember what Roger Plant said earlier on in the heat: he was capable of beating Sir Killalot, whose spies were out, told him, and this, I'm afraid, is what we call..."botribution". Robot style...revenge for Killalot."
— Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot drives over Grim Reaper and Big Brother

In Heat D, Sir Killalot drove over both Grim Reaper and Big Brother after Grim Reaper broke down by his CPZ, then got his lance underneath Grim Reaper and turned it over.

Sir Killalot chases Weeliwako

Sir Killalot also had a number of controversial battles across the series. In Heat A, Brimhur pushed Weeliwako into his CPZ, but Weeliwako pushed back against Brimhur, getting out of the CPZ before Sir Killalot could attack. However, Sir Killalot drove after it, holding it between his lance and claw. Weeliwako swung its spikes at the House Robot, hitting his breastplate, so Sir Killalot reversed, letting Weeliwako drive away, though he went back after Weeliwako, blocking it from attacking Brimhur using his lance. Weeliwako swung back and forth, hitting Sir Killalot's lance, but Sir Killalot kept blocking Weeliwako until he reversed away.  

"Superb driving ability [from Weeliwako] to get away from Sir Killalot, who goes off in pursuit! And has Weeliwako!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot chases Weeliwako

Raizer Blade is poked out of the Pit by Sir Killalot

In Round 2 of the same Heat, Raizer Blade drove into the pit whilst trying to pit Suicidal Tendencies, which was only working on one side. Sir Killalot lifted Raizer Blade off the edge of the pit, allowing it to continue fighting. The battle eventually went to the judges, who went for Suicidal Tendencies. This decision caused booing from some of the audience, and the Raizer Blade team were very disappointed about the decision.

Paul Hart: "We tried to push them in the pit, if we'd had just left them and drove around, we'd have won! We tried to get them in the pit, make a bit of a game of it, but we..."
Philippa Forrester: "Ended up in the pit!"
Paul Hart: "If Killalot had got us out earlier, we wouldn't have been disqualified."
Philippa Forrester: "Ah, but did Killalot mean to get you out?"
Steve Scotcher: "Yes, course he did! He's our mate!"
— Post-battle interview

Sir Killalot comes out of his CPZ and attacks Shell Shock

The Round 1 battle between Sir Chromalot and Shell Shock saw two controversial moments for Sir Killalot. First, after being picked up and dropped by the CPZ, Shell Shock accidentally turned back into the CPZ. It quickly drove away, but Sir Killalot drove after it, pinning Shell Shock down with his lance, pushing it, and lifting it up a little with his lance.

"...Knights of the Round Table, all honour and class? Are you sure? Bit of skullduggery going on here chaps! Poor old Shell Shock!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot comes out of his CPZ to attack Shell Shock

Sir Chromalot is nudged into the Pit

Later in the battle, Shell Shock's axe head broke off, and Sir Chromalot became stuck on top of it. Sir Chromalot appeared to be immobilised, as smoke rose from the top, and the House Robots closed in. Sir Chromalot was able to raise its shell and drive off the axe, but the House Robots attacked anyway, with Matilda flicking it with her tusks, and Sir Killalot pushed Sir Chromalot into the pit.

"The House Robots can't come in there, there's still life in Sir Chromalot! Oh gad, The House Robots! Goodness me! The high rollers are rolled out! But should the House Robots have got involved there?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Matilda attacks Sir Chromalot, and Sir Killalot pits it

However, the Judges ruled that Sir Chromalot was still moving, so they judged the battle up to that point. The Judges ruled in favour of Sir Chromalot, which Craig Charles and many of the audience disagreed with.

Sir Killalot lifts Abaddon and Technophobic

Occasionally, when robots became caught together, Sir Killalot would push them free. In Heat B, Abaddon became stuck on top of Technophobic's lifter, with its rotavator blades caught in Technophobic's top armour, so Sir Killalot  came out of his CPZ and used his lance to lift Abaddon up by the tail and pulled it back off of Technophobic. However, he was unable to drop Abaddon off his lance, so Sgt. Bash had to push it free.  

Sir Killalot lifts Corporal Punishment off of Ally Gator as battle ends

Sir Killalot used his lance when Corporal Punishment was stuck on Ally Gator in Heat H. Matilda had tried and failed to push Corporal Punishment off, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ, getting his lance at the side of Corporal Punishment and trying to lift it. However, Sir Killalot failed to get the lance underneath, so it merely scratched along the side. Dead Metal pushed the two competitors, and Sir Killalot got his scoop under the front scoop of Corporal Punishment and lifted it up, but it slipped off the lance and fell back on Ally Gator. Sir Killalot reversed, then drove at the side of Corporal Punishment, trying to lift it, but failed to get the lance underneath properly, so merely lifted it up a little. After reversing, Sir Killalot made one last attempt as time ran out. This time, he managed to get the lance under the side, and got the lance under the armour as he lifted it. Sir Killalot lifted Corporal Punishment off Ally Gator, turning it and holding it in the air, then dropped it onto its back after cease was called.

"This is Killalot look, trying to flick it up, also causing damage. Bent and buckled, Corporal Punishment, spun in the air and down and out!"
— Jonathan Pearce watches the replay of Sir Killalot lifting up Corporal Punishment and tossing it over

Sir Killalot and Shunt attack the pitted Challenger 2

In Heat L, Panzer pushed Challenger 2 into the pit in their Round 2 battle, but Panzer became stuck as its front spikes were caught under Challenger 2, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ, pushing Challenger 2 off the spikes, allowing Panzer to turn away. Sir Killalot then used his claw on one of Challenger 2's rear spikes, and tried to drill through the rear armour.

"Shunt and Killalot in for the slaughter! Well, the young lads can't do anything here! They've just gotta... stand and watch their beloved bot being bashed up! Oh dear, and perforated and punctured! Teehee, it’s House Robot glee! They were bored you see! Had to do something!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot and Shunt attack the pitted Challenger 2

Sir Killalot turns Psychokiller over

Shunt was axing Psychokiller after it broke down, but his axe became stuck in the top, so Sir Killalot helped his fellow House Robot by getting his lance under Psychokiller and lifting it, freeing Shunt's axe. As he lifted Psychokiller, he turned it over.

Incidents such as these were one of the main reasons for the introduction of Refbot in the following series.

"It had been highlighted, there was a need for a robot that was seen as being unbiased, so when robots were tied together, or got stuck together … in the past the House Robots had gone in to free these robots. Now that was seen by viewers at home as being a bit confusing "Well, why is that robot being nice?", so we built Refbot."
— Chris Reynolds on the creation of Refbot

Sir Killalot slices through Dominator's armour

The Pinball event returned, as a side tournament, and Sir Killalot had freedom of the arena, like he did in Series 2. During Dominator’s run, Dominator drove into the see-saw, so Sir Killalot used his lance to push the see-saw down, pinning Dominator in place. Sir Killalot let Dominator go, but later chased after it when it got out of Sgt. Bash's semi-circle, pushing it against the multi-ball release, and Dead Metal came out of his semi-circle to grab it as well. Sir Killalot reversed, but before Dominator could get away, Sir Killalot bulldozed it into the bottom arena wall, pushing it straight into the 75 point target in doing so. Sir Killalot pinned it there and used his claw to slice through the front armour.

"Oh dear, dear dear! Imagine having your rear end pinched by Killalot! Hmm, well there's a thought!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot cuts through Dominator's arm

Sir Killalot pins Six Pac against Matilda

Sir Killalot ended Six Pac's run. Six Pac was doing well, but after nearly driving into Sgt. Bash, it quickly reversed away, driving into Matilda. Sir Killalot rushed in, pinning it against Matilda and pushing the two together, pinning Six Pac still as he pushed Matilda against the arena wall. Sir Killalot was then able to block Six Pac from escaping for the rest of its run. Six Pac tried to get away, but Sir Killalot merely pushed it against the arena wall, and Six Pac could not get away, despite managing to push Sir Killalot back just before time ran out.

"This is tremendous stuff, very impressive, and Killalot knows it and comes in for revenge! Crashing Six Pac onto the shell of Matilda! Talk about between a rock and a hard place, between Matilda and Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot blocks the 50 point target

During R.O.C.S. 2's run, Sir Killalot prevented it from Sgt. Bash's target when it tried to get past his fellow House Robot. ROCS 2 got its wedge under Sgt. Bash and tried pushing him back. Sir Killalot got behind ROCS 2, using his lance to ram it, forcing it to turn away. R.O.C.S. 2 went back at the target, but Sir Killalot blocked the way with his lance and a barrel he had pushed from the top corner, pushing R.O.C.S. 2 away from the target. R.O.C.S. 2 drove away to the other set of barrels, and Sir Killalot drove after it, bulldozing R.O.C.S. 2 into the barrels, inadvertently knocking some of them over. As R.O.C.S. 2 tried to knock over the rest of the barrels, Sir Killalot pushed it against the arena wall, and kept it pinned there until time ran out, leaving them with only 35 points, bottom of the leaderboard and the worst ever run at Pinball.

"Killalot's closing, he's behind you! Down go more barrels, it's hardly a barrel of laughs for the Sievers family so far!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot chases R.O.C.S. 2 as it goes for the barrel

Sir Killalot pushes barrel over the see-saw

Curiously, during Eye of Newt's run, Sir Killalot was driving after Eye of Newt, but when he drove into one of the barrels, he turned and drove along the see-saw, pushing the barrel along with it.

However, the Pinball also saw a couple of Sir Killalot's most embarrassing moments. Razer attacked him at the end of its run, although this was not shown on TV.[9]

Sir Killalot catches fire during Oblivion 2's Pinball run

He also caught fire during Oblivion 2's run. Oblivion 2 broke down, and Sir Killalot and Dead Metal were pushing it. Sgt. Bash came over and fired his flamethrower, but as he did so, he accidentally turned right into Sir Killalot. The flame caught Sir Killalot, who caught fire.

"Ooh, in comes Bash! Look at what Bash has done to Killalot! The flamethrower... has caught Killalot's brain alight, it seems! Oh dear, oh dear! Well, Killalot on fire! What a turn-up for the books that is! Someone's got to get into the arena and put Killalot out, he will not like being hot under the collar! Look at the grisly sight of Killalot! Brooding, angry. "What have you done to me?!" he says!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sgt. Bash accidentally sets fire to Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot roasts Robopig, only to catch fire himself

This was not the only time this series where Sir Killalot caught fire. Napalm managed to turn Robopig over in Round 2 of Heat G, and Sir Killalot bulldozed it onto the flame pit, but as he did so, he drove onto the flame pit and his internals caught fire. Cease was called as Sir Killalot backed to the arena side wall to have the fire put out.

"And I think we could have, we do - smoky bacon! And Killalot's on fire too! And that's the first time we've seen that in Robot Wars history!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot gets hot under the collar

Sir Killalot burns Pitbull

The most notable attack on Sir Killalot by a competitor in this series came in Semi-Final 1. Pitbull had been turned over by an arena spike, and Sir Killalot got his lance in its jaws, carried it over to the flame pit and held it over the flames. He began spinning around with Pitbull, and did not stop when cease was called.

""Cease!" was called because programme makers were frightened the mutt was going to come off the end of the spike and fly out of the arena."
Robot Wars Magazine[10]

Pitbull's revenge on Sir Killalot

However, when he put it back down, Pitbull kept driving, charging at Sir Killalot and ramming into his right arm a couple of times, breaking the hydraulic fuel lines, causing Sir Killalot to lose all power to his weapons[11].

"What they did was they shouted "cease" and then Sir Killalot hung us over the Flame Pit for about another thirty seconds. So I said, "fair's fair", if he can attack me after the whistle, I can attack him after the whistle!"
— Ivar Bundulis, answering Philippa Forrester's question as to why Pitbull attacked Sir Killalot after cease was called

According to Robot Wars Magazine, during one battle in Series 3, Sir Killalot's petrol tank split and caught fire.

"Luckily, the technicians were able to put out the fire and put the fire out and repair him in time for the next bout."
— Robot Wars Magazine Issue 5

On a couple of occasions, Sir Killalot was decorated in Diotoir fur. In Round 2 of Heat B, he had Diotoir fur on his helmet, and his lance was decorated with the fur in the Walker Battle between Stomp and Miss Struts. During the Pinball tournament, Sir Killalot had a clover from Diotoir on his breastplate.

Series 4[]

"Is Sir Killalot the scariest robot on Earth? A massive 280 kilos with the stomach turning drill and fearsome hydraulic claws to slice through armour plating and bisect opposition axles! The only message you’ll get from this knight of the realm is “good night”!"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces Sir Killalot in Heat A

Sir Killalot in Series 4 the CPZ with his larger claw

Sir Killalot in the House Robot introduction. Note the smaller claws

Sir Killalot returned for Series 4 with a larger set of claws, capable of grabbing whole robots and lifting them off the ground. The original, smaller set of claws were actually visible during Sir Killalot's introduction at the start of the series, and in the Round 1 battles in the War of Independence, which were filmed before the rest of the series. And his shoulder pads were refitted.

Sir Killalot grabs hold of Killerhurtz

Sir Killalot prepares to drop Darke Destroyer 2 into the pit

Whereas in the previous two series, Sir Killalot had mostly used his lance, or his lance and claw together, to lift competitors, the new larger, stronger set of claws allowed him to lift competitors off the ground as he held them. This helped him carry robots as he took them to the flame pit and dangled them over the fire, and when he carried robots to the pit, then dropped them in.

Sir Killalot throws Gravedigger

Sir Killalot spins Disc-O-Inferno

This series saw Sir Killalot perfect his spin trick, where he would grab a competitor with his claw, lift it off the ground and spin around with it before throwing it aside. He did this to competitors such as Bigger Brother, Hammer & Tong and Bulldog Breed. Sometimes, Sir Killalot would grab competitors by their weapon as he picked them up and span them, such as when he grabbed Gravedigger by the flipper, Vercingetorix by the lifter and Killerhurtz and Dominator 2 by the axe.

"Oh dear! Imagine going for a dance with Sir Killa-Hot in the deadliest of nights!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks Killerhurtz up by the axe and spins it around

Sir Killalot holds Atilla the Drum over the arena fence

Sir Killalot nearly dropped another robot out of the arena for the first time in this series. In the Southern Annihilator, Onslaught pushed Attila the Drum into Sir Killalot's CPZ, and Sir Killalot grabbed Attila the Drum's body with his claw. Sir Killalot lifted Attila the Drum up and turned around, hanging it over the fence, but he reversed and turned, and after holding Attila the Drum up for a time, he dropped it back to the arena floor. However, as he did so, Onslaught drove at Attila the Drum, and as Attila the Drum turned away, it drove straight into Sir Killalot, who grabbed it with his claw again, lifted it up and carried it around by the wall, holding it over the fence, but again, Sir Killalot dropped Attila the Drum back to the arena floor.

Sir Killalot falls forwards whilst spinning Aggrobot 2

However, Sir Killalot would sometimes overbalance forwards when he tried lifting competitors, such as when he lifted up Aggrobot 2 and spun it around in Heat O, and when he overbalanced forwards whilst trying to drop the immobile Hypno-Disc by the pit in the Grand Final. When he overbalanced forwards, he was able to use his claw arm to push himself back onto his tracks.

Atomic is crumpled by Sir Killalot

The remains of Atomic

The larger, more powerful claw was able to cause a lot of damage across the series. In the first Heat Final of the series, Chaos 2 flipped the immobile Atomic into his CPZ, and Sir Killalot cut through the top frame with the greatest of ease, then grabbed the back, crumpling the rear armour as if it was paper.

"Goodness me, look at that - just slicing through metal. It's grizzly to watch. Ooh, crumpling. I was going to say creasing, but it's sort of folding, destroying, buckling, absolutely wrecking..."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot damages Atomic

Sir Killalot cuts off Iron-Awe's axe in Round 2 of Heat D

Sir Killalot snaps off Iron-Awe's axe

Sir Killalot cut Iron-Awe's axe head off twice, first in Round 2 of Heat D, then later in Round 1 of the Celebrity Special. After being immobilised in its battle with Steg 2, Sir Killalot grabbed the wooden axe handle and cut through it, and after Iron-Awe was immobilised in its battle with Pussycat, Sir Killalot cut through the axe handle whilst it burnt on the flame pit.

"Killalot exacts revenge, and Iron-Awe's weapon goes! Snapped off like some flower stalk, there!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot cuts off Iron-Awe's axe in Round 2 of Heat D

Sir Killalot crumples Berserk 2

Sir Killalot pits Berserk 2. Note the damage done to the side armour

In Heat F, Tornado rammed Berserk 2 into the arena wall, where it was immobilised. Sir Killalot came over and punctured the side with his claw, then sliced through the armour. He then grabbed Berserk 2, carried it to the flame pit and held it over the flames, before taking it to the pit and dropping it in.

"Tattered and torn, like its dreams!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pits the badly damaged Berserk 2

Sir Killalot cuts into the side of Kronic the Wedgehog

In the final of Heat G, Dead Metal was attacking the immobile Kronic the Wedgehog, and Sir Killalot also attacked. He punctured the side with the bottom half of his claw, then lifted Kronic the Wedgehog off the ground as Dead Metal continued attacking. Sir Killalot then closed his claw and lifted it free, causing a huge rip in the side.

Sir Killalot grabs the back of Eric

In Round 2 of Heat I, Eric fought Small Torque, and won after Small Torque caught fire, but Sir Killalot grabbed the side of Eric, bending the armour and leaving it unable to drive on one side. Sir Killalot then bulldozed it into the centre of the arena.

"We nearly came a cropper because after we got chomped by Killalot, the right-hand wheel wouldn't drive, because the bent bodywork had got bent into it. But by then it was all over!"
— Mike Hammerton of the Eric team explains the damage done by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot attacks Hammer & Tong

The House Robots decimate Hammer & Tong

Sir Killalot cut through both sides of Hammer & Tong in Round 2 of Heat J, after it was immobilised in its battle with Stinger. Sir Killalot grabbed the left side with his claw, crumpling the armour as he picked it up and took it to the centre of the arena, where he span Hammer & Tong around and threw it aside. Shunt and Sgt. Bash attacked it, and Sir Killalot got at the other side of Hammer & Tong and grabbed it with the claw, crumpling the armour, knocking the top armour loose, then pushed it to the floor flipper.

"Look at that! Crumpling, crushing, formidable force, from Killalot! And Hammer & Tong, all that work that's gone into that robot! Such a shame!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Hammer & Tong

Spawn of Scutter pushes Vercingetorix into Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot's new claw also immobilised Vercingetorix in its Round 2 battle with Spawn of Scutter in Heat L. Spawn of Scutter pushed Vercingetorix into him in the CPZ, and he pushed Vercingetorix against the wall and grabbed the side with his claw, puncturing the Lexan armour as he lifted it up, jamming one of the tracks and immobilising it.

"Killalot can grapple with Vercingetorix! And claw away at the tracks of Vercingetorix, and cause major problems there! Oh look, it's buckled on the side! Now I wonder if Vercingetorix has really been impaired! ... Killalot, 280 kilos of machine! Literally can bisect  opponents!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot cuts into the side of Vercingetorix

Sir Killalot breaks the top panel of The Steel Avenger

When The Steel Avenger was turned over by Wild Thing in the Heat M Final, Sir Killalot grabbed the top of the robot with his claw, breaking one of the top polycarbonate panels loose.

Sir Killalot rips the back of Aggrobot 2

After S.M.I.D.S.Y. defeated Aggrobot 2 in Heat O, Sir Killalot grabbed the back of Aggrobot 2 and crushed through it as if it was paper. As he pulled back, he almost ripped the rear armour off entirely.

"Look at that carnage! Stuffing being ripped out of Aggrobot, quite literally! ... It's tattered and torn. Sliced, diced, no luck with the throw of the dice either, for Aggrobot today."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot cuts into the back of Aggrobot 2

Sir Killalot damages Spikasaurus

The claw also helped to separate robots when stuck together. In the Northern Annihilator, Spikasaurus got its spikes stuck in the back of Killerhurtz. Sir Killalot grabbed the front of Spikasaurus and crushed the armour, then used his claw to separate the two.

"Spikasaurus needs to stay out of danger because look at this, the claw of Killalot! I wonder if Spikasaurus CAN free itself from Killerhurtz, or if the spike has embedded itself so deeply into the back of Killerhurtz they can't get away! Well Killalot could have a remedy for that - I'll cut your spike off! That claw can cut through virtually anything!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot uses his claw to separate Spikasaurus and Killerhurtz

Sir Killalot spears Robochicken with his lance

Although the claw became Sir Killalot's main weapon from this series onwards, he still did use the lance occasionally. In the Heat B battle between Robochicken and Pussycat, Sir Killalot speared Robochicken with his lance, getting the lance in a hole in the front that Pussycat had cut, and used the lance to hold Robochicken as he pushed it to the floor flipper

"In towards Killalot, ooh, that won't help really, will it? Got a great pair of... shears, if you like, to do the carving, has Killalot, and the lance as well! Go on, give it a bit of the lance! We like chicken kebab on the programme!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pushes Robochicken

An immobile Iron-Awe picked up by Sir Killalot

Iron-Awe is left in the grasp of Sir Killalot

In Round 1 of Heat D, Iron-Awe broke down by the pit. When the pit opened, Sir Killalot got his lance in the front of Iron-Awe, just below the axe, and used it to lift Iron-Awe up, also turning it over. He then pulled it away from the pit, and began spinning around with it, tossing it aside.

Sir Killalot lifts Tiberius up

Sir Killalot uses his lance to right Matilda

In Heat K, Tiberius became stuck in forward drive, and when Matilda pushed it away from the wall, it was spinning around in circles. Sir Killalot caught it, getting his lance under the crusher, and used the crusher to lift Tiberius off the ground, then carry it to the pit.

When Gemini flipped Matilda over in Round 1 of the Celebrity Special, Sir Killalot used his lance to lift the fellow House Robot back onto her wheels.

Medusa 2000 is pitted by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot carries Dominator 2 to the floor flipper

Sir Killalot's main role was performing the arena duties on beaten robots, and he was used for this more than any of the other House Robots. His first notable appearance of the Series came in Round 2 of Heat A, having been used in the two Round 1 battles, but was not involved in either of them. When Medusa 2000 was immobilised, he grabbed it with his claw, carried it to the pit and dropped it in. He would also pit over 20 other competitors across the series, including King B3 and Plunderbird 4, often after holding them over the flame pit before carrying them to the pit and dropping them in, which he did to competitors such as Killertron, Bigger Brother and MouseTrap. The Floor Flipper was also used more that it had been in Series 3, where it was only used from the Heat Final onwards, and Sir Killalot carried robots such as Atomic and Terror-Bull to the Floor Flipper

He was particularly busy in this regard during the Celebrity Special, where he pitted four of the seven beaten robots, and one half of Gemini. The only exceptions being Killertron (which lost on a judges decision), and Diotoir, which was pushed into the pit by Shunt.

Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash torch Bigger Brother

Sir Killalot picks up Scorpion for Sgt. Bash to toast

Sir Killalot also held competitors up for Sgt. Bash to toast, such as Scorpion and Bigger Brother. In Heat I, Sir Killalot held Bigger Brother over the flame pit after it was flipped over by Bulldog Breed 2, and Sgt. Bash fired its flamethrower at it as well.

After Scorpion was toppled over in Round 1 of Heat M, Sgt. Bash gripped the tail in his pincer. Sir Killalot gripped the back of Scorpion with his claw and pulled it away, causing the top of the tail to be ripped off. Sir Killalot then held it up whilst Sgt. Bash roasted it with his flamethrower.

"They [the Scorpion team] would also like to thank John's wife Pip, she let them design and build Scorpion on the dining room table. She had to delay cooking cheese on toast, instead she has "Scorpion rarebit", about to be dumped into the pit by Sir Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot carries Scorpion around the arena, whilst Bash attacks Scorpion with his flamethrower

Sir Killalot and Sgt Bash crumple the underbelly of Judge Shred 2

After Behemoth defeated Judge Shred 2 in Round 2 of Heat N, Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash both crushed into it together, Sir Killalot using his claw, Sgt. Bash using his front pincer. Both of them punctured the base.

"And all of a sudden, Judge Shred 2 looks minuscule doesn't it? Weak and puny, in the presence of the House Robots."
— Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot cautiously approaches the spinning War Hog

Dreadnaut XP-1 is attacked by Killalot.

Sir Killalot had a number of notable battles across the series. One of them was the second Round 1 melee from Heat G. War Hog had broken down, but its spinner was still working, so Sir Killalot had to be very careful as he approached it. He used his claw to push War Hog away from the wall, then drove into War Hog to stop it spinning. However, as the other House Robots attacked War Hog, Sir Killalot picked up Dreadnaut XP-1 with his claw and span it around, causing the top to fall off, then threw it aside.

"What's Killalot doing, he's taken on Dreadnaut! Now that is bang out of order, Killalot! Dreadnaut was okay, still in the fight. The House Robot should not have taken him on, and they've deshelled the Dreadnaut!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks the victorious Dreadnaut

The House Robots pit Bigger Brother

Sgt. Bash became stuck when he tried to pit Bigger Brother in Heat J. After Bulldog Breed 2 flipped it over and Bigger Brother was unable to self-right, Sgt. Bash grabbed it in his pincer and pulled it to the pit, but as he tried to drop it into the pit, Bigger Brother was stuck on the end of the pincer, with Sgt. Bash unable to drop Bigger Brother in or drive away to try again. Sir Killalot came over, grabbed Bigger Brother and pulled it off Sgt. Bash's pincer, dropping it by the pit. Sir Killalot got his pincer around Bigger Brother and prepared to push it in, but suddenly stopped, so Shunt came over, pushing Bigger Brother out of Sir Killalot's claw and into the pit.

"But Joe, cheerio! Oh no! It's still in there, teetering on the edge of the abyss! Surely not with Killalot... no! Shunt, the coup de grace!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sgt. Bash and Sir Killalot fail to pit Bigger Brother

Sir Killalot pulls Raizer Blade away from Shunt's axe

In the Heat Final of Heat P, Sir Killalot grabbed the immobile Raizer Blade and tried spinning with it, but Sgt. Bash was too close, so Sir Killalot accidentally hit him with Raizer Blade. Sgt. Bash drove away, and Sir Killalot started spinning again. Later in the battle,  Shunt's axe became stuck in the top of Raizer Blade, so Sir Killalot helped free Raizer Blade. He grabbed Raizer Blade, and tried pushing it, but Shunt still couldn't pull free his axe, until Sir Killalot pulled Shunt away.

Sir Killalot intervenes as Razer attacks Matilda

In the Final of the Southern Annihilator, Razer began crushing the back of Matilda after defeating Onslaught, then pulled her onto a flame jet. Sir Killalot came over whilst Razer was attacking Matilda, but instead of preventing Razer from attacking his fellow House Robot, Sir Killalot held back.

"Tildy, what's happened to you dear?! Call on all your friends, the House Robots! Killalot, do the gallant thing, take on Razer! Onslaught's long been forgotten! Matilda, Killalot! You're a knight of the realm sir! Get in sir, and protect your Tildy! "No sir! No such fear" We'll let bear the brunt of the attack of Razer!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Razer crushes Matilda and Sir Killalot fails to intervene!

Sir Killalot, Sgt. Bash and Razer push Matilda to the flame pit

Eventually, when Razer was backing off for another attack, Sir Killalot drove in between Razer and Sir Killalot, blocking it from Matilda with his claw, forcing Razer to reverse. However, when Sir Killalot drove away, Razer went back on the attack on Matilda. Sir Killalot came over again, and Razer let go and reversed away, only to turn and drive back at Matilda. Razer attacked the side of Matilda and started pushing, but Sir Killalot drove into Razer's side. However, Sir Killalot then began helping Razer to push Matilda towards the flame pit.

"Killalot, was Killalot pushing Matilda towards the pit there everyone? I'm not too sure! The House Robots seem to be teaming up with Razer against poor old Matilda! What's going on?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot helps Razer push Matilda towards the flame pit

Sir Killalot fights back against Razer

Sgt. Bash also came over to help Sir Killalot push Matilda. When Onslaught was pitted by Dead Metal, Sir Killalot turned on Razer, using his claw to push Razer down the arena and into the wall.

"Razer have won the Southern Annihilator, and now Sir Killalot can come in for revenge! You're a little bit too late, Knight of the Realm! And the Refbot, taking one last lingering look, will this be the last we ever see of Matilda I wonder?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs Razer at the end of the battle

Chaos 2 flips Atomic on top of Sir Killalot

Very few competitors were brave enough to attack Sir Killalot in this series. In the Heat Final of Heat A, Chaos 2 was flipping Atomic towards his CPZ after it broke down, and flipped it onto his claw. However, before Sir Killalot could grab it, Chaos 2 flipped Atomic onto Sir Killalot, with it hitting him on his helmet. In retaliation, Sir Killalot left his CPZ to chase Chaos 2 away.

Vercingetorix tips Fat Boy Tin into Sir Killalot

This was not the only competitor Sir Killalot got hit on the head with in this series. In Round 1 of Heat L, Vercingetorix used its lifter to topple Fat Boy Tin by the CPZ, and Fat Boy Tin fell onto Sir Killalot's head, before slipping onto his shoulder, caught between the head and the lance, until Sir Killalot reversed.

Wheely Big Cheese attempts to flip Sir Killalot

Team Big Cheese returned with a new robot, Wheely Big Cheese, which was built to get revenge for the damage Sir Killalot inflicted to the previous entry, The Big Cheese. Roger Plant boasted he could flip Sir Killalot, which it had been designed to do, but despite driving underneath him in Round 1, Wheely Big Cheese could not lift Sir Killalot. At the start of the battle, Wheely Big Cheese ignored its two opponents and drove straight for Sir Killalot, driving to the CPZ, then driving around him as he tried to attack. Sir Killalot drove at it, getting its claw underneath, preventing Wheely Big Cheese from attacking.

"What's Wheely Big Cheese doing? Looking for revenge right from the start here! Roger Plant, ignoring the other competing robots. Is it fair to them? Is it fair to us? It is, it's lovely to see a grudge match like this!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Wheely Big Cheese takes on Sir Killalot

Wheely Big Cheese is pushed into the pit as is Prizephita MK2

Eventually, Sir Killalot let go, and Wheely Big Cheese drove away. Wheely Big Cheese would later attack Sir Killalot again, driving straight at him and getting the flipper underneath, but it could not lift the House Robot, and Dead Metal came up behind it and cut into the back. Wheely Big Cheese reversed, allowing Sir Killalot to get off the flipper, and the pit opened, Sir Killalot pushed Wheely Big Cheese into the pit. However, Wheely Big Cheese still went through as Prizephita Mk 2 had been immobilised.

"Wheely Big Cheese can toss eight hundred kilos, they tell us. Come on then, throw Killalot! Go on, throw Killalot! You can't! You can't! The pit descends. 1-0 to the House Robots, I think there, Roger Plant, don't you?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Wheely Big Cheese tries unsuccessfully to flip Sir Killalot

Panic Attack tries unsuccessfully to lift Sir Killalot

Panic Attack, another robot with a long history of attacking the House Robots, attacked Sir Killalot twice in this series. First, after it defeated Saw Point in Round 2 of Heat O, Sir Killalot picked Saw Point up, but as he was carrying it to the pit, Panic Attack got behind him and got his forks under the back.

"Panic Attack on the attack on Killalot! And Killalot will remember that, Kim Davies, you can be sure!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Panic Attack tried to lift Sir Killalot using the forks, and although it managed to lift Sir Killalot a little, causing him to overbalance as it held Saw Point, the weight proved too much for Panic Attack, lifting itself off the ground as Sir Killalot fell back to the arena floor, so it quickly lowered its forks and reversed away. However, after driving away from Sir Killalot, Panic Attack started attacking Shunt, getting its forks underneath his scoop, lifting him up and pushing him back.

Julia Reed: "You don't hold back Kim, do you? Because we saw you have a pop at Sir Killalot!"
Kim Davies: "Yeah, well the thing behind that was when he was picking up the opposition and going to the pit, he was front-heavy, so we thought maybe we could get behind him and as he was dropping it we could get him in as well!"
— Kim Davies explains his attack on Sir Killalot in Round 2 before his battle with Spawn of Scutter in the Semi-Finals

Sir Killalot grabs Panic Attack as it attacks Shunt

Sir Killalot with a broken hydraulic pipe

After defeating Spawn of Scutter in its Semi-Final battle, Panic Attack took on Shunt, getting under his side and lifting him up. Sir Killalot intervened on behalf of his fellow House Robot, grabbing the back of Panic Attack. Panic Attack turned on Sir Killalot, ramming into his side and breaking one of his hydraulic pipes.

"...and look at Panic Attack, taking on the House Robots! Taking on Shunt and Killalot didn't like it at all! Spawn of Scutter will say goodbye to their competition hopes - great battle, but I'm more worried about my pal, Killalot, I must admit. Get some sort of Robot Wars medic down there! Sort out my hero!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Panic Attack attacks Sir Killalot, then as he sees the burst pipe on Sir Killalot

The X-Terminator team would later complain that the amount of hydraulic fluid on the floor made it difficult for their robot to get any traction, contributing to their defeat against Wild Thing in the same episode.

Mortis attacks Sir Killalot

Mortis went after Sir Killalot after defeating Ghetto-bot in Round 1 of the War of Independence. Mortis charged straight at Sir Killalot, hitting his helmet with the axe repeatedly, and as Sir Killalot reversed away, Mortis chased after him, hitting the back with its axe. Mortis quickly caught up with Sir Killalot, hitting the side with the axe, and as Sir Killalot tried reversing away, Mortis drove at the other side and axed that as well.

"...and Mortis takes on Killalot! Well I tell you what, Rob Knight and Arthur Chilcott have always been great sports in Robot Wars, and they want a crack at the House Robots..."
— Jonathan Pearce as Mortis attacks Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot drives over the edge of the pit whilst carrying Tiberius

These attacks were not the only problems Sir Killalot had in this series. In Heat K, whilst using his lance to carry Tiberius to the pit, Sir Killalot drove too close to the edge, and overbalanced forwards over the edge. Fortunately for him, he managed to use his other track to turn, then balanced back down from the edge of the pit, allowing him to drop Tiberius into the pit.

Sir Killalot removes Matilda's wheel

In Round 1 of Heat O, Sir Killalot and Matilda were attacking the immobile Oblivion 2, with Matilda on one side cutting into it with her chainsaw, whilst Sir Killalot tried to use his claw to grab Oblivion 2's axe. He tried pushing Oblivion 2's axe against Matilda to help grip it, but as he tried to grab the axe, he accidentally grabbed Matilda's wheel, ripping it off. He reversed, pulling the wheel completely off.

"As Wild Thing just squeezed away, it caught Killalot's breastplate and pulled it off! So now we see a nude Killalot, which is a new for Robot Wars! Don't get too excited!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Wild Thing knocks off Sir Killalot's breastplate

The breastplate of Sir Killalot comes off

Sir Killalot is hit by Diotoir after it was thrown by the floor flipper

In the Semi-Final 2 battle between X-Terminator and Wild Thing, X-Terminator rammed Wild Thing down the arena and slammed it into Sir Killalot's CPZ. As it tried to escape, Wild Thing turned into Sir Killalot's front, knocking his breastplate off as it drove out of the CPZ. When Sir Killalot put Diotoir on the floor flipper in the Final of the Celebrity Special, it landed on its side, rolled, bounced when the flipper hit the floor, and fell onto Sir Killalot.

Sir Killalot with freedom of the arena in the Pinball Warrior Tournament

Sir Killalot guards the 75-point target in the Pinball Warrior Tournament

The Pinball Warrior tournament returned, and Sir Killalot had the freedom of the arena again, though in this series, Dead Metal occasionally took his place, with Sir Killalot guarding the 75 point target whilst Dead Metal had the freedom of the arena. Sir Killalot guarded the 75 point target for the runs of Stinger, S.M.I.D.S.Y., Razer, Banshee,  Diotoir, Firestorm 2 and Inverterbrat, whilst in the other 9, he had freedom of the arena and Dead Metal guarded the 75 point target.

Firestorm 2 gets past Sir Killalot to hit the 75 point target

Diotoir gets around Sir Killalot to hit the 75-point target

Only two competitors managed to hit the 75 point target whilst Sir Killalot was guarding it (?), Firestorm 2 and Diotoir. In both of these cases, Sir Killalot was too slow to turn to prevent the competitors reaching the target. At the end of its run, Firestorm 2 also rammed Dead Metal into Sir Killalot, knocking his breastplate loose.

Sir Killalot pushes the see-saw as Hypno-Disc tries to cross it

During Hypno-Disc's run, Sir Killalot pushed the see-saw as Hypno-Disc tried to drive over it, pushing it out of alignment and causing Hypno-Disc to drive over the side and fall off. He also pushed the ramp around during Spikasaurus' run before Spikasaurus could have a chance at driving up it.

Sir Killalot pushes Attila the Drum out of the pit

During Attila the Drum's run, Sir Killalot actually helped the competitor when it became stuck. Attila the Drum drove into one of the shallow pits, and as it was unable to get out, Sir Killalot used his claw to push it out of the pit, although it was not able to score any more points, as there were only two more seconds left.

Razer takes on Sir Killalot

Reigning Pinball champion Razer abandoned its run to attack Killalot. Razer started well, scoring points with the barrels, 50 point target and car doors, but when it went for the 75 point target, Sir Killalot blocked the way with his claw, pushing it away from the target. Razer rammed against Sir Killalot's breast plate, so Sir Killalot pushed Razer out of his area. Razer was not deterred however, and got around the side of Sir Killalot, grabbing his lance with his claw. This lifted it off the ground, and Sir Killalot span around with it, but Razer would not let go. As Sir Killalot span Razer, it hit the car door release,causing it to slip, almost ripping one of the hydraulic pipes off the side of the lance. Instead of trying to drive around Sir Killalot to hit the 75 point target, Razer grabbed the back of Sir Killalot's lance again until time ran out.

"Time is ticking down for Razer! Killalot just nudges them away, you can get some sense there of the size of Killalot! Enormous! And I think they're sacrificing points here for an attack on Killalot! They are, they're going for the hydraulic cable on Killalot! Trying to pluck away the cable! But they've ruined their chances in the Pinball Warrior challenge! Time has run out on them! They went for an attack and not for points - and why not? The crowd are there to be entertained!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Razer takes on Sir Killalot

Inverterrat falls off Sir Killalot's lance

For some runs in the Pinball Warrior tournament, the head of Inverterbrat's mascot, 'Inverterrat', was placed on Sir Killalot's lance, though it easily fell off when competitors drove into him. During 101's run, 101 charged into him instead of aiming at one of the targets, and the head fell off the lance. After Spawn of Scutter's run hit Matilda's target, Sir Killalot closed in, but Spawn of Scutter reversed straight into him, causing the head to fall off the lance. It was not present on his lance during the runs of Stinger, Bigger Brother, S.M.I.D.S.Y., King B3, Razer, Banshee, Diotoir, Gemini, Firestorm 2 and Inverterbrat.

Sir Killalot spins Splinter around. Note Kater Killer's tail attached to his back

Sir Killalot with The Steel Avenger's feather duster on his drill

Like in Series 4, Sir Killalot occasionally wore decorations taken from beaten competitors. For most of the series, he had Kater Killer's tail attached to his rear.

After The Steel Avenger's defeat, Sir Killalot kept the feather duster, which was used to decorate his lance in the Heat Final of Heat P.

Sir Killalot was not used in any of the four battles in the Tag Team Terror, making this the first episode he was absent from since his introduction.

Extreme 1[]

"Killalot is vast, massive, heavy, foreboding, ominous! Look at the horrible, evil twinkle in the eyes!"
— Jonathan Pearce on Sir Killalot during the battle between Wild Thing and Tornado

The first series of Robot Wars: Extreme saw the number of House Robots allowed in the arena during a battle (not including Refbot) reduced from four to two. This, combined with the events in Extreme 1 not being filmed in broadcast order, meant that Sir Killalot's appearances were inconstant throughout the series; some episodes saw him make many appearances, such as Episode 4 and The Second World Championship, where he was used in all but one battle. However, in other episodes, such as Episodes Episode 7, 11 and 13, he only appeared in one battle, whilst in episodes 6, 12 and 15, he did not appear in any of the battles.

Sir Killalot pits Oblark

Sir Killalot backs Fluffy onto the floor flipper

As usual, Sir Killalot's main role across the series was carrying out mercy killings on beaten competitors. He pushed robots such as Sir Chromalot into the pit, put robots such as Fluffy, MouseTrap and Thermidor 2 on the floor flipper. Sometimes, he would hold competitors on the flame pit beforehand, such as when he put Aggrobot 3 on the flame pit before taking it to the floor flipper, and when he held Oblark over the flame pit, before carrying it to the pit and dropping it in. In The Second World Championship, he put W70 onto the flipper, then after it was thrown, put NEAT Machine on the flipper.

Sir Killalot attempts to pit Major Tom

Two unusual incidents happened whilst Sir Killalot tried to dispose of beaten competitors this series. In Round 1 of the Tag Team Terror battle between Bigger Brother and Major Tom against Spawn Again and Comengetorix, Major Tom broke down. Sir Killalot pushed it to the pit, but Major Tom was too long to fit into the pit, one of the only times a competitor did not fit into the pit.

"...Robot Wars Extreme means extreme punishment for your creativity! And your work, Major Tom team, the Ryans and Joe Brown comes to a... that sort of an end, if we can get you in the pit. You're a little bit too big, actually. Lose some weight, son!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Major Tom fails to fit in

Sir Killalot carries Aggrobot 3 to the floor flipper, before Aggrobot 3 tries to drive off

Also, during the Mayhem between Aggrobot 3, Splinter and Killertron, Aggrobot 3 broke down after its lifter became stuck. Sir Killalot grabbed it, and after holding it over the flame pit, he dragged it up the arena to the floor flipper, but as Sir Killalot dropped Aggrobot 3 on the flipper, Aggrobot 3 regained mobility and tried to reverse off the flipper, but couldn't get off before the flipper fired.

Sir Killalot drops Napalm out of the arena

This series saw Sir Killalot drop competitors out of the arena for the first time. In Episode 8, during Round 1 of the Tag Team Terror, he grabbed the back of Napalm, lifted it up, and carried it all the way down the arena before dropping it over the fence.

"Sir Killalot's come in... Napalm's being crumpled and err... out of the arena, and that's the end of them!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot carries and dumps Napalm out of the arena

Sir Killalot drops Stinger out of the arena

However, the first time he ever dropped a competitor out of the arena actually happened after cease was called. In Episode 2, towards the end of the Wild Card Warriors battle between Stinger and Ajjay, Stinger accidentally reversed by his CPZ, so Sir Killalot blocked its escape and forced it into the CPZ, pinning it against the wall. He then grabbed between the wheels with his claw and lifted it up. As the battle went into the last 10 seconds, Sir Killalot carried Stinger down the arena, and although Cease was called before he could drop it over the fence, Sir Killalot kept going, driving to the wall and dropping Stinger over the fence. The judges overruled this, and judged the battle, awarding Stinger the win by split decision.

"Stinger into the CPZ, could be in trouble here though! Again Killalot, and we've seen this before when Killalot's managed to grapple hold of Stinger! They've done all the work, but it looks as if it could get tossed out of the arena here! But Killalot's got to beat the clock! The clock is ticking down, can Stinger survive? Can Stinger stay in? I think they've just stayed in! Out of the arena they go. But I think it was after time, in which case, Killalot was bang out of order!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot throws Stinger out of the arena

Sir Killalot hangs Stinger over the arena wall

This was not the only time Sir Killalot attacked Stinger in this series. In the first battle of the series, the Vengeance battle between Tornado and Stinger, Tornado pushed Stinger into his CPZ, and as Stinger tried to escape, Sir Killalot got his claw between the wheels, grabbed it and picked it up. Although Stinger was fully mobile, Sir Killalot held it over the fence, but he reversed away from the wall as he let Stinger go, dropping it back to the arena floor.

"Look at those great claws... oh yes! Got Stinger by the chassis! By the axle! Ha ho! Stinger, you're going out of the arena, or into a flame pit, or into the pit of oblivion! ... No! Ooh, you are so lucky Stinger! And the Stinger fan club can breathe a huge sigh of relief."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs Stinger and holds it over the arena wall, before dropping it back in the arena

Sir Killalot holds Stinger, before having to let it go

Later, when Stinger fought Behemoth for the Challenge Belt, Behemoth pushed Stinger down to the bottom of the arena, then forced it into Sir Killalot's CPZ as it tried spinning. Sir Killalot pushed Behemoth away from the CPZ, but Stinger failed to get away, as Sir Killalot blocked it with his claw. Sir Killalot reversed, but Stinger failed to get out of the CPZ fast enough, so Sir Killalot got his claw between the wheels and held Stinger up. Behemoth opened the pit, and Sir Killalot carried Stinger out of the CPZ in the direction of the pit, only to stop and drop Stinger back to the arena floor.

"It's dallied too long in the CPZ, and that means that Sir Killalot once again can grapple at the very axle of Stinger! ... I don't think Stinger's been immobilised yet, so Killalot couldn't push Stinger down into the pit. No, he's had to let him go!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Stinger, but has to drop it

These attacks prompted Stinger team member Karl Skinner and Craig Charles to question what Sir Killalot had against them during the post-battle interview of the Wild Card Warriors battle with Ajjay.

Karl Skinner: "Killalot had it in for us, didn't he?"
Craig Charles: "What has Killalot got against you?"
Karl Skinner: "I don't know! We didn't actually go into the CPZ, so he was a bit out of order!"
— after Stinger's Wild Card Warriors battle

Wild Thing is pinched by Sir Killalot

The weight limit for competitors was increased to 100kg for this series, so most robots were strong enough to resist Sir Killalot's claw. For example, in the Challenge Belt battle between Tornado and Wild Thing, Sir Killalot grabbed Wild Thing and Tornado during the battle, but failed to damage either of them. The claw was used more for grabbing competitors and lifting them up rather than cutting off parts of competitors throughout the series

Sir Killalot crushes The Steel Avenger's base

There were some exceptions. During the Challenge Belt battle between The Steel Avenger and Behemoth, Behemoth flipped The Steel Avenger over in a CPZ, leaving it stuck on its back. Sir Killalot grabbed it, crushing a large hole in the baseplate and peeling away the armour by one of the front wheels.

Sir Killalot breaks Oblark's front

Whirlpool 70 is crumpled by Sir Killalot

During the Forces Special, Sir Killalot was carrying Oblark to the pit, and crushed the front, breaking off one of the front armour panels.

During Round 1 of The Second World Championship, Sir Killalot got his claw inside the spinning frame of Whirlpool 70 and crushed the body, but struggled to get the claw free.

"W70 has strayed in, and the old pool cleaner is being taken to the cleaners there by Sir Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs W70

Extreme 1 saw the introduction of Refbot's card system, and Sir Killalot was one of the many House Robots to receive a card this series. In the first episode of the series, during the All-Stars battle between Wheely Big Cheese and Diotoir, Wheely Big Cheese quickly flipped Diotoir over, but as Refbot came over to count Diotoir out, Sir Killalot came out to attack before Refbot had started the count counted Diotoir out, so Refbot gave him a yellow card. Making it the first time a House Robot was yellow carded.

"There's the Refbot coming in, and Killalot as well! Now that's out of order Killalot, because Diotoir was not in a CPZ, it had not yet been counted out! Killalot should not be doing this, Refbot get in there! And that's a yellow card! A yellow card for Killalot. A new feature of this series of Extreme."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Diotoir, then receives a yellow card

Once it was counted out, Sir Killalot pushed it away from the wall, and started pushing it to the arena centre, but as he did so, he accidentally righted it. He tried pushing it on the flame pit, but Diotoir turned and drove straight off before the fur could catch fire.

"Now Killalot can have his chance, but the House Robots for me, have been getting away with far too much for far too long, and that's why we've said to Refbot "Get in there, and use your authority on Killalot!" Well, rather you than me Refbot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Diotoir

Sir Killalot also received a warning from Refbot, albeit not a card, in the All-Stars battle between Firestorm 3 and Panic Attack. Firestorm 3 had flipped Panic Attack against the top arena wall, and Sir Killalot came out to attack with his claw, but Refbot gave him a warning to return to his CPZ, as he had not started his count.

"They'll go no further here, if Sir Killalot has his way! And the crowd want the end of 3 Stegs 2 Heaven! ... Look at the great jaws there, right in behind the wheel of 3 Stegs 2 Heaven!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up 3 Stegs 2 Heaven and holds it over the flame pit

Sir Killalot grabs 3 Stegs 2 Heaven

However, on other occasions, Sir Killalot attacked competitors without waiting for Refbot to count them out, and he did not receive a card. In the All-Stars battle between Tornado and 3 Stegs 2 Heaven, Tornado pushed 3 Stegs 2 Heaven into an empty CPZ, and Sir Killalot came over. As 3 Stegs 2 Heaven was limping, Sir Killalot grabbed it and pushed it across the arena, where he held it over the flame pit, even though it had not been counted out. Sir Killalot let 3 Stegs 2 Heaven go, only for Tornado to ram it into another CPZ, and Dead Metal grabbed it. Although 3 Stegs 2 Heaven had not been counted out, Sir Killalot and Dead Metal treated it as if it had, with Dead Metal putting it on the floor flipper, and Sir Killalot grabbing it and spinning it around after it was thrown. However, the battle still had to go to the Judges as 3 Stegs 2 Heaven was not counted out.

"The crumpling, cold steel effect of Killalot's great crushing jaws! And 3 Stegs 2 Heaven is spun, flicked."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot spins 3 Stegs 2 Heaven around

Sir Killalot unfairly pits Killertron

Later in the same episode, Sir Killalot controversially disposed of Killertron in its Mayhem battle against Splinter and Aggrobot, despite the fact it hadn't been counted out, and it was not even in a CPZ. Sir Killalot pushed Killertron around, got his claw under Killertron's wheels and lifted it up. He then proceeded to carry it to the pit, and dropped it in, much to the disapproval of Jonathan Pearce. However, Killertron appeared not to be moving when Sir Killalot picked it up. The Judges made no stand, and Splinter was declared the winner.

"Killalot has a grip! He should dump Killertron to the floor! He shouldn't be picking it  up, because Killertron was still mobile, and still fighting....but it's in the pit! And Killertron has gone out! Sir Killalot was in a hurry to get it over and done with"
— Jonathan Pearce protests as Sir Killalot carries Killertron to the pit and drops it in

Sir Killalot picks up Napalm

Sir Killalot pushes Sir Chromalot into the pit

He also picked up Napalm 2 and carried it to the arena fence and dropped it out without waiting for Refbot to count it out during Round 1 of the Tag Team Terror. Napalm was being grabbed by Suicidal Tendencies and axed by Shunt, but managed to turn away and drive to the top of the arena. Sir Killalot drove after it, grabbed the back and proceeded to take it to the bottom of the arena and drop it out. Napalm 2 did appear to stop at the top of the arena. Later in the same battle, Sir Chromalot was driving slower and slower, before coming to a stop, due to its batteries dying. Sir Killalot hit the pit release as it was slowing down, then bulldozed it into the pit without waiting for Refbot to count it out.

"Look at the difference between Killalot and Sir Chromalot... And Sir Chromalot - binned!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pushes Sir Chromalot into the pit

Mega Morg is tipped over by Sir Killalot

Mega Morg is dangled over the pit by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot also broke the rules during the Vengeance battle between Mega Morg and Ming 3, but Refbot did not intervene. Ming 3 and Mega Morg were fighting near an empty CPZ at the bottom of the arena, and Sir Killalot came over to the CPZ. Ming 3 tried to drive around Sir Killalot, but drove into the wall. Despite the fact Ming 3 was in the CPZ, whilst Mega Morg was just outside, barely touching the red warning line, Sir Killalot attacked Mega Morg, using his claw to lift Mega Morg up on its side and pushed it against the wall, leaving it leaning against the wall. He then pushed it so it was tipped onto its side, before grabbing the front with his claw and pulling it away. Instead of just dropping it to the floor and letting it carry on the battle, Sir Killalot dragged it up the arena, carrying it over the open pit, then took it down to the other CPZ at the bottom of the arena, before finally letting it go.

Sir Killalot and Suicidal Tendencies separate The Steel Avenger and Sir Chromalot

Although Refbot had been introduced in the previous series partially to separate robots that were caught together, Sir Killalot was occasionally used to separate competitors. One example came in Round 1 of the Tag Team Terror, where Sir Chromalot lifted up The Steel Avenger, and it fell on top of the wheel rim, but Sir Chromalot could not move with The Steel Avenger on top of it, and The Steel Avenger could not get down, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ to push the two, whilst Suicidal Tendencies pushed The Steel Avenger free.

Sir Killalot pushes Ming 3 and Mega Morg apart

In the Vengeance battle between Mega Morg and Ming 3, Ming 3 got underneath the side of Mega Morg with its front wedge, but Mega Morg slipped off Ming 3's side so it was leaning against Ming 3. Mega Morg could not get down, and Ming 3 could not drive away, nor use its crusher to push Mega Morg off, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ to separate the two, pushing Ming 3 out from under Mega Morg with his claw.

Beef-Cake is crushed by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot had a number of notable battles across the series. Possibly the most notable was the Featherweight Championship. After defeating RC Warrior, Beef-Cake took on Shunt, driving at his plough, but Shunt charged into it, turning it over with his plough. He then pushed it into the path of Sir Killalot, who drove over it. Shunt then attacked Beef-Cake with his axe, before Sir Killalot tried to pick it up with the claw, but Beef-Cake was too small, and slipped through Killalot's grasp.

"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!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Beef-Cake is attacked by the House Robots

The destruction of Beef-Cake prompted booing from the audience, vocal disagreement from Craig Charles, Jonathan Pearce, and especially the Beef-Cake team. Despite Sir Killalot driving over it,the team were surprised to find the body was relatively undamaged.

"I did have a little pop at Shunt in the last couple of minutes for some comedy David/Goliath audience pleasing action causing him to retaliate and flip me over. It definitely got a bit out of hand after that. It was the first time I'd seen destruction of a winning bot even though I knew featherweights were considered slightly disposable. At the end Killalot tried to cut it in half, luckily it fell through at the right time. Although fairly p***** off and upset, I took it with a bit of salt and got on with it after surprisingly finding the rc chassis inside came out totally fine after taking 400odd kg going over it."
— Tommy Winkworth of the Beef-Cake team

Sir Killalot takes Sub-Version from the immobile Shunt

Sir Killalot nudges Sub-Version into the pit with his lance

In Round 2 of the Forces special, Sub-Version was counted out, and Shunt axed it and put it on the flipper. After it was thrown, Shunt attacked it again, but suddenly broke down. Sir Killalot had to pull Sub-Version away and drop it by the pit, gently prodding it in with his lance spinning. This was one of the only times he used his lance in this series.

Bigger Brother attempts to flip Sir Killalot

Comengetorix axes Sir Killalot

The Vengeance battle between Comengetorix and Bigger Brother saw both competitors take on the House Robots. Bigger Brother flipped Sgt. Bash early on in the battle, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ to chase after Bigger Brother. Bigger Brother drove at the front of Sir Killalot and tried to flip him, managing to lift his tracks off the floor, but Sir Killalot was too heavy to hold up for very long, so Bigger Brother had to drop him, allowing Sir Killalot to push it up the arena.

"Look at the difference in size! Sir Killalot is huge! Trundling over Bigger Brother, you ain't gonna flip that young Joe!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot traps Comengetorix and Bigger Brother in CPZ

Bigger Brother escaped and Sir Killalot went to the CPZ, but Comengetorix and Bigger Brother attacked, with Comengetorix firing its axe at Sir Killalot, which he merely shrugged off. Bigger Brother getting it flipper under Sir Killalot's claw arm. and as Sir Killalot turned to push Bigger Brother into the CPZ, Comengetorix fired its axe three times, getting the axe into Sir Killalot's body each time.

"Spinning with Comengetorix to have a go at Killalot, they're combining, are they? Hang on, this is a Vengeance grudge match. No no no no no, you're not supposed to be having a go at OURS, you're supposed to be having a go at THEIRS!"
— Jonathan Pearce as the "rivals" team up

Sir Killalot puts Bigger Brother into the pit with Comengetorix

Sir Killalot reversed against Comengetorix, allowing Bigger Brother to escape the CPZ. Sir Killalot drove after Comengetorix, forcing it back into the CPZ and pinning it against the wall. Comengetorix fired its axe against Sir Killalot, hitting his front, but did no damage. Comengetorix tried pushing past Sir Killalot, but Sir Killalot soon regained control, pinning Comengetorix down using his lance and pushing it back against the wall.  After pinning the two competitors in the corner, Sir Killalot let them go, pushing them out as they escaped the CPZ. The two fought each other, with Bigger Brother eventually pitting Comengetorix, but suddenly Sir Killalot charged out of his CPZ, grabbed Bigger Brother with his claw and dropped it into the pit as well. After the battle, the teams admitted the battle was merely a ploy to attack the House Robots.

"This was a ploy. We haven't got a grudge against each other, it was just to get Killalot. We wanted a crack at Killalot!"
— Alistair Curtis-Horsefall after the battle

The Steel Avenger axes Sir Killalot. Note that the lights for his eyes have fallen out

This battle was not the only time in this series that competitors were brave enough to attack Sir Killalot. In the Challenge Belt battle between Behemoth and The Steel Avenger, Behemoth rammed The Steel Avenger into the CPZ, and Sir Killalot came into the CPZ, but instead of trying to get away, The Steel Avenger drove straight at Sir Killalot, hitting him with the axe and knocking his eye lights out, before turning and driving around Sir Killalot before he could attack.

"...and The Steel Avenger, taking on Sir Killalot, hardly wise! Foolhardy, jetting away!"
— Jonathan Pearce as The Steel Avenger knocks Sir Killalot's lights out, then drives away

Behemoth lifts Sir Killalot as it attacks The Steel Avenger

Sir Killalot bulldozed The Steel Avenger out of the CPZ, and it continued to fight Behemoth, but later in the battle, Behemoth rammed The Steel Avenger into the CPZ again and flipped it over against the wall. Sir Killalot came over, grabbing The Steel Avenger with his claw, but as he pushed it out of the CPZ, Behemoth got behind Sir Killalot and lifted him, tipping him forwards.

"Oh look at Behemoth, trying to tip Sir Killalot over here! A well timed attack there, by Anthony Pritchard!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Behemoth lifts the back of Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot managed to push himself down with his claw arm, and Behemoth drove at Sir Killalot's side, getting the scoop under the claw arm, but couldn't lift it, and Sir Killalot chased it out of the CPZ.

Craig Charles: "...what is it, trying to have a go at Killalot! You know he's got a long memory?!"
Anthony Pritchard: "Yeah, well we were actually trying to rescue Steel Avenger, 'cause if you look we actually flipped him over so that he could get away from him."
Craig Charles: "I just thought you flipped him over so you could flip them back over again, I thought you were playing with them."
Anthony Pritchard: "No, it was actually trying to rescue him, because Sir Killalot does damage, so we was trying to rescue him!"
— Anthony Pritchard explains his motives for attacking Sir Killalot after the battle

Pussycat cuts Sir Killalot's hydraulic fuel line

Sir Killalot on fire

The most notable attack on Sir Killalot by a competitor in this series came in the All-Stars battle between Pussycat and Tornado. Pussycat drove into Sir Killalot's CPZ, and used its cutting disc on Sir Killalot's front, cutting the breastplate, and also cutting one of Sir Killalot's hydraulic fuel lines. Later on in the battle, Pussycat became stuck on its side on a flame jet, and as one of its wheels had been ripped off by an angle grinder earlier in the battle, Pussycat could not roll back onto its wheels, or drive away. Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ to push Pussycat away, but because of the leaking hydraulic fuel, he caught fire, which spread into a large fire throughout his internals. Refbot tried to put it out with his CO2 extinguisher, but despite dampening the flames a little, the fire kept burning and spread again, forcing Sir Killalot to drive onto one of the CO2 vents to put out the fire.

"...and Killalot's on fire! Killalot is on fire! The Refbot's in there! I don't think we've seen that, the Refbot using the fire extinguisher! Oh Killalot, what's happened to you mate? Are we sympathetic? Well I am, because he lives near me, and you don't want to rough Sir Killalot up, I can tell you! Oh dear! Ashes to ashes Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot burns

According to Ian Gear, Comengetorix knocked of Sir Killalot's head with its axe during Extreme 1, but this was not shown in the televised broadcast.[12]

Series 5[]

"Sir Killalot is arguably the scariest robot on Earth. He derives his power from a prototype cold fusion cell, weighs in at a massive 280kg and stands 1.3m high. At 1.8 metres per second, he's slower than the other house robots, but one look at him and you'll quickly get the message - mess with Sir Killalot at your peril!"
— The Series 5 programme on Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot cuts a metal bar in the House Robot introduction

Sir Killalot picks up 8645T

Sir Killalot was present in every episode of Series 5, although the fact that only two House Robots (apart from Refbot) were used in each battle meant he was present in 2 or 3 battles per episode for most episodes. However, he was used in every battle of Heat B, and all but one battle in Heat C. The only exception was Heat E, where he only appeared in one battle. His first appearance in this series came in the third Round 1 battle of Heat A, between 8645T and T-Bone, but he was not involved in the battle. As in Extreme 1, Sir Killalot's claws were used more for picking up robots, as opposed to earlier series where he would cut robots with the claw, and lift robots with the lance, or lance and claw together.

Sir Killalot carries General Carnage 2 to its doom

Gravedigger is "cremated" on the Flame Pit by Sir Killalot

As usual, Sir Killalot's main role across the series was to perform "mercy killings" on beaten competitors. He put robots such as Kan-Opener, Terrorhurtz and Firestorm 3 on the floor flipper, dropped competitors such as Bee-Capitator and Atomic 2 into the pit, and held robots including Gravedigger over the flame pit. In some cases, he carried beaten competitors around the arena, and inflicted multiple punishments on them; for example, he put Kan-Opener on the floor flipper, and after it was thrown, he picked it up and span with it, before pushing it into the pit. He also put General Carnage 2 on the flipper, before dropping it into the pit.

Sir Killalot prepares to drop Ruf Ruf Dougal out of the arena

Sir Killalot spins Bee Capitator, scattering pieces of burning fur

He also continued picking robots up and dropping them out of the arena, albeit only once this series, when he picked up Ruf Ruf Dougal in Round 1 of Heat D and dropped it over the fence. His spin trick of picking robots up with his claw and spinning with them was seen regularly, such as with Hydra.

"Spinning, whirling, we love to see him do that! We didn't know Sir Killalot was a mean disco dancer in his part time!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up and spins Atomic 2

One notable example was Bee-Captitator, where he held it over the flame pit, and when the fur was on fire, he spun around with it, scattering pieces of burning fur across the arena.

"Over the flame pit, the fur's on fire, Sir Killalot twirls the bee and dumps it!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot spins Bee-Captitator

Sir Killalot lifts The Tartan Terror over with his claw

Sir Killalot puts The Tartan Terror on the floor flipper for the third time

Sir Killalot was particularly cruel to a number of the robots that fell in Round 1. In Heat A, The Tartan Terror stopped moving during its battle with The Steel Avenger, and Shunt pushed it against the arena wall. Sir Killalot got his claw underneath and lifted it up, turning it over, propped up against the wall. He then used his lance to nudge The Tartan Terror, causing it to fall back onto its wheels. After Refbot counted it out, Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw again and pulled it away from the wall, then lifted it, turning it onto its side.  Shunt pushed it over, and Sir Killalot pushed it onto the flame pit, where the kilt caught fire, and the wooden frame burnt. Shunt pushed The Tartan Terror onto the floor flipper, and after it was thrown, Sir Killalot pushed it back onto the floor flipper again to be thrown again.

Sir Killalot and Matilda attack Rohog

Sir Killalot puts Rohog on the floor flipper again

In Round 1 of Heat D, Rohog broke down during its battle with Sir Chromalot. Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw and took it to the floor flipper. Rohog was thrown across the arena, and Matilda ripped into it with her flywheel, then Sir Killalot crushed the back of the robot with his claw, and took it to the floor flipper to be thrown again.

"I tell you what I think's happening out there - the robots, the House Robots do mind the fact that Rohog was immobilised so soon, and therefore, they have been punishing in their attacks on that machine! You can't bring in a feeble robot - not into Robot Wars , and expect to get away with it!"
— Jonathan Pearce as the Rohog takes more damage

Kliptonite is held over the Flame Pit

A ruined Kliptonite is pitted by Sir Killalot

In Heat J, after Kliptonite was counted out, Sir Killalot picked it up and pushed it into Matilda's flywheel. He then started spinning it around and tossed it aside, before picking it up again and carrying it to Matilda again, who ripped the back armour with her flywheel. Sir Killalot then picked it up and carried it to the flame pit, holding it over the flames, before finally carrying it to the pit and dropping it in.

"The House robots, Sir Killalot and Matilda, to punish Kliptonite for bringing in a sub-standard machine! Bring in a heap of junk, and we'll turn it into proper rubbish, says Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce, as the House Robots demolish Kliptonite

Sir Killalot carries 8645T to the floor flipper

One robot was actually able to get away from Sir Killalot after being immobilised. After 8645T was flipped over by S.M.I.D.S.Y., Sir Killalot picked it up with his claw, then carried it across to the floor flipper. However, as he dropped it onto the floor flipper, 8645T fell onto its wheels, and it quickly drove away before it could be flipped. Cease was called before Sir Killalot could go after it and cause more damage.

"Go on, get it on to that floor flipper Killalot... no, no, no, no! That's not part of the script actually, you shouldn't be getting away at this late stage! Oh, and I wanted to see the beast fly!"
— Jonathan Pearce as 8645T gets away from Sir Killalot and the floor flipper

Sir Killalot drags MouseTrap and S3 together

During the battle between MouseTrap and S3, MouseTrap grabbed S3 in its trap, then pushed it into Sir Killalot's CPZ. However, MouseTrap did not let go, so Sir Killalot grabbed MouseTrap by the blade and picked it up. As he did so, S3 hit MouseTrap's spring with its spinning disc, which became caught in the disc, causing the two robots to become caught together. Sir Killalot pulled the two robots out to the arena centre and let them go, although S3 was still caught on the blue spring.

Sir Killalot crushes Corkscrew's handle

Sir Killalot grabs Robochicken-Evo

Sir Killalot also used his claw to crush some of the decorations on competitors, such as when he crushed the handle on top of Corkscrew. After Dominator 2 turned it over, Sir Killalot picked Corkscrew up by the handle and crushed the handle, bending it. He also grabbed the axe of Robochicken-EVO during its battle with Crushtacean, pulled the robot into the CPZ, then cut through one of the eyes.

"Robochicken is pecked by Sir Killalot, and the boggling eyes are still intact, but only just. "Fowl" tackle by Killalot, surely!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drags Robochicken-Evo into the CPZ and crushes its eye

Sir Killalot lifts the burning Black Widow with his lance

As in Extreme 1, Sir Killalot rarely used his lance. One notable exception came in Round 1 of Heat B, in the battle between Hypno-Disc and Black Widow. After Black Widow was counted out, Sir Killalot got his lance amongst Black Widow's legs and used it to lift it up, then held it over a flame jet. He then used the lance to drag Black Widow to the flipper, but due to the robot's heavy weight, and because Sir Killalot had put it halfway on the flipper, instead of being thrown, it was held up, balancing on the top, the only time this ever happened.

Sir Killalot picks up Atomic 2 with his lance

In the same Heat, Sir Killalot also used his lance to pick up Atomic 2 after it was beaten by Hypno-Disc in Round 2. After picking it up with his claw, spinning it with it and tossing it aside, Sir Killalot got his lance under the wheels and lifted Atomic 2 up, then turned it over onto its top by the pit. Matilda attacked it with her flywheel, turning it back over, then Sir Killalot backed Atomic 2 into the pit.

Sir Killalot lifts Tornado with his lance

Another rare use of his lance came in Round 1 of Heat G, in the battle between Tornado and Gravedigger. Tornado rammed Gravedigger into the arena wall by Sir Killalot's CPZ, where it lost power to its receiver. Tornado drove down to the bottom of the arena to open the pit, and Sir Killalot grabbed Gravedigger by the axe and pulled it away from the wall. Whilst Refbot counted Gravedigger out, Tornado drove around to Gravedigger's side to push it, but Refbot was in the way. As Tornado tried to push Gravedigger, Sir Killalot lowered his lance behind Tornado, so that when Tornado reversed for another charge, it reversed onto the lance, allowing Sir Killalot to lift it up a little, until it slipped off. This brief moment was one of the only times he used his lance in this series.

Sir Killalot picks up Wowot

Sir Killalot had some notable battles across the series. One of them was a controversial Round 1 battle in Heat B. Wowot had Lambsy pinned down with its arm, and as they pushed against each other, Lambsy backed Wowot towards Sir Killalot, who pushed Wowot away from the CPZ with his claw, lifting it up a little. However, Wowot was then unable to release Lambsy or move away, and Sir Killalot came out to attack, crushing through the back, despite the fact Wowot was not in the CPZ. Sir Killalot then carried Wowot into the arena centre and dropped it on its back.

"Well, as Wowot was pushing Lambsy in then the Corner Patrol Zone, it opened itself up for an attack, you see by Killalot, coming out and crumpling! Now I wonder if that's gonna cause major damage to Wowot! This would be a real turn up for the books, because Adam Clark was well in command over Ian Lockhart and his team! And I think Wowot here, are in real trouble! Sir Killalot, when it gets a robot into its claws, does not like leaving them go, with a chance of staying in the competition. And Wowot, crumpled and in major, major problems, now facing Adam Clark!"
— Jonathan as Sir Killalot attacks Wowot

He turned it back over using his lance, but Wowot was only moving on one wheel, so Refbot counted it out. Sir Killalot picked it up with his claw again and twirled it around. He then carried it to the floor flipper and dropped it. After it was thrown, Sir Killalot picked it up and span it again, throwing it across the arena, where it hit Shunt. Finally, Sir Killalot picked it up his claw again, carried it to the pit and dropped it in.

Sir Killalot breaks the turret of Evolution

Sir Killalot gets a yellow card from Refbot

Even more controversial was the battle between Sabretooth and Evolution in Round 1 of Heat G. Whilst the two competitors were fighting, Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash came out of their CPZs, with Sir Killalot getting his claw between Evolution and Sabretooth, blocking Evolution. Sir Killalot reversed and the two robots continued fighting, with Sabretooth getting behind Evolution, but it could not push it, so Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash attacked, with Sir Killalot using his claw to push Sabretooth away from Evolution, whilst Sgt. Bash crushed into the front of Evolution. Refbot intervened, giving Sgt. Bash a yellow card. Sgt. Bash returned to his CPZ, but Sir Killalot did not, instead grabbing Evolution by the turret, snapping it with his claw. Sir Killalot then picked the robot up by the turret and span it around. Refbot gave him a yellow card as well, and he returned to his CPZ. As a result of the unfair interventions by the House Robots, the Judges chose to put Evolution through to Round 2.

"Well they've got something against Evolution, haven't they? Because now Sir Killalot, oh look at that! Killalot has totally bent and buckled the weaponry of Evolution! What have they got against Evolution? Hang on, I'm being passed a message here from Matilda in the pits, "House Robots don't like wooden machines"!  Part MDF, Evolution, and that's why they're after you, they think you're taking the Michael!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Evolution

Sir Killalot picks up Widow's Revenge and drops it on Sumpthing

Sir Killalot also broke the rules during the battle between Widow's Revenge and Sumpthing in Heat K. The two competitors were fighting at the bottom of the arena towards the end of the battle, near Sir Killalot's CPZ, and Sumpthing pushed Widow's Revenge towards Sir Killalot, who was on the edge of the CPZ. However, although Widow's Revenge was not in the CPZ, Sir Killalot picked Widows Revenger up and dropped it on top of Sumpthing, leaving Sumpthing unable to move out from underneath Widow's Revenge, and Widows Revenge unable to get down. However, time soon ran out.

Sir Killalot picks up 3 Stegs 2 Heaven

Sir Killalot's most eventful battle in this series was the Heat Final in Heat I, between Bigger Brother and 3 Stegs 2 Heaven. Bigger Brother pushed 3 Stegs 2 Heaven into the CPZ, but then turned on Shunt, flipping him over. Sir Killalot came over to the CPZ, driving between Bigger Brother and 3 Stegs 2 Heaven. Bigger Brother reversed away, and Sir Killalot picked 3 Stegs 2 Heaven up with his claw.

"Shunt is furious! Sir Killalot wants revenge - on anything! Grapples with 3 Stegs! Unfortunately, you're going to bear the brunt of House Robot's fury, 3 Stegs!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up 3 Stegs 2 Heaven

Bigger Brother takes on Sir Killalot


As he carried 3 Stegs 2 Heaven out of the CPZ, Bigger Brother attempted to flip him, first driving at his front, then driving to the side and trying to get under the tracks. Sir Killalot dropped 3 Stegs 2 Heaven, but before he could attack, Refbot rushed over, as Sir Killalot was out of the CPZ. Sir Killalot drove down the arena, and Bigger Brother went back after 3 Stegs 2 Heaven. Once Bigger Brother had flipped 3 Stegs 2 Heaven against the arena wall, it drove at Sir Killalot again, speeding around him, and as he turned, Sir Killalot tried getting under the tracks and flipping, but this failed as it couldn't get the flipper under the tracks.

"Look at Bigger Brother, nippy around the arena, 12 miles per hour! "Catch me if you can! Catch me if you can!" No no no no no, no no, that's a little bit... that's a little bit too ambitious. Ian, don't try and flip Killalot! I wouldn't!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Bigger Brother speeds around Sir Killalot and tries to flip him

Sir Killalot pits 3 Stegs 2 Heaven and Bigger Brother, but falls in himself

Bigger Brother kept trying to get under the tracks, and Sir Killalot turned, allowing Bigger Brother to get under the back, but its flipper was not powerful enough to lift Sir Killalot. Sir Killalot turned around, trying to grab Bigger Brother with his claw, but Bigger Brother rushed away. Meanwhile, Refbot pushed 3 Stegs 2 Heaven off the wall, but Bigger Brother kept attacking Sir Killalot, getting at his front. Sir Killalot bulldozed Bigger Brother into the CPZ where it had overturned Shunt, and Bigger Brother got its flipper under Sir Killalot's front and tried to flip, but still couldn't lift the House Robot, although the flipper did break the cable connecting the helmet and the breastplate. Bigger Brother escaped the CPZ and went back after 3 Stegs 2 Heaven, and soon flipped it onto its side, immobilising it. Sir Killalot came over, grabbed 3 Stegs 2 Heaven and pulled it back to the pit, dropping it by the pit as the pit opened. Bigger Brother rushed in to push 3 Stegs 2 Heaven into the pit, but as it did so, Sir Killalot pushed it into the pit with it, but as he did so, he drove too far, toppling into the pit as well, although he was able to reverse out of the pit, using one of his tracks which was still touching the floor.

"They've all ended up in there! Sir Killalot, not the brainiest, let's be honest! Just about surviving. Did I say that? He knows where I live?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drives into the pit

Razer takes on Sir Killalot...

...and loses

Bigger Brother was not the only robot brave enough to take on Sir Killalot this series. After defeating Rick in the Heat Final of Heat K, Razer attacked Sir Killalot. Sir Killalot was attacking Rick with his claw, when Razer drove into Sir Killalot's back and tried to grip onto it. Sir Killalot reversed against Razer, pushing it back, but Razer was not deterred, and drove at Sir Killalot's back again, trying to grab it with its crusher.

"Great fun though, and that's what Robot Wars is all about too! Precise and skilled engineering, and let's not forget the laugh we have too, sometimes at the expense of the House Robots! That's what Razer's going here, look! A little tickle on Sir Killalot from the Razer beak! Razer, you may rue that later on in the series! Sir Killalot's blinking eyes hath fury!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Razer takes Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot turned, and Razer drove at Sir Killalot's claw arm, and tried grabbing onto it with the crusher, but Sir Killalot raised the arm, and Razer slipped off. Sir Killalot chased Razer, who reversed and drove away, then drove around Sir Killalot. Razer drove back at Sir Killalot, driving at the claw arm and grabbing onto it with its crusher. However, Sir Killalot raised the claw arm, lifting Razer off the ground. Razer would not let go, allowing Sir Killalot to carry it. Shunt opened the pit, and Sir Killalot dropped Razer in.

"In comes Sir Killalot with his great pincers, fashioned from the Jaws of Life, used by rescuers, firemen and the like, to prise people away from wreckage, and used there to dump Razer into the pit!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drops Razer into the pit

Sir Killalot's "grudge" against Stinger continued from Extreme 1.

"...he's got past history with Stinger, they don't like each other!"
— Jonathan Pearce on Sir Killalot, prior to Stinger's Heat Final

Stinger comes under pressure from Sir Killalot in the closing seconds

In its Round 1 battle against Hippobotomus, Stinger accidentally turned into his CPZ towards the end of the battle, and Sir Killalot blocked its escape, pushing it against the wall, then grabbed one of the wheels with his claw and held it up. Sir Killalot did not drop it until after the battle ended, driving out of the CPZ still holding Stinger up, only dropping it after cease was called.

"Stinger now, oh back in the CPZ! Now could we yet see a surprise, if Sir Killalot grapples hold of Stinger?! What a mistake to make! They reversed in there, and maybe the clock will save them! Sir Killalot hoists Stinger up! Well that was very nearly suicidal driving by Stinger!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Stinger is picked up by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot picks up Stinger

Later, in the Heat Final against S3, S3 immobilised Stinger, and Sir Killalot picked Stinger up by its lance and took it to the floor flipper. After it was thrown, Stinger started moving again.

Series 6[]

"And Sir Killalot can crush with mighty menace, twist, twirl and torment even the Refbot's watchful eye!"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces Sir Killalot in the House Robot Introduction

Philippa Forrester and Craig Charles with Sir Killalot in a promotional photo for Series 6

Sir Killalot in the House Robot Introduction

Due to the introduction of Mr. Psycho in this series, Sir Killalot was no longer the largest of the House Robots, though he was still used a lot in Series 6, appearing in every episode. He was used in all five battles in Heat C, as well as 4 out of 5 in Heat L and 4 out of 6 in Semi-Final 1. However, in Heats G and J, he was only used in the Heat Final, and he was not used in either battle. He also only appeared in one battle of the Grand Final, Battle 1 between Razer and Terrorhurtz, which he was also not involved in.

Occasionally, he would be put in the arena with the new largest House Robot. The first time this happened is in Round 2 of Heat C, during the battle with Chaos 2 and Crushtacean, and also in the other Round 2 battle between Dantomkia and Mighty Mouse.

The two of them were not involved in either of those battles, the two would also be paired together in the second Round 1 melee of the next Heat. Roobarb stopped moving in the CPZ after its removable link fell out, and it was attacked by Sir Killalot and Mr Psycho, with Mr Psycho hammering it, and after it was counted out, Sir Killalot picked it up with his claw, pulled it out of the CPZ, and took it to the arena centre, where he span around with it, before dropping it into the pit.

The two would also be paired together in the first Round 1 melee of Heat L, the battle between Razer and Dantomkia in the first Semi-Final, and the Losers Melee in the second Semi-Final.

"Have ever two heavier House Robots been in the arena together?!"
— Jonathan Pearce in the Round 1 melee in Heat L

For this series, Sir Killalots claw was improved, being redesigned and rebuilt with stronger metal

"The cutting jaw shape has been completely redesigned and buttressed to add strength - it's now fabricated with 25mm space-age steel alloy, increased from 20mm. This stops the jaws from splitting apart, like old scissors do when trying to cut something tough."
— The Series 6 programme on the improved jaws[13]

Sir Killalot drops Dantomkia into the pit

Sir Killalot pushes Mr Nasty and Doctor Fist into the pit

As usual, Sir Killalot's main role was to carry out "mercy killings" on beaten robots. He put robots such as Destructosaur and Sir Chromalot onto the floor flipper, and put robots such as Derek 2 and Dantomkia in the pit. Sometimes, he used his claws to pick robots up and carry them to the arena hazards, such as when he picked up Dantomkia and carried it to the pit and dropped it in, and when he grabbed Spin Doctor and carried it to the floor flipper, but most of the times he simply pushed robots into the hazards. In Round 1 of Heat C, he bulldozed Mr Nasty and Doctor Fist into the pit together. Another case came in Heat L, where he pushed Derek 2 into the pit after Behemoth and Tridentate had been pushed in by Shunt, making it one of the only times three heavyweight robots went into the pit in one battle. In the cases of Tiberius 3 and ROCS, he put them on the floor flipper, and also put them into the pit.

Sir Killalot pulls Robochicken out of the pit

Sir Killalot places Robochicken on the Drop Zone

Series 6 also saw The Drop Zone used for the first time in the UK series, and Sir Killalot placed a number of competitors on the Drop Zone. The first time it was used was in Round 1 of Heat B, the victim being Robochicken. X-Terminator drove in under Robochicken, and flipped it over using its axe. With Robochicken unable to right itself, it was put on the Drop Zone, but it fired the flipper, lifting it up, and causing it to fall over the side of the Drop Zone. X-Terminator then pushed it into the pit, but Sir Killalot grabbed Robochicken by the axe with his claw, and pulled it out of the pit. He then carried it over to the Drop Zone, and this time Robochicken stayed still, allowing a cooker to be dropped on it. After it was hit, it began spinning on the spot.

"No, Sir Killalot, don't dump him in the pit! Don't... no, no, no no no! Get a message to Sir Killalot, I want more punishment for Robochicken! That's it, drag him out. Now, we have a new feature, in the sixth series of Robot Wars - it's called The Drop Zone! Place him on there, x marks the spot. Well done Sir Killalot, obeying instructions."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pushes Robochicken into the pit, then pulls it out and takes it to the Drop Zone

Sir Killalot topples Demolition Man with his claw

Sir Killalot puts Demolition Man on the Drop Zone

The second robot Sir Killalot put on the Drop Zone was Demolition Man in round 1 of Heat F. After it was counted out, Sir Killalot grabbed its front with his claw and pulled it away from the wall, dragging it to the floor flipper, where he used his claw to tip it onto its side. Sir Killalot then bulldozed Demolition Man to the Drop Zone.

"Sir Killalot comes in, and I think, looked a little bit cagey there! "Should I take him on?" he thought "He's a bit of a heavy one, this brute!" and wobbles it onto its side!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pulls Demolition Man away from the wall and toppled it

Sir Killalot pushes Major Tom to the Drop Zone

In Heat L, Major Tom was only working on one wheel, and it was counted out. Sir Killalot pushed it to the Drop Zone, where a load of balls were dropped on it. However, as Major Tom was still mobile on one wheel, it tried to drive off the Drop Zone. It couldn't drive away, but it did manage to turn so it was only over half of the Drop Zone, meaning a lot of the balls missed when they were dropped.

Sir Killalot drills into W.A.S.P.

Although Sir Killalot was used more to push robots onto the arena hazards rather than to damage competitors, he did cause some notable damage to competitors. In the first battle of the series, W.A.S.P. was outside of Sir Killalot's CPZ, struggling to move forwards, and Raging Reality flipped it against Sir Killalot, with W.A.S.P. landing on his lance and being impaled. Sir Killalot lifted it up, ripping open some of the front armour. Sir Killalot dropped it, but W.A.S.P. could not get away, and Raging Reality flipped it back into the CPZ. Sir Killalot punctured the side with his lance and began to drill into it, ripping a large hole in the side. Sir Killalot then pushed W.A.S.P. out of the CPZ, and picked it up with his lance, spinning it around until it ripped through the armour and W.A.S.P. fell off. This was one of the very rare times in the later series where Sir Killalot caused damage with his drill, and one of the only times in this series where he used the drill.

"Oh! Overturned, over and out, over to you Sir Killalot for the W.A.S.P. boys! We know there's no sting in there! And we know the end of the tale is nigh for W.A.S.P.! Buzz off, and out of here, and fly, fly away, to fight another day! It looks gruesome ... W.A.S.P. we know is finished, oh look at the shredding though, of that drill!"
— Jonathan Pearce as W.A.S.P is flipped into Sir Killalot's CPZ, then has its side drilled into by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot drags Kat 3 to the floor flipper, and cuts its axe

Chris Reynolds holds up Kat 3's axe head

In the Heat K Round 2 battle between Barber-Ous 2 and Kat 3, after Kat 3 was turned over and counted out, Sir Killalot grabbed overturned Kat 3 by the axe and dragged it to the floor flipper. As he grabbed the axe handle, he almost cut through it, and as Kat 3 swung the axe back and forth in an attempt to self-right, the axe head fully broke off, being thrown up the arena.

"What's come off there? After all that they've chopped off part of their weaponry, Kat 3! Must have been pincered off by Sir Killalot, I would have thought."
— Jonathan Pearce as Kat 3's axe head flies off

During the post-battle interview with Team KaterKiller, Sir Killalot's operator Chris Reynolds held up the axe head and showed it to the camera.

"Have you seen your axe? There you go, a little trophy for Sir Killalot there!"
— Craig Charles as Chris Reynolds holds up the axe head

Sir Killalot burns Dynamite on the flame pit

Sir Killalot disposes of the ruined Dynamite

The most damage Sir Killalot caused to a robot in this series was the loanerbot Dynamite in the UK vs Germany Special. After it became immobilised, Sir Killalot pushed it onto the floor flipper. It was thrown down the armour, with various pieces falling off on impact. After it was thrown, Sir Killalot picked it up with his claw, crumpling the armour. Sir Killalot carried it across the arena, then dropped it, causing the armour shell to come loose. Sir Killalot then picked Dynamite up by the frame and span it around, its armour dangling from the frame. He  briefly held it over the flames, then took it down to the bottom of the arena. As he did so, the armour fell off. Sir Killalot finally dropped it out of the arena.

"Germany none too impressive so far, think the House Robots! ... Uh ho, Dynamite crumpled! (Laughs) Oh dear, go on Killalot! The armament, what have the armament out of? Baked bean tins? No! A baked bean is more mean!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot grabs and picks up Dynamite

Sir Killalot lifts Crushtacean off of the arena wall

Despite Refbot being intended as the neutral robot that helped competitors when they were stuck or caught together, Sir Killalot was regularly used across the series to help robots that were stuck. In Round 1 of Heat C, Dantomkia flipped Crushtacean against the arena wall in one of the bottom CPZs, and Crushtacean became stuck there, with one of its claws holding it up against the wall. Sir Killalot came into the CPZ and picked it up with his claw, spun around with it, before dropping it back to the floor.

Sir Killalot helps separate Vader and Wild Thing

In the Heat Final of Heat E, Vader's flywheel became caught in the front of Wild Thing. Refbot tried reversing against Wild Thing to push it free, but this didn't work, so Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ, driving to the other side and got his claw between Vader and Wild Thing, pushing Wild Thing free of the disc. Later in the same battle, Wild Thing's disc became stuck in the side of Vader. Refbot pushed against the two, and Sir Killalot tried lifting Wild Thing with his claw, but this did not separated the two, so Wild Thing continued pushing Vader with its disc in the side, until it pushed it into Shunt, who lifted Vader with his scoop, which freed it from the cutting disc.

Sir Killalot reverses into Dantomkia, pushing it free of  the angle grinder

Sir Killalot was used twice to free competitors that were stuck during the Losers' Melee in Semi-Final 1. First, Dantomkia flipped Wild Thing against the wall, where Wild Thing was stuck, unable to get down, so Sir Killalot pulled it off the wall. Later, Dantomkia drove into an angle grinder, which it became stuck underneath, so Sir Killalot reversed into it, pushing it out from under the angle grinder.

Sir Killalot blocks Kronic 2 with his lance

As in Extreme 1 and Series 5, Sir Killalot's lance was rarely used, as the robots armour was too strong to damage with the lance, and he used the claw to pick up robots. One exception came in Round 1 of Heat I, R.O.C.S. was thrown by the floor flipper, and Kronic 2 drove at it to try and push it in the pit, but Sir Killalot drove between the two of them, using his lance to block Kronic 2, and pushed the two competitors together. He then pushed ROCS into the pit.

Sir Killalot topples whilst holding Shredder

Strangely, Sir Killalot had a number of comical moments across the series, In the Heat Final of Heat D, Sir Killalot came out to attack Shredder after it was counted out. Sir Killalot started pushing it around the arena, but Shredder managed to turn away from Sir Killalot, despite only one wheel working. However, it could not drive away properly, and it turned back, allowing Sir Killalot to grab it with his claw. Sir Killalot picked Shredder up and reversed with it, but when he tried spinning with it, he toppled forwards. Sir Killalot drove forwards to try and regain his balance, which briefly brought his tracks back down to the floor, but when he stopped he toppled forwards again.

"...Sir Killalot wants more with his little plaything, and Sir Killalot does his favourite dance! He's trying to learn how to breakdance, Matilda's teaching him in the pits, it's ... it's interesting to watch! Especially when Craig takes part."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up and spins Shredder, but topples forwards

Sir Killalot almost drives into the pit

He let go of Shredder and reversed, briefly pierouetting up on the front of his tracks as he did so until he fell down. Sir Killalot drove after Shredder, but despite its limited mobility, Shredder was able to drive away, driving to the edge of the pit. Sir Killalot caught up with it, but as he tried to grab it with his claw, he drove over the edge of the pit, with one track falling in. Sir Killalot was forced to get the track out of the pit, giving Shredder the opportunity to drive around Sir Killalot.

"...and Sir Killalot is also doing its own dance of very near total humiliation! They very nearly went down the pit there! I don't think they would have fitted into that pit!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot drives over the edge of the pit

Sir Killalot hits an arena light with The Stag

The Stag's chicken in Sir Killalot's clutches

In Round 1 of Heat E, The Stag was pushed into Sir Killalot's CPZ by Wild Thing, and Sir Killalot picked it up by the front pincers with his claw. He span it around, but as he did so, he hit some of the arena lights with The Stag, knocking them over, and as he stopped, he toppled forwards. Sir Killalot reversed, balancing on his front as he did so before falling down. The Stag was immobile by this point, and after it was counted out, Sir Killalot grabbed The Stag's rubber chicken in his claw, and after pushing The Stag away from the CPZ, held the chicken up to the camera. As he held it up, Sgt. Bash blasted it with his flamethrower, though this was only seen in the background.

Supernova drives around Sir Killalot's breastplate

Sir Killalot's breast plate fell off during the second Round 1 melee in Heat H. Sir Killalot drove up to one of the top CPZs after Tiberius 3 was flipped over, and as he turned around, his breastplate suddenly dropped off the front. It hit his claw as it fell off, and because Sir Killalot was turning, it was knocked away from the CPZ towards Supernova.

"Oh! The breastplate of Sir Killalot has come flying off! I'm not too sure who caused that, but the breastplate of Sir Killalot is off, much to the enjoyment of everyone it seems..."
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot's breastplate falls off

Strangely, in a number of battles, particularly during the Semi-Finals, Sir Killalot's drill on the end of his lance was clearly bent. In all the Round 1 battles, the drill is straight, and it is straight throughout the first three Heats, but it can be seen bent for the first time in the Round 2 battle between S3 and Sir Chromalot. Due to the order the battles were filmed in, the drill goes from being straight to being bent across the series. For example, it is bent in the Heat Final of Heat D, but not in the Heat Finals of Heat E or Heat G. It is bent in all the battles Sir Killalot is used in during the Semi-Finals and Grand Final. However, in the two Round 1 battles in the UK vs Germany Special where Sir Killalot is used, the lance is straight.

Sir Killalot drives to the edge of the pit

During the Heat Final of Heat J, Sir Killalot drove to the edge of the open pit. This was actually so the producers could get a good view of the battle through his KillCam, as Dominator 2 and Hydra were fighting on the other side of the pit.

In the Losers' Melee of Semi-Final 2, when Hypno-Disc was immobile in the CPZ, Sir Killalot picked it up with his claw and span around, but as he did so, he actually hit the camera with Hypno-Disc, and when he stopped, he toppled forwards.

Sir Killalot topples forwards whilst holding Crushtacean

Sir Killalot topples forwards whilst holding Doctor Fist

Toppling forwards whilst trying to pick up or spin robots was consistently a problem for Sir Killalot across the series. In Round 1 of Heat C, when Crushtacean was caught on the wall after being flipped against it, Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw and pulled it off the wall, then picked it up and span it. As Sir Killalot reversed, he toppled forwards. He drove forwards and let go of Crushtacean, He fell back down, but smoke could be seen coming from his internals. Later in the same battle, he grabbed Doctor Fist after it was counted out, but as he tried picking it up, he fell forwards. He reversed on the edge of his tracks, before using his claw to push himself down.

Sir Killalot holds Stinger over the arena wall

Sir Killalot was used in two of Stinger's three battles, but he only made one brief attack on his "old rival". In the Heat Final of Heat F, towards the end of the battle, 13 Black pushed Stinger into an empty CPZ, driving in itself as well, and Sir Killalot drove down to the CPZ, pushing the two against the wall. He grabbed Stinger by the mace with his claw and lifted it up, holding it on the fence, but time ran out, so he dropped it on the fence.

Extreme 2[]

"Guaranteed to cause mayhem , Sir Killalot with his hydraulic cutters and lance."
— The Robot Wars website on Sir Killalot

Extreme 2 was a relatively quiet year for Sir Killalot. Although he appeared in every episode except one, he was used in only one or two battles in the vast majority of episodes, and had fewer notable moments than in most series. In the Annihilator, Tag Team, Iron Maidens and Commonwealth Carnage, he was only used in one battle. Sir Killalot was only used in two of the 7 battles in the Robot Rampage (discounting the Antweight Championship), and although he was used in 3 of the 5 battles in the European Championship, he was not involved in any of those battles. The most appearances he made in one episode of this series was in the University Challenge, where he was used in four of the five battles, the only exception being the final.

S.M.I.D.S.Y. is pitted by Sir Killalot

By now, robot armour was very strong in most cases, so the Jaws of Life were used mostly for picking up robots, and Sir Killalot was mostly used for "mercy killings" on beaten competitors across the series. In Round 2 of the Annihilator, he picked up Raging Reality with his claw and put it on the floor flipper. In Round 2 of the Challenge Belt, he pushed S.M.I.D.S.Y. onto the floor flipper, and after it was thrown, he pushed it into the pit. In Round 1 of the University Challenge, he used his claw to hold Behemoth over the flame pit, then put it on the floor flipper. He continued to put robots on the Drop Zone, putting Niterider, RT81, Mad Dog and Fatal Traction on the Drop Zone in successive Heats during the New Blood Championship

Sir Killalot puts Rick on the disc of doom

This series also saw the only time the Disc of Doom was used as a punishment for a beaten competitor. After Rick became immobilised in Round 2 of the Minor Meltdown, Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw, pulled it out of the CPZ and pushed it onto the Disc of Doom, where it was counted out by Refbot. Bigger Brother then reversed into the button. Rick was spun, but slid off pretty quickly.

Sir Killalot extracts Saw Point from the wreckage

Sir Killalot drops Saw Point out of the arena

One of Sir Killalot's most notable battles in this series was the Round 1 melee in the Minor Meltdown between Bigger Brother, Lambsy and Saw Point. After Bigger Brother flipped Saw Point over, Refbot went over to count it out, and Sir Killalot was ready and waiting to attack, but as Refbot began his count, Sir Killalot actually pushed Refbot. When Saw Point was counted out, Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw and took it to the arena centre, where he span around with it, then tossed it away, throwing it against the wall. Growler grabbed it with his jaws and attacked it for a time, and after Growler let it go, Sir Killalot drove to attack it. However, Growler also charged at Saw Point at the same time, and the two House Robots bumped into each other. Sir Killalot picked Saw Point up with his claw and took it to the Drop Zone, where a load of car parts were dropped on it. Sir Killalot still wasn't finished however, as it lifted Saw Point from the wreckage, took it to the bottom of the arena, although he overbalanced and toppled forwards. He quickly righted himself, and dropped Saw Point over the wall.

In the New Blood Championship, Sir Killalot and the other House Robots were allowed to do more damage than usual to beaten competitors, as the usual "mercy clauses" did not apply for this competition. As a result, Sir Killalot was busiest this series during the New Blood Championship.

"A real baptism of fire - none of the "Mercy Clauses" that the usual competitors get to sign, if you lost in this your machine was going to be thoroughly trashed by the House Robots, there was even a briefing given before the competition explaining what was in store."
— Team Storm Website[14]

Sir Killalot puts Niterider on the floor flipper

The first example of this came in Round 1 of Heat A. Niterider failed to move away from its starting position, turning back and forth on one side. Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ and grabbed the back of Niterider, and pulled it backwards. He let it go, and Refbot came over to count it out. Once it was counted out, Sir Killalot began punishing Niterider, first putting it on the floor flipper, and after it was thrown and attacked by Matilda, Sir Killalot grabbed it by the disenbowler and lifted it up, spinning it around. He then reversed it onto the Drop Zone.

Sir Killalot grabs the side of Edge Hog, crumpling the armour

In the Final of Heat B, Thor rammed Edge Hog into Sir Killalot's CPZ, and Sir Killalot lifted Edge Hog up with his claw, leaving it leaning against the arena wall. Edge Hog kept firing the axe to try and get down, but Sir Killalot kept it pinned against the wall until Sgt. Bash pushed it free. Sir Killalot grabbed the side of Edge Hog, crumpling the armour, then picked up Edge Hog and spun around with it, then dropped it on its back, standing upright. Refbot counted Edge Hog out, and Sir Killalot pushed Edge Hog over to the floor flipper, and after it was thrown, Sir Killalot bulldozed Edge Hog into the pit.

"Now Sir Killalot comes in, that could well be a decisive moment because Sir Killalot now has Edge Hog by the front fang, and it's teetering on the brink of oblivion, right up on there, on the arena side wall!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot holds Edge Hog up on the wall

Sir Killalot and Matilda attack Mad Dog

Sir Killalot was also particularly cruel to Mad Dog in Heat C. After it was counted out, Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw, and pushed it into Matilda's flywheels. Sir Killalot carried it to the floor flipper. After it was thrown, he grabbed the back of Mad Dog, lifted it up and carried it to the Drop Zone, where a load of balls were dropped on it. Finally, Sir Killalot reversed Mad Dog into the pit.

"Sir Killalot, will it just crunch off the Mad Dog lifting device?"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picks up Mad Dog by the flipper

Sir Killalot picks Cedric Slammer up with his lance

As in the past three series, Sir Killalot's lance was rarely used, with the main exception being in the Heat Final of Heat D of the New Blood Championship. Cedric Slammer was slowing down by the arena side wall, just outside of Sir Killalot's CPZ, moving back and forth but unable to get away. Pressure pushed it against the wall, and Sir Killalot rammed Cedric Slammer with its lance, getting the lance in the front frame, and pushed it against the angle grinder. Sir Killalot reversed and turned, but Pressure kept Cedric Slammer pinned against the wall. Sir Killalot got his lance underneath Cedric Slammer, and pushed it away from the wall, against the angle grinder. He raised the lance, but Cedric Slammer slid off. Pressure pinned Cedric Slammer against the wall, and Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ again, getting his lance under Cedric Slammer. He raised the lance, tipping Cedric Slammer upright, but Cedric Slammer fell back on its wheels. Sir Killalot then pushed Pressure and Cedric Slammer away from his CPZ together, pushing the two competitors down the arena, then steering them into the disc of doom button. Sir Killalot then got his lance in the side of Cedric Slammer, and its exposed frame allowed Sir Killalot to get his lance in the side, lift Cedric Slammer up and pull it away, carrying it to the arena centre. Sir Killalot carried Cedric Slammer across the arena to the flame pit and held Cedric Slammer over the flames, with Sgt. Bash also firing his flamethrower at it. As time ran out, Sir Killalot pulled Cedric Slammer off the flames, and began spinning with it, tossing it aside as Cease was called. Despite this, Cedric Slammer still won the Judges' decision.

Sir Killalot picks up and spins Behemoth with his lance

The other notable time Sir Killalot used his lance came in Round 1 of the University Challenge. Behemoth lost mobility due to a faulty wire in its safety link, and Sir Killalot speared the front of Behemoth, getting the lance between the top and the scoop, and picked it up. Sir Killalot spun around with it, then dropped it back to the floor, then used his claw to lift Behemoth up and carry it to the floor flipper.

Sir Killalot holds up and overturns Edge Hog with his claw

Sir Killalot caused some controversy in this series. One instance where he broke the rules came in Round 1 of Heat B in the New Blood Championship. Edge Hog was axing RT81, and Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ, driving towards the two competitors. Edge Hog's axe became stuck in RT81's tyre, and Sir Killalot started pushing RT81, with Mr Psycho also pushing RT81. Sir Killalot drove away and Edge Hog got free. RT81 caught fire internally, immobilising it, but Edge Hog stopped moving on one wheel. As it span around, Mr. Psycho bulldozed it across the arena to the CPZ. Sir Killalot came into the CPZ, grabbing the side of Edge Hog and picking it up as he pulled it out of the CPZ. Sir Killalot pulled it up the arena, then dropped it against an angle grinder. After RT81 was counted out, Sir Killalot drove over to it, grabbed the side with his claw, crumpling the tyre, and pushed it to the Drop Zone.

"Poor old Edge Hog did all the work in this for me, and the House Robots hate him for it!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot attacks Edge Hog

Sir Killalot comes out of his CPZ and interferes with the battle

Sir Killalot bulldozes Mad Dog into the CPZ

Sir Killalot also came out of his CPZ during the Round 1 melee in Heat C of the New Blood Championship, despite the fact all three robots were still mobile. ICU was fighting with Mad Dog, and Sir Killalot drove at ICU, pushing it with his claw. Chopper charged up the arena and pushed ICU away from Sir Killalot. Mad Dog drove away down the arena, and although it was still fully mobile, Sir Killalot chased it and bulldozed it into a CPZ.

Pussycat is put under pressure by Sir Killalot

During the battle between Kat 3 and Pussycat in the Iron Maidens, Sir Killalot drove out of his CPZ whilst the two competitors were fighting, even though neither robot was immobile, nor were they in a CPZ. Sir Killalot drove to the arena centre and held back, but when Pussycat turned away from Kat 3 and drove into the empty CPZ, Sir Killalot rushed over, blocking Pussycat as it tried to reverse out of the CPZ and pushing it against the wall. Sir Killalot then turned, pushing Pussycat with his claw, allowing it to get free of the CPZ.

Sir Killalot turns Terror Turtle over

One of Sir Killalot's most controversial moments in this series came in Round 1 of the Commonwealth Carnage. Towards the end of the battle, Panic Attack pushed Terror Turtle into his CPZ, and Sir Killalot grabbed the back of Terror Turtle, and pulled it out of the CPZ. He lifted Terror Turtle up and turned it over, prompting JJ Frizell to reveal a banner that said "Save The Turtle". At the end of the battle, the Judges' overruled this attack as it was an illegal move for the House Robot, although Terror Turtle was eliminated in the decision anyway.

"Well, they came to laugh, but it is Mock Turtle out there now, as Killalot grabs holds! ... Crushtacean I think is trying to help you out, by nipping at Sir Killalot, but over goes the turtle! Now this is interesting because that's not in a CPZ, and I'm not too sure whether Killalot should have done that!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot turns Terror Turtle over

Sir Killalot also featured in Terror Turtle's other battle in Extreme 2, in Heat A of the New Blood Championship. Roobarb flipped it over, then flipped it against the arena wall, but Terror Turtle could not get away as the bar was hanging over the arena wall. Sir Killalot pushed it back and forth with his claw and lance, and pushed it against the wall, but could not get Terror Turtle free.

Sir Killalot nearly topples over whilst holding Niterider

There were a few comedic moments for Sir Killalot. In Heat A of the New Blood Championship, Sir Killalot was spinning around with the defeated Niterider, but toppled over onto his side as he tried to slow down and let go of Niterider. He was able to push himself back onto his tracks using his claw to push down on the floor.

"Haha! Sir Killalot, fancy Dan and showboating, nearly went over!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot falls over

According to Issue 3 of Robot Wars: The Official Magazine, Sir Killalot was being driven by the magazine's editor Darryl Curtis during this battle. [15]

Darryl Curtis, editor of Robot Wars: The Official Magazine, controlled Sir Killalot in a number of battles across the filming of the series, as part of an article for Issue 3 of Robot Wars: The Official Magazine where she worked with the House Robot controllers. She took it in turns with Chris Reynolds, interchanging between operating the weaponry and driving Sir Killalot.

"After the penultimate battle of the evening, when I was in the driving seat of Killalot for the fifth time in a row, the director congratulated the House Roboteers over the intercom, and in particular complimented Chris on his driving of Sir Killalot - not realizing it was down to me!"
— Darryl Curtis in Robot Wars: The Official Magazine

One of Sir Killalot's eyes also fell out during a battle, reportedly due to Darryl Curtis. The tube under Sir Killalot's helmet also fell off, after it turned Terror Turtle over in Round 1 of the Commonwealth Carnage.

"...when I returned, I discovered to my horror that Killalot had been rendered blind during the latest battle when one of his precious eyes had fallen out... Apparently I hadn't fixed the battery compartment back on properly, and one of poor Killalot's peepers had literally fallen out in the heat of battle. Ashamed of my shoddy workmanship, I ran off to hide in the pits."
— Darryl Curtis in Issue 3 of Robot Wars: The Official Magazine

In the Heat Final of Heat D in the New Blood Championship, Sir Killalot was pushing Edge Hog in reverse towards the arena centre, but as he pushed it past the disc of doom, he accidentally drove over the disc of doom, which turned him around, forcing him to stop pushing Edge Hog and try again.

"GI-Ant-O looked so itty-bitty in the claws of Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot picked up Gi-Ant-O

Sir Killalot holds Gi-Ant-O over the fence

Sir Killalot dropped the featherweight Gi-Ant-O out of the arena during the qualifying heats of the Featherweight Championship. Sir Killalot picked up the tiny 3kg robot in his claw, held it over the fence and dropped it, causing it to break on impact with the floor. Only highlights of the battle were shown, but according to Craig Danby, Gi-Ant-O regained mobility after being counted out by Refbot, and as Sir Killalot chased after it, Gi-Ant-O was able to stay away from him for several minutes until the House Robot finally caught it and grabbed it with his claw.

"We avoided Sir K for 4 mins before he finally got me."
— Craig Danby on what happened to Gi-Ant-O after it was counted out

Sir Killalot's breast plate falls off  in New Blood Heat C

Sir Killalot's breast plate fell off twice, both occasions during the New Blood Heats. First, in Round 1 of Heat C, Sir Killalot was carrying Mad Dog with his claw, and as he placed it on the Drop Zone, he overbalanced forwards a little, and his breastplate fell off. Earlier in the battle, Sir Killalot had pinned Mad Dog against the wall, and Mad Dog had tried flipping Sir Killalot, only managing to lift his breastplate a little.

"That's Sir Killalot's breastplate out there, what on earth is that doing out there, in the centre of the arena? Came off in the battle somewhere! Mad Dog can't take any credit, I don't think!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Sir Killalot attacks Fatal Traction, with his breastplate having been torn off

Then, in Round 2 of Heat D, Cedric Slammer immobilised Fatal Traction with its flywheel, and pushed it into Sir Killalot's CPZ. Sir Killalot pinned Fatal Traction against the wall, grabbed it with his claw and lifted it up, but as he did so, his breastplate was knocked off. Sir Killalot carried Fatal Traction to the Drop Zone, and as he let go, the breastplate dropped onto the floor. pu with his claw, but as he reversed and turned around, the breastplate fell

"That's part of the body plate of Sir Killalot that's been ripped away there, in the centre of the arena! So some damage has been caused!"

Series 7[]

"A savage 'bot, Sir Killalot, he's hot to trot and break robot! A formidable drill lance that can spear straight through even the toughest of robots is just one of Sir Killalot's fearsome weapons. His showpiece is picking up competitor robots and hurling them into the pits!"
— The Series 7 Programme on Sir Killalot [16]

Sir Killalot was used in all but one episode of Series 7, but in most of the episodes, he was only used in 1 or 2 battles. The only episode he was absent from was the Annihilator, where he was not used in any of the four rounds of the Annihilator, nor the House Robot Rebellion held as part of the same episode. Between Heats G and L, Sir Killalot was only used in only one battle per episode, also being used in just one battle in Heat C and the All-Stars. However, he was used in 3 of the 4 battles in the Grand Final. In Heat F, Sir Killalot was used in 4 of the 6 of battles, but his only involvement in those battles was briefly lifting and pushing X-Terminator when it got too close to his CPZ in its Round 2 battle with Killer Carrot 2

Mechaniac is picked up by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot spears Mechaniac

Sir Killalot's first battle of the series came in the World Championship qualifier between Supernova and Mechaniac, shown in Heat A, and it proved to be a very eventful battle for him. Mechaniac drove into an empty CPZ, and Sir Killalot came over to the CPZ. Mechaniac started spinning on the spot, but Sir Killalot pinned it against the wall with his claw, then grabbed the rear spikes. Sir Killalot lifted Mechaniac up and carried it out of the CPZ, dropping in on the arena floor, but Supernova charged into the Austrian robot. Supernova quickly immobilized Mechaniac and ripped off the back armour, and the House Robots came out to attack. Cassius Chrome attacked first, and Sir Killalot got its lance into the back of Mechaniac, lifting the robot off the ground. He carried the immobilised competitor down to the flame pit, and held it over the flames. He then took it up the arena, and dropped it on the floor flipper, where it was counted out, then thrown across the arena. Sir Killalot then got his lance into the exposed internals again, causing lots of sparks as he lifted it up. Sir Killalot span Mechaniac around whilst Cassius Chrome opened the pit. Finally, Sir Killalot finished Mechaniac off by carrying it to the pit and dropping it in.

"...and Sir Killalot, with the final coup de grace maybe! Look at the sparks in there. Something's shorting out, oh dear oh dear! Sir Killalot, you might get your fingers burnt!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot spins Mechaniac

Sir Killalot picks up 13 Black with his lance

This battle saw the most damage Sir Killalot did to a competitor in this series, as well as being one of the rare times in later series where he used his lance to pick up competitors. Another example came in Heat D, during the battle between 13 Black and Gravity. Gravity flipped 13 Black over, then pushed it into an empty CPZ, and Sir Killalot came over. He grabbed 13 Black with his claw and picked it up, taking it out of the CPZ and spinning it around, then dropped it. He then got his lance between the rear disc and the body of the robot,and lifted the whole robot off the ground. He then lowered 13 Black back down, dropping it onto its wheels.

Sir Killalot holds Mighty Mouse over the flame pit

Although his claw was mostly used in later series to pick up competitors instead of the lance, this series saw a number of exceptions. In the Heat Final of Heat J. Thermidor 2 rammed Mighty Mouse into the top arena wall near his CPZ, and having lost its ability to turn, Mighty Mouse was driving back and forth, and reversed into his CPZ. Sir Killalot pinned Mighty Mouse against the wall, blocked its escape from the CPZ as it tried reversing, then got his lance under Mighty Mouse's top roll bar. He used the lance to pick Mighty Mouse off the ground and carried it across the arena, holding it over the flame pit, then drove to the arena centre. He spun around with Mighty Mouse, tossing it aside, causing one of its ears to fall off.

"We have caught a little mouse in our trap, and I hope it dosen't get squished!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot carries Mighty Mouse

Sir Killalot carries R.O.C.S. to the Drop Zone with his lance

He also used his lance in Round 2 of Heat N. Spawn Again flipped ROCS over, Sir Killalot used his lance to hook the frame of ROCS and lift it up, then carried it to the Drop Zone, spinning it a little with the drill. However, he used his claw to push ROCS into the pit.

Sir Killalot lifts up Atomic with his lance

In Semi-Final 2, Atomic became stuck on its back in its battle with Typhoon 2, and one of the rear panels fell open after a number of hits from Typhoon 2's spinner. After Refbot counted Atomic out, Sir Killalot used his lance on the back of Atomic, getting the lance into the exposed internals, then used his lance to pick Atomic up. Sir Killalot carried Atomic up the arena and dropped it on the floor flipper, after its back panel came loose.

"The innards exposed of Atomic, and here's our resident house surgeon, to get into those innards, Sir Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot gets his lance into the back of Atomic

Still, most times where Sir Killalot picked up competitors, he used his claw, such as when he picked up Leveller 2, spun it around, and held it over the flame pit.

As usual, Sir Killalot was regularly used to commit mercy killings on beaten competitors. Sometimes, he used his claw to carry robots to the hazards, such as when he grabbed Iron-Awe 2.1 by the axe and dragged it to the Drop Zone, and when he picked up Crushtacean and carried it to the floor flipper, and on other occasions he bulldozed them into the arena hazards, such as when he pushed Mayhem onto the floor flipper, using his claw to line it up without picking it up, and when he rammed Scraptosaur onto the Drop Zone. In Semi-Final B, he picked up Thermidor 2 after it was counted out, carried it to the flame pit and dropped it on the flames, then pushed it up the arena in reverse to the floor flipper.

The tattered remains of Mini-Maul

Sir Killalot was very busy during the Featherweight Championship, being used in all four battles. In the first melee, he was used alongside the heaviest House Robot Mr. Psycho. Growler was also used in this battle, making it one of the only times that three House Robots (discounting Refbot) were used in one battle since Extreme 1. He came out of his CPZ, driving towards some of the competitors, but when Cygnus X3 drove behind him, he reversed, pushing it into his CPZ, though it quickly drove out of the CPZ. Later in the battle, he left his CPZ again and drove on top of Mini-Maul's spike, but became stuck. He tried reversing, but could only spin in circles as Mini-Maul was caught under one of his tracks. He pushed Mini-Maul up to the top of the arena, and was able to reverse off it, leaving it smashed.

"What was that? What on Earth was that? Whatever it was is no more! Look in the background, there's nothing left!"
— Jonathan Pearce on the damage done to Mini-Maul by Sir Killalot

He then went after the immobilised competitors, first picking up the overturned Cygnus X3 with his claw and placing it on the floor flipper. He also bulldozed G2 onto the floor flipper, and the two featherweights were thrown together, with G2 being thrown out of the arena.

Bernard nudges the rear of Sir Killalot

In the second heat, he pushed Typhoon Cadet onto the floor flipper, and later pushed Mammoth into the pit, and finally pushed Typhoon Cadet into the pit. As he pushed Typhoon Cadet, Bernard chased after him and rammed into his back, much to the amusement of Jonathan Pearce. In some battles, Sir Killalot was seen with Typhoon Cadet's flag on top of him.

"Bernard... Don't think about taking on Sir Killalot... He's pushing Sir Killalot! Bernard was trying to push Sir Killalot into the Pit! That's like an ant pushing an elephant!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Bernard tries to push Sir Killalot

In the Final, he picked up Rampage 2 with his claw by the roll bars after it was counted out, and took it to the floor flipper, which threw it out of the arena.

Sir Killalot frees Roobarb from Tiberius 3's crusher

Sir Killalot broke the rules on a number of occasions across the most series. In the Round 2 of Heat A battle between Roobarb and Tiberius 3, Tiberius 3 crushed into the top of Roobarb and lifted the robot up, but Roobarb became caught on the crusher, and Tiberius 3 could not move due to the weight of Roobarb, only being able to turn around on the spot. Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ and pushed against Roobarb as Tiberius 3 tried lowering Roobarb, which succeeded in freeing Roobarb.

Sir Killalot presses the pit release button

Towards the end of the Heat Final of Heat L, Sir Killalot came out of his CPZ, despite the fact that neither competitor had been counted out, to open the pit. He then reversed up the middle of the arena, driving close to the two competitors.

Sir Killalot out of his CPZ in the middle of the Heat Final

In the Heat Final of Heat M, Robochicken and Tough as Nails were fighting at the top of the arena, close to an empty CPZ, and Sir Killalot left his CPZ and drove up the arena. Robochicken pushed Tough as Nails towards the CPZ, and though Tough as Nails turned to stay out of the CPZ, Sir Killalot blocked its path. He reversed, allowing the competitors to continue fighting, but did not return to a CPZ, instead waiting in between the two CPZs, and Tough as Nails briefly drove into him as it got away from Robochicken.

Sir Killalot picks up Bigger Brother with his claw

During a Round 1 melee in Heat O, Sir Killalot picked up Bigger Brother with his claw, despite the fact it was fully mobile. First, Bigger Brother was ramming U.R.O. into Sgt. Bash's CPZ, and flipped it against the wall. As it did so, it drove into the CPZ itself. Sir Killalot came into the CPZ and pushed the two competitors out Despite the fact Bigger Brother was still mobile, whereas U.R.O. was immobile, Sir Killalot grabbed Bigger Brother with his claw and lifted it up, then dropped it to the floor. Later in the battle, Bigger Brother was fighting Colossus, which had been flipped over and counted out, before being righted again. Sir Killalot was driving after Colossus, and Bigger Brother accidentally drove into him. Sir Killalot got his claw around the flipper and picked Bigger Brother up, carrying it back and forth, before dropping it on Colossus.

The House Robots show no mercy to Micro Mute

Sir Killalot's most controversial moment in this series however was the Middleweight Melee in Heat M. Micro Mute was immobilised by Matilda, and Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw and pushed it against the top wall. Having ripped off part of the armour, Sir Killalot picked up Micro Mute again and took it to Matilda, forcing it into her flywheel repeatedly, ripping up the back end. Adam Emmett was disgusted by the excessive amount of damage, walking out of the control booth. Sir Killalot carried it down the arena and dropped it in the pit.

"Well, it is a beaten machine, it is in the arena, and once it is beaten the House Robots can cause damage, and Adam looks most upset. Terrible damage sustained by Micro Mute, out; the crowd love it, the team doesn't."
— Jonathan Pearce, as Adam Emmett turns his back on Micro Mute's Featherweight heat

After the battle, Jeremy Honcox spoke to Jayne Middlemiss, reiterating how long the robot had taken to build and the team's anger at the damage done to it by the House Robots.

Jayne Middlemiss: "How long did that take you to do?"
Jeremy Honcox: "Well, over 3 years."
Jayne Middlemiss: "3 years, and they've ripped it apart in 5 minutes. They're not very nice, the House Robots, are they?"
Jeremy Honcox: "No, and that's not a quick fix either."
— Post-battle interview

Gravity flips Sir Killalot

A number of competitors were brave enough to take one Sir Killalot across the series. In Round 2 of Heat D, during the battle between Gravity and 13 Black, Sir Killalot was pushing 13 Black away from the CPZ, and Gravity charged at 13 Black, but Sir Killalot was pushing 13 Black, so Gravity got under his claw arm. Gravity tried to flip Sir Killalot instead, but only managed to lift him a little

Kat 3 is flipped up on Sir Killalot by Bulldog Breed

In the Heat Final of Heat K, Bulldog Breed flipped Kat 3 on its side, pushed it to Sir Killalot's CPZ, and flipped it up on Sir Killalot, with Kat 3 landing on his head.

"Sir Killalot, with all the reflexes of a dodo, has only just realised to be honest."
— Jonathan Pearce as Bulldog Breed thrusts Kat 3 up and over Sir Killalot

Iron-Awe 2.1 tussles with Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot's "eyes", having been knocked out by Iron-Awe 2.1

Iron Awe took on Sir Killalot in Round 1 of Heat O. Towards the end of the battle, Sir Killalot and Sgt. Bash came out of their CPZs and attacked the competitors, with Sir Killalot attacking Hammerhead 2, and Sgt. Bash attacking Xenomorph. As Sir Killalot pushed Hammerhead 2 and Xenomorph, Iron Awe 2.1 got its flipper under Sir Killalot's claw arm and flipped him. Sir Killalot changed targets and attacked Iron-Awe 2.1, driving at its front and pushing it, but Iron-Awe 2.1 fired its axe at Sir Killalot, hitting his head and knocking out the lights for his eyes. Sir Killalot reversed away for the rest of the battle. It got its flipper under Sir Killalot and flipped him a little, then axed his head, knocking out eyes.

Ripper's attack leaves Shunt hanging off Sir Killalot. Note that Sir Killalot's breastplate has fallen off

Ripper is finally pitted by Sir Killalot

In the next Heat, Ripper took on the House Robots after quickly flipping Daisy-Cutter over. It started by trying flip Shunt, but couldn't get him over despite flipping him up three times. Sir Killalot rushed over to defend his fellow House Robot, pinning Ripper against the wall. Sir Killalot used his lance to lift Ripper a little, and reversed. Ripper tried to get away, but Sir Killalot pushed it against the bottom arena wall, keeping it pinned there whilst Shunt opened the pit. Sir Killalot pushed Ripper out of the CPZ, and Ripper drove across the arena, but Sir Killalot drove after it, and pushed it onto the flame pit. Ripper reversed off the flame pit, then went back after the House Robots flipping Refbot up on his back. The other House Robots intervened, with Shunt lifting and axing Ripper, and Sir Killalot pushing Refbot away from Ripper. However, as he did so, Sir Killalot knocked Refbot onto his side, causing several small parts to fall off Refbot. Sir Killalot reversed, but backed into Shunt, and one of his arms became caught on his fellow House Robot, and Ripper took advantage, flipping Shunt on his side. Shunt's axe was caught under Sir Killalot's helmet, and Sir Killalot reversed to the top arena wall to separate them. However, his breast plate fell off. Sir Killalot chased Ripper, eventually catching it and pushing it into pit

"Should they have been dancing with death in this fashion? Taking on the House Robots when you should be thinking of a Heat Final? Is that wise? ... It looks pensive now, and almost sheepish, don't you think? "Oops, have I made a mistake? Have I pushed the patience of the House Robots too far?""
— Jonathan Pearce

X-Terminator attacks Sir Killalot with its flywheel

The part of Sir Killalot that X-Terminator ripped off

X-Terminator ripped off part of Sir Killalot's lance arm during the Grand Final. During the playoff with Tornado, Tornado rammed X-Terminator into a CPZ, and Sir Killalot came over to the CPZ to attack. However, as he blocked X-Terminator's escape, X-Terminator turned, hitting the arm with its flywheel, ripping part of it off

"That's a trophy they'll want to take home with them!"
— Jonathan Pearce as X-Terminator rips off part of Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot reversed to try and pin X-Terminator against the wall, but as he did so, he reversed into Matilda's flywheel, causing sparks.

Storm 2 pushes Supernova into Sir Killalot

The damage caused to Sir Killalot by Storm 2 and Supernova's combined attack

The most notable attack on Sir Killalot in this series came in Heat I, where Storm 2 rammed Supernova into him, spinning-disc first, breaking one of his tracks and damaging the drive wheels. Sir Killalot reversed, causing the whole track to fall off. This led to the most expensive repair job for a House Robot ever.

"Supernova appeared to be having trouble in the middle of the arena, and in the hotel the night before I'd been saying how great it would be to use Supernova to de-track Sir Killalot. It was too good an opportunity to miss - Supernova was sitting in the arena, pointing at Sir K and Storm II was in the idea position to connect one with the other. I scuttled Storm II around the back of Supernova and gave a good blast on the throttle. Supernova scorched down the side of Sir Killalot and in the process took off a track, the drive wheel for the track (which was just totally obliterated) and two of the idler wheels. ... Its also worth noting that the damage caused to Sir Killalot was the most expensive damage ever caused to a house robot in the history of the series - and also put him out of commission for filming for the rest of the day. So our apologies to Chris Reynolds who looked after the house robots :o(, we did get a bit of the track as a souvenir though ! They did get him back up and running later with a big round of applause from all around at the time !"
— The Storm 2 website on the attack on Sir Killalot https://web.archive.org/web/20140618100030/http://www.teamstorm.com/storm2/heati.htm

Sir Killalot becomes stuck on Mighty Mouse's discs

Sir Killalot had some humorous moments across the series. In the Heat Final of Heat J, Mighty Mouse drove into his lance whilst evading Thermidor 2. Sir Killalot turned around as Mighty Mouse drove into the CPZ, but Mighty Mouse reversed out of the CPZ before Sir Killalot could attack.

"This is taunting Sir Killalot! He'll get ya if you stay in there... no he won't! This is brilliant stuff!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Mighty Mouse escapes Sir Killalot

Mighty Mouse reversed across the arena to the CPZ on the opposite side, but Sir Killalot chased after it, and caught Mighty Mouse as it drove out of the CPZ. As Mighty Mouse tried to drive away, Sir Killalot pushed against it, driving on top of the rear discs. Mighty Mouse could not get out from under Sir Killalot, and Sir Killalot tried reversing off of Mighty Mouse, but instead pulled Mighty Mouse back with it as it reversed. Sir Killalot drove back and forth, but could not get off of Mighty Mouse, so Sir Killalot pushed it against the wall. Using his claw to push down against the wall, Sir Killalot was able to lift his front off of Mighty Mouse and reverse free of Mighty Mouse.

"After dodging just about everything we could throw at them, Mighty Mouse and Trevor Wright, now caught in the clutches, right underneath Sir Killalot, and squeezed against the angle grinder! Somewhere in there is a mouse. There it is! I saw a mouse, where? There, without a prayer!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot pins Mighty Mouse against the angle grinder

Sir Killalot with Typhoon Cadet's 870 flag, during the battle between Tornado and Gravity

Sir Killalot had Typhoon Cadet's flag on top of his helmet in the Middleweight Melee in Heat M, and in the Semi-Final 1 battle between Tornado and Gravity.

Like in Extreme 1, Sir Killalot was not used in the House Robot Rebellion, meaning he was not used in either of the House Robot Rebellions in the UK Series, despite being used in all three of the House Robot Rebellions in the US Series. His last appearance of the original series came in the Semi-Final of the Third World Championship between Storm 2 and Tough as Nails, but he was not involved in the battle.

"Mr Psycho and Sir Killalot, goodness me, the heavyweights! You wouldn't want to be the meat in the sandwich made by those two House Robots..."
— Jonathan Pearce at the start of the battle

Series 8[]

Sir Killalot was first unofficially confirmed by Dara Ó Briain over Twitter, calling him 'bigger and better' and 'on steroids'. It wasn't until February 24th when the teaser for Sir Killalot appeared. Like the other returning House Robots, Sir Killalot has been rebuilt from the ground up, heavier than before and upgraded to compete with modern competitors.

Sir Killalot holds a car door in Meet the House Robots

Before the first episode of the reboot, Sir Killalot was featured in Meet the House Robots, which reintroduced the House Robots for new audiences. Clips from the original series, including a clip from Series 2 of Sir Killalot holding Mortis with his claw. The new Sir Killalot was then revealed, with his statistics being shown, and he was shown running over and crushing a car door, then holding it aloft.

Terrorhurtz presses Carbide against Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot made his first appearance in the new series during the battle between Terrorhurtz and Carbide in the Head-to-Heads stage of Heat 1, having been absent from the first two melees. During the battle, Terrorhurtz rammed Carbide into him, and Sir Killalot pushed Carbide onto the flame pit, just beside his CPZ. Carbide lost mobility, and was unable to get off the flame pit, so Sir Killalot drove around the flame pit and pushed Carbide into the arena centre.


After not being used in the Head to Head battle between Behemoth and Nuts, though he did not see much involvement in the battles. He was not involved in the battle Behemoth and Terrorhurtz, then in the battle between Carbide and Nuts, his only involvement was a brief moment where Carbide sent Nuts spinning towards him using its spinning bar, and Sir Killalot pushed Nuts onto the flame pit, but quickly pushed it off. As Sir Killalot pushed Nuts away, he nearly drove onto the flame pit himself, but quickly reversed.

He then appeared in the last two Head-to-Heads and the Heat Final, but not involved in any of the battles, apart from a brief moment in the battle between Terrorhurtz and Nuts, where Terrorhurtz knocked of Nuts' flail, then pushed its towards his CPZ. Having less control after losing its flail ring, Nuts accidentally drove into the CPZ, but as Sir Killalot tried to grab it, Nuts quickly got away.


In Heat 2, Sir Killalot was not used until the Head-to-Heads battle between M.R. Speed Squared and Foxic, the sixth battle of the episode. Foxic drove under Dead Metal to try and push the House Robot, but became stuck under one of Dead Metal's grabbing arms, so Sir Killlalot came across the arena, and pushed Foxic out from under the arm using his claw.

He was also used in the battle between M.R. Speed Squared and Shockwave, where Shockwave pushed M.R. Speed Squared into his CPZ a couple of times, and in the Heat Final, where he was not involved in the battle.

Heat 3 saw Sir Killalot's first appearance in a melee during the reboot. He was used in the second melee, but was not involved in the battle.

Sir Killalot immobilises King B Remix

During the TR2 and King B Remix battle, TR2 flipped King B Remix onto Sir Killalot's claw. Although it quickly fell off, it accidentally turned into the CPZ, whilst TR2 rushed off to open the pit. Sir Killalot grabbed hold of King B Remix's front and lifted it up, turned it around and dropped it on the flame pit, immobilising it.

"Not the flame pit, please! That's cruel! That's horrible! I'll tell you what, we love it!"
— Jonathan Pearce

Big Nipper is held by Sir Killalot

Sir Killalot is caught via his lance on the side wall while tangling with Big Nipper

The next battle, between Big Nipper and Dantomkia, proved to be a very eventful one for Sir Killalot, asDantomkia shoved Big Nipper into his CPZ multiple times. The first time, Sir Killalot pinned Big Nipper against the wall with his claw, only to push it away from the wall, allowing it to escape. However, Dantomkia pushed Big Nipper back into the CPZ, and this time Sir Killalot grabbed Big Nipper by its spinner and picked it up, dropping it on the flame pit. Later in the battle, Dantomkia pushed Big Nipper into the CPZ again, straight into Sir Killalot, but despite Sir Killalot pushing it towards the wall, Big Nipper was able to escape. However, Dantomkia caught it as it got away, and rammed it into the wall in the CPZ. Sir Killalot pinned it against the wall, but as he rammed Big Nipper, he got his own lance stuck in the arena wall, leaving him trapped for the rest of the match, despite trying to free himself by reversing and pushing down against the wall with the lance.

"Oh man! You're in a jam! You're stuck onto the arena wall, Sir Killalot! Wham, bam, you need to get out of that jam!"
— Jonathan Pearce as Sir Killalot traps himself in the arena wall

Heat 4 was a relatively quiet Heat for Sir Killalot, despite being used in 4 of the 9 battles, as he was only involved in one of them. In the Head-to-Heads battle between Eruption and Storm 2, Storm 2 rammed Eruption against the arena wall in Sir Killalot's CPZ, but in doing so, drov into the CPZ as well. Sir Killalot pushed Storm 2 away from Eruption using his claw, then forced it onto the flame pit, though Storm 2 quickly got off. He later pushed Storm 2 and Eruption away when they were fighting by his CPZ.

In Heat 5, Sir Killalot had some controversial moments. In the Head-to-Head battle betwen Gabriel and Ironside3, Sir Killalot broke the rules, attacking Gabriel when it was not in the CPZ. Ironside3 hit Gabriel with its spinner, knocking it towards the CPZ. Sir Killalot rushed to the edge of the CPZ expectantly, but Gabriel landed just outside of the CPZ. Despite that, Sir Killalot drove over the edge of his CPZ, and used his claw and lance to grab Gabriel, getting Gabriel's axe under his lance, and pushed Gabriel onto the flame pit.

"Killalot has Gabriel in its grip. And suddenly, it looks like a giant, white, dying swan."
— Jonathan Pearce

Gabriel could not get away from Sir Killalot, so Sir Killalot pulled it back, turned it around and lifted it up with his lance. Gabriel was then able to spin away.

Sir Killalot uses his claw to free Gabriel from the flame pit

Later in the same battle, Gabriel's axehead became caught in the grille of the flame pit, trapping the robot. Sir Killalot lifted the axe with his claw to free Gabriel.

Sir Killalot helps Ironside3

During the battle between Ironside3 and Pulsar, Sir Killalot inadvertently dropped Ironside3 back onto its wheels when it was unable to self-right. Pulsar tossed Ironside3 over using its spinning drum, and Ironside3's srimech failed to work. Pulsar rammed it into Sir Killalot's CPZ, and Sir Killalot grabbed it with his claw as it tried to self-right, but as he picked it up, Ironside3 slipped out of his grip, landing back on its wheels. Ironside3 was able to continue battling, eventually backing Pulsar into the pit, but falling in as well. However, the judges ruled that it had been immobile for more than 10 seconds whilst unable to self-right, so Pulsar won the battle regardless.


Battle of the Stars[]

Sir Killalot in a promotional image for Battle of the Stars

Sir Killalot returned for the ongoing ninth series. As with the other House Robots, he also appeared in Robot Wars: Battle of the Stars, where promotional materials saw him bursting out of a Christmas present and wearing a Santa's hat, in keeping with the Christmas theme of the specials.

Sir Killalot carries JAR by the hammer. Note the fire extinguisher (bottom-right) which fell out of JAR

In Episode 1, Sir Killalot grabbed JAR by the hammer and carried it around the arena after it became immobilised during its Head-to-Head battle against The Cat. As he paraded it around the arena, one of JAR’s CO2 canisters fell out of its chassis as it was left suspended in his claw.

Sir Killalot grabs and carries Arena Cleaner

Later on, Sir Killalot's claw was damaged by The Cat's disc after it drove into him during its battle against Interstellar: MML. He pushed The Cat towards the wall, where it became immobilised. In the Grand Final, he picked The Cat up and held it over the Flame Pit following its immobilisation by Arena Cleaner, before spinning it around in his claw and throwing it into the wall. The victorious Arena Cleaner then attempted to attack Sir Killalot, which compelled him to pick Arena Cleaner up and pit the Episode 1 champion.

In Episode 2, Sir Killalot first pinned Dee against the wall and carried it towards the pit after its four-second immobilisation by Kadeena Machina. In other matches won by Kadeena Machina, Sir Killalot picked Soldier Ant up and dumped it in the trench, its first out-of-the-arena attack since Extreme Series 2, and held Robo Savage over the fire at the end of the Grand Final.

Series 9[]

Sir Killalot appeared in a teaser trailer for Series 9, uploaded on 10th February 2017.[17] The teaser showed him and the other House Robots destroying household appliances, with Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" playing in the background.

— Jonathan Pearce wittily introduces Sir Killalot during Heat 3

Sir Killalot's first appearance in the main competition of Series 9 came in the Head-to-Head battle between Rapid and Aftershock, while he also added further punishment to the beaten Sabretooth in the Heat Final, as he spun around and threw it aside after roasting it over the flame pit. Off-screen, Sir Killalot had inflicted similar misery upon Sabretooth in the second round.

Sir Killalot roasts Cobra

Sir Killalot was involved in the first battle of Heat 2, and made his presence known as he picked up Cobra and held it over the Flame Pit after it was flipped into the CPZ.

Sir Killalot drops Foxic into the pit in an untelevised moment

Sir Killalot spins M.R. Speed Squared around

Sir Killalot's main involvement in his Group Battle in Heat 3 was edited out of the TV broadcast, as he first submitted Expulsion to the Floor Flipper, before dropping Foxic into the pit after cease had been called. A clip of the latter was still used in a promotional trailer for Series 9, however.[18] Later in the same heat, Sir Killalot pulled off his trademark sit and spin technique with M.R. Speed Squared and threw it across the arena.

Sir Killalot holds Pulsar over the Flame Pit

Heat 4 was a busy one for Sir Killalot as he appeared in six battles and made use of his claw on multiple occasions by torching Pulsar and Supernova over the Flame Pit in Head-to-Head battles against Ironside3, before subjecting Pulsar to more punishment in the Heat Final by holding it in place for Shunt to axe.

"And in the arena, the only House Robot the Apollo boys haven't managed to flip: Sir Killalot."
— Jonathan Pearce before Apollo's first Head-to-Head battle

Sir Killalot toasts Apollo over the Flame Pit

After flipping all of the House Robots bar Sir Killalot in its Series 8 title win, emphasis was on Apollo to complete the job in Series 9 by toppling The King of the House Robots in Heat 5. As part of the anticipated rivalry, Sir Killalot appeared in every battle that Apollo featured in bar its Group Battle.

Sir Killalot is lifted up by Apollo

Sir Killalot was able to carry out the first moment of note between the two, as, after Carbide had knocked Apollo into submission during its first Head-to-Head battle, Sir Killalot was able to hold the beaten machine over the Flame Pit. Apollo's next battle against Coyote saw it attempt to flip Sir Killalot on two occasions, but it only managed to lift the House Robot up before being forced to retreat, as Sir Killalot and Dead Metal then chased it around the arena.

Marc Dermott: "Run away! Run away! They're chasing you!"
Jonathan Pearce: "Yes! Run away or you're going to get crushed!"
— Apollo is sent on the back foot by the House Robots

Sir Killalot holds Coyote above the flames

Away from his tussle with Apollo, Sir Killalot also played a part in Coyote's demise against Carbide, where he held it over the Flame Pit before Carbide came in to finish Coyote off.

A Rogue Sir Killalot sets his sights on Apollo

In Apollo's last Head-to-Head against Crackers 'n' Smash, it activated the Arena Tyre, which sent Sir Killalot into the arena to chase after Apollo for most of the permitted 10 seconds, before Apollo attempted to attack the rear of the House Robot as he moved back into his CPZ.

Sir Killalot then appeared in Apollo's final battle of the heat - the Heat Final. Apollo was defeated by Carbide once more, which allowed Sir Killalot to have the last laugh as he carried out additional punishment to Apollo again by moving it onto the Flame Pit.

"I'm afraid, Apollo, everything you get now... mwahahahaha! You deserve!"
— Jonathan Pearce as the House Robots exact revenge of Apollo

The House Robots punish the new champion

Sir Killalot made appearances in five battles in the Grand Final, with his most notable moment taking place in the championship deciding fight. As Sir Killalot went in on the beaten Eruption, Carbide attacked the House Robot. This lead to both Sir Killalot and Shunt tagging up to attack the new champion, with Sir Killalot picking Carbide up before Shunt crashed it into the arena side gate.

Series 10[]

"The crème de la crème of carnage: Sir Killalot!"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces Sir Killalot before Behemoth vs. The Swarm

Sir Killalot grabs hold of Apocalypse

Sir Killalot appeared five times in Heat 1. His first appearance came in the second Group Battle of Heat 1, which involved Apollo, Apocalypse, and The Swarm. He made use of the Flame Pit on two occasions during the battle, as he roasted Pinza from The Swarm and Apocalypse on the arena hazard.

Sir Killalot pinches Rubber Duck late on

Other highlights from Heat 1 included being called into Rogue House Robot mode during the Robot Redemption battle between Donald Thump and The Swarm, as well as grabbing hold of Rubber Duck from The Swarm in the remaining seconds of their loss to Behemoth, then roasting and throwing it.

Not aired on the televised broadcast was Apollo trying to flip Sir Killalot in its Group Battle, with Sir Killalot almost toppling twice before getting stuck on Apollo's wedge. Sir Killalot was shoved across the arena by Apollo's 22hp drive before Team MAD were told to stop.

"I hope they don't charge overtime, because it's Shunt and Sir Killalot again!"
— Jonathan Pearce in Heat 2

Gabriel 2's mace, snapped in half

Sir Killalot on top of Crackers

As Sir Killalot was one of the House Robots with the best defence against spinners, Sir Killalot made six appearances in Heat 2. After Gabriel 2 had been immobilised in its fight against Aftershock, Sir Killalot completely sliced away its mace polearm, and would later comically sit himself on top of Crackers, during Crackers 'n' Smash's battle against Big Nipper.

Sir Killalot pits Apex

Despite only making one appearance in Heat 3, Sir Killalot's involvement was still notable, as Apex spectacularly ripped itself apart against Track-tion in the Robot Redemption round. After Apex's body was violently thrown into his CPZ, Sir Killalot pitted it, while one of the Lexan panels of the arena itself was left shattered by the impact made after Apex's weapon crashed into it.

Sir Killalot toasts one half of The Kegs

Sir Killalot was sent rogue by The Kegs during its battle with Tauron and Iron-Awe 6 during Heat 4, and so it pressured all three robots. Later in the same battle, Sir Killalot swung the same half of The Kegs into the Arena Tyre, opening the pit, before also being required to free Iron-Awe 6 and Tauron - with the two machines stuck together.

Sir Killalot's claw, notably warped after a hit from Hobgoblin

Ultimately, Sir Killalot moved Tauron onto some debris, immobilising it. In the battle between The Kegs and Concussion, Sir Killalot held one of The Kegs over the flame pit. Androne 4000 also frequently pushed Tauron into Sir Killalot in another battle, with Sir Killalot separating the two when they became stuck together.

Sir Killalot's only notable involvement in Heat 5 saw him on the receiving end of damage, as Hobgoblin's egg-beater weapon buckled the House Robot's claw.

John Reid: "No! No, no, no, no! No! That’s not right! That’s not right!"
Jonathan Pearce: "It isn’t right, John Reid. It’s brutal, but them’s the rules, son! Get on with it! And... I think Sir Killalot’s been gentle!"
— Sir Killalot puts Terrorhurtz in danger before releasing it

Sir Killalot is attacked by Thor

Sir Killalot was entrusted with plenty of responsibility in the Grand Final - first appearing in the 10 Robot Rumble, where he was attacked by Thor, before attempting in vain to drop Terrorhurtz over the arena gate, late into the battle.

Sir Killalot dangles Terrorhurtz over the entry gate

Aside from this, Sir Killalot's most notable moment came in the first Group Battle of the Grand Final, where he slipped Nuts 2 onto the Flame Pit after being called into action by Rogue House Robot mode. He also appeared in the championship decider itself between Carbide and Eruption - something which maintained Sir Killalot's run of appearing in the title fight for every series of the reboot. This also extended his overall run to four consecutive appearances in championship fights, which began when he appeared in the Series 7 final between Typhoon 2 and Storm 2.

Sir Killalot is very nearly toppled by Apollo

Sir Killalot then appeared in the World Series. His most notable moment in Episode 1 came during the captains' fight at the end of the show, as Apollo attempted to flip the House Robot after beating Diotoir. Despite coming close, the Series 8 champion was unable to overturn Sir Killalot with any of its three attempted flips - preserving Sir Killalot's status as the only House Robot never to be flipped.

Sir Killalot damages Weber

In Episode 2, Sir Killalot's biggest role came during the fight against Concussion and Weber, as he knocked off one of Weber's tyres. The House Robot then pitted the beaten Russian machine, before also pitting Concussion along with it.

US Season 1[]

Sir Killalot's nosedive

During the House Robot Rebellion of the US series, Sir Killalot entered the arena to the song Ride of the Valkyries, looking for revenge after Matilda and Shunt had been beaten. He proceeded to pick up Silver Box but just before putting it into the pit, he overbalanced and Tricerabot came behind him and knocked him over, causing him to drop Silver Box into the pit, but Sir Killalot was then left suspended on his front next to the pit until time ran out, with the remaining three competitors trying to push him. What wasn't shown on television was Tricerabot actually succeeding in pitting Sir Killalot.

Sir Killalot attacks Run Away

Sir Killalot played an active role in the Tag Team Terror, first punishing Rosie the Riveter for entering the battle without an official tag by picking it up, and tossed it. Refbot red carded him for it, but he came out again and push the flipped Matilda back onto her wheels and attacked Tricerabot and swung him around in the same battle. In the other first-round battle, Run Away was displaying a dominant performance over Joker, but without any provocation, Sir Killalot interfered and paraded Run Away around the arena, eventually overturning and disabling it, and almost throwing it out of the arena, but placed it on the Floor Flipper. When the battle was sent to a Judges' decision, Sir Killalot's attacks on Run Away were deemed unfair, and so it won the battle alongside its partner General Chompsalot.

US Season 2[]

In Heat B he pushed The Bat in the Pit who was supposedly immobilized. But Medusa Oblongotta was immobilized first, and The Bat advanced to the second round with Rocky-Bot-Boa. However, what wasn't acknowledged was that Sir Killalot drove over the flame jet and caught fire for the fifth time. In Heat C, Sir Killalot attacked Unibite for no reason and did his spin trick and threw it across the arena, and did the same trick to Psycho Chicken in Heat D, and tried to burn it on the Flame Pit. In the House Robot Rebellion, he attacked Paul Bunyan, who wasn't counted out yet but also lifted Sgt. Bash in the process. Then Sgt. Bash tore Paul Bunyan's spinning axes off and Sir Killalot dumped Paul Bunyan out of the arena. In the Final, he entered the arena and came at Snookums first. But when he picked up Snookums, Shunt was caught on him for a second. Sir Killalot spun Snookums around and threw it across the arena twice. He then turned his attention to Snake Bite and after damaging Snake Bite's armour, performed his spin trick on it as well. After Snookums was crushed by an organ in the Drop Zone, Sir Killalot grabbed the damaged Snake Bite and dumped it into the pit along with some pieces of the organ which meant the House Robots were the winners.

Nickelodeon[]

Sir Killalot (renamed Sir K) made numerous appearances throughout the one-off series Nickelodeon Robot Wars, being seen in at least one battle per episode. In the first round of the US Championship, he initially played a minor part in pushing an immobilised Ninjitsu across the arena after it had been thrown by the Floor Flipper. Sir K proceeded to crush, lift and carry Phantasm in his jaws following its loss to Probophobia, eventually dropping it onto the Drop Zone square. He dealt further attacks to Phantasm in the Bonus Battle, eventually leaving Phantasm on the Drop Zone square to have an assortment of sports equipment be dropped onto it. In the US Championship final, Sir K grabbed and carried Probophobia by its lifting weapon, eventually pitting the would-be runner-up after it had been counted out.

Sir K drops Ming 3

Sir K played a significant role in the International Tag Team final. Initially, along with Sgt. Bash, he attacked both Ming 3 and Rick in a CPZ when they collaborated against an overturned Revolutionist. Sir K dragged, lifted and carried Ming 3 away by its left axle before dropping it, an attack which resulted in Ming 3 becoming immobilised on one side. Later on in the same battle, Sir K pinned Rick against the wall before picking up and dropping the UK representative out of the arena. However, the Judges ruled Sir K’s attack on Rick as an ‘illegal ejection’, resulting in Rick and Ming 3 being declared the winners of the International Tag Team Terror.

Sir K pits both competitors after 'cease' is called

In Episode 3, Sir K made one appearance in the Vengeance battle between Bunny Attack and Hoot. During the battle, he repeatedly left his CPZ to attack both competitors, eventually grabbing and cutting Bunny Attack’s hammer in half with his jaws. After 'cease' had been called, Sir K proceeded to push both competitors into the pit; despite this, and the damage he inflicted to its hammer, Bunny Attack would win the battle via an audience vote.

Sir K drops Squirmin Vermin over the wall during the House Robot Rebellion

Sir K was next seen in the Challenge Belt battle between Tut Tut and Rosie the Riveter 2, shown in Episode 4, where he briefly approached Rosie the Riveter while outside of his CPZ. At the end of the same episode, he also appeared in the House Robot Rebellion, where he entered the arena mid-battle to join Shunt and Dead Metal. Following Shunt’s earlier attacks on Squirmin Vermin, Sir K grabbed and paraded the yellow loanerbot in his pincer, before proceeding to dump it out of the arena. Sir K then attacked Humdrum, pinning it against the wall before crushing its side and lifting it. Sir K carried and placed Humdrum over the Drop Zone, where it had pieces of scrap metal dropped onto it; he, Shunt and Dead Metal emerged as victors of the Rebellion.

In Episode 5, Sir K was present for all four battles, initially appearing in the opening Mayhem battle between The Revolutionist, Rigby and Diskotek. He grabbed, pushed and lifted Diskotek over the Floor Flipper shortly after its immobilisation, before dropping it. Sir K attacked Diskotek again after it briefly regained mobility, before proceeding to place it and Rigby onto the Drop Zone. He also briefly attacked Joker following its count-out in the Vengeance battle against Xylon, and Probophobia in the closing stages of its Challenge Belt battle against Tut Tut. During the Ultimate Mayhem, Sir K picked up an immobile Revolutionist and turned it over, shortly before the Team LOGICOM machine was thrown by the Floor Flipper. He proceeded to grab and carry an overturned Vert-I-Go by its flipping arm, eventually pitting it alongside The Revolutionist, which was pitted at the same time by Sgt. Bash.

Sir K made his final Nickelodeon appearances in the first two rounds of the Annihilator; in the first round, he dragged and spun Techno Trousers around shortly after its elimination from the battle. Despite moving between CPZs and brushing with Bunny Attack in the second round, Sir K would not play a major part in this battle.

Dutch Series 1[]

"Killalot tries to help, but meanwhile he breaks the tail off of Alien Destructor! I don’t know what the judges will say of that… Killalot got his souvenir!"

Sir Killalot drops Bamm Bamm out of the arena

During the battle between Twisted Metal and Alien Destructor (a match close enough to reach a split Judges' decision), Sir Killalot caused damage to the loser Alien Destructor after clipping off its swinging tail using the Jaws of Life. Sir Killalot also performed the only out-of-the-arena attack in Dutch Series 1 when he dropped Bamm Bamm out of the arena following its Grand Final loss to Lizzard. Also in the Grand Final, he illegally attacked Botwork before Refbot could count it out and received a yellow card from Refbot. Sir Killalot also dueled with Project One during its Losers' melee in Heat D, sustaining a number of axe hits despite being able to push it around freely.

" Killalot is just standing around and the robots don’t seem to be going at each other, so I guess we call the House Robots in. Please can something happen in this battle. I actually think that against our Sir Killalot, Project One is putting up some resistance."
— Eric Corton while Sir Killalot fights off Project One (translated from Dutch)

Dutch Series 2[]

Vortex Inducer is snapped in two

During an Eliminator in Heat E of Dutch Robot Wars Series 2 between Vortex Inducer and Scarab, Sir Killalot cut the immobilised Vortex Inducer in half with his pincers, cutting through the thin frame behind the robot's vertical spinner. Sir Killalot then dumped the larger half of Vortex Inducer out of the arena.

German Series[]

Sir Killalot burns Absolut Krankhaft

During Heat A, Sir Killalot picked up a defeated Junkyard Queen and carried it straight into the spinning flywheel of Matilda, putting the German machine's tyre directly in the path of the House Robot's weapon.

In Heat B, when Absolut Krankhaft was defeated by Tsunami and Black Hole, Sir Killalot had a long period to play with the beaten machine, holding it over the flame pit, placing it on the floor flipper and finally pitting it. Delldog also bounced off Sir Killalot in its Round 1 battle, putting it near to the pit that it was ultimately pushed into.

Sir Killalot pinches Kill Paterson during The One Show's Robot Wars segment

On July 21st, 2016, Sir Killalot and the rest of the house robots appeared on BBC's The One Show, to promote Series 8 of Robot Wars. They battled three remote controlled cars piloted by the cast of The Rebel. Sir Killalot flattened all three cars, and won the battle for the House Robots.

Sir Killalot in TomSka's video

On August 26th, 2016, YouTube sketch comedian TomSka uploaded a short video, The Robot Wars (later retitled as simply Robot Wars), to promote the Series 8 Grand Final, starring the Series 8 version of Sir Killalot. During the video, Sir Killalot (referred to as "A Freakin' Giant Evil Laser Firing Robot") was seen attacking TomSka, Eddie Bowley and Elliot Gough by firing lasers at them, while the trio attempted to thwart his attacks by adopting a variety of disguises (Bowley wearing a false moustache, Gough confronting him naked, etc.). Sir Killalot backed upon seeing Gough, and crushed a wooden plank in two when Gough and Bowley confronted him wearing cardboard boxes and acting like humanoid 'robots'. He was eventually defeated after getting vaporised by a "bloomin' bird", which then turned on Gough, Bowley and TomSka.

The House Robots confront the Cybermen in the What If Robots Replaced Teachers? promo

Since the start of the rebooted series, Sir Killalot and the other House Robots have made appearances in promotional videos for the BBC's Make It Digital campaign and micro: bit computer. In Sir Killalot vs Hex micro:bit, initially released in 2016, he cuts a micro:bit buggy in half with his claw; the video itself was promoted by BBC Teach's Twitter page in 2017.[19] Along with Matilda and Dead Metal, Sir Killalot also appears prominently in the YouTube promo What If Robots Replaced Teachers? as one of several robots running a high school in place of human staff. He is seen 'expelling' a pair of disruptive Cybermen at the end of the promo, and is credited onscreen as 'Head Prefect'.[20] Sir Killalot was also used to promote The Asian Network Breakfast Show, broadcast by the BBC Asian Network[21], and 'took a selfie' for Children in Need[22].

Trivia[]

  • Sir Killalot is notably known as Sir K. in Nickelodeon Robot Wars, but this is not in fact the only instance he has been known by that name. He was frequently called that in the Robot Wars Magazine, and once during Robot Wars: Arenas of Destruction. In the Grand Champions edit of Series 4, his "KillCam" graphic was edited to "K-Cam".
  • According to Andrew Marchant, oil was put on Sir Killalot's tracks to make him turn easier.
  • In the original series, Sir Killalot had a "tattoo" of a fish on his left arm. This was drawn by his operator, Colin Tilley, who had a similar tattoo on his left arm[23].
  • Despite being very large, and also being dubbed The King of the House Robots, Sir Killalot was just the second heaviest house robot between Series 6 and 7, weighing only about two thirds as much as Mr. Psycho.
  • Sir Killalot is the only House Robot that has never been flipped, although he has toppled over on several occasions, due to being top-heavy. The most notable was when he fell over whilst carrying Groundhog, the only time Sir Killalot had been overturned. Many boasted they could flip Sir Killalot, possibly because
