Biwedge KillertronEdit

Can I please have some evidence of this statement? I have got nothing besides people's word that any of these failures happened. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 00:52, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Since no one can prove existence of this biwedge Killertron, I've removed the fact. I will not tolerate fan-fiction. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 23:46, 29 August 2009 (UTC)
Don't you just look back on that and groan? Considering it wasn't fanfiction at all? CrashBash (talk) 13:27, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
Look, we were all young once. Toon Ganondorf (t c) 13:42, August 13, 2016 (UTC)
Hence why I asked. Isn't it sometimes good to look back at the silly mistakes we make? CrashBash (talk) 15:04, August 13, 2016 (UTC)

Killertron 1? Edit

In the Robot Wars Extreme Guide book the page for Killertron names it as Killertron 1. Does that count as another name or shall we dismiss it as a writing error as those books do have quite a few errors in. Llamaman201 (talk) 16:25, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Most likely a writing error. We never use the name, 'robot' 1, unless it is specifically named anyway. Helloher (talk) 16:32, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
Well, unless it was a deliberate distinction between this Killertron and Killertron 2, which seem to be two completely different robots. CBFan (talk) 22:26, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Restroom AnticsEdit

Guys, this may sound stupid, but if it gets certain people to shut up about it, then great.

You may or may not know, but recently a rumour has been spread stating that Killertron wasn't allowed to enter Series 3 because the team did something in the restroom (which is never explained). I can't believe it for a second, but if anyone would be even remotely willing to look up some sources, that'd be great. CrashBash 12:52, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

Killertron 2Edit

Here's the archived link for the info on Killertron 2 I found http://web.archive.org/web/20020717182124/http://www.robotmayhem.com/forum/messages/4/6784.html?1010702407 Badnik96 (talk) 17:33, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

I found this on the archived forum, which claims Spinnertron was entered into Series 7 http://web.archive.org/web/20030821110010/http://www.robotmayhem.com/forum/messages/4/12960.html?1059849749 . Don't know how it failed to qualify, but good to know something about it.
"I have made this aluminium wedge shape with a large go kart wheel on each side driven by two Bosh 750 motors. I have a flywheel on top at an angle of about 30 degrees where I have mounted a wand shape axe. I just spun it up and it works but it is way out of balance, the machine took off sideways: this should be fun to drive around. I have both wheels on the same shaft and one wheel slips around the shaft to make the robot spin. I may go for red this time."
— Richard Broad on Spinnertron

If anyone has any more information, or a picture, that would be much appreciated. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 19:15, April 7, 2015 (UTC)

Pink bot Edit

Pink slaphappy machine

Okay this robot is slightly annoying as no one seems to know a single thing about it. It's a pink robot with a little flipper/axe/thing on the side. It failed to qualify for series 6 and after looking at an "advert" on the Killertron website Spinnertron had a similar look with the weaponry. Now I doubt highly that this is correct but what if Killertron attempted to qualify for series 6 with some sort of Spinnertron prototype or something. That, or this is a pink robot that just failed to qualify for S6 and there is no information about it. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 15:16, September 17, 2015 (UTC)

It has been revealed that Spinnertron was built but it never left the workshop. It was used to destroy stuff though. I can see why the pink bot would make you think Spinnertron (I'd think it was Spinnertron) but it isn't Spinnertron and the bot remains unnamed. Another note, Gabriel Plantagenet purchased Hit Man.

Just read what just been edited.Shame we don't know what the "Pink bot" is, I kinda wanna know, I find it interesting as the man next to it looks familiar to one of Killertrons's team member but sadly his face is hidden so we don't know. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 14:34, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
Upon enlarging Pink bot I found it had some sort of cartoonish dog head on it. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:36, December 12, 2015 (UTC)

InconsistencyEdit

So a trivia point notes that Killertron was one of three overhead weapons to reach the finals; along with Terrorhurtz and Bodyhammer. But the similarities section below states that Stinger also featured an overhead axe weapon. The similarities are a little dubious themselves but I wasn't entirely sure of what to remove so I thought I'd check with anyone else here first. RelicRaider (talk) 10:58, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

I'd say remove the similarities with Stinger, Stinger was a thwackbot whilst Killertron, Terrorhurtz and Bodyhammer wasn't. Sam (BAZINGA) 12:40, October 4, 2015 (UTC)

The Infamous Extreme 1 Mayhem Edit

Now, I'm sure everyone on the Wiki is aware of Killertron's infamous last battle where Killalot came out of nowhere and pit it, even though it was mobile. However, having watched the battle again recently, I noticed something that might change the way we look at this battle.

When Refbot separates Splinter and Aggrobot (At around 8:03 in this video), notice how Killertron seems to stop moving after reversing away. Then, as Dead Metal attacks the immobile Aggrobot, you can see that Killertron is only moving in circles. After that, we barely see Killertron moving at all, apart from when Killalot is pushing it, before Killalot dumps it into the pit.

Could it be that Killertron broke down at about the same time Aggrobot did? If it had done, and had stayed immobile for thirty seconds, then it would have been counted as immobilised even if it wasn't counted out by Refbot, therefore Killalot would not have been breaking the rules by pitting it!

Now, I don't know why Refbot didn't count it out, but if Killertron had been immobile for thirty seconds before it was pitted, that would explain why the Judges didn't just discount the attack and judge the battle until before Killalot attacked, which is what they did in other instances where House Robots attacked, such as Ming 3 vs Terrorhurtz, the Nickelodeon Tag Team, Steel Avenger's Mayhem etc.

If this was the case, the production team should have made this clearer by including a few more shots of Killertron not moving, then have Craig Charles explain why Killalot attacked Killertron. But still, could it be that one of the most infamous controversies on the show wasn't actually a controversy at all, just a case of poor editing? Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 14:39, December 10, 2015 (UTC)

I must admit that when I watched it recently I thought Killertron was immobile. Didn't realise it was such a controversy until I read this wiki page again last week or so. RavenclawDBS (MCKA DevilboyScooby) 19:32, December 10, 2015 (UTC)
I must admit I thought Splinter looked a bit immobile as well. With Killertron however I still a little unsure but I can see where you're coming from. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:33, December 12, 2015 (UTC)
The house bots helped Splinter when it got flipped sideways. If they hadn';t interefered, Killertron would be the only mobile robot. RA2; aka Resetti's Replicas. (My Talk) 05:37, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

True, Splinter was righted by Refbot, but that was because Splinter and Aggrobot were stuck together. One of Refbot's major functions was to break up robots that had become stuck together, or if one was being pinned down for too long. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 13:12, December 13, 2015 (UTC)

Main quote Edit

Each page is supposed to have a quote at the top, and I was going to add one to this article, but I wasn't sure which of these two to use. They are both from Heat a of Series 1. Which one do you think is better, or do you have a better suggestion?

"Don't let the lurid flourescent paintwork fool you! Weighing in at 72.2 kilos, powered by 2 24 volt wheelchair motors and featuring a mighty pick axe. Killertron, bound to tickle its opponents more than pink!"
— Jonathan Pearce introduces Killertron

[1]

"...with that awful flourescent pink, and the dreadful pick axe. Drivers Abdul and Richard, with that sort of weaponry, and colouring, I'd go and see a psychiatrist if I were you!"
— Jonathan Pearce in Series 1

Introduction, provided you fix the typo in opponents. ToastUltimatum 12:45, April 13, 2016 (UTC)
First one for the intro, the second one could start up the Series 1 description, though. CrashBash (talk) 12:51, April 13, 2016 (UTC)
First much better for the main quote, second one could be used for the Series 1 description as Crashbash said.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 14:29, April 13, 2016 (UTC)
I'll add the quotes then. Drop Zone mk2 (talk) 08:28, April 14, 2016 (UTC)
