Tut Tut was a loanerbot that participated in the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors as well as Nickelodeon Robot Wars. It was lent to Chris Harriman of Team Raptor after their Season 1 entry, Cyclone, was too badly damaged to compete in the Robot Rebellion and Tag Team Terror competitions, and subsequently received upgrades from Harriman himself. It won the Tag Team Terror alongside partners Drillzilla, and reached the final of the Robot Rebellion.
Tut Tut's name is derived from the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun, and a pun on the interjection "tut tut!"
Tut Tut was a pyramid-shaped robot decorated with various Egyptian symbols and armed with an overhead pneumatic axe. While under the control of Chris Harriman, Harriman carried out extensive modifications to the axe's pneumatic system, which increased its power and transformed Tut Tut's performance, making it a much more competitive machine than the other loanerbots.
In Season 1, the robot had a much more reflective metallic look to it, with sparkling gold added to it. The robot was mostly unchanged for the Nickelodeon Robot Wars, save for the armor, which was less reflective, looking more white, scuffed up, and far less metallic.
- "We're here to annihilate anybody who gets in our way"
- — Chris Harriman explaining the robot
Tut Tut first participated in the Robot Rebellion, where it faced fellow loanerbot The Green House in Round 1. Tut Tut's axe got stuck in the floor at the start, before Green House lifted it. Tut Tut kept getting stuck in the floor, before axing into its opponent's pexiglass shell. Tut Tut dragged Green House into Dead Metal's corner. Tut Tut then dragged Green House into the pit button, but didn't manage to pit it. Tut Tut got his axe stuck into the floor again, before succeeding in pitting its opponent.
- "Reminded me a little bit of Sharon Stone, just stabbing over and over again!"
- — Mick Foley
In the tournament final, Tut Tut confronted Shunt, who lifted it up repeatedly. All four robots ganged up on Shunt, before Tricerabot flipped Matilda. Whilst Tricerabot rammed Shunt and pressed the pit button, Sir Killalot entered the arena. He attacked Siver Box, and pitted it, but fell in front of the pit. Tut Tut and Tricerabot tried to pit Killalot, but Killalot just stayed out of the pit. No winner was called, but it was deemed a moral win for the competitors.
- "Backstage everyone said it couldn't be done, and the House Robots couldn't be approached. I consider this to be a great upset."
- — Mick Foley after the battle
Tut Tut also participated in the Tag Team Terror alongside Drillzilla. The two robots fought team mates Tricerabot and Rosie The Riveter. Tut Tut started by attacking Tricerabot, but landed no meaningful attacks with its axe. It tagged Drillzilla who pushed Tricerabot on the flames. Rosie Riveter came in to try and free its teammate, but Sir Killalot attacked, and was reprimanded. All four robots were in the centre of the arena, attacking each other. Drillzilla pitted Tricerabot while Tut Tut prevented its escape, and the match ended shortly afterwards. Although Rosie the Riveter was still mobile, Tut Tut and Drillzilla comfortably won the Judges' decision.
In the final, Tut Tut and Drillzilla faced Run Away and General Chompsalot. At the start Drillzilla attacked Run Away, before pushing it into the CPZs of Shunt and Sergeant Bash. Tut Tut came in to attack Run Away, who tagged Chompsalot. Tut Tut tagged Drillzilla, who shoved Chompsalot into the pit. Tut Tut then slammed its axed into the side of Run Away, and on another charge, tipped it on its side. Run Away could not self-right, so Tut Tut and Drillzilla were declared Tag Team Champions.
Tut Tut competed for the Challenge Belt, taking on current holders, the Nickelodeon United States Champion Tyranabot. It managed to land several blows onto Tyranabot's crushing arm, but Tyranabot retaliated by pushing Tut Tut into Dead Metal, who buried its saw into Tut Tut's side. Tut Tut then buried its axe into Tyranabot's electronics and Tyranabot was immobilized by these attacks. Tut Tut was declared the winner and new holder of the Challenge Belt.
In its next fight, Tut Tut faced off against Rosie the Riveter. It tried to hit Rosie the Riveter but missed and was pushed into the arena wall. Tut Tut then axed the top of Rosie the Riveter and dragged it onto the floor flipper but Rosie the Riveter charged in and got underneath Tut Tut, carrying it into Shunt. Tut Tut escaped and then axed Rosie the Riveter several times before Cease was called. Although the Judges arrived at a split decision, Tut Tut won the battle on damage.
Its third and final match was against Probophobia. The match started out very slow with Probophobia moving its lifting arms up and Tut Tut hitting Probophobia with its axe. Probophobia then got under Tut Tut and pushed it into the wall. Tut Tut then buried its axe into Probophobia, causing smoke to pour out of it. Tut Tut pressed the Pit Button but Probophobia was able to use its lifting forks to roll away from the Pit. Tut Tut then hit Probophobia with the axe again and dragged it into Sir Killalot just as Cease was called. Since Probophobia had been immobilized for most of the match, Tut Tut was declared the winner and got to take the Challenge Belt home.
