Xylon was an invertible wedge shaped robot from California. It had a front hinged flipper which could be used to self right, as well as side skirts. It was not a successful performer, losing in Round 1 of Extreme Warriors: Season 2 and the Nickelodeon Robot Wars Mayhem competition, although it did beat the Joker in a Vengeance battle. The design of the flipper was claimed to be unique by commentator Stefan Frank, despite older robots such as Cassius and Firestorm using front hinged flippers.
"Xylon" is the Greek word for "wood".
Xylon was up against Buzz and Tyranabot in Round 1. Both machines attacked Xylon at the start, and then Xylon drove over the low riding Buzz, whose lifter flipped Xylon on its side as one of the self-righters was opened. Xylon did self-right against the wall, where Matilda came in, but it broke free. However that incident led to the judges eliminating Xylon.
Xylon competed in the Mayhem against Rosie The Riveter 2 and Propeller-Head, but lost as its flipper was torn apart by Propeller-Head. As a result, Team Chico demanded a vengeance match against a spinner to prove it could beat one. The challenge was quickly taken up by Joker. At the start of the battle, both machines pushed each other. Joker pushed Xylon into Shunt, who flipped it twice. However, Xylon slammed into Joker, who broke down because its link fell out. Xylon had finally beaten a spinner.
