Top Ten Most Overrated BattlebotsBattlebots is a very popular TV show about fighting robots. Some of these robots are talked about as if they're some of the best (But not necessarily) by the announcers and fans but don't really perform well in fights
The Top Ten
Chris Rose talks about this team as if they have been dominating, even when they were sore losers because of a late hit, and have only won one fight in the last two years - TheInsomniac
Chomp won a lot of fights and got into the quarterfinals in 2017 because of lucky shots. The design is top-heavy, and the weapon is flimsy and small. - TheInsomniac
Fire shouldn't be your main weapon in a robot fighting competition - TheInsomniac
Bombshell does have a pretty powerful disc spinner, but it's design means if it is flipped, it's pretty much done for immediately - TheInsomniac
It's... Ok, I guess - TheInsomniac
It was said to be one of the best before getting ripped open and it's guts ripped out in the first minute of it's first fight of this season - TheInsomniac
This bot is a pretty small cannon with one shot, which in my opinion, is kind of pathetic - TheInsomniac
Brutus isn't bad, but it has a similar design to a lot of other bots, and is talked about the most out of all of them, despite being smaller - TheInsomniac
Skorpios won one fight this year and suddenly it's the main event and unbeatable. It barely won to ice wave, but only because their spinner broke - TheInsomniac
Huge is a great powerful bot, but it has not faced any horizontal disc spinners this year that could potentially destroy it's wheels - TheInsomniac
I know I initially said Witch Doctor was overhyped and rarely delivered, but after seeing it's performance in the Battlebots Amazon Re-Mars challenge I may have to retract my earlier statement.
My god, what a performance. Having seen it's previous seasons I would have never believed it was capable of such feats, and against two of the elite bots nontheless. Initially I didn't see it as a potential series winner, but in the latest series I think it could be a real dark horse for the giant nut. So colour me impressed Witch Doctor. - SuperSonic17
Witch Doctor reminds me of the early seasons of Razer or Killerhurtz from Robot Wars. Very popular amongst audiences and raved about by the presenters as being one of the elite, but their career record is not good. They lost most of their fights and the best bot they've beaten is Blacksmith. - SuperSonic17
As much as I want to agree with you, (since I am ashamed of my selfish comments on your list), I have to disagree. I personally believe Witch Doctor has a good chance of winning the championship. Though I should add Blacksmith, I forgot about them. - TheInsomniac
This might just be because I really don't like robot wars, but I think that maybe they should have been in the last chance rumble instead of the tournament.
This one is only slightly overrated, as Bronco is a fantastic robot, with a hugely powerful flipper, and one of the most seasoned teams. Unlike most people however I don't see this as a championship winning robot. It's biggest problem is maneuverability (it's so long it struggles to turn), and despite this it always seems to get seeded above Bite Force (even though that bot is better in my eyes).
Look, Bronco is a great robot and Battlebots best flipper bot, but put it against some of the UK's best flippers (such as Eruption or Apollo), they'd just run rings around it. - SuperSonic17
