Greatest Robot Wars Robots of All Time
Tornado was no match for Razer. They met 5 times-Razer had two easy victories. Then that stupid cage came and although Razer destroyed Tornado's wheel weapon, the judges said Tornado won. The fourth match came and Razer lifted the cage but then dropped tornado. They shoved Tornado to the pit but the cage stopped them from falling in-This is against the rules- the pit was meant to be a way of beating ANY opponent but in the circumstance it wasn't big enough. Tornado took the title that day. The fifth match- Razer had a hook to carry tornado and dangle them over the pit vertically meaning they could be dropped in and they would fit. Razor's motor burn out on the way to the pit, but the judges gave the victory for Razer as they had truly overcome the cage problem, but Razer's team were fair and just and gave the victory away to Tornado as they were immobilised though the burned motor
Chaos 2 serves as a role model on the use of flippers in Robot Wars. A robot of many firsts. The first and only robot in Robot Wars history to have consecutively won and defended the UK Championship. Twice UK Champion. First robot to throw his opponent out of the arena. His predecessor, Chaos, was the first and only robot to defeat Dead Metal in the Tug of War trial.
Chaos was truly what Chaos 2's opponents experienced whenever they collided. An excellent driver, George Francis, a pioneer in Robot Wars. Had he made improvements to Chaos 2 or introduced Chaos 3 or 4 in the following series, he would've snagged more championships under his belt.
Chaos 2 may have only lost 11 fights, but as I remember correctly, some of these fights were particularly memorable. Take "Flipper Frenzy," for example. Chaos 2 was unlucky to lose, especially after nearly flipping Sgt. Bash out of the arena. Just half a minute later, it rebounded off Matilda's flywheel and ended up being stuck against the wall.
Against "Cheats" (referring only to the robot), Tornado defeated Chaos 2 twice by ramming them, weaponless, into the house robots' corner. In the first fight, Tornado had technically lost under similar circumstances to Chaos 2's loss in "Flipper Frenzy," being stuck on a wall. What did Refbot do? Did he leave Tornado stuck? No, he freed him. So, Chaos 2 wasn't freed, but Tornado was.
In the fight against "Foreign Opponents," George Francis, the robot builder and controller, flipped a robot and then pressed reverse instead of forwards. He admitted his mistake afterward and drove Chaos 2 into the pit.
Then there was "The Bigger Brother Fight," where it was neck and neck until Chaos 2 was flipped over and ended up like a duckling on its back after running out of CO2. In the Series 6 fight against Dantomkia, Chaos 2 had a dominant start before getting stuck in a corner. Because of this, it was then flipped out of the arena.
Those losses were unlucky, but the loss in "The Northern Annihilator" was something you just couldn't write. These fights are all available on video somewhere.
It may have not won a wars, but when ever it worked, Hypno-Disc dominated. It even got to the point where everyone ganged up on Hypno-Disc due to how powerful it was. If Hypno-Disc had not been suffering any problems, it would have beat Chaos 2.
Sure, Chaos 2 flipped robots out of arenas. Sure, Razer had the giant claw. But they just beat robots. Hypno-Disc literally ripped the poor things to shreds.
Hypno handled well with a basic, but effective design. I hope Hypno-Disc or at least a real Hypno-Disc 2 come to the new Robot Wars. If they do, they have got to win a trophy this time!
So destructive, so powerful, so original. This robot has a great disc spinner, beating most participants. Seeing how this is in 3rd place makes me feel devastated. I mean, this robot must beat a flipper bot. How can it not? Chaos 2 was cheap by just flipping it and leaving it there in (series 2? ).
By far the most feared and destructive robot in Robot Wars, them demolitions, particularly on Atomic and Splinter will NEVER be forgotten by many RW fans. If only Hypno had srimech v Chaos 2 it could've been a different ending! It was considered that Ian Lewis (Razer team VC) did not want to send Razer in against Hypnodisc, had they fought. Frightening, brutal robot!
S2 Winners. One of the originals, legends. Had the best driver in Kim Davies and was also the one machine which came out on top against Shunt in Sumo Basho.
With a great driver too.
"Charity entry robot with a brilliant driver. Piggy back to the pit!
Greatest robot to come from Wales. Series 2 champions and arguably the best driver in the history of RW in Kim Davies.
I saw it take out all of its opponents and then take out the house robots sir killalot and dead metal. That time it was only stopped because it was double teamed by matilda and sgt bash.
Panic attack reminds me of tornado-no proper weapons just speed and power which allows them to bash others into the pit and PPZ...But firestorm took out panic attack and therefore could probably take out Tornado
Came 3rd three times and Graham Bone was the best driver in robot wars. The best robot never to win the competition.
Razer's biggest rival, arguably the only other robot that could have conceivably beat any potential opponent, and definitely the only other one that could rightfully be called number one.
A clever robot that used different techniques to beat its opponents
Some say their anti-razer cage was cheating but it followed the rules
It beat razer, twice!
He is a epic robot and huge!
He should be number 1
It's best fight was when it flipped Behemoth and Stinger out of the arena together. Mightily impressive by the lobster.
Cute lobster, won flipper frenzy as it wasn't getting into any trouble
It broke the record for quickest battle ever by flipping dantomkia out of the area in a record time(6 seconds! ) In the semi finals!
So powerful flipper!
Every "axebot" that competed prior to this bot was essentially a glorified pick-axe, this bot's predecessor included. Then Terrorhurtz appears on the scene and shows not only how to do a proper axe-bot, it also does it truly brilliantly, along with having one of the best drivers in the business in John Reid. Yes, he drove Killerhurtz in the pit that one time, but when he can drive, he does so excellently.
The only real axe weapon on a robot, shame they missed out on the 7th wars
Big axe = big hits
The only reason it lost to bronco was because they chose a three sided fork (or trident) instead of a 2 sided fork, so if it chose a 2 sided fork it would've gone in between the pneumatic flipper and Bronco would've had no weapon to use!
Took on three house robots and came out on top. Such an astonishing victory.
Underrated. One of the best of all time.
First champion of Robot Wars, took home bronze in the second, and was still mopping the floor with others in the third (granted, as Beast of Bodmin, but they were essentially the same robot)
Destroys everyone who goes up against it. In series 8 and 9, none of it's fights lasted more than minute minuite due to the fact it tore the other robot apart like wet paper.
Razer and all the old legends are good but carbide is unstoppable. Series 9 winner and 8 and 10 runners up. come on carbide totally annhiliate Razer chaos 2 and hypnodisc
Powerful, too powerful
Came on to the scene in series 6 in which they flipped the one and only chaos two out of the arena. By far the unluckiest robot during the wars and when you look at there record they flipped behmomth, hypnodisc and panic attack all out of the arena! No other robot has done that to established robots like those.
Devastating flipper and very strong armour. One of the best not to win the championship. Came close to winning it on one occasion.
The only robot to flip the deadly duo of Chaos 2 and Hypnodisc out of the arena. Was once most feared robot in the Wars.
It may of had an unreliable drive system (Which in my opinion just added to the choas of this chaotic robot) But it's famous flip was revolutionary and has not yet been beaten in height to this day.
His flipper is the most powerful ever seen on Robot Wars by far! If it's drive system was more reliable it would beat Choas 2 easy.
The strength of the Cheese's flipping power is second only to Chaos 2, in my opinion.
Should've easily been Series 7 champion. Such a powerful machine.
In the new blood championship they destroyed thor!
That gripper with the vertical rotating saw blade is extremely powerful
Growler proved his might when he tore up Ellie's little pink bot. A real junkyard dog.
The first one to have a self writing mechanism. I feel it really changed the game as it used to be game over for overturned robots.
Was nothing like it, they changed the whole game. Chaos 2 was just a cheap copy.
I really admire Rex
It's really sad that razer crushed her.
The first robot I was introduced to.
This robot is awesome!
"Fluffy by name, but not by nature!" - Jonathan Pearce
It tore Terrorhurtz and 101 to shreds with it's massively destructive spinning bar, and probably would've done the same to Pussycat hadn't it broken down. The spinning bar's sheer power and destructive force combined with a wicked design meant that Fluffy could shear off its opponent's armour like an orange peel. It just broke down too often in fights. Just a shame that reliability problems took its toll on the potentially formidable robot.
It could've gone on much further to the point of achieving something on the show.
Would've been a potential top 10 robot had it been more reliable.
Devastating once it got going!
This is rubbish!
Behemoth is best!
