"We're down to our last few battles of this tournament. Only one will remain alive and become our Battlebots champion. Ankle Biter and Sabotage battle it out to face Shreds-A-Lot for the championship title. This is what every tournament winds down into," began Sean.

 

"The suspense is killing me, Sean. I am very excited and have been since this tournament began. Let's get right to our first fight. Ankle Biter is a two-wheeled bot with a saw inside its wedge. Sabotage is also a wedge bot but it has a flipper that can also act as a clamp. Here's how those two got here: Ankle Biter took on Bad Attitude and put him out after Bad Attitude got caught in the spike strip. Then, Ankle Biter took out Diesector after Don's bot ended up on its side. His next opponent was Vlad II and he also put this bot on its side. Sabotage on the other hand pulled off the 29-21 Judges Decision to advance. Then he took on the vicious Nightmare where it won 23 to 17. Then, he fought Twin Paradox, where the flipper bot knocked Twin Paradox out in under 2 minutes," replied Bil.

 

"I'm as excited as you are, Bil, let's get the introductions," continued Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: While he has the ability to teach others to fly, he has the will to make others die, he's SABOTAGE! And in the blue square: It's the deadliest robot you've ever seen, it's the creature lurking in the shadows on Halloween and it's the robot that will cut open your spleen. Here is ANKLE BITER!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Matt.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered John.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with the attack on Ankle Biter but can't get it done," reacted Sean.

 

"Ankle Biter must be careful as his bottom frame is very vulnerable to Sabotage," noted Bil.

 

"There's the first successful flip for Sabotage and Ankle Biter looks to be in big trouble, Bil," remarked Sean.

 

"There isn't much touching the ground, Sean. Ankle Biter's on his back end now! Poor Ankle Biter, it seems that luck just isn't with him very often when he fights. Sean," concluded Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the blue ref.

 

"Sabotage movin' on to the finals!" confirmed Bil.

"A good fight indeed now let's get the official decision," agreed Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman: The time, 52 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, SABOTAGE!" echoed Mark.

 

"Now comes the battle we always wait for, Bil. How does the championship play out? requested Sean.

 

"George Hazard created Shreds-A-Lot, whose weapons are a wedge and 3 saw blades inside it. Matt Sabotino's Sabotage has the unique flipper that can also grab opponents," answered Bil.

 

"Here we go, it's time for the introductions for this championship match," stated Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: All finalists will have to await the devastation this robot causes. Welcome SABOTAGE! And in the blue square: This behemoth has crashed and smashed his way to this point and nothing stands in his way of the championship title except one other robot. Here's SHREDS-A-LOT!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Matt.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered George.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with the early flip on Shreds-A-Lot!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"Doesn't hurt Shreds-A-Lot much, though as he can run upside down but is very vulnerable to other flips," noted Bil.

 

"Sabotage continues to dominate this fight as we see yet another toss against SAL," coninued Sean.

 

"SAL is in trouble if he can't get back over, Sean," agreed Bil.

"Well there isn't much he can do right now as Sabotage continues his punishment against SAL but appears to have stopped moving," added Sean.

 

"He's been dominating this fight, Sean. That would be a real shame to lose that way," remarked Bil.

 

"Well it wouldn't have been the first time, Bil. There goes SAL as he slams the what appears to be incapacitated Sabotage into the wall and now he's stuck there," analyzed Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" shouted the red ref.

"So that's it, Shreds-A-Lot is our champion of Battlebots!" confirmed Sean.

 

"Kudos to George Hazard, well done my friend! Now let's get the final decision, commended Bil.

 

"Ladies and gentleman: the time, 56 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and Battlebots champion.....the blue square, SHREDS-A-LOT!" repeated Mark.

 

"Congratulations, George, you've won the tournament! Now Mark Beiro has your award," added Sean.

 

"Presenting, the Battlebots champion of the world, SHREDS-A-LOT! Here to accept this award is George Hazard!" announced Mark.

 

"What a season this has been. Here are the final replays. Sabotage took out Ankle Biter only to lose to our Battlebots champion Shreds-A-Lot," recapped Bil.

 

"For Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury. Thank you for being a part of our Battlebots season," concluded Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer, signing off, hoping you'll join us next season. See ya then," finished Bil.

 Season 1, Episode 15

"After tonight, the competitors for round 4 will be decided. First up, Ankle Biter goes all out against Vlad II. Next, Sabotage tries to make pancakes out of Twin Paradox. Finally, Overkill attempts to serve up his own platter of defeat for Shreds-A-Lot. Good evening and welcome to round 4 of Battlebots everyone, I'm Sean Salisbury," began Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. This it, Sean. Round 5 will be upon us after tonight," repeated Bil.

 

"Yes and we'll be that much closer to crowning a champion," agreed Sean.

 

"Let's begin with our first fight. Gage Cauchois' Vlad II features lifting forks and a righting mechanism if he happens to get flipped over. Ankle Biter was created by John McKenzie. His weapons are a wedge and a saw inside the wedge," read Bil.

 

"Let's get the introductions," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you end up waking up in the middle of the night with slashes at your feet, you'll know it's the work of ANKLE BITER! And in the blue square: He may not have the strength to take out zombies in movies, he may not have a crazy idea to find life on other planets but he does have a grudge against you because he's VLAD II!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied John.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Gage.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Ankle Biter and Vlad II slamming into one another but neither one able to take advantage of the other, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"It seems that Vlad just can't get his forks under Ankle Biter to really do anything because maybe Ankle Biter is heavier," figured Bil.

 

"Take a look at the punishment to Ankle Biter by Vlad as he is slammed into the wall and flipped over," analyzed Sean.

 

"We've never witnessed whether Ankle Biter can run upside down but it looks like he barely has enough traction on those wheels but is struggling, Sean," concluded Bil.

 

"Another big slam by Vlad II and Ankle Biter is right-side up now. Oh my goodness, Vlad II is on his side, Bil, this could be an upset by Ankle Biter," exclaimed Sean.

 

"I don't see Vlad II having any way to self-right from his side, Sean, although we never saw it happen from him, he's either landed upright or on his back," recalled Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the blue ref.

"What an upset by Ankle Biter. Now let's get the official results from Mark Beiro," remarked Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time 1 minute, 17 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and advancing to the Semi-Finals.... the red square, ANKLE BITER!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Ankle Biter moves on to the Semi-Finals while Vlad II goes home. Bil, what does our next match up look like?" asked Sean.

 

"Twin Paradox has a spinning blade as its main weapon. Its builders are Michael Neese and Skunk-Tek of Charlotte, North Carolina. Sabotage features a wedge and flipping arm. His builder is Matt Sabotino from Greenwood, Indiana," stated Bil.

 

"Thanks, Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro," continued Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you try to ask him for help in your wood-related projects, you'll become his project: Operation Destroy! Here is TWIN PARADOX! And his opponent, in the blue square: Don't count on him being your chef for breakfast. He's only here to defeat enemy robots. He's SABOTAGE!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Michael.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Matt.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with the early use of his flipper but can't get it done," began Sean.

 

"Now Sabotage gets the flip!" confirmed Bil.

"Oh, look at both robots, they both got flipped over!" shouted Sean.

"This isn't really a problem for either robot but Sabotage looks to be having trouble moving, Sean," realized Bil.

 

"That could cost him as we see Twin Paradox going after Sabotage's main weapon, his flipper," commented Sean.

 

"Twin Paradox under Sabotage! Aw, can't hang on to him, though. There he goes again! Still can't quite hold him, said Bill disappointed.

 

"Both robots back over and Twin Paradox has lost his blade and is stuck on one of the spikes in the spike strip!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"He's in real trouble if he can't free himself, Sean and it doesn't look like he will but he's trying," speculated Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match! declared the red ref.

"So Sabotage moves to the Semi-Finals to meet Ankle Biter. Let's get the final answer from Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 1 minute, 53 seconds. The winner by a knockout and advancing to the Semi-Finals.......the blue square, SABOTAGE!" announced Mark.

 

"There you have it, Sabotage advances. What about our last match, Bil?" asked Sean.

 

"Overkill was built by Christian Carleberg from North Hollywood California. Its weapons are a wedge and an overhead blade. His opponent is Shreds-A-Lot, whose builder is George Hazard from East Windsor, New Jersey and whose weapons are 3 blades inside a wedge," recalled Bil.

 

"A pleasure to have you, Bil. Now it's time for the introductions," commended Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: The only thing on his menu is victory. Welcome SHREDS-A-LOT! And in the blue square: Here is a robot that always knows how to make the cut for plays. Introducing OVERKILL!" introduced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied George.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both bots are meeting in the center of the arena as we start this bout. There's the first flip by Shreds-A-Lot but Overkill is right back over," noticed Sean.

 

"Overkill scores a blow on top of Shreds-A-Lot. Doesn't seem to have harmed Shreds-A-Lot though," noted Bil.

 

"Overkill is again tossed into the air and on his back right now with a quick self-right. Another toss by Shreds-A-Lot and there's Killsaw damage to Overkill," continued Sean.

 

"It looks like both robots are stuck now, Sean," realized Bil.

"Shreds-A-Lot seems to still be moving but I think Overkill's tires are locked with the wedge of Shreds-A-Lot, Bil. Take a look at that bar on top of Shreds-A-Lot, Bil. It seems to be damaged," analyzed Sean.

 

"Yeah, it's coming out of its holes, Sean. How about that, Overkill flipping Shreds-A-Lot!" exclaimed Bil.

 

"An impressive flip by Overkill but this match is just about done," remarked Sean.

 

"What a fight, who's moving on?" reacted Bil.

"Well Mark Beiro has the answer," answered Sean.

"The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 31-19 Judges Decision for.....the red square, Shreds-A-Lot!" declared Mark.

 

"Shreds-A-Lot moving on to the Semi-Finals! Bil, rewind the tape for us," requested Sean.

 

"With pleasure. In our opening bout, Vlad II got shot-out by Ankle Biter after getting flipped onto his side by the wedged robot. Our previous match was a fierce one until one final hit tore off Twin Paradox's blade and any remaining chances he had for victory. In our last match, Shreds-A-Lot pushed past Overkill's assault into the final slot fro the Semi-Finals," recapped Bil.

 

"For Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Sailisbury," thanked Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer, reminding you to stay tuned to next week's Battlebots episode as we close out this tournament. See ya," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 14

"Tonight we find out the last 3 robots to enter round 4. First up Dreadnaught and Twin Paradox sharpen their blades for a one-on-one showdown. Then it's a quest to find out who has the better attack between Overkill and Blade Runner. Finally, Backlash and Shreds-A-Lot fight to the end to fill the last slot. Good evening and welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Sean Salisbury and the man I show my appreciation of the sport is Bil Dwyer," began Sean.

 

"I am amped up, Sean. 3 more competitors will make their way to round 4. Let's begin with our first fight. Dreadnaught is the creation of Christian Carlberg from North Hollywood California. His weapons are a horizontal spinning blade as well as a rear wedge. Twin Paradox has his own horizontal blade and was built by Michael Neese and Skunk-Tek of Charlotte, North Carolina," added Bil.

 

"Here we go again, it's time for Mark Beiro," continued Sean.

"Introducing in the red square to my right:  Here is a bot that allows you to show everything you've got, then takes it away from you. Here is TWIN PARADOX! And his opponent, in the blue square: His destructive force tears all opponents into microscopic morsels. Please welcome DREADNAUGHT!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Michael.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! A nose-to-nose impact to start this bout. Take a look at that, Dreadnaught flipped by Twin Paradox!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"A near-miss for Dreadnaught from the Pulverizors, Sean," noted Bil.

"How about that, Dreadnaught is stuck in the Killsaw hole there, Bil," added Sean.

 

"That's not a good place to be in if you're Dreadnaught," agreed Bil.

"A generous help by Twin Paradox, which isn't necessarily the smartest thing to do if you are to win this fight. Dreadnaught looks to be in trouble again now, Bil," commented Sean.

 

"Those wheels don't look to be moving, Sean. I don't think he can move at all," concluded Bil.

 

"Looks like there's movement again from Dreadnaught and he's back in this fight," figured Sean.

 

"Dreadnaught's stuck in the Killsaw hole again, Sean!" shouted Bil.

"Not only that, Bil but one of his wheels seems to be stuck in the spike strip," stated Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the blue ref.

"So that's it for Dreadnaught, Twin Paradox advances. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 1 minute, 33 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, and advancing to round 4....the red square TWIN PARADOX!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Too bad for Dreadnaught, he was such a good robot, Bil," remarked Sean.

 

"Indeed he was, Sean. He just didn't get the luck he needed for this fight," nodded Bil.

 

"How does our second pair look?" asked Sean.

"Blade Runner is what we call a thwack bot, or in other words they spin to hit their opponents. His builder is Ilya Polyakov from Dix Hills, New York. His opponent is Overkill who has a swinging overhead blade. His builder is Christian Carleburg from North Hollywood, California," read Bil.

 

"Thanks, Bil, now lets go to Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: The only time you'll see this robot going after trees is for target practice. He spends all his real attacking on you. Welcome OVERKILL! And his opponent, in the blue square: You can dream about defeating this robot all you want, but the harsh reality is, the robot will always win! Here is BLADE RUNNER!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Christian.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Ilya.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots with a nose-to-nose attack on each other," noted Sean.

 

"Blade Runner with a big slam into the wall for Overkill, Sean and I think that's it for his back wedge," added Bil.

 

"Well he still has that blade of his. Overkill not landing many blows. This shows how hard it is to use a bot like Overkill versus a bot like Deadblow or Killerhurtz. Blade Runner with another slam for Overkill," continued Sean.

 

"There goes the blade, Sean and that also had his self-righting mechanism so if he's flipped, it's over," concluded Bil.

"There's your flip and I think this one's over," confirmed Sean.

"Come on, I wanna see some destruction for the poor robot," complained Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" shouted the blue ref.

"Aw, he couldn't do it but he's movin' on to round 4," reacted Bil.

"What a win for Overkill, huh? Now lets get the statistics from Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 2 minutes, 12 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and advancing to round 4......the red square, OVERKILL!" announced Mark.

 

"Not too bad for Christian Carlberg tonight, Bil. One of his bots is out but he still has another one moving on. How does our last pair look?" remarked Sean.

 

"Backlash is the deadly creation of Jim Smentowski. His weapon is that famous spinning wheel of death and rear wedge. Shreds-A-Lot features a wedge with 3 saw blades in the middle. His builder is George Hazard from East Windsor, New Jersey," told Bil.

 

"Time for Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you wake up with your backside bleeding, it's because you have felt the wrath of BACKLASH! And in the blue square:  Flinching even for a second will anger this robot and cause him to rip your eyes out. Here is SHREDS-A-LOT!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Jim.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered George.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! A big slam by Shreds-A-Lot! Backlash taking hits from the Pulverizors!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"Shreds-A-Lot is just relentless on Backlash, Sean. Backlash with a near-miss on the Killsaws. Another brutal slam by Shreds-A-Lot. Backlash not having his way at all in this fight," concluded Bil.

 

"Looks like this hit wedged both robots into the Spike Strip. Shreds-A-Lot struggling to get free and he does. Oh, what a hit by Shreds-A-Lot! I think Backlash is stuck there, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"Yeah, I see Backlash's wheels movin' but he doesn't seem to be going anywhere," agreed Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" shouted the red ref.

"Utter domination by Shreds-A-Lot and George Hazard. Lets find out from Mark Beiro," reacted Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 2 minutes, 11 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, and advancing to round 4.......the blue square, SHREDS-A-LOT!" confirmed Mark.

 

"What an exciting night of robot fighting. Bil, play it back for us," replied Sean.

 

"In our opening bout, Twin Paradox knocked out Dreadnaught after he slammed him into the Spike Strip. In our previous match, Overkill took out everything Blade Runner had, including victory and in our last match, Shreds-A-Lot proved to Backlash that he has the better weapons by shoving him all over the box for the eventual knockout and win," recapped Bil.

 

 "For Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," concluded Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer, telling you to stay tuned next week for the start and conclusion of round 4. See ya then!" finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 13

"The carnage continues as we move into round 3. Ankle Biter throws down with Diesector. Then Vlad II and Panic Attack get it on to prove who is better. Finally, Sabotage tries to show Minion II how robots fly. Good evening and welcome to round 3 of our Battlebots Tournament," began Sean.

 

"This is going to be an awesome set of fights, Sean," concluded Bil.

"Yes and they're only going to get better as we move closer to crowning a champion. How does our first pair match up?" replied Sean.

 

"John McKenzie's Ankle Biter is a wedge bot with a saw inside its wedge. Diesector is the sinister design of Donald Hutson from San Diego, California," read Bil.

 

"Thank you, Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," suggested Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: When you find him tearing apart your feet, you'll know you're fighting ANKLE BITER! And in the blue square: He is not here to cut open dead animals, nor is he here to go easy on opponents. In fact, he's here to destroy all opponents because he's DIESECTOR!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied John.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Donald.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Oh look at that, Ankle Biter strikes early with a flip on Diesector!" exclaimed Sean.

"Doesn't hurt Diesector, though, he's designed to handle running upside down," noted Bil.

 

"Diesector has Ankle Biter on top of him, Bil," continued Sean.

"Couldn't hold him though as Ankle Biter is back on the floor. Diesector with a slam into the spike strip for Ankle Biter," replied Bil.

 

"Oh my goodness, look at Diesector, he's on his side!" shouted Sean.

"Are you kidding me? Oh man, that is the worst position Diesector can get in since he doesn't have his hammers. It looks as if Diesector is just shy of the Killsaws, which could put him back over, giving Ankle Biter hazard points but I don't see that happening," reacted Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the blue ref.

"That's it for Diesector now lets' get the official decision from Mark Beiro," suggested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time 1 minute, 11 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, ANLKE BITER!" confirmed Mark.

 

"What a disappointment for Donald Hutson and Diesector, Bil. How does out second pair match up?" said Sean.

 

"Vlad II is the creation of Gage Cauchois from Oakland California. His weapon is a pair of lifting forks. Panic Attack also has lifting forks and was built by Kim Davis from England," analyzed Bil.

 

"As always, thanks Bil. Now let's go for the introductions," replied Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: Lurking in the red corner is the fiend responsible for the loss of many lives of opponents. Here is VLAD II! And in the blue square: Count your lucky stars if you live to face the wrath of PANIC ATTACK!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Gage.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Kim.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose to start the bout. This should be a good match, Bil," figured Sean.

 

"Vlad II doing what he does best, get under opponents and slam them into the spike strip. Panic Attack not able to get those forks under Vlad, Sean," noted Bil.

 

"That's not like Panic Attack, usually he gets under bots and flips them again and again. Vlad II takes Panic Attack to the Pulverizors. Complete domination thus far for Vlad II," concluded Sean.

 

"Two hits from the Pulverizor," counted Bil.

"Panic Attack now flips Vlad II over but Vlad self-rights with no problem. How about that, Vlad flipped by Panic Attack! We're down to the last 30 seconds now as more hits are being made but this one is going to be close," commented Sean.

 

"It was all Vlad II at the beginning but then it turned to both robots as the match ends, which is right now," agreed Bil.

 

"So who won this bout? Let's find out from Mark Beiro," suggested Sean.

"The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 22-21 decision for....the red square, VLAD II!" declared Mark.

 

"Vlad wins by a narrow decision and moves on. Bil, what does our last bout of the night hold?" asked Sean.

 

"Well it holds 2 bots, Sean. Minion II  has dual saw blades and was built by Christian Carleburg of North Hollywood California. His opponent, Sabotage was created by Matt Sabotino from Greenwood, Indiana," answered Bil.

 

"Now for the introductions with Mark Beiro," stated Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He viciously attacks all who try to oppose him and intimidate him because he's MINION II! And in the blue square: One way to find this robot is to look for the trail of disabled robots courtesy of SABOTAGE!" shouted Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Christian.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Matt.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with the early flip on Minion II! If you're Minion II you have got to avoid that flipper," noted Sean.

 

"Sabotage is relentless, that's another flip to Minion," remarked Bil.

"Minion II is on his back now but seems to be having righting problems as normally he can right himself but isn't doing so," realized Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the red ref.

"So that's it, a quick win for Sabotage. Let's get the official decision," confirmed Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time 1 minute, 59 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the blue square, SABOTAGE!" echoed Mark.

 

"Another episode comes to a close. Bil, take us through the highlights," requested Sean.

 

"Ankle Biter pulls the stunning upset over Diesector by putting the bot on his side. In a tight match, Vlad II takes home win after a brutal battle with Panic Attack. In our last match, Sabotage shows why the third time is the charm as he flips Minion II 3 times to take the win," recapped Bil.

 

"Well for Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bill Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," said Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. We leave you now with the hit of the week. See ya," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 12

"The final match ups for round 2 air tonight. T-Minus dukes it out with Blade Runner. ShoveMaster2000 battles Shreds-A-Lot and finally, Backlash rips it up with New Cruelty. Hello and welcome to the final battles for round 3, I'm Sean Salisbury and my partner next to me is Bil Dwyer," introduced Sean.

 

"This is it, after tonight, the last three slots will be filled with bots for round 3," repeated Bil.

 

"That's right, winners move on, losers go home. How does our first pair match up, Bil?" replied Sean.

 

"T-Minus is the creation of Reason Bradley and Alexander Rose from Sausalito, California. His main weapon is a flipping arm, which can toss other robots, as well as himself into the air. Blade Runner has a new design this season. He now has a back wedge and a front spinning Blade. His creator is Ilya Polyakov from Dix Hills, New York," read Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: No one has been able to face him and live to tell the tale of the deadly Battlebot known as BLADE RUNNER! And his opponent, in the blue square: No bot is untouchable, undefeatable, or unbreakable, unless in the eyes of T-MINUS!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Ilya.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Reason.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! T-Minus trying to toss Blade Runner but fails and look how his flipper is on top of Blade Runner, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"That's not good if you're T-Minus, Sean. T-Minus' only weapon is that flipper and it seems to be working against him," added Bil.

 

"T-Minus on his side now and look at the attacks being made by Blade Runner! There goes the main part of the flipper that allows it to work as Blade Runner moves T-Minus to the Pulverizors. If you're T-Minus, you need to get out of there quickly and look at that, he does but it looks like something's wrong with his flipper," continued Sean.

 

"It's on the outside of his body, Sean. Look at T-Minus, trying to use the disabled flipper as a shield but as you said earlier Sean it seems to be going against his own design as he is back on his side," replied Bil.

 

"T-Minus is in major trouble as he is again under the Pulverizors and seems to be stuck in the corner. Another piece of T-Minus' flipper gone and this time it's the part that actually allows the flipper to get underneath other bots and flip them into the air. The referee's counting T-Minus out, I don't see him getting out of there, Bil," conclued Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the blue ref.

"Blade Runner advancing to round 4. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 2 minutes, 3 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, BLADE RUNNER!" confirmed Mark.

 

"There you go, a decisive knockout win for Blade Runner. How does our second match up fair, Bil?" asked Sean.

 

"ShoveMaster2000 is the creation of George Hazard from East Windsor New Jersey, however, he's driving ShoveMaster2000 and had John McKenzie, Ankle Biter's driver, to fill in for its opponent. It's weapon is a scoop wedge. Shreds-A-Lot is also a creation from George Hazard. Its weapons are a wedge and saws inside the wedge," explained Bil. 

 

"As always, I thank you Bil now let's go to Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: This fiend awaits any foolish robot walking into his corridors. He's SHREDS-A-LOT! And his opponent, in the blue square: If you think you've seen good shoving in bulldozers, you haven't met SHOVEMASTER2000!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied George.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered John.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose for both bots. Take a look at that, ShoveMaster on his side already! Is there any traction on ShoveMaster's tires, Bil?" noted Sean.

 

"It looks like there's just barely enough tire to help him back over and back over he is. Look at that wedge of ShoveMaster, it's bent inward, Sean," added Bil.

 

"Oh my goodness, it's gone, the wedge is nearly gone! What's that going to do to ShoveMaster's driving?" questioned Sean.

 

"It looks like it's unbalanced right where that remaining foot for the wedge is attached, Sean," agreed Bil.

 

"Shreds-A-Lot dealing more punishment as we see him slamming ShoveMaster into the wall and to the Pulverizors. ShoveMaster's in trouble as he is once again on his side," continued Sean.

 

"ShoveMaster back over but with so much damage done to him, he needs a knockout or a winning Judges Decision. That's it, what a fight!" finished Bil.

 

"So who's won this? Time for the official decision," requested Sean.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 26-17 decision for....the blue square, SHREDS-A-LOT!" announced Mark.

 

"A win for Shreds-A-Lot but ShoveMaster goes home. Who's in our last match up of the night?" recapped Sean.

 

"Jim Smentowski's Backlash has the spinning wheel of death for a blade and a rear wedge. Jim is from Novato, California New Cruelty is created by Richard Stuplich from Wasaw, Wisconsin. Its weapon is what looks to be a wedge," stated Bil.

 

"It's time for the introductions," replied Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He has 4 wheel drive, a solid frame and a nasty grudge, here is NEW CRUELTY! And his opponent, in the blue square: All opponents he has beaten have been left to die in despair. Welcome BACKLASH!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Richard.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Jim.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Early punishment for Backlash by New Cruelty," noted Sean.

 

"Backlash doesn't really stand much of a chance in this bout, Sean," realized Bil.

 

"No, he doesn't as he is constantly taking damage from both the Killsaws and the Pulverizors. Backlash on the Killsaws but they didn't rise," agreed Sean.

 

"It looks like our Killsaw camera caught the Killsaws falling through the hole so they're gone, Sean. This is just complete dominance by New Cruelty," noted Bil.

 

"All Backlash can do is hope for the Judges Decision and look at New Cruelty who is stuck in the wall as the seconds wind down. So who won? Let's go to Mark Beiro," finished Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23-22 decision for...the blue square, BACKLASH!" shouted Mark.

 

"So that's it, Round 3 is now ready to begin next week. Bil take us through the highlights," recapped Sean.

 

"Blade Runner takes the win after T-Minus' own flipper breaks down. Shreads-A-Lot showed ShoveMaster2000 that he has the better design and in our last match, Backlash proved you can win without much effort," repeated Bil.

 

"For Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," concluded Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Round 3 of the tournament starts next week. We leave you now with the hit of the week. Goodnight," added Bil.

Season 1, Episode 11

"The Battlebots tournament rages on as Dreadnaught teaches Toro that Battlebots is a different sport than bull-fighting. Then the destructive Hazard hopes to make sense out of Twin Paradox. Finally, Overkill goes malicious on Deadblow. Good evening and welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Sean Salisbury and here is my partner, Bil Dwyer," began Sean.

 

"Another round of robotic destruction to delight our readers, as well as ourselves, Sean," added Bil.

 

"That's what Battlebots is all about, Bil. Letting our readers ooh and ah over the best fights. Speaking of fights, how does our first pair look?" continued Sean.

 

"Toro was created by Reason Bradley and Alexander Rose of Sausalito, California. His main weapon is a CO2 flipping arm. His opponent is Dreadnaught from Team Coolrobots' Christian Carleberg in North Hollywood, California. His weapons are a horizontal disk and rear wedge," read Bil.

 

"Thank you Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," replied Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: All who despise him are torn to pieces. Here is DREADNAUGHT! And his opponent, in the blue square: It is the phrase used in bull fights, it is Spanish for bull and it is also the Battlebot poised to leave you with many broken bones, he's TORO!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Christian.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Reason.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Toro with a pop and a miss on Dreadnaught. Toro with the first flip of the match and it seemed to have done something to his flipper," noted Sean.

 

"It looks to be stuck in the air, Sean. Toro with damage from the Killsaws, which seem to have helped Toro's flipper fall back into place," agreed Bil.

 

"Toro with another flip on Dreadnaught. Looks to me like Toro's weapon is once again incapacitated, Bil, remarked Sean.

 

"That's not good when it's his only weapon. Toro got another flip on Dreadnaught," commented Bil.

 


"A punishing blow by Dreadnaught and I think it was so punishing that both bots lost their weapons completely," reacted Sean.

 

"Dreadnaught still has the wedge left but I'm not sure what he can do with it, Sean. Oh man, Toro's on his side, just as I say it!" exclaimed Bil.

 

"That's it for Toro since he can't do anything from his side due to his flipper out, Bil. Dreadnaught's taking Toro to the Pulverizors and the referee is now beginning Toro's countdown," finished Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" called the blue ref.

"Toro is out of the tournament so let's get the official statistics from Mark Beiro," recapped Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 15 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square DREADNAUGHT!" confirmed Mark.

 

"So there you have it, Dreadnaught moves to round 3. How do our next competitors match up, Bil?" questioned Sean.

 

"Twin Paradox has interchangeable weapons but has decided to use the blade for this match and is invertible. His builder is Michael Neese of Team Skunk-Tek of Charlotte, North Carolina. Hazard is the creation of Tony Buchignani and Dan Danick. He features a wedge and a steel spinning blade as weapons," analyzed Bil.

 

"It's that time once again, here's Mark Beiro," stated Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's a danger to all mankind, he leave a trail of destruction behind, and to all other robots he is most certainly unkind. Welcome HAZARD! And his opponent, in the blue square: Say something to him and he'll confuse the living daylights out of you. Here is TWIN PARADOX!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"We're ready," replied Tony.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Michael.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose from both bots. Hazard with the flip on Twin Paradox. Hazard with another flip on Twin Paradox," noted Sean.

 

"Not much for Twin Paradox to do against Hazard, is there?" questioned Bil.

 

"It wouldn't seem like it unless he can rip Hazard's wedge off as we see another flip by Hazard. Hazard is clearly dominating this fight, Bil. Another couple of flips by Hazard. Oh goodness me, Twin Paradox lost his disc!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"It went flying off in one piece, Sean! What a hit by Hazard!" agreed Bil.

 

"Hazard now underneath Twin Paradox and drives him to the Pulverizors. Oh my goodness, Hazard's lost his own blade! Take a look at that, Bil, Twin Paradox flipped Hazard over!" shouted Sean.

 

"It was looking so promising for Hazard, wasn't it Sean?" asked Bil.

"Yes it was, especially with all the flips Hazard did and the trip to the Pulverizor," agreed Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" requested the red ref.

"Twin Paradox, a come from behind victory!" concluded Bil.

"Now let's get the official decision with Mark Beiro," said Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 2 minutes, 6 seconds. The winner, by a knock out, in the blue square, TWIN PARADOX!" confirmed Mark.

 

"What an upset by Twin Paradox. Now who are our last competitors tonight, Bil? requested Sean.

 

"Deadblow was created by Grant Imahara from Oakland California. He features a wedge and a flipper. Overkill has a wedge and a swinging knife-blade. He was built by Christian Carleberg of North Hollywood, California," recalled Bil.

 

"As always, thank you, Bil now here's Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Introducing in the red square to my right: He may be helpful in the kitchen for cutting celery and onions but he is also capable of leaving all opponents in many thin slices. Here is OVERKILL! And his opponent, in the blue square: Like a hawk to a dead carcass, this Battlebot looks for enemy robots to destroy. Introducing DEADBLOW!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Christian.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Grant.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Deadblow with the early flip on Overkill as we see Overkill get right back over," began Sean.

 

"Overkill doesn't really have anything he can use to get under Deadblow, does he, Sean?" asked Bil.

 

"He has that wedge but it doesn't seem to be very effective as Deadblow flips him again. Look at Overkill, who finally is underneath Deadblow and slams him into the wall! Deadblow continues to be on the offensive as he slams Overkill into a set of spikes in the wall," continued Sean.

 

"Both bots just took Killsaw damage, Sean," noted Bil.

"Kind of a shame for Deadblow as he was trying to avoid the Killsaws and simultaneously disable Overkill but neither one of those worked out well. A big slam into the wall by Overkill and it looks to me like Deadblow is stuck there," continued Sean.

 

"Not sure whether he can get out of there, Sean as Overkill is trying to keep him there," speculated Bil.

 

"It wasn't enough as Deadblow is free. Deadblow with yet another flip to Overkill. We're just about done with the match here and there's the buzzer. So who's won this bout? Let's go to Mark Beiro," commented Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in an 18 to 14 decision for the red square, OVERKILL!" declared Mark.

 

"Overkill takes the close 18 to 14 decision. Bil, take us through the highlights," responded Sean.

 

"Dreadnaught advances to round 3 when despite weapon failure from both bots, he manages to flip the bull onto his side for the knockout. Twin Paradox moves on after being flipped end-over-end by Hazard. In our last match, Overkill outdoes Deadblow despite the many flips he received," recapped Bil.

 

"Well for Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, until next time, I'm Sean Salisbury," concluded Sean.

"I'm Bil Dwyer. There's more destruction next week as round two continues. See you then," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 10

"The chaos in our Battlebox rages on. Vlad II shows Mechadon who's boss. Nightmare hopes to show Sabotage that his victory is only a dream. Finally, Ziggo battles Minion II. Welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Sean Salisbury," stated Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Tonight's matches look as awesome as ever, Sean," noted Bil.

 

"That's what makes Battlebots so great and why many people watch it, Bil, " explained Sean.

 

"It's also what is going to help keep the sport alive, Sean. Let's get right to our first match. Mechadon is astomp bot from the creator Mark Setrakian. Vlad II is built by Gage Cauchois from Oakland California," added Bil.

 

"As always, thank you Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro," suggested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He creeps, he crawls, he is scariest of all, he's MECHADON! And his opponent, in the blue square: Lurking in the blue corner is a deadly robot waiting to strike on enemy robots. Here is VLAD II!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Mark.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Gage.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose attack from both Vlad II and Mechadon," began Sean.

 

"There isn't much to get underneath and lift with for Vlad II, Sean," noted Bil.

 

"Those walking legs of Mechadon don't allow for Vlad to really get in and push him around, Bil. There we see Vlad with a slam into the wall for Mechadon. Vlad trying his attack again and oh, take a look at that, he's on top of Mechadon's walking legs there and is being pushed forward, landing on his back but that's no problem for Vlad II as he gets right back over. Mechadon takes damage from the Killsaws," continued Sean.

 

"Both robots flipped over, Sean!" exclaimed Bil.

"Won't matter for Vlad but I don't think Mechadon has the capabilities of self-righting from where he is, Bil, and it's too bad, especially since he's on the Killsaws, which aren't helping either. Vlad knows he's pretty much won this fight," assured Sean.


"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" shouted the red ref.

"So Vlad II moves to round 3. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," recalled Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time, 1 minute 13 seconds, the winner by a knockout, in the blue square, VLAD II!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Bil, tell us about our next pair," requested Sean.

"Nightmare is the deadly creation of Jim Smentowski from Novato, California. Sabotage has a flipper that also works a s clamp. His builder is Matt Sabotino from Greenwood, Indiana," read Bil.

 

"It's time for the introductions with Mark Beiro," stated Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you think that victory is in your future when you face this deadly Battlebot, it's not only a NIGHTMARE! And his opponent, in the blue square: Everywhere you go, you'll see this maniacal fiend screwing with other's plans. He's SABOTAGE!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Jim.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Matt.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with the early flip, tossing Nightmare into the air," noted Sean.

 

"Nightmare survived the flip, Sean, he's still on his feet!" reacted Bil.

 

"It is amazing that Nightmare lived but can he survive a second as he is tossed higher still into the air?" questioned Sean.

 

"Nightmare lived again!" repeated Bil.

"Sabotage isn't quite so lucky, Bil, he's upside down, which is fine but his flipper isn't as powerful. Nightmare taking damage from the Killsaws. If you're Sabotage, you want to get back over so you can continue to rack up the points. There he goes, back over once again is Sabotage. Sabotage with another flip but it looks like he's trying to prevent Nightmare from landing on his blade so he can right himself," continued Sean.

 

"He looks like he's going to slam Nightmare into the wall and he does," added Bil.

 

"Already a stunning performance by Sabotage as we wind down in this match, just about 30 seconds go now," noted Sean.

 

"I think it's pretty clear who's won this bout, Sean," concluded Bil.

"Let's find out from Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23 to 17 decision, for the red square, SABOTAGE!" shouted Mark.

 

"So Sabotage makes it to a spot in round 3. What does our third match up look like, Bil? asked Sean.

 

"Ziggo is a spinner created by Jonathan Ridder of San Jose, California. His opponent is Minion II, who was built by Christian Carlburg of North Hollywood, California," analyzed Bil.

 

"Time for the introductions with Mark Beiro," suggested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He has eight lives, destroys bee hives and leaves everyone else with no lives, he is ZIGGO! And his opponent, in the blue square: He tears at everyone's heads, he hides under everyone's beds and is the worst thing everyone's ever said, he's MINION II!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Jonathan.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Minion trying an early attack on Ziggo but Ziggo's dome seems to be interfering with his strategy as he tries the same move again only to once more get on top of Ziggo's dome. Ziggo on the attack for Minion II and Minion II's on his back now but is back over with no problem," commented Sean.

 

"Minion flipped again!" exclaimed Bil.

"Not the third time as somehow Minion II escapes. Ziggo seems to be taking some damage. Oh my goodness, Ziggo's dome is gone!" continued Sean.

 

"What a hit! That's it for Ziggo, Sean," concluded Bil.

"It is, Bil," agreed Sean.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the red ref.

"Ziggo out of the tournament and Minion moves on. Let's get the official statistics from Mark Beiro," added Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 1 minute 7 seconds. The winner, by a knock out, in the blue square, MINION II!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Another exciting episode has come to a close. Bil take us through the highlights," recalled Sean.

"Vlad II advances after flipping the spider bot Mechadon over and out of the tournament. Sabotage takes the judges decision after tossing Nightmare every which way to jump to round 3. In our last match, Minion II takes an explosive win after destroying Ziggo in just over a minute," recapped Bil.

 

"For Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," answered Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. There's plenty more robot carnage next week. We leave you now with the hit of the week. Goodnight," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 9

"It's the start of round 2 for our tournament. First it's a battle of the wedges between Minion and Ankle Biter. Then Diesector sees if he can take down The Devil himself. Finally, El Diablo tries to avoid defeat from Panic Attack. Welcome to round 2 of Battlebots, everyone. I'm Sean Salisbury and enjoying the carnage with me is Bil Dwyer," began Sean.

 

"Thank you, Sean. Our first pair puts two wedge bots head-to-head. Minion is a wedge with a rear fireman's saw. His builder is Christian Carleburg from North Hollywood, California. Ankle Biter also has a wedge but included in that wedge is his saw blade. He was built by John McKenzie of Ukiah, California," replied Bil.

 

"Now it's time for the introductions with Mark Beiro," continued Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: Those who have seen this maniacal Battlebot run away in fear of losing a foot. Here is ANKLE BITER! And his opponent, in the blue square: He won't come to your rescue if he finds you dead on the floor. In fact, he'll leave you in tiny shambles. Introducing MINION!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied John.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose by Ankle Biter and Minion. Minion up under Ankle Biter but Ankle Biter escapes," commented Sean.

 

"Ankle Biter seems to be having trouble getting under Minion, Sean. Minion takes Ankle Biter to the Pulverizors and Ankle Biter taking a beating!" added Bil.

 

"Oh, Minion flipped by Ankle Biter!" noted Sean.

"I certainly didn't see that coming, Sean," remarked Bil.

"It was certainly possible but I had my doubts. Minion's back on his wheels again," agreed Sean.

 

"Look at Ankle Biter! Minion nearly has him on his back end!" continued Bil.

 

"Minion unable to put Ankle Biter on his back and Ankle Biter with a big hit as we see Minion's self-righting mechanism go flying off," said Sean.

 

"Take a look at Minion's side, Sean. That hit definitely ripped open Minion's side," stated Bil.

 

"Minion on the aggressive again and he's trying to take Ankle Biter to the Pulverizors but can't seem to do it as the match ends," concluded Sean.

 

"A close match, Sean," told Bil.

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the decision," suggested Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 18 to 13 decision for the red square, ANKLE BITER!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Ankle Biter knocks Minion out of the tournament. How do our next competitors match up, Bil?" reacted Sean.

 

"Diesector is the creation of Donald Hutson from San Diego, California. His opponent is The Devil, whose builder is Zach Bieber from Monrovia, California," read Bil.

 

"Thanks a lot, Bil now let's get the intros from Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: All of his opponents are ripped open and left to die. He just does things and never says why, he's DIESECTOR! And his opponent, in the blue square: Feared by all, he has no mercy for anyone, he's THE DEVIL!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Donald.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Zach.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Diesector with a big slam to The Devil," began Sean.

 

"I don't know what good that wedge of The Devil will do to Diesector but it doesn't seem to be working as Diesector hits The Devil hard again," added Bil.

 

"A third punishing blow by Diesector!" noted Sean.

"I think it was so punishing that The Devil is out," concluded Bil.

"He is out as we can now see the innards of The Devil," confirmed Sean.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" shouted the blue ref.

"That was a sweet fight! Diesector movin' on!" recalled Bil.

"Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," suggested Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman. The time: 1 minute, 14 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and advancing to round 3: The red square, DIESECTOR!" declared Mark.

 

"What a brilliant display from Donald Hutson. How does our last match for tonight shape up?" remarked Sean.

 

"Kim Davies' Panic Attack has two electronically driven lifting forks and wedge skirts on 3 sides. El Diablo is the creation of Zach Bieber from Monrovia, California," recalled Bil.

 

"As always, thanks Bil. It's time for the introductions," replied Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: Never stay out after midnight or you'll find this behemoth roaming about and he will destroy you! Welcome PANIC ATTACK! And his opponent, in the blue square: This fiend lurks in the shadows of every corner waiting for its next victim to show. Here is EL DIABLO!" called Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Kim.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Zach.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Look at Panic Attack with the early almost flip there! El Diablo trying to get underneath but just doesn't seem to have anything to help out," noted Sean.

 

"It's those forks of Panic Attack, Sean. They're quite powerful and they're already showing El Diablo what they can do as he is nearly flipped again but Panic Attack hits him into the wall," added Bil.

 

"There goes Panic Attack with the first official flip of this match," continued Sean.

 

"El Diablo back in this now but what does he have against Panic Attack?" asked Bil.

 

"I don't know but he needs to find a weakness in Panic Attack but it may be too late as we see Panic Attack flipping him and wedging El Diablo's spinning barrel of death between the wall and the floor of the Battlebox. This looks to be it for El Diablo as he can't right himself in that position," concluded Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the blue ref.

"That's it! What a fight!" exclaimed Bil.

"Total domination by Panic Attack. Time for the official decision" suggested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time,  1 minute, 51 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and advancing to the 3rd round: The red square, PANIC ATTACK!" declared Mark.

 

"What an awesome way to open round 2. Bil, take us through the highlights," requested Sean.

 

"Ankle Biter takes out Minion after a close show down of the wedges. Diesector destroyed The Devil to move on to round 2 and in our last match, Panic Attack was too much for El Diablo and advances to the next round," recalled Bil.

 

"Well for Heidi Mark, Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr, I'm Sean Salisbury," continued Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 8

"It's the last battles to fill the remaining slots for round 2. Dr. P.A.I.N. trades shots with Shreds-A-Lot. Then FrenZy dukes it out with the menacing Backlash and finally, Dr. Inferno Jr. does his own surgical procedure on New Cruelty. Hello everyone and welcome to our final battles for round 1 of Battlebots. I'm Sean Salisbury," began Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer," added Bil.

"Strap yourselves in, everybody because here come our last bots to enter round 2. Let's begin with our first 2 opponents," requested Sean.

 

"Shreds-A-Lot is a wedge with 3 spinning saw blades. His builder is George Hazard from East Windsor, New Jersey. His opponent is Dr. P.A.I.N., also built by George Hazard but is driven by Carlo Bertoccini for this fight," noted Bil.

 

"Time for Mark Beiro's introductions," stated Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: Opponents he has faced have begged for mercy but he rips them limb from limb because he's SHREDS-A-LOT! And his opponent, in the blue square: Much more than just your average boxing glove, he leaves all who despise him in a mangled heap on the floor. Introducing DR.P.A.I.N.!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied George.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Carlo.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Shreds-A-Lot with the early punishment on Dr. P.A.I.N. Looks like PAIN is stuck against the wall, Bil," reacted Sean.

 

"Yeah, Sean. Oh wait he's back over. I think PAIN is outmatched, here, Sean," remarked Bil.

 

"Sure looks like it, Bil. Nice punishing blow into the wall by SAL! Oh look at that, PAIN is stuck on one of the spikes for the Spike Strip!" continued Sean.

 

"That's it for him, Sean. His wheels aren't even touching the ground," concluded Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the Blue Ref.

"The ref's counting him out so it would appear that SAL has won this bout. Let's go to Mark Beiro for the official decision," stated Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time 1 minute, 18 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, SHREDS-A-LOT!" confirmed Mark.

 

"There you have it Shreds-A-Lot moving on. Bil, tell us about our next pair," replied Sean.

 

"FrenZy has a titanium battle axe. His builder is Patrick Campbell of Steven Ranch, California. His opponent is Backlash who is armed with the spinning wheel of death as we call it and a back wedge. His creator is Jim Smentowski from Novato California," analyzed Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil now let's go to Mark Beiro," answered Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He smashes and crashes, he trashes and clashes he's FRENZY! And his opponent, in the blue square: Using his wicked spinning blade, he will  tear you up so that you need first aid. Here is BACKLASH!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Patrick.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Jim.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Backlash with the early attack on FrenZy as we see FrenZy on his back," noted Sean.

 

"FrenZy back on his feet, Sean," countered Bil.

"Look at Backlash, who flips FrenZy again! FrenZy with the self-right but Backlash isn't allowing FrenZy to right and slams him into the wall. FrenZy free now and what a hit by Backlash!" yelled Sean.

 

"FrenZy went flying, Sean! Now he's stuck on top of our arena wall! Look at Backlash taking shots at him!" shouted Bil.

 

"Seems like Backlash has freed FrenZy from the wall, which probably isn't the smartest thing to do. FrenZy taking damage from the Killsaws and another big blow from Backlash as the buzzer sounds," finished Sean.

 

"Now that was a fight, Sean," remarked Bil.

"It certainly was and let's go to Mark Beiro for the Judges Decision," agreed Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27 to 24 decision for the blue square, BACKLASH!" revealed Mark.

 

"So Backlash moving on to round 2. Now let's move on to our final bout. Bil, what do you know about them?" asked Sean.

 

"Dr. Inferno Jr. was the creation of Jason Bardis from Santa Barbra ,California. His opponent is New Cruelty, a 4-wheeled bot, used to be 8-wheeled and his builder is Richard Stuplich from Wasaw, Wisconsin," read Bil.

 

"Now it's time for Mark Beiro with the introductions," said Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He has four-wheel drive, a solid frame and an amazing grudge he's NEW CRUELTY! And his opponent, in the blue square: This bot often sends his opponents to the hospital, he's DR. INFERNO JR.!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Richard.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Jason.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dr. Inferno Jr. underneath New Cruelty but New Cruelty slips away," noted Sean.

 

"New Cruelty doesn't have anything against the doctor, Sean," realized Bil.

 

"Well maybe not as Dr. Inferno Jr. nearly toppled on his own attack, Bil. Oh, take a look at that, Dr. Inferno Jr. is on his back!" reacted Sean.

 

"That's it for Dr. Inferno Jr.," confirmed Bil.

"New Cruelty with a slam into the wall!" continued Sean.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the Blue Ref.

"New Cruelty takes the final slot for round 2. Bil, take us through the highlights," recapped Sean.

 

"Shreds-A-Lot knocks out  Dr. P.A.I.N. after he becomes stuck on the Spike Strip. Backlash advances on a Judges Decision for beating FrenZy. In our last match, New Cruelty put the doctor to sleep," recalled Bil.

 

"Well for Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," replied Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned for the second round of the Battlebots tournament, next week. Goodnight," ended Bil.

Season 1, Episode 7

"Strap yourselves in for the age of robotic destruction is upon us. First, Atomic Wedgie tries to out-maneuver T-Minus. Then Blade Runner and Atomic 2 trade slams. Finally, Techno Destructo battles ShoveMaster2000. Good evening and welcome to yet another night of pure destruction, I'm Sean Salisbury," told Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Tonight we have 6 more bots ready to tear up their opponents. Here's our first pair. Atomic Wedge is a wedge that is the same on both top and bottom. It features dual trifoils and was built by Robert Everhart, Charlie Payne and Tom Corrie from Columbia, Maryland. His opponent is T-Minus, a bot from the team of Inertia Labs. His builders are Zander Rose and Reason Bradley of Sausalito, California," added Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil, now lets go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," continued Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: He leaves all opponents dazed and out of commission. Those who have yet to face him fear his wrath will get them next because he's ATOMIC WEDGIE! And in the Blue Square: He boasts a wicked flipping arm and a nasty grudge on all who oppose him. Welcome T-MINUS!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Robert.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Reason.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Oh, look at T-Minus, who strikes an early flip on Atomic Wedgie!" shouted Sean.

 
"It's no problem for Atomic Wedgie, he can right himself, Sean. However, T-Minus seems to be struggling to work his flipper.

 

"That's not a good sign as Atomic Wedgie delivers a punishing blow to T-Minus. A second blow and T-Minus is kind of inverted," replied Sean.

 

"He's driving on his flipper, Sean!" decreed Bil.

"Take a look at the big blow these two made as T-Minus is on his back right now," noted Sean.

 

"T-Minus' flipper is good but it struggles when T-Minus isn't on his back, Sean," added Bil.

 

"True but T-Minus seems to have overcome the problem as he's back on his wheels, Bil. Oh my goodness! Atomic Wedgie's on his roof! If you're Atomic Wedgie, you need to get back over quickly or you'll be counted out," said Sean.

 

"I don't see that happening, Sean. His righting top is on the outside, so I think this one's over," realized Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the Red Ref.

"So there it is, T-Minus moving on. Let's go to Mark Beiro for the results," concluded Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 30 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the Blue Square, T-MINUS!" confirmed Mark.

 

"How do our next match ups look, Bil?" asked Sean.

"Atomic 2 was also built by Robert Everhart and is the same basic wedge design with spinning tri-foils. His opponent is Blade Runner, who has had some changes, like the new wedge and spinning blade. He was built by Ilya Polyakov from Dix Hills, New York," answered Bil.

 

"As always, thanks Bill. Let's go to Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Introducing first, in the red square: To deal with his opponents he spins and spins and when he is through with them he wins and wins because he's BLADE RUNNER! And his opponent, in the Blue Square: If you every see this maniacal Battlebot lurking in your hedges, it's because you're on his menu of defeat. Please welcome ATOMIC 2!" yelled Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Robert.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Ilya.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots with a nose-to-nose hit and Blade Runner appears to be stuck by those Killsaws, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"He sure does, Sean. Guess he's free now," agreed Bil.

"Look at Atomic 2, who just lost one of his side panels there!" reacted Sean.

 

"What a hit! Atomic 2 still movin', though. Blade Runner's on his back now!" continued Sean.

 

"Just like that he's back onto his feet. Oh, now Atomic 2 doing damage to Blade Runner as Blade Runner just lost his back wedge and is flipped over!" added Bil.

 

"Take a look at Atomic 2, Sean. He's on his back end, his self-righting top is helpless. We just saw this in our last bout. Poor Robert," stated Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match! reacted the Red Ref.

"So another one of Robert's robots knocked out of the competition. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 2 minutes, 10 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the Blue Square, BLADE RUNNER!" announced Mark.

 

"That's two more robots moving onto the next round, Bil. So who are our last two competitors and what do you know about them?" recapped Sean.

 

"Plenty, Sean. Techno Destructo was the creation of Sean Irvin of Melbourne, Florida. He has a strong flipper that can also act as a wedge. ShoveMaster2000, has a plow-like weapon at the front. His builder is George Hazard from East Windsor, NJ," read Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil, now lets go to the floor with Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"Introducing, in the Red Square, to my right: This flipping fiend launches and destroys his opponents with overwhelming force. He's TECHNO DESTRUCTO! And his opponent, in the Blue Square: When it comes to battling in the Battlebox, he shoves and shoves. When it comes to defeat, he does what nobody loves. He's SHOVEMASTER2000!" declared Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! ShoveMaster immediately on the attack on Techno Destructo and it looks to me like Techno Destructo is stuck, Bil," began Sean.

 

"Yeah, his wheel is on the outside of the arena, Sean. I don't think he's getting out of there," agreed Bil.

"Not with ShoveMaster delivering more blows to him," protested Sean.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" ordered the Red Ref.

"So a quick victory for George Hazard, Bil. Let's go to Mark Beiro for the official decision," remarked Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 5 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the Blue Square, SHOVEMASTER2000!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Take us through the bouts again, Bil.

"T-Minus is moving on, despite Atomic Wedgies early attacks, after getting Atomic Wedgie onto his roof. Blade Runner advances after trading hits with Atomic 2 and knocking him on his back and out of the tournament. In our last match, ShoveMaster2000 makes a quick slam, ending the reign of the flipper bot Techno Destructo," recalled Bil.

 

"For everyone on our team, Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," told Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as the Battlebots tournament continues next week," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 6

"Another night of robot carnage is upon us as Twin Paradox tries to show Mauler 5150 who's boss. The knife-thrower Overkill tries to hack the saw bot Ginsu. Finally, Mechavore and Deadblow have a feast on one another. Good evening and welcome to another of our weekly slamfests, I'm Sean Salisbury," stated Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer," added Bil.

"Tonight's fights are looking to dish out more amazing hits. Let's bring on our first competitors," continued Sean.

 

"Mauler 5150 is a spinner with swinging flails on the sides. His builder is Charles Tilford of Portola Valley, California. Twin Paradox is a box with a disc at the front. He was built by Michael Neese and Skunk-Tek of Charlotte, North Carolina," read Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: This deadly Battlebot has sent numerous opponents running home. Here is TWIN PARADOX! And his opponent, in the blue square: Don't ever turn your back to this mighty spinner of doom or you'll end up in thousands of pieces. Please welcome MAULER 5150!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Michael.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Charles.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Already punishment to Twin Paradox as he is now upside down. That's what Mauler brings to the table! Twin Paradox takes damage from the Killsaws," noted Sean.

 

"Twin Paradox on his back now, doesn't hurt him though, as his wheels are still on the ground, Sean," added Bil.

"Another punishing blow by Mauler and it looks as though Twin Paradox has better turning radius than he normally has right now, Bil. Something was hit from that attack. Oh my goodness! Mauler's on his back!" exclaimed Sean.

 

"Mauler, Mauler, Mauler, how many times have we seen this?" questioned Bil with disappointment.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the Blue Ref.

"Well Mauler gets to ride home as Twin Paradox advances. Lets' go to Mark Beiro for the results," remarked Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time, 1 minute, 25 seconds. The winner by a knockout and advancing to the next round, the red square, TWIN PARADOX!" confirmed Mark.

 

"So Twin Paradox kicks the deadly Mauler out of the tournament. Now for our next match up and my partner Bil has the statistics of our competitors," added Sean.

 

"Indeed, Sean. Overkill was built by Christian Carleberg of North Hollywood California. It has a wedge in front and a swinging knife in back. Ginsu was built by Trey Roski. His weapons are many saw blades that also act as wheels," replied Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil, now lets go to the floor with Mark Beiro," responded Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: Never stare at this knife throwing Battlebot for he'll slice you in two! Here is OVERKILL! And his opponent, in the blue square: Every opponent he has faced has been turned into only shards of metal. Introducing GINSU!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Trey.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Overkill trying to gain an early lead on Ginsu but Ginsu's not letting him. Take a look at that, Overkill's been flipped by Ginsu!" announced Sean.

 

"You don't usually expect a bot like Ginsu to flip anything except itself when it rolls onto another set of its saws," recalled Bil.

 

"No, you don't, Bil and it's amazing that Ginsu  didn't flip himself in the process. Ginsu drives Overkill to the Pulverizors!" agreed Sean.

 

"Overkill looks to be stuck with the Spike Strip, Sean," noted Bil.

"Not quite for Overkill's wheels are still on the ground, Bil. There comes Overkill's escape. Not a lot of offensive play by either Battlebot. Ginsu's on his side, so this one is over!" protested Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match! declared the Red Ref.

"Overkill's moving on to face either Deadblow or Mechavore. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," requested Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 33 seconds. The winner, by knockout, in the red square, OVERKILL!" confirmed Mark.

 

"There you have it, Overkill moving on. Now lets get to our final bout," continued Sean.

 

"Mechavore has a nasty disc at the front and a rear wedge. His builder is Deadblow was built by Grand Imahara of Los Angeles, California. His weapon is a pneumatic flipper and wedge at the front," read Bil.

 

"Time for introductions with Mark Beiro," answered Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Battlebot out to destroy you! He's DEADBLOW! And his opponent, in the blue square: Many have tried to stop this rampaging behemoth from advancing to the next round but all have failed when faced with MECHAVORE!" shared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Grant.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Robert.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Deadblow with an attempted flip on Mechavore but Mechavore escapes," began Sean.

 

"Mechavore's a lot smaller than Deadblow, Sean, he's gotta be careful or Deadblow will flip him over," warned Bil.

 

"Mechavore escapes the Killsaws. Mechavore not showing a lot of offensive play, right now. He seems to be almost running away from Deadblow," noted Sean.

 

"Not a bad idea considering how vulnerable he is to flipping, Sean," remarked Bil.

 

"Speaking of flipping, Bil, Mechavore's been flipped by the Killsaws!" replied Sean.

 

"That's it, Deadblow movin' on," concluded Bil.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! stop the match!" shouted the Blue Ref.

"Now for the official decision with Mark Beiro," said Sean.

"Ladies and gentleman, the time, 33 seconds. The winner, by a knock out, in the red square, DEADBLOW!" declared Mark.

 

"Well yet another night of robotic destruction comes to a close so for Randy and Jason Sklarr, Donna Dierrico and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," finished Sean.

 

"And I'm Bil Dwyer. Join us next time for more robot carnage. Goodnight," added Bil.

Season 1, Episode 5

"We're serving up 3 courses of robotic destruction as Question Mark battles Dreadnaught. The bull Toro tries to win in the trial against The Judge and finally, if you're still hungry, watch as Hazard and Tazbot fight for the next round. Hello and welcome to yet another smash-filled night. I'm Sean Salisbury and the man to my left is Bil Dwyer. I can see that with these bouts we will not only have winners and losers but great fights," began Sean.

 

"I'm with you on that, Sean," agreed Bil.

"Bil, introduce our fans to our first competitors," requested Sean.

"Question Mark is a Biohazard-like design. Built by Carlo Bertocchini from Belmont California. Dreadnaught was built by Christian Carlberg from North Hollywood, California. He has a rear wedge and a horizontal spinning disc for weapons," read Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," continued Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: This is not a dangerous material, it is also an exact duplicate of another Battlebot. Please welcome QUESTION MARK! And his opponent, in the blue square: The only thing on the minds of other Battlebots when they face this maniacal demon is to avoid his deadly blade at all costs because he's DREADNAUGHT!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," replied Carlo.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," answered Christian.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Question Mark on the left, Dreadnaught on the right as we see Dreadnaught stuck in one of the slots for the Killsaws. Dreadnaught being pushed to the Pulverizors and Dreadnaught doesn't quite escape," stated Sean.

 

"Dreadnaught might want to back into Question Mark and use the wedge, Sean. Oh man, a big hit by Dreadnaught! What an effective wedge, Sean," noted Bil.

 

"It is very effective, Bil as we see Dreadnaught again delivering punishment to Question Mark and Question Mark is starting to fall apart, one of his side skirts is gone and a piece of his top armor is missing. Question Mark has got to start finding weaknesses in Dreadnaught if he is to win this fight, Bil," added Sean.

 

"Yeah, I don't see any signs of Question Mark getting under Dreadnaught at all, Sean," nodded Bil.

 

"There's a slight shove by Question Mark but he's going to have to do better as Dreadnaught makes another slam into the wall and Question Mark is on his back and in trouble. Oh they're counting him out now as the Pulverizor continues to pound away. Let's go to Mark Beiro for the official decision," concluded Sean.

 

"Ladies' and gentleman, the time: 2 minutes, 8 seconds. The winner, by knockout and advancing to the next round: the blue square, Dreadnaught," declared Mark.

 

"There you have it, Dreadnaught moving on. Now for round 2. What do you know about these two, Bil?" replied Sean.

 

"Plenty, Sean. Toro was built by Reason Bradley from Sausalito, California. His main weapon is a CO2 powered flipper. His opponent is The Judge, whose main weapon is a long axe-like weapon. He was built by Jascha Little from Austin Texas," analyzed Bil.

 

"It's that time again, here's Mark Beiro," responded Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He helps solve court cases, he punishes the bad and he takes his problems out on other robots, he's THE JUDGE! And his opponent, in the blue square: You will not see him flipping pancakes, you will not see him as a car jack, you will see him beating the crap out of other robots. He's TORO!" introduced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," answered Jascha.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," replied Reason.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! The Judge with an early attack on Toro but only struck the flipper. Toro seeming to be struggling to find an opening to flip The Judge over, Bil," analyzed Sean.

 

"Yeah, The Judge doesn't have many ways of being flipped, Sean, he's so low to the ground that the flipper would have to be practically touching the floor to get underneath," added Bil.

 

"Toro's weapon looks to be incapacitated but he still slams The Judge into the wall and onto his side! The Judge looks to be in major trouble, Bil as we see him being pushed to the Pulverizors," continued Sean.

 

"There are a lot of blows being done by the Pulverizor, right now. I think Toro has won this, Sean," concluded Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match! declared the Red Ref.

"So Toro moves on after losing his weaponry. Lets' go to Mark Beiro for the official results," recapped Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time: 1 minute, 29 seconds. The winner, by knockout, in the blue square, Toro!" confirmed Mark.

 

"Now for our final competitors, tonight. Bil, talk about these two," requested Sean.

 

"With pleasure, Sean. Hazard is a wedge with a spinning bar on top. His builders are Tony Buchignani and Dan Danick. Tazbot was built by Donald Hutson of San Diego California. His weapon is a 360 degree turret and side wedges," answered Bil.

 

"It's time for the official introductions with Mark Beiro," called Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: Don't think you can hide from this nasty monster. He'll turn you inside out because he's TAZBOT! And his opponent in the blue square: He has a small wedge and a nasty spinning blade. When he's done with you, you'll need more than a few stitches. Introducing HAZARD!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Ref.

"Ready," answered Donald.

"Red driver is ready," echoed the Red Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Ref.

"I'm ready," replied Tony.

"Blue driver is ready," confirmed the Blue Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Tazbot trying to use his turret to get under Hazard, which is a good strategy if he can do so and flip Hazard over," began Sean.

 

"Doesn't seem to be working, Sean as Hazard just brutally slammed Tazbot into the wall and I think he may be already knocked out," realized Bil.

 

"He doesn't appear to be knocked out but rather stuck. He's trying to use his pickaxe to free himself but it's not working either. Take a look now as they seem to have snagged Hazard and have flipped him over," corrected Sean.

 

"Too bad, though, as it seems like Hazard's moving on anyway," remarked Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the Red Ref.

"Hazard is definitely moving on, lets go to Mark Beiro for the official decision," confirmed Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentleman, the time: 1 minute,. 44 seconds. The winner by knock out and advancing to the next round, Hazard!" echoed Mark.

"Another jam-packed night of robot domination. Take us through the highlights, Bil," requested Sean.

 

"Dreadnaught dominated Question Mark by slamming him into the wall and flipping him over, then letting the Pulverizor finish him off. In the second bout, despite Toro's loss of his flipping arm, he managed to get The Judge under the Pulverizor for a quick knockout. In our last bout, Hazard moves on despite being flipped over after Tazbot gets stuck in the spikestrip," recapped Bil.

 

"Well for Randy and Jason Sklarr, Donna Dierrico and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," recalled Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Join us next time for more robotic annihilation. Goodnight," finished Bil.

Season 1, Episode 4

"The dawn of destruction has arrived as Sabotage battles Dooall. Minion II tries some slicing and dicing against Dr. Indestructible. Finally, Tentomushi 8.0 trades blows with Ziggo. Hello and welcome to another slamfest, I'm Sean Salisbury and he's Bil Dwyer," introduced Sean.

 

"That I am, Sean and we have another 3 Battlebots thirsty for robot carnage," agreed Bil.

 

"Bill, tell our viewers about are first Battlebots tonight," requested Sean.

 

"Dooall, once a treaded bot is now a four-wheeled bot. He still has the pneumatic ram and was built by Scot Lavally from San Rafael, California. His opponent is Sabotage. He has a flipper, which also can act as a wedge. His builder is Matt Sabotino of Greenwood, California," analyzed Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," replied Sean.

 

"Introducing first, in the red square to my right: This isn't an ordinary spatula. It is not designed to swat flies, it is designed to destroy other robots. Welcome SABOTAGE! And his opponent, in the blue square: He won't do some of it, he won't do most of it he'll do it all because he's DOOALL!" shouted Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Square ref.

"Ready!" replied Matt.

"Red driver is ready!" declared the ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Square ref.

"Ready!" answered Scott.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated the ref.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage with an early flip on Dooall. Sabotage continuing to be the early aggressor as he once again flips Dooall. Oh, look at that as Dooall slams Sabotage into the wall!" commented Sean.

 

"Both are well-made bots, this one's going the distance, Sean," concluded Bil.

 

"There goes another blow by Sabotage and it looks to me like Dooall is stuck," realized Sean.

 

"Sure does, Sean, but he's free now," added Bil.

"Dooall's taking Sabotage to the Pulverizors!" continued Sean.

"Two great pounding blows by the Pulverizor!" counted Bil.

"Take a look at Sabotage, who is now on his back, he's in trouble," noted Sean.

 

"Yeah he is, especially since his flipper can't get underneath Dooall at all," nodded Bil.

 

"A big slam by Sabotage and both robots seem incapacitated, Bil," stated Sean.

 

"They are, so the refs will have to pause and free the bots," reminded Bil.

 

"Dooall strikes back with a slam of his own and Sabotage has been flipped back over. We're down to about 30 seconds and Sabotage flips Dooall once again," said Sean.

 

"What a fight by these two!" remarked Bil.

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the Judges Decision," replied Sean.

"The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 29-21 decision, for the red square, SABOTAGE!" announced Mark.

 

"Dooall goes home, now let's start our next match up. What do you know about these robots, Bil?" recaped Sean.

 

"Minion II is pretty much his longer-wedged robot Minion except that this one has two saws instead of one. Built by Christian Carleburg in North Hollywood, California. Dr. Indestructible has a 3-wheel drive, letting him move 360 degrees. He was built by George Hazard in East Windsor, New Jersey," read Bil.

 

"Let's go down to Mark Beiro with the statistics," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: If you're expecting to leave with all your limbs attached, think again for you're fighting MINION II! And his opponent in the blue square:  His objective: destroy other robots, his plan: slam maliciously, his name: DR INDESTRUCTIBLE!" declared Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin time! Dr. Indestructible getting underneath Minion II but can't seem to move him to one of the hazards. Take a look, now as  Dr. Indestructible is flipped onto his side, then onto his back from the Killsaws. Dr. Indestructible seems to be dominating this fight as he lifts Minion and slams him into the wall," started Sean.

 

"Something's wrong with Dr. Indestructible, Sean, he can't seem to free himself from the wall," noted Bil.

 

"He appears to be stuck somehow between the wall and the edge of the floor, Bil. Minion's just taking cheap shots at Dr. Indestructible but he's moving on," confirmed Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared the Blue Ref.

"Minion II moving on. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro," continued Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 55 seconds, the winner, by knockout, in the red square, Minion II!" announced Mark.

 

"Now for our last pair of Battlebots," stated Sean.

"Tentomush 8.0 is pretty much a sandbox on wheels. Built by Lisa Winter of Walnut Creek California. Her opponent is Ziggo, a spinner, built by John Ridder of San Jose, California," analyzed Bil.

 

"Time for the introductions with Mark Beiro," confirmed Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right, she may look cute and cuddly but she'll tear you limb from limb. Please welcome TENTOMUSHI 8.0! And her opponent, in the blue square:  The only respect he shows is by totally annihilating his opponents. Introducing ZIGGO!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked Red Square Ref.

"I'm ready!" answered Lisa.

"Red driver is ready!" echoed Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked Blue Square Ref.

"Ready!" replied Jonathan.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Tentomushi with an early flip but Ziggo uses that flag on top to self-right and does so. Ziggo seems to be the more aggressive, right now, Bil," concluded Sean.

 

"That's right, Sean. Ziggo on the Killsaws right now," agreed Bil.

"Ziggo seems to be taking damage from these hits but yet he keeps going as he flips Tentomushi over. Lisa Winter, a good driver, showing quite a bit now as Ziggo is flipped once again. Oh my goodness, look at the hit just delivered by Tentomushi!" reacted Sean.

 

"Tentomushi just tore Ziggo apart! Oh man, what a hit!" remarked Bil.

"We have just under 30 seconds to go and Ziggo's unable to self-right because he's up against the wall," added Sean.

 

"What an awesome fight!" finished Bil.

"It was indeed awesome, Bil, let's go to Mark Beiro for the results," agreed Sean.

 

 "The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27-23 decision for the blue square, ZIGGO!" declared Mark.

 

"Amazingly, Ziggo goes through but he's going to need some major repairs before his next fight. Well another great slam-filled night. Bil take us through the hits once more time," stated Sean.

 

"Sabotage out flipped and out maneuvered Dooall to move on. Minion II shows Dr. Indestructible that there's no such thing as an indestructible bot and heads to the next round. Finally, despite being blown to pieces by Tentomushi, Ziggo advances to the next round," recaped Bil.

 

"For Randy and Jason Sklar, Donna Dierrico and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," concluded Sean.

 

"And I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight," added Bil.

Season 1, Episode 3

"It's a day of robot demolition on Battlebots! Vlad II wants to put Ronin to an early grave, Mechadon and Grendel try survival of the fittest and if you're still thirsty for robot annihilation, we're serving up a glass of pain and punishment as Nightmare takes on Warhead. Hello everyone and welcome to another smashing fight-filled night, I'm Sean Salisbury," began Sean.

 

"And I'm Bil Dwyer," added Bil.

"Bil, we have 3 more rounds of robotic destruction to get through, tonight. Tell us about our first pair of Battlebots," continued Sean.

 

"Vlad II was built by Gauge Cauchois from Oakland California. He has two lifting forks at the front and a self-righting mechanism on top to right him if flipped over. His opponent is Ronin, who has a spinning saw blade. His creator, Peter Abrahamson, is from Burbank, California," explained Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," suggested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: This sinister robot will not leave until every limb you have is torn off. Welcome RONIN! And his opponent, in the blue square, other robots may have flippers, some have axes but this one bares two lifting forks and he's going to use them on you, please welcome VLAD II!" shouted Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked Red Square Ref.

"I'm ready!" answered Gage.

"Red driver is ready!" echoed Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked Blue Square Ref.

"Ready!" replied Peter Abrahamson.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Vlad II already under Ronin but Ronin is able to get away," resumed Sean.

 

"I don't think Ronin will get any where with that blade or with that high ground clearance, Sean," noted Bil.

"That is true, Bil as we now see Vlad flipping Ronin over but Ronin's not stuck because his flags have the ability to self-right," agreed Sean.

 

"Vlad again on the aggressive with a slam into the wall! Ronin doesn't seem to be doing much," stated Bil.

"No but he is hanging in there. Take a look at that, Vlad has slammed Ronin into the corner with the Pulverizor and I think he's incapacitated!" noticed Sean.

 

"That Pulverizor is definitely pounding on him, Sean. I think Ronin is definitely out," concluded Bil.

"Yes he is, Bil," agreed Sean.

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" declared Blue Square Ref.

"So Vlad II runs to the next round. Now we go to our next round," said Sean.

"Mechadon is a stomp bot built by Mark Setrakian. Grendel has a spring-loaded hammer and was built by Daniel Rupert," analyzed Bi.

"It's that time again so let's go to Mark Beiro," said Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: he crawls up your walls, he scurries down your halls he's the bug that is scary-looking overall, he's MECHADON! And his opponent, in the blue square: Once he finds you, you are on his menu of defeat! Introducing GRENDEL!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked Red Square Ref.

"Ready!" replied Mark Setrakian.

"Red driver is ready!" called Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" questioned Blue Square Ref.

"I am ready!" nodded Daniel Rupert.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both bots not able to do much since both are low to the ground and don't have any type of wedge or flipper. It should be a 3-minute match, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"Unless one of them is flipped by the Killsaws or something, I think you're right, Sean," protested Bil.

"Grendel now slamming Mechadon into the wall but not enough to flip him. Take a look now, as he shoves Mechadon under the Pulverizors!" reacted Sean.

 

"Grendel also took a shot from the Pulverizors and now the Killsaws!" noted Bil.

"Looks like Mechadon's caught in between the spikes in the wall, Bil," analyzed Sean.

"Yeah, I don't think he'll be able to get out of there but he's certainly trying and is free," agreed Bil.

"We're under a minute to go now as Grendel with yet another slam into the wall," stated Sean.

"What a fight!" shouted Bil excitedly.

"Yes, it will be difficult to determine the winner, Bil," realized Sean.

"How did Mechadon advance, Sean?" asked Bil.

"I'm not sure I understand it either, Bil, but I think it may have had something to do with aggression. Now let's go for our final bout. What do you know about these next two robots, Bil?" replied Sean.

"A lot, Nightmare has a very powerful spinning disc. He was built by Jim Smentowski from Novato, California. Warhead was built by Vinny Blood from Bournemouth," elaborated Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions," requested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: This isn't a dream, you're really fighting this deadly robot. He's none other than your worst NIGHTMARE! And his opponent, in the blue square: Mess with him and he'll leave you with nothing but a grinding headache. He's WARHEAD!" shared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked Red Square Ref.

"Ready!" said Jim

"Red driver is ready!" repeated Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked Blue Square Ref.

"I'm ready!" replied Vincent Blood.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Take a look at that, Warhead just brutally slammed Nightmare into the wall and now he's stuck there!" announced Sean.

 

"What an opening play by Warhead!" commended Bil.

"Looks like Nightmare is free but only able to drive on one wheel, Bil," added Sean.

"At least he's moving, maybe he'll get back over with Warhead's help," figured Bil.

"He's certainly not getting it now as Warhead shoves Nightmare under the Pulverizor! Nightmare's back over now! Oh my goodness, Nightmare is now stuck under one of the spikes in our Spike Strip!" declared Sean.

 

"Nightmare just did a big flip to get back over, Sean," noted Bil.

"Look at Warhead, he's lost his weapon! We've never seen this happen in the history of Battlebots!" remarked Sean.

 

"Nicely done by Jim Smentowski and Nightmare!" stated Bil.

"We're just about wrapped up in this bout as Nightmare flips Warhead!" continued Bil.

"What a fight, what a fight!" chanted Bil.

"Nightmare takes the 27-19 Judges Decision, Bil. It looked to me like the last two hits in the match were the ones that won him the match," concluded Sean.

 

"Seems like it to me, too, Sean, every other time it was all Warhead," agreed Bil.

"Well another night of robotic destruction ends. Bil, take us through the highlights," requested Sean.

"Vlad II dominated Ronin by smashing him with the Pulverizor for the eventual knockout. Mechadon walks through to the next round after taking the Judges Decision. Despite being basically dominated by Warhead, the judges gave Nightmare the victory," recapped Bil.

 

"Well for Donna Dierrico, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," finished Sean.

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight," added Bil.

Season 1, Episode 2

"It's chaos in the Battlebox as  a newcomer Mac Attack tries to make a sandwich out of The Devil. El Diablo wants to make scrap metal out of Alpha Raptor. Still want more? Well fasten your seatbelts as Vlad and Panic Attack trade flips and punches. Hello everyone and welcome to another carnage-filled night. I'm Sean Salisbury and this is my partner Bil Dwyer," began Sean.

 

"Alright, tonight we have another 6 bots ready to rumble and tear their opponent to pieces," stated Bil.

"That's exactly right, Bil and I can tell that they're all ready to give their opponent a major helping of domination," agreed Sean.

 

"Our first match up features Mac Attack, a hamburger-shaped bot with spinning saws as his main weapon. He was created by Mc Donalds themselves in the United States. His opponent is The Devil. He's a robot similar to El Diablo but instead of the spinning drum and spiked tail, he has a wedge and can run upside down," explained Bil.

 

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the official introductions," suggested Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you think that this Battlebot is harmless, you'd better think again for he's THE DEVIL! And his opponent, in the blue square: This isn't a hamburger you eat, this isn't a hamburger you cut, this is a hamburger that kills! Please welcome MAC ATTACK!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Square Ref.

"Ready!" answered Zach Bieber.

"Red driver is ready!" repeated the Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" questioned the Blue Square Ref.

"We're ready!" declared McDonalds' drivers.

"Blue drivers are ready!" echoed the Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! The Devil already delivering punishment to the newcomer Mac Attack as he slams him into the wall," noted Sean.

 

"Doesn't look like Mac Attack's saws are going to be of any use, are they, Sean?" asked Bil.

"I think you're right, Bil, it seems that his saws are just too high to be within reach of The Devil. Another punishing blow by The Devil," replied Sean.

 

"Not a lot of offensive play by Mac Attack," added Bil.

"Well being the newcomer generally would contribute but also his weapons are ineffective and he doesn't have any additional weapons to maybe get underneath The Devil. Take a look now as we see Mac Attack near the Pulverizors and it looks like The Devil is stuck at the yellow spot near the Spike Strip," continued Sean.

 

"Looks like The Devil is free now," stated Bil.

"Yes and now he has just delivered the final blow as we see Mac Attack on his side with just under a minute to go," stated Sean.

 

"That was a sweet fight!" shouted Bil

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the Blue Ref.

"So The Devil advances to the next round and Mac Attack goes home. Now for our next pairing so let's go to Mark Beiro," concluded Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's red, he hates everything he's read, he's here to destroy you instead, he's EL DIABLO! And his opponent, in the blue square: Get him mad and you'll be without your face! Introducing ALPHA RAPTOR," declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Square Ref.

"Ready!" answered Zach.

"Red driver is ready!" stated the Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Square Ref

"I'm ready!" answered Chuck Pitzer.

"Blue driver is ready!" repated the Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Take a look at the early aggression by Alpha Raptor as he slams El Diablo into the wall, Bil," said Sean.

 

"That was quite the slam, Sean but El Diablo hasn't slowed down a bit," remarked Bil.

"This is looking to be a great fight with both drivers pushing the other around. Are they both now incapacitated, Bil?" asked Sean.

 

"Sure looks like it, Sean, they're going to have to separate them. El Diablo's going to need to rack up some points or go for the knockout to win this," added Bil.

"That's right since he hasn't really done anything on the offensive to Alpha Raptor but look now as both bots are flipped over! The fight doesn't need to be reset because El Diablo can self-right but it looks to me like Alpha Raptor cannot since his main weapon is gone," nodded Sean.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced the Blue Square Ref.

"Look at El Diablo just playing with Alpha Raptor even while he's disabled," stated Sean.

"Alpha Raptor leaves while El Diablo advances. Let's go to our final match of the night where Mark Beiro has the statistics," suggested Sean.

 

"Introducing, first, in the red square to my right: Don't think he's a pain killer. In fact, he's more like a pain giver, he's PANIC ATTACK! And his opponent, in the blue square: This fearless robot leaves pain and destruction everywhere he goes. Welcome VLAD THE IMPALER!" shouted Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked Red Square Ref.

"Ready!" replied Kim Davies.

"Red driver is ready!" called Red Square Ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked Blue Square Ref.

"I'm ready!" stated Gage Cauchois.

"Blue driver is ready!" repeated Blue Square Ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Oh my goodness, Vlad's already on his back end from Panic Attack!" declared Sean.

 

"Vlad's usually a good driver," added Bil.

"Yes, Gauge Cauchois is definitely a good driver but it seems like Kim Davis is slightly better. Take a look at that, Panic Attack is helping Vlad!" admitted Sean.

 

"So Panic's being a little generous to Vlad," concluded Bil.

"Vlad seems to be struggling to find an opening to lift and slam, Bil," realized Sean.

"Yeah, Panic Attack has skirts on 3 of the four sides, Sean, and with his lifting forks that high, it's no problem for Panic Attack to flip Vlad," explained Bil.

 

"Oh! Both bots are incapacitated! Wait a minute, it looks as if Panic Attack has found a way to right himself and he has!" declared Sean.

 

"What a shame for Vlad. If only he could have gotten underneath Panic Attack, he could've probably won," figured Bil.

 

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! Stop the match!" announced Blue Square Ref.

"Well, there you have it, another 3 bots advance to the next round. Bil, take us through the highlights.

"The Devil advances after splitting apart the hamburger bot, Mac Attack. El Diablo tore up and flipped Alpha Raptor to earn a spot in the next round. Finally, Panic Attack proved to be too much for Vlad the Impaler as he advances to the next round," reminded Bi.

 

"For Randy and Jasen Sklar, Donna Dierrico and Bill Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," finished Sean.

"And I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight," added Bil.

Season 1, Episode 1

"Tonight we have a triple play of destruction. First, the UK Killerhurtz tries to go nose to nose with Minion. Next, It's another wedge fest as Ankle Biter and Bad Attitude trade blows. Finally it's a battle of the blades as Diesector and Son of Whyachi duke it out. (Battlebots opening theme). Strap yourselves in as we have a brand new Battlebots Tournament to start. Bil, tell us about our first two competitors," said Sean.

 

"Killerhurtz is a wedge with an axe. His builder is Jon Reid from Oxford. Minion is a wedge with a fireman's saw. His builder is Christian Carlberg of North Hollywood California," explained Bil.

 

"Let's go down to Mark Beiro for the introductions," continued Sean.

 Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's not here to say hello, he's not here to wish you luck, he's here to destroy you, here is KILLERHURTZ! And his opponent, in the blue square, he'll shove you, he'll mangle you, he'll shred you but he will not love you, he's MINION!" declared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Square Ref

"Ready!" replied Jon Reid.

"Red driver is ready," repeated the ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" questioned the Blue Square Ref

"I'm ready!" answered Christian Carlberg

"Blue driver is ready!" called the ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Killerhurtz with an early attack on Minion. Killerhurtz takes damage from the Killsaws. Take a look at that, Killerhurtz is under Minion and flips him over!" noted Sean.

 

"He's getting pulverized!" added Bil.

"That he is as he brings himself back to his wheels," replied Sean.

"Minion just took a big hit from Killerhurtz's axe," continued Bil.

 

"And he lost his self-righting mechanism, which could mean trouble if he's flipped over, Bil. Take a look at Minion, who has just slammed Killerhurtz into the wall and flipped him!" added Sean.

 

"Killerhurtz isn't looking too good right now, Sean, he seems to be having trouble righting himself," said Bil.

"He's up against the wall, which drops out many angles for self-righting," elaborated Sean.

 

"Look at Minion taking cheap shots on Killerhurtz with his saw!" shouted Bil.

"There we see the flip-over by Killerhurtz," said Sean.

"Oh, look at Minion, who's now jammed between the wall and the floor, Sean!" reacted Bil.

 

"He's in trouble if he can't free himself. We are down to the last few seconds of the bout now as Minion slams Killerhurtz into the Spike Strip!" finished Sean.

 

"What a way to end it too!" concluded Bil.

"Let's go to Mark Beiro for the official decision," suggested Sean.

"The 3 judges at arena side, have turned in a 21 to 19 decision....for....the blue square, MINION!" announced Mark.

"Next up, it's Bad Attitude vs. Ankle Biter so let's go to Mark Beiro," stated Sean.

 

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's bad, he's mad, he's the worst pet you'd ever have, he's ANKLE BITER! And his opponent, in the blue square: The only favor he'll ask you to do is lose to him in a Battlebots tournament. Please welcome BAD ATTITUDE!" declared Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Bad Attitude immediately slams Ankle Biter into the corner. Take a look now, as AB is slammed into the Spike Strip!" began Sean.

 

"Where AB has gotten stuck countless times," recalled Bil.

"Not this time as he is free and is now slamming BA into the wall," protested Sean.

"This is a great fight, two robots not afraid of slamming one another into the wall!" admitted Bil.

 

"Bad Attitude has Ankle Biter under the Pulverizor, our renovated Pulverizor!" noted Sean.

 

"Ankle Biter just flipped BA over, right onto the Killsaws!" realized Bil.

"BA is lucky this time because the Killsaws helped him out but it also gave AB hazard points," continued Sean.

 

"Bad Attitude not looking good right now as he's just lost a side panel," noted Bil.

 

"Is Bad Attitude incapacitated, Bil?" asked Sean.

"Yeah, it looks like he is, I can't see his wheels touching the ground, Sean. Oh, they're counting BA out!" replied Bil.

 

"Well, Ankle Biter moves on to the next round. Bil, who are our next pair of bots?" stated Sean.

 

"Son of Whyachi is a kind of walker bot with a helicopter-like weapon. His builder is Terry Ewart of Dorchester, Wisconsin. Diesector is built by Donald Hutson of San Diego California. His weapons are two battle axes. jaws and a wedge," explained Bil.

 

"Well, here to introduce the bots is Mark Beiro," resumed Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: If you even think that you are going to beat him unscathed, talk to DIESECTOR! And his opponent, in the blue square: Don't make fun of this deadly robot or you'll end up without any legs to stand on. Welcome SON OF WHYACHI!" shared Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the Red Square ref.

"Ready!" replied Donald.

"Diesector is ready!" declared the ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the Blue Square ref.

"Ready!" answered Terry.

"Son of Whyachi is ready!" repeated the ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time!" shouted Sean.

"Diesector comes straight out of his square and slams into SOW, trying to flip him over but Son of Whyachi moves away," began Bil.

 

"Son of Whyachi just flipped Diesector, what an amazing moment there," stated Bil.

"Doesn't matter because Diesector can run either way and slams SOW into the wall and it looks like SOW lost his wheels!" noted Bil.

 

"He's incapacitated!" added Sean.

"What a fight!" finished Bil.

"Our first Battlebots episode has come to a close. Bil, take us through the highlights," requested Sean.

 

"With pleasure. Minion takes a close victory, despite the brutal attacks by Killerhurtz. Ankle Biter moves on after Bad Attitude got caught in  the Spike Strip. Finally, Diesector rides to the next round after pulling off a one-hit knock out," recapped Bil.

 

"For Randy and Jason Sklar, Donna Dierrico and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," stated Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer and we leave you with the hit of the week. Goodnight," finished Bil.
