Episode 26

SS: Only a small handful of brave robots remain as we weed out the weak and crown our next champion. Welcome to this championship edition of Battlebots I'm Sean Salisbury and my amazing co-host is Bil Dwyer.

BD: Before we get right down to the 101 on these two robots, let's rewind and remember how these two got here. Techno Destructo tossed out Diesector, Killerhurtz, and Surgeon General to get here whereas Hazard tore up Alpha Raptor in his first bout. Next he put Atomic Wedgie on his rear end for the victory. Then he easily pushed around ShoveMaster2000. Techno Destructo features a powerful flipping arm and was built by Sean Irving of Melbourne Florida. Tony Buchignani's Hazard has a front wedge and a spinning steel bar for weapons. Tony is from Los Angeles, California.

SS: If a picture is worth a thousand words, then fighting robots should be worth a million and Mark Beiro has more.

MB: Introducing first in the red square: Nice robots finish last so this guy must finish first. It's HAZARD! And in the blue square: There's a new kind of techno and it's known inside the Battlebox as TECHNO DESTRUCTO!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
TONY: I'm ready.
RR: Hazard is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
SEAN: Ready!
BR: Techno Destructo is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots very well designed here as neither robot seems to be able to get underneath but Hazard makes the first flip on Techno Destructo.

BD: It's kind of ironic, Sean because Hazard isn't the type of robot to flip and he flipped the robot that has a flipping arm.

SS: That front wedge of Hazard able to push Techno Destructo into the Screws for a little punishment but Techno Destructo able to get away. Techno Destructo on his back again now but he has that flipper to help him get back in this fight. Techno Destructo taking a bit of damage from the Killsaws there and missing on a flip against Hazard.

BD: Hazard is really vulnerable right now because he's lost the middle section of his wedge and it's underneath him so he's up on his rear wheels, allowing Techno Destructo to flip and Hazard's on his back but his blade came off at the same time, what a flip!

SS: One flip is all Techno Destructo needed to take this fight in victory. Give us the specs on our next pair, Bil.

BD: Low Blow is a very low bot with more of a shape like Mouser Mecha Catbot and was built by Wray Russ from Brentwood, California.  Michael Neese of Charlotte, North Carolina built Twin Paradox with a front blade and a rear plow.

SS: It's that time again with Mark Beiro.
MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: He's not staying low to hide from you, he's trying to stay low so that he can make sure your pain is worse than your bite. It's LOW BLOW! And in the blue square: If you find this robot at your next haunted house visit, it's because you're his next victim. Here is TWIN PARADOX!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Winner going to the finals as right now Twin Paradox seems to be having trouble getting underneath Low Blow just like New Cruelty in a previous bout.

BD: It's almost like he's tryin' to use Low Blow like a ramp to flip himself over to see if he has a better chance but right now, he's stuck against the arena wall there but luckily he had at least one of his rear wheels touching the Screws so he was able to get down.

SS: I'm not too sure Twin Paradox would have much luck if he was inverted Bil but it'd be a bit more luck than what he has now because he's on his side and out of this bout unless Low Blow can help him back over but it looks like he isn't going to.

BR: 10............9............8.........7..........6...........5...........4
.........3............2.............1.........stop the match!

SS: There you have it, Low Blow advancing to the finals. It's time to make it official.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 25 seconds. The winner, by a knockout......in the red corner, LOW BLOW!

SS: Only one more spot for the championship and it'll either be Techno Destructo or Double Chaos.

BD: This should be an easy one for Double Chaos but we'll see. Double Chaos uses it's powerful flipping arm to get this far and was built by George Francis of England. Techno Destructo has an equally powerful flipper but he'll have to avoid Double Chaos' repeated attacks.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Double Chaos doing numerous flips on Techno Destructo early on in this bout. Now Techno Destructo underneath and with a chance to topple Double Chaos but his weapon broke off so Double Chaos must've been too heavy to lift and that'll leave TD very vulnerable to flipping.

BD: Though now TD can run inverted, Sean so it's not all bad here.

SS: What a toss there by Double Chaos! Techno Destructo just taking some relentless punishment here and he really doesn't have anything to stop it, Bil.

BD: Double Chaos having no trouble at all flipping Techno Destructo but it looks like he's out of CO2 gas because he's not flipping anymore.

SS: This match is just about over anyway and I don't have any doubt in in my mind that Double Chaos will fight in the championship against Low Blow.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 34 to 2 decision for the winner and advancing to the championship finals........the red square, DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: It all comes down to this as we have two bots left so let's go straight to Mark Beiro for the intros.

MB: This is for the Battlebots championship. Introducing in the red square: Now that he's in the finals, he'll deliver the final blow and they call him LOW BLOW! And in the blue square: He's got a heart of solid aluminum, wheels of steel and one step away from the championship. Welcome DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's championship robot fightin' time! Take a look at the flip delivered by Double Chaos!

BD: Low Blow can self-right and he's done that but it looks like he's lost half of his mobility, Sean. Those skirts also are where the wheels are connected so if they go, that separates the connection and those wheels stop working.

SS: That'll mean that Double Chaos has a real chance of winning this bout as he continues to toss Low Blow, who is down to one skirt and still only half of his mobility. Double Chaos on top of Low Blow there but Low Blow can't push him around because his drive got removed. Low Blow on his back but he can't seem to self-right because he's stuck under the Spike Strip and now with the Pulverizor.

BD: Now Low Blow is completely off the ground so he's not getting out of there, Sean and his driver's referee is counting him out now.

RR: 3.........2............1.........stop the match!
SS: The results are in so lets go to the arena.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes 38 seconds. The winner, by a knockout and Battlebots champion of the world..........the blue square, DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: What an intense season of robot fighting, Bil.
BD:  You said it, Sean. It's hard to believe that it's over after all the fun we've had here.

SS: Well we're not quite done as we have the giant nut presentation with Mark Beiro.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: I present to you the Battlebot that tossed it's opponents sky high and never surrendered, DOUBLE CHAOS! Accepting the award is George Francis!

SS: Double Chaos taking home another championship nut so for Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. We hope you've enjoyed another season of robotic carnage and we leave you now with the best hits of the tournament.

Episode 25

BD: We're going to end round 3 with 2 final battles as Twin Paradox and Mechavore tear each other up with their deadly blades.

SS: Then New Cruelty tries to see how low Low Blow can go.

BD: Finally we start round 4 with a battle of the flippers between Deadblow and Double Chaos.

SS: You're watching Battlebots and I'm Sean Salisbury with my fellow commentator Bil Dwyer. This Battlebots tournament has provided all of us, including you viewers out there with some awesome robotic combat and my partner is about to give you some more destruction involving our first pair of tonight's robots.

BD: Twin Paradox houses a front spinning blade and a rear plow, hence the name. His builder is Michael Neese of Charlotte, North Carolina. Mechavore was built by Robert Marzinske of Tempe, Arizona and features its own horizontal blade and rear wedge.

SS: Now it's time for the calm before the brawl with Mark Beiro.

MB: This is Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: You can't phone a friend, you can't use a lifeline but you can face certain death against MECHAVORE! And in the blue square: He's all over the news and he's all over your for the next 3 minutes because he's TWIN PARADOX!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
ROBERT: I am ready!
RR: Mechavore is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MICHAEL: Yes.
BR: Twin Paradox is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechavore coming out with that rear wedge to possibly deflect the blows of Twin Paradox's blade and so far it seems to be working as Twin Paradox is just flying over Mechavore's rear wedge. Oh my goodness, Twin Paradox's blade has been torn off and that's a pretty big loss as that gave Twin Paradox at least some defense against Mechavore.

BD: Twin Paradox is also well constructed, Sean. We haven't seen him take much more damage than losing his blade so far but Mechavore is underneath Twin Paradox right now and now Twin Paradox has no weapons at all, Sean.

SS: Now he's very vulnerable to Mechavore's wedge or blade but take a look at that, Mechavore's rear wedge is gone now but Mechavore is still balanced because of the axle for his weapon and that's all he's got right now.

BD: Both bots weaponless now but Mechavore is on his back but since he lost that blade, he lost his self-righting mechanism also and he's under the Pulverizor so this one could be over but there's not much time left.

SS: His referee is counting down Mechavore, who was dominating this fight until his weapons were lost and now this is Twin Paradox's victory. Let's get the official decision.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 55 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the blue corner, TWIN PARADOX!

SS: What a disappointment for Mechavore as he is such a destructive bot, Bil.

BD: He just never seems to have the luck in Battlebots to make it to the finals but someone will so here's our next fight. Low Blow is probably our lowest robot in Battlebots since Biohazard's skirts have been off the ground since Phase 6.0. Low Blow's builder is Wray Russ from Brentwood, California. New Cruelty is a sturdy 4-wheeled machine built by Richard Stuplich of Wasaw, Wisconsin and features a front plow for it's weapon.

SS: Now that Bil has shared his knowledge, Mark Beiro will share his introductions with us.

MB: Introducing in the red square: All he wants for Christmas is destruction and domination. Here is NEW CRUELTY! And in the blue square: That red dot in it's center isn't for a doughnut with strawberry filling. It's where he'll put you when he's going to finish you off with the Pulverizor. It's LOW BLOW!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
RICHARD: I am ready.
RR: New Cruelty is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MICHAEL: *nods*
BR: Low Blow is ready!
SS: I'll let you do the honors, Bil.
BD: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time!

SS: A bang-up job, Bil now let's see the robots do the same and already it seems obvious that New Cruelty isn't low enough at the front to get underneath Low Blow  and is taking punishment from the arena hazards.

BD: New Cruelty, so sturdy though so he won't take much damage from the hazards.

SS: New Cruelty on his back now and while he can run this way, his chances of getting underneath are even less now and he's more vulnerable to Low Blow's attacks.

BD: That's it for New Cruelty unless he's in reach with the Pulverizor so he can get back over but I guess not.

RR: 10............9...........8...........7...........6..........5.........4......
3.........2..........1.........stop the match!

SS: So that's two bouts that have ended in KO just before the buzzer but for New Cruelty's sake, I don't think he stood a chance in a Judges Decision since he couldn't attack, much like Suicidal Tendencies couldn't get under Biohazard's design in Season 2. I'm kind of hoping we'll get at least one Judges Decision tonight, Bil but if not, that's the way it goes.

BD: It could happen, Sean but we'll have to wait and see. Here comes a grudge match as Double Chaos lost against Deadblow in the first round 3 seasons ago. Deadblow was built by Grant Imahara of Oakland, California and features a pneumatic flipper at the front. Similarly, Double Chaos also has a front flipper but was built by George Francis from the UK.

SS: Let's go down to the box for the introductions.
MB: Introducing in the red square: They say nice robots finish last but not if you have a grudge like this one. Here is DOUBLE CHAOS! And in the blue square: His victims have warned you not to enter the arena because they know you're facing DEADBLOW!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
GEORGE F: Yep, I'm ready.
RR: Double Chaos is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
GRANT: I am ready.
BR: Deadblow is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Double Chaos on the attack early by tossing Deadblow once and twice.

BD: Deadblow has to get at the side or rear of Double Chaos because his flipper isn't low enough, Sean but he gets a flip there but Double Chaos comes right back with another flip. This is going to be a very close fight unless it turns out like the other two with a knockout right before the bell.

SS: Deadblow nearly out of the arena there but at the same time Double Chaos nearly on his side there and both able to get away. Deadblow taking punishment right on his flipping arm from the Pulverizor there and I think that'll affect the flipper's ability to return to the ground after a flip.

BD: So far, Sean I think you're right about that as it seems to get stuck near the ground so Double Chaos has no problem getting underneath but I think in some ways, Double Chaos incidentally helps the flipper back into place as it did there and Deadblow got in another flip but Double Chaos is still upright.

SS: This bout is probably barely in favor of Double Chaos as we're winding down in this bout and I don't think a knockout is going to happen here, Bil.

BD: You are correct, my friend. What a fight between these two.

SS: Let's not keep you all in suspense any longer and get right to the decision.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 30 to 20 decision for.............the red corner, DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: Double Chaos getting some payback after losing his title to Deadblow. Bil, talk about those replays.

BD: In the first of two knockouts before the bell, Mechavore lost his blade and his chance at beating Twin Paradox. Then, Low Blow made New Cruelty's final destination to be on his side and out of the tournament. Finally, as you just saw, Double Chaos takes back some pride in defeating Deadblow.

SS: For Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. Only a few more battles left before we crown our new champ. Goodnight.

Episode 24

SS: Round 3 has already started but the destruction will continue as Mechanized Bird hunts down Deadblow.

BD: Then in a grudge match, Diesector battles it out against the improved Techno Destructo.

SS: Finally Hazard wants to push ShoveMaster2000 around the arena and out of the tournament. Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and we all know my bot destruction-hungry friend, Bil Dwyer. We've got another 3 bouts for you this week and each one will be action-packed.

BD: Now things are really getting going, Sean as the losers are weeded out by the winners and speaking of winners, we'll have one after our first fight. Mechanized Bird was built by Ian Lewis and features a crushing jar and front scoop. Ian and his team are from Bournemouth. Grant Imahara's Deadblow has a front flipper as a weapon. Grant is from Oakland, California.

SS: Mark Beiro has the intros ready.
MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing, in the red square: When it comes to getting the beak, you're his next victim. Here is MECHANIZED BIRD! And in the blue square: If he lowers his head, it's not to bow before you, and it's not to give your feet a manicure, it's to test your weakness with DEADBLOW!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
IAN: I am ready!
RR: Mechanized Bird is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
GRANT: Yes.
BR: Deadblow is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin time! Mechanized Bird on the attack early but Deadblow able to get away to avoid punishment. Both robots seem to give each other a disadvantage against their opponent as they miss on an attempt.

BD: The wedge on Mechanized Bird is practically on the ground, Sean so it's a lot harder for Deadblow to get underneath but Deadblow's weapon got pinned by Mechanized Bird's weapon and is taking a beating from the Pulverizor!

SS: Deadblow with a sneak attack flip to put Mechanized Bird on his side but those wings there on Mechanized Bird allow him to get back in this fight. Mechanized Bird on his side again but seems to be having trouble getting back over, Bil.

BD: He's up against the wall, Sean. Same thing happened with Gamma Raptor in Phase 5.0's Lightweight final because Gamma Raptor got stuck on the Spike Strip but couldn't self-right because his weapon wasn't fully on the arena floor and a similar thing is happening here except that Mechanized Bird self-rights from the side so he needs that extra room to tip back over but there's no room for that with him against the wall.

SS: This one is over and Deadblow overcomes Mechanized Bird in a stunning knockout. Take us to our next bout, Bil.

BD: You got it, buddy. Donald Hudson's Diesector has front jaws and a rear wedge. Donald is from San Diego, California. Techno Destructo has a powerful flipping arm at its disposal and was built by Sean Irvin of Melbourne Florida.

SS: Let's go down to the arena for the introductions.
MB: Introducing in the red square: Just to prove how bad he is, he'll take off your leg and put it on the ground. It's DIESECTOR! And in the blue square: Forget the Tin man not having a heart, if you only could defeat TECHNO DESTRUCTO!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
DONALD: I am ready!
RR: Diesector is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
SEAN: *nods*
BR: Techno Destructo is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Techno Destructo with a flip attempt but unable to complete the flip. Diesector not doing much himself though because he can't get underneath that flipper of Techno Destructo. Techno Destructo with another attempt but he flips himself. It just takes timing to get these flips right and Techno Destructo so far unable to complete a flip.

BD: Diesector flipped finally but he can run either way up so it doesn't really hurt him, Sean.

SS: Another miss by Techno Destructo and now Diesector taking advantage of this by delivering him to the Spike Strip. Techno Destructo now back in this and tosses Diesector back over and the arena Killsaws and Pulverizor give Diesector some punishment as this bout ends. Now it's up to the judges to decide who goes through to meet Deadblow in the next round.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 20 to 11 decision for............the blue square, TECHNO DESTRUCTO!

SS: Not too much of a surprise there but it was a little closer because of Techno Destructo's missed timing with his flipping. Well there's still one more bout left and Bil has more.

BD: Hazard has a front wedge and an overhead spinning bar for weapons. His builder is Tony Buchignani of Los Angeles, California. ShoveMaster2000 has a front scoop to push his opponent's all around the arena. Its builder is Ramiro Mallari from San Francisco, California.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Hazard on the attack early and able to get right underneath the sturdy ShoveMaster. Oh there goes Hazard's blade so if he's flipped now, it's all over for Hazard but ShoveMaster can't get underneath the low wedge design of Hazard, who continues to dominate this fight.

BD: ShoveMaster2000 is on his side right now so his mobility in the arena is really limited, Sean.

SS: It's good to have at least some mobility to move around the arena just so you can show the judges and referees that you're still alive but with ShoveMaster on his back, his scoop is useless now so Hazard can continue to dominate this fight and we're winding down in this bout now so it looks like Hazard will move on to join the winners.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 21 to 4 decision for.........the red corner, Hazard!

SS: So as we thought, Hazard will move on and this tournament is going to get tougher for those still in it but that also proves your bot is just as tough. Take us through the replays, Bil.

BD: In a stunning upset, Deadblow toppled Mechanized Bird to fight another day. Then Techno Destructo tossed Diesector all over the arena to earn another spot in this tournament. Finally, Hazard took the shove out of ShoveMaster2000 to continue fighting for that glorious trophy.

SS: Well for Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury. 

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer, hopin' that you'll join us next time as we continue the Semis. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 1

Episode 23

BD: We're kickin' off tonight with our last 2 bouts to fill up round 3 as Tentomushi 9.0 takes on New Cruelty.

SS: Then Panic Attack III wants to show Low Blow just how low he can go.

BD: Then we start round 3 with Double Chaos against Sabotage.

SS: Welcome to another exciting chapter of Battlebots. I'm Sean Salisbury and as always I have a partner Bil Dwyer.

BD: We've had a long road to get here so far, Sean and our first pair will extend that road. Tentomushi 9.0 was built by Lisa Winter from Walnut Creek, California and features its signature capturing dome as its weapon. New Cruelty is the creation of Richard Stuplich, whom hails from Wasaw Wisconsin, and has a front plow for a weapon.

SS: Now that the pre-robot intros are done, let's go to Mark Beiro for the real introductions.

MB: Introducing in the red square: She's pretty and cute but she'll leave you disabled and bloody. Here is TENTOMUSHI 9.0! And in the blue square: If you thought his crime spree was intense last time, wait until you see his NEW CRUELTY!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
LISA: I am ready.
RR: Tentomushi 9.0 is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
RICHARD: Ready!
BR: New Cruelty is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots seem to be evenly matched here as they can't seem to get under their opponent at all yet.

BD: The plow on New Cruelty isn't low enough to get underneath Tentomushi, Sean. Either that or Lisa Winter prepared her bot well for this match.

SS: New Cruelty certainly now showing the cruelty part of his name as he is taking Tentomushi to the arena hazards and has now flipped her over.

BD: As long as she has that shell functioning, Sean, she can right herself and she'll need that to stay alive in this fight.

SS: Yes she will and it's a lot more solid now than it was back in Phase 5.0 and earlier where it was constantly torn up. Tentomushi on her back again now but back over quickly and taking another shot from the Pulverizor. Take a look at New Cruelty as he's on his back now but because of his design, he can continue to fight but is it a lot harder now, Bil?

BD: New Cruelty's design is like most wedge bots nowadays, Sean. When they're inverted, they lose the wedge and are at at a disadvantage like New Cruelty is here but it looks like New Cruelty will get some help from the Pulverizor before the buzzer.

SS: This should be an interesting decision as both robots are still mobile. Here's Mark Beiro with the results.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 31 to 9 decision for...........the blue corner, NEW CRUELTY!

SS: Well that was a little more lopsided than I thought but there you have it. New Cruelty will now wait for his next opponent and it'll be either Low Blow or Panic Attack 3 so my partner Bil can tell ya more about those two.

BD: Panic Attack 3 is Kim Davies' creation from Whales and features electric lifting forks. Low Blow uses his low to the ground design to take advantage of his opponents' inability to get underneath. Its builder is Wray Russ from Brentwood, California.

SS: Mark Beiro is in the box and ready with the intros.
MB: Introducing in the red square: Its front forks will leave you in worse pain than a pile of knives. Introducing PANIC ATTACK 3! And in the blue square: He doesn't take congratulations from other robots, he delivers pounding blows on his opponents. Here is LOW BLOW!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
KIM: Yes I am.
RR: Panic Attack 3 is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
WRAY: I am.
BR: Low Blow is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Panic Attack 3 looks to be in trouble already as we see Low Blow getting underneath and slamming him into the Screws.

BD: This is starting to remind me of Biohazard vs Suicidal Tendencies from Season 2, Sean. Panic Attack can't get underneath the low design of Low Blow at all. This is pretty much going to be a one-sided fight.

SS: The Pulverizor is in the middle of the arena so something happened there as Panic Attack pushes it aside but can't get underneath Low Blow at all. Low Blow taking a little punishment from the Killsaws there but I don't think it'll be enough at all, Bil.

BD: Me either, Sean. I think the judges are thinking the same.
SS: Let's find out with Mark Beiro.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27 to 2 decision for............the blue corner, LOW BLOW!

SS: Low Blow clearly dominating that fight to complete round 2. What do you have for our 1s pair in round 3, Bil?

BD: Quite a bit, Sean. Here's how these two got here. Double Chaos took out last season's champ Dantomkia by flipping it over and leaving it trapped under the Spikes. Double Chaos has its powerful flipper for a weapon and its builder is George Francis of Ipswich. Then it took over Complete Control. Sabotage had a free win in round 1 and took out Son of Whyachi in round 2. Sabotage also has a flipping arm and is invertible. Its builder is Matt Sabotino of Greenwood, Indiana.

MB: Introducing in the red square: It only takes one strike from its pneumatic flipper to leave you senseless. It's DOUBLE CHAOS! And in the blue square: He specializes in taking away your chances of victory and replaces them with defeat. Here is SABOTAGE!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
GEORGE F: I'm ready!
RR: Double Chaos is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MATT: I am ready!
BR: Sabotage is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage in trouble there but able to get away before being flipped. There you see Double Chaos using that flipper that has gotten him this far in the tournament. Double Chaos taking a little punishment from the Pulverizor and from Sabotage's own flipper.

BD: Looks like Sabotage found the weak spot of Double Chaos but I think he has more weak spots than Double Chaos, Sean.

SS: Double Chaos seems to be using those to his advantage throughout this bout as he is tossing Sabotage all around the arena but getting another flip there from Sabotage. Another flip from Double Chaos and that seems to have Sabotage caught on the Spike Strip but there's not enough time to count him out so we'll see what the judges say.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 21 to 2 decision for.......... the red square, DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: Another utter dominant fight to close tonight's episode. Bil take us through the highlights.

BD: New Cruelty squashes the ladybug Tentomushi 9.0 to enter round 3. Then, Low Blow completely dominates Panic Attack 3 for the final slot in round 3 and round 3 started off with Double Chaos throwing Sabotage out of the tournament.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. We'll be there to bring you more fighting robots next time. Goodnight.

SS: After tonight, Hazard will have his next victim and it will be either Nightmare or ShoveMaster2000.

BD: Ziggo wants to tear up Twin Paradox.
SS: Mechavore rounds out tonight with his battle of the blades against The Master. Welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Sean Salisbury and my partner as always loves robot fighting as much as I do, Bil Dwyer.

BD: You know it, Sean. I love every minute in these fights and we have a half-hour full of it tonight starting with our first bout. Nightmare was built by Jim Smentowski of Rohnert Park, California has a deadly vertical blade and can run upside down. ShoveMaster2000 was built by Ramiro Mallari from San Francisco, California and has a front scoop for its weapon.

SS: A wonderful job as always Bil, now let's hear from Mark Beiro.

MB: Introducing in the red square: Too bad the dream you just had wasn't real because now your defeat isn't a dream it's from NIGHTMARE! And in the blue square: Nothing's going to stop him from his next victim because he's SHOVEMASTER2000!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
JIM: I am ready!
RR: Nightmare is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
RAMIRO: Ready!
BR: ShoveMaster2000 is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots on the attack early and they seem to have all of their weaknesses covered, Bil as they bounce off one another.

BD: Nightmare seems to be stuck under the Spike Strip and none of the hazards can free him at all, Sean, so this one is over and you can see his wheels are off the ground.

RR: 10..............9..............8..........7..........6........5..........4....
3............2............1...........stop the match!

SS: Nightmare out early in this bout so let's go to Mark Beiro.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time 42 seconds. The winner, by a knockout........ in the blue corner SHOVEMASTER2000!

SS: ShoveMaster2000 ends nightmare's dreams of being champion. Bil, talk about our next bout for us.

BD: Jonathan Ridder's Ziggo is a spinbot with teeth on the sides and a self-righting flag. Jonathan is from San Jose, California. Twin Paradox has its front disk and rear plow, hence the name. Its builder is Michael Neese of Charlotte, North Carolina.

SS: Mark Beiro has more on these two Battlebots.
MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: Out for avenging the cat it was born from by decimating its opponents is ZIGGO! And in the blue square: There's nothing confusing about its overall strategy: Destroy all who oppose him! It's TWIN PARADOX!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
JONATHAN: I am ready.
RR: Ziggo is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MICHAEL: Yes I am.
BR: Twin Paradox is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's once again robot fightin' time! Look at the damage already being done to Ziggo by Twin Paradox!

BD: Ziggo's shell has been damaged before like in his previous fight, which he won but here he's up against a much sturdier bot.

SS: Take a look at Twin Paradox stuck on the Spike Strip and the Killsaws while Ziggo just remaining away to avoid further damage.

BD: The Killsaws don't seem to have enough power to get Twin Paradox off the Spike Strip but Ziggo is losing his shell.

SS: There you go, Twin Paradox free and it looks to me like Ziggo is incapacitated, Bil.

RR: 10..........9...........8..........7.......6..........5.........4..........
3...........2.........1..........stop the match!

SS: Twin Paradox taking up another spot from round 3 but let's make it official.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 35 seconds. The winner, by a knockout........in the blue square, TWIN PARADOX!

SS: No question about it that Twin Paradox controlled the fight except for the brief time he was on the Spike Strip so it's pretty clear that he would've won the judges decision if it had gone that far.

BD: I agree, Sean. It was a pretty much lopsided match overall. Here's our final pair. The Master is the creation of Mark Setrakian and features a horizontal spinning disc. Mark is from Los Angeles, California. Its opponent is Mechavore, who is also armed with a front horizontal disk and a rear wedge. Its builder is Robert Marzinske of Tempe, Arizona.

SS: Now Mark Beiro is ready so let's hear the intros.
MB: Introducing in the red square: He likes to roam around the Battlebox early in the morning to find out the best way to defeat his opponents. Here is MECHAVORE! And in the blue square: He has earned the specialized degree in robotic annihilation. Welcome THE MASTER!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
ROBERT: I am ready!
RR: Mechavore is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MARK: I am ready!
BR: The Master is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechavore and The Master have lost their back wedges and are now locked together with their blades!

BD: It's like when two deer are fighting and they lock antlers.
SS: If they can't separate, then this match will be paused so that they can be but it looks like they're using the Killsaws to help and they do just that.

BD: Without that back wedge, The Master is off-balance and his blade touches the Battlebox floor but Mechavore is designed for this with that extra caster where the blade axel is to allow him to stay upright. The only problem with it is it can get caught in the Killsaw slot and we've seen that with Dreadnought in earlier bouts.

SS: The Master is too close to the Pulverizor and pays the price by being flipped but is able to get back over and continue this fight. So far, this is all Mechavore as we're winding down in this bout and even though Mechavore took some damage from the attack on The Master, I have him winning on my scorecard but let's see if he's going to win this bout as this one is over.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 24 to 15 decision for........the red corner, MECHAVORE!

SS: Well another great episode is over and done so take us through the highlights, Bil.

BD: In a quick knockout, ShoveMaster2000 left Nightmare helpless under the Spike Strip. Then, Ziggo was torn apart by the vicious Twin Paradox. Finally, Mechavore advances after out-doing The Master.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury wishing you a great weekend.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as we finish out the 2nd round and dive into the 3rd. See ya.

Season 3, Episode 10

BD: Killerhurtz wants to make Techno Destructo his next victim.

SS: Then Dreadnaught hopes to tear up Diesector
BD: Finally, Hazard puts his weapons to the might of Atomic Wedgie.

SS: This is Battlebots and I'm Sean Salisbury with my metal munching partner Bil Dwyer.

BD: Three good lookin' fights tonight, Sean. One of which is a grudge match from Phase 5.0 and that's our second bout. Speakin' of bouts, let's get to our first one. Killerhurtz has a battleaxe on top and was built by Jon Reid of Oxford, England. Techno Destructo features a powerful flipping arm and was built by Sean Irvin of Melbourne Florida.

SS: Mark Beiro is ready with the intros.
MB: Introducing first in the red square: He's got the beak of doom and he's ready to use it on all of your innards. Its KILLERHURTZ! And in the blue square:  If you need a leg up, this robot isn't your best pick as he'll leave you with one less leg to stand on. Here is TECHNO DESTRUCTO!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
JON: I am ready!
RR: Killerhurtz is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
SEAN: Ready!
BR: Techno Destructo is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Techno Destructo using his flipper right away in this bout and putting Killerhurtz on his back but Killerhurtz is back in this fight in no time at all.

BD: A rare sight here, Sean. Techno Destructo has his weapon caught in the side of Killerhurtz, allowing Killerhurtz to give Techno Destructo a taste of the Screws.

SS: There you go, Techno Destructo able to get away and delivers another toss with his flipper but Killerhurtz again able to get back over. Killerhurtz now on the attack but is tossed again and is on his side up against the Screws.

BD: That side panel of Killerhurtz actually balances Killerhurtz on his side so he can't tip over onto his weapon to self-right and it's over for him.

RR: 10..............9..............8..............7..............6................5
............4..............3.............2...........1............stop the match!

SS: Techno Destructo giving utter domination to Killerhurtz. Let's get the official decision.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 30 seconds. The winner, by a knock out in the blue square, TECHNO DESTRUCTO!

SS: So Killerhurtz is out for this season and Techno Destructo takes a spot for round 3. Tell us about our next bout, Bil.

BD: Don Hutsons Diesector has front jaws and a rear wedge.  Don is from San Diego, California. Dreadnaught is the creation of Christian Carlberg of Santa Monica, California and features a rear wedge and front horizontal blade.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dreadnaught on the defensive here as he doesn't want Diesector's jaws to get underneath him. Take a look at that as Dreadnaught is underneath Diesector and takes him to the Pulverizor, which lands a blow on Diesector as do the Killsaws. Another blow by Dreadnaught and this time it's against the Spikes!

BD: This is already turning out to be a great fight, Sean.
SS: Yes it is as Dreadnaught flips Diesector but Diesector is able to operate either way up. Oh my goodness, Dreadnaught lost his front saw and the plate that holds it down! This could really be a turn around for Donald Hutson as he is now delivering punishment to Dreadnaught!

SS: We're winding down in this bout and I'm just amazed at the comeback from Diesector as Dreadnaught is now being pushed into the corner with the Pulverizor and this one's over! This is going to be a close decision so let's go to Mark Beiro.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 28 to 25 decision for............the red square, DIESECTOR!

SS: What an upset for Dreadnaught and Christian Carlberg. We've got one more bout left and Bil's going to tell us more.

BD: Hazard is Tony Buchignani's creation and features a front wedge and overhead spinning bar. Tony is from Los Angeles, California. Atomic Wedgie has spinning side tri-foils and a front wedge. Its builder is Robert Everhart of Columbia, Maryland.

SS: Mark Beiro has the info on these robots.
MB: Introducing in the red square: He's got a wedge with an edge, a blade for pain and a heart made of cold steel, it's HAZARD! And in the blue square: He'll turn you into the toxic waste when he's finished with you. Here is ATOMIC WEDGIE!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
TONY: I am ready!
RR: Hazard is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
ROBERT: I am.
BR: Atomic Wedgie is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Hazard underneath Atomic Wedge as we start this bout.

BD: You'd generally think that it should be the other way around since Atomic Wedgie's wedge is thinner than Hazard's but Hazard's is lower to the ground and is able to get underneath.

SS: Hazard on the attack again now and Atomic Wedgie taking more punishment.

BD: Hazard lost his front wedge, which could really hurt his chances of winning this bout, Sean but right now he and Atomic Wedge are on their heads but able to get back over.

SS: Hazard now a little more cautious of Atomic Wedge as you said earlier Bil that that could be Hazard's disadvantage and that seems to be the case here as Atomic Wedgie slams Hazard into the Spike Strips but is now on his back end and Hazard is able to get away!

BD: A little weight balance helping Hazard out here and he's going on to round 3.

BR: 10.........9.........8.........7..........6.........5........4.........3.....
2.........1.........stop the match!

SS: Hazard goes through after a near fatal collision with Atomic Wedgie so let's get the final results.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 0 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the red square, HAZARD!

SS: What another great episode of Battlebots that has turned out to be so Bil, let us relive the action again.

BD: Techno Destructo killed the axe-wielding power of Killerhurtz in our first bout. Diesector made a complete turn-around by delivering two devastating blows and took the narrow win. Finally, Hazard dominates Atomic Wedgie to move on.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Skarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. Just remember that we'll have more action to quench your thirst for violence next time. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 9

SS: Sabotage has a new look and hopes to toss Son of Whyachi.

BD: Last season's semi-finalist Mechanized Bird wants to leave Ronin MKII a tangled mess.

SS: Finally, Dr Inferno Jr. has a house call with Deadblow and hopes to give him the prescription of defeat. Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and as always to my right is Bil Dwyer.

BD: These matches tonight, Sean, are looking intense. Here's how our first pair looks. Matt Sabotino's Sabotage got a make-over from the last tournament and now has a more powerful flipping arm. Matt comes from Greenwood, Indiana. Terry Ewart's Son of Whyachi features front and rear plows in addition to its overhead hammers. Terry is from Dorchester, Wisconsin.

SS: Thank you very much as always, Bil. Now here's Mark Beiro.

MB: Introducing in the red square to my right: His overhead hammers will leave you speechless as he takes your head off while you watch in awe. Here is SON OF WHYACHI! And in the blue square: Consider your plans of victory already out the window because this robot has no intention of losing. It's SABOTAGE!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
TERRY: I am ready!
RR: Son of Whyachi is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MATT: Ready!
BR: Sabotage is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! How about that early flip from Sabotage and Son of Whyachi is on top of the Screws.

BD: This doesn't matter to Son of Whyachi because new this season, he can self-right if he lands there, which he did so he's back in this fight, Sean.

SS: Looks like Sabotage's new design is working perfectly as Son of Whyachi is getting another toss into the air but all of his wheels are off the ground now, Bil.

BD: Not where SOW wants to be because now he can't move and the Screws aren't helping him here either so Sabotage is going to go through in a quick win.

RR: 10...........9..............8.............7..............6...........5.........
4.............3...............2.............1............stop the match!

SS: Two quick flips have done Son of Whyachi in so let's hear from Mark Beiro.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time 50 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the blue square SABOTAGE!

SS: There you have it, Sabotage movin' on. Bil, tell us about our next bout.

BD: Mechanized Bird has a vicious crushing arm and front scoop. Its builder is Ian Lewis from England. Ronin MKII was built by Peter Abrahamson from Burbank, California and features Ronin's classic saw blade and a front plow.

SS: You receive my gratitude, Bil as with our other crew here for their constant outstanding work here but now it's time for the introductions.

MB: Introducing in the red square: If you ask him to show you what his saw can do, he'll take off your arm. Here is RONIN MKII! And in the blue square: There are two kinds of crushes. Those from love and those from MECHANIZED BIRD!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechanized Bird coming out on the attack early in this bout and delivering punishment on Ronin MKII.

BD: I think we'll see a lot more of that but as I say it, Mechanized Bird can't seem to get his scoop underneath.

SS: Mechanized Bird underneath once again and dragging him to the Pulverizor, which is doing a number on that rear plow of Ronin MKII.

BD: Looks like Mechanized Bird wants to keep dealing damage himself but Ronin MKII doesn't appear to have any mobility, Sean.

SS: His wheels are moving but I think the damage to that plow has left him high-centered and we're seeing his referee count him down in this bout.

BD: Mechanized Bird proving himself again just like last season.

SS: Mechanized Bird dominating throughout and Mark Beiro has the results.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 22 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the blue corner, MECHANIZED BIRD!

SS: Well no surprise there as Ronin MKII couldn't drive anymore after those Pulverizor hits. Bil, how about our third bout?

BD: I know a lot, Sean. Dr Inferno Jr. was created by Jason Bardis and features anti-wedge skirts, a saw on one arm and a drill on the other. Jason comes from Santa Barbra, California. Deadblow has a front flipping arm and was built by Grant Imahara from Oakland, California.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Deadblow taking punishment from Dr Inferno Jr.

BD: It's kind of surprising that the Dr is able to get underneath the flipper of Deadblow but I think it'll be more surprising if Deadblow can get his flipper underneath the Dr. Oh man, right as I say it, Deadblow gets underneath and flips Dr Inferno Jr.! That's it for the good Dr though. Those arms can't get him back over when he's on his head. A short and sweet fight.

SS: Deadblow will advance to round 3 so here's Mark Beiro.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute. The winner, by a knockout in the blue square, DEADBLOW!

SS: Another great episode of Battlebots. Hope you've enjoyed it as much as we have so for Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer, remindin' you that if you're crying about this episode ending, make it be tears of joy that you watched those glorious fights. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 8

BD: Tonight will mark the end of round one and the start of the elimination battles as T-Minus returns with a new design to test against Low Blow.

SS: Then for the final round 1 bout, Panic Attack 3 tries to put out the perfect storm robot Whirlwind.

BD: Then we kick-off round 2 with Double Chaos hoping to take control of Complete Control.

SS: This is Battlebots where only one robot can claim the glory of the giant nut. Hello I'm Sean Salisbury and I've got a partner next to me named Bil Dwyer, whom is just as amped up as I am about these battles.

BD: More amped up than the robots' batteries, Sean. We've got some great bouts tonight like our first one with T-Minus and Low Blow. T-Minus comes back sturdier and better with his new flipping arm and the ability to run upside down if necessary. His builder is Reason Bradley from Sausalito, California. Low Blow returns after his defeat in Season 5 with his low to the ground design. His builder is Wray Russ from Brentwood, California.

SS: Here are the intros from Mark Beiro.
MB: Introducing in the red square: If you think this is just a speed bump on the way to your next match, you'll be getting a bumping and a bruising from LOW BLOW! And in the blue square: You have 3 minutes to stop his plans before he blasts you into the next tournament. It's T-MINUS!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
WRAY: I am ready.
RR: Low Blow is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
REASON: Ready!
BR: T-Minus is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Low Blow on the attack early and T-Minus having trouble getting any part of his flipper underneath.

BD: Low Blow is also very slippery on top so T-Minus will just slide right off, which should help him.

SS: Both the Killsaws and the Pulverizors give punishment to both T-Minus and Low Blow.

BD: T-Minus really doesn't have anything right now, Sean. He has a powerful weapon but against Low Blow, it's not flat enough at the front to slip underneath the low design of Low Blow.

SS: Low Blow controlling this fight but taking damage from the arena hazards but look at T-Minus taking advantage of Low Blow being off the ground and now Low Blow is on his back with pieces on the arena floor!

BD: That's the kind of thing we know and love about T-Minus, Sean but Low Blow can self-right from there so he's back in this but looks like that flip did something to half the drive train of Low Blow. There isn't much time left so not much can be done but T-Minus putting on somewhat of a show here.

SS: That late flip might be enough so let's hear from Mark Beiro.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 21 to 5 decision for...........the red square, LOW BLOW!

SS: T-Minus out already, which is a disappointment for Reason Bradley's team and the rest of us who wanted to see domination by T-Minus but that's the way it goes on Battlebots. We've got another two bouts left so here's Bil to tell you about our next one.

BD: Panic Attack 3 has those powerful lifting forks and was built by Kim Davies from Whales. Andrew Marchant has added a front scoop to Whirlwind to hopefully get underneath Panic Attack. Andrew comes from Huntington, England.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! A big blow by Whirlwind as he is on the attack early and dominating Panic Attack 3.

BD: That scoop is pretty effective but Panic Attack is underneath the scoop and has flipped Whirlwind over, which isn't too much of a problem except Whirlwind has to drive backwards due to his drive train and that's going to leave himself very vulnerable to the lifting forks of Panic Attack 3.

SS: Panic Attack 3 continuing to dominate this fight as Whirlwind is on top of the Screws there but able to get away. This fight has become all Panic Attack as Whirlwind is now stuck under the Screws but the Screws giving him some help.  Take a look at Whirlwind as he is now completely stuck under the Screws but unable to get away and there's his referee counting him down in a major turnaround by Panic Attack 3. This one is over and Panic Attack 3 will move on. Mark Beiro has the results now.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 2 minutes 40 seconds. The winner by a knockout.......in the blue corner PANIC ATTACK 3!

SS: Whirlwind dominated by Panic Attack 3 in a pretty stunning upset, Bil. How about our last pair?

BD: Double Chaos has its powerful flipper and was built by George Francis of Ipswich. Complete Control is Derek Young's bot and has a powerful clamping arm. Derek comes from Burnaby, British Columbia.

SS: Let's go down for the intros with Mark Beiro.
MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: His strategy is always the same, utter domination is his game and they call him COMPLETE CONTROL! And in the blue square: They say two is better than one but not if it's double trouble from DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: The box is locked the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Double Chaos showing us the power of his flipper and delivering punishment to Complete Control but Complete Control back in this fight. Complete Control can't seem to get underneath Double Chaos' flipper at all, Bil.

BD: He has to come at DC from the side but right now he's on his back from being flipped again. Now we're seein' Complete Control using his arm and has um but can't lift him up completely.

SS: Look at the lifting ability of Complete Control as he has completely and successfully tossed Double Chaos on to his back. Double Chaos' weapon gets him back in this as he tosses Complete Control but it's only half a flip as Complete Control is on his side but able to self-right from there.

BD: Complete Control has Double Chaos again, Sean and he's tossing him over but where's his clamping arm? He had it on until after the flip so he must've lost it but Double Chaos is stuck under the Screws.

SS: That would be a major upset and a bit ironic considering that's how Double Chaos defeated Dantomkia in the first round of this tournament but miraculously Double Chaos is back in this and that's bad news for Complete Control.

BD: That lifting part of Complete Control can't fully right Complete Control and we can see that here as Complete Control is on his head right now.

RR: 10.........9..............8.............7.............6..............5.........
4..............3..............2............1...........stop the match!

SS: Double Chaos moving to round 3 so let's make the decision official.

MB:
Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes 58 seconds. The winner, by a knockout.........in the red corner, DOUBLE CHAOS!

SS: A great night of robot fighting. Take us through them again, Bil.

BD: Low Blow dominates T-Minus to fill another slot in round 2. Panic Attack 3 makes Whirlwind a calm wind to move into the last slot for round 2. In our last match, Complete Control lost control and it's weapon to Double Chaos.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as round 2 of this awesome Battlebots tournament unfolds. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 7

SS: First Ginsu looks to teach The Master a thing or two about defeat.

BD: Then Mauler 5150 is looking to tear up Tentomushi 9.0.
SS: Finally, FrenZy has a pounding in store for New Cruelty. This is Battlebots and I'm Sean Salisbury with my partner Bil Dwyer.

BD: A set of interesting matches tonight, Sean. Should be interesting to see who comes out on top and here's our first bout. The Master features a spinning horizontal blade and was built by Mark Setrakian of Los Angeles, California. Ginsu is the creation of Trey Roski and Greg Munson.

SS: Mark Beiro is in the box with the intros.
MB: Introducing in the red square to my right: He'll astound you with his extreme skills. He'll pound you with his spinning blade and he's known as THE MASTER! And in the blue square: He's got more hardware than Home Depot, more ways of defeating you and he's got a name called GINSU!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
MARK: I'm ready!
RR: The Master is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
GREG: We're ready!
BR: Ginsu is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots trying to find the weaknesses of one another. Ginsu has great leverage on The Master right now and gives him a little punishment into the Screws.

BD: I don't know why The Master isn't using his rear wedge to get underneath Ginsu because Ginsu has a lot of clearance under those wheels.

SS: Looks like he took your advice, Bil as we see him using that rear wedge and giving Ginsu a taste of the Screws. Ginsu taking a blow from the Killsaws and The Master has lost his rear wedge!

BD: That makes his front saw pretty much useless, Sean. Now I think this bout will be pretty even since both robots' weapons aren't that effective against one another.

SS: The Master with another couple of flips on Ginsu but Ginsu's great design lets him run almost every which way up. We're winding down in this bout and look at The Master right now as he is underneath Ginsu and puts him on his side!

BD: Worse yet, Sean is that Ginsu is just short of the Killsaws, which might have the power to put him back over if The Master is willing to but it looks like he isn't.

SS: This one's over and The Master is the victor. Let's get the final decision.


MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 50 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the red square.........THE MASTER!

SS: That's another robot advancing to round 2. Tell us about our next pair, Bil.

BD: Lisa Winter's Tentomushi 9.0 has a capturing dome weapon and Lisa comes from Walnut Creek, California. Mauler 5150 is back with its spinning flails and was built by the Tilford family of Portola Valley, California.

SS: Now it's time for the intros.
MB: Introducing, in the red square: Attempt to squash this ladybug and she'll swallow you whole. It's TENTOMUSHI 9.0! And in the blue square: He's got a nasty attitude, a wicked spinning dome and a grudge against you. It's MAULER 5150!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
LISA: Yup
RR: Tentomushi 9.0 is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
MORGAN: Absolutely!
BR: Mauler 5150 is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mauler taking a little damage from the Killsaws but manages to stay alive. Mauler now on the attack against Tentomushi and delivering some serious blows to the ladybug robot. Mauler taking a hit from the Pulverizor but continues to fight on and take a look at that, Mauler is upside down on Tentomushi's capturing dome weapon!

BD: Can Mauler self-right from there? I know he can self-right from being on his top when on the arena floor but I don't think he can here but I guess he can now but oh man, he's on his side. The Tilfords never seem to have much luck with this robot.

BR: 10...............9..................8................7...................6......
5..................4..............3..............2.............1.............stop the match!

SS: Lisa Winter moving on so here's Mark Beiro.
MB:  Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 45 seconds. The winner, by a knockout...........in the red square, TENTOMUSHI 9.0!

SS: Mauler's out until next season and Tentomushi 9.0 meets the winner of our next bout. What do you got for us on our last pair, tonight, Bil?

BD: FrenZy has its nasty Battleaxe for it's weapon and was built by Patrick Campbell of Stevenson, Ranch, California. Richard Stuplich's New Cruelty is a 4-wheeled battering ram. Richard comes from Wasaw, Wisconsin.

SS: Mark Beiro has more on these two.
MB: Introducing in the red square to my right: It's the M&M of death, the robot tenderizer and the robot in the red corner, FRENZY! And in the blue square: You'd better be ready for an abusive pounding if you're with this robot because he's 4 wheels of NEW CRUELTY!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
PATRICK: Ready!
RR: FrenZy is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
RICHARD: *nods*
BR: New Cruelty is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! FrenZy coming out right now and using its weapon against New Cruelty.

BD: New Cruelty, so sturdy and really letting FrenZy have it right now.

SS: FrenZy with a little bit of damage from the Pulverizor and more punishment from New Cruelty as he is slammed into the Screws and on his back.

BD: Now we'll get to see FrenZy's self-righting mechanism come into play and there it goes!

SS: New Cruelty flipping FrenZy again and FrenZy is having trouble there, Bil.

BD: He's on his side with his hammer above the Spike Strip so there's no way the hammer can be on the Battlebox floor to help FrenZy get back over but somehow he's managed to do that and is upright.

SS: Oh FrenZy has lost it's weapon and that's bad news for FrenZy as he'll now have no way of getting back over if New Cruelty flips him but this match is over and FrenZy is gonna survive. This fight goes the distance so let's find out who won this bout.

MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 36 to 3 decision for........the blue corner, NEW CRUELTY!

SS: Not a surprise there as New Cruelty did most of the attacking and damage in this fight. Bil, give us the replays.

BD: The Master outdid the sawed robot Ginsu to advance. Next up, Tentomushi 9.0 gave Mauler 5150 the ticket to the exit and finally, New Cruelty pounded FrenZy out of the tournament.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar, and Bill Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer, wishing you a good time before we bring you more robot destruction. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 6

BD: Tonight we continue to fulfill your hunger for robotic destruction as Ziggo hopes to thrash Vlad the Impaler.

SS: Then it's a battle of the blades as Shreds-A-Lot takes on Twin Paradox.

BD: Finally, Mechavore wants to put out Flammin' Hot Bot.
SS: Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and my partner next to me is Bil Dwyer. Another 3 bouts are lined up tonight and they should all be action-packed.

BD: That's what we're hopin' for, Sean. Our first bout features Ziggo and he has a spinning dome for a weapon. His builder is Jonathan Ridder from San Jose, California. Vlad the Impaler has front spikes for its weapon and was built by Gage Cauchois from Oakland, California.

SS: As always, thanks, Bil. Now let's hear from Mark Beiro.
MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: Worse than the cat next door and more dangerous than the atomic bomb. Here is ZIGGO! And in the blue square: You heard about him in books and articles. Now see him hurt you in the Battlebox. Welcome VLAD THE IMPALER!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
JONATHAN: I am ready!
RR: Ziggo is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
GAGE: Ready!
BR: Vlad the Impaler is ready!
SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Take a look at Vlad coming out right now and flipping Ziggo.

BD: Ziggo doesn't have a problem being flipped as he can use that flag on top to right himself in addition to showing Jonathan Ridder which way Ziggo is facing.

SS: Ziggo with a blow from the Killsaws and is once again on his back but is able to self-right.

BD: Ziggo showing some power by pushing back Vlad into the Screws.

SS: Take a look on the floor, looks like a part of Ziggo, Bil.
BD: Ziggo seems to have lost one of his flails similar to what Mauler 5150 has in that last hit by Vlad and now Ziggo is pretty much weaponless.

SS: Ziggo with another blow and Vlad is on his back end, which would be a pretty big upset for Vlad as he was doing more of the attacking than Ziggo.

RR:
10.............9..............8............7..............6...............5
.............4.................3..............2..............1...........stop the match!

BD: Tough loss for Vlad.
SS: Here's Mark Beiro with the final results.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 0 seconds.  The winner, by a knockout...... in the blue square........ZIGGO!

SS: That's Ziggo moving on to round 2. Bil, tell us about our next bout.

BD: Shreds-A-Lot is a wedge robot similar to Ankle Biter and features 3 saws inside the wedge. His builder is Christopher Hannold of Linwood, North Carolina. His opponent is Twin Paradox who features a front disk and was built by Michael Neese of Charlotte, North Carolina.

SS: It's that time again for Mark Beiro.
MB: Introducing in the red square: Looking to cut up the next meal isn't your restaurant chef but the robot in the red square, SHREDS-A-LOT! And in the blue square: When he says he's got a disk, he's not talking about a CD, a floppy disk or a DVD, he's talking about the disk he's going to use on his next victim. It's TWIN PARADOX!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots coming out on the attack but really no damage done to either of them. Oh Shreds-A-Lot on his back now but his design lets him continue this fight as Twin Paradox is letting Shreds-A-Lot take punishment from the Pulverizor. Twin Paradox now taking damage from the Killsaws but so far, this looks to be Twin Paradox's fight, Bil.

BD: I agree, Sean. However, Twin Paradox just lost his weapon to Shreds-A-Lot but is able to continue pushing him around the arena like right back to the Pulverizor and Shreds-A-Lot appears to be stuck under the Spike Strip and the Pulverizor!

SS: Twin Paradox using Shreds-A-Lot's disadvantage to his own advantage by bringing him once again to the Pulverizor, which has snapped off as it made the first blow. We're winding down here and Shreds A Lot is stuck under the Spike Strip completely. This should be a pretty close bout for the judges. The results are in so let's go to Mark Beiro.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 20 to 11 decision for....... the blue corner, TWIN PARADOX!

SS: How about that, Twin Paradox overthrowing Shreds-A-Lot to advance. Tell us about our last bout, Bil.

BD: Robert Marzinske's Mechavore has a front blade and rear wedge. Robert comes from Tempe, Arizona. Flammin' Hot Bot features a rear spike and front plow. Its builder is Charles Binns of Derby England.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Our final bout tonight is underway now as both robots havin' a hard time taking advantage of each other's weakness until Mechavore right now has torn off the front plow of Flammin' Hot Bot.

BD: Now he's really vulnerable to Mechavore.
SS: Not a lot of offense for Flammin' Hot Bot but Mechavore manages to avoid the Pulverizor there but has now lost his own rear wedge! Mechavore is really scoring the most points in this bout despite his self-inflicting damage and there goes his wedge support but look at Flammin' Hot Bot, who's down to just wheels now and very little that he can do but he's showing it by pushing Mechavore into the Screws.

BD: Despite being completely stripped of everything but his motor, Flammin' Hot Bot is hard for Mechavore to flip over but he's usin' the Killsaws to help with that.

SS: It is pretty surprising but the only way you can really incapacitate Flammin' Hot Bot is to put him on his head and that's a balancing act because every other way allows him to continue this fight. Oh Mechavore has done it but has he incapacitated himself?

BD: Mechavore able to slide off so that's it for Flammin' Hot Bot. Kudos for hanging in there. That's it.

SS: Mechavore takes the KO now let's hear from Mark Beiro.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes 50 seconds. The winner, by a knockout........in the blue square, MECHAVORE!

SS: Well we're nearly through  our first round of this Battlebots tournament and another 3 winners move on. Bil, take us through the replays.

BD: Ziggo escapes near death by taking out Vlad the Impaler. Twin Paradox gave Shreds-A-Lot a tour of the Battlebox to advance and in our last bout, Mechavore put out the Flammin' Hot Bot.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason, Sklarr and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. You'll see more robot destruction soon. See ya then.

Season 3, Episode 5

SS: Get set for some robotic mayhem as we've got Atomic Wedgie looking to defeat Overkill.

BD: Then it's a shoving match between ShoveMaster2000 and Dual Punch.

SS: Finally, Nightmare hopes to rip it up and tear apart Dr Indestructible. Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and I've got a partner next to me who loves robotic destruction as much as I do and he's Bil Dwyer.

BD: You know it, Sean. The action so far in this tournament has been incredible with some amazing knockouts and hits. Here's our first pair. Atomic Wedgie was built by Robert Everhart from Columbia Maryland and features a front wedge and side tri-foils. Overkill is the creation of Christian Carlberg and features a front wedge and an overhead blade. Christian comes from North Hollywood, California.

SS: Here's Mark Beiro, who has more on these two robots.MB: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing, in the red square: He's so dangerous that he has to fight inside the Battlebox. It's ATOMIC WEDGIE! And in the blue square: Movies like Saw II and 300 are nothing compared to what this maniacal Battlebot can do. He's OVERKILL!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Atomic Wedgie on the attack early in this bout. Oh look at the damage done to Atomic Wedgie from Overkill as he delivers punishment on the Spike Strip.

BD: That top part allows Atomic Wedgie get back over if he's flipped onto it but it's jammed at the moment, Sean so it wouldn't help him here.

SS: Well Overkill now deciding to make Atomic Wedgie lose his self-righting mechanism and Atomic Wedgie looks to be stuck on the Spike Strip. This could be all over for Atomic Wedgie but no he has freed himself from the Spikes and is now back on the attack against Overkill.

BD: Look at Overkill coming right back and flipping Atomic Wedgie onto his back end!

SS: Though Atomic Wedgie might get some help from the Pulverizor and he does so he's back in this for the 2nd time in this fight.

BD: Overkill is really being aggressive in this bout and now Atomic Wedgie can only drive in circles as Overkill took out one of Atomic Wedgie's treads and side panels.

SS: We're winding down in this bout and it's going to be a pretty close one. I don't know about you, Bil, but I can't call this fight.

BD: Neither can I, Sean. SS: We know the judges can call this fight so let's hear from Mark Beiro.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23 to 18 decision for............the red square, ATOMIC WEDGIE!

SS: Atomic Wedgie meets Hazard in round 2 but he's going to need some major repairs for that fight, Bil. Now what do you know about our next pair?

BD: ShoveMaster2000 has a front scoop and was built by Ramiro Mallari of San Francisco, California. Dual Punch has front ramming spikes and can run upside down. His builder is Chuck Pitzer from Phoenix, Arizona.

SS: Let's go to Mark Beiro who has the battle intros.MB: Introducing in the red square to my right: He's got two wheels, two spikes but only one reason to be here: defeat you! It's DUAL PUNCH! And in the blue square: Nothing is too strong for this robot and he'll make sure to prove it to anyone who doubts him. Here is SHOVEMASTER2000!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?CHUCK: ReadyRR: Dual Punch is ready!BR: Blue driver, are you ready?RAMIRO: I'm ready!BR: ShoveMaster2000 is ready!SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both robots having a hard time getting underneath but ShoveMaster2000 is showing early aggression as he flips Dual Punch.

BD: Doesn't hurt Dual Punch, though since he's designed to run upside down.

SS: The Pulverizor might as ShoveMaster is giving Dual Punch several blows from the Pulverizor. Take a look at that, ShoveMaster on his back now! I'm not too sure whether or not that'll be a disadvantage against ShoveMaster but it doesn't seem to be as he's back right-side up. Dual Punch taking damage from the Killsaws, and both robots seem to be stuck under the Screws there, Bil.

BD: ShoveMaster has tires that can get caught under the Screws but that might be because Dual Punch is on top of him.

SS: ShoveMaster letting the Pulverizor take a few more shots on Dual Punch and what a hit by ShoveMaster as Dual Punch is stuck on the Spike Strip but I don't think there's enough time to count him out.

BD: This is pretty much all ShoveMaster, Sean.SS: The vote is in and who's going through? It's up to Mark Beiro.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 36 to 4 decison for........the blue corner, SHOVEMASTER2000!

SS: No surprise there, ShoveMaster movin' on to round 2. How about tonight's last bout, Bil?

BD: Nightmare features a blade and is now invertible like his smaller brother, Backlash and was built by Jim Smentowski of Rohnert Park, California. Dr Indestructible has a horizontal blade and was built by Robert Marzinske of Tempe Arizona.


SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dr Indestructible taking Nightmare to the Pulverizor and this is what KO'd Nightmare in his Season 2 bout with Biohazard. Dr Indestructible loses his weapon!

BD: What are you going to do if you're Dr Indestructible at this point?

SS: He's not giving up that's for sure and he again is underneath Nightmare and Nightmare is on his side and against the Spike Strip!

BD: Luckily for Nightmare, though, he's near the Pulverizor, which has righted bots in the past like in our previous bout and it worked.

SS: This is going to be a close decision as we wind down this bout.

BD: That's it.SS: Who moves on and who goes home a loser? Mark Beiro has the answer.

MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27 to 16 decision for.......the red square, NIGHTMARE!

SS: There you have it, another 3 bouts decided and 3 winners moving on while the rest try and come back for next season. Bil, take us through the highlights.

BD: Atomic Wedgie scraps up a narrow win over Overkill to advance. ShoveMaster2000 was too much for Dual Punch and advances to round 2. Finally, Nightmare proves no robot is indestructible.

SS: For Heidy Mark, Randy and Jason Sklarr, and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury, saying good bye for now.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as we entertain you next time with more robotic destruction. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 4

BD: Tonight, we continue our robotic destruction as Diesector fights The Judge.

SS: Then Dooall wants to do everything to Dreadnaught.
BD: Finally, Hazard looks to chew up Alpha Raptor.
SS: Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and to relive the awesome moments of robotic combat is my partner Bil Dwyer.

BD: Thank you, Sean. Here's how our first pair looks. Diesector is the creation of Donald Hutson and features front jaws and a rear wedge. Donald comes from San Diego, California. The Judge has a fast and powerful hammer as its weapon. Its builder is Jascha Little of Austin, Texas.

SS: Let's go to Mark Beiro.
MB: Introducing in the red square: There is only one rule in his life when it comes to Battlebots: Attack, attack, attack! Here is DIESECTOR! And in the blue square: His form of Jury Duty is taking out each and every single one of his opponents. Introducing THE JUDGE!

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! The Judge going straight after Diesector and is letting Diesector take several blows here in this first bout. Oh take a look now as The Judge has Diesector and is taking him into the Screws!

BD: That was such a powerful hit that The Judge appears to be on his side now, Sean.

SS: The Judge is taking some serious blows from the Pulverizor and Diesector is also taking hazard damage. What a move by Diesector as The Judge has lost part of his armor and is pinned under the Spike Strip, the Screws and the Pulverizor so this one must be over, Bil.

BR: 10.........9.............8..........7...........6..........5..........4...........
3.........2..........1.......stop the match!

SS: Here's Mark Beiro with the final results.
MB: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 25 seconds. The winner, by a knockout...... in the red square, DIESECTOR!

SS: Diesector takes out The Judge to move on to round 2. Bil, tell us about our next pair.

BD: Dooall is the creation of Scott LaValley and features a pneumatic spike. Scot comes from San Rafael, California. Dreadnaught has a wedge on the back and a saw at the front and was built by Christian Carlberg of Santa Monica, California.

SS: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dooall on the attack now but can't seem to get Dreadnaught into the Spike Strip. Both of these robots are going to have their work cut out for them as both robots can run upside down even if flipped.

BD: Dooall looks to be stuck in the corner with the Pulverizor, Sean.

SS: That's not good and he's also taking shots from the Pulverizor as his referee is counting him out now. This one is over and Dreadnaught is going through. Well two matches are gone but we have one left and Bil's going to tell us more about it.

BD: Tony Buchignani's Hazard has a lethal spinning bar and a front wedge. Tony comes from Los Angeles, California. Alpha Raptor has an actuated lifting arm as its choice for a weapon and was built by Chuck Pitzer of Phoenix, Arizona.

SS: As always, thanks, Bil now it's time for the bout so the box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! it's Hazard vs Alpha Raptor and right now, both robots having a hard time getting underneath each other. Look at Hazard now as he takes Alpha Raptor to the Pulverizor and both robots are now without their primary weapons, Bil.

BD: Losing the weapon for Hazard isn't as bad since he has his wedge but doesn't have the self-righting mechanism if he's flipped over, which I don't think should be a problem, Sean. However, now that Alpha Raptor doesn't have his weapon, he's a pretty easy target for Hazard and we're seeing that here in this bout now. That's it and I think it's pretty clear who is going through, Sean.

SS: I agree, Bil and here's Mark Beiro with the decision.
MB: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 30 to 5 decision for.... the red corner, HAZARD!

SS: What a night of robotic combat. Bil,  tell us about the bouts again.

BD: Diesector advances after putting The Judge out of the competition. Dreadnaught told Dooall there was nothing he could do to get himself out of the corner and in our last bout, Hazard made Alpha Raptor extinct.

SS: Well for Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury saying goodbye.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer reminding you that there's still more to come in this Battlebots season. Goodnight.

Season 3, Episode 3

"We've got a huge plate of destruction with a side of carnage as Dr. Inferno Jr. wants to perform robotic surgery on Biohazard," began Sean.

 

"Newcomer Traverse takes on the veteran Killerhurtz," added Bil.
"Finally, Surgeon General battles Techno Destructo. Welcome to another evening of robot combat I'm Sean Salisbury. My partner next to me loves robotic combat also and he's Bil Dwyer," continued Sean.

"We've got some great matches tonight so let's get right to them. Biohazard has an actuated lifting arm and anti-wedge fenders. His builder is Carlo Bertoccini of Belmont, California. Dr. Inferno Jr. is Jason Bardis' creation and has wedge skirts and two arms with weapons on them. Jason comes from Santa Barbra, California," explained Bil.


"Thanks, Bil, now let's hear from Mark Beiro," replied Sean.
MB: Introducing in the red square: You may want to call in sick because this doctor has a prescription of defeat for you. It's DR INFERNO JR! And in the blue square: He's a danger to everyone including you. Run away while you still can or face the wrath of BIOHAZARD!

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the red square referee.

"Ready!" agreed Jason.

"Dr. Inferno Jr. is ready!" repeated the red ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the blue square referee

"I'm ready!" confirmed Carlo.

"BioHzard is ready!" repeated the blue ref.


"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dr Inferno Jr. with repeated slams into the Screws on Biohazard. Oh take a look at the wedge skirt on the Battlebox floor!" shouted Sean.

"Bio must've taken some serious blows to lose a wedge skirt," noted Bil.
"Dr. Inferno Jr. dominating this fight but taking some damage from the hazards on the floor. Time's running out for Biohazard and it's pretty clear that Dr. Inferno Jr. is going through to the next round, Bil. The decision is in so let's go to Mark Beiro," replied Sean.

"The 3 Judges at arena side have turned in a 36 to 8 decision for....... the red square, DR INFERNO JR!" confirmed Mark.

"Well as we thought, Dr Inferno Jr. is moving on. Our next bout is upon us and Bil's gonna tell you more," assured Sean.

"Traverse is a newcomer with a flipping arm. His builder is Peter Abrahamson of Burbank, California. Jon Reid's Killerhurtz has a pneumatic axe as its weapon. Jon Reid comes from Oxford, England," explained Bil.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Traverse, the newcomer to Battlebots, really showing Killerhurtz, who now appears to be on his side, Bil," noted Sean.

"If he can't get back over, that's it for him, Sean. Looks like Traverse wants to help out a bit, though," stated Bil.

"Traverse has lost his flipper, Bil. How much will that hurt him later?" asked Sean.

"It's hurtin' him right now, Sean. It's keeping his wheels off the ground and I think this one's over," concluded Bil

"10! 9! 8! 7! 6! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1! stop the match!" shouted the red ref.
SS: Killerhurtz takes another spot in round 2. Who are the last pair for tonight?

"Surgeon General returns after his defeat from Hexidecimator in Season 4 and has his large spinning blade as a weapon. His builder is Korey Kline of Miami, Florida. Techno Destructo has a flipping arm as its weapon of choice. Its builder is Sean Irvin of Melbourne, Florida," read Bil.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Techno Destructo delivering early punishment on Surgeon General. Oh, look at Surgeon General on the Screws!" exclaimed Sean.

"He's stuck, Sean. His referee is now counting him out now so this belongs to Techno Destructo. That's it. What a quick fight!" reacted Bil.

"Let's hear the final results with Mark Beiro," requested Sean.
"Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 55 seconds. The winner by a knockout.... in the blue corner, TECHNO DESTRUCTO!" announced Mark.

"Another 3 bouts decided, Bil. Wrap it up for us," said Sean.
"Dr. Inferno Jr. decimated Biohazard to advance. Traverse got over-confident and lost his flipping arm to become disabled by Killerhurtz. In our last bout, it took only two flips to put the Surgeon General out of the tournament," recapped Bil.


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

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. We'll be back next time to continue the quest for a Battlebots champ. Goodnight," finished Bil.

Season 3, Episode 2

"Tonight on Battlebots, Semi-Finalist Mechanized Bird from last season battles rookie The Devil," began Bil.

 

"Then newcomer Ronin MK II takes on El Diablo," added Sean.

"Finally, Deadblow battles the returning robot Grendel," finished Bil.

"Hello and welcome to Battlebots I'm Sean Salisbury," stated Sean.

"I'm Bil Dwyer," replied Bil.

"Well our Battlebots tournament is underway and I'm impressed thus far, Bil," remarked Sean.

 

"Fighting robots never really gets old, Sean and here's our first fight. Mechanized Bird has a powerful crushing arm and front wedge. His builder is Ian Lewis from Bournemouth. The Devil has treads as well as a front wedge and rear plow. His builder is Michael J. Kawecki of Longmont, Colorado," agreed Bil.

 

"Let's go down to Mark Beiro who has the info," requested Sean.

"Introducing in the red square: It's not a bird, it's not a plane but it's the robot in the red corner MECHANIZED BIRD! And in the blue square: He's thirsty for robot blood and utter dominance and he's also THE DEVIL!" announced Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! The Devil getting underneath the much lower to the ground Mechanized Bird but can't push him around and Mechanized Bird now showing his weapons and letting his opponent take all the brutality. Take a look at that. The Pulverizor fell off, probably in fear of Mechanized Bird, who is pretty much dominating this fight," commented Sean.

 

"The Devil practically lifeless at this point, at least while he's on top of Mechanized Bird's front scoop. Not much he can do from there but he's still alive when he's on the arena floor. Such a sturdy bot that one is," noted Bil.

 

"You kinda need to be sturdy to absorb many of the blows dealt by Mechanized Bird as we end this bout. I think it's pretty clear who's won this but let's hear from Mark Beiro," said Sean.

 

"The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 26 to 7 decision for........the red square, MECHANIZED BIRD!" confirmed Mark.

 

"No surprise there, Bil. What do you have for our next bout?" asked Sean.

"El Diablo has a spinning barrel of death and a rear spiked wedge. His builder is Zach Bieber from Monrovia, California. His opponent is Ronin MKII who has a front plow and saw. His builder is Peter Abrahamson of Burbank, California," answered Bil.

 

"Let's get the info from Mark Beiro," continued Sean.

"Introducing in the red square: He is responsible for all the past bot disappearances and is proud of it! It's EL DIABLO! And in the blue square: Looking more like a table saw gone wrong is a robot hungry for crumpled pneumatics. Introducing RONIN MKII!" shouted Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the red square referee.

"Ready!" agreed Zach.

"El Diablo is ready!" repeated the red ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the blue square referee

"I'm ready!" confirmed Peter.

"Ronkin MKII is ready is ready!" echoed the blue ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! It's El Diablo against Ronin MKII and right now both robots having some difficulty turning the match in their favor. Take a look at that. Ronin's little plow is on the arena floor and El Diablo is taking full advantage and delivering Ronin MKII around the box," exclaimed Sean.

 

"Little bit of a stand-off there but looks like Ronin MKII is going to come out on top as he now is underneath El Diablo and taking him to the Screws and El Diablo appears to be stuck," noted Bil.

 

"This looks like the end for El Diablo here as he's unable to move and it is now over. Ronin MKII taking the win right before the bell and here's Mark Beiro with the final results," added Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen: The time: 2 minutes, 55 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the blue corner, RONIN MKII!" declared Mark.

 

"There you have it. Ronin MKII moving to round 2. How about that last bout for us, Bil?" replied Sean.

 

"You got it. Grendel was built by Daniel Rupert from San Diego, California. Deadblow is Grant Imahara's creation and features a CO2 powered flipper. Grant comes from Oakland, California," explained Bil.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Deadblow with early punishment on Grendel, who is now on his back on the Screws. Grendel back over now but is taking more punishment as he is thrown into the corner with the Pulverizor but one of his drive wheels appears to be disabled, Bil," told Sean.

 

"That's the worst time you want to have half of your drive train fail, especially if you're large like Grendel," recalled Bil.

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

"Deadblow going through with little to deal with back in the Pits. The final results are in," stated Sean.

"Ladies and gentlemen: The time: 1 minute. The winner, by a knockout, in the blue square, DEADBLOW! called Mark.

 

"What a night of fights. Bil, wrap it up for us," remarked Sean.

"Mechanized Bird trashed his opponent by slamming him all over the box. Ronin MKII took a come-from-behind victory against El Diablo in an amazing knockout. Finally, Deadblow, with 2 flicks of his flipper, put Grendel out of commission," replied Bil.

  

"For Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar and Bil Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," added Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Next week, more robot domination to quench your thirst for violence. Goodnight," finished Bil.

Season 3, Episode 1

"Strap yourselves in because it's going to be a bumpy ride as Dantomkia has his sights on Double Chaos," began Sean.

 

"Then In a rematch from Season 4, Bad Attitude fights Complete Control," added Bil.

 

"Finally, Son of Whyachi throws down with Minion. Hello and welcome to this new season of Battlebots, I'm Sean Salisbury and with me is my faithful partner Bil Dwyer," continued Sean.

 

"Thanks, Sean. Good to have you back this season," replied Bil.

"My pleasure, Bil. Now tell us about our new arena," requested Sean.

"It's going to feel like Season 2 all over again, Sean. We have the return of the Screws and a modified Spike Strip that's sure to leave many robots hanging. The only thing we won't have much of anymore is a robot sticking out of the arena wall like we had so much of last season. Plus we have some old bot favorites returning and some newcomers so here's our first fight. Returning champ Dantomkia has a powerful flipping arm and  was built by Mike Lamberts of Britain. Double Chaos also has a powerful flipper and was built by George Francis of Ipswich," explained Bil.

 

"Thanks Bil now let's get to the introductions with Mark Beiro," added Sean.

"Introducing in the red square: He's black, he's back and he's got plenty of whack. He's DOUBLE CHAOS! And in the blue square: It's got a long pointy body, a strong flipping arm and it's also the returning champ DANTOMKIA!" announced Mark.

 

"Red driver, are you ready?" asked the red square referee.

"Ready!" agreed George.

"Double Chaos is ready!" repeated the red ref.

"Blue driver, are you ready?" asked the blue square referee

"I'm ready!" confirmed Michael.

"Dantomkia is ready!" echoed the blue ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Double Chaos on the aggressive here against the champ Dantomkia and it looks like Dantomkia is stuck on those Screws there, Bil," commented Sean.

 

"I'm right with you on that, Sean. Dantomkia must get down and he does. It's pretty amazing that Double Chaos can get underneath Dantomkia like he just did there and Dantomkia is now on the Spike Strip near the Pulverizor," agreed Bil.

 

"Take a look at that, Dantomkia gets away but the Pulverizor lands a couple of blows. Not what I expected from the returning champ at all, Bil," noted Sean.

 

"Double Chaos with another flip and Dantomkia isn't moving. He can right himself but it looks like he's pinned under the Spike Strip," continued Sean.

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

"An amazing upset by Double Chaos. Here comes the final decision," remarked Sean.

"Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 2 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the red square, DOUBLE CHAOS!" confirmed Mark.

 

"What a turn-up for the books as our former champ goes down," reacted Sean.

"Double Chaos also lost in another tournament in the opening round so he probably knows how Dantomkia feels," added Bil.

 

"What do you have for our next pair?" asked Sean.

"Bad Attitude is Thomas Petruccelli's creation and features a nasty wedge front. Thomas is from San Jose, California. Derek Young's Complete Control is a grabber bot with front forks and that grabber. Derek Young comes from Burnaby, British Columbia," explained Bil.

 

"Mark Beiro has all the statistics," stated Sean.

"Introducing in the red square: Getting hit by his front wedge is like running over a bed of nails. It's BAD ATTITUDE! And in the blue square: Determined for domination over all of his opponents is the robot in the blue corner, COMPLETE CONTROL!" declared Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Complete Control getting his weapon to work but missing on Bad Attitude. Good driving by Thomas Petruccelli not allowing Complete Control to get a hold of him," began Sean.

 

"Complete Control has Bad Attitude now and tossed him over!" shouted Bil.

"This is exactly what Complete Control has in store and Bad Attitude is now in big trouble with that inverted wedge," continued Sean.

"Luckily, Thomas made it so Bad Attitude can run the same way up as when he's right-side up but right now Complete Control is taking him to the Pulverizor and Bad Attitude is now on his side," recalled Bil.

 

"Bad Attitude is just short of the Pulverizor, which could right him and I think Complete Control is trying to help Bad Attitude out a bit but it's not working and Bad Attitude's countdown has begun," added Sean.

 

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

"Domination by Complete Control. Lets hear from Mark Beiro," summarized Sean.

"Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute 15 seconds. The winner, by a knockout in the blue corner, COMPLETE CONTROL!" shouted Mark.

 

"Complete Control dominates and moves on. Bil how about our last bout?" replied Sean.

 

"You got it. Son of Whyachi features an overhead blade and was built by Terry Ewert of Dorchester, Wisconsin. Minion has a front wedge and rear saw and was built by Christian Carlberg of North Hollywood, California," answered Bil.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! It's Minion vs Son of Whyachi and right now both robots are in a stalemate and can't get underneath each other. Take a look at that, one of Minion's side plates is open but he gets underneath Son of Whyachi and takes him to the Pulverizor," exclaimed Sean.

 

"It looks like they're stuck together but Minion gives Son of Whyachi a taste of the Killsaws and Whyachi is free," noted Bil.

 

"Oh look at the damage done to Minion as his self-righting mechanism flies off and the other side panel is torn open by Son of Whyachi. Minion's on his back but this one's over as Minion just lost his self-righting mechanism on the Battlebox floor," reacted Sean.

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

"Another knockout for the night and  Son of Whyachi moves on. Let's make it official with Mark Beiro," concluded Sean.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute 35 seconds. The winner by a knockout, in the blue square, SON OF WHYACHI!" echoed Mark.

 

"What a way to bring in the new tournament, Bil. Can you give us the replays?" requested Sean.

 

"Double Chaos tossed Dantomkia out of the competition in just over 2 minutes. Complete Control took Bad Attitude all over the arena, then delivered the final blow to put Bad Attitude on his side. Finally, Son of Whyachi delivered a death blow on Minion to advance," recapped Bil.

 

"Well for Heidi Mark, Randy and Jason Sklar, and Bill Nye, I'm Sean Salisbury," reminded Sean.

 

"I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as this new Battlebots tournament unravels more destruction next time. Goodnight," finished Bil.
