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.
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.
Episode 11
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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: Ready!
RR: 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.
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.
Episode 3
SS: We've got a huge plate of destruction with a side of carnage as Dr. Inferno Jr. wants to perform robotic surgery on Biohazard.
BD: Newcomer Traverse takes on the veteran Killerhurtz.
SS: 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.

BD: 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.
SS: Thanks, Bil, now let's hear from Mark Beiro.
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!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?
JASON: I'm ready!
RR: Dr. Inferno Jr. is ready!
BR: Blue driver, are you ready?
CARLO: Ready!
BR: Biohazard is ready!
SS: 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!

BD: Bio must've taken some serious blows to lose a wedge skirt.

SS: 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.

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

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

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

BD: If he can't get back over, that's it for him, Sean. Looks like traverse wants to help out a bit, though.

SS: Traverse has lost his flipper, Bil. How much will that hurt him later?

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

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

BD: 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.

SS: 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!

BD: 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!

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

SS: Another 3 bouts decided, Bil. Wrap it up for us.
BD: 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.

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

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

Episode 2

BD: Tonight on Battlebots, Semi-Finalist Mechanized Bird from last season battles rookie The Devil.

SS: Then newcomer Ronin MK II takes on El Diablo.

BD: Finally, Deadblow battles the returning robot Grendel.

SS: Hello and welcome to Battlebots I'm Sean Salisbury.

BD: I'm Bil Dwyer.

SS: Well our Battlebots tournament is underway and I'm impressed thus far, Bil.

BD: 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.

SS: Let's go down to Mark Beiro who has the info.

MB: 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!

SS: 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.

BD: 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.

 

SS: 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.

 

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

SS: No surprise there, Bil. What do you have for our next bout?

BD: 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.

SS: Let's get the info from Mark Beiro.

MB: 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!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?

ZACH: I'm ready!

RR: El Diablo is ready!

BR: Blue driver, are you ready?

PETER: Ready!

BR: Ronin MKII is ready!

SS: 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.

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

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

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

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

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

BR:10..........9............8............7............6............5.............4

...............3..............2.............1..............stop the match!

SS: Deadblow going through with little to deal with back in the Pits. The final results are in.

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

SS: What a night of fights. Bil, wrap it up for us.

BD: 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.

  

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

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

Episode 1

SS: Strap yourselves in because it's going to be a bumpy ride as Dantomkia has his sights on Double Chaos.

BD: Then In a rematch from Season 4, Bad Attitude fights Complete Control.

SS: 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.

BD: Thanks, Sean. Good to have you back this season.

SS: My pleasure, Bil. Now tell us about our new arena.

BD: 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.

SS: Thanks Bil now let's get to the introductions with Mark Beiro.

MB: 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!

RR: Red driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: I'm ready!

RR: Double Chaos is ready!

BR: Blue driver, are you ready?

MIKE: Ready!

BR: Dantomkia is ready!

SS: 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.

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

BD: 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.

BR: 10............9.............8............7...........6............5............4

............3...........2............1...........stop the match!

SS: An amazing upset by Double Chaos. Here comes the final decision.

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

SS: What a turn-up for the books as our former champ goes down.

BD: Double Chaos also lost in another tournament in the opening round so he probably knows how Dantomkia feels.

SS: What do you have for our next pair?

BD: 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.

SS: Mark Beiro has all the statistics.

MB: 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!

SS: 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.

BD: Complete Control has Bad Attitude now and tossed him over!

SS: This is exactly what Complete Control has in store and Bad Attitude is now in big trouble with that inverted wedge.

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

RR: 10..........9............8...........7............6............5.............4

.............3.............2...........1.............stop the match!

SS: Domination by Complete Control. Lets hear from Mark Beiro.

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

SS: Complete Control dominates and moves on. Bil how about our last bout?

BD: 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.

SS: 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.

BD: It looks like they're stuck together but Minion gives Son of Whyachi a taste of the Killsaws and Whyachi is free.

SS: 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.

BR: 10...........9............8..........7............6...........5...........4

..........3...........2.............1............stop the match!

SS: Another knockout for the night and  Son of Whyachi moves on. Let's make it official with Mark Beiro.

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

Episode 21

BIL: Tonight's episode will reveal the Battlebots champion but 2 battles are left with Mechanized Bird facing Ankle Biter.

TIM: The winner of the first bout takes on Dantomkia for the championship title. Welcome to Battlebots and I'm Tim Green with my partner thirsty for robot carnage, Bil Dwyer.

BIL: This is what we've been waiting for. Just two bouts left and we'll have the Giant Nut presentation. Here's our first bout. Mechanized Bird has a front scoop and crushing beak. His builder is Ian Lewis from Bournemouth. Ankle Biter has a front wedge with an embedded saw. Jon McKenzie made this robot and comes from Ukiah, California.

TIM: Mark Beiro has more.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: He's hungry for a big bowl of severed robot parts. It's MECHANIZED BIRD! And in the blue square: His to-do list is small because there's only one thing he needs done: defeat you from the tournament! Introducing ANLKE BITER!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

IAN: I am ready!

RED REF: Mechanized Bird is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JON: Ready!

BLUE REF: Ankle Biter is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechanized Bird gets right underneath the wedge of Ankle Biter and uses his beak but it looks like the beak is ineffective, Bil.

BIL: If that keeps up, others might end up copying Ankle Biter's armor design, Tim.  Now Ankle Biter is in a pretty bad spot as Mechanized Bird got him right between the tire and the body.

TIM: Ankle Biter taking a beating from the Pulverizor and Mechanized Bird is struggling to get his wings down and does. Ankle Biter, really having nothing to use to get underneath Mechanized Bird's low wedge design. Mechanized Bird has Ankle Biter in the beak again and brings him again to the Pulverizor, which has been torn off by the first hit! Mechanized Bird, still with Ankle Biter, slams him into the wall and Ankle Biter is on his side!

BIL: What a shame for Ankle Biter. He comes in tournament after tournament only to end up where he doesn't want.

BLUE REF: 10.........9..............8.............7............6.............5.............4

.............3.............2..............1..............stop the match!

TIM: Mechanized Bird meets Dantomkia in the finals. Let's get the final decision.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 17 seconds. The winner, by a knockout..........in the red square, MECHANIZED BIRD!

TIM: So Mechanized Bird with the KO over Ankle Biter. How does this championship bout look, Bil?

BIL: Dantomkia has a lethal flipping arm and was built by Mike Lamberts from Britain. Ian Lewis made Mechanized Bird with a crushing beak and front wedge. Ian is from Bournemouth.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's championship robot fightin' time! Dantomkia coming right out and tossing Mechanized Bird! Dantomkia underneath Mechanized Bird and taking him to the Pulverizor, which has snapped off again!

BIL: We need a new Pulverizor now.

TIM: Mechanized Bird finding an opening and uses his weapon, slamming Dantomkia into the wall. Mechanized Bird takes a shot from the Killsaws, then is tossed once more and Dantomkia is on his back end!

BIL: That'd be horrible for Dantomkia to go out now but he's on his wheels now.

TIM: Dantomkia, saving himself from losing early and tossing Mechanized Bird once more and this bout is over.

BIL: What a Battlebots final!

TIM: Mark Beiro has the champion.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23 to 8 decision to the winner..........and Battlebots champion........the blue square, DANOTMKIA! Here is the giant nut award to the Battlebots winner.........Dantomkia and Mike Lamberts! *Mike comes on and takes his prize, holding it up to the crowd, then leaves*

TIM: What a season it has been. Bil, give us the replays of this great end to this Battlebots tournament.

BIL: Mechanized Bird tore through Ankle Biter but didn't have the muster to survive against our champion Dantomkia.

TIM: We hope you've enjoyed this Battlebots season as much as we have. For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. We look forward to the next tournament of Battlebots. See ya then.

Episode 20

TIM: The semi finals continue with 6 more robots thirsty for annihilation and Mechanized Bird is hunting ShoveMaster2000.

BIL: Ankle Biter is lookin' to cut-up Tazbot.

TIM: Finally, Dantomkia looks to over-throw Stinger. This is Battlebots and I'm Tim Green along with my partner Bil Dwyer.

BIL: We've seen some nasty robots in this tournament, Tim. Since a lot of them are so nasty that they're still in this tournament, I'm sure they'll continue their reign like with our first fight. ShoveMaster2000 has a front scoop and is invertible. His builder is Ramiro Mallari from San Francisco. Mechanized Bird is created by Ian Lewis and features a crushing beak.  Ian comes from Bournemouth.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: What's that burning? It must be the motors burning from the work of MECHANIZED BIRD! And in the blue square: He won't give you the inside story but he will show you the exit door. Introducing SHOVEMASTER2000!

RED REF: Red driver are you ready?

IAN: I am ready!

RED REF: Mechanized Bird is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

RAMIRO: Ready!

BLUE REF: ShoveMaster2000 is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechanized Bird using his beak to get underneath ShoveMaster2000's scoop design but ShoveMaster escapes.

BIL: The weapon of Mechanized Bird......so powerful.

TIM: Mechanized Bird, controlling this fight and taking ShoveMaster to the Pulverizor! ShoveMaster, unscathed but hazard points awarded to Mechanized Bird. Mechanized Bird underneath ShoveMaster again and taking him the Killsaws and the Spike Strip.  ShoveMaster, unable to use his scoop to get underneath Mechanized Bird at all. Mechanized Bird delivering ShoveMaster to the Pulverizor and Mechanized Bird himself takes a shot. Both bots taking a hit from the Killsaws and it looks to me like Mechanized Bird's wings are stuck outward.

BIL: That hit from the Pulverizor must've jammed the mechanism that allows the wings to open and close.

TIM: Both robots still mobile so we await the judges decision with Mark Beiro.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 30 to 6 decision for......... the red square, MECHANIZED BIRD!

TIM: Mechanized Bird through to the second half of our semi-finals. Bil. How about our next bout?

BIL: Jon McKenzie's Ankle Biter has a front wedge with an embedded saw. Jon McKenzie comes from Ukiah, California. Tazbot is the creation of Donald Hutson and has a  rear wedge and a 360 degree turret. Don comes from San Diego, California.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose between both bots! Tazbot underneath Ankle Biter but Ankle Biter able to slip away. Ankle Biter now underneath Tazbot and driving him to the Pulverizor! Tazbot taking damage from the Killsaws then gives Ankle Biter a taste of the Spikes! Ankle Biter running underneath Tazbot, then flipping him near the Pulverizor.

BIL: This is startin' to remind me of Vlad the Impaler vs Biohazard, Tim.

TIM: Maybe that's what these two drivers had in mind, Bil. Tazbot must get away from the Pulverizor to avoid damage and he does. Ankle Biter bringing Tazbot to the Pulverizor again and Tazbot looks to be stuck on the Spike Strip but is free, then gives Ankle Biter a second dose of the Spike Strip. Ankle Biter gets Tazbot stuck on the spikes again in the final seconds of this bout.

BIL: This is a close bout, let's see what the judges say.

MARK: The 3 judges at  arena side have turned in a 26 to 15 decision for...........the blue corner, ANKLE BITER!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dantomkia tossing Stinger into the air but Stinger can run all ways up. Stinger using his weapon as he is tossed once again into the air. Dantomkia, delivering Stinger to the Pulverizor. Stinger whacking Dantomkia and tossed again. Stinger with a big shot on Dantomkia. Dantomkia making Stinger airborne but is flipped over himself!

BIL: Dantomkia's really struggling to get back over, Tim and I can't blame him. He's made it this far and doesn't want to lose. Neither does Stinger, though.

TIM: Dantomkia, on his back end and taking numerous shots from the Pulverizor. His referee is trying to count Dantomkia out but this bout is over.

BIL: Really tough fight to call, both bots were aggressive.

TIM: The judges decision is in.

TIM: Tazbot's little shove has allowed the Pulverizor to free The Judge!

BIL: Tazbot's arm isn't too effective against the low Judge.

TIM: Though Tazbot is using his front wedge to again get underneath The Judge and bring him back to the Pulverizor, which has now snapped off!

BIL: The Pulverizor committed suicide.

TIM: Yes and Tazbot still underneath The Judge and putting him on his side! The Judge looks to be out, Bil.

TIM: Atomic Wedgie taking another brutal slam into the wall and another few hits from the Pulverizor. Oh Mechanized Bird takes a few shots as well! Atomic Wedgie looks to be stuck in the corner with the Pulverizor but it doesn't appear that the Pulverizor is hitting him Bil.

BIL: Talk about an awkward position, Tim. New Cruelty isn't completely on his side here and now he's sliding off the arena wall!

TIM: Now he's on his reverse side and doesn't have any protection against Ankle Biter, who continues to slam him into the wall and I think this time it's over.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Deadblow with an early flip. Diesector now inverted but unaffected by the flip.

BIL: I'm not so sure, Tim. I think it helped Diesector as now one of his jaws is flat with the Battlebox floor so he can now get underneath Deadblow.

TIM: Deadblow with the flip but unable to bring Diesector right-side up. Diesector flipping Deadblow onto his back but Deadblow rights himself. Deadblow with another attempt at flipping but misses and his flipper appears to be stuck upright. Diesector, taking advantage and slamming Deadblow into the wall.

..........3..........2..........1............stop the match!

TIM: Diesector makes Deadblow his first victim in round 3. Let's hear from Mark Beiro.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. More round 3 bouts next time. See ya.

Episode 15

BIL: Ian Lewis' two machines are going for a brawl and one of them will be the sacrifice to the Battlebox.

TIM: New Cruelty puts his 4 wheels and near-indestructible frame to the test against the veteran Dooall.

BIL: Ankle Biter fights Ginsu to see what the better number of blades is.

TIM: Welcome to Battlebots, I'm Tim Green and we're winding down the second round bouts.

BIL: It's been a spectacular road so far and there's plenty more where that came from like with our first fight. Mechanized Bird was built by Ian Lewis and features a crushing arm and front scoop. Ian Lewis comes from Bournemouth. Warhead is also Ian Lewis' creation but has wings for self-righting and a front spinning dome.

TIM: Mark Beiro has the rest of the info.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: The day of doom and gloom is upon you if you face WARHEAD! And in the blue square: It's a bird, it's a plane, and it's a vicious robot named MECHANIZED BIRD!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

IAN: Ready!

RED REF: Warhead is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

VINNIE: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Mechanized Bird is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechanized Bird using his crushing beak on Warhead and takes him to the Pulverizor early. Warhead loses his main weapon on the arena floor.

BIL: Just goes to show the power of the Pulverizor.

TIM: Mechanized Bird releases Warhead temporarily as you can only hold a robot for 30 seconds. Mechanized Bird, controlling this fight and delivering Warhead to the Pulverizor and taking not only pieces of Warhead but the Pulverizor itself!

BIL: This isn't like Warhead at all. Normally he's tearing up his opponent so the driver of Mechanized Bird must be the better one or the lack of Warhead's weapon is leaving Mechanized Bird with an easy fight. The Pulverizor there didn't come down. Must be a malfunction or something.

TIM: A temporary break for Warhead. Mechanized Bird now leaving Warhead at the Spike Strip but Warhead breaks free. Mechanized Bird gets in a final delivery of Warhead to the Spike Strip and this one's over.

BIL: No knockout but it's pretty clear Mechanized Bird is movin' on, Tim.

TIM: Who won well let's get the answer from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 20 to 14 decision for..........................the blue square, MECHANIZED BIRD!

TIM: Mechanized Bird ate Warhead alive, Bil.

BIL: Oh he did, Tim. There was barely anything left of Warhead after the fight. Speaking of fights, here's our next pair. Richard Stuplick brings New Cruelty with 4 wheels and a front plow. Richard comes from Wasaw, Wisconsin. Dooall is the creation of Scott LaValley and features a spring-loaded ramrod. Scott comes from San Rafael, California.

TIM: Mark Beiro's intros are here.

MARK: Introducing in the red square to my right: He doesn't want half, he doesn't want 3/4, he wants to DOOALL! And in the blue square: This robot wants a new kind of punishment. It's not a timeout, it's not annoying music, it's NEW CRUELTY!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! New Cruelty finding an opening in Dooall and bringing the robot to the Pulverizor. Dooall takes a shot from the Killsaws. Oh Dooall flipped over but that doesn't matter to Dooall. New Cruelty, pushing Dooall around the box and nearly leaving him on his side. Dooall appears to have lost one of the top covers on the Battlebox floor, Bil.

BIL: It's the cover that keeps his weapon from getting stuck underneath him, Tim. That'll probably count against him in the scoring.

TIM: Oh New Cruelty airborne and appears to be stuck on the Spikes!

BIL: He's also close to the Pulverizor, which looks to be caught up right now, Tim. That's it. Tough fight to call.

TIM: New Cruelty wins the bout 24 to 19. A narrow escape for the robot. Bil, what do you got on our last bout tonight?

BIL: Jon McKenzie's Ankle Biter has a classic wedge shape and a saw. Jon McKenzie comes from Ukiah, California. Trey Roski built Ginsu, who features several saw blades as wheels and weapons.

TIM: It's that time again with Mark Beiro.

MARK: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing in the red square: This two-wheeled menace will leave your feet sore in the morning. Introducing ANKLE BITER! And in the blue square: Armed with everything needed to make a house and to defeat you is GINSU!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Ankle Biter flipping Ginsu but Ginsu is unscathed. Both bots nose-to-nose but still upright. Oh Ginsu on his side and being delivered to the Pulverizor!

BIL: Ankle Biter proving himself in this tournament.

TIM: Mark Beiro has the final results.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute 10 seconds. The winner, by a knockout................in the red square, ANKLE BITER!

TIM: Ankle Biter leaves Ginsu for dead and moves to round 3. Bil, how about the replays?

BIL: You got it, Tim. Mechanized Bird tore up Warhead and fed him to the hungry arena hazards. New Cruelty escapes a near-knockout after landing on the Spike Strip and not being able to move. As you just saw, Ankle Biter decimates Ginsu to take a quick win.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Next week we finish round 2 and start round 3. Goodnight.

Episode 14

TIM: Battlebots brings you more destruction and chaos as Backlash hopes to tear up ShoveMaster2000.

BIL: Mechavore has destruction on his mind and he'll be fighting Question Mark to dish it out.

TIM: Finally, Atomic Wedgie faces off against The Master himself. Hello and welcome everyone, I'm Tim Green and next to me is my companion Bil Dwyer.

BIL: That's right, Tim. I think these bouts will feature utter domination from one of the bots. Here's a look at our first fight. Backlash houses his rear wedge and spinning blade of death. Jim Smentowski built him and is from Novato, California. ShoveMaster2000 is a two-wheeled bot with a front scoop. His builder is Ramiro Mallari from San Francisco, California.

TIM: Let's hear what Mark Beiro has to say.

MARK: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing, in the red square: His blade isn't just for looks, it's also for chewing up his opponents. Introducing BACKLASH! And in the blue square: You'll be surprised when he digs victory out from underneath you. It's SHOVEMASTER2000!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Backlash is slammed into the wall by ShoveMaster! Backlash, taking a ride under the Pulverizor! Backlash, trying to use his rear wedge, ineffectively against SM2000. ShoveMaster2000, using that effective scoop to push Backlash all around the box.

BIL: Backlash really doesn't have anything to fight back with, Tim. ShoveMaster is just pushing him around like a great robot bully.

TIM: Backlash, having some trouble near the Pulverizor, but narrowly escapes being hit.

BIL: Backlash held up pretty well against ShoveMaster but odds are that he isn't going to win this fight.

TIM: ShoveMaster, being pushed into the wall by Backlash and seems to have his scoop pushed upwards but the match is over though. Is there something we missed? Well we'll find out from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 19 to 18 decision for.............the blue corner, SHOVEMASTER2000!

BIL: I guess that damage was enough to give Backlash some points but it wasn't enough. Here's our next bout. Mechavore has his front disc for his weapon. His builder is Robert Marzinske of Tempe Arizona. Question Mark is the exact battle scared twin of Biohazard. Carlo Bertoccini built him and is from Belmont California.

TIM: Mark Beiro has the final thoughts.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: The answer to his problems isn't to sign a treaty, it's to fight until one robot dies. Please welcome QUESTION MARK! And in the blue square: When this robot is finished, he has vanquished the rest of the robot food chain. Its MECHAVORE!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on...

BIL: It's robot fightin' time!

TIM: You got it, my friend. Question Mark with the early slam into the wall on Mechavore. Question Mark, seems to be unable to get his lifting arm to work. Mechavore flipped over by Question Mark but is back over. Mechavore with a direct shot from the Pulverizor and his rear wedge is taken off.

BIL: Question Mark's left anti-wedge skirt seems to be pushed upwards and mangled, Tim.

TIM: That could mean trouble for Question Mark but with no wedge to help him, I don't see Mechavore getting underneath, Bil. Just a few seconds left and Question Mark with the Pulverizor shot on Mechavore, who lost the support for the wedge he used to have with him. Question Mark takes the win 23 to 18. Bil, What do you have for our last bout?

BIL: Atomic Wedgie has the front wedge and spinning tri-foils. His builder is Rupert Everhart from Columbia, Maryland. Mark Setrakian's The Master has a front horizontal disc and a rear wedge. Mark Setrakian comes from Los Angeles, California.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Atomic Wedgie delivers a blow on The Master by slamming him into the wall. The Master, not having any sort of control in this fight as he is taken to the Pulverizor and loses his rear wedge. Atomic Wedgie, driving The Master around the box, then takes a shot from the Killsaws himself. Atomic Wedgie gets slammed into the wall by The Master! The Master, taking more shots from the Pulverizors but seems to now be stuck with Atomic Wedgie, Bil.

BIL: They're going to have to separate them now, Tim. Nothing too serious. It's a constant occurrence in Battlebots.

TIM: Atomic Wedgie, pushing The Master into the Spikes and with the Pulverizor and The Master looks to be stuck there.

BIL: The blade of the Master is stuck on top of one of the Spikes in the Battlebox, Tim, plus his wheels are off the ground. Too bad the Pulverizor can't help him here. It's over and Atomic Wedgie moves to round 3. Bil, give us the highlights.

BIL: Backlash got pushed all around the box by the bout winner ShoveMaster2000. Question Mark gave Mechavore a taste of the arena hazards to take the judges decision victory and Atomic Wedgie gave The Master a lesson in losing.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Don't worry. We'll be back to quench your thirst for robot carnage next time. See ya then.

TIM: Finally X-orcist hopes to put the nightmare of Tentomushi 9.0 to sleep. Welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: This tournament is getting more and more impressive each night, Tim. Let's take a look at our first fight. Sliceratops has flipping tusks and a rear flywheel. James Davis is its builder. Minion MKII has 2 saw blades in the front and a rear plow. Christian Carlberg built him and is from North Hollywood California.

TIM: The intros are here with Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: His records are the same as your hopes of victory: history! It's SLICERATOPS! And in the blue square: Like an update from Microsoft Office, face the fury of MINION MKII!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin time! Sliceratops with the opening flip on Minion MKII. Minion MKII looking to back into Sliceratops to avoid being flipped is flipped anyway.

BIL: The weapon of Sliceratops is very effective right now. Minion MKII having no help at all.

TIM: Minion MKII is flipped again, then takes a hit from the Pulverizor. Sliceratops with another pop on Minion MKII! Oh, Sliceratops takes a shot from the Killsaws! Minion MKII, really defenseless against that front flipper of Sliceratops. Minion MKII is on his side up against the wall!

BIL: When you look at Minion MKII's design, you wouldn't think that this would be possible considering that the middle wheel sticks out but the wall helps him balance and I don't see him getting down from there, Tim.

TIM: I think you're right on that one, Bil. Minion MKII counted out in 1 minute, 45 seconds. Bil, how about our next bout?

BIL: You got it, pal. Vlad II has his lethal lifting forks for his weapon. His builder is Gauge Cauchois from Oakland California. Dreadnaught has a horizontal spinning disk and rear wedge. Christian Carlberg built him and is from North Hollywood California.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time!

BIL: The first big pop of the fight and Dreadnaught goes flyin'!

TIM: Both robots seem pretty evenly matched, Bil. Neither one of them can seem to get under the other.

BIL: Vlad II got a big slam there.

TIM: Dreadnaught seems to now be stuck in the Killsaw slots and Vlad is trying to help out.

BIL: I think this one's over, Tim.

TIM: You might be right about that, Bil. Wait a minute, Dreadnaught freed himself from the Killsaws!

BIL: Are you kiddin' me? Dreadnaught is stuck there again, Tim. This time I think it really is over.

TIM: Dreadnaught, trying to free himself again and miraculously does! Not much left in this match, though. Think Dreadnaught has a chance?

BIL: I'll give him a slight chance but I think that big slam early in the match is key.

TIM: Let's find out with the Judges Decision.

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

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! X-orcist with a brutal slam into the wall on Tentomushi!

BIL: I think we'll be seeing a lot of that in this bout, Tim. Tentomushi's been flipped over! Evil Fish Tank back in Season 2 wanted to do that but didn't quite get there.

TIM: Tentomushi, now under the Pulverizor and taking a beating while X-orcist puts himself on the Killsaws! X-orcist, controlling this entire bout and now has Tentomushi stuck in the Spike Strip. Tentomushi is now free from the wall!

BIL: Dantomkia with a very powerful flipper. I don't think Sabotage has much of a chance here.

TIM: Sabotage is tossed again and into another Pulverizor corner, where he again takes a shot from the Pulverizor. Sabotage, unable to get his flipping arm underneath Dantomkia, is now being pushed back into the first Pulverizor corner and is on his side. Oh Dantomkia takes a hit from the Pulverizor! Dantomkia with another flip but flips himself also!

BIL: Dantomkia, such a powerful weapon, even for himself!

TIM: Dantomkia tossing Sabotage again and seems to be over doing it, as you said, Bil. Uh-oh, I think Sabotage is stuck in the Spike Strip, Bil.

BIL: The back part of his wedge is on the outside of the arena, Tim. Dantomkia is just kinda playing with him now. Dantomkia moving to round 3!

TIM: Sabotage simply outmatched here. Bil, what's the scoop on our next bout?

BIL: El Diablo is at a huge disadvantage here, Tim. He doesn't have anything to get underneath Giant Cheese.

TIM: Giant Cheese with a miss on El Diablo. Another miss. Giant Cheese with another flip and I think that's it for El Diablo.

BIL: He's stuck on the Spike Strip. His treads are movin' but he can't get off.

TIM: Let's hear from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing in the red square: Losing to this robot isn't because of a technicality, it's because he beat you senseless. It's TECHNO DESTRUCTO! And in the blue square: This lunatic robot has had such a long list of victims, he's lost count. It's TAZBOT!

BIL: It looks like TD is stuck there, Tim, oh wait, he's down again.

TIM: TD has lost one of the roof arches on his head but is back in the match. Oh, Tazbot puts TD onto his side and TD is in major trouble!

BIL: He's up on the Spike Strip and in an unusual position and Tazbot's not letting him out.

TIM: Techno Destructo is free from the wall but his other arch has been removed and Tazbot is moving him to the Pulverizors!

BIL: Losing those arches is critical for TD, he can't flip himself over again. Tazbot's movin' on to round 2!

TIM: Tazbot dominates Techno Destructo to complete round 1. Bil, how about our next bout?

TIM: It's only getting harder as Mechadon takes a shot from the Killsaws. Mechadon with the flip on Ginsu but Ginsu's design keeps it moving. Oh both robots flipped!

BIL: Ginsu out second, he rolled over as Mechadon landed upside down so Ginsu has won it.

TIM: Ginsu wins against Mechadon. Bil, take us to our next fight.

Episode 9

TIM: New Cruelty is looking to pound T-Minus into submission.

BIL:  Dr Indestructible is back with a new name and a new grudge on Dooall.

TIM: Twin Paradox wants to show Ankle Biter who is better.

BIL: It's another night of 3 awesome fights, right here on Battlebots.

TIM: Hello everybody and welcome to another night of fights, I'm Tim Green and here to share the victories of some and the demise of others is Bil Dwyer.

BIL: You know it, Tim. It's another night of fights we've never seen before and I'm lookin' forward to it. Here's are first pair. New Cruelty has 4 wheels and a front plow. His builder is Richard Stuplich from Wasaw, Wisconsin. T-Minus is his opponent and features a flipping arm. Reason Bradley and Alexander Rose built him from Sausalito, California.

TIM: Mark Beiro is here with the introductions.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: People in the past have been cruel but this bot is about to enter a NEW CRUELTY! And in the blue square: Rockets blast off but nowhere near as high as the height that this robot throws you in. It's T-MINIUS!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

RICHARD: Ready!

RED REF: New Cruelty is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

REASON: We're ready!

BLUE REF: T-Minus is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! T-Minus tossing New Cruelty into the air. New Cruelty is now exposed to T-Minus who tosses him again but it looks like T-Minus has lost the critical part that aids in helping him self-right easily. T-Minus' flipper breaks off and lands on the Battlebox floor!

BIL: T-Minus is now very susceptible to New Cruelty. New Cruelty with a brutal slam there and T-Minus really doesn't have a lot going on now.

TIM: This is incredible, this was all T-Minus and now the tables have turned. New Cruelty taking T-Minus to the Pulverizor, which now looks to have snapped off but somehow is still in its corner. T-Minus gets a lucky break there.

BIL: What can you do if you're T-Minus now? You really don't have a way down and now that T-Minus is caught between the wheels of New Cruelty, they might need separating but I don't think there's enough time, Tim.

TIM: T-Minus taking some last minute beatings from another Pulverizor and it is over.

BIL: Tough fight to call, Tim. It was all T-Minus in the beginning but New Cruelty turned it around.

TIM: Let's see how the judges saw it.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23 to 19 decision.......for the red square, NEW CRUELTY!

TIM: New Cruelty takes the next spot in round 2. Bil, take us to our next fight.

BIL: Dooall is the creation of Scott LaValley and features a spring-loaded spike as it's weapon. Scott comes from San Rafael, California. Dr. Indestructible is now Dr Invincible. His weapon is a blade and a plow/wedge. Dr. Invincible was built by Robert Marzinske of Tempe Arizona.

TIM: Mark Beiro has the statistics.

MARK: Introducing in the red square to my right: They say that no super hero is invincible but this robot isn't a super hero it's DR INVINCIBLE! And in the blue square: When he salutes, he's actually saying goodbye as you are his next victim. It's DOOALL!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dooall with the first punch on Dr Invincible. Dooall again punishing Dr Invincible. Oh Dooall stuck in the spike strip but gets away! Dr Indestructible takes a shot from the Killsaws. Dr Indestructible loses his entire blade assembly on the Battlebox floor!

BIL: Dr Indestructible now can get underneath Dooall much more easily. That's a piece of Dooall on the floor there, it keeps his weapon in place.

TIM: Dr Indestructible, underneath Dooall, taking him around the box but Dooall escapes. Dooall takes shots from the Pulverizor.

BIL: That's it. Another close fight.

TIM: Let's see if the judges agree.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27 to 23 decision......for the blue corner, DOOALL!

TIM: Dooall takes out Dr Indestructible by a narrow win. Bil, how does the next pair look?

BIL: Ankle Biter has the classic wedge shape and a saw inside it. John Mackenzie built him. Twin Paradox has a blade as its weapon and runs invertible. His builders are Michael Neese and Skunk-Tek of Charlotte, North Carolina.

TIM: Mark Beiro has his facts to present.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: When he's done with the right side of your body, he'll be sure to attack the other side. It's TWIN PARADOX! And in the blue square: It's the wedge with the edge, the wheels with appeal, it's ANKLE BITER!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Ankle Biter with a near flip on Twin Paradox! Twin Paradox loses his blade! Ankle Biter flips Twin Paradox.

BIL: This is probably very advantageous for Twin Paradox because now he can get underneath Ankle Biter's wedge.

TIM: Ankle Biter is on his top and in big trouble. Oh, miraculously, Ankle Biter is righted by Twin Paradox! Twin Paradox has apparently lost his plow on the Battlebox floor! Twin Paradox has stopped moving.

BIL: It looks like none of his wheels are touching the ground so something underneath is raising his wheels off the ground.

RED REF: 10.............9.............8...........7............6..........5.........4

.........3...........2..........1.........stop the match!

TIM: Ankle Biter gets the KO just before the bell. Bil, wrap up tonight.

BIL: New Cruelty knocked out T-Minus after a quick turn-around from being flipped by T-Minus. Dooall punched the clearly destructible Dr Invincible and in our last match, Ankle Biter took the KO from Twin Paradox to advance.

TIM: For everybody on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Tune in next time as the Battlebots tournament continues. Goodnight.

Episode 8

BIL: Tonight's episode of Battlebots has carnage and destruction.

TIM: Atomic Wedgie battles newcomer Push 'N Shove.

BIL:  Mechanized Bird fought way back in Battlebots and now he returns to fight against Dual Punch.

TIM: Finally Robo-Ref puts his design to the test against Warhead. Hello everyone and welcome to Battlebots, I'm Tim Green.

BIL:  The adrenaline is always rushing through me whenever the night of robot fighting arrives. Let's get right to our first fight. Push 'N Shove features a diamond-edged axe and a front scoop. His builder is (don't know this) from (need builder first). Atomic Wedgie is the creation of Rupert Everhart and features a wedge and spinning tri-foils.

TIM: The intros are here.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: Its victims are turned into robot waste courtesy of ATOMIC WEDGIE! And in the blue square: When out of snowplows for winter, they don't pick this one because of it's long list of fatalities. It's PUSH 'N SHOVE!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Push 'n Shove with the scoop design already controlling this fight by slamming Atomic Wedgie into the wall.

BIL: That's a very effective scoop on Push 'n Shove, Tim. Atomic Wedgie can't seem to get under him. He's gotta go for the sides of Push 'n Shove.

TIM: Push 'n Shove, continuing to dominate Atomic Wedgie. Oh, Atomic Wedgie split open but is underneath Push 'n Shove! Push 'n Shove, now the victim of Atomic Wedgie, who appears to be looking for a way to tip him over, Bil.

BIL: Atomic Wedgie should be able to, Tim. Right now, though, it looks like he's stuck on the Spike Strip and in a dangerous area, too, right under the Pulverizors.

TIM: Push 'n Shove, taking a beating from the Pulverizors and I think he's being counted out. It......is.......over.

BIL: What a win for Atomic Wedgie. It hasn't done that since it's fight with Toro back in Season 2.

TIM: Let's get the official time.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 2 minutes, 30 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, ATOMIC WEDGIE!

TIM: Atomic Wedgie moves on. Bil, take us into our next fight.

BIL: Dual Punch was formally known as Dr. P.A.I.N. last season but still has his ramming spikes as his weapon. His builder is Chuck Pitzer from Phoenix, Arizona. His opponent is Mechanized Bird, who features a crushing beak and a wedge scoop. His builder is Vinny Blood from Dorset.

TIM: Now here are the introductions.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: I'm sure we've all had Hawaiian Punch, we've had Fruit Punch but you don't want any DUAL PUNCH! And in the blue square: This robot waits on its perch looking for its pray like a bald eagle. It's MECHANIZED BIRD!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Mechanized Bird gets Dual Punch with his beak and moves him to the Pulverizors! Dual Punch is free but MB grabs him again and takes him back to the Pulverizors and Dual Punch loses one of his ramming spikes on the Battlebox floor! Dual Punch, clearly at a disadvantage, takes damage from the Killsaws. MB, using that beak to grab DP and bring him again to the Pulverizors, as DP loses the other spike. This is clearly MB's fight.

BIL: There isn't much left of DP, Tim. I don't think DP has any chance at all, especially with him on his back end right now.

TIM: MB moves him back to the Pulverizors, which miraculously right MB but he's in a dangerous area and needs to get out but this match is over. It's time to see how the judges scored this bout.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 20 to 10 decision......for the blue square, MECHANIZED BIRD!

TIM: A score that doesn't surprise me, and Mechanized Bird moves on. Bil, how about our last bout?

BIL: Robo-Ref is armed with a wedge and rear wedge skirts. His builder is (don't know this) from (need builder first). Warhead is built by Vinny Blood and features a nasty spinning disc. Vinny comes from Dorset.

TIM: It's time for Mark Beiro's intros.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: Make a mistake in the sports complex, he gives you  a warning. Make a mistake in the Battlebox, he gives you a beating. He's ROBO-REF! And in the blue square: This robot beats all others senseless for a living. It's WARHEAD!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Robo-Ref and Warhead meet nose-to-nose. Both bots popped into the air by their impact. Oh, Warhead loses his front blade! Robo-Ref on his side and unable to move.

BIL: Kudos to Robo-Ref for hangin' in there. Warhead, showin' for the crowd.

TIM: Let's see the final results.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen: The time, 1 minute, 30 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the blue corner, WARHEAD!

TIM: An unbelievable night of fighting. Bil, give us the recap.

BIL: Atomic Wedgie knockout Push 'n Shove by leaving him there to be abused by the Pulverizor. Mechanized Bird left little of the carcass formally known as Dual Punch and moves on. Warhead leaves Robo-Ref out of his mind and out of the tournament.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. There will be plenty more destruction next time. See ya then.

Episode 7

TIM: Newcomer Chaos Gaze puts his blade against Mechavore.

BIL: Question Mark battles his own newcomer, Lifeless Scraps.

TIM: The Master returns with a new design and a new opponent, Flammin' Hot Bot. Hello and welcome to Battlebots, I'm Tim Green and here for some carnage is Bil Dwyer.

BIL: That's what we're both here, buddy. Tonight we have 3 new robots ready to test their designs and skills. Let's get right to our first fight. Chaos Gaze features a lethal spinning disc as its weapon. It can also self-right with a tiny arm right behind the disc. His builder is Dave Rose from England. Mechavore comes back with a two-wheel drive and a much bigger design. His builder is Robert Marzinske of Tempe Arizona.

TIM: Let's see what info Mark Beiro has.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: His rotary disc pulls you towards it like a compass at the North Pole. It's CHAOS GAZE! And in the blue square: Sharper than a kitchen knife, quicker than a speeding train, deadlier than his victims, introducing MECHAVORE!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose but no damage inflicted to either bot.

BIL: Oh man, Mechavore lost his rear wedge!

TIM: Mechavore, reduced to just a blade for a weapon is taking a beating from the Pulverizors!

BIL: Mechavore's falling apart, Tim, his blade's gone now.

TIM: There isn't much left of Mechavore to speak of and it looks to me like Chaos Gaze is losing not only the back cover but his means of self-righting. The righting mechanism appears to be jamming Chaos Gaze's weapon and some of his mobility. Oh the cover's gone!

BIL: Neither robot lookin' too good right now, Tim. Chaos Gaze at least has his weapon but now he can't self-right if flipped over.

TIM: Mechavore with the flip on Chaos Gaze and this one is over!

RED REF: 10.....9........8.........7.........6........5........4.......3.......2

.......1........stop the match!

TIM: Mechavore knocks out Chaos Gaze in 2 minutes, 50 seconds. Bil, how about our second match?

BIL: Lifeless Scraps features a saw on an arm and jaws at the front. His builder is (don't know this one) from (need builder first). Question Mark is Biohazard's battle-scarred twin. Carlo Bertoccini built him and is from Belmont, California.

TIM: Let's find out what Mark Beiro has to say.

MARK: This is a Battlebots elimination contest. Introducing, in the red square: His destruction is overwhelming, his moves are mystifying. Its LIFELESS SCRAPS! And in the blue square: Covered with the scars of defeat is the robot out for scars of victory. Here is QUESTION MARK!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Question Mark, struggling to get his arm up but it seems to be malfunctioning, Bil.

BIL: Lifeless Scraps is a hard bot to flip over, Tim. However, succeed and you've won. Lifeless Scraps is trying to get those jaws on QM but it's not working.

TIM: Question Mark gets his arm working and loses half of his armor on the Battlebox floor!

BIL: QM's got LS now. Where's gonna take him? Where ya gonna take him, QM?

TIM: To the Pulverizor!

BIL: That was about 10 pops from the Pulverizor. It looks like QM is trying to flip LS over but it's very difficult for any bot to do this. He's tryin, he's tryin, can he do it? YES HE CAN! Oh man, are you kiddin' me? He's done it.

TIM: Lifeless Scraps looking rather lifeless himself as he can't right himself and this one is over. Now let's get the official decision.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the time, 2 minutes, 0 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the  red square, QUESTION MARK!

TIM: So Question Mark takes the KO. Bil, tell us about our last match.

BIL: Mark Setrakian brings his robot back with a horizontal disc instead of a vertical one as well as a rear wedge. Mark Setrakian comes from Los Angeles, California.

TIM: Here's Mark Beiro with the intros.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: When it comes to maneuvering, he's faster, when it comes to destruction, he's THE MASTER! And in the blue square: He's so hot he gives ice a fever. It's FLAMMIN' HOT BOT!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both bots cautiously approaching and trying to find the other's weakness. Flammin' Hot Bot sends The Master flying against the wall! The Master is now free and ready to strike. Both bots, so far, managing to stay upright. Oh and both bots flipped!

BIL: The Master doesn't have any problems, he can just re-right himself but because Flammin Hot Bot landed on his side, his mobility is limited and I think The Master is taking advantage of that.

TIM: He is and FHB is taking a beating. FHB is now free and oh no, TM loses his rear wedge to the Killsaws!

BIL: That pretty much cancels out the usefulness of his saw, Tim. Oh man, FHB destroyed! That was nice!

TIM: FHB, down to just two wheels and his rear weapon is very vulnerable right now. The only thing Flammin' Hot Bot must avoid is getting flipped but he gets flipped and The Master has won it. The Master takes the win in a minute, fifteen. Bil, recap tonight.

BIL: Chaos Gaze is sent packing after being flipped, despite doing major damage to Mechavore. Question Mark flips the fearsome Lifeless Scraps out of the tournament. In our last match, The Master decimates Flammin' Hot Bot all over the Battlebox floor.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer, remindin' you to keep buildin' robots and we'll keep showing the fights. See ya.

Episode 6

TIM: Comedy Central's Battlebots presents more destruction in the Battlebox. The deadly Ziggo takes on X-orcist.

BIL: Backlash puts his spinning wheel of death against Ronin's saw.

TIM: ShoveMaster2000 hopes to move Vlad the Inhaler all around the Battlebox. Good evening and welcome to Battlebots everyone, I'm Tim Green and joining me in all the carnage is Bil Dwyer.

BIL: It's good to be here, Tim. It should be interesting to see how Ziggo does in this tournament, considering last season had him nearly destroyed by Tentomushi 9.0. I'm too amped up to focus on anything else so here's our first pair.  X-orcist features the scoop and axe. His builder is Marlon Pritchard from England.  Ziggo is Jonathan Ridder's creation and features a spinning doom with teeth on it. Ridder comes from San Jose, California.

TIM: Let's here the intros from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's found sometimes expelling ghosts out of family homes but most cases, he's expelling victory from his opponents. It's X-ORCIST! And in the blue square: A spinner with deadlier teeth than the cat he was named after. Introducing ZIGGO!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Both bots with a big hit and Ziggo's shell is sliced open while X-orcist strikes Ziggo's dome with his axe. Ziggo narrowly avoids the Killsaws. Oh and Ziggo's shell gets destroyed on the Battlebox floor and Ziggo himself appears to be knocked out, Bil.

BIL: That was an awesome fight, Tim.

BLUE REF: 10......9.......8.........7.......6.......5.......4.......3......2

.......1.......stop the match!

TIM: Ziggo KO'd in 1 minute, 30 seconds. Bil, take us to our second bout.

BIL: Backlash brings his spinning wheel of death back to the Battlebox. Jim Smentowski built him and is from Novato, California. Ronin has a rear wedge and saw as weapons. Peter Abrahamson built him and is from Burbank, California.

TIM: It's time for the intros.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: He won the Lightweight Division back in Season 1, now he wants another. It's BACKLASH! And in the blue square: You saw the movie, now witness the power of the robot. Here is RONIN!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JIM: I'm ready!

RED REF: Backlash is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

PETER: Ready!

BLUE REF: Ronin is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it' robot fightin' time! Ronin with the treads and saw at the front, Backlash with the 2 rear wheels and his own deadly blade. Both robots appear to be locked together, Bil.

BIL: Backlash has one wheel on the ground, so it might be able to escape.

TIM: Both robots free and Backlash is on his side! Backlash is in trouble and is taking a beating from the Pulverizors but is now back over. Here we go again and both bots become locked together like two male deer in battle. Backlash, free from Ronin and flipping Ronin over!

BIL: Ronin's got self-righting flags so he should be able to right himself.

TIM: Backlash doesn't seem to be allowing Ronin to right himself, Bil but he's taking him to the Pulverizor! Ronin, trying to right himself but is being brutally hit by the Pulverizor.

BLUE REF: 10.......9........8........7.......6........5.......4.......3.......2

........1.......stop the match!

BIL: Backlash movin' on to round 2.

TIM: Let's get Mark Beiro's official decision.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the time 2 minutes, 13 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, BACKLASH!

TIM: Who will face Backlash? Bil's got the answer.

BIL: Well I don't have the exact answer but we will once this match ends. Vlad the Inhaler is the exact battle-scarred duplicate of former champ Vlad the Impaler. Gauge Cauchois built him and is from Oakland, California. ShoveMaster2000 is Ramiro Mallari's creation and features his other bot's scoop wedge and can run upside down. Ramiro is from San Francisco, California.

TIM: Now it's time for Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: From the creator of Punjar comes his nastier twin. It's SHOVEMASTER2000! And in the blue square: Rising from the dead is the scarred robot back for revenge and he's lurking in the blue corner. He's VLAD THE INHALER!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Nose-to-nose attacks from both Vlad the Inhaler and ShoveMaster2000. Both robots flipped over but Vlad self-rights.

BIL: This could be advantageous for Vlad if he can get underneath ShoveMaster, Tim.

TIM: ShoveMaster back over and slams Vlad into the wall. Oh and both robots flipped again! Vlad the Inhaler back over, and now slamming ShoveMaster, bringing him back right-side up as well. Vlad the Inhaler's on his back end!

BIL: That's the easiest way to take Vlad out. The other sides can still knock him out but they're harder because of his design.

TIM: ShoveMaster, with the slam and Vlad's back over but ShoveMaster puts him on his back end again and this one's over. Let's see how the judges scored this bout.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 20 to 19 decision........for the red square, SHOVEMASTER2000!

TIM: An amazingly narrow win for ShoveMaster2000. Bil, take us through the bouts again.

BIL: Ziggo got destroyed in its bout with X-orcist, who will move on to fight FrenZy. Backlash dominated Ronin and let the arena hazards finish him off. Finally, ShoveMaster2000 proved to be just too much for Vlad the Inhaler, who only inhaled defeat.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as we continue our quest for robotic destruction, next week. Goodnight.

TIM: Both bots avoid the Pulverizors and Vlad II again with another big slam into the wall on Overkill. Overkill, taking damage from the Killsaws. Vlad II, controlling this fight. Vlad II, driving Overkill to the Pulverizors and Overkill is taking a beating! Oh Vlad II takes a shot! Vlad II must be careful not to hurt himself.

TIM: Oh, Atomic 2 righted by the Pulverizors! Minion MKII underneath Atomic 2 and slams him into the wall! Atomic 2 self-rights. Minion MKII flying over Atomic 2 like some kind of stunt devil.

BIL: That was sweet, Minion must've gotten a few feet in the air!

TIM: Atomic 2, back in control, pushing Minion into the hazards on the floor... Atomic 2, flipping Minion again and again and this one's over. Let's get the official decision with Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 26 to 24 decision.....for the red square, MINION MK II!

BIL: The newcomers in these bouts will have their work cut-out for them, Tim. It won't be an easy time for them in the box tonight.

TIM: Yes, especially since their opponents are bots that know the box better, Bil. What is the first pairing for tonight, Bil?

BIL: El Diablo is the wicked creation of Zach Bieber and features the dreaded spinning barrel of death. Feline is a pyramid-shaped bot with a spinning saw blade and always lands on its wheels. Its builders are Alan Gribble, David Gribble and Robert Bettington from England.

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Giant Cheese with the early flip and Panic Attack 3 is up against the wall.

BIL: Neither robot havin' much success right now, Tim.

TIM: Oh and Giant Cheese with the toss on Panic Attack 3! Panic Attack 3 is taking a beating from the Pulverizors and escapes.  Panic Attack underneath Giant Cheese and flips him over but Giant Cheese is back over. Giant Cheese, missing with his flipper.

BIL: Panic Attack flips Giant Cheese again and Giant Cheese is with the Pulverizors! That's it.

BIL: We lost the Pulverizor! It just snapped off as it was punishing Alpha Raptor! Stinger, very aggressive with that weapon, Tim.

TIM: Alpha Raptor loses the main part of his lifting arm. That could mean trouble and it does as Stinger flips him over!

BIL: Poor Alpha Raptor. Put up a good fight but it wasn't enough.

BLUE REF: 10.........9.......8.......7........6........5.........4........3........2

.......1........stop the match!

TIM: What a great night of robot fighting. Bil, give us the replays.

TIM: Newcomer Dantomkia wants to show Toro why he's the better robot.

BIL: Sabotage takes on Minion for the quest to move on.

TIM: Welcome to Battlebots, everyone, I'm Tin Green and next to me is Bil Dwyer.

BIL: Tonight's matches are going to be awesome, Tim. I'm amped up for some destruction so let's get to our first match. Grendel features a spring-loaded spike and was built by Daniel Rupert from San Diego, California. His opponent is Diesector whose weapons are a rear wedge and jaws at the front. Donald Hutson is also from San Diego.

TIM: Let's get the introductions.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square to my right: Waiting in the red corner for the slightest movement from his soon-to-die opponent is a deranged robot thirsty for annihilation. It's DIESECTOR!

DONALD: I'm ready!

RED REF: Diesector is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

DANIEL: Ready!

BLUE REF: Grendel is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Oh, Grendel with the early flip on Diesector!

BIL: Doesn't hurt Diesector though, he can run upside down.

TIM: Diesector flips Grendel! Grendel in trouble. Can Grendel right himself, Bil?

BIL: We haven't seen Grendel flipped anywhere in matches, Tim. Looks to me right now that he can't. Grendel's still upside down so I'd say his weapon can't help him here.

TIM: Grendel, taking major damage from the hazards and Diesector slams Grendel into the wall! Looks to me like Diesector is stuck with Grendel.

BIL: Yeah, but I guess it's workin' very well for Diesector, who gives him to another Pulverizor!

TIM: Grendel not righting himself at all and I think he's out.

BLUE REF: 10.........9........8.......7.......6.......5......4.......3.......2......

1......stop the match!

BIL: Diesector gets his revenge indeed!

TIM: Let's find out the decision.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the time: 1 minute, 31 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square: DIESECTOR!

TIM: Diesector with the knockout and some much needed revenge. How about our second match?

BIL: Oh man, this is a match that will be devastating Tim. We've seen what Dantomkia can do from the preliminary bouts and its flipper is amazing! Dantomkia is a wedge with a flipper. His builder is Michael Lambert from Chertsey. His opponent is Toro, whose builder is Reason Bradley from Sausalito, California.

TIM: It's time for Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: When it comes to bullfighting, he hurts, when it comes to robot fighting, he destroys. It's TORO! And in the blue square: A newcomer waiting to test its skills. Its attacks will give you the chills and it's here to show you the opponents he kills. Welcome DANTOMKIA!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

REASON: I am ready!

RED REF: Toro is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

BLUE REF: Dantomkia is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Dantomkia fires his weapon but Toro escapes. Oh, Toro popped into the air by Dantomkia!

BIL: I'm not sure Toro's weapon can get underneath Dantomkia at all.

TIM: Oh my gosh, Toro nearly tossed out of the arena!

BIL: That was a very high flip, Tim, probably a few feet into the air.

TIM: Dantomkia needs to get back over and he does. Dantomkia with another toss on Toro!

BIL: Toro's up against the wall, so he's going to have a hard time getting back over, Tim.

TIM: Toro back over but he seems to be stuck on the Spike Strip, Bil.

BIL: He can't even fire his weapon from there, Tim.

RED REF: 10........9........8.......7.......6.......5......4......3......2

.......1......stop the match!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: Ready!

RED REF: Minion is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MATT: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Sabotage is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Sabotage using his flipper but can't toss Minion and flips himself instead!

BIL: This is where Sabotage is very vulnerable to Minion's wedge.

TIM: Minion with a slam into the wall on Sabotage. Minion takes Sabotage to the Pulverizors! Sabotage with the flip on Minion but Minion is back over and takes damage from the Killsaws!

BIL: This is a great fight, back-and-forth!

TIM: Oh, Minion loses his self-righting mechanism and one of his sides is ripped open! Minion must now be very careful that Sabotage doesn't flip him again. Sabotage not able to get his flipper to flip Minion. Oh, he flips him again and this one's over!

RED REF: 10.........9.........8.........7.........6.........5...........4........3......

Episode 1

TIM: The all new Phase 7.0 of Battlebots has begun.

BIL:  First, Deadblow wants a shot against last season's champ, Shreds-A-Lot.

TIM: Then in a legendary rematch, Biohazard takes on Vlad the Impaler

BIL: Finally, newcomer Whirlwind battles the British robot Killerhurtz.

TIM: Hello everybody and welcome to the all new Phase 7.0, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. This is it, Tim, we have been waiting for this tournament for some time now.

TIM: Not only are there new bots for this tournament but the arena itself has changes of its own.

BIL: That's right, Tim. Last season, bots were getting stuck in between the floor and the wall. The walls have been reinforced to prevent this.

TIM: Now that that's out of the way, let's get to our first match up.

BIL: Deadblow comes from Grant Imahara from Oakland California. His weapons are a flipper and a wedge. Shreds-A-Lot features a wedge with saws inside the wedge. His builder is John McKenzie. from Ukiah California.

TIM: Now, here's Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: When it comes to gifts on Christmas, he always has one gift: the gift of pain! Here is SHREDS-A-LOT! And in the blue square: The only gift this Battlebot delivers on Christmas Day is defeat! Welcome DEADBLOW!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JON: Ready!

RED REF: Shreds-A-Lot is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GRANT: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Deadblow is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Oh, Deadblow with the early flip on Shreds-A-Lot!

BIL: Doesn't bother Shreds-A-Lot much, except that he's really vulnerable without that wedge.

TIM: Deadblow continues to toss Shreds-A-Lot again and again. So far that flipper is effective.

BIL: Might've spoke too soon as Deadblow's flipper seems to be stuck in the up position.

TIM: Oh and Shreds-A-Lot with a major hit on Deadblow and Deadblow's very close to the Killsaws!

BIL: Deadblow taking Killsaw damage.

TIM: Deadblow continuing to toss Shreds-A-Lot.

BIL: That's it. What a fight by Deadblow.

TIM: I think it's clear that Deadblow won so let's go to Mark Beiro.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 22 to 20 decision for....the blue square, DEADBLOW!

TIM: So Deadblow moves on to round 2. Bil, how about our next bout?

BIL: Vlad the Impaler is the creation of Gage Cauchois from Oakland, California. His weapon is the forklift on the front. Carlo Bertoccini's Biohazard features wedge fenders on all sides and the deadly lifting arm.

TIM:  Time for Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you get in the way of this robot, you'll find yourself in a deadly game of  bullfighting, courtesy of VLAD THE IMPALER! And in the blue square: Lurking in the blue corner is a robot toxic to all opponents. Here is BIOHAZARD!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GAUGE: Ready!

RED REF: Vlad the Impaler is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CARLO: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Biohazard with his specialty move on Vlad!

BIL: Vlad was nearly put on his side, Tim.

TIM: I don't think Vlad's weapon will be much against Biohazard, Bil.

BIL: Yeah, I don't think so either, Tim. They seem way to high up to even get under Biohazard.

TIM: Biohazard, continuing to push Vlad around and Vlad again slammed into the wall!

BIL: So far, this is all Biohazard. Vlad has nothing right now.

TIM: Oh, Vlad slammed again and this time flipped over! Vlad better get out of there because here comes the Pulverizor!

BIL: Two hits on Vlad from the Pulverizor!

TIM: Vlad's under Biohazard, Bil! Now Vlad slams Biohazard into the wall and now I think he's out, Bil.

BIL: His wheels are clearly off the floor and he's trying to get himself off but his weapon can't go far enough.

BLUE REF: 10..........9.........8............7...........6........5..........4.............3

...........2...........1...............stop the match!

TIM: Biohazard knocked out in 1 minute 38. What is our last match-up like, Bil?

BIL: Whirlwind features a vertical disc. His builder is Andrew Marchant from Huntingdon. His opponent is Killerhurtz who features an axe as his weapon.

TIM: Let's get to the introductions.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square: He's the perfect storm in Battlebots, he's the robot in the red corner named WHIRLWIND! And in the blue square:  Get this robot mad and you will not see what comes next. Here's KILLERHURTZ!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

ANDREW: I am ready!

RED REF: Whirlwind is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JOHN: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Killerhurtz is ready!

TIM: The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Neither robot seeming to get any edge in this fight.

BIL: Well, neither robot has a flipper or wedge to allow that, Tim. Oh man, look at Killerhurtz and Whirlwind, Tim!

TIM: Whirlwind is on his back but can run that way and Killerhurtz looks to be in trouble.

BIL: He seems to be having righter problems, he can right himself as we've seen in past fights but somethin's wrong.

BLUE REF: 10..........9...........8..........7............6.............5............4

..............3..............2............1.............stop the match!

BIL: Whirlwind movin' to round 2!

TIM: An exciting beginning to this season's tournament! Bil, how about some replays.

BIL: With pleasure. Deadblow took home the close Judges Decision after flipping last season's champ around the box. Vlad the Impaler advances after knocking out his former rival Biohazard. In our last match, Whirlwind blew away any chances Killerhurtz had at winning the bout.

TIM: For everyone on our team, I'm Tim Green.

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer, reminding you to stay tuned for more robotic destruction next time. See ya then.

Episode 16

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

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

SEAN: I'm as excited as you are, Bil, let's get the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MATT: I am ready!

RED REF: Red Driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver are you ready?

JOHN: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Ankle Biter must be careful as his bottom frame is very vulnerable to Sabotage.

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

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

BLUE REF: 10...........9...........8...........7..........6...........5...........4.........

3...........2..........1..........stop the match!

BIL: Sabotage movin' on to the finals!

SEAN: A good fight indeed now let's get the official decision.

SEAN: Now comes the battle we always wait for, Bil. How does the championship play out?

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

SEAN: Here we go, it's time for the introductions for this championship match.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MATT: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: I am definitely ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

SEAN: Sabotage continues to dominate this fight as we see yet another toss against SAL.

BIL: SAL is in trouble if he can't get back over, Sean.

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

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

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

RED REF: 10............9...........8...........7............6...........5............4

...........3..........2...........1..........stop the match!

SEAN: So that's it, Shreds-A-Lot is our champion of Battlebots!

BIL: Kudos to George Hazard, well done my friend!

SEAN: Now let's get the final decision.

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

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

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

Episode 15

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

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

SEAN: Yes and we'll be that much closer to crowning a champion.

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

SEAN: Let's get the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JOHN: I am

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GAUGE: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: It seems that Vlad just can't get his forks under Ankle Biter to really do anything because maybe Ankle Biter is heavier.

SEAN: Take a look at the punishment to Ankle Biter by Vlad as he is slammed into the wall and flipped over.

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

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

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

BLUE REF: 10..........9..........8..........7.........6..........5............4............

3...........2...........1............stop the match!

SEAN: What an upset by Ankle Biter. Now let's get the official results from Mark Beiro.

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

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

SEAN: Thanks, Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MICHAEL: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MATT: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Now Sabotage gets the flip!

SEAN: Oh, look at both robots, they both got flipped over!

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

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

BIL: Twin Paradox under Sabotage! Aw, can't hang on to him, though. There he goes again! Still can't quite hold him.

SEAN: Both robots back over and Twin Paradox has lost his blade and is stuck on one of the spikes in the spike strip!

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

RED REF: 10............9...........8...........7..........6..........5.........4...........

3..........2...........1...........stop the match!

SEAN: A pleasure to have you, Bil. Now it's time for the introductions

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Overkill scores a blow on top of Shreds-A-Lot. Doesn't seem to have harmed Shreds-A-Lot though.

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

BIL: It looks like both robots are stuck now, Sean.

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

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

SEAN: An impressive flip by Overkill but this match is just about done.

BIL: What a fight, who's moving on?

SEAN: Well Mark Beiro has the answer.

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

SEAN: Shreds-A-Lot moving on to the Semi-Finals! Bil, rewind the tape for us.

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

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

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

Episode 14

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

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

SEAN: Here we go again, it's time for Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MICHAEL: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: A near-miss for Dreadnaught from the Pulverizors, Sean.

SEAN: How about that, Dreadnaught is stuck in the Killsaw hole there, Bil.

BIL: That's not a good place to be in if you're Dreadnaught.

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

BIL: Those wheels don't look to be moving, Sean. I don't think he can move at all.

SEAN: Looks like there's movement again from Dreadnaught and he's back in this fight.

BIL: Dreadnaught's stuck in the Killsaw hole again, Sean!

SEAN: Not only that, Bil but one of his wheels seems to be stuck in the spike strip.

BLUE REF: 10........9........8........7.........6.........5.........4........3........2

.........1.........stop the match!

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

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

SEAN: Too bad for Dreadnaught, he was such a good robot, Bil.

BIL: Indeed he was, Sean. He just didn't get the luck he needed for this fight.

SEAN: How does our second pair look?

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

SEAN: Thanks, Bil, now lets go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

ILYA: I am definitely ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

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

SEAN: There's your flip and I think this one's over.

BIL: Come on, I wanna see some destruction for the poor robot.

BLUE REF: 10..........9...........8...........7..........6........5...........4........

3.........2.........1........stop the match!

BIL: Aw, he couldn't do it but he's movin' on to round 4.

SEAN: What a win for Overkill, huh? Now lets get the statistics from Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: Time for Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JIM: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: Definitely ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Yeah, I see Backlash's wheels movin' but he doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

RED REF: 10........9..........8...........7.........6..........5...........4...........

3.........2.........1........stop the match!.

SEAN: Utter domination by Shreds-A-Lot and George Hazard. Lets find out from Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: What an exciting night of robot fighting. Bil, play it back for us.

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

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

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

Episode 13

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

BIL: This is going to be an awesome set of fights, Sean.

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

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

SEAN: Thank you, Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JOHN: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

DONALD: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Doesn't hurt Diesector, though, he's designed to handle running upside down.

SEAN: Diesector has Ankle Biter on top of him, Bil.

BIL: Couldn't hold him though as Ankle Biter is back on the floor. Diesector with a slam into the spike strip for Ankle Biter.

SEAN: Oh my goodness, look at Diesector, he's on his side!

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

BLUE REF: 10......9........8.........7........6........5.........4........3..........2

........1........stop the match!

SEAN: That's it for Diesector now lets' get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: What a disappointment for Donald Hutson and Diesector, Bil. How does out second pair match up?

BIL: Vlad II is the creation of Gauge Cauchois from Oakland California. His weapon is a pair of lifting forks. Panic Attack also has lifting forks and was built by Kim Davis from England.

SEAN: As always, thanks Bil. Now let's go for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GAUGE: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

KIM: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Two hits from the Pulverizor.

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

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

SEAN: So who won this bout? Let's find out from Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: Now for the introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MATT: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Sabotage is relentless, that's another flip to Minion.

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

RED REF: 10........9..........8..........7.........6............5..........4.........3

..........2..........1............stop the match!

SEAN: So that's it, a quick win for Sabotage. Let's get the official decision.

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

SEAN: Another episode comes to a close. Bil, take us through the highlights.

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

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. We leave you now with the hit of the week. See ya.

Episode 12

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

BIL: This is it, after tonight, the last three slots will be filled with bots for round 3.

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

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

SEAN: Let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

ILYA: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

REASON: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

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

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

BLUE REF: 10........9.........8.......7........6........5......4.......3.......2

.......1........stop the match!

SEAN: Blade Runner advancing to round 4. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: As always, I thank you Bil now let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: Ready

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JOHN: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

SEAN: Oh my goodness, it's gone, the wedge is nearly gone! What's that going to do to ShoveMaster's driving?

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

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

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

SEAN: So who's won this? Time for the official decision.

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

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

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

SEAN: It's time for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

RICHARD: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JIM: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Backlash doesn't really stand much of a chance in this bout, Sean.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Episode 11

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

BIL: Another round of robotic destruction to delight our readers, as well as ourselves, Sean.

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

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

SEAN: Thank you Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

REASON: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL:  That's not good when it's his only weapon. Toro got another flip on Dreadnaught.

SEAN: A punishing blow by Dreadnaught and I think it was so punishing that both bots lost their weapons completely.

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

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

BLUE REF: 10.......9........8........7.......6........5.......4........3.......2.......

1.......stop the match!

SEAN: Toro is out of the tournament so let's get the official statistics from Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: It's that time once again, here's Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red drivers, are you ready?

TONY: We're ready!

RED REF: Red drivers are ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MICHAEL: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Not much for Twin Paradox to do against Hazard, is there?

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

BIL: It went flying off in one piece, Sean! What a hit by Hazard!

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

BIL: It was looking so promising for Hazard, wasn't it Sean?

SEAN: Yes it was, especially with all the flips Hazard did and the trip to the Pulverizor.

RED REF: 10.......9........8.........7........6........5........4.......3.......2........

1.....stop the match!

BIL:  Twin Paradox, a come from behind victory!

SEAN: Now let's get the official decision with Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: What an upset by Twin Paradox. Now who are our last competitors tonight, Sean?

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

SEAN: As always, thank you, Bil now here's Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GRANT: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Overkill doesn't really have anything he can use to get under Deadblow, does he, Sean?

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

BIL: Both bots just took Killsaw damage, Sean.

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

BIL: Not sure whether he can get out of there, Sean as Overkill is trying to keep him there.

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

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in an 18 to 14 decision for the red square, OVERKILL!

SEAN: Overkill takes the close 18 to 14 decision. Bil, take us through the highlights.

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

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. There's more destruction next week as round two continues. See you then.

Episode 10

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Tonight's matches look as awesome as ever, Sean.

SEAN: That's what makes Battlebots so great and why many people watch it, Bil.

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

SEAN: As always, thank you Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MARK: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

GAUGE: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: There isn't much to get underneath and lift with for Vlad II, Sean.

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

BIL: Both robots flipped over, Sean!

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

RED REF: 10......9........8........7.......6.......5.......4.......3......2......1

.......stop the match!

SEAN: So Vlad II moves to round 3. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the time, 1 minute 13 seconds, the winner by a knockout, in the blue square, VLAD II!

SEAN: Bil, tell us about our next pair.

BIL: Nightmare is the deadly creation of Jim Smentowski from Novato, California. Sabotage has a flipper that also works a s clamp. His builder isMatt Sabotino from Greenwood, Indiana.

SEAN: It's time for the introductions with Mark Beiro.

MARK: Introducing, in the red square to my right: If you think that victory is in your future when you face this deadly Battlebot, it's on a NIGHTMARE! And his opponent, in the blue square: Everywhere you go, you'll see this maniacal fiend screwing with other's plans. He's SABOTAGE!

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JIM: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MATT: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Nightmare survived the flip, Sean, he's still on his feet!

SEAN: It is amazing that Nightmare lived but can he survive a second as he is tossed higher still into the air?

BIL: Nightmare lived again!

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

BIL:  He looks like he's going to slam Nightmare into the wall and he does.

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

BIL: I think it's pretty clear who's won this bout, Sean.

SEAN: Let's find out from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentleman, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 23 to 17 decision, for the red square, SABOTAGE!

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

BIL: Ziggo is a spinner created by Jonathan Ridder of San Jose, California. His opponent is Minion II, who was built by Christian Carleburg of North Hollywood, California.

SEAN: Time for the introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JON: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Minion flipped again!

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

BIL: What a hit! That's it for Ziggo, Sean.

SEAN: It is, Bil.

RED REF: 10.....9.......8.......7.......6........5........4.......3.......2......

1......stop the match!

SEAN: Ziggo out of the tournament and Minion moves on. Let's get the official statistics from Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: Another exciting episode has come to a close. Bil take us through the highlights.

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

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

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

Episode 9

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

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

SEAN: Now it's time for the introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JOHN: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you read?

CHRISTIAN: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

SEAN: Oh, Minion flipped by Ankle Biter!

BIL: I certainly didn't see that coming, Sean.

SEAN: It was certainly possible but I had my doubts. Minion's back on his wheels again.

BIL: Look at Ankle Biter! Minion nearly has him on his back end!

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

BIL: Take a look at Minion's side, Sean. That hit definitely ripped open Minion's side.

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

BIL:  A close match, Sean.

SEAN: Let's go to Mark Beiro for the decision.

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

SEAN:  Ankle Biter knocks Minion out of the tournament. How do our next competitors match up, Bil?

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

SEAN: Thanks a lot, Bil now let's get the intros from Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

DON: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

ZACH: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

SEAN: A third punishing blow by Diesector!

BIL: I think it was so punishing that The Devil is out.

SEAN: He is out as we can now see the innards of The Devil.

BLUE REF: 10........9........8........7.........6.......5.......4.......3.......2........

1.......stop the match!

BIL: That was a sweet fight! Diesector movin' on!

SEAN:  Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: What a brilliant display from Donald Hutson. How does our last match for tonight shape up?

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

SEAN: As always, thanks Bil. It's time for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

KIM: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

ZACH: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

SEAN: There goes Panic Attack with the first official flip of this match.

BIL: El Diablo back in this now but what does he have against Panic Attack?

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

BLUE REF: 10.......9.......8........7......6......5.......4.......3.......2........

1.......stop the match!

BIL: That's it! What a fight!

SEAN: Total domination by Panic Attack. Time for the official decision.

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

SEAN: What an awesome way to open round 2. Bil, take us through the highlights.

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

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight.

Episode 8

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer.

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

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

SEAN: Time for Mark Beiro's introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GEORGE: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CARLO: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Yeah, Sean. Oh wait he's back over. I think PAIN is outmatched, here, Sean.

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

BIL: That's it for him, Sean. His wheels aren't even touching the ground.

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

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

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen, the time 1 minute, 18 seconds. The winner, by a knockout, in the red square, SHREDS-A_LOT!

SEAN: There you have it Shreds-A-Lot moving on. Bil, tell us about our next pair.

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

SEAN: Thanks Bil now let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

PATRICK: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JIM: I am definitely ready

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: FrenZy back on his feet, Sean.

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

BIL: FrenZy went flying, Sean! Now he's stuck on top of our arena wall! Look at Backlash taking shots at him!

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

BIL: Now that was a fight, Sean.

SEAN: It certainly was and let's go to Mark Beiro for the Judges Decision.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen, the 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27 to 24 decision for the blue square, BACKLASH!

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

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

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

RICHARD: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JASON: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: New Cruelty doesn't have anything against the doctor, Sean.

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

BIL: That's it for Dr. Inferno Jr.

SEAN: New Cruelty with a slam into the wall!

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

SEAN: New Cruelty takes the final slot for round 2. Bil, take us through the highlights.

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

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

Episode 7:

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

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

SEAN: Thanks Bil, now lets go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

ROBERT: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

REASON: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: He's driving on his flipper, Sean!

SEAN: Take a look at the big blow these two made as

T-Minus is on his back right now.

BIL: T-Minus' flipper is good but it struggles when

T-Minus isn't on his back, Sean.

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

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

RED REF: 10......9........8.......7.......6........5.........4........3.......2.......

1.......stop the match!

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

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

SEAN: How do our next match ups look, Bil?

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

SEAN: As always, thanks Bill. Let's go to Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

ROBERT: I am ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

ILYA: Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: He sure does, Sean. Guess he's free now.

SEAN: Look at Atomic 2, who just lost one of his side panels there!

BIL: What a hit! Atomic 2 still movin', though. Blade Runner's on his back now!

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

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

RED REF: 10......9........8.......7......6.......5..........4.......3.......2......

1......stop the match!

SEAN:  So another one of Robert's robots knocked out of the competition. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: Thanks Bil, now lets go to the floor with Mark Beiro.

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

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

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

SEAN: Not with ShoveMaster delivering more blows to him.

RED REF: 10......9........8........7........6........5........4.......3........2.......

1......stop the match!

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

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

SEAN: Take us through the bouts again, Bil.

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

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Stay tuned as the Battlebots tournament continues next week.

Episode 6:

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer.

SEAN: Tonight's fights are looking to dish out more amazing hits. Let's bring on our first competitors.

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

SEAN: Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

MICHAEL: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue drivers, are you ready?

CHARLES: You're darn right we are!

BLUE REF: Blue drivers are ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Mauler, Mauler, Mauler, how many times have we seen this?

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

SEAN: Well Mauler gets to ride home as Twin Paradox advances. Lets' go to Mark Beiro for the results.

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

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

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

SEAN: Thanks Bil, now lets go to the floor with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

TREY: Ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Overkill looks to be stuck with the Spike Strip, Sean.

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

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

SEAN: Overkill's moving on to face either Deadblow or Mechavore. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

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

SEAN: There you have it, Overkill moving on. Now lets get to our final bout.

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

SEAN: Time for introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

GRANT: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

ROBERT: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Not a bad idea considering how vulnerable he is to flipping, Sean.

SEAN: Speaking of flipping, Bil, Mechavore's been flipped by the Killsaws!

BIL: That's it, Deadblow movin' on.

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

SEAN: Now for the official decision with Mark Beiro.

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

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

BIL: And I'm Bil Dwyer. Join us next time for more robot carnage. Goodnight.

Episode 5:

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

BIL: I'm with you on that, Sean.

SEAN: Bil, introduce our fans to our first competitors.

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

SEAN: Let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

CARLO: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

CHRISTIAN: I am ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Yeah, I don't see any signs of Question Mark getting under Dreadnaught at all, Sean.

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

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

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

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

SEAN: It's that time again, here's Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

JACHA: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

REASON: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

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

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

SEAN: So Toro moves on after losing his weaponry. Lets' go to Mark Beiro for the official results.

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

SEAN: Now for our final competitors, tonight. Bil, talk about these two.

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

SEAN: It's time for the official introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

DON: I'm definitely ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

TONY:  Ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

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

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

BIL: Too bad, though, as it seems like Hazard's moving on anyway.

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

SEAN: Hazard is definitely moving on, lets go to Mark Beiro for the official decision.

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

SEAN: Another jam-packed night of robot domination. Take us through the highlights, Bil.

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

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

BIL: I'm Bil Dwyer. Join us next time for more robotic annihilation. Goodnight.

Episode 4:

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

BIL: That I am, Sean and we have another 3 Battlebots thirsty for robot carnage.

SEAN: Bill, tell our viewers about are first Battlebots tonight.

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

SEAN: Thanks Bil, now let's go to Mark Beiro for the introductions.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

SCOT: Ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

MATT: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: Both are well-made bots, this one's going the distance, Sean.

SEAN: There goes another blow by Sabotage and it looks to me like Dooall is stuck.

BIL: Sure does, Sean, but he's free now.

SEAN: Dooall's taking Sabotage to the Pulverizors!

BIL: Two great pounding blows by the Pulverizor!

SEAN: Take a look at Sabotage, who is now on his back, he's in trouble.

BIL: Yeah he is, especially since his flipper can't get underneath Dooall at all.

SEAN: A big slam by Sabotage and both robots seem incapacitated, Bil.

BIL: They are, so the refs will have to pause and free the bots.

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

BIL: What a fight by these two!

SEAN: Let's go to Mark Beiro for the Judges Decision.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 29-21 decision, for the red square, SABOTAGE!

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

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

SEAN:  Let's go down to Mark Beiro with the statistics.

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

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

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

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

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

SEAN: Minion II moving on. Let's get the official decision from Mark Beiro.

MARK: Ladies and gentlemen, the time, 1 minute, 55 seconds, the winner, by knockout, in the red square, Minion II!

SEAN: Now for our last pair of Battlebots

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

SEAN: Time for the introductions with Mark Beiro.

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

RED REF: Red driver, are you ready?

LISA: I'm ready!

RED REF: Red driver is ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver, are you ready?

JON: I'm ready!

BLUE REF: Blue driver is ready!

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

BIL: That's right, Sean. Ziggo on the Killsaws right now.

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

BIL: Tentomushi just tore Ziggo apart! Oh man, what a hit!

SEAN: We have just under 30 seconds to go and Ziggo's unable to self-right because he's up against the wall.

BIL: What an awesome fight!

SEAN: It was indeed awesome, Bil, let's go to Mark Beiro for the results.

MARK: The 3 judges at arena side have turned in a 27-23 decision for the blue square, ZIGGO!

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

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

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

BIL: And I'm Bil Dwyer. Goodnight.

Episode 3:

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

"I'm ready!" answered Gage.

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

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

"Ready!" replied Peter Abrahamson.

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

"Yes he is, Bil," agreed Sean.

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Ready!" replied Mark Setrakian.

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

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

"I am ready!" nodded Daniel Rupert.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"What a fight!" shouted Bil excitedly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Ready!" said Jim

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

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

"I'm ready!" replied Vincent Blood.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Episode 2:

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

"Ready!" answered Zach Bieber.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

"That was a sweet fight!" shouted Bil

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

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

 

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

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

"Ready!" answered Zach.

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

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

"I'm ready!" answered Chuck Pitzer.

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

"Ready!" replied Kim Davies.

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

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

"I'm ready!" stated Gage Cauchois.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Episode 1:

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

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

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

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

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

"Ready!" replied Jon Reid.

"Red driver is ready," repeated the ref.

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

"I'm ready!" answered Christian Carlberg

"Blue driver is ready!" called the ref.

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

"He's getting pulverized!" added Bil.

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

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

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

"Killerhurtz isn't looking too good right now, Sean, he seems to be having trouble righting himself," said Bil.

"He's up against the wall, which drops out many angles for self-righting," elaborated Sean.

"Look at Minion taking cheap shots on Killerhurtz with his saw!" shouted Bil.

"There we see the flip-over by Killerhurtz," said Sean.

"Oh, look at Minion, who's now jammed between the wall and the floor, Sean!" reacted Bil.

"He's in trouble if he can't free himself. We are down to the last few seconds of the bout now as Minion slams Killerhurtz into the Spike Strip!" finished Sean.

"What a way to end it too!" concluded Bil.

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

"The 3 judges at arena side, have turned in a 21 to 19 decision....for....the blue square, MINION!" announced Mark.

 

"Next up, it's Bad Attitude vs. Ankle Biter so let's go to Mark Beiro," stated Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square to my right: He's bad, he's mad, he's the worst pet you'd ever have, he's ANKLE BITER! And his opponent, in the blue square: The only favor he'll ask you to do is lose to him in a Battlebots tournament. Please welcome BAD ATTITUDE!" declared Mark.

 

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time! Bad Attitude immediately slams Ankle Biter into the corner. Take a look now, as AB is slammed into the Spike Strip!" began Sean.

"Where AB has gotten stuck countless times," recalled Bil.

"Not this time as he is free and is now slamming BA into the wall," protested Sean.

"This is a great fight, two robots not afraid of slamming one another into the wall!" admitted Bil.

"Bad Attitude has Ankle Biter under the Pulverizor, our renovated Pulverizor!" noted Sean.

"Ankle Biter just flipped BA over, right onto the Killsaws!" realized Bil.

"BA is lucky this time because the Killsaws helped him out but it also gave AB hazard points," continued Sean.

"Bad Attitude not looking good right now as he's just lost a side panel," noted Bil.

"Is Bad Attitude incapacitated, Bil?" asked Sean.

"Yeah, it looks like he is, I can't see his wheels touching the ground, Sean. Oh, they're counting BA out!" replied Bil.

"Well, Ankle Biter moves on to the next round. Bil, who are our next pair of bots?" stated Sean.

"Son of Whyachi is a kind of walker bot with a helicopter-like weapon. His builder is Terry Ewart of Dorchester, Wisconsin. Diesector is built by Donald Hutson of San Diego California. His weapons are two battle axes. jaws and a wedge," explained Bil.

"Well, here to introduce the bots is Mark Beiro," resumed Sean.

"Introducing, in the red square, to my right: If you even think that you are going to beat him unscathed, talk to DIESECTOR! And his opponent, in the blue square: Don't make fun of this deadly robot or you'll end up without any legs to stand on. Welcome SON OF WHYACHI!" shared Mark.

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

"Ready!" replied Donald.

"Diesector is ready!" declared the ref.

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

"Ready!" answered Terry.

"Son of Whyachi is ready!" repeated the ref.

"The box is locked, the lights are on, it's robot fightin' time!" shouted Sean.

"Diesector comes straight out of his square and slams into SOW, trying to flip him over but Son of Whyachi moves away," began Bil.

 

"Son of Whyachi just flipped Diesector, what an amazing moment there," stated Bil.

"Doesn't matter because Diesector can run either way and slams SOW into the wall and it looks like SOW lost his wheels!" noted Bil.

 

"He's incapacitated!" added Sean.

"What a fight!" finished Bil.

"Our first Battlebots episode has come to a close. Bil, take us through the highlights," requested Sean.

"With pleasure. Minion takes a close victory, despite the brutal attacks by Killerhurtz. Ankle Biter moves on after Bad Attitude got caught in  the Spike Strip. Finally, Diesector rides to the next round after pulling off a one-hit knock out," recapped Bil.

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

"I'm Bil Dwyer and we leave you with the hit of the week. Goodnight," finished Bil.
