BattlesEdit

Kan-Opener Vs TaurusEdit

Kan-Opener immediatly managed to get a hold of Taurus from the front, but the orange robot managed to used its flipper to get Kan-Opener off the ground and take it towards the pit. Taurus tried to get Kan-Opener in the pit, but the Robot Wars Annihilator Champion refused to let go and give up. The battle stopped and the Judge ruled that Kan-Opener was in the pit anyway.

Winner: Taurus

Merlin Vs VelocirippaEdit

Merlin got the first flip in on Velocirippa, but the opposition just rolled back onto its wheels. Merlin attempted to flip Velocirippa out the arena, but it didn't work, it then flipped the dinosaur-like robot onto its side where it couldn't self-right. Merlin left it there for a few seconds before re-righting it in trying to get it out the arena. Merlin flipped Velocirippa again before both robots spent some time getting thrown about by the arena flipper, Merlin then flipped Velocirippa onto its side where it couldn't self-right and this time knocked it into the already open pit.

Winner: Merlin
