Winner: Merlin

Storm 2 (4) Vs HadesEdit

Both robots dodged around each other to start off with, Hades tried to flip Storm 2 but missed and the bungee cord for its flipper broke in the process meaning the entire flipper was hanging over the back of the Belgian machine throughout most of the battle. Storm 2 activated the pit and pursued Hades around the arena, it then tried to get it down the pit but missed and nearly went in itself. Hades then drove in accidentally giving Storm 2 the win.

Winner: Storm 2

Kronic (6) Vs 8645TEdit

Kronic immediatley got its first flip on 8645T throwing it against the arena wall where it tried to self-right, but couldn't.

Winner: Kronic

Dantomkia Vs Tough As NailsEdit

Both robots came in and Dantomkia got the first attack in and tried to flip Tough As Nails out the arena, but failed and it got itself stuck on the arena wall instead and the Dutch entrant rolled away from the arena wall. Tough As Nails got in behind Dantomkia and dragged it away and pinned it in the corner for a moment. After breaking free, Dantomkia tried to flip the Dutch robot out, but it kept rolling off its wedge. Tough As Nails then activated the pit and Dantomkia for some reason broke down. Tough As Nails got behind the Best Promising Newcomer Award Winner from Robot Wars Series 6 and pushed it down the pit.

Winner: Tough As Nails

Behemoth Vs TantoEdit

Behemoth immediatly drove in on the attack and flipped Tanto against the arena wall, it tried but struggled to get it out the arena. Eventually, after a few more failed attempt flips, Tanto was knocked off the arena wall back on its wheels and the fight continued. Behemoth got thrown by the arena flipper but it landed back on its wheels and continued shoving Tanto around the arena, Tanto struggled hugely against its opponnents maneuverability but still couldn't be flipped out. Behemoth in an attack then flipped itself forwards over, but it self-righted and continued fighting. Tanto managed to get its prongs in on Behemoth a few times but couldn't do it any harm. Eventually, both robots came into contact with the arena flipper where Behemoth was flipped onto its scoop and Tanto became trapped underneath the arena flipper. Behemoth ran out of gas to self-right and Tanto couldn't free itself so the battle ended and the crowd and Judge ruled in favour of Behemoth for being the most aggressive in the fight.

Winner: Behemoth

Tough As Nails Vs HadesEdit

Hades got the first attack in the battle flipping Tough As Nails nearly getting it out the arena. The Dutch robot retaliated by grabbing Hades in its pincers before it broke away. Tough As Nails made a move to activate the pit and grabbed Hades from the rear trying desperatly to drag the Belgian robot towards the pit. Hades broke free and flipped Tough As Nails twice nearly getting it out the arena in both attempts and flipped it over twice, but this made no difference as Tough As Nails could run either-way-up. Hades then tried to get Tough As Nails out the arena again, but failed and th Dutch Latter got in from behind and grabbed Hades to try and drag it into the pit. Tough As Nails dragged Hades towards the pit rapidly, but Hades broke free from Tough As Nails and got away just in time, but Tough As Nails got its jaws around Hades again and this time dumped it down the pit.
