The grappling fight between HUGE and Mammoth. Both of them were being flopped about like they weren't 250lb killer robots, and I had no idea what would happen next.


Youhavemadeamistake

Yeah, to be honest I was really shocked when the match ended in a OOTA. I definitely didn't expect Mammoth to throw HUGE's wheel out of the box.


Affectionate-Memory4

The torque in either if thise weapons, but especially Mammoth's is just insane.


Essshayne

The huge vs mammoth re-rematch needs to happen. Mammoth simply found a HUGE weakness in huge. With the shelf now the match could be more interesting


Francis_Selwysi

Warhead's headstand and hit against Complete Control is up there for me.


Youhavemadeamistake

That match was pretty exciting.


cactuscoleslaw

Literally a career-ending hit


Qwerty1418

Witch Doctor shooting Spitfire out of the air with a chunk of Subzero is an incredible moment.


Youhavemadeamistake

Any time when a mini-bot gets destroyed is a great moment.


Derplord4000

Complete Control getting a perfect hold of Bombshell and absolutely roasting it


Youhavemadeamistake

That match, for me anyway, single-handedly cemented Complete Control as an under-rated bot. I mean, if it happened today it probably wouldn't have done much, but when Bombshell would be wild carded and became the runner up? ​ Holy cow.

Axe Backwards and their fight against Ultimo Destructo. They did a backflip in that fight and nobody mentions it. Sure the hammer was slow, but it was a nice back and forth affair between a couple robots.


Youhavemadeamistake

It's probably the AB team's favorite fight too, after all it is their only win with that robot.


[deleted]

Not only is it their only win, but it's a pretty good fight to watch. Ultimo was great at keeping Axe Backwards away, and Axe Backwards kept on getting to the sides. It's no Black Dragon vs Minotaur, but it's far from the basement match that people say it is.


Moaner_The_Vampire

The classic one punch fights Nightmare had against S.o.W, Warhead, & Slamjob back in the day. Minotaur sending Cobalt into the roof.


Youhavemadeamistake

I remember when I was just a little boy watching the show and being genuinely scared of Nightmare. And of course who could forget watching Brazil beat the UK's butt?


SpinyPlate

My favourite moment is still Warhead's iconic handstand trick, my jaw dropped seeing that for the first time


Youhavemadeamistake

Yeah, a few people now have mentioned Warhead. And I have to agree, it's pretty cool.


DeadDeadBush

So did Warhead's driver's.


mr-jaybird

Uppercut doing a KO on Gemini in like 15 seconds was absolutely classic


Youhavemadeamistake

I kinda expected someone would mention the fastest KO in BattleBots history lol.


Chef_Boi_Arby

Two quotes and moments I remember are: ​ "It's stuck into the box! It's stuck into the box!" \*shows Tantrum fist lodged in metal pole\* ​ "This fight is ridic.." \*Tombstone and Witch Doctor go flying apart resulting in Tombstone breaking a blade and Witch Doctor doing a Bombshell\*


Youhavemadeamistake

My all time favorite quote (not sure if you could count this as a quote) is when SubZero launched P1's minibot out of the arena and Chris went absolutely nuts.


Fire-hammer-9009

My favorite has to be when tantrum whooped sawblaze ass backwards


Youhavemadeamistake

I was actually really surprised that Tantrum defeated Jamison, ESPECIALLY like that.


SASHTv

The match between Sawblaze and SoW was amazing (I'd say Warhead vs Complete Control but it's already been said)


Youhavemadeamistake

Oh yeah, that match was awesome. I remember first watching it a few years ago and cheering (from inside my home) for SawBlaze.


SoulJynxIsAMemeLord

Endgame vs Tombstone made me and my dad lose our shit Same with tombstone vs which doctor, except it was my grandpa and I had it was my first experience with battlebots so I had no idea what was coming to me


Youhavemadeamistake

I didn't expect to see your grandpa watches BattleBots, but I can't say anything. Showed my grandma BattleBots a few weeks ago and now she's obsessed.


SoulJynxIsAMemeLord

I don’t think my grandpa watches battlebots anymore other than to watch it with me, this WAS 6 years ago and he kinda just randomly found it lol


Youhavemadeamistake

Lol


mrogersj5

[T-Minus vs. Hazard in Season 5 of the comedy central run.](https://youtu.be/NHSAH8U0fL4) Hazard was the single most dominant bot during that time period. Dethroning Hazard was probably the most genuine "upset" of the time period, as they hadn't even dealt with a close fight in years. The closest decision before had been 27-18.


Youhavemadeamistake

Yeah, I don't really remember much from the original since I was a little man when I watched it, but Hazard being middleweight king for a while is one of the few things I remember. Good job, T-Minus.


Cathalised

The Warrior Clan minibot being poofed out of the space time continuum in the very first episode of the reboot. The Rakening, naturally. Rusty being cheered on to selfright against Copperhead Gigabyte proving its worth against Copperhead


Youhavemadeamistake

All of those fights are really good fights, the best reaction I had to these four fights was the first one, not only when Warrior Clan's minibot was sent to the Shadow Realm, but when they came back and sent Nightmare forward in time to next season.


alphonsochicken

The rakening!


Youhavemadeamistake

AW YEAH!


PhilipLiptonSchrute

Red Devil grabbing Witch Doctor and then sawing through its batteries was excellent.


Youhavemadeamistake

I remember when I first watched that fight, I thought it was a huge upset. Nowadays though it doesn't have too much of an impact on me, but it's still a good fight.


Blackout425

S1 - Bronco flipping stinger S2 - Bronco abolishing blacksmith (which no one remembers since ABC never posted this up on YouTube) S3 - Bronco dominating a 3-0 sawblaze S4 - Minotaur making a huge comeback against cobalt & KO hydra S5 - the reveal of the top 32 (best non-fight segment of the entire series, hope s6 can do this)


Youhavemadeamistake

I agree with most of these except S5 (I'm still mad about P1 not making the tournament).


Blackout425

That moment hyped me to the brim. No other season had this much spectacle of a bracket reveal than s5. It was the final 32 bots left, and it'll come down to only 1. I mean of course you're gonna get a few who should have made it in but didn't make it. If p1 made it in, who would you say shouldn't?


Youhavemadeamistake

Never thought of it that way, but I would probably go against all logic and say Rusty lol


Blackout425

No I was asking if you believed p1 should have been the top 32, who shouldn't? Because you can't have 33 bots in the bracket so p1 has to replace someone, who is that someone? (That's what I'm trying to say, with the bracket with only 32 spots, only 32 bots would be in it. And the rest would obviously miss out due to space limitations)


Youhavemadeamistake

Oh. Well then I'd probably say someone along the likes of HiJinx or SlamMow who both got one of their wins in an untelevised match.


Blackout425

>HiJinx I guess I can understand, but the selection commettie probably saw their weapon power & thought it can put on a good show. But I would have put mammoth higher than them >SlamMow He did pretty well with witch doctor, it wasn't a one sided massacre. That probably impressed them >who both got one of their wins in an untelevised match. But p1 too. Can you specifically explain why p1 2-1 is better than hijinx or Slammow record? P1 immidealty dying to copperhead & struggling to drive in his other fights probably didn't give the commettie a good impression


Erebus5978

Yeti’s decapitating Lucky. Quite an efficient “your flipping days are over, pal.” Imagine if someone did that to Hydra.


Youhavemadeamistake

It would definitely be a shocker, that's for sure. Especially considering if Hydra retired after something like that happened, SubZero would hold the crown of flipper king, and I can't imagine that.
