Biohazard Inaugural class

Biohazard robot
Unanimous Selection

The six-time heavyweight champion set the high water mark for longevity and top-notch design. Carlo Bertocchini's low, all electric lifter remains the most successful robot in history with six championships, twenty-seven wins, and three losses. This 'bot gets my vote to set right in the entrance to the Hall of Fame. Biohazard Website

Bite Force Inducted 2019

Bite Force robot
Paul Ventimiglia has been building fearsome combat robots for years, but few expected his entries in the BattleBots reboot to so effectively dominate the competition. Winning three championships in four attempts while incurring only a single loss in 24 fights places 'Bite Force' at the apex of the 250-pound class. Aptyx Designs on Facebook

Blendo Inaugural class

Blendo robot
The first of the gas-powered spinners, and the first 'bot to be judged too dangerous to compete. The design has been copied by countless imitators, who have learned that there is more to building a good spinner than just getting the thing to spin. James Hyneman was declared heavyweight co-champion of the 1995 Robot Wars. Blendo Website (archived)

Carbide Inducted 2017

Carbide robot
The vanguard of the new and fearsome UK spinners, 'Carbide' was a terror in the 2016 Robot Wars reboot and came back stronger and more durable to walk thru the field for victory in 2017. Experienced and successful roboteers Dave Moulds and Sam Smith joined forces to become the new UK superteam. Carbide on Facebook

Cassius Inducted 2017

Cassius robot
A true Robot Wars design paradigm, Rex Garrod's innovative pneumatic flipper weapon doubled as a SRIMECH. The audience was stunned by the unexpected when it to became the first British combat robot to self-right (Robot Wars 1998). Cassius Website (archived)

Chaos 2 Inaugural class

Chaos 2 robot
First flipper to put a 'bot out of the arena. Two-time Robot Wars heavyweight champion with more match wins there than anyone else (19). There are other great British flippers, but if I have to pick one I'll pick Chaos 2. As a plus, driver George Francis is a very nice guy! Chaos 2 Website

Complete Control Inaugural class

Complete Control robot
This middleweight was the first 'bot that could effectively and reliably clamp its opponent, lift it off the ground, and parade around the arena waving it in the air. What could be more humiliating? Kudos to Derek Young. Complete Control Website (archived)

Diesector Inaugural class

Diesector robot
Unanimous Selection

A two-time BattleBots super-heavyweight champion with sixteen wins and only three losses, this 'bot was all action. Independent hydraulic clamping/lifting jaws, dual independent side-mounted 'battle mallet' hammers, and enormous power. Donald Hutson drove it well and made it do a great victory dance. Diesector Website

Dr. Inferno Jr. Inaugural class

Dr. Inferno Jr. robot
Now, that looks like a robot! It won championships, too. Jason Dante Bardis combined a whole lot of power with exotic materials in a lightweight package to make a 'bot with a unique balance of style and performance. Two BattleBots lightweight championships, 12 wins, 3 losses. Infernolab Website

Explosion Inducted 2013

Explosion robot
At the time of induction, Team Invade's dominating UK featherweight flipper was the UK champion and may have set the mark as the most successful UK featherweight in UK history. The full-pressure flipper pioneered Hardox steel armor in the featherweight class. Team Invade website

Eruption Inducted 2021

Eruption robot
This heavyweight version of Team Invade's featherweight full-pressure flipper 'Explosion' racked up a staggering list of championships between 2013 and 2018 - capped by a win in the Robot Wars Series 10 Grand Final. The robot's acrobatic combat style made it a huge fan favorite. Eruption Twitter Feed

Hazard Inaugural class

Hazard robot
Unanimous Selection

Master of the spinning blade. The design was simple and the results were deadly. Tony Buchignani knew his metallurgy and physics, and created the most feared and successful 'bot in its class with three middleweight championships, seventeen wins, and only one loss! Hazard Website (archived)

Huge / HUGE! Inducted 2023

HUGE! robot
Team HUGE didn't pioneer giant (40") flexible plastic wheels in combat robotics, but they did add the coaxial spinner blade that perfected the concept as a featherweight and scaled up to break the combat paradigm in the heavyweight class. Team HUGE website

Hypno-Disc Inaugural class

Hypno-Disc Robot
The British didn't embrace the full-body spinner layout in the early Robot Wars years, but David Rose's heavyweight disc-spinner took a different approach to big kinetic energy destruction. With three consecutive Grand Final appearances and twenty-two combat victories, the appealing mix of drivability and destruction inspired many imitators. Hypno-Disc Website

Iron-Awe 5 Inducted 2009

Iron Awe 5 Robot
The 2008 UK heavyweight champion does not just dominate other robots, it removes them from the arena. In its first year of competition it flipped 33 robots out of the arena - five in a single match (twice)! Add to that a 19 match winning streak starting in 2007 and you have a true hall of fame robot. Team Iron Awe Website (archived)

KillerHurtz Inaugural class

KillerHurtz Robot
An icon at both Robot Wars (2nd thru 4th Wars) and BattleBots (Seasons 1 thru 4, 1999 Long Beach, 1999 Las Vegas) this polycarbonate uni-body wonder achieved success on both sides of the Atlantic. John Reid's sophisticated control systems and a powerful pneumatic overhead axe made for a dangerous package. Team Hurtz Website

La Machine Inaugural class

La Machine Robot
The original wedge! Greg Munson's superstar performer won the 1995 US Robot Wars middleweight crown, and stunned the crowd by going on to win both the middleweight and heavyweight class rumbles that year. A true icon of the sport. La Machine Website (archived)

Last Rites / Tombstone Inducted 2009

Last Rites Robot
Ray Billings has a simple approach to building robots - build a giant weapon and attach a tough drivetrain to shove it at your opponent. Brute Force has no better friend. Motto: "Strategy is for those guys without weapons." When one of Ray's robots fires up, EVERYBODY heads for the stands to watch. Tombstone's BattleBots title in 2016 was just the cherry on top of the cake. Hardcore Robotics Website

Mauler Inaugural class

Mauler Robot
The first 'Tuna Can' spinner was nearly as dangerous to itself as to its opponents. The various incarnations of Mauler were always entertaining, as was the Tilford clan that built them. When the heavyweight spinner demonstrated the physics of the 'tippy-top' and flipped itself onto its back in a moment of supreme instability it coined a term forever known as 'doing a Mauler'. Six wins, seven losses, and an uncountable number of imitators. Mauler Website (archived)

Mechadon Inaugural class

Mechadon Robot
It only had two match wins, but that makes no difference. What it lacked in fighting ability, it more than made up for in coolness. This 480 pound, six-legged superheavyweight wonder was a true walker, with independent multi-axis control of each leg. How did Mark Setrakian operate this thing? Team Sinister Mechadon Demo.

Megabyte Inducted 2005

Megabyte Robot
The only single 'bot to win championships in two weight classes, Robotic Death Company's heavyweight spinner competed and won against both heavy and superheavyweight 'bots. Overall record: 49 wins, 19 losses, and 1 national championship. Robotic Death Company website

Minion Inaugural class

Minion Robot
Competing in every BattleBots super-heavyweight event ever staged, this 'bot was fast, controllable, and capable of thunderous ramming attacks. Christian Carlberg raised the bar in the super-heavyweight class with this bot: twelve wins, four losses, and back-to-back championships. Minion Website (archived)

Nightmare Inaugural class

Nightmare Robot
King of the heavyweight vertical spinners, this four-foot diameter weapon on wheels was the poster boy for destruction. The first 'bot capable of throwing pieces of its opponent up and out of the arena, Jim Smentowski forced event organizers to put a roof on the containment box. Competed in nine BattleBots events and has been reincarnated as a ShowBot for the live BattleBots: Destruct-A-Thon show in Las Vegas. Nightmare Website

Original Sin Inducted 2015

Original Sin Robot
Possibly the toughest heavyweight ever built. Team Late Night Racing believes that the way to win is to hurl their robot at you until you break. An unmatched heavyweight record of 64 wins and 15 losses, seven RoboGames titles, and four ComBots Cup championships say they are correct! [No Website Available]

Overkill Inaugural class

Overkill Robot
It's all about the blade, dude. The huge heat-treated 4130 steel blade is a real eye-catcher. Maybe the best of the show-off bots, Christian Carlberg's heavyweight Overkill looked great and performed at the highest level. Overkill has been reincarnated as a ShowBot for the live BattleBots: Destruct-A-Thon show in Las Vegas. Overkill Website (archived)

Panic Attack Inaugural class

Panic Attack Robot
Looking like a piece of construction equipment and painted to send a strong 'keep away' message, Kim Davies' durable and strong lifter was a tough opponent. A Robot Wars champion and BattleBots heavyweight competitor, this Welsh 'bot surprised me with its strong showing in the voting. Panic Attack Website (archived)

Panzer / Wrath Inaugural class

Panzer Robot
Todd Mendenhall's 'Panzer' is the only robot to win two different televised competitions. The adaptable six-wheel drive platform won the third season of Robotica, dominated the second Robot Wars Extreme Warriors tournament, and (as 'Wrath') had a 75% match win record at BattleBots. Versatile, powerful, and fast, the 'bot is difficult to match at any aspect of combat. [No website available]

Professor Chaos Inducted 2011

Professor Chaos Robot
The middleweight terror from WPI Combat Robotics ruled the middleweight class in the U.S. since its first tournament in 2008 'til its retirement in 2010. It pummeled the top robots in the division and pioneered single-tooth spinner dominance. Record: 14 wins / 2 losses. WPI Robotics website

Razer Inaugural class

Razer robot
Unanimous Selection

Two-time Robot Wars world heavyweight champion and a real work of art. Ian Lewis and company built the first successful hydraulic crusher-bot on the planet. Razer at Robot Wars Website

Rust In Peace Inducted 2015

Rust In Peace Robot
Dominating success in combat? How about 45 wins, 2 losses, and 12 tournament victories! This 60 kg drum robot pulled Indian combat robotics onto the world stage.

Sewer Snake's record: 77 wins, 30 losses. Team Plumb Crazy Website

Silent Spring Inducted 2019

Silent Spring Robot
Jamison Go's dominant US beetleweight has terrorized the class since its first tournament win in 2015. The first beetleweight in the Hall rides in on an 18 win / three championship undefeated streak. Copies of its big water-cut, single tooth, 4130 steel disk abound but this is the original. G3 Robotics Website

Son of Whyachi Inaugural class

Son of Whyachi Robot
If brute force doesn't work, it's because you're not using enough of it! Terry Ewert packed a really big punch with this monster spinner that combined a rule-shaving 'shufflebot' propulsion system with huge power and great craftsmanship. Also gets a point for being rendered ineligible to defend its heavyweight title due to rule changes it precipitated. Team Whyachi Website

Tazbot Inaugural class

Tazbot Robot
Donald Hutson builds cool 'bots. I think that if I had my choice of 'bots to drive in a tournament just for fun, I'd pick heavyweight Tazbot. The rotating turret with lifter adds an extra degree of movement and excitement. Miniature replicas of Tazbot were the most popular of the BattleBots toys. Tazbot has been reincarnated as a ShowBot for the live BattleBots: Destruct-A-Thon show in Las Vegas. Tazbot Website

TerrorHurtz Inducted 2009

TerrorHurtz Robot
The 2004 Roaming Robots champion and 6th Wars semi-finalist carried the most powerful overhead axe in the UK: 900kg of force and 2300 joules of energy. Top notch design and workmanship made John Reid's 'bot a favorite with builders and the audience. This 2007 Honorable Mention winner achieved full Hall of Fame membership in 2009. Team Hurtz website

The Judge Inducted 2005

The Judge Robot
You just had to be there! When the giant overhead hammer came down, the whole building shook and the crowd shouted "GUILTY!"

Tornado Inaugural class

Tornado Robot
Innovative Sixth Robot Wars champion. Andrew Marchant's brutal rambot once claimed to have the most power of any combat 'bot on the planet. Their rivalry with 'Razer' and controversy over their 'anti-crusher web' alone would qualify them for this Hall of Fame. Tornado Website

Toro Inaugural class

Toro Robot
Alex Rose took the combat game into the air! This 'bot stunned the robot community when it first rolled out and started throwing its super-heavyweight opponents end-over-end through the air. Winner of the championship and back-to-back rumbles. Simply awesome! Inertia Labs Website (archived)

Vertical Disc of Destruction Inducted 2005

VDD robot - kit version
The first insect-class 'bot inducted into the hall, Ted Shimoda's VDD brought the power of the vertical disc spinner to the antweight world in a big way. The current incarnation features a revolutionary kevlar-wrapped carbon fiber rod spaceframe chassis. Team Think Tank Website (archived)

Vlad the Impaler Inaugural class

Vlad the Impaler robot
Unanimous Selection

Chunky and powerful, this two-time heavyweight champion by Gage Cauchois pioneered the pneumatic lifter as an effective weapon and was the first immobilized robot to self-right in competition (1997 U.S. Robot Wars). Record: 16 wins, three losses. Vlad the Impaler Website (archived)

Voltronic / Voltarc Inaugural class

Voltronic Robot
The sleek wedge/lifter was a three-time BattleBots heavyweight finalist and an icon of the Comedy Central years.

Ziggo Inaugural class

Ziggo robot
Unanimous Selection

The lightweight ultra spinner. Eighteen wins, sixteen knockouts, three lightweight championships. Jonathan Ridder understood the physics of the spinner better than anyone else. Woof! Team Ziggy Website (archived)

Member Count by Weight Class

Special Member: Deadblow Honorary

Deadblow robot

Combat robotics lost one of its most prominent faces in 2020. Grant Imahara first entered the public eye as a BattleBots competitor with his middleweight robot 'Deadblow' -- competing in the inaugural 1999 Long Beach tournament and all five seasons of the televised BattleBots series on Comedy Central. Together they won 'giant nut' trophies for rumble wins at Long Beach and Season 2.0, and for a runner up tournament finish at Season 1.0 behind Hall of Fame member 'Hazard'.

Grant will be remembered for his bright personality and achievements in many fields, but please also remember that he built and operated a fine combat robot. He will be greatly missed in the combat robot community.

Honorable Mention

Robots on the Honorable Mention Roll appeared on at least 25% of the ballots in the year of their induction. They are eligible for promotion to full membership on future ballots.

Honorable Mention 2023

Droopy - This unique NHRL beetle is a torque-reaction shuffle-walker powered by twin bar spinners. Everybody likes weird stuff that wins, and Droopy has an 85% win rate!

Hydra - BattleBots hydraulic launcher. Works well. Consistent. May eventually win something.

Lynx - The most sucessful combat robot ever? Lynx has entered seven beetleweight tournaments in the hyper-competitive NHRL series and won five! That deserves recognition.

SawBlaze and MegatRON - Heavyweight hammer-saw SawBlaze has improved year-over-year thru six BattleBots tournaments to finally win the WCVII tournament in 2023. The team honed the design in featherweight MegatRON, which has been independently voted an Honorable Mention.

Honorable Mention 2021

End Game - The 2020 Battlebots champion from New Zealand's team OYES Robotics gets some respect. Another strong run should get it more.

Nuts 2 - This simple, unlikely, flailing thwackbot went on an improbable streak in the 10th Robot Wars to land in third place. Everybody loves an underdog.

Shredit Bro - The two-time NHRL beetleweight tournament winner has proven that off-the-shelf components can be the basis of a terrifying competitor.

Whiplash - Three for three winning Battlebots tournament records, three times defeated by the eventual champion. Soon, Whiplash... Soon.

Witch Doctor - Who has more exciting fights at Battlebots? The votes say "nobody". Team Witch Doctor's great outreach to fans and new competitors helps.

Honorable Mention 2019

Spectre / Quantum - The hydraulic crusher had been written off as a viable combat robot weapon years ago. Team Robo Challenge's success in China clearly demonstrates that the crusher is back!

Honorable Mention 2017

ßeta - Team Hurtz wins the persistence award. Built for the original BattleBots, 'ßeta' was unable to compete due to unexpected arena conditions. ßeta returned 13 years later for the reboot but lost critical parts in shipping. In 2016 the stars aligned and 'ßeta' was able to demonstrate the mighty electric hammer, gaining fans worldwide!

Honorable Mention 2015

Tetanus / Triggo - Team Brain Damage owns the featherweight class in the northeast US. Full-body spinner 'Tetanus' went 21-2 with five titles before being updated with a stronger shell, renamed 'Triggo', and adding on a 20-6 record and three more titles to date.

Touro Maximus / Minotaur - With a heavyweight title at RoboGames plus a BattleBots finals appearance, the aggressive drum spinners from Brazilian Team RioBotz have been making an impact on combat robotics since 2006. The team's well documented academic approach to robot design has influenced builders world-wide.

Weta, God of Ugly Things - Not only does Team Rolling Thunder's beetleweight drumbot have a 65% win record with multiple titles, but the kits they have made and sold based on the design have won their own strings of tournaments. Are the kits 'too good'? Some builders say 'yes'.

Honorable Mention 2013

Upheaval - Team Mad Scientist's flipper totally owns the NERC featherweight sportsman class. This top ranked featherweight sportsman has won the Motorama Robot Conflict five years running. Since the start of 2009, the 'bot has run up an astounding 24 win / 1 loss record at that event.

Ziggy - In the twilight years of the superheavyweight combat class, one robot gained near-complete dominance. 'Ziggy' ran up a remarkable 11 match win streak at the premiere RoboGames event from 2006 thru 2010 to establish an unmatched five-year undefeated record at the tournament. CM Robotics' pneumatic 4-bar flipper tosses robots like ragdolls and can even punt a football more than 60 yards.

Honorable Mention 2011

Anticide - The dominant UK antweight, Andrew Hibberd's tiny flipper claims to be the most successful ant of all time. The chassis was made on a 3-D 'printer'. Successes include three consecutive Antweight Fighting Robot World Series wins.

Gyrobot - This odd antweight has no wheels, legs, or treads. It moves by inducing a gyroscopic reaction in its vertical spinning blade to tilt the robot from side to side and rotate by precession! Builders love strange designs.

Kronic - A full-pressure heavyweight flipper from the UK with a long record of success: 2005 Roaming Robots champion, 2006 International Challenge winner, 2010 Team Bud Challenge champion, and Fighting Robots Annihilator champion for 2010 and 2011.

Warrior SKF - Another oddball design beloved by builders. This Team Whyachi heavyweight flipper is powered by energy stored in a horizontal spinning ring. It's an interesting alternative to pneumatic flipper power, but hard on the flipper clutch!

Honorable Mention 2009

Envy - Team Bud is the heart and soul of the UK Roaming Robots and their formidable full-pressure front-hinge flipper dominated the 2008 season. Three-time Fighting Robots UK Championship Finalist

Totally Offensive - Team Mad Overlord has refined the featherweight bar spinner to an art form. The 2004 and 2005 RFL national champion has a lifetime 47 win 19 loss record.

Honorable Mention 2007

Big Nipper - A robust horizontal crusher/vertical lifter weapon mated to a heavily armored 4WD chassis gives Graeme Dawson's Robot Wars veteran the staying power needed to be a consistent winner on the UK robot circuit.

CycloneBot - In spite of a competition score next to last in BotRank historic list, Michael Worry's full-body spinner remains a crowd favorite with 'melty brain' cyclone propulsion and a real-time 'tauntware' display that insults their opponent while rotating at full speed. Record: 11 wins, 20 losses.

Gravity - Arguably the most powerful flipper ever seen at Robot Wars, this Dutch champion became the model for a new generation of monster flippers in Europe. W. J. Dijkstra's team claims 4 to 5 tons of lifting force, enough to toss house robots like toys.

Storm 2 - The 2004 Robot Wars world champion and 7th Wars runner-up has unbeatable speed and ramming power. Team Captain Ed Hoppitt liked the Robot Wars arena so much that he bought it!

Honorable Mention 2005

3pd - The first beetleweight mentioned in the hall. The drum weapon Andrew Peterson put together is in perfect balance with the chassis and drive system. Record: 48 wins, 21 losses.

Dark Pounder - A pioneer in the era of magnet-bots back when steel arena floors were popular, Russ Barrow's antweight still maintains the best ant competition score on record: 77 wins, 12 losses.

Max Wedge - The first 'bot to score back-to-back RFL National championships. Mike Phillips has demonstrated the reliability and power of his dominating middleweight. Record: 39 wins, 8 losses.

Solaris - The first hobbyweight 'bot to be mentioned in the hall. Pete Covert kept refining Solaris until the powerful drum weapon was feared across the nation. Record: 42 wins, 12 losses.

Honorable Mention 2003

Backlash - Nightmare's little sibling carves out its own space in the Hall of Fame. The lightweight vertical spinner was the champion of BattleBots season 1.0 and was runner-up in season 2.0. It appeared in all five televised seasons of BattleBots and has a record of 13 wins and 4 losses.

Bigger Brother / Little Sister - Ian Watts scores points for the cute kids and effective high-pressure pneumatic flipper. Effective competitor at both Robot Wars (12 wins) and BattleBots (4 wins). Does a great victory dance, too.

Blade Runner - The overall record of 5 wins and 5 losses isn’t spectacular, but Ilya Polyakov elevated the lowly ‘twackbot’ layout by implementing the ‘MeltyBrain’ technology that allows simultaneous spinning and controlled movement. Technological breakthrough! Appeared in all five televised seasons of BattleBots.

Firestorm - Quirky active differential steering and reverse-angle pneumatic flipper make the 'bot fast, stable, and dangerous. The only 'bot to ever topple the gargantuan Mr. Psycho! Graham Bone added refinements on each new version of this innovative Robot Wars competitor.

frenZy - There has never been a wackier or more animated 'bot than frenZy. Pioneer of the overhead electric pickaxe, frenZy spends as much time in the air as on the ground. Patrick Campbell stays calm and collected while his machine goes completely nuts. It should have its own cartoon show.

JuggerBot / Tricerabot - Mike Morrow's Team JuggerBot made the final fight at Robotica - twice! They made the final fight at Robot Wars Extreme Warriors, and were the only 'bot to ever put 'Sir Killalot' into The Pit. They competed as a superheavyweight at BattleBots 3.0 only to lose a close decision to the eventual champion. If you can beat these guys, you're doing everything right.

Mortis - A tough and versatile competitor from the early UK Robot Wars, Arthur Chilcott's Mortis remains a favorite amongst robot fans. The combination of lifting arm and overhead spike gave Mortis great flexibility and staying power.

Son of Smashy - A second Canadian ‘bot by Derek Young scores a piece of the fame pie. The middleweight features a pre-wound spring powered axe that is reset by electric winch during the match. Son of Smashy went 5 and 0 to win the 1999 BattleBots event in Long Beach.

Spiny Norman - The little 'bot that simply would not die in the '94 Robot Wars melee. The '94 melee was the first and only time that 'bots from all weight classes were pitted together. The crowd went completely ape cheering for Will Wright's indestructible marvel as it survived repeated attacks from 'bots 8 times its weight.

T-Minus - The smaller version of super-heavyweight champion Toro, middleweight T-Minus packed a huge full-pressure pneumatic flipper into a compact package. Class champion in BattleBots 5.0 – overall record 14 wins, 2 losses.

Vladiator - Super-heavyweight ‘bots were generally big, lumbering juggernauts until Gage Cauchois mated big Lynch motors into a titanium shell and put serious speed and power into the class. Vladiator bounces around the arena like a giant pinball with attitude. Class champion in BattleBots 3.0, second in 5.0, champion Mechwars 10 – overall record 18 wins, 5 losses.

Warhead - Who says the Brits can’t build spinners? The Razer team put together the most frightening internal combustion powered heavyweight weapon ever seen at BattleBots. The display of gyroscopic forces alone was awesome. Record: 5 wins, 1 loss.
