* On that note, Crackers 'n' Smash cannot go unmentioned here. At one point they deliberately went into the arena ''with their weapons removed'' to play defensively, and it worked. Not to mention, their robots were ''unbelievably'' tanky, and get a [=CMoA=] for being the only robots in Carbide's heat to survive going into the arena with it - ''twice'' - despite being half the size of the other competitors.

* Carbide shredding its way through its entire Series 9 heat ([[spoiler:and beating Apollo ''twice'']]) was impressive enough, but its battle against Crackers 'n' Smash was the highlight. It hit one half of the clusterbot so hard it span across the ''entire length of the arena'', smashed a wall panel off, and then ricocheted a good five feet into the air! Even more incredible: said clusterbot was ''completely unscathed''! Crackers 'n' Smash were ''unbelievably'' tanky, and get a [=CMoA=] all of their own for being the only robots in Carbide's heat to survive going into the arena with it - ''twice'' - despite being half the size of the other competitors.

* Concussion utterly curbstomping Heavy Metal by outflanking them and ripping off one of their wheels, [[TemptingFate only seconds after the latter assumed they'd be able to run rings around the newcomer]]
* Pulsar, Ironside 3 and Supernova taking mere seconds to demolish the two elimination rounds in their between them (with Pulsar and Ironside teaming up in one, and Supernova crippling all of its opponents single-handedly in the other), cementing all three machines as serious competitors in an instant.

** In the same episode, Shunt gets one for pinning [=PP3D=] against the wall until it ''set itself on fire'' from the shock reflecting back into it in its fight against Behemoth. [[NoSell And Shunt didn't even budge.]]

* Pulsar and Ironside 3 took mere seconds to demolish an elimination round between them, cementing them both as serious competitors in an instant.
* Pulsar vs Supernova was literally a SingleStrokeBattle, with Pulsar ramming Supernova head on with enough force to hurl them the length of the arena, and leave them damaged enough that they barely managed to get repaired in time for the next fight.

* Before the battles commenced Heat E's Gabriel looked like something of a joke, a gangly thwackbot with plastic armour and two huge vulnerable wheels just begging to be torn off by rival spinners. When it actually fought however it dominated all but one of its opponents during the melee and round robin, none of which could even attack it effectively due to its odd shape, clever tactics and excellent driving. Its rubbery plastic wheels proved nearly impossible to damage, no-selling even the powerful spinning weapons mounted by Pulsar and Ironside III. How successful was it? It got all the way to the episode final, and ''never'' lost by knockout.

** On a related note, Cherub's handling and control was invariably spectacular, particularly considering the age of the driver. They basically managed to fight on even terms with everyone else simply by outmaneuvering them at every turn.

* In case you were under the impression that the House Robots were "theatrical robots" intended to look intimidating but not really do any actual damage, in the lead-up to Series 9 the BBC released [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04thjt6 promotional trailer]] where Sir Killalot, Shunt and Matilda take out their anger on a parked car. While just ''seeing'' the House Robots approach the car is intimidating enough (a lot of people don't realise how ''big'' the House Robots are at first glance), the destructive highlights include Matilda smashing her flywheel into the side of the car so violently that the entire vehicle lurches sideways, and Killalot driving his claw in through the sundered bonnet, then ripping out and casually discarding ''practically the entire engine block!''

* PP3D managing to send Cherub ''through the arena sidewall'' with its powerful flywheel. And a moment of awesome for Cherub for somehow surviving this with minimal damage!
** In the same episode, Shunt gets one for pinning PP3D against the wall until it ''set itself on fire'' from the shock reflecting back into it. [[NoSell And Shunt didn't even budge.]]

** In the same episode, Matilda gets one by inflicting a particularly impressive OneHitKill on fan-favourite Nuts 2. How? By hitting it with her flywheel so hard that she outright ''sends it flying'', [[RingOut causing it to land outside of the arena]] and send Jonathan Pearce into one his trademark [[TheHyena laughing fits]].
