* The penultimate group of the reboot series, Heat D, was a pretty hotly contested affair, with all 4 robots (Storm 2, Eruption, Apollo and PP3D) giving a good account of themselves, getting at least one win each.

* Some moments for Storm 2 as well; while far from the terror it used to be (see TheWorfEffect on its character sheet entry), they got some measure of payback for the ExecutiveMeddling from Series 7 when they bashed up and pitted spinnerbot PP3D, captained by the driver of [[ArchEnemy Typhoon 2]].

** Apollo dominating TR2, consistently out-driving them and flipping them over and over until TR2 ran out of CO2 and could not self-right - karmic, considering that strategy is what TR2 employed against Dantomkia in the heats.
** TR2 disabling Carbide's lethal spinning bar by deliberately ramming into it, then repeatedly manhandling it into Shunt. The match lasted the whole three minutes, with the judges ruling unanimously in TR2's favour.

** The grand final between Carbide and Apollo was the most intense match of the series. Carbide's blade dealt terrible damage to Apollo's bodywork, only for the latter to copy TR2's earlier success and break said blade with their heavily armoured prow. By the time the three minutes were up both bots were limping, their primary weapons broken, but Apollo's mighty flipper carried them to victory.

* From the Series 3 Grand Final we have (again!) Chaos 2. After defeating Hypno-Disc, it tried to keep the house robots away from its defeated opponent, and when Matilda and Shunt ganged up against it they got flipped over with ease. And Chaos 2 probably could have gotten more if cease hadn't been called. That little black flipper was ''mean''.

** And when Chaos 2 won the 4th Wars, becoming the ONLY robot ever to retain the championship (or even win it more than once).
** In the Sixth Wars, newcomer Dantomkia received a Crowning Moment of Awesome by flipping ''Chaos 2'' out of the arena!
*** ...and in the Seventh Wars, Gravity flipped Dantomkia out in roughly SIX SECONDS, setting the record for the shortest battle ever. And the kicker? The previous holder of the "quickest battle" record was also Dantomkia, in its previous fight no less, who took out IG-88 in 8 seconds. Glorious.

** Chaos 2's victory over Hypno-Disc in the Series 3 Grand Final wasn't the greatest of fights, as Hypno-Disc was limping the whole time and was defeated by a OneHitKill, but what happened afterwards cemented Chaos 2's reputation. As Dead Metal came in to finish off Hypno-Disc, Chaos 2 went after Matilda and flipped her over with ease. Then Chaos 2 went after Shunt... ''who proceeded to run away''. Not that that was enough to save it. You know a machine has become TheDreaded when even the ''House Robots'' fear it.
--->'''Jonathan Pearce:''' Shunt... trying to get ''away'' from Chaos 2, and why not! The champions want to beat everyone! Taking on Shunt, and flipping Shunt over! So that's ''two'' of the House Robots done!
** And when then Chaos 2 won the 4th Wars, Series 4, becoming the ONLY only robot ever ''ever'' to retain the televised championship (or even win it more than once).

-->'''Jonathan Pearce:''' On cue, the second of our Semi-Final battles. Dantomkia- ''[Cut off by Gravity immediately punting Dantomkia over the wall]'' [[TheHyena HA HA HA!]] [[LargeHam OVER AND OUT! SIMPLE AS THAT!]]

* Hypnodisc became officially awesome after it [[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=EhKB0bzmvb4 ripped its opponent into teeny tiny pieces]]. Ironically enough, the opposing robot was named Splinter.
** That was in the Fourth Wars. Hypno Disc was officially awesome a long time before that- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w04BgclPmY8 from their debut, no less.]]
* While it may not be as universally liked, the fight between [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFVa5iPnQI8 Bigger Brother and Hypnodisc]] shows the former getting ripped apart and ''still winning''. Even Jonathan Pearce was going through its death speech before they managed it. The show's wiki later voted it the greatest battle in Robot Wars history.

* Hypnodisc became officially Hypnodisc's two defining Crowning Moments of awesome after it [[http://uk.were its {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s against Robogeddon and Splinter.
** The former was [[http://www.
youtube.com/watch?v=EhKB0bzmvb4 com/watch?v=w04BgclPmY8 one of the most impressive debuts in the show's history]], as Hypno-Disc tore Robogeddon to shreds with unprecedented brutality, [[GameChanger proving both the power of heavy spinning weapons and the necessity of strong armour]]. Incidentally, Robogeddon arguably gets a [=CMoA=] itself because despite the horrific damage it took, having its armour ripped its opponent into teeny tiny pieces]]. Ironically enough, away piece by piece, it was ''still working'' by the opposing robot was named Splinter.
** That was in the Fourth Wars. Hypno Disc was officially awesome a long
time before that- [[http://www."Cease" was called; its wheels were still spinning, even though they'd been mangled to the point of uselessness.
** The latter is unquestionably [[http://uk.
youtube.com/watch?v=w04BgclPmY8 com/watch?v=EhKB0bzmvb4 the most brutal curb-stomp battle in the show's history]], with Hypno-Disc recovering from their debut, no less.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The 2016 Grand Final was a worthy successor to those of the original series, with nearly every battle having some kind of spectacle. To wit:
** Carbide continuing its trail of destruction, shredding wildcard-winner Thor and disabling Apollo with a single blow during the round robin.
** Apollo dominating TR2, consistently out-driving them and flipping them over and over until TR2 ran out of CO2 and could not self-right - karmic, considering that strategy is what TR2 employed against Dantomkia in the heats.
** TR2 disabling Carbide's lethal spinning bar by deliberately ramming into it, then repeatedly manhandling it into Shunt. The match lasted the whole three minutes, with the judges ruling unanimously in TR2's favour.
** While it struggled enormously, Thor deserves credit for its sheer tenacity. Despite repeatedly enduring brutal beatdowns from the other competitors and being reduced to effectively a zombie made of other machine's parts, the venerable hammerbot did not withdraw and kept fighting even when it became clear how outclassed it was.
** The grand final between Carbide and Apollo was the most intense match of the series. Carbide's blade dealt terrible damage to Apollo's bodywork, only for the latter to copy TR2's earlier success and break said blade with their heavily armoured prow. By the time the three minutes were up both bots were limping, their primary weapons broken, but Apollo's mighty flipper carried them to victory.

* 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 of 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? In the entire epsiode, it ''never'' lost by knockout.

* On that note, the battles between Storm 2 and Apollo are some of the most spectacular of the new series. Storm 2 made an impressive showing, taking out their drive chain, and nearly pitting Apollo, while Apollo themselves stood out for evading the pit at the last second by driving right ''over'' Storm 2. Not to mention, ''flipping Dead Metal'', and then doing the same to Matilda when she came to help. Not to mention toppling Shunt in the final round.

** Newcomers Carbide managing to win two out of three battles in the Second Round, despite being taken to the Judges by Terrorhurtz in the first battle. It's second battle against Nuts was, to put it lightly, '''''brutal.''''' It destroyed the protective ring surrounding Nuts (which also held its flails, rendering its offence null and void) and threw a shard of said ring up against the Control Booth, thankfully made out of bulletproof glass. It then proceeded to wreck Nuts' wheels, even tearing one off at one point and buckling the other.
