* Velocirippa may often be considered one of the greatest {{butt monkey}}s of ''Robot Wars,'' never winning a battle[[note]]of course their ''other'' robots, Mighty Mouse and Ironside 3, were a different matter[[/note]] but it did at least make an ''awesome'' first impression- the robot has a single win registered on its wiki page, not for a battle, but for the Robotic Soccer qualifier round it won against Demolition Demon 2. Robotic Soccer was often an awkward, clumsy affair where the ball would get stuck and would sometimes only end up in the net by sheer accident, but after a cagey start Velocirippa waited for their chance, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs_4Kzle1Ro&t=2m15s then when Matilda knocked the ball back into the centre of the arena they RUSHED in, scooped it up with pinpoint precision and drove it straight into the net!]] Soccer is often called UsefulNotes/TheBeautifulGame, and this was a truly ''beautiful'' goal, a stunning display of razor-sharp driving and timing.
* Cassius's predecessor Recyclopse's Crowning Moment of Awesome occurred when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8LgUQCnvSU&t=7m8s it flipped over Matilda]], the first 'House Robot Kill' of the series (also consider that Recyclopse was unable to move at the time). Cassius would later [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYhpuzj_Dsk&t=6m49s repeat this feat]].
* The first Crowning Moment for Chaos 2 (it had ''quite'' a few) was in Series 3 when it became the first robot to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOojWy6Lta4 launch another out of the ring]].
** 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.

* Panic Attack received several during its run to the title:
** 1 - During its Gauntlet run it was going over the see-saw ramp, but Dead Metal was underneath it and Sir Killalot was coming up from behind, both preventing the ramp from going down. What does Panic Attack do? Try to jump off the ramp and over Dead Metal (it didn't work, but still...)
** 2 - Knocking Shunt off the Sumo ring in the Trials (this was vengeance for Panic Attack, as its ramp-jumping antics in the Gauntlet had ended with Shunt punching numerous holes in it).
** 3 - Knocking out Sgt Bash's saw while fighting Whirling Dervish.
** 4 - Defeating Mortis during the series semi-finals by pushing it into the pit.
** 5 - Defeating series favourite Cassius in the Grand Final by pushing in into the pit as well (and earlier in the fight driving right over the top of Cassius) and becoming the grand champion of the Second Wars.
* The Plunderbird team introduced themselves and their robot, Plunderbird 2, with [[SugarWiki/CrowningMusicOfAwesome their own]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfN4NLq-3Eo theme song]]! Even better, they were able to take out both Dead Metal and Sergeant Bash in under a minute in the King of the Castle Trial for their heat, and got to the Semi-Finals despite normally being considered [[JokeCharacter less-than-serious competitors]].

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''.

** And then Chaos 2 won Series 4, becoming the only robot ''ever'' to retain the televised championship (or even win it more than once).[[note]]After the show went off-air, Terrorhurtz, Iron-Awe 5, Big Nipper and Eruption all won two FRA championships, with Eruption winning its two consecutively[[/note]]
** In Series 6, newcomer Dantomkia achieved 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.
*** The entire commentary of that fight, from "Activate" to "Cease":
---->'''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!]]
** The Series 7 incarnation of X-Terminator and the American Cyclone Raptor, whose flywheels were so powerful that they could spin opponents right out of the arena. Both managed to do so twice.
* Hypnodisc's two defining Crowning Moments of Awesome were its {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s against Robogeddon and Splinter in the 3rd and 4th Wars respectively.
** The former was [[http://www.youtube.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 away piece by piece, it was ''still working'' by the time "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=EhKB0bzmvb4 the most brutal curb-stomp battle in the show's history]], with Hypno-Disc recovering from an early scare and turning Splinter into... well, splinters.
* While it may not be as universally liked, the fight between [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olR2--vUJts&list=PL18605D3D405D6289&index=57#t=9m17s Bigger Brother and Hypno-Disc]] 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.
* Yet ''another'' awesome performance from Hypno-Disc (it had quite a few) came in its Extreme 1 Mayhem battle against Wheely Big Cheese and Ming 3. Hypno-Disc usually struggled against multiple opponents (as it did in the following Annihilator), but on this occasion it was utterly dominant, running rings around its two opponents. Wheely Big Cheese ended up with several massive gashes in its armour and one of its wheels hanging off, while Ming 3 ended up with ''[[FreeWheel no wheels whatsoever]]''.
* Wheely Big Cheese's flipper was often touted as the most powerful ever seen, but only once did it truly live up to its potential: in its Series 5 battle against Axe Awe. In a single flip, Axe Awe was, to quote Jonathan Pearce, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cvVYzvQQB4&t=2m40s "flipped right out of the Robot Wars galaxy"!]] It was undoubtedly the biggest flip in the history of the show, and probably one of the biggest flips ''ever''.
** The predecessor to Wheely Big Cheese, The Big Cheese, may have been OvershadowedByAwesome due to only reaching a heat final in its only appearance, but you shouldn't forget that the only reason it never got as far as Wheely Big Cheese was because its heat final opponent was ''Chaos 2.'' The clash of these two titans was unquestionably ''the'' best battle in all of Series 3 (and was officially voted as such) and this was the only real challenge Chaos 2 would face from another competitor until the semifinals of Series ''4'' (meaning this could almost be considered to have been the real Grand Final right then and there)! It wasn't ''just'' a great battle between two awesome robots either; after Chaos 2 flipped The Big Cheese and its was unable (just barely) to self-right, the House Robots came in for the kill. Sir Killalot drove his lance into The Big Cheese, lifting it into the air in retribution for boasts from Roger Plant that The Big Cheese could defeat him and carried it over to the arena floor flipper. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xny6LqNkbu8#t=7m43s What happened next was LEGENDARY]]: Killalot naively put The Big Cheese down on the flipper upright and it blithely drove right off it, attacked Sgt. Bash, hauled him ''into the air'' and ''broke him apart!'' This is the only instance of a competitor actually lifting a House Robot ''completely'' off the arena floor and cemented The Big Cheese forever as the most powerful electric lifter ''ever'' seen on the show.

* Razer whenever he is attacking the house robots, which is nearly every fight as seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtjF6zcx7k8 here]]
** Every one of Razer's appearances in Series 5. In each of the preceding three seasons, debilitating mechanical faults meant Razer was knocked out by the third round, and everyone, even its fans, were expecting a repeat. Cue unmitigated destruction of every single one of its opponents, culminating in a dominating fight against Bigger Brother in the finale and Razer being awarded the well-deserved title of Robot Wars Champion.
*** Well, it was the first to outright destroy a house robot - watch [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e4cHWS2758 this]].
* Any instance of the competitors abandoning the battle to go after the House Robots will often make for a CMOA; probably the best example would be the first melee of the Seventh Wars All-Stars Tournament, where Kat 3, Panic Attack, Bigger Brother and Firestorm all made a pre-match pact to go after the house robots - Shunt, the Refbot and Cassius Chrome - instead of each other. It's hilarious to watch, especially as the arena tries to fight back and fails, setting off the floor flipper and drop zone in a desperate attempt to catch out the competitors as they give the House Robots a thorough pasting. Can be seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jhjwkR5RZM here]].

* Warhog's design attempted to one-up Hypnodisc - its ''entire body'' was a kinetic energy weapon, covered in blades and [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spinning at high speed]]. Theoretically, such a design should provide amazing attack and defense. Unfortunately, they neglected to reinforce it - each time it rammed an enemy it was sent ''flying into the air'' while its opponent took minimal damage. After a few rams it had ceased functioning in a most awesome fashion.
* Wild Thing's heroic performance against the horrific destructive power of Hypno-Disc in the 4th Wars semi-final, not only being the first robot to actually survive a battle against Hypno-Disc in that series without being totally dismembered, but nearly winning the judge's decision through the courage and tenacity of their fightback.

** 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. Its 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.
*** Bonus points for being one of the few spinner style robots that didn't manage to shake itself apart every time it hit anything.[[note]]Hypno Disc generally lost more fights due to internal injury than actual other robots, and even the previous champion Typhoon gave itself critical damage twice in its last fight.[[/note]]
** [[JokeCharacter Nuts]] managing to take both veterans Behemoth and Terrorhurtz to the Judges' Decison in the Second Round, despite having virtually no weaponry and armor. Bonus points for their battle against Terrorhurtz because it was the third of three, and their second left them with a whole bunch of pieces and shrapnel; and they still managed to rebuild it in time for the next bout, AND were able to survive, despite their robot falling apart. They were even given the better Control mark, simply for the sheer audacity of going into battle with a broken robot ''[[CrazyAwesome and surviving]]''.
** Lastly, Carbide facing Behemoth in the final, where previously it had ran circles around the old robot and even took a chunk out of its plough. This rematch was over before it started, since Behemoth had drive issues, but Carbide still showed their raw power by tossing them about.
* Thor ''breakdancing'' by using its own hammer to flip itself and then self right. Later on they also showed excellent handling when they effectively did a handbreak turn into the pit release, slamming it and lining up the next attack without needing to reverse. Jason, the driver, deserves a mention for the sheer skill he had at driving the machine in all their battles.
* Mr Speed Squared were sadly a OneHitWonder, but the first fight they were in basically amounted to them effortlessly demolishing the competition without taking a good hit from anyone.

It's hilarious to watch, especially as the arena tries to fight back and fails, setting off the floor flipper and drop zone in a desperate attempt to catch out the competitors as they give the House Robots a thorough pasting.

* Eruption landing the first Ring Out of the reboot series against Terror Turtle was an impressive display. And while they were beaten by Storm 2, they started to turn that fight around at the end as well, by tossing Storm 2 a few times and seemingly imobilising them.
** Also, according to the Eruption team's [[https://www.facebook.com/EruptionRobot/posts/1580694648898850 writeup of the events]], they had actually managed to immobilise Storm 2 well before it was shown to be- enough that they probably should have been counted out but weren't, for unknown reasons.
* ''Apollo.'' Basically, any time it managed to work, awesome things happened. After losing a wheel to [=PP3D=] in the first round, they returned the favor in their Head to Head match, and won, while their launcher was only going at a quarter of its full power. And over the course of the tournament they took out no fewer than ''three'' House Robots, as well as beating previous runner up Storm 2 twice, the first on a narrow, but probably fair, judge's decision, the second time via a ring out.
* 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 heat final.
* 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]].
* 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 3. How successful was it? It got all the way to the episode final, and ''never'' lost by knockout.
* 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. It even accidentally ripped off a steel slab from the arena wall, forcing the show to pause the match.

* Apex vs. Track-tion was ''definitely'' this. The former's 39kg spinner bar hit the latter's wedge, and the result was enough to completely annihilate Apex.

The latter didn't even need to move to win the fight.
** This deserves some elaboration; Track-tion was a class project by a bunch of 13-year-old schoolkids and their teacher. In preparation for this fight, one of their fellow competitors, Vulture, loaned them their front scoop for defence against Apex's massive bar spinner, which had broken down after one attack in its previous fight. Once the fight began, Apex got off one attack, which did no worthwhile damage to Track-tion, rocking around from the recoil, before its weapon tore itself free and shot off at high speed into the see-through screens, and going right through it before being stopped by the second set, so luckily no one was hurt. The slow-mo replay showed something had clearly gone wrong with Apex; its weapon had started to hit its own chassis, therefore all the rocking and ultimately the weapon breaking free and going ballistic.
* Rapid vs. Terrorhurtz in the Heat Final is also worth a mention, as the culmination of both machines [[TookALevelInBadass taking a considerable level in badass]] since last year -- with the veteran Terrorhurtz delivering a real CurbStompBattle to Vulture to make its first ''Robot Wars'' heat final in nearly ''fourteen years'', and the newcomer Rapid throwing Track-tion [[RingOut out of the arena]] twice in succession and scoring one of the fastest knockouts in the show's history. Much like the battle between Apollo and Behemoth, it all came down to driving skill and strategy -- with both teams getting good attacks in and having the upper hand at various points. [[spoiler:This time however, it was the newcomers who came out on top -- with Rapid throwing Terrorhurtz over the wall, [[WhosLaughingNow and making up for their forfeit the previous year]]]].
* Series 10 Heat 4. Nuts 2 went from the resident JokeCharacter to Grand Finalist, winning the Heat without too much difficulty. Not so much for the performance in the ring, more for the idea that when the CrazyAwesome Nuts [[LethalJokeCharacter finally gets serious]], they can take on a previous Grand Finalist in Concussion, beat them ''twice'' -- the first time by caving in one of the wheels with their [[EpicFlail Meltybrain flails]], and in the second, [[CombatPragmatist taking advantage of the panels their opponents had installed to stop the wheels being damaged by flipping them over instead]] -- and still make a spectacle out if it.

** Big Nipper got its own moment of awesome [[spoiler:in the Redemption Round, when it one-upped Carbide's spectacular hit on Smash in Series 9 by throwing Smash so high into the air that it not only [[RingOut got hurled out of the arena]], but got sent up so high that ''it hit it ''hit the lighting rig!'' Big Nipper's vertical disc may not be as heavy as say, Carbide or Aftershock, but by ''god'', [[PintSizedPowerhouse is there some force behind it!]]]]
* Apex vs. Track-tion was ''definitely'' this. The former's 39kg spinner bar hit the latter's wedge, and the result was enough to completely annihilate Apex. Seriously, the bar flew off the robot, soared through the air and smashed the bulletproof glass at the edge of the arena, while the rest of it ended up flung across the other side of the arena. The latter didn't even need to move to win the fight.

** Before that, Concussion vs The Kegs. In one hit, Concussion's barrel spinner literally '''tears off the frame of one of The Kegs''' and completely immobilises it as it does. A second hit on the same robot also knocks off the wheel and more of the internal frame work. After the fight, Dara quips that the wheel is arguably the least damaged part of the whole robot.
* The Ten Robot Rumble in the 10th wars final was a war sequence of unprecedented proportions, with many strong contenders going at each other, the Doom dial getting triggered half a dozen times over (resulting in a lot of rogue house robots, since the pit can only open once), and the pit eventually being completely clogged with fallen robots.
* Nuts 2 in the 10th grand final proved themselves to be the undisputed master of CrazyAwesome, when they went up against Carbide and Behemoth. At this point, the Behemoth team are the most experienced veterans of Robot Wars by a long way, and Carbide was the then-undefeated grand champion. Nuts 2 not only won, but they dominated the fight throughout; using [[MechaMooks a minibot]] to drop the pit under Behemoth without warning, smashing Carbide's weapon chain with their flails to stop their bar from working, and then almost succeeding in immobilizing them by wedging under their wheels with the other minibot. Carbide came within ''one second'' of a complete defeat, [[LethalJokeCharacter and a unanimous judges decision gave the win to Nuts 2]].
* Carbide vs. Rapid in the Series 10 final's redemption round -- the most feared robot in the revived series vs. the most expensive, and what turned out to be a true RoaringRampageOfRevenge for the Series 9 champion. Rapid gets a few good flips on Carbide -- coming close to throwing them out of the arena -- but Carbide then tears a panel off Rapid with its first solid hit. Carbide then follows this up with another big hit to the internals, [[IncendiaryExponent damaging Rapid's Lithium-Polymer batteries]]. Rapid is left scurrying around the arena, filling it with billowing smoke, before Carbide freezes it with another hit. After the match ends, Rapid literally ''explodes'' into flames.

* From Robot Wars Extreme Warriors (the US version), we've got Tricerabot the House Robot killer. It flipped a flywheel-bearing Matilda, and ''[[HolyShitQuotient shoved Sir Killalot into the pit]]''. [[ExecutiveMeddling It sadly wasn't shown on TV]]. Keep in mind, this was the season BEFORE it even had a flipper.

** 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]].

* Velocirippa may often be considered one of the greatest {{butt monkey}}s of ''Robot Wars,'' never winning a battle[[note]]of course their ''other'' robot, Mighty Mouse, was a different matter[[/note]] but it did at least make an ''awesome'' first impression- the robot has a single win registered on its wiki page, not for a battle, but for the Robotic Soccer qualifier round it won against Demolition Demon 2. Robotic Soccer was often an awkward, clumsy affair where the ball would get stuck and would sometimes only end up in the net by sheer accident, but after a cagey start Velocirippa waited for their chance, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rs_4Kzle1Ro&t=2m15s then when Matilda knocked the ball back into the centre of the arena they RUSHED in, scooped it up with pinpoint precision and drove it straight into the net!]] Soccer is often called UsefulNotes/TheBeautifulGame, and this was a truly ''beautiful'' goal, a stunning display of razor-sharp driving and timing.

** And although it may not look like it, it's also an awesome moment for Rapid. Not only did they nearly flip ''[[TheDreaded Carbide]]'' out of the arena, [[{{Determinator}} they still kept going even after their LiPos get smashed]] -- normally something that leads to [[YouAreAlreadyDead immediate stoppage, followed by smoke, and then spectacular fiery death]]. And then, after the resulting battery fire that appeared to gut their robot, the team revealed [[https://www.facebook.com/RAPIDROBOTWARS/posts/524639647900219 on social media afterward]] that ''[[MadeOfIron 90% of Rapid was still useable after being seemingly destroyed]]''. If that doesn't speak for how well-engineered it is, nothing does.
-->'''RAPID Robotwars 2017''': 90% is salvageable. All that is needed is a new speed controller, new bulkhead, new elastic, and of course a new lipo. It looked a lot worse than it was. [[JustAFleshWound Don't forget the can of air freshener as this Rapid now smells!]]
