* Max uses Atom's Shadow function to make him dance before fights. Many boxers and other athletes take dance and ballet classes in their off time because it helps with their speed, agility, and concentration. By teaching him how to dance Max also contributes to one of Atom's greatest strengths, his speed and maneuverability due to his small size.

* Zeus's [[spoiler:running out of batteries at the end]] makes sense when you realize that Zeus seems prioritized to deal out ''incredibly'' powerful attacks. The power for those attacks has to come from somewhere. In other words, [[spoiler:he has to trade out battery life for greater impact, similar to how real life Slugger style boxers expend more energy for stronger blows.]]

*** That's like saying no one would listen to music from the 90s today...or perhaps they don't, hence why Max's gimmick goes over so well. Imagine a boxer performing FrankSinatra before a fight in the real world, for example.

** In BattleBots on TV, it seemed to be considered a dick move to continue trashing a disabled robot. One opponent kept smashing up a disabled robot, then pushed it into one of the arena weapons, and was soundly booed. The underground fights may operate on the same 'honor'. There's no need to destroy someone's expensive robot when it's down... and consider what might happen to ''yours'' next time it goes down.

* FridgeBrilliance: Zeus' strongest attribute is considered his adaptive opperating system, which allows him to adapt to his enemy's fighting style. [[spoiler:Throughout the film, Charlie shows a knack for predicting and adapting to his opponent's moves. Combined with his natural durability, this makes Atom a perfect match for Zeus.]]

*** In other words, it's probably similar to totaling a car. At a certain point it becomes more feasible to simply replace a bot than repair it.

*** The robot fighters already count as testbeds for intelligent weapon control systems. None of them is physically good enough to take on a tank.

Added DiffLines:

** Walking and maintaining balance for giant top heavy robots is probably difficult enough without mechanics of kicking. Standing on one leg while swinging the other leg only to come to an abrupt stop when it hits the other robot might be too taxing on the whatever program the robots use to balance themselves. Also, if the robot's foot were to get damaged by kicking the downed opponent might just end up with two robots lying down.
