* DefeatMeansFriendship: In Robot Wars Extreme, Spawn Again teamed up with Comengetorix for a tag team match. The former's explanation of why they joined forces? "Last year we beat them, ever since we've been friends!"

* DefeatMeansFriendship: DefeatMeansFriendship:
** The famous 101/King Buxton rivalry was mostly for show: captains Grant Hornsby and Mike Franklin actually became very good friends and even talked about joining up to make a robot together in the reboot era. After two battles, the two teamed up and won the Tag Team Terror tournament in Series 4.
**There were other instances of enemies becoming friends.

* "Put On A Bus": Newer house robots Mr. Psycho, Cassius Chrome and Growler did not return for the rebooted series 8 (nor were they mentioned), but perhaps more surprisingly Sgt. Bash, one of the original four house robots, did not return alongside its fellow originals. In March 2017 an online petition was started to bring Bash back including new designs to make Bash more dangerous.

* SoLastSeason: A surprising number of robots from the original series have returned over a ''decade'' later for the 2016 reboot with more-or-less the same design as they had the last time they were seen. Although some of them did quite well, there were plenty of early exits and ultimately none of them made it beyond the heat final.

Although some of them did quite well, there were plenty of early exits and ultimately none of them made it beyond the heat final. Perhaps the best example involved former British and World champions Razer who were involved in the very first match of the first heat of the reboot, they were quickly ganged up on and dumped in the pit and did not return for Series 9.

* LovelyAssistant: Arguably Philippa Forrester and Julia Reed.

* LovelyAssistant: Arguably Philippa Forrester and Julia Reed. In the re-boot Angela Scanlan certainly covers the "lovely" criteria but is treated as more of a co-presenter with Dara O'Briain than exclusively a backstage reporter.

* {{Kayfabe}}: The Extreme series were more based around this, with "grudge matches" arranged that saw perfectly pleasant roboteers snarling at and trash-talking each other before and after the fights. The amateur acting wasn't convincing at all and fooled nobody, which made it somewhat NarmCharm. The show itself was designed like a professional wrestling show with a "Main Event" bout being touted and built up throughout the broadcast, and the conception and filming of the original Extreme show was during the peak of World Wrestling Entertainment's worldwide popularity.
