** This troper even read a statement on Facebook before said fight regarding both Scorpio and Crash. Scorpio had its "swords" while Crash had his "shield." It can be said that the shield finally broke the swords and in turn broke Scorpio.

** It was even better then that: Steel Cylcone essentially snapped Thunder Skull's lower torso, swapping up for down on the part of torso, leaving Thunder Skull's head almost touching the ground while still standing. It had this troper on his feet, as it was one of the most-awesome moments yet on this show.

** The mere fact that ''neither'' side was willing to give up, taking their robots so far that by the end both robots were ''smoking'' from the strain being put on them. For all the hype, the final match manages to live up to it. And Amber's CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming is a beautiful cherry on top.

* Steampunk vs. Medieval. After taking taking turns wailing on each other in the previous rounds, Medieval enters Round 3 with a busted left arm, forcing his crew to move his mace to the right arm. Though they didn't win over the judge's, they quickly inflicted the same injury on Steampunk, and by the end they were both hammering away at each other with their one good arm like cornered dingos. [[{{Determinator}} Neither one of them was going down without a fight.]]

Added DiffLines:

**Worth noting that Diana all but admitted that they had expected Crash to falter easily when she said that "(Scorpio) actually had to fight now" instead of Diana wildly throwing her arms around and hope to hit Crash's midsections to split him in half. We all know how that turned out.

*** To put things in perspective, both robots were considered titans of defense, barely sustaining any major damage throughout the tournament. Barely even halfway through, both robots were absolutely ''mangled.'' [[{{Determinator}} And they still kept going.]]


* Steampunk vs. Crash in the championship was a [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown brutal 5-round best-of-three battle]] that went the full five rounds. And during the battle, Crash seemed unable to keep it's arms from breaking or losing it's fists, while Steampunk's foot caught fire and it's fist was torn off it's mounting. Crash took the first two rounds, which brought in a mechanized weapon, only for Steampunk to battle back and win the next two, leaving it for the fifth and final round, which Crash barely managed to win, thus winning them the tournament. And during their celebration, Amber combined a Crowning Moment of Awesome with a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming by promising Ashley, jockey of Steampunk and struggling single mother, that she and her father would help Ashley out.

* Steampunk vs. Steel Cyclone was a constant back-and-forth slugfest that was decided in Steampunk's favor... by ''JUST ONE POINT''.

Added DiffLines:

* This became rather blatant with the fight against Crash. Scorpio had been so used to bisecting its opponents in halves thanks to its blades, but can barely penetrate Crash's rollcage and wasted a lot of opportunities to actually do lasting damage ''even with the feared drill''.


* Crash vs. Brimstone, in which [[spoiler:Crash]] not only wins in the third round by causing [[spoiler:Brimstone]] to crumple like a drink can, but causes it to catch on fire in the midsection. Twice.
** Catch fire? The second time it practically ''exploded''.

** Crash, the underdog rodot being piloted by a father-sister {{Determinator}} team (dad survived throat cancer, daughter surviving kidney failure), making it to the finals when it was largely believed they wouldn't survive Round 1 of their first match is a MoA in itself. They even managed to defeat the seemingly unstoppable blades of Scorpio.

* Crash VS Scorpio: ''The whole damn fight'' was an awesome moment for all parties involved. Both robots come out hammering each other which causes both to leave the round in horrible shape; Crash gets sent into the pits early (but not before shredding off Scorpio's chestplate) while Scorpio barely limps away. Round 2 ends up a VERY close call, but by the end Crash's jockey passes out from heat exhaustion, while Scorpio's literally holding together with duct tape. In Round 3 (where the teams are allowed to bring in extra weapons), Crash once again strips off Scorpio's armor, while Scorpio retaliates by busting Crash's arm with his deadly blades and poking through the exposed spot on Crash's rollcage with his drill-thing...but Crash ''flails his broken arm around and still manages deadly hit after deadly hit to Scorpio's mid-section, not slowed down at all'' and wins by a '''very''' close judge's call (84-81).
