It's pretty clear that if you don't turn on BattleBots right now and start watching the first round of the World Championship Finals, HUGE will be pretty mad. Just sayin'. BattleBots is ON NOW at Discovery ! ... See MoreSee Less
Love, love, love this season!!!
Great season so far
I'm so excited can't wait to download the ep on google play!!!
Can't wait for the next round of the tournament. I didn't get to see the hydra/minotaur fight live, since I was gettin ready to leave for my job, but once I saw who won, my question was answered. Been a big fan of your show since I first heard about it a couple years ago. I was not expecting it to be so entertaining and insane! Wow!
Witch Doctor vs. Blacksmith was AWESOME! Best fight of the season IMO. Really pulling for them to win it all next Friday.
huge was the clear winner of that fight. the producers had a explanation of how the fights will be scored earlier in the season and it was clear damage was the most important factor but when a bot does damage to the other and still loses to someone who just sits under them and jams up there blade.
Whiplash !!! So awesome 👏
Never liked SOW. What an satisfying defeat that was to watch.
Interesting how almost all 8 of the teams that moved on have some type of spinner as their primary weapon 🤔
Huge won that fight!
I ALMOST* got an UpperCut from the Biteforce of a Cupcake watching this. 🤒🤕😵. DO NOT EAT WHILE WATCHING 🙅
Quantum played the role of Marvis Frazier to Tombstone's Mike Tyson impersonation.
The quarterfinals all look pretty uneven to me. Bite Force, Tombstone, Witch Doctor, and Minotaur seem like clear favorites. The semis and finals match should be fantastic though
Well Huge isn't that good and didn't really deserve to be here so it's not that big of a deal
My dvr decided not to record today’s show. 😖
Would have liked to see how far duck got in the tournament...
I got to say Huge has made some great improvements this year and is actually bringing it! I did poo poo Huge getting a main event, and the crow tasted feathery.
LOL judges are a complete joke. I thought it was how much damage you can do and not just pushing around. Once again another bot got robbed, i.e Huge. Sad.
SawBlaze left the box early! That ought to count against them, but didn't.
Paul Ventimiglia you are on your way to another championship
Huge got hosed by the judges.
Lisa Winters is a terrible judge. Huge won that fight. Whiplash never mounted any offense. Getting stuck under another bot is not offense. Black Dragon also won. Lockjaw got saved by the bell. He shouldn't be rewarded for that. Guess who Winters chose? She has made terrible judgments all year.
This show is NOTHING but commercials. Cut to one hour already 🙄
Night of upsets. Pretty sure everyone's bracket was killed by the first 3 fights.
We would if it was shown in the UK.

What is more fun than watching an episode of BattleBots? Watching an episode of BattleBots and winning a FREE robotic mower!!! Tune in TONIGHT! at 8 PM (ET) because our sponsor Mowbot is having a Tweet contest. Battle with your fellow BotFans to win a robot lawn mower! #mowbot ... See MoreSee Less
I'd love to but I no longer have a Twitter account otherwise I would
What size blade could I put on this? Thinking maybe a 42"
I would love that so much. My stupid back pain keeps me from mowing, and my wife insists on mowing it for me. I wish I could get this so she wouldn’t have to.
I have a huuuuge yard out in the country. It used to be a horse pasture.
This is the most annoying and in your face marketing I've seen in a long time... Please stop. These mowbot ads are annoying. I'm about to unfollow your page. It's more mowbots than BattleBots! Stop It!!! Please!
Real Battlebot fans don't tweet.......we twert!!! Send out a FB contest so all of us have a chance!!!
Wish I could win but don’t know how to tweet.
Future BattleBots participant here!
Redneck lawnmower races just got interesting
Does it air tonight also in Canada?
I dont tweet 😔
Unfair for people that don't have a Twitter joke????
I would need Tombstone to cut my grass. My yard would KO that little thing in 12 secs
Gotta sign into my Twitter

TONIGHT at 8pm ET is the beginning of the BattleBots World Championship, and the fight for the Giant Nut! Who will win‽ Who will hoist the most glorious fastener in all of competitive sports‽ It all starts TONIGHT! 8pm (et) on Discovery Just turn your TV on now to get it all warmed up and ready!! ... See MoreSee Less
This is going to be an amazing championship. So many good bots!
Everyone is counting out Minotaur. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them win. What have they really got to lose? I think their driver will be able to stay away from the flipper for the most part. If that happens...look out!
Best show on Earth!
I suppose I’m going to have to not DVR and watch live this week. Gonna miss not having it to look forward to when all my favorite football teams lose this weekend.
Not gonna rain on these worthy Bots' parade with a Duck! Manifesto. Good luck to all!
Going to be a good one for sure
I can’t wait! I’m voting for Tombstone or Witch Doctor winning the championship!
I will be viewing this
And here we go!!
Was there for the final round. Wave to the cameras!
We've got a watch party gathering tonight! Go Sawblaze! Slash and Burn!
What a phenomenal championship bracket!! HUGE and Tombstone are on a collision course, provided they can each win their opening match. Whiplash vs HUGE will be an interesting fight Team Whyachi has two powerful bots in play, and we'll see Black Dragon and Uppercut play with the big dogs!
Is it Friday night yet!?!
Ah, the lesser-spotted interrobang, we meet again
Did I miss something about deep six? Why are they not involved?
Why is death roll ranked 6th? Tombstone had a knockout against it, and it is higher ranked! No way will you sell me on that one.
I just want to watch SOW destroy robots! He's my personal fav!
I am watching it now
Huge won!! Terrible call
Just here to top fan
Huge was robbed!!!
If this field gets any bigger, we’re gonna need a top 24.

AMA with Team Nightmare/Breaker Box tonight at 7pm ET over at reddit.com/r/battlebots ... See MoreSee Less
Was hopeful that this bot would have made a better showing, and showcase more configurations
Breaker Box has competed off TV and shown itself to be pretty solid, so seeing this build never really find its stride was sad. BB is a much better bot that its performance this season makes it look.
Time for a new design, guys.
I genuinely don’t even know why they made that thing or what it’s supposed to accomplish. I like the protected wheels, though. I suspect we’ll see more of that in the future, it’s a pretty obvious design flaw for all of the teams that leave their wheels entirely exposed and are shocked when someone shreds their tires.
Not a good bot ._.
Kind of seems like a Duck knock off only not nearly as robust.
Prior history with Nightmare set expectations high, but Breaker Box didn't deliver.
Yall should put a very hard vertical mini saw blade behind the front end lifter wall even three mini blades to do damage when lifted
Jim, I know a guy who can water-jet you a nice titanium weapon. Code name Terry. Nightmare, Nightmare, Nightmare.
Please redesign nigthmare bot and return with this
Break box 😂 terrible
Trolls on the internet vs real life
Using shaft collars are not the one 🙁
bring back NIGHTMARE
At least they tried.
Will nightmare come back next season
Literally every comment: Bring back Nightmare
Can't wait to see Breaker Box next year
A fight with duck will be a funny fight.
Ryan Jussila when we get together for drinks
Those arm things they wear, tarded

Humans! After three months of brutal robot fighting it comes down to this: The Top 16, and the BattleBots World Championship Bracket. Let the World Championship Bot Battles Begin! Round 1 kicks off tomorrow, 8pm ET on Discovery ! ... See MoreSee Less
Bite Force, Lock-Jaw, Tombstone (rip Quantum), HUGE, Witch Doctor, Sawblaze, Hydra (Minotaur will learn to fly) and Death Roll. I got 6 out of 8 right but one of the bots gets a auto loss next round.
Wow! This is going to be fantastic. And here are my predictions for the first round. Bite Force, Black Dragon, Tombstone, Whiplash, Witch Doctor, SOW, Hydra and Death Roll for the wins.
Alot of great battles coming our way, the only 2 I am positive will win is Biteforce and Witch Doctor as all the other fights have many a factor that can make them go eather way.
My predictions for the first round is Bite Force, Lock Jaw, Tombstone, Huge, Witch Doctor, Sawblaze, Minotaur, Yeti. Second Round is Bite Force, Tombstone, Witch Doctor, Minotaur. Witch Doctor could go all the way this year if Bite Force looses to Tombstone.
Soooooo excited!!!!! Forget football... My family is definitely filing out our BattleBots brackets! Let's see who wins the Giant Nut!
I’m pulling for tombstone!! Ray Billings was nice enough to send me a hand written letter signed with some stickers and an autographed championship year tombstone playing card. Thanks so much Ray! Sir you’re one of the best out there!
This card is freaking stacked! Is going to be a great tourney.
Despite loving both of them, really hope Quantum beat Tombstone. However it would be funny to watch Tombstone v Huge.
I’ve missed so many seasons and episodes but I’m trying to catch up. This season has been amazing!
Love this show! How do you get in the audience!!??
Wow!! I bet Quantum has been waiting to try and take a bite out of Tombstone! I think Minotaur is going to get flipped out of the ring by Hydra!
Very difficoult for Minotaur, the two desperado tournament winner fighting each other, I don't understand why Whiplash higher than Death Roll
I'm predicting- Bite force. Lock jaw. Tombstone (would love it if quantum could pull an upset). Whiplash. Witch Doctor. SOW. Minotaur and Death roll.
Great matches! Looking forward to the return of Duck! and Hal in '20, though.
This is going to be good! Hard to predict who will win. If there is an upset, I think Huge will win its first match. After that. who knows. I am really looking forward to some great BattleBots action! Take it away Faruq!
Whaaaa so hard to choose!! Why hydra and Minotaur facing off together??😩😩 I think i have to go with hydra all the way!! But I love Minotaur too!
As a minataur fan, this is awesome win or lose this is going to be amazing. I believe they will beat hydra, they keep getting better after starting 0 - 2
Awesome. Bite Force and Tombstone on same side. Hydra and Minotaur is going to be great.
I wanna see a battle bots legacy fight bring back some of the old 1990s era battle bots and have them compete against some of the new ones. Even bring back Mark Beiro to do a special guest introduction alongside Faruq Tauheed. Just imagine Hazzard vs Tombstone. I would definitely watch that episode.
A few things caught my eye... 1. SOW & Lockjaw both seeded too low (Esp. SOW!) 2. Tombstone got a good path to make the final 4 3. Minotaur got the one fight that will give it serious trouble on both offense and defense
Seems like the Witch Doctor side of the bracket is significantly stronger than the Bite Force side of the bracket. I guess you never know though. Bots are beat up by this time of the competition and now very fast turnaround times between fights. Will be fun to watch for sure though!
Death Roll a 6 seed.... that seems very low. Top2-3 seed all day.
There are better drivers and in some ways better bots but Hydra's low stature is going to be such a weapon in itself that I struggle to see anyone really damaging it outside of a freakishly perfect shot midflip perhaps.
Left side: Bite Force, Black Dragon (although should be a good match), Quantum with the upset over tombstone (unless tombstone gets around the side of quantum, just don't see his spinner doing much damage), Huge upsetting whiplash, although should be a good fight, Right side, Witch Doctor, SOW, Hydra (although I think its only weakness is a bot like Minotaur, wouldn't be surprised at an upset), Yeti (should be a good fight)
Feeding the previous lucker free wins again... When will Bite force actually have to come up against a decent competitor that has a chance of killing that boring box of scrap
"AND THAT'S A KNOCKOUT!!!" A huge thank you to all the referees! 😀
I love you John 😀
''If we clearly see the bot is not going to move again we'll start the coutndown instantly''. Battlebots 2018 - Bronco v Bombshell, Bombshell literally out of the arena, ''WE NEED TO SEE SOME MOVEMENT''. Oh John, you have given us so many good moments, we wouldnt want anyone else.
You have to be able to count to 10.
AMA with Team Copperhead tonight at 7pm MT over at Reddit.com/r/BattleBots ... See MoreSee Less
My favorite bot of the season! Just too many gremlins. No more temperature sensors or escs that let tiny parts shear off on impact! (how does that even happen???) good showing guys! Better luck next year! 😁
Loved poison arrow, and while the bot didn't quite live up to expectations this season, I thought they put on a great show! And very close to getting into the round of 16
this bot has a good chance to go far.
love watching this!!!!!!!!!!!!
They definitely have the most entertaining "backgrounds" when Zach is getting interviewed. Lol
That was a good fight
Remember how cocky they were at the start of the season 😂😂😂😂

Quantum may be a champ in the BattleBox, but not so much in the Backyard. That's where our sponsor Mowbot wins unanimously. Their fleet or robots provide that nice clean cut your grass needs to stay healthy! ... See MoreSee Less
This would make life a lot easier 😁
Sold! if it's comes with pooper scooper!👍
I'm gonna buy a MowBot, put seat and steering wheel on it, and train my dog to sit on it with his paws on the steering wheel while it mows! The neighbors will be stopping in the street!
I bet Tombstone would be a badass lawnmower
Can they build a jumping pyramid that cuts my lawn?
"may be a champ in the battle box" hope you're not spoiling something there
Quantum: a true symbol of simplicity
It's a small $3,000.00 mower... It's not ready for commercial advertising until it's much cheaper. No one wants a $3,000 mower Husqvarna! Go back to the drawing board you idiots and stop advertising it!
Maybe Quantum could carry cuttings and lumber away for you lol
Throw in Hypershock with a rake, and you've got an Autumn deal for the ages.
I really hope this isn't weird spoilers
Obligatory actual battlebots vs tall grass advertisement video?
I wouldn't mind having one
Genuinely though this was a Shuntposting meme at first glance
So you're saying Quantum is no good as a bush trimmer?
But how well do Mowbots do in battle?
The mowbot is nice, but it just won't be the same if Faruq isn't there to get everything started. "It's robot mowing time!"
I currently own a Roomba. I love it. I would probably love Mowbot.
I would totally hire Valkyrie or Rotator to mow my lawn.
I would hire Tombstone to cut down shrubbery and small trees lol
That would be awesome to have, it'd definitely save on having to buy gas for the mower I'd buy that in a heartbeat
Honey I shrunk the Kids predicted this. Where’s our shrinking laser!?!
Shouldn't it have a 70lbs spinning bar to cut grass with ?
did they call their graphic designer an aggressive tool?
SOW as a lawnmower would be a safety hazard.
Yeti would make for a terrible lawn mower lol
I believe I now need to see a lawn rumble. Mowbot vs. Valkyrie vs. Yeti. Points for: Destruction (on the grass), Speed, Control 😂
Horizontal blade spinner- check. But it needs a flame weapon to deal with weeds.
Betcha they could push Duck around!
...but is there a hammer version? ; )
Seems like a logical sponsorship to me 🙂
Spinning blade? Let’s put it in the battle box!! 😂
Do they get a feature rumble?
Put one of those up against Tombstone
Mowbot vs. Roomba!
Nick White I know what I wanna do in the battle bots off season.
My favorite bot!
Hey, Team Valkyrie. I just wanna say congratulations on a great season. I’m sad you guys aren’t in the post season, but I hope you come back bigger and better. #BattleBotsRocks
Hands down one of my favorite bots. I love the spirit that you guys portray in the sport, and you always are a class act from everything iv seen and heard. Keep repping the sport in the way you guys do, and youl forever be a fan favorite <3
I wished you guys were in the tourney instead of quantum -_-, looking forward to seeing you guys next yr 🙂
Oh Sweet Caroline....
I'm bummed y'all didn't make it in the tournament but congratulations on an epic 2019 season, looking forward to seeing everyone in the 2020 season
Hopefully you had a souvenir which is Quantum's tooth.
Leann has more swag than all the other teams combined.

My son and I have been talking about making the trek down to Long Beach (if that's where it is again next year) to see a taping of the show.
Just printed a copy for each of my 5 sons! They are so excited! I am so sad that my favorite bot, Bronco, had such a rough season.
My life will be empty and bleak once this season ends. This has been the best season by far.
Even though Duck! and Hal are not in the mix, we will be watching. Good luck all Bots!
In Bronco we trust !
This will be exciting!!
Here you go, I tried my best at this to guess who is seeded where. I figured the eight that went straight into the tournament would get the top 8 seeds while the ones who had to fight an extra fight to enter will get the bottom 8 seeds. (Also there are two 12 seeds and no 13th seed, so I fixed that.)
I’m curious who will come out on top!
I hope there will be Tombstone VS Blacksmith.
The 12th seed is on there twice. U guys done goofed
Here's how I see the seeds lining up.
Is there a prize if we get it right?! 😁
Just stick Free Shipping in the winner box and we're done #FREESHIPPINGISBAE
Can't wait for this to start! I'm going out right now and saying Menataur will take it all. Since they got their weapon fixed right, they have been unstoppable!
Its me, or they repeat #12, I guess someone forgot how to write the #13
Just when I thought, there was too much time killed on bs fights, I'm sad to see only 2 episodes left 😥.
Who’s starting the $5 bracket pool??
All I'm saying is that if we don't see SoW versus Tombstone, I will be disappointed.
I feel bad for whoever's on 13 as there is no place for you on this. Lucky for 12 tho as they get two chances. This might also be a typo but I think the above makes way more sense
My son made this prediction #BattleBots. He's claiming a billion points if he is right.
Here's my guess at the bracket.
Depending upon the seeds, Bite Force,Tombstone, Hydra and Witch Doctor/ Minotaur in the final 4
Here are my guesses for seeding: 1. BiteForce, 2. DeathRoll, 3. WitchDoctor, 4. Hydra, 5. BlackDragon, 6. SawBlaze, 7. Tombstone, 8. Whiplash, 9. Quantum, 10. SOW, 11. Huge, 12. LockJaw, 13. Yeti, 14. Minotaur, 15. UpperCut, 16. Blacksmith
