"Ugh, why'd we have to get the ref who shouts super loud?"
I can't believe I forgot my wife's birthday.
Windows 10 needs an urgent Update, please wait...
Guys, this new hand lotion smells AMAZEBALLS!
Practicing for the role of Hagrid in the local amateur theatre re-enactment of Harry Potter "I shouldn't have said that... I should not have said that"
They have been evaluating my life choices
“I will now demonstrate how to properly use an axe” -The ref, probably.
" I cant believe I just traveled across the globe to get knocked out within 30 seconds twice "
"It's time to make the doughnuts."
“The meat goes inside the taco like THIS!” “Dude, I’m trying to tell you, we are NOT making tacos!”
"Please remove item from bagging area and wait for assistance."
“Dangit, I opened iTunes.”
I can’t believe you wore that today!
Aw no! I glued my hand to my face again!
Dammit,I gave my shopping list to Faruq instead of presenting the bot
When you hear the door unlocking and realizing you forgot to take the chicken out the freezer
Faruq farted in the battle box, and the construction of the box itself acts as a perfect reverberation chamber, making it one of the most epic sounding farts of all time. The judge advises him that its a knock-out fart.
That moment when you hear Faruq's introduction for your battlebot.
"Not the new Minotaur, too!"
The face you make when you know that you provide good entertainment from winning as much as loosing 👌😂🍺
“I can’t get a moment’s peace around here...”
Tim massively regrets picking "Rock" as the Ref slams down his "Paper"
The Ref is trying to teach the guys how to use the axe on their bot.
Dammit Jim! You put the lime in the coconut, not the coconut in the lime...
They ate a crave case of sliders then realized they're out of toilet paper.
Yet another example of non Indigenous people stealing and appropriating Northwest Coast Art. The form line is so poorly done it’s insulting to all Northwest Coast clans. Kind of karma I guess that you ended up in multiple pieces.
People everywhere are making jokes, but Emmanuel and Kevin are providing every detail of what happened, pics, etc. This is perhaps the most knowledge-intensive AMA of the season and even teams are learning from it.
I think they need to get ahold of the manufacturer of their rubber insulators for a warranty claim.
AMA the insurance company?
The 3 horseman?
Rest in Pieces Warhawk 😢
You guys got some fixin' to do!
How do they feel their multibot strategy is working?
A pretty simple bot, but proven effective! Though i dont know why people keep trying flame throwers. They do so little little. But as flame cannons go, Gruff's seems fairly consistent at least
Very impressive flamer. Well done!
Their defense is something to be admired. Really made Copperhead work for that victory
When I see Gruff's flames, I totally forgot about Free Shipping
Gruff has the coolest flamer. Having the coolest anything is always great.
I'm 100% on the Gruff train! Fire and flips!
Biggest obstacle with flamers is not setting themselves on fire. Gruff's does seem the most effective I've seen though.
The only thing these guys need is cooler shirts and more self confidence.
LOVED that flamer!! Can you get it to work for longer? And hotter?
I felt they won on aggression
Gruff was close to being 2-0, could have melted those huge Copperhead tires into rubber soup.
They definitely dominated that match. Copperhead had no control whatsoever and spent most it's time flailing about
The only flame that looks like it is actually decent and can do something to a bot
Duck! is being disrespected. More on the mighty Quack Attack, please.
A flamer that is a serious active weapon. Love the bot, but if they had that flamer centered, coupled with a grapple device, it could be a serious KO machine.
I don't remember seeing their first fight, was it aired and I just missed it? Either way I was very impressed with their flame thrower, looking forward to seeing more from Gruff.
That Flamethrower is epic also a pretty tough bot.

Glorious carnage awaits those who turn on their television sets and switch to Discovery #BattleBots Fight Night is on NOW! And stay after for Savage Builds - the new series by former BattleBots builder and Judge Adam Savage ... See MoreSee Less
I’m watching the show now, I love the show
My sister watches for the carnage. She was very happy tonight.
Ragna-flop needs to go home and work on improving their bot. They've only been operational for like 10 seconds or so between their 2 fights. Both have been 1 hit KOs. Friday's fight was all of 3½ seconds.
This might have been the best episode, beginning to end, ever.
I am there now!!! I am soooo excited!!! 😎
Imagine if japan take this fights to the anime...lol
Wow! An amazing amount of carnage tonight. Never seen so many bots literally ripped apart. AWESOME!!!
Sooooo disappointed with Branco tonight. I miss my bot! Hope they bring their game next time. 😕
That was the greatest episode of all time!
I’m glad I dvr . Way to many commercials this year .
All of the fights are great.
it doesn't look like you are going to have judges explain their decision during episodes. tonight the commentary crew tried to explain judges decisions a bit, but I wonder if you could find an ex judge or someone even more familiar with the rules to give some thoughts on close decisions. when you watch football or basketball now they have ex officials explain rules.
Show is great!, Faruq needs to go, and 2 hours is a little much for 15 mins (if your lucky) of battle bots.🤷♂️
That first match was beyond words. Flipped into 3 pieces!!
in the finale they often need to fill up some time. if free shipping and yeti don't get to the final seeing another match between those two would be entertaining. much more than some random bot being sacrificed to tombstone.
Great Fights Tonight!
WOW!!!! Just WOW!!!! I knew it was going to be an amazing Bot fighting night!
I like bite force, but was hoping to see it being launched by bronco 😆
Oh my gawd!!! That has to be the most destructive episode I've seen!
As I was bailing hay I thought... hydra and my kicker bailer aren't so much different.
So what constitutes when Kenny Florian shakes hands or just pats on the shoulder?
Wow bronco was out classed in every way possible
POOF. Sparks flying everywhere! #BattleBots
Love the show...but a little less talk...more robot fightin time...please?!
For the first time ever, legendary flipper Bronco takes on the 2018 Champion Bite Force. This fight has me all verklempt so please discuss amongst yourselves. Don't miss BattleBots, tonight 8pm (ET) on Discovery (check your local listings for the exact time in your area). And don't miss Savage Builds, staring our friend Adam Savage right after BattleBots. ... See MoreSee Less
Very Excited! We have been wondering when we get to see Bronco back in action.
I hope Bronco was able to protect those damn wheels this match!
This is going to be an amazing match! I can hardly wait till tonight!!! I can’t even pick a winner for this match, I like them both equally. 😎
My kid loves bronco, to the point we had all of the videos I could find on YouTube looping through a projector at his birthday party. And had Dairy Queen put a picture in the cake.
I love the tension they built up with this one, explaning everything very clearly.
Did the episode on Wednesday not air? I remember reading something about how it wouldn’t, but I thought that was last week. Time Means nothing to me, so I don’t keep track.
I can’t wait! BRONCO!!!!
What a hype video! Whoever is editing these video packages are doing are brilliant job.
Ughhhh nooooooo. We've got a storm coming in and now we've lost our satellite signal 5 minutes before showtime. Bronco is my favorite and I was waiting all season for him! 😠 Edit: Well, I got my signal back and caught plenty of bot action, including watching my fave Bronco absolutely failing tonight. It guts me when he fails. I miss those epic flips. 😒
Waiting for 🤪unexpected surprises.
This is a great fight in the making
BattleBots: would love to see the judges’ scoring breakdowns on decisions, with at least a brief analysis. Could you post the scoring system under plot outline under “about”—for quick reference? Great to have that handy without having to dig through a link. (I know, I should have it memorized. 🤓)
My 2 cents on the main event. Soon as Bronco raised its flipper at the wrong time, Bite Force chewed the end off and that was it. Am I surprised at the result? Not really. At this point, it may be a show down between Bite Force and Tombstone.
I can't wait to see this fight!
It is an honor to face Bronco!
This is probably the most hyped I am for a match
Ooh. Not sure who my money is on in this one. The best flipper in the competition against last year’s champ. I think I’m going to bet on Biteforce by decision (with the stipulation that IF Bronco puts Paul Ventimiglia’s bot up into the lighting grid, the fight is over: Bronco wins...) Either way, going to be a great fight.
Can't walt for this match. This could be epic!
Put it back on regular Hulu!!!!!!
I fear for Broncos wheels. But if they stay on the whole time he has this fight I think.
Bronco needs the first hit. If he is able to flip Bite Force and possibly getting him on his back, Bronco stands a good chance of getting Bite Force out of the arena. If Bite Force is able to get the first hit, then they’re gonna keep hitting and pushing Bronco all over the box and win with either a 1:30 knockout or a unanimous decision.
If Bronco wins I fully expect the boys to pound all hell out the lexan like the time they beat Hazard 😎💪
Friday's Fight Card is full of Buckers and Brawlers: Let us know your predictions, and be sure to tune-in Friday night at 8pm (ET) on Discovery.
Fourteen teams battle it out with their eyes set on making the Top 16. Rookie flipper, Hydra, takes on WAR Hawk to try and prove their first fight wasn’t a fluke. Yeti is throwing strategy out the door against Free Shipping, and for the first time ever, the returning champ, Bite Force, is taking on the legendary flipper, Bronco! ... See MoreSee Less
Great driving Gruff and Copperhead, impressive!!
Finally! I've been waiting to see bronco!
I wish Icewave was in it this year I miss them. That bit just sounded badass haha
Love bronco but this will be a tough first battle.
What happen to tombstone? I miss the destruction he causes.
My picks this week are: Bronco Hydra Skorpios Valkyrie Yeti Gruff Hypershock Marvin
Here's imo on the fights. Hypershock is definitely in the mix in the round of 16. Looks like Monsoon is headed for desperado which is surprising. I'm not really sold on Copperhead. It seems rather fragile out there. Same goes for Yeti. I think Ragnarok's builders need to reconsider the overall design. I just don't think it works properly and the axe hinge is always exposed. Skorpios is round 16 material. Far as Hydra, I have a bit more positivity for it, but I'm wondering how its going to fair against the top bots. Far as the main event, I think Bronco can still make the round of 16. Bite Force continues to be one of the big favorites.
Petunia, Hypershock, Copperhead, Yeti, Valkyrie, Sidewinder, Hydra and Bronco are my winning predictions
Bronco, Hydra, Skorpios, Valkyrie, Yeti, Copperhead, Hypershock and Marvin are my predictions to win.
Go Bronco. I see a ring out in your future.
Hydra, Sidewinder, Valkyrie, Yeti, Copperhead, Monsoon, Bronco. My predictions for this week.
A must dvr watch, 20 minutes of action and 100 minutes of talk and commercials.
Yeti v free shipping will be a good slog!! Hard to call a few of these but gotta to for the British lads 👍 Monsoon to win. Also allot of people picking Valkyrie over Ragnarock... it’s got a good solid wedge on that... I think it could take some hits, pin Valkyrie and get some blows in.
My predictions: Biteforce over Bronco Hydra over Warhawk Skorpios over Sidewinder Valkyrie over Ragnarök Yeti over Free Shipping Copperhead over Crush Hyperschock over Monsoon
Interesting fight card for this one.
I'm most looking forward to seeing what Sidewinder is all about.
I think Bite Force is going to take Bronco. Also the fight I'm looking forward to is Yeti vs Free shipping. It may not be a big hitting fight, but I feel it will be a good fight!
Ahhh, Bronco. Let's see if we can't add a new notch to the battle box height marking. Kind of like measuring your child on the wall as they grow bigger.
Hypershock vs Monsoon is going to be very interesting. I really, really hope Bronco is in attack mode and not "wait and see... Oh we're screwed" mode.
Finally Bronco shows up! Tough break going against Biteforce for the first match.
These guys picking Bronco must not have seen the Witch Doctor vs Bronco fight at the ReMars event. Or any of Bite Force's fights last season. Bronco may have a chance but he's definitely the underdog.
does everyone seem to forget bronco is not good against small fast little verts losing to minatour, whiplash and witch doctor and biteforce is the best of them
Bite force will be launched...Bronco wins KO War Hawk will be flung around the box.. Hydra wins KO Skorios win judges decision Valkyrie wins Yeti wins Copperhead rips Gruff apart Monnnnnsooooooon wins Marvin has been bulked up and will win over Petunia
Escalated to see Bronco return!! Been a fan for long time.
War Hawk, Skorpios, Ragnarok, Yeti, Gruff, Monsoon, Petunia and Bite Force. Watch me be wrong.
I love bronco!!!!
This will be an awesome match!
Hope this is a great fight. These are both great bots. Best driver wins
This has the potential to be AWESOME! Just need Bronco to be at its best. I'm torn because I like both bots.
So happy to see bronco. Thought he wandered off to find greener pastures.
Looks like an Awesome Main Event !
This is so sad. Alexa, play Sausalito
And probably a messed up Bronco and a very quick battle...
YES!!! I was starting to get worried Bronco was going to be a no-show this season!! Better later than never!!!
I can't see Bronco winning this, Biteforce is too manoeuvrable. However it would be awesome if they did!
Unless I'm wrong, this is the first time these two are fighting (each other) in the new series!
Going to be a great battle BITEFORCE STRONG
I think I'll be backing Bronco for this one. I love me a flipper bot.
Few things are as satisfying as watching Bronco toss 250 pounds 10 feet into the air.
This should be one of the best fights of the regular season.
To all the people saying Bite Force will win because it has a better driver, bear in mind that Jamison Go and Donald Hutson are incredible drivers too, and Bronco still beat their bots. I don't think this will be a one-sided contest for either of them.
I love bronco but the driving style of bite force is going to be a bit too much for I to handle I think.
I see Bronco losing a wheel or two and Bite Force racking up some serious frequent flyer miles in this fight
Oof.... Bronco may get a good flip or two, but Bite Force and Paul are too good to get manhandled more than that... Bronco's an enormous bot with looooots of body to hit. This won't end well
Today NASA announced a test program demonstrating Biteforce can be lifted to orbit by the new Bronco Orbital Deployment system...
Interesting matchup. If Bronco can get underneath Bite Force, then the fight is his. However, if Bite Force can get to the wheels of Bronco, he'll force a countdown. Who's the better driver??
Excellent main event, but bite force is going to win. Bronco is going to get severely damaged.
It may sound odd to those who know my aversion to violence whenever possible, but, this I say 👍👍 to, because no living things get hurt, so, rock on.
In this i think bronco has more chance of Winning..if any other bot i go with biteforce.
This is gonna be a bloodbath. I give the edge to biteforce tho
🥰 my son was so excited for this fight
I LOVE Lockjaw's configuration where it was three jointed spikes up front and one in the back with six wheels, for me... That was the winner nomatter what came at it, and if Red Devil was in a 2v2 together, with that sawblade and rotating treads and weapon, there was not a single possibility they couldnt beat any combination of any configuration, and they will always be my top of the top hands down, but if not by fact and physics, then nothing short of a serious hardware and operator upgrade that kept the base configuration but juiced the FUCK to SHIT, would ever come close... If at all, and my heart will always hold out hopes they come out on top.. But nothing will ever be as intense as seeing the two of them go head to head as specified. Guaranteed. Hands down.
And watching this episode for the 3rd time
Death roll: 👍 Foxtrot: 👎
Danby's robot moves this season, confirmed. Holy crap the hype!
Like Battlebots but Bombshell's intro was very inappropriate. "Like germans on the beach at Normandy".
Hopefully foxic/Predator/Foxtrot works this time
that could gone better
Well it looks like FoxTrot is moving in this clip. That’s a promising start for a Danby bot

Chris and Kenny happily split the bill at the end of the night.
A Humane Society Public Service Announcement, offering animals for rescue.
Opening their wedding gifts & the happy couple got a duck. 💙🐤💙
The newest battlebot!
We just received the bill for the event
"Kenny, we're so thankful to have won DUCK's head on eBay. We are truly lucky ducks. "I don't think DUCK approves of that pun, Chris. It may take a quack at us when we least expect it"
"If I attach this to the base board of my bed..."
But wait, there’s more! If you subscribe in the next 5 minutes you will also receive this officially licensed Duck hood ornament!
It’s feeding time for Tombstone at the Battlebots Zoo and the dinner menu calls for DUCK!
"Okay, Kenny, we get it, you know ALL the words to I Want A New Duck. But we aren't starting a Battlebots themed cover band."
Chris and Kenny glorify in the success of their ritual to summon the mighty Cthulhu after hundreds of prior attempts failed. Their reason for summoning the dark one? Taco Bell messed up their order and forgot Chris’ kids meal toy.
Hey chris you happy to see me or is that a duck in your pocket?
A tender moment where Chris shares the largest subway sandwich he could find.

"Have you ever seen the back end of a duck before, Kenny? Awkward ..."
They went hunting, got attacked by a flock and came back with the beak of the papa.

This duck is awful skinny, so how would you cook it...
Kenny finally gets his order of Duck a l'Orange. Took a bite off the top before he remembered to put a picture on Instagram.
They went shopping and got more than they asked for when they said "You can bring me the bill."
Chris and Kenny "won" a duck hunt tournament.
Kenny and Chris are both somehow pleased with Donald Duck’s demise.
it's arts and crafts time with Chris and Kenny
I don’t think this is what they meant when they told us to flip the bird.

Worlds worst hair salon requires customers to stand inside glass box whilst the dye on their pony tails drys out.
And now, the two finalists for our Dinner Date with Tombstone.
Look bob, I told you before, it’s impossible to put pineapple on a pizza, once you put pineapple on it, it ceases to be a pizza.
Larry and Bob save time and get to the robot fights faster by skipping the salon and wearing their new potable hair dryers.
Fireman 1 "where you been"? Fireman 2 "Putting out Cheryl's she shed. I think it was struck by lightning"......
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present "Refman" our answer to Refbot. For insurance reasons their are always two. One in the box, one out of the box.... oops nevermind Tombstone took out Refman.
Not a second answer from me but my husband says “Dude, I thought you said there was going to be cake!”
Not sure why we have to wear these masks! I kinda like the smell of Lithium battery smoke!
1: I sent Gary in to get the haywire bot, but nobody has heard from him" 2: Which bot? 1: Tombstone 2:... 1:... 2:...So who was !: You. You were next.
Left : So there I was... tied to the bot... duct tape all over my body... and in it rolled... Tombstone. Right: How'd you escape? Left: Sorry, times up. Your turn next.
The floor is getting fixed. ...😂👍🏼 love you no matter what happens, just salty my predictions series still sucks 😜
Let's try shooting that scene again! Remember, more emotion!
Guy on left, "When bots burn they are hot!". Guy on right, "True story but my wife says Faruq is hotter!".
That moment when you turn up to the party in the same outfit
Need to weld the floor back together... Now get in there and move the scraps!
(In a very high pitched voice) Its human fighting time!!!
I thought the robots fought each other. Instead, they're fighting....us?
"When I said I wanted to be on BattleBots, I didn't mean getting chased around by Tombstone or Son of Whyachi..."
