🚨 Spoiler Alert 🚨 Chopped & Burned. ⚙️🔥
More bots. More battles. Watch #BattleBots 8p ET on Discovery and Discovery GO. Season Finale this Friday! ... See MoreSee Less
That was the best night of matchups, the highlight being Minotaur
My team is out of the running but can I just say I love this show. It's the highlight of day. I'm figuring either witchdoctor or minotaur against biteforce.
The best fight so far...
Best best im very happy
Lookin forward to the finale, boys! That'll be a FUN night!
Looks like they finally got used to the extra weight from that hammer saw. They might stand a chance after all.
Good job Jamison Go.
This, my friends, what BattleBots is all about. If this kind of fight doesn't get your blood moving, you might be a zombie. Get that checked out.
Best episode ever!!!
I don’t understand Sawblazes new weapon. I liked the one from last season more
The body spinners never seem to live up to their potential.
Front wedge and excellent driving.
Damn, you have to give SOW for working for so long but SawBlaze is just amazing 😍🔥
That last bit with SOW still spinning up in the smoke with his tie rods flailing was the thing nightmares are made of. It's like the Terminator. It will not stop coming for you until you are terminated! Epic fight.
One of the best challenge ever seen 👌
this was near complete domination of a very scary bot. hats off to team sawblaze!
Incredible that SOW was still spinning 🔥
In the words of Mauro Ranallo: MAMMA MIA!
Sawblaze was on steroids, i.e., even for Sawblaze.
that is what I call a fight! 😀
The late hit by Sawblaze was uncalled for, but they won on aggression and damage points.
Ash Benedict, Guy Shaffer, George Sandie Casner, Rebecca Casner, Kevin Deninger That last hit from Sawblaze came a solid 4 to 5 seconds after the buzzer. Not cool. Good fight, great strategy of not letting SoW get up to speed, just not cool dealing such a late hit.
Hey Huge, bad call You should have the win!
Over the moon for sawblaze want to see them win the nut now
AMA with Team Whiplash tonight at 6pm PT over at Reddit.com/r/BattleBots ... See MoreSee Less
Good luck whiplash. Your my favourite team, and bot. You guys deserve the nut.
Great job guys! That was a very entertaining fight!
One of my favorite teams !!!! 👍
Good luck next week
One of the best battlebots episodes, ever! Playing with fire!
Huge was almost indestructable,was a good fight lasted the distance
Great job, Team Whiplash! Staying in there, not giving an inch, really paid off! I think it was a solid win against a strong opponent! Good luck next week!
As much as I thought Huge was a funny troll of a bot, I’m glad whiplash still in there. I love that bot.
That next fight is going to be awesome!
Yeah l love Whiplash so much. Hope you get to finals this time, I don't mind you beating Tombstone. Good luck against the rest of the remaining bots
I still think huge won. Huge won damage (3) whiplash won control (2) but I think they split aggression since huge never really ran they would turn away to spin up and then went right back at them.
Once again, you have a date with destiny. Best of luck against Tombstone!
One of the best drivers around!!!
Whiplash has a awesome driver
Whiplash and SawBlaze favourites 😀
Question the first - How is the scoring for that fight not: Damage 3-0 Huge Control 2-0 Whiplash Aggression 1-1 tie Result 4-3 Huge?
This will he a serious fight! A bot with massive offense vs. a bot who can absorb damage.
Go all the way guys!!
Huge could've won.
I would have given it to Huge, tbh. Whiplash literally hadn't done any damage to Huge except 'try' to push them around. Lol wtf judges.
Hopefully next week will provide a better outcome against Tombstone
You ready for a rematch against tombstone?
Huge should have won.
Ive named the parents stauncha and birb. They look like a stauncha and birb.
🚨 Spoiler Alert 🚨 Post fight interview with Team Blacksmith. To see more exclusive videos like these please become a BattleBots Supporter (unaired fights coming very soon for BattleBots Supporters only)! ... See MoreSee Less
Great episode. Cool to see the bots clash. Super impressed with Minotaur beating Hydra, I thought Hydra was going to throw them out of the box. I think Black Smith does need to get a more aggressive weapon. A good bot like this should dole out the pain.
You have a FLAMING HAMMER, Al. USE THE FLAMING HAMMER. 🔥🔨
Love Al's ''Is that all you've got?'' during the match, made me crack up 😂 They're a great robot and great sport. For those complaining Blacksmith not using the weapon, they were never in a good position to hammer, the few time they were lined up looked like the hammer would come come down into the drisc which probably would have damaged their hammer.
"It just wasn't enough now" and recent photos from Al Kindle gives me hope that we are going to see a new blacksmith next year with increased offensive capability
This was Blacksmith‘s best season. You did good Al.
Blacksmith needs a massive redesign! But I want to see it back next season. Bigger and better
much rather have watched Valkyrie, Rail gun max, or Hypershock in this spot vs Witch doctor. I like hammer bots but I an nit even sure black smith was the best hammer in the field. i loved shatter.
Blacksmith nees to upgrade the bot now.. Rather than hammer they can try new thing
Its cause they had a Kyle.
hey blacksmith go hammer your brains back in place will you?
I really wish Blacksmith would use their weapon more. They are not agressive enough in my opinion. It would be pretty cool if the end of the hammer had 1 inch points on the end for added damage. Good luck next year!
Good fight, definitely shows how durable Blacksmith is
Reminded me of the old Home Improvement episode when Tim Taylor was standing up for his son at the karate studio "Is that all you got, BAM,......Better"
JUDGE JASON is a complete IDIOT! How the heck did he vote in favor of Black-Dragon! It's so obviously Lock-Jaw as winning; I'm not going to waste my time getting specific!

Mowbot VS This season’s champion. Give the people what they want!
So when is Tombstone coming to mow my lawn? I have a few trees out back that need to come down as well.. 😁
I welcome our new Mowbot overlords.
My lawn is a bit rogue, haven't done anything about it in some time. I think I need something more Tombstone-esque to lower my lawns.
Probably cost more than my house.......
How well can these navigate through water
Man - that’d free up a lot of time.
had one and it threw a rock threw my neigbors window
Moneka Kohler O'Mahony
It looks like Hammerhead from Robotica. XD
So mowbot in the arena when?
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!!!
I'm so excited can't wait to download the ep on google play!!!
Witch Doctor vs. Blacksmith was AWESOME! Best fight of the season IMO. Really pulling for them to win it all next Friday.
Whiplash !!! So awesome 👏
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.
I don't understand the judging in the fights. If someone is pushing you around you have to play defense until you can turn it around. Whiplash lost a wheel and no damage with Huge. When whiplash had Huge leg so to speak. Huge escaped with no damage. I was shocked that whiplash won. Is there something I'm missing in judging. I am a still learning so it's not sour grapes so to speak.
HUGE was ROBBED by the Judges! Huge was the only one who did any significant damage to the other bot! Also, Huge controlled the match just as mutch, or more, creating numerous opportunities for his weapon to reach speed.
Never liked SOW. What an satisfying defeat that was to watch.
I think im the only one who agree with the decision. Whiplash really never let up after huge took all the damage points and any other damage huge did was just because of how close the bots were. Im giving huge all 3 damage and whiplash all 2 control points easily and huge's aggression ended right after whiplash jammed them up and they were getting pushed around for almost the entire fight with only breath moments to breath probably because the ref was about to disqualify whiplash if they didn't back off after 30 seconds. Whiplash if the clear 4-3 winner
Biteforce is an amazing bot but with easy match ups the whole season.i would like to see it vs Hydra in this round.But no his spinner is too high for a flipper so lets put minotaur there.Also they knew how SoW will go against sawblaze.rematch atories are nice but SoW had an amazing season and that was unfair matchup.
Interesting how almost all 8 of the teams that moved on have some type of spinner as their primary weapon 🤔
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!
We need past seasons available on Blu-ray. I would buy them all in a hot minute.
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.
Awaiting next Friday night of carnage and destruction.
Well Huge isn't that good and didn't really deserve to be here so it's not that big of a deal
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.
Not a Huge fan. Didn't like to see Hydra lose but pulling for Minotaur. They're clearly dialed in now and I think they take it this year.
Would have liked to see how far duck got in the tournament...
All the fights were pretty good. Some comments. Hydra has the same flaw as Bronco. If you raise that flipper at the wrong moment its going to be bad. Glad to see Minotaur back to form. If somehow they end up winning the giant nut then they have to be the greatest comeback in Battlebots history. SOW had a bad match-up and I knew they were done before the fight started. I think the HUGE and Whiplash fight was hard to call. Despite the damage, Whiplash was on HUGE the entire time. Deathroll and Minotaur is going to be a great match-up for next week.
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
This show is NOTHING but commercials. Cut to one hour already 🙄
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!! ...

This is going to be an amazing championship. So many good bots!
Congratulations MINOTAUR! What an underdog season, never giving up!
I went 5/8 on my picks....missed on SOW, Hydra & Yeti. The rest of my bracket is looking good though!
Amazing bracket 😍😍😍
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!!
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!?!
Was there for the final round. Wave to the cameras!
Ah, the lesser-spotted interrobang, we meet again
Did I miss something about deep six? Why are they not involved?
My picks for the first fights in the round of 16: Fight 1: Bite Force Fight 2: Lock-Jaw Fight 3: Tombstone (rooting for Quantum tho) Fight 4: HUGE (rooting for Whiplash tho) Fight 5: Witch Doctor Fight 6: SawBlaze Fight 7: Minotaur Fight 8: Death Roll
DAMN, newfound RESPECT for SAWBLAZE!
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
Just here to top fan
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.
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
Using shaft collars are not the one 🙁
At least they tried.
Trolls on the internet vs real life
Will nightmare come back next season
Literally every comment: Bring back Nightmare
bring back NIGHTMARE
Can't wait to see Breaker Box next year
A fight with duck will be a funny fight.

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.

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 😂😂😂😂
Annnnd Reddit is down
