Robot history

Season 4.0

Bait first went up against Critical Condition. Critical had a lot of speed and power, but as with all robots with high powered drives, was almost totally out of control. Critical hit Bait hard a few times, and Bait soon got its hook stuck in a ramrod slot. Critical would have won, had Bait been left alone, but instead Critical tried to ram it again and got stuck on the spikes. Bait either got freed, or its limited movement (like a dog on a chain), but Bait won by TKO, advancing to the next round.

Baitt then moved on to fight Chimaera. The robots circled each other, and Bait whacked at Chimaera with its hook, doing no damage, it eventually succeeded in hooking Chimaera's arm. However, Chimaera got unhooked. Towards the end, Chimaera did manage to flip Bait over, but it counted for little, and Bait got the 35-10 decision moved on to the third and final round of the preliminaries against Low Blow.

Bait went right over Low Blow, and chips flew. Low Blow kept sliding right under Bait, making some chips and scoring points each time. However, there was nothing on Low Blow for Bait to hook onto. For the rest of the match, Bait got pushed around and grounded by Low Blow, its low-speed whacks with the hook doing no damage. The judges scored a 24-21 decsision in favor of Low Blow and Bait was eliminated.
