Las Vegas 1999
frenZy's first match was against Annihilator. frenZy won on a 8-1 judge's decision and advanced to the round of 16, where it faced BioHazard.

BioHazard won by KO and frenZy was eliminated from the tournament again.
frenZy later had a grudge match against Slugger. In the beginning of the match, Slugger started spinning on the spot and had frenZy crash into the front of it, slamming frenZy into the spikes. Slugger continued to spin faster and hit frenZy again, throwing it backwards. Slugger started slowing down though, which gave frenZy the opportunity to ram straight into the back of Slugger. Slugger bounced back on to the BattleBox floor and hit frenZy two more times with its weapon before being flipped over. This move broke the drive chain yet again, and left Slugger uncontrollably rolling into the spikestrip. A tapout was called and frenZy won the grudge match.
frenZy wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament.
frenZy's first and only match in Season 1.0 was against OverKill. Both robots steadily approached each other, looking unsure to attack. OverKill finally broke the tension with a blow to frenZy's top, causing both robots to flail their weaponry aimlessly as frenZy got its first hammer blow to the front of OverKill. The two rammed each other following continuous attacking from both sides when OverKill pushed frenZy onto the hellraiser. frenZy retaliated by pushing OverKill onto the killsaw, sending it flying and retreating. OverKill came back, however, and delivered a massive blow to its opponent who likewise returned the favor. frenZy then pushed OverKill into the corner and resumed pounding on its opponent, delivering four blows. This back and forth hitting continued for a while before OverKill ended the fight by getting a strong slam onto frenZy. This move decided the fight in OverKill's favor and won with a 7-2 judges decision. This meant that frenZy was eliminated from the tournament again.
frenZy wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament.
Season 2.0frenZy's first match was against Scrap Daddy HW210. At the beginning of the match, frenZy moved towards Scrap Daddy, who edges forward to attempt to hit frenZy with its spinning blade. After a few moments, while frenZy lands a couple of blows with its hammer, Scrap Daddy's saw blade makes contact with frenZy, and it completely breaks off, landing uselessly on the BattleBox floor. A few short moments go by and frenZy pushes Scrap Daddy up against the arena wall and spike strip, where it couldn't move. Scrap Daddy was counted out and frenZy won by KO. This win put frenZy to the round of 16, where it faced Panic Attack.
Both robots drove out, and Panic Attack was able to lift frenZy once before letting it go. Both bots drove near the killsaws, and Panic Attack lost most of its right-side skirt. frenZy began to hammer Panic Attack relentlessly, denting the top and damaging the drive train. After about a minute and a half of pounding, Panic Attack's speed controller had broken free, shorting out the electronics. As a result, Panic Attack was unable to move and was counted out. This win put frenZy to the quarterfinals, where it faced GoldDigger.
GoldDigger charges straight at frenZy and starts spinning its pickaxe. frenZy approaches and starts beating GoldDigger with its hammer. The robots move towards the killsaws and GoldDigger gets caught on them. GoldDigger stops moving and frenZy continues to hit GoldDigger with its hammer as it was being counted out. frenZy won by KO and advanced to the semifinals, where it faced BioHazard again.
The match lasted for a long time, with BioHazard having some trouble flipping frenZy because of its round shape. FrenZy continues to attack BioHazard, even as it's being pushed around before its hammer stops working. FrenZy attempts to back up for another shot but gets clipped by the killsaws and lands on its back, causing it to become immobile due to its hammer ceasing to function seconds earlier. frenZy was being counted out and BioHazard advanced to the heavyweight finals.
For unknown reasons, frenZy didn't participate the heavyweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament.
Season 3.0Due to being a previous semifinalist, frenZy was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 3.0, where it eventually fought Towering Inferno. Both robots went straight at each other and frenZy started hitting Towering Inferno with its hammer, as Towering Inferno was hitting frenZy with its hammers. frenZy later pushed Towering Inferno against the spikestrip and Towering Inferno stopped moving as its custom welds failed, dislodging the drive train. Towering Inferno was counted out and frenZy won by KO. This win put frenZy to the round of 16, where it faced OverKill again. OverKill won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and frenZy was eliminated from the tournament once again.
frenZy wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight royal rumble at the end of the tournament. FrenZy first hits Kill-O-Amp with its hammer then got flipped by Little Sister. FrenZy self-rights and retaliates on Little Sister. Then it was flipped by HexaDecimator but self-rights again. It then received a hit from OverKill, then bumps KillerHurtz. Next it attacks Voltronic until Nightmare intervenes, in which it starts pummeling Nightmare. Next it was attacked by Little Sister again, then GoldDigger. It temporarily chases OverKill before switching to GoldDigger. OverKill drove onto FrenZy but retreats before FrenZy could attack. HexaDecimator again flips FrenZy but FrenZy self-rights again. Then Little Sister flips it again, but of course FrenZy self-rights. Lastly it hits HexaDecimator and Nightmare at the same time before the timer buzzed. It was one of few robots still moving in the end but lost overall to HexaDecimator.
Due to previously competing in Season 3.0, frenZy was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 4.0, where it eventually fought SlamJob. SlamJob won on a close 23-22 judge's decision and frenZy was eliminated from the tournament once again.
frenZy wasn't finished, however, as it participated the heavyweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament. Its first target was Omega-13, then almost hits Phrizbee. It then goes after Towering Inferno. Next it tackles Little Sister and Greenspan. Then it strikes I-Beam, getting its hammer stuck in I-Beam, but they managed to separate. It then gets bumped by Omega-13 and pushed around by I-Beam. It managed to hit I-Beam again (and avoid getting stuck this time). It then seems to be experiencing some technical-difficulties as it wasn't mobile anymore, being tested by GoldDigger. In the end GoldDigger and Little Sisters were the winners.
Due to previously competing in Season 4.0, frenZy was allowed to skip the preliminary rounds of Season 5.0, where it eventually fought The Matador. frenZy had added a bar with a tiny bolt to the front of their robot to catch The Matador. frenZy started off strong, landing several hits on the top of The Matador and pushing it around on its stick. But halfway through the match, frenZy's hammer stopped working as the weapon battery pack had died and The Matador took the opportunity to deliver a huge flip to frenZy, As a result, The Matador was overturned and Frenzy was left on its side, The Matador managed to self-right, actually sending itself flying several feet into the air. frenZy was unable to get off its side and was counted out. The Matador was declared victorious and frenZy was eliminated from the tournament once again.
For unknown reasons frenZy didn't participate in the Heavyweight consolation Rumble at the end of the tournament, but even if it did and won, it still wouldn't have competed in the Heavyweight royal rumble since the rest of the rumbles were cancelled due to an accident with Nightmare.
