Hugs & Kisses.

Hugs & Kisses was a heavyweight robot built by The Bot Dudes which competed in the 2009 BattleBots Pro Championship. It was essentially a larger version of Huggy Bear (almost 5 feet wide) with two vertically-spinning flywheels each powered by a Magmotor in the middle. Another unique aspect about Hugs & Kisses is that it was 6-wheel drive. It performed decently in competition, winning three battles, but losing two.

Hugs & Kisses was inspired after Huggy Bear got destroyed by Heavy Metal Noise during Season 4.0. The builder of Huggy Bear thought that a heavyweight multibot, with Huggy Bear grabbing opponents and Heavy Metal Noise damaging them, would work well, but he knew that the two wouldn't stand up to the heavyweight robots.
