The redesign of Phoenix for Season 5.0, based on M.O.E.'s chassis.

Phoenix was a middleweight robot built by Team Extreme that competed during the last three BattleBots seasons. It was originally designed as a box with an overhead 360-degree lifting/pounding arm, but didn't work as successfully as the team hoped, losing in its first match in both Seasons 3.0 and 4.0. After their second defeat, Team Extreme scrapped the original chassis, and based their Season 5.0 version of Phoenix on the previous season's M.O.E., fitting lighter wheels and a lighter drive system in order to push the heavyweight design down into the middleweight category. This version of Phoenix did quite well, defeating its first two opponents by knockouts before losing in a similar fashion.

Season 4.0

Phoenix's Season 4.0 appearance.

Phoenix's only match of the season was against Malvolio. In the match, Malvolio spun up and hit Phoenix's Lexan side, shattering it. This impact actually hit directly in the power on/off switch, instantly disabling Phoenix. Malvolio backed up to spin up again and hit Phoenix again, then stopped spinning and drove Phoenix into the spike strip. At this point, Phoenix tapped out.

Phoenix's wheel gets ripped off by Moebius.

Phoenix's first bout was against Goldie where it won by knockout, then beat Green Wave by knockout as well. Phoenix was against Moebius next.

The match started and Phoenix got the hammers up to speed before Moebius got across the arena. The hammers and the spinning shell of Moebius collided with Phoenix putting a divot into Moebius' shell. This impact turned Phoenix so the weak side that had been damaged in his previous match faced Moebius. The back right corner was hit by Moebius, which peeled the armor back. The gash was then attaked by Moebius and the wheel was ripped clean off of the hub. Phoenix shut down after all of the digging and clawing by Moebius took its toll as the receiver cable came undone. Phoenix lost by knockout.
