Ripoff's Season 2.0 appearance.

Ripoff was a superheavyweight built by Team Litewav for Season 2.0 of BattleBots. It was armed with a small wedge and a 28-inch wide blue saw. It didn't do well in competition, losing its only match against Atomic Wedgie.

Team Litewav also built HandsOff! for the first season of Robotica, 6 Million Dollar Mouse for the first season of Robot Wars: Extreme Warriors, and MiniRip for the final season of Robotica.

Ripoff's name came from its intended design to rip off chunks of the opponent and because it was literally a rip-off of the best designs its builder saw of other competitors. It was originally intended to be brought to Robotica after repairs were made but when the rules were revised, the team realized they were not going to be able to get the robot down to the new weight limit in time.

Ripoff gets a wedgie

Ripoff flipped by Atomic Wedgie.

Ripoff's first and only match in Season 2.0 was against Atomic Wedgie. Atomic Wedgie approached Ripoff, who was not moving, but its sawblade was spinning as the untested equipment was set to a higher channel than normal, resulting in no control over the robot. Following this, Atomic Wedgie pushed Ripoff over the killsaws, then drove into Ripoff's side, flipping it over. Ripoff was then pushed towards the killsaws, and Ripoff started spinning around, using its saw to drive on the BattleBox floor. Ripoff was then driven into the saws again, and this time, Ripoff was fully flipped onto its back, blade still dragging it across the floor. Atomic Wedgie finished off Ripoff by pushing it to the pulverizer, where it managed to a few hits on both bots before the time ran out. Atomic Wedgie won a unanimous 45-0 judge's decision and Ripoff was eliminated.
