Scrap Metal was a lightweight robot which competed in Season 2.0 of BattleBots. It was a circular-shaped robot which was armed with a hinged wedge. It performed decently in competition, reaching the round of 32. Scrap Metal returned for Season 3.0 as a middleweight, but lost its first match to T-Wrex.
Scrap Metal's first ever match in BattleBots was against Misanthrobot. In the match, Misanthrobot went straight at Scrap Metal and Scrap Metal was moving around the BattleBox. Misanthrobot lines up close to Scrap Metal and starts spinning. Misanthrobot hits Scrap Metal and Scrap Metal comes dangerously close to the pulverizer as Misanthrobot looks on. After this, Misanthrobot started spinning its saw blade. Misanthrobot missed Scrap Metal and drove itself under the spikestrip. Scrap Metal was moving around the BattleBox and got itself caught on the killsaws as Misanthrobot was counted out. Scrap Metal won by KO at 1:16 and advanced to the round of 32, where it faced Ziggo.
Ziggo started spinning its dome as Scrap Metal travels across the BattleBox. Scrap Metal tries to line up a shot on Ziggo, but then backs off. Ziggo pursues and hits Scrap Metal's front wedge, bending it. Scrap Metal moves over to the killsaws in case Ziggo follows. Ziggo waits and then attacks Scrap Metal when it came back around the side. This impact rips Scrap Metal's wedge halfway off. Scrap Metal moves around a bit and Ziggo hits Scrap Metal again. This time the front wedge is torn off and the rest of the Scrap Metal is thrown to the other side of the BattleBox. Ziggo accidentally knocked itself into the killsaws. Scrap Metal is barely moving and Ziggo moves in and hits Scrap Metal again, knocking loose the battery pack inside Scrap Metal, who stops moving. This last impact also stops Ziggo from spinning and Scrap Metal was being counted out. Ziggo won by KO at 2:27 and Scrap Metal was eliminated from the tournament.
Because it got destroyed by Ziggo, Scrap Metal couldn't participate the lightweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
Scrap Metal's only match in Season 3.0 was against T-Wrex in the first preliminary round. As Scrap Metal didn't move due to radio receiving issues, T-Wrex delivered a number of hits from its tail. Scrap Metal was counted out and T-Wrex won by KO. This meant that Scrap Metal was eliminated from the tournament again.
- Wins: 1
- Losses: 2
