Battlebots Wiki

Bite Force was a heavyweight robot which competed in the first four seasons of the BattleBots reboot, built by Paul Ventimiglia of Team Aptyx Designs.

Initially a tracked robot armed with a grabbing jaw to lift and even overturn opposing robots, it would later evolve into a wheeled vertical spinner. It also had multiple interchangeable setups - ranging from small blue "wedgelets" which could be mounted to the front of the robot to a large steel wedge could be mounted to the back of the robot to battle spinners. However, in order to make weight with the steel wedge, the top claw of the robot had to be removed and the little "wedgelets" could not be used. The robot also had high-power magnets attached to the tracks in order to increase grip. These magnets, however, had little effect on the floor of the BattleBox.

Bite Force performed well in its debut outing, winning the first season of the modern era. En route to the title, Bite Force defeated the legendary Warhead, edged out HyperShock and Overhaul, destroyed Ghost Raptor, and defeated the fearsome Tombstone.

For Season 2, the robot was completely redesigned with an asymmetrical vertical spinning bar instead of its grabbing jaw and ran on wheels instead of tracks. This is the version that Paul wanted to build for Season 1, but he didn't because he thought that there were too many robots with spinning weapons. Bite Force didn't perform as well in Season 2 as it did in Season 1, defeating Mohawk in the qualifying round and The Ringmaster in the round of 32 before losing to Chomp in the round of 16. However, Bite Force would compete in and win the exhibition rumble at the end of the season against Wrecks and Witch Doctor.

For Season 3, Bite Force didn't really change much externally, except for a chain guard after losing its weapon to Chomp last season. It even had the scars from last season. Internally, Bite Force was completely revamped as it dished out punishment in every fight it fought in, earning the championship for a second time.

For Season 4, Bite Force once again didn't gain many visual improvements except for having the battle damage repaired, the paint restored once more, and reportedly, more "knockout power" in its bar. Bite Force once again destroyed the competition, even beating Tombstone in a rematch in the Semi-Finals, before going on to win another championship for a third time.

Bite Force was originally going to be named Chompy, but it was changed when the team learned there was another robot in the competition named Chomp, which went on to defeat Bite Force in Season 2. They changed the name to Bite Force after the bite force quotient, which is used to measure crushing force in animal jaws.

So far, Bite Force has never been knocked out in its robot-fighting career, and has won every fight except a controversial judge’s decision with Chomp. Aside from its fight with Overhaul, every single win by Bite Force has so far been by KO or unanimous decision, and the fact that it has also won three Giant Nuts makes it arguably the most successful robot in the BattleBots reboot.

Ahead of Season 5, Bite Force was on the original list of competing robots but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Paul decided not to compete and sold Bite Force to make either an upgraded Bite Force or an entirely new robot for Season 6, thus virtually guaranteeing a new champion for the 2020 event which would ultimately be New Zealand's End Game.

On August 19, 2021, Paul confirmed on Team Aptyx Designs' Facebook page that Bite Force would not be competing in Season 6 due to BattleBots not addressing contract agreement improvements regarding team sustainability, which Paul has been trying to get them to do for the last two seasons. Paul did, however, confirm that Bite Force will be participating in a future event and that the three-time champion will remain largely unchanged externally, but will be switching to an entirely brushless system to improve functionality. Despite Bite Force's absence, team member Robert Masek will be assisting Jason Vasquez with Defender in Season 6.

Robot History

ABC Season 1

Bite Force vs. Warhead

Bite Force almost flips Warhead.

Bite Force's first round match was against Warhead. Bite Force was able to avoid Warhead's dome by skillfully using its rear wedge and pushing it around the BattleBox, eventually maneuvering it into the screws and pulverizer. After Warhead's weapon broke down, Bite Force got underneath it using its forks and lifted it up and over. The match ended shortly after, and Bite Force was given the win by unanimous judge's decision as it dominated the fight. This shocking win put Bite Force to the round of 16, where it faced HyperShock.

Bite Force vs. HyperShock

Bite Force pushes HyperShock against the screws.

This match did not start off well for Bite Force, as HyperShock was able to gain the upper hand early and pushed Bite Force into the pulverizer. HyperShock then delivered a brutal uppercut to Bite Force with its weapon, knocking it onto its back. Bite Force struggled to right itself without the top of its jaws, only being able to right itself with help from HyperShock. However, once righted, the match turned in Bite Force's favor. HyperShock's drum stopped working and Bite Force began pushing it around the BattleBox. Soon after, smoke began pouring from HyperShock's fried drive motors, and it broke down completely against the arena wall. Bite Force lifted HyperShock several times with its forks, attempting to jostle some life back into HyperShock, but it was no use, and HyperShock was counted out. Bite Force won by KO at 2:41 and advanced to the quarter-finals, where it faced Overhaul.

Bite Force vs. Overhaul

Bite Force almost flips Overhaul.

Bite Force and Overhaul traded blow after blow during their match. At first, Bite Force seemed to be the superior robot, as it was able to latch onto Overhaul for long periods of time. However, Overhaul wasn't easy to push around, as it often tried to do the same thing but with varying degrees of success. However, with less than a minute to go, Bite Force was grappled by Overhaul and took two additional hits before time ran out. Eventually, the match came down to the judges. Due to it being an extremely close fight, the judges went into the arena to inspect the damage done to both robots. After their evaluation, Bite Force won the match on a unanimous 3-0 judge's decision. This win put Bite Force to the semi-finals, where it faced Ghost Raptor.

Bite Force vs. Ghost Raptor

Bite Force lifts Ghost Raptor.

The pulverizer smashes Ghost Raptor.

Before the match began, Team Raptor modified Ghost Raptor with a small attachment to its forks which was designed to get in between Bite Force's tracks and rip them off. Despite this, Bite Force dominated the match, getting a decent lift. It pushed it under the pulverizer, which destroyed Ghost Raptor's head and rear, and it then gave Ghost Raptor a piercing blow in it's rear end with an arena spike, which made a hole. Bite Force then flipped Ghost Raptor against the screws, which caused one of the wheels to fall out of Ghost Raptor. Ghost Raptor was counted out and Bite Force won by KO, as it humiliated and ruined Ghost Raptor. This win put Bite Force to the championship final, where it faced the feared No.1 seed Tombstone.

Bite Force vs. Tombstone

Bite Force pushing Tombstone in the finals.

Bite Force had the early advantage, absorbing hits well and attacking Tombstone when it was able to. Midway through the match, Tombstone's batteries gave out, and its blade stopped. Bite Force continued to push Tombstone, scoring points. However, Bite Force also had issues, as its frame was warped, meaning only one track was working. Bite Force had dominated the match and eventually, time ran out and the battle went to the judges. Bite Force won on a unanimous 3-0 judges' decision and was declared BattleBots champion.

ABC Season 2

Bite Force vs. Mohawk

Bite Force attacking Mohawk with its spinning bar.

Bite Force's first match in Season 2 was against Mohawk. Before the match, Bite Force added rubber wedges to help get underneath Mohawk. In the match, the initial collision caused all six of the feet to come off, leaving Bite Force to grind away entirely with the bar. Bite Force kept on hitting the rear and sides of Mohawk with its spinning bar and at one point, it ripped off one of Mohawk's side panels. As this was happening, Mohawk's sealed gasket, which was covering its crushing arm, was causing propane to congregate inside the bot (igniting twice) and it stopped moving entirely. The match was paused to ensure Mohawk wasn't stuck under the arena barrier. When the match resumed, it was clear Mohawk couldn't move. Mohawk was being counted out around the driver's booth and Bite Force won the match by KO at 1:36. This win put Bite Force to the round of 32 with its No.4 seeding, where it faced the No.29 seed The Ringmaster.

Bite Force vs. The Ringmaster

Bite Force throws The Ringmaster into the corner.

The match started out very well for Bite Force as it was able to toss The Ringmaster over several times with its spinning bar. Unfortunately, Bite Force's weapon eventually stopped working and the match became a pushing match. Nevertheless, Bite Force was more effective with its wedge and continued to control the fight. Time ran out and Bite Force won a unanimous 3-0 judges decision. This win put Bite Force to the round of 16, where it faced the No.13 seed Chomp.

Bite Force vs. Chomp

Chomp hits Bite Force's weapon drive chain.

In the match, Chomp hit Bite Force's weapon drive chain, disabling Bite Force's weapon right from the get-go. Bite Force started to control the fight and pushed Chomp around before getting caught on its own weapon drive chain halfway through the match. Chomp took advantage by occasionally spraying it with fire, pushing it into the killsaws and attacking with its hammer. Time ran out and despite Bite Force's control for much of the match, the judges awarded Chomp the victory, ending Bite Force's reign as champion and eliminating it from the competition.

Bite Force wasn't done yet, as it competed in a rumble against Wrecks and Witch Doctor.

Bite Force vs. Wrecks vs. Witch Doctor

Bite Force and Witch Doctor decided to leave Wrecks alone and fight each other. After Wrecks got moving, Bite Force landed some hits on Witch Doctor, once managing to kick Witch Doctor into the disc of Wrecks, tearing off the left ram plate.

Bite Force and Witch Doctor clash with one another.

After some maneuvering, Bite force started attacking Wrecks from behind and, with the help of Witch Doctor, sends Wrecks into the screws. After some maneuvering, Bite Force kicked Witch Doctor into the air, putting the latter in between the two spinners. The two bots started attacking Witch Doctor, with Wrecks tearing off the self-righter and left front tire and Bite Force tearing off the rest of the rim. Soon after, Bite force struck the left front of Witch Doctor, kicking it upside down into the path of Wrecks' disc, which punts Witch Doctor out of the arena. Soon after, Bite Force struck Wrecks from the side, and and a head-to-head collision kicked both bots upside down. Bite decided to use the arena barrier to right itself, though it took multiple attempts to be successful. After taking out Shaman, Bite Force turned to hit Wrecks multiple times, causing smoke to pour out of Wrecks. Bite Force hit Wrecks once more and nearly got it out of the arena, but Wrecks managed to get back in. However, it was too late as Wrecks was counted out, giving Bite Force the victory by KO.

Discovery Season 3

Bite Force vs. Blacksmith

Bite Force hits Blacksmith with its spinning bar.

Bite Force's first match in Season 3 was an undercard match against Blacksmith. Bite Force came over the Blacksmith quickly, although didn't achieve much as Blacksmith had two front forks to counter Bite Force's front wedgelets. However, Bite Force ripped open a hole in the side of Blacksmith, albeit not too large, and Blacksmith countered by landing two shots with the hammer's flamethrower full blast to the top of Bite Force, but Bite Force was able to flip Blacksmith over with the bar. Bite Force continued to attack the side of Blacksmith.

Bite Force delivers a shot to the side of Blacksmith.

However, Blacksmith then fired his hammer onto the spinner of Bite Force, which resulted in the fuel line of Blacksmith snapping, however Blacksmith's hammer head was now wedged in the area between Bite Force's bar and motor. After Blacksmith retracted the hammer from Bite Force, Blacksmith landed multiple shots to the top of Bite Force, while Bite Force landed one last shot with its weapon before the bar stopped spinning for good. Blacksmith, after taking a shot from the killsaws, was forced into the screws by Bite Force for the final seconds of the fight.

Bite Force takes Blacksmith to the screws in the final seconds.

Bite Force won a unanimous judges decision, giving Bite Force the first win of the season.

Bite Force vs. HyperShock

The two robots collide.

Bite Force's next opponent was HyperShock, a rematch from Season 1 of the reboot. When the match began, both bots charged out at each other with HyperShock trying to get around to Bite Force's sides. Bite Force hit HyperShock hard and flipped it over. Before HyperShock could even try to self-right or move upside down, Bite Force came in for a second attack, this time ripping off the top panel and sending various internal components of HyperShock flying.

Bite Force's brutal hit on HyperShock.

With HyperShock still unable to move, it was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO after 36 seconds. This win brought Bite Force to a 2-0 record.

Bite Force vs. End Game

Bite Force overturns End Game with its spinning bar.

Next up for Bite Force was rookie End Game. The match started out well for Bite Force as they managed to get the first big hit that sent End Game flying. However, on the second impact, Bite Force stopped moving and its opponent decided not to strike again. Luckily, Bite Force got going again and landed another two hits, the later of which flipped End Game. End Game's weapon had stopped working so it was unable to self-right and was counted out, allowing Bite Force to improve its record.

Bite Force vs. Bombshell

Bite Force hits Bombshell.

Bite Force tosses Bombshell out of the arena.

The next match up for Bite Force was the 2016 runner-up Bombshell. In response, Bite Force had some of its internals swapped out in hopes of further improving its performance. When the match began, the first hit from Bite Force flipped Bombshell over. Bombshell was still mobile, but couldn't really drive anywhere and was near the arena barrier. Bite Force took advantage by hitting it again. With Bombshell still unable to attack in response, Bite Force struck it a final time, throwing Bombshell straight out of the arena, where it couldn't get out. Bombshell was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by a quick KO.

Bite Force vs. HUGE

HUGE knocks out Bite Force's weapon chain.

As Bite Force went 4-0, it was seeded 3rd in the Top 16, and faced the 14th seed, HUGE. The match started poorly for Bite Force as it was unable to get to HUGE's wheels and kept taking shots, eventually losing its weapon chain, and with it, power to its weapon.

The moment HUGE splits in half.

Bite Force began pushing HUGE around the arena when HUGE suddenly split in two (possibly due to damage from HUGE's previous fight against Icewave) and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO to advance to the quarter-finals and faced 11th seed, Rotator.

Bite Force vs. Rotator

When the match began, Bite Force was able to dish out a big hit that launched Rotator into the air. However, Bite Force soon started to lose parts of its armor with each of its attacks. The table soon turned though as Bite Force got a hit on Rotator that tore off one of its armor panels. Rotator's weapons continued to spin, but even they stopped working partway through. Rotator eventually stopped moving and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO to advance to the semifinals, where it faced 10th seed, Whiplash.

Bite Force vs. Whiplash

Bite Force rips a wheel off of Whiplash.

Bite Force destroying the wheels of Whiplash.

Bite Force went into the fight relatively unchanged from its previous match. The match was off to a good start for Bite Force as they had the lower wedge and threw Whiplash into the air. After a few more hits, Bite Force managed to damage the right front wheel of Whiplash, but this didn't cause much damage. As the match progressed, Bite Force tore off both right tires, leaving Whiplash to drive in circles. Eventually, Bite Force's attacks took its toll on Whiplash and they stopped moving. Whiplash was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO, advancing it to the championship finals, where it faced Minotaur.

Bite Force vs. Minotaur

Both robots collide.

Bite Force did not have a good start to this match as they lost the furthest right wedgelet almost immediately and were tossed into the air shortly thereafter. However, Bite Force started to get the upper hand as they were now causing damage to Minotaur, tearing off the left side rail. This damage

Bite Force tearing into the left side of Minotaur.

caused Minotaur to lose power in their weapon as the belts powering it had come loose. Bite Force powered down its weapon as its driver suspected that the motor wasn't giving enough power to the weapon. This resulted in a pushing match, but Bite Force was seemingly being outmatched as they were pushed across the arena by Minotaur. After a short while, Bite Force powered its weapon back up and was able to finish off Minotaur near the screws. Minotaur was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO and the giant nut trophy for the second time.

Discovery Season 4

Bite Force vs. Yeti

Bite Force in a tug of war match against Yeti, whose fork is stuck in between the wedgelets.

Bite Force's Discovery Season 4 appearance.

Bite Force started its next run towards defending its title with a match against Greg Gibson and Yeti. When the match began, Bite Force found itself struggling against Yeti's power at first before throwing it into the air. Yeti continued to fight, so Bite Force struck it again, taking out the chain for Yeti's lifting forks. This left Yeti with no control for using the forks. Unfortunately, this had a drawback for Bite Force as well because one of the forks got caught in its armor, leading to a pushing match. Luckily, both managed to separate and Bite Force delivered another hit that damaged Yeti's wheel. Bite Force soon began to have drive issues, but did its best to continue fighting, eventually tossing Yeti over, causing Yeti to land on one of its forks before time ran out. The judges awarded Bite Force a unanimous 3-0 decision.

Bite Force vs. Bronco

Bite Force grinds and tears off the tip of the flipper on Bronco.

Bite Force continued its run to the Giant Nut with a match against former semifinalist Bronco. Bite Force went in relatively unchanged but started off the match rather cautiously as neither robot wanted to make the first mistake. Bite Force then went in and started to cause damage to Bronco, eventually tearing off the tip of Bronco's flipper.

Bite Force continued its assault, shoving Bronco around and causing plenty of sparks. With Bronco unable to mount much of an attack, Bite Force pressed on, tearing off one of Bronco's anti-spinner twangers. As the match wore on, Bite Force then tore off Bronco's right rear tire, which limited their mobility somewhat. Bite Force then attacked Bronco, whom was briefly stuck on the floor, and pushed them into the arena barrier near the pulverizer. Smoke began to pour out of Bronco but Bronco was still fighting until Bite Force delivered a final hit. Bronco was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO with 12 seconds left.

Bite Force vs. HyperShock

Bite Force rips off the wedge of HyperShock.

Bite Force met Will Bales and HyperShock for a third time next and opted to extend the inner two wedgelets to hopefully have more reach and stay low to the ground. As the match got underway, Bite Force was doing well, giving HyperShock problems, especially by flipping it over but eventually Bite Force started to suffer drive problems of its own. Bite Force was still able to drive relatively normally and attacked HyperShock, whose front wedge was now getting close to coming off. Bite Force continued to attack, throwing HyperShock into the air and onto its back once more. Bite Force then tore off HyperShock's front wedge and eventually one of its wheels. Time ran out and the judges awarded Bite Force a unanimous 3-0 decision.

Bite Force vs. Monsoon

Bite Force sends Monsoon flying and bouncing off its own spinning weapon.

Bite Force aimed for another victory and was put against Tom Brewster and Monsoon. Bite Force started the match off aggressively by attacking Monsoon and throwing them into the air. Bite Force then struck Monsoon again, causing Monsoon's weapon to strike the arena floor and Monsoon stopped moving after it landed. Monsoon was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO.

Bite Force vs. Uppercut

Bite Force remained virtually undefeated and was now placed against newcomer Uppercut. Bite Force opted for its front wedgelet extensions that were bent and flat in places. Bite Force started off by throwing Uppercut through the air, but was emitting some sparks from inside so it backed off on its weapon for a bit. Uppercut remained mobile however, so Bite Force launched it again, this time sending Uppercut up on its weapon support, which left its drive wheels off the arena floor. Bite Force opted not to right them as they'd already broken the weapon shaft and several welds. Uppercut was unable to move and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO to advance to the quarterfinals.

Bite Force vs. Lock-Jaw

Bite Force clashes weapon to weapon with Lock-Jaw.

In the quarterfinals, Bite Force encountered Donald Hutson and Lock-Jaw in a rematch from the 2009 Pro Championship. Bite Force opted for its wedgelet configuration with two longer wedgelets in the middle. The match started off relatively evenly but Bite Force soon began to dish out the hits. Bite Force managed to lose one of its wedgelets but kept after Lock-Jaw, throwing them upside down. Lock-Jaw continued to fight, even as it was beginning to smoke and emit sparks from inside, so Bite Force threw them into the air again. Bite Force got Lock-Jaw under the pulverizer where Lock-Jaw struggled to escape but eventually just managed to do so. Bite Force dished out a bit more damage but with around 20-25 seconds left, Lock-Jaw wasn't showing enough movement and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO and a spot in the semifinals.

Bite Force vs. Tombstone

Bite Force's match in the semifinals was a rematch with Tombstone from 2015. Bite Force was equipped with its anti-horizontal spinner wedge instead of the wedgelets and as the match began, was able to knock Tombstone off-balance. Additionally, after the second hit, Tombstone was completely off-balance as it had lost a large portion of its weapon bar and the right wheel from the sheer energy of the hit. Bite Force pushed Tombstone on the screws, but Tombstone escaped and eventually stopped moving. Tombstone was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO and a spot in the finals for the third time.

Bite Force vs. Witch Doctor

Bite Force strikes and disables Witch doctor's srimech and flips it over one last time.

For this final fight against Witch Doctor, a bot it met and beat in a rumble in 2016. Bite Force was once again equipped with its wedgelets, but as the match got underway, started to lose them thanks to Witch Doctor's attacks. Bite Force pressed on and eventually caused Witch Doctor's weapon to stop working. Bite Force then flipped Witch Doctor over and took full advantage by attacking Witch Doctor while they self-righted. Witch Doctor started to have some mobility issues so Bite Force attacked them again, this time sending them upside down against the arena barrier. Witch Doctor couldn't right itself and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO and a third Giant Nut.

Amazon Alexa BattleBots Challenge

Bite Force vs. Icewave

Bite Force was one of 10 robots selected to compete in a live stream event in Las Vegas, Nevada to compete for the Giant Bolt trophy. Its first opponent at this event was Icewave. For this match, Bite Force went with more solid wedgelets up front. The match got underway and Bite Force managed to cause sparks. However, Icewave was getting the upper hand a bit and Bite Force was shoved around. Luckily, Bite Force got back on track and started to tear into Icewave, ripping of pieces of the wedge and the tips of the spinning blade. Eventually, Bite Force had ripped off both ends of Icewave's blade and much of its wedge, leaving Icewave pretty much defenseless. However, the chain on Bite Force's weapon came off, resulting in mostly a pushing match but this still favored Bite Force. Bite Force continued to push Icewave around, even getting it briefly stuck near the pulverizer. Icewave then stopped moving not long after and was counted out, giving Bite Force the win by KO.

Bite Force vs. Whiplash

Bite Force's next opponent was a rematch with Matt Vasquez and Whiplash, who it destroyed in the semifinals during the 2018 season, to compete for 3rd and 4th place. The match got underway and Bite Force was in control almost from the start as they started to damage the left front scoop on Whiplash. Bite Force then tossed it into the air and left that same scoop on Whiplash even more likely to come off. Bite Force then took off the left rear tire, leaving Whiplash with little offense due to the now slanted nature of its driving ability. Bite Force then tore off Whiplash's left scoop, leaving Whiplash with little options other than to try and use the lifting arm's spinner to cause damage. Bite Force refused to let up, tearing off more parts as both robots battled near the pulverizer. Whiplash continued to fight but its mobility was now severely limited as two tires were missing. Bite Force finished off Whiplash near the screws and Whiplash was counted out, giving Bite Force its 2nd win of the event. Despite this win, Bite Force was not chosen to compete in the championship battle and thus was eliminated from the event.
