Botknocker-19 was a heavyweight robot built by Team Botknocker which competed in Seasons 3.0 and 4.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots, as well as the 2004 NPC Charity Open.

It was a cone-shaped robot with a spinning shell, whose armor doubled up as its weapon. Botknocker-19 did not perform well in competition, winning just two battles across four competitions.

Botknocker-19 also attempted to compete in Season 5.0, but it forfeited due to unknown issues. The team behind Botknocker-19 also built a superheavyweight named Hogzilla.

Robot History[]

Season 3.0[]

Botknocker-19 vs. Reactore

Botnocker-19's first ever opponent in BattleBots was against Reactore. Reactore was turned onto its side and lost by KO, allowing Botknocker-19 to advance.

Botknocker-19 vs. Little Sister


Botknocker-19 overturned and smoking in the corner.

This win put Botknocker-19 to the final preliminary round, where it faced Little Sister. Botknocker-19 started spinning its weapon and Little Sister tossed Botknocker-19 onto the top of its cone, leaving it to spin on its top for a bit. After Little Sister flipped Botknocker-19 onto its back around the corner of the BattleBox, Botknocker-19 started smoking and it was being counted out. Little Sister won the fight by KO and Botknocker-19 was out of the tournament.

Season 4.0[]

Botknocker-19 vs. Sgt. Spanky II

Botknocker-19's first fight in Season 4.0 was against Sgt. Spanky II. Botknocker-19 spun up rather slowly, but Sgt. Spanky II did not get to it before it reached full speed. It circled Botknocker-19, hesitating to hit it, with Botknocker-19 just sitting there. Eventually, Sgt. Spanky II went ahead and rammed it causing a huge crash. Botknocker-19 was slowed but spun back up before Sgt. Spanky II struck again. Sgt. Spanky II was knocked into the wall and was counted out. Botknocker-19 won the fight by KO and advanced to the final preliminary round.

Botknocker-19 vs. El Diablo Grande

One step away from the televised rounds, Botknocker-19 faced El Diablo Grande. Botknocker-19 spun up and El Diablo Grande rammed into it fearlessly, causing parts to fly and El Diablo Grande's drum to die. El Diablo Grande kept ramming into the spinbot, one shot after another, getting its tail all twisted up and its body dented. Eventually, Botknocker-19 stopped spinning. El Diablo Grande tried to get its tail under for a lift, but it was too bent up from all the hits. Instead, it just pushed the ex-spinner around until Botknocker-19 started smoking and was counted out. El Diablo Grande won the fight by KO and Botknocker-19 was eliminated from the tournament again.

Season 5.0[]

Botknocker-19 vs. Crabmeat (Forfeit)

Botknocker-19 was supposed to fight Crabmeat in the first round, but Botknocker-19 had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. Crabmeat won by default and Botknocker-19 was eliminated.

As the fight wore on, Final Verdict was able to disable Botknocker-19's weapon. With its opponent unable to pose a threat at this stage, Final Verdict chose to shove Botknocker-19 around rather than continue striking with its bar. Final Verdict attempted to push Botknocker-19 into the pulverizer, but failed as the timer sounded. Final Verdict won the fight on a judges' decision.
