Unrelated to the heavyweight from the 2015 ABC Reboot, Bull Dog
Bulldog was a lightweight robot which fought in the final three seasons of BattleBots. It was a Lexan box-shaped robot originally armed with a wedge, then replaced with a swinging spiked hoop for Season 4.0 before being replaced with a wedge and three spikes for Season 5.0. It performed decently in competition, winning fights in all three seasons of competition and reaching the round of 32 in Season 4.0.
The team that built Bulldog still competes in RoboGames each year in the lightweight class.

Bulldog won the match by KO and advanced to the TV rounds, where it faced Das Bot. Das Bot won the match by KO and Bulldog was eliminated from the tournament again.
