Chains Addiction was a heavyweight robot which competed in Season 4.0 of BattleBots. It was a pink and green full-body spinner armed with four swinging chains. It didn't perform well in competition, losing its first and only match against M.O.E.
The team that built Chains Addiction also built a superheavyweight called GoPostal which competed in Season 3.0, but was just as unlucky.
The name is most likely a pun of Jane's Addiction, an American rock band.
Chains Addiction's first ever fight was against M.O.E. M.O.E scored one slow hit with its blade before the fight was reduced to a pushing & shoving match. Thankfully, M.O.E. won the judges over on a 38-7 decision, scoring its first ever win, and advanced to the round of 128. According to Neal Muzzy, the driver of M.O.E, the team believed that there was a low charge on the weapon motor's batteries (due to an overly long technical inspection spin-down test right before the match), providing only enough power for the fight against Chains Addiction.
