Low Blow was a lightweight robot that competed in the final two seasons of Comedy Central BattleBots. It was a flat, wide dome-shaped robot armed with a small spinning saw blade on top. The robot would have opponents drive up its dome and then grind away at them with its saw. Low Blow did surprisingly well, reaching the Round of 16 in Season 4.0. The team that entered Low Blow also entered a middleweight version called Mow-Blow in Season 5.0.

Low Blow got under Toe-Crusher and Low Blow's saw blade made contact with Toe-Crusher, producing sparks in the process. Toe-Crusher briefly got under Low Blow, but Low Blow ran away before it could be pushed around the BattleBox. As both robots were fighting each other, Toe-Crusher backed up onto the killsaws and was sent flying across the BattleBox. Toe Crusher got its wedge under Low Blow and pushed it across the BattleBox floor, but Low Blow slipped away before they reached the arena wall.

Both robots get hit by the pulverizer.

Toe-Crusher got under Low Blow again and got stuck on a seam on the BattleBox floor. Low Blow circled around and tried to get under Toe-Crusher, but Low Blow only drove up onto Toe-Crusher's wedge and Toe-Crusher began pushing Low Blow towards the pulverizer. Low Blow got hit by the pulverizer four times and Low Blow tried to run away. Toe-Crusher attempted to push Low Blow back under the pulverizer, but just drove on top of Low Blow. Toe-Crusher retreated before the pulverizer could fall, and Low Blow proceeded to drive under the pulverizer again and took a shot right on its sawblade. Toe-Crusher came in again and got under Low Blow this time, but only managed to push Low Blow out of the way. As Toe-Crusher left Low Blow, the pulverizer fell on Toe-Crusher, breaking the antenna and Low Blow escaped to the center of the BattleBox. Toe-Crusher turned a bit, then stopped moving again as it was out of the remote control's range and thus was counted out. Low Blow won the fight by TKO at 2:37 and advanced to the Round of 16, where it faced Carnage Raptor.
