Green Wave delivers the killing blow to Paminator

Green Wave rips out Paminator's ariel, immobilizing it.

Paminator's first fight at BattleBots Rochester R3 was against Green Wave. This fight started with Green Wave getting up to speed, and immediately hitting Paminator, knocking it away. Paminator then rammed Green Wave, however this cost it as Green Wave's spinning blade messed up Paminator's wedge leaving only two of its four wheels on the ground.

Green Wave then delivered a nasty hit which knocked loose the right rear corner of Paminator's top armor. Following this Paminator charged at Green wave with its messed up wedge again, this fixed it, however Green Wave then sliced into Paminator again, ripping the aerial of the machine, and immobilizing it. Paminator tapped out, and Green Wave won by knockout.

This loss put Paminator in the loser's bracket where it was next scheduled to fight Terminal Velocity. However Paminator was unable to be repaired in time, and was forced to forfeit the match. This meant Paminator was eliminated from the tournament, following this performance Paminator was retired.
