The Steel Magnolia's Season 5.0 appearance

The Steel Magnolia was a lightweight robot which competed in the final season of BattleBots. It was a silver rounded robot with no active weapon, It was quite fast, and instead used its rounded front as a full body hammer, relying on inertia to get the job done. It performed decently in competition, winning one battle by forfeit before being beaten by Dark Steel. The Steel Magnolia would continue competing after BattleBots as CrocBot to limited success until its retirement after RoboGames 2007.

Season 5.0

The Steel Magnolia's first fight was scheduled to be against T.D.M. However T.D.M. forfeited the match putting Steel Magnolia through to the next preliminary round where it faced Dark Steel. At the beginning of the match, The Steel Magnolia stopped moving and Dark Steel slammed it against the arena wall a few times before it was counted out. Dark Steel won by TKO, and Steel Magnolia was eliminated from the tournament. Post-match inspection revealed it was a loose set screw on the motor's output gear that caused the robot to stop moving.
