ZiggZagg was a middleweight robot built by Team Ziggy that fought in the final two seasons of BattleBots. It was a very low, six-wheeled robot armed with a lifting arm. ZiggZagg had some success, winning three matches in its two seasons, but it never made it out of the preliminary rounds, unlike its teammate Ziggo.

Robot History[]

Season 4.0[]

ZiggZagg first fought MicroVore. ZiggZagg fit just under MicroVore's disk, preventing the spinner from damaging it. ZiggZagg ran wild on MicroVore, slamming it into walls and lifting it up on the wedge so that the disk hit the ground. MicroVore soon had an impact failure and was knocked out.

Moving on, ZiggZagg then dueled Chipper Monkey. The match began with the two circling and pushing each other before ZiggZagg got under Chipper and delivered a few slams into the spike strips. Ziggy's middleweight got stuck during one of its own attack runs, but managed to get free. Chipper Monkey got under ZiggZagg momentarily. The bots circled each other more, and ZiggZagg put Chipper into the spikes again. ZiggZagg got back under Chipper again and separated, but this time, both bots were immobile for some reason. Chipper Monkey then went up and over ZiggZagg and dealt a good hit on it, smacking right underneath like a wedge hammered into a stump. ZiggZagg looked a little hesitant and intermittent after that, but the match soon ended, with ZiggZagg once again right underneath its opponent. It came down to a 23-22 decision, with ZiggZagg taking the win.

For a spot in the TV rounds, ZiggZagg was set against Armadillo. Armadillo got in the first ram on ZiggZagg, and it appeared to be dead. After a few seconds though, ZiggZagg started moving again. ZiggZagg shot straight at Armadillo and went right under it. However, the control of ZiggZagg still seemed a bit intermittent though. Armadillo tried to shove ZiggZagg some more, but hit the wedge and went straight over it most of the time, only getting one good shot. The bots got stuck together from all the hitting, and had to be separated. When they were, it became apparent that ZiggZagg was immobilised. Armadillo kept attacking it for insurance as it was counted out.

Season 5.0[]
