Battle Royale With Cheese is a heavyweight robot that competed in the third season of the BattleBots reboot on Discovery and Science. It was a robot themed to a cheeseburger with a pair of interchangeable spinning bars (one themed to look like a piece of bacon, and another themed to look like a pickle). Battle Royale also had a self-righting mast themed to resemble a toothpick with an olive on it.
Battle Royale With Cheese was also accompanied by a weaponless minibot named Shorter Pounder which was themed after a cheeseburger as well. The original name for Battle Royale with Cheese was Bacon Double Slamburger but since Denny's owned the trademark for the name, the robot's name was changed.
Robot History Edit
Battle Royale with Cheese was first up against Tantrum and was built in what little time the team had before the fight. Unfortunately, the robot's weapon gear box broke and was unable to be fixed in time. The match was off to a very poor start as Battle Royale with Cheese was without a weapon and got immediately flipped over by its opponent, ending up on the screws on its side of the arena. After a few seconds, Battle Royale with Cheese got a break and was righted by its opponent but still couldn't get its weapon up to speed. Finally, after some maneuvering, Battle Royale with Cheese did manage to achieve some speed on its weapon but it was quickly stopped by its opponent, whom then started to control the fight by maneuvering it around the arena with its spatula weapon. Time ran out and Tantrum won on a unanimous 3-0 judges decision, advancing it to the next stage of the tournament.
Battle Royale With Cheese's next fight was against HyperShock, which had previously been decimated by Bite Force. For this fight, Battle Royale With Cheese opted to include its minibot Shorter Pounder. The match started off poorly for Battle Royale with Cheese as HyperShock quickly dispatched of the minibot in a single hit and Battle Royale With Cheese still couldn't get its weapon to top speed due to the weapon speed controller frying sometime during the fight. This allowed its opponent to deliver some hits, the last of which knocked out Battle Royale With Cheese under the pulverizer. Battle Royale With Cheese was counted out as HyperShock continued to attack it, eventually getting stuck on top, giving HyperShock the win by KO.
