In Maidstone, Meggamouse was drawn against Iron-Awe 5 and lost straight away. It was then drawn in a losers' melee against Ripper Evo and Tilly Evo but Meggamouse and Tilly's weapons didn't work so Ripper won easily.
In 2012, Meggamouse placed fourth overall in the Roaming Robots Winter Tour, which was won overall by Ripper.
Away from the Robot Wars live events, Meggamouse also competes at Robots Live! events. In the UK Championship in 2016, Meggamouse threw Ka-Pow! out of the arena to win its first-round battle.
Meggamouse competed in the first live event of the new Robot Wars at Barnsley in February 2013. Meggamouse has been a regular competitor at live events since, albeit with limited success outside of Tag Team matches.
Meggamouse participated in the Robot Wars World Championship 2015 in Colchester, where it fought Iron-Awe 7, Nuts, and Weird mAlice. Meggamouse started well, repeatedly flipping Nuts while Iron-Awe 7 threw Weird mAlice out of the arena, but unfortunately, Meggamouse drove into the pit and eliminated itself in the first round.
Meggamouse made its 2016 debut at the first show in Manchester, where it outlasted Kill-E-Crank-E, which pitted itself, but Meggamouse was pitted by Crushtacean after a close match. At the Guildford event in June, Meggamouse achieved its personal best, placing third at the event, which was won by Ripper. Along the way, Meggamouse defeated Beast, threw Stinger out of the arena, and won against Behemoth in the third-place play-off to earn this title.
Robot Wars 2017 Edit
Meggamouse competed in Episode 5, where it faced a tough draw against the destructive bar spinner of the previous series' runner-up, Carbide, alongside fellow newcomers Crackers 'n' Smash and Trolley Rage. In the pits, Meggamouse and Charles were surrounded by replica wedges of swiss cheese, which the team pretended to eat in their hero shot. When 'activate' sounded, Meggamouse targeted the lighter half of the clusterbot, Crackers, bumping it onto the flame pit where the green robot became stuck. Meggamouse's own clusterbot, Charles was instantly immobilised by the first blow it sustained from Carbide. Meggamouse closed in on Carbide while it was attacking Charles, but missed, and became trapped between the arena spikes. After this, Meggamouse used the tactics that its predecessor Mighty Mouse relied upon, and avoided the combat, only engaging in light contact with Crackers and the immobile Trolley Rage. Meggamouse aimed for the arena tyre, and the pit descended. It attempted to flip Crackers, but could not get underneath it, and missed with its attack. Finally, Meggamouse summoned up the courage to attack Carbide, but flipped too early and turned itself over. Although it quickly self-righted, this gave Carbide the opening to close in and shatter Meggamouse's wheel. Meggamouse was still functional internally, and it span in circles, firing its flipper, but as it could not move beyond the space of its own circumference, Meggamouse was deemed immobile, and it was counted out. Smash also pushed the long-beaten Charles into the pit. Meggamouse was eliminated from the competition in the first round, alongside Trolley Rage.
