Minnesota Mangler was a middleweight robot which competed in the final two seasons of BattleBots. It was a silver full-body spinner with two large steel teeth.. It performed decently in competition, both winning and losing two fights.
Minnesota Mangler's only opponent was Heavy Metal Noise. Minnesota Mangler spun up in place, and Heavy Metal Noise charged across the arena and drove right into it. This impact resulted in a rapid banging, accompanied by many orange steel-sparks. Heavy Metal Noise then backed off to spin up again, then rammed back in for another few seconds of rapid impacts before one of its discs broke off in a spectacular fashion, bouncing off the floor, flying about 40 feet through the air all the way across the arena, bouncing off the floor again, and up hard into the wall. Minnesota Mangler, following this, seemed to have been impaled under the spike strips, but got free. Minnesota Mangler was no longer spinning however. Heavy Metal Noise then charged after Minnesota Mangler with its functioning disc, making more sparks in the process. Minnesota Mangler drove sluggishly across the arena for the rest of the bout, leaving Heavy Metal Noise to deal more damage. It won on a 36-9 decision, and Minnesota Mangler was eliminated.
It defeated Plowbot in its first battle, where it then faced Dark Shredder. When the match started, Dark Shredder ran across the BattleBox before Minnesota Mangler started spinning. Dark Shredder got a hit on Minnesota Mangler as it attempted to run away. Eventually, Minnesota Mangler went to the left and Dark Shredder went to the right. After this, Minnesota Mangler started spinning again. Minnesota Mangler managed to catch the side of one of the drum holes and blew out Dark Shredder's side bearing. Since the drum was electrified, the 175 Amp fuse blew and the drum stopped moving. The broken bearing case went between the wheel and the frame and prevented Dark Shredder from moving one side of the bot. After this, Dark Shredder was being counted out and Minnesota Mangler won by KO.
It soon faced TriDent. TriDent won by KO and advanced to the TV rounds again, eliminating Minnesota Mangler.
