Big Potato

Big Potato was a robot from Boston, USA, which competed in Season 1.5, the debut of This is Fighting Robots. It entered the competition as a 'challenger', but after not making it past this stage, Big Potato was never showcased in any main episode.


Big Potato was a two-wheel driven robot, armed with a broad front wedge, and a vertical spinning disc for armament. Big Potato could run inverted, although it would not be as effective when upside-down, so Big Potato self-rights by driving into the arena walls. Its wedge is one of the most heavily armored in This is Fighting Robots, with its spinner also boasting high top speeds. Its wheels were exposed at the sides, although the size of Big Potato's wedge made these hard to reach.

This is Fighting Robots (Season 1.5)

In order to join the competition during its later stages, the 'challenger' Big Potato attempted to impress the four celebrities for a place on their team, but initially, no celebrity chose South American Eagle God. After Big Potato failed to appear in the televised broadcast, it can be presumed that no celebrity selected Big Potato for their team.

In a Youko VIP-exclusive battle, Big Potato entered the arena to battle fellow challengers Spectre and South American Eagle God.
