As the two vertical spinners converged, it was Great White's flywheel that landed the heavier hit than Spin Doctor's drum, sending the American robot flying into the side spikes and dislodging the plexiglass panel protecting its side. As Spin Doctor moved away, Remora drove into the side and sheared away the rest of the panel, but the impact sent the featherweight hurtling into the side spikes and flying out of range. Remora tried to recover while Great White landed more powerful blows on Spin Doctor, delivering hard knocks to the drum, chassis and wedge but not causing lasting damage. Great White, rather, was showing signs of wear, as its flywheel began to slow down. With its opponent less dangerous, Spin Doctor charged in and set off its flamethrower, concealing both in a blaze of fire.

In response, Wild Beast threw Great White onto its spinner with its own drum; Great White hesitated as the latter attacked and immobilized Spin Doctor, only to graze one of the rotors of Wild Beast’s drone. Again, it was deflected and shepherded into one of the grinders by Wild Beast, the grinder throwing Great White into a somersault as it landed back on its wheels. Great White drove away, and retaliated with a few more powerful hits on Wild Beast, one of which tore the Chinese machine’s left-hand wedge clean off. It was again pushed, deflected and thrown into the air by Wild Beast; the two competitors slammed into each other again just before the battle was stopped prematurely after Rust Boar’s internal fire left the arena engulfed in smoke. The resulting Judges’ decision ruled in favor of Great White and Spin Doctor.

Great White didn't move much at first as it got its weapon up to speed, allowing White Tiger Guardian to make the first strike by hitting Great White head-on with its vertical spinner, although the impact didn't seem to cause that much visible damage to Great White. As the Chinese machine backed away for another assault, driving over Remora in the process, Great White made its first attack by smashing into the side of White Tiger Guardian, ripping its entire side panel off. Turning around, Great White then made another attack this time to the back of its opponent, the impact causing the entire machine to fly into the air and land upside down. With seemingly no way of self-righting, the Chinese machine was counted out and declared immobile. This meant that Great White could then enter the competition as part of the red team.

In the head-to-head round, Great White's reputation was respected, as Wu Chun would repeatedly select it to battle all available opponents, but most celebrities would decline the opportunity to battle it. Eventually, Zheng Shuang accepted the prospect of battling Great White using [[Cat King]], equipped with its vertical spinner, turning down a battle against [[Vulcan]] to do so.

While both robots powered up their vertical spinners, Zheng Shuang immediately placed the fog in front of Great White's team, obscuring their vision. Cat King capitalized on this by charging straight into Great White's wedge, throwing the machine high into the air, and causing Great White to bounce into the arena wall. Cat King held Great White in the corner of the arena, and targeted the back end of the machine, throwing sparks. With a bigger attack, Cat King then rocketed Great White into the angled plexiglass wall.
