Ocean Waves was a Chinese competitor robot which fought in Season 2 of King of Bots. Entered by a team of primarily young children with only one adult on the team, Ocean Waves debuted in the first episode of that season, being selected to fight Iron Scrap, although it suffered a destructive loss by knockout, which was enough to retire the machine entirely.

Ocean Waves with its team

Ocean Waves ran on a four-wheel drive, with its primary weapon being a rear-hinged flipping arm, mounted in the center of the robot. The robot boasted reasonable lifting power, although its four wheels were all externally mounted and vulnerable to spinner hits, without providing the robot with a great deal of speed, and its armor also proved to be brittle. The robot ultimately proved to suffer irreparable damage in its only battle, a discredit to both the robot's structure, and its team's ability to repair it.

Robot HistoryEdit

King of Bots II (Season 2)Edit

Ocean Waves made its King of Bots debut in Episode 1 of Season 2, where it was selected to compete in the third battle of Season 2. There, it faced the drum spinner of Iron Scrap.

Ocean Waves immediately proved to be the slower of the two, and Iron Scrap immediately darted across the arena, slamming into and inflicting significant damage to the front of the machine. Ocean Waves appeared to have difficulty moving forwards, and sustained more damage while being pushed back into the red corner by Iron Scrap. Ocean Waves briefly moved forward, while the briefly retreating Iron Scrap returned to tear a large chunk of armor from its right-rear corner. Ocean Waves shuttled back and forth, then sustained another blow from Iron Scrap’s drum which further damaged its front end.

Seconds later, the two robots collided head-on once more; Iron Scrap threw Ocean Waves upwards on contact, tearing another piece of armor off and immobilizing Ocean Waves completely. With its front end badly damaged, Ocean Waves was counted out, and lost the battle by knockout. Following Ocean Waves' loss, Emma Dumont visited the team’s young members, giving them hugs and motivational advice ahead of future battles.

"This is just the beginning for you, okay? You have your whole lives ahead of you, you’re so… ahead of everything for your age. You’re so great, you’re so smart, you’re so creative and amazing… and you can do anything!"
— Emma Dumont’s words of encouragement to the young Ocean Waves team

Ultimately however, Ocean Waves would not compete in any future battles, as it was not repaired following its destructive loss to Iron Scrap. Ocean Waves withdrew prior to the redemption rounds, and became the first robot to be eliminated from King of Bots II altogether.
