Eruption was a heavyweight robot which competed in every series of Diotoir's Wacky Rumbles. Eruption was known for its powerful flipper, capable of throwing opponents out of the arena. Despite the real Eruption being a powerful two time champion as well as runners up in the professional competition of Robot Wars, in the Diotoir's Wacky Rumbles competition Eruption has not done as well.
Robot History Edit
In its first appearance Eruption fought The Naked Rat, Meggamouse and Nuts. As the match began, Eruption flipped The Naked Rat over with Meggamouse attempting to attack the rat too. Eruption attempts to flip Nuts over, but fails to do so while Meggamouse chucks Naked Rat across the arena. Nuts span on the spot as Eruption tried to attack it but was mainly unable to, as that happened Meggamouse rammed The Naked Rat towards the other side of the arena causing Eruption to change focus. Eruption quickly flips Meggamouse before assaulting The Naked Rat, with Meggamouse assisting Eruption with the attack on The Naked Rat and soon Nuts joining in on the gang up. The two flippers decided to split up and attack the other competitors, with Eruption flipping Nuts and Meggamouse sending Naked Rat across the other side of the arena. Eruption then goes after Meggamouse and Naked Rat, flipping both before chasing Naked Rat towards the arena wall, flipping it over on its back before flipping it some more. Naked Rat is then rammed by Eruption and eventually flipped out of the arena, Eruption then presses the pit release and attempts to flip Nuts and/or Meggamouse out of the arena, only for Meggamouse to get in behind and chuck Eruption out.
Eruption first appeared in the Tag Team forming "Team Champs" with Megabyte as its partner. the team first fought Team Rambot. The two rambots charged towards different opponents with Tornado attacking Megabyte and Storm 2 shooting straight into Eruption. Eruption manages to get underneath Storm 2 and flips it extremely high in the air, landing back in the arena. Tornado meanwhile shunted Megabyte around the arena but is also slashed by the full body spinner who knocks it over. Storm 2 struggles to self right, reversing into the pit release and fleeing Eruption. Megabyte begins to push Tornado across the arena only to be attacked by Storm 2 who came in from behind and rammed it. Eruption tries to flip Storm 2 but is intercepted by Tornado, Megabyte quickly disposed of during this. Tornado is flipped by Eruption who is attacked by Storm 2 soon afterwards who in turn is chucked out of the arena by Eruption. Tornado and Eruption remained with Eruption getting the upper hand flipping Tornado about, but a fatal error resulted in Eruption flipping Tornado over the pit and driving in itself.
Next the team fought Team Disc-Truction. Megabyte turned and attacked the side of Last Rites with Hypno-Disc coming in to slice into Eruption. However as all three spinners were on the floor flipper as it then flipped the three spinners high causing them to bash onto the ground and spin wildly. Eruption took advantage on the upside down Hypno-Disc and proceeded to flip them out. Megabyte was toppled and couldn't self right as Last Rites gained mobility and bashed into Eruption. Eruption fought back and flipped Last Rites over and over again, this caused problems with its stability as its bar hit the ground everytime. Eruption flipped Last Rites into the sidewall but was hit as a result but a second flip managed to take off one of Last Rite's tires. Now crippled, Last Rites was bullied by Eruption who secures victory for Team Champ by chucking Last Rites out.
The final Head to Head the team faced was against Team Animal. Eruption quickly flipped Foxic over but is charged at and flipped by Meggamouse as a respone as Meggabyte came forth and attacked Team Animal. Upon self righting Eruption took revenge on Meggamouse flipping it about and almost flipping Meggamouse out of the arena. Foxic is bashed away and sent towards Eruption who flips Foxic as a response. Erupion gets underneath and flips Fioxic some more before charging towards the side wall and flipping Foxic out. Meggamouse was pinned and battered by the deadly spinner of Megabyte.
