Robot History Edit
V.I.P.E.R. 01 participated in Heat I of Series 5, facing the seventeenth seed Splinter in the first round. It started sluggishly as a result of its battery modifications, trying to back away from Splinter but getting caught by the latter's claws and sustaining blows from its axe. Splinter pushed V.I.P.E.R. 01 into Shunt, who axed it and pushed both machines out of his CPZ, before axing it a few more times and reversing away. It rammed V.I.P.E.R. 01 and pushed it into Shunt again, with V.I.P.E.R. 01 showing very little mobility. Shunt pushed V.I.P.E.R. 01 away from Splinter, again axing its top armour, as Splinter pressed the pit release button before pushing V.I.P.E.R. 01 into the CPZ a third time. There, it sustained more damage from Shunt as he and Dead Metal positioned it over the Flame Pit, with Splinter coming in to attack V.I.P.E.R. 01 again as the battle drew to a close. Despite lasting to the end, the judges' decision inevitably went against V.I.P.E.R. 01, eliminating it from the Fifth Wars.
