Robots Battle to the death in Japan

I especially like the robot in the first match which defeated its competitor by launching a huge detachable balloon-shaped head. Looks kind of cute!

Robots from around Japan have been competing for the title strongest two-legged robot in the world. Around 25 powerful world-class competitors gathered for the Robo-One ground championships at Tokyo's convention centre. The spectacle strikes a close resemblance to a real boxing or mixed martial arts match as robots trade jabs, dodge punches and eventually knock out opponents with a crushing blow.
