machines built in power image that technology is finally here the age of giant fighting robot has arrived two teams a world apart are about to do battle it’s time for the giant robot duel welcome to the steel mill so we are inside this venue in Japan originally designed to pour steel and now we are here to break it hi again everybody I’m Mike Goldberg expect the unexpected what you will see today is the first of its kind my partner robotics expert Sarna dari what will we see in these tools these are the largest heaviest combat robots on earth imagine being able to move around a car as if it was nothing the first giant robot in Japan kuratas the hip will duel against not one but two mega BOTS from Team USA and for more on the strategies we check in with the third member of our broadcast team mari takahashi thanks Mike I’ll be connecting with both teams throughout the duel to get their strategy seeing how they’re feeling emotions are high down here and it is tense but there’s also a huge level of excitement I mean this is a culmination of years of dedication and hard work it is gonna be a dope battle we’ll see you soon I’ve been playing giant fighting robot games since I was a kid it’s been the dream since middle school like making that science fiction come to life I never thought it was possible but like here we are what a little bit means another the more no boku no koto arienaiwa chi you do not want them like at all so the not apsara cannot occur are cheap India tomorrow giant fighting robots have been a dream for a whole generation of people really our goal was robot combat from the very beginning we built iron glory to fight a long range and stuff big guns on we really wanted our first fight to be huge so we went straight to the top and challenged Japan to a giant robot fight suidobashi we have a giant robot you have a giant robot you know it needs to happen we challenge you to a duel for the box cutter but I don’t know something man mmm aqui Nadia medical context of the graph Marshall won a yahoo car mechanic on display when they upped the ante to hand-to-hand combat we realized we actually needed an old new robot we saw this the American Way we built a heavier bigger more powerful and way louder machine to beat the snot out of the opposition that’s what we’re here to do that’s what everybody’s here to see there’s a huge amount of people who want to see this happen and to give it to them in their lifetime is insane two years ago megabox challenge to debauchee to a giant robot duel featuring iron glory Suribachi accepted the challenge but on one condition he wanted to fight than to hand combat so after years of research and development eagle climb was designed specifically to go hand to hand against karate judo bocce came back and said wait I still want a flat iron glory so we will feature not one but two dual suit of Ash’s kuratas we’ll fight twice tonight against two different beta all right here’s how you win knock down your opponent disable their robot and if for any reason their pilot taps out you take the match let’s check back in with Mari who’s with Team megabyte now you guys are about to engage in the first ever giant robot duel how are you feeling a lot is led up to this moment we’re really happy to be here and I cannot wait to finally get these robots to start pummeling each other I’m really pumped nice now let’s talk about game plan what is your strategy going in shoot the big guns as quickly as possible that’s that’s the name of the game here these things are the paint cannonballs do a ton of damage I’m gonna stay light on the joysticks and just try to unload as quickly as possible nice now looking at the kuratas robot do you see a weakness in its build yeah I would say everything anything else you want to add I would just like to thank our fans have been following us for three years now and for the iron glory our sponsors Autodesk fusion 360 a 360 and for Parker Hannifin for bringing us out here good luck to you guys keep Cavalcante say that iron glory embraces a western style of fighting big guns brute force heavy steel and design for the highlight reel knockout I mean right just look at those cannon that right arm can shoot a three pound paint cannon ball at 130 miles per hour they have the shoot bass and ask questions later kuratas Japan’s first giant robot miRs the Eastern style of combat designed to take down a much larger opponent utilizing speed agility in hand-to-hand combat capabilities kuratas definitely has the advantage of speed and paired that with his half-ton fist and I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that punch all right let’s check back in with Mari who’s with Team Suribachi megabots Orochimaru that’s no joke they were submitted at the na nanika ecozy autonomous cars in conquer total are nothing but a new home or bottle cutter organizer so lose your net no you are Doki Doki smash go and I’ll go to the doggy texture to you anymore Conor wouldn’t do anything no Ted has him attack although I took a look at Augustus iconi megawatt solar chimney nuka-cola Perry Moscow Oh bubbling lost 30,000 of them over RC toe miracle Scottish the matter no pee color series the most famous it’s time for dual number one iron glory versus kuratas let’s meet the box our tale of attack higher glory 15 feet tall when standing we six tons powered by a 24 horsepower engine it’s loaded with cannon ammunition and a missile launcher kuratas weighed four tons initially it’s been upgraded to six and a half tons most significantly the addition of a half-ton punching arm powered by an 87 horsepower engine it reaches a top speed of 18 miles per hour and now we go down to the battlefield on one side Team USA megabots incorporated with iron glory on the other side we have team Japan suta watching heavy industry with kuratas we are set for this historic first ever battle between two giant fighting robot science-fiction comes to life karate ironport care we’ve go it looks like iron glory is standing up while kuratas proceeds forward relentlessly he wants to close the distance as quickly as possible look at that left arm come on they’re looking for the highlight reel knocked out Quran is utilizing his speed advantage and it’s solar jobs like that here comes the megawatts crew let’s hope Madden gear okay he is out of the cockpit this was a stunning defeat 14 megabytes Matt seems to be fine as well [Music] that’s sir let’s go down to Mari she’s caught up with Sudha bar she not gonna hightail it okey creepers cuckoo God is the conscious master yoga now green dot Omega not sick you are you could reminisce topics economist car or conquer I’m buying up the brokerage or yoga Thomas online content out entitlements you know Cara – tomorrow I’m faxing what you’re taught ya night that yeah okay my stomach oh no butter though condos for sale I gather don’t let the go site let’s check out the dual one replay it looks like iron glories cannonball actually broke in the barrel it had no effect on kuratas now is trying to aim to gun simultaneously looks like he couldn’t line up the missile launcher in time whether or not that cannonball hit kuratas was just coming in way too fast and given how much momentum caranas had that punch was destined to knock iron glory down all right back to Mari who’s with Team megabox you guys that was insane are you physically okay right now the fall was pretty pretty tough as soon as I saw the robot coming in and felt felt it going over I grabbed my grab my helmet and tried to brace myself it was over pretty fast that battle is not how you thought it was gonna go how are you feeling about your defeat I mean they got in close did we do is gonna do you you’ve got you go prime coming in now it was built for this exact battle how do you think your strategy’s gonna change we have the weight advantage for the next robot I’m hoping the next battle goes better good luck to you guys back to you Mike so it’s one-nothing Japan Kurata Sun and Team sudo Bashi sorrow remember we talked earlier about how kuratas was specifically designed to break down or take out iron glory and it’s no surprise they utilize their speed advantage and a very precise attack but now it’s prime time time for Eagle Prime and this mega bot is certainly built for metal the metal combat I mean it has so many upgrades it can fire six times the cannonballs it has modular weapons and software upgrades right tell me about these software upgrades and what we can expect to see if you think about it like robot Anatomy iron glory had to manually control every muscle so one two three it’s a little bit slow right Eagle Prime however can actually have coordinated Jois movements and they have eight pre-programmed moves so all matt has to do is push a button and it will do an uppercut the Americans team megabots looking to even the score and we’ve got the best seat in the house it’s time for tool number two equal crime versus kuratas our tale of the tap and we focus solely on Eagle crime 16 foot tall when standard weighs 12 tons places heavy as iron glory and you want to talk about an upgrade it’s 18 times more powerful from 24 to 430 horsepower and don’t forget its bottom heavy 60% of its weight is in its base kuratas eagle pride here we go and there’s the horn karate spoke again taking cover behind that wall of barrels Eagle prime gets off the first shot but it looks like it breaks up inside the barrel the second shot is effective exposing kuratas to another attack Eagle prime crashes the barrels I bet you they can’t even feel that that robot is 12 tons and there’s a third shot how about this kuratas launches a drone they’ve spotted it they’re gonna try to knock it out and they make contact with it look at that smoke is pouring out of the drone a huge great hook on the top vehicle there and it comes crashing down Team megabots is really taking advantage of the 430 horsepower that they have that allows Matt and G to really control the arena with that arm Eagle pride kuratas engage in close combat a big body shop by kuratas keep in mind that steel fist is 600 pounds and another body shot try this looking to do damage Eagle primed counters with the cloth while firing a big shot that connect and another equal product targeting the midsection of carotid Oh check this out Eagle Prime using that cannon as a battering ram targeting the area on kuratas that has a lot of sensitive electronics Eagle Prime continuing to do damage with that cannon these armored panels are being torn off of carotid wait a second the robots now appear to be stuck so kuratas and Eagle prime are basically stuck in fighting terms they’re stuck in the clinch right it looks like they hit the e stop which immediately shut down both robots so now it’s time to reset retool and continue the duel all right let’s check back in with Mari who’s with Kurata son don’t worry my style your quickie must stop so come on our daughters I love Ritter Estonia took with it the kick or so to begin our our request was clear don’t mess again I say let’s take a look at the duel to replay after a cannon malfunction equal pride gets off a beautiful shot you can see Kuroda’s armor took a hell of a beating from the opening shot kuratas counters with the distraction technique utilizing a drone but that doesn’t stop Eagle Prime from delivering a massive blow to the tower of cars leaving a trail of destruction in the arena [Music] kuratas moved in and delivered a punch of its own slamming into that front grille of Eagle Prime as the two robots squared off point-blank equal prime using the Canon anyway a can to get an advantage but these robots are locked together and had to be reset let’s check back in with Mari who’s with team mega box that is how it’s done you grab them you beep yeah you guys had some crazy punches I for all of us who don’t get to be in that what is it what is that like yeah it’s pretty incredible you’re getting rocked around it’s a little bit scary as you’re kind of anticipating am I gonna fall over if I grab them or if I push too hard so there’s a lot to think about kind of how you’re landing those tacks only live vicariously through you guys now what did you think of karate as a secret weapon when I saw it launched I just remember yelling at ghee saying there’s a drone there’s a drone and I really wasn’t prepared to see things coming from the sky but my first reaction was just like get the claw try to swat it looks like I hit it but it ended up on the cockpit anyways no I see there’s a weapon swap going on what can we expect from Team megabytes so I think we realized that once we get in close the cannon isn’t that effective I was trying to use it as a battering ram after we were kind of entangled there but I think we need to focus on something that can deal a little more damage up close hey it’s time for some like good old-fashioned American melee I think that’s where this is going there you go very excited to see you guys good luck thank you both robots are now reset and ready Eagle Prime karate here we go karate getting into position turning slightly and Eagle Prime takes the lead here knocking over barrels with that powerful chainsaw that’s a four foot forty horsepower chainsaw and it was originally designed to cut through rock we’ll see how kuratas attempts to deal with this attack those six barrels can fire up to 2,000 rounds per minute that could easily take out Eagle Crimes cameras Wow equal prime his grab the fighting truck it’s all coming down poles kuratas keeps unloading on Eagle prime relentlessly my god what oh that’s awesome hence our that truss gets tossed to the side Eagle prime approaches garages and now it appears a shoving match is taking place that chainsaw is now activated [Music] taking it down systematically man you’re coming out right now what are you worried about your dental products expert that’s why I’m scared nothing what are you talking about candy get the finish right here Wow not here I have never seen anything like this the chainsaw still eating away at kuratas is shortened [Music] and we have a winner cheap megabytes Eagle cry that’s how it’s done baby [Applause] you know it’s really amazing the turn of events that has happened here kuratas came out so strong in that first bite toppling iron glory almost immediately but then the momentum shifted to teen megabytes Eagle Prime went on the aggressive utilized that chainsaw for an outstanding finish here comes karate sign showing great sportsmanship bitch smiles all around a true class act history has been made [Music] [Music] to war the opponents in the first-ever giant robot duel USA versus Japan team megabots how are you feeling pretty good pretty good obviously things went pretty well for us there we’ve got an awesome team I wanted to thank everybody who helped put this together it’s crazy it was this amazing experience both fights I think we’re just on this world it’s what we’ve been waiting for this is it [Laughter] what does the future hold I think it’s time to make this a sports league I think it’s time to get some rules some weight classes bring this show on the road let’s do it good fight worth it thank you thank you back to you Mike so when it is all said and done eagle tribe wins the goal at this first-ever giant robot fight first Sara Naderi at mari takahashi this is Mike Goldberg saying so long from the steel mill in Japan [Music] you you

  1. Someone needs to create a choreographed WWE with fighting robots, talking full scripts. Anime-style. That's the way to go with this stuff. Plus, design them so that armour can fly off!

  2. On one hand I want to love this, because giant robot fights. But the fights were just so lame. It probably would've been cool if they were just authentic about it all and it came down to just the engineering involved and a bunch of geeks having a good time. But going ham on the extreme serious presentation really misrepresented the combat that was gonna happen. Did they add CGI when the lighting rigs got torn down? Looked like it.

    Let's restart the concept once corponations are willing to funnel trillions of dollars into the sport (and when, for some reason, you can't just use a tank).

  3. Well the japanese bot would certainly win the contest if it was for looks. That big Megabot (sorry to say) looks more like a weird tractor than like a robot.

  4. The girl being so enthusiastic was hilarious "Did you feel like you were one with the robot?" "I can only live vicariously through you guys!"

  5. Ide like to enter my mini excavator in this competition and be like "yeah this is my robot, it has 1 arm" then just proceed to rip them apart. The 2 american machines were obviously skidsteer undercarriages with a robot looking top added on.

  6. what a horse poo show, 99% is talking, and the 1% fighting is 0.1% moving, and 0.9% standing still.. lolz what a joke!.
    old dozer VS a old farm traktor…

  7. This looks so economically unsustainable, each robot probably cost a few hundred grand. And they still suck. Battlebots and Robot Wars are both better. The smaller bots are more innovative and realistic.

  8. "A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer— capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically."
    What can these "Giant Robots" do automatically ?

  9. THAT WAS GOING DOWN 1.5 YEARS AGO!!!!!
    WHY ONLY NOW YOUTUBE?!!!!!

    Anyways, fatal flaw of the jap team was to not ram the big eagle in full throttle. The mech did not do what was designed to do, ramming. The murican mech was double the weight and bottom heavy but still tall. Just ram the top to break the "legs" or knock it over

  10. The ammount of Pacific Rim references is so high Youtube recommends a video about how to make miniature ruined and flooded skyscrapers after this

    …ˢˢˢˢʰʰʰʰ… ᵗʰᵉʳᵉ ᵃʳᵉⁿ'ᵗ ᵐᵃⁿʸ ᵇʸ ᵗʰᵉ ʷᵃʸ

  11. I know I shouldn't be disappointed in the engineers for making pathetic robots like this but I kinda still have to be because of all the hype from video games.

  12. the whole thing seemed staged and not a real fight. why on earth would a robot not struggle when it is being attacked. kuratas didn't even move a hand. how stupid!

  13. Way to much talking, hideous and unnecessary acting from the commentators in the last act, dumb and unnecessary sparkly special effects in the last act as well.
    Other than that, the robots moved slowly, and ended up standing still much of the time. Although these things wasn't really much they could do about.
    Anyhow, first fight was pretty awesome, even if it was over just like that.
    Second battle was okay, but the standstill kinda ruined it.
    Third battle seemed more promising, until the sparkle effects and commentator acting was brought in. Just absolutely unnecessary.
    It saddens me how badly these fights was executed in post. And Jesus Christ Mike Goldberg, can you shut up for like, FIVE SECONDS?!?

  14. The last fight was really unfair. I mean, America is getting 2 bots, and one of their bots has a chainsaw that just tears stuff apart like that? And nothing Kuratas could do could really dent the second American bot.

  15. the chainsaw was retarded. Just ruined everything. Their dorkbot was twice as big and had 5 times as much horsepower. Then they just ruined that guy's thing.

  16. You know whats really ironic. This is a pretty good metaphor for WW2

    Japanese Ambush in the first round
    USA uses superior resources and ingenuity to curb stomp them.

  17. I've been on youtube as far as I can remember.. how have I NOT heard of giant robots fighting?!

    [EDIT] Its not as good.

  18. Honestly this was boring af, the only way to make this giant robot fight awesome is to make it remote controlled and fight fearlessly without fearing the danger for the operator
