The Mega Robot


It is the dawn of a new age. Humankind is testing its limits in different spectrums of life. In the world of technology, new doors of development are opening. The technology has transmuted all fields of experience uniquely. What man was imagining has somewhat been achieved with the help of technology via a mega robot.

Decades ago, humans were thinking giant machines are fighting, and this has come true because now is the age of battle giant robots. Since childhood, people have been playing robot fighting games. But In Japan, two teams set the robot to fight in a steel mill, which was the first live original robot fight. Consequently, the robots used for fighting were the most massive combat robots.

The Rules 

The mega robot combat involves robots that are controlled with a remote. So the competitors control the robot to fight in the fight arena. The robot loses the game when it loses its power. Which may happen due to damage imposed by the other mega robot. Therefore, in the robot fight, one robot is pushed to a position where the other cannot make any move. Also, it is not permitted to leave the arena.

Fights typically take place in the arena, and there is a duration for every match. Therefore judges check the performances.

Mega robot fights are the same as human combats. Robot combat, are conducted in weight classes with maximum weight limits in the most substantial class. Additionally, most cumbersome robots tend to have more power and stronger armor. Furthermore, most oppressive robots are challenging to build and expensive as well. Hence, the mega robot has widespread popularity around the globe. Likewise, people interested in live robots also fight online mega robot games, and shows are famous.
