Robot Wars[edit | edit source]
Mantis reached the second round of the main competition in Series 7 and also won the Crusher Crunch Up special event.
2011 UK Championships[edit | edit source]
Mantis fought in Heat E of the Championship, fighting up against Wilhelm's Scream, White Knight and the 5th seeds Meggamouse. In the battle, as Meggamouse and White Knight fought each other, Mantis ran into Wilhelm's Scream, but then retreated to take on White Knight, using the crusher to grab onto its flipper, but it was unable to cause any damage. White Knight then struggled free and was flipped away by Meggamouse, but before Mantis coul;d launch another attack, both Meggamouse and White Knight turned to Mantis, flipping it across the arena. White Knight then flipped Mantis into the arena corner, where it was unable to self-right, leaving it stranded and immobilised, shortly before White Knight also became immobilised. At the end of the bout, Meggamouse was declared the winner.
