Porcupine flips AJ Patz

Porcupine flips AJ Patz

In its first match in the Team Trash, it was partnered with The Naked Rat and fought against previous runners up Toblerone and AJ Patz. From the start Porcupine went on the attack on AJ Patz while its partner fought Toblerone. Porcupine shoved AJ Patz across the arena and eventually flipped it over, where it couldn't self right. Porcupine started fighting alongside Naked Rat to finish off Toblerone, it attacked its partner by accident some of the times but tried jabbing Toblerone. Luckily Porupine's flip was the deciding factor and the team went through.

Trivia Edit

  • Porcupine being red is based off of Diotoir's favorite character from Happy Tree Friends, Flaky the porcupine. Porcupines are also Diotoir's favorite animal.
  • Porcupine was the first Reserve robot to compete in the series it was a reserve for.
