Robot statistics correct as of its most recent appearance on the show

Dinner Plate was a round shaped sit-and-spin robot built by Jives the Butler and armed with four static spikes. Dinner Plate was a unlikely winner from the first series of Banter Wars, not expected to go past round one, it managed to get to the Grand Final, losing in the loser's melee. Despite being deadly when it spun, Dinner Plate unexpectedly possessed great pushing power, the main reason why it made it into the Grand Final. At the end of the series, Dinner Plate was given the Surprise Package award, due to it reaching the Grand Final when it was not expected to, yet it still did. After Series 1, Dinner Plate was retired and was replaced in the Series 2 sumo with the full-body spinner Dinner For One.

Robot History Edit

In its first round melee it fought Wollington's Wawwior and The Long Arm of the Law. All three come together but none are able to get a good hit on one another. Wollington's Wawwior grabs hold of Dinner Plate but is unable to do anything while The Long Arm of the Law taps Wollington's Wawwior. After a while Dinner Plate manages to escape and then starts shoving The Long Arm of the Law into Wollington's Wawwior but once again the weapon stops. All three robots shove and push each other with no success. The Long Arm of the Law frees itself from Wollington's Wawwior's clutches who ends up getting flipped by the flipper but back onto its wheels. Once again the three robots clash with no real success even when Dinner Plate was held by Wollington's Wawwior. The robots circle each other and near the end Wollington's Wawwior catches The long Arm Of The Law again and this time severely damages it. The match ends and Dinner Plate along with Wollington's Wawwior went through to Round Two.

Both robots slam into each other but nothing much happens. Dinner Plate spins, causing Poshington's Prized Box to be thrown away by the impact. The two tussle until Dinner Plate shoves Poshington's Prized Box into the corner and spins again, which promptly destroys and immobilizes it.

The Day Ruiner is pitted

In the Heat Final it fought The Day Ruiner. The two robots meet, Dinner Plate manages to avoid being hit by The Day Ruiner's blades and presses the pit release button. Dinner Plate tries to pit The Day Ruiner but fails to do so and almost ends up in there itself. Dinner Plate then pushes The Day Ruiner to the side wall but ends up getting damaged. The Day Ruiner shoves Dinner Plate to the CPZ and heavily damages it, but then Dinner Plate finally starts pushing The Day Ruiner and pits it. Dinner Plate was now unexpectedly in the Grand Final.

Dinner Plate saves itself a world of pain by driving into the pit

In the Loser's Melee it fought other round one losers: The PM's Pulverisor and Wizard of Banter. As The PM's Pulverisor attacks Wizard of Banter, Dinner Plate chose to keep away and to only attack when necessary.
