MegatRON is the giant version of my first ever combat robot (3 lb Beetleweoight) named RON. Now 10 years later, I have the funds and know-how to truly do this design justice. MegatRON uses its welded steel dustpan to push and capture its opponents. Once they are helplessly in his grasp, MegatRON drops the saw and mercilessly slices into the opponent's top armor. In its debut in 2014, MegatRON suffered from loose DeWalt clutches which ultimately led to its defeat. However in 2015, MegatRON was in full swing and took 2nd, losing in a nail-biter final to Triggo.

At Robot Battles, MegatRON changes shape to a "sportsman" class machine. Under these revisions, MegatRON has run under the name "Bug Love Robot" (2014) and "Overbite" (2015).
