Robot Wars viewers have said Carbide was the “deserving champion” of the 2017 show and think nothing will be able to stop it in the next series.
The mighty flipper destroyed its competition to win the latest run of the BBC Two programme, eliminating fellow finalist Eruption in under two minutes in the last battle.
Impressed fans are now questioning whether any robot will be able to defeat Carbide in the future.
Really interested to see if anyone can take Carbide on next series, they were utterly unbeatable! #RobotWars

What can stop Carbide? For the ground beneath it to simply swallow it up? Act of God? What?! #RobotWars

Carbide is like an anime antagonist right now. It can't be stopped. #RobotWars

However, other viewers said they were fed up with the robots crushing their rivals so quickly, saying the power of the robots led to the battles ending too fast.
#RobotWars just isn't that fun to watch when the robots are so OP, every match seems to end after like 15 seconds.

I miss the days when #RobotWars battles lasted longer than 10 seconds. They don't make 'em like they used to (I am both an old man & a nerd)

The next series of the popular programme is starting later this year.
Viewers have urged the BBC to consider making it longer than the current six weeks.
The only bad thing about #RobotWars is that there are only 6 episodes per series. It'd be nice to see more!

“We need a bigger series next time please. 6 weeks just isn’t enough,” pleaded another.
