Before the match, Team Behemoth had taken a risk by adding a new grabbing tool to their robot.
Team Cherub went on to lose in the final round against the robot Eruption who flipped them out of the arena.
Mhairi Bruce added: ‘Man that guy is angry with his team #teamBehemoth #RobotWars That was some face while he stormed off screen!’
Rob Proudman tweeted: ‘#TeamBehemoth Team captain very childish stomping off like that.’
