It was a White, and Orange, four wheeled robot, armed with a powerful spinning shell.

After getting a bye in the first round, Megabyte's first opponent was Polar Vortex. This match started with Megabyte spinning up to full speed, and slamming into Polar Vortex. This ripped the flywheel of Polar Vortex partially off the front of the robot, mounts and all. Polar Vortex then drove away but soon stranded itself on the weapon mount, caught fire, and tapped out.
This put Megabyte in the quarterfinals where it faced Original Sin, this match started with Megabyte spinning up to speed as Original Sin slowly approached. Original Sin then lightly tapped Megabyte causing it to become unbalanced before slamming into it sending both robots careening into opposite walls. Original Sin then slammed Megabyte again as it tried to spin up, this caused Megabyte to rebound into the wall where it started emitting smoke.
- "Now smoke weapons are illegal, but I don't think that counts when its unintentional."
- — Scott Robinson
This turned out to be from the weapon motor, as everytime Megabyte spun up, more smoke would come out, seriously reducing visibility in the arena. Without a fully functional weapon, Megabyte was easily shoved around by Original Sin for theremainder of the match. To make matters worse, with less than 1:30 on the clock Megabyte lost its weapon belt meaning that it now could not spin up at all. Original Sin then shovedit around until time ran out, unsurprisingly the judges ruled the match in favor of Original Sin, sending Megabyte to the loser's bracket where it faced Crash n' Burn .

The 2 robots have fought 4 times and Megabyte is currently 3-1 against Shrederator.
