The weight of officially recognized robot such as KHR-3HV is about 1.5 kg. Therefore, custom-built robots handicapped by about 500 g compared with officially recognized ones. It is interesting that how builder of custom robot 1 kg or under overcomes the weight handicap and which robot kit is able to win the tournament. However, it is necessary for getting championship of robot fight tournament to carry 3 important factors such as good body, good motion and good control.

The best 16 robots were 5 KHR-3HVs, 5 TINYWAVEs, 4 Bioloids, one JO-ZERO and one UK1 (Alumin). In the 3rd stage, custum-built robot under 1 kg was just Alumin. It seemed the weight of more than 500 g was hard handicap for robot builders. However the most remakable robot of the tournament was MK-09 by maco as follows.
