There are many definitions of good and one of them is total annihilation which that certainly is.the question is does total annihilation make it better than a hard tight fight.

I find my fave fights are either total annihilation or close fought and right to the wire, where both robots give as good as they get. Occasionally there'll be one where someone does something funny or amazing that makes it a great fight (Dave Weston putting his axe into Fandanadozy or Chomp picking up both members of the Termite Cluster in one go)

i think my best fight was Hogi ( version 1 ) vs void at AWS45. i certainly got a very loud cheer for winning that one.

That was a great fight but out of HSOD I'd go for HSOD vs. salt and pepper. :)

I have this list I made ages ago of some of the fun fights/Reading robot fights from Coventry.
1:16:25 Tageda vs. mini tinny cluster.
1:32:53 Lemmings vs. Spall
1:48:17 Lemmings vs. inertia 2
1:53:30 Flail Whale vs. Smart Ant 3
1:59:25 HSOD vs. Shadow
2:15:25 Kewjiboom vs. Anti-cyclone
2:27:25 Lionel vs. Anti-cyclone
2:29:27 Oddment vs. HSOD
2:37:25 Salt & Pepper vs. HSOD <- Really brutal match
