Corridor Digital’s video of the gunslinging “Bosstown Dynamics” robot may have been fake, but the following are all real. (And thankfully, diminutive.) First off, robots fighting with swords:
From Japan’s ROBO-ONE league.
Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.
Secondly, a robot performing a single-leg Suplex on another:
From Japan’s Kanto Robot Heavyweight Championship
How hilarious is it that they have a robot referee? (We’ll put the full video down at the bottom, it’s hilarious but also 13 minutes long.)
Finally, here’s some folks from MIT’s Biomimetic Robotics Lab showing off nine of their Mini Cheetah ‘bots playing soccer, among other things:

While these are all RC (for now), you’ve undoubtedly noted that despite their clunkiness, they’re all mechanically capable of taking to their feet after being knocked down. This is something I hoped no robot would be able to do–pushing them over is likely to be our last line of defense.
As mentioned above, the full wrestling video (with excited narration in Japanese) is pretty freaking funny, even if you can’t understand what’s being said. Sneak a peek at it while you’re waiting for something to render.
