More Panda Monium was a box-shaped robot that attempted to enter Series 3 and 4 of Robot Wars . It was initially not selected for Series 3 after being involved in a behind-the-scenes accident, and failed to qualify for Series 4 after replacing Team Panda's other entry, Big Pants , in the qualifiers.

More Panda Monium was a box-shaped robot with transparent armour and armed with two weapons: a lifting scoop that could lift over 100kg, and a pneumatic spike attached above the scoop which could pierce through other robots' armour and be pointed at an adjustable angle. The robot cost almost £1200 to build.

During filming of Series 3, More Panda Monium became involved in a serious behind-the-scenes accident in the pits. The robot was dropped and activated without warning, with its spike injuring a member of the Robot Wars production crew. As a result, filming was delayed and several side competitions and special events due to take place as part of the Third Wars were cancelled. This incident also compelled Rex Garrod to retire from competing on the show in protest. Having previously criticised the show's health and safety standards in Series 2, he cited the More Panda Monium incident as his main reason for not returning to Robot Wars after Series 3.
