Techno Games 2002Edit
In Nautilus Mega-Kid's first heat, it went up against Sewme-Nator, Supersonicsquiddy, Linford Lobster and the reigning Swimming champion K9000 II. Surprisingly, Nautilus Mega-Kid got the better start and was moving very comfortably against the wall. While K9000 II and Supersonicsquiddy was fighting for a spot in the Swimming semifinals, Nautilus Mega-Kid finished first place overall at 31:15 seconds. Shortly after, K9000 II finished at 49:03 seconds and both robots advanced to the Swimming quarterfinals.
In its quarterfinal heat, it went up against Hydra 2, Pete the Penguin and the feared newcomer Marlin. Unfortunately, Marlin was the faster machine and finished first at a new world record of 11:13 seconds. Despite Nautilus Mega-Kid finishing second in the heat at 35:40 seconds, it was the first place winner only to go through to the Swimming final and since it finished second, it was eliminated from the Swimming overall.
