This weapon will only be rated for Regular 1P/2P use, since it doesn't have any niche or league use. Also since most muffins are similar they'll all have similar reviews.

Price (3/3): Most muffins are dirt cheap, and from that they do that's good enough.
Power (1/5): Yeah... no. The era of 15 icon weapons ended when 13 icons became the regular for multiuse weapons. buying these over and over makes no sense when you can get something like Yooyu Knuckle Duster for 80k. It does get 1 point because muffins are so cheap you can use them until you get enough neopoints to buy 2 dusters.
Uniqueness (0/2): There's just too many 15 icon, 3 icon type bombs to count by now.

Overall its only use is for a user that's new to the battledome that needs a disposable, good damaging weapon until they can buy something better. Because of that its final rating is 4/10.

Robot Muffin is one of many different muffins being awarded in the Central Arena in the new Battledome. Like many of these muffins, Robot Muffin deals 15 icons. (Nice!) As result of becoming a prize, Robot Muffin's price has plummeted; Robot Muffins can be found on the Shop Wizard for less than 100NP. (Nice again!) At entry level battling, 15 icon muffin bombs like Robot Muffin are a deadly force. The damage output is significantly above Multiple Use weapons at this level like Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer and Scroll of Knowledge, and despite being One Use, these muffins are so cheap at the moment that the cost of replacing them is a mild nuisance at the worst. The average price of 15-icon bombs is so low now that they are no longer just for important battles like Defenders of Neopia; muffins can now be used by Budget Battlers on a fairly routine basis, especially when obtained as prizes.

That said, Robot Muffin is one of the best muffins, alongside Darigan Muffin. Robot Muffin is like a slightly stronger, but One Use Altador Cup Throwing Star. The same things that can be said about Altador Cup Throwing Star can be said about Robot Muffin - this icon combo is hard to block.

Royal Blue Cape comes to mind in terms of stopping both Fire and Air icons, but Robot Muffin will still get 9 icons though the cape. Scarab Ring blocks 3 of the Fire icons and 3 of the Physical as well, but Robot Muffin will still slip 9 icon through, beating Scarab Ring head to head. Neither Royal Blue Cape nor Scarab Ring is completely effective at stopping Robot Muffin, and other options don't get any better. In low level battlin...

Price/Power (3/5)
15 Icon bombs can be the difference between wins in the battledome, so picking the right one is important if you choose to have one in your set. Most of the cheaper muffins are generally good value so long as their power is sufficient, especially in 1P.

Countermeasures (0/5)
In 2P however this muffin fails to impress. Much like the Darigan Muffin this muffin is taken down by dual Scarab Rings.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades
Look at the other battle muffins and see which one is best, or perhaps look into the Swift Darkfire Negg Bomb, which offers similar icons but without the easily blocked physical.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
It IS a cool muffin however

Final Thoughts
Good for 1P like all these 15 Icon muffins, but falls short in 2P.
