Chief Knocka-Homer was an apparatus built by Homer Simpson as a fighting robot to compete in the TV show Robot Rumble and to impress Bart. With Homer essentially acting as a pilot, the robot proved to be very successful on the show, due in part to Homer's using unorthodox tactics such as stealing opponents' weapons.


Homer originally tried to make a real robot to enter into the show, but he was unable to make a working robot. Unknown to anyone else, Homer changed his plan and designed Chief Knocka-Homer for an operator (himself) to be inside it, pedaling a tricycle and putting his own arms into the robot's arms (essentially making them act as sleeves) to do things like swing the hammer. However, because Homer included a remote control, Bart thought that he was controlling the robot. Homer later confessed to Bart that the remote wasn't doing anything except delivering electrical shocks to Homer's butt, which Homer had set up on purpose to help maintain his competitive edge.

Chief Knocka-Homer defeated many opponents, among them Buzzkill, Ralph-O-Cop and Murderpuss. However, it came up short against Killhammad Aieee, a very high-tech robot entered by Professor Frink and his son. Kilhammad Aieee nearly destroyed Chief Knocka-Homer, but the fight ended in a draw. Homer was nearly killed in that fight, and was also "outed" as having been inside the robot all along. As it turned out, Bart was more impressed by Homer's being inside Chief Knocka-Homer and doing all the fighting for real than he had been when he'd thought that Homer had only built the robot. With Kilhammad Aieee stopped, due to obeying the Three Laws of Robotics and unable to hurt Homer, Chief Knocka-Homer was declared the winner of the match, even though rule 1 of the Robot Rumble rules stated a human couldn't be a robot.[1]

Someone was wearing a Chief Knocka-Homer costume at Comicalooza.[2]


Chief Knocka-Homer looked like an oversized mailbox, with three wheels on the bottom, a viewport in front, flexible arms (with grasping hooks) at the sides, and an Indian war bonnet on top of its head. Chief Knocka-Homer's primary weapon was a hammer, but it was capable of disarming opponents and using their own weapons against them.
