Trivia: Sage built 3 versions of Bumble Bee. The one entered was the Power version.

Bumble Bee also was the only bot in BBEANS 5 that hasn't been KO'ed.

Bumble Bee was a Heavyweight Crawler/SnS hybrid built by Sage and entered into BBEANS 5 and is most likely one of the most controversial bots in the history of BBEANS.

After the release of the BBEANS5 competitors splash, it was immediately criticized by a few members, especially R0B0SH4RK and his rival Naryar (agreeing on something for once), and spawned a flame war, some members were against it and even wanted to remove it from the tournament, while the others did not bothered about such a bot being entered and pointed out that it was a completely legal bot. Even the mighty Starcore berated Sage for that sort of entry.

It had a bye at the first round, then (to everyone's surprise) lost to a poorly build complex HS (Bumble Bee was AI-ed for crawling towards it's opponent, then spinning, like a SnS).

In the loser's bracket, it first faced a rammer/hammer hybrid which went under Bumble Bee's spinners and got KO-ed for its efforts. Then it fought ACAMS's FS, that shoved Bumble Bee all across the arena, getting slowly ripped apart and KO'ed twice. The third fight, Bumble Bee was flipped OOTA by one of the arena flippers. Bumble Bee was then sent out of the tournament when it lost to Starcore's HS. Sage previously entered Bio Quad in BBEANS 3, Ham-mer Sandwich 2 in BBEANS 4, and won BBEANS 6 with Death of Angels 2. Sage is ranked 1st in BBEANS standings.
