We’ve seen some pretty imposing robots wreak havoc on film. The Terminator continues to be a man of his word ("I’ll be back!"), RoboCop continues to grapple with his human half while shooting off hundreds of rounds into his enemies heads, and the upcoming Ultron in Avengers 2 is hellbent on taking over the world with his near indestructible consciousness. And then there’s Chappie. Neill Blomkamp’s third sci-fi film introduces moviegoers to a new A.I., one that begins his life with the brain capacity of an infant but quickly develops into a gangster bot who likes to pop a few caps with his gaudy gold chains. He may not look the part, but Chappie can get the job done when he puts his mind to it.

But how does Chappie match up to the other robots of cinema history? Is he has badass as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, as gun happy as RoboCop or as clever as R2-D2? Or is he gentler than Wall-E?

Sico
9. Sico, Rocky IV
Sico is definitely larger than Wall-E and R2-D2, but its intelligence is far lower than any of the others on this list. Knowledge is power, amirite? Here’s how I look at it: if something were to go wrong in any of these robots’ programming, how much damage could it inflict given its capabilities? Sico could easily roll over Wall-E, but Wall-E is more agile and can cause some trouble if need be. R2 can whip out various gadgets to help get it out of any situation. Sico, on the other hand, is a slow-moving, slow-reacting bot. When push comes to shove, it’s as non-lethal as one can get.
