Robo Bonkers is one of the ten Battle types in Kirby Battle Royale. The name also refers to the subject of the battle, Robo Bonkers - a giant robot made to resemble the Mid-Boss Bonkers.

Contestants are locked to a 2-D path as they circle around Robo Bonkers. There are auxiliary drop-through platforms in places, and a number of Cannons that appear. To attack Robo Bonkers, the contestants must use missiles that appear in boxes on the stage, tossing them into the cannons to fire at the boss. Occasionally, golden missiles appear which deal 5 times more damage than standard ones. Contestants can also attack each-other, and use their rivals as ammunition for the cannons. Meanwhile, Robo Bonkers will be attacking in various ways, most notably using its hammer to slam the floor, turning it into a temporary danger zone.
Once Robo Bonkers is hit enough times with missiles, it will be stunned, and crash down to one side of the arena, where the contestants can hit it using their normal weapons. Once Robo Bonkers is defeated, the game is over, and bonus points are awarded to whoever dealt the last blow. Whichever contestant (or team) did the most damage is the winner.
Like with most other battle modes, the contestants have stamina, and if KO'd will be out of the arena for a short time.
