Rumble in the Jungle/Bilgerat Rumble/Snowmerdinger
Rumble's continuous hatred of Heimerdinger resulted in many a practical joke, one of which ended with a foam snowman decoration indelibly glued to Heimerdinger's head. Finally fed up with all of his pranks, Heimerdinger came up with a plan to get rid of Rumble once and for all. He challenged Rumble to a final showdown. In order to protect the other Yordles from the fallout of their battle, Heimerdinger suggested the battle take place on a remote desert island.
Rumble arrived at the meeting place on his newly tricked-out Tristy. To his dismay, as he approached the Island, a turret concealed in the forest canopy of the island shot out a large electromagnetic pulse. Tristy's engines shuddered to a stop, and Yordle and mechanoid tumbled to the sandy beach. Rumble, determined as always, made use of the internal mechanisms still viable in his old Tristy, the electromagnetic pulse tower, and local materials to fashion a new Tristy. This time, most of the electronics were replaced with wood and plant life so as not to be susceptible to another EMP trick.
With his new robot completed, he set out to return to the fields of justice. Along the way, he met a pirate ship who attempted to steal his supplies. Outnumbered, and with his flamespitter nearly useless at sea, he was forced to give his beloved jungle Tristy to the pirates. Their leader made a mistake, however, when he insisted on eating the delicious pineapples stored on the robot. Mistaking these bombs for fresh fruit, the onboard cook's attempts to slice the first one open resulted in a series of explosions that sank the ship. Rumble was mercifully spared from the majority of the destruction, although he did lose his left eye.
When he woke up, Rumble was dismayed to find himself washed up on the shore of the exact same island he had been stranded on before. He rolled up his tattered sleeves, then discarded them for a nearby pirate shirt. Then he began work on building Tristy 3.0 out of what he could salvage from the washed-up remains of the shipwreck.
