This Gigantic Robot Kills is the sixth album by nerdcore musician MC Lars.

Lars has stated that he worked with "Weird Al" Yankovic, the Rondo Brothers, Nick Rowe and Mike Kennedy of Bloodsimple, James Bourne of Busted, Daniel Dart of Time Again, Donal Finn of Flash Bastard, Pierre Bouvier of Simple Plan, MC Bat Commander of The Aquabats, Suburban Legends, Worm Quartet, Gabriel Saporta of Cobra Starship, Brett Anderson of The Donnas, MC Frontalot, Amie Miriello of Dirtie Blonde, Jesse Dangerously, Linus Dotson of Size 14, Parry Gripp of Nerf Herder, Jonathan Coulton, Aesias Finale, Sebastian Reynolds, Brendan B. Brown of Wheatus, and classical musician Walt Ribeiro on songs for the new album.

The track "Hey There Ophelia" is based on "Screamager" by Northern Irish band Therapy?. "Screamager" appears on the Shortsharpshock E.P., and the album, Troublegum.[citation needed]

The track "White Kids Aren't Hyphy" is loosely based on the song "I Wish" by Skee-Lo.[citation needed]

The title of the album is a tribute to Wesley Willis, who appeared at the end of the MC Lars song "Yes, I Am an Alien". At the end of the song, Wesley says that he will write a song about Lars on his new album, called "This Gigantic Robot Kills". Wesley died shortly after.
