The A.B.C. Warriors themselves are a team of war robots designed to withstand Atomic, Bacterial and Chemical warfare. They were built to take part in the long-running Volgan War, but since then have been involved in various bizarre adventures across time and space. Each robot has a distinctive personality, often one programmed by its human creators, but each is more or less able to act with free will.
