Hero Factory

Hero Factory is a corporation that builds robots to serve as protectors and bring peace to the universe.

    Alpha Team 

William Furno

The Hero originally, though has moved on to Older and Wiser. A Rookie with potential to be an incredibly powerful Hero. Pushes himself hard - probably too hard - to live up to Stormer's high standards as well as his own.

Preston Stormer

Alpha Team Leader. Level-headed and no-nonsense; he sets high standards for everyone under his command, including himself.

Mark Surge

A Rookie alongside Furno. A nice guy but tends to let his emotions get the better of him.
  • Deflector Shields: Generated by 1.0's Lightning Shooter and Shield.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: After Alpha 1 got cornered by the Fire Villains while trying to escort civilians to safety, Surge gave his team a diversion by destroying fuel cells, causing the villains to attack him in rage and allowing Alpha 1 to escape.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Livewire"
  • Jetpack: Brain Attack's Jetpack Wings
  • Shock and Awe: Predominantly uses lightning based weaponry.
  • Spider Tank: The Surge and Rocka Combat Machine
  • Weapon of Choice: Largely electrical weapons.

Natalie Breez

Another Rookie with Surge and Furno. Graceful and confident; her experimental systems give her the ability to communicate with animals.

Dunkan Bulk

Your standard Dumb Muscle and Boisterous Bruiser.

Jimi Stringer

Laid-back and an amateur musician. Lately also adopted a dose of "southern stereotype" mannerism.

Nathan Evo

One of the first 2.0-model heroes to be built. A calm and meditative weapons master.

Julius Nex

Another of the first 2.0 Heroes. An outgoing expert in communications (including social networking) with enhanced flexibility and senses.

Daniel Rocka

The newest Rookie and replacing Furno as The Hero, beginning with the crisis on Quatros. Modeled on Furno but is perhaps even more impulsive.


The former leader of Alpha 1 Team, and Stormer's former team leader.

    Other Heroes

Lucas Valor

Leader of team Delta 9, who patrols the outer galaxies.

    Von Nebula's Gang 

Von Nebula/Von Ness

Von Nebula is the leader of his own gang of villains. Once a member of Hero Factory named Von Ness, he abandoned his team during a mission and then blamed Stormer for his own actions. He returns intent on revenge.


A very rich Psycho for Hire who likes dangerous jobs.
  • Gentleman Thief: Partially; Xplode is actually wealthy and takes on jobs for the challenge. However, his manners, attitude, and actions are far from a conventional example.


A notorious but dim-witted criminal and Xplode's lackey.


A conniving henchman who wants to challenge the status quo, armed with acid.


A psychotic scientist who's skilled with chemicals.


A Dumb Muscle with a crushing claw.


A recruit with gas-based weapons.

    Fire Villains 
Once mining robots with the ability to tap into any fuel source to recharge anywhere, their lack of safeguards made them absorb so much energy that they went insane. They didn't care and began to steal fuel sources to gain even more energy.

Fire Lord

The leader of the Fire Villains, intent on stealing all fuel everywhere.


The Smart Guy of the Fire Villains, and the most loyal.


A huge and strong member of the Fire Villains who makes up for his lack of intelligence with his strength.


An insane henchman who constantly laughs.
  • The Hyena: His constant laughing often gives away his location.
  • Jetpack: If the name didn't tell you already.


    Witch Doctor 

Witch Doctor/Aldous Witch

Aldous Witch was an instructor at Hero Factory who secretly desired a Hero Core for himself. After a failed attempt to give himself a Quaza Core in the Quaza Chamber, stopped by one of his own students (Stormer), he was exiled from Hero Factory. He traveled to the planet Quatros to illegally mine its core, which is made of Quaza, not caring that it would destroy the planet. Upon finding a temple with a staff, he was transformed into the Witch Doctor, and enslaved the animals of the planet to do his bidding.

Animal Slaves

The animals of Quatros brainwashed by the Witch Doctor using spikes of Quaza to help him mine the planet's core or to fight the Hero Factory heroes.

    Legion of Darkness 
A team of villains formed by Black Phantom.

Black Phantom

The leader of the Legion of Darkness.


A villain with electrical powers who initiated the villain breakout.


A criminal with a Split Personality, one for his organic half, and one for his robot half.
  • Arm Cannon: His Poison Plasma Cannon.
  • Killed Off for Real: In an alternate dimension.
  • Spikes of Villainy: His robot half has green spikes sticking out of it.
  • Split Personality: His defining trait, as a result of being Two-Faced— the robotic and organic sides of his brain don't integrate properly. In the flashback story Legion of Darkness, one side is reckless and the other is cautious, while in later stories he descends into Talking to Themself. Each personality has its own Weapon of Choice, too.
  • Talking to Themself: He does this— out loud, no less— in Breakout and the chapter book The Doom Box. Oddly enough, he doesn't demonstrate this in the flashback chapter book Legion of Darkness, suggesting that while he's always had a Split Personality, the madness only progressed later.
  • Two-Faced: His entire body is divided into two separate colored and styled halves.
  • Wolverine Claws: His Shredder Claw.


A shark villain from the planet Scylla.

Toxic Reapa

A villain with toxicity powers from the planet Z'chaya.

Speeda Demon

An insane villain who uses his nitro-rocket bike to commit crimes.


A worker bot from the planet Mechna, reprogrammed by Black Phantom.


A wasp-like villain from a hive planet.

    Core Hunter 
A Hero-turned-criminal with a penchant for collecting Hero Cores and one of Hero Factory's most notorious adversaries.

  • Actually a Doombot: Uses a duplicate of himself in heists.
  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: One of the Heroes' theories as to his current whereabouts.
  • Arm Cannon: His Plasma Shooter.
  • Collector of the Strange: He collects the cores of Heroes he defeats.
  • Evil Former Friend: Was a friend of Stormer.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He was once a hero from Hero Factory.
  • Hero Killer: His gimmick is that he collects the cores of Heroes, which they need to survive.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The trendsetter for the tie-in novels.
  • Never Found the Body: Though there may not have been one left to find in the end.
  • Power Incontinence: Defeated when Surge feeds his power reserves into his already supercharged form.
  • Power Pincers: His Core Remover.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His primary color is black with red accents.
  • Serial Killer: A more child-friendly variation, taking the power cores of Heroes he defeats. It's implied this kills them if they don't get a replacement soon enough, though.
    • The first episode states that, as the hero's core is their main processing center (analogous to their brain), which means that not getting a replacement results in the body dying. The personality either dies or becomes a case of And I Must Scream, presumably.
  • Shadow Archetype: It's subtler than Von Nebula, but his struggle with staying on the straight and narrow path of his intended programming makes him one for Surge, the one 'bot who is consistently characterized as being unsure if he can measure up to the high moral standards of his job. Driven home when Surge is the one to ultimately defeat him.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Big curved red spikes are all over his body.


Artificial-created, organic parasitic creatures with one goal in mind: destroy Hero Factory.

  • Always Chaotic Evil: Their sole purpose in life is to take over the bodies of creatures so that they can use their powers to destroy Hero Factory.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: While they are quite large, they're even bigger in an alternate dimension.
  • Flight: In an alternate dimension.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: In an alternate dimension.
  • The Hypnotoad: They take control of creatures by attaching to their heads.
