There are a number of sporting activities played by Heroes, known collectively as "Robo-Sports".
The sport of Roboball involves the serving and hitting of a type of ball and eliminating other players. The game usually is played in teams, but players can compete solo if they please. Hero Factory has designed training dummies that are simulated by computers.
There are many occupations in the galaxy, and many involve law enforcement. Law enforcement careers include those as Heroes, as well as general police forces on many other planets, who handle criminal justice without the presence of Heroes. The police department on Mekron City is headed by Chief Drax; an associate of Stormer's, Aquax, was also once a police officer. When Aquax became captain of the ship Valiant, his head of security was Commander Kirch.
Many of the inhabitants of Makuhero City are employed in the Hero Factory. They serve in a myriad of different capacities, all supporting the law-enforcing Heroes. In addition to specific positions, there are also a number of general workers, who operate at the discretion of their managers.

Criminal activity is severely prohibited in the universe, but there are many who turn to the lifestyle. The crimes that are committed include sabotage, theft, energy absorption, murder, destruction, and extortion, among many others. In order to house the growing criminal population, Hero Factory is involved with several different incarceration facilities, such as Asteroid J-54, Penitentiary 1331, in addition to their own Villain Storage.
Mining is a popular occupation throughout the universe; many natural resources can only be acquired by mining a planet.
Aird Mining Corporation
The Aird Mining Corporation was a mining group working in far galaxy planets during the early days of Hero Factory. The Legion of Darkness, as part of a scheme to eliminate the Hero Factory, sabotaged a number of their Mining Robots, then tricked several Alpha 1 Team members into investigating. The robots went berserk, and started attacking the Heroes, who eventually quelled the Legion's activities. The Aird Mining Corporation later claimed damages for the incident.
The planet Quatros was one of the last reserves of Quaza on the planet, and was frequently mined for the material until it was discovered that the planet could no longer sustain having the Quaza extracted.
The planet Tallos 5 is the site of frequent mining, so much that it is often referred to as the "mining planet"; Tallos 5 developed mining robots to help with the mining, though their mining later went insane due to a faulty upgrade, forming a criminal group.
Merak 9 is also a mining site, using the explosive C-4000 in their activities.
Most robots speak the same basic language in the galaxy. There are exceptions, such as animal-based languages, including one spoken by Tratix Reptoids. A group of beings on a banking planet known as We Who Serve communicated via flashing lights, and were able to translate electrical impulses from robotic beings.
Hero Factory uses an alphabet system comprised of circles within squares, the circles having lines cutting into fourths. The circles and the squares are either colored a shade of green or blue. There is an electronic encyclopedia called Heropedia. Popular social networking medias include HeroFeed and HeroBook, and much of their news media is delivered through the news channel HFX.
