"The heroes created here may be made of metal and powered by Hero Cores, but their bravery and skill are second to none. Regardless of the danger, they go forth to do battle with the villains that would bring destruction to innocent worlds. They are the last barrier that stands between the universe and the chaos that threatens to engulf it."

Heroes, designed and created by the Hero Factory, are cybernetic warriors used to maintain law and order in the universe.

History

Long ago, the first heroes were created by Akiyama Makuro, with the intent of stopping crime throughout the universe. Since then, Heroes have become a widely accepted symbol of peace and prosperity, have been hated by criminals everywhere, and have saved countless lives and solved countless crimes. Heroes are manufactured in the Hero Factory, and dispatched to areas in need.

A special division of Heroes, the Recon Team, was created by Makuro in order to gather intelligence on villain activity in the universe.

Heroes were later upgraded to 2.0 forms, the new Hero standard featuring fire-resistant armor, as well as other enhancements like more powerful Hero Cores and improved vision across multiple wavelengths. The process took Makuro months to perfect, and he started by introducing the system to newly built Heroes before moving on to upgrading existing ones. The heroes of the Alpha 1 Team were equipped with traits of animals in their 3.0 forms.

Abilities and Traits

Heroes are unusually strong and agile for their stature. Instead of clockwork or other types of machinery, Heroes utilize pieces of Quaza Stone known as Hero Cores, which allow them to live as others beings do. However, since no other known beings possess Hero Cores, it often takes more time to develop and test cures for ailing Heroes. Although all Heroes are pre-programmed with unique abilities, they all contain sensors and machinery that allow them to fight crime effectively. Heroes are refitted with new parts and gadgets routinely in order to stay on top of recent criminal technological advances.

Heroes operate in teams, typically of three members, though more members are known to join when needed. Some teams take on rookies to train and guide while they work toward becoming fully-fledged Heroes.

Delta 9 Team

Lucas Valor

When a notorious space pirate crew attacked a space station and held the workers hostage, Delta 9 was called in to apprehend the pirates and rescue the workers. Due to the nature of the space station, the team was forced to use hand to hand combat and physical weapons, rather than the typical energy ones. The team pressed the space pirates back through the entire space station, and finally defeated them when Wise surprised them by plunging the area into darkness.

Team leader Valor now patrols the outer fringes of the galaxy, preventing hostile alien attacks.

Epsilon 4 Team

Shortly after becoming fully fledged Heroes, Epsilon 4, experienced in dealing with mythical creatures, was chosen to head to planet Earth in order to remove dragons from a local high school, and clean up the damage caused.

  • Azar Wright

Recon Team

Rho 3 Team

The Rho 3 team was once dispatched to the Etamin system, where Hero Factory personnel were about to be banned by neighboring planets, due to previous incompetence by Hero Factory members. Having no record of Heroes sent to the region, Rho 3 was given 16 hours to investigate the incidents. They eventually discovered rogue cleaning robots, who were pretending to be Hero Factory members as they idolized them, were responsible for the damage. Bans on Hero Factory were reversed, and team leader Zeal took custody of the robots, who were then employed as workers in the Hero Factory.

  • Eric Zeal (leader)
  • Kelly Deep
  • Rosalie Brisk
  • Michael Crisp

Rho 14 Team

When Fire Sprites attacked the Android Relaxation Grounds, Rho 14 was called in to remove the plasma beings. The team took less than two hours to complete the task, and also helped repair the damage caused.

  • Matthew Flash (leader)
  • Maddison Swift
  • Hailey Quick

Sierra Team

  • Ted Blakespear
  • Nite Burgiss
  • Bart Ellori

Thresher's Team

Thresher and his team

Thresher's team is the former team of now-Alpha 1 leader Preston Stormer, as well as Von Ness, who is now the infamous criminal Von Nebula. While responding to a routine burglary alarm, the team encountered a giant mechanoid running rampant in New Stellac City. Thresher was incapacitated trying to protect the rookies, and Ness fled the area out of cowardice. Stormer was eventually able to disable the robot, saving the city.

Stormer was later promoted to leader of his own team, Alpha 1, while Ness became the criminal Von Nebula.

Rookies

Zed 4 Team

Zed 4 was once assigned to guard the ruling dignitary of the Segunis planet as she toured through the war-torn outer provinces of the region. However, the princess complicated the trip by repeatedly putting them all in dangerous situations, in order to prove the lack of fear required by her station. Team leader Dodge eventually convinced the princess to admit that she was afraid, and engineered a situation which made the princess look like a hero, increasing her confidence and political standing.

Quotes

The first five 2.0 heroes

"We were made to be heroes. It's our job to help anyone in the known worlds that needs it. We weren't built to fail."
― Preston Stormer, The Trials of Furno
