The Fire Villains were a group of four former mining robots who went insane due to a malfunction, and began a hostile raiding mission in an attempt to acquire fuel.

On Tallos 5, mining robots are used to mine precious minerals and do construction. In order to cut down on time spent traveling back and forth between refueling stations, each of four of the robots, Fire Lord, Drilldozer, Nitroblast, and Jetbug, were given hands through which they could absorb any type of energy, and maintain consistent work. However, no safeguards were installed, and the robots gained the capability to absorb unlimited amounts of power, though continued absorption fused together circuits in their heads, driving them insane. The four mining robots went rogue and formed a criminal syndicate called the Fire Villains, led by Fire Lord.

In order to feed their newfound addiction to power, the villains began searching for sources of energy, eventually conducting a string of raids on Hero Factory fueling depots, where they dispense Hero Fuel to power their jet craft. The Fire Villains' marauding led them to Tanker Station 22, where the civilian workers sent an alert to the Hero Factory. The Factory dispensed four members of the Alpha 1 Team - Preston Stormer, William Furno, Natalie Breez, and Mark Surge - to deal with the villains. The Fire Villains quickly dispatched the Heroes, finally cornering them while they were attempting to escape. Surge broke away from the group and started destroying sources of fuel, forcing the Fire Villains to turn their attention toward him. They soon stopped and captured the Hero, though the other Heroes were able to escape. The villains were planning to ransom Surge back to the Hero Factory.

Later in the evening, the Alpha 1 Team (newly upgraded) returned to the Tanker Station, to confront the Fire Villains. Nitroblast spotted them despite their stealth attempt, and the two sides began fighting. Jetbug, in an aerial craft, started flying around the battlefield and shooting at the Heroes, though the captive Surge in the craft tried to warn his allies about the attacks. Initially with the upper hand, the Fire Villains were pressed back with the arrival of rookie Heroes Julius Nex and Nathan Evo; Drilldozer and Nitroblast were defeated and apprehended. Surge eventually wrested control of the aerial vehicle from Jetbug, and ejected him from the cockpit. Fire Lord, upon seeing his defeated forces, retreated further into the station, hoping to gain power by absorbing fuel reserves there. His newly gained strength rendered him impervious to the Heroes' attacks. However, Surge piloted the ship directly into the Fire Lord, severing his absorbing hand and allowing the Heroes to capture him. The Fire Villains were brought back to the Hero Factory and imprisoned, with the promise that they would go through a rehabilitation program to cure their addiction.

After the Breakout, the Fire Villains where all able to escape custody. They seemed to have disbanded. After Mission: Catch 'Em and Cuff 'Em was completed before Mission: Robot Rampage happened, all of them were recaptured and sent back to prison.[SM4]
