Hero Pods are canister-shaped vehicles that Hero Factory uses to deploy Heroes into action on missions.


A Hero Pod launching from the Hero Factory

The Hero Factory company developed Hero Pods to get Heroes to missions faster. The pods can either be launched from a room called Hero Factory Launch Facility,[HiA] also called the Hero Factory Launch Bay,(shown in the Mission: Von Nebula game) in the top of the Hero Factory, or carried by a Drop Ship before being deployed below.

Von Nebula

At Lemus 2, William Furno used a decoy Hero Pod to draw Rotor's fire while the heroes moved in. Rotor used his weapon called the Biohazard Gas Shooter to shoot the Hero Pod out of the sky, destroying the Hero Pod.[Episode 1]

A similar trick was used when Furno ejected from the Hero Pod as it sped at Corroder during another mission. The pod rammed into Corroder.[C2][Episode 2]

Furno, Mark Surge, and Natalie Breez were launched in Hero Pods to help Alpha 1 Team on New Stellac City after Thunder's nebula gases cut the MissionCam feed.[Episode 4]

Ordeal of Fire

A large pod carrying both Nathan Evo and Julius Nex arrived at a a besieged refueling station to assist Alpha 1 Team.[Episode 5]


After the Breakout happened, many Heroes used their Hero Pods to go after their assigned villains in various planets in the galaxy.[Episode 8][Episode 9]


Hero Pods feature engines to provide safe landings for the Hero inside the pod. They have an autopilot mechanism, and move using two jets.[Episode 2] However, they require Drop Ships for long distance and intergalactic travel. Also, the Hero Pod Launching Facility in the top of the Hero Factory building has a mechanism that can launch a Hero Pod. The Hero Pods are launched one at the time.[Episode 4][Episode 8] They have four "legs", which are metal planks that are on the edges of the Hero Pods and allow them to land. The Hero Pods come with a hyperdrive system that allows for fast inter-galactic travel.[Episode 5]

The Hero Pods also have ejector seats.[C2][Episode 2]

The Hero Pods come in various sizes. There is a kind of Hero Pod that can contain a Hero. There are larger ones that can contain two 2.0 Heroes.[Episode 5] There are even larger ones that can contain an XL Breakout Hero and the Ultra Mach Speed Cycle.[Episode 8]
