Heroes are a special type of automaton that are mass-produced by the Hero Factory to fight crime, avert disasters, and save lives.
The first Heroes were created by Akiyama Makuro some 100 years ago. Since then, over 100,000 have been produced, with the number rising every day. Heroes have saved countless lives and apprehended countless villains, saving the galaxy more than once.
In the past few months, Mr. Makuro was designing a new building standard for all Heroes, which featured fire-resistant armor. He eventually perfected this process, and he introduced the system through newly built Heroes, and was later able to altering existing ones after he witnessed the successful upgrade of several Alpha 1 Team members.
Recently, a 3.0 Upgrade system was made where Heroes were given the characteristics of animals.
Each Hero is designed using a unique blueprint, but they all contain a Hero Core, a device crafted from purified Quaza which powers them and contains their personality. Heroes' boots contain Anti-Gravity Thruster Rings and jets, and their helmets are equipped with cameras and communications equipment.

The six original Hero sets were released in August 2010, among the first Hero Factory sets released. A generic pilot was included in the "Drop Ship" set, and different forms of Furno and Bulk were also released in the "Furno Bike" and "Bulk & Vapour" sets, respectively.
In January 2011, six "Hero 2.0" canister sets were released, depicting four of the previous characters having undergone the Upgrade, as well as introducing two new Heroes who also underwent Upgrade. Unlike their previous incarnations, the 2.0 heroes were designed using a unique building system that mainly utilizes ball joints as opposed to the previous system of pegs and axles.
