Oedipus Prime- The fearless leader and mentor of the group. His steadfast leadership has gotten them through many difficult situations. In semi retirement, he sometimes lets the rest of the team handle the task at hand, choosing to monitor their actions back at Ultra Mega HQ.
AmpTron- Second in command. Eager to combat the forces of evil, but not always the most competent when it comes to doing so. His armor contains an array of hidden gadgets, many of which he is unaware of or has simply forgotten about...
Crank Shaft- That friend everyone has who's kind of a jerk but whom you know is a good guy deep down inside... somewhere... probably. He is often more concerned with commercialization than fighting evil and seeks the potential profit involved with being a super hero. Slightly obnoxious, occasionally rude, and morally flexible, but ultimately, on the side of good.
DrX-L-The inventor and technician of the group. He is always repairing the others and creating devices for the intended betterment of the galaxy. His efforts have met with varying degrees of success however, and he once accidentally chopped an alien planet in half while testing a powerful cutting ray.
The fifth and final member of the group. May have more common sense
than the rest of them put together. Cynical and quick to point out
problems and flaws in others' reasoning, Eric is the social conscience
and an integral part of the team.
Blender-hed-Another crime fighter making occasional guest appearances. An unusual creature, at least partially mechanical, past shrouded in secrecy, origin unknown. Title character of "The Blender-hed Adventures" 1996-98.
Stars- Have included Michelangeloís David, R2D2* and Robby the robot*.
Who knows what celebrities, robots, and celebrity robots may turn up in
future Ultra Mega Robot Guys adventures...
