Nitroblast was once a mining bot on the planet of Tallos 5. At one point in his life, Hero Factory scientists gave the local mining bots the ability to absorb fuel cells through augments in their fingers, which eliminated the need to constantly recharge. This modification was flawed, however, which eventually led to his corruption after gaining an addiction and left the planet with several other fuel-craving mining bots. He has committed theft of government property, assault, arson, and extortion, which has caused him to become wanted in half of the galaxy.
The Fire Villains recently arrived at Tanker Station 22 and started to siphon all its fuel. The Alpha 1 Team was called in to stop them, but due to the villains increased power, they were easily defeated. As the Heroes were surrounded, Surge drew their captives attention away by destroying fuel cells, which gave the Heroes the chance to escape.
The Heroes later returned to the Refueling Station after being upgraded, and Nitroblast was the first to discover their arrival after Furno accidentally blasted a tower. The villains managed to gain an upper hand in battle until a Hero Pod containing Nex and Evo arrived. Nitroblast was startled after Furno attacked and nearly fell off a ledge, though he was saved and captured by Nex and Evo.
Along with the other fire villains he was put in the custody of the Hero Factory. He was awaiting cleansing but when Voltix created a black hole using the Black Hole Orb Staff, Nitroblast and the other villains were able to break their security locks and escape. Nitroblast knocked past Rocka and Mark Surge and escaped into the black hole. He is still at large.
Nitroblast is a loyal henchbot at heart. He truly believes in the Fire Lord's cause and is outstandingly devoted to him. Though his peers often make fun of him for his loyalty, Nitroblast is an efficient henchbot and will carry out the Fire Lord's will without a second thought. He is more intelligent and strategic than the other two and he proves that by easily breaking through any security system.
Nitroblast is covered in red and dark silver armor and has a large green eye. He is also covered in spikes and has a capsule on his shoulder, which is hooked up to his weapon.
