The Hero Recon Team is a team of Heroes that was set up by Akiyama Makuro, in order to find & compile intelligence on the evils in the Universe. It was set up just after the creation of the Hero Factory, & was led by Merrick Fortis, a highly-skilled Hero personally chosen by Akiyama Makuro. Their headquarters are hidden somewhere in Makuhero City. They investigate the battlegrounds & crime scenes that the villains leave behind. They report the information that they find to the designers, Mission Managers, & Team Leaders. Rocka is one of the recent members of the Recon Team.
They watched William Furno & Rocka as they captured Voltix & were then dispatched to watch the Heroes after the Breakout, & one of them, Omega, followed Furno to Scylla, then Preston Stormer to Kollix IV & then Nathan Evo on Z'chaya. He then headed to Tansari VI & watched Jimi Stringer's battle with Voltix & then watched him being attacked by Core Hunter. Rocka remained at Hero Factory on Fortis' orders & defeated Black Phantom, though the HRT discovered the plans for Hero Factory had been sent to an unknown benefactor, who would later found the Brain Factory.
Hero Recon Team members are usually outfitted with a black & silver chest plate as a sign of their lofty status, though some tend to use any other kind of armor at their disposal.
Hero Recon Team members are trained to use a variety of different weapons.
- A purported Hero Recon Team member calling himself "Smith" was once interviewed by Hero Factory FM. He shared Hero Recon Team's latest mission files on Von Nebula & his villains XPlode, Rotor, Corroder, Meltdown, & Thunder. Natalie Breez later revealed that there is no "Smith" on the Hero Recon Team, much to Mak Megahertz's confusion.
