XPlode is a rogue villain in the Hero Factory Universe.
XPlode had become a millionaire many times over, & every inhabited planet within 10,000 light years has issued a warrant for his arrest. Von Nebula often hired XPlode for interesting missions. At one point, Von Nebula appointed Rotor to be XPlode's assistant in order to keep the former in line.
During a raid of C-4000 explosives that the Alpha 1 Team was protecting on Merak 9, XPlode battled Preston Stormer, while Rotor battled Jimi Stringer & Dunkan Bulk. When the battle went sour for XPlode, as Stormer froze his Meteor Blaster & wrested his Spiked Club out of his hands, the criminal abandoned Rotor & escaped. Both of them later regrouped & stole explosives from an Explosives Plant on Lemus 2. Despite being fooled by a falling Hero Pod, the duo managed to notice the Heroes & bring down Stormer. When William Furno gained an advantage on his vehicle, XPlode attempted to stop him using the stolen explosives, only to be stopped short by Mark Surge. While Rotor was captured, XPlode managed to escape yet again.
XPlode eventually teamed up with Meltdown, Thunder, & Corroder to eliminate the Heroes in New Stellac City. The villains were succeeding, yet the Heroes used Particle Separators to evade the villains' attacks. Soon, all of them appeared to have run out of ammo, though XPlode still had his Explosive Spikes. The Heroes managed to dodge XPlode's final attack & stun him. Stringer & Bulk then wrapped a metal bar, taken from the Drone, around the four villains to hold them in place. XPlode is currently in prison.
In the beginning of Breakout, XPlode is seen in his cage. He escaped during the breakout but he was later recapture.
XPlode is a powerful underworld criminal in his own right, though if the job is interesting, & the price is right, he can be persuaded to work for Von Nebula. The crimes he has committed have given him much experience; thus, he knows when to fight & when to run. XPlode is also known to be quick-tempered.
XPlode has red armor & translucent green eyes. He also has yellow Explosive Spikes covering his shoulders & back. He is known to launch these spikes at practically anything or anyone.
