This is the fourth production by Nerd Corps Entertainment, following Storm Hawks, League of Super Evil, and Dragon Booster.


One day driving out in the Salt Flats, expert driver Vert Wheeler comes across a dimension called a Battle Zone, where he meets a life form called a Sentient named Sage. Together, they assemble a racing team equipped with state-of-the-art weaponized vehicles to compete against the robotic Sark and the beast-like Vandals in the Battle Zones for the devices that control the zones called Battle Keys to determine the fate of Earth.

Battle Force 5 lives on the planet Earth at Vert's garage/race circuit at a town called Handler's Corners. When Tornado-like portals called Storm Shocks appear, they provide access to dimensions in the Multiverse called Battle Zones. All Battle Zones have a Battle Key that allows access to the home world of the ones who accessed the Zone through Storm Shocks. This obligates Battle Force 5 to secure the Keys before the Vandals or the Sark in prevention of them taking over Earth.

The Battle Zones were created by the Sentients. There are two types of Sentients: Blue and Red. The two types lived on two separate Homeworlds as rivals, until the blue homeworld was taken over by the Vandals. Throughout the story, Battle Force 5 encounter situations that make them access the Vandal, Sark, and Sentient homeworlds.

At the end of season 2, the Sentient war ends and Krytus and his team are banished. The Blue and Red Sentients are united once again. But in the background Rawkus recounts that the Ancient Ones have awakened. Now Battle Force 5 have to challenge this new threat as well as the Alpha Code and the Green Sark (of which Zemerik is one) in the feature movie, Full Revolution.
