Notes[edit | edit source]
- The Devil Invaders replaced the Dogra as the aggressors in the Machine Robo fiction printed in TV Land from 1984 onwards.
- While the Robo Machines comic strip used the term 'Devil Invaders', the European versions of Casmodon, Falgos and Zarios were issued as the Enemy Invaders.
- The Devil Invaders were dropped from what little there was of the Robo Machine mythos when the line began to align more closely with Challenge of the GoBots, with Creepy and Bladez using their GoBots names and being released as part of the regular series of figures.
- It is likely that the GoBots figures Hornet, Klaws and Bugsie were created from rejected prototypes for further Devil Invaders. The Super GoBot version of Vamp may also have been designed as a Devil Invader figure.
- While the Devil Invaders were superseded by the Gyandlar in Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos the five types featured in the toyline were recycled as the Gyandlar Devils.
