The Insectoids are a war-like race of robots from a dimension known to the people of Earth and GoBotron as Level 21, and have tremendous physical strength. Their queen is the powerful Exor. While the regular Insectoids are tough enough they also have a warrior caste who are even more powerful. They have some ill-defined similarities to the Tri-Cats of Fedge, at least according to Turbo.

A group of Insectoids were transported to Earth along with Exor by the Renegades, using Doctor Braxis' Dimensional Interfacer. Appearing in a UNECOM base, they soon proved a match for the Guardians and humans based there, capturing Scooter before setting up a hive for Exor nearby. They then attacked UNECOM Headquarters, where Exor knocked out the organisation's communications and the Guardians Leader-1, Turbo, Small Foot and Blaster were unable to stop them. Exor then announced to Earth that she and the Insectoids were taking over the planet and resistance was useless. With UNECOM and the Guardians in disarray Cy-Kill then attempted to reverse the Interfacer and sent Exor and her troops back to their own dimension. However, she used her telekinesis to knock out the device and then tracked the interference to Roguestar. The Insectoids took out Crasher and Cop-Tur while Exor defeated Cy-Kill before threatening Braxis into putting the Interfacer at their disposal. While the Guardians arrived soon afterwards and the Insectoids with Magnetic Energy Nets it was too late as Braxis used the device to summon powerful warriors from her home dimension. Invasion from the 21st Level, Part I The Guardians were soon overwhelmed and Exor added Turbo to her captives, setting up a throne in her base on Earth. Braxis freed the Guardians and and a guard let Cy-Kill escape, leading to the Renegades getting free. Both groups attacked and the Insectoids began to take losses, notably from the heavy weaponry of Roguestar and struggling to deal with the agility of the Guardian Heat Seeker. The Guardians were able to reach the throne room and Scooter activated the Interfacer, though Exor fought the device with her telekinesis once again before being distracted by fire from Roguestar, finally allowing Leader-1 to return the remaining Insectoids back to where they came from. Turbo then destroyed the Interfacer. Invasion from the 21st Level, Part II
