Battle Balls are objects used to activate the gang's power to defeat villains. It is known as a power-up so they can defeat villains in their path.
Many years ago, battle balls were used by Virus Warriors such as Memnock and Zenblock as the Virus was unleashed. It is unknown who created the battle balls, where they originally came from, and what their original intended use was but there is an elderly ball master who can repair and upgrade battle balls. Millions of people were recruited to be virus warriors, including Mem and Zen as they were recruited by Chiquadotran.
Mem and Zen along with other Virus Warriors by the Benevolent Alliance for the mission of bringing down the virus once and for all. They were tasked by the Benevolent Alliance to recruit powerful soldiers and warriors from Earth when the virus was starting to infect many of its organisms. Things started to go awry for both Mem and Zen when they reached earth as the first thing they saw that they interpreted as soldiers were four kids wearing paintball gear and playing paintball with their names being Kevin, Shope, Tyler, and Roach. Mistaking them as potential allies for the fighting against the virus' threat, they gave the Noobs power balls and ended up scaring them in the process. Seeing their error for mistaking them as warriors and later having a few observations on the human kids who turned up neither mature nor ready for their job against the virus' threat, Memnock and Zenblock felt that they couldn't trust the human kids to defeat the virus. They tried to get the Benevolent Alliance to revoke the battle balls from the four children in an attempt to correct their mistake but could not do so and they were tasked with taking care of the four kids while training them until they proved that they were capable of fighting the virus on their own. The battle balls have powers that prove to be beyond anyone's imagination as they have powers such as mind reading, control over natural elements, transfiguration, and flight. They can also be transformed into anything of their wielder's desires such as a sword, an extractor gun, and a hoverboard. The battle balls are also capable of doing things that those who wield them do not even know about. They are also revealed to protect its users from very deadly blows and situations through generating a strong force field but this depletes the ball's energy and makes it inactive for some time until it fully recharged. However these weapons have a cost for wielding them as it can mutate anyone's DNA and require them to have the balls in their possession at all times or else they will shrivel up like fruit.
Flaws And Weaknesses
While Battle Balls give individuals in possession of them superhuman abilities and provide them immunity from the virus, the battle balls are shown to have several flaws and weaknesses. Despite the fact that the battle balls provide immunity to people from the virus, that immunity is briefly negated if that individual contracts any natural illness as shown when Memnock And Zenblock got infected with the virus after becoming sick with the flu in “Fluper Noobs” despite the fact that they still had their battle balls at the time. Even worse, battle balls do not provide individuals immunity from natural illnesses like the flu and swink eye. Battle balls are also shown to be water proof and capable of being used underwater, they can break if they get corroded by substances like paint as shown when the Noobs painted their battle balls and end up breaking them. Even though the battle ball is capable of many powers, they each have a set list of powers and abilities that can be used depending on the color of the battle ball. As a result, many Virus Warriors often fight alongside other with different colored battle balls to compensate for this flaw.
Any biological relative of the battle ball's owner are likely able to utilize its power(s) and consequently have his/her DNA accelerated.
Because of the fact that battle balls have many various powers and have abilities and traits that are beyond the knowledge of even the most seasoned of virus warriors, they can help out those who wield them tremendously but at the same time they are capable of having their powers abused and treated without responsibility. Many of the misadventures The Noobs participated in were results of them using their battle ball powers irresponsibly whether it is for personal gain or whenever they treat their battle ball as something other than a tool or a weapon. So far their abuse of the battle ball included but not limited to things such as using the power of teleportation to skip school or using Roach’s battle ball as a power source to play video games off of. Even experienced Virus Warriors like Mem and Zen find it hard to resist the selfish urge to improperly use their battle balls with Mem and Zen also misusing their battle balls for things such as turning them into voice modulator helmets to impress women or using them to fight each other.
- The Battle Balls are most likely a reference and homage to keyblades from the video game series Kingdom Hearts as like battle balls, keyblades can transform into other weapons and vehicles and enhance their users abilities and powers. The battle sword used by virus warriors is also a kingdom hearts reference.
- In Noobies vs. Smoothies, the users can't get the virus when their battleballs are implanted. However Tyler ingested the virus creature in the smoothie inside him and somehow not being infected.
