Actroids (simply called "Alpha Droids" in the English dub) are the most common types of Alpha Droids, and are the only type seen in the anime. They are very essential in the Alpha Gang's plans, usually in work labour such as transportating or building machines and building structures. They are typically purple and have an Alpha Gang symbol on their chest plates. Actroids can curl up into balls for easy transportation. They are also capable of doing other things such as guarding the Alpha headquarters, as capture nets, and for mortal kombat, etc. Actroids are also what people would consider as a unified entity, working together to help the Alpha Gang any way they can, however useful or not they end up being.
Alpha Droids are shown to have very low intelligences, their speech limited exclusively to repeating their one or two word directive over and over again ("Searching, searching, searching." "Catch brats, catch brats, catch brats."), and having almost no capacity to think creatively to solve problems. They are usually only trouble for the D-Team themselves, as they are little trouble for full-sized dinosaurs to deal with.
In Episode 12 of the anime, a group of Alpha Droids trying to lure Terry manage to capture both themselves and the Alpha Trio in their own trap. And, as seen in the 17th episode, Alpha Droids are capable of becoming dizzy and disoriented.
Seth uses an upgraded form of the Actroids when he betrays the Alpha Gang, called "Super Alpha Droids" in the TCG. An anime-exclusive third variant of Actroid is also seen in One Final Move, which the D-Team and Alpha Gang (attempt to) disguise themselves as to evade detection. In the previous episode, a flashback had revealed yellow droids extremely similar to this third variant working with the Ancients at the dig site they uncovered the Element Stones at, likely indicating they were the original model.
- Alpha Droids
- +400; Only an Alpha Dinosaur can use this Move. When you play this Move, look at the top card of your deck. Then, put it on the top or bottom of your deck.
- Super Alpha Droids
- +300; Only an Alpha Dinosaur can use this Move. If you win this battle, you can put any number of cards from your hand on the bottom of your deck. Then, draw the same number of cards.
These Alpha Droids are seen in the Alpha Trooper Move Cards, and are seen only in the arcade and DS Games. They are muscular, red in color, and are strong enough to throw dinosaurs around. They are usually tougher to beat than Actroids in the DS Game.
Two other anime-exclusive Alpha Droid designs are seen in One Final Move under use by Seth. One is a floating pink ladybug-shaped robot with an eye at the front, which are used as mobile security cameras.
The second is a magenta squid-like droid capable of either rolling on three wheels, or using its two back wheels as feet to stand and walk on. This is the model that discovered the D-Team and Alpha Gang attempting to sneak around the Backlander disguised as Alpha Droids. Given that it can speak fluently instead of simply repeating its command over and over, and that the Super Alpha Droids deferred to it for instructions, it seems to be programmed for higher intelligence than other models.
