Computer Warriors was a toy line made by Mattel from 1989-1990. The storyline behind the toys involves a top-secret government computer which unleashes evil Virus troops. These troops, led by Megahert, hide in everyday household objects and have the goal of world domination by taking control of computers. The government computer then produces good soldiers, the Computer Warriors, led by Romm to battle the Virus troops. The Computer Warriors tagline ran "Expect the unexpected!"
Unlike many toylines of the time, Computer Warriors did not feature a tie-in animated series. There was only a single pilot episode, Computer Warriors: The Adventure Begins, which was later released on VHS. Directed by Bill Kroyer (who also co-wrote with Carl Macek) it featured his signature style of integrating wireframe CGI with traditional hand-drawn animation.

The sets commonly featured hinged, fold-out parts that revealed a micro command center inside with decals covering the inner walls and a chair for the characters to sit in. The figures themselves featured four points of articulation - two in the hips and two in the shoulders. While substantially small, these sets offered a commendable amount of detail in both the figure sculpts and interior decals.
