The Defenders of Neopia are a team of superheroes lead by Judge Hog that foil the plots of Neopian monsters and supervillains. Beginning on 31 May 2002, players were invited help the Defenders by beating certain villains in the Battledome.
Each mission with the Defenders is introduced with a comic strip, and the player, as a new recruit of the Defenders, is sent out to find and beat that villain in the Battledome. The player must complete a mission before they can do the next one. Missions are released slowly over time and of increasing difficulty. Each mission completed earns the player an upgraded trophy.
A second series was released on 12 April 2006, whose sequence of enemies can be battled concurrently to series one.

- Judge Hog
