Nanos used to be one of the primary components of the leveling system in FusionFall. Nanos are small, miniaturized versions of Cartoon Network characters designed to aid the player through various means. There are currently 56 usable Nanos in the game. Although the NPCs of characters in the game have more realistic looks, the Nanos of them still retain some of their original cartoony appearance.
Nanos were created by the unlikely team of Dexter and Mandark. When Fuse came to Earth and began his invasion of the planet with his horde of Fusion monsters and Terrafuser, Dexter and Mandark began to develop the best way to fight against the invaders. The result of this development were Nanos. By harnessing the essence of Planet Fuse and its monsters, Fusion Matter, they could create the Nanos, the ultimate weapon against Fuse and his minions.
In the story, the Nanos were originally created in The Future, but unfortunately, it seemed like they were created a little too late, and the people in The Future could only slow down the infection of the world. But when the player arrived in The Future, due to Dexter's time travel experiment, future Dexter came up with a new plan for the Nanos: Sending the instructions for how to create Nanos back to their past selves, with the player, they could get the right tools to fight Fuse at the right time, and thereby prevent the dark future. Thanks to the help from the player, the remaining heroes managed to send the instructions to create Nanos, back to the past, and their past selves managed to mass produce the Nanos. It is also hinted that the Great Machine was built after the player sent Dexter a message via a wormhole from The Future.
Each Nano has three Nano Powers, one of which the player must select upon the Nano's creation; e.g. Numbuh Two can make a player run faster, while Mandark can allow a player and their group to jump higher. Other abilities involve paralyzing fusion monsters, dealing additional damage, or slowing down their movements. The chosen ability can be changed later at a Nano Station for the price of one appropriate Power Item. There are a total of 36 Nano Powers, and three copies of each power, one for each Nano type. Nanos must be summoned for their powers to be used.
Nanos come in three different types: Adaptium, Blastons and Cosmix. Based on its type, the Nano can be used to deal additional damage to enemies. On the other hand, if the player sends out a Nano with a type that is weak against the Fusion Monster's type, the damage will be less.
Every Nano has a stamina bar, which determines how long they can remain active. A summoned Nano will slowly lose stamina until it runs out. Stamina can be regained by giving Nano Potions to the Nano or putting it away to rest.
If the Nano has a passive power, its stamina will drain at an accelerated rate. Powers that require manual activation will drain a large amount of stamina at once. Guard, Antidote, and Freedom will drain some stamina when the effect to counter is triggered. Like if a player gets stunned by a monster, the Freedom Nano will lose some stamina to stop it, same with Guard and Antidote. Recall and Revive - Group will drain a severe amount of stamina. A Nano with low stamina will become visibly tired, and if a Nano runs out of stamina or is put away while tired, its picture will sink, and the player must wait for it to recover a minimum amount of stamina for it to become usable again.
Acquiring a Nano Edit
Originally, the player could acquire one Nano for each level. Once a player had gathered enough Fusion Matter, the player automatically received the Nano Missions for their level. After the fusion was defeated, the respective nano was given, and the player was leveled up.
According to Computress, in order for a person to create a Nano, you need three things: A definite amount of fusion matter, a personal item from that person and your own imagination, possibly Imaginary Energy in order to "purify" the Fusion Matter so you can use it.
As of now, the player can do an available set of Nano missions every four levels. Another way to get new Nanos, is by using one of the codes that gives the player a nano capsule. This method can only be used for certain Nanos.

- Gumball Watterson = FFCmisadventurer
- Rigby = FFCdeathpunchies
- Darwin Watterson = FFCfunnygoldfish
- Mordecai = FFCyeeeeeaaaahhh
- Princess Bubblegum = FFCnerdybutsweet
Additional Nanos Edit
During the Nano Enhancement Project missions, the hero collects items for the development of new Nanos. According to these missions, Nanos of certain in-game characters who don't currently have one are in development by scientists. Ben also has sent Dexter samples from Chromastone, Spidermonkey, and Jetray for Nano development.
Nanos can also be found in some form of nano incubator, located both in Mt. Neverest, and within Dexlabs. The nanos in the incubators include Cheese, Way Big, Mordecai, Jake, Rath, Ultimate Big Chill, Rigby, Flapjack, AmpFibian, and Sym-bionic Titan.
As of February 16, 2011, FusionFall released three new Nanos along with the creation of The Academy. For players with a avatar past the events in The Future, these Nanos were released by codes. FusionFall also annouced that there will be 20 new Nanos released in 2011-2012 (The exact number of nanos that was released in 2011-2012). In April 2011, FusionFall released three more new Nanos: Johnny Bravo, Cheese and a new experimental nano, dubbed, the Unstable Nano. With the addition of these three nanos, the DexLabs Primary Research Facility was released to the public. The facility acts as the central base for nano development and research. In May 2011, three more nanos were added to the game. Jake the Dog, Flapjack and Johnny Test, being the first Unstable Nano transformation, were given nano counterparts. In the following months, FusionFall released a handful of new nanos into the game. These updates included, AmpFiban (the second Unstable Nano transformation), Chowder, Gumball Watterson, Johnny Test (official release), Rigby, Titan, Zak Saturday, Ice King , Rath, Van Kleiss (the third Unstable Nano transformation, replacing AmFiban), Darwin Watterson, Mordecai, and Princess Bubblegum nanos, respectively.
List of NanosEdit
- Megas and Swampfire are the only Nanos with all three identical powers, Sleep - Cone, Sneak - Self and Sleep - Area.
- Codename: Kids Next Door is the only show that has at least one character from the show in all three Nano types (Adaptium - Numbuh 2; Blastons - Numbuh 5 and Numbuh 1; and Cosmix - Numbuh 4 & Numbuh 3).
- The Rath Nano is the only one of the Ben's aliens that is a Blastons Nano.
- Oddly enough, the Buttercup and Bubbles Nanos are not identical to their cartoon counterparts, and feature some slight deviation.
- Due to the massive Academy update, Fusion monsters and Fusions are often times a higher level than the Nano itself.
- The Ice King Nano was originally intended to be released as a code Nano, as seen above, but received a mission of his own in a stand-alone update. Another notable difference from his pre-release stage is that he was originally classified as a Cosmix Nano.
- Grim and Darwin are the only Nanos who have all three powers that have group effects.
- There is a glitch, where a Heal - Group Nano (Blastons is the only type that the glitch encompasses), like the Cheese Nano, will only heal the user of the Nano.
- The Cheese Nano's health power recharges faster than any other one before.
