"Leaving without this, human?!" - RD-L1
RD-05 is first seen in the Water Realm, where it transforms into the Slam Ram Hyperpod and attacks the drivers mid-race. Its driver later orders two RD-S1's to perform maneuver 7 on Taro. RD-05 wins this realm.
RD-05 is seen to be leading the pack in the Metro Realm, until it is ordered by Gelorum to turn around and defend the Sweeper from Tork and Karma. It's driver attacks Tork and Nolo, taunting them with the Swamp Realm Accelecharger, but is destroyed when it fails to notice the bridge behind it. The car was "sweeped" as it crashed into the sweeper, with 3 RD-02s.
RD-05 can be seen once again transformed into the Slam Ram Hyperpod in the Ice Realm. It is ordered by Gelorum to attack Taro, and drives off the track to do so. It is not seen after it destroys the Caterpillar Hyperpod.
While most of the drones turn around to attack the humans in the Cosmic Realm, RD-05 is seen actively trying to win the race. It is knocked off the track by Covelight, right at the last turn of the race.
- While RD-05 is seen driving in the Ice Realm, during the flashback in the Ruins Realm episode, RD-08 is seen driving in the Ice Realm instead.
- Oddly enough, instead of using CM5 / CM6 rims like the cars of the main casts, RD-05s in the series are seen with PR5 wheel rims, which is the standard rim for some of the World Race cars, and also one of the common wheel types in the basic Hot Wheels toyline.
- In the card game, RD-05's model is switched with RD-08
- Interestingly, the RD-08 model (in the card that say RD-05) actually has rear view mirrors.
- The only time RD-05 is actually seen inside the Slam Ram Hyperpod is in the Ice Realm.
- The only time more than one RD-05's are seen is when the drones are attacking the Acceledrome.
