Super Robo Mecha Force Five! or SRMFF for short, is a fictional cartoon television series appearing in the 2012 TV series' second season, that Michelangelo introduced to his turtle brothers after finding a box of old SRMFF video tapes. The Turtles quickly all became obsessed with the TV show, except for Donatello.
SRMFF acts as a spiritual successor to the Space Heroes cartoon from the first season. The series is a pastiche of the animated series GoLion (Voltron) and includes elements of the anime Voltes V, Mazinger Z, and the tokusatu, Super Sentai (Power Rangers).
SRMFF kicked off the episode with some great anime satire, including archetypal team characters - including the leader, the scientist, the princess, the brute - and an adorable animal sidekick named Squeakums.
SRMFF also presents a variant on the "captain slap" from Space Heroes.
All of the characters are meant to represent the characters in TMNT series based on their characteristics and behaviors. Captain Coolstar, Dr. Blip, Lunk, Squeakums, Princess being homages to Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and April in this order.

- It is the second animated show in the series to have very bad acting.
- This TV-Series is a clear parody to the real series Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go (short: SRMTHFG) created by Ciro Nieli.
- Coincidentally, Greg Cipes, voice actor of Michelangelo for the 2012 series, also provides the voice of Chiro, as of the fact these series are both produced by Ciro Nieli.
- A rather obvious homage to the pleathora of Japanese animated programs featuing Giant robots often dubbed "Mecha".
