Army Men Kitchen

A Real World kitchen, a hotspot for battles between the Green and the Tan

The Real World (also known as the Parallel Dimension in Army Men: Sarge's Heroes) is a world that exists parallel to the Plastic World.


The Real World is first seen during the ending of Army Men, when Sarge enters through a portal. As the name suggests, the locations in the Real World are based on areas in "real life". Such examples include a garden, a table with miniature dioramas, a living room, and a bathtub.

As the Army Men series progressed, the importance of the Real World did as well; the Tan Republic regularly siphons materials and weapons from the Real World to use in its war against the Green Nation, and eventually, General Plastro expressed an interest in ruling over the much larger Real World. However, dangers such as Plastrification, pests, and deadly weather conditions inhibited Plastro's rule over the Real World.

During the ending of the game, Sarge enters a portal and is dumped into a real world kitchen. According to newspapers, he goes missing as a result. This was retconned in Army Men II.

Army Men II[]

The Real World plays a vital role in Army Men II, as the Tan Republic has been researching portals that lead to the Real World, as well as siphoning materials and technology to use in their war against the Green Nation. Sarge and his squad take portals leading to, and from, the Real World in order to disrupt the Tan Republic's schemes.
