Lego RoboRiders (stylized as LEGO RoboRiders) was a short-lived Lego theme launched in 2000, following the Throwbots/Slizers, and preceding Bionicle.

A total of eleven sets were released, seven official sets and four promotional sets were released as part of the theme. Sponsored drinks cans, when exposed to cold temperatures, would reveal codes used to play an online game. RoboRiders is the last line of action toys created in the Lego Technic line before Bionicle.
