The Rooters have varying goals depending on the storyline. In the Samurai Tales, the Rooters, freed from Jail after Earth was conquered, became the primary resistance force fighting Glacia, the ruler of Earth. However, this is a ruse so Servantis can become the new ruler of Earth, having an army of brainwashed hybrids, having found a way to duplicate the process without Kevin, who is deceased at this point.
In Argit 10, Servantis sees Argit as the "coming storm," and tries to legally take the Omnitrix from him, with Swift being a lawyer. When that fails, then he resorts to force, having his Rooters attacking Argit.
In Jane Smith 10, the Rooters prepare to fight the "coming storm." Its members are more numerous than before, and consists of several powerful enemies.
