:''The term '''Moped Army''' also refers to a [[Moped Army (graphic novel)|graphic novel of the same name]] authored by Paul Sizer.''
The '''Moped Army''' is a group of avid [[moped]] riders, originally formed as the [[Decepticons]] in 1997.  Eventually, as other moped riders showed an interest in creating their own branches associated with the Decepticons, the Moped Army was formed, with the Decepticons summarily becoming a branch of the Moped Army.
The organization is comprised of self-governing branches which implement their own criteria regarding membership and organize their own activities.
The Moped Army recognizes three classes of members:
* '''Members''', who are active within their branch
* '''Scouts''', who have left the geographic boundaries of their branch, and
* '''Honorary''', who have helped the development of a branch without necessarily having become a member.
Each branch, further, keeps a list of retired and deceased members.
