The plot of Soldiers of Misfortune is a major departure from the rest of the Army Men series. No reference is made to the regular Army Men characters, or to any of the events that occurred in past games. The player assumes the role of a young boy named Timmy, who imagines himself as a toy soldier and uses weapons such as a miniature dart. This game is not officially part of the series, and is not considered canonical. The game was a failure and received largely negative reviews similar to Major Malfunction, many fans consider Soldiers of Misfortune to be the worst game in the series
