This is a list of characters from The Transformers television series.


The Autobots (also known as Cybertrons in Japan) are the heroes in the Transformers toyline and related spin-off comics and cartoons. Their main leader is Optimus Prime, but other "Primes" have also commanded the Autobots such as Rodimus Prime. They are constantly at war with the evil Decepticons. In the U.S. cartoon line, the Autobots were the descendants of a line of robots created as consumer goods by the Quintessons; the Decepticons, are descended instead from robots designed as military hardware.

Other terms for the Autobots are Autorobot (in Italy), Autoboterna (in Sweden), Kibery (in Ukraine), and Robotrikim (in Israel).

Small, eager, and brave, Bumblebee acts as a messenger, scout, and spy. Due to his small size, he dares to go where others cannot and will not. He idolizes the bigger Autobots, especially Optimus Prime and Prowl, and strives to be accepted. He is the most energy efficient and has the best vision of all the Autobots. He can go underwater for reconnaissance and salvage missions. Although physically the weakest Autobot, his stealth more than compensates for this inadequacy. This battle-tested robot was the first autobot to forge an alliance with the humans. He is a very close ally to human Spike Witwicky, Often seen as an underdog and not the biggest bot he has more courage than any soldier from Cybertron. As the most trusted lieutenant of Optimus Prime, he will do whatever it takes to protect earth and its people.

Often injured while experimenting with new weapons.
Prowl 1980 Nissan 280ZX Police More Than Meets the Eye (Part 1) Killed by a Constructicon in The Transformers: The Movie (His appearance in Headmasters could be considered an animation error). Michael Bell Dead (Alive in Headmasters)
Prowl will keep at a task for as long as it takes. Strives to find reason and logic in everything. A listener, not a talker. Has most sophisticated logic center of all Autobots. Able to analyze and advise on complex combat situations almost instantaneously. Fires wire-guided incendiary missiles and high-corrosive acid pellets. The unexpected can often scramble his circuits.

Hot Rod is an all-American-boy Autobot. He is a typical adolescent who dreams of being heroic and important. He tends to follow rules too closely. Although he means well, Hot Rod's impulsive actions often get him into trouble. He carries two photon lasers that temporarily electromagnetize an enemy robot's microcircuits. Speed: 120 mph. Range: 4 miles. He can be hotheaded, but he is always a well meaning, admirable lad and a brave and honorable fighter. As Rodimus Prime, he is the vanguard for the Autobot ranks.

In robot mode, carries a photon eliminator that shoots high voltage electricity. Range: 500 miles. Speed: 200 mph. Sole purpose is to protect all life. His only weakness is his compassion for other living creatures. As a Targetmaster, Hot Rod often goes off on his own adventure with Firebolt, his electrostatic discharger rifle, who led a quiet scholarly life as Nebulan's top atomic physics scientist until he became the thrill-seeking Hot Rod's partner, Firebolt is excited, but nervous, about the prospect. In, “Transformers Headmasters”, Hot Rod became Rodimus Prime again. After Cybertron was destroyed, Rodimus left with Kup and Blurr to find a new home for the Autobots, making Fortress Maximus the new supreme commander of the Autobots.

In robot mode, he carries an old-style musket laser that shoots short bursts of metal-corrosive hydrochloric acid. Range: 5 miles. Speed: 100 mph. Kup sees himself as a seasoned campaigner with more knowledge and experience to share. Other Autobots aren't always receptive to his advice. As a Targetmaster, he is binary-bonded to Recoil, an old style musket laser and former all-world prismaball player. In, “Transformers: The Headmasters”, Kup and Blurr left with Rodimus Prime to find a new home for the Autobots after Cybertron was destroyed.
Ultra Magnus 1986 Mack Car Carrier Scramble City The Rebirth (Part 3) Robert Stack (film), Jack Angel (TV series) Alive (Died in Headmasters)
Ultra Magnus is all soldier. Most comfortable when carrying out Optimus Prime's orders. Possesses magnificent fighting skills, courage, and a gift for battlefield improvisation. Uncomfortable in the mantle of leadership, but presents strong profile as a commander. Carries missile launchers capable of hitting a target 30 miles away. Resolute, fair, and courageous beyond reproach. Ever ready to sacrifice himself for the good of men and mission. Ultra Magnus was chosen to lead the Autobots by Optimus Prime.

Blurr Cybertronian Hover Car The Transformers: The Movie The Rebirth (Part 3) John Moschitta Jr. Alive
Blurr is the fastest Autobot on land. He is a close descendant to a thoroughbred Cybertronic race horse, and a superior messenger. He can quickly whisk information from one place to another. In robot mode, he carries an electro-laser that reverses the polarity of an enemy robot's microcircuts and leaves them motionless. Range: 10 miles. In vehicular mode, he can travel faster than the speed of sound, leaving a blurred image in his trail. As a Targetmaster, he is paired with Haywire, excitable Nebulan teenager whose impulsiveness makes him a chancy electro-laser cannon, at best. In, Transformers: The Headmasters”, Blurr and Kup left with Rodimus Prime to find a new home for the Autobot's after Cybertron was destroyed.
Arcee Cybertronian Convertible The Transformers: The Movie The Rebirth (Part 3) Susan Blu Alive
Arcee is the only female Autobot to appear on a regular basis, not one of the few female Autobots who only appeared in just four various episodes. She was created in an effort by the film's producers to expand the market audience to include girls as well as to appear less sexist. Some have criticized the character for being overly stereotypically female due mainly to her need to protect Daniel Witwicky and act as a surrogate mother, but she is still shown to be a tough female warrior (i.e.: The Dweller in the Depths). She eventually becomes a Headmaster with Daniel (in an Exo-suit) forming her head. Although she has been paired with Springer (for most of Season 3), Chromedome (2 episodes of the second half of Headmasters) and Brainstorm (most of the second half of Headmasters), she seems to be more attached to Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime (in the Movie and Dark Awakening and the first half of Headmasters).
Wheelie Cybertronian Car The Transformers: The Movie The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 2) Frank Welker Alive
Wheelie is the sole survivor from a party of intergalactic colonists who crash landed on Earth. He is a barbaric little savage who managed to stay alive by cunning, stealth, and fearlessness.

Is a staunch friend to the Dinobots and a reliable ally for Hot Rod and Kup.

A giant (the TV show doesn't do his size justice; see the comic) six-changer Decepticon with a vile, nasty, murderous disposition. He carries out his job with ferocious intensity. Only redeeming quality is he speaks well of those he has sent to "the great junkyard in the sky," his phrase for destruction.

Abominus The 5 Terrorcons Grimlock's New Brain The Rebirth (Part 2) Jim Gosa Alive
Even more so than the other Decepticon combiners, Abominus is a being of mindless fury. He's not truly a warrior—he's an animal, the destructive rages of the Terrorcons who compose him personified. His commanders can't give him orders simplistic enough for him to understand, so they just point him in the direction of objects that need to be smashed, and turn him loose. The only thing that distinguishes him from a wild beast is the enjoyment he derives from his terrible rampages. The Terrorcons who form him were working for the Quintessons as an offensive/defense team in one episode, but are now otherwise Decepticon agents, as they were taken by Galvatron.

None too bright and none too stable, Fakkadi is concerned primarily with the accumulation of wealth and keeping "fanatics" and "imperialists" away from his homeland's shores. He is not averse to making deals with Decepticons to help further these goals. Fakkadi's character was quite controversial, and in fact the stereotypical "evil Arab" portrayal prompted actor Casey Kasem's departure from the series.

Name Alternate mode First & Last appearances Voiced by
Arcana Brainstorm's Head The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Jack Angel
For a man whose work has had such a big effect on the lives of so many Nebulans and Transformers, very few people really know the distant and remote Arcana. Not even Brainstorm, who shares his psyche, can claim to truly fathom the workings of his partner's mind. But then, Arcana seems to cultivate an extremely anti-social persona unintentionally, training first as a medical doctor, only to grow bored and focus on long-forgotten and repudiated scientific lore of his planet, earning the ire of medical colleagues. Yet it was this combination of knowledge and skill, along with the combined input of his future partner, that allowed the creation of the Binary Bonding process.
Stylor Chromedome's Head The Rebirth (Part 2) Milt Jamin
Stylor is gorgeous. Always impeccably dressed and groomed and always in the latest style. He spends most of his time primping and polishing either Chromedome or himself, and is renowned on Nebulos for his exquisite taste and dashing good looks. Though he loves the ladies, he surprisingly doesn't have the greatest luck there, since few want to spend much time with a man who's so focused on being prettier than they are. It is suspected that Stylor volunteered for the Headmaster process simply because it was trendy at the time, his Autobot partner Chromedome, being an inveterate academic and computer nerd, is something of a frustration to Stylor, but he does his best to bring out the big guy's cooler, more social side (which he figures MUST be in there somewhere). Chromedome in return tries to get Stylor to be a little less superficial.
Duros Hardhead's Head The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Charlie Adler
Duros was born to be a soldier on a world without war. He served for years as the head of security for the Nebulan Ruling Council and spent most of that time horribly bored and unsatisfied. The coming of the Transformers to Nebulos may have been a tragedy for most of his race, but it was quite possibly the best thing to ever happen to Duros... and also the worst, in Hardhead he has found a kindred spirit, and the two have bonded over their shared interest in combat and warfare to become one of the closest pairings among all the Headmasters. The dependable, resourceful, and stoic Duros is a great addition to the Autobot army, but his eager desire for action and love of combat have made him an outsider among the naturally peaceful Nebulans and has led him to be shunned even by his family and, most painfully, his now estranged wife. Duros shuts the pain that his failed personal life causes him away and focuses instead on being the soldier he always felt destined to be.
Gort Highbrow's Head The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Michael Bell
The all-American boy of the Nebulan Headmasters, Gort rose up from a lowly position as stable boy to courageous defender of his planet. The idealistic teenager never has an unkind word for anybody and serves as a shining example of the best the Nebulan Headmasters have to offer, it's a pity, then, that Gort was partnered with his polar opposite, the elitist snob Highbrow, who takes considerable offense to being binary bonded with what he sees as a mere commoner. Their pairing is among the worst of the Autobot Headmasters, often detracting, not adding, to Highbrow's effectiveness in combat as he refuses to listen to Gort's suggestions except in all but the most life-threatening situations.
Grax Skullcruncher's Head The Rebirth (Part 2) Milt Jamin
A ruthless businessman and industrialist, Grax was willing to do whatever it took to solidify his place at the top of Nebulan business world. Not that he needed much convincing to undergo the binary bonding process to combine with Skullcruncher to eliminate his business rivals, the Decepticon methods of utterly and cruelly absorbing all foes were just more literally bloody versions of Grax's own. Skullcruncher didn't see the similarity though, Nebulan corporate types were barely even a snack... Grax adds considerably to the somewhat slow mind of Skullcruncher, which admittedly isn't hard, but still finds most of his suggestions ignored unless they involve eating the corpses of your enemies or inventive noises to make when grinding your teeth.
Vorath Mindwipe's Head The Rebirth (Part 2) Charlie Adler
Vorath was the former Minister of Science of the planet Nebulos. A Zarak loyalist, Vorath was expelled from his office when Galen uncovered his involvement in illegal medical experiments on live subjects. Seeking revenge, Vorath gained the chance to do so and continue his experiments with the arrival of Transformers and the creation of the Headmasters, when he agreed to binary bond to Mindwipe.
Monzo Weirdwolf's Head The Rebirth (Part 2, 3) Neil Ross
On Nebulos, Monzo was a professional hyperwrestler before he became a nightclub owner. He is a brutal fellow who doesn't appreciate the fine art of tactics or strategy. He especially hates poetry, which puts him at odds with his Headmaster partner, Weirdwolf. However, they both find common ground in wanting to beat stuff up.
Spasma Apeface's Head/Monkey Head The Rebirth (Part 2) Tony St. James
The nervous and insecure Spasma was the son of a despised noble family on Nebulos, bullied and picked on his entire life while being crushed under the weight of a bankrupt family legacy. The arrival of the Transformers on his planet and the creation of the Headmasters gave him the prospect of power to escape his feeling of inadequacy, or so he thought... outwardly, Spasma had his wish fulfilled when he was binary bonded to Apeface, literally becoming the kind of bully who had previously tormented him. But all too frequently, the pressure of combat will wear away at Spasma, until Apeface is actions trigger a torturous flashback from the Nebulan's past, reducing him to a whimpering, crying wreck.
Krunk Snapdragon's Head/ Dragon Head The Rebirth (Part 2) Christopher Collins
Krunk is Zarak's nasty, brutish bodyguard. He takes orders from Zarak without question, no matter how illegal or rotten they are, as Snapdragon's Headmaster, he enhances the Decepticon's thuggish personality rather nicely. Two peas in a pod, really.
Daniel Witwicky Exosuit/Arcee's Head The Transformers: The Movie The Rebirth (Part 3) David Mendenhall
Daniel Witwicky is the human son of Spike and Carly Anderson-Witwicky. He is approximately 12 years of age in 2005, and was presumably born sometime between 1990 and 1993. He is the grandson of Sparkplug Witwicky. Daniel often gets into trouble, which requires either his father or the Autobots to save him. He is very good friends with the Autobots, particularly Wheelie, Grimlock, and Hot Rod, but the one he is closest to is Arcee, who views him as a surrogate son. Daniel is (sometimes) the Headmaster partner to Arcee.

Nebulan Targetmasters[edit]

The Nebulans who co-operate with the Targetmasters transform into the Transformers' weapons.

Name Alternate mode First & Last appearances Voiced by
Haywire electro-laser cannon The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Rob Paulsen
One of the younger Nebulans to binary bond to a Transformer, Haywire is very much of the "act first, think later"-impulsive-teenage mold. In that respect, the relationship between Haywire and his partner Blurr is one where they get on like a house on fire, but also a classic example of the lack of planning in the early stages of Targetmasters bonding for how effective a combat team they would make. Transforming into an electro-laser cannon, Haywire is just as hyperactive as his partner in combat, often more concerned with how often he fires than where he is aiming or how effective his shots are.
Pinpointer Pistol The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Frank Welker
Pinpointer is a Nebulan of few words. He is binary bonded to Crosshairs.
Firebolt electrostatic Discharge rifle The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Dick Gautier
Firebolt was once a quiet scholar on the pacifistic planet of Nebulos, where he was renowned as one of its top atomic physicists. Beneath his meek and reserved exterior, however, young Firebolt yearned for a life of action and excitement. His dreams of adventure might never have come true, if not for the intervention of the Decepticons. When the call went out for Nebulans who would be willing to take up arms in defense of their planet, Firebolt was amongst the first to volunteer. Undergoing the extensive and painful procedure known as Binary bonding, Firebolt was given a special suit of black and grey armour and granted the power to transform himself into a powerful double-barreled weapon called an "electrostatic discharge rifle", although eager for the chance to make a difference and have some fun, Firebolt soon found that his own exuberance paled in comparison to his Targetmaster partner: a young Autobot named Hot Rod. Firebolt's opinion of this situation is what could be described as "cautiously optimistic" – he is excited by all the action and adventure of being a Targetmaster, but he is also very nervous at some of the risks that Hot Rod insists on taking at times.
Recoil musket laser rifle The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Johnny Haymer
One of the older Nebulans to join the Autobots, Recoil was a former All-World Prismaball champion on his home planet, until age finally caught up with him. While helping to keep Nebulos safe is part of why he agreed to undergo binary bonding to become a Targetmaster, a large part was to prove to himself as much as to others that he still had what it takes. Transforming into a version of Kup's original old-style musket laser, Recoil has found a good match with the crusty Autobot, both seeking the respect they feel their age and experience deserves.
Peacemaker sonic blaster The Rebirth (Part 2,3) Steve Bulen
Peacemaker is an upbeat, almost contagiously positive Nebulan police officer. He keeps trying to cheer up his Autobot partner Pointblank to little result. Pointblank doesn't feel the Autobots should have involved the Nebulans in the war to begin with, and so disapproves of his partner and his advice on principle. Those who know him, though, say that Peacemaker has actually made progress in improving the dour Autobot's world view. Not a lot of progress, mind you... Thankfully Peacemaker knows how to be patient, loves a challenge, and is firm in his belief that optimism leads to success.
Spoilsport double cannon The Rebirth (Part 2,3) Danny Mann
Spoilsport has a rather appropriate moniker, given that he spoils the fun of his partner Sureshot by being an equally good marksman. In a contest between an intelligent gun and an intelligent gunner, the gun gets a majority vote. His partner resents his interference, and in his turn, the Nebulan resents Sureshot for his lack of appreciation. It cannot help that Sureshot is a jerk, of course, and presumably he never calls.
Nightstick beam gun The Rebirth (Part 2,3) Peter Cullen
Back on Nebulos, Nightstick was a master criminal. For some reason, he gave that up to undergo binary-bonding to Cyclonus. The loyal and honorable Decepticon warrior often finds himself at odds with the very dishonorable Nightstick and generally considers him an irritating pest.
Aimless beam gun The Rebirth (Part 2) Milt Jamin
Aimless should have been called "Useless". This Nebulan's success rate when he tries to hit a target is unknown, because that would require him to, you know, actually try. Together with his Targetmaster partner Misfire, he is a danger to himself and others. Mostly others.
Fracas Incendiary cannon The Rebirth (Part 2) Neil Ross
Fracas' new Targetmaster body allows him to transform into an incendiary cannon for his new Decepticon partner Scourge—fitting, since Fracas is himself a hot-running, volatile scrapper who explodes into violent rages.
Caliburst lange barrel gun The Rebirth (Part 2) Johnny Haymer
Like his binary bonded partner Slugslinger, Caliburst is merely putting on an act and playing the role of the cold and fearless Decepticon warrior he outwardly projects; it's just that he is generally more adept at keeping the mask up because of his former life as an actor. While not a good actor, more the kind to be found in the freezer section next to the other pork products, Caliburst does know the importance of staying in character. Given that he joined the Transformer conflict for the money because there was no one left on Nebulos that could stomach appreciate his "talent", he has an incentive to not screw up, Slugslinger treats his partner fairly well, mostly due to the direct link between the condition of the Decepticon's backbone infrastructure in combat and the condition of his weaponry.
Blowpipe Compression cannon The Rebirth (Part 2,3) John Moschitta, Jr.
The conniving brother-in-law of Lord Zarak, Blowpipe managed the political campaign that brought him and kept him in power. While a smooth political operator with endless connections, Blowpipe lacks the physical presence and style of a leader, causing him to resent his brother-in-law for taking all the glory when he did all the "real" work, treating combat like he would a political campaign, Blowpipe plots and plans things in advance, leaving nothing to chance, which puts him at odds with his binary bonded partner Triggerhappy, whose idea of combat tactics is to wave his gun around randomly as fast as he can and shoot really, really fast.

The Sharkticons Amphibious Anthropomorphic Shark The Transformers: The Movie The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 2) Frank Welker (in "The Return of Optimus Prime" Pt. 1), Roger C. Carmel (Movie), Bud Davis (in "The Quintesson Journal"), Jim Cummings (in "Money is Everything")
Massive, rotund, powerfully built and virtually brainless, Sharkticons are the perfect killing machines and thus the ideal enforcers to carry out the Quintessons' verdicts.[40] The jaws and teeth of the Sharkticon are so powerful and strong that they can snap a six inch-thick titanium steel rod in 0.23 of a second. Their spiked tails can crush the heaviest armor plating. But the real reason for their invincibility lies in their overwhelming numbers. Like piranhas, Sharkticons attack their prey en masse and are totally oblivious to the casualties the target might inflict. They know how to do only one thing, and that is to destroy. They perform that function perfectly and they travel in packs. Fearless and oblivious, loyal only to the master who last fed him. Powerful tail fin allows them to travel at speeds over 150 knots. Carnivorous with a voracious appetite, they possess several rows of razor-sharp teeth that can tear through solid steel. In robot mode, they carry a maceration laser that shoots salt-based corrosive liquid. They also carry a barbed mace.
Sharkticon pit executioners Unknown, possibly a Shark The Transformers: The Movie Five Faces of Darkness, Part 4 N/A
Sharkticon pit executioners are a type of Sharkticon who stands at the top of the Sharkticon pit and after they are given orders to toss the condemned victim or victims into the pit, then pulls the lever sending the victim to fall downwards into the pit where there are usally consumed by the Sharkticons. When Rodimus Prime travelled into the Autobot Matrix of Leadership he saw that they had existed along with The Quintessons millions of years ago on Cybertron and were seen fleeing from Cybertron with The Quintessons after they had been driven away by their former slaves.
Teletraan I None More Than Meets the Eye, Part 1 Five Faces of Darkness, Part 5 Casey Kasem
Teletraan I is a semi-sentient computer that runs the Autobots' spaceship/base, the Ark. Teletraan I has extensive communications abilities and can monitor Earth's television and radio broadcasts to search for news that may be of interest to the Autobots, in addition to operating the Sky Shop. Teletraan I is presumably destroyed along with the Ark during the events of "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 5".[41]
Teletraan II None Thief in the Night Grimlock's New Brain Frank Welker
Teletraan II is a supercomputer constructed by the Autobots following the destruction of its predecessor, Teletraan I. It can be easily accessed from both Autobot City and Cybertron. Teletraan II has many roles and capabilities, including recording Autobot activities for later analysis and keeping educational files on both the Autobots and Decepticons.[42]
TORQ III None Day of the Machines Gregg Berger
TORQ III is an advanced supercomputer capable of controlling and building machines. It was created by American scientists at Quantum Laboratories. Megatron reprogrammed TORQ III and ordered the computer to take control of the facility until it was destroyed by Optimus Prime. Dr. Paul Gates decided not to reactivate TORQ III until he could make him completely tamper-proof.[43]
The Quintessons None The Transformers: The Movie The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 2) Quintesson #1: Regis Cordic (Movie)
Quinetesson #2: Roger C. Carmel (Movie)
Quintesson #3: Jack Angel
Quintesson #4: Tony Pope (in "The Big Broadcast of 2006", "The Quintesson Journal", and "The Return of Optimus Prime")
Quintesson #5: Paul Eiding (in "The Quintesson Journal")
Quintesson #6: Clive Revill (in "The Return of Optimus Prime")
Quintesson Scientist: Dick Gautier (in "The Killing Jar")
The Quintessons are an ancient robotic alien race[44] who once lived on Cybertron many ages ago and their goal is to re-claim it. While they lived there, they used it as a huge factory to produce several kinds of lifeforms, including robots, who eventually become the Transformers. Extremely self-serving and devious, they travel on beams of energy. Most Quintessons have five faces each with each face being its own individual.
Ancient Cyberton's military hardware and consumer goods robots None Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) N/A
Military hardware and consumer goods were created eons ago by the Quintessons when Cyberton was a factory. They were the ancient ancestors of the Autobots and Decepticons. They were used by the Quintessons for bad reasons. They developed emotions and drove the Quintessons away from Cybertron. The lived together peacefully for some time, but it didn't last. The military hardware would go on to the being the Deceptions, while the consumer goods would become the Autobots.
Ghost and unknown robots None Five Faces of Darkness (Part 2) N/A
While Rodimus Prime was seemingly near death, he sees a ghost with some sharp teeth, who makes a shrieking sound and four unknown robots who are different colours, one which has a shield and two of them which have claws instead of hands standing in a row, who then explode. Whoever these beings are is unknown.
Autobot Matrix of leadship Ancient leaders None The Burden Hardest to Bear Unknown
While Rodimus Prime is on earth and racing with two Stunticons he then crashes. Then Stunticons then see the Autobot Matrix of leadship and remove it from him and travel back to their base on Charr and state that "Galvatron will love it". The Stunticons then give it to Decepticon leader Galvatron. When Galvatron inserts it into his fusion cannon, Ancient Autobot leaders including Optimus Prime appear, who keep telling him over and over to "Return the Matrix", which he says he will do, but doesn't.
Trannis Early Cybertronian vehicle Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Unknown
Trannis is a violet coloured Decepticon warlord, whose job is to do lots of stuff, but be forgotten about when a more famous one shows up. The "early Decepticon leader" engaged on a campaign of conquest with his soldiers. Towards the end of the Second Cybertronian War, he was chased by some Autobot. The Decepticon leader used his lightning whip to knock his attacker off his motorcycle, but then that motorcycle crashed into his and made him fall off too. Before he even got up, Sentinel Prime jumped in and kicked the snot out of him.[45]
The ASD-324-ddd-3e3c1 model Decepticons Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Unknown
The ASD-324-ddd-3e3c1 model are a type of ancient Decepticons who formed the backbone of Decepticon forces in the generation prior to Megatron and Optimus Prime. This model first appeared during the brief period of Autobot-Decepticon harmony following the Quintesson departure from Cybertron 11 million years ago. With both groups free to pursue their own interests, the Autobots took up interpretive dance while the Decepticons practiced parade-drills and organized marching. Perhaps inevitably this got boring and the Decepticons decided to conquer the planet under Trannis. These soldiers formed the bulk of that army. These Decepticon soldiers carry a semi-automatic energy rifle with a single rocket mounted on top. They also sometimes use laser-guided rocket launchers for striking against fortified structures. These Decepticon soldiers remained in service until the invention of Transformation rendered them largely obsolete, a period of almost 2 million years.[46]
Prima Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Neil Ross
Prima was created from the corpse of another robot which the Quintessons deactivated for its underperformance in its tasks. The robot was instantly smelted down and reformed into Prima, who, through unknown circumstances, became the second documented bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. Prima was unusual amongst his consumer goods brethren in that he was equipped for combat, and was made to battle in the Quintessons' gladiatorial pits. He found the endless fighting repellent, and, after a battle with Sentinel Major, decided to strike back at his masters, leaping at the group of Quintessons that had been watching the match. He was blasted out of the air, and fell to the ground in a smoking wreck, apparently deceased. He was succeeded as Matrix-bearer by Prime Nova. When Rodimus Prime journeyed inside the Matrix, Prima was the second guide he encountered, and told him the story of the Quintessons gladiatorial matches.[47]
Prime Nova Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Milt Jamin
Prime Nova is the Matrix bearer after Prima. Prime Nova, or Nova Prime, succeeded Prima as bearer of the Matrix of Leadership through unknown circumstances, and went on to fight against the Quintessons in the robot uprising that ultimately forced the evil aliens off of Cybertron. It is unknown if he died during the rebellion or not, but by the time of the first Great War, he had been replaced as Autobot leader by Guardian Prime. When Rodimus Prime journeyed into the Matrix in 2005, Prime Nova was the third guide that he encountered. Prime Nova related to him the tale of the Quintessons' robots rise to true sentience and life, and their fight back against their alien masters.[48]
Sentinel Prime Early Cybertronian vehicle Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Jack Angel
Sentinel Prime is an imposing figure, standing head and shoulders over the average Autobot. Bristling with some of the most heavy-duty weapons and armor available to the Autobot army has instilled in Sentinel Prime a supreme confidence in his own abilities as both a leader and a fighter. Unfortunately such pride usually precedes a fall, and there will always be someone out there keen to prove a point, or who merely sees Sentinel Prime as an obstacle on the path to a bigger destiny. Sentinel Prime is typically, but not always, depicted as Optimus Prime's immediate predecessor as Autobot leader. Sentinel Major was originally one of the Quintessons' slave robots on Cybertron around twelve million years ago. Unusual among his consumer goods brethren, Sentinel Prime was equipped for combat and was forced to participate in gladiatorial games for the Quintessons' amusement, wielding a spiked ball-and-chain weapon and a tire-shaped shield. He was once defeated in battle by Prima, who attacked their Quintesson masters when their match was over, only to be destroyed himself. Subsequently, the consumer goods robots rose up against the Quintessons in a rebellion that ultimately forced the aliens off the planet. Sentinel Prime survived this clash, but he and the rest of his race—now dubbed "Autobots"—were robbed of any chance of peace when the military hardware robots, now known as "Decepticons", set their sights on conquering Cybertron for themselves. Two Autobot leaders fell during the war that ensued, and Sentinel Prime inherited the Matrix of Leadership and became Sentinel Prime, leader of the Autobots. Under his leadership, the Autobots realized that they would never be able to defeat the Decepticons with firepower, and they turned instead to stealth, reconfiguring their bodies to be able to transform into other forms. With the power of his new ability, Sentinel Prime defeated the Decepticons' leader, and the Autobots won the war. The ensuing period of peace was known as the Golden Age of Cybertron, but, around nine million years BCE, the Decepticon threat re-emerged when they too adopted transformation, and coupled it with robot-mode flight powers. One of the first of this new breed of Decepticons, the malevolent Megatron, killed Sentinel Prime in combat. As he died, he handed off the Matrix to Alpha Trion, who kept it safe until the emergence of the next Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. When Rodimus Prime journeyed into the Matrix in 2005, Sentinel Prime was the sixth guide he encountered. Sentinel Prime recounted the development of transformation, the Autobot victory in the war and the rise of Megatron.[49]
Pole vault Transformer Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) N/A
The "pole vault Transformer" is an Autobot who lived between the First and Second Cybertronian War. In the year of 2006, he is a member of the Junkion tribe.

Early Autobots and Decepticons Early Cybertronian vehicles Desertion of the Dinobots part 2 N/A
After being transported to Cybertron by the Decepticon spacebridge. Spike and Carly came across a room where Carly sees several robots and then says "these must be the primitive ancestors of the Autobots, they sure have evolved over the eons". They also got to see a film that shows the battles between the early Autobots and Decepticons, which shows them having many different colors in their primitive forms.
Sentinels robots None Desertion of the Dinobots part 2 The Search for Alpha Trion N/A
Sentinels robots are combat robots consisting of different types on Cybertron, that are used by Shockwave. They can neither transform or speak and be destroyed very easily, as they are very weak. The Dinobots easily handled them when the arrived on Cybertron after traveling through the Decepticons' spacebride. Shockwave also destroyed one of them after blasting it, as he was trying to blast Spike and Carly. The female Autobots later encountered a different Sentinel robot that could fly, when they were fleeing from Shockwave. Moonracer was able to destroy it, after blasting it with her pistol.
Pole Vault Transformer Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) N/A
The pole vault Transformer is an Autobot, who lived between the First and Second Cybertronian War who participated in a pole vault competition that took place in the time of peace between the first two wars.

Millions of years later, he helped Wreck-Gar fetch their Autobot allies from Goo. In the year of 2006, he is a member of the Junkion tribe. Unless, of course, these two guys are not the same person, but just happen to share a design and color scheme. He/they transform into (a) motorcycle(s).[52]
Guardian Prime Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Charlie Adler
Guardian Prime is an ancient Autobot leader who lived between the First and Second Cybertronian War and was once bearer of the Autobot Martix of leadership, and was the fourth leader of the Autobots.

Ancient Cybertronian Constructicons Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) N/A
The Ancient Cybertronian Constructicons are a team of eight Constructicons, who lived on Cybertron millions of years ago, who were seen by Rodimus Prime, through the Autobot Matrix of leadership creating Megatron far below a city on Cybertron. These were not the same Constructions who later joined Megatron and formed Devastator. Their individual names and what became of them is unknown.
Zeta Prime Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) N/A
Zeta Prime inherited the Matrix of Leadership from Guardian Prime when he was killed during the early days of the war with the Decepticons. His stint as Autobot leader appears to have been a short-lived one, as he died before the end of the war and was succeeded by Sentinel Prime. When Rodimus Prime journeyed into the Matrix in 2005, Zeta Prime was the fifth guide he encountered, who gave a very short account of the continuing Autobot-Decepticon war.[53]
Primon Unknown Five Faces of Darkness (Part 4) Michael Bell
Primon, the "Alpha Prime", is one of the oldest known bearers of the Matrix. As he predated Prima, who is characterized as the first Transformer created on Cybertron, it is conceivable that he predates the planet itself. Primon was the earliest documented bearer of the Matrix of Leadership, but how he came to hold the talisman, and his activities during the Quintesson occupation of Cybertron, are unknown. He was succeeded as Matrix-bearer by Prima. When Rodimus Prime voyaged into the Matrix in 2005, Primon was the first guide the Autobot leader encountered. Primon related to him the story of the Transformers' creation by the Quintessons, and how they were endowed with sentience.[54]
Vector Sigma Corey Burton None The Key to Vector Sigma (part 1) The Rebirth (Part 1)
Vector Sigma is an ancient and incredibly powerful super-computer that dwells many layers below the surface of Cybertron. It is guarded by Centurion droids. When it is activated it says the following "I am Vector Sigma, before Cybertron was, I was" and then asks why that it has been activated. After Megatron created the Stunticons out of stolen earth vehicles, he then took them to Cybertron to have Vector Sigma give them life. He was told by Shockwave that Alpha Trion has the key that activates Vector Sigma, which Megatron and his Decepticons then stole from him and used to give the Stunticons life. Megatron and his Decepticons then returned to earth with the key. The Autobots also went Cybertron to stop the Decepticons and created the Aerialbots out of ancient shuttles to combat the Stunticons. Since they did not have the key to activate Vector Sigma, Alpha Trion used his own hand to active it and he ending up merging with it and separating from his robot body. On Earth Megatron found that the key could turn things into metal, which Megatron started doing. The key was later destroyed by Aerialbot leader Silverbolt in a battle that took place in Seattle Washington after which everything that had turned metal changed back to its original form. How Vector Sigma was used after that is unknown, but Optimus Prime used the Matrix of leadership to comminicate with Alpha Trion who was now a part of it.
Arcadroids None Five Faces of Darkness (Part 1) N/A
Hailing from the Nalva System, the Arcadroids are spherical aliens who can tuck their legs up and roll along the ground. A group of Arcadroids took part in the first Galactic Olympics on Athenia in the year 2005. Apparently, the bookmakers favoured them in the downhill events. Considering the stadium was completely flat, that didn't seem like much of an advantage.[55]
Athenian beings None Five Faces of Darkness (Part 1) Unknown
Beings on the planet athenia during the first Galactic Olympics are transformer-like robots who are seen in the audience during the car race between the Autobots. Also in the audience are multi-coloured humanoid aliens who are also doing the commentary for the race and are seen among Jazz after he wins the race.

Destroyed by Rodimus Prime and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership, later partially reactivated by Scourge and Starscream's ghost.
Tornedron Energy Monster Call of the Primitives Neil Ross
Tornedron was the successor to Unicron, created by Unicron's creator Primacron. Unlike Unicron, Tornedron was an energy-based lifeform, controlled by Primacron's remote control. It consumed other energies, leaving stars dead and planets inert; its final purpose was to leave the entire universe a blank slate for Primacron to do with as he pleased. Unfortunately for Primacron, while Tornedron succeeded in draining most of the universe's energy, it also became just as rebellious as his predecessor. However, Grimlock defeated it before the creature could consume its creator; he threw it into reverse, returning all the energy it stole to its original locations and dispersing the entity.
Hauler None More Than Meets the Eye, Part 1 N/A
Hauler is an Autobot crane that shows up just briefly alongside Ratchet and Cliffjumper to pull an injured Hound out of a ravine that he feel into after he was shot by Laserbeak as he was chasing him. Why it was only seen briefly and never made anymore appearances is unknown.
Seeker Acid Storm Cybertronian spacecraft Divide and conquer N/A
Acid Storm is something of an oddity among the Decepticons. He's more than happy to stay buried in the ranks, a largely anonymous soldier among a sea of very similar bots, rather than try and make a big name for himself. This is somewhat baffling, as his intelligence, data gathering skills, charisma and ability to manipulate localized weather patterns to create acid rain could possibly propel him up the ranks. But for whatever reason, he stays in his role as one of the Rainmakers rather than striking out on his own.[56]
Seeker Ion Storm Cybertronian spacecraft Divide and conquer N/A
One of the formidable Rainmakers, Ion Storm is an electrokinetic, able to personally generate EMPs.[57]
Seeker Nova Storm Cybertronian spacecraft Divide and conquer N/A
One of the formidable Rainmakers, Nova Storm is equipped with armor that enables survival in volcanic environments or even the chromosphere of a star for short periods of time. When a group of Autobots (and Chip Chase) journeyed to Cybertron to fetch a cosmitron for a wounded Optimus Prime, Megatron sent the Rainmaker trio to make things difficult for our heroes with some acid rain.

The following are components of Metroplex, Trypticon, Scorponok, and Fortress Maximus:

Name Alternate mode First & Last appearances Voiced by
Scamper Cybertronic six-wheels car Five Faces of Darkness (Part 5) The Ultimate Weapon Dan Gilvezan
Scamper is part of the composite whole that is the Autobot city, Metroplex. Although autonomous in his own right, with an impulsive and sociable personality, Scamper is an extension of Metroplex, and commonly patrols the peripheries of the giant Autobot's city form in his sports car mode alongside Slammer.
Six-Gun Metroplex Tower (Did not transform in cartoon) Thief in the Night Maurice LaMarche
The name Six-Gun isn't just metaphoric; this Autobot soldier is literally a walking, talking mass of weaponry. Six-Gun is one of Metroplex's autonomous troops, and is composed of six of the city-bot's guns. Along with Scamper and Slammer, he helps patrol and defend Metroplex's interior and periphery. Like his partners, he is mentally linked to Metroplex, and shares a similar personality. Perhaps befitting a living artillery battery, Six-Gun tends to be a bit more blustery and belligerent than his teammates.
Slammer Nothing but only a Cybertronic tank in robot mode Thief in the Night The Ultimate Weapon Chris Latta
Slammer, a drone controlled by Metroplex, does not do much. He is usually seen in the form of Metroplex's left rear tower, and is rarely seen in tank form.

Only two universes acknowledge Brunt's separate existence, and even then just as a mindless drone.
Wipeout Cybertronic car Marvel Comics No Voice
A lumbering, powerful Transformer like Trypticon has many important things to attend to (like destruction). When he needs some small task done, he calls on Wipeout to do it. Wipe-Out serves Trypticon with an astonishing level of toadying sycophancy, layering on so many compliments that he actually irritates the giant with them.

Cassette warriors (or "Mini-Cassettes", or simply "Cassettes"or “Mini-Cons” like in Transformers Robots in disguise) are tiny Transformers; they are no taller than the humans. Their alternate mode is that of a microcassette.

According to The Transformers' version, in the days of Megatron, Decepticons developed the art of espionage using cassette technology. Their first cassette, Laserbeak, could fly undetected into any Autobot stronghold, record information and then return to base. Then the Decepticons decided to increase their spying abilities with Ratbat. As a bat, Ratbat can hide in crevices that Laserbeak cannot reach, and is especially effective in tunnels, caves or in the darkness of space. Ratbat records from the Autobots' most carefully guarded secrets. The Autobots had no choice but to strike back with these Decepticon techniques of stealth, building their own force of cassette Transformers, with Blaster as their guardian. They constructed Ramhorn, the rhino, who can use animalistic force if cornered, and Steeljaw, the lion, who can crawl through the foliage of any alien world, to sneak up on Decepticons. They also bolstered their cassette force with Rewind and Eject, who can transform to robot mode and use more conventional fighting force techniques.

The alternate version of the Cassette warriors' origin is stated in the animated series. According to this version, they (or, at any rate, the beast-moded ones) were once created by the divine inventor Primacron.

Laserbeak Condor/Cassette tape More Than Meets the Eye (Part 1) Web World Chris Latta (animal noises only) Alive
Laserbeak takes pleasure in hunting his prey – usually the straggling survivors of a battle. Noticeably cunning and cautious. Will run for safety if threatened. Flies at speeds up to 250 mph. Uses two independently targetable laser cannons with extreme precision to get information from captives. Shortage of ruby crystals that powers the lasers can panic his systems into shutting down.
Rumble Cassette tape More Than Meets the Eye (Part 1) Five Faces of Darkness (Part 3) Frank Welker Alive
Rumble is your basic street punk. Small, but always acting tough. Quick temper and mean disposition. Follows Megatron's orders eagerly. Transmits immense low-frequency groundwaves to create powerful earthquakes. His small size limits his physical strength, but his ability to shatter the ground makes him difficult to approach in a fight.
Ravage Black panther/Cassette tape More Than Meets the Eye (Part 1) Call of the Primitives Frank Welker (animal noises only, with one exception) Alive
Ravage operates best alone. A creature of the night. Craftiest of all Decepticons. Adept at devising deadly new strategies. Remains aloof from others, but his deeds command their respect. Can virtually escape detection – emits an electromagnetic emission shield, has a soundless walk, disappears in subdued light or shadow. Carries two powerful heat-seeking missiles. Light-sensitive. Can be blinded. Though his last appearance is Call of the Primitives, he appears as well in Beast Wars in a different form.
Frenzy Cassette tape Countdown to Extinction The Transformers: The Movie Frank Welker Alive
If Frenzy needed to breathe, war would be his oxygen. He knows no cause, only craves to spread fear and destruction. His efforts are appreciated by other Decepticons. His devotion to warfare makes him hard to deal with on a personal level. Can roll his drums to produce a high-pitch, grating sound of 200db. Disorients and disrupts electrical flow in opponents circuitry which makes them malfunction. Physically weak. His manic attack can be countered with cool logic.
Buzzsaw Condor/Cassette tape Atlantis, Arise! Auto Berserk Chris Latta (animal noises only) Alive
Civil and sophisticated yet very cruel and destructive. Approaches his lethal tasks like a fine artist. Each deadly mission is like working on a new masterpiece. Can pinpoint and photograph a thumbtack from 20 miles away. Flies at 250 mph. Carries twin mortar cannons. Diamond-hard, micro-serrated beak can carve up almost any opponent. Due to large ego, will often sulk rather than proceed if his plans go astray.
Ratbat Bat/Cassette tape Scramble City The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 1) Frank Welker (animal noises only) Alive
Has no friends, only business partners... his only allegiance is to himself. Refuels by plunging his mecha-fangs into new cars' gas lines – the better made the car, the better the gasoline tastes. Maximum flying speed: 65 mph. Carries two radar-guided, free-electron lasers that detect the presence of an object as small as a fly. Wings contain mechanical sensors for locating fuel sources. Has one foot wingspan that can enlarge to ten feet. Wings are vulnerable to artillery.
Autoscout Scout vehicle/Cassette tape A Prime Problem None Dead
The Decepticon autoscout drone makes a very brief appearance and is seen after Soundwave ejected it into a crevice full of deadly radioactive korlonium crystals to observe them. Just as Megatron tells Soundwave not to let it make contact with the crystals, it picks one up, which causes it to explode.
Slugfest Stegosaurus/Cassette tape Call of the Primitives Frank Welker Alive
He is as slow and stupid as he looks. Plays back the messages he carries, thinks others are talking about him, goes into violent rages. End result is usually destruction of messages and nearby small towns that get in his way. In stegosaurus mode, plates on back, like teeth on a chainsaw, cut through almost any substance; carries two solar-powered vibro-cannons.
Overkill Ceratosaurus/Cassette tape Call of the Primitives Frank Welker Alive
Whether talking, terrifying, or attacking, he does everything to excess. So busy proving how tough he is by snapping cars in half between his jaws, that he forgets his mission. Can record data as a cassette, rip open the hull of a battleship as a dinosaur. Armed with two batteries of motion missiles—each reacts to any moving object bigger than a baseball and explodes on contact.
