History/origin

In all continuities of Transformers, the Autobots and their adversaries, the Decepticons, originated on the planet Cybertron. The planet is almost always described and/or shown as a purely metallic body.[1] The capital of Cybertron is Iacon. In later issues of the Marvel comic line, Cybertron had weather, such as rain.[2] Decepticon insignia from the 2007 Transformers movie The Decepticons (known as Destrons or on occasion Deathtrons in Japan) are the enemies of the Autobots, and the villains in the fictional universe of the Transformers toyline and related spin-off comics and cartoons. ... The eight planets and three dwarf planets of the Solar System. ... Cybertron from the original cartoon series Cybertron is the home world of the Autobots and Decepticons in the assorted stories in the fictional Transformers universes. ...


Hasbro toys

Hasbro launched the Transformers line with eighteen different Autobot characters, all of whom transformed into ground vehicles, while the 10 distinct Decepticons (7 packages as three came two to a box/pack) were weapons, aircraft and communications equipment. Many of the Transformers were based on Takara designs. Hasbro (NYSE: HAS) is an American toy and game company. ... Takara Co. ...


Marvel comics

Both Autobots and Decepticons were created by Primus, the Transformer god, who became the planet Cybertron. In most continuities this is still the case. Though Marvel's original series gave no purpose other than benevolent self-image creation for Transformers, some continuities add/modify that the Transformers were created to defend the universe (or simply Primus himself) from Unicron, who in the original Marvel comic was the evil brother of Primus. Primus is the benevolent godlike entity in the fictional Transformers comic universe who fought against the Chaos-Bringer Unicron. ... Unicron is a fictional character from the Transformers universes and toyline. ...


Television cartoon/movie

In the original U.S. cartoon line, Autobots were the descendants of a line of robots created as consumer goods by the Quintessons on the planet Cybertron. Their bodies were forged by the Plasma Energy Chamber and given intelligence by the mega-computer Vector Sigma in order for the work to be carried out. Eventually, they developed sentience and rebelled against their creators. However, A-3, the resistance leader was displaced from time by Quintessons from the future in order to stop the insurgency. The resistance had help from future Autobots (whose transformation technology frightened them) and A-3 returned to turn the tide by activating his coda-remote which deactivated the Quintessons' Dark Guardian robots. A cartoon is any of several forms of illustrations with varied meanings that evolved from its original meaning. ...

Cybertron from the original cartoon series Cybertron is the home world of the Autobots and Decepticons in the assorted stories in the fictional Transformers universes. ... The Plasma Energy Chamber features in the fictional Transformers: Generation One universe. ... Vector Sigma. ...


With the Quintessons cast off and forgotten, Cybertron was at peace. The consumer goods and military hardware bots renamed themselves as Autobots and Decepticons. However, the Decepticons wanted war. No match for the superior firepower and battle prowess of the Decepticons , the Autobots developed transformation technology (possibly with the help of the Dark Guardians) to win the war, bringing about the Golden Age of Cybertron. Eventually, the Decepticons also developed transformation and begun the third Cybertronian War. They would have succeeded in completing their conquest had not more time-displaced Autobots blown up an energy warehouse and brought its workers to A-3, now renamed Alpha Trion, as the new defenders of Cybertron.


For forty million years, the Cybertronians warred over the remaining energy that was left. With this crisis, the Autobots, headed by Optimus Prime, made an expedition to find new energy sources. But the Decepticons intercepted them, causing the Autobot ship Ark to crash-land on Earth.


Four million years later in 1984, the volcano that the Ark was wedged in erupted, jarring the Ark's main computer Teletraan I back online. Through use of Spy Satellites, Teletraan created new alternate forms for the Transformers out of earth vehicles. The Decepticons were revived first and then the Autobots due to Starscream's carelessness. The Autobots made an alliance with the local humans, thus beginning the Great War.


After waging the war for 21 years, the Autobots created Autobot City as their main base of operations while the Decepticons got complete control of Cybertron. In 2005, the Decepticons launched an attack on the city, resulting in the death of Optimus Prime. Optimus managed to pass the Matrix of Leadership to Ultra Magnus before his passing. The city then received messages from the bases on Cybertron's moons being devoured by the transformer demi-god Unicron. After another Decepticon attack, the Autobots were scattered to two planets, Junk and Quintessa. Forming new allies on those planets, the Autobots headed for Cybertron. A young Autobot named Hot Rod used the recovered Matrix of Leadership from Galvatron (formerly Megatron) to destroy Unicron and became Rodimus Prime. With the Decepticons in disarray, the Autobots reclaimed Cybertron, bringing about a new age of peace and prosperity. Autobot City is a city in the fictional Transformers Universe. ... Ultra Magnus is the name of several fictional and visually cognate characters from the various Transformers universes. ... Unicron is a fictional character from the Transformers universes and toyline. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


In 2006, the Great War still raged. But both sides rediscovered the existence of the Quintessons. After numerous battles, the Hate Plague was unleashed. Rodimus ordered the unaffected Autobots to search for a Quintesson to revive Optimus Prime. Using the Matrix, Optimus cured the galaxy of the plague.


After one year of peace, Galvatron gained access to the Plasma Energy Chamber. He planned to move Cybertron to Earth and use the Chamber's energies to overload the sun. However, all this was planned by Vector Sigma who wanted to restore Cybertron's Golden Age. Thanks to Spike Witwicky and the allied-Nubulons, Cybertron regained its golden hue. Optimus knew that there will always be Decepticons and the Autobots will always stop them.


Three centuries later, the Autobots and Decepticons upgraded themselves to more energy-conservative form, calling themselves Maximals and Predacons. (See Maximals) Leadership is evolved from one leader to a triumvirate. Maximals are a group in the Transformers series Beast Wars. ...


On the cartoon, all of the Autobots had a blue eye color, while all of the Decepticons had a red eye color. The Decepticons (also known as Destrons in Japan) are the enemies of the Autobots, and the villains in the Transformers toyline and related spin-off comics and cartoons. ...

2007 live-action movie

Autobot insignia from the 2007 Transformers movie

In the Transformers movie, the Autobots arrived on Earth to find the AllSpark in an effort to restore a destroyed Cybertron. The beginning of the movie, narrated by Optimus Prime, indicates that all life on Cybertron came from a "cube." Throughout the evolution of the Transformers, wars brought on the demise of their planet. Although the Autobots initially make a poor first impression with the authorities, the US government is eventually convinced by Sam Witwicky of their benevolent nature and cooperate to help them in the battle to keep the AllSpark from the Decepticons. In the movie, the word "Autobot" is introduced as an abbreviation of the phrase Autonomous robotic life form. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

Prime

The Prime title is a direct linguistic descendant of Primus. It identifies the one Autobot Commander that is entrusted with the Creation Matrix, also known as the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. The Matrix is said to choose its own holder and when it is taken by a new leader (at the old leader's death), it transforms him into a larger, more powerful, wiser Autobot commander. Holders of the Matrix become one with the Matrix, such that when the holder dies, his Spark — the Transformer life force — is absorbed into the Matrix.

Hasbro toys

Optimus Prime was among the first Transformers released from Hasbro in 1984. The character listing/mini-poster that came inside Transformer packaging identified him as "Autobot Commander," as contrasted with Megatron's title of "Decepticon Leader." Megatron is the primary fictional villain of the Transformers franchise throughout the various Generation 1 series. ...


Marvel US comics

Optimus Prime first appeared in issue #1 of Marvel's 4-issue limited series (which was extended into the main series). He led a large team of Autobots on a space mission to clear asteroids that threatened to destroy Cybertron. The initial pages did not indicate that Optimus was the mightiest or highest-ranking of the Autobots, but that series solidly established Prime as a capable leader and clearly the commander of the Autobot team that went out to clear the asteroids.


Through the comic's 80-issue run, Optimus Prime would be killed off and resurrected several times. During his absences, other Autobot officers took on the mantle of leadership within the Earth-bound Autobots. They included Prowl, Grimlock, Fortress Maximus, and others. In a future timeline (one that, per events in the "present," can no longer come to pass) the Autobots are commanded by Rodimus Prime. Prowl is the name of several fictional characters in the Transformers universes. ... Grimlock is the name of three fictional characters in the Transformers universes. ... Fortress Maximus Fortress Maximus is a fictional character from several of the Transformers series. ... Rodimus Prime (Rodimus Convoy in Japan, Rodimus Primo in France, and Captain in Italy) is a fictional character from the Transformers universe. ...


Marvel UK comics

The UK office of Marvel published comics much more often, usually weekly compared to monthly for the US comic. To accomplish this, the UK comics had additional storylines that were never included in US continuity (and are debated as to their canon-authenticity). In the UK series, much more is learned about Autobot commander Rodimus Prime, whereas in the US continuity, he is only briefly seen, most probably dead, as a prisoner of Galvatron.


Television cartoon/movie

In the animated television series, Optimus Prime was commander of the Autobots until his death in the opening minutes of the Transformers movie, where he passes on command to Ultra Magnus. Ultimately, Hot Rod is reformatted into Rodimus Prime by the Autobot Matrix of Leadership and takes command of the Autobots (in the closing minutes of the movie), leading them in the continuing television series until the resurrection of Optimus, who reassumes command. Ultra Magnus is the name of several fictional and visually cognate characters from the various Transformers universes. ... Hot Rod (Hot Rodimus in Japan) is a character from The Transformers. ... Rodimus Prime (Rodimus Convoy in Japan, Rodimus Primo in France, and Captain in Italy) is a fictional character from the Transformers universe. ... The Autobot Matrix of Leadership (or Creation Matrix) in the fictional Transformers universes, is a talisman of legend, passed down from Autobot leader to Autobot leader. ...


Post-'80s comics

Transformers were brought back to life through later comic and television runs. Commanders of the Autobots in these retellings, reimaginings, prequels and continuations included:

When Optimus Prime was seriously injured (almost fatally) by Megatron in Season 3 of Beast Wars, Optimus Primal took charge of Optimus Prime's spark and the Matrix. The exposure of Optimus Primal's body to the Matrix and Optimus Prime's spark caused him to be reformated into Optimal Optimus. For the brief period Optimal Optimus carried Prime's spark and the Matrix, he seemed to be possessed by Optimus Prime, with a slightly noticeable change in voice and demeanor.
  • Ultra Magnus — Commander of the Cybertron-based Autobots in the Dreamwave comics, volume II. Also vice-commander of the Autobot forces in the original television series' third season (and Transformers: Headmasters).
