Encyclopedia > Energon (power source)

Energon is the primary source of power for the Transformers. Using Energon, transformers live, power their machinery, and even craft weapons. Various Transformers toys. ...

Generation 1

In its raw form, Energon is unstable and extremely harmful to most Transformers. Existing in a crystalline state, it constantly emits radiation, which can overload Transformer systems, as was discovered by Optimus Primal and his crew during the Beast Wars, when they were forced to adopt animal forms that shielded them from the radiation. If that wasn't bad enough, it is also highly explosive. Raw Energon can also exist in a stable state, called Energon Cubes, which are not to be confused with the more common use of the name, the containers for liquid Energon (below). It is unclear, however, if raw Energon Cubes can be naturally occurring - in the only documented case involving them, they came about as the result of Energon crystals' exposure to an energy beam of alien origin. Transmetal Optimus Primal Optimal Optimus Primal Beast Convoy in the on-line comic tie-ins for Robot Masters Optimus Primal is a future leader of the Maximals in the Beast Wars Transformers universe. ... Beast Wars TV series logo Beast Wars (Beasties in Canada) was a line of toys in the Transformers range, released by Hasbro in the late 1990s. ... Energon Cubes are fictional sources of energy used by Transformers. ...

For Energon to be useful for Transformers and safe to use, it must be processed from its crystal state into a liquid form, which is then imbibed by Transformers, often for pleasure as well as for maintaining their energy levels. It can be stored in a number of containers, the most famous of which is Energon Cubes, but rods and chips have also been used. Energon Cubes are fictional sources of energy used by Transformers. ...

It is possible to generate liquid Energon through the processing of assorted natural resources, such as oil, gas and electricity, though it is not exactly clear how - the empty Energon Cubes are simply placed in the vicinity of the energy source, and they will convert it into liquid Energon, which fills the cube. Liquid Energon is, of course, stable and safe to handle, though its explosive properties remain. Somewhat oddly, Energon is also an accepted form of currency in many areas of the galaxy.

Energon crystals are also usable if processed correctly. Weapons and tools made from refined energon crystals and charged are more powerful and sharp than any metal known to the Transformers. A few transformers, such as Grimlock, wield energon weapons almost exclusively. An energon blade is also known to be able to affect the indestructible spark of Protoform X; it is unknown what result it would have if taken to Starscream's immortal spark. Grimlock is the name of two characters in the Transformers Universes. ... Rampage Rampage was a Predacon from the Beast Wars Transformers universe. ... Starscream is a Decepticon in the Transformers fictional universe, having appeared in multiple incarnations in the related comics, animated television series and movie. ...

Transformers later found other sources of power, including Zone Energy and Angolmois Energy, however neither completely supplanted the need for Energon. In the Japanese continuity of the Generation One Transformers fictional universe, Zone Energy (also known as Zodiac Energy) is an almost mystical power source of which little is known. ... Angolmois energy is a power source in the Transformers Fictional Universe. ...

In at least one episode, there is mention of "Black Energon", which seems to be the result of liquid energon "going bad" (or reverting to its highly unstabe state and turning black).

Transformers Energon

"Energon" was made the primary focus of, and hence title of, the 2004-2005 Transformers toyline and cartoon. Set ten years after the previous series, Transformers Armada, the series begins with Autobots, Decepticons and humans in an alliance, having set up various "Cybertron Cities" on Earth and in various locations through the Sol system in order to mine for Energon, which in this universe is a naturally occurring mineral. Look up sol in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Energon ore is a glowing, golden yellow in colour, and poses a threat to regular Transformers if they touch it. It can safely be handled by Omnicons, who can refine it for various uses. In liquid form, refined Energon can be used for medicinal purposes on injured Transformers, allowing them to regenerate damaged body parts when immersed in it. The Omnicons can also produced solid-state refined Energon, in the form of either weapons like axes and spears, or as "Energon Stars," condensed, star-shaped portions of Energon which can connect to larger Transformers to give them a power boost. Energon Stars can be converted into pure energy for transmission from Omnicon to Autobot, and can generate the aforementioned weapons. When the energy of the weapons and/or stars depletes, the star dissolves. Energon can also be heated into a gaseous form, which is relayed through a system of pipes to power Energon Towers, which generate a protective grid of pure energy-state Energon around the planet in question. Omnicons are the main sub-group that can manipulate energon in the Transformers:Energon series. ...

The only other Transformers capable of handling raw Energon are the Terrorcons, minions of Alpha Q created to retrieve Energon so that he could use it to regenerate the planets consumed by Unicron. However, Terrorcons apparently lack the ability to fully refine Energon - rather than moulding and shaping it, they directly consume it through their mouths, and internally convert it into their own brand of negatively-charged Energon Stars, which are greenish in colour. These Energon Stars proved able to give Unicron sustenance, and could connect to larger Transformers for power boosts, but if larger Transformers attempted to directly handle them, the effects proved debilitating - when Tidal Wave attempted to unwittingly pick one up, the energy tore through his body and permanently scarred him. Alpha-Q Alpha-Q is a quintesson leader of Planet Q. His planet was destroyed by Unicron and the whole population was destroyed. ... Unicron, in the movie Planet Mode, devouring a moon of Cybertron Unicron is a planet-sized transformer who devours worlds and played the primary antagonist in his first appearance, Transformers: The Movie, in which he is voiced by Orson Welles - this was actually his final film role before his death... Tidal Wave is the name of a fictional character from Transformers Armada and Transformers Energon. ...

Alpha Q's intentions were originally unknown to the Autobots, which, coupled with his offensive methods of obtaining his desires, lead to conflict. The rebirth of Megatron forced Alpha Q to flee Unicron's body, taking its head with him, from which he proceeded to operate, forming an alliance with the Autobots and humans. When Megatron successfully reactivated Unicron's body, Alpha Q set the head on collision course with it, which had been charged with the entire Energon reserves of planet Earth. When the head impacted with the body, Earth's positively-charged Energon reacted with the negatively-charged Energon inside Unicron, resulting in a fissure in reality that led to an area of space where Alpha Q's planets were successfully reborn, sustained by Unicron's head, which had now become an Energon sun. The Decepticons, however, ransacked these new planets, stealing their Energon and once again mobilising Unicron's body. The body reclaimed its head, extinguishing the Energon sun, but was subsquently defeated by Optimus Supreme. Megatron is the leader of the Decepticons in fictional Transformers Universes. ... Optimus Supreme is the name given to the combined form of Optimus Prime and Omega Supreme in the Transformers: Energon cartoon series. ...

A short time later, Megatron, guided by the essence of Unicron, located a reservoir of Super Energon beneath Cybertron's surface. The power of this Energon was so great that Megatron and Starscream had their bodies recoloured and powers enhanced through immersion in it. A second immersion allowed Galvatron to grow to colossal height, at which point Unicron seized control of his body. Primus then merged with the Super Energon, creating a foundling sun, into which Galvatron hurled himself, preferring to die than to be manipulated by Unicron again. With this act, the sun ignited, as Primus and Unicron together bathed Alpha Q's worlds in new light. This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality. ...
