However, after Bumblebee and Ratchet destroyed the Pillars, wounded by Megatron before Optimus kills him, he is later killed by Optimus with Megatron's shotgun for betraying himself. His head made a cameo at the KSI building, downloading his mind in Age of Extinction.

In the first film, Optimus Prime arrives on Earth with Ratchet, Ironhide, and Jazz trying to find the AllSpark. At Mission City, he kills Bonecrusher and battles Megatron, but Sam pushes the AllSpark into Megatron's chest, killing him and destroying the cube. As a result, Bumblebee spoke for the first time and Cybertron can no longer be restored. Afterward, Optimus and the other Autobots form an alliance with the humans and work closely with NEST. In Revenge of the Fallen, Optimus is killed by Megatron after a battle with him, Starscream and Grindor. Near the end of the film, he is later revived by Sam with the Matrix of Leadership and is fused with Jetfire, making him more powerful. Optimus Prime then faces The Fallen and Megatron. After a vicious fight, Optimus severely wounds Megatron and kills the Fallen. In Dark of the Moon, Optimus revives Sentinel Prime using the Matrix of Leadership and revealed he was the leader of the Autobots before him. But, Sentinel later betrays the Autobots and joins the Decepticons to restore Cybertron with the Pillars. During the battle in Chicago, Optimus kills Sentinel Prime (avenging Ironhide's death) along with all Decepticons, including the Driller, Shockwave, and finally Megatron. Optimus has finally added a trailer similar to his Generation 1 counterpart,[1] and has been redesigned to look more heroic.[2] The trailer contains enhanced weapons, a shield and a flight gear. Optimus loses his right arm to Sentinel Prime at the film's climax. In Age of Extinction, he is being hunted by both the Transformer-hating Harold Attinger and a cybertronian bounty hunter, Lockdown, who is working for the Creators to bring him to Cybertron. Soon after his capture and in the battle of Hong Kong, Optimus tames the four Legendary warriors (the Dinobots) and rides Grimlock to fight Galvatron (Megatron reincarnated) and his new army of man-made Transformers. After defeating Galvatron's army, he successfully kills Lockdown and Harold Attinger (avenging the deaths of Ratchet, Leadfoot, Sideswipe, Dino and Lucas). He then sets the Dinobots free and ask his fellow Autobots to protect Cade and his family before taking the Seed into space and going after the Creators. In The Last Knight, when frozen and floating past Jupiter, he arrives at Cybertron, a dead planet where he finds Quintessa, who gives him a red marking and wants to destroy Earth, which she reveals is an ancient enemy planet called "Unicron". She tells Prime that he must retrieve the staff to rebuild the planet, and brainwashes him to do her bidding. Prime's eyes turn purple and he becomes Nemesis Prime. Later, just as he is about to kill Bumblebee, Bee speaks for the second time. The sound of his friend's long lost voice causes Prime to return to normal, shown by his eyes turning blue again and his red marking disappeared. He rides with Dragonstorm into battle. After "killing" Quintessa and saving both worlds, Optimus and all Transformers finally leave Earth to return to Cybertron as it remains in orbit over Earth.

However, near the end, his real voice spokes again to Optimus, turning him back to normal and snapping him out of Quintessa's brainwashing.

Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon, Abby Quinn, Rachel Crow, Ricardo Hoyos, Gracie Dzienny, Kenneth Choi, and Stephen Schneider will play unnamed characters in Bumblebee.

Other Cybertronians[edit]

  • The AllSpark Mutations are Earth machinery that were brought to life as feral and dangerous Cybertronians by Sam Witwicky with the AllSpark in the 2007 film and Revenge of the Fallen.
    • The Nokia-bot is an AllSpark Mutation transformer who was a Nokia N93i cell phone formerly owned by Glen Whitmann and transformed into a Transformer by the power of the AllSpark. It is a rather violent and hysterical creature, armed with several weapons. When it tried to break out of the case with its bullets and missiles, it was killed by an energy pulse by Simmons. A Nokia-bot also appeared in the Verizon FiOS Commercial where Michael Bay bashed aside the Nokia-bot and it exploded that his explosions are awesome.
    • A Steering Wheel bot is the AllSpark Mutation transformer who appeared as a steering wheel transformed into a creepy wheel with spider-like limbs. It was seen hugging a woman's face while screaming.
    • An Xbox 360 robot is an AllSpark Mutation transformer who is a type of an Xbox 360 console. It was first seen inside the box while a man drops it and runs away. In the IDW comics, it was destroyed by Ironhide.
    • Dispensor is an AllSpark Mutation transformer who transforms into a Mountain Dew vending machine, and appeared to have four arms (with three original arms and a cannon on the right arm). In Age of Extinction, Dispensor appeared in the toyline, a remodel and green repaint of Payload with a new head model and a cannon. In the IDW comics, he was destroyed by Ratchet.
    • The Appliancebots are a group of common household appliances that came to life to kill Sam, and later killed by Bumblebee. Those include Dickbot the blender guy, Ejector (Toaster), a Dyson Vacuum cleaner, a Microwave oven bot, a Waffle iron, a Cappuccino bot, a Garbage disposal bot, a Hand mixer, a Stand mixer and a Cisco Systems Aironet.
  • The Seven Primes (three of them are voiced by Michael York, Kevin Michael Richardson, and Robin Atkin Downes) are the first Cybertronians who came into distant galaxies looking for planets where they could build Sun Harvesters. It was during the Dynasty's rule that Sun Harvesters were not to be used in solar systems containing life. In 17,000 B.C.E., one of them defied his brothers' rule about destroying planets with life by powering up the Sun Harvester, an act that ignited a war and earned him the name The Fallen. To stop the Sun's destruction the remaining six stole and hid the Matrix of Leadership, sacrificing themselves to make a tomb of their own bodies, sealing the Matrix away. When Sam dies, he has a vision of the Dynasty and they tell him he has earned his destiny. The Dynasty then resurrects Sam, who uses the Matrix of Leadership to bring Optimus back to life and kills the Fallen. Their bodies resemble their brother the Fallen.
  • The Creators are a mysterious extraterrestrial race who are the creators of all Cybertronians, based on the Quintessons from the Generation 1 lore. In the beginning of Age of Extinction, 65 million B.C.E., they invade the organic planets, including Earth, using the Seeds, cyberforming the planet, and ending the age of the Dinosaurs and causing the KT extinction event. Later, they harvest and use the resultant metal and the AllSpark to build the Cybertronians—Autobots and Decepticons. Million of years later, they send their bounty hunter Lockdown to Earth—to bring Optimus Prime alive, wanting their "chessboard cleaned" and wanting him to rebuild Cybertron, and kill the remaining Autobots and Decepticons. They appear to be hostile and consider the intermingling of species to upset the cosmic balance. At the end after Lockdown was killed, Optimus flies into space from Earth that he is coming for them with the Seed. They don't appear in body, but a pink, organic-looking hand is briefly seen inside of one of their ships.
  • Lockdown (voiced by Mark Ryan in the film[4], Gregg Berger in Rise of the Dark Spark) is a ruthless, cold hearted and barbaric Cybertronian bounty hunter who transforms into a grey 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Coupe and speaks with a Cockney accent.[7] His robot mode slightly resembles Optimus Primal's appearance in Beast Machines,[6] but also features a scar on his left face and he is capable of turning his helmet into a gun, and uses his hook (from the Revenge of the Fallen deluxe version), a sword and a booster shot. In the film, Lockdown is working for Quintessa to bring Optimus Prime to rebuild Cybertron. He made a deal with Attinger (though he does have a slur towards humans, much like Attinger does to transformers, yet neither seem to hate each other specifically) to kill the remaining Autobots including Ratchet, Leadfoot, (possibly Sideswipe and Mirage) and Deceptions on Earth while offering the Seed in exchange for aid in hunting Optimus. At some point in the past, Lockdown also captures the Legendary "Dinobot" Knights and took over the Knight Ship, but they are later freed by Optimus in order to destroy Galvatron's army. Later in a duel at Hong Kong, Lockdown is finally killed by Optimus Prime, who vertically bisects him, avenging the deaths of Ratchet, Leadfoot, and Lucas. Afterward, his body was destroyed by his own grenade, when Optimus destroys the rest of the KSI Drones.
    • The Mercenaries are a group of techno-organic humanoids of Lockdown. They use the Drone balls to roll and see anything aboard the ship, appeared to have red or green lights on their faces and reuse the Decepticon weapons. Several of them are killed by Cade, Shane, and Crosshairs, while the surviving ones remained inside Lockdown's ship, as the two Drone balls are also killed by Cade on the Knight ship. They also used the Cybertronian starfighters, which first appeared in Dark of the Moon for Decepticons to first use in the battle of Chicago. It is revealed in The Last Knight that they were defeated by Daytrader, taking the Knight Ship for the Autobots.
    • The Steeljaws are the techno-organic wolf-like creatures and the minions of Lockdown. They are colored black and blue in the toyline. During the Autobots' aid in the Knight Ship while hanging on the cables, they are killed by Cade Yeager and Bumblebee. They were originally called Wolves (appeared in Trading cards), but later these names were changed to Steeljaws. The Steeljaws do not transform in the film, though they do transform in the Age of Extinction toyline. It is revealed in The Last Knight that they were defeated by Daytrader, taking the Knight Ship for the Autobots.
    • The Stupid Drones are a group of wheeled-bots of Lockdown who have cartoon-like eyes and have claws. It is revealed in The Last Knight that they were defeated by Daytrader, taking the Knight Ship for the Autobots.
  • Quintessa (voiced and portrayed by Gemma Chan) is a mysterious Cybertronian sorceress who claims to be the "Prime of Life" and the creator of the race of Transformers who attempts to destroy Unicron. She has a Staff with the power of Cybertron, but her Knights betrayed her and stole her Staff and hidden on Earth. After Cybertron was destroyed in Dark of the Moon, she plans to destroy Earth to rebuild the planet, with Optimus Prime (who was coming for questions on why his Creators want him back), who formerly becomes "Nemesis Prime", and Megatron. After failing her plan to retrieve her staff, she disguised herself as a human offers the Humans on how to kill Unicron. She appears to have the ability to create balls of blue electricity and throw them as projectiles.
    • The Infernocons are a group of demon-like Cybertronians and the guardians of Quintessa who combine into Infernocus. There are six Infernocons to form Infernocus, but they are soon killed by Optimus Prime at the climax by having their heads cut off in one motion.
      • Skulk – An Infernocon who forms the torso of Infernocus and has no bestial form.
      • Thrash – An Infernocon who transforms into a two-headed land dragon. He forms the left arm of Infernocus. Thrash is a redeco of Twinstrike from Transformers: Prime.
      • Rupture – An Infernocon who transforms into a wyvern. He forms the right arm of Infernocus. Rupture is a redeco of Divebomb from Transformers: Prime.
      • Gorge – An Infernocon who transforms into a bipedal land dragon. He forms the left leg of Infernocus. Gorge is a redeco of Rot Gut from Transformers: Prime.
      • Glug – An Infernocon who transforms into a lizard-like land dragon. He forms the right leg of Infernocus. Glug is a redeco of Rippersnapper from Transformers: Prime.
  • The Guardian Knights[83] (also known as the Knights of Iacon) are a group of the first Cybertronians created by Quintessa who betrayed her and hide an ancient Cybertronian staff on Earth within their ship and gave it to Merlin. There are 12 of them who formed into Dragonstorm.
    • Dragonstorm is the combined form of the 12 Knights who appears as a mechanical three-headed dragon.[84]
      • Stormreign is a "red Knight" and the leader[85] of the Knights of Iacon who gave Merlin the Staff and combine with his fellow Knights into Dragonstorm. In the toyline, only Stormreign and Dragonicus can combine to form Dragonstorm where he forms the tail and central head.
      • Dragonicus is a Guardian Knight who combines with his fellow Knights into Dragonstorm. In the toyline, only Dragonicus and Stormreign can combine to form Dragonstorm where he forms most of the body.
      • Steelbane is a Guardian Knight who combines with his fellow Knights into Dragonstorm. He and Skullitron do not transform in the film, but only in the toyline as a mechanical wyvern.
    • A Talisman Knight is a Guardian Knight who only appeared in The Last Knight. Under unknown circumstances, he was present during the Battle of Chicago, where his ship crashed and left him dormant. When a group of kids enter a war torn area of Chicago to see some "dead robots", they are frightened by a dying Knight awakening while looking in his crashed ship. Cade discovers a Knight, who refuses treatment and gives Cade the talisman before dying. The Talisman Knight's character model is a recycled version of Dragonicus.
    • Skullitron is a Guardian Knight who only appeared in The Last Knight. When Cade and Viviane arrive to find the staff, the TRF arrive after Cade accidentally awakens Skullitron. Skullitron attacks everyone present to protect the staff, but is shot multiple times by the TRF and falls into a large crevice to his death. He and Steelbane do not transform in the film, but only in the toyline as a mechanical wyvern where he is a redeco of Steelbane with a new head.
  • Unicron is a planet that formed Earth, the Chaos Bringer and Cybertron's ancient enemy who finally appeared in The Last Knight. His six horns are around the planet when Sir Edmund Burton searched a book with pictures of Unicron and Cybertron itself. Later, Quintessa plans to destroy Unicron, so that Cybertron will live. Two worlds begin to collide, but two worlds are saved by the Autobots and the Knights who retrieved the Staff and vanquished Quintessa. However, unaware to them after they leave, Quintessa survived and disguised herself as a Human and continues her plans to destroy him.
  • A Vatti Transformer (voiced by Reno Wilson) is a Cybertronian who only appeared when Daytrader was collecting the remain pieces. It transformed into one with two parts until it was killed by Bumblebee.
  • The Watch that Killed Hitler is a small yellow Cybertronian watch that is kept in a glass case by Sir Edmund Burton who appeared in The Last Knight. It keeps various deadly weapons hidden inside its inner workings that it deploys when a target is close enough. As the name suggests, this watch killed Hitler. Sir Edmund Burton used this watch to discourage British guards from stopping his conversation with the Prime Minister.

Unused Transformers[edit]

Several Transformers were set to appear in the films, but cut or removed in the final cut of the films and their roles were taken to the Transformers that appeared. They only appeared in the toylines—including Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Age of Extinctionand Transformers: The last knight"

  • Wreckage is a Decepticon who was originally supposed to appear in the first film, transforming into a M1126 Stryker ICV as his alt mode, which had been designed, but eventually didn't get used in the film.[86][87] Wreckage appears in the 2007 film toyline and Revenge of the Fallen prequel comics, transforming into an ice-based camouflaged Stryker and later a natural camouflaged version. It is revealed in the comics that Wreckage is the reason humans know so much about the Transformers. He is killed by Starscream for "treason."
  • Tidal Wave is a Decepticon who was originally supposed to appear in the first film. Michael Bay also considered the character, capable of turning into an aircraft carrier, but was dropped for cost reasons.[88] The character was included in one of Orci and Kurtzman's drafts of the script,[89] and concept art was even created for it.[90]
  • Silverbolt is an airborne Autobot who was originally supposed to appear in Dark of the Moon. A January 2010 interview with late actor James Avery claimed that he would be providing the voice of Silverbolt in the third film,[91] but no such character appeared in the finished movie, and Avery died on December 31, 2013, a day before 2014, age 68 from complications following open heart surgery.

  • Slash is a Dinobot stealth fighter who transforms into a mechanical spine-clawed Velociraptor. He was seen in promotional images for Age of Extinction and he was also made into a toy, but wasn't seen in the film's trailers and spots.[8] He is colored light green and light blue in the toy line. In the toy line, Hound rides Slash and in the concept art, a large number of Slashes charging into Hong Kong alongside Scorn. Slash's toy design is based on these pieces of concept artwork. In the Contrust-Bots line, his head is the same for Dinobot's from Beast Wars. In the concept art, he was known as "Velociraptor" and "Raptor".
  • Slog is a large Dinobot who transforms into a mechanical spiked Apatosaurus. He was seen in promotional images for Age of Extinction and he was also made into a toy, but wasn't seen in the film's trailers and spots.[92] He is colored red and black in the toy line and he looks similar to Sludge.[93]

He transforms into a Sikorsky MH-53 like Blackout and Grindor (but differs by having a rescue-themed coloration and an inflatable-raft that can turn into a gun), and later a Eurocopter HH-65 Dolphin. He was supposed to appear in the first film.

  • Prowl was one of the first candidates for the first-film, but got replaced by Barricade. Likewise, he also turns into a police car.
