"We are autonomous robotic organisms from the planet Cybertron, also known as Autobots."
Optimus Prime

The Autobots are a group of Cybertronian freedom fighters led by Optimus Prime. Their primary foes are the tyrannical Decepticons


The Autobot symbol long predated the Autobot cause and is used to represent Cybertron across the galaxy. Eons later, when Orion Pax wanted to change society, he adopted the symbol for his movement. His movement was opposed by the Decepticons who had similar goals but different means of obtaining those goals. When the rank of Prime was given to Orion, now known as Optimus Prime, instead of to Megatron, the Decepticons waged a full-scale war on Cybertron. Given that the Autobots had several loyalists due to Optimus' new status, the Autobots fought back, each side wishing to impose their view of a just society on the planet. So many Autobot sparks were lost in the devastating conflict. When Cybertron's core shut down, the Autobots left to continue fighting across the galaxy.

Eventually, the final battle came to waged in the orbit of planet Earth. Due to efforts of Team Prime, specifically Bumblebee, the Autobots emerged as the victors of the Great War. Despite an attack from Unicron and the loss of Optimus Prime, they continued to run the planet in a peaceful manner.

After the war, the Autobots reestablished the government of Cybertron from before the Great War started, including a High Council to govern the planet. Unlike the pre-war government, there is no more caste system. Bots born from the Allspark are not assigned roles in society, instead they choose what they want to do, if they qualify for that role, much like applying for a job on Earth. The Autobot military now seems to act more like a police force than an army and only arrests Decepticons and possibly other Autobots charged with a crime rather than kill them since there is no longer a war. Not every Autobot is a police officer or soldier. The Autobot symbol now just means a Cybertronian is part of the faction. Some Autobots, such as Sideswipe, are civilians. The post-war High Council seems to be run by neutrals who don't like Autobots or Decepticons and blame Optimus Prime for causing the war.


The starting members of the Autobots included Jazz and Ratchet. Sentinel Zeta Prime was the leader of the Autobots for much of the war. Orion Pax took the name Optimus, not yet holding the rank of Prime, during the war. He was likely second-in-command of or just the field commander of the Autobots. Ultra Magnus joined the Autobots around the time of the Battle of the Hydrax Plateau. His regiment was named the Wreckers and fought the Decepticons alongside other Autobots. After Vos was destroyed, several Seekers joined the Autobots and became known as the Aerialbots. After the destruction of Praxus, Prowl and Ironhide joined the Autobots. During the Battle of the Tagan Heights, Defensor was built. Bumblebee joined the Autobots before he lost his voicebox by Megatron's claws at Tyger Pax. Jetfire joined the Autobots after Megatron took over the Trypticon Station. The Dinobots joined the Autobots before Fall of Cybertron. Omega Supreme was activated during War for Cybertron. During Fall of Cybertron, Metroplex was also activated and helped the Autobots. Smokescreen joined the Autobots after Team Prime landed on Earth. The time that the other Autobots joined the group is unknown. Any Autobots after the war seem to be either law-enforcement officers and ordinary civilians rather than warriors and military soldiers. Note: I'm just playing around here. :D
