The Autobot insignia.

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

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 reprsent 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 differing means of obtaining those goals. When the rank of Prime was given to Orion, now Optimus Prime instead of 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.


The starting members of the Autobots included Jazz and Ratchet. Zeta Prime was the leader of the Autobots for much of the war. Orion Pax took the name Optimus (not yet holding the rank Prime) during the war. He was likely second-in-command of the 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. Bulmblebee joined the Autobots before Tyger Pax. Jetfire joined the Autobots after Megatron took over 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 joins the Autobots shortly after. The time that the other Autobots joined the group is unknown.
