He was among the Thirteen created by Primus to defeat Unicron and witnessed the activation of the Well of Allsparks.
Nexus appears in Transformers: Exiles, where he was formed from two Velocitronians - Clocker and Mainspring, one Cybertronian named Chaindrive, and two Junkions - Cannonspring and Pinion; each one holding a fragment of the Cyber Caliber.
- Prior to the Transformers: Prime series, Nexus Prime was originally called Nexus Maximus, however, it was changed to Nexus Prime due to the previous name being deemed inappropriate for a younger demographic.
