In the 1984 animated Transformers television series energon cubes are created by the Autobots and Decepticons on Earth. The Autobots trade with the humans for the power, while the Decepticons steal the power. For all practical purposes, Energon functions as fuel or "food" for the Transformers; in some episodes, Decepticons are depicted as literally drinking from Energon cubes.
In the 1986 video game The Transformers the player must collect four pieces of the energon cube to complete the game.
In the board game Monopoly: The Transformers Collector's Edition energon cubes replace the houses.
