This is a list of characters appearing in the original American Transformers cartoon, first aired between 1984 and 1987.

Autobots

(also known as Cybertrons in Japan) are the heroes in the Transformers toyline and related spin-off comics and cartoons. Their main leader is Optimus Prime, but other "Primes" have also commanded the Autobots such as Rodimus Prime. They are constantly at war with the Decepticons. In the U.S. cartoon line, the Autobots were the descendants of a line of robots created as consumer goods by the Quintessons; the Decepticons, are descended instead from robots designed as military hardware.

Other terms for the Autobots are Autorobots (in Italy), Autoboterna (in Sweden), Kibery (in Ukraine), and Robotrikim (in Israel).

Pretending to be good again, the Constructicons used their new mode, Devastator, to attack Omega Supreme and tried to have him reprogrammed to be a Decipticon as well. Omega Supreme was not fully reprogrammed, but attained an extremely serious and somewhat mean demeanor, and he became determined to stop the Constructicons at all costs. He hunted them across the universe until he found that they once again rejoined their master Megatron on Earth and he joined the Autobots there to help finish the Constructicons once and for all.

Scamper Cybertronic six-wheel car Five Faces of Darkness(Part 5) The Ultimate Weapon Dan Gilvezan
Scamper is part of the composite whole that is the Autobot city, Metroplex. Although autonomous in his own right, with an impulsive and sociable personality, Scamper is an extension of Metroplex, and commonly patrols the peripheries of the giant Autobot's city form in his sports car mode alongside Slammer.
Six-Gun None Thief in the Night Thief in the Night Maurice LaMarche
The name Six-Gun isn't just metaphoric; this Autobot soldier is literally a walking, talking mass of weaponry. Six-Gun is one of Metroplex's autonomous troops, and is composed of six of the city-bot's guns. Along with Scamper and Slammer, he helps patrol and defend Metroplex's interior and periphery. Like his partners, he is mentally linked to Metroplex, and shares a similar personality. Perhaps befitting a living artillery battery, Six-Gun tends to be a bit more blustery and belligerent than his teammates.
Slammer Cybertronic tank Thief in the Night The Ultimate Weapon Chris Latta
Slammer, a drone controlled by Metroplex, does not do much. He's usually seen in the form of Metroplex's left rear tower, and is rarely seen in tank form.
Full-Tilt Cybertronic race car Call of the Primitives Call of the Primitives No Voice
Full-Tilt is a Decepticon drone from the Generation 1 continuity family.
Brunt Cybertronic tank Marvel comics Marvel Comics No Voice
Brunt is a tank that splits into several towers of Trypticon's city mode (plus a couple of leftover pieces). In battle station mode, Trypticon uses Brunt's turret as his main cannon. Though the towers and/or cannon have been seen in each of the continuities Trypticon has appeared in, the tank mode is a much rarer sight. Only two universes acknowledge Brunt's separate existence, and even then just as a mindless drone.
Wipe-Out Cybertronic car Marvel comics Marvel Comics No Voice
A lumbering, powerful Transformer like Trypticon has many important things to attend to (like destruction). When he needs some small task done, he calls on Wipe-Out to do it. Wipe-Out serves Trypticon with an astonishing level of toadying sycophancy, layering on so many compliments that he actually irritates the giant with them.
Cerebros None The Rebirth(Part 1) The Rebirth(Part 3) Jered Baclay
Cerebros is the robot that transforms into Fortress Maximus's head, and is itself binary bonded to Spike Witwicky.
Zarak None The Rebirth(Part 2) The Rebirth(Part 3) Stan Jones

Female Autobots

Name Alternate mode First appearance Last appearance Voiced by
Arcee Covertible coupe The Transformers: The Movie The Rebirth (Part 3) Susan Blu
Most make the mistake of noticing only Arcee's gender, but these first impressions are quickly expanded upon. Arcee is a merciless and deadly warrior who's an expert in hand-to-hand combat and one of the best sharpshooters on record. The reason for her ferocity is how much she cares for her fellow Autobots and especially the humans they protect. She knows how fragile her organic companions are, and she's equally aware of the evils the Decepticons are capable of. Peers such as Hot Rod and Springer may be more durable than the humans, but she no less fights to defend them as well. They get in plenty of trouble, so someone has to be the level-headed one. (Some believe Arcee has a romantic attraction to either of those two, but that depends on who and when you ask.)
Elita One Cybertronian car The Search for Alpha Trion War Dawn (Ariel) Marlene Aragon
Elita One is a devoted Autobot and powerful warrior, fearless in the face of the enemy, but compassionate to those who need her help.
Chormia Cybertronian van The Search for Alpha Trion The Transformers: The Movie(In cybertron) Linda Gary
Chromia is a soldier under the command of Elita One and seems to function as a second-in-command for her, leading the rest of the team when Elita's not around. She's brave, hard as nails and, not surprisingly, in a relationship with Ironhide. She has also taken over from Firestar as Flareup's mentor when the latter turned out to be better suited to more offense-oriented tasks.
Firestar Cybertronian truck The Search for Alpha Trion The Search for Alpha Trion Morgan Lofting
Firestar is one of the members of Elita One's Autobot resistance and specialized in rescue missions. Practical and unprepossessing, she is nonetheless particularly useful during thefts of Decepticon Energon cubes, as her vehicle mode is capable of transporting large numbers of them,Firestar is a close friend of Inferno and Chromia, and entrusted the safety of her protégé Flareup to the latter.
Greenlight Cybertronian truck The Search for Alpha Trion The Search for Alpha Trion No Voice
Greenlight, back when she was impetuous and untested, was once one of Cybertron's most promising young scientists. But then the war came. Unlike before, when she could only abstractly mourn for the lives lost, it took a loss of a friend to make her realize that she, too, had a stake in the outcome.
Lancer Cybertronian truck The Search for Alpha Trion The Search for Alpha Trion No Voice
Lancer, back when she was impetuous and untested, was once one of Cybertron's most promising young scientists. She's thought about putting in an application at the Elite Guard, but she always gets too nervous.
Moonracer Cybertronian car The Search for Alpha Trion The Search for Alpha Trion Morgan Lofting
Amongst her colleagues, Moonracer is the joy and the laughter. The bubbly little sister, Moonracer is full of naïve optimism and, to the dismay of her partners-in-guerilla warfare, pratfalls. She worries that others, either friends or enemies, don't take her seriously and dismiss her as simply being cute. But she'll show them. She'll show them she too can be hardcore,according to Powerglide, Moonracer is the best sharpshooter in the galaxy,according to herself, she's the best in the Universe.

Headmasters

Name Alternate mode First appearance Last appearance Voiced by
Arcana[disambiguation needed] None The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Jack Angel
For a man whose work has had such a big effect on the lives of so many Nebulans and Transformers, very few people really know the distant and remote Arcana. Not even Brainstorm, who shares his psyche, can claim to truly fathom the workings of his partner's mind. But then, Arcana seems to cultivate an extremely anti-social persona unintentionally, training first as a medical doctor, only to grow bored and focus on long-forgotten and repudiated scientific lore of his planet, earning the ire of medical colleagues. Yet it was this combination of knowledge and skill, along with the combined input of his future partner, that allowed the creation of the Binary Bonding process.
Stylor None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Charlie Alder
Stylor is gorgeous. Always impeccably dressed and groomed and always in the latest style. He spends most of his time primping and polishing either Chromedome or himself, and is renowned on Nebulos for his exquisite taste and dashing good looks. Though he loves the ladies, he surprisingly doesn't have the greatest luck there, since few want to spend much time with a man who's so focused on being prettier than they are. It is suspected that Stylor volunteered for the Headmaster process simply because it was trendy at the time,his Autobot partner Chromedome, being an inveterate academic and computer nerd, is something of a frustration to Stylor, but he does his best to bring out the big guy's cooler, more social side (which he figures MUST be in there somewhere). Chromedome in return tries to get Stylor to be a little less superficial.
Duros None The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Charlie Alder
Duros was born to be a soldier on a world without war. He served for years as the head of security for the Nebulan Ruling Council and spent most of that time horribly bored and unsatisfied. The coming of the Transformers to Nebulos may have been a tragedy for most of his race, but it was quite possibly the best thing to ever happen to Duros... and also the worst,in Hardhead he has found a kindred spirit, and the two have bonded over their shared interest in combat and warfare to become one of the closest pairings among all the Headmasters. The dependable, resourceful, and stoic Duros is a great addition to the Autobot army, but his eager desire for action and love of combat have made him an outsider among the naturally peaceful Nebulans and has led him to be shunned even by his family and, most painfully, his now estranged wife. Duros shuts the pain that his failed personal life causes him away and focuses instead on being the soldier he always felt destined to be.
Gort None The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Michael Bell
The all-American boy of the Nebulan Headmasters, Gort rose up from a lowly position as stable boy to courageous defender of his planet. The idealistic teenager never has an unkind word for anybody and serves as a shining example of the best the Nebulan Headmasters have to offer,it's a pity, then, that Gort was partnered with his polar opposite, the elitist snob Highbrow, who takes considerable offense to being binary bonded with what he sees as a mere commoner. Their pairing is among the worst of the Autobot Headmasters, often detracting, not adding, to Highbrow's effectiveness in combat as he refuses to listen to Gort's suggestions except in all but the most life-threatening situations.
Grax None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Miilt Jamin
A ruthless businessman and industrialist, Grax was willing to do whatever it took to solidify his place at the top of Nebulan business world. Not that he needed much convincing to undergo the binary bonding process to combine with Skullcruncher in order to eliminate his business rivals, the Decepticon methods of utterly and cruelly absorbing all foes were just more literally bloody versions of Grax's own. Skullcruncher didn't see the similarity though, Nebulan corporate types were barely even a snack...Grax adds considerably to the somewhat slow mind of Skullcruncher, which admittedly isn't hard, but still finds most of his suggestions ignored unless they involve A) eating the corpses of your enemies B) inventive noises to make when grinding your teeth.
Vorath None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Charlie Alder
Vorath was the former Minister of Science of the planet Nebulos. A Zarak loyalist, Vorath was expelled from his office when Galen uncovered his involvement in illegal medical experiments on live subjects. Seeking revenge, Vorath gained the chance to do so and continue his experiments with the arrival of Transformers and the creation of the Headmasters, when he agreed to binary bond to Mindwipe.
Monzo None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 3) Neil Ross
On Nebulos, Monzo was a professional hyperwrestler before he became a nightclub owner. He's a brutal fellow who doesn't appreciate the fine art of tactics or strategy. He especially hates poetry, which puts him at odds with his Headmaster partner, Weirdwolf. However, they both find common ground in wanting to beat stuff up.
Spasma None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Tony St.James
The nervous and insecure Spasma was the son of a despised noble family on Nebulos, bullied and picked on his entire life while being crushed under the weight of a bankrupt family legacy. The arrival of the Transformers on his planet and the creation of the Headmasters gave him the prospect of power to escape his feeling of inadequacy, or so he thought...outwardly, Spasma had his wish fulfilled when he was binary bonded to Apeface, literally becoming the kind of bully who had previously tormented him. But all too frequently, the pressure of combat will wear away at Spasma, until Apeface's actions trigger a torturous flashback from the Nebulan's past, reducing him to a whimpering, crying wreck.
Krunk None The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Chris Latta
Krunk is Zarak's nasty, brutish bodyguard. He takes orders from Zarak without question, no matter how illegal or rotten they are,as Snapdragon's Headmaster, he enhances the Decepticon's thuggish personality rather nicely. Two peas in a pod, really.
Daniel Witiwicky None The Transformers: The Movie The Rebirth (Part 3) David Mendehall
Daniel Witwicky is the human son of Spike and Carly Witwicky. He is approximately 12 years of age in 2005, and was presumably born sometime between 1990 and 1993. He is the grandson of Sparkplug Witwicky.

Daniel often gets into trouble, which requires either his father or the Autobots to save him. He is very good friends with the Autobots, particularly Wheelie, Grimlock, and Hot Rod, but the one he's closest to is Arcee, who views him as a surrogate son. Come to think of it, he doesn't seem to have any human friends. What a shock.

Daniel is (sometimes) the Headmaster partner to Arcee.

Targetmasters

Name Alternate mode First appearance Last appearance Voiced by
Haywire electro-laser cannon The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Rob Paulsen
One of the younger Nebulans to binary bond to a Transformer, Haywire is very much of the "act first, think later"-impulsive-teenage mold. In that respect, the relationship between Haywire and his partner Blurr is one where they get on like a house on fire, but also a classic example of the lack of planning in the early stages of Targetmasters bonding for how effective a combat team they would make. Transforming into an electro-laser cannon, Haywire is just as hyperactive as his partner in combat, often more concerned with how often he fires than where he's aiming or how effective his shots are.
Pinpointer Pistol The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Frank Welker
Pinpointer is a Nebulan of few words. He's binary bonded to Crosshairs.
Firebolt electrostatic Discharge rifle The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Dick Gautier
Firebolt was once a quiet scholar on the pacifistic planet of Nebulos, where he was renowned as one of its top atomic physicists. Beneath his meek and reserved exterior, however, young Firebolt yearned for a life of action and excitement. His dreams of adventure might never have come true, if not for the intervention of the Decepticons. When the call went out for Nebulans who would be willing to take up arms in defense of their planet, Firebolt was amongst the first to volunteer. Undergoing the extensive and painful procedure known as Binary bonding, Firebolt was given a special suit of black and grey armour and granted the power to transform himself into a powerful double-barreled weapon called an "electrostatic discharge rifle",although eager for the chance to make a difference and have some fun, Firebolt soon found that his own exuberance paled in comparison to his Targetmaster partner: a young Autobot named Hot Rod. Firebolt's opinion of this situation is what could be described as 'cautiously optimistic' - he is excited by all the action and adventure of being a Targetmaster, but he is also very nervous at some of the risks that Hot Rod insists on taking at times.
Recoil musket laser rifle The Rebirth (Part 1) The Rebirth (Part 3) Johnny Haymer
One of the older Nebulans to join the Autobots, Recoil was a former All-World Prismaball champion on his home planet, until age finally caught up with him. While helping to keep Nebulos safe is part of why he agreed to undergo binary bonding to become a Targetmaster, a large part was to prove to himself as much as to others that he still had what it takes. Transforming into a version of Kup's original old-style musket laser, Recoil has found a good match with the crusty Autobot, both seeking the respect they feel their age and experience deserves.
Peacemaker sonic blaster The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 3) Steve Bulen
Peacemaker is an upbeat, almost contagiously positive Nebulan police officer. He keeps trying to cheer up his Autobot partner Pointblank to little result. Pointblank doesn't feel the Autobots should have involved the Nebulans in the war to begin with, and so disapproves of his partner and his advice on principle. Those who know him, though, say that Peacemaker has actually made progress in improving the dour Autobot's world view. Not a lot of progress, mind you... Thankfully Peacemaker knows how to be patient, loves a challenge, and is firm in his belief that optimism leads to success.
Spoilsport duple cannon The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 3) Danny Mann
Spoilsport has a rather appropriate moniker, given that he spoils the fun of his partner Sureshot by being an equally good marksman. In a contest between an intelligent gun and an intelligent gunner, the gun gets a majority vote. His partner resents his interference, and in his turn, the Nebulan resents Sureshot for his lack of appreciation. It can't help that Sureshot is a jerk, of course, and presumably he never calls.
Nightstick beam gun The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 3) Peter Cullen
Back on Nebulos, Nightstick was a master criminal. For some reason, he gave that up to undergo binary-bonding to Cyclonus. The loyal and honorable Decepticon warrior often finds himself at odds with the very dishonorable Nightstick and generally considers him an irritating pest.
Aimless beam gun The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Milt Jamin
Aimless should have been called "Useless". This Nebulan's success rate when he tries to hit a target is unknown, because that would require him to, you know, actually try. Together with his Targetmaster partner Misfire, he's a danger to himself and others. Mostly others.
Fracas Incendiary cannon The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Neil Ross
Fracas's new Targetmaster body allows him to transform into an incendiary cannon for his new Decepticon partner Scourge—fitting, since Fracas is himself a hot-running, volatile scrapper who explodes into violent rages.
Caliburst lange barrel gun The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 2) Johnny Haymer
Like his binary bonded partner Slugslinger, Caliburst is merely putting on an act and playing the role of the cold and fearless Decepticon warrior he outwardly projects; it's just that he's generally more adept at keeping the mask up because of his former life as an actor. While not a good actor, more the kind to be found in the freezer section next to the other pork products, Caliburst does know the importance of staying in character. Given that he joined the Transformer conflict for the money because there was no one left on Nebulos that could stomach appreciate his "talent", he has an incentive to not screw up,Slugslinger treats his partner fairly well, mostly due to the direct link between the condition of the Decepticon's backbone infrastructure in combat and the condition of his weaponry.
Blowpipe Compression cannon The Rebirth (Part 2) The Rebirth (Part 3) John Moschitta,Jr.
The conniving brother-in-law of Lord Zarak, Blowpipe managed the political campaign that brought him and kept him in power. While a smooth political operator with endless connections, Blowpipe lacks the physical presence and style of a leader, causing him to resent his brother-in-law for taking all the glory when he did all the "real" work,treating combat like he would a political campaign, Blowpipe plots and plans things in advance, leaving nothing to chance, which puts him at odds with his binary bonded partner Triggerhappy, whose idea of combat tactics is to wave his gun around randomly as fast as he can and shoot really, really fast.

Gestalts

Name Alternate mode First appearance Last appearance Voiced by
Devastator None The Secret of Omega Supreme The Burden Hardest to Bear Arthur Burghardt
Devastator is an immensely powerful warrior, and in that sense the combination of the Constructicons into a merged being is a huge success. Mentally, on the other hand, he's very much less than the sum of his parts. Devastator's primitive psyche is limited to only the thoughts and actions on which all his components can agree, which results in raging bouts of destructive fury. Given the sheer power Devastator brings to these rages, Megatron has no complaints.
Menasor None The Key of Vector Sigma (Part 2) The Ultimate Weapon Roger C. Carmel - Regis Cordic
Menasor was meant to be the ultimate Decepticon weapon, and perhaps he would have been if not for the fatal flaw in his design. His mind was designed to merge together the psyches of the five Stunticons who compose his form. Unfortunately, the great depth of loathing the four limb components feel towards Motormaster, to say nothing of the fact that all five of them are psychotic as individuals anyway, has created a primal psychological rift and left Menasor an unpredictable mass of conflicting, chaotic impulses. Extremely powerful, highly mentally unstable, and prone to violent tantrums where he lashes out at anything in range, Menasor is not a weapon to point and fire, but a raging monster to turn loose on the battlefield and then get as far away from as possible.
Abominus None Grimlock's New Brain The Rebirth (Part 2) Jim Gosa
Even more so than the other Decepticon combiners, Abominus is a being of mindless fury. He's not truly a warrior—he's an animal, the destructive rages of the Terrorcons that compose him personified. His commanders can't give him orders simplistic enough for him to understand, so they just point him in the direction of objects that need to be smashed, and turn him loose. The only thing that distinguishes him from a wild beast is the enjoyment he derives from his terrible rampages.
Bruticus None Starscream's Brigade The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 1) Roger C. Carmel
Bruticus is the combined form of the Combaticon team. A terrifying sight on the battlefield, Bruticus is among the strongest of all Transformers. He can pulverize a suspension bridge with one 14,000 psi punch. He can lift up to 500,000 pounds. His armor is impervious to most artillery and radiation.
Predaking None Five Faces of Darkness(Part 5 The Return of Optimus Prime(Part 2) Bud Davis
Predaking is the ferocious fusion of all five of the Predacons: Divebomb, Headstrong, Rampage, Tantrum, and team leader Razorclaw. Predaking is highly unusual, perhaps even unique, among combiners by the successful fusion of each of his component elements' physical abilities and personalities. Most others of his kind are rendered stupid, suggestible, or borderline insane by the merging of minds, but the five Predacons are united by their shared love of the hunt, and produce a single complete persona. Between his physical prowess, unexpected mental acuity, and animalistic, almost instinct-fast hunting actions, Predaking is one of the most dangerous and intimidating weapons ever added to the Decepticon ranks. As a weapon he is without equal; as a warrior he is without restraint. He can lift one million tons without straining a circuit. When Predaking is on your trail, all hope is lost.
Superion None The Key of Vector Sigma(Part 2} The Return of Optimus Prime(Part 1) Frank Welker - Ed Gilbert
In his combined form, his thought capacity is reduced to two things: destroy the Decepticons, and protect the humans. Because of this, he sometimes has difficulty adapting to new situations,In all continuities he is depicted as being the chief rival and equal of Menasor. However, this makes more poetic than literal sense, as the real-life scale difference between their component vehicle parts would suggest a rather drastic disparity in actual stature.
Computron None Grimlock's New Brain The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 1) Bert Kramer
Computron is the combination of the five Autobot Technobots. Typically, the combiner process dulls the wits of the individual transformers, however, such is not the case for Computron. The Technobots managed to remedy that problem, but in the process, severely lagged Computron's reaction time. Before coming to any decision, Computron must analyze the opinions of every individual Technobot, resulting in his falling behind in battle. In the end, he always makes the correct choice, but more often than not it's too little, too late. Thanks for nothing, brainiac!
Defensor None B.O.T The Return of Optimus Prime (Part 1) Chris Latta
The combined form of the five Protectobots Defensor exists specifically to safeguard human life. In many ways he feels about the human race the way a parent would their children and he would give his life away in an instant rather than let one human come to harm. Defensor is emotionally attached to humans on a level that sometimes worries his fellow Autobots. He identifies with them the same way a sheep dog would with its flock or a puppy with its human owners. As far as Defensor is concerned the humans are his "kind." Sadly the titanic robot giant's attempts at personal interaction and friendly exchanges with humans tend to fail. We humans tend to be more wary and frightened of his alien nature and great size than Defensor can understand. Despite this, Defensor is fairly well adjusted mentally compared to almost every other Generation 1 gestalt.
