The Transformers (animated series) characters

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

Autobots

The 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).

Devastator The 6 Constructicons Heavy Metal War The Burden Hardest to Bear Arthur Burghardt
Devastator is a combination of the six Constructicons, Hook, Scrapper, Mixmaster, Long Haul, Scavenger, and Bonecrusher. Devastator was the strongest Transformer when he was first introduced on the series. The Constructicons were originally master designers and builders on Cybertron before the war between Autobots and Decepticons. They were good friends with Omega Supreme and had built some of the most magnificent cities on Cyberton. Megatron had captured and reprogrammed them to become Decepticons, they then began destroying the cities they once built. Omega Supreme captured them and tried to re-program them but learned too late that the programming could not be reversed. 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.
