Arcee Grey Griffin Another scout often paired with Bumblebee, Arcee is determined, hardened, and will do anything for her fellow Autobot.

Bulkhead Kevin Michael Richardson The bulky muscle of Team Prime, Bulkhead can punch his way out of almost any situation. Bulkhead's intelligence is occasionally called into question, but even if he's not the smartest Autobot, he may have the biggest heart. Green truck
Moonracer Tara Strong Optimus' weapon specialist, Moonracer always tries her best to keep a positive attitude in every situation. Sure, her particular skill set involves blowing things up, but she would usually prefer a peaceful route. Moonracer is fiercely loyal to her friends, though, and isn't afraid to blast some 'Cons should it become necessary. Teal sports car
Ratchet Jeffery Combs Optimus' medic and tech specialist, Ratchet is one of Optimus' oldest comrades and friends. Though Ratchet may seem cranky and less than enthusiastic, he will repair any injuries his Autobot companions may suffer in an instant. Because of his invaluable skill set, he doesn't go out into the field often. That doesn't mean he can't fight, though. He's more than capable. Ambulance


Name Voice Description Altmode
Megatron Hugo Weavings The fearsome leader of the Decepticons, Megatron will stop at nothing to procure power for himself and the Decepticons.

Starscream Steven Blum Megatron's right-hand bot, Starscream wants nothing more than to be the leader of the Decepticons, and is more than willing to knock off Megatron to do it. Starscream is cunning, manipulative, and utterly remoreseless. Nobody knows exactly why Megatron continues to keep him around. We think it's because he finds him amusing. Jet plane
Soundwave Hugo Weavings Megatron's stoic and unfeeling lieutenant, Soundwave is difficult to read. He can tap into satellite feeds, radio waves, and any other signal you could imagine. He also enjoys recording audio played around him and playing it back at a convenient time. He also has several minions to deploy whenever necessary. Jet plane
Rumble/Frenzy Robert McCollum Two of Soundwave's minions. Rumble is red, and Frenzy is blue. The two robots are known for destroying structures with their earth-shaker weapons. Even if they aren't huge, these spunky twins are a major pain in the Autobots' tailpipes. Cassette tapes

Knock Out Daran Norris The Decepticons' medic, Knock Out's not only an automobile, but an automobile enthusiast. Knock Out is incredibly vain and full of himself to the point where certain 'cons are confused as to why he even bothers helping others. He is a skilled doctor, though. Don't doubt that. Red sports car
Breakdown Adam Baldwin A loyal soldier to Megatron and Knock Out's partner, Breakdown is tough as nails, and very paranoid. Breakdown prefers the strategy of "shoot first, ask questions later". Though Breakdown would never betray Megatron, he does have a sense of honor, and has spared an Autobot or two. Blue truck
Barricade Marcus Mauldin A Decepticon soldier who loves nothing more than to deceive his foes into trusting him before crushing them beneath his foot. Barricade is put in charge of recon into human settlements, and his altmode definitely suits that purpose. Police car

Dr. Isaac Sumdac Tom Kenny Sari's father and brilliant inventor, Isaac's mechanical prowess has earned him reputation throughout the scientific community. Though he is a legitimately caring father, he sometimes gets so wrapped up in his work that he doesn't notice giant alien robots fighting outside his house.

Wheeljack Todd Haberkorn The brains of Team Elite, Wheeljack is an...eccentric scientist. Wheeljack is both one of his team's greatest asset and loosest cannon.

Mirage Nolan North An Autobot infiltrator, Mirage was once part of Cybertronian high society until the war began. Now he serves as Elita-One's stealth agent.

Jet-black expensive car
Red Alert Michelle Ruff Team Elite's medic, Red Alert spends most of her time patching up either Wheeljack or Rodimus.

Name Voice Description Altmode
Shockwave Wally Wingert A Decepticon commander and scientist, Shockwave has very little loyalty to Megatron. In fact, Shockwave is stronger and smarter than his supposed leader. The only reason he allows Megatron his position is because he wishes to focus on his own scientific research and avoid responsibility. His one true master is logic, and logic dictates that he must end the Autobot/Decepticon conflict as soon as possible. Purple car with a giant cannon on top
Lockdown Steven Blum Lockdown is a mercenary for hire that is neither Autobot nor Decepticon. His loyalty lies with whomever pays best, and Shockwave pays well indeed. With his hook-and-chain weapon and sadistic personality, Lockdown will hunt down every single Autobot on Cybertron to get his pay. He also speaks in an Australian accent. Green and black muscle car
Thundercracker Matthew Mercer One of Shockwave's aerial commanders, Thundercracker may be the softest Decepticon out there. He isn't as enthusiastic about blasting Autobots as others and needs constant reassurance from his partner, Skywarp. Fear of Shockwave and Megatron are enough to keep him in line, most of the time. Jet plane
Skywarp Eric Vale One of Shockwave's aerial commanders, Skywarp is much more ruthless than his partner. He's also much less mature, often using his teleportation abilities for petty pranks and stealing extra energon. He often has to reassure his partner, Thundercracker that they're on the right side. The aerial commanders are not Shockwave's favourite minions. Jet plane

Brawl Fred Tatasciore A member of the Combaticons, Brawl isn't exactly what you'd call subtle in combat. He's got so many guns on him that you'd think he's compensating for something. Brawl is reckless, headstrong, and loves smashing things. Onslaught often blames him for his plans going wrong. Tank
Blast Off Nolan North Blast Off is a very pompous Combaticon. He considers himself above his subordinates. Both literally and figuratively. He'll often be flying around Cybertron in his altmode rather than interacting with his fellow Decepticons. Space shuttle
Swindle Troy Baker A Decepticon who was a salesbot before the War began. Swindle sees the Autobot/Decepticon conflict as just another business opportunity. He will often be seen trying to do business with alien species using Shockwave's computer. When he's not selling Brawl's energon without his knowing, he's a Combaticon. Jeep
Blackout Jim Cummings The final Combaticon, Blackout doesn't talk much and prefers to let his actions do the talking. Blackout is one of the most sadistic Decepticons out there. He's also Shockwave's number one interrogator. Those helicopter blades aren't just for show. Military helicopter
Bruticus Fred Tatasciore The combined form of all five Combaticons. Bruticus is an enormous robot with titanic strength in exchange for intelligence.
