Jetfire aka Skyfire in the beginning had a partnership with the Decepticons. This alliance led the way to his coalition with the troop of the Autobots. Jetfire chose the Autobots over the Decepticons because of his passion for technological as well as scientific breakthroughs. As a hidden scientist, he thought that he could use this knowledge to win over the Decepticons. This belief cast a detour in his audacity in the battle ground. On the other hand, he was one of the robots who was the most raring to go to battle.
Jetfire was created from the same mold as the VF-1S Valkyrie of the Marcoss and was equipped with the armor Super Valkyrie. In addition to this, Jetfire was also said to be created by Shockwave. Shockwave created Jetfire to be one of the new Decepticon troops, with the aid of the Creation Matrix.

In the Transformers series, Sideswipe was characterized as a brave but an impulsive warrior. His twin brother Sunstreaker was deemed to be in equal with him as to skills and combatant ability however, he is not at all ruthless like his twin.
The Marvel Transformers comics depicted Sideswipe as a loyal member of Optimus Prime’s league. He was one of the recorded in the list of injured during the Dinobot Hunt. Together with Huffer and Bluestreak, he was injured in an attempt to capture the powerful Grimlock. To contain a battle between Grimlock and another robot Sludge, Sideswipe was rather seriously injured and yet managed to give a warning to Optimus Prime and Prowl. After he avoided deactivation by the Underbase powered Starscream, he was never again shown in the series after the 50th issue of the US comic.

Arcee was noticed to be out from the Marvel Comics in the United States because they claimed that she would change the main rule of the Transformers universe, that Transformers are neither male nor female. Presence of Arcee as the robot with female as “her” gender would change this convention.
Arcee appeared in American Transformers where she served as the background Fortress Maximum’s troop. Prime’s Rib, the United Kingdom’s Marvel issue 234, is where Arcee also had an appearance.
Ratchet is the head medic of the Autobots in the Transformer comic and TV series. He is one of the original and longest continued characters from the Tranformers universes.
Characterized as a healer, Bob Budiansky named him after Nurse Ratched from the movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. His vehicle mode is an ambulance and has two robot modes, although he only changed into his second form in the toy line as he usually used the other one in the comic and TV series. He was quite a popular favorite as his courage and loyalty often manifests.
An elderly Autobot who is skillful in fighting and is a defender of Optimus Prime is known as Ironhide. Ironhide has many years of experience in battle thus making him a veteran in it. He is often seen as part of Autobot’s security and almost always seen combating Decepticons or protecting a specific object or place. He was also used as a commander, leading some Autobots against Decepticons.
He works with Autobots such as Jetfire and learns to rely on him despite Jetfire being originally from the group of Decepticons. He also works with Bumblebee in stopping a Rumble flood. However, Ironhide got tired of being almost always late figuring out Decepticons plans and left Autobots. But he was teleported back to Earth by Skywarp and thus has rejoined the Autobots.
The Autobot who transforms into a yellow, Volkswagen Beetle car is known as Bumblebee. He is the smallest Autobot volunteer to be part of the first group to be sent to Earth for investigation on the events of the awakening of both Autobot and Decepticons in 1984.
He is vastly fuel resourceful, can see far objects with precise acuity and is flexible in undersea environments. He looks up to Optimus Prime, the Autobots leader and tried his best to help him in any way that he can. He has a strong conviction to prove his contributions to the team and make the other Autobots recognized and respects his capability.
Optimus Prime is the leader of the good faction of Transformers known as Autobots. He is leading the battle against Autobot’s sworn enemy, the Decepticons, for the protection of life on Earth, Cybertron and all parts of the universe.
Optimus was once known as Orion Pax, a simple dock worker during the Golden Age of Cybertrons. He was destroyed by Megatron when the warehouse Optimus that he was protecting was assaulted by Megatron and the other Decepticons thus killing Optimus. He was later reconstructed to be Optimus Prime by the Alpha Trion who gave him the Autobot Matrix of Leadership which is placed on his chest and is a symbol carried by all Autobot leaders.
