Bumblebee with his energy blade

Bumblebee first runs into Optimus and Ratchet after they save him from some Decepticons. Ratchet tries to repair him but he's in too much of a hurry. He tells him that he is looking for an Autobot called Optimus. Optimus reveals himself, and Bumblebee tells him that Zeta Prime is dead. They continue to a small Autobot base where they receive a holographic message from Jetfire telling them they need the planetary cannons online. Optimus relays the message to Jetfire that Zeta Prime is dead. Bumblebee then accompanies Ratchet and Optimus on their journey to the Decagon, and helps defeat Starscream. Interestingly, he calls Starscream a yellow-plated coward despite the fact he is yellow. This is probably just a twist on the real-life old-fashioned statement "yellow-bellied coward". Bumblebee is also yellow in the belly.

Notes

Prime-bumblebee-1

Concept art of Bumblebee and his altmode in the Prime cartoon

  • Bumblebee's appearance in Prime is similar to his live-action films counterpart.
    • Bumblebee can only communicate through strange computer noises and that only the youngest member of the Autobot's Human companions can understand him, thus making him similar to a Mini-Con.
    • Despite being mute, due to a crushed voice box at Megatron's hand, Megatron is able to speak through Bumblebee while Megatron inhabits his mind.
  • His primary weapon in the cutscenes is the Plasma cannon, but in gameplay, he starts out with the Energon Battle Pistol. This trait is shared by Breakdown who is also depicted as using a Plasma Cannon but starts out with a Scatter blaster. This is probably because the plasma cannon is very hard to implement properly. His abilities are Shockwave and Dash.
  • Bumblebee isn't able to speak in Fall of Cybertron. The game takes place after his interrogation at Tyger Pax.
