This article is about the Autobot resistance group led by Elita One. For information on female Transformers in general, see Female Transformer.
The Female Autobots is a pretty self-explanatory group in the Generation One continuity family.

Amazon Autobots on Beta Moon?

Female Autobots is a term used to refer to a team of female Transformers that first appeared as an Autobot resistance group stationed on Cybertron. Later continuities sometimes portrayed the team differently, making the name not appropriate for every continuity, though useful for lack of an alternative designation.

Female Autobots? I thought they were extinct.

Members

The team as it originally appeared consisted of six members. Later stories generally omitted the two unnamed ones and sometimes placed Arcee among the group's ranks.

Fiction

The Transformers cartoon

The Female Autobots were believed destroyed by a missile strike during the Ark's launch 4 million years ago.

By 1985, they formed a resistance group on Cybertron, operating in secret. Shockwave discovered their continued existence (thanks to Moonracer) and tracked them back to their underground headquarters. A subsequent attempt to capture Elita One resulted in a reunion with the Autobots stationed on Earth.

The Female Autobots relocated to a new secret headquarters provided by Alpha Trion and chose to remain on Cybertron to continue the fight there. The Search for Alpha Trion

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

This character article is a stub and is missing information on their fictional appearances. You can help Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki by expanding it.


Dreamwave Comics continuity

The "Female Autobots" were an elite squad of warriors under the command of the Quintessons. Generation One issue 11

Note: Dreamwave filed for bankruptcy and stopped producing Transformers books right as the female Autobots arc was beginning.

Unnamed members

Fa scale

We aren't drawn very well.

In addition to the better-known four Female Autobots, the team as it originally appeared had two more members. Both have no name, got no lines and apart from their looks, there isn't much known about them. Within the cartoon, they seemed to fulfill a more support/defensive role for the team, though they fight when it is required of them. They can often be seen standing or working together, so one could conclude they're friends.

Note: While difficult to judge the relative size of these characters (since they are often foreshortened in the background,) the Green and Orange Female Autobots appear the smallest in the group. Or, the art is bad. Take your pick.

Greenlight

Femaleautobot green

Green Elf needs energon, badly!

She tried to board the Ark with Elita One and the others, but failed and was thought destroyed until four million years later.

She can be seen manning a series of monitors in the team's original headquarters when Chromia and co. returned from their mission. When their base had been destroyed, she and her orange colleague freed Moonracer from the debris. Sticking with the rest of the team, she did her share in the fight against the Decepticons and can again later be seen manning a series of monitors in the team's new base.


Lancer

Femaleautobot orange

She's purple and orange, like Huffer. And she doesn't do much, like Huffer. She's the only member of Elita One's squad that is not present in the flashback of the Ark's launch and generally has the least screentime of all Female Autobots (mostly with her back turned to the camera when she's not in the background). She also has the least consistent design of all of them.

The orange one can be seen looking at a clipboard in the team's original headquarters when Chromia and co. returned from their mission. When their base had been destroyed, she and her green colleague freed Moonracer from the debris. Along with the rest of the team, she did her share in the fight against the Decepticons and can later be seen manning a series of monitors in the team's new base, in the background.

Note: The orange Female Autobot appears on the Club Udon special edition cover to G.I. Joe vs. the Transformers: The Art of War volume 3 #2, but she is colored like the green female. Presumably one (or both) of them also exist in the Joe/Transformer continuity.

Notes

  • The Female Autobots were the first female Transformers to appear in any continuity.
  • Interestingly, all of the 'boyfriends' of the Female Autobots seen in the episode are coloured red. So in other words if a guy Autobot wants a date, he might just have to paint himself red.
  • Greenlight and Lancer's names were revealed in the Timelines story "Flames of Yesterday".
