- Kiss Players are humans from, surprisingly enough, the Kiss Players portion of the Generation One continuity family.
A Kiss Player is one of a few human females that, through a quirk of fate, gained the ability to fuse with giant robots and fight tentacle monsters. They first began to appear in Earth's population shortly after the defeated body of Galvatron streaked through the planet's atmosphere and devastated the city of Tokyo. Their ability is triggered via the titular kiss, and allows them to enter the bodies of robots engineered with ParasiTech technology. The aftermath of this process leaves them nude and quite soaked. As such, it may not be the most practical superpower available, even with the advantage of being able to go toe to toe with Cybertronians.
Kiss Players were highly sought after by EDC scientist Hitoshizuku Amaō, to man her organization's newly founded Autrooper squadrons. It was all a ruse on her part though, as she had discovered the girls' powers were derived from the diffusion of Galvatron's cells from the Tokyo event horizon. This allowed their connection to the ParasiTech derived Autroopers, as they had been reverse-engineered from Galvatron's destroyed body. The distraught scientist hoped to resurrect her daughter who had been killed in the explosion, but ultimately only managed to reconstitute the Decepticon leader. Go figure.
