- The Ancient Robot was a pre-Autobot drone.
The Transformers cartoon
The Ancient Robot is the earliest documented bearer of the Matrix of Leadership. A prototype Cybertronian, he predated even Prima himself. However, Primon never truly gained sapience, even while bearing the Matrix itself. As such, Primon remained but a service drone to Primus, and was presumed destroyed during the Quintesson occupation of Cybertron.
He was succeeded as Matrix-bearer by the Powerful Robot.
- This robot was never named in fiction. The designation "Ancient Robot" come from the dialogue script of "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 4".
- The symbol stamped on the Ancient Robot's forehead is a "prototype" version of the Autobot insignia. Although this is the only place it appears in-fiction, the symbol was later released as a sticker with Overcharge.
