The Ancient Robot was a pre-Autobot drone.

That's a beard you'll have. In the future past.

The "Ancient Robot" was thought to be one of the Quintessons' "consumer goods" robots. He predated the robot rebellion that saw the aliens forced off of Cybertron.


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. Five Faces of Darkness, Part 4


  • 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.
