It's been 10 Earth years since the last battle against Unicron involving him and Megatron disappearing into deep space. The Autobots and Decepticons have been working together and have set up mining post for mining Energon in which to use the Energon to restore Cybertron. But a bad guy called Alpha Q (AKA Alpha Quintesson) has sent a Decepticon named Scorponok and a group of drones called the Terrorcons to raid the mining settlements and steal the Energon so they can restore and power up Unicron and revive Megatron with the help of the Decepticons. But a resurrected Megatron has other plans with Unicron since he has plans to control him. Scorponok and Alpha Q have different plans for Unicron and that is to use Unicron's power to re-create things like his home planet, and destroy Megatron once and for all. It's up to Optimus Prime, the Autobots, and the Omnicons along with a teenage boy named Kicker to stop the Decepticons from stealing all the Energon and taking over the universe.

Reference: Unicron has the same power as the Matrix as in Generation 1 Optimus can use the matrix to give life or bring something back to life.

Characters re-introduced are Optimus Prime, Megatron/Galvatron, Hot Shot, Cyclonus, Demolisher, Starscream, Tidal Wave, Unicron, Rad, Carlos, Alexis, Highwire, Sureshock, and Grindor and the introductions of Alpha Q, The Terrorcon units (Battle Ravage, Divebomb, Cruellock, and Insecticon Units), Scorponok, Primus, Ironhide, Inferno, Kicker, Rodimus, Dr. Jones (Kicker's Father), Miranda (Kicker's Mother), Sally (Kicker's Sister), Mischa (Kickers girl friend), Prowl, Landmine, Snowcat (Cyclonus' upgraded form), Shockblast, Mirage (Tidal Wave's upgraded form), Wing Saber, Cliffjumper, Bulkhead, Omega Supreme, Roadblock (Inferno's revived form), Sixshot (Shockblast Little Brother), Superion Maximus, Bruticus Maximus, Constructicon Maximus etc. as well as the Omnicons Skyblast, Strongarm, Signal Flare, Arcee, Downshift, and more. Certain Autobots can combine with another to form a more powerful version of an Autobot (example: Hot Shot + Inferno = Powerlink Hot Shot) via the Spark of Combination which is considered a comemeration for the warriors who fought greatly in battle. Continued from Transformers: Armada and Energon is later continued by Transformers Cybertron.

  • Horrible Addition To The Transformers

    2.0
    This has to be the worst addition to the transformers universe. It is pure unadulterated anime garbage. horrible animation, terrible voices and kindergarten writing. In my opinion this show should never even be considered a part of the Transformers Universe.
  • really gets what transformers is all about.

    A rebellious teen, Kicker, is caught in the middle of the war between the decepticons and Autobots while he attempts to save his home... earth. along side him is the clueless newbie; Ironhide, who knows nothing or near nothing about humans and their world. Together they make an extremely odd pair.



    All Transformer shows (that I've watched) have been placed on earth at some point of the show. I beleive that Transformers is actually not about the fighting... even though that IS cool... but actually about the relationship between humans and transformers. Otherwise, we could just be watching metal bots beat eachother up on a battle field. Which is perfectly fine (I'd watch it!) but then why have humans at all?



    It isn't absolutely perfect, it's got some minor flaws, such as Ironhide--why name the 'newbie' of the series that, when Ironhide is typically reserved for a bot who's even older than Optimus? Ironhide's and Kicker's interaction though is great; they both each each other important lessons and are truly 'partners', not useless like some humans are in some of the series. The show also does get into a bit of a rut at the very beginning; terrorcons attack, autobots defend, decepticons get energon. But later on in the series, the show dares to make bolder moves and explore the Post-war cybertron and the themes of teamwork and rebirth.



    And of course, the battles are AWESOME. The animation is superb... much better than the armada season (for humans, at least). the storyline does kind of get into a rut in the beginning, but it works its way out of it. The show focuses alot on Kicker and themes of the real life, which is why I favor it so much more than the new Cybertron. It's really got depth. I highly recommend this: it's an excellent show... It really does belong on my 'Favorites' list.

  • needs more respect

    8.0
    Ya' know a alot of shows need more respect energon is one of them. When ever a transformer show has sequel and trys to be deep fans whine and complain about it and i can't stand it when people hate something thats perfectly fine. It has goten so bad how can people be that close minded the character are old (g1) and new one like the Omicons. I am so saden by the fact that so many people who get mad and hate so easyly like this one sequel beast machines i like because i'm deep others don't just because it was diffrentmoreless
  • One of the best spin-offs!

    Man, this is a good spin off, and they did better with the animation. There are also less goofs than before, Armada had tones of them!!! It is also a good plot, another scavenger hunt, Energon. The finale is good, and it is great that Demolisher and Cyclones (Now Snowcat) can to their senses and became good guys at the end. They are two of my favorite! I hope that there will be more spin offs? Anyway, what the heck happened to Billy and the other guy? Are they any were? But i love everyone's new looks. I give 10/10moreless
  • Energon, the primary fuel of the Transformers has become high priority on Cybertron after the Unicron battles. With the help of their human allies, the Autobots have established energon mining operations.moreless

    I enjoyed energon during the first few episodes but I feel it could have better had the dubbing been handled after the whole show was complete. Theres times it is incomprehensible, sometimes a character will contradict himself in the same sentence, other times the lines are changed for the worse, Alpha Qs line about conquering the universe in Beware Kicker springs to mind, originally he said to restore what he lost.

    In all fairness though, the VAs for Alpha Q, kicker and human characters did a good job as did the guys doing the Decepticons.moreless
