A heroic race of Transformers from the planet Cybertron, as seen in the 1980's children's television show. Their leader was Optimus Prime, who had more patience with his warriors doing stupid things than any general I've ever heard of. Some other Autobots of note were Bumblebee, a scout who transformed into a VW Beetle; and Grimlock, a less than intelligent Dinobot with aspirations to the Autobot leadership.

An Autobot is a member of the peaceable Transformers race known as Autobots. Usually, Autobots could transform into cars or other land vehicles. This wasn't a hard and fast rule; many Autobots turned into things besides cars, such as Skyfire, who turned into a jet plane; Sky Lynx, who transformed into a space shuttle and a lynx; and Perceptor who turned into a microscope.

Several sub-groups of Autobots existed, such as the Dinobots, the Aerialbots, the Protectobots, and the Technobots.

Famous Autobots include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Rodimus Prime, and Grimlock.
