This is a list of planets appearing in the fictional Transformers storyline.

Antilla

Ancient ringed planet which was the site of an early Autobot colonization effort. This colony was wiped out by the deadly plague known as Cosmic Rust.

Athenia

The first Galactic Olympics take place here in 2005. In 2011, it became another base of operations for the Autobots.

Chaar

Chaar (in Japan, Jarr) appeared in The Transformers television series, debuting in The Five Faces of Darkness (Part 1) in season three. It is a small, burned-out husk of a planet located in distant space, easily mistaken for a smudge on a map. It apparently supported a civilization at one point, as abandoned structures are seen on the surface. The surface is desolate and lacks vegetation, but some native lifeforms exist, including an enormous spider.

Following Unicron’s attack on Cybertron in 2005, the Autobots reclaimed Cybertron, and the surviving Decepticons, without their leader, Galvatron, were forced to withdraw to Chaar, where they struggled to eke out an existence, relying on the meager amounts of Energon that could be acquired from other worlds. Eventually, Cyclonus set out to find Galvatron but, in his absence, the Quintessons supplied the Decepticons with Energon in return for their assistance in launching an attack against the Autobots. With the return of Galvatron, the alliance was restructured, but the ensuing attack on Cybertron ended in failure, resulting in the Decepticons again returning to Chaar, which served as their base of operations for the remainder of the series.

After Earth and Cybertron, Chaar appeared in more episodes of the original television series than any other planet. Chaar was also mentioned in Transformers: Cybertron, but as an asteroid belt, not a planet. In Transformers Animated, Strika leads "Team Chaar" a team consisting of Spittor, Cyclonus, Oil Slick, and Blackout.

Cheynne

An arid desert world whose culture is similar to the Wild West of the late 19th century United States.

Cybertron

Main article: Cybertron

Cybertron is a fictional planet, the homeworld of the Transformers in the various fictional incarnations of the metaseries and toyline by Hasbro.[1] In the Japanese series, the planet is referred to as "Cybertron" (first shown on Japanese Galaxy Force packaging, despite the fact that "Cybertron" is the Japanese name for "Autobot") pronounced as セイバートロン Seibātoron.[2] Cybertron is populated by mechanical life forms of variable size who can transform into all kinds of machinery. These are called Cybertronians, or Transformers.[3]

Combatron

Colony world of Cybertron once lead by King Atlas, torn apart by war.

Dread

Home of the monster Chaos, this mining planet was featured in the episode Chaos.

Earth

A version of the real-world planet Earth where humans have made contact with Transformers. The planet Earth, third from the Sun in the Solar System in the Milky Way galaxy, is a world populated by a wide variety of native organic lifeforms, most notably, humans. Versions of this planet are known to exist in many dimensions within the multiverse, and it frequently becomes involved in the conflicts of the Transformers. Perhaps too frequently. Whenever something (or someone) leaves, escapes, or is otherwise ejected from Cybertron, there's a disproportionate chance it will eventually wind up on Earth. In some universes, Earth becomes the post-apocalyptic planet Gaea. While in others, Earth is the planet that formed around Unicron.

Eurythma

A planet whose culture is based solely on music. Among their achievements is a three-part harmony of incredible destructive power.

Femax

A planet in the Marvel Comics series where feminism has been taken to the extreme: women rule all aspects of the planet and men are only used for labour. Femax first appeared in issue #53 in the U.S. series[4] and issue #218 in the U.K. series.[4] The Autobots Cloudburst and Landmine visited Femax during their encounter with the Mecannibals.

Gaea

Gaea (ガイア Gaia), or Gaia, is post-apocalyptic Earth in the distant future, tens of thousands of years away. Thanks to the millennia without humanity, most of mankind's structures have been completely destroyed and most of the planet has been grown-over with dense jungle.

Gigantion

Gigantion, or Giant Planet, is a fictional planet home to giant Transformers in the animated television program, Transformers: Cybertron; it is referred to as Gigalonia in Transformers: Galaxy Force, the Japanese version of the show. Much like how Velocitron is referred to as both "Velocitron" and "Speed Planet", Gigantion has a similar dual name. Its actual name was revealed in the episode "Balance".

Gigantion is home to one of the four Cyber Planet Keys, and is one of the four ancient Transformer colonies. Once part of a star system within the Milky Way galaxy, the planet fell into a spatial rift and was transported to a distant universe. The only Transformers to escape this fate were a quartet of Mini-Cons - Jolt, Six-Speed, Reverb, and Safeguard. Vector Prime eventually discovered and saved them, and they became the Mini-Con Recon Team. Each Transformer on Giant Planet has a Minicon partner. The larger Transformers all become construction vehicles, with the Mini-Cons integrated into both modes. Gigantion's de facto leader is Metroplex. The Transformers from this world have accents that sound Scottish or Irish.

The Giant Transformers have a habit of building giant cities and abandoning them, with older cities (the oldest of which are buried deep within the planet's crust) forbidden by planetary law by erasing their data so no one could come back. The planet was once the target of an attack from the mysterious Planet X, its inhabitants having eradicated most every other civilization in their universe and seeking to subjugate Gigantion's populace as their next conquest. Gigantion's people, however, retaliated, with its inhabitants modifying themselves including their planet with help from the Cyber Planet Key into super-sized forms to combat the invasion.

This eventually led Planet X's inhabitants to use their planet-busting weapon in a last-ditch effort to win the war, but the weapon overloaded and destroyed Planet X. Horrified and saddened by their part in the extinction of an entire race, Gigantion's inhabitants remodeled themselves into construction vehicles and took up their custom of building and then abandoning cities, perhaps as a form of self-punishment, focusing their energies solely on creation, not destruction. The Giant Transformers built cities underground and used holographic images of the sky on the top to make things nice. They started at the very center where they left the greenery. They have many mottoes like "Safety First" and "Always look forward, never back". Gigantion is mentioned in the first chapter of Transformers: Exodus.

Goo

Goo is the name of many garbage planets in the original Transformers television series, debuting in the season 3 miniseries The Five Faces of Darkness. Goo is filled with garbage and belongs to the Junkions. After the Quintessons blew up Quintessa in an attempt to destroy the Autobots, the Autobots were set adrift in space until they landed on Goo. The Autobots were attacked by a giant garbage truck that killed Springer before Rodimus Prime could disable it. Later the Quintessons found out that the Autobots were alive on Goo. They made an alliance with the Decepticons, who were without their leader, Galvatron, and attacked the Autobots on Goo. When Galvatron returned, he was furious that the Decepticons had abandoned him. He attacked the Decepticons and Quintessons with an army of Sweeps, before being placated by Quintesson manipulation. As the Autobots fled, Galvatron destroyed the planet of Goo. Later, the Junkions were able to repair Springer. Another Goo planet was featured in the episode "Chaos".


Jungle

In the previous series, Transformers: Energon, Jungle Planet was the name of a world created by Alpha Q using the power of his Energon sun. It was a lush, jungle-like paradise. Jungle Planet (Also called the Beast Planet on occasion) is a fictional planet home to bestial Transformers in the animated television program, Transformers: Cybertron; it is referred to as Animatros in the Japanese version of the series, Transformers: Galaxy Force.

The ship that transported the Cyber Planet Key to this world was called Hyperborea. Home of one of four Cyber Planet Keys (which exists in the form of a statue called the Beast Totem) and ancient Transformer colonies sent to reacquire them. A lush, green planet (albeit one beset by dangerous volcanic and seismic activity, as well as intense lightning storms and monstrous plants) the Jungle Planet Transformers took animal alternate modes, but for a time, were leaderless, leaving their world torn by violence and poverty. Many were taken under the tulage under Zen-master Backstop in the way of non-violence and self-defense.

Eventually, Scourge, a student of Backstop, grew impatient with his people's suffering, and forced a rebellion against those taking advantage of the chaos, strong-arming his way into leadership position in a series of battles to determine who would be strong enough to become leader. Corrupted by his newfound power and position, Scourge forced a "peace through tyranny" campaign, bringing his people the peace and prosperity he promised them, but only through a dictatorship ruled by the credo of 'might makes right'.

However, Scourge couldn't totally rid himself of his old master's teachings, and he enforced a strict series of laws regulating disputes being settled only through formal duels of strength, with sabotage and especially unjustified death of a defeated foe as the planet's highest offense. Overhaul was sent to acquire the Planet Key here, and was transformed into Leobreaker as a result. Eventually, he and the other inhabitants of the planet convinced Optimus Prime to rethink his credo of non-interaction with local customs in order to acquire the Key.

The Hyperborea ship would later carry the people of Jungle Planet to safety (along with another ship, Ogygia), after the planet was consumed by the Black Hole. However, when the Black Hole was destroyed, the planet was restored. When the Autobots attempted to use a gigantic rocket to move the Jungle Planet back into its orbit, Galvatron attacked damaged the rocket. The Jungle Planet threatened to crash into Cybertron. The combined strength of Scourge, the Autobots, the former Decepticons (Dark Crumplezone, Ransack, Thunderblast and Thundercracker), and their allies from the various planets were able to combine their strength and move the rocket back into place.

Junk

The Planet of Junk is the home planet of the Junkions, a group of Transformers who transform into motorcycles. The planet and the Junkions first appeared in The Transformers: The Movie. It is not really a planet in the normal sense of the word, but rather, a landfill in space that has accumulated enough mass to be held together by gravity. Depending on the storyline, it has been depicted as either a traditional spherical planet or as an elongated slab. In the original movie art and storyboards, the Planet of Junk was intended to be a spherical planet, with several rounded slabs seeming to rise off of its surface. In the end, only the "northernmost" rounded section of the planetoid was retained on film. In the third volume of the Devil's due comics the android Serpentor downloaded information on the history of Cybertron from Soundwave. Mentioned among that information was the Quintessons, Alpha Trion, Megatron and Soundwave, the planet of Junk, a warrior named Optimus Primal and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. In Transformers: Exiles, the Autobots aboard the Ark come upon the planet Junkion where they meet Wreck-Gar and the other Junkions.

Klo

Klo appeared in the Marvel Comics Transformers comic book series, and is notable for being the location of the final battle of both the U.S. and U.K. versions of the series. Klo was introduced in issue #80 in the U.S. version,[4] and #331 in the U.K. version.[4] Klo is a beautiful, peaceful planet, rich in natural resources and inhabited by benign, harmless creatures called Klozians. The planet was invaded by Decepticons under Bludgeon's leadership, after the Transformers had won the war against Unicron. Following Unicron's death, Cybertron seemed to be in danger of being destroyed, so the Decepticons fled the planet in search of new worlds to conquer. They selected Klo, where they started mercilessly slaughtering the native Klozians. The Autobots tracked the Decepticons to Klo and attempted to rescue the Klozians, but weak leadership from Grimlock led to heavy casualties by the Autobots and their forces were nearly wiped out. Finally, a newly resurrected Optimus Prime and the Last Autobot arrived on Klo, and while Optimus Prime fought against Bludgeon, the Last Autobot resurrected the dead Autobots. Facing invincible opposition, Bludgeon and his Decepticons retreated back into space and Optimus Prime and his Autobots stayed to help the Klozians rebuild their planet.

Lithone

Lithone was a planet populated by intelligent Transformer-like machine life. It was destroyed by Unicron in the Earth year 2005. The last known survivor of the planet, Kranix, was sentenced to death and executed by the Quintessons after being found "innocent" of an unspecified crime. (It is rumored that the Quintessons often judge lifeforms with the crime of "stealing" Cybertron from them 12 million years prior, as seen in the Five Faces of Darkness miniseries, but Kranix was from Lithone, so the "jury reach a verdict" of innocent—yet Kup and Hot Rod, of Cybertron, were found innocent in the film as well). In the script and in the Marvel Comics The Transformers: The Movie adaptation, the Lithonians could transform into spaceships. Lithone has also been referenced as "Glithos" or "Glinthos" due to the unclear articulation of its last surviving native, Kranix, before his execution.

Lanarq

Robotic planet, waged a centuries long war with Zitaxis.

Monacus

Gambling planet made famous in the episode The Gambler.

Master

Appeared in the Japanese continuity as the home planet of the Headmasters and Targetmasters.

Nebulos

Nebulos, sometimes known as Nebulon, is a planet in the fictional Transformers universes. Nebulos is a somewhat Earth-like planet far away from both Earth and Cybertron, and is the home to a humanoid race known as the Nebulans. The planet and its inhabitants were first introduced as the back story for Hasbro's new Headmaster and Targetmaster toys, later expanded by the Powermaster toys. These toys are robots that transform into vehicles or animals, and include Nebulan sidekicks that transform into the robot's head, into a weapon, or into the vehicle's engine. The toys themselves never expanded on Nebulon or its inhabitants, but both the TV series (in its fourth and final season) and the Marvel Comics comic book did, with drastically different, mutually inconsistent versions. In the TV series, the Nebulons were shown to be green-skinned. The planet Nebulos does not exist in the Japanese continuation of the franchise. Thus, with no Nebulos and no Nebulons, a different origin was given for the Headmaster and Targetmaster Transformers.

In the Marvel comic book, Fortress Maximus had grown weary of the civil war on Cybertron, and led a group of Autobots in search of a new planet where they could live in peace. They settled on Nebulos, but the Decepticons followed them. The comic book version of Nebulos is an idyllic, peaceful world where war has long since been discontinued and all weapons have been locked away. It is governed by a council of peers. The arrival of the Transformers scared the Nebulans, and they were forced to hold an emergency council meeting to deal with these strange new creatures. The Autobots wanted to live in peace with the Nebulans, but the Decepticons wanted to conquer them and kill the Autobots, so the Autobot-Decepticon civil war restarted on Nebulon. Both sides allied themselves with Nebulans, the Autobots generally with common people who had become familiar with them and did not see them as a threat, and the Decepticons generally with criminals or corrupt politicians. The Nebulans, fearing the Transformers' civil war would plunge their own world back into war, finally banished the Transformers and their Nebulan sidekicks back into space, where they finally arrived on Earth.

In the TV series, the Transformers arrived on Nebulos in the three-part episode The Rebirth, which were the only episodes of the fourth season, and the last episode ever produced in the USA. The Autobots' spaceship was plunged to Nebulos accidentally by a gigantic power surge from the Plasma Energy Chamber, and the Decepticons followed them. The TV show version of Nebulos is a hostile, dying world, where a group of eleven rulers known as "The Hive" controls the entire world from an underground city, abusing their power for their personal pleasure and oppressing the workers with various mechanical devices controlled by their minds. Upon seeing the Autobots, the Nebulon workers mistook them for machines controlled by The Hive, and imprisoned them, later to destroy them. However, an attack by the Decepticons convinced the workers that the Autobots were good guys, and so they were released and allied themselves with the workers. The Decepticons did the same with the members of The Hive (after being co-erced).

In the Ladybird books continuity, the Nebulans were a race of small transforming robots. The Nebulans have appeared once more in IDW Publishing's new continuity, in The Transformers: Stormbringer. Their planet was attacked by Thunderwing as part of an unholy pact to rejuvenate Cybertron. Despite the best efforts of the local Decepticon cell (led by Dreadwind and Darkwing) much of the planet was devastated. It also appeared chronologically earlier in the Spotlight issue on Ultra Magnus, where Scorponok was already seen to be developing the Headmaster process. Nebulos was also mentioned by Swindle in the Transformers Animated episode, Decepticon Air.

Paradron

A peaceful, Energon-rich planet, accessible only through a vortex. Several Autobots fled there when the war against the Decepticons began.

Pequod

An oceanic planet that is home to large whale-like creatures called the Klud.

Planet X

Planet X was first seen in a recording found by the human Lori and the Velocitronian leader, Override, after the latter's battle with Scourge on Giant Planet. It was shown to be a highly advanced world like Cybertron, purple in color, with two golden rings around it forming an X pattern. Later, it would be revealed that Planet X was the dominant force in the alternate universe that Giant Planet had been drawn into. It was capable of non-orbital space travel and annihilating less advanced civilizations it came across. This, however, caused life in its universe to 'die' and, in an attempt to rectify the problem, its denizens sought out another life-rich planet to subjugate. The planet they found, Giant Planet, did not take kindly to being invaded, and its inhabitants reformatted themselves into larger forms with help of the Cyber Planet Key in order to combat the threat of the off-worlders. Left with few options and little hope of victory, the inhabitants of Planet X powered up their ultimate weapon: a Death Star-like planetary cannon, in order to wipe out the transformers on Giant Planet. Unfortunately, the cannon was too powerful for them to control and the result destroyed their world. The survivors, including Soundwave and Sideways, were scattered all across their universe, and were eventually thrown into the Transformers' proper universe. Believing Giant Planet to be at fault for their home planet's destruction, the various Transformers plotted revenge against them. In addition, the Giant Planet Transformers also felt themselves at least partially responsible for Planet X's annihillation. This created their custom of building cities and then abandoning them, which became a perpetual, planet-wide act of penance. Eventually, Sideways and Soundwave managed to return to Giant Planet, and sought the Cyber Planet Keys in order to exact their revenge.

Pz-zazz

A highly technological planet, Pz-zazz was hopelessly corrupted by crime until an ancient bird icon was returned to its place and purified the planet.

Quintessa

Home planet of the infamous Quintessons as seen in Transformers: The Movie. Unlike most other planets, Quintessa was shown having a more spiral-like shape than a simple sphere. The Quintessons eventually destroyed their own home planet.

Torkulon

A planet whose main source of commerce is psychotherapy. Galvatron was brought there for treatment in the episode "Webworld".

Unicron

Main article: Unicron

Unicron is a fictional character from the Transformers universe and toyline. Created by Floro Dery, he was introduced in the 1986 animated film The Transformers: The Movie.[5] and reprised that role in Atari's 2003 Transformers video game. Unicron is a prodigiously large robot whose scale reaches planetary proportions, and he is also able to transform into a mechanical planet. Unicron's origin has expanded over the years from simply being a large robot to being a God of chaos who devours realities. He often employs the help of Decepticons in his work, and in some stories is considered part of the origin of the Decepticon forces.

Velocitron

Velocitron (known as Speedia in Galaxy Force and Speed Planet in promotional materials) is a fictional planet featured in Transformers: Cybertron and is the location of one of four ancient Transformer colonies that lost contact with the home world of Cybertron long ago, along with Earth, Jungle Planet, and Gigantion. Each of these colonies possess a Cyber Planet Key, containing a fragment of the power of Primus. The name Velocitron is used infrequently. The planet is more commonly referred to as "the Speed Planet" or simply "Speed Planet." The planet's full, formal name appears to be "Velocitron, the Speed Planet." [6]

A variable desert planet, it was terraformed into a global race track, with the pursuit of perfect speed and performance the primary motivating force in its society and culture. Disputes are settled in formal races, with the winner claiming victory over the dispute, as well. Automated repair machines maintain the race courses, which include tracks featuring various environments and obstacles as well as simpler straightforward courses. Characteristics of Velocitron's inhabitants include transluscent wheels of unknown material, and double-barrelled long-range weaponry.

The planet's leader is Override, as she is the fastest of all Velocitronian Transformers, with no equal planetside. She holds semi-annual planetwide races to determine the next leader, with the planet's Cyber Planet Key (which exists in the form of a trophy called the Planet Cup) awarded to the winner. The location of Velocitron was first re-discovered by Megatron using the map he had stolen from Vector Prime. Vector Prime himself later located the planet as well, by studying a copy of the Atlantis Pattern found at a museum in Mexico.

Hot Shot felt right at home on the planet, and participated in the planetwide race alongside a few of his Autobot comrades, despite reservations by Optimus Prime. Despite quarreling with his companion, Red Alert, Hot Shot managed to overcome the challenges of Speed Planet and won the great race. In addition to gaining Override's friendship, the Autobots also learned a valuable lesson about interacting with the inhabitants of the different planets.[7] The starship that carried the Cyber Planet Key to this world was named Ogygia.

In the final episode of Transformers: Cybertron the "Speedia 500" race is held to determine the leader of Velocitron, which Hot Shot wins. Dirt Boss comes in second, Ransack third, Dark Crumplezone fourth, Brakedown fifth and Clocker sixth. Override didn't even compete, as she joins the new Space Bridge project led by Optimus Prime. The name of the race is a reference to the Japanese name of the planet, which is Speedia. Velocitron is one of the planets mentioned in the first chapter of Transformers: Exodus in which many Cybertronians are populated. Optimus Prime and the other Autobots aboard the Ark come to Velocitron where they meet Blurr and Override.

Vs'Qs

Actually a moon, not a planet. Vs'Qs is a barren, desolate place, devoid of any natural life. Vs'Qs was the place where the body of Optimus Prime happened to land on, having been blasted off into space randomly after his death. The Matrix of Leadership contained within the body was found during the Matrix Quest.

Xetaxxis

Robotic planet, waged a centuries long war with Lanark.

Zamojin

Planet sealed by a quadrant lock by the Quintessons, advanced Samari culure with telepathic power generated by starlight.

Zarak

Appeared in the Japanese continuity. It is located within a dark nebula and is where Scorponok used a slave labor force of Beastformers to construct his giant transtector, MegaZarak.
