Aligned Continuity

Animated series

In Robots in Disguise, the Autobot High Council rules over Cybertron. They are known to have dispatched Jazz to Earth after Bumblebee's unauthorizied departure, and to have placed a bounty on him that Fracture and Drift both attempted to collect.


In Transformers: The Covenant of Primus and Transformers: Exodus, the High Council were the leaders of Cybertron following the expulsion of the Quintessons, and included such notables as Soundwave, Sentinel Prime, and Elita One. However, the council enforced the caste system that led to Cybertron's decline, and was still in power when the Decepticons under Megatron rose up and began the Great War. While the majority of the council, led by Halogen, voted to make Orion Pax a Prime and gave him the name of Optimus, some members-including Ratbat and Contrail-sided with the Decepticons.
