Kranix is a character from the Transformers franchise.


Generation 1

Animated series

Kranix debuts in The Transformers: The Movie, where he is the only inhabitant of the planet Lithone to escape his planet being consumed by Unicron. He eventually makes his way to Quintessa only to be captured by the Quintessons, with whom he was either previously acquainted or becomes familiar with during his imprisonment. He later identifies the villainous beings and Unicron to Kup and Hot Rod after they too are imprisoned, but is then dragged away for his "trial" before the Quintessons. Though he pleads for his life as the last survivor of his home planet and is then defiant in the face of the Quintessons' "mockery of justice!", he is soon dropped into the pit of the Sharkticons and perishes.

IDW Publishing

Kranix made an appearance in Transformers: Deviations, where Optimus Prime's survival of his duel with Megatron in Autobot City results in Kranix being saved from the Quintessons by Optimus, Kup, and the Dinobots. After informing Optimus of his world's demise, Kranix advises that they flee as far away from Unicron as possible. Optimus kindly refuses, and offers Kranix the chance to join them on Cybertron to help them against Unicron and have the chance to preserve the culture of his planet.
