Nuggit is a fictional character from the Rock Lords series introduced in 1986. He is a heroic mechanical Rock Lord in Boulder's tribe.

Rock Lords

Nuggit is a heroic Rock Lord robot and member of Boulder's tribe. He can fly and has a Tri-Gun weapon which can hypnotize and paralyze targets.

In the French Bleu, l'Enfant de la Terre series he is small.

In the IDW Publishing Transformers stories Nuggit is a Cybertronian Non-Aligned Indigenous Life-form.

Reception

Fictional biography

Though he's a robot, Nuggit is worth his weight in gold! He's smaller than the other rock warriors but brave and bold beyond his size. Nuggit is very proud of his shiny finish. Nuggit's Tri-Gun does triple duty: the top barrel hypnotizes; the second barrel paralyzes; the third barrel revives the unlucky victim for questioning.

Animated series

Nuggit appeared in the 1986 film GoBots: Battle of the Rock Lords where he was voiced by Roddy McDowall.
