After Optimus was brought back to life, Jessica went with him, Sky Lynx, Kup, Blurr, Goldbug & Blaster to Charr to find Galvatron and get the metal she, her father and Swafford were working on so that Optimus can be covered with it and retrieve the Matrix of Leadership from within Rodimus.

Shawn Berger Megatron Master Plan (Part 1) Megatron Master Plan (Part 2), only appearance Ed Gilbert

Prince Jumal, also known as Hassan, is the ruler of an unspecified Middle Eastern nation on Earth. In his spare time, he likes tinkering with old cars.
El Presidente B.O.T B.O.T, only appearance None
El Presidente, one assumes, either is or was the president of a nation-state on the planet Earth. The latter seems more likely, given that as of the mid-1980s he was known to be operating out of a ship as an international arms dealer. He presumably shops for clothes with Abdul Fakkadi.
Abdul Fakkadi Five Faces of Darkness (Part 1) Thief in the Night, only appearance Philip L. Clarke
Abdul Fakkadi (also spelled Faghadi) is the self-professed Supreme Military Commander, President-for-Life, and King of Kings of the Socialist Democratic Federated Republic of Carbombya. One gets the feeling that if you were to inform him that, by definition, a republic cannot have a king (much less a "King of Kings"), his likely response would be to stare blankly for a long moment, and then order your immediate beheading. None too bright and none too stable, Fakkadi is concerned primarily with the accumulation of wealth and keeping "fanatics" and "imperialists" away from his homeland's shores. He is not averse to making deals with Decepticons to help further these goals.
Mr. Robbins B.O.T B.O.T Dan Gilvezan
Mr. Robbins is a science teacher at Benjamin Franklin Pierce High School. Unfortunately, he has Roland and Martin as students, which makes his classes significantly more dangerous than average.
Martin and Roland B.O.T B.O.T Townsend Coleman(Martin) and Micheal Sheehan(Roland)
Martin and Roland are two teenagers who are destined to give humanity a bad name... well, a worse name, anyway.
Elise Presser B.O.T B.O.T, only appearance Samantha Newark
Elise Presser is one of a trio of school students at Benjamin Franklin Pierce High School who built B.O.T. as part of a science project. Elise is a nerd and more concerned about obeying rules than her classmates. Given they accidentally built a destructive robot powered by Brawl's personality component, she'll probably continue to err on the side of caution.
Professor Terranova Trans-Europe Express Trans-Europe Express, only appearance Jack Angel
Professor Terranova is a professional archeologist. He has a green suit.
Abdul Ben Faisal Trans-Europe Express Trans-Europe Express, only appearance Roger C. Carmel
Abdul Ben Faisal is the greatest sage in all of Istanbul! The only way to find him is to threaten random Turks with a fusion cannon, or by going to his house at 1024 Dreymon Street, behind the herb vendor shop.
Jess The Insecticon Syndrome The Insecticon Syndrome, only appearance None
Jeff is a park ranger in a United States forest. He has a workmate named Mike.

Joan Microbots Microbots, only appearance Morgan Lofting
Joan is a field archeologist. She likes to make $10 bets with a male colleague on who'll uncover something first at a dig site. She also has blue hair. Perhaps her last name is Bouvier?
Professor Haley Blaster Blues Blaster Blues, only appearance John Stephenson
Professor Haley is an astronomer. Like all scientists, he wears a white lab coat. He created the Voltronic Galaxer in an attempt to contact alien life forms, having forgotten that some already dwelt on Earth. Presumably he also founded the Haley Observatory.
Astoria Carlton-Ritz The Girl Who Loved Powerglide The Girl Who Loved Powerglide, only appearance Linda Gary
After the death of her father, Astoria Carlton-Ritz inherited his vast fortune as well as his company, Hybrid Technologies. Spoiled rotten, Astoria is mostly a figurehead with little control over the company's goings-on. Instead, she spends most of her time throwing herself lavish parties and wondering why nobody wants to be her friend. She has the bizarre ability to jinx any mechanical device just by coming into contact with it, which is just one more reason why she keeps away from her father's company and its equipment. Her father gave her a necklace with a top secret formula and requested she never take the necklace off. Astoria also has a thing for Powerglide, she probably spends her time with the Hilton sisters.
Professor Greene Desertion of the Dinobots (Part 1) Desertion of the Dinobots (Part 1), only appearance Peter Renaday
Professor Greene is a scientist who just wants to help the Autobots defend Earth against the Decepticons. To this end, he invented the Ultra Plane, an unmanned drone aircraft which can be operated remotely.
Ali Aerial Assault Aerial Assault, only appearance Ed Gilbert
Ali is an underhanded backstabber who became ruler of a small Middle Eastern country by deposing its rightful ruler, Prince Jumal. Of course, one country is not enough for him—he has set his sights on total world domination, for which he needs the help of the Decepticons. As a bonus, he gets to drive Swindle around.

Raoul is a break-dancing street punk carjacker with a bandana, a mullet-ponytail, a rhinestone-studded leather jacket and a heart of gold.
Director Hoist Goes Hollywood Hoist Goes Hollywood Alan Oppenheimer
The Director knows exactly what makes a good film when he sees it. It might be some great stunt work, awesome explosions, or giant transforming robots, he'll film it and put it in his film (and change the script to make it fit)! Just don't bug him with the details. Kept on calling Hoist, Moist.

Harold Edsel Hoist Goes Hollywood Hoist Goes Hollywood Ed Gilbert
Harold had the bad luck of "starring" in a science fiction film along with Karen Fishook whose director became obsessed with using Hoist and several of the Autobots as his main characters (likely saving loads on his FX budget). For reasons that are unclear, he bears some resemblance to the Star Warrior Han Solo and Harrison Ford.
Poplock Auto-Bop Auto-Bop Frank Welker
Poplock is a member of the Bop Crew. In case his costume isn't 80s enough to get into nightclubs, under his clothing he wears an additional shirt which is even more lurid. Like Raoul, he has a predilection for making pop culture references.
Rocksteady Auto-Bop Auto-Bop T. K. Carter
Rocksteady is a member of the Bop Crew. He's got some sharp moves. How sharp? He keeps his hat on while he break-dances, and it never falls off! He seems to be the most pragmatic of the trio, but is easily distracted by the opportunity to show off his dance moves.

Furg was utilized by Starscream to frighten off and/or dispose of people who interfered with the flow of customers into the Dancitron nightclub, which apparently included going after innocent breakdancers, he led a gang of roughly fifteen punks and one mind-controlled businessman in performing his strongarm sidewalk defense.

While you're being charmed, he'll be making arrangements to steal the contents of your bank account. He has his own ship, the Lazy Sue (which he probably won in a game of space poker), and hails from Epsilon Ariadne, EDC[disambiguation needed ] officer Marissa Faireborn has a thing for him.
Doctor Harding Attack of the Autobots Attack of the Autobots Morgan Lofting
Doctor Harding designed a solar satellite equipped to capture solar radiation while in orbit and somehow channel that energy back to earth. She has lofty goals for that energy to be used by the entire world, either that or she's really pretentious.
