Cody Burns is the youngest member of the Burns family. Despite his age, he acts as the team's communications officer. He also acts to help the bots become accustomed to life on Earth and guide them. He acts as a mediator between them and his older siblings. Occasionally, he helps out in the field (such as riding in Blades with Dani). In the episode "Bumblebee to the Rescue," he meets Bumblebee and like the rest of his family is unable to understand the Autobot's speech. However, over the course of the episode, Cody learns how to understand him, making him the only human character able to do so (much like Rafael Esquivel does in Transformers: Prime).
