|“||Our power is greater than theirs, because it comes from a place of goodness, not greed.||„|
|~ Optimus Prime, Battle Protocol|
Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots, in the war against the Predacons, and the main protagonist of Robots in Disguise (2001).
He is voiced by Neil Kaplan in the Saban English dub (who also voices Hawkmon from the Saban English dub of Digimon Adventure 02) and Satoshi Hashimoto in the Japanese version, Car Robots.
Optimus Prime and Ultra Magnus were created by Alpha Trion during the Golden Age. The two of them were raised together and saw each other as brothers. After the Cybertron Civil Wars, the Matrix chose Optimus Prime to command the Autobots in stopping the Predacon leader Megatron from ravaging the universe in his quest for energy. Ultra Magnus bitterly left Cybertron that same day.
