    Autobot Rescue Force Sigma-17/Rescue Bots 


Function: Rescue Force Commander

"Rescue Bots, roll to the rescue!"

Voiced by: Steve Blum

A Rescue-Bot that transforms into a fire engine and is partnered with Kade Burns (he is also the leader of the Rescue Bots). He dislikes the fact the Rescue Bots have to pretend they are mindless robots. He has a temper at times, but understands the need to place saving lives above all else.


Function: Rescue Force Member

"Two peanuts walked down the road. One had high sodium content."

Voiced by: DC Douglas

A Rescue-Bot that transforms into a police car and is partnered with Chief Charlie Burns. Chase has a "by-the-book" personality and tends to fuss over any new concept that violates any law he is familiar with, though at times his sense of humor and understanding emerges. He gets along well with his human partner Chief Charlie Burns.
  • Adorkable
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The Big Guy to Chief's Little Guy.
  • By-the-Book Cop: A stickler for following rules and laws to the letter.
    • Since he has no frame of reference to gauge the spirit of the law, he's glad to be paired with Charlie Burns, who knows everyone in town.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke
  • The Comically Serious
  • Cool Car: His alt-mode.
  • The Lancer: Seems to be the closest thing the bots have to a "second in command".
  • No Sense of Humor: Chase couldn't tell a decent joke to save his life, much less understand one.
  • The Smart Guy
  • The Spock: Though a more compassionate version than some others, coupled with a strong sense of morality, if his immediate disregard of the rules to stop a potentially dangerous and/or lethal toxic waste spill in "The Alien Invasion of Griffin Rock" is any indication.
    • Not stoic, just businesslike.
  • Shield Bash
  • Spock Speak
  • Undercover Cop Reveal: Went undercover to see what Evan and Miles were planning... without telling the others.


Function: Rescue Force Member

"I'm part tractor. It's what I do."

Voiced by: Imari Williams

A Rescue-Bot that transforms into a bulldozer and is partnered with Graham Burns. Boulder is fascinated with Earth culture and is always eager to learn more from books and other sources. He has a very kind and friendly demeanor.


Function: Rescue Force Air Support

"Fear is a great motivator."

Voiced by: Parvesh Cheena

A Rescue-Bot that transforms into a rescue helicopter and is partnered with Dani Burns. Back on Cybertron, Blades had a land-based vehicle mode and is not used to flying, thus culminating in a slight fear of heights. Out of the Rescue Bots, he is the most expressive emotionally.

    Front-line Autobots 

Optimus Prime

Function: Autobot Leader

Voiced by: Peter Cullen

Leader of the Autobots, who gave the Rescue Bots their mission. He appears mainly via view-screen.


Function: Scout

Legendary Autobot Scout, war hero, and member of Optimus Prime's team of Autobots. As seen in Transformers Prime, Bumblebee lost his voice box in the line of duty and possesses a unique form of speech.
  • Cute Mute: Thanks to an injury to his voice box he sustained during the war, Bumblebee can only communicate through R2-D2-esque beeps and whirrs.
  • Intelligible Unintelligible: While most humans (including the viewers) can't understand Bumblebee's beeping language, no Transformer ever seems to have this problem.


Burns Family

Chief Charlie Burns

Function: Rescue Chief

Voiced by: Maurice LaMarche

Griffin Rock's chief of police and leader of its Rescue Team. He is also the father of Cody, Kade, Dani, and Graham. He gets along well with his partner Chase and is a very levelheaded man.


Function: Fireman

Voiced by: Jason Marsden

Cody's older brother and Griffin Rock firefighter. He is somewhat of a glory-hog and isn't too keen on working with Heatwave at first, though they eventually come to respect each other (though neither would admit it).


Function: Engineer

Voiced by: Shannon McKain

Cody's older brother and Griffin Rock construction engineer. At first he has trouble working Boulder due in part to his own misconceptions. Though he is fascinated by Boulder and wishes to learn about Cybertron, he mistakenly believes that because Boulder is from an advanced alien civilization, there is little he (someone from a more primitive civilization like Earth's) could possibly teach him.


Function: Air Support

Voiced by: Lacey Chabert

Cody's older sister and Griffin Rock rescue helicopter pilot. Unlike her partner Blades, Dani loves flying and has trouble getting along with Blades due to his fear of heights, but eventually learns how to work with him.


Function: Mission Control

Voiced by: Elán Garfias

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).


Doctor Greene

Function: Scientist

Voiced by: LeVar Burton

Griffin Rock's inventor, scientist, and father of Francine Greene. Though many of his inventions he creates are meant to be helpful or with good intention, they have a tendency to go haywire or cause trouble in Griffin Rock, which the Rescue Bots and the Burns Family are forced to deal with. As a result, Doc Greene often finds himself being rescued from various mishaps caused by his inventions. His inventions include a solar-powered car, Floatium (a substitute for helium) and a high-powered communications dish.

Frankie Greene

Voiced by: Diamond White

Doc Greene's daughter and friend of Cody's. She is somewhat suspicious of the Rescue Bots. In "Countdown," it is revealed that Francine is afraid of the dark. In "The Haunting of Griffin Rock," it is revealed that Francine's middle name is Elma named after Griffin Rock's first scientist Elma Hendrickson.

Doctor Thaddeus Morocco

Voiced by: Tim Curry (season 1), Greg Ellis (season 2)

The recurring antagonist of the series. Dr. Thaddeus Morocco is a mad scientist who invents things to cause damage. He is behind several of the incidents that occurred in Griffin Rock. He plotted revenge against Chief Charlie Burns, Mayor Luskey, and Doc Greene for making him an outcast.

Mayor Luskey

The mayor of Griffin Rock.
  • It's All About Me
  • Jerk Ass
  • Mayor Pain: Sometimes his political ambitions get the best of him and sometimes this causes trouble for the town.
  • Never My Fault
  • Too Dumb to Live: A comprehensive list of such moments could fill a book. Two standout examples include hawking old, Spam-like canned meat that turned the consumer into a werebeast (granted, he didn't know about that, but still should have known better than to sell old meat), and ordering a computer charged with protecting the island turned up to full power after it demonstrated its fascist-like way of doing so.

Huxley Prescott

The resident news reporter.

Ana Baranova

A scientist of Griffon Rock who disappeared years ago when she went to stop the Griffon Rock Triangle with her sub-aquatic ship the Midgard. In the present day the Rescue team found her and with her help stopped the Triangle. She now live in Griffon Rock.
  • Not Good with People: Mostly due to being trapped in a submarine for over ten years, she's getting better though.

Evan and Myles

A pair of small-time criminals who often steal Griffin Rock technology to commit robberies on the island.
