There are a lot Of characters in Autobot Academy. We mean it.
- Butt-Monkey: A lot of humor from him involves Wasp getting hurt in some way or another.
Roleplay Main Characters:
One of the students at the academy, Longshot is witty, sarcastic, and never misses his shots. Currently very chummy with Saber.
- Accidental Misnaming: Sometimes is called "Dropshot" by some, and humorously called "Shortshot" by Rook.
- The Ace: Has perfect aim, seeing as all the shots fired by him never miss.
- Berserk Button: Comparing him to someone who Longshot views in a negative light will definitely tick him off.
- Crazy-Prepared: He apparently has a custom Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle, a shoulder-cannon, and a grapple gun attached to said shoulder-cannon.
- Deadpan Snarker: Is very snarky, and has gotten on the nerves of the teachers.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: He honestly doesn't want to be at the Academy. Averted by the time the school days come around.
Another student of the academy, Aranea has a very troubled past, and not so loving parents. She isn't very social, and her mind-reading capabilities definitely don't help her in the "social" category.
- Berserk Button: Threaten her in any way, or mention her parents, and she will firmly kick your ass.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: While not really a battle, she does hand Circuit his ass on a finely tuned silver platter.
- HeelFace Turn: Averted in that she immediately leaves after getting into some bad business with Circuit.
- I Know You're Watching Me: Her mind reading abilities allow her to know if someone's looking at her.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: She has four arms in robot mode.
- Telepathy: Her talent. She can read minds, as well as project her own thoughts.
A not so honest bot, with the power of persuasion, Circuit lives in the moral grey zone. He loves to swindle people, but his greed gets the better of him at times.
- Anti-Hero: Not the worst of bots, but not the greatest bot either.
- Badass in Distress: He just falls Waspinator style from the Xanthium.
- Berserk Button: Don't make fun of him being a Monoformer.
- Charm Person: His talent. He can convince people to do what he wants, provided they trust him. Given his personality, this basically never works.
- Dirty Coward: Whenever he's in a pickle, he's prone to try and convince his enemy to not fight, blackmail, or just plain runaway from fights.
- Handicapped Badass: Despite him not being able to transform, he's still got some good persuasion skills.
Saber is a bit of an egotistical mech, but he has a good heart. Currently very chummy with Longshot.
- Because I'm Good at It: He really loves to show off his sword skills.

- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may have an ego, but he truly wants to be friends with Longshot, and wants to see the best of all his friends.

A student at the Academy with a talent that never goes his way. Misfire was the indirect cause of his mother's death, which broke him.
- Adaptational Heroism: In canon, Misfire's a Decepticon. Here, he's training to be an Autobot.
- Dark and Troubled Past: He really got hit hard in the parents department. He accidentally killed his mom, and who knows where his dad is, leaving poor Misfire living alone in the alleyways.
- Heartbroken Badass: His mother's death really hit him hard. Alongside that, he blames himself for anything if it seems like it killed someone.
- The Load: He feels like he is this to the others because he feels he is not that useful.
- Power Incontinence: He has the power to manipulate energy, and shoot large orbs of plasma, but he cannot control where it goes, or where it comes from.

A student at the academy, Not much can be said about Wheeljack except that he understands how to make things go BOOM.
- Demoted to Extra: Doesn't really get much action out in the academy. Could be due to inactive player.
Hosehead is the all-loving, friendly student at the Autobot academy. He tries to be friendly with everyone, and loves to have friends at his back, although he's a little more cautious about rules.
- All-Loving Hero: He is the friendliest of the cast.

A shy bot with a dark past. Mach Dart has the power of infiltration, and is useful in espionage.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Is the result of an emergency bondage between two brothers.
- The Sneaky Guy: Can use his abilities to perform sabotage, sneak-attack, or spy on enemies.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: From what's been observed, Mach Dart's "infiltration" talent consists only of changing his faction symbol.

- Training Dummy: Was put into this position at one point by the Rainmakers. He gets better.
A detatched pyronetic who is not to good with socializing with people.
Buster is a friendly bot, and a student at the academy. He can coat himself in armor, and make himself a cybertronian wall.
- Actor Existence Limbo: Could be due to other events that the Player has to deal with, but Fuego and Buster rarely ever show up.

A shy, and nervous cadet at the academy with the power to freeze things with just a touch.
- There's No Place Like Home: She really wants to go back home at times.
Roleplay Side Characters:
Sideways is very confusing. No one knows whose side he is on, who he is, or what he wants. His own goals are very obscure, and unknown.
- Adaptational Heroism: In canon, he only works with the Autobots as a Double Reverse Quadruple Agent. Here, he's training to be an Autobot.
- Anti-Hero: Sideways definitely counts as this, because he's not a good guy, nor is he a bad guy.
- Beat Them at Their Own Game: Does this to Saber and Longshot, seeing as he became the Short-Range Guy, Long-Range Guy all at once to defeat the two by copying their powers.
Ramjet is a headstrong and pretty much nuts bot, but he has a good heart, and because of it the conehead's always wanting to help others, often to his own detriment.
- Adaptational Heroism: In canon, Ramjet's a Decepticon thug. Here, he's training to be an Autobot and acts as a vigilante hero.
- Dumb Is Good: While not dumb, his combat strategy of "Shoot everything, everywhere" definitely counts as this.
- Loon with a Heart of Gold: He acts crazy, wears outlandish costumes and his manners make people think of him as a dangerous lunatic, yet he's one of the kindest bots in the Academy, desiring to be a hero for the sake of doing good, even if it may backfire on him.
- Second Super-Identity: In addition to officially enrolling into Autobot Academy to become a hero, Ramjet also wears the guise of "Jetman", a vigilante who acts much more seriously than he himself normally does.
A student with the power to understand anything technologically, although he desperately wants to be popular among the lower-classmen.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He can create a Sniper Rifle that automatically shoots targets for him, with 100% accuracy, with only a Sniper-Rifle and some scrap-metal. Sheesh.

- Good Is Not Dumb: Despite his stature saying that he would be dumb, he is most definitely not.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: He may not show that, but Rook genuinely cares enough about the welfare of his students to provide them help when needed.
- Stronger with Age: He is very experienced and strong, fitting for an ex-member of the Astro Marines Corps.
