Transformers: Cybertron, known in Japan originally as Transformers: Galaxy Force (Toransufōmā: Garakushī Fōsu), is the 2005-2006 Transformers toy line and animated series, another co-production between Hasbro and Takara and a sequel to the previous series, Transformers: Armada and Transformers: Energon (see Continuity, below). In the anime, all of the Transformers are computer-generated, while the human beings and backgrounds are rendered in traditional cel animation.

Transformers: Cybertron features a large cast of diverse characters; with each planet the Autobots and Decepticons visit offering civilizations with differing ideologies, mentalities and transformations. The vehicular inhabitants of Velocitron are obsessed with racing, which shapes the entire culture and commerce of the world. In contrast, those who dwell on the Jungle Planet settle their differences the old-fashioned way, through shows of unrelenting might in their feral animal modes. The industrious robots of Gigantion, on the other hand, would much rather work together than compete, and prefer to build instead of destroying. And traveling from world to world are Optimus Prime's Autobots, a team of loyal, trustworthy soldiers who work so well because they're all so different, and Megatron's Decepticons, a rag-tag band of troops plucked from different planets, forced into servitude by Megatron's fearsome power.

When the destruction of Unicron results in the formation of a massive black hole, the planet Cybertron, home world of the Transformers, is threatened, and its population is evacuated to Earth, taking the forms of local vehicles and machinery to hide from humanity. As this occurs, Optimus Prime's elite team of Autobot warriors are approached by the ancient Transformer Vector Prime, who has emerged from his resting place in the void outside of time to inform them of the legendary Cyber Planet Keys, ancient artifacts of power which can stop the black hole and save the universe. Lost due to an accident during an attempt to create a cross-universal space bridge network, the Cyber Planet Keys now reside on four worlds somewhere in the universe - unfortunately, Vector Prime's map showing their location is stolen by Decepticon leader Megatron, and both forces relocate to Earth as the race to find them begins.
