Humans (also known as "fleshies" by Cybertronians) are the dominant sentient species on the planet Earth. Though far from the least advanced species in the galaxy, they are technologically backward compared to their galactic neighbours.

In terms of physical abilities, they are of average size and build compared to other species.

The universe however, seems to hate them.



Human beings began evolving on the planet Earth around 8 to 10 million years ago. The Crucible TFWikiFavicon.png The Cybertronian artifact known as the Engima of Combination, launched from Cybertron by Galvatron, played a role in their evolution by fostering cooperation between human minds and pushing along their development at key moments.

Human beings first became aware of alien life either through an encounter with Eukarians (Cybertronian descendants), Hearts of Steel #1 TFWikiFavicon.png or through the arrival of the Dire Wraiths. Earthfall: Part Three The human race as a whole became aware of alien life when the Decepticons invaded the world in 2008. All Hail Megatron TFWikiFavicon.png Though the Autobots defeated the Decepticons, a strong anti-alien feeling began to grow among the humans with the Cybetronians becoming a particular target of the hatred.

Human society was divided into several nation states across the planet and thus lacked a singular leader or head of planetary government much to Rom's shock and alarm. Earthfall: Part Two


Human technology is largely primitive compared to the other species in the galaxy. What they do is largely derived from Cybertronian sources either through the Enigma fostering cooperation or mundane reverse engineering from leftover Cybertronian artifacts. ONoffON TFWikiFavicon.png M.A.S.K.: Revolution As part of their long term infiltration of Earth, the Dire Wraiths would interfere with human development and commission projects to their own ends advancing human knowledge.

As a result of this, human technology is at a higher level than the Solstar Order expected it to be when Rom arrived on Earth. Earthfall: Part Four


Humans are known for having a rich culture comprised of many forms of media. The Autobots aboard the Lost Light were noted to enjoy Earth culture The One Where They Go to Earth TFWikiFavicon.png and several Dire Wraiths were able to quote Earth writers and religious texts.
