Perceptor's thirst for knowledge is unquenchable. He will seek it to the exclusion of all else. To him, being on Earth is like a miner finding a new vein of gold - each eagerly plumbs untold riches, neither knowing when his source will run out, if ever. Perceptor's specific role in the Autobot cause is studying how best the Autobots should adapt to Earth, and conversely how Earth's alien environment is affecting the Autobots. Autobot Leader Optimus Prime considers this research vital to the Autobots' survival as long as they're marooned on Earth. Although good-natured and friendly, Perceptor is not easily drawn into joining with other Autobots to do anything other than his work.

Preceptor was one of many Autobots that got petrified by Gigatron when the Autobots tried to team up against Gigatron. He was later unpetrified after Jetfires defeat and was later seen helping Ratchet repair Jetfires Stabilizer.

Preceptor is deeply injured like all of the Autobots when Darth Grievous wounded all of the Autobots with his Sith Magic.

Preceptor was hailed as a hero and was standing next to Optimus and Ultra Magnus at the end of the Transformers Wars.

Dark Future

In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Perceptor was killed by Darth Grievous. His last words before dying is "NOOOO!".


Perceptor is extremely intelligent. His capacity for data storage is second only to Optimus Prime's. Although familiar with all the sciences, his specialties are metallurgy, molecular chemistry, and electrical engineering. He has two different capacities in microscope mode. He can magnify objects up to 10,000 times as an optical microscope and up to a million times as a scanning electron microscope. Using his magnifying lenses to concentrate and intensify its beam, he can convert his lens barrel to a powerful light cannon. It can blast a hole in a cinder block wall 2,000 miles away with pinpoint accuracy. He can use the cannon in robot mode or convert to a third form and use it as a stationary field artillery piece. He also carries a concussion rifle in robot mode.
