Transformers: Energon is an action anime set ten years following the final episode of Transformers: Armada.

Ten years after the war of the Mini-Cons and the apparent destruction of Unicron and Megatron, the Earth has entered into a secret alliance with the combined forces of the Autobots and Decepticons. This pact resulted in the construction of several vast Cybertron Cities on Earth and throughout the Sol system in order to mine for Energon, a mineral rich in energy required for the survival of the Transformers. However, evil is slowly beginning to rise again in the darkness of space.

The series, like Armada, was co-produced by American and Japanese companies. Although, the damage done to the series is significantly less, one episode was not dubbed for unknown reasons. Scorponok's Scars apparently will not be dubbed for American audiences as the following episode, Crash Course, was edited in such a way to account for the events of the episode.

The series ended after one 52-episode season broken into 13-episode arcs. It was intended by Hasbro to continue the series with Transformers: Cybertron but the Japanese production studio rebooted the universe instead.
