  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The Unicron Trilogy is a sub-division of the overall Transformers franchise that refers to the following series:

The name comes from the Transformers Generation 1 villain introduced in the animated movie, which was the first time the character had been adapted for a new television series. Each series in the Unicron Trilogy dealt with the classic Transformers lore of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons, modified for a modern audience. It began with the introduction of the Mini-cons, smaller Transformers (less than human sized) that can combine with the larger robots to give them powerful upgrades. The story of their origin and the war to claim their power leads into the introduction of Unicron himself. Energon and Cybertron continued after Unicrons initial defeat with additional problems that arise that could lead to the destruction of Cybertron.

Cybertron the toy line (and thus the gimmicks and preliminary story) was developed by Hasbro to be a continuation of Armada and Energon, but when the anime, Transformers: Galaxy Force, was developed it was made as a different continuity line altogether (direct references are made between Armada and Energon, while Cybertron is a little bit more vague about it). The English dub of Cybertron gave it stronger ties as per Hasbro's intention. After some time of contradictory statements, Cybertron was eventually Retconed by the Japanese powers to once again be part of the timeline.

Because Armada is what kicked off the trilogy some people refer to it synonymously with that series.
