    I'm a little confused on something. Were there only 13 Primes ever or is Optimus #14? Or is there like original 13 + all the ones we know like Sentinel, Nova, Rodimus, Optimus, etc?

    The Original Thirteen Transformers are just that, the founders.

    It's currently unsure if they are all "Primes", but at least Seven have "Prime" in their name (well...'Prima' is one of those). After the rule of the Thirteen, it was time for the new creations of Primus to rule the planet (the ones who were born from the Well of All Sparks). Each "generation" or something another tradition, however they decided, christened a "Prime", and it went on from there; Optimus is just a later descendant.

    The "Thirteen" do not have anything to do with the Primes who were the leaders of Cybertronians.

    There were 13 multiversal singularity original transformers and 7 were confirmed to be Primes. Any Prime that came after such as Zeta or Optimus were not one of the 13 and was just considered a descendant.

    The original 13 were the 'first' Primes, created by Primus.
    All other Primes after are considered 'descendants'.
