    How do Autobots and Decepticons eat?:confused: 

    I haven't seen a single cube of purplish glowing Energon so far, BTW.

    (I'm deaf, so I never got to hear the dialogue on the Youtube, which is my only source to watch the new episodes, BTW.)

    Optimus found a whole Decepticon ship full of Energon cubes in "Along Came a Spider"

    They drink oil for starters. The episode with the Constructicons show a lot of that going on.

    The 'Bots and 'Cons might even be using electricity as a power source. Or they may have outfitted themselves with solar cells.

    Ratchet takes stasis naps, perhaps that's another way to power up too?

    And how did Starscream get food while hiding out in the wrecked ship for fifty years?

    Heck, how do robots even survive in outer space to begin with?

    Thanks for the answers, BTW.^_^

    The same way our own robotics probes survive in space.


    You act as if robots need to eat. They could be EXTREMELY energy efficient, or they could be solar powered.

    Nuh Uh!!! Wizards don't exist in this Universe!! Nuh Uh.

    Honestly, I think they just power up by standing still. I think Bulkhead commented on needed a break to recharge when they got the new base.

    well i think its like the iron giant maybe they eat metal some times for extra energy because in the opening bulkhead eats a barrel of oil or they just drink oil for energy or they sleep for energy like ratchet takes naps

    well, someone needs to be a jerk and say it-ITS A CARTOON

    lol, but i go with the idea that whatever they eat/drink is burnt up inside them for fuel, and they power up by not miving-like their sparks always give them power, but need to rest for those sparks to power up again.

    Well, for one, they're not human. Therefore, they do not need require oxygen to survive.
