    Meet the human ancestor who walked Earth 4 million years ago

    It's a little unsettling how Transformers look so much like people. In reality we know it's because kids probably would empathize with giant robotic spider things. But what if there's an in-canon reason too? After all, technically the Transformers robot form existed millions of years before humans. So, what if Transformers aren't copying the look of humans. What if humans are copying the look of Transformers?

    Theory - The Ark crashes 4 Million years ago. There are no advance species on the planet and none of the tools necessary to repair the Ark exists. So Teletraan 1 thinks outside the box and sets the course for an advance lifeform to develop on Earth, a lifeform that will empathize with Transformers and seek to help them. A lifeform that looks like the Transformers' robot modes. Teletraan 1 genetically alters several primates and creates the building blocks for humans to eventually evolve. Over the years Teletraan 1 keeps pushing evolution toward its intended goal. The experiment is still continuing but the erupting of the Ark's volcano forces Teletraan 1 to reawaken the Transformers to prevent their destruction. Thus the Decepticons awaken to a world with beings that look like them and who have created the infrastructure they needed to revitalize Cybertron.

    Now why Quintessons created a robot species that looks nothing like them is anyone's guess. I'm not sure why Quintessons were suddenly so hung up on arms and legs when they themselves didn't have any. Perhaps the Aerialbots went back in time again and were the inspiration for the Quintesson robots? Would that count as an unending Mobius Loop?

    Problem is the effects and their causes at play here, and the motivations of Teletraan-1. Teletraan-1 can do all that, but can't just... turn itself on so it can revive just the Autobots and end the war then and there?

    Well, Teletraan 1 apparently had no stake in who won the war. It was happy to rebuild the Decepticons. It only cared about servicing the Transformers as a whole.

    Keep in mind that Teletraan I was severely malfunctioning at the time --In fact that seems to support this theory; the rogue supercomputer could've easily interpreted our "misshapen" ancestors as needing "repairs" or "upgrades," and such a being capable of operating on living metal surely had the capability to influence our geneology. As for the Quintesson's design philosophies, their tentacular limbs didn't seem very sturdy or well-suited for manual labor, I mean the word literally comes from the root for hands.

    Y'know if our common ancestors happened upon the earthbound Transformers it could've also simply affected our beauty standards... explaining our deep-rooted love for giant robots.

    Saul Tigh has some thoughts on this....

    (Seriously, that is about one of the most interesting, out there, and downright original ideas in TF mythology since, well, Beast Wars)

    Would he be able to create organic life though?

    He wouldn’t have to create it, they were different levels of primates existing well before the ship crashed

    So all that will be to be done with the manipulation of the existing life and a genetic level

    The thing is, it's not just humans and Transformers that look humaonoid, we also have various other species and aliens, such as Skuxxoids, the cat and dog people from 'Big Broadcast', the alien samurai from 'Nijika', Primacron, the Eurythmans and so on.

    In my view, the most likely reason is convergent evolution, i.e. completely seperate life forms that evolve to look like each other over time. There are real-word examples - such as the Marsupial Mole, which evolved - completely on it's own - to look a lot like the regular (placental) mole.

    In fact, the origin Transformers' humanoid characteristics were likely caused by organics, rather than the other way around. Remember, the Quintessons built the Transformers to be sold as slaves to organic beings around the universe. Hence the Transformers being designed to look bipedal, simply to blend in with their 'end user', i.e. the various bipedal aliens that inhabit the Transformers cartoon universe.

    Maybe then it was Primus who was responsible for seeding life throughout the cosmos ?

    Per the comic, the initial battle between Primus and Unicron resulted in the Big Bang, so it wouldn't be too much of a stretch, fiction wise...

    :cool: 

    Okay, that may have been a little rude, but still. Interesting theory, but no.

    Interesting theory, I do like it. But not really plausible. Its hard to create life when buried and shut off in a volcano. And it wouldn't account for the two other humanoid species on two different planets that we've seen.

    Indeed. Also, if one is to consider Beast Wars canon with Sunbow G1, then that doesn't quite work as it's heavily implied that the Vok are the ones directing humanity, not Teletran-1.

    But it would make excellent fanon and help explain some things.

    When in doubt, the Aerialbots did it. Gateways to other places did exist on Earth. The Decepticons literally just stumbled into some random time portal into the past at one point during G1. So maybe all humanoid races are offshoots from Earth.

    Well... Vox aside (maybe they're just a bunch of liars. Or Teletraan 1 = The Vox, mind blown!) But Beast Wars just reaffirms the theory. Why else did Teletraan 1 need to create a human race? Because Transformers couldn't function due to the high energon levels outside the ship! The Autobots/Decepticons weren't advance enough to take on beast forms.

    Damn those aerialbots! Running around and creating life without permission!

    Welllll...you really can't push the Vox aside, though. That's kind of like trying to explain Rodimus Prime without the Matrix of Leadership.

    Well the Vok never really say WHAT they're doing or who they are. Perhaps their experiment was just watching what Teletraan 1 was doing and testing the results. Once they saw that the end result of Teletraan 1's actions was a group of warring time traveling robots, the Vok decided to end the planet.

    Hey, it's your fanon. You do you. But there's already evidence through interviews and notes by the writers (and various implications in the show) that the Vok were the ones behind humanity, not Teletran-1. Soooo, I'm going with them.
