    Hey guys, I'm just wondering if someone could make a full list detailing what characters were mentioned and showcased in the scene in TLK where Anthony Hopkins is telling Cade and Vivian that Transformers have been all over world history. I don't know if there was already a thread about this, but there was nothing i could find here or on TFWiki about it, so I just was wondering

    I think it'd be best if we built off each other's lists, so I'm adding to this one.

    I think we should also try to be more specific. There are Knights, but Quintessa's first 12 Knights, the Guardian Knights, were the ones who defected to each pair with one of the 12 Knights of the Round Table. All 12 combine to form Dragonstorm. The only Guardian Knights in the film with official names are Dragonicus, Skullitron, Skullitron, and Stormrein. Stormrein's the red one who is initially seen paired with Merlin the Wizard and giving him his Staff at the beginning of the film. He's clearly not part of Dragonstorm because he's red instead of silver and also standing right there with Merlin when the dragon arrives, yet he's seen at the Round Table as one of the 12 and he's a part of the toy that transforms into Dragonstorm, so that's an inconsistency on their part. Since the Guardian Knights are the only ones explicitly referenced by Burton in that scene, there's no telling as to whether he was aware of Stormrein, the zombie Knights at Merlin's tomb, or the Talisman Knight who gave Cade the Talisman.

    It's important to remember that while Optimus Prime is a Knight, he isn't a Guardian Knight. Burton seems very well-versed in knights altogether, but it's uncertain whether or not he's aware of other Knights like the Dinobots. Mini-Dinobots might also be Knights by association. However, in the final battle, he doesn't seem surprised that Quintessa's created new evil Knights like the Infernocons who combined into Infernocus, or that she's appointed Megatron as a Knight too.

    There's Cogman, referred to as a Headmaster due to a concept that would've shown up in a sequel, meaning Burton was aware of the Headmasters.

    There's the Watch that Killed Hitler.

    There's a pillar from Sentinel Prime's Space Bridge.

    He's aware of the Submarine that Cade and Viviane ride in, so his study must contain something on them.

    He's aware of Quintessa and Unicron once he opens that book in the library, so his study must contain something on them. Primus is referenced several times in Bayverse timelines, but it's uncertain whether or not they ever planned to include him in the films given that he wasn't in the original Unicron storyline nor the original cartoon, to begin with. If he does exist, it's uncertain whether or not Burton is aware that he is Cybertron.
