The Decepticon leader accepted the Chaos Bringer’s bargain and was reborn as Galvatron. Driven mad by dark energy, Galvatron is unpredictable and dangerous to all in his path, friend or foe alike.

  • 1% 2% chance for each Dark Energy Charge to Stun the opponent for 2.5 seconds.

  • 3.3% chance for each Dark Energy Charge to consume all charges and inflict Dark Burn, instantly dealing 80~100% 100~140% of Attack as Energy Damage.

Synergy Bonuses Edit



Charge max energy charges as much as possible. (making sure to sidestep ranged heavies then resume charging) Charge max charges then use Special 3 for a total of 60 charges. Heavy Attacks are your friend and a duplicated Galvatron will have uninturupted heavy attack. Dark Charges power ranged attacks and allow Dark Burns, increasing your ranged damage.


Galvatron is more likely to use special attacks when fully charged, so you may want to wait for him to charge up and bait out and dodge his specials then counterattack, unless Will of Unicron is active. If you don't want him to charge, interrupt him with heavy attacks.

Strong Match-upsEdit

  • Ultra Magnus - Galvatron alternates between Physical and Energy Damage types, making this Bot extremely hard for Ultra Magnus to adapt to.
  • Grimlock - Grimlock will not have time to purify Galvatron's Dark Burn, making it one of the few Damaging Debuffs that can bypass the king lizard's signature ability.
  • Cyclonus - Galvatron's armada won't be able to nullify his unstoppable with his Dark Fields.

Weak Match-upsEdit

  • Prowl - Keeping Galvatron’s power low is the best way to keep him from using his devastating Special Attacks.
  • Ratchet - Galvatron’s signature ability requires the opponent to be at low health, something Ratchet is adept at preventing.
  • Blaster - Decreasing ranged damage and healing from blocked ranged attacks will keep Blaster kicking Galvatron's tailpipe.

Recommended ModulesEdit

  • Strange Refractor - Galvatron must Block to channel Dark Energy; giving this dark Decepticon the ability to Stun opponents when Blocking, and greater block damage from his greater block proficiency creates a deadly combination.
  • Laser Guidance Module - The destructive potential of Galvatron's Ranged Attacks are unmatched by any other bot. Placing him on the Laser Guidance Module is a great way to stop raiders in their tracks.


  • Galvatron Crystal
  • The entire month of October offered many ways to obtain Galvatron Chips; Duplicate Bots, exploring Special Missions, exploring Alliance Missions, Galvatron's Bounty Arenas, Raids, the Daily Calendar, and Energon Bundles.
    • 3-Star Galvatron: 10,000 Galvatron Chips
    • 4-Star Galvatron: 100,000 Galvatron Chips

  • Bot Crystals (added 1/17/2018)


Trivia Edit

  • His design is based on the Generations Titans Return Galvatron toy.
  • Galvatron's Special 2 is bugged; If your Bot got successfully hit by Galvatron's first hit, you could still make your Bot sidestep his cannon blast. This was fixed in v4.1; but instead if your Bot blocks Galvatron's first hit, you can cancel his cannon blast by hitting him.
