The name or term Jolt refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Jolt (disambiguation).


Jolt is a young Autobot described as a troublemaker and a bit of a snob but loves to battle Decepticons. He seems to have fondness of Earth's nature and a habit of saving energy explaining why he chose an eco-friendly car as a disguise. He is armed with two electro-whips. Jolt lures his enemies in close to deliver a crippling blow with his electro-whips.

Jolt later travels to Egypt with the other Autobots when they were deported by the U.S. Government. He is seen shooting Decepticons behind Sideswipe.

Later, he connects his crackling electro-whips to a newly resurrected Optimus Prime with Jetfire's corpse, creating an electromagnetic field that transfers Jetfire's parts onto Optimus's body, temporarily upgrading Optimus into Jetpower Optimus Prime so he can defeat the Fallen.

Along with Bumblebee, Knock Out and Landmine, Jolt was part of the team sent to counter Soundwave's attack on the power plant. He was also present at Galloway's rant about the damaged caused.

Later, he was on the NEST cargo plane transporting the captured Soundwave. He survived the crash caused by Buzzsaw and helped the other Autobots transport Soundwave by road. When Dirt Boss attacked the zoo where Soundwave is, Beastbox attacked Jolt. But after an intervention from Bumblebee, he survives the encounter.

Later in Inyokern, California, Jolt, Bumblebee, Knock Out, Landmine and the others meet up with Optimus Prime, Ironhide and Sideswipe. They now have Soundwave secured and under interrogation.

He later takes part in the assault on the secret base in Crater Lake, Oregon and supposedly survives the battle. Nefarious issue 2

Toys

  • Jolt (Deluxe, 2009)
Rotf-jolt-toy-deluxe
Jolt transforms into a Blue Chevrolet Volt car. In robot mode, if the the knobs on his arm are turned, his electro-whips will flip out. His MechAlive happens when his waist is turned, causing gears in his stomach move the opposite way. The picture on the back of his box appears to portray his electro whips as his middle fingers. Oddly enough, the Autobot insignia on Jolt's torso is the classic design, rather than the movie design featured on the other RotF figures.

Notes

Well, at least I'm not Wheelie.

  • He doesn't have any lines in the film. This is most likely because he was a last-minute addition to the film.[October, 2009]
  • His namesake wasn't much of a talker himself to begin with either.
  • In the comic, Jolt is killed at a certain point between Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon.
  • His name could be due to its resemblance to Chevrolet Volt, the car he had chosen, as it rhymes with it.
