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

Knock Out is a Mini-Con from the Armada portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.

... yeah, we can't think of anything PG. Move along.

The talkative Knock Out operates as the Land Military Mini-Con Team's voice, though he still takes orders from Wreckage when the heat is on. He's not nearly as soldierly as his commander, though beneath his frequent complaints and mercenary demeanor, he basically just wants to look out for his friends.

Six wheels of justice. Knock Out's on the right.

After the Exodus crashed on Earth, Knock Out lay dormant until being found and reactivated by the Decepticons.

Knock out, Buzzsaw and Oval were assigned to perform repairs on the newly-arrived Decepticon Tidal Wave. Runaway

Once he was reunited with Bonecrusher and Wreckage, however, the team eventually sent a signal to contact the Mini-Cons recovered by the Autobots. This ultimately led to a confrontation in which the Land Military Team, as well as many of the other Decepticon Mini-Cons, chose to join the Autobot side. Knock Out and the others remained with the Autobots, eventually following them to Cybertron and coming together to fight their evil creator Unicron.

Knock Out and the Land Military Team were captured and altered by the Decepticons to be used as weapons of conquest millions of years ago. They escaped aboard the Exodus with most other Mini-Cons, and declared themselves free agents upon reactivating on Earth. Nonetheless, at the request of Alexis, Carlos and Rad, they freed Jolt, Longarm and Sparkplug from Decepticon captivity and helped them save the Autobots from the Decepticons.

Later they were taken against their will to Dualor's moonbase, where Knock Out fought with Jolt about whether to accept the Destruction Mini-Con Team's demand for cooperation. Following the destruction and abandonment of the moonbase, the Land Military Team stayed with the Autobots, where they were instrumental in separating Star Saber from Megatron's grip after he used it to destroy the invading Galvatron.

Finally, Knock Out joined with all other active Mini-Cons in returning to Cybertron and activating Over-Run's Mini-Con Matrix, incapacitating Unicron and leading to his destruction.

Panini Armada comic

Knock Out, Bonecrusher and Wreckage were recovered in 1959 by the US government in Las Vegas. They were converted into remote-control military equipment by the Extra-Terrestrial Response Division, but overrode their control long enough to give a message to Rev Amos Hume before being recaptured. After the ETRD's funding was cut decades later, former technicians Quint and Hathaway attempted to auction the Mini-Cons off. The transaction was interrupted by the arrival of an Autobot shuttle carrying the Air Defense Mini-Con Team and their human friends, whom Hume had contacted upon seeing images of the Transformers on television. Knock Out and the others then presumably joined the Autobots.
