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

Override is a Velocitron Autobot from the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.

It doesn't matter if I'm a guy or a girl, I'm still hot!

Override, also known as Nitro Prime, is the best racer on Velocitron, and as such is the leader of the planet. She leads the planet alongside Ransack. She (or he, if male) seemingly embodies the culture itself; she is quick-witted, decisive, self-sure and always looking for a challenge. This has its upsides and downsides: while she's brave and determined with a never-give-up attitude, she can also be cocky to the point of arrogant, if not selfish and shortsighted. She entered the great race for leadership, and has been defending her title and proving herself more than a match for anyone since.

After contact with the Autobots from Cybertron, particularly Hot Shot and Optimus Prime, she has matured into a more careful, more compassionate robot, less focused on being the best racer and more focused on being the best leader for her people... though she still maintains her never-lose attitude and love of high-speed challenges.

She has developed a close bond with the human girl Lori, referring to her as "Little Sister", which Lori reciprocates by calling Override "Big Sister".

Note: In Japan, Override is a "male" Transformer. She was originally intended to be a "male" in the Hasbro version of Cybertron, but Cartoon Network, the channel with the airing rights to the show, felt it needed more female presence in the main cast, and Override was chosen to change genders. This seems to have worked out really well.

It's like the Crying Game all over again.

I want to tell you about the Transformers!

  • Override (Deluxe class, 2005)
    • Japanese ID number: GC-10
    • Accessories: Engine-blaster, Speed Planet Cyber Planet Key

Dude looks like a lady.

Part of the Speed Planet theme, Override transforms into a sleek futuristic race car. Plugging a Cyber Planet Key into the rear portion of her car mode causes two non-firing blasters to flip out into attack position; this assembly becomes a hand-weapon for robot mode. Override's transformation is partially spring-loaded, flipping her torso and arms into position, requiring only her lower body and backpack to be manually configured. She came with a gold-bordered Velocitron-style Cyber Planet Key.
There are a few small deco changes between the Hasbro and Takara versions of the toy; Takara's has a gold face and no faction sigil, while Hasbro's has an orange face, Autobot faction sigil, and gives her Key the Key code "dy7p".
This version of Override also was available in two different store-exclusive multi-packs. The first was a Wal-Mart set, including the Cybertron-series Tiny Tin version of the Race Mini-Con Team member Mirage. The second was a Target-exclusive "Drag Race" (...yeah, there's a joke there) set with Hot Shot.
This mold was used to make the evil clone Dark Nitro Convoy.
  • Override GTS (Deluxe class, 2006)

Lady looks like a dude.

Override's first toy was redecoed into a non-show coloration, replacing her white for a light gray, and gaining more black in her scheme. She still came with a gold -bordered Velocitron Cyber Planet Key, though this one has the Key code "dj9n".
Early solicitations for this toy used the name "Double Clutch", suggesting that at one time, it might have been under consideration as being a new character. However, the first true Hasbro announcement of the toy at BotCon 2005 was that it was Override again.



  • Override's alternate mode of a futuristic race car, as well as its red and white color scheme evokes the Mach 5 from the Speed Racer series.
  • Override's color scheme is similar to the Generation One Autobot Minerva.
  • In Cybertron, Lori and Override refer to each other affectionately as "big sister"/"little sister". Being male, Galaxy Force Nitro Convoy's relationship with Lori is slightly different, where he refers to Lori as what essentially translates to "little miss".
  • In the Hungarian dub, Override is both male and female. Don't think about that too hard.
