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

Prowl is a rookie Autobot serving under Rodimus.

Prowl became one of the first Autobots (possibly only one of two) to join the new Autobot S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons And Tactics) Team specially formed to take the fight for energon directly to the Decepticons. He also sometimes works with the Mini-Con Longarm.

Energon anime

Voice actor: Alistair Abell (US), Makoto Yasumura (Japan)

Prowl was a young, inexperienced security officer on Rodimus' exploration ship. During their first encounter with the Autobots under Optimus Prime's command on Mars, he used an energon lasso to wrap energy beams around Ironhide's bullbar and fling the latter Autobot and Kicker into the air. He then powerlinked with his leader so that Rodimus could become his powerful Powerlinx Rodimus form, who quickly defeated Ironhide.

A close friend and pupil of Landmine, Prowl aided his Transformer allies during the Energon War and the Powerlinx Battles.

Dreamwave Comics continuity




  • Prowl (Deluxe, 2004)
    • Japanese ID number: SC-11
    • Accessories: Missile launcher, missile
EnergonProwl toy


The Energon version of Prowl combines elements from the various earlier versions of vehicle-mode Prowls; he transforms into a Cybertronic (Armada Prowl) police vehicle (durhey) styled after an F-1 racer (Machine Wars Prowl), plus he has kanji found on Japanese police cars (Robots in Disguise Prowl). He is armed with a transparent blue spring-loaded missile launcher that is mounted on the side of his vehicle for storage.
As a Deluxe-class Autobot, he can also form the top or bottom half of a Powerlinx combination with any other compatible Energon Autobot.
  • Prowl with Longarm & Starscream with Zapmaster (Multi-pack, 2004)
    • Accessories: Disc, 2 hand-attachments, missile launcher, missile
Available only at Sam's Club wholesale shopping club outlets, this version of Prowl is a redeco of the Armada Red Alert mold, transforming into a Nissan Patrol rescue SUV. When a Mini-Con is attached to his hood-mounted Mini-Con port, the fenders open. Pulling back on the attached Mini-Con launches a rescue disk/missile and activates electronic lights and sounds. Similarly, when a Mini-Con is used on his emergency lights port and is pushed forward, the sirens flash and a voice chip proclaims "RED-ALERT! WOO-WOO-WOO-WOO!" (in a higher pitch than the original toy's). In robot mode, pulling back on the Mini-Con unlocks a shoulder-mounted missile/rescue grappling claw launcher, which can also be detached and held in his hand. His right leg guard contains several tools that can be attached onto his left wrist socket, while his left leg guard can be unfolded to become a Mini-Con repair bay. He comes with the Mini-Con Longarm, as well as Starscream and Zapmaster.
This mold was also used to make Movie Inferno.
  • Autobot S.W.A.T. Team (Mega-class set, 2004)
    • Accessories: Missile launcher, missile
Part of a K-Mart exclusive set with Checkpoint, Prowl was redecoed into a black vehicle with white detailing, a kind of reversal of the more "traditional" Prowl colors, which makes his combination with Checkpoint look real nice.



So fast he never happened.

  • Prowl's instructions feature a head that is almost entirely different from the final, except for the tailpipes. It bears a striking resemblance to Blurr. This same head design was shown in a magazine preview for the Japanese version of the Energon cartoon.
