Humans are the dominant form of life on planet Earth. They come in all shapes and sizes but lack the ability to convert into other forms. The species has a habit of getting embroiled in the adventures of shape-changing robots from other planets. While the carbon-based bipeds seem fragile and need things like oxygen to survive some of them are surprisingly durable and useful. Handily many GoBots can convert into vehicles that are ideal for carrying humans around.
Challenge of the GoBots
While GoBots may have made some contact with humans in Early Intermediate times In Search of Ancient GoBonauts the first recorded contact between GoBotron and the people of Earth came when the disgruntled NASA scientist Zebediah Braxis, who hatched a plan to conquer the planet with the Renegades. However, they were soon opposed by other NASA personnel Matt Hunter, A.J. Foster and Nick Burns, who soon formed an alliance with the Guardians, and the Eastern bloc scientist Anya Turgenova. After Braxis and the Renegades were foiled Earth became an ally of the Guardians, creating UNECOM under the command of General Newcastle.

Humans were also caught up in the struggle between Stron-Domez's Renegade Robo Machines and the Security Forces of Robotron. Stron-Domez planned to conquer Earth and started on the human settlement of Cholkham until the Security Forces stopped them. The Guardians later made an ally of the human orphan Charlie Bampton. Sadly the human authorities suffered from the old problem of telling whether the robot destroying towns or the robots saving towns were the bad guys or good guys and a squad of human soldiers attempted to attack the Security Forces. Their weapons were useless against the robots' armour, though thankfully the Security Forces avoided excessive force in dealing with them. Charlie was more fragile and severely injured by a ricochet, though Hans-Cuff was able to get the boy to Rest-Q, who was able to deal with the human's injuries. The Robo Machines, Story 1
