  1. Spark

    Within the narrative of the fictional Transformers universe, a spark, also called an AllSpark, is usually the "soul" of a Transformer. In the Beast Machines television series, it was also a term used for the Transformers' afterlife. In the Transformers 2007 live action film, it is a cube-shaped artifact adorned with glyphs and designs which is capable of granting independent life to normal electronic and mechanical objects and is the source of life for all Transformers. In the Transformers Animated series, it shares a similar history and capabilities with its 2007 film counterpart, but resembles the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. Usually, the Allspark is the main source of Energon, the "life-blood" of the Transformers race and "blood" of Primus. Energon is usually stored in devices caled Energon cubes. These devices are used by characters in the series, usually by the Decepticons, the main antagonists of the series. In the "Shattered Glass" universe, where the Decepticons are good and the Autobots are evil, the Transformers possess "embers" instead of sparks.
