Optimus Prime is a fictional character created by the Transformers franchise. He is a Cybertronian, a fictional extraterrestrial species of sentient self-configuring modular robotic lifeforms (e.g.: cars and other objects), a synergistic blend of biological evolution and technological engineering. In almost every version of the mythos, Optimus is the leader of the Autobots, a faction of Transformers who are rivals of the Decepticons, another faction.

In the current series of live-action films, starting with Transformers (2007), Optimus Prime converts to a Peterbilt 379 semi-tractor or a Western Star 5700 Concept semi-tractor.
