Bumblebee is one of the youngest Autobots in the universe. He is a best friend and long time partner with Arcee.
Bumblebee is the Autobots' little brother. He's small, eager and at times can be a bit of a smart-mouth. Yet for all his wisecracks, he obviously idolizes the bigger robots, especially Optimus and Prowl. He is useful as a messenger and a spy; he can go where other vehicles would not dare because he does not look threatening. And his relatively small size occasionally enables him to use routes not available to the others. More than anything, Bumblebee wants to be accepted, and this sometimes causes him to take chances he shouldn't.
He transforms into a Car and he is best friends with every Autobot.During a certain battle Bumblebee was heavily damaged and was repaired and had a brand new looking armor that looks like a Urbana 500 but cannot talk anymore and only talk with music.
During a battle on Hoth Bumblebee was one of many Autobots that got turned to stone by Gigatron when the Autobots tried to team up against Gigatron. He was later unpetrified after Gigatrons Defeat.
He and Cliffjumper were hailed as heroes at the end of the Transformers Wars on Cybertron and was seen racing with the Autobot Cars.
In Darth Grievous's evil vision of the future Bumblebee was killed when the Autobot cars try to assist in the Autobots last stand. He shot over 99 enemy flyers down until he was killed by being blasted by lightning to death. As he dies he said "Its over.. we ff....fffaa...iii...iill..ed!". Cliffjumper tried to avenge his friends death with glass gass but the sith lords used the force to blast it back at cliffjumper and it totally turned both bumblebees corpse and cliff into glass and then their bodies were shattered into pieces.
As he can get up to 1.8 times more use out of a unit of fuel than the next most efficient Autobot, Bumblebee is often called upon at times of low energy resources. His visual acuity rates tops of all Autobots: he can spot a 10" × 10" object at a distance of 48 miles on a clear day. His adaptability to water environments makes him particularly important in undersea reconnaissance and salvage operations. Bumblebee is the fastest car in the universe.
