Debut "Can You Dig It?"
Jazz is a cool and collected Autobot and Optimus Prime's second lieutenant. Before the war he was part of the caste tasked with cultural observation and analysis, which gave him more freedom and a wider perspective on the world than his good friend Orion Pax. Though the war has changed much of his life (he is now a skilled and deadly combatant), two things remain constant: his dedication to the friend who is now also his leader Optimus Prime, and the interest he takes in all facets of culture, wherever his travels lead. On Earth, Jazz has adopted many popular human idioms into his vocabulary, and his fascination with their music has led him to implement speakers that fire a hundred sonic booms per second into his weaponry.


Sent by the council to investigate the distress call from the Alchemor, Jazz landed not far from the scrapyard. Venturing in, he encountered Sideswipe whose attempts to challenge him were shortlived. After exchanging information with Bumblebee, Jazz found their reunion interrupted by the arrival of the Decepticon Ped. The Autobots pursued Ped underground, and Jazz was paired with Sideswipe. The pair found Ped's hideout, and were soon face-to-face with Ped himself. Jazz used a ruse to draw information out of Ped, but during the subsequent fight, he and Sideswipe were buried in rubble. When they arrived back at the scrapyard, a plan was in operation to trap Ped. After a brief setback in which the Autobots fell into a pit, Denny Clay managed to fish them out with an electromagnet. Jazz was grabbed by Ped until Sideswipe managed to anger Ped into letting go of Jazz and grab him instead. Jazz helped Sideswipe fight Ped in the stasis pod and the pair succeeded as Ped was knocked into his stasis pod by Denny who used his crane. Jazz and Sideswipe fist bumped on their success. Before returning to Cybertron, Jazz promised he'd smooth things over with the council about Bumblebee.
