Kranix is a minor character from Transformers: The Movie. A robotic alien from the planet Lithone, Kranix was the sole survivor when he fled his homeworld as it was consumed by the monster planet Unicron. Kranix fled into deep space, only to wind up on Quintessa, home planet of the Quintessons. He was imprisoned there for a time and met the Autobots Hot Rod and Kup when they crash-landed on the planet. Moments after meeting the two Cybertronians, Kranix was dragged from his cell to be judged by the Quintessons. Found innocent by the Magistrate (who executed all prisoners regardless of the verdict), Kranix was plunged into the Sharkticon pit and ripped apart.
