The Transformers: Mystery of Convoy (戦え! 超ロボット生命体トランスフォーマー コンボイの謎(ナゾ) Tatakae! Chō Robotto Seimeitai Toransufōmā: Konboi no Nazo?), is a 1986 Family Computer video game developed by ISCO and published by Takara exclusively in Japan. It is based on the popular toyline Transformers.[1] The game was made available on the Virtual Console on June 10, 2008.[2]

The game stars Autobot protagonist Ultra Magnus. The titular Mystery is the identity of Optimus Prime's (referred to in the title as "Convoy") killer, as the 1986 film did not see a Japanese release for another four years. Thus, Optimus Prime's death was not adequately explained to the Japanese audience; this game was intended to capitalize on that gap.
