Bttf marty doc remote

"Only if it turns out that reality is actually nothing more than a holographic illusion created by the interplay of subatomic particles on a vast two-dimensional membrane."

This article covers a subject that has been deemed non-canon by either the author or the Back to the Future licensees, and thus should not be taken as a part of the "real" Back to the Future universe.

This article is about the Autobot named after the word meaning " A large amount of electricity, equivalent to 1 billion watts". You may be looking for the word as spelled and pronounced in the Trilogy, Jigowatt.
"Marty McFly, I need you to come with me. To save the future! To save everything!"
—Gigawatt requesting Marty's help

Gigawatt is an Autobot who seeks to restore the timeline to normal after it was altered by the Decepticons.


As Marty McFly is on the run from the Decepticons in Hill Valley, he is saved from what appears to be Doc Brown in the DeLorean Time Machine. The "DeLorean" turns out to be the Autobot, Gigawatt.


Gigawatt as with many of his kind can take an alternate form. His resembles the DeLorean Time Machine, and can assume the hover converted form of it. His chest in Autobot form has a mounted Flux capacitor, with the Time circuits underneath it. He appears to have two additional flux capacitors in his knees.

Behind the scenes[]

Gigawatt is the actual term for what is pronounced in the Back to the Future trilogy as Jigowatt.
