    Sari, Energon Ironhide, Kicker, Rattrap, Nightscream, Bottanica, and I'd have to say Ani. Spongebee, and Bulktrick.

    Mechafire's right, Wheelie was bloody awful. I find G1 Rodimus Prime to be rather irritating, too. Whiny little bitch is one of the most politically powerful and influential beings in known space and he moans and second guesses. He did not seem to rise to the challenge particularly well. Just my opinions, of course.

    To be fair, this was more due to the fact that they had random writers every episode, than the character. His character bio, comic book version, and every other version, is much better.

    As for bad characters overall, I'd say Megatron. You do not keep the moron who keeps trying to kill you around. Logically, every decepticon should've been gunning for him, since Megs seemed to tolerate treason so well.

    Animated Slipstream.

    Maybe I would have liked her better under different circumstances, but she was an unlikable bitch for most of her first appearance, and first impressions mean alot. Not to mention that her inclusion just shat all over the theme they were going with for the clones, and all because someone thought "lol, fandom reference" was a good idea. Also, I don't like the implications behind all the competance, wits and skill going to the girl while all the guys became bumbling screw-ups.

    Maybe if they confirm that she really was a part of Starscream's personality, and if Animated continued in comic book form to give me a reason to like her, I'll change my opinion (I hated the Constructicons at first, but Scrapper won me over with Human Error part 2), but until then, let's hope that future of female Seekers is remanded to DeviantArt, where it belongs.

    G1: Wheelie
    BW: None really
    BM: Nightscream
    RID: Tow-Line
    Armada: The five kids, Hot Shot, Cyclonus, Thrust, and Sideswipe
    Energon-Kicker and Iron hide, but r est of the majority can also qualify
    Cybertron-Clocker, Undermine, Brimstone
    Movie-Everybody except Sam, Optimus, and Bumblebee
    Animated- Professor Sumdac, Professor Princess, Nanosec, Dirt Boss.

    That's all I can think of

    I think theirs a difference between a badly written character and a poor quality character

    case and point wheelie. In the G1 cartoon he was poorly written but in his Spotlight comic I think they gave us a positive way to look at him while still being the wheelie we know.

    But I will say the Armada kids were just annoying even their concept just makes me facepalm. Also the whole Kicker Ironhide thing in energon actively put me off watching the show

    So, G1 Sky/Jetfire, BW Dinobot, Armada Starscream are all lame characters in your opinion.

    G1-Wheelie (not counting Spotlight)
    BW-Cheetor,Rattrap
    BM-I actually never saw this show
    RiD-all characters were pretty cool
    Armada-the kids
    Energon/Cybertron-didn't really see enough to have a good opinion
    Animated-Blitzwing and Sari were the worst,but they all seemed pretty lame.
