Okay, so there’ve been about four traitors in the Movieverse. Which one was the best? In terms of ranking: Sentinel Prime (Autobot traitor) This was an obvious choice (LOL I’m still going to discuss the others). He was the driving force behind DOTM, an Autobot leader who made a secret deal with Megatron to betray the Autobots to spare Cybertron further conflict... then turns on Megatron to emerge as supreme Decepticon leader. He was the most nuanced character of DOTM, having killed Ironhide, set off an invasion, sealed off Chicago for its citizens to be massacred, and yet retaining some sympathy: he is willing to go to any lengths to restore his lost home, even to the length of enslaving another one to rebuild it. A magnificent creation, and the best thing about DOTM. Definitely first place. Dylan Gould (human traitor) He serves a dual purpose within the film: a parallel of Sam Witwicky, and a collaborator with the Decepticons and traitor to humanity. I think they focused too much on the former concept for the sake of the non-TFans; after all, the human hero needed an antagonist to fight against, as well as provide a look at the other side. They would have done better to have gone on the latter concept, which considers with the desperation of betraying his own home to survive and its possible futility; the scene where he angrily warns Carly he wants to survive and not to jeopardize it was a great highlight for Dylan. He’s also an unsympathetic villain, to balance with Sentinel’s sympathetic villain: he’s smug, selfish and spineless. He gets second place though, because of his significant role in the film. Wheelie (Decepticon traitor) His arc is a minor one, but significant: he does the Decepticons’ command because if they don’t they’ll kill him, but thanks to the Warrior Goddess he learns he doesn’t need to do whatever anyone asks, and can do whatever he feels like. With his collaboration the humans are able to find Jetfire, who is able to aid them and lead them on their way. Small, but minor. He gets third place. I wanted to include Jetfire, but realized that by his introduction he’d already changed sides to the Autobots, and that his character arc of defection was never really portrayed in the film (but it appeared in TALES OF THE FALLEN #3). Thankfully it didn’t really matter as his character was able to stand up on its own. Also for those who consider Megatron a traitor to his race, he’s not a traitor but a warlord: he started a war on his own world for ultimate power, eliminating anyone in his way, and corrupting anyone he could to further his cause.
