    Like the title states:
    Who do you think are the best well-written characters in a TF show?
    Here's what I think:
    G1: Starscream (Optimus follows a close second)
    BW: Dinobot- Not his clone (Nuff Said)
    BM: Cheetor (Gets into serious maturity unlike Season 3 of Beast Wars)
    RiD: Scourge ( Awesome character= Evil twin+Traitor)
    Armada: Starscream (You know why)
    Energon: Scorponok (I think)
    Cybertron: Scourge (Anti-hero Prime= :drool: , Vector Prime is a close second)
    Animated(so far): Prowl :rolleyes:

    Agreed mostly here, though I'd nominate Blackarachnia and Tarantulus for BW, and Bulkhead for Animated.

    It may be just me, but G1 Prime must have had the best writing or he wouldn't be the multi-decade spanning icon he's become. Without the first Prime right, none of the following Prime's would have succeded.

    G1: Rodimus Prime. And if you told me a year ago that I'd be calling him the most well written G1 character, I'd have laughed at you. I'm so glad I finally put my childhood nerdrage over Optimus' death behind me and watched season three with an open mind.

    BW: Rampage. "Transmutate." Nuff said.

    RiD: I guess Scourge was, but I REALLY wanna say Sky-Byte, because haiku shark ftw.

    Animated: Ratchet. Followed closely by Megatron.

    You know, thinking back, I can't say anyone was well-written in G1, they were all pretty one-dimensional to me. Well, except TFs that had whole episodes devoted to them, like Beachcomber or Seaspray.

    I notice most of the character listed above like Cybertron Scourge, Energon Scorponok, BW Dinobot are all antiheroes. So, once the real antihero of Animated shows up, we definately might agree on he/she is the best character.

    Does anyone like a certain well-written character?
    Me: BW Dinobot, BM Cheetor, Cyb Scourge, and of course Animated Prowl

    Also, what do you think is each well-written character's moment in their respective continuity?

    For example, Cyb Scourge's speech and battle with Leobreaker and Snarl in the episode Challenge

    Prowl doesn't have more development than Bumblebee and Bulkhead, so it goes to them for animated.

    With some really well written characters in both Beast Wars and Animated it's sort of a tough choice but if I had to pick just one I've got to give it to Dinobot. Of course it really didn't hurt Megatron was written so well as the temptation to try and pull Dinobot from the Maximal path.

    G1: Optimus Prime
    Beast Wars: Dinobot and Megatron
    Beast Machines: Cheetor and Megatron (the worst was primal)
    RID: Scourge
    Armada: Starscream
    Energon: Can't tell, they all suck
    Cybertron: Same as above.
    Movie '07: Prime
    Animated: Bulkhead, he has way more development than Prowl

    I think g1 Megatron was pretty well-written and consistent. As far as beast wars, almost all the charcaters well pretty well-written, so I don't think I could pick one. I never watched any of the other series.

    BW: Dinobot

    Animated: Blitzwing, He is funny as hell, He is "Bad, Badder & Nuts" all into one (Grimlock in Second)
