    i was discussing on another thread about the possibility of breakdown defecting to the autobots, the i thought how his partnership with knockout would be affected, so my question is...

    if breakdown joins the autobots, do you think knockout will go with him?

    Nope. Knockout doesn't seem like he'd care enough about Breakdown to follow him and be an Autobot; their partnership seems mostly circumstantial, casual friends at most

    Yeah. I think Breakdown defecting would just sever any ties he once had to Knock Out... Knocky definitely wouldn't try following him.

    Doubt it. Breakdown and Knock Out are partners but not totally attached partners.

    Yeah, I can see Breakdown doing it but not Knockout. I don't think he'd follow him.

    It would be cool if Knockout had some sort of emotional attachment (maybe not love) to Breakdown and felt that Breakdowns (hypothetical) defect is a personal betrayal and wants revenge. I think it would be interesting if Knockout and Breakdown became rivals.

    I think it'd be neat if we actually saw a development of their partnership through Breakdown defecting. Like perhaps show that some Decepticons actually care for each other. Make Knockout hesitate to strike Breakdown on the battlefield, while Megs tries to make him kill Breakdown. Maybe even show Megatron kill or badly injure Breakdown and have Knockout possibly show anger towards Megatron because of it. Just an idea.

    Maybe. Knockout and Breakdown will have some trouble fitting in but of the six Cons they'd probably be the easiest to reform. They don't seem nearly as malevolent as the others.

    I'm not sure I could see Breaky going to the Autobots without Knocky. I think maybe he could become a neutralist, with Knockout sneaking out to visit him every so often with supplies and gossip.

    I don't think Breakdown would go as far as joining Starscream if he ever defected from the Decepticons. He may help SS out of a bind due to the favor, but the only scenario I could imagine BD joining SS is if they needed to work together to get out of a tight spot (MECH, bounty hunter).

    Their partners, they never said if their friends.

    Season one, episode ten.
    KnockOut, comparing Prime in vehicle mode:"Just like my friend".
    As far, as I understand, that was about BreakDown. But I cannot say, if he was serious about calling him "Friend".

    We've already seen Breakdown chatting with Vehicons. It's not much of a stretch to see them as friends. Just look in Speed Metal. Right before "flipping off" Starscream, he taps Breakdown's shoulder as if to say "Hey bro, look at this!"

    Nah, Knockouts too much of a devious fellow to even think about joining the 'bots. I'd like to see Breakdown defect, but I don't see it happening soon.

    I see Knockout's reaction as being very much "you chose to side with them, friend, so to me now you're just another Autobot" before smacking him with the ol' electric cattle prod (which is overdue a reappearance).

    This seems fairly accurate.
