    During the years when we had Transformers shows from Japan the English Dub would change their names for us. But some of us didn't like the names they used EX: Energon Ironhide for most of you. If you could change one name for each side in the anime's who would it be. Here mine...

    RID: Grimlock to Scavenger and Ro-tor to Vortex

    Armada: Blurr to Jazz (IDK why i think this) Wheeljack to Breakdown
    Note: I don't have a problem with the names they used for Armada but if i had to change the names i guess this would be my option.

    Energon: Downshift to Wheeljack and not change Tidal Wave name to Mirage

    Cybertron: Scattershot to Warpath and Scourge to Savage (Beast Machines reference)

    But for the record i don't really have a problem with any names used beside Grimlock's in RID and Tidalwave using the name Mirage in Energon.

    Do we have to stick to Anime? There's been a lot of Transformers over the years with ill suited or just terrible names.

    A few of my suggestions:

    RID Scourge - Nemesis Prime

    Browning - Holepunch. I just like the sound of it.

    The upcoming Japanese Dead End repaint of ROTF Breakdown - Wildrider. He has Wildrider's colour scheme. Nothing worse than an obvious homage with the wrong name.

    Classics Tankor - Octane. But most of us do that anyway.

    Energon Divebomb - Banzai-tron. I just see him as a homage. Banzai-tron is an awful name though.

    Cyberton Swerve - Hot Rod. I have a custom of Swerve as Hot Rod and it really works. Plus Swerve reminds me of the G2 comics Hot Rod anyway.

    Nightwatch Movie Optimus Prime - Nemesis Prime

    Desert Movie Brawl - Armourhide.

    Robotmasters Double Face - just call him Sideways and be done with it.

    R-Blade - Skyfire

    Kup - Breakdown

    The most awful names, to me at least, are:

    Banzai-tron
    Tigatron
    Cheetus
    G2 Sizzle. Terrible name for such a cool toy.
    R-Blade
    Alpha Trion/A3 - but then I have an unreasonable hatred of the character.
    Kup
    Ratbat
    Browning. Another cool toy.

    RID Scourge -> Nemesis Prime

    Armada Wheeljack -> Sideswipe

    Armada Sideswipe -> Nightbeat

    Energon Ironhide -> Roadbuster

    Energon Downshift -> Wheeljack

    Energon Bulkhead -> Springer

    Energon Mirage would stay as Tidal Wave

    Energon Snow Cat would stay as Cyclonus

    Energon Constructicon Maximus -> Devestator Maximus

    Cybertron Overhaul -> Trailbreaker (which he was originally going to be called)

    I agree hugely about how nightwatch should have been Nemesis Prime
