    For the first live action movie, Jazz. Nobody I really liked died in the movie (Optimus doesn't count since he was brought back to life). For DOTM, Ironhide and Barricade.

    Ironhide, Jetfire and Que. The first two because they were just a joy to watch, everything about them was entertaining. They were actual characters. Que because he seemed really nice and helpful and I would've liked to have gotten to know him more.

    Ironhide did. Both because he never gets a break since he's died in both continuities he was a major character in. And because future films will just be missing something without him.

    Ironhide, obviously.

    I would have hated him dying no matter how he died, but I would have been satisfied if he'd gone down in battle at the end, or got killed saving Lennox or Sam.

    And if anyone actually cared that he died. That would be a huge plus.

    There are several reasons I don't like DOTM - how Ironhide was used and how he died is at the top of a long list - it disgusted me. I haven't even watched DOTM all the way through since the theater.

    I was a fan of Jazz - I think his death was a waste of a good character. It was too early in the film series to kill off an Autobot to begin with. But at least he got a mention by Prime at the end.

    Que seemed to have existed merely to die in the dramatic execution scene. I didn't care about him at all.

    The Decepticons weren't characterized enough for me to care too much when any of them died.

    Death is something these movies haven't done well at all - it's done for shock value, the gore factor, or "Look at my dark, serious movie!!!!!". But there's a lack of true drama, character, and story-telling.

    Ironhide because he was such a great character. I hope if they do come out with a sequel trilogy they take the time to develop the other Autobots like they did Ironhide. He was more than just "show up in 3 scenes, be badass, and spout one liners." Ironhide was just... Ironhide.

    My favorite Autobots were both killed. Jazz was my favorite Autobot in TF1, and Ironhide replaced him until DOTM. So, the only Autobots I actually liked were both killed off. I can't win :(
